Chess mobile apps for your Android device:





If you want to get the best app for your Android smartphone/tablet you must download Droidfish, by Peter Ă–sterlund. This app combines the strength of Stockfish with the ease of use of a handling device. You can play against a player stronger than a top Grand Master laying down on your couch or sit on your train place with just a phone cheaper than 100$.

With the Analysis Mode you can also check your games and see where you made a mistake.

The current version of the application has issues with CTG books: it doesn't read properly the percentage of the variants at the start.

You can also buy my opening book to get extreme performances, as long as installing the 3-4-5 pieces Syzygy tablebases.

Acid Ape Chess Grandmaster Edition:


A paid app with which you can match two engines.

Several things are missing in this app: the possibility to set a custom number of thread in the match engine vs engine; the use of a given opening book; the possibility to use the Syzygy tablebases; the possibility to change any setting in general. The engines will start with a fixed number of threads, a fixed hashtable size and nothing else.

You can export your games in pgn and make an odd time match when you are confronting the engines.

Chess engines:


Want to have the strongest engines for your Android device? Download them from my Free chess engines page.

Unzip and move the program binary in the 'uci' folder that is inside the Droidfish one (complete path: /storage/emulated/0/Droidifish/uci). On Acid Ape Chess Grandmaster Edition just unzip the program, place it where you want and select it through the Engine panel inside the app.
