A chess engine configurable for playing a wide variety of chess variants.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]H. G. Muller wrote on 2012-12-30 UTCI thought that Game Courier is web based. So you should be able to use it through the standard browser app. I made a similar turn-based server for Seirawan Chess, and had no problem at all to use it from Android. It would also be quite trivial to provide a second access page with a layout especially tailored for good dislay on a smartphone. I agree it would be good to have a dedicated Android client that could also be used locally with engines. I asked Aart if he would be willing to let me patch his Chess for Android to implement some other variants, but he did not jump to the occasion. So I guess we are on our own. Problem is that I never programmed on Android, and would not even know how to make a 'Hello World' program. So I would have to learn it,and acquire the necessary development software. I did already buy a Galaxy Gio for the purpose. My plan is to write an Android front-end for WinBoard.
