Chess Problem Software on Smartphones, PDAs, Tablets


Friends, which chess problem software, if any, do you use on your smartphone, PDA(anybody still use those?) or tablet?

Myself, I have a relatively ancient Casio PDA - Pocketviewer PV-S460. This has a powerful BASIC variant using which I wrote a small application to enter, store, edit and view positions. Pieces can be rotated so that fairy pieces can be represented. There is also some space for entering the solution and comments. No solving though!

I also have a Nokia 6275 cell phone. I wanted to write something similar in J2ME but never got started. As an alternative, I prepared and loaded jpeg representations of problems in 240x320 size(the screen resolution of this model). I used a combination of 1echecs font, excel and irfanview to prepare the jpegs. After this, I can view these jpegs on the cell phone. Nice, but no cigar!

Maybe one of the latest hotshot models can run linux in which case popeye could be loaded?

Problemist(mobile version) works fine on my HTC HD2 that runs Windows 6.5(extremely fast by the way, solves complex #4 in seconds). It likely won't run on the new Windows 7 phone because OS was completely redesigned.
