Chess for Android 2.5.5

Version 2.5.5 of Chess for Android introduces the following new features.
  • Ability to save games to SD card. Games are appended in PGN format to file /sdcard/games.pgn on the SD card, so that users can examine these later, for example, in a chess application on the desktop.
  • Ability to define common UCI engine options in a pop-up window:
    • hash table size
    • ELO strength restriction 
    • endgame tablebases formats (Nalimov, Gaviota, or Scorpio) and cache size
    The options are populated with the engine's defaults.
