IMPORTANT! For all users who get a File Not Found error on first run. In any file manager do this:
1. Look for a folder called Android/obb/name.duzenko.
chessopeningexplorer on sdcard or external storage
2. There should be a 200+ MB file - it's a zip archive, so you can open with any app that supports zip.
3. Create a folder on a storage that has the most free space named "Chess Opening Explorer". (Note CapitaL letters - androis might be case-sensitive)
4. Extract files from zip (2) to the folder (3).
If it still does not work, try (3) and (4) on another storage.

Good but.. Is it possible, after exploring the opening, to see or replay the whole game? Secondly, possibility to add personal notes for each variant or move would be great.

Terrific What I've been looking for. Would be even better though if it had an engine to analyze and play against from the end of the line.
