      Hi phranck,

      Eventually, I would like to have a version for German and other languages. I was not sure if anyone was interested in it. Your recommendation will prompt me to move it higher on the priority list. I will probably support Android devices first and then look at implementing international versions.

      Thanks again for your comment.

      I use an engine called faile. I am thinking about upgrading the engine. I just need to find something that is fast enough to also render the 3D graphics at 30 frames per second on lower end mobile devices.

    I have a lot of friends that have “Chess With Friends” on iPhone. I don’t have an iPhone but do have a MacBook. Does your app allow me to play online against Chess With Friends App Players?
