    Default [App] Native Chess Application available

    We made a free native Chess application for the iPhone based on the GNU Chess engine.

    The application is in a pre-release stage. Anyone dares to give it a try?

    Nice for first release. I was playing with it.

    To be honest I don't know how to play chess. Any guide or reference somewhere? Thanks!

    Suggestion:
    Improve the text where it says illegal move. Maybe bigger and a beep sound would help.

    Thanks You. This was a an app that the iPhone was desperately missing. So far so good on 1.1.1. I like the level selector. Would be nice if the board could be bigger to take advantage of the great iPhone screen. Maybe the taken pieces can go on the top or bottom.

    Merry Christmas and keep up the good work.

    A sound would not be a very good idea I think; most false moves arise from tapping the wrong square (they are small!) and you know it's happened as soon as it's happened.

    Thanks, good start on this app. One bug (you've probably noticed it already): when castling on the Queen side, the icon for the rook doesn't get moved.

    Installing Cydia programs on a phone that has no internet connection: read this.

    Editing binary .plist, .strings, .nib and .xib files:
    * on your computer: Windows tool / conversion website.
    * on your iPhone: convert those files in a terminal with plutil (installed with Erica Utilities) or edit them with iFile (Cydia links).

    Am I missing something here. You can do all sort of illegal movements with this and always says "alert" after every move. It has only a look for a chess and playing is not acording to chess rules and no "human vs machine" or visa versa option or two player option. Maybe because it is the first demo release.

    Strange, I get to do only legal moves, against the machine. What firmware are you on?

    rochade does not work correctly. The Tower seems to remain in the cornerat least graphically. Later you find that the chess program did indeed assume the tower was moved correctly during the rochade )-:
    Otherwise a great idea to make chess available on an iPhone.
