Improvements. 1. Put the engine start/stop button under the board, for one-touch operation. Also Blunder Check (not wasting time with menus). 2. The games list must include searching for its number in the pgn. Example: find Game 498 with search. 3. When I add engine analysis, I frequently want to cut off the moves beyond a certain point. This is not yet possible. Priority patch please! 4. Generally, the piece sets are excellent, but the Alpha set is my favourite and is not included.

A very good app to study games with. Have it for many years. A new suggestion: The new version of Android does not allow installation of other chess engines. Can the next update come with Stockfish 15 and also Komodo 13 (since it is better in terms of positional analysis from my understanding. Thanks in advance!

Like the interface and annotation feature but there's a drawback everytime facing when I got to change the UCI engine, it requires dig into the main seating in order to change the engine, which is totally annoying, fix it by adding a shortcut option on the main home interface which would switch between engines, and better would be if there is a distribution of two prompt one for engine which is for game analysis and another one for engine for playing against.
