After the outstanding beta tests we have 3 months ago - huge thanks to all people who helped there, your are awesome, I couldn’t make it without your ideas and support! - the app is finally available. eBook Reader

I made chess eBook Reader that makes chess books interactive. Open a book, send it to analysis just the first time, once finished, double-click on any chess diagram in the book and explore it on the analysis board. More in comments from r/chess

A few months ago I proposed the idea of an app making chess eBooks interactive

Now, I'm hosting a small private beta testing round of the app. Testing is nothing time consuming, everything should take at most several minutes but if you like you can play with it as long as you want.

How to join

Anybody who enjoys chess eBooks and is interested in taking part in beta testing, please email me or send a PM on Reddit.

This is how the app looks at the moment:

So far 32 people signed up for the beta tests. I'm so excited for this!

I had that idea that hints could be useful in bot's responses, so I added them just the previous night.

Now, if possible, the bot will add two hints to its analysis:

  2. The second is about what exact move should be made

I'm considering two ways different ways for the app:

We're just few days after launching and people reached me out both privately and in the comments suggesting that it'd be nice to build a bot for r/chess that can work with the app and analyze chess images posted on Reddit.

All of us love the awesome u/ChessFenBot that was doing just that, but for some reason, it hasn't been working recently. Perhaps this is why I received some many request to make working for that use case.

so from now u/chessvision-ai-bot will be pleased to serve you!
