Looooooong video ads
by BusyD01 on 2021/03/01 00:48
When I first started playing these game, there were NO ads. Yet, the developers survived. As of late, there are looooooong video ads that often freeze and you cannot get out of unless you close the game. Fun games, but because of the loooooong ads, you lost two stars. Debating whether to just delete it all together. Well your Project Makeover advertisement, which is DISGUSTING was the last straw. Choose wisely! Bye!
Won’t Open!

I can’t get any support for this app I pay for.... it keeps crashing! It won’t even open.

So I have been playing this game for long time now all the sudden. I can’t sign in and keeps telling me no internet connection. When I am connected
keeps losing progress
by rabbit1029 on 2021/02/26 03:58
It keeps losing progress around level nine. The "log in" function doesn't actually save anything. but it's solitaire, so I guess the progress doesn't really give anything? This is the seventh time the app crashed and lost progress. I keep trying to see if what level 10 does, but the app never made it that though.
Ridiculous Ads
by JohnSachs40 on 2021/02/25 18:52
I’m not a fan of writing this review. I very much enjoyed this app, but not as much as I hated the ads. The option to close the ad after waiting the allotted time will just start a new ad. Don’t you guys get enough revenue from the info farming? Anyway that’s why I’m deleting this app right now. I wouldn’t recommend this experience to anyone. Don’t be like me, have the sense to just not download this in the first place.
So good!
by Lottie G. on 2021/02/25 17:14
I got this game because I wanted to have a variety of solitaires to play, but I couldn’t find an app that had more than just one. I trust Microsoft as a good company to get apps from, because I know that there are no bugs or viruses in their software. Solitaire is one of my favorite games to play when bored, and the beautiful graphics and design make it that much more fun! A must have!
Solitaire
by loupou1943 on 2021/02/25 17:11
This is one game where I can play, and enjoy. I have tried many other Solitaire games, and I have found Microsoft to be the best one. I really enjoy the ending especially the first one where the cards come down, and I like that one is the best.
Great, only one problem
by andreia cs on 2021/02/25 02:08
I think this app is great. Really good game play and graphics. I just really hate that I cannot play my music in app. If I swipe down to press play, as soon as I swipe back up, my music stops playing. Really annoying, can anyone fix this?
Great for the brain 🧠
by averyjgunter on 2021/02/24 19:23
This app helps me with organizing strategies and relaxes my mind when I have nothing to do.
Event
by 31yesdniL on 2021/02/23 16:37
My Event section says I need internet connection. I have internet connection and unlimited data, but I haven’t been able to play the events for a few days now. Also, I tried going through the “support” option, and there’s no way I could post there.
WOW
by Foxie Lee on 2021/02/23 03:34
I usually do not like paying a subscription for any game. However this one is an exception as this has to be one of the best games to play. The cost of $9.99 a year is well worth the cost. I play every day and the graphics are really nice as is the game play. A big thanks to Microsoft for making a nice card game.
Play to relax

Ads
by Zonieal on 2021/02/22 04:18
The ads have gotten out of hand. I’m tired of waiting for some silly childish ad to finish.
Nice,except
by Salllybbbbbbbbb on 2021/02/22 02:31
Nice that it has multiple games but I don’t like that it will automatically move the cards in Free Cell to the foundation spots. I wish there was an option that I could set Not to move automatically so that I could do it by myself.
Garbage Ads
by awh58 on 2021/02/21 22:45
Attention Microsoft advertisers I do not buy from ads. I take note of who advertises and I make sure I do NOT buy their products I buy from those who do not advertise. The software is buggy due to the ads requiring multiple reinstalls of the software. I have stated the problems in other post typical of Microsoft’s poor customer service there has been no response nor has the issues been addressed
Crashes after every game
by JaclynP💜 on 2021/02/20 19:01
I have the most recent update but yet it never fails after every round I play the game crashes. And even thought I am on WiFi it tells me there is no internet connection.
Excellent

Such fun. Love it !!
Broken at times
by Kindbro on 2021/02/19 23:07
Decent app, but the help AI is honestly terrible at solitaire, and will more frequently softlock you rather than help you. The subscription model is also ridiculous for a card game. $2 a month? An actual deck of cards is just $4!
Locks up my iPad
by Asaldecki on 2021/02/15 18:15
When playing the events game it constantly locks up my iPad and adds time to my score. Wish you guys were smart enough to fix that. Still locks up my iPad when playing Events game. When it does this it adds time to my game while it is locked. Will cancel my subscription until this is fixed.
Just One Little Thing
by ianburrito on 2021/02/15 01:14
This game is great, I have it on my computer too. But for iPad (and also, maybe for iPhone), when ever you play multiple boards (but not in Random Mode) of Pyramid or TriPeaks, if you solve 1 or 2 of the boards, but lose the other one[s] it does not give you experience points for the boards that you do not win. This happened to me when I got it on my iPad, so I stick with 1 board. And could you also make Level 81 easier to pass? I am on that on Spider and it takes ages.

Horrible Reliability
by Mrdrmagoo on 2021/02/14 05:14
This game plays ok on a Windows pc. On iPad static ads lock up every time I try to play. Sometimes there is a nonfunctional close button, most times no way to exit ad. There does not appear to be a time limit on static ads, I have walked away, returned 10 minutes later to same result. Only thing my cynical mind can conclude is that is Microsoft's way to force you to ad free paid version
Bad ads
by fred.nerk on 2021/02/13 21:17
The adds have become truly obnoxious and behave badly. Often clicking x to close takes you to the App Store instead of closing.
Another game that ads don't work
by dingbat885 on 2021/02/13 17:00
Another game that has ads you can't close. Don't you check these things? I understand why there are ads, that's no problem for me. What is a problem is when the ad will not close and you can not continue to play.
It’s an ad that lets you play a game or two in between
by XYZ70 on 2021/02/13 12:18
You start the game and there an ad. You play a game then there a two ads. And the ad will last like 30 seconds each time. When while waiting for the next game to load they show you ads. Ugh. And now it wants to share your info. Time to delete!!!!
Great, but.....
by nosmohtac on 2021/02/13 03:50
I love solitaire and this is a good game and wide selection of puzzles, but the ads are ridiculous. I've never seen so many 30 second ads for such short game play. Pure greed!

Freezes
by BRT929 on 2021/02/11 05:00
If you participate in the daily competitors, the entire game freezes and loses your score. You have to play the game over and then it add your times from the first time to the second.
Excellent, with minimum ads
by Theodore Israel on 2021/02/11 00:03
So glad the ads aren’t invasive, like other solitaire apps on the app store. That was very important to me. And best of all, when you win, the cards jump like they do on Windows. So happy
Fix the event timeout issue
by yydd on 2021/02/09 15:53
Sometimes when I play events and complete a level, the game is unable to save my results. When this happens, I have to quit the app and restart, but the event timer keeps running and destroys my time. Sometimes when I switch from WiFi to cellular data this fixes the issue and I can save, but this is rare. If you can’t fix the issue, at least make the timer stop when you complete the stage instead of saving after the “completed” screen that may or may not load. This issue has been around for some time and I’ve had enough. Maybe I will restore my paid subscription when this issue is fixed.

Timer glitched
by mmmaggimmmae on 2021/02/05 23:12
Need to fix timer in events. Timer doesn’t stop at game finish, constantly adds time while system is acknowledging that it has an issue. A problem that never occurs when I’m doing daily challenges or just playing. Why when the amount of time is crucial for ranking won’t the timer stop. Sometimes I even have to close the app and replay the level while the timer is still running, usually after watching an ad. Today I didn’t even start the level because I needed to get off game for a bit & when I finished next level at least 30 minutes was added to my time. Please fix this as it ruins my enjoyment of the events which is my favorite part of your app. TIMER SHOULD STOP WHEN THE CHALLENGE IS ACHIEVED!
Themes broke in recent updates.
by peterpanning on 2021/02/05 20:42
This is a fantastic app. I’ve been a loyal user for years, playing thousands of hours as I listened to audiobooks in bed each night. Recent updates however have made me dread opening the app. I use a custom theme, amoled black background with the default cards. For some reason now, themes are lost every time I close the app and have to be downloaded again. It’s annoying to have to click through the “new content” dialogs, download that updated content, enter themes, download the themes, and the pick the one I like to use, every single time I want to play. It use to work flawlessly. Now I’m in search of another solitaire app.

Not good
by mathiasedwardsjones on 2021/02/04 15:46
Played two games Klondike with grandmaster difficulty. Something Didn't seem right so I played another one- except this time i only played the moves that the hints offered. Om that game I “technically” didn’t have any moves left. But the only move the game could make was to keep moving a 3 of diamonds back and forth 🤦🏻‍♂️.
Flat
by BestAppsUser on 2021/02/04 13:04
Disappointed; usually a MicroSoft fan. Too thin client looking. Flat unappealing look. Take a look at Mobility Ware for inspiration.
Fun but has issues
by illreviewthat on 2021/02/04 01:09
I’ve been enjoying playing the game but events really need some work. It’s really frustrating playing through an event level only to have to completely restart because the app can’t connect to the server (at least I’m guessing that’s the issue). You’ll get stuck with a spinning loading screen that offers you to cancel but of course you lose that play through and have to start again. Please fix this!
Favorite Solitaire App
by Jayline87 on 2021/02/03 04:37
I’ve tried multiple solitaire apps and this one is the best. I love the 5 different types of solitaire so that you have some variety. My favorite part of the app is the daily challenges they have (5 per day) and there are other challenges like the daily events. There’s a good range in difficulty so you can be challenged (expert/master) or just play for fun (easy). They’ve definitely figured out how to get people hooked on their app with all their challenges, badges and awards! My only problem with the app is that there is often a glitch in the daily events. You are timed on how long it takes you to complete all events and ranked based on your time. However sometimes the game times out and you have to do the puzzle over and sometimes it will count time you are not playing (for example, I did half the challenges, came back and it added the 5 1/2 hours break to my time). It’s not the biggest deal but if you’re being ranked based on your time it would be nice if the time was accurate. It would also be nice to be able to pause while you’re playing.
Many Thanks,
by MaroDaro on 2021/02/02 00:04
Just want to say thank you to the managers/developers of MS Solitaire for giving us all these daily games and challenges through this Pandemic. It has definitely helped to keep me sane and I play so much that I have definitely improved. THANK YOU so much.🤪😁✌🏼❤️
Please Help Fix this Glitch
by CoffeeJunkie33 on 2021/01/31 15:41
For the past month it will not connect to the internet and constantly crashes. I have tried to uninstall and reinstall, play on a different device and even restarted my phone. Nothing is helping! Your FAQ section does and says nothing about this. It’s not giving me an error code either. Playing on an iPhone 11 and Galaxy s10

Let me play audio apps!!!
by dowiewowie on 2021/01/28 21:55
I love this game, have the subscription version, and am Level 105 in Spider. I use this app most days and have spent hours playing. But the most recent update prevents me from listening to music or audiobooks in other apps! Why??? I’m not going to play like I love to if I can’t listen to my other apps! Please change this back!
Could be a 5 star app, easily. Except ads...
by buckrussell on 2021/01/27 18:54
what should be a no brainer app for m$ and they still manage to screw it up. want to play a quick game of solitaire? first sit through this ad. pathetic m$. i get it, you care only about money. there are ways to do ads that aren’t obnoxious and annoying. the next time i launch the game and have to watch an ad before i can even play a game will be the last time i launch this app.
Used to free then the ads started!
by Msekg on 2021/01/26 19:34
I refuse to play a game when Microsoft offered this for free. The ads don’t really bother me BUT now I can’t get into the game because of an ad that comes up when I want to start a new game! Removing came from my phone.
Not worth it
by Yarmo Zone. on 2021/01/25 00:34
Ads are very deceptive. They make it hard to close if you dont know the tricks. Instead of an X they sometimes have a C in the corner for close. The ads like fishdom are not representative of the actual games they purport to be. The monthly cost to remove ads is way too high. If you dont mind that, the game plays well.
Like to play this when I have time.
by Selyr on 2021/01/24 20:52
Love that you can get harder levels as you progress.
Card movement is very slow on this app
by LucyB52 on 2021/01/24 16:37
The app needs improvement to increase speed when moving cards and once solve it should automatically move cards into final positions. It takes 4 seconds for all cards shuffle into final four positions. Formula 1 pit crew can change 4 tires quicker than this app solves to final positions. This app takes me 15-30 seconds longer to complete game.

Inappropriate Ads, Had to Delete
by Jeanchile on 2021/01/21 04:07
Hey windows. I don’t need any of that stupid weight-loss bull crap your app is now selling, nor ANYTHING ELSE for that matter. After a recent update the ads have gotten ridiculous and I’m not paying for solitaire to get rid of them. I thought this would be a game suitable for children AND IT IS NOT. Deleted this piece of crap.
Times out when playing events
by INCEPTR on 2021/01/21 02:31
My network connections is normal, however after completing an event challenge it does not change to the next event but only shows the spinning loading wheel. If cancel is pressed that game progress is lost; also a “we apologize” message is displayed; hey incompetent app dev’s stop apologizing and fix the issue. I played this game using a PS and with the same internet network connection and it does not lock up between events. It is an app issue!
Junk
by Clouseau111 on 2021/01/21 02:00
I’m not sure how many times I’ve completed a game and then the screen says “loading” It never resolves and the only way to move on is to cancel. Your app is crap.
Premium doesn’t work?
by joseph5 on 2021/01/20 00:24
I loved this app. I’ve had a premium subscription for years. Suddenly it no longer works, ads everywhere. Contacted MS support and they were super rude and disconnected me from chat. No idea who to contact now. Not happy and MS has another $10 that I’m not getting back.

Ridiculous ads
by screamer43987543 on 2021/01/19 18:19
This used to be my favorite app but recently they have added the most obnoxious ads that start playing noisily after a few games. The price to purchase the app is $10.00 per year. You have got to be joking!!! Deleting this app.

by Graphiic Frenzy on 2021/01/18 21:14
I love solitaire and I've been playing these card games since I was young. Being able to sign into my xbox account and earn achievements is a nice touch too. However I've been trying for multiple months now to complete the Marathon achievement (which is to complete at least one daily challenge a day, for a month) and I've been doing this for the entire month of January (2021) until the 16th. My game apparently experienced a bug that would crash after completing a daily challenge, and (unknown to me until today) it wasn't syncing to my xbox account. I decided to uninstall the app and reinstall it, which fixed the bug. Then I noticed that three days worth of daily challenges haven't been logged. Meaning now I must wait until February to attempt the achievement again. These little bugs occur far too often and mess with progress when you delete and reinstall the app the fix said bugs. Really frustrating when paired with this type of "waiting game" achievement. Playing for fun: great, highly recommend. Trying to 100% a game I've had for a few years: not as high of a recommendation.

Losing progress
by MicheleaNoel on 2021/01/18 18:38
Every time I do the daily challenges there is at least one that has trouble saving and I have to redo because there’s a bug that causes it to sit on the saving/loading screen and won’t do anything no matter how long I let it sit there. I have to close out the app and redo the challenge.
Too many ads
by Easy2021 on 2021/01/18 12:05
There are paid for ads and unpaid for ads. The later are there just to waste your time so that you’ll pay money to make them go away. Those last 30s and cannot be dismissed, considering the number of players, each ad costs the planet about 5K hours.
I love playing it.

Server issues and you need more games in the daily events
by carmccor on 2021/01/15 16:09
It is really irritating to have completed a complicated game and have to play it again due to server access issues and a restart to clear it-then insult upon injury- time for that game includes the first game and second played when you finish it successfully twice. It seems to me that you could have more than 5 games a day in the events, ten or better fifteen would be great. Other than the above the app is great.

I love this game and the daily challenge, but...
by Amanda Jo 1984 on 2021/01/14 22:47
Never fails, almost every other day (some times several days in a row), I finish a challenge in the daily event and I don’t know if it’s because of the ads constantly trying to load and/or refresh or if there’s a server issue, but the connection somehow gets lost. I sit and wait while the thing twirls but nothing happens even though I am on wifi and have full bars. So, I wait, then get annoyed, close out app and come back. Then I have to repeat level again. Okay, fine.. whatever. But to make matters worse, when I finally complete it the second time, I am given a grand total time of the first round plus the second and the timeframe it sat there twirling all because of your software issues... messes up my time on the daily event and it’s frustrating! I want to get a good time to hopefully be in the top 10 but it is a rarity since your app isn’t functioning properly. Please fix this! I am not sure if it’s the ads messing it up or what but if so, I shouldn’t have to pay for no ads to get your app to work as it should. Smh...
Used to be a great app
by Bizzibizzibizza on 2021/01/12 17:37
The ads before EVERY game have ruined this app. I’ve played this app for several years, but the addition of the obnoxious ads mean I’m deleting it. Not paying a subscription fee to play. Greed ruins everything.
Buggy connection
by Emperorwilson on 2021/01/12 02:03
I love this app, but almost on a daily basis, I’ll be in the middle of a challenge and the app will fail to update results to the server making me lose progress as well as getting a major time penalty. Is this why nobody uses Azure?
I usually write a review, but I'm frustrated.
by ayurux on 2021/01/11 22:19
I usually never write a bad review, but microsoft solitare, which can be fun most times, can get very frustrating when playing events when you're racing against other players. Sometimes after I clear a stage, the screen to continue will hang and you'll see the dot circle of death. This always means that the game can't save your progress and whatever time you spent waiting for that circle thing to finish loading will be added to your clear time for that stage. It's frustrating because it happens to me most often than not. There should be safeguards built in for this kind of stuff, especially when it's not the player's fault that the solitare's server is slow and/or needs a refresh. Please fix this bug.

New Ads Killed It!
by PrinceCorey on 2021/01/11 15:29
Have enjoyed this app for many years but the new ad routine is too intrusive. I’m done. Deleting the app.
No new iPad support for years
by Acdop100 on 2021/01/10 14:28
As a fan of this app, I am extremely disappointed that after years of use a simple UI update to take advantage of the full iPad screen has not arrived yet. We still get plenty of “updates” but none that bring meaningful changes or updates. I would rate this 5 stars if you simply updated the interface to fully use the iPad screen space.
Too many ads
by James6257 on 2021/01/09 20:34
Used to be fun. I would play it all the time. But now it’s become an ad filled mess.
Went from great to less than OK
by KP_MN on 2021/01/09 15:30
This used to be my favorite way to relax a bit. Now with the new ad format I’m close to removing it from my phone. When I can’t exit the ads and have to click to install before I can even get back to the game it’s infuriating!
Review Microsoft Solitaire
by ex customer 2021 on 2021/01/09 09:04
I got the app a few days ago and played it about 10 times with no problems. Then it locked up and is displaying the directions option. I try to dismiss it and it’s locked up and won’t let me remove it. I try to push NEXT and still nothing happens it’s locked up. 😡😡😡
Great app for FreeCell
by Thisisbinod on 2021/01/08 17:18
Loved the quality of the app.
Ok
by gorgon234 on 2021/01/06 12:27
Great game
Please, fix the problem with the iPad Pro 11” screen.
by Krymov on 2021/01/05 20:11
I love this game, I play solitaire almost every evening. One thing that annoys me every time I launch the game is the black border around it. Please adjust the game to fit the iPad Pro 11 ”screen. Thanks.
Good card games
by JDT1982 on 2021/01/05 17:44
This would be a 5 star review but the odds are a little much. Especially those 15 to 20 second ones. But then again, it is a "free" app.
Perfect have to unwind
by KPPhoenix on 2021/01/05 05:42
This game allows me to relax when I am stressed.
Love the daily challenge
by Lilnesie on 2021/01/05 03:06
There’s not a day goes by that I don’t challenge my aging brain with these games. They are the perfect medicine for me.
Ban cheaters
by Lostinapp on 2021/01/04 20:05
I would rate this game higher if you could ban cheaters like GRMXTREM, see todays challenge and note that of 871 challenges this person/bot has placed first 439 times. They have also placed first more times than second or third. I am sorry that this happens but it ruins the experience for those of us that play fairly.
Fun Game but.....can’t turn off the sound

Where did they go? These with noise & crap is not necessary!
Games are fine-ad interruptions are menacing
by The OTHER Early Music Fan on 2021/01/03 05:04
Love the games when they finally run. MS has been pushing frequent disruptive ads with menacing frequency; all designed to pressure us into purchasing “premium services.” A few games into a session, the ads start. Some with blasting soundtracks. I can no longer recommend this app.
Solitaire
by Sutanrii Shiro on 2021/01/02 19:16
This is what keeps a Seniors mind sharp. Since I finally got my Wife on board, we play each solitaire game everyday!!! Thank you.
Broken on Jan 1-2021
by Mightymike2345 on 2021/01/02 17:55
On Jan 1,2021 the iPhone version doesn’t load the games anymore. There is also an issue with screen time and it think I reached my screen limit with the app before I had used it for the day
These ads and the price
by donald duck girl on 2020/08/28 14:01
As of today, Aug 28, 2020 no answer from you. There’s another problem and if I get no reply I will uninstall it. My old IPad stop charging, I had already backed up everything. My new IPad all my game levels was transferred to the new IPad except your. My old IPad I was on level 87, my new IPad was at level 1. I don’t use Xbox at all and I’ve tried to contact you, and got message I had to sign in to Xbox live, no thank you. Everyone doesn’t always fall for a company being greedy. I'm about to uninstall this game, I love card games this one we was at an office appointment I pulled out my IPad to play got message that I could not play no internet, What? At first could not figure out why, my other card games I can play with no internet. Then it hit me, these ads they have on here and the price they want is crazy. I'm not buying anymore apps at this time. There one card game we bought to remove ads spite card game, I'm still dealing with ads and we paid for it, before we can get to next level we still have to watch an ad, for a game we paid for. I've also notice these crazy prices like this game where you can pay every year no way. Also we have paid then four months, six months down the road guess what no more updates and when Apple update there system that app does not work anymore, we are tried of being rip off. Apple needs to do something to quite letting these apps rip people off.
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.
Great gameplay, buggy infrastructure
by Janunson on 2020/07/11 17:12
This is the best gameplay, most attractive and satisfying graphics and interaction of any solitaire game out there by far. That’s why I keep playing it. I just wish the Microsoft underneath didn’t cause so much suckage. The game is obsessed with your internet connection, even though it really shouldn’t need it to play a card game!! It takes forever uploading and downloading... nothing, before you can play it, and after each game, and if your connection has changed, like from WiFi to cell, or to a different WiFi, it doesn’t cache the data and try on the new connection - no, it freaks out and won’t save your score and won’t let you continue playing. It also downloads some unnamed “new content’ constantly, then forgets it the next time you open the app, and downloads it again! And the themes- apparently what it’s supposed to have downloaded (you get to dismiss two messages every time it tries!!) are still screwed up every time you play, and when you fix them (which usually only lasts 1 session) it wants to download then yet again! Wow. So after writing all this down it’s clear I need to play a less visually slick solitaire game that isn’t so annoying. Again, the gameplay is the best, but the annoying bugs ruin it.
Solitaire time out
by JoeinAK on 2020/12/29 17:11
Love playing solitaire only problem I have is with the timed games. I can’t tell you how many times that the service can’t connect after I finish a game. It’ll take an extra minute or two and this extra time becomes part of your total time. Example you finish a game in say 2 minutes and it takes 2 minutes to finally connect so your total time is 4 minutes so this is totally not fair. Apparently Microsoft’s developers haven’t figured out how to eliminated this extra time due to there servers being overwhelmed by users. Sometimes after waiting for more than 5 minutes I quit out of the game and become frustrated so then give up playing for a while and go about my day. I then return later in the day and when I finish the game I had quit out of discover that even though I haven’t been using the app my total time ends up being the 2 or 3 hours I was doing other things. I even had it be over 8 hours for a game. I’m using an IPad an obvious competitor to the Microsoft surface tablet, funny bet those connect all the time. Otherwise I give them a 5 star review. I’m imagining that their developers will never read this but oh well.
Favorite Solitaire App
by Jayline87 on 2021/02/03 04:37
I’ve tried multiple solitaire apps and this one is the best. I love the 5 different types of solitaire so that you have some variety. My favorite part of the app is the daily challenges they have (5 per day) and there are other challenges like the daily events. There’s a good range in difficulty so you can be challenged (expert/master) or just play for fun (easy). They’ve definitely figured out how to get people hooked on their app with all their challenges, badges and awards! My only problem with the app is that there is often a glitch in the daily events. You are timed on how long it takes you to complete all events and ranked based on your time. However sometimes the game times out and you have to do the puzzle over and sometimes it will count time you are not playing (for example, I did half the challenges, came back and it added the 5 1/2 hours break to my time). It’s not the biggest deal but if you’re being ranked based on your time it would be nice if the time was accurate. It would also be nice to be able to pause while you’re playing.
Game memory
by ralexie2 on 2020/09/15 15:20
I love this application with the exception that when finishing a challenge, if you are disconnected from internet, the only way you can get back to the game is by closing the application and starting the challenge once again. You will be in a loop hole if playing the same game you finished but the sad story is that the challenge is timed and the clock does not stop till you finally get your score and can move on to the next challenge. Even after you close the application, the clock continues. Developers should develop a memory bank where the application can acknowledge it disconnected, save your progress and stop the clock. This is critical because every challenge is timed! It is weird that you never find out when it disconnects till you finish the challenge and are waiting for the score to appear so you can move on. Other than this, this application is the best I have ever played. Wish someone could look into making a patch to fix this. I don’t know if it just happens to me because I am using an iPad or it happens to any one on any other platform.
I love this game and the daily challenge, but...
by Amanda Jo 1984 on 2021/01/14 22:47
Never fails, almost every other day (some times several days in a row), I finish a challenge in the daily event and I don’t know if it’s because of the ads constantly trying to load and/or refresh or if there’s a server issue, but the connection somehow gets lost. I sit and wait while the thing twirls but nothing happens even though I am on wifi and have full bars. So, I wait, then get annoyed, close out app and come back. Then I have to repeat level again. Okay, fine.. whatever. But to make matters worse, when I finally complete it the second time, I am given a grand total time of the first round plus the second and the timeframe it sat there twirling all because of your software issues... messes up my time on the daily event and it’s frustrating! I want to get a good time to hopefully be in the top 10 but it is a rarity since your app isn’t functioning properly. Please fix this! I am not sure if it’s the ads messing it up or what but if so, I shouldn’t have to pay for no ads to get your app to work as it should. Smh...
I have finally decided...
by 1stCeye on 2020/09/11 23:43
....the best way to play FREE CELL. ***Now understand that 2 months ago, free cell terrorized me! I would look at the board and freeze! There was just no way to organize that board. Put a card up in the cages and you lost the number of other cards you could move. I’d shake my head and find a Spider game. ( Now, I’m looking at 2 deck SPIDER Like I used to look at FREE CELL!...but I AM LOOKING....) I took the challenge one day...it took all the hints, and an hour, but I ALMOST got it. I was hooked! Easy game after easy game, I slowly saw strategies....ways around.... ***I still only play easy games (I actually won one medium game!), but I’m winning more....today, I decided in order to actually WIN; you line up LOGIC on one side of your brain....INTUITION on the other side; then. Take both hands (metaphorically) and SLAM THEM TOGETHER! Now, you are in the correct brain lane to win! (Sigh) ***MICROSOFT....PLEASE look into your HINTS helper. It has a frustratingly habit of REPEATING THE SAME HINT...BACK AND FORTH...I cannot learn that way....PLEASE!*** ***I will happily accept hints from players.....small cats, large dogs, a ferret, no porcupines, please! More later.... ***LATER.....great idea.....MICROSOFT, PLease consider creating a GIN RUMMY SET of games. It would be fantastic with the way you set up REAL games. There are no reasonable Gin games out here.....
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.
Tournament Timekeeping
by Annavon on 2020/07/03 03:44
I wish there was a way to track the play time correctly. Sometimes during a tournament, I have to stop playing. When I return and replay the game, it counts the time that I was out of the app against my total time. For example, I played a game for 2 minutes, but I get a phone call and EXIT the game and the app completely, I come back 2 hours later and replay the game finish in 2 minutes and 40 seconds. My total time should be 4:40, but it shows as 2:04:40. Today, I was playing during my lunch break. I went back to work and went home and took a nap. I finished the last game of the tournament in around 4 minutes. My total time should have been around 35 minutes. However, it showed more than 7 hours!!! It should only show the time actually playing, not time when we are not in the game at all. One more thing, it would be nice if there was a “pause “ button, so if you are interrupted, you can pause the game.
Review of Microsoft Solitaire
by broadleafrock on 2019/09/30 08:18
Microsoft Solitaire is very addictive but also very fun. I have been playing it for about three years. I try to find ways to solve the puzzles quicker so I can consistently be in the top 25. I believe some people must have two accounts so they can practice each puzzle on a trash account and score big on the second account. I like to improve my times but I wish there was a way to see how I compare with the group for each of the five games and even by difficulty level. Overall the games are great and I enjoy the challenges almost every day. I know you have to make some money along the way but the long commercials are boring to watch after the 20th or 30th time! Thanks for making the games so fun though.
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.
Classic Game with Flawed Mechanics
by fluffybunniesx on 2020/08/05 07:30
I love solitaire, and I’ve played this game on different platforms. I recently started playing it again and doing the events, but sometimes the connection to the server drops and I’m forced to cancel sending my completed challenge, and start over. The time that I’ve already logged on that challenge somehow gets saved but not my completion status? And to top it off even if you cancel sending the score, it counts all the time in between when you cancelled to when you try and complete it again. My latest challenge marked me down as taking 9 hours to complete when even the app hasn’t been open that long. I find the challenges to be some of the more interesting features this app has to offer so I’m disappointed that some of these flaws are here. Should be simple enough to locally store a variable that says the challenge was completed so that when there is server connectivity, the game can send the score.
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.
Greed has ruined this game.
by CaptRonSolo 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.
Consistently good, but...
by TeacherDRP on 2020/11/20 22:31
I have been playing for several years, and the developers seem to be trying to add new twists and make the game better. Bully for them. The free versions has ads which one should expect, but they seem to have upped the frequency and duration. As to the adds, I would love to have a relevance button since I am seventy-five and not likely to be Zynn (or Tik Tok) performer. That would, or should include an ad profile option to tailor ads to specific audiences, instead of using some algorithm. One other option I would love to see on the daily challenges (which I do, you guessed it, daily) is to have a “play through” button to allow one to finish the game even after having reached the required winning level.
Amazing but...
by Lagrima de Cristal on 2020/05/26 20:23
I am fascinated by this game, some challenges are really complicated, and I love that they make you think, the only but, is that although you have an excellent internet in your house, sometimes a half game Solitaire server, suffers from some interruption, this You can see it when after a game, it does not save that it is finished, and if you do not close it or practically disconnect, add all that disconnection time to the registry of your game, so if you finished a new one in 30 seconds, and you leave it like this Waiting for it to reconnect, it will appear that you were there all that time, that it can be 3, 5 or 12 hours, or until you resume it, and add it to your registration, that's why you lose positions.
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.
Like the game...timing for challenges is wrong and frustrating
by LuluSD on 2020/04/15 16:59
UPDATE: I just started the Pyramid Adventure challenge and decided to check my time after each game in the challenge. I just completed the first challenge without stopping at easy level within 3 minutes at most...I checked the time and it said 55 min 42 seconds. This is most discouraging & disappointing...especially as a premium player paying the annual subscription fee! PREVIOUS: Usually when you are interrupted in the middle of a game, you close it and pick up where you left off. This is also true of me solitaire, except that when doing a challenge...the timer still keeps going. For example, It may show I played for 8 hrs, when I only had an hour or minutes of actual playtime, so it affects my score. They need to stop the time when you have to interrupt a game and continue it once you open the game again.
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.
This is getting annoying
by Sharon Donahue on 2020/04/23 16:10
Once again I am forced to shut down the app after finishing a challenge and potentially having to replay it if the data is lost. Plus the timer will add the time spent waiting for the app to reload plus the time spent replaying the challenge so that it will look like I spent half an hour trying to finish the challenge instead of having done it in under three minutes. I get that you probably have thousands of people logging in at the same time and it’s a drag on the system but this is getting ridiculous. Please fix this issue, as the app is great otherwise. (Still wondering about being able to pause challenges and request hints during a game.)
Great App, Varied and Challenging
by Oahu1965 on 2020/06/11 20:38
I love that there are multiple Solitaire games in one app and that each game has several difficulty levels. It’s really easy to play a simple or challenging game in one place. The daily and special challenges add another level of fun and competition. If I could ask for one improvement it would be....Give the option to clear the board when doing the challenges. Sometimes I get really into the game, am doing really well when suddenly I meet the score or play the card needed and the game closes. How about a message like “Challenge achieved. Finish board?” and let the player decide. Other than that this free app is great and keeps me playing sometimes for hours
“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.
My favorite game!! But...
by Kristinmw2323 on 2020/11/16 04:30
I love this game! It’s my favorite version of solitaire out there (and I’ve tried MANY different apps). I play this game just about every single day, and I love the daily challenges. HOWEVER, you really must upgrade to a paid version to make it worth playing, otherwise the ads are just too much. I wish there was a set fee of like $5 because even though the monthly fee is only a couple dollars, it’s really a lot of money for what you are getting. Also, EVERY MONTH, on the day that my account renews, it reverts back to an unpaid account and I have to deal with ads again all day until the account renews. This has happened EVERY MONTH since I’ve had the app (about 6 months I think). This is a bug that NEEDS to be fixed.
Timer glitched
by mmmaggimmmae on 2021/02/05 23:12
Need to fix timer in events. Timer doesn’t stop at game finish, constantly adds time while system is acknowledging that it has an issue. A problem that never occurs when I’m doing daily challenges or just playing. Why when the amount of time is crucial for ranking won’t the timer stop. Sometimes I even have to close the app and replay the level while the timer is still running, usually after watching an ad. Today I didn’t even start the level because I needed to get off game for a bit & when I finished next level at least 30 minutes was added to my time. Please fix this as it ruins my enjoyment of the events which is my favorite part of your app. TIMER SHOULD STOP WHEN THE CHALLENGE IS ACHIEVED!
Great for passing the time.
by Graphiic Frenzy on 2021/01/18 21:14
I love solitaire and I've been playing these card games since I was young. Being able to sign into my xbox account and earn achievements is a nice touch too. However I've been trying for multiple months now to complete the Marathon achievement (which is to complete at least one daily challenge a day, for a month) and I've been doing this for the entire month of January (2021) until the 16th. My game apparently experienced a bug that would crash after completing a daily challenge, and (unknown to me until today) it wasn't syncing to my xbox account. I decided to uninstall the app and reinstall it, which fixed the bug. Then I noticed that three days worth of daily challenges haven't been logged. Meaning now I must wait until February to attempt the achievement again. These little bugs occur far too often and mess with progress when you delete and reinstall the app the fix said bugs. Really frustrating when paired with this type of "waiting game" achievement. Playing for fun: great, highly recommend. Trying to 100% a game I've had for a few years: not as high of a recommendation.
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.
Help MEEE 😔
by Emily Serratooo on 2020/07/11 09:42
I love this app!! It is realllyyyy goood and if it wasn’t for my current issue I’d rate it 5 stars but I can’t fix the problem! I had previously downloaded the app and created an Xbox account through my gmail a long time ago and have recently re-downloaded it. When I tried signing back into my account, I put in my email and misspelled it 🤦🏽‍♀️ There is an option that says, “Typo in your email? Fix it here” but every time I try to click on it, it turns darker and gets a underline but it doesn’t take me anywhere!! No matter how long I wait it stays on the same page. I’ve tried deleting the app and re-downloading it but it doesn’t help it stays the same!! I just want my old progress 😖 Can someone help mee?
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.
I love it. There is room for improvement.
by Xantharius on 2019/12/18 06:26
This is everything you love about solitaire. The card action and sounds are great; the graphics look good; it’s a good solitaire experience. But— If I have just one stack of cards that’s unturned (everything is else is Kings or is turned) the app should just complete the rest for me—do I have to go through the motions of making every single card in the deck move into its correct place before “Solve” appears? I know I’m done! Just finish it for me! And when there are no remaining moves possible, the app should know that, and not make me ask for hint after hint just to verify that fact. I know that I can’t make any more moves—why would the app not just work that out and tell me right away? This point is definitely the one that needs the most attention, as it’s a pain to have to not just cycle through every card in the remaining deck, but also have to request a hint on each occasion to provoke the app to report that no further moves are possible. I appreciate the work that goes into app-making. Sorting out these two points would improve things considerably. Thanks for the work you’ve put into the app.
Great Games Annoying Execution
by Over60techbabe on 2019/10/30 00:44
I really enjoy playing multiple solitaire games and if could would give this 5stars. However there is bug when playing the tournament games. Lately after winning a game I get the chasing white balls from hell and a error message that the internet is not on. Mind you I can go the the daily challenges and play without an issue. It’s the same app! Why can’t the tournament portion of the app not recognize the internet connection? Of course this means that my winning game is lost (and must be replayed) and the game time longer than it should be (faster finish time higher ranking). I’m seriously considering tossing this app.
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 ...
Ehhh
by Bella090303 on 2019/08/27 15:26
This would be the best solitaire game I’ve ever played, but there’s definitely some things that puts me off that I wish they would fix. First off is that you can’t start a new game. Once you start a game, the only way to restart it is either to press the undo button dozens of times until you’re back to the beginning-which eats up time as well- or finish playing until it says you are out of moves- which counts as a loss. It puts me off that there’s no way to actually restart the game. Also, the hint button can sometimes loop back and fourth between two moves not actually helping when you’re stuck, even though it’s not unsolvable and there’s a move you could do. If it weren’t for these things I would stick with this app.
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
Show “Time”
by Deebbpc on 2019/11/03 18:57
I do like this app much more than any other. I appreciate the updates, when we get them, I also feel the designers are interested in providing a great game to provide contentment for the users (players). I would so love it if, no matter how I play, tournaments, daily challenges, or just out there on my own, etc., I could ALWAYS see my time for each game. When I play, I frequently personally challenge myself. It would be so convenient if the time for each game showed up as it does in the tournaments. At this time, that is really the only concern I have with this app. I really love to play.
Needs one fix
by Col313 on 2020/08/12 16:56
I really love the app and went premium as a treat, but the ads are not too annoying if you don’t want to pay. However, there is one bug I would LOVE to see fixed. Every now and then the app freezes, says “Loading,” just after finishing a game. When that happens you lose credit for the game BUT IT STILL COUNTS YOUR TIME. So you have to play that round again, but it counts your time double. Could you please have the game stop timing as soon as it says, “Completed?” I think the problem is space, and I need to close apps before playing - if so, could you program in a warning so I could make space before the app crashes? Thanks.
Good gameplay, BUT....
by ElleBee123 on 2020/11/02 14:36
I have had this app for years and play it for maybe 10 or 15 minutes almost every day just to take a break. It relaxes me and I like that. So why the three stars? Because of the misleading ads. I don't mind that the game HAS ads—it's a free app, after all, so that doesn't bother me. What DOES bother me is the absolutely INCESSANT, 100% misleading ads from apps like Homescapes or Gardenscapes, where the ads don't even show actual gameplay. The ads look like these are fun pull-the-pin type puzzle games, when in fact these apps are just stupid match 3 Bejewelled style knockoffs. Super annoying. C'mon, Microsoft. You own this Solitaire app. It's a good app. You have more money than God. You can afford to police the advertising you allow. Do it.
Great Game, Almost
by The Objective Chipmunk on 2020/05/09 14:23
First off, this is absolutely the classic solitaire game you’re looking for. It brings back memories of computer class in high school where we wasted all our time playing solitaire and minesweeper. That said, the ads here, though not terribly intrusive, are still annoying. And to remove them, Microsoft has apparently had a stroke in deciding what to charge. Rather than a simple “remove ads” option for a few dollars (like most other apps), you need to pay a subscription. A subscription? Seriously? You want me to pay monthly or annually for a game that was free on every Windows computer two decades ago? Nope. So if you can put up with the ads, or don’t mind overpaying for a game to get rid of those ads, go for it. Great solitaire experience.
Good game, but the ads are out of control
by JC SV on 2020/02/01 03:43
Since I last updated, the ads have increased dramatically. Previously, they didn’t show up much of you played games in random mode. Now, it seems like there’s an ad almost every other play. To make matters worse, there’s a bug with the ad feature. If the app displays an ad and starts playing it, then the user switches to another app and comes back to the solitaire app, the ad will still be displayed, but it will be paused. No controls are available to either continue playing the ad or close it. The only workaround is to close and reopen the solitaire app. I’m deleting the app and finding a good solitaire app that I can pay for once. There’s no way I’m paying Microsoft for a subscription for a solitaire game.
Spider Solitaire is Great!
by DennyO- StAugustine on 2019/12/01 02:04
This game is super in that you can pick different challenge levels and if you initially fail to solve the challenge you can continue to work to massage your solution till you are successful! Some games can be solved in 10 minutes while others take hours over days to find the solution. As I start a game I don’t know which type of game I’ll get. It is always wonderful to come up with a quick solution, but longer games can be very satisfying after you solve them. Having a 99.5 +% success rate after playing over 1000 games is very satisfying.
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.
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.
LENGTHY ADS ARE DEFEATING THE PURPOSE OF GAME
by orangewebbedfeet on 2020/04/14 00:03
This game is used for fun and a mental escape. But the VERY lengthy ads are making more anxiety and is disrespectful. The ads used to be shorter, they kept growing longer for vendors that paid more, but it’s taking advantage of the game’s players. The ads were always annoying, but sometimes I liked them. I, as most people, dont need a long time to decide we are interested or not. Beating us bloody with ads for which there are no exits and once there is, the exit “x” is often so tangled with the ad that pressing the “x” takes you to the app’s ad repeatedly and finally back to playing the game, in general is an abuse. IN THE TIME OF A PANDEMIC IS DISGUSTING. PEOPLE NEED TOOLS TO COPE. WHEN THE TOOLS ARE TRYING TO MAKE MORE MONEY AT THE COST OF THE SUPPOSED PURPOSE OF THE GAME, ITS APPALLING. WE ARE WILLING TO VIEW ADS, BUT THIS IS OUT OF BALANCE, PLEASE RECONSIDER YOUR BUSINESS MODEL WITH THESE GAMES MICROSOFT.
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.
Microsoft Solitaire used to be fun
by KSPowercat on 2020/10/26 23:52
Microsoft Solitaire used to be fun, but their new add system is so intrusive as to make the game completely unplayable. You used to be able to ignore the adds, but now the adds completely take over the game and you are forced to watch an annoying finger play a game until hell freezes and you are allowed to close that demo. Unfortunately, they do that to you at least one more time, making you loathe what was once a really good version of Solitaire. Their add free version is way too expensive, and is a monthly or yearly payment. I'd gladly pay a few bucks to get rid of adds, but not what they are charging. This is Solitaire after all. Fortunately there are many more versions available in the store so I will be taking my playing elsewhere. Way to go, Microsoft, you ran me off.
Loading during competition
by frustratedirish on 2020/09/05 14:36
Unfortunately sometimes the game server is unable to load your game that you just finished during a timed competition so you are given a choice to cancel or retry. Or sometimes it will just give you the cancel and spin as it tries to load your data. The outcome is that your time for the competition event is much more than the actual time you spent playing because it is adding all the time trying to access the server. It is extremely disappointing and frustrating to play the games and then discover your time is 7 hours more than it should be!!!
Still pretty good but many problems too
by Steve8pi on 2020/01/30 12:47
-Removing another star because now most ads are using secret 1-pixel hotspots for the close X. It's almost impossible to close the ad when it is done playing. Carefully trying to hit the X results in taking you to the page to buy the product 85% of the time. -Downgrading my rating again. Now getting an ad for every game and half the ads have loud annoying audio that always defaults to on. -Came back to edit my review. I'm downgrading it to by a star due to the constant 30-second ads before each game. -Overall a pretty good solitaire collection but recent updates have turned on 30-second ads that can't be skipped. 😖 Also the new graphics are hard on the eyes. Smaller fonts, fuzzier card graphics. Not so pleasant to look at anymore.
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.

Looooooong video ads
by BusyD01 on 2021/03/01 00:48
When I first started playing these game, there were NO ads. Yet, the developers survived. As of late, there are looooooong video ads that often freeze and you cannot get out of unless you close the game. Fun games, but because of the loooooong ads, you lost two stars. Debating whether to just delete it all together. Well your Project Makeover advertisement, which is DISGUSTING was the last straw. Choose wisely! Bye!
Won’t Open!
by brewcrewchows on 2021/02/28 13:50
I can’t get any support for this app I pay for.... it keeps crashing! It won’t even open.

So I have been playing this game for long time now all the sudden. I can’t sign in and keeps telling me no internet connection. When I am connected
keeps losing progress
by rabbit1029 on 2021/02/26 03:58
It keeps losing progress around level nine. The "log in" function doesn't actually save anything. but it's solitaire, so I guess the progress doesn't really give anything? This is the seventh time the app crashed and lost progress. I keep trying to see if what level 10 does, but the app never made it that though.
Ridiculous Ads
by JohnSachs40 on 2021/02/25 18:52
I’m not a fan of writing this review. I very much enjoyed this app, but not as much as I hated the ads. The option to close the ad after waiting the allotted time will just start a new ad. Don’t you guys get enough revenue from the info farming? Anyway that’s why I’m deleting this app right now. I wouldn’t recommend this experience to anyone. Don’t be like me, have the sense to just not download this in the first place.
So good!
by Lottie G. on 2021/02/25 17:14
I got this game because I wanted to have a variety of solitaires to play, but I couldn’t find an app that had more than just one. I trust Microsoft as a good company to get apps from, because I know that there are no bugs or viruses in their software. Solitaire is one of my favorite games to play when bored, and the beautiful graphics and design make it that much more fun! A must have!
Solitaire
by loupou1943 on 2021/02/25 17:11
This is one game where I can play, and enjoy. I have tried many other Solitaire games, and I have found Microsoft to be the best one. I really enjoy the ending especially the first one where the cards come down, and I like that one is the best.
Great, only one problem
by andreia cs on 2021/02/25 02:08
I think this app is great. Really good game play and graphics. I just really hate that I cannot play my music in app. If I swipe down to press play, as soon as I swipe back up, my music stops playing. Really annoying, can anyone fix this?
Great for the brain 🧠
by averyjgunter on 2021/02/24 19:23
This app helps me with organizing strategies and relaxes my mind when I have nothing to do.
Event
by 31yesdniL on 2021/02/23 16:37
My Event section says I need internet connection. I have internet connection and unlimited data, but I haven’t been able to play the events for a few days now. Also, I tried going through the “support” option, and there’s no way I could post there.
WOW
by Foxie Lee on 2021/02/23 03:34
I usually do not like paying a subscription for any game. However this one is an exception as this has to be one of the best games to play. The cost of $9.99 a year is well worth the cost. I play every day and the graphics are really nice as is the game play. A big thanks to Microsoft for making a nice card game.

Ads

The ads have gotten out of hand. I’m tired of waiting for some silly childish ad to finish.
Nice,except
by Salllybbbbbbbbb on 2021/02/22 02:31
Nice that it has multiple games but I don’t like that it will automatically move the cards in Free Cell to the foundation spots. I wish there was an option that I could set Not to move automatically so that I could do it by myself.
Garbage Ads
by awh58 on 2021/02/21 22:45
Attention Microsoft advertisers I do not buy from ads. I take note of who advertises and I make sure I do NOT buy their products I buy from those who do not advertise. The software is buggy due to the ads requiring multiple reinstalls of the software. I have stated the problems in other post typical of Microsoft’s poor customer service there has been no response nor has the issues been addressed
Crashes after every game
by JaclynP💜 on 2021/02/20 19:01
I have the most recent update but yet it never fails after every round I play the game crashes. And even thought I am on WiFi it tells me there is no internet connection.

Broken at times
by Kindbro on 2021/02/19 23:07
Decent app, but the help AI is honestly terrible at solitaire, and will more frequently softlock you rather than help you. The subscription model is also ridiculous for a card game. $2 a month? An actual deck of cards is just $4!
Locks up my iPad
by Asaldecki on 2021/02/15 18:15
When playing the events game it constantly locks up my iPad and adds time to my score. Wish you guys were smart enough to fix that. Still locks up my iPad when playing Events game. When it does this it adds time to my game while it is locked. Will cancel my subscription until this is fixed.
Just One Little Thing
by ianburrito on 2021/02/15 01:14
This game is great, I have it on my computer too. But for iPad (and also, maybe for iPhone), when ever you play multiple boards (but not in Random Mode) of Pyramid or TriPeaks, if you solve 1 or 2 of the boards, but lose the other one[s] it does not give you experience points for the boards that you do not win. This happened to me when I got it on my iPad, so I stick with 1 board. And could you also make Level 81 easier to pass? I am on that on Spider and it takes ages.
Don’t have Xbox

Horrible Reliability
by Mrdrmagoo on 2021/02/14 05:14
This game plays ok on a Windows pc. On iPad static ads lock up every time I try to play. Sometimes there is a nonfunctional close button, most times no way to exit ad. There does not appear to be a time limit on static ads, I have walked away, returned 10 minutes later to same result. Only thing my cynical mind can conclude is that is Microsoft's way to force you to ad free paid version
Bad ads
by fred.nerk on 2021/02/13 21:17
The adds have become truly obnoxious and behave badly. Often clicking x to close takes you to the App Store instead of closing.
Another game that ads don't work
by dingbat885 on 2021/02/13 17:00
Another game that has ads you can't close. Don't you check these things? I understand why there are ads, that's no problem for me. What is a problem is when the ad will not close and you can not continue to play.
It’s an ad that lets you play a game or two in between
by XYZ70 on 2021/02/13 12:18
You start the game and there an ad. You play a game then there a two ads. And the ad will last like 30 seconds each time. When while waiting for the next game to load they show you ads. Ugh. And now it wants to share your info. Time to delete!!!!
Great, but.....
by nosmohtac on 2021/02/13 03:50
I love solitaire and this is a good game and wide selection of puzzles, but the ads are ridiculous. I've never seen so many 30 second ads for such short game play. Pure greed!

by BRT929 on 2021/02/11 05:00
If you participate in the daily competitors, the entire game freezes and loses your score. You have to play the game over and then it add your times from the first time to the second.
Excellent, with minimum ads

So glad the ads aren’t invasive, like other solitaire apps on the app store. That was very important to me. And best of all, when you win, the cards jump like they do on Windows. So happy
Fix the event timeout issue
by yydd on 2021/02/09 15:53
Sometimes when I play events and complete a level, the game is unable to save my results. When this happens, I have to quit the app and restart, but the event timer keeps running and destroys my time. Sometimes when I switch from WiFi to cellular data this fixes the issue and I can save, but this is rare. If you can’t fix the issue, at least make the timer stop when you complete the stage instead of saving after the “completed” screen that may or may not load. This issue has been around for some time and I’ve had enough. Maybe I will restore my paid subscription when this issue is fixed.

Timer glitched
by mmmaggimmmae on 2021/02/05 23:12
Need to fix timer in events. Timer doesn’t stop at game finish, constantly adds time while system is acknowledging that it has an issue. A problem that never occurs when I’m doing daily challenges or just playing. Why when the amount of time is crucial for ranking won’t the timer stop. Sometimes I even have to close the app and replay the level while the timer is still running, usually after watching an ad. Today I didn’t even start the level because I needed to get off game for a bit & when I finished next level at least 30 minutes was added to my time. Please fix this as it ruins my enjoyment of the events which is my favorite part of your app. TIMER SHOULD STOP WHEN THE CHALLENGE IS ACHIEVED!
Themes broke in recent updates.
by peterpanning on 2021/02/05 20:42
This is a fantastic app. I’ve been a loyal user for years, playing thousands of hours as I listened to audiobooks in bed each night. Recent updates however have made me dread opening the app. I use a custom theme, amoled black background with the default cards. For some reason now, themes are lost every time I close the app and have to be downloaded again. It’s annoying to have to click through the “new content” dialogs, download that updated content, enter themes, download the themes, and the pick the one I like to use, every single time I want to play. It use to work flawlessly. Now I’m in search of another solitaire app.

Not good
by mathiasedwardsjones on 2021/02/04 15:46
Played two games Klondike with grandmaster difficulty. Something Didn't seem right so I played another one- except this time i only played the moves that the hints offered. Om that game I “technically” didn’t have any moves left. But the only move the game could make was to keep moving a 3 of diamonds back and forth 🤦🏻‍♂️.

Fun but has issues
by illreviewthat on 2021/02/04 01:09
I’ve been enjoying playing the game but events really need some work. It’s really frustrating playing through an event level only to have to completely restart because the app can’t connect to the server (at least I’m guessing that’s the issue). You’ll get stuck with a spinning loading screen that offers you to cancel but of course you lose that play through and have to start again. Please fix this!
Favorite Solitaire App
by Jayline87 on 2021/02/03 04:37
I’ve tried multiple solitaire apps and this one is the best. I love the 5 different types of solitaire so that you have some variety. My favorite part of the app is the daily challenges they have (5 per day) and there are other challenges like the daily events. There’s a good range in difficulty so you can be challenged (expert/master) or just play for fun (easy). They’ve definitely figured out how to get people hooked on their app with all their challenges, badges and awards! My only problem with the app is that there is often a glitch in the daily events. You are timed on how long it takes you to complete all events and ranked based on your time. However sometimes the game times out and you have to do the puzzle over and sometimes it will count time you are not playing (for example, I did half the challenges, came back and it added the 5 1/2 hours break to my time). It’s not the biggest deal but if you’re being ranked based on your time it would be nice if the time was accurate. It would also be nice to be able to pause while you’re playing.
Many Thanks,

For the past month it will not connect to the internet and constantly crashes. I have tried to uninstall and reinstall, play on a different device and even restarted my phone. Nothing is helping! Your FAQ section does and says nothing about this. It’s not giving me an error code either. Playing on an iPhone 11 and Galaxy s10

Could be a 5 star app, easily. Except ads...
by buckrussell on 2021/01/27 18:54
what should be a no brainer app for m$ and they still manage to screw it up. want to play a quick game of solitaire? first sit through this ad. pathetic m$. i get it, you care only about money. there are ways to do ads that aren’t obnoxious and annoying. the next time i launch the game and have to watch an ad before i can even play a game will be the last time i launch this app.
Used to free then the ads started!
by Msekg on 2021/01/26 19:34
I refuse to play a game when Microsoft offered this for free. The ads don’t really bother me BUT now I can’t get into the game because of an ad that comes up when I want to start a new game! Removing came from my phone.
Not worth it
by Yarmo Zone. on 2021/01/25 00:34
Ads are very deceptive. They make it hard to close if you dont know the tricks. Instead of an X they sometimes have a C in the corner for close. The ads like fishdom are not representative of the actual games they purport to be. The monthly cost to remove ads is way too high. If you dont mind that, the game plays well.
Like to play this when I have time.
by Selyr on 2021/01/24 20:52
Love that you can get harder levels as you progress.
Card movement is very slow on this app
by LucyB52 on 2021/01/24 16:37
The app needs improvement to increase speed when moving cards and once solve it should automatically move cards into final positions. It takes 4 seconds for all cards shuffle into final four positions. Formula 1 pit crew can change 4 tires quicker than this app solves to final positions. This app takes me 15-30 seconds longer to complete game.

Inappropriate Ads, Had to Delete
by Jeanchile on 2021/01/21 04:07
Hey windows. I don’t need any of that stupid weight-loss bull crap your app is now selling, nor ANYTHING ELSE for that matter. After a recent update the ads have gotten ridiculous and I’m not paying for solitaire to get rid of them. I thought this would be a game suitable for children AND IT IS NOT. Deleted this piece of crap.
Times out when playing events
by INCEPTR on 2021/01/21 02:31
My network connections is normal, however after completing an event challenge it does not change to the next event but only shows the spinning loading wheel. If cancel is pressed that game progress is lost; also a “we apologize” message is displayed; hey incompetent app dev’s stop apologizing and fix the issue. I played this game using a PS and with the same internet network connection and it does not lock up between events. It is an app issue!

by Clouseau111 on 2021/01/21 02:00
I’m not sure how many times I’ve completed a game and then the screen says “loading” It never resolves and the only way to move on is to cancel. Your app is crap.
Premium doesn’t work?

I loved this app. I’ve had a premium subscription for years. Suddenly it no longer works, ads everywhere. Contacted MS support and they were super rude and disconnected me from chat. No idea who to contact now. Not happy and MS has another $10 that I’m not getting back.

by screamer43987543 on 2021/01/19 18:19

by Graphiic Frenzy on 2021/01/18 21:14
I love solitaire and I've been playing these card games since I was young. Being able to sign into my xbox account and earn achievements is a nice touch too. However I've been trying for multiple months now to complete the Marathon achievement (which is to complete at least one daily challenge a day, for a month) and I've been doing this for the entire month of January (2021) until the 16th. My game apparently experienced a bug that would crash after completing a daily challenge, and (unknown to me until today) it wasn't syncing to my xbox account. I decided to uninstall the app and reinstall it, which fixed the bug. Then I noticed that three days worth of daily challenges haven't been logged. Meaning now I must wait until February to attempt the achievement again. These little bugs occur far too often and mess with progress when you delete and reinstall the app the fix said bugs. Really frustrating when paired with this type of "waiting game" achievement. Playing for fun: great, highly recommend. Trying to 100% a game I've had for a few years: not as high of a recommendation.

Losing progress
by MicheleaNoel on 2021/01/18 18:38
Every time I do the daily challenges there is at least one that has trouble saving and I have to redo because there’s a bug that causes it to sit on the saving/loading screen and won’t do anything no matter how long I let it sit there. I have to close out the app and redo the challenge.
Too many ads
by Easy2021 on 2021/01/18 12:05
There are paid for ads and unpaid for ads. The later are there just to waste your time so that you’ll pay money to make them go away. Those last 30s and cannot be dismissed, considering the number of players, each ad costs the planet about 5K hours.

Server issues and you need more games in the daily events
by carmccor on 2021/01/15 16:09
It is really irritating to have completed a complicated game and have to play it again due to server access issues and a restart to clear it-then insult upon injury- time for that game includes the first game and second played when you finish it successfully twice. It seems to me that you could have more than 5 games a day in the events, ten or better fifteen would be great. Other than the above the app is great.

I love this game and the daily challenge, but...
by Amanda Jo 1984 on 2021/01/14 22:47
Never fails, almost every other day (some times several days in a row), I finish a challenge in the daily event and I don’t know if it’s because of the ads constantly trying to load and/or refresh or if there’s a server issue, but the connection somehow gets lost. I sit and wait while the thing twirls but nothing happens even though I am on wifi and have full bars. So, I wait, then get annoyed, close out app and come back. Then I have to repeat level again. Okay, fine.. whatever. But to make matters worse, when I finally complete it the second time, I am given a grand total time of the first round plus the second and the timeframe it sat there twirling all because of your software issues... messes up my time on the daily event and it’s frustrating! I want to get a good time to hopefully be in the top 10 but it is a rarity since your app isn’t functioning properly. Please fix this! I am not sure if it’s the ads messing it up or what but if so, I shouldn’t have to pay for no ads to get your app to work as it should. Smh...
Used to be a great app
by Bizzibizzibizza on 2021/01/12 17:37
The ads before EVERY game have ruined this app. I’ve played this app for several years, but the addition of the obnoxious ads mean I’m deleting it. Not paying a subscription fee to play. Greed ruins everything.
Buggy connection
by Emperorwilson on 2021/01/12 02:03
I love this app, but almost on a daily basis, I’ll be in the middle of a challenge and the app will fail to update results to the server making me lose progress as well as getting a major time penalty. Is this why nobody uses Azure?
I usually write a review, but I'm frustrated.
by ayurux on 2021/01/11 22:19
I usually never write a bad review, but microsoft solitare, which can be fun most times, can get very frustrating when playing events when you're racing against other players. Sometimes after I clear a stage, the screen to continue will hang and you'll see the dot circle of death. This always means that the game can't save your progress and whatever time you spent waiting for that circle thing to finish loading will be added to your clear time for that stage. It's frustrating because it happens to me most often than not. There should be safeguards built in for this kind of stuff, especially when it's not the player's fault that the solitare's server is slow and/or needs a refresh. Please fix this bug.

No new iPad support for years
by Acdop100 on 2021/01/10 14:28
As a fan of this app, I am extremely disappointed that after years of use a simple UI update to take advantage of the full iPad screen has not arrived yet. We still get plenty of “updates” but none that bring meaningful changes or updates. I would rate this 5 stars if you simply updated the interface to fully use the iPad screen space.

I would rate this game higher if you could ban cheaters like GRMXTREM, see todays challenge and note that of 871 challenges this person/bot has placed first 439 times. They have also placed first more times than second or third. I am sorry that this happens but it ruins the experience for those of us that play fairly.

These ads and the price
by donald duck girl on 2020/08/28 14:01
As of today, Aug 28, 2020 no answer from you. There’s another problem and if I get no reply I will uninstall it. My old IPad stop charging, I had already backed up everything. My new IPad all my game levels was transferred to the new IPad except your. My old IPad I was on level 87, my new IPad was at level 1. I don’t use Xbox at all and I’ve tried to contact you, and got message I had to sign in to Xbox live, no thank you. Everyone doesn’t always fall for a company being greedy. I'm about to uninstall this game, I love card games this one we was at an office appointment I pulled out my IPad to play got message that I could not play no internet, What? At first could not figure out why, my other card games I can play with no internet. Then it hit me, these ads they have on here and the price they want is crazy. I'm not buying anymore apps at this time. There one card game we bought to remove ads spite card game, I'm still dealing with ads and we paid for it, before we can get to next level we still have to watch an ad, for a game we paid for. I've also notice these crazy prices like this game where you can pay every year no way. Also we have paid then four months, six months down the road guess what no more updates and when Apple update there system that app does not work anymore, we are tried of being rip off. Apple needs to do something to quite letting these apps rip people off.
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.
Great gameplay, buggy infrastructure
by Janunson on 2020/07/11 17:12
This is the best gameplay, most attractive and satisfying graphics and interaction of any solitaire game out there by far. That’s why I keep playing it. I just wish the Microsoft underneath didn’t cause so much suckage. The game is obsessed with your internet connection, even though it really shouldn’t need it to play a card game!! It takes forever uploading and downloading... nothing, before you can play it, and after each game, and if your connection has changed, like from WiFi to cell, or to a different WiFi, it doesn’t cache the data and try on the new connection - no, it freaks out and won’t save your score and won’t let you continue playing. It also downloads some unnamed “new content’ constantly, then forgets it the next time you open the app, and downloads it again! And the themes- apparently what it’s supposed to have downloaded (you get to dismiss two messages every time it tries!!) are still screwed up every time you play, and when you fix them (which usually only lasts 1 session) it wants to download then yet again! Wow. So after writing all this down it’s clear I need to play a less visually slick solitaire game that isn’t so annoying. Again, the gameplay is the best, but the annoying bugs ruin it.
Solitaire time out
by JoeinAK on 2020/12/29 17:11
Love playing solitaire only problem I have is with the timed games. I can’t tell you how many times that the service can’t connect after I finish a game. It’ll take an extra minute or two and this extra time becomes part of your total time. Example you finish a game in say 2 minutes and it takes 2 minutes to finally connect so your total time is 4 minutes so this is totally not fair. Apparently Microsoft’s developers haven’t figured out how to eliminated this extra time due to there servers being overwhelmed by users. Sometimes after waiting for more than 5 minutes I quit out of the game and become frustrated so then give up playing for a while and go about my day. I then return later in the day and when I finish the game I had quit out of discover that even though I haven’t been using the app my total time ends up being the 2 or 3 hours I was doing other things. I even had it be over 8 hours for a game. I’m using an IPad an obvious competitor to the Microsoft surface tablet, funny bet those connect all the time. Otherwise I give them a 5 star review. I’m imagining that their developers will never read this but oh well.
Favorite Solitaire App
by Jayline87 on 2021/02/03 04:37
I’ve tried multiple solitaire apps and this one is the best. I love the 5 different types of solitaire so that you have some variety. My favorite part of the app is the daily challenges they have (5 per day) and there are other challenges like the daily events. There’s a good range in difficulty so you can be challenged (expert/master) or just play for fun (easy). They’ve definitely figured out how to get people hooked on their app with all their challenges, badges and awards! My only problem with the app is that there is often a glitch in the daily events. You are timed on how long it takes you to complete all events and ranked based on your time. However sometimes the game times out and you have to do the puzzle over and sometimes it will count time you are not playing (for example, I did half the challenges, came back and it added the 5 1/2 hours break to my time). It’s not the biggest deal but if you’re being ranked based on your time it would be nice if the time was accurate. It would also be nice to be able to pause while you’re playing.
Game memory
by ralexie2 on 2020/09/15 15:20
I love this application with the exception that when finishing a challenge, if you are disconnected from internet, the only way you can get back to the game is by closing the application and starting the challenge once again. You will be in a loop hole if playing the same game you finished but the sad story is that the challenge is timed and the clock does not stop till you finally get your score and can move on to the next challenge. Even after you close the application, the clock continues. Developers should develop a memory bank where the application can acknowledge it disconnected, save your progress and stop the clock. This is critical because every challenge is timed! It is weird that you never find out when it disconnects till you finish the challenge and are waiting for the score to appear so you can move on. Other than this, this application is the best I have ever played. Wish someone could look into making a patch to fix this. I don’t know if it just happens to me because I am using an iPad or it happens to any one on any other platform.

But to make matters worse, when I finally complete it the second time, I am given a grand total time of the first round plus the second and the timeframe it sat there twirling all because of your software issues... messes up my time on the daily event and it’s frustrating! I want to get a good time to hopefully be in the top 10 but it is a rarity since your app isn’t functioning properly. Please fix this! I am not sure if it’s the ads messing it up or what but if so, I shouldn’t have to pay for no ads to get your app to work as it should. Smh...
I have finally decided...
by 1stCeye on 2020/09/11 23:43
....the best way to play FREE CELL. ***Now understand that 2 months ago, free cell terrorized me! I would look at the board and freeze! There was just no way to organize that board. Put a card up in the cages and you lost the number of other cards you could move. I’d shake my head and find a Spider game. ( Now, I’m looking at 2 deck SPIDER Like I used to look at FREE CELL!...but I AM LOOKING....) I took the challenge one day...it took all the hints, and an hour, but I ALMOST got it. I was hooked! Easy game after easy game, I slowly saw strategies....ways around.... ***I still only play easy games (I actually won one medium game!), but I’m winning more....today, I decided in order to actually WIN; you line up LOGIC on one side of your brain....INTUITION on the other side; then. Take both hands (metaphorically) and SLAM THEM TOGETHER! Now, you are in the correct brain lane to win! (Sigh) ***MICROSOFT....PLEASE look into your HINTS helper. It has a frustratingly habit of REPEATING THE SAME HINT...BACK AND FORTH...I cannot learn that way....PLEASE!*** ***I will happily accept hints from players.....small cats, large dogs, a ferret, no porcupines, please! More later.... ***LATER.....great idea.....MICROSOFT, PLease consider creating a GIN RUMMY SET of games. It would be fantastic with the way you set up REAL games. There are no reasonable Gin games out here.....
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.
Tournament Timekeeping
by Annavon on 2020/07/03 03:44
I wish there was a way to track the play time correctly. Sometimes during a tournament, I have to stop playing. When I return and replay the game, it counts the time that I was out of the app against my total time. For example, I played a game for 2 minutes, but I get a phone call and EXIT the game and the app completely, I come back 2 hours later and replay the game finish in 2 minutes and 40 seconds. My total time should be 4:40, but it shows as 2:04:40. Today, I was playing during my lunch break. I went back to work and went home and took a nap. I finished the last game of the tournament in around 4 minutes. My total time should have been around 35 minutes. However, it showed more than 7 hours!!! It should only show the time actually playing, not time when we are not in the game at all. One more thing, it would be nice if there was a “pause “ button, so if you are interrupted, you can pause the game.
Review of Microsoft Solitaire
by broadleafrock on 2019/09/30 08:18
Microsoft Solitaire is very addictive but also very fun. I have been playing it for about three years. I try to find ways to solve the puzzles quicker so I can consistently be in the top 25. I believe some people must have two accounts so they can practice each puzzle on a trash account and score big on the second account. I like to improve my times but I wish there was a way to see how I compare with the group for each of the five games and even by difficulty level. Overall the games are great and I enjoy the challenges almost every day. I know you have to make some money along the way but the long commercials are boring to watch after the 20th or 30th time! Thanks for making the games so fun though.
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.
Classic Game with Flawed Mechanics
by fluffybunniesx on 2020/08/05 07:30
I love solitaire, and I’ve played this game on different platforms. I recently started playing it again and doing the events, but sometimes the connection to the server drops and I’m forced to cancel sending my completed challenge, and start over. The time that I’ve already logged on that challenge somehow gets saved but not my completion status? And to top it off even if you cancel sending the score, it counts all the time in between when you cancelled to when you try and complete it again. My latest challenge marked me down as taking 9 hours to complete when even the app hasn’t been open that long. I find the challenges to be some of the more interesting features this app has to offer so I’m disappointed that some of these flaws are here. Should be simple enough to locally store a variable that says the challenge was completed so that when there is server connectivity, the game can send the score.
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.
Greed has ruined this game.
by CaptRonSolo 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.
Consistently good, but...
by TeacherDRP on 2020/11/20 22:31
I have been playing for several years, and the developers seem to be trying to add new twists and make the game better. Bully for them. The free versions has ads which one should expect, but they seem to have upped the frequency and duration. As to the adds, I would love to have a relevance button since I am seventy-five and not likely to be Zynn (or Tik Tok) performer. That would, or should include an ad profile option to tailor ads to specific audiences, instead of using some algorithm. One other option I would love to see on the daily challenges (which I do, you guessed it, daily) is to have a “play through” button to allow one to finish the game even after having reached the required winning level.
Amazing but...
by Lagrima de Cristal on 2020/05/26 20:23
I am fascinated by this game, some challenges are really complicated, and I love that they make you think, the only but, is that although you have an excellent internet in your house, sometimes a half game Solitaire server, suffers from some interruption, this You can see it when after a game, it does not save that it is finished, and if you do not close it or practically disconnect, add all that disconnection time to the registry of your game, so if you finished a new one in 30 seconds, and you leave it like this Waiting for it to reconnect, it will appear that you were there all that time, that it can be 3, 5 or 12 hours, or until you resume it, and add it to your registration, that's why you lose positions.
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.
Like the game...timing for challenges is wrong and frustrating
by LuluSD on 2020/04/15 16:59
UPDATE: I just started the Pyramid Adventure challenge and decided to check my time after each game in the challenge. I just completed the first challenge without stopping at easy level within 3 minutes at most...I checked the time and it said 55 min 42 seconds. This is most discouraging & disappointing...especially as a premium player paying the annual subscription fee! PREVIOUS: Usually when you are interrupted in the middle of a game, you close it and pick up where you left off. This is also true of me solitaire, except that when doing a challenge...the timer still keeps going. For example, It may show I played for 8 hrs, when I only had an hour or minutes of actual playtime, so it affects my score. They need to stop the time when you have to interrupt a game and continue it once you open the game again.
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.
This is getting annoying
by Sharon Donahue on 2020/04/23 16:10
Once again I am forced to shut down the app after finishing a challenge and potentially having to replay it if the data is lost. Plus the timer will add the time spent waiting for the app to reload plus the time spent replaying the challenge so that it will look like I spent half an hour trying to finish the challenge instead of having done it in under three minutes. I get that you probably have thousands of people logging in at the same time and it’s a drag on the system but this is getting ridiculous. Please fix this issue, as the app is great otherwise. (Still wondering about being able to pause challenges and request hints during a game.)
Great App, Varied and Challenging
by Oahu1965 on 2020/06/11 20:38
I love that there are multiple Solitaire games in one app and that each game has several difficulty levels. It’s really easy to play a simple or challenging game in one place. The daily and special challenges add another level of fun and competition. If I could ask for one improvement it would be....Give the option to clear the board when doing the challenges. Sometimes I get really into the game, am doing really well when suddenly I meet the score or play the card needed and the game closes. How about a message like “Challenge achieved. Finish board?” and let the player decide. Other than that this free app is great and keeps me playing sometimes for hours
“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.
My favorite game!! But...
by Kristinmw2323 on 2020/11/16 04:30
I love this game! It’s my favorite version of solitaire out there (and I’ve tried MANY different apps). I play this game just about every single day, and I love the daily challenges. HOWEVER, you really must upgrade to a paid version to make it worth playing, otherwise the ads are just too much. I wish there was a set fee of like $5 because even though the monthly fee is only a couple dollars, it’s really a lot of money for what you are getting. Also, EVERY MONTH, on the day that my account renews, it reverts back to an unpaid account and I have to deal with ads again all day until the account renews. This has happened EVERY MONTH since I’ve had the app (about 6 months I think). This is a bug that NEEDS to be fixed.
Timer glitched
by mmmaggimmmae on 2021/02/05 23:12
Need to fix timer in events. Timer doesn’t stop at game finish, constantly adds time while system is acknowledging that it has an issue. A problem that never occurs when I’m doing daily challenges or just playing. Why when the amount of time is crucial for ranking won’t the timer stop. Sometimes I even have to close the app and replay the level while the timer is still running, usually after watching an ad. Today I didn’t even start the level because I needed to get off game for a bit & when I finished next level at least 30 minutes was added to my time. Please fix this as it ruins my enjoyment of the events which is my favorite part of your app. TIMER SHOULD STOP WHEN THE CHALLENGE IS ACHIEVED!
Great for passing the time.
by Graphiic Frenzy on 2021/01/18 21:14
I love solitaire and I've been playing these card games since I was young. Being able to sign into my xbox account and earn achievements is a nice touch too. However I've been trying for multiple months now to complete the Marathon achievement (which is to complete at least one daily challenge a day, for a month) and I've been doing this for the entire month of January (2021) until the 16th. My game apparently experienced a bug that would crash after completing a daily challenge, and (unknown to me until today) it wasn't syncing to my xbox account. I decided to uninstall the app and reinstall it, which fixed the bug. Then I noticed that three days worth of daily challenges haven't been logged. Meaning now I must wait until February to attempt the achievement again. These little bugs occur far too often and mess with progress when you delete and reinstall the app the fix said bugs. Really frustrating when paired with this type of "waiting game" achievement. Playing for fun: great, highly recommend. Trying to 100% a game I've had for a few years: not as high of a recommendation.
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.
Help MEEE 😔
by Emily Serratooo on 2020/07/11 09:42
I love this app!! It is realllyyyy goood and if it wasn’t for my current issue I’d rate it 5 stars but I can’t fix the problem! I had previously downloaded the app and created an Xbox account through my gmail a long time ago and have recently re-downloaded it. When I tried signing back into my account, I put in my email and misspelled it 🤦🏽‍♀️ There is an option that says, “Typo in your email? Fix it here” but every time I try to click on it, it turns darker and gets a underline but it doesn’t take me anywhere!! No matter how long I wait it stays on the same page. I’ve tried deleting the app and re-downloading it but it doesn’t help it stays the same!! I just want my old progress 😖 Can someone help mee?
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.
I love it. There is room for improvement.
by Xantharius on 2019/12/18 06:26
This is everything you love about solitaire. The card action and sounds are great; the graphics look good; it’s a good solitaire experience. But— If I have just one stack of cards that’s unturned (everything is else is Kings or is turned) the app should just complete the rest for me—do I have to go through the motions of making every single card in the deck move into its correct place before “Solve” appears? I know I’m done! Just finish it for me! And when there are no remaining moves possible, the app should know that, and not make me ask for hint after hint just to verify that fact. I know that I can’t make any more moves—why would the app not just work that out and tell me right away? This point is definitely the one that needs the most attention, as it’s a pain to have to not just cycle through every card in the remaining deck, but also have to request a hint on each occasion to provoke the app to report that no further moves are possible. I appreciate the work that goes into app-making. Sorting out these two points would improve things considerably. Thanks for the work you’ve put into the app.
Great Games Annoying Execution
by Over60techbabe on 2019/10/30 00:44
I really enjoy playing multiple solitaire games and if could would give this 5stars. However there is bug when playing the tournament games. Lately after winning a game I get the chasing white balls from hell and a error message that the internet is not on. Mind you I can go the the daily challenges and play without an issue. It’s the same app! Why can’t the tournament portion of the app not recognize the internet connection? Of course this means that my winning game is lost (and must be replayed) and the game time longer than it should be (faster finish time higher ranking). I’m seriously considering tossing this app.
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 ...
Ehhh
by Bella090303 on 2019/08/27 15:26
This would be the best solitaire game I’ve ever played, but there’s definitely some things that puts me off that I wish they would fix. First off is that you can’t start a new game. Once you start a game, the only way to restart it is either to press the undo button dozens of times until you’re back to the beginning-which eats up time as well- or finish playing until it says you are out of moves- which counts as a loss. It puts me off that there’s no way to actually restart the game. Also, the hint button can sometimes loop back and fourth between two moves not actually helping when you’re stuck, even though it’s not unsolvable and there’s a move you could do. If it weren’t for these things I would stick with this app.
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
Show “Time”
by Deebbpc on 2019/11/03 18:57
I do like this app much more than any other. I appreciate the updates, when we get them, I also feel the designers are interested in providing a great game to provide contentment for the users (players). I would so love it if, no matter how I play, tournaments, daily challenges, or just out there on my own, etc., I could ALWAYS see my time for each game. When I play, I frequently personally challenge myself. It would be so convenient if the time for each game showed up as it does in the tournaments. At this time, that is really the only concern I have with this app. I really love to play.
Needs one fix
by Col313 on 2020/08/12 16:56
I really love the app and went premium as a treat, but the ads are not too annoying if you don’t want to pay. However, there is one bug I would LOVE to see fixed. Every now and then the app freezes, says “Loading,” just after finishing a game. When that happens you lose credit for the game BUT IT STILL COUNTS YOUR TIME. So you have to play that round again, but it counts your time double. Could you please have the game stop timing as soon as it says, “Completed?” I think the problem is space, and I need to close apps before playing - if so, could you program in a warning so I could make space before the app crashes? Thanks.
Good gameplay, BUT....
by ElleBee123 on 2020/11/02 14:36
I have had this app for years and play it for maybe 10 or 15 minutes almost every day just to take a break. It relaxes me and I like that. So why the three stars? Because of the misleading ads. I don't mind that the game HAS ads—it's a free app, after all, so that doesn't bother me. What DOES bother me is the absolutely INCESSANT, 100% misleading ads from apps like Homescapes or Gardenscapes, where the ads don't even show actual gameplay. The ads look like these are fun pull-the-pin type puzzle games, when in fact these apps are just stupid match 3 Bejewelled style knockoffs. Super annoying. C'mon, Microsoft. You own this Solitaire app. It's a good app. You have more money than God. You can afford to police the advertising you allow. Do it.
Great Game, Almost
by The Objective Chipmunk on 2020/05/09 14:23
First off, this is absolutely the classic solitaire game you’re looking for. It brings back memories of computer class in high school where we wasted all our time playing solitaire and minesweeper. That said, the ads here, though not terribly intrusive, are still annoying. And to remove them, Microsoft has apparently had a stroke in deciding what to charge. Rather than a simple “remove ads” option for a few dollars (like most other apps), you need to pay a subscription. A subscription? Seriously? You want me to pay monthly or annually for a game that was free on every Windows computer two decades ago? Nope. So if you can put up with the ads, or don’t mind overpaying for a game to get rid of those ads, go for it. Great solitaire experience.
Good game, but the ads are out of control
by JC SV on 2020/02/01 03:43
Since I last updated, the ads have increased dramatically. Previously, they didn’t show up much of you played games in random mode. Now, it seems like there’s an ad almost every other play. To make matters worse, there’s a bug with the ad feature. If the app displays an ad and starts playing it, then the user switches to another app and comes back to the solitaire app, the ad will still be displayed, but it will be paused. No controls are available to either continue playing the ad or close it. The only workaround is to close and reopen the solitaire app. I’m deleting the app and finding a good solitaire app that I can pay for once. There’s no way I’m paying Microsoft for a subscription for a solitaire game.
Spider Solitaire is Great!
by DennyO- StAugustine on 2019/12/01 02:04
This game is super in that you can pick different challenge levels and if you initially fail to solve the challenge you can continue to work to massage your solution till you are successful! Some games can be solved in 10 minutes while others take hours over days to find the solution. As I start a game I don’t know which type of game I’ll get. It is always wonderful to come up with a quick solution, but longer games can be very satisfying after you solve them. Having a 99.5 +% success rate after playing over 1000 games is very satisfying.
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.
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.
LENGTHY ADS ARE DEFEATING THE PURPOSE OF GAME
by orangewebbedfeet on 2020/04/14 00:03
This game is used for fun and a mental escape. But the VERY lengthy ads are making more anxiety and is disrespectful. The ads used to be shorter, they kept growing longer for vendors that paid more, but it’s taking advantage of the game’s players. The ads were always annoying, but sometimes I liked them. I, as most people, dont need a long time to decide we are interested or not. Beating us bloody with ads for which there are no exits and once there is, the exit “x” is often so tangled with the ad that pressing the “x” takes you to the app’s ad repeatedly and finally back to playing the game, in general is an abuse. IN THE TIME OF A PANDEMIC IS DISGUSTING. PEOPLE NEED TOOLS TO COPE. WHEN THE TOOLS ARE TRYING TO MAKE MORE MONEY AT THE COST OF THE SUPPOSED PURPOSE OF THE GAME, ITS APPALLING. WE ARE WILLING TO VIEW ADS, BUT THIS IS OUT OF BALANCE, PLEASE RECONSIDER YOUR BUSINESS MODEL WITH THESE GAMES MICROSOFT.

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.
Microsoft Solitaire used to be fun

Microsoft Solitaire used to be fun, but their new add system is so intrusive as to make the game completely unplayable. You used to be able to ignore the adds, but now the adds completely take over the game and you are forced to watch an annoying finger play a game until hell freezes and you are allowed to close that demo. Unfortunately, they do that to you at least one more time, making you loathe what was once a really good version of Solitaire. Their add free version is way too expensive, and is a monthly or yearly payment. I'd gladly pay a few bucks to get rid of adds, but not what they are charging. This is Solitaire after all. Fortunately there are many more versions available in the store so I will be taking my playing elsewhere. Way to go, Microsoft, you ran me off.
Loading during competition

Unfortunately sometimes the game server is unable to load your game that you just finished during a timed competition so you are given a choice to cancel or retry. Or sometimes it will just give you the cancel and spin as it tries to load your data. The outcome is that your time for the competition event is much more than the actual time you spent playing because it is adding all the time trying to access the server. It is extremely disappointing and frustrating to play the games and then discover your time is 7 hours more than it should be!!!
Still pretty good but many problems too

-Removing another star because now most ads are using secret 1-pixel hotspots for the close X. It's almost impossible to close the ad when it is done playing. Carefully trying to hit the X results in taking you to the page to buy the product 85% of the time. -Downgrading my rating again. Now getting an ad for every game and half the ads have loud annoying audio that always defaults to on. -Came back to edit my review. I'm downgrading it to by a star due to the constant 30-second ads before each game. -Overall a pretty good solitaire collection but recent updates have turned on 30-second ads that can't be skipped. 😖 Also the new graphics are hard on the eyes. Smaller fonts, fuzzier card graphics. Not so pleasant to look at anymore.
The Ads Ruined It

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.
