Checkers Tutor 2.1

I just posted Checkers Tutor 2.1 for Android on the Android market. It has a lot of improvements over the previous version:

  • Nicer graphics (see previous post)and new nicer launcher icon
  • A new pushover level where you should be able to win even when moving at random
  • A smoother transition of playing strength when moving up from beginner levels to depth-controlled levels to timed levels. This is done by disabling parts of the evaluation on the lower depth-controlled levels
  • The entire last game is restored now on startup, not only the last position
  • Two small bugs fixed
  • Behind the scenes, a lot of the code was cleaned up

To me, it looks as if it should be the best/nicest checkers app for the Android platform, but obviously I'm rather biased! Now all I need is some customers and some good ratings :-)

I already have an android phone where I installed the free Version. I will get a Google nexus S in April and I think I'll buy your program :-)

...and don't forget to give it a 5-star-rating :-)

One Swiss franc --- plus who knows what in exchange fees. Of course now that I bought it I will have to write an article or review of it :)

Although my fat fingers have some trouble accurately moving the pieces, this is surely the best Android checker app by a long, long margin.

Aloha,

Bob Newell

wanted to know the link?

Martin Fierz said...

Hi Bob,

thanks for your money :-) - and I hope you are enjoying Hawaii!
I'm sorry about the move input being clumsy, but it's tough with an 8x8 board and those small screens.... I could make a 6x6 checkers :-)

In any case, I certainly hope you will review it at some point on your wonderful website!

best regards
Martin

I have just put this on my MID. You've done a great job, Martin! The only way to seriously improve it would be to add a board set-up option to use it to solve problems or work through strategy. Easily the best $0.99 I have ever spent. Thumbs up!

Hi Martin
I just bought your checkers tutor. It is indeed extremly powerful. Make it a little bit more expensive and implement a save function in the next upcoming version. Regards Volker
P.S. 5 stars are not enough!!!!
