My dad and I use Chess.com to play each other on our phones, but I feel bad because I've beat him the past 200 games and he wishes that I could give him take backs.

I know that there are chess programs / web apps like ICC which allow take backs, but is there a mobile app that does?

We both use iPhone.

The chess.com site allows "take back", if your opponent agrees, in unrated games only & they have an iPhone app for both free and premium members but I have to say that I have not tried it as I do not have an iPhone so do not know for sure if that feature is available in the app.

  • Thanks. I don't think this works on the app but we can use the mobile site instead.

The Lichess app/website allows players to request takebacks. It's also generally a good chess site. (Also, at least on Android, the mobile app is way better than Chess.com's IMO, but I'm biased.)

The official iOS download link: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/lichess-free-online-chess/id968371784
