Revisiting checkers programming, I just released version 2.5 of Checkers for Android, both at the Google Play and as direct download . New features include: simple animation of captured pieces added a slight delay in single-move response added transposition table to engine more time controls The new animation and delay will hopefully make it more clear what move was just played. The transposition table should improve the engine strength a bit. UPDATE: version 2.5.1 improves the animation as shrinking pieces (some users thought the older fading pieces were "drag delay"!), adds more endgame knowledge, and shows kings more clearly.
