Chess for Androidv 4.1.5

I just released version 4.1.5 of Chess for Android as direct download and at Google Play with enhancements for, what I like to call, the chess ecosystem on Android. First, as explained in my prior blog posting, Chess for Android now understands a few more direct sharing requests from other applications so that, for example, a game can be shared directly from Gerhard Kalab's Chess PGN viewer into Chess for Android, without going through tedious copy-and-paste operations. Conversely, Chess for Android now supports the "Share Game" feature as well to do the opposite operation.

As illustrated below (long-press notation window to open the extended menu), exporting a game from Chess for Android to the Chess PGN Viewer now only takes a few simple clicks!
