SmallFish Chess for Stockfish for iPhone & iPad

By  | 

Chess is a fun and challenging game. You can always beat your friends and brag about your skills. But if you want to become a master, you need to practice hard. Practicing your skills against top chess engines could certainly help your cause. In the past few years, we have covered plenty of awesome chess engines for iOS here. SmallFish Chess for Stockfish happens to be one of the strongest chess engines we have tested. You see, this app is based on Stockfish 5, which happens to be the most powerful chess engine in the world.

Stockfish has been available on the App Store for quite some time. SmallFish Chess for Stockfish looks much more elegant but when at its strongest level, it will beat you up in chess like there is no tomorrow. Fear not as you can weaken Stockfish to play at your level. You can also analyze games, go through annotated games, and change the settings quite conveniently. We found the interface to be quite easy on the eye and the animations smooth.

In our tests, Stockfish destroyed both Hiarcs and Shredder (videos will be up on our YouTube channel). Best of all, the app is available for free. Thanks to Smallfish, you can put Stockfish to better use and learn a thing or two from it in the process.
