Chess.com app for android phones

KenStanton

Hello!  I´ve recently uppgraded my android mobile phone and lost the chess.com application. But, when trying to download it again from the market, I cannot find it anymore. I´ve searched for "chess" and "chess.com" but all I see see is other chess applications. What´s happened? The chess.com application was great and I miss it very much.

You can get the QR code from here: http://www.androlib.com/android.application.com-chess-wtiF.aspx .

If that doesn't work, or you don't know how to use them, try searching for "Play Chess & Learn". The app is still there :-)

I tried searching for "Play Chess & Learn" with no luck, that´s very strange. About the QR code,  I haven´t been using them before but it seems fairly simple. I´ll try it out. thanks!

Can't find the app either. I have a HTC Desire and am located in Norway. For me that means that pay-apps are unavailable but that shouldn't affect the chess.com app...?

I have the HTC Desire on 2.1 and I cannot locate chess.com either.  Tried through androidpit and the link said it was missing!!  I saw the app downloaded on a T-Mobile G1 3 days earlier.

I tried to locate the app with the QR code and a barcode scanner and had no luck at first, it showed up again after a couple of days when I tried the search result I got in the first place.My phone is a Samsung galaxy spica 2.1.

The same thing have happened with other apps as well so I guess it has to do with the app market or the phone rather than chess.com.

Good luck finding the app again!

What are you searching for in the market? Try "chesscom", and see if that works.

I also tried with no luck. "chesscom", "com.chess", "chess.com", "play chess", "play chess learn"... and finallly to scan the list for some time didn't help. Also the barcode leads to a non-existent address. So I suppose the app is not available in Europe's market...

I'd like to use the link posted but I still don't know how to install apps from the pc instead than from the market.

Alzhaid

In case there are other Android newbies around, I can tell it will work doing this:

- download the app from the link posted above by cemc.

- rename the file chesscomandroid.apk.zip to chesscomandroid.apk

- copy the file to the SD card at the mobile.

- use a file manager (I just installed one from the Android Market) to go to where you copied the chesscomandroid.apk file, click it and it will install it.

Now I finally have the app that also was reason for buying this phone :D

Can't install the App on my Acer E400(Android 2.1), following Alzhaid's inrtructions, and the instalation doesn't start... I also can't find the app on market. Where can I find the working app???

Are there any other android-clients for chess.com?

What version of Android do you have? It may be possible your phone doesn't support the current version.
