Re: Daily iPhone chess programs releases

Import from clipboard has been there since the very first release. It has been improved in this version to accept more abuse from malformed PGN input and to output a more helpful message when the input is really too badly malformed. The app warns you that sometimes more lines than asked can show up....

Re: hiarcs for ipad is there

I don't understand why you are trying to convince us that $0.99 would be the optimal price for any app. You seem to be very passionate about it. What is your motivation? I know first hand that it $0.99 is not the optimal price for a chess app. For example the top selling chess app is definitely not...

Re: hiarcs for ipad is there

So what do you think of Angry Bird? The world's top paid iPhone game selling $1? I think that you demonstrate nothing by mentionning a single example. It's like saying that a grain of salt is worth $0.001 and you have sold billion of them, so you have clearly demonstrated that $0.001 is the right p...

Re: hiarcs for ipad is there

I think you are missing the point: the App Store is an ecosystem per se. Any statement I made was in the strict limits of this ecosystem, the only relevant one. How chess programs are sold on desktop computers or video game systems has just no relevance to the App Store. The App Store has a model b...

Re: Chess Tiger Ipad - How to load a new PGN file

Got my Ipad 2 today, and installed Chess Tiger... a great engine for sparring. My question is how would I make Chess Tiger to read new PGN files which are not the default ones installed by the app? There is no option to do a search or a file manager to select a path to upload a new PGN file. There ...

Re: Rybka ban thoughts

I find it strange that your post doesn't contain the word "code" even once. I do want to make it clear that I do not absolve Vas completely. However, I think what has been done to him is disgraceful. What is disgraceful is the fact that you totally skip over the copy-and-paste of CODE. Rajlich has ...

Re: Rybka affair as seen by a simple user and customer

...which is me, absolutely ignorant in matters of computing science. I just use and purchase programs when they are commercial, I download them gladly when they are free.
