Being able to use a DGT Board

fewlio

in their favor, they had one recent development which was nice to see.  A cheaper version of their board for poorer nations and budget conscious customers everywhere.  Still costs plenty but it is definitely cheaper!

DGT wrote me that they are working on support for both chess.com and lichess.org, which is great news. Also they said that there is a new Android app that connects to DGT. I cannot test this however, since I don't have any Android device.

What's the name of the android app?

Eric-Cesar

This is what the DGT CEO told me: "Chess for Android van Aart Bik".

I assume that Aart Bik is the developer.  See his website.

Yes, the app "Chess for Android fully supports DGT!

I test ChessGuard (only one time it stopped at 20moves) and it is real amazing. 

I hope that DGT directly supports the online chess player and Acid Ape Chess will back to support the USB eboard. 

Thank for the copy of chessguard!!!

Did it display the moves on your DGT clock?

McFacciaron

Yes It did but not every move. And It speaks too.

Hmmm... Funny. It didn't, with mine. It received moves on my chessboard just fine, but nothing was shown on the clock. I might try with the old DGT+ and see if that works

The Android App is Acid Ape Chess only use with Bluetooth DGT board.  But for training use Lucas Chess with DGT usb and DGT bluetooth

For training I have plenty of options, what we would like is an app to play chess on chess websites against human opponents with our USB chessboard...

I think there is no app for usb board, only websites and software like Fritz, Babachess(fics) and Lucas chess.

Hi everyone, there's something wrong I'm doing here with my USB board (by the way, thanks fewlio for your help!). As soon as I make a move, it doesn't happen anything and the cursor goes as marked on the screen. Maybe there's no pupport for USB model? 

McFacciaron

I have the same problem...
