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

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/details?id=pl.mg6.yafi

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

Yes, it smashed me quickly in the first (albeit a tempo) game. It claims to support UCI, I'll try it with other engines.

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.
