There is a good range of free chess software available to download on the Android Market. As you might expect, the majority of this software does not merit downloading often because the software has limited functionality or is buggy. The purpose of this article is to identify chess apps which are definitely worth investigating. The scope of this article is not limited to standard chess clients. We also have included software which lets you play chess variants, as well as covering the finest chess utilities. All of the software is available to download at no charge, and some of the apps are released under open source licenses.
