I have several apps on my iPad that will analyze the current position as I move through a game, but I can't seem to find any that will do an analysis of a complete game, ala the sort of analysis I used to do with Fritz when I still had a working PC. I don't need Grand Master level preparation insights (as in, I'm not trying to replicate the depth that Fritz could look at), just looking for something that will point out blunders and mistakes etc.

    SmallFish will add this feature (blunder check) in the next release (when the next Stockfish version is ready). Other than that, I'm not aware of any app that can do that.

  • Thanks for replying -- I have SmallFish, so I'm looking forward to that. Seems oddly lacking on the iPad -- it was easy to find an app that did this on my Android phone (Analyze This combined with Android Komodo), but I'd much rather use the larger screen of my iPad. Jun 29 '16 at 23:38
  • It's a matter of motivation and nobody has stepped in to do it. Analyze This is a commercial app, while SmallFish is free.

    The engine only gives evaluation scores, it's not a good idea just dump those scores out to you. The analysis needs to tell the user when a blunder happens and this can happen if we have a definition of a blunder. Is losing 0.5 score a blunder? What about 1.5?

    Yep, understood, more complicated than I assumed. Jun 30 '16 at 10:58

Smallfish as mentioned is good, the website lichess.org has made an app, you can downnload it and make an account. It needs internet connection for the database but not for the complete game analysis


Analyze this is a chess tool for iPhone/iPad which is a good app and you can include that as well.

  • Do you happen to have a link to it?

  • I didn't downvote, but your original answer (without the link) was really substandard; right now, it looks very similar to a typical spam post.
