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.
Good for studying I use this program to read chess books now. You can comment moves, enter variations etc. Only drawback is it enters second choice as the main line instead of the variation. If this were customizable I'd reverse it.
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.
Need update This was the best chess apps but now it needs update to keep the position. "Analyze this" is more enjoyable to play although lacking some features droid fish has. It now become a must that droid fish need feature of engine match and kibitz. Hope Peter realized this.
Shut down option needed Shut down option needed. It drains power ...all we can do is turn ponder off..still not enough
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
Excellent. Very clean and fast with plenty of options to toy with. Only wished the playing strength of the engine would have been expressed as an approx. ELO value. No idea what percentage setting corresponds with my skill level.
This app is very good This app is very good works well the menu's are clear! But unless you are a strong player and I am not a strong player start with something else then give this a try!
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!!!
castling Doesnt let me castle at times *edit* Unless im mistaken on the format of castling in this app it still doesnt let me. I already know the rules of castling.
Fantastic app. One little request My only wish is engine time limit in lightbulb mode to save battery. To me 2-3 seconds is usually enough, anything more is a waste of power. I constantly have to switch analysis on/off which is annoying esp. that it also removes the arrows and the engine output. An analysis time limit setting and a button at the bottom telling the engine to continue (if the user wants more depth in some positions) would solve this. Every Android chess app should have this feature as they run on phones with limited battery.
Bought all others, this one is the best and free! The fact is I can use the same UCI engine (Stockfish) both for DroidFish and for Chess PGN Viewer. Also it is possible to cooperate these apps via clipboard - without any cloud's headaches... Very strong pair of apps. I'd say, GMs of Android apps!
The arrow buttons and algebraic notations are too close to each other that when I'm trying to analyze a game I always accidentantly pressing the notations therefore losing the position I'm analyzing. And the arrow buttons beside of setting it on its largest setting it's still too small for grownups.
WORLD'S BEST CHESS ENGINE FOR MOBILE!! Hi ,I m a middle class rated player.I have tried a lot of chess engines for my mobile but this is the best.Even my computer chess engines like Houdini 4 ,stockfish 6 can't defeat it!!So simple it's above than all chess engines.
Droid Fish ...its..Chess Engine is World Best Chess Engine......For Professional player and other chess lover.. Respected ...sir....But only one we required give the chess pieces......quality....many types..just like..(.alpha.....royal..with Big pieces.....).we are waiting sirji.....many thanks....to you....In Advance....
Awesome Best chess app to learn for any one.. it opens the door to learn whatever you wish to learn... it's like you have the tutor with you... Thanks Peter for sharing this wonderful app with all of us..
Feature request Peter, could you add different board Styles as well as different piece sets? Also FICS / ICC online play?
Everything a chess fan needs! --and it's FREE!! If you are a true chess lover, this is a great help. If you think YOU are good at chess, you complain.
Need a Stockfish Benchmark Hi, pls include a simple Stockfish Benchmark that returns the kilo nodes/second of thinking running at least 2minutes just enough to stabilize the CPU. -cheers!
Great app! but I don't even know the meaning of blue and red lines. You should've introduced it in the program.
Engine match? Very good GUI now. I would love to see the ability to run engine vs engine matches instead of just computer vs computer
Good but lacking customisable time control Great app but would be a lot better if it was possible to adjust clock for one side.
Arti.inte. of app do not allows to check mate opponent App don't allow you to play the move which is fair in any sense, as it is unexpected to arti. Inte.of data base and create more damage to opponent. Too much protectionism.
Great app But please is it possible to name the openings. I'm a learner and being given a name for an opening would help.
Quality This is a benchmark that few programmers ever achieve. Outstanding work, well done. Even after 2 or 3 years of use this app is still unequaled.
Can't stand waiting ten minutes for CPU first move. Ridiculous flaw.
Handy, but needs save function. Is definitely a handy tool for analysing games. But would be extremely helpful to have the save function fixed. Seems most if not all android users have this issue. Please fix and it will be a 5 star tool.
The app lacks media card access even so very good
It looks promising but why can't it load pgn files from anywhere in my sdcard? I have to put my pgn files in its own directory? Seriously?
Not to pleased with update I am sam galaxy tab and there is no new game option that i can see of as one of the previous users stated.I held down both menu option and m which brings about the options section but no new game ...it wouldnt be so bad if the edit board feature still worked than i could do it manually but that doesnt seem to want to function right aswell.All in all it was a pleasing app up until the update which brought upon some of these flaws.
Add Engine vs Engine It would be perfect to add engine vs engine because "Chess for all" doesn't work
Great chess app Tried a lot of chess engines/games for android and I can say this is the best one - features, presentation, energy consumption, UI. Thanks dev!
Wtf All options r changed in this update...where is the option of "start new game" plz tell me...
Best chess app on Android Sir can u add chess960 option to it... Thanks in advance
Calibrate strength in Elo measures This is a great app. Was wondering if you could calibrate playing strength in Elo terms......
