Needs major update to worth full version price

I really love this app but unfortunately I cannot say at the moment the full version is worth the price. To me, several key features are missing - by order of importance:

1) Many people complain about bugs and problems with the engine - the only one I am currently aware of is that the game is unaware of draw situations - I need to determine that by myself. I am a beginner and for me levels 1-4 are quite good match, so I didn't check higher levels.

2) Playing with other people online.

3) One of the strongest features of this game is its graphics - I do not own an iPhone 4 (yet) but it seems the new version does not support the retina display! And speaking on graphics - what's up with making it an iPad app too (same binary).

4) Saving and loading of games (I mean not just the current game that I am playing).

5) Exporting (and maybe even importing) of games (some time I would like to share my games with others or continue a game in other app on a computer.

* In general, it seems this app is very seldom updated, which again makes me wonder if it is worth the hefty 8$ price on the full version. With some effort, it seems this could be the best chess app on the iPhone and would even be worth (to me) the full price. Currently, I would not pay for this more than 2$.
