Review: The iPod Observer - 11 Nov, 2008

The iPod Observer reviewed Chess Pro and rated it as 'Great' (4 iPods) .

Review Summary: In this "First Look" review of version 1.1, I found Chess Pro to be an error free and fun Chess game to play. There are several levels, playing modes and themes to choose from. The developer has been very approachable in e-mails, and I sense he's working hard to keep this program free of the criticisms that have plagued others. I believe the "Hard" level will keep 99 percent of the casual wood pushers continuously challenged, and the price is very modest.

Gnu GPL allows for the selling of products using "copyleft'ed" code

For the guy complaining about 99Games stealing the Sjeng engine, GPL specifically allows for commercial redistribution as long as the source code is available. the iTunes store does not have a mechanism by which the source code could be packaged in a useable form with the executable file. See below for 99Games distribution solution.

From Wikipedia: "The terms and conditions of the GPL are available to anybody receiving a copy of the work that has a GPL applied to it ("the licensee"). Any licensee who adheres to the terms and conditions is given permission to modify the work, as well as to copy and redistribute the work or any derivative version. The licensee is allowed to charge a fee for this service, or do this free of charge. This latter point distinguishes the GPL from software licenses that prohibit commercial redistribution. The FSF argues that free software should not place restrictions on commercial use, and the GPL explicitly states that GPL works may be sold at any price."

And from the 99cent website:
"You are making use of GNU Chess. Can I get the source code?

Sure. We have modified the Sjeng source code and as per the GNU GPLv2 terms we will be providing the entire source code on demand, free of charge. Please email to our support team. There is ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY for the modified source code.

We thought of packaging the entire source code with the Binary uploaded to App Store. If we do this, there is no way that a user can extract the source code from the application downloaded on the iPhone/iPod touch. So we have given the above provision."

Standard disclaimers about my lack of involvement with 99Games apply

Nice app needs features

Nice app but needs tuning
1. Need redo feature
You can undo to review your moves but you're then stuck - no way to redo and return to play at that position
2. Need way to name saved games
3. Very irritating - double 'splash' credit screens at start mean EVERY time you reenter game you have to wait 4-5 seconds!
4. Found this the most accurate in terms of touch of all the chess games

3/5 stars
