Today, I'm sitting around, watching the kids swim and I go get a chess book to read. I pick up one of my Silman books and begin to read. The first chess diagram I come across, a thought pops into my head, "I wish I could just snap a picture of that diagram and then start moving the pieces. I wonder if there is an app for that?"
After a quick google search, the Play Store returns an app called ChessOcr. After downloading it and fiddling with it, I find that it works exactly as I had hoped.
The app author has a very nice video of how the app works.
I'll be sure to add this app to my growing list of Best Chess Apps on Android.
