Database access is buggy and unreliable. This could be the best chess app around, but access to the database frequently drops off...I've used this app with a Nexus 5 and currently a Moto E running android 5.1. Frequent problems with both phones. Developer responds to emails, but I still can't access database.
New feathure is needed I am playing at a server where I can download game in txt format. Please make an option "to compose" png file just pasting appropriate text there. Thank you. On the same time I would add that the program is really helpful, just to add more games there and weak gamers as well. Update: please add button "Exit"
BLACKMAMBA The app is messing up already, when I try to access on-lines games or opening. I thought this would help me on my way to the World Open. Trying to figure out whether to uninstall then reinstall,and if googleplay will charge me again
Crashes frequently on Samsung Galaxy I have tried all the recommended fixes and it is still unstable. Upgraded O/S, delete reinstall app, deleted great games databases on the SD card, cleared the cache, etc. Very frustrating. I have noticed a tendency for it to crash about the time one side or the other has a significant advantage. Maybe that will give the developers something to look into.
needs position evaluation --the 3.0 update is A++++ Excellent and unmatched after all the updates. The stockfish and fritz 14 engines make this app tops in there field. update is very well done, Highly recommend. Love the engine analysis. After this app I deleted quite a few chess apps. A versitile app that has a database with commentaries by the professional players similar to the megadatabase only much smaller. Want to know why Leko played certain moves against Anand check out this app for a move by move explanation. This app will set up pieces for you to do a positional study. The functionality is excellent on my 3.2 android Thrive What it lacks unlike say pocket Fritz or Fritz is an analysis engine stated who is ahead in a position. It also will not play a game of chess against you. Check out the shredder app. Games can be transferred from your chessbase files to this app. Finally chessbase has updated this app frequently since purchasing showing strong support. For the price an excellent buy.
Chessbase It always crashes when you try online database, opening book etc. No opening tree for your games also. It only works for the engines but then there are plenty of free apps with stockfish 6, why pay 10 euros for this one? Totally useless as a database. I would like a refund.
