For a free, no-ad app, this is an excellent chess GUI. Pre-installed SF7 is a nice bonus. Wishlist: 1) 2 engine instances at the same time. Either for computer vs player (one instance for computer and the other instance for analysis, so that hash table is not shared), or for tournaments (two different engines) 2) names for openings 3) sub sec time increments (for example 100ms, 250ms, 500ms) 4) multi PV analysis 5) hash table occupancy indicator
GREAT DROIDFISH Being a chess lover and a tournament player in our locality I'm so grateful to have this Droidfish GUI in my phone for free! I can practice, anayze & play using Stockfish chess engine (one of the top chess engine on earth nowadays) anytime, anywhere! One great feature is that I can load & use ctg opening books! But how I wish that Chess960 feature will be added in the coming updates of Droidfish wherein I can play & analyze Chess960 againts Stockfish & other chess engines! I'm giving it a high 5 rating!!!
Great app! I've read other people's comments having issues with the new update. They're having trouble finding the new game option, among other things. Well those people are just plain stupid. The app looks good, clean, easy to use and does what it's supposed to do. Kudos to the developer. Although there are some features that could be implemented in the future, the app is great as it is right now. Deserves 5 stars!
Very good but.. I wish there was a way to connect via Bluetooth to make a match between devices like stockfish vs stockfish just to know which device has better CPU ram and to see how it comes up in practical uses like a chess match.
Great Suggestions: 1) Easier position set up. It's too difficult now. 2) Drag and drop for playing a move. You have to touch twice now. 3) Placing the arrow keys and the notations a bit more far. I'm losing positions now. 4) Bigger engine fonts. It aches eyes to look at the lines now. 5) Opening names. It would be great if it was introduced. 6) Different engines. Engine vs engine always ends in draws now..
Brilliant! Amazing! Now I'v a world's strongest chess Engine in my pocket! This little handy app can't only help you play with but can also ANALYSES given position display evaluation. The most amazing part is it shows depth it's goes while searching and shows MATE after 10-20. When I'm away and some position hit my head i use it to check. Makes me gel as if I'm using my Stockfish 6 on my PC. Don't see no of downloads (many have millions download, much more than this one) but this is the best "portable chess app + Chess Engine" u can carry in your little gadget.TonsOfThanks Peter
