The best Android chess app! In my opinion Shedder is the best chess application for Android devices and it has been so for many years. The latest material UI is spot on; it's like Google had written the app themselves. Just the right mix of features vs simplicity. Plus, it's bundled with puzzles! The author is extremely helpful and responsive. I'd love to see the excellent Chess Tutor software available as an app as well.
Goid but clashes with spotify Good app but While playing you cannot listen to spotify without the music lagging and stopping for half a second EACH MOVE. Very annoying
Solid chess ai, lackluster coach. Defiantly a good chess program, the opponent ai is quite good. My only complaint is with the "coach", it seems to be completely focused on material instead of position and tactics. I will often sacrifice a piece to gain position, often to start a guaranteed mate in 2 or 3 and the coach will tell me it's a bad move, that I should take back.
Promising, but appears to be abandoned This could easily be the best Android chess app, but at present it needs polishing. The UI desperately needs to be overhauled and modernised, and many needed features should be added. Examples include auto-save, fine-grained time controls and pause clocks option, full move list in game with random access, and extra info like the opening name/code, more detailed statistics, etc. Full game analysis would also be great.
My favorite CPU challenger on Android. Great chess app with many options. * Please fix the highlighted chess piece box on the chessboard so there is an option to remove the highlighted piece, it's distracting.
In comparison to the iOS version it's lame. Awful implementation hopefully you don't get a chance to see what a great job they did on the iOS version and what a hack job the slapped onto the Android platform.
* fixes a crash on Android 5 (Lollipop)
