PeeWee soccer is not the World Cup

Social Chess is a vastly overrated chess app for iPads/iPhones. It is rated five stars by users who compare it to Chess with Friends, but who seem wholly ignorant of and its standard setting chess app.

I wrote a review of Social Chess on my Chess Skills blog this morning in which I compare the differences between Social Chess and's app with a sports metaphor: "PeeWee soccer is not the World Cup."

Read "Social Chess iPad App: Review" for the details.

    Actually, AFAIK chess is at least as widespread as soccer in terms of the number of countries where it is played.

    Of course, chess doesn't have the huge media profile that soccer has in many countries, but that doesn't mean that people aren't playing chess in very large numbers. Smile

    I presume you are talking about apps.

    Chess and Soccer aren't in the same league. Soccer is played world wide in every country of the world games are going on. In comparison to the numbers chess players to soccer participants, chess numbers are small.
