Analyze This - Tips and Tricks (new in v3.0)

Many features have been added in v3.0. Here are some Tips and tricks.

NOTE : When in doubt, press the Menu key (indicated by 3 vertical dots on the Top right/left of the device. On some devices, the Menu can be accessed with a physical button)!

Delete game from PGN file

Added a game to your PGN file by mistake and wish to delete it? Touch and Hold the game and you will see the Delete icon on the top right. Press the icon to delete the game. (Note : the game will be permanently deleted. Always create a backup of your important PGN files!)

Play against Mobile / Engine shootout (PRO Only)

The one important thing that Analyze This lacked was the ability for the engines to play against you or against other engine. Not anymore! Say you are practicing Endgames or just want to understand why the GM resigned in a given position; you can test your skills against the machine!
Tap the Engine name (hyperlink) and choose 'Play this side' and the engine will automatically make moves for that side, while you play the other. If you choose 'Play this side' again, then the engine will make moves for both sides and finish the game. This way, you could use any combination of engines!! (Psst: I tried to play the Shak vs Svidler Candidates game where Svidler resigned after the awesome Rg5. I played with the White pieces, but I still could only draw against the Engine!! Envy those Super GMs. Try it!)

Engine output to Notation


You can copy the engine output to the notation! There are two ways to do this:
* Clip main-line - Tap the engine name to see the option. This will copy the engine's main line to the notation
* Touch and hold the engine line - Alternately, you can touch and hold any of the variation in the engine window and that variation will be copied to the notation.

Annotation editor

Analyze This now has the option to annotate your games. You can use the Annotation Editor to annotate multiple moves in one sitting! Just tap on the move that you wish to annotate and choose the appropriate symbols. Add a comment if you like and press 'Apply Comment'.

Quick Annotation Palette

What if you only wish to quickly add some symbols to the game without having to load the complete Annotation Editor!? Simply double tap on any empty square on the board and you will see the above Annotate Palette. Then choose any symbol and it will be added to the move. Note the palette will auto close in 5s.

Promote variation

Touch and hold the move in the Notation window to see the option to "Promote variation". This will make the sub-variation into the main line.

Auto-replay game (PRO Only)

A good way to go through master games is to play through them quickly, as many times as possible and as many games as possible. Analyze This now allows you to do that. Just press the green button and the game will auto-replay every few seconds. Sit back and enjoy the game!

Variation chooser

When you are reading a annotated game, its not always easy to find the sub variation and jump to it. Now, Analyze This will pop up the available variations and you can tap any of the move to jump to that variation. Bonus Tip : At the end of the sub-variation, you can continue to hit the right arrow and you will automatically jump back to the main-line!

Player lookup via Wikipedia


Note the hyperlinks on the Play names in the first picture. You can lookup the Player profiles on Wikipedia. Handy if you are browsing through some international games and wish to lookup on some favorite players or somebody unknown.

Swipe to change games

When you load a game from the games browser, you can swipe from right-to-left on the board to load the next game. Similarly, swipe left-to-right to load the previous game. (Note : Every time you launch the app, the app may show you the Games list the first time. Then subsequently, swiping will load the game)

Arrows and Highlights

Sharing Board as image with Analyze This just got better! You can now highlight squares or draw arrows. Simply touch any square to highlight it. Swipe your finger across to draw the arrow! (Thx Carlos). Coordinates are automatically added to the image, so that your readers are not left wondering which side moves up or down!

Quick access to recent PGN files

Like me, if you access multiple PGN files from different folders (Download, Dropbox folder etc), then Analyze This v3.0 has a handy little feature. It shows your last accessed PGN files at the top (in light gray) irrespective of which folder you are current in. Simply tap the file to load it!

Different ways to Paste in Analyze This

Analyze This has a single "Paste" option, but it is smart enough to know what you are actually pasting!
So you can paste a complete PGN or only the FEN string or only the moves, and Analyze This accepts them all!

Say you have received a PGN in your email or have it on a website. 
You can paste the complete PGN.
Ex:
[Event "New Jersey State Open Champion"]
[Site "?"]
[Date "1957.??.??"]
[Round "7"]
[White "Fischer, R."]
[Black "Sherwin, J."]
[Result "1-0"]
[ECO "B30"]
[WhiteElo ""]
[BlackElo ""]
[PlyCount "65"]
[EventDate "1957.??.??"]

1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 e6 3. d3 Nc6 4. g3 Nf6 5. Bg2 Be7 6. O-O O-O 7. Nbd2 Rb8 8. Re1
d6 9. c3 b6 10. d4 Qc7 11. e5 Nd5 12. exd6 Bxd6 13. Ne4 c4 14. Nxd6 Qxd6 15.
Ng5 Nce7 16. Qc2 Ng6 17. h4 Nf6 18. Nxh7 Nxh7 19. h5 Nh4 20. Bf4 Qd8 21. gxh4
Rb7 22. h6 Qxh4 23. hxg7 Kxg7 24. Re4 Qh5 25. Re3 f5 26. Rh3 Qe8 27. Be5+ Nf6
28. Qd2 Kf7 29. Qg5 Qe7 30. Bxf6 Qxf6 31. Rh7+ Ke8 32. Qxf6 Rxh7 33. Bc6+ 1-0

Or you can paste only the FEN string (frequently available in diagrams on the ChessCafe website). Ex:
 [FEN "8/4pkPp/7B/3K4/8/8/8/8 w - - 0 1"] 
or
"8/4pkPp/7B/3K4/8/8/8/8 w - - 0 1"

or you can paste only the moves from a game (from starting position)

1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 e6 3. d3 Nc6 4. g3 Nf6 5. Bg2

Now isn't that one smart app!?

=======================================

//The following features were already part of v2.0.x

PGN delete and share

Now delete or share the PGN file with your coach right from within the app!
In the File Browser (via Open PGN), touch and hold the pgn file that you are interested to delete or share. You should see options to the top right as shown below.
Then you can Delete the file or Share it via Email, Dropbox, Google docs etc

Create new PGN


While saving a game, you are asked to Choose a File. You can even create a new PGN from within the app!
Press the physical menu key and choose "Create New PGN". If your device does not come with physical menu key, then its even easier. You can simply choose the "Create New PGN" option from the drop down located at the top right of your screen (indicated with 3 vertical dots)


Long press notation/moves for more options


You can select a move from the move/notation window. Then touch and hold it and a popup should appear with more options.
"Delete this move" - Delete the currently selected move including itself. This can be even used to delete a complete variation by selecting the first move from the variation and then choosing "Delete this move"


Swipe to turn board


Wish to turn/flip the board? Now thats easy. Simply swipe your finger down the board as shown below! Turning the board was never so easy!


Tap engine analysis


Now you don't have to manually enter moves. If you like the engine's suggestions, then Tap on the engine move in the list and it will be played on the board!
For ex. in the image below, once you tap the variation, the first move Ra3 will be played on the board.
You can continue to tap to make subsequent moves

Tilt to move

Give your fingers some rest. Simply tilt your device left/right to take back or move forward through the notation! I use this feature, when I am relaxing on the couch and wish to play through some recent master games. What best is that I can even use it while moving around and move back/forth through the moves with a single hand!
Note: Tilt = move the left/right vertical edge of your device such that one edge of the device is up while other edge is down.

  15. I needed to discuss the much-examined "mystery of chess". Things being what they are, how would we comprehend this apparently straightforward recreational and focused game, played on a square checkered chessboard with 64 squares organized in an eight-by-eight square between two players?chess sets

  18. LOVE SPELLS THAT WORKS
    I am sharing this testimony to partners suffering in their relationships because there is an enduring solution.
    My husband left me and our 2 kids for another woman for 3 years. I tried to be strong just for my kids but I could not control the pains that torment my heart. I was hurt and confused. I needed a help, so i did a research on the internet and came across a site where I saw that Dr. omohan a spell caster, can help get lovers back. I contacted him and he did a special prayer and spells for me. To my surprises, after some days, my husband came back home. That was how we reunited again and there was a lot of love, joy and peace in the family.

  22. Hi everyone!
    My Ex and I broke up 1 year and 2 months ago and i was six months pregnant. We both love each other and it was a shock to me and it really broke my heart. I tried to call him and both of his lines were disconnected. I tried to reach him on social networks but he deleted me off of them. I tried to reach his parents and they told me that their son said that he does not love me and does not want to see me and they do not know what is wrong. I cried and cried everyday because I loved him very much. Until I gave birth and the baby was one year old, I could not get my love back. Again, I was confused. I do not know what to do and I also lost my job and I have no money to take care of the baby. I was miserable in life so I cried to my sister and told her my problem and said that she knew of one powerful spell caster that helped her when she could not get pregnant. I contacted him by email and he said he will help me and told me that a woman cast a spell upon my man and said he will help me break the spell so my man will come back to me and be mine forever. It was a great surprise to me that everything that he said came to pass in 48 hours. My man came back to me immediately, saying that I should forgive him. I am sending a very big thank you to this powerful and real spell caster. I pray for him to live long and do more of his wonderful work.

    Hello General Public, my names are Anna Van Alexandar and am from the western cape region of south Africa, a farmer by profession. I would like to testify about a loan company that helped me when i was facing financial problems at my farm. These problems started 6months ago when i needed a loan to boost my farm work,I came across so many loan companies That scammed me of the remaining small money i had, i never relented because i really need the loan.I was refereed by a good friend of mine to this loan company. We immediately contacted the loan company seeking the amount of $1,000,000.00 he then sent me an application. I completed all that was required from me, after an hour i was informed that my loan was approved. It took me by surprise, because i expected the loan to take a bit longer than that even though my friend told me that it will be approved the same day. My loan was transferred into my bank account that same day. I am sharing my testimony today with everyone so that if you happen to be facing a financial problem then kindly contact HARRY STEVEN LOANS. Please my fellow south Africans if you need a loan for any purpose at all i will advise you to contact this great loan company for help, Email: ( harrystevenloanfirm@yahoo.com OR harrystevenloanfirm@gmail.com ) so happy now all thanks to Mr HARRY STEVEN the General Manager of HARRY STEVEN LOANS and i also want to thank my friend for showing me the right path. Contact this loan company today if you need a loan and tell them that I Anna Van Alxendar referred you to them I have referred so many people to them and they helped them just the same way they helped me also, that makes me happy the more.
