You can save the diagram only or to include also your own text:



cc2          cc3

You can create your own chess problems database


You can use so many fairy pieces and effects:


The only requirement for your smartphone is to have Android OS (preferably v.3 and higher) with 320x480 pixels or more (which practically include almost all Android smartphones nowadays).


There is a light version of the app which you can download and install for FREE (just contact me by email bellow)! But with light version all you can do is to use regular pieces and to save/load position (you can not rotate and move pieces, set a fence or crown, save and share an image of your problems and the updates of the app will not be available).

The price of the full version (highly recommended!) of ChessComposer is 10 EUR.

It includes:

- all functions of the app;

- all future updates;

- detailed manual for using;

- full help and support in case of any problems.


You can order the full version of ChessComposer v.1.0 directly from the "Buy now" button on the left side of the website using your PayPal account or Credit Card.


You will receive your personal installation file and manual for using the app by email on the same day.

The team of ChessComposer project is:
Diyan Kostadinov - Project manager
Dimitar Ivanov - Programmer
Shankar Ram - Operating support

Diyan Kostadinov: "I needed and I searched for such an app so long time in the stores but I never found. That's why I decided to create it! It is "must have" app for all composers who want to compose everywhere and everytime with no need of any other chess set and to composers who want to have database with their problems in their pocket! I hope that the app will be useful to many people in our community in same way as it is useful for me!"

Shankar Ram: "In Julia's Fairies forum, 2-Dec-2012, I had posted: ''In this age of smartphones, I think we need an application to create and store positions...'' Now such an app is ready. It will not only be the best ever pocket chess set but also a personal pocket chess problem database!"

The app is like an electronic chess set with which you can composing using many helpful options (including fairy pieces and effects). You can create and sharing diagrams, you can keep you schemes and continue work with them later and you can create chess problems database. (For now) it is without solving option.

Thanks, Diyan! I've tried the app! It really does all these things! Congratulations to all team!
It's great to have the board with unlimited number of fairy pieces being somewhere far from computer! The mobile phone is something which is always behind :)

Shankar Ram has already posted the information about ChessComposer in the forum of Julia'sFairies. But probably I'll add a separate post on site's home myself as well.

And.. yes.. adding solving engine would be a great next step! :) Good luck!

Thanks Diyan for the clarification. Even without the solving option I am sure it can be a very useful utility. Shankarram was looking for this for several years. Hope this gets him into composing again !!

For all of us, who have as a habit to compose on a magnetic board, this is a very useful app. It was easy to download a chess app and setup orthodox positions only, but now we have a sophisticated magnetic board, able to represent fairy pieces too, ready to use everywhere, easy to save positions, diagrams, send them via email etc. And of course, never lose a tiny magnet piece again!
I believe it is just a matter of time until this app exploits the power of wifi networks and cooperate with Popeye and/or Winchloe, giving us a more powerful tool.
Great job guys, keep on!

Es posible instalar, una vez comprado Chesscomposer, el programa en distintos dispositivos android, pertenecientes a la misma persona. ? O ha de comprarlo para cada dispositivo ?

Para cada nuevo dispositivo se debe instalar un nuevo archivo que es gratis. Pero pronto se publicara la nueva version del programa 5.0, que sera gratuita para todos, asi que esperar un poco.
