    Chess for Android

    Can anybody recommend any program?
    I used Fritz on Windows Mobile, but don't think they have it for Android.

    Cool

    I don't, recommend or not-recommend, it becasue I dont have one... but this one was suggested in a FICs news item number 1475

    "A new version of Yafi (ver. 0.6.25 for Android) has just been released. It includes a new icon, so don't get surprised. The most wanted features of the GUI (rematch, support and closing boards) are now included. You can find Yafi at this URL: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...id=pl.mg6.yafi

    .. this Caketin is full of little spiders and watermelon seeds.....

    ..Chess is all about fear and psychology

    ..Chess is like an exam..... you havent studied for

    ..If you're good at Chess it means you are very intelligent and could potentialy do great things
    ..... but that you might have wasted that playing way too much chess

    Droidfish is worth taking a peek at. It's basically Stockfish, so it's quite strong.

    Yafi is an android client for FICS. There is also one for ICC.
    I never tried to play chess against human from touch screen, will give it a go tonight.
