Save the game to SD does exactly what you want. It appends the game to a file, by default called "games.pgn" for games you enter, or "tour.pgn" for games that are played by automatic tournaments. You can change these default names (and paths) using the "Change Pathnames" command. You can also copy-and-paste games through the clipboard, or use the "share" button to import them in any other Chess gui that supports this feature.

Thank you for your reply (and even more for your software!). In Scid on the go I can insert the names for the players (and other information) when I'm saving the game. In Chess for Android the players names would be "Self" and I would have to insert the names later. So, while what I want is doable with Chess for Android, Scid on the Go keeps the workflow a bit simpler for my task.

I've done with an android application "x-plore" and moved to a nearby export.pgn folder, and then I was able to retrieve the file.


I checked this again today and the scid folder is visible now through mtp. Maybe the problem was due to having installed Scid on the go just an hour or two before?

(When the folder was not visible, I did what you suggested and copied the pgn file to an other folder with a file manager on the Nexus. Even the copied file was not visible through mtp although everything else in the folder was. :? I then tried to shutdown and reboot my Nexus but it did not make a difference. Today the copied file is also visible...)
