Download the brand new DGT Chess app

Dowload the brand new DGT Chess app from the App Store or from the Google Store

There is a brand new DGT Chess app for the Pegasus. In the past there was a DGT app developed by an external source. This app didn’t meet our high standards and the DGT team felt that developing an internal app was necessary to match with the great quality of the board. So, we re-built it from the ground up!

The DGT Chess app allows you to connect the DGT Pegasus board to your favourite chess platform, against old or new friends and without using any screens.

New

1. Completely rebuilt the way the app communicates with Lichess, now the app connects directly. There is no longer the need to wait for a connection. Also now the time setting options are compatible with the Lichess timing options.

2. Improved general app stability and responsiveness. You can start your game faster and start playing chess immediately.

3. Improved detection stability, the board detection is faster.

4. Improved game reconstruction

4.1. The app is much better in handling illegal moves or detection issues. If the board position is corrected, the user should be able to continue the game more easily.

5. Improved Bluetooth connection stability. The Bluetooth connection has been improved to increase the battery life.

6. Improved and added functionality for LED signals/move indications.

7. Enhanced rating matching; automatically connects with a player of the same level.

8. Groundwork for improved interface and useability. – To be finished.
