Good improvements! Especially dragging the pieces on the diagram and the animated solution! Should become very popular.

A very welcome application, useful for any chess problem composer!
Diyan and his team have done a good job and they are constantly developing the application, taking into account the wishes of the users.
Obviously the smartphone limitations has led to some compromises, which sometimes affect the ease of use, but overall I have been a very happy user since the first version.

There are some wishes in my mind and I will send a detailed list of those to Diyan. One general wish: it would be nice to personalize settings (board size and colour etc) in such a way that they would be saved = the next session with the tool would start automatically with such settings. Now it seems that it is necessary to adjust the settings in the beginning of every new session.

Thanks Jorma! Even now you can prepare the app to keep you settings for the next session. Make the following:
1.Make some change of the board settings (and/or put some piece/s on the board);
2.Press the Back device button several times till the app become closed;
3.Open again the app and select the settings which you like (board size, color)
Now the app will remember them for the next session but when you close the app you should do it all time from the main Closing button of the device (not from the Back button)! In this way the app will keep your settings (well some time they can be lost again if you not use the app for a long time, but usually most of the times when you open the app all settings will be as you wish them)
