SmallFish Chess For iOS 6 - Free & Friends
By Ted Wong
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
*** The app is broken in iOS 10. It will not be updated as the app is here to honour the older iOS versions (where SmallFish was initially developed). ***
*** Download this app if you're interested how SmallFish worked in the old days. ***
*** This is the iOS 6 version for SmallFish, more suitable for the older devices. Please download the latest version (search "SmallFish" on AppStore) if you have later iOS installed. ***
SmallFish is an open source project based on the Stockfish chess engine. It uses the latest Stockfish chess engine (Stockfish 4.0), rated about Elo 3230+ and is therefore one of the strongest chess apps.
The app derives directly from the Stockfish iOS app and borrow code from SmallChess (another top chess app) to create stunning chess playing experience for absolutely no cost! The strongest chess app is free, something very hard to believe but it's true.
SmallFish offers you three distinct ways to improve your game. You can review your game with comments, or study how Stockfish thinks, or track your progress. You can also control the internal engine parameters.
The interface is an example of a "flatten" design - dropping of heavy textures and the addition of several new simple user interface elements.
SmallFish is simply amazing.
What's New in Version 3.0.2
- Added iPad support
Not sure how the algorithm calculates the moves, but it's interesting to come up with something like this. Haven't seen any other app doing that.
Thanks. Will this get updated for iOS 7?
The latest Stockfish makes this app the strongest chess playing app on any iOS device. I like it!
