Chess With Friends
Chess With Friends was released tonight. I just picked it up and am planning on making a few of my friends and family get it too. I must admit I've been looking forward to this one since I read about it on one of the other app review sites. Unfortunately I've only played a game against myself so far, but it seems very polished. You can play against friends in your contact list or other random players with the app, or play a hotseat game with a friend (or yourself in my case). It also appears to keep a history of played games that you can watch move-by-move later which is neat. You can also go through the move history for games currently in progress. There's no options for different boards or pieces, but the ones used are pretty good. And setting up a user account was fairly easy. The app page says they will release future updates with things like chat and computer opponents as well. So far so good.
