As you know, lichess is built and run by a vibrant community of chess lovers. Some are coding the site itself, some are catching cheaters, some keep the servers up and scaling; and these two guys, veloce and freefal, are doing wonders with the mobile app.
So what's new since the previous mobile app review?
You have been requesting that for a while, and I didn't think it was possible.
Well, the amazing mobile app developers proved me wrong. The always-popular lichess arena tournaments are now playable on the mobile app! Leaderboards, win streaks, berserks: it's all there, same as or even better than the website.
Native Stockfish 7
Use it as an offline opponent (get ready for a tough challenge!) and to analyse your games. Stockfish provides a position evaluation in centipawns, and best move recommendations. Props to srenault for the help with this feature!
Set up any position and play it with Stockfish or a friend, online or offline.
Note that all variants are now playable offline.
The mobile app is catching up on the website to provide a complete and powerful chess experience.
