For long commutes, car rides and just plain old boredom, the Tall Chess phone lets users play a life-like simulation game of chess directly from their iPhones.

What's unique about the Tall Chess app is that the board game surface extends to each end of the iPhone screen allowing for a distraction-free and focused round of chess. All of the chess piece graphics have been custom-designed to appear high resolution on the iPhone screen. You can play with real time players around the world with virtual players coming soon. You can even go back and review what your last move was by simply swiping your finger across the screen. If you're really into chess, you can even export the round of chess your playing into algebraic notation for record keeping.

No matter how you choose to play with Tall Chess, you'll kill time effectively and stretch your brain muscles.
