User reviews of Scid on the go
Best (Android) 'on the go' analyzing tool for serious players!! Keep your great work! Two additional features I'm dreaming about: - R/W support (Scir OR PGN) - R/O support for native ChessBase format (MegaBase on the go)...

Loved it! I have downloaded several issues from twic downloads. Is there a way I can integrate them into one? I'm tired of opening them one by one. Plz help. Love this app so much.

Hopeless. Why would anyone go through the trouble of developing and app and provide zero instructions on how to use it? Sometimes I am befuddled by human nature.
