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)...

Great to look at games Wish it would have better game list navigation. Haven't explored if there are options to restrict from the game list - couldn't find the control (rating or structure). Could restrict the games. However the one thing on my wishlist is the ability to remember previous filter (at-least last used one) as it saves having to enter it repeatedly (for my use case).

Amazing Real, full database features that fit in the palm of your hand. Great interface for lots of UCI engines for analysis.
