Home * Engines * DroidFish

a standalone UCI compliant chess application for Android platforms by Peter Österlund. It incorporates the GUI and opening book code derived from CuckooChess by Peter Österlund, the CuckooChess Java chess engine, and the Stockfish chess engine by Tord Romstad, Marco Costalba and Joona Kiiski. The port of Stockfish didn't involve changing the Stockfish source code, but finding a compatible STL implementation for Android, and compiling the source code with the correct combination of compiler flags as a library which is accessed using JNI [1] . Further, since version 1.4, DroidChess supports Gaviota Tablebases and includes the probing code by Miguel A. Ballicora [2], and since version 1.55, Syzygy Bases [3].
