looking for some thoughts on which chess app is the best.
Chess for Android IMO. on the market and really good.
^^ that one is decent.. but the easy level is too easy, and the next level up is too hard... And I wish it took up more of the screen...
Chess by Odesys, LLC
You can play online with it also (FICS client for online gaming). It's $4.99 in the app market.
Caissa is the strongest of the four. Chess is the weakest, but it looks the nicest. Chess Classics is 3D. Versus allows internet playing. But since Caissa's next update includes multiplayer, I chose that. I think 3D chess on the iPhone uses its capabilities, but if you want a program to play chess, it's a lot easier playing on a 2D board (which Classics has, but Caissa is still stronger). I was stuck between Caissa and Versus, but I remember Versus from jailbreak and noted that I didn't see many online players...actually, the only players I was able to play with Versus Chess on the jailbreak was the default computer players which wasn't a challenge at all.
You can buy a chess game, and you can play with it at home or office.
My Favorite Chess App
So far my favorite Android Chess App for playing correspondence chess is "Chess Mates" by Epic Pockets Software. They got some pretty fun and entertaining Chess Sets you can use which keeps the game fresh for me. You can download it at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.epnet.chessmatesfree
Invite me to a game I would love to play against you "EpicOfChaos" is my name.
Hello, I recently developed a free application for android. It's not dedicated to chess, but it can be a nice tool for studying chess, it has pgn file support. With it, you can open/search chess games db, or even search directly to chess-db.com, take little notes, with chess games included, and your own comments, backup webarchives with wikipedia chess pages, and much more... You can even display chess games on your tv (if you have a chromecast, or access to the internet), or display chess games you have on your phone on other pc, tablets, or phones of the local network.
