BEST CHESS APP EVER Best chess app in the market... at least for training and many other uses... whishlist: 1. Would be nice if the blindfold mode could be accesed from a button outside the settings menu... its tedious to look for it every time.. 2. At some place please put the name and eco code of the opening when watching games. 3. The app should open any pgn or cbg file from any position inside the phone. Every time has to copy and paste on the directory. Thankss a lot... LOVING THIS APP...
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
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!
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..
New update is terrible This program was great when it came out, but has gotten progressively worse with each update. First, the update eliminated the ability to view saved games on the screen. This latest update eliminated the "New Game" feature!!! That is the most essential feature for anyone that wishes to use the app more than once. It was once a great app, but now I have to uninstall it from my phone.
It's has errors Sometimes it tells me to move my pawn into an empty square diagonally, pawns can only move diagonally while taking a piece. Hope this gets fixed as seems really good apart from this.
- Permission handling for Android 6.
- Show usage hints on first start.
- Updated Stockfish to version 7.
- Faster updating of the move list.
- Improved move list scrolling.
- Use a drawer layout instead of the options menu to fix problems on some new devices without a menu button.
- Moved "number of search threads" from preferences to UCI engine options.
- Added configurable button action to change UCI options.
- At least Android 3.0 required.
