One of the most popular chess apps for Windows 8 users, Chess Lv.100, has been updated to make use of Windows 8.1 support
Without a doubt, chess is my favorite puzzle and brain game and I play it almost on a daily basis. Be it on online websites or, of course on my Windows 8 tablet, enjoying some of the best chess apps from the Windows Store, I never get bored playing it. Some of you might still feel nostalgic about Chess Titans, so read our article on how you can get it back if you want it so badly.
Now, to get back to Chess Lv.100 app, which is one of my favorite apps to play in Windows 8 and Windows RT, as well. Recently, I discovered that the chess app has been updated, though even until now, a release note hasn’t been made available. But, my best guess is that the developer has added Windows 8.1 support. What this means for this app is that possibly you’ll be able to use the bigger-sized tiles on the start screen. I also suspect that some bug fixes have taken place, as well as improvements in the stability of the app.
