New opensource GUI on android for UCI engines

Post by j_romang » Thu May 19, 2011 11:45 am

I created an opensource GUI for UCI engines an Android phones, inspired by Aart Bik's work with UCI engines on Android and Peter Österlund's Droidfish :)

The application is in early alpha stage, but you should be able to play ! Feel free to comment and contribute.

App link (screenshots) : https://market.android.com/details?id=n ... rch_result
App forum : http://www.chesspad.net/forum/
Source code : http://www.assembla.com/code/chesspad/subversion/nodes

UCI engines are downloaded from my website to the phone : if you want your engine to be usable in the GUI, just send me an ARM executable :-)

Thanks, I didn't think it was possible to run UCI engines on a phone before seeing your GUI...that's what decided me to try :D

Did you know that there is already a ChessPad program?
