Hi leavenfish. I tried 'chess book study' app on my tablet. It's basically a PDF reader with a 'board' added at the bottom of the page. Unfortunately though, it's just a static board- its doesn't automatically play what's being said in the text. It's still you who will manually set the position up if if, say, the text starts in the mid game. As my tablet's display is just 7 inch, studying with this app is irritating at best. I think reading with PDF and using an actual board would be better alternative for us. PS... you will not be able to install android apps to windows. Anyway don't bother with the app, actual board is way better when studying with PDFs.
I have the everyman chess reader on my tab. Like what other's have said, it's good as it links you up to purchase their eBook automatically. The only thing that's holding me off from purchasing their book is their price- still pricey and defeats the purpose of me embracing an reader.
try this one. Load your pgn, then open with this android app
Which pdf viewer for tablets (specifically Android) will allow me to read the pdf like a book?
Hey gundamv; you asked me a question about renewals on pay-pal. Did you get my reply?? I'm just trying to save you some aggravation.
Ereader? Just get a book, kid.
I believe tablets come preinstalled with PDF readers and the experience is the same for all PDF apps. I'm just beginning to learn that eBook is different from PDF. EBook reader app will let you read stuff like a book.
Why not install the Chessbase reader on a computer, which is free, and buy .cbh e-books instead?
It can read PGN files too.
Apart from Everyman Chess, which publishers sell ebooks in cbh format?
E+ app with OSx (i.e. iPads, iPhones, etc..)
Clean, Crisp, diagram,... You can with an iPad read the books, and see the board update as you go through the books.
Unfortunately, not a lot of choice, books to choose from.
I am not sure if it is available for Android.
Hope this helps.
I like Adobe reader to read a chess book and win board to make moves.
Guess I've been looking at only Everyman Books
Looks to me all of the Chess Informants are too, but this stuff is high level.
Thanks, that's what I thought.
Hey, If you get an Android tablet, you can download an app made specifically for reading chess books:https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pereira.booknboard
I personally prefer having a board to set up so that I can follow the author. The app has a board built in. I'm currently reading Chess Strategy by Lasker.
