Info updated on:

Stockfish is a powerful chess engine for Mac users who wish to analyze their chess moves and improve their game strategy. You can also challenge a friend to play a chess game, save progress when it's necessary, and load previous matches to perform tactical analyses.

The app doesn't provide you with impressive graphics, but its interface is user-friendly and any chess player should be able to handle it. You can change the display mode between windowed and full screen and flip the board if necessary (change player position).

An advantage of Stockfish is the fact that the application lets you set a limit for the amount of used CPU resources during game analysis. You can do so from the Preferences menu and opt for the proper number of threads (1 to 4 CPU cores) and hash size (32 to 2048 MB).

To sum things up, Stockfish proves to be a reliable solution when it comes to analyzing chess gameplay. By working with this application you can learn which are the optimal moves, improve your game tactics, and check previous match strategies.
