New Game and Undo

I just posted version 2.1.1 of Chess, Checkers, and Reversi for Android at the Android Market that allows starting a new game or undoing the last played human move while the computer is thinking. In the older versions, this could only happen during the human player's turn. The latest releases remove that unnecessary restriction.

As before, keep in mind that each undo takes back only one half-move (ply). This means that each undo effectively switches the side-to-move. Either use "Switch Side" or make your move on the board to start the engine again.
