PGN viewer and editor, allows setting, recording and viewing chess games, openings, etudes, etc. with analysis and comments.
Does not include chess engine, so it does not play chess.
A short manual can be found at http://solutionsinhand.com/android/ChessPad.html
Notes:
1. To download games use a file manager like Astro. ChessPad can work with zipped pgn files as well as with unzipped.
2. Opening a large pgn file can be slow. E.g. 3MB (9MB unzipped) http://www.pgnmentor.com/openings/GiuocoPiano.zip file takes about a minute to load.
Note that only one pgn file can be loaded/edited at a time.

    Chess PGN Master Pro is wayyyyy better. I'm a fan of chesspad on PC, but the droid app is not user friendly at all...so I removed shortly after download.

    When moving a rook that is on the same rank, the notation is not noted to which rook was moved. When loading the game an error occurs with the move number and will not load the entire game. A very nice tool for me until this happened. Hope it gets resolv

    Good app performing what she is intended to do. needs some work in the GUI though.
