Keeps crashing my iPad
by Bairsdad on 2021/02/25 15:05
In the past week or so, the game crashes my iPad. I had 4 games and played the daily challenges (I never lost a game and yet it didn’t score that way) something happened with the software and I had to delete them. So if I redownload I start from scratch. No biggy .

Three star review

As I have moved up in levels it appears that ads are much longer. To avoid this wasted time I close and reopen the app saving in excess of 30 seconds.

by What I think about this on 2021/02/19 11:11
The game has become buggy. It will randomly reset although it appears to happen mostly when an alarm or some other app interrupts. I enjoy playing the game. I like that they added the ability to play the games in sequence and now it evens keeps the next game in memory when not played for a while. (It now sometimes replays a completed game.) Some of the commercials don’t seem to adhere to the 5 sec. rule.

It’s My Favorite
by Megawatt1944 on 2021/02/11 01:13
Of all the solitaires offered, I like FreeCell the best. I like games where you can go out if you play well. It’s a waste of time to play a game when you never had a chance of going out. FreeCell is the most challenging of all the solitaires, and since you can see the face of every card, is perfect for applying strategy. Pyramid can be unsolvable no matter what you do (Daily Challenge excepted) or too easy. Because you can’t see the face-down cards, Crown and TriPeaks don’t give that much scope for strategy, although the runs are rewarding. Solitaire and Castle are fun, but not as challenging as FreeCell. I’ve tried the others offered by MobilityWare, but found them simplistic, not complicated enough. MegaWatt

I like FreeCell, except when ads override silent mode
by Klingon725 on 2021/02/07 16:36
I have enjoyed playing FreeCell, and understand the need for ads since I’m playing the free version. However, sometimes (and unpredictably, ads will blare out with audible sound, even though I have my iPhone set on Silent mode. I would GREATLY appreciate if this can be fixed, since I do not care for these random occurrences. I have my phone set to Silent (using the hard Mute button on the side of my phone) for a reason, namely that I do not want to disturb anyone who may be within earshot while I am using my device.

Ads that ABSOLUTELY disorient you
by Player75757575 on 2021/02/04 06:03
Absolutely HATE the ads TO NO END that come up in landscape mode when you’re playing in portrait mode. Makes the experience extremely confusing and it’s just easier to crash the app than to try to navigate through it. Might just delete the app if this persists. Also HATE the ads that kill the music you’re listening to and hog your phone.

I would like to see actual random dealing instead of extremely difficult puzzles almost always when your trying to make me buy the app... in essence keeping me in the game longer with difficult puzzles so you can try to sell me something.

Stop the Ad sound/music PLEASE!!!
by Fabey babey on 2021/01/30 11:42
While on a subway or in a class room environment I like to listen to my “music” without interruption and while trying to relax but I can no longer do that because the Ads starts after each game with its own quirky style of cheap slot machine music. Sometimes the sound from the Ads “turn off” my music forcing me to shut down the app just to turn my music back on. Therefore, when this happens I just stop playing the solitaire game. There’s other apps out there that are just as good so stay away from this app unless you like Ads interruption your music play. Freaking annoying!!!!!!

Love this game! Love this app!
by JustMiceElf on 2019/04/14 12:41
I have loved this game since I first played it back in the day on my computer. I love this app because it gives me the same great game on my phone, with the addition of daily goals. As a software tester I truly appreciate the quality. I tried other FreeCell apps and deleted them all before finding this one. If there was one thing I would add to the game though, I would love to know the numbers of the games I have lost, so that I could go back and try again. Update: I did contact support but for the sake of the review readers, I will explain the feature I would like to see. If you go to settings > statistics you can see how many games you have won and lost. My request is, if you play numbered games (yes, I started at 1) that you be able to see the game numbers of the games you lost so that you could try them again. The feature would not work for randomly generated games as they have no numbers. Bonus if winning a previously lost game would erase the count in the lost column. :D
Great for the mind and competition.
by GOLDANDLAPS on 2018/02/06 15:48
Fee cell is the first game my wife and I played on a computer. This was back in early 1990 I cannot remember exactly the year. We played the game in succession and would play it together. When of us would see a move we would talk it out and decide which move to make next. I can’t remember what number we got to, but eventually things changed in our lives and we became to busy to play. We are retired now and have started playing again only now we play on our own phones, but we challenge each other to see who has the highest game. We have never found a game that we could not solve. We have known each other for 51 years and have been married for 48 years. We don’t know if our lives will change again and will stop playing again or not, but for now it’s a great way to pass time and more importantly use our minds and that’s really great.
Some Ads Do Not Close
by PCHomepage on 2019/10/18 05:54
While I expect a free app to support itself with ads, I do have problem when some have no facility to close them, especially when the ad itself is in poor taste to the point of being disgusting. When it happens, the only way around it is to force the app to close, then open it again. My patience, though, is not unlimited so if it happens again, I’ll be removing the app from my device and cut off the revenue channel. No way I would consider purchasing an app that allows that sort of thing and that they are third-party ads is no excuse nor would I ever buy a subscription. On top of that, even with the sound muted, some still play it loudly and there are several that no matter what you say, it takes you to the App Store. Others, when clicked to close, open another version of the ad with the close X in a different location so it’s almost a game in itself about how to close the ads! There are some without any way whatsoever to close them short of forcing the app to close. Support did write to me about this revue but there was no way I could reply through the app and the email did not provide a legitimate reply.
Perfect No-Brain Game
by striderepiphany on 2020/02/03 23:36
I love FreeCell because I can pay attention to things I’m listening to like a podcast while being able to keep my hands busy. For this I can use any form of Solitaire, but I like FreeCell because it’s just hard enough to be challenging but easy enough so I don’t get frustrated or lose focus from what I’m listening to. I also like this app in particular because the ads are never longer than a couple seconds if you can’t skip them entirely, which is a problem I have run into with other puzzle games. I also like the goals/level system, because it’s completely useless but it’s still fun to do the daily challenges and watch your level go up. I think I’ve been getting points just to see how far the titled levels go, so far I’m an “Associate Poobah” on level 420 which is just delightful. How many titles are there. Am I going to die trying to find out. We shall see.
Problem Solving Practice
by Mrs English Grammar on 2018/12/12 11:24
When I was teaching 7th grade in the public school I always included Problem Solving Skills. Basically they are the same as Scientific Theory taught in 7th grade Science. Teaching it from a little different approach reinforced. Once the problem is thoroughly identified of all its parts, the #2 step is to make a list of all the possible things one could do in an effort to solve. We sometimes call this brain storming. Leave no possibility unlisted because two may have to be combined to make the solution. Use the list to carefully consider each possibility. Look for why one will not work and gradually eliminate until you have only one or two remaining for Step 3. If neither are obviously usable by now, try one and then the other. Choose the solution, in Step 4, by which one works best. If this one does not solve, repeat steps 2 and 3. Step 5 is to put your solution into effect and make it work. It may need adjustments or another’s advice. Always believe in yourself and know you can. There is a solution for every problem. FreeCell is a perfect practice for developing this skill. It is fun to play and even allows Steps 4 & 5. Students can play a game while learning. For me, now that I am retired and my thinking skills or memory sometimes fails me, FreeCell helps me stay sharp. It’s a brain exercise , if you will !
Review- I have one gripe
by Feustrated on 2018/06/04 00:01
I play and I don’t like to loose so if I get stuck I use undo a lot. I want to win even if I get a low score. I would rather win with a low score than try to start over because that counts as a loss. My gripe is that I had a winning streak of 983 whipped out because my finger brushed against the wrong button. I was winning the game , but I had to put the phone down and do something else. When I got back to the game One of the pop up adds came up and I had a hard time of getting rid of it. When the game came back it went to the screen that gives the chose of games. I went to cancel that screen and accidentally brushed against the numbered deal and started the next game. Of course it counted the game that was interrupted as a loss and ended my win streak. You are allowed to undo other mistakes, but that one is fatal. Can you add the option that gives a warning that what you did will end the winning streak and allow for a corrective action??? The same thing happened to me when I built the winning streak to over 950. I was so mad I quite parlaying for a week or more and recently I had gotten it up to over 550 and I frankly don’t know what happened but when I looked I had a winning streak of 6. I quite playing for several weeks and now I have a rousing winning streak of 7. When the opportunity came up to write a review——I took it.
Fantastic! + Suggestion
by Gardenovena on 2020/03/31 15:09
I LOVE this game! As others have said, it is so polished and easy to use, and you can just tell that they truly keep the player in mind in the design. Also, just a darn fun game! Since you guys ask for feedback on one of the splash screens, I have a suggestion—for the Daily Challenges, it would be nice if the goals that have a limit would have a count down. Some Challenges like “get 40 Spades to the foundation” will count your progress so far, but when there is a limit there isn’t really an indication if you are trying to squeeze it in. For example, one of today’s was “win any game with less than 15 cards moved to the freecells”. At some point I realised I might make this goal but I wasn’t keeping count so I didn’t know how conservative I had to be with the freecells! Maybe a bar that unfills rather than fills? Maybe a red bar? Thank you for reading!
Freecell is my favorite kill time app.
by Rickonwallerville on 2017/08/26 17:52
The way I play free-cell is by allowing my phone to select the next game and if I cannot win, I back until I have a whole deck and play until I win. Some games are tough and take a good number or repeats. There are a few games that are un- winnable and when I am having a particularly difficult game I wonder if I am in one of those. But there is no way to know what game you are in. So in my list of improvements would be showing the game you are playing and possibly rating it on a difficulty scale. In this way I would 1, know if a game is un winnable, and 2, help me see how well my gaming compares to others by seeing how difficult a game is. As far as adds, there is a way to kill them off so If they really bother someone pay for the game. If you are intelligent enough to play freecell you should be able to figure out that nothing is free!
Updating my review...
by Ad aspera on 2019/07/22 18:10
I previously left a 2-star review because the ads had gotten out of hand. The developers replied to my review and asked me to submit screenshots of ads that couldn’t be closed. I have noticed since then that the ads are more manageable. I understand that ads are a fact of life for free app. I’m just thankful that I can now close them after a few seconds instead of having to watch a 30 second ad that can’t be closed. —————————————— Ads, Ads, Ads! So many ads that I’m playing this game less and less. There’s and ad between every game, and while it used to be that you could X out of an ad once it started, it now seems most of the ads are timed at 30 seconds and you can’t exit out of them. I understand the need for ads on a free app, but no other game app I use has as many ads as mobilityware.
Fix the maddening instability!!!
by Senator503 on 2020/07/12 14:12
Ever since version 5.3.3 this game has become so unstable it is nearly unplayable. It takes 30 to 40 seconds to load before allowing you to start the game. It then freezes 15 to 30 seconds into the game for another half a minute or so. But the most aggravating “feature” is when it crashes completely without warning without saving your progress. Imagine how happy that makes me when I have been painstakingly searching for a solution on a difficult game only to have it crash and take me back to the start. I would have given 5 stars before v5.3.3, but now I will not play it again until I see there’s a new version. Fix this please!!! Update: Instability finally fixed with 5.4.0 update. The game is fun to play again.
Classic game, too many ads
by Sgirl2 on 2018/08/19 02:12
This game is just as I remembered playing on my old desktop PC. The game has no bugs and is customizable. There are daily goals to keep the game fresh. However, I deducted stars for the frequency of game ads. Between every game there are two ads, and even when I switch between “random”, “winning deal” and “numbered deal” there are ads. Sometimes the goals require winning a certain numbered deal, and it infuriates me when there is an ad between reading the goal and and selecting a numbered deal because I have to worry about forgetting the deal number. While it’s not a huge deal, it does become annoying very quickly. This is especially true since the game won’t play if you aren’t connected to the internet since this prevents the ads from loading. If there were a paid version I’d happily pay a dollar or two to not have to deal with the stupid ads. Either provide a paid version or reduce the amount of ads.
Best Time Waster Ever!
by Reb Bacchus on 2019/12/10 21:20
This is the best time waster I’ve ever seen. I’ve been playing for several years and have won at least 6,000 games between the free and paid version. BTW the paid version is more than worth the cost. One “feature” I wish it didn’t have is the ability to wipe your record. No, that’s not fair, I just wish I had used the option to save some of my history. Currently I’ve got a little over 2,000 wins, all with the top score when I finished. I have 2 losses, that I can’t explain because I’ve never intentionally left a game without winning. Okay so one game took over 3 hours to win… remember what I said about time wasters? At least I’m retired so I’m not playing on someone else’s nickel. Bottom line, I love this game and this version!
FreeCell
by Freecell Ellie on 2019/02/02 20:54
I have become totally addicted to this game. However, it began to freeze up after playing a number of games. I’d wait for several hours or until the next day. It would work for awhile, but it would freeze again. This went on for awhile, but I was thrilled to reach level 20. When a suggestion came up to change the background to a different theme, I chose Valentine’s Day. It worked for awhile and then totally froze up. I waited until the next day but it was still frozen. I ended up deleting it, although I knew I all my hard achieved levels would be gone. I am enjoying playing the game again, but very annoyed because of the freezing issues. Are there any suggestions to keep this from happening? I am playing on an iPhoneX.
Love this Game !!
by AKSnowdrift on 2018/07/02 06:56
It really makes my brain do some work. I used to play it on my computer then in spare time at work or on breaks. Then I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and had to leave work because of problems with it. I now have it installed on my cell phone and sometimes it’s a challenge for me but it makes me think. I don’t win them all (short term memory loss because of the Fibromyalgia and meds I have to take. Thank God pot is legal in Alaska again. It really helps too) but I have always enjoyed this game!! I was so glad I found your app. Now I can have something to do when hubby is binge watching NCIS on tv. It really makes me think about how to make my next move, which is a great thing! I can’t thank you enough for this app!!
The very first, best game I’ve ever put on my iPad!
by WhiteHouseSW on 2018/03/01 22:21
When I bought my very first iPad 2, lo these many moons ago, this was the first game I downloaded and played. Now both that iPad2 and this Solitaire game are a little older and, while I no longer use that iPad very often (it’s in emergency spare status), I still play this game. There have been little tweaks along the way to make a better presentation, true, but I enjoy the familiar screens, the stability of the app, and the options for the cards, decks and background. This game has never gotten stale or boring. This remains an EXCELLENT GAME & app! My appreciation is offered to the developers for not overdoing the changes and maintaining such a high level of understanding what the users want. Really, an exceptional job!
Ads are the worst
by First baby abcdefg on 2019/08/18 04:42
I have used this app now for more than 3 years. The Ads were fine in the beginning (I honestly am not sure there were ads when I first downloaded it?). Now some of them were extremely inappropriate (I.e. violent) and multiple ads btwn games which were difficult to close and opened another unwanted window for the ad. Also some ads play very loud sounds unexpectedly which you cannot control. Woke my baby or spouse up. I’ll be looking for another app. This one has run its course. To any potential downloader, you can now purchase an option to avoid ads but it’s a pricey monthly subscription. I’d rather just purchase the game. Most of the recent updates were unnecessary and unwanted. I received zero customer service when I encountered an update where they took away a feature. Took them more than a year to put it back. Just overall not good in my humble opinion.
Annoying glitches
by Curmudgeon1943 on 2020/11/28 13:09
Overall, this is a great game and my main go-to game. However after several years of playing there are two glitches that have annoyed me. First is the “trophy” award system. Trophies are awarded through the daily challenge portion of the game. However, at least in my case after filling in many months, the only awards that get logged are the first level “copper” ones. After over 624 crowns none of the silver or gold trophies are logged. Second glitch: I am now more than halfway through the second cycle of level titles. I reached the “tableau titan II” level and then at the next level the game bounced me back about 20 levels. I was working to Make it through the “II” title level and now find I was bounced back by about 60 games. I’d like a programmer or tech manager at the company to address these issues. Thanks.
It’s My Favorite
by Megawatt1944 on 2021/02/11 01:13
Of all the solitaires offered, I like FreeCell the best. I like games where you can go out if you play well. It’s a waste of time to play a game when you never had a chance of going out. FreeCell is the most challenging of all the solitaires, and since you can see the face of every card, is perfect for applying strategy. Pyramid can be unsolvable no matter what you do (Daily Challenge excepted) or too easy. Because you can’t see the face-down cards, Crown and TriPeaks don’t give that much scope for strategy, although the runs are rewarding. Solitaire and Castle are fun, but not as challenging as FreeCell. I’ve tried the others offered by MobilityWare, but found them simplistic, not complicated enough. MegaWatt
As much as I love the game, Grrrrr
by Suzy's pix on 2019/08/16 03:30
I’ve had to uninstall this app one time due to slowing and crashing. I reinstalled this app starting from scratch saving nothing, and all went well, until I got over level 100, then it started crashing again. Each time I started a game, it’s been taking longer and longer for the ad to appear, then once the ad was completed, and up, it took a frustrating amount of time until I was able to move the cards again. That didn’t include when the screen froze. If it were my tablet, I could understand, but just this app? I have my serious doubts. I’ll just move on to another app, hopefully I don’t have a repeat frustrating experience.
Obnoxious ads ruin this app.
by we're in Cardiff!?! on 2020/07/09 12:58
Ugh. The ads in this app are outrageously invasive. Some are loud, obnoxious & unwelcome - especially when you're playing in bed when you can't sleep. With this app, no one sleeps. Some ads don't allow you to pass over them - you have to play the game they're trying to sell you first. Some have an 'X' so you can skip the ad, but it's misplaced so instead of closing the ad, it hijacks you to their website or to the app store & shares your info (IP addy, location & who knows what else) with the advertiser. This is a very lucrative "glitch" because the app owners can report an excellent return on investment to their paying advertisers by showing how many clicks their ads got - forget the fact that we haven't clicked willingly. Ridiculous. P.S. Want to skip the obnoxious ads? Shut the app after reloading the game and open it again. More often than not that actually takes less time to do than to wait to skip the ad.
Love this game, but.....
by jerrysp005 on 2020/01/05 03:09
I have playing this game for a couple of years. Occasionally an ad plays that is hard to close. Today, Jan 4th 2020, an add for 3D sniper plays, that is totally inappropriate for anyone playing a solitaire card game. Also to ad does not have any way to close it and return to the FreeCell game. The only way is to force close freecell and app center because it opens that too, and any other web page that often opens that tries to advertise this rubbish. That’s right, it plays violent R rated stuff and does not have ANY way to close or shut it off. I will reluctantly be NOT playing freecell until this revolting rubbish is removed. I probably should not even be promoted by Apple!
Betty’s Luck.
by swiftymama on 2018/01/09 11:54
I LOVE this game. Can’t believe it took me a while to catch on but boy when I did I became addicted. My favorite thing was teaching my mom to play. It quickly became her favorite pastime activity. she took to it like a duck to water and had so much fun. She kept track of her favorite games and we swapped notes and passed along the game numbers!! Thank you so very much that!!! This is fabulous for insomnia too. Gets your mind off whatever’s bugging you!!! Sweet!!! I hope there’s some Freecell in Heaven because it sure was an innocent but happy, rewarding, mind sharpening, relaxing, quick, time filling, anti lonely, FUN, witty, and pleasurable game time for how ever much time you had!!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU
Too many aggressive ads
by olemansteve on 2019/08/03 23:17
The free version of this game was excellent. I have used this game as brain exercise for several years. The downside is the trend toward the increasing aggressiveness, and frequency of the ads. Now, most game starts require watching 2 ads that have a time delay up to ~30 seconds before allowing it to be skipped. There are of late, new ads that not only have a skip delay - they also open the app store to the advertised app to download. Add to that, a glitch(?) that requires several attempts to close the app store to start the new game. I understand there is a paid version of the app. Downside: the free version stats are NOT transferred to paid version. I am currently trying to find the paid version to see how much it cost - nothing so far. There is a link in support, but it didn’t work for me. Definitely uninstalling the annoying free version. If the paid one cost too much, I’ll go with a friendlier developer.
Angry Glitch
by Mommeeeeeeeeeeeeee on 2018/10/01 00:51
I have been a fan of Mobilityware for years. I have played FreeCell for about 12. Huge fan! But today I noticed a glitch. Maybe it was there before Maybe not. I had two sets of five cards that I could move. One set would have reduce the line of cards in that row. The second set could have been added to the cards in that row. But my goal was to decrease the cards, not increase them. The system wanted me to increase the cards and would not allow me to move the other five cards to an open space. A little disappointed as the only games I play are Mobilityware games. Reason: few problems, well thought out, and easy to navigate.
Update needs a bug fix
by gjheign on 2018/12/08 14:05
I don’t remember when I got my first iPhone but I have been playing Free Cell for several years. I just recently did the update and I’m really not very happy with some of the problems such as: making a selection to play one of the goal games and then having the screen go totally blank and nothing happens!! Having to get out of the game and totally clear/close the program and then go back in and make your selection all over again!! It’s frustrating having the ads come pop up and difficult at times to get rid of them!! Hopefully you will be able to get these bugs fixed real soon!!!!
A few adjustments needed
by Tasteful & True on 2017/11/21 15:58
The actual game of free cell is great, I just think the app needs a few adjustments. For one, each time you go up a level the required “coins” you need to get to the next level should be in increments of twenty-five. After playing for a while in the thousand coins needed range, I began to wonder why I would have sums like 233 or 108. I decided to reset my statistics and find out. It’s because of levels like the Hobbyist (starting on level 11) with a needed sum of 678 that these coins get thrown off. I just get bothered by it and would be very grateful if it was corrected. Also, if it could be more like the regular solitaire game when auto completing (each level goes in on its own and all the kings go in last when there are no queens left) that would be great as well.
Calming freecell
by jczeroxy1994 on 2020/08/31 02:47
This is the best freecell app ever. It gives you the option to be bright and flashy or not. I play this before bed every night and it’s perfect because I mindlessly tap away. I keep the animation and hints to a minimum, the screen can be locked so you can comfortably play on your side, the ads are only 5 seconds long in between games (ads a re a must to keep it free but they don’t pop up randomly during play) and best of all it’s full screen and doesn’t show the time!! That’s beneficial because I like to play until my eyes are heavy and if I see the time that can cause anxiety before bed. Plus the statistics are really thorough. Great app!!!
Granddaddy’s Favorite Pastime
by Dixiebelle33 on 2018/07/31 20:38
My grandfather played card games in his last days back in the 1940s. I remember he spent a lot of time shuffling the decks. Wish he had been able to enjoy your version and all the marvels of the electronics we enjoy today. He would probably dance a jig not having to shuffle and deal the many games he played! Playing this game is really a neat way to keep the old brain sharp! He could have played thousands more if he could have laid out the cards with the push of a key. He was the most brilliant person I’ve ever know, and he was sharp as a tack until the end. Hope my DNA and Free Cell does as well for me!
Subscription was a deal breaker
by On54r on 2019/08/16 18:50
I liked the app but way too many ads. I was hoping they would add a way to give them some money to get rid of ads, but when they recently added the premium mode that was a subscription model I promptly deleted the whole app. This type of game has no good reason to be on a recurring subscription. —- Later update - I found the game, same developer and same features, as a paid app for $5 which I was fine with paying. If they would have offered the no ads version as an in-app purchase they would have had my $5 months ago. The subscription model on this one just angered me, and finding that it is merely a tax on the lazy makes me come back and lower the rating here. Pick this for the free with ads, if you’re going to pay go find the other version.
Portland Doula Julie
by Portland Doula Julie on 2018/07/28 05:52
I am totally dependent on my Free Cell phone game for keeping me calm when my life gets too stressful. I can go immediately into “ the zone” and everything else on my To-Do List fades away. I would love to play competitively by randomly picking a number and having two people start playing the same game at the same time. But so far, I haven’t found anyone willing. (I’m at Level 927 now, I think.) My brother in R.I. (I’m in Oregon) plays strategically, and thoughtfully, so has a 100% record of solving the games. I like to play fast and furiously, so have only around a 70-something, or maybe an 80-something % solution record. I can’t remember. (I’m 78, and my husband and I are about to celebrate our 50th Anniversary (a small miracle, since we are probably the most incompatible couple on the planet!). He is committed to his computer cribbage game so has zero interest in Free Cell. Too bad. He would be a worthy opponent.) Our kids know that if my Free Cell malfunctions, they MUST come immediately to the rescue!!!
Challenging But Fun
by Carrie77409 on 2017/09/24 06:00
I love Mobility Free Cell Game. It is not only fun to sit down at any unexpected/unknown venue and play one of these games to pass one's unexpected excess time but to challenge your mind in solving these puzzles. To me, the lacking part of the designers/developers of the software is in the accomplishments of obtaining a new level e.g. from Level 23 to Level 24; okay but I do not believe at this time, one can go past Level 39 - even if they have accomplished reaching goals beyond that. I had done over 90 games & the game reset itself to a lower level in the 30's. But despite all - I still enjoy very much the challenge of these puzzles.
Great game But malfunctioning ads ruin it.
by Tobiath on 2018/02/20 20:11
I've played this version of FreeCell for as long as FreeCell has been out, it's always been great. Something has changed, though, and not for the better. I keep getting ads that either don't have any content and lock up my phone so I have to shut it down and reboot or they play in the middle of a game while the game is going the ad is going – – very distracting and annoying – – or I have to sit and listen for 15 to 30 seconds with no opportunity to cancel the ad before I can play. If I game takes between two and four minutes, I'm spending way too much of my time watching ads. I make a point of not buying anything in those ads. Even so, It's gotten to where I simply have no desire to play. Nice way to ruin a really good game, guys.
Good app
by Kdbeidbdj on 2017/12/18 06:42
The game of FreeCell is great, but this rating is for the app. It’s simple, there are definitely ads but in my opinion they are minimal, and I can’t complain since it’s free. There are plenty of options to choose from so you can play the way you want, and the daily goals make it just that much more fun, to keep me hooked. I also like how they track statistics. You can play offline which is nice. Overall, it’s very well done. So well done that I have wasted entire days playing this game. The app asked me to rate it and I figured I owed at least that much to them, so there you go.
Good game, could improve
by M_Shelby094 on 2021/01/09 17:48
I really enjoy this game and play it nearly every day. I like the puzzle aspect. And the design is just like the old windows game, which is great! However, the ads are my only complaint with this game. They pop up too often and take a while to be able to skip, as the ad won’t put up the little white X until halfway into the ad. I also would not mind paying to get rid of the ads but I do not want a subscription. Most apps will do a one time fee and the game is considered to be purchased and ads are removed. However that option is not offered here. I would give it 5 stars if not for that.
FreeCell
by Findafire on 2018/05/31 14:38
Enjoy playing the game to sharpen what ever dim witts I have! Dislike the adds and their somewhat cunning ways to X out of them. It has almost become as sometimes challenging as the game, I.e. like colored x’s in the image, when being searched by the older less sighted humans on a smaller screen, that gravitate to solitary games, cute! The automatic placement of cards in that crucial move counting daily goals game just refreshes the life’s lesson of our having choices and taking them wisely and if not knowing that only we are to blame. There’s more to this then meets the eye! Will you ever run out of titles for accomplishments? It’s another fun part of the FreeCell experience!
Daily challenge a plus
by janprint on 2019/06/06 13:36
This game keeps improving. It’s more than just playing a game of FreeCell. I love the daily challenges (which I believe started in February 2019) and collecting crowns throughout the month. Combining that with the daily goals, and trying to win all 3 in one hand is the super-challenge. the challenges/goals also teach me to play with different strategies, (ie, moving no more than 2 cards at a time, or getting a Jack on the home pile within 75 moves, etc). And I have my favorite background—my pet bird staring back at me—to greet me when I play. The game is fun and relaxing. Thanks!
Love the app!! Needs some tweaking.
by wtxvolunteer on 2018/06/18 23:45
Very good app!! However it needs some tweaking. 1. Ads: Know it costs money to develop these apps. However, when you “X” out of an ad, that should be it!!! Not having to “X” out a second or more times to get rid of the bear or baldy. Also, have the X in the same place, not switching sides. Additionally “CrossXInstall” needs to change names....have blindly hit the X in the name. 2. Auto move: If there is two possible moves for card(s), and the auto-move feature is used, it should ask which one. Too many times, it doesn’t move to the more logical location and then you have to waste a move to replace it. 3. Game game numbers. One previous comment, stated that there should be a game number and the difficulty level shown. It would be nice to have un-winable games removed, or the ability for the players to request they not be shown. Once again a great app...just needs tweaking.
Nice solid Freecell implementation
by ThreapUSA on 2019/09/03 05:19
I’ve been playing this for a few years now. It’s a good implementation of Freecell, and it’s obvious that a lot of work has gone into it. However, the adverts are annoying (and painfully irrelevant). I appreciate that the developers have to make a living, so when an option to “pay to remove ads” appeared in the latest version, I thought “why not? I’ll chip in a couple of bucks”. Nope. Boy, did I get a shock. Sorry, developers, but NO phone card game applet (no matter how well written) is worth $5 per month. As a one-off fee, sure. But not recurring. It’s Freecell for goodness’ sakes, not a magazine subscription or a VPN service!
Terrible ads
by amberwaves100 on 2020/05/01 16:21
The game is fun and addictive. I enjoy the animation and sounds (though they can be turned off). I listen to audiobooks while I play and play for hours. Most of the ads are unobtrusive and only last five seconds. The problem is there are select ads (i.e. Tik Tok) that cut off my audiobook so I have to leave the app to turn my book back on. Having to leave the app every two-five minutes is a real nuisance. Also, these ads that cut off the audiobook are also obnoxiously loud and noisy. I’ve repeatedly reported the problem. One time they said they would report the ad as inappropriate. The other dozen times the apologize but do nothing to fix the problem.
New version review
by Lutherbastow on 2018/12/14 09:07
One of the things that I liked about the old version was total won without a loss. I was just over 400 and was taking a break, the game had become a little boring, a few times, when you upgraded. This new version I have had a little more difficulty with, could be tougher in general or I lucked out with some of the more difficult configurations or I’m not as good as I used to be. Whatever the reason I am back at it still looking for the elusive 3 minute game and I do like the changes that you have made. Thanks
Minor issue
by Amanda fries on 2018/06/24 19:56
When a random deal is selected, why can I then NOT view the number of that deal? If I want to share the deal number with a friend and challenge them on one that I found especially difficult, or simply check it against the lists of "extremely difficult" or "unbeatable" deals, (let's say I've tried for quite some time to win, and can't) I can not. Seems like an easy fix. Maybe in subsequent versions? Please? Otherwise, LOVE this game! (I can put up with the ads, you have a business to run. I get that.) Thanks!
What the hell is going on!?
by Dollar Dance on 2018/11/04 02:54
8/10 times when I'm playing a game, I'm doing it while attempting(attempting!) to listen to something. On rare occasions, it's music. Commonly, it's a podcast. Whether it be from a website, or an app, there's always interference. The podcast stops when an add can't be muted, or isn't muted fast enough. Or lately, either when I'm in the middle of a game, and an ad randomly starts playing, or after a hand has been dealt, and I move the first card. Then I have to restart the podcast, it plays for a few seconds, only to stop again. Is this by design? Is it a glitch? Is it just me?
Fun game but ads require too much effort
by xyz xyz123567 on 2020/01/17 21:40
I like Free Cell a lot. However, the ads are becoming more and more intrusive and annoying. An unwanted ad always comes up before each Free Cell hand, on replays as well as new deals. Most of the ads require several seconds of viewing before finally presenting an “x” to escape, and then a second version of the same ad immediately appears, also requiring the user to find and click an x to escape. I understand the ads are necessary but can’t they be less obtrusive?
Some ads refuse to go away
by Aesteria on 2019/09/28 01:35
This is a decent free cell app. However there are ads that do not time out or allow you to close them. “Better Me” is an example. It insists that I must click on the App Store links to download an app that is going to help me walk away fat, and even then the ad will not go away. My only option is to shut down and restart my device or forget about playing free cell. There are occasional pop ups that tell me I can report these rogue advertisers via some function in settings, but I have been unable to identify such a tool. This problem is so annoying that it takes all the fun out of using the app and playing free cell. I have not had this issue with any other “free” game app, including the Spider solitaire offered by this company.
Love playing the game
by Ivehadenuff! on 2018/03/20 09:17
I’ve been playing the game for quite a while. Recently the ads have been defaulting to a white screen with no recourse but to close the app, delete the white screen, then reopen the app. One problem, if you’re trying to win the previous game the replay game does not bring up the game you were previously playing. Or, if you are just trying to play a new game you may get the white screen again (see recourse above) this is very disrupting. I thought it would resolve itself. It’s now been two weeks and I’m beginning to get VERY frustrated. Please fix, or at least don’t run these particular ads as it reflects poorly on your product. My rating has moved from 5 stars down to two.
Version 4.3.0 graphics
by Bj28$ on 2018/02/21 23:43
This recent update changed the graphics to be much brighter but ironically the shapes of the care suites are harder to distinguish. Hearts and diamonds look very similar; clubs and spades look very similar. The suite icons are larger but almost blurry so don't have distinct shapes. The intense brightness makes me need to keep looking away to rest my eyes. For me, this changes a solid 5-star game down to a 4-star. Can you give me an option to restore the older graphics, which were very clear and distinct, and more relaxing to look at? Otherwise, this is still the best Freecell game out there. Thanks.
In 2002 it began as therapy
by Hollywhiteside on 2020/09/01 13:55
I first started playing MobilityWare FreeCell in 2002 to give my spirit a boost during 6 months of chemo. I tried all of the Freecells and this was best. It has a very natural look and feel. When I won the game it used to give me the sound of a crowd cheering, which gave me a rush of good feeling. And I would imagine that the creative card patterns flipping around at the end were celebrating ME! Since then I have played it a few times every day, and it never is boring. There has never been a particular deal that I couldn't win eventually with replays. As I played, I noticed my strategies and it became a way of learning about myself. I even wrote a page-long essay called Life Lessons I Learned From FreeCell. I would be so grateful if the designers could put back the cheering at the end. The dancing card man is incredibly BRILLIANT! I’d love to see more by that designer. I Love my MobilityWare FreeCell. Holly Whiteside
Advertisements make Mobility games unplayable
by Meszria on 2019/02/19 20:44
I have Mobility Freecell, Spider, and Solitaire on my device, and they are my favorite games EXCEPT they now allow ads that will not let you play the games. There is a Publishers Clearing House movie ad that plays for about a minute, and when it is done it does not let you go back to the game. If you shut down and come back in, it just shows up again and puts you in an endless loop. If you are lucky enough to not get that ad when you start up, it might pop up in the middle of a game and you're done. I have contacted Mobility about this several times and they said their ads have to pass some strict rules, but sometimes an ad slips through. This game is now unplayable. This one doesn't meet my requirements.
Great version of FreeCell
by Fred the Viking on 2017/08/06 02:01
A great version of FreeCell. It is a favorite game of mine and has done it all right. It has has challenges and hints. An auto complete when the game is clearly won. The only real weakness with this app is the ads. The ads are rarely interesting to me and come up at the end of every game. I have yet to find a good paid version of the FreeCell so I guess it something I have been able to accept. If it were not for the ads I would give 5 stars. It is a free app but the ads are so annoying that I personally would prefer to pay but I have no options to do so.

In the past week or so, the game crashes my iPad. I had 4 games and played the daily challenges (I never lost a game and yet it didn’t score that way) something happened with the software and I had to delete them. So if I redownload I start from scratch. No biggy .

by What I think about this on 2021/02/19 11:11
The game has become buggy. It will randomly reset although it appears to happen mostly when an alarm or some other app interrupts. I enjoy playing the game. I like that they added the ability to play the games in sequence and now it evens keeps the next game in memory when not played for a while. (It now sometimes replays a completed game.) Some of the commercials don’t seem to adhere to the 5 sec. rule.

It’s My Favorite
by Megawatt1944 on 2021/02/11 01:13
Of all the solitaires offered, I like FreeCell the best. I like games where you can go out if you play well. It’s a waste of time to play a game when you never had a chance of going out. FreeCell is the most challenging of all the solitaires, and since you can see the face of every card, is perfect for applying strategy. Pyramid can be unsolvable no matter what you do (Daily Challenge excepted) or too easy. Because you can’t see the face-down cards, Crown and TriPeaks don’t give that much scope for strategy, although the runs are rewarding. Solitaire and Castle are fun, but not as challenging as FreeCell. I’ve tried the others offered by MobilityWare, but found them simplistic, not complicated enough. MegaWatt

I like FreeCell, except when ads override silent mode
by Klingon725 on 2021/02/07 16:36
I have enjoyed playing FreeCell, and understand the need for ads since I’m playing the free version. However, sometimes (and unpredictably, ads will blare out with audible sound, even though I have my iPhone set on Silent mode. I would GREATLY appreciate if this can be fixed, since I do not care for these random occurrences. I have my phone set to Silent (using the hard Mute button on the side of my phone) for a reason, namely that I do not want to disturb anyone who may be within earshot while I am using my device.

Ads that ABSOLUTELY disorient you
by Player75757575 on 2021/02/04 06:03
Absolutely HATE the ads TO NO END that come up in landscape mode when you’re playing in portrait mode. Makes the experience extremely confusing and it’s just easier to crash the app than to try to navigate through it. Might just delete the app if this persists. Also HATE the ads that kill the music you’re listening to and hog your phone.

Stop the Ad sound/music PLEASE!!!
by Fabey babey on 2021/01/30 11:42
While on a subway or in a class room environment I like to listen to my “music” without interruption and while trying to relax but I can no longer do that because the Ads starts after each game with its own quirky style of cheap slot machine music. Sometimes the sound from the Ads “turn off” my music forcing me to shut down the app just to turn my music back on. Therefore, when this happens I just stop playing the solitaire game. There’s other apps out there that are just as good so stay away from this app unless you like Ads interruption your music play. Freaking annoying!!!!!!

by JustMiceElf on 2019/04/14 12:41
I have loved this game since I first played it back in the day on my computer. I love this app because it gives me the same great game on my phone, with the addition of daily goals. As a software tester I truly appreciate the quality. I tried other FreeCell apps and deleted them all before finding this one. If there was one thing I would add to the game though, I would love to know the numbers of the games I have lost, so that I could go back and try again. Update: I did contact support but for the sake of the review readers, I will explain the feature I would like to see. If you go to settings > statistics you can see how many games you have won and lost. My request is, if you play numbered games (yes, I started at 1) that you be able to see the game numbers of the games you lost so that you could try them again. The feature would not work for randomly generated games as they have no numbers. Bonus if winning a previously lost game would erase the count in the lost column. :D
Great for the mind and competition.

Fee cell is the first game my wife and I played on a computer. This was back in early 1990 I cannot remember exactly the year. We played the game in succession and would play it together. When of us would see a move we would talk it out and decide which move to make next. I can’t remember what number we got to, but eventually things changed in our lives and we became to busy to play. We are retired now and have started playing again only now we play on our own phones, but we challenge each other to see who has the highest game. We have never found a game that we could not solve. We have known each other for 51 years and have been married for 48 years. We don’t know if our lives will change again and will stop playing again or not, but for now it’s a great way to pass time and more importantly use our minds and that’s really great.
Some Ads Do Not Close
by PCHomepage on 2019/10/18 05:54
While I expect a free app to support itself with ads, I do have problem when some have no facility to close them, especially when the ad itself is in poor taste to the point of being disgusting. When it happens, the only way around it is to force the app to close, then open it again. My patience, though, is not unlimited so if it happens again, I’ll be removing the app from my device and cut off the revenue channel. No way I would consider purchasing an app that allows that sort of thing and that they are third-party ads is no excuse nor would I ever buy a subscription. On top of that, even with the sound muted, some still play it loudly and there are several that no matter what you say, it takes you to the App Store. Others, when clicked to close, open another version of the ad with the close X in a different location so it’s almost a game in itself about how to close the ads! There are some without any way whatsoever to close them short of forcing the app to close. Support did write to me about this revue but there was no way I could reply through the app and the email did not provide a legitimate reply.
Perfect No-Brain Game
by striderepiphany on 2020/02/03 23:36
I love FreeCell because I can pay attention to things I’m listening to like a podcast while being able to keep my hands busy. For this I can use any form of Solitaire, but I like FreeCell because it’s just hard enough to be challenging but easy enough so I don’t get frustrated or lose focus from what I’m listening to. I also like this app in particular because the ads are never longer than a couple seconds if you can’t skip them entirely, which is a problem I have run into with other puzzle games. I also like the goals/level system, because it’s completely useless but it’s still fun to do the daily challenges and watch your level go up. I think I’ve been getting points just to see how far the titled levels go, so far I’m an “Associate Poobah” on level 420 which is just delightful. How many titles are there. Am I going to die trying to find out. We shall see.
Problem Solving Practice
by Mrs English Grammar on 2018/12/12 11:24
When I was teaching 7th grade in the public school I always included Problem Solving Skills. Basically they are the same as Scientific Theory taught in 7th grade Science. Teaching it from a little different approach reinforced. Once the problem is thoroughly identified of all its parts, the #2 step is to make a list of all the possible things one could do in an effort to solve. We sometimes call this brain storming. Leave no possibility unlisted because two may have to be combined to make the solution. Use the list to carefully consider each possibility. Look for why one will not work and gradually eliminate until you have only one or two remaining for Step 3. If neither are obviously usable by now, try one and then the other. Choose the solution, in Step 4, by which one works best. If this one does not solve, repeat steps 2 and 3. Step 5 is to put your solution into effect and make it work. It may need adjustments or another’s advice. Always believe in yourself and know you can. There is a solution for every problem. FreeCell is a perfect practice for developing this skill. It is fun to play and even allows Steps 4 & 5. Students can play a game while learning. For me, now that I am retired and my thinking skills or memory sometimes fails me, FreeCell helps me stay sharp. It’s a brain exercise , if you will !
Review- I have one gripe
by Feustrated on 2018/06/04 00:01
I play and I don’t like to loose so if I get stuck I use undo a lot. I want to win even if I get a low score. I would rather win with a low score than try to start over because that counts as a loss. My gripe is that I had a winning streak of 983 whipped out because my finger brushed against the wrong button. I was winning the game , but I had to put the phone down and do something else. When I got back to the game One of the pop up adds came up and I had a hard time of getting rid of it. When the game came back it went to the screen that gives the chose of games. I went to cancel that screen and accidentally brushed against the numbered deal and started the next game. Of course it counted the game that was interrupted as a loss and ended my win streak. You are allowed to undo other mistakes, but that one is fatal. Can you add the option that gives a warning that what you did will end the winning streak and allow for a corrective action??? The same thing happened to me when I built the winning streak to over 950. I was so mad I quite parlaying for a week or more and recently I had gotten it up to over 550 and I frankly don’t know what happened but when I looked I had a winning streak of 6. I quite playing for several weeks and now I have a rousing winning streak of 7. When the opportunity came up to write a review——I took it.
Fantastic! + Suggestion
by Gardenovena on 2020/03/31 15:09
I LOVE this game! As others have said, it is so polished and easy to use, and you can just tell that they truly keep the player in mind in the design. Also, just a darn fun game! Since you guys ask for feedback on one of the splash screens, I have a suggestion—for the Daily Challenges, it would be nice if the goals that have a limit would have a count down. Some Challenges like “get 40 Spades to the foundation” will count your progress so far, but when there is a limit there isn’t really an indication if you are trying to squeeze it in. For example, one of today’s was “win any game with less than 15 cards moved to the freecells”. At some point I realised I might make this goal but I wasn’t keeping count so I didn’t know how conservative I had to be with the freecells! Maybe a bar that unfills rather than fills? Maybe a red bar? Thank you for reading!
Freecell is my favorite kill time app.
by Rickonwallerville on 2017/08/26 17:52
The way I play free-cell is by allowing my phone to select the next game and if I cannot win, I back until I have a whole deck and play until I win. Some games are tough and take a good number or repeats. There are a few games that are un- winnable and when I am having a particularly difficult game I wonder if I am in one of those. But there is no way to know what game you are in. So in my list of improvements would be showing the game you are playing and possibly rating it on a difficulty scale. In this way I would 1, know if a game is un winnable, and 2, help me see how well my gaming compares to others by seeing how difficult a game is. As far as adds, there is a way to kill them off so If they really bother someone pay for the game. If you are intelligent enough to play freecell you should be able to figure out that nothing is free!
Updating my review...
by Ad aspera on 2019/07/22 18:10
I previously left a 2-star review because the ads had gotten out of hand. The developers replied to my review and asked me to submit screenshots of ads that couldn’t be closed. I have noticed since then that the ads are more manageable. I understand that ads are a fact of life for free app. I’m just thankful that I can now close them after a few seconds instead of having to watch a 30 second ad that can’t be closed. —————————————— Ads, Ads, Ads! So many ads that I’m playing this game less and less. There’s and ad between every game, and while it used to be that you could X out of an ad once it started, it now seems most of the ads are timed at 30 seconds and you can’t exit out of them. I understand the need for ads on a free app, but no other game app I use has as many ads as mobilityware.
Fix the maddening instability!!!
by Senator503 on 2020/07/12 14:12
Ever since version 5.3.3 this game has become so unstable it is nearly unplayable. It takes 30 to 40 seconds to load before allowing you to start the game. It then freezes 15 to 30 seconds into the game for another half a minute or so. But the most aggravating “feature” is when it crashes completely without warning without saving your progress. Imagine how happy that makes me when I have been painstakingly searching for a solution on a difficult game only to have it crash and take me back to the start. I would have given 5 stars before v5.3.3, but now I will not play it again until I see there’s a new version. Fix this please!!! Update: Instability finally fixed with 5.4.0 update. The game is fun to play again.
Classic game, too many ads
by Sgirl2 on 2018/08/19 02:12
This game is just as I remembered playing on my old desktop PC. The game has no bugs and is customizable. There are daily goals to keep the game fresh. However, I deducted stars for the frequency of game ads. Between every game there are two ads, and even when I switch between “random”, “winning deal” and “numbered deal” there are ads. Sometimes the goals require winning a certain numbered deal, and it infuriates me when there is an ad between reading the goal and and selecting a numbered deal because I have to worry about forgetting the deal number. While it’s not a huge deal, it does become annoying very quickly. This is especially true since the game won’t play if you aren’t connected to the internet since this prevents the ads from loading. If there were a paid version I’d happily pay a dollar or two to not have to deal with the stupid ads. Either provide a paid version or reduce the amount of ads.
Best Time Waster Ever!
by Reb Bacchus on 2019/12/10 21:20
This is the best time waster I’ve ever seen. I’ve been playing for several years and have won at least 6,000 games between the free and paid version. BTW the paid version is more than worth the cost. One “feature” I wish it didn’t have is the ability to wipe your record. No, that’s not fair, I just wish I had used the option to save some of my history. Currently I’ve got a little over 2,000 wins, all with the top score when I finished. I have 2 losses, that I can’t explain because I’ve never intentionally left a game without winning. Okay so one game took over 3 hours to win… remember what I said about time wasters? At least I’m retired so I’m not playing on someone else’s nickel. Bottom line, I love this game and this version!
FreeCell
by Freecell Ellie on 2019/02/02 20:54
I have become totally addicted to this game. However, it began to freeze up after playing a number of games. I’d wait for several hours or until the next day. It would work for awhile, but it would freeze again. This went on for awhile, but I was thrilled to reach level 20. When a suggestion came up to change the background to a different theme, I chose Valentine’s Day. It worked for awhile and then totally froze up. I waited until the next day but it was still frozen. I ended up deleting it, although I knew I all my hard achieved levels would be gone. I am enjoying playing the game again, but very annoyed because of the freezing issues. Are there any suggestions to keep this from happening? I am playing on an iPhoneX.
Love this Game !!
by AKSnowdrift on 2018/07/02 06:56
It really makes my brain do some work. I used to play it on my computer then in spare time at work or on breaks. Then I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and had to leave work because of problems with it. I now have it installed on my cell phone and sometimes it’s a challenge for me but it makes me think. I don’t win them all (short term memory loss because of the Fibromyalgia and meds I have to take. Thank God pot is legal in Alaska again. It really helps too) but I have always enjoyed this game!! I was so glad I found your app. Now I can have something to do when hubby is binge watching NCIS on tv. It really makes me think about how to make my next move, which is a great thing! I can’t thank you enough for this app!!
The very first, best game I’ve ever put on my iPad!
by WhiteHouseSW on 2018/03/01 22:21
When I bought my very first iPad 2, lo these many moons ago, this was the first game I downloaded and played. Now both that iPad2 and this Solitaire game are a little older and, while I no longer use that iPad very often (it’s in emergency spare status), I still play this game. There have been little tweaks along the way to make a better presentation, true, but I enjoy the familiar screens, the stability of the app, and the options for the cards, decks and background. This game has never gotten stale or boring. This remains an EXCELLENT GAME & app! My appreciation is offered to the developers for not overdoing the changes and maintaining such a high level of understanding what the users want. Really, an exceptional job!
Ads are the worst
by First baby abcdefg on 2019/08/18 04:42
I have used this app now for more than 3 years. The Ads were fine in the beginning (I honestly am not sure there were ads when I first downloaded it?). Now some of them were extremely inappropriate (I.e. violent) and multiple ads btwn games which were difficult to close and opened another unwanted window for the ad. Also some ads play very loud sounds unexpectedly which you cannot control. Woke my baby or spouse up. I’ll be looking for another app. This one has run its course. To any potential downloader, you can now purchase an option to avoid ads but it’s a pricey monthly subscription. I’d rather just purchase the game. Most of the recent updates were unnecessary and unwanted. I received zero customer service when I encountered an update where they took away a feature. Took them more than a year to put it back. Just overall not good in my humble opinion.
Annoying glitches
by Curmudgeon1943 on 2020/11/28 13:09
Overall, this is a great game and my main go-to game. However after several years of playing there are two glitches that have annoyed me. First is the “trophy” award system. Trophies are awarded through the daily challenge portion of the game. However, at least in my case after filling in many months, the only awards that get logged are the first level “copper” ones. After over 624 crowns none of the silver or gold trophies are logged. Second glitch: I am now more than halfway through the second cycle of level titles. I reached the “tableau titan II” level and then at the next level the game bounced me back about 20 levels. I was working to Make it through the “II” title level and now find I was bounced back by about 60 games. I’d like a programmer or tech manager at the company to address these issues. Thanks.
It’s My Favorite
by Megawatt1944 on 2021/02/11 01:13
Of all the solitaires offered, I like FreeCell the best. I like games where you can go out if you play well. It’s a waste of time to play a game when you never had a chance of going out. FreeCell is the most challenging of all the solitaires, and since you can see the face of every card, is perfect for applying strategy. Pyramid can be unsolvable no matter what you do (Daily Challenge excepted) or too easy. Because you can’t see the face-down cards, Crown and TriPeaks don’t give that much scope for strategy, although the runs are rewarding. Solitaire and Castle are fun, but not as challenging as FreeCell. I’ve tried the others offered by MobilityWare, but found them simplistic, not complicated enough. MegaWatt
As much as I love the game, Grrrrr
by Suzy's pix on 2019/08/16 03:30
I’ve had to uninstall this app one time due to slowing and crashing. I reinstalled this app starting from scratch saving nothing, and all went well, until I got over level 100, then it started crashing again. Each time I started a game, it’s been taking longer and longer for the ad to appear, then once the ad was completed, and up, it took a frustrating amount of time until I was able to move the cards again. That didn’t include when the screen froze. If it were my tablet, I could understand, but just this app? I have my serious doubts. I’ll just move on to another app, hopefully I don’t have a repeat frustrating experience.
Obnoxious ads ruin this app.
by we're in Cardiff!?! on 2020/07/09 12:58
Ugh. The ads in this app are outrageously invasive. Some are loud, obnoxious & unwelcome - especially when you're playing in bed when you can't sleep. With this app, no one sleeps. Some ads don't allow you to pass over them - you have to play the game they're trying to sell you first. Some have an 'X' so you can skip the ad, but it's misplaced so instead of closing the ad, it hijacks you to their website or to the app store & shares your info (IP addy, location & who knows what else) with the advertiser. This is a very lucrative "glitch" because the app owners can report an excellent return on investment to their paying advertisers by showing how many clicks their ads got - forget the fact that we haven't clicked willingly. Ridiculous. P.S. Want to skip the obnoxious ads? Shut the app after reloading the game and open it again. More often than not that actually takes less time to do than to wait to skip the ad.
Love this game, but.....
by jerrysp005 on 2020/01/05 03:09
I have playing this game for a couple of years. Occasionally an ad plays that is hard to close. Today, Jan 4th 2020, an add for 3D sniper plays, that is totally inappropriate for anyone playing a solitaire card game. Also to ad does not have any way to close it and return to the FreeCell game. The only way is to force close freecell and app center because it opens that too, and any other web page that often opens that tries to advertise this rubbish. That’s right, it plays violent R rated stuff and does not have ANY way to close or shut it off. I will reluctantly be NOT playing freecell until this revolting rubbish is removed. I probably should not even be promoted by Apple!
Betty’s Luck.
by swiftymama on 2018/01/09 11:54
I LOVE this game. Can’t believe it took me a while to catch on but boy when I did I became addicted. My favorite thing was teaching my mom to play. It quickly became her favorite pastime activity. she took to it like a duck to water and had so much fun. She kept track of her favorite games and we swapped notes and passed along the game numbers!! Thank you so very much that!!! This is fabulous for insomnia too. Gets your mind off whatever’s bugging you!!! Sweet!!! I hope there’s some Freecell in Heaven because it sure was an innocent but happy, rewarding, mind sharpening, relaxing, quick, time filling, anti lonely, FUN, witty, and pleasurable game time for how ever much time you had!!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU
Too many aggressive ads
by olemansteve on 2019/08/03 23:17
The free version of this game was excellent. I have used this game as brain exercise for several years. The downside is the trend toward the increasing aggressiveness, and frequency of the ads. Now, most game starts require watching 2 ads that have a time delay up to ~30 seconds before allowing it to be skipped. There are of late, new ads that not only have a skip delay - they also open the app store to the advertised app to download. Add to that, a glitch(?) that requires several attempts to close the app store to start the new game. I understand there is a paid version of the app. Downside: the free version stats are NOT transferred to paid version. I am currently trying to find the paid version to see how much it cost - nothing so far. There is a link in support, but it didn’t work for me. Definitely uninstalling the annoying free version. If the paid one cost too much, I’ll go with a friendlier developer.
Angry Glitch
by Mommeeeeeeeeeeeeee on 2018/10/01 00:51
I have been a fan of Mobilityware for years. I have played FreeCell for about 12. Huge fan! But today I noticed a glitch. Maybe it was there before Maybe not. I had two sets of five cards that I could move. One set would have reduce the line of cards in that row. The second set could have been added to the cards in that row. But my goal was to decrease the cards, not increase them. The system wanted me to increase the cards and would not allow me to move the other five cards to an open space. A little disappointed as the only games I play are Mobilityware games. Reason: few problems, well thought out, and easy to navigate.
Update needs a bug fix
by gjheign on 2018/12/08 14:05
I don’t remember when I got my first iPhone but I have been playing Free Cell for several years. I just recently did the update and I’m really not very happy with some of the problems such as: making a selection to play one of the goal games and then having the screen go totally blank and nothing happens!! Having to get out of the game and totally clear/close the program and then go back in and make your selection all over again!! It’s frustrating having the ads come pop up and difficult at times to get rid of them!! Hopefully you will be able to get these bugs fixed real soon!!!!
A few adjustments needed
by Tasteful & True on 2017/11/21 15:58
The actual game of free cell is great, I just think the app needs a few adjustments. For one, each time you go up a level the required “coins” you need to get to the next level should be in increments of twenty-five. After playing for a while in the thousand coins needed range, I began to wonder why I would have sums like 233 or 108. I decided to reset my statistics and find out. It’s because of levels like the Hobbyist (starting on level 11) with a needed sum of 678 that these coins get thrown off. I just get bothered by it and would be very grateful if it was corrected. Also, if it could be more like the regular solitaire game when auto completing (each level goes in on its own and all the kings go in last when there are no queens left) that would be great as well.
Calming freecell
by jczeroxy1994 on 2020/08/31 02:47
This is the best freecell app ever. It gives you the option to be bright and flashy or not. I play this before bed every night and it’s perfect because I mindlessly tap away. I keep the animation and hints to a minimum, the screen can be locked so you can comfortably play on your side, the ads are only 5 seconds long in between games (ads a re a must to keep it free but they don’t pop up randomly during play) and best of all it’s full screen and doesn’t show the time!! That’s beneficial because I like to play until my eyes are heavy and if I see the time that can cause anxiety before bed. Plus the statistics are really thorough. Great app!!!
Granddaddy’s Favorite Pastime
by Dixiebelle33 on 2018/07/31 20:38
My grandfather played card games in his last days back in the 1940s. I remember he spent a lot of time shuffling the decks. Wish he had been able to enjoy your version and all the marvels of the electronics we enjoy today. He would probably dance a jig not having to shuffle and deal the many games he played! Playing this game is really a neat way to keep the old brain sharp! He could have played thousands more if he could have laid out the cards with the push of a key. He was the most brilliant person I’ve ever know, and he was sharp as a tack until the end. Hope my DNA and Free Cell does as well for me!
Subscription was a deal breaker
by On54r on 2019/08/16 18:50
I liked the app but way too many ads. I was hoping they would add a way to give them some money to get rid of ads, but when they recently added the premium mode that was a subscription model I promptly deleted the whole app. This type of game has no good reason to be on a recurring subscription. —- Later update - I found the game, same developer and same features, as a paid app for $5 which I was fine with paying. If they would have offered the no ads version as an in-app purchase they would have had my $5 months ago. The subscription model on this one just angered me, and finding that it is merely a tax on the lazy makes me come back and lower the rating here. Pick this for the free with ads, if you’re going to pay go find the other version.
Portland Doula Julie
by Portland Doula Julie on 2018/07/28 05:52
I am totally dependent on my Free Cell phone game for keeping me calm when my life gets too stressful. I can go immediately into “ the zone” and everything else on my To-Do List fades away. I would love to play competitively by randomly picking a number and having two people start playing the same game at the same time. But so far, I haven’t found anyone willing. (I’m at Level 927 now, I think.) My brother in R.I. (I’m in Oregon) plays strategically, and thoughtfully, so has a 100% record of solving the games. I like to play fast and furiously, so have only around a 70-something, or maybe an 80-something % solution record. I can’t remember. (I’m 78, and my husband and I are about to celebrate our 50th Anniversary (a small miracle, since we are probably the most incompatible couple on the planet!). He is committed to his computer cribbage game so has zero interest in Free Cell. Too bad. He would be a worthy opponent.) Our kids know that if my Free Cell malfunctions, they MUST come immediately to the rescue!!!
Challenging But Fun
by Carrie77409 on 2017/09/24 06:00
I love Mobility Free Cell Game. It is not only fun to sit down at any unexpected/unknown venue and play one of these games to pass one's unexpected excess time but to challenge your mind in solving these puzzles. To me, the lacking part of the designers/developers of the software is in the accomplishments of obtaining a new level e.g. from Level 23 to Level 24; okay but I do not believe at this time, one can go past Level 39 - even if they have accomplished reaching goals beyond that. I had done over 90 games & the game reset itself to a lower level in the 30's. But despite all - I still enjoy very much the challenge of these puzzles.
Great game But malfunctioning ads ruin it.
by Tobiath on 2018/02/20 20:11
I've played this version of FreeCell for as long as FreeCell has been out, it's always been great. Something has changed, though, and not for the better. I keep getting ads that either don't have any content and lock up my phone so I have to shut it down and reboot or they play in the middle of a game while the game is going the ad is going – – very distracting and annoying – – or I have to sit and listen for 15 to 30 seconds with no opportunity to cancel the ad before I can play. If I game takes between two and four minutes, I'm spending way too much of my time watching ads. I make a point of not buying anything in those ads. Even so, It's gotten to where I simply have no desire to play. Nice way to ruin a really good game, guys.
Good app
by Kdbeidbdj on 2017/12/18 06:42
The game of FreeCell is great, but this rating is for the app. It’s simple, there are definitely ads but in my opinion they are minimal, and I can’t complain since it’s free. There are plenty of options to choose from so you can play the way you want, and the daily goals make it just that much more fun, to keep me hooked. I also like how they track statistics. You can play offline which is nice. Overall, it’s very well done. So well done that I have wasted entire days playing this game. The app asked me to rate it and I figured I owed at least that much to them, so there you go.
Good game, could improve
by M_Shelby094 on 2021/01/09 17:48
I really enjoy this game and play it nearly every day. I like the puzzle aspect. And the design is just like the old windows game, which is great! However, the ads are my only complaint with this game. They pop up too often and take a while to be able to skip, as the ad won’t put up the little white X until halfway into the ad. I also would not mind paying to get rid of the ads but I do not want a subscription. Most apps will do a one time fee and the game is considered to be purchased and ads are removed. However that option is not offered here. I would give it 5 stars if not for that.
FreeCell
by Findafire on 2018/05/31 14:38
Enjoy playing the game to sharpen what ever dim witts I have! Dislike the adds and their somewhat cunning ways to X out of them. It has almost become as sometimes challenging as the game, I.e. like colored x’s in the image, when being searched by the older less sighted humans on a smaller screen, that gravitate to solitary games, cute! The automatic placement of cards in that crucial move counting daily goals game just refreshes the life’s lesson of our having choices and taking them wisely and if not knowing that only we are to blame. There’s more to this then meets the eye! Will you ever run out of titles for accomplishments? It’s another fun part of the FreeCell experience!
Daily challenge a plus
by janprint on 2019/06/06 13:36
This game keeps improving. It’s more than just playing a game of FreeCell. I love the daily challenges (which I believe started in February 2019) and collecting crowns throughout the month. Combining that with the daily goals, and trying to win all 3 in one hand is the super-challenge. the challenges/goals also teach me to play with different strategies, (ie, moving no more than 2 cards at a time, or getting a Jack on the home pile within 75 moves, etc). And I have my favorite background—my pet bird staring back at me—to greet me when I play. The game is fun and relaxing. Thanks!
Love the app!! Needs some tweaking.
by wtxvolunteer on 2018/06/18 23:45
Very good app!! However it needs some tweaking. 1. Ads: Know it costs money to develop these apps. However, when you “X” out of an ad, that should be it!!! Not having to “X” out a second or more times to get rid of the bear or baldy. Also, have the X in the same place, not switching sides. Additionally “CrossXInstall” needs to change names....have blindly hit the X in the name. 2. Auto move: If there is two possible moves for card(s), and the auto-move feature is used, it should ask which one. Too many times, it doesn’t move to the more logical location and then you have to waste a move to replace it. 3. Game game numbers. One previous comment, stated that there should be a game number and the difficulty level shown. It would be nice to have un-winable games removed, or the ability for the players to request they not be shown. Once again a great app...just needs tweaking.
Nice solid Freecell implementation
by ThreapUSA on 2019/09/03 05:19
I’ve been playing this for a few years now. It’s a good implementation of Freecell, and it’s obvious that a lot of work has gone into it. However, the adverts are annoying (and painfully irrelevant). I appreciate that the developers have to make a living, so when an option to “pay to remove ads” appeared in the latest version, I thought “why not? I’ll chip in a couple of bucks”. Nope. Boy, did I get a shock. Sorry, developers, but NO phone card game applet (no matter how well written) is worth $5 per month. As a one-off fee, sure. But not recurring. It’s Freecell for goodness’ sakes, not a magazine subscription or a VPN service!
Terrible ads
by amberwaves100 on 2020/05/01 16:21
The game is fun and addictive. I enjoy the animation and sounds (though they can be turned off). I listen to audiobooks while I play and play for hours. Most of the ads are unobtrusive and only last five seconds. The problem is there are select ads (i.e. Tik Tok) that cut off my audiobook so I have to leave the app to turn my book back on. Having to leave the app every two-five minutes is a real nuisance. Also, these ads that cut off the audiobook are also obnoxiously loud and noisy. I’ve repeatedly reported the problem. One time they said they would report the ad as inappropriate. The other dozen times the apologize but do nothing to fix the problem.
New version review
by Lutherbastow on 2018/12/14 09:07
One of the things that I liked about the old version was total won without a loss. I was just over 400 and was taking a break, the game had become a little boring, a few times, when you upgraded. This new version I have had a little more difficulty with, could be tougher in general or I lucked out with some of the more difficult configurations or I’m not as good as I used to be. Whatever the reason I am back at it still looking for the elusive 3 minute game and I do like the changes that you have made. Thanks
Minor issue
by Amanda fries on 2018/06/24 19:56
When a random deal is selected, why can I then NOT view the number of that deal? If I want to share the deal number with a friend and challenge them on one that I found especially difficult, or simply check it against the lists of "extremely difficult" or "unbeatable" deals, (let's say I've tried for quite some time to win, and can't) I can not. Seems like an easy fix. Maybe in subsequent versions? Please? Otherwise, LOVE this game! (I can put up with the ads, you have a business to run. I get that.) Thanks!
What the hell is going on!?
by Dollar Dance on 2018/11/04 02:54
8/10 times when I'm playing a game, I'm doing it while attempting(attempting!) to listen to something. On rare occasions, it's music. Commonly, it's a podcast. Whether it be from a website, or an app, there's always interference. The podcast stops when an add can't be muted, or isn't muted fast enough. Or lately, either when I'm in the middle of a game, and an ad randomly starts playing, or after a hand has been dealt, and I move the first card. Then I have to restart the podcast, it plays for a few seconds, only to stop again. Is this by design? Is it a glitch? Is it just me?
Fun game but ads require too much effort
by xyz xyz123567 on 2020/01/17 21:40
I like Free Cell a lot. However, the ads are becoming more and more intrusive and annoying. An unwanted ad always comes up before each Free Cell hand, on replays as well as new deals. Most of the ads require several seconds of viewing before finally presenting an “x” to escape, and then a second version of the same ad immediately appears, also requiring the user to find and click an x to escape. I understand the ads are necessary but can’t they be less obtrusive?
Some ads refuse to go away
by Aesteria on 2019/09/28 01:35
This is a decent free cell app. However there are ads that do not time out or allow you to close them. “Better Me” is an example. It insists that I must click on the App Store links to download an app that is going to help me walk away fat, and even then the ad will not go away. My only option is to shut down and restart my device or forget about playing free cell. There are occasional pop ups that tell me I can report these rogue advertisers via some function in settings, but I have been unable to identify such a tool. This problem is so annoying that it takes all the fun out of using the app and playing free cell. I have not had this issue with any other “free” game app, including the Spider solitaire offered by this company.
Love playing the game
by Ivehadenuff! on 2018/03/20 09:17
I’ve been playing the game for quite a while. Recently the ads have been defaulting to a white screen with no recourse but to close the app, delete the white screen, then reopen the app. One problem, if you’re trying to win the previous game the replay game does not bring up the game you were previously playing. Or, if you are just trying to play a new game you may get the white screen again (see recourse above) this is very disrupting. I thought it would resolve itself. It’s now been two weeks and I’m beginning to get VERY frustrated. Please fix, or at least don’t run these particular ads as it reflects poorly on your product. My rating has moved from 5 stars down to two.
Version 4.3.0 graphics
by Bj28$ on 2018/02/21 23:43
This recent update changed the graphics to be much brighter but ironically the shapes of the care suites are harder to distinguish. Hearts and diamonds look very similar; clubs and spades look very similar. The suite icons are larger but almost blurry so don't have distinct shapes. The intense brightness makes me need to keep looking away to rest my eyes. For me, this changes a solid 5-star game down to a 4-star. Can you give me an option to restore the older graphics, which were very clear and distinct, and more relaxing to look at? Otherwise, this is still the best Freecell game out there. Thanks.
In 2002 it began as therapy
by Hollywhiteside on 2020/09/01 13:55
I first started playing MobilityWare FreeCell in 2002 to give my spirit a boost during 6 months of chemo. I tried all of the Freecells and this was best. It has a very natural look and feel. When I won the game it used to give me the sound of a crowd cheering, which gave me a rush of good feeling. And I would imagine that the creative card patterns flipping around at the end were celebrating ME! Since then I have played it a few times every day, and it never is boring. There has never been a particular deal that I couldn't win eventually with replays. As I played, I noticed my strategies and it became a way of learning about myself. I even wrote a page-long essay called Life Lessons I Learned From FreeCell. I would be so grateful if the designers could put back the cheering at the end. The dancing card man is incredibly BRILLIANT! I’d love to see more by that designer. I Love my MobilityWare FreeCell. Holly Whiteside
Advertisements make Mobility games unplayable
by Meszria on 2019/02/19 20:44
I have Mobility Freecell, Spider, and Solitaire on my device, and they are my favorite games EXCEPT they now allow ads that will not let you play the games. There is a Publishers Clearing House movie ad that plays for about a minute, and when it is done it does not let you go back to the game. If you shut down and come back in, it just shows up again and puts you in an endless loop. If you are lucky enough to not get that ad when you start up, it might pop up in the middle of a game and you're done. I have contacted Mobility about this several times and they said their ads have to pass some strict rules, but sometimes an ad slips through. This game is now unplayable. This one doesn't meet my requirements.
Great version of FreeCell
by Fred the Viking on 2017/08/06 02:01
A great version of FreeCell. It is a favorite game of mine and has done it all right. It has has challenges and hints. An auto complete when the game is clearly won. The only real weakness with this app is the ads. The ads are rarely interesting to me and come up at the end of every game. I have yet to find a good paid version of the FreeCell so I guess it something I have been able to accept. If it were not for the ads I would give 5 stars. It is a free app but the ads are so annoying that I personally would prefer to pay but I have no options to do so.
