Chess for Galaxy gt-i5500 android phone

Although I thought the day would never come, I finally succumbed to temptation and bought a Galaxy Android smartphone.

I haven't been disappointed - there are many free apps to indulge in on the android market website. My favourite chess apps so far are iChess for tactics training and Chess Free for playing chess against the computer.

When I'm on the train, I find that solving the tactics puzzles on the phone is so much easier and less cumbersome than bringing in a large tactics volume, pen and paper! Also the app keeps a record of your score giving you some indication of how tactically adept you are.

Here are some other android chess apps available for download in the google marketplace most of which are free:


Chess Grandmaster

Rival Chess

Chess Pad

Chess ELO



Chess Clock for Android

Chess genius Lite
