There are a few apps running the stockfish engine now. droidfish is still the fastest and consistently search 15+ plys deep.

Lollipop epic fail Brilliant program, with excellent engine of huge playing strength right in your poket! Sadly enough, so far several engines (most of them actually) stopped working. This means that not only the engine that comes with the apk fails, but so do the other ones, with the error: "Engine error: Failed to start engine". I am sure the dev team will fix this soon so here are the five stars (or else nobody will use this beautiful free app. any more which would be a shame).

That stockfish engine... Everything is awesome, except I don't think app uses high priority at all. On my Z1 Compact, sometimes with bit modified settings, I have to wait minutes until cpu makes a move. Now I could say that's because I set highest difficulty and managed time intervals, but my phone is cold, not like when I play cpu intensive game and battery doesn't drop really fast what makes me think that app uses somewhat limited cpu priority
