Great! Best chess program I have probably used. Tried using it against Ubisoft's Chessmaster on a AMD A8-6600K (Quad-Core 3.9GHz) with 8GB RAM and It won everytime. It even won all online games that I've tried. I still havent tried it against a Chess program using the same stockfish engine on my PC yet. I think the apps analysis mode is great, though I don't like playing againt it. There should be some kind of Dynamic Difficulty for someone to actually enjoy playing this. I'd like to see it implement the ELO rating system too.

Strongest there is No nonsense chess GUI with Stockfish. Great for analysis on the go. Good PGN support. Not my favourite app for playing chess against my phone, but still very good.

Great! But, I hope there will be a "study" feature where Stockfish comments the move given, and suggests better move.. But, overall, it's great !
