Is there an accessible multiplayer chess app for iOS?

iOS & iPadOS Gaming


I'm looking for a way of playing chess over IOS with my dad. I'm blind, he's not. I was wondering if there were any IOS chess games I could use to play him remotely?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Search this site for Chess-wise Online.

Shredder Chess is another that I have used in the past, but I don’t think that it has multiplayer support. This may have changed.

You can play over the Internet using FICS, which is an acronym for the Free Internet Chess Server. This is a feature of Chess-Wise Pro. It, like most apps that will work with Voice-Over, does permit you to set up a board position from which you can resume play.

Also, if you want a more flexible chess app for improving your game and seeing your progress as you improve, try Shredder Chess. Start at the lowest level of skill. If you win, it will play stronger next time. If you lose, your rating, and it's next game, gets weaker. The ranges are from an ELO rating of 850 to 2,600. About the only thing that you cannot do is to set up a board position and play from that point.

The Chess game that comes with Mac can use Game Center to arrange a game between you and another player.

I'd recommend Chess 42. Here is the app link and it's fully accessible! The game is played through iMessage. I personally use it frequently!

Chess42 - Chess for iMessage by Handheld Designer, LLC

Hope this helps! Have a great day!
