Pasting PGNs a problem I enjoy playing through my games in analysis mode to learn more but pasting PGN to Edit Board either gives me "Invalid Side" or "Invalid Piece" even though I'm pasting the exact same PGN, from clip board, that other programs open with no problems. Good strong engine though. Board colors and piece selection leave something to be desired.

Either super buggy, or super unintuitive. It took me a while to figure out that you're using the physical menu button, and pretty extensively too. The newer Android versions are trying to move on from the menu button and it makes it difficult to use this app on my S5. Needing a folder just for Droidfish is awful, and I can't turn off the analysis without killing the process because it goes back and forth between "thinking" and "analyzing" while drawing the same processor/battery usage, and I can't get loading PGNs with multiple turns to work.
