Chess for Android consists of a chess engine and a GUI. The application accepts moves through the touch screen, trackball, or keyboard. An optional "move coach" highlights valid user moves during input and last played engine move. Full game navigation buttons enable users to correct mistakes or analyze games. Games can be exported and imported as FEN/PGN to and from the clipboard or saved and loaded as files by long-pressing the notation window. The engine plays at various levels (including random, against itself in auto-play, or free-play, where the game can be used as a "magnetic chessboard"). The user can play either side and, independently, view the board from the perspective of white or black.
The application supports the Universal Chess Interface (UCI) and Chess Engine Communication Protocol (WinBoard and XBoard), which allows users to play against more powerful third party engines or even play tournaments between engines.
