Chess for All 2.0

ChessForAll 2.0 is a powerful update. The user interface has been completely redesigned, the chess engine is now intergrated into the app, the PGN processing improved...

The apps "Stockfish Chess" and "Chess Engines" are no longer needed and can be uninstalled.

I therefore recommend to read the user manual at first.

Should you nevertheless get problems, please report.

Have fun
