Really Nice Software Overall I have to give this Chess GUI an 'A'. You can see a lot of thought and hard work has gone into this program. That said there are to items I would like to see addressed. 1: Would like a option to change to Background Color of the Engine Analysis window that pops up/ overlays over the notation window. 2. Would like to see a option for Engine vs Engine with two 'different' programs, such as for example Stockfish vs Komodo and not the current engine plays itself.
AN UPDATED UI IS EXPECTED WITH ADDED FEATURES AND STYLES! Engine vs Engine, ability to add 2 or more PGN files into 1 single PGN file and star marking our favourite games in files and other markings for later references or reviews etc will be very handy , Full support for chess 960 where all the 960 positions are given in the app and we can access them and play any position any time, some basic interface improvements like showing legal squares when we are to move a piece and threatened pieces when any piece is capturable by the chosen piece.
It's great in the next update put the opening name so I know what kind of opening it is when I play the game. when is the next update going to happen as it has been a long time.
The mobile chess interface and game to use in android. Droifish is robust, has extensive PGN & analysis support, and has useful features. I find myself converting many .cbh files to pgn in Chessbase and using them in Droidfish for study and analysis. Obviously,this app is not for the casual player. Although you can add more unessential features such as kibitzer,etc. (a la Chessbase), what makes the Droidfish highly efficient is that the developer has thoughtfully chosen the most productive features for a mobile implementation. It will no doubt continue to get better due to the dedication and the developer's desire to provide us with a high quality mobile chess game that-unfairly-does not even ask us for donation. I for one, very much appreciate his work. I can play, study,analyze productively. Considering that eye catching graphics do not have anything to do with chess, it is simply the most complete chess game for android. Fantastic!
The Best I've played chess since 2nd grade so its a passion. I have at least 6 other chess apps on my tablet, and this is the only one I use every day. My only real issue with the app is the strength setting is in terms of percentage and not ELO, ELO numbers, mean a lot to a chess player; and to have the strength of the opponent as a meaningless 5,10, 50%- of what? Its well below the standard of this app. The GUI is excellent, and Stockfish is of course one the best Engines. I would prefer Delphi or another engine that better simulates human club players for the 2nd Engine. The Presentation, the smoothness of the movement; good rich intuitive menus. Easily moving from Human v Human to Human v Machine allows me to practice against favored openings and key positions. The computer v Computer play allows me to see a position played out by opponents that are a little better than myself or lightyears better. I said, I love chess, I reach for this app everyday. I really think the devs got this one right: but it could be even better!
Great! Best chess program I have probably used. Tried using it against Ubisoft's Chessmaster on a AMD A8-6600K (Quad-Core 3.9GHz) with 8GB RAM and It won everytime. It even won all online games that I've tried. I still havent tried it against stockfish on PC tough. The apps analysis mode is great, though I don't like playing againt it. The Strength percentage doesn't really tell much about the difficulty. Automatic strength adjustment should do if its difficult to implement the ELO rating system.
- Updated Stockfish to version 6.
- Auto forward mode when replaying games.
- Translation updates.
