Re: Ipod Touch Chess program help

Hi, I just got a new Ipod Touch 4g. I purchased Fritz for Ipod but I now regret this decision. Fritz's elo levels are way off. Its lower levels play much much stronger than it should be and where is the advertised 100000 game database?? I wrote to apple for a refund but it doesn't seem like it's co...

Re: iOS v. Android v. Windows - Tablet and Celly Marketshare

Hi, as you are aware endusers mostly use Windows for their PC. We must presume that one of the OS will win the tablet and cell phone market, but which one? Apple iOS is certainly winning right now. Android is getting stronger and can be used on a variety of companies hardware and the next version o...

Re: Stockfish clones in the AppStore: it's becoming a plague

Here, for instance: http://www.macgasm.net/2011/04/19/game-charts-apples-banhammer-face/ If you want to cheat the AppStore, you'll have to be very smart. Also, since iOS 4.3, it is forbidden (and impossible) for someone who got a free voucher for an App to review it in the AppStore. 1. There is not...

Re: Stockfish clones in the AppStore: it's becoming a plague

Hi Christophe, I just took a look at those two programs again, and yes, at first glimpse the playing interfaces are quite similar. But not at second glimpse: all the menus are different, they're not chained the same way, etc... I didn't compare the engines though. If he got kicked out of the AppSto...

Re: Stockfish clones in the AppStore: it's becoming a plague

You should be happy that Apple relaxed their own rule and let Stockfish be published. These are THEIR rules. They are quite free to enforce them or not because they are not legally bound to enforce them. In my experience, they start enforcing them when a clear abuse is noticed. So I guess Stockfish...

Re: Stockfish clones in the AppStore: it's becoming a plague

Distributing an application in source is clearly a violation of the App Store rules How ridiculous. A company imposing such rules should be avoided like the plague. I am sure that Tord would never consciously have agreed to any terms that would mean giving up his copyright of Stockfish to the App. ...

Re: Stockfish clones in the AppStore: it's becoming a plague

Distributing an application in source is clearly a violation of the App Store rules How ridiculous. A company imposing such rules should be avoided like the plague. This very rule is the one that would prevent people to take an open source program (GPL or not) and make money from it when the author...

Re: Stockfish clones in the AppStore: it's becoming a plague

The most straight forward way to dis courage this practice is for Tord or anyone else that is concerned to write small reviews about these apps and mention that it is virtually identical to the free StockFish app.Then these developers will be stuck with no revenue and still have to pay the annual r...
