The current version of the app picks up images quite nicely, but when you try to open it with either DroidFish or 'Scid on the go' it takes you to some random program there.
Thank you for improvements It works now on my phone. Thank you for this app. It was very helpful. 👍👍👍
Very Nice Great with Chess book reader. Also Chess Life. Makes studying much easier.
Does work on LG G3 Recognition is tricky but does work. Hold your phone horizontal!! Watching a tutorial vid as recommended seems wise indeed - this took me some time to figure out. Also, I tested in the train. But the app is really best at home at a desk.
Next best thing to companion pgn files for chess books... Maybe someday chess publishers will post pgn files for games in their books....until then, this app works like a charm. I use LG phone to text chess book diagrams of game positions to Fritz 13 on PC (copy and use "Paste Game" feature on Fritz 13). Wonderful!
Incredible This has made my chess studying 10X more efficient. I can quickly scan a position from a book, and start to analyze it on Stockfish all on my phone.
Release 1.16 fixes some autofocus problems that caused traps on some devices. If this version does not recognize diagrams then in settings uncheck the continuous video autofocus flag.
Release 1.15 allows recognition in both portrait and landscape mode, and deals correctly with orientation changes. If you don't want automatic screen rotation just disable it on the device, or follow the instructions above to reinstall ChessOcr 1.13 (which does not autorotate) and disable updating of the app.
