Testers Needed for a New Chess Game

Hola darlings! Out of the blue I received an email earlier today from a perfectly agreeable gentleman who is looking for people to try out a new chess game (and give critical feed-back) that is accessible for playing on an ipod or cell phone. I am ignorant of such devices, not owning either, so I cannot help. But I offered to post his company's offer here, and he accepted, so here is the information: My name is David Calkins and I'm with Newtoy Inc., a small startup game developer in Dallas, TX. I have an unusual request...We make games for the iPhone and iPod Touch and our first game is called Chess With Friends. It's a correspondence-style game that aims to reintroduce the joy of chess to a broad audience by giving players a game of chess in their pocket that they can play with their friends anywhere, anytime. The first version of Chess With Friends was released two weeks ago. It's gotten some good reviews so far, but we want to take it a step further and create something that chess-lovers will really love. Seems like the best way to do that is solicit some expert feedback. That's where you come in :) I was wondering if you (or any chess-playing friends, for that matter) have an iPhone or iPod Touch and would be interested in checking out a free version of our game? We'd really like to hear what you think. You can find out more about the game here. The game is currently offered free at the app store via this link:http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=295436227&mt=8 Please send your feedback to David Calkins. Our legions of fans (all four of you), be kind to David and volunteer! Smooches, Jan
