Lantern Chess on Android is a client for playing, observing, and chatting on the Internet Chess Club, ICC is a paid chess server and membership should be purchased or already had before using Lantern.

ICC requires membership to the Internet Chess Club to use this interface(though a user can login as a guest and ask a question to help by typing tell 1 my question).

Tips for using it the first time

There is a menu on every tab. Reconnect is on the Con menu.

If the user gets a tell, hit the f9 button(near typing area on Con tab) to respond.

On the first log-in the user has to type his name and pass in the name and pass fields. The user can save his name and pass in the con menu for next reconnect and these fields will load

Font size can be changed in the con menu. On list view, use the menu to change between lists or view Seek Graph.

If the user moves a channel out of con to chan1 or chan2 tabs then they won't have to type tell (channel number).

There is sound on the board tab menu for users of Ice Cream Sandwich(4.0) or higher of Android. Because of problems with sound for earlier versions of Android, sound will not show on menu for Gingerbread or Honeycomb. If you don't want sound disable it on board tab's menu and it will save the setting.

Whats new

    2.1.3a Now has on-screen menu access on every tab for those without physical menu buttons

Works well for what I need it to do. The best way to check messages, chat, and observe games on the go. I appreciate having quick and easy access to the console. The one thing I don't like is that your app usurps the sound settings on my phone: if I put my phone on vibrate or mute, I still hear move sounds unless I actually do set bell 0.

Great for chat, chess and more! As a serial chatter - And ICC (H)elper - I dislike other ICC apps. Lantern does it all. Added functionality with easy chat interface, custom channel tabs and great layout. With the arrival of seek graph, and improvements to the board, it's even better still! (OMG EYES!) Once I figured out how to move pieces, it's a breeze to use. Mike has been great, fixing all the bugs I found. <3 Lantern... your beacon of light when far from home. - SophieDaET @ ICC

Great app and support This works great on my tablet and phone. Super developer response to questions. Full featured, can do anything the Windows clients can (at least everything I've tried).

Best app for ICC on Android
