I have Shredder and Stockfish on my iPad, both of which can give me an evaluation of the next best move. I'd like to look at games and have an analysis of the moves, find out which it says are basically favorable or weak. Can either of these applications do that (maybe I just don't know how to use them), or if not, what programs can?
That is a great question. I would like to hear
an answer to about what chess programs will
analyze your moves. It is really tough to figure out
why some moves especially in openings are bad.
Sorry I cannot answer, Hopefully someone could comment
about the many software chess programs that may be able
to do this.
In positions where the evaluation only shows very small evaluation numbers(such as +0.34), I personally cannot see what that evaluation means. Playing through to the end of the given line doesn't help me either. It's only when the evaluation numbers are over 1.0, or 2.0 where I can see my advantage or disadvantage.
I guess +.34 is a tempo. and 1 is a pawn advantage. 0.34+ 0.34+0.34 =1 pawn3 tempo =1 pawn.
the Fritz GUI has the option "explain all moves" and a large box comes up that actually gives a short explanation of each move. I dont know if you would have that
