Komodo for Android

Don Dailey and Larry Kaufman released their chess engine Komodo 1.3 for Android, kindly compiled by Jim Ablett and made available at his excellent Jim Ablett's Chess Projects Website (where you can find many more engines). Below you see some screenshots importing the UCI engine into Chess for Android.


The engine is strong. The following cross-table shows the results of a few one-second-per-move matches with other engines on a Nexus S (1GHz Hummingbird) with 32MB hash and Nalimov/Gaviota/Scorpio/Robbobases endgame tablebases on SD card.
