More on Komodo 8

Because Komodo 8, the world's #1 engine, is distributed as an Android Chessbase compatible engine, it is immediately available for import in Chess for Android on your phone, tablet, or smart-watch, and in Chess for Glass on your Glass device. Many thanks to Mark, Larry, and Jeremy for making this amazing engine available. I wish I could have shared my excitement over this with Don too.

Komodo 8 for Android

The extremely strong Komodo 8 chess engine is now available for Android (see the playstore link and the developers website).  It runs directly in Chess for Android and potentially even in Chess for Glass (by sideloading the APK). How exciting to see this powerful engine available on my favorite platform!

Chess for Glass

Besides Chess for Android, I have been working on another project, which has been officially released today!

Chess for Glass
Chess for Glass is Glassware that runs directly on Glass. You can enter moves by simply saying the moves, or by using the touch pad. Other features include a choice in board color, spoken move announcements, and the ability to import any third party chess engine to replace the friendly built-in Java engine. Chess for Glass recognizes all Android Chessbase compatible engines that are installed on the same Glass device, and supports both the popular UCI and XBoard/WinBoard protocols.
