Newtoy Inc's comments:
Hey guys, it's Chess with Friends weekend and we want as many people to sign up as possible. Chess with Friends is free, and is the best way to play asyncronous multiplayer chess on the iPhone. CWF has been out for a long time and was a winner of the winner of the 2008 Best App Ever Awards. We want to see if we can recharge an older title and revitalize the community.

If you've played our other smash hit Words with Friends you know how this works - log in and start a game with a friend or a random opponent. While you wait for your friend to make his move, you can close the app and wait for a push notification or you can start another game (up to 20 games simultaneously).
