Looking for Chess for Android on Amazon - dgt support on kindle fires

Post by adams161 » Sun Sep 08, 2019 11:15 am

I was chatting with someone who could not get his DGT board to work on Chessclub via its ICC for windows or Blitzin He did get it to work on chessbase. Now i know there are different brands now so i recommended chess for android as it supports multiple DGT boards and connects to chessclub. But he is an apple user. I suggested he could get an android tablet. But what simpler tablets to get than the kindle fires. Low cost but generally very good.

now i could not find searching "chess for android amazon" or "chess for android amazon aart" the program i know that supports DGT boards. My own program lantern chess was not in the amazon app store for many years after it was first in play store. But i found since i was not using play store services that my Android APK uploaded just fine to amazon with no changes or no different apk so it was no work but setting up the amazon page.

Sorry, not on Amazon. My app is only available through Google Play. You can, of course, sideload the APK on any device. For example, here on a Nook eInk-display (courtesey Guido Lehwalder).
