An optional “move coach” highlights valid usermoves during input and last played engine move. Full gamenavigation buttons enable users to correct mistakes or analyzegames. Games import and export as FEN/PGN to and from the clipboardor via sharing, load and save as file, or are set up through aposition editor. A draw by stalemate, insufficientmaterial, the fifty move rule, or threefoldrepetition is recognized. The engine plays at various levels(including random, against itself in auto-play, or free-play, wherethe game can be used as a “magnetic chessboard”).
