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

Can you explain exactly what the fraud is? // Christophe The fraud is that a buyer could get exactly the same product for free, so the fact to hide that what I am selling is an exact copy of another product available for free it is a fraud IMHO. /* Marco */ If they mention that it's Stockfish, is i...

Re: Chess Tiger for iPod

Hi, my Chess Tiger program disappeared from my iPod, so I went back to iTunes to re-download it and it is not showing up in my APPS. I then did a search at the iTunes store for "Chess Tiger" and it does not appear to be for sale. Can someone tell me what the heck is going on with my missing CT app?...

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

These "authors" are violating GPL IMO as I can't find sources anywhere. Technically I am not sure there is a GPL violation here, because the source code doesn't seem to have been modified at all, which means that the source code is available. On the other hand, these apps clearly do violate Apple's...

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

Human nature once again at it's worst. Some of them will no doubt take full credit for the chess engine. IMHO they couldn't care less of taking credit....it is just money that they are interested in. It is just a small fraud to get easy and cheap (and dirty) money out of casual buyers. ....Apple sh...

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

After contacting Deep Fish Chess yesterday they assured me that they would remove my Modern piece set. Looking on the apps store now, Deep Fish is still there but the screenshot which had shown my pieces has been removed, although it may still exist in the program. If these lads, Andrew and John ha...
