The quest for the perfect chess engine is not slowing down. Soon after the release of 9.4, followed by buggy 9.41 and bugfixed 9.42, the latest version of the commercial fleet leader is now ported to Android, as promised by Mark Lefler of the Komodo team in a forum post.
There's nothing clear yet for me to speculate about the improvement over the disappointing 9.3 but i must admit i've got high hopes this time. We'll soon see about this, no later than May-2016 release of Rapidroid ranking.
In contrast to rating lists based on Windows, Komodo 9.3 Android had performed bad, way behind its unique rival Stockfish-7, by a huge 70 ELO. The gap couldn't be explained by the default contempt of 10. It was exactly the same default setting with Komodo 9.2.
Remembering that Komodo 9.2 was the previous leader ahead of Stockfish 6 until TCEC-8 after which both engines have been updated for Windows and Android afterwards, Komodo 9.3 has quickly become a bad memory that a better version must erase.
I hope 9.42 will do exactly what's expected.
Komodo 9.42 for Android is a free update for owners of previous 9.X owners. Otherwise if you want to try it for the first time, don't waste your time for a completely free solution. It doesn't exist. As the price is reasonable, just buy it at GOOGLE PLAY.
In case you feel doubtful of another unexpected regression, you may backup your current version with Titanium Backup before downloading the update, so that if anything bad occurs, you have the option to revert back later on.
Don't forget: Once upgraded via Google Play, you can't install any previous 9.X version with regular methods. So, only Titanium can help for a downgrade.
