Even the paid version annoyingly keeps on asking me to rate it. There's no way to tell it to not keep on bothering me with it. Very annoying.

Great app to play and learn from

I expected bought Chess will be key to switch-off ads in Free Chess or that Chess will import my settings from Free Chess. It is unpleasant to tap all settings again. Especially in that auto scrolling settings mode. But, well, it is once, after buying, so I will try to survive it... Chess free is great (after my own settings), so I hope full Chess will be too. Edit: Free Chess have good dark brown background, but distraction by ads. Bought Chess have too light too sharp red background without good reason. Nothing is ideal... Edit: OK, I have changed background now. I changed board and pieces immediately after instalation, but I did not notice changing of background then. It looks to be OK now.

I finally found the payable version... So how do I move all the stats from chess free to this version... I'll set 5 stars if that is possible
