Has auto play audio ads - unacceptable
by Mike 619472920 on 2019/05/21 01:57
I enjoyed playing this game, despite some minor bugs/usability issues. But they just started playing ads with audio. This is ridiculous and unacceptable. If you have to force ads on your users, at least don’t annoy everyone around us with the audio! Is there anyone thinking about the consequences? I am done and moving on.

Does putting a twist, increase a games ability to test a players expertise, or simply, gilding the lily?
EXCELLENT
by seavoyage on 2019/05/18 18:13
I love these version. It has REAL card faces like they should. It is simple and entertaining. Can’t wait to play everyday. Thanks for caring about the quality of the graphics and the feel of the game.
Constant REdownloading
by Mom23boysDSC on 2019/05/17 05:44
I am sick and tired of getting the daily message that I have new content to download. No, it’s not new. It’s the same set of extra card backs as I have previously downloaded. I should not have to reinstall them DAILY!
Awesome app, awesome developers.
by senordb on 2019/05/17 03:37
I’m an Android and iOS developer and this doesn’t come easy, but these developers are amazing. I’ve never had a crash or issue. Fantastic experience, awesome UI/UX, never bugs, very impressed. KUDDOS team. Wish you’d come work with me at Salesforce. ;)

I love this one! It’s the best of all of the free Solitaries.
Awesome game once again
by Steelo703 on 2019/05/16 03:31
Update 5/15/19 I received a developer response today which solved my issue. There is a theme section at the bottom of the first page. I selected the “Challenges” theme which works best for me. The Jumbo theme is also an option. Thanks Microsoft for responding so quickly. Update 5/10/19 See below. Update 12/15/18 I stopped playing this game several months ago when the font changed for the daily challenges. The cards are now harder to see and the overall game is less visually pleasing. Freecell looks dated. Please revert to the previous, larger screen template. I will update my review accordingly. Original review below I have been playing this game since they first released it. It is absolutely the best! I love the variety of games. The ads are not intrusive, they are in one place on the opening screen instead of interfering with gameplay. I never have any glitches. I mainly play the daily challenges but sometimes I play the events too. I like being able to go to the calendar and catch up on past days if I miss a few. I can’t believe that someone actually gave this just one star. Maybe it’s an old review because I do remember having a signin issue OVER A YEAR AGO. I am very good with updating my ratings if an issue is resolved, especially if I am contacted by the developer. Thanks Microsoft! Even though I use some Apple products, I still use many Windows applications and I won’t give up my pc.
Internet connection required; Good games
by Martin Prince on 2019/05/15 22:17
The games are great. But if you sign in and then try to play without an internet connection you won't be able to play. I wanted to play while I was flying and the app wouldn't load. So I tested when I got off the plane (with wireless turned off) and sure enough the app doesn't work. Why would an internet connection be required to play cards? Please fix this!
Card symbols are too small and difficult to read
by criz391 on 2019/05/15 00:53
Type too small
Great app for learning solitaire
by mrct4 on 2019/05/13 23:13
This app lets me easily learn the other versions of solitaire. Now I don’t have to just play Klondike.

The Best!
Timing on Events games.
by Hotplanes on 2019/05/11 03:34
Event games counts the time when you leave the game until return to complete the event, if you stop playing. This ruins a persons status for higher rankings and earning top awards.
Bummer
by App'e'ness on 2019/05/10 23:52
They’re made solitaire a drag to play
I love it but...
by Elizabeth4848 on 2019/05/10 21:52
I love your app, and have always used this version. Free cell is my absolute favorite, however I hate that that it auto finishes for you. I just wish there was at least an option to turn it off. Being able to finish the game myself would be a lot more fun than the app completing the end of each level for me. It takes away the mystery, and feeling of self accomplishment. Please create this option
Too many ads
by CHSHTY on 2019/05/10 05:03
Very strong push for paid subscription. Ads are overwhelming. Game as such deserves 5 stars, but ads make it too boring! Subscription is too pricey.
For the love of god do something about the buttons.
by Desiree M. Miller on 2019/05/09 08:21
I’d give this game a five but it most comfortable to hold the phone in landscape mode when playing. However in order to hold the phone securely you have to do so in a way that causes you to touch the buttons and interrupt your game countless times when you inevitability bum the wrong one. One of the developers should hold the phone in landscape mode and play for 10-20 minutes and see how often they hit the wrong button. I have small hands and I do it with an annoying frequency. I can’t imagine what it would be like for someone with big ones. Also move the hide the buttons slider up and away from the iPhone slide (bottom of screen) they’re far to close and you often can’t pull up the game buttons because it’s not registering that that’s what you’re trying to do.
Used to love it
by GreenMS on 2019/05/08 12:45
I really liked this app as a way to play solitaire. I’m a fan of all 5 main games they offer and even used to play the daily challenges. HOWEVER, I don’t have any interest in watching a bunch of ads to play solitaire and I have even less interest in paying an annual or monthly fee to play. Luckily there are lots of solitaire apps...
Daily challenges too long
by Why need a nickname on 2019/05/07 16:21
I have noticed a tendency to make some tripeaks and pyramid games excessively long. Asking for 13 of any card is too much for the daily challenge. The daily should be something that can be done in a few minutes as a diversion and not a major investment of time. It seems to me that is what the “Events” are for.
Review
by redhydrant on 2019/05/07 08:21
Yours is by far the best solitaire app on the net. I love all the challenges and the opportunity to get “promoted”!! Star Club is a lot of fun too. The imagination you’ve put into everything is outstanding!!! Thanks for all the fun and games!!!
Time used
by GZMe🥰 on 2019/05/06 07:22
It has become more difficult and less fun since the time to solve each game is now accumulated Ifyou are interrupted etc. the clock continues. Please resume the time used is just for the actual game solved,
Good game
by Broke-n-Hart on 2019/05/06 02:19
Too bad that you must introduce pop up ads It is terribly annoying
Best solitaire
by TrudyMac on 2019/05/05 21:04
It’s the tap action that makes this Solitaire better than others that you need to touch and drag. But the commercials are maddening!
Fantastic
by crh1831 on 2019/05/04 14:40
Great Game
New Scoring Method
by BC46553377 on 2019/05/03 18:58
Please change the scoring for the Klondike game. I love to play it, but I get frustrated because even if you score 2000, it hardly moves the bar. How do you turn off the Warning pop up? Not necessary to have it pop up. Once is enough.
Microsoft Freecell
by Reddridinghood on 2019/05/03 01:59
Love playing this game! Only critique I have is that there is no way to play the game in consecutive order except by typing in the nuber to start a new game. Can’t someone figure out a way to have the finished game automatically go to the next number? Otherwise, this game is addicting! Now on to game number 14,054😁!
Hard

Best Game Ever
by Chelle' Chel on 2019/05/02 01:29
I just want to say that I’m a huge fan of solitaire. This game has so many levels and it challenges you to think and better yourself. Each time I play my goal is to think about each move in a strategic way. Love this brain stimulator!
Crash city with extended adds
by solitaireplayer123456 on 2019/05/02 00:29
The game has locked up multiple times since the adds went to 30 seconds with no opt out. You have to restart phone to get fame to play
I love this
by cashdrummer on 2019/04/30 17:19
I love this app, I do not love the choice of advertising berrylook.com is a scam. They are a bait and switch company that rips off customers
Good games, but obviously some are not playing fair
by Nanchale on 2019/04/30 14:43
Love the games, but you can tell by the timing of several they are not physically playing themselves. It is not fair to have our score compared with theirs. You just can’t beat a computer generated player. It would also be nice if there were 20 games per set instead of 30.
Time counter
by Ami2three on 2019/04/29 03:19
This is a great game! I love solitaire and this adds a great twist to the games. I fell in love with it from the start and played daily. It would be better if the game only counted actual playing time during the events. Currently, if I stop playing in the morning and finish the event later that night, the game says I played in excess of 12 hours. I’d also like to see more events.
SFB
by SFBANAK on 2019/04/29 01:45
I’d like to see the option for easy, then the levels of increasing difficulty be available for Tri Peaks & Pyramid. I don’t understand why they don’t have that option while the other 3 games do. Also - I think it is unfair of you to have game boards that cannot be solved. On Pyramid & Tri-Peaks, there is no choice but to have random games. Please change this! I play to have fun & to challenge myself to a degree. Messing with unsolvable puzzles is a total waste of my time. I DO have many other things I HAVE to do in life! Those things cause stress in my life; I don’t need more here where I try to de-stress. Thank you
No Comparison
by HokieHoya on 2019/04/28 21:30
Simply put, no other solitaire game compares to this...and it’s Free!

Love to play
by Pocketasian on 2019/04/27 03:44
Love to play and the daily challenges and events are so fun, but the theme won't stay saved. Every time I open the app I have to reselect my chosen theme. Annoying bug.

Stop making the challenges so easy and less Klondike and more difficult spider in the events!
Ads? Et tu, Microsoft?

Spider lockup
by Silvershark69 on 2019/04/16 22:37
Moving stacks of more than two cards the stacks get locked in place! The game was a four star in daily challenge! 👎👎
Flawless game, too many “features”
by bbeat722 on 2019/04/15 01:38
Game play on each of the solitaire games is flawless - nothing critical to say about that. Also, ad placement and type is tasteful for a free app. I wish that there was a way to turn some of the “features” off. Recent updates have added levels and rankings to each of the games that seem to have no purpose other than encourage “moving up.” It seems like a way to make Solitaire more exciting. Really? Solitaire? Exciting? I play Solitaire because I want to chill out and unwind. Excitement is not what I’m after. It’s Solitaire! Five stars for being able to turn off levels, rankings, statistics and timers. I’d even put up with the occasional “boost” offer (?????) if the attempts at Solitaire adrenaline rushes could be optional.
Noisy annoying ads!
by Bills us on 2019/04/14 14:18
Even though I set my preferences to turn off sound, when your ads come on with the most annoying “music” that has nothing to do with the products. I’ve even seen a couple of games that I would like to try, but refuse to bow to your strong-arm tactics! Also I upgraded one device, but I can only play on one at a time. I am not going to pay three times.
Intrusive ads
by Al Kohallek on 2019/04/13 14:18
All I wanted was a port of ‘90s-era “sol.exe” to iOS. What I received is an app that plays unskippable 30-second animated ads in between games.

New phone
by Hitthebids on 2019/04/12 23:02
The home buttonless iPhone has been out for over a year. The game won’t let you swipe up to close. Is there a secret off switch? To late. Deleted.
IPhone Users Play As Well
by Hashtag KLOS on 2019/04/12 13:52
I enjoy the games; but please inform your developers that people with iPhones play these games as well. Newer versions of iPhone do not have a Home Button. It’s extremely difficult to exit the games with your current setup. “Swiping Up” causes all sorts of problems. Thank you.
Subscription only for phone?
by Sxyvixen on 2019/04/10 15:02
Seriously? I am signed in on my iPad and my desktop, and I paid for the subscription and it only works for my phone? So done with this crap.
Login doesn’t work on iOS
by LuckyCanoe on 2019/04/10 11:01
Not sure why app is offered for iPad when it takes way too long to login - and that’s in the rare case that authentication is actually working. Great app in Windows!
Issues since last update
by paulaa90 on 2019/04/07 21:32
I would rate this higher but lately it will not let me choose the difficulty level on any game. I am stuck playing ‘grandmaster’ level on the Solitaire game and there does not seem to be a way to change it. Also it would be nice to be able to choose a level in TriPeaks instead of always getting random levels. Please fix these issues!!!!
Breaking iOS conventions
by John at HellaSound on 2019/04/07 17:01
This game is fine, and does everything you’d expect from a solitaire game. However, it seems Microsoft did not adhere to iOS conventions, making the experience irritating. Don’t block the swipe-up gesture, kids. Also, adhering to the original desktop UI is cute, but not exactly idea for a mobile device. All in all, a strong game with some very poor choices.
Stupid horrible Ads!!!!!
by XandMan70 on 2019/04/07 15:30
Get rid of those stupid horrible ads!!!! I rate this -0- because of intrusive ads!!!!
Additional advertising
by Rom578042 on 2019/04/07 05:50
Devs decided to add additional ads. So much math. Very sad. Annual $10? C’mon guys.
Eliminate unwinable games
by Bruno1111 on 2019/04/06 18:06
When playing the Pyramid game from the home page, it doesn’t give me an option of the level to play. I get random deals and I often get a deal that cannot be won since all 4 of a card are dealt and covered by the pairs. Eliminate unwinable games for a 5 star rating
Excellent Game, Could Use a Few Tweaks
by 3WAgirl on 2019/04/06 16:10
I play this game almost every day. I love it, I love the daily challenges, and I love Spider most of all. Some things I would change: 1) When an impasse is reached in Spider, there’s no way to restart the game. In fact, there’s no way to restart any game in regular play. You can only start a new deck. What’s even weirder is that the warning sign says “quitting or restarting this game will count in your statistics” when you do it, so I feel like I’m missing a key option. 2) I have no option of playing a solvable deck if I choose Pyramid in regular mode. It’s always random, and that’s an option I’d like to change if I feel like it, just like all the other Solitaire games. 3) This is picky, but I liked the previous version of the “select game” window when beginning a new deck in regular play. The list is more straightforward, but somehow less classy-looking to me.

FIX THE TIMER!
by JamesBond. on 2019/04/05 21:22
I really like this game, especially the events, but it is becoming extremely frustrating how the developers won’t fix the timer issues. There have been several instances where I’ve opened an event challenge and if I press cancel, (the cancel button from before the deck even loads!), the timer will start anyways! It happens to me on my commute to work all the time where I open the challenge and without starting the game I press cancel to go back the event screen. If I close out of the app, when I come back on 9 hours later on my commute home, when I open that challenge and finish it the timer will be 9+ hours! And no I don’t just close the app without canceling the game I’m playing. Honestly unbelievable and extremely unfair. This and they have yet to get rid of the cheaters in the top 100, but that’s not an app issue directly I’m assuming.
Data pig
by chillyaphid on 2019/04/05 16:57
The new online version blew out my data plan before I realized it. I play to kill time not to compete. Not pleased with the software upgrade.
Good news, bad news
by pinot2me on 2019/04/04 02:33
This is a great app for the most part. If you enjoy solitaire-style games, and don’t want ads, the Premium subscription can be worth the price of admission, except... Sometimes after updates it gets in a loop about whether I have a subscription (to other reviewer: that is why you have to keep paying: you bought a subscription, not a forever deal. Buyer beware, read the small print, etc) Twice now the solution was to fully delete the app, then re-install. Banda-bing, Premium back, no more ads. A glitch MS folks should address... Another suggestion: allow users to turn of games they don’t play. I taught myself Pyramid and TriPeaks with your app, but will never take to Spider or FreeCell. Would love if they could simply be suppressed, and my gaming stats be adjusted accordingly. (o: Thanks for overall fun times, tho. Nice and chill.
Was great now terrible!
by Beesme2 on 2019/04/03 20:34
Was great until the latest updates. Now it is not known how to select the mode or difficulty.
4 Stars to 1 in a Single Release

Frequent and lengthy forced ads??? What on earth are you thinking??? I would pay some amount to remove them, but I WILL NOT sign up for a “premium subscription!” I’ll come back if you reverse this nonsense. Until then, bye.

Almost perfect
by crochetin on 2019/04/01 19:37
I play daily and they offer enough choices and levels of difficulty plus challenges to make it worth paying the yearly premium to skip the ads. My only frustration is that the premium payment is PER DEVICE! Had I known that, I would have waited before paying. I started playing on my laptop but now find it easier and more convenient to play on my tablet. Unfortunately my premium payment was on my laptop. I suffer thru relentless ads while my premium payment goes to waste. Seems to me, as I can play on only one device at a time, the premium mode should sync across devices. Disgruntled user ...
Great Game

Thought provoking, challenging and difficulty levels are realistically established by the app and the player at the beginning of each game... sms

You are constantly bombarded with ads and a request to sign in. The game also doesn’t work offline. there are better options out there
The Iconic Solitare
by HydraTheSammy on 2019/03/30 01:00
We’ve all played solitaire on our PCs at one point, and I have found a liking to it. It’s point system is rewarding and fun to challenge yourself. My one problem is it is a bit difficult to play spider on a phone, due to the small screen but what can one do about it. Nevertheless it is a fantastic classic and not gets old.
Issue with game
by JackCampagna on 2019/03/29 11:00
In spider solitaire, free cell solitaire and Klondike solitaire there is currently a glitch that prevents you from moving certain stacks of cards. Please fix this, I am a huge fan of this app.
Terrible offline
by truevissai on 2019/03/29 02:35
This app still doesn't handle offline situations. I've been playing with this for a couple of years, on iOS and Android. The only time I can participate in challenges such as Solitaire World Tour is during commute, on the subway, where reception is sporadic at best. I keep getting hours per challenge when the game can't sync fast enough to the server. It should be able to handle offline periods better. Cache the challenges, only count time spent on the game, not until it can sync. I just got 6 hours 56 minutes for an “easy” game I solved in 2 minutes, but offline, no sync, so I exited the game and then minimized the app when my stop came... ridiculous. Even when I just play Spider, I keep getting interrupted about important content to download, that I'm missing out when not connected... I get it, all is better online, but there is n o r e c e p t i o n underground. Apart from this, it’s a pretty good solitaire app, probably the best available. Features keep getting added, the ads are not too annoying.

If you start playing, be prepared, because you will get addicted. Just saying. Play at your own risk.
Great Game
by ROAdavid on 2019/03/20 13:27
Microsoft nails it! The new levels you achieve playing the daily challenge are great. A simple update to an already great game. This update adds a level of achievement to the game that makes it even more fun to play.
No internet connection
by Aburko on 2019/03/20 10:08
Can not get the app to work, everyday since last Friday the app will not connect to the internet to allow me to play the challenges or events, neither using WiFi or cellular data. I have reset the app, checked my settings, reset the phone. All other internet apps work.

Lies, right out the gate
by @marshall.gibsons on 2019/03/18 18:33
Kept getting spammed to sign in with my Microsoft account, and soon as I did, they promised "a week of ad free play." Immediately after signing in, hehe the first deal of cards... I was subjected to an ad. Tried restarting, relogging. So still ads. Give me a game, I can pay once, and not be bothered again.
Levels

Is there a way to turn off the “Levels”? They’re juvenile.

Very good
Constant connection problems
by Prodius54 on 2019/03/15 08:32
I am always having connection problems and being logged out when the app cannot connect to the internet. Also, it will spend a minute trying to connect even when the phone is on airplane mode or when I have the cellular data turned off while traveling internationally.
Great fun

Challenging at times. Easy at time. Great fun
Never thought it could happen
by Bingoac on 2019/03/13 23:04
Microsoft employs the best nerd type programmers. Or so we would think! I just played and replayed the pyramid solitaire game. And there was one ace missing!!! They goofed!!! Not all the cards were in the game. Who would have thought!!!

Adds time to the challenges
by all those names are not taken on 2019/03/13 15:39
When playing the challenges, for some reason the system adds time to game, which causes me not to rate higher. There is absolutely no way I spend 5 hours playing. I have a life and other things to do. I back out of the games to make sure I have unplaced minutes accumulating.
Great game, needs more accessibility
by GrandmaHolt on 2019/03/12 18:48
My grandma loves this game but her eyes aren’t so good anymore. There needs to be a way to make the cards text larger / more visible via a toggle that maybe disables the designs on the cards themselves in favor of large numbers (or anything!)
I love this ap.
by Wd1i on 2019/03/12 01:34
I would give it a 5 but there is a problem. This solitaire game keeps me entertained when I need to be. I enjoy it immensely, but there is a small problem with this ap. It will tell me that I am not connected to the internet, even though all the other apps see the WiFi channel or the cell signal, Solitaire will force me to reset the game to accept the WiFi portal. Bad design? Please fix this.
One serious problem
by Oz flyer on 2019/03/11 06:45
The game timing mechanism is not reliable. Today, a new challenge and I finished three games, closed the game and put it down til I had time later. I picked it up later and looking at the leader board said I had spent 12 hours on it. Almost funny except the three games I finished were the hardest ones. Have had suspicions for a while but this was just too obvious. Other than that I like the challenges and would give it a higher score.
What happen to this game
by Goddess 3 on 2019/03/10 03:00
So I have been playing for a long long while now and as soon as this game changed I absolutely can’t stand this version anymore. Sorry guys but I don’t like the whole level thing and the game cheats.
Fun

Keeps Crashing
by Dancin Sue on 2019/03/08 06:52
I finish all possible moves and it goes into some kind of loop and won't let me out. I don't receive the no more moves message and it highlights me back to the deck. This has happened 4 times in the last week. When I end the game, it tells me I'll receive a los as punishment for ending the game. Ha! Closing and reopening the app takes me right back to the looping game.
Microsoft
by Clulery on 2019/03/08 03:52
Nothing like Solitaire! I love playing this game! I play it several times a day, if I could all day non stop! But I wish Microsoft would get Microsoft Mahjong on iPhones (on Apple products). I love that game too! I finish play all the Star Club! I play daily challenges & event, I hope there is more games going to be added!I hope so really love this game!
Disgusting porn advertisement

Great game
by brian481516 on 2018/01/07 08:04
I play Klondike solitaire frequently, over 2,200 times. I play it different the most people. I like to use easy settings and just try to beat my time. My best time is 1:06. 3 things I’d really like to see in a future version: 1) I really wish the bar at the bottom at least had an option to always stay visible. A lot of times I’m reaching for a button on the bottom and accidentally close it. That can be annoying when I’m trying to play as fast as I can. 2) it would be a really interesting feature if you could re-play a deck at then end of the game... or even save a deck so it can be played again at a later date (possibly multiple times). 3) it would be fun to be able to see more stats, average game time, etc. ideally it would be awesome to see a graph with game time on the y axis and date played on the x axis (plots points would be red or green for win or loss). Then I could see how I’m doing over time.
Latest version ruined game
by Hannahbrian on 2018/09/21 12:13
I rarely review apps and up until the latest version released near the end of September 2018 I would have rated this 5 stars. But the latest version introduced ads in the middle of gameplay. I thought to myself “I play this game a lot, I’d be willing to pay $5 to get rid of ads.” I clicked the “premium” button in game and saw it was $10. Ouch - that’s a lot to pay for a solitaire game - but I do play it a lot so maybe it is worth it? But then I saw it was $10 ANNUALLY!!!!!! You want me to pay and keep paying EVERY YEAR for a game of solitaire? With all due respect: what are you smoking? Actually do not tell me what you are smoking because getting me to smoke the same stuff is the only way you will ever get me to pay for a subscription for a game of solitaire. You took a great thing and ruined it with greed. I hope for the sake of the players that your greed ruins this game and you fade into an occasional memory. I’m sure there are other solitaire games out there - time to start looking for one that is not greedy. Even if they charge a one-time fee I’ll gladly pay it over your greedy subscription.
Excellent Game, Could Use a Few Tweaks
by 3WAgirl on 2019/04/06 16:10
I play this game almost every day. I love it, I love the daily challenges, and I love Spider most of all. Some things I would change: 1) When an impasse is reached in Spider, there’s no way to restart the game. In fact, there’s no way to restart any game in regular play. You can only start a new deck. What’s even weirder is that the warning sign says “quitting or restarting this game will count in your statistics” when you do it, so I feel like I’m missing a key option. 2) I have no option of playing a solvable deck if I choose Pyramid in regular mode. It’s always random, and that’s an option I’d like to change if I feel like it, just like all the other Solitaire games. 3) This is picky, but I liked the previous version of the “select game” window when beginning a new deck in regular play. The list is more straightforward, but somehow less classy-looking to me.
So I LOVED this game then ADS ruined it
by USMCgirls on 2018/10/27 07:38
So this game WAS amazing. With minimum ads either at the bottom of the screen or a short AD... Now the ads are more frequent and one lasted a minute. This last time was the last straw. I was trying to do one of the daily challenges and when I clicked it an Ad popped up. When the X came up I clicked and got a warning saying I won’t receive my award if I end it early I continued and it went back to the daily challenge menu. So I clicked the challenge again and it played another ad, this time I let it complete and when it ended I clicked the X and it came up with the error. So I chose the option to let it keep going. It just stayed on the “download now” screen not changing so finally I quit the ad and it went back to the challenge menu ad. I am sick of games over doing ads. I get they need ads for money but overdoing it is another thing. Sacrificing user experience for money, loses you both users and eventually money.
Microsoft missed the boat with the opportunity for cross platform capability.
by VonPadraig on 2019/03/04 04:49
Whoopi! Microsoft allows me to log into my Xbox live account. Bit Whoop! Doesn’t mean a dang thing. There is ZERO cross over to remember games from my iPad to my iPhone using the SAME Xbox Live account AND my SAME iCloud account. Oh yeah, it asks to recover from Xbox cloud, it it recovers NOTHING. Just as bad, there is no cross platform capability for, IOS to my XBox and Windows 10. REALLY? If I am logged into my Live account, you should be able to store my game information!!! Worse still, I have the Premium Subscription on my Windows10/Xbox side, but Microsoft doesn’t allow that to carry over to IOS. And visa versa. I was trying to switch to something that would sync. I wanted to pay ONCE for a subscription. Since I can’t sync, I’ll just go back to the competitor’s product that doesn’t barrage me with ads. You screwed up Microsoft.
For the love of god do something about the buttons.
by Desiree M. Miller on 2019/05/09 08:21
I’d give this game a five but it most comfortable to hold the phone in landscape mode when playing. However in order to hold the phone securely you have to do so in a way that causes you to touch the buttons and interrupt your game countless times when you inevitability bum the wrong one. One of the developers should hold the phone in landscape mode and play for 10-20 minutes and see how often they hit the wrong button. I have small hands and I do it with an annoying frequency. I can’t imagine what it would be like for someone with big ones. Also move the hide the buttons slider up and away from the iPhone slide (bottom of screen) they’re far to close and you often can’t pull up the game buttons because it’s not registering that that’s what you’re trying to do.
UTTERLY PATHETIC!!
by MicrosoftSucksMonkeyBrains on 2018/09/29 01:08
All these years of having solitaire on regular PC and now these lazy morons can’t even get a simple reproduction of the same game to work properly on a phone. This update is even worse than the last one. Now, at least it can keep up to the speed of the player— but now when you’re playing and you get to the end of the deck, you can sit and tap the spot (where the deck was sourced from) to restart the deck from the beginning... over and over and over indefinitely and it will keep registering your tap on the position to the left, on the final card displayed. In other words, they literally programmed it wrong to where it registers a tap - not where your finger is - but on the adjacent card. IDIOTS!!!! On the last update, it did this sometimes. Now, it does it every single game. I wish all these lazy complacent morons at Microsoft would just pack it in and go home and let somebody else do the job the right way.
Best Solitaire App But Key Features Still Missing
by Heather_Dianne on 2018/07/26 21:05
This is probably the best solitaire app available yet in the App Store. I play almost every day and try to complete every event. I love that we get all five of the traditional solitaire games in one. It’s easy to lose time playing. The one thing that is disappointing is that we are missing key features even after the app has been around for a couple years now. Even though the Windows PC app has them, the mobile app is still missing the “star club” and themes features. I have been waiting for months, hoping we’d get a new update with this feature but it has yet to come. Hopefully we can get it before the end of the year but we’ll see. That’s the only issue I’ve faced with the app.
The latest update is not good
by PapaMikey on 2018/09/27 13:36
I’ve been playing these solitaire games for quite awhile but with this latest update, promotions for other games are a hinderance to my playing pleasure. The promos pop up at the beginning of various games and also in the Daily Challenge and the other challenges. It’s irritating to me and I hope they’ll change it back. Two stars but that may change. It depends on Microsoft. Microsoft could have just asked for a one time upgrade fee but instead decided to charge a HIGH monthly fee to bypass those irritating game ads that pop up and make this game less enjoyable. I’m sure a lot of people including myself are going to be playing it less now. Dropping stars to one now.
“Put” the Soli’ in “Solitaire”
by Toopienator on 2018/11/16 20:54
I have a history of having been made fun of a lot. But, I have no one to play much with, so I play Solitaire. Okay, does anyone else love this? I know people do, but as much as I do? No, that’s not actually possible, is it? No. That’d be stupid to think that. This game is solid all the way around. People love it, but not as much as me. I think that Solitaire is classic any way you put it. The joy of playing a classic card game on the iPhone, iPad, Windows Phone, Mac OS, or Microsoft Windows Operating System is more than you’d think. It’s amazing. No matter how you put it. No matter how much change you make. It’s always great. I love it. It sure does put the Soli’ in Solitaire.
Best solitaire app
by LsLg Fire on 2017/10/04 22:53
The first time I played solitaire was the Microsoft Windows XP game. And now Microsoft has this app. I love the classic winning animation I wish you could turn off the new ones so I see the nostalgia inducing one only. Also the old fireworks from Spider Solitaire would be awesome the didn’t have a shine or glow they were just a blast of circles with a black outline and the color would fade to another color. I love the use of Xbox live gamerscore and I’m using this app to get mine higher. I really want to see star club. I hate that there are those achievements for it and you guys haven’t added it yet. I hope it will come eventually thanks for making the app
All apps in one
by Isgoodapptowaist time on 2017/08/11 22:34
You get 5 different type of card games to play with levels to them. Get bored of one game just play a different type of game. I don't have to download different apps to play different types of games because this app has them all. You get 5 daily challenge for the day. All different levels as well to earn coins. The app does crash after an add, the screen goes black when the add ends. Just press the home button to exit the screen, Go back into the app again and you'll be back to the game you choice to play, ready to play without the add again.
Keeps the brain active!
by snelson600 on 2018/11/18 17:39
I use the free version and just deal with the ads. (My cat likes to watch them because they are so active 😺). I am pretty much happy with it. My only complaint is that some of the random decks are unsolvable and although they tell you that, you end up trying to solve it many times before you give up, still not knowing if it was solvable or not. Although you can choose the complexity of your games, you cannot choose a range, like " medium or harder" or something like that. Perhaps you can on the paid version. I like the graphics.
Almost perfect
by crochetin on 2019/04/01 19:37
I play daily and they offer enough choices and levels of difficulty plus challenges to make it worth paying the yearly premium to skip the ads. My only frustration is that the premium payment is PER DEVICE! Had I known that, I would have waited before paying. I started playing on my laptop but now find it easier and more convenient to play on my tablet. Unfortunately my premium payment was on my laptop. I suffer thru relentless ads while my premium payment goes to waste. Seems to me, as I can play on only one device at a time, the premium mode should sync across devices. Disgruntled user ...
The Ads Ruined It
by Girlierider on 2018/10/02 15:51
This was, by far, my favorite game to play. However, the latest update forces you to watch full 30 second ads before playing each game. That’s ridiculous. There are at least five other Solitaire games that don’t play ads. I’ll go play those and I highly recommend anyone thinking about downloading this game do the same. Don’t waste your time on this game. It is so not worth the time you waste waiting for each ad to end. Also, there is a new, really horrible delay between when you tap a card and when it actually moves. The last update turned this game into absolute trash. Seriously, do not waste your time on this game. Go find almost any other solitaire game in the App Store; chances are, it’ll be a better game than this one has turned into.
Super Fun Game...when it works
by CMP spinner on 2018/06/25 10:50
I like this app because it has all the different solitaire games, daily challenges and other competitions. However most of the time when I open the app, I get error messages that it can’t connect to the cloud, so I can’t play the competitions or daily challenges. This can be very frustrating. I think maybe it is because I am playing on an Apple device and Microsoft isn’t exactly compatible like Apple is with Microsoft apps (Word, Excel, etc.) So if that would ever get fixed, it could definitely be a 5 star app.
Let Us Customize
by CDWSC on 2017/06/06 08:50
The main reason I chose this solitaire app over some other was because the PC version lets you customize the appearance. When I am trying to relax I can't stand over-cluttered interfaces with garish colors and shapes. I have been waiting for months for this to be added to an update. They'll update the app to change the heckin icon to something seasonal, but they won't give us appearance customization? No thanks. The other complaints about ads freezing the app also stand. But at this point I'm so users to apps that crash that this doesn't bother me that much anymore. But if you're going to have an unstable app you better at least make it pretty.
Good except for Pyramid
by Shania'sDad on 2018/03/18 21:35
I freely admit I play this every day. Thoroughly enjoy the daily challenges and regular play of the games. Except Pyramid. You missed the boat there folks. Glitch in the programming or something but a lot of the games are un-winnable. It is impossible to win a game when you put 3 sevens on the bottom row and no sixes in the deck. Seriously, you have the best solitaire game out there but if there is no way to win, and this isn’t a once in a great while thing it’s several games in a row. It’s frustrating and more than once I shut down and play something else, which is not what your advertisers are going to want I would assume, but then again we all know what assume means....
With OS 12 update, Microsoft went to the dark side with this
by MaryEstock on 2018/12/16 21:20
First, I REALLY LIKE the games, and up until last week tolerated the long, repetitive demos of the stupid candy-crush-alike games. Recently,the ads went to the dark side, showing 18+ pornographic images for a trashy game called “Scatter Shots” that I find highly offensive (and I’m WAY over 18), but my 12 year old granddaughter also uses my iPad and enjoys the solitaire games. Now I can’t let her use my iPad unless I uninstall the solitaire games. I feel like the push of such off-color images is an attempt to force me to pay to play the games. I’m already paying hugely to use Microsoft Office 365. Not willing to pay to play solitaire. Shame on you ad sellers for trashing up your games.
Advertisements with sound ruin what was a great app
by Paincho on 2019/02/12 06:56
This used to be my favorite way to wind down at the end of the day but last year they start inserting advertisement with audio that automatically play when trying to load certain areas, regardless of the audio settings you’ve configured inside the application. It’s really awful and apparently the only way around it is subscription. I would have gladly paid a moderate flat fee to unlock the application and remove ads but the subscription model is totally ridiculous, especially considering these are all just repackaged versions of games that pre-date Microsoft and computers as a whole by a long long time. I wouldn’t mind the ads if they didn’t have audio automatically play, truly awful.
Why?
by Felinegrl on 2019/02/03 09:00
Why all the ads and why are so many apps subscriptions? I am on a limited income and can't afford too many. I generally hate Microsoft. Way too many bugs. And crashes. That is why I want to Apple. I love their products. No viruses etc, no crashes. I started on pcs and learned on Microsoft. Great game except for ads! I don't mind small ones and get the need for them. Have paid up to 5.00 dollars to get rid of ads. They take away from games and slow my devices down. As this is an old mini with IOS 9.1.5 or so the ads really gum it up. Please rethink them. Thank you.
Microsoft has lost its mind
by RobertThornburg on 2018/09/26 05:28
I understand the need for “free” software to be ad-supported. And Microsoft’s solitaire collection was perfectly reasonable until 21-Sept-2018. Suddenly, we were forced to endure intrusive, noisy video ads for games geared toward pre-schoolers. We’re constantly being pestered to register for on-line gaming services we won’t want. Hey, Microsoft! The whole point of playing Solitaire is that it’s solo. Look it up in a dictionary. We don’t want to interact with other people! The final straw for one family member was when she was suddenly directed to a Microsoft login page in Safari, and it was difficult to get rid of the page. She immediately deleted the game. Fortunately, we still have Windows 7, the last sane Microsoft operating system. We can play Solitaire there. I have experienced this same Safari page hijacking, and will no longer tolerate it, either. Sorry, guys. You’ve wrecked a game which we’ve been playing for over 20 years, going back to Windows 95. This relentless push for ad revenue is a major reason why we’re moving away from Windows and toward Apple products. Nice knowing you, Microsoft. Write when you get a clue.
DO NOT UPDATE TO VERSION 4.2!!!!!!!!!!
by Rockstar Ryan on 2018/09/21 22:02
In the update description, they said that Star Club and theme support has been added. What they failed to mention, however, was that they made the iPad version of MSC just like the PC version. This includes UNSTOPPABLE, FULL-SCREEN, 30-SECOND VIDEO ADS after ALMOST EVERY GAME, and smaller buttons in the top row and menu that are impossible to hit accurately with my fingers. Trust me, the benefits of Star Club and Themes in no way outweigh the costs of not being able to play uninterrupted by ads for 5 minutes. This game used to be one of the very few games that I played on a daily basis. Now I’m considering deleting this app and switching to a different Solitaire app if this isn’t fixed soon. My message to anyone about to download this update: DON’T DO IT!!!
Needs replay option to earn 5 stars
by Tigermom36 on 2018/07/04 16:44
This has all my favorite solitaire games in one collection and amazing graphics! Great for passing time or relaxing after a long day. My only complaint is there is no replay option unless you are working on daily challenges or an event. Currently, the only way to replay a casual game is to keep selecting the undo option until you are back to the beginning of the game. When the replay option is added to the casual games, I will change my rating to 5 stars.
Best and most addicting set of solitaire around!
by 3riverstim on 2018/07/29 04:23
This set of five solitaire games is great on its own. Then add a daily challenge of changing skills. I feel that the day is not complete until I finish this challenge!! Now, add a timed competition that includes 2 to 3 hundred thousand competitors. It has now become my favorite relaxing process. It feels good to know that this 66 year old retiree can still get top three in my group. While I love chess, backgammon, poker and other games of skill and chance, this is the best computer game that I have played!!!!!!
Greed has ruined this game.
by hlfnlsn on 2019/03/04 20:21
I, like many others here, don’t ever write reviews, but this latest update from Microsoft is the epitome of corporate greed. It was a free game, so as much as I loathed the addition of ads I somewhat understood. I put up with it for a bit, but then they just got too annoying, and so I thought “I really do enjoy playing this game from time to time, so I’ll just buy the premium version for whatever they want”. Come to find out, I can’t BUY it. I can only rent it for an annual fee. For solitaire. It is a card game that has been around for as long as cards have been around, and they want me to pay every year?!?! They have lost their minds!!!!! It is a digital deck of cards. The greed represented with this move is abhorrent. I’m done.
Challenging Game
by Tazzylark on 2019/01/21 10:31
I love Microsoft Solitaire. It is a lot of fun. I never knew there were five different versions of solitaire, only knew about Klondike and Spider. I really like the tournaments, they keep my brain thinking. Just wish they happened more often. I also like how beginning and advance players can all find something to do. You can play just one style, against people in the tournaments, the daily challenges or after you’ve played a while participate in the Star Challenges. Keep up the good work Microsoft.
please please read this
by Katie2001 on 2019/02/15 01:20
okay so i love the microsoft games and i especially like this one. it’s super fun and it keeps me entertained for hours! this next thing doesn’t pertain to this game, but i would love it if you guys could add microsoft mahjong to the app store. i’ve seen other people suggest this too and it would be really great if you could. other microsoft computer games would also be fun if you added. thank you for reading! ♥️ ps for anyone saying they don’t like the ads, download an ADBLOCKER!! they are FREE on the appstore. ty :)
Classic Solitaire Fun!
by Pelean on 2017/12/19 15:55
I love this collection of MS solitaire games. The games aren't flashy or gimmicky, but have a simple and classic design. I'm a long-time Windows user, but I play the games much more often on my iPhone than I ever have on any PC. The daily challenges are great, as well as the competitions. I don't have an XBox, no comment on the integration there. My only complaint is that the cards on the iPad (at least for daily challenges) have a slightly different design. It is distracting to me, so I only play on my iPhone now.
New animations cannot be disabled
by Umpelty on 2019/02/16 13:13
Microsoft Solitaire Collection has been my go-to "I want something to occupy my eyes and fingers" iOS game for years, now - according to the statistics screen, I've played in excess of sixteen thousand games of Klondike just since I got my phone repaired. With the new leveling-system update, the game has added unskippable animations to the end-of-game score-and-levelup dialog box (which, according to the statistics screen, I see every minute and a half in Klondike). I have game end animations disabled, I have background animations disabled, I have the Reduce Motion setting turned on in iOS settings itself, and this zooming animation plays anyway. I cannot play this game without disabling this animation. Which means I cannot play this game.
Are you kidding? Let solitaire be solitaire.
by ZzxYyz55345 on 2019/02/15 18:43
All of a sudden Microsoft solitaire says “New Content- do you want to download”. I say “remind me later”, because I don’t want their new version which is return-to-baby-level-so-we-can-force-you-to-jump-thru-our-hoops. BUT ITS ALREADY LOADED. No thanks. I don’t want to play only simple and guaranteed solvable games for the next three months or whatever. I don’t want experience points. I don’t want to buy whatever it is you are monetizing. I DO want to play the way I was playing. I’m off to get a plain old app that just presents a solitaire game. I already uninstalled Wordament after they made that experience points based too. Now solitaire has to get the same fate.
Constantly freezes
by justagirl513 on 2018/08/20 17:34
I wouldn’t even give it the one star if I had the option to not do so. Kept hassling me about setting up an account for blah blah blah reasons. Finally set up the account and it’s been nothing but issues since. Freezing up and not responding. Lagging and taking minutes to move the cards where they go. Enjoyed the app greatly before setting up the account. But honestly it’s to the point I’m gonna uninstall it. I don’t wish to be harassed about an account that has been nothing but a hassle just to play solitaire. Guess I’ll be giving another app a try because this one isn’t worth the level of harassment I’d have to endure to play without logging into an account.

June 18 regular game has caused my app to go into a repeating LOADING cycle. I tried reloading but no go. Is anyone else having this problem and what's the solution? I have a solution, DELETE the App and go to the App Store and find it in purchased apps. Tap the app to download it. When it has finished loading open it and after it's up sign in and tell it yes. After you are signed in pick a game and all your games and awards will be reinstated. Good luck.

I am very disappointed that I have to purchase the Premium level so that I can play on my iPad when I have already purchased that level for my Windows computer at home. The program recognizes all the "badges" and "awards" that I have attained, but for some reason cannot see that I have already paid for the Premium level. What a rip!!! And, here we are, a year later. I have paid my subscription fee for the Premium level again...and, yet, again i am having to look at ads on my iPad. Are you trying to discriminate against Apple users or do you think it is your duty to collect a fee for each platform??? This will be my last subscription!
Fun, but premium doesn't transfer
by Tippwill on 2017/09/09 18:09
I love playing the challenges and it's convenient to play on my phone. I've been playing this suite of games for a long time on my computer so I bought the premium there. I was excited to see it available for iPhone, but disappointed that premium doesn't transfer across platforms. If I don't play on my phone then I won't play all the challenges for the month. I'm looking forward to the rest of the features becoming available on iPhone.
Solitaire Lovers Dream
by Bizzybeesc on 2017/09/04 20:22
Thrilled to find this iPad compatible app today. I haven't played this game since switching to Apple devices. The daily challenges are my favorite . There are five different solitaire games each day with varying levels of difficulty. So enjoyable! Wrote my first review Aug 28. Today is Sept 4 and I have had nothing but issues with this app. Daily challenges won't load, app closes out among other problems. I cannot recommend this app after all.
Love the games
by ruthcook3 on 2017/08/02 15:03
I love the daily challenges but am finding them much less fun with the new format. Is there a way to get back to the older version? Sounds like a lot of others agree. Game developers listened and gave players format options. Now I have no complaints and this game is the first thing I do in the morning with my cup of cappuccino. It is a great brain challenger and I feel that any game that forces me to use my brain and and keep me thinking is a good thing!
Awesome app...and addictive
by Steve from the Ranch on 2017/06/15 01:12
First - buy the app and you won't have to put up with ads. It's a one-year purchase. The challenges are fun to play every day, and my wife - who also bought the app - and I challenge each other on how well we do each month. I'm hoping that Microsoft opens up the "coming soon" features soon, as they've been that way for six months. Still, this well designed app keeps me engaged each and every day.
Please give traditional cardface option for iPad
by Homschlrmom on 2017/12/20 02:22
I really love this game. Once I almost deleted, then found the daily challenges. I had never payed anything but three-draw solitaire. Tried the other games, enjoy free cell and spider the most now. When I run my phone battery down, I would like to use the iPad version, but I cannot handle the different card faces. The business and difference make it too hard for me to sort out. I like familiarity. Can’t choosing different decks be an option?
This Solitaire Collection Rocks
by chers4ever1 on 2018/05/07 11:42
Nothing except pure fun for me. My only complaint is that I can’t go back to the days each month to finish all of the daily challenges. I dislike the fact that once a month is over there’s no way to go back and finish the days I missed for prior months. Other than that very solid and enjoyable games. I hope that one day you can make it possible to finish challenges in prior months. xoxoxo
20-30 second commercials are excruciating
by ls643 on 2017/05/03 18:16
Agree 100% with the other reviews that mention the ads being out of control. Not only are they incredibly long, but they happen between every 3-4 games (or every time you start a new game after opening the app). In addition to that, the ads don't load the close screen correctly most of the time so you have to close the app and reopen it...which results in having to watch another ad... I played every single day when this first came out, but now I don't play at all and only keep it on my phone in hopes that all the complaints will result in them doing something about the ads.
New update = commercials
by Boeckelr on 2018/09/23 02:13
I downloaded this last week and it was great. Today I tried to use it and there were all sorts of long commercials that you have to watch before you can play and between games. What’s so odious about it is that Microsoft wants people to pay a monthly fee to get rid of the commercials. This is solitaire, not Fortnite. Who is going to pay a few dollars a month to play solitaire? Not me. All of these monthly service fees add up. I’m also not going to pay $10 a year, which is what Microsoft wants. Once again, this is solitaire. They gave it away for free back in the late 80s or early 90s in windows 3 and 3.1 if I remember correctly. What kind of innovations do they feel warrant a $2/month fee or a $10/year flat fee? It’s a joke, which is why I erased it on all of my devices this morning when I saw the commercials. Commercials like this are for apps like wood puzzle which are made by small developers....not the corporation with the third highest market cap. Microsoft should be ashamed of this.
Premium Pyramid Play - Using Same Card Arrangements
by Batman Lives in Minneapolis on 2019/02/16 02:07
I have the premium version of this game. Last night I was playing the regular Pyramid without any specific challenge. After playing for an hour I began to notice the new deals were arrangements I had already played. The arrangements might group with other arrangements during one play; but I am constantly going over the same moves as I did before. I’ve come across this issue with free solitaire apps... but I paid for the premium so I wouldn’t encounter “do-overs”. I play solitaire to relax - now I am annoyed.
My current addiction
by Mark31415926 on 2018/12/03 03:38
I like that you can get a deal that’s guaranteed to be solvable. I succeed 20% of the time, but I suspect I should be able to do better. The hints are sometimes poor and I’d like the option not to to remove a complete suit: it can be useful for temporary exchanges. Also, I wish the bottom panel wouldn’t come up so often or the latest news come down from the top. I’m very clumsy with grabbing cards: often I have to try twice just to do it, for no obvious reason.
Klondike Solitaire from Microsoft
by KMA review on 2018/06/25 21:01
This game is one of only a few games that doesn’t end each game with those annoying popup ads to entice you to try a new game. It’s easy to play but, it’s still challenging enough that you don’t get bored. I can spend more time relaxing and playing solitaire without wasting my time closing out the ads. Best of all is it’s a free app... **Also there are 4 different solitaire game included in this app....
New update has screwed up your app
by 194922 on 2019/02/20 22:41
Your app update just messed up a good game. There was nothing wrong with the app the way it was and now you have to start from scratch. Every time I start to play, I get a screen message telling me that there is new content available. I have downloaded it 4 times, it tells me it was downloaded and it keeps telling me that new content is available. I’m tired of the message and the new update. Guess it’s time to find a new app. Have a great day Microsoft, you just lost a long time player.
5 stars for Star Club
by Christine I. on 2017/10/16 18:44
I’m only giving this four out of five because I’m becoming bored with the game. I completed all of the challenges plus all of the goals for the five different games. I have been waiting and waiting, and waiting, for star club. Seems like a carrot is being dangled in front of our nose, in as much as it will never ever come out. Perhaps when it does I shall give the game five stars. That is my carrot to the developers.
SFB
by SFBANAK on 2019/04/29 01:45
I’d like to see the option for easy, then the levels of increasing difficulty be available for Tri Peaks & Pyramid. I don’t understand why they don’t have that option while the other 3 games do. Also - I think it is unfair of you to have game boards that cannot be solved. On Pyramid & Tri-Peaks, there is no choice but to have random games. Please change this! I play to have fun & to challenge myself to a degree. Messing with unsolvable puzzles is a total waste of my time. I DO have many other things I HAVE to do in life! Those things cause stress in my life; I don’t need more here where I try to de-stress. Thank you
Really Nice! Don’t change a thing!
by Sidthecow on 2019/03/05 01:49
I love that this app is unique and different. It has multiple different game modes. You can choose between different game types. I like be xp points. It even syncs with the cloud to sync across multiple devices. You can also sign in with Xbox live. You can change your themes and card type! And Unlock Achievements! I would have to say this app is perfect, please keep it the same

Has auto play audio ads - unacceptable
by Mike 619472920 on 2019/05/21 01:57
I enjoyed playing this game, despite some minor bugs/usability issues. But they just started playing ads with audio. This is ridiculous and unacceptable. If you have to force ads on your users, at least don’t annoy everyone around us with the audio! Is there anyone thinking about the consequences? I am done and moving on.
Stick to Hoyle?
by danchest1947 on 2019/05/18 22:41
Does putting a twist, increase a games ability to test a players expertise, or simply, gilding the lily?
EXCELLENT
by seavoyage on 2019/05/18 18:13
I love these version. It has REAL card faces like they should. It is simple and entertaining. Can’t wait to play everyday. Thanks for caring about the quality of the graphics and the feel of the game.
Constant REdownloading
by Mom23boysDSC on 2019/05/17 05:44
I am sick and tired of getting the daily message that I have new content to download. No, it’s not new. It’s the same set of extra card backs as I have previously downloaded. I should not have to reinstall them DAILY!
Awesome app, awesome developers.
by senordb on 2019/05/17 03:37
I’m an Android and iOS developer and this doesn’t come easy, but these developers are amazing. I’ve never had a crash or issue. Fantastic experience, awesome UI/UX, never bugs, very impressed. KUDDOS team. Wish you’d come work with me at Salesforce. ;)

by eyemonster on 2019/05/16 21:23
I love this one! It’s the best of all of the free Solitaries.
Awesome game once again
by Steelo703 on 2019/05/16 03:31
Update 5/15/19 I received a developer response today which solved my issue. There is a theme section at the bottom of the first page. I selected the “Challenges” theme which works best for me. The Jumbo theme is also an option. Thanks Microsoft for responding so quickly. Update 5/10/19 See below. Update 12/15/18 I stopped playing this game several months ago when the font changed for the daily challenges. The cards are now harder to see and the overall game is less visually pleasing. Freecell looks dated. Please revert to the previous, larger screen template. I will update my review accordingly. Original review below I have been playing this game since they first released it. It is absolutely the best! I love the variety of games. The ads are not intrusive, they are in one place on the opening screen instead of interfering with gameplay. I never have any glitches. I mainly play the daily challenges but sometimes I play the events too. I like being able to go to the calendar and catch up on past days if I miss a few. I can’t believe that someone actually gave this just one star. Maybe it’s an old review because I do remember having a signin issue OVER A YEAR AGO. I am very good with updating my ratings if an issue is resolved, especially if I am contacted by the developer. Thanks Microsoft! Even though I use some Apple products, I still use many Windows applications and I won’t give up my pc.
Internet connection required; Good games
by Martin Prince on 2019/05/15 22:17
The games are great. But if you sign in and then try to play without an internet connection you won't be able to play. I wanted to play while I was flying and the app wouldn't load. So I tested when I got off the plane (with wireless turned off) and sure enough the app doesn't work. Why would an internet connection be required to play cards? Please fix this!
Card symbols are too small and difficult to read
by criz391 on 2019/05/15 00:53
Type too small
Great app for learning solitaire
by mrct4 on 2019/05/13 23:13
This app lets me easily learn the other versions of solitaire. Now I don’t have to just play Klondike.
Killing Time
by BillyBullethead on 2019/05/12 12:03
The Best!
Timing on Events games.
by Hotplanes on 2019/05/11 03:34
Event games counts the time when you leave the game until return to complete the event, if you stop playing. This ruins a persons status for higher rankings and earning top awards.
Bummer
by App'e'ness on 2019/05/10 23:52
They’re made solitaire a drag to play
I love it but...
by Elizabeth4848 on 2019/05/10 21:52
I love your app, and have always used this version. Free cell is my absolute favorite, however I hate that that it auto finishes for you. I just wish there was at least an option to turn it off. Being able to finish the game myself would be a lot more fun than the app completing the end of each level for me. It takes away the mystery, and feeling of self accomplishment. Please create this option
Too many ads
by CHSHTY on 2019/05/10 05:03
Very strong push for paid subscription. Ads are overwhelming. Game as such deserves 5 stars, but ads make it too boring! Subscription is too pricey.
For the love of god do something about the buttons.
by Desiree M. Miller on 2019/05/09 08:21
I’d give this game a five but it most comfortable to hold the phone in landscape mode when playing. However in order to hold the phone securely you have to do so in a way that causes you to touch the buttons and interrupt your game countless times when you inevitability bum the wrong one. One of the developers should hold the phone in landscape mode and play for 10-20 minutes and see how often they hit the wrong button. I have small hands and I do it with an annoying frequency. I can’t imagine what it would be like for someone with big ones. Also move the hide the buttons slider up and away from the iPhone slide (bottom of screen) they’re far to close and you often can’t pull up the game buttons because it’s not registering that that’s what you’re trying to do.
Used to love it
by GreenMS on 2019/05/08 12:45
I really liked this app as a way to play solitaire. I’m a fan of all 5 main games they offer and even used to play the daily challenges. HOWEVER, I don’t have any interest in watching a bunch of ads to play solitaire and I have even less interest in paying an annual or monthly fee to play. Luckily there are lots of solitaire apps...
Daily challenges too long
by Why need a nickname on 2019/05/07 16:21
I have noticed a tendency to make some tripeaks and pyramid games excessively long. Asking for 13 of any card is too much for the daily challenge. The daily should be something that can be done in a few minutes as a diversion and not a major investment of time. It seems to me that is what the “Events” are for.
Review
by redhydrant on 2019/05/07 08:21
Yours is by far the best solitaire app on the net. I love all the challenges and the opportunity to get “promoted”!! Star Club is a lot of fun too. The imagination you’ve put into everything is outstanding!!! Thanks for all the fun and games!!!
Time used
by GZMe🥰 on 2019/05/06 07:22
It has become more difficult and less fun since the time to solve each game is now accumulated Ifyou are interrupted etc. the clock continues. Please resume the time used is just for the actual game solved,
Good game
by Broke-n-Hart on 2019/05/06 02:19
Too bad that you must introduce pop up ads It is terribly annoying
Best solitaire
by TrudyMac on 2019/05/05 21:04
It’s the tap action that makes this Solitaire better than others that you need to touch and drag. But the commercials are maddening!
Fantastic
by crh1831 on 2019/05/04 14:40
Great Game
New Scoring Method
by BC46553377 on 2019/05/03 18:58
Please change the scoring for the Klondike game. I love to play it, but I get frustrated because even if you score 2000, it hardly moves the bar. How do you turn off the Warning pop up? Not necessary to have it pop up. Once is enough.
Microsoft Freecell
by Reddridinghood on 2019/05/03 01:59
Love playing this game! Only critique I have is that there is no way to play the game in consecutive order except by typing in the nuber to start a new game. Can’t someone figure out a way to have the finished game automatically go to the next number? Otherwise, this game is addicting! Now on to game number 14,054😁!
Hard

Best Game Ever
by Chelle' Chel on 2019/05/02 01:29
I just want to say that I’m a huge fan of solitaire. This game has so many levels and it challenges you to think and better yourself. Each time I play my goal is to think about each move in a strategic way. Love this brain stimulator!
Crash city with extended adds
by solitaireplayer123456 on 2019/05/02 00:29
The game has locked up multiple times since the adds went to 30 seconds with no opt out. You have to restart phone to get fame to play
I love this
by cashdrummer on 2019/04/30 17:19
I love this app, I do not love the choice of advertising berrylook.com is a scam. They are a bait and switch company that rips off customers
Good games, but obviously some are not playing fair
by Nanchale on 2019/04/30 14:43
Love the games, but you can tell by the timing of several they are not physically playing themselves. It is not fair to have our score compared with theirs. You just can’t beat a computer generated player. It would also be nice if there were 20 games per set instead of 30.
Time counter
by Ami2three on 2019/04/29 03:19
This is a great game! I love solitaire and this adds a great twist to the games. I fell in love with it from the start and played daily. It would be better if the game only counted actual playing time during the events. Currently, if I stop playing in the morning and finish the event later that night, the game says I played in excess of 12 hours. I’d also like to see more events.

Love to play and the daily challenges and events are so fun, but the theme won't stay saved. Every time I open the app I have to reselect my chosen theme. Annoying bug.

Flawless game, too many “features”
by bbeat722 on 2019/04/15 01:38
Game play on each of the solitaire games is flawless - nothing critical to say about that. Also, ad placement and type is tasteful for a free app. I wish that there was a way to turn some of the “features” off. Recent updates have added levels and rankings to each of the games that seem to have no purpose other than encourage “moving up.” It seems like a way to make Solitaire more exciting. Really? Solitaire? Exciting? I play Solitaire because I want to chill out and unwind. Excitement is not what I’m after. It’s Solitaire! Five stars for being able to turn off levels, rankings, statistics and timers. I’d even put up with the occasional “boost” offer (?????) if the attempts at Solitaire adrenaline rushes could be optional.
Noisy annoying ads!
by Bills us on 2019/04/14 14:18
Even though I set my preferences to turn off sound, when your ads come on with the most annoying “music” that has nothing to do with the products. I’ve even seen a couple of games that I would like to try, but refuse to bow to your strong-arm tactics! Also I upgraded one device, but I can only play on one at a time. I am not going to pay three times.
Intrusive ads
by Al Kohallek on 2019/04/13 14:18
All I wanted was a port of ‘90s-era “sol.exe” to iOS. What I received is an app that plays unskippable 30-second animated ads in between games.

by Hitthebids on 2019/04/12 23:02
The home buttonless iPhone has been out for over a year. The game won’t let you swipe up to close. Is there a secret off switch? To late. Deleted.
IPhone Users Play As Well
by Hashtag KLOS on 2019/04/12 13:52
I enjoy the games; but please inform your developers that people with iPhones play these games as well. Newer versions of iPhone do not have a Home Button. It’s extremely difficult to exit the games with your current setup. “Swiping Up” causes all sorts of problems. Thank you.
Subscription only for phone?
by Sxyvixen on 2019/04/10 15:02
Seriously? I am signed in on my iPad and my desktop, and I paid for the subscription and it only works for my phone? So done with this crap.
Login doesn’t work on iOS
by LuckyCanoe on 2019/04/10 11:01
Not sure why app is offered for iPad when it takes way too long to login - and that’s in the rare case that authentication is actually working. Great app in Windows!
Issues since last update
by paulaa90 on 2019/04/07 21:32
I would rate this higher but lately it will not let me choose the difficulty level on any game. I am stuck playing ‘grandmaster’ level on the Solitaire game and there does not seem to be a way to change it. Also it would be nice to be able to choose a level in TriPeaks instead of always getting random levels. Please fix these issues!!!!
Breaking iOS conventions
by John at HellaSound on 2019/04/07 17:01
This game is fine, and does everything you’d expect from a solitaire game. However, it seems Microsoft did not adhere to iOS conventions, making the experience irritating. Don’t block the swipe-up gesture, kids. Also, adhering to the original desktop UI is cute, but not exactly idea for a mobile device. All in all, a strong game with some very poor choices.
Stupid horrible Ads!!!!!

Eliminate unwinable games
by Bruno1111 on 2019/04/06 18:06
When playing the Pyramid game from the home page, it doesn’t give me an option of the level to play. I get random deals and I often get a deal that cannot be won since all 4 of a card are dealt and covered by the pairs. Eliminate unwinable games for a 5 star rating
Excellent Game, Could Use a Few Tweaks
by 3WAgirl on 2019/04/06 16:10
I play this game almost every day. I love it, I love the daily challenges, and I love Spider most of all. Some things I would change: 1) When an impasse is reached in Spider, there’s no way to restart the game. In fact, there’s no way to restart any game in regular play. You can only start a new deck. What’s even weirder is that the warning sign says “quitting or restarting this game will count in your statistics” when you do it, so I feel like I’m missing a key option. 2) I have no option of playing a solvable deck if I choose Pyramid in regular mode. It’s always random, and that’s an option I’d like to change if I feel like it, just like all the other Solitaire games. 3) This is picky, but I liked the previous version of the “select game” window when beginning a new deck in regular play. The list is more straightforward, but somehow less classy-looking to me.

FIX THE TIMER!
by JamesBond. on 2019/04/05 21:22
I really like this game, especially the events, but it is becoming extremely frustrating how the developers won’t fix the timer issues. There have been several instances where I’ve opened an event challenge and if I press cancel, (the cancel button from before the deck even loads!), the timer will start anyways! It happens to me on my commute to work all the time where I open the challenge and without starting the game I press cancel to go back the event screen. If I close out of the app, when I come back on 9 hours later on my commute home, when I open that challenge and finish it the timer will be 9+ hours! And no I don’t just close the app without canceling the game I’m playing. Honestly unbelievable and extremely unfair. This and they have yet to get rid of the cheaters in the top 100, but that’s not an app issue directly I’m assuming.
Data pig
by chillyaphid on 2019/04/05 16:57
The new online version blew out my data plan before I realized it. I play to kill time not to compete. Not pleased with the software upgrade.
Good news, bad news
by pinot2me on 2019/04/04 02:33
This is a great app for the most part. If you enjoy solitaire-style games, and don’t want ads, the Premium subscription can be worth the price of admission, except... Sometimes after updates it gets in a loop about whether I have a subscription (to other reviewer: that is why you have to keep paying: you bought a subscription, not a forever deal. Buyer beware, read the small print, etc) Twice now the solution was to fully delete the app, then re-install. Banda-bing, Premium back, no more ads. A glitch MS folks should address... Another suggestion: allow users to turn of games they don’t play. I taught myself Pyramid and TriPeaks with your app, but will never take to Spider or FreeCell. Would love if they could simply be suppressed, and my gaming stats be adjusted accordingly. (o: Thanks for overall fun times, tho. Nice and chill.
Was great now terrible!

Frequent and lengthy forced ads??? What on earth are you thinking??? I would pay some amount to remove them, but I WILL NOT sign up for a “premium subscription!” I’ll come back if you reverse this nonsense. Until then, bye.

I play daily and they offer enough choices and levels of difficulty plus challenges to make it worth paying the yearly premium to skip the ads. My only frustration is that the premium payment is PER DEVICE! Had I known that, I would have waited before paying. I started playing on my laptop but now find it easier and more convenient to play on my tablet. Unfortunately my premium payment was on my laptop. I suffer thru relentless ads while my premium payment goes to waste. Seems to me, as I can play on only one device at a time, the premium mode should sync across devices. Disgruntled user ...

The Iconic Solitare
by HydraTheSammy on 2019/03/30 01:00
We’ve all played solitaire on our PCs at one point, and I have found a liking to it. It’s point system is rewarding and fun to challenge yourself. My one problem is it is a bit difficult to play spider on a phone, due to the small screen but what can one do about it. Nevertheless it is a fantastic classic and not gets old.
Issue with game
by JackCampagna on 2019/03/29 11:00
In spider solitaire, free cell solitaire and Klondike solitaire there is currently a glitch that prevents you from moving certain stacks of cards. Please fix this, I am a huge fan of this app.
Terrible offline
by truevissai on 2019/03/29 02:35
This app still doesn't handle offline situations. I've been playing with this for a couple of years, on iOS and Android. The only time I can participate in challenges such as Solitaire World Tour is during commute, on the subway, where reception is sporadic at best. I keep getting hours per challenge when the game can't sync fast enough to the server. It should be able to handle offline periods better. Cache the challenges, only count time spent on the game, not until it can sync. I just got 6 hours 56 minutes for an “easy” game I solved in 2 minutes, but offline, no sync, so I exited the game and then minimized the app when my stop came... ridiculous. Even when I just play Spider, I keep getting interrupted about important content to download, that I'm missing out when not connected... I get it, all is better online, but there is n o r e c e p t i o n underground. Apart from this, it’s a pretty good solitaire app, probably the best available. Features keep getting added, the ads are not too annoying.

Adds time to the challenges
by all those names are not taken on 2019/03/13 15:39
When playing the challenges, for some reason the system adds time to game, which causes me not to rate higher. There is absolutely no way I spend 5 hours playing. I have a life and other things to do. I back out of the games to make sure I have unplaced minutes accumulating.
Great game, needs more accessibility
by GrandmaHolt on 2019/03/12 18:48
My grandma loves this game but her eyes aren’t so good anymore. There needs to be a way to make the cards text larger / more visible via a toggle that maybe disables the designs on the cards themselves in favor of large numbers (or anything!)
I love this ap.
by Wd1i on 2019/03/12 01:34
I would give it a 5 but there is a problem. This solitaire game keeps me entertained when I need to be. I enjoy it immensely, but there is a small problem with this ap. It will tell me that I am not connected to the internet, even though all the other apps see the WiFi channel or the cell signal, Solitaire will force me to reset the game to accept the WiFi portal. Bad design? Please fix this.
One serious problem
by Oz flyer on 2019/03/11 06:45
The game timing mechanism is not reliable. Today, a new challenge and I finished three games, closed the game and put it down til I had time later. I picked it up later and looking at the leader board said I had spent 12 hours on it. Almost funny except the three games I finished were the hardest ones. Have had suspicions for a while but this was just too obvious. Other than that I like the challenges and would give it a higher score.
What happen to this game
by Goddess 3 on 2019/03/10 03:00

Keeps Crashing
by Dancin Sue on 2019/03/08 06:52
I finish all possible moves and it goes into some kind of loop and won't let me out. I don't receive the no more moves message and it highlights me back to the deck. This has happened 4 times in the last week. When I end the game, it tells me I'll receive a los as punishment for ending the game. Ha! Closing and reopening the app takes me right back to the looping game.
Microsoft
by Clulery on 2019/03/08 03:52
Nothing like Solitaire! I love playing this game! I play it several times a day, if I could all day non stop! But I wish Microsoft would get Microsoft Mahjong on iPhones (on Apple products). I love that game too! I finish play all the Star Club! I play daily challenges & event, I hope there is more games going to be added!I hope so really love this game!

Great game
by brian481516 on 2018/01/07 08:04
I play Klondike solitaire frequently, over 2,200 times. I play it different the most people. I like to use easy settings and just try to beat my time. My best time is 1:06. 3 things I’d really like to see in a future version: 1) I really wish the bar at the bottom at least had an option to always stay visible. A lot of times I’m reaching for a button on the bottom and accidentally close it. That can be annoying when I’m trying to play as fast as I can. 2) it would be a really interesting feature if you could re-play a deck at then end of the game... or even save a deck so it can be played again at a later date (possibly multiple times). 3) it would be fun to be able to see more stats, average game time, etc. ideally it would be awesome to see a graph with game time on the y axis and date played on the x axis (plots points would be red or green for win or loss). Then I could see how I’m doing over time.
Latest version ruined game
by Hannahbrian on 2018/09/21 12:13
I rarely review apps and up until the latest version released near the end of September 2018 I would have rated this 5 stars. But the latest version introduced ads in the middle of gameplay. I thought to myself “I play this game a lot, I’d be willing to pay $5 to get rid of ads.” I clicked the “premium” button in game and saw it was $10. Ouch - that’s a lot to pay for a solitaire game - but I do play it a lot so maybe it is worth it? But then I saw it was $10 ANNUALLY!!!!!! You want me to pay and keep paying EVERY YEAR for a game of solitaire? With all due respect: what are you smoking? Actually do not tell me what you are smoking because getting me to smoke the same stuff is the only way you will ever get me to pay for a subscription for a game of solitaire. You took a great thing and ruined it with greed. I hope for the sake of the players that your greed ruins this game and you fade into an occasional memory. I’m sure there are other solitaire games out there - time to start looking for one that is not greedy. Even if they charge a one-time fee I’ll gladly pay it over your greedy subscription.
Excellent Game, Could Use a Few Tweaks
by 3WAgirl on 2019/04/06 16:10
I play this game almost every day. I love it, I love the daily challenges, and I love Spider most of all. Some things I would change: 1) When an impasse is reached in Spider, there’s no way to restart the game. In fact, there’s no way to restart any game in regular play. You can only start a new deck. What’s even weirder is that the warning sign says “quitting or restarting this game will count in your statistics” when you do it, so I feel like I’m missing a key option. 2) I have no option of playing a solvable deck if I choose Pyramid in regular mode. It’s always random, and that’s an option I’d like to change if I feel like it, just like all the other Solitaire games. 3) This is picky, but I liked the previous version of the “select game” window when beginning a new deck in regular play. The list is more straightforward, but somehow less classy-looking to me.
So I LOVED this game then ADS ruined it
by USMCgirls on 2018/10/27 07:38
So this game WAS amazing. With minimum ads either at the bottom of the screen or a short AD... Now the ads are more frequent and one lasted a minute. This last time was the last straw. I was trying to do one of the daily challenges and when I clicked it an Ad popped up. When the X came up I clicked and got a warning saying I won’t receive my award if I end it early I continued and it went back to the daily challenge menu. So I clicked the challenge again and it played another ad, this time I let it complete and when it ended I clicked the X and it came up with the error. So I chose the option to let it keep going. It just stayed on the “download now” screen not changing so finally I quit the ad and it went back to the challenge menu ad. I am sick of games over doing ads. I get they need ads for money but overdoing it is another thing. Sacrificing user experience for money, loses you both users and eventually money.
Microsoft missed the boat with the opportunity for cross platform capability.
by VonPadraig on 2019/03/04 04:49
Whoopi! Microsoft allows me to log into my Xbox live account. Bit Whoop! Doesn’t mean a dang thing. There is ZERO cross over to remember games from my iPad to my iPhone using the SAME Xbox Live account AND my SAME iCloud account. Oh yeah, it asks to recover from Xbox cloud, it it recovers NOTHING. Just as bad, there is no cross platform capability for, IOS to my XBox and Windows 10. REALLY? If I am logged into my Live account, you should be able to store my game information!!! Worse still, I have the Premium Subscription on my Windows10/Xbox side, but Microsoft doesn’t allow that to carry over to IOS. And visa versa. I was trying to switch to something that would sync. I wanted to pay ONCE for a subscription. Since I can’t sync, I’ll just go back to the competitor’s product that doesn’t barrage me with ads. You screwed up Microsoft.
For the love of god do something about the buttons.
by Desiree M. Miller on 2019/05/09 08:21
I’d give this game a five but it most comfortable to hold the phone in landscape mode when playing. However in order to hold the phone securely you have to do so in a way that causes you to touch the buttons and interrupt your game countless times when you inevitability bum the wrong one. One of the developers should hold the phone in landscape mode and play for 10-20 minutes and see how often they hit the wrong button. I have small hands and I do it with an annoying frequency. I can’t imagine what it would be like for someone with big ones. Also move the hide the buttons slider up and away from the iPhone slide (bottom of screen) they’re far to close and you often can’t pull up the game buttons because it’s not registering that that’s what you’re trying to do.
UTTERLY PATHETIC!!
by MicrosoftSucksMonkeyBrains on 2018/09/29 01:08
All these years of having solitaire on regular PC and now these lazy morons can’t even get a simple reproduction of the same game to work properly on a phone. This update is even worse than the last one. Now, at least it can keep up to the speed of the player— but now when you’re playing and you get to the end of the deck, you can sit and tap the spot (where the deck was sourced from) to restart the deck from the beginning... over and over and over indefinitely and it will keep registering your tap on the position to the left, on the final card displayed. In other words, they literally programmed it wrong to where it registers a tap - not where your finger is - but on the adjacent card. IDIOTS!!!! On the last update, it did this sometimes. Now, it does it every single game. I wish all these lazy complacent morons at Microsoft would just pack it in and go home and let somebody else do the job the right way.
Best Solitaire App But Key Features Still Missing
by Heather_Dianne on 2018/07/26 21:05
This is probably the best solitaire app available yet in the App Store. I play almost every day and try to complete every event. I love that we get all five of the traditional solitaire games in one. It’s easy to lose time playing. The one thing that is disappointing is that we are missing key features even after the app has been around for a couple years now. Even though the Windows PC app has them, the mobile app is still missing the “star club” and themes features. I have been waiting for months, hoping we’d get a new update with this feature but it has yet to come. Hopefully we can get it before the end of the year but we’ll see. That’s the only issue I’ve faced with the app.
The latest update is not good
by PapaMikey on 2018/09/27 13:36
I’ve been playing these solitaire games for quite awhile but with this latest update, promotions for other games are a hinderance to my playing pleasure. The promos pop up at the beginning of various games and also in the Daily Challenge and the other challenges. It’s irritating to me and I hope they’ll change it back. Two stars but that may change. It depends on Microsoft. Microsoft could have just asked for a one time upgrade fee but instead decided to charge a HIGH monthly fee to bypass those irritating game ads that pop up and make this game less enjoyable. I’m sure a lot of people including myself are going to be playing it less now. Dropping stars to one now.
“Put” the Soli’ in “Solitaire”
by Toopienator on 2018/11/16 20:54
I have a history of having been made fun of a lot. But, I have no one to play much with, so I play Solitaire. Okay, does anyone else love this? I know people do, but as much as I do? No, that’s not actually possible, is it? No. That’d be stupid to think that. This game is solid all the way around. People love it, but not as much as me. I think that Solitaire is classic any way you put it. The joy of playing a classic card game on the iPhone, iPad, Windows Phone, Mac OS, or Microsoft Windows Operating System is more than you’d think. It’s amazing. No matter how you put it. No matter how much change you make. It’s always great. I love it. It sure does put the Soli’ in Solitaire.
Best solitaire app
by LsLg Fire on 2017/10/04 22:53
The first time I played solitaire was the Microsoft Windows XP game. And now Microsoft has this app. I love the classic winning animation I wish you could turn off the new ones so I see the nostalgia inducing one only. Also the old fireworks from Spider Solitaire would be awesome the didn’t have a shine or glow they were just a blast of circles with a black outline and the color would fade to another color. I love the use of Xbox live gamerscore and I’m using this app to get mine higher. I really want to see star club. I hate that there are those achievements for it and you guys haven’t added it yet. I hope it will come eventually thanks for making the app
All apps in one
by Isgoodapptowaist time on 2017/08/11 22:34
You get 5 different type of card games to play with levels to them. Get bored of one game just play a different type of game. I don't have to download different apps to play different types of games because this app has them all. You get 5 daily challenge for the day. All different levels as well to earn coins. The app does crash after an add, the screen goes black when the add ends. Just press the home button to exit the screen, Go back into the app again and you'll be back to the game you choice to play, ready to play without the add again.
Keeps the brain active!
by snelson600 on 2018/11/18 17:39
I use the free version and just deal with the ads. (My cat likes to watch them because they are so active 😺). I am pretty much happy with it. My only complaint is that some of the random decks are unsolvable and although they tell you that, you end up trying to solve it many times before you give up, still not knowing if it was solvable or not. Although you can choose the complexity of your games, you cannot choose a range, like " medium or harder" or something like that. Perhaps you can on the paid version. I like the graphics.

The Ads Ruined It
by Girlierider on 2018/10/02 15:51
This was, by far, my favorite game to play. However, the latest update forces you to watch full 30 second ads before playing each game. That’s ridiculous. There are at least five other Solitaire games that don’t play ads. I’ll go play those and I highly recommend anyone thinking about downloading this game do the same. Don’t waste your time on this game. It is so not worth the time you waste waiting for each ad to end. Also, there is a new, really horrible delay between when you tap a card and when it actually moves. The last update turned this game into absolute trash. Seriously, do not waste your time on this game. Go find almost any other solitaire game in the App Store; chances are, it’ll be a better game than this one has turned into.
Super Fun Game...when it works
by CMP spinner on 2018/06/25 10:50
I like this app because it has all the different solitaire games, daily challenges and other competitions. However most of the time when I open the app, I get error messages that it can’t connect to the cloud, so I can’t play the competitions or daily challenges. This can be very frustrating. I think maybe it is because I am playing on an Apple device and Microsoft isn’t exactly compatible like Apple is with Microsoft apps (Word, Excel, etc.) So if that would ever get fixed, it could definitely be a 5 star app.

by CDWSC on 2017/06/06 08:50
The main reason I chose this solitaire app over some other was because the PC version lets you customize the appearance. When I am trying to relax I can't stand over-cluttered interfaces with garish colors and shapes. I have been waiting for months for this to be added to an update. They'll update the app to change the heckin icon to something seasonal, but they won't give us appearance customization? No thanks. The other complaints about ads freezing the app also stand. But at this point I'm so users to apps that crash that this doesn't bother me that much anymore. But if you're going to have an unstable app you better at least make it pretty.
Good except for Pyramid
by Shania'sDad on 2018/03/18 21:35
I freely admit I play this every day. Thoroughly enjoy the daily challenges and regular play of the games. Except Pyramid. You missed the boat there folks. Glitch in the programming or something but a lot of the games are un-winnable. It is impossible to win a game when you put 3 sevens on the bottom row and no sixes in the deck. Seriously, you have the best solitaire game out there but if there is no way to win, and this isn’t a once in a great while thing it’s several games in a row. It’s frustrating and more than once I shut down and play something else, which is not what your advertisers are going to want I would assume, but then again we all know what assume means....
With OS 12 update, Microsoft went to the dark side with this
by MaryEstock on 2018/12/16 21:20
First, I REALLY LIKE the games, and up until last week tolerated the long, repetitive demos of the stupid candy-crush-alike games. Recently,the ads went to the dark side, showing 18+ pornographic images for a trashy game called “Scatter Shots” that I find highly offensive (and I’m WAY over 18), but my 12 year old granddaughter also uses my iPad and enjoys the solitaire games. Now I can’t let her use my iPad unless I uninstall the solitaire games. I feel like the push of such off-color images is an attempt to force me to pay to play the games. I’m already paying hugely to use Microsoft Office 365. Not willing to pay to play solitaire. Shame on you ad sellers for trashing up your games.
Advertisements with sound ruin what was a great app
by Paincho on 2019/02/12 06:56
This used to be my favorite way to wind down at the end of the day but last year they start inserting advertisement with audio that automatically play when trying to load certain areas, regardless of the audio settings you’ve configured inside the application. It’s really awful and apparently the only way around it is subscription. I would have gladly paid a moderate flat fee to unlock the application and remove ads but the subscription model is totally ridiculous, especially considering these are all just repackaged versions of games that pre-date Microsoft and computers as a whole by a long long time. I wouldn’t mind the ads if they didn’t have audio automatically play, truly awful.
Why?
by Felinegrl on 2019/02/03 09:00
Why all the ads and why are so many apps subscriptions? I am on a limited income and can't afford too many. I generally hate Microsoft. Way too many bugs. And crashes. That is why I want to Apple. I love their products. No viruses etc, no crashes. I started on pcs and learned on Microsoft. Great game except for ads! I don't mind small ones and get the need for them. Have paid up to 5.00 dollars to get rid of ads. They take away from games and slow my devices down. As this is an old mini with IOS 9.1.5 or so the ads really gum it up. Please rethink them. Thank you.
Microsoft has lost its mind
by RobertThornburg on 2018/09/26 05:28
I understand the need for “free” software to be ad-supported. And Microsoft’s solitaire collection was perfectly reasonable until 21-Sept-2018. Suddenly, we were forced to endure intrusive, noisy video ads for games geared toward pre-schoolers. We’re constantly being pestered to register for on-line gaming services we won’t want. Hey, Microsoft! The whole point of playing Solitaire is that it’s solo. Look it up in a dictionary. We don’t want to interact with other people! The final straw for one family member was when she was suddenly directed to a Microsoft login page in Safari, and it was difficult to get rid of the page. She immediately deleted the game. Fortunately, we still have Windows 7, the last sane Microsoft operating system. We can play Solitaire there. I have experienced this same Safari page hijacking, and will no longer tolerate it, either. Sorry, guys. You’ve wrecked a game which we’ve been playing for over 20 years, going back to Windows 95. This relentless push for ad revenue is a major reason why we’re moving away from Windows and toward Apple products. Nice knowing you, Microsoft. Write when you get a clue.
DO NOT UPDATE TO VERSION 4.2!!!!!!!!!!
by Rockstar Ryan on 2018/09/21 22:02
In the update description, they said that Star Club and theme support has been added. What they failed to mention, however, was that they made the iPad version of MSC just like the PC version. This includes UNSTOPPABLE, FULL-SCREEN, 30-SECOND VIDEO ADS after ALMOST EVERY GAME, and smaller buttons in the top row and menu that are impossible to hit accurately with my fingers. Trust me, the benefits of Star Club and Themes in no way outweigh the costs of not being able to play uninterrupted by ads for 5 minutes. This game used to be one of the very few games that I played on a daily basis. Now I’m considering deleting this app and switching to a different Solitaire app if this isn’t fixed soon. My message to anyone about to download this update: DON’T DO IT!!!
Needs replay option to earn 5 stars
by Tigermom36 on 2018/07/04 16:44
This has all my favorite solitaire games in one collection and amazing graphics! Great for passing time or relaxing after a long day. My only complaint is there is no replay option unless you are working on daily challenges or an event. Currently, the only way to replay a casual game is to keep selecting the undo option until you are back to the beginning of the game. When the replay option is added to the casual games, I will change my rating to 5 stars.
Best and most addicting set of solitaire around!
by 3riverstim on 2018/07/29 04:23
This set of five solitaire games is great on its own. Then add a daily challenge of changing skills. I feel that the day is not complete until I finish this challenge!! Now, add a timed competition that includes 2 to 3 hundred thousand competitors. It has now become my favorite relaxing process. It feels good to know that this 66 year old retiree can still get top three in my group. While I love chess, backgammon, poker and other games of skill and chance, this is the best computer game that I have played!!!!!!
Greed has ruined this game.
by hlfnlsn on 2019/03/04 20:21
I, like many others here, don’t ever write reviews, but this latest update from Microsoft is the epitome of corporate greed. It was a free game, so as much as I loathed the addition of ads I somewhat understood. I put up with it for a bit, but then they just got too annoying, and so I thought “I really do enjoy playing this game from time to time, so I’ll just buy the premium version for whatever they want”. Come to find out, I can’t BUY it. I can only rent it for an annual fee. For solitaire. It is a card game that has been around for as long as cards have been around, and they want me to pay every year?!?! They have lost their minds!!!!! It is a digital deck of cards. The greed represented with this move is abhorrent. I’m done.
Challenging Game
by Tazzylark on 2019/01/21 10:31
I love Microsoft Solitaire. It is a lot of fun. I never knew there were five different versions of solitaire, only knew about Klondike and Spider. I really like the tournaments, they keep my brain thinking. Just wish they happened more often. I also like how beginning and advance players can all find something to do. You can play just one style, against people in the tournaments, the daily challenges or after you’ve played a while participate in the Star Challenges. Keep up the good work Microsoft.
please please read this
by Katie2001 on 2019/02/15 01:20
okay so i love the microsoft games and i especially like this one. it’s super fun and it keeps me entertained for hours! this next thing doesn’t pertain to this game, but i would love it if you guys could add microsoft mahjong to the app store. i’ve seen other people suggest this too and it would be really great if you could. other microsoft computer games would also be fun if you added. thank you for reading! ♥️ ps for anyone saying they don’t like the ads, download an ADBLOCKER!! they are FREE on the appstore. ty :)
Classic Solitaire Fun!
by Pelean on 2017/12/19 15:55
I love this collection of MS solitaire games. The games aren't flashy or gimmicky, but have a simple and classic design. I'm a long-time Windows user, but I play the games much more often on my iPhone than I ever have on any PC. The daily challenges are great, as well as the competitions. I don't have an XBox, no comment on the integration there. My only complaint is that the cards on the iPad (at least for daily challenges) have a slightly different design. It is distracting to me, so I only play on my iPhone now.
New animations cannot be disabled
by Umpelty on 2019/02/16 13:13
Microsoft Solitaire Collection has been my go-to "I want something to occupy my eyes and fingers" iOS game for years, now - according to the statistics screen, I've played in excess of sixteen thousand games of Klondike just since I got my phone repaired. With the new leveling-system update, the game has added unskippable animations to the end-of-game score-and-levelup dialog box (which, according to the statistics screen, I see every minute and a half in Klondike). I have game end animations disabled, I have background animations disabled, I have the Reduce Motion setting turned on in iOS settings itself, and this zooming animation plays anyway. I cannot play this game without disabling this animation. Which means I cannot play this game.
Are you kidding? Let solitaire be solitaire.
by ZzxYyz55345 on 2019/02/15 18:43
All of a sudden Microsoft solitaire says “New Content- do you want to download”. I say “remind me later”, because I don’t want their new version which is return-to-baby-level-so-we-can-force-you-to-jump-thru-our-hoops. BUT ITS ALREADY LOADED. No thanks. I don’t want to play only simple and guaranteed solvable games for the next three months or whatever. I don’t want experience points. I don’t want to buy whatever it is you are monetizing. I DO want to play the way I was playing. I’m off to get a plain old app that just presents a solitaire game. I already uninstalled Wordament after they made that experience points based too. Now solitaire has to get the same fate.
Constantly freezes
by justagirl513 on 2018/08/20 17:34
I wouldn’t even give it the one star if I had the option to not do so. Kept hassling me about setting up an account for blah blah blah reasons. Finally set up the account and it’s been nothing but issues since. Freezing up and not responding. Lagging and taking minutes to move the cards where they go. Enjoyed the app greatly before setting up the account. But honestly it’s to the point I’m gonna uninstall it. I don’t wish to be harassed about an account that has been nothing but a hassle just to play solitaire. Guess I’ll be giving another app a try because this one isn’t worth the level of harassment I’d have to endure to play without logging into an account.
Fun when it is working.
by oldpacker on 2017/07/12 00:28
June 18 regular game has caused my app to go into a repeating LOADING cycle. I tried reloading but no go. Is anyone else having this problem and what's the solution? I have a solution, DELETE the App and go to the App Store and find it in purchased apps. Tap the app to download it. When it has finished loading open it and after it's up sign in and tell it yes. After you are signed in pick a game and all your games and awards will be reinstated. Good luck.
HotMomma70
by hotMomma70 on 2019/02/01 17:22
I am very disappointed that I have to purchase the Premium level so that I can play on my iPad when I have already purchased that level for my Windows computer at home. The program recognizes all the "badges" and "awards" that I have attained, but for some reason cannot see that I have already paid for the Premium level. What a rip!!! And, here we are, a year later. I have paid my subscription fee for the Premium level again...and, yet, again i am having to look at ads on my iPad. Are you trying to discriminate against Apple users or do you think it is your duty to collect a fee for each platform??? This will be my last subscription!
Fun, but premium doesn't transfer
by Tippwill on 2017/09/09 18:09
I love playing the challenges and it's convenient to play on my phone. I've been playing this suite of games for a long time on my computer so I bought the premium there. I was excited to see it available for iPhone, but disappointed that premium doesn't transfer across platforms. If I don't play on my phone then I won't play all the challenges for the month. I'm looking forward to the rest of the features becoming available on iPhone.
Solitaire Lovers Dream
by Bizzybeesc on 2017/09/04 20:22
Thrilled to find this iPad compatible app today. I haven't played this game since switching to Apple devices. The daily challenges are my favorite . There are five different solitaire games each day with varying levels of difficulty. So enjoyable! Wrote my first review Aug 28. Today is Sept 4 and I have had nothing but issues with this app. Daily challenges won't load, app closes out among other problems. I cannot recommend this app after all.
Love the games
by ruthcook3 on 2017/08/02 15:03
I love the daily challenges but am finding them much less fun with the new format. Is there a way to get back to the older version? Sounds like a lot of others agree. Game developers listened and gave players format options. Now I have no complaints and this game is the first thing I do in the morning with my cup of cappuccino. It is a great brain challenger and I feel that any game that forces me to use my brain and and keep me thinking is a good thing!
Awesome app...and addictive
by Steve from the Ranch on 2017/06/15 01:12
First - buy the app and you won't have to put up with ads. It's a one-year purchase. The challenges are fun to play every day, and my wife - who also bought the app - and I challenge each other on how well we do each month. I'm hoping that Microsoft opens up the "coming soon" features soon, as they've been that way for six months. Still, this well designed app keeps me engaged each and every day.
Please give traditional cardface option for iPad
by Homschlrmom on 2017/12/20 02:22
I really love this game. Once I almost deleted, then found the daily challenges. I had never payed anything but three-draw solitaire. Tried the other games, enjoy free cell and spider the most now. When I run my phone battery down, I would like to use the iPad version, but I cannot handle the different card faces. The business and difference make it too hard for me to sort out. I like familiarity. Can’t choosing different decks be an option?
This Solitaire Collection Rocks
by chers4ever1 on 2018/05/07 11:42
Nothing except pure fun for me. My only complaint is that I can’t go back to the days each month to finish all of the daily challenges. I dislike the fact that once a month is over there’s no way to go back and finish the days I missed for prior months. Other than that very solid and enjoyable games. I hope that one day you can make it possible to finish challenges in prior months. xoxoxo
20-30 second commercials are excruciating
by ls643 on 2017/05/03 18:16
Agree 100% with the other reviews that mention the ads being out of control. Not only are they incredibly long, but they happen between every 3-4 games (or every time you start a new game after opening the app). In addition to that, the ads don't load the close screen correctly most of the time so you have to close the app and reopen it...which results in having to watch another ad... I played every single day when this first came out, but now I don't play at all and only keep it on my phone in hopes that all the complaints will result in them doing something about the ads.
New update = commercials
by Boeckelr on 2018/09/23 02:13
I downloaded this last week and it was great. Today I tried to use it and there were all sorts of long commercials that you have to watch before you can play and between games. What’s so odious about it is that Microsoft wants people to pay a monthly fee to get rid of the commercials. This is solitaire, not Fortnite. Who is going to pay a few dollars a month to play solitaire? Not me. All of these monthly service fees add up. I’m also not going to pay $10 a year, which is what Microsoft wants. Once again, this is solitaire. They gave it away for free back in the late 80s or early 90s in windows 3 and 3.1 if I remember correctly. What kind of innovations do they feel warrant a $2/month fee or a $10/year flat fee? It’s a joke, which is why I erased it on all of my devices this morning when I saw the commercials. Commercials like this are for apps like wood puzzle which are made by small developers....not the corporation with the third highest market cap. Microsoft should be ashamed of this.
Premium Pyramid Play - Using Same Card Arrangements
by Batman Lives in Minneapolis on 2019/02/16 02:07
I have the premium version of this game. Last night I was playing the regular Pyramid without any specific challenge. After playing for an hour I began to notice the new deals were arrangements I had already played. The arrangements might group with other arrangements during one play; but I am constantly going over the same moves as I did before. I’ve come across this issue with free solitaire apps... but I paid for the premium so I wouldn’t encounter “do-overs”. I play solitaire to relax - now I am annoyed.
My current addiction
by Mark31415926 on 2018/12/03 03:38
I like that you can get a deal that’s guaranteed to be solvable. I succeed 20% of the time, but I suspect I should be able to do better. The hints are sometimes poor and I’d like the option not to to remove a complete suit: it can be useful for temporary exchanges. Also, I wish the bottom panel wouldn’t come up so often or the latest news come down from the top. I’m very clumsy with grabbing cards: often I have to try twice just to do it, for no obvious reason.
Klondike Solitaire from Microsoft
by KMA review on 2018/06/25 21:01
This game is one of only a few games that doesn’t end each game with those annoying popup ads to entice you to try a new game. It’s easy to play but, it’s still challenging enough that you don’t get bored. I can spend more time relaxing and playing solitaire without wasting my time closing out the ads. Best of all is it’s a free app... **Also there are 4 different solitaire game included in this app....
New update has screwed up your app
by 194922 on 2019/02/20 22:41
Your app update just messed up a good game. There was nothing wrong with the app the way it was and now you have to start from scratch. Every time I start to play, I get a screen message telling me that there is new content available. I have downloaded it 4 times, it tells me it was downloaded and it keeps telling me that new content is available. I’m tired of the message and the new update. Guess it’s time to find a new app. Have a great day Microsoft, you just lost a long time player.
5 stars for Star Club
by Christine I. on 2017/10/16 18:44
I’m only giving this four out of five because I’m becoming bored with the game. I completed all of the challenges plus all of the goals for the five different games. I have been waiting and waiting, and waiting, for star club. Seems like a carrot is being dangled in front of our nose, in as much as it will never ever come out. Perhaps when it does I shall give the game five stars. That is my carrot to the developers.
SFB
by SFBANAK on 2019/04/29 01:45
I’d like to see the option for easy, then the levels of increasing difficulty be available for Tri Peaks & Pyramid. I don’t understand why they don’t have that option while the other 3 games do. Also - I think it is unfair of you to have game boards that cannot be solved. On Pyramid & Tri-Peaks, there is no choice but to have random games. Please change this! I play to have fun & to challenge myself to a degree. Messing with unsolvable puzzles is a total waste of my time. I DO have many other things I HAVE to do in life! Those things cause stress in my life; I don’t need more here where I try to de-stress. Thank you
Really Nice! Don’t change a thing!
by Sidthecow on 2019/03/05 01:49
I love that this app is unique and different. It has multiple different game modes. You can choose between different game types. I like be xp points. It even syncs with the cloud to sync across multiple devices. You can also sign in with Xbox live. You can change your themes and card type! And Unlock Achievements! I would have to say this app is perfect, please keep it the same
