The main points are:
- You can change all views by swiping left or right.
- Two designs: maximum board size or large icon (with motor).
- Menu top left for additional functions.
- Easy to share positions on What`s App, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook etc.
The game element is now divided into two parts: at the bottom, the board with the arrow keys near the thumb for one-handed operation. At the top are LiveBook, Engine, Notation, and Game List views. You can change the views above either by swiping up or by clicking the blue arrows on the left or right edge.
Press each pixel of the panel: the “big board” layout.
Here the board has the maximum possible size at the expense of encoding.
If you want to focus on blogging in the annotated games, go to the Big Blogging format via the menu in the top right. It looks like this:
The “Hamburger” menu in the top left is not called because the blade originated in Hamburg, but because the three horizontal bars represent the stripping of a bullet in a bun.
Show “Big Blogging”, with the engine always seen.
Scrolling the icon left or right will go to other views:
Swipe right once: Engine with rating profile, threats, hint mode, visual rating, severity, and multivariate calculation.
The well-known party mode from Fritz18 (click on the lifebelt) is great: in a straightforward game, don’t look at the engine variant like a chess zombie, but let the tips tempt you to do your own calculations. Clicking on the evaluation profile will take you to the position corresponding to the train in question.
Twice on the right: Find the theory in the LiveBook.
Swipe left once: list of games.
You can download games with one click from the game list. Switching between games is also possible by swiping left / right on the panel, which is especially useful when broadcasting live.
It is well known that the mobile phone is used for social communication. So one can easily divide the positions in the game view. Send a cute combination to a chess friend via What`s App. Or tweet an interesting site from a live broadcast. From the hamburger menu, call Share -> Share board function. Depending on the browser, you will either come straight to a selection of different destinations like Messenger, Twitter, email, etc. Or the site image is downloaded first, which you then share as an image.
Chin stand with a few clicks.
By the way, if you’re watching the live stream on your mobile here or at http://live.chessbase.com, there are more shows available in the layout menu. In extreme cases, you can see eight small panels at the same time on your mobile phone, for example. Or easily choose between the ongoing tournaments:
At live.chessbase.com, slide the icon to the left twice: to select all the running tournaments.
We hope you enjoy reading chess news or checking out live games on the go!
