Too much ads

Don’t count on using the free option. The ads that pop up sometimes freeze the screen and can only be cleared by restarting your iPad.

Version changed
by Suze2you on 2020/12/01 17:19
Recently this app stopped opening for me, so I downloaded it again (IOS) and what I received looks like a very, very old version. Not the sleek version I was used to playing daily! What happened?
Long wait times
by mjvadventures on 2020/12/01 15:23
Even though I upgraded for the ad free version, I still have to wait through the ‘ad period’ before continuing with the game. So I may avoid the ads, but playing is not continuous. Increasingly, the wait time for the game to load seems even longer than having to put up with the ads. Time to look for another app I deleted and reinstalled the app which seems to have fixed the problem so I upgraded my rating. The app still occasionally freezes so no five stars yet.

I have been playing solitaire for three years now. It is always a challenge at the beginning and ending of each month, but it has always been fun and winning is great. Not sure why we build all the trophy’s and awards for, but it is fun to get them.

Used to like this
by AnnieGL7 on 2020/11/30 03:57
I used to like this app, but the updates are making it annoying to play. Now there's a levels bar at the top when you start a game that cannot be turned off, I can't get the daily challenge to go away, even after following the instructions. The overall look has changed recently too, I liked the old look better. I used to have the paid version on my phone as well as my iPad and the phone version switched to the free with ads version and I cannot restore my paid version without paying again, customer service has been unresponsive. I'm looking for something else. Used to be able buy an ad free game, but now it’s subscription only. The developers got greedy. I’m done with MobilityWare.
Ads are terrible
by Lgal217 on 2020/11/29 20:15
Even when an ad is not displayed, it interrupts my music and/or audiobooks with the audio from an ad. Not worth it.

I enjoy this pleasantly addictive game but lately when I tap New Deal I’ve been getting repeats. I’m starting to recognize them. What’s with that? I subscribe to the ad-free version.

Love it. Especially when you can receive helpful hints! That usually enables you to win the game! I think that even with the hints you lose too many games in a row!
Good Game
by Nellular on 2020/11/25 12:05
The game itself is fine except how the auto complete doesn’t play for your best interest. Also the x button on the ads don’t work a lot of the time. I will have to close the app after every game bc when I try to close the ad it takes me to the website. That’s wack. I didn’t come for all that.

I enjoy a challenging game of solitaire. My only complaint with this app & it’s a big one is periodically you will get several games in a row that are not possible to win. I’m not sure if it’s so they can run a specific number of ads or what but it’s extremely frustrating.

Sound in the ads
by graciepj on 2020/11/21 18:21
I put my phone on silent when playing so as to not disturb others. However the ads play with sound which defeats the purpose. Now I have to turn the volume down on my phone which is more annoying than just turning the sound off. Trying to play and not disturb either when in a waiting room. The ads playing with sound disturbs everyone around you.
Ad sounds
by hog.ryder on 2020/11/21 16:47
I have the sound turned off in the game and recently several of your ads come on with sound and I have to find the mute button then wait to close the ad. If this trend continues I will uninstall this game along with another from mobility ware that’s doing the same from my phone. I will tolerate the ads, but not being forced to listen to the ads when I’m supposedly given the option to mute the sound.

Excellent game !!!
When I say I want NO sounds....
by GOT247 on 2020/11/20 18:48
I mean it. The ads blaring when I have the game muted is deplorable. You can’t fix it?! It’s not brain surgery, guys. Fix it. 10/19/2020 Once again, I come forward, hat in hand, asking that you might fix the sounds/noises issues. Now, the ad music is playing while I’m playing the actual game. That’s the Lowe’s ad. The Sam’s club ad promoting their app (which I already have) gets stuck every single time, so I have to reboot. I don’t mind watching ads, I just don’t want any noise or sounds! I don’t know why your genius’ can’t figure this out. I hope people read these reviews. 11/20/2020 I hate you for not fixing the noises/sounds/audio on the ads. When I want quiet, I want quiet. I’m looking for a game that actually lets you be on silent mode.
Great fun!

The joy of card games
by NV. Angel on 2020/11/17 21:38

App is unusably slow
by emraged87 on 2020/11/17 17:22
I used to really like this app. It worked well, there was the occasional ad but nothing worse than what you get on other mobile games. However, in the past month, this app has become so slow and laggy that it is literally unusable. I draw, the cards flip halfway and then the app stalls for minutes at a time. The app stalls for AT LEAST 15 seconds anytime I try to do anything. Using this app is just an exercise in frustration now. Don’t get this app unless they fix this issue.
Very good application.

Starting over!
by ADubb777 on 2020/11/17 04:53
I absolutely love this game and play it very day. I was up to level 300+ when I lost my phone. When I logged back in on my new phone, I had to start over and could not pick up where I left off. So now I am on level 4 with no daily challenges and at the beginning. I wish there was a log on that would remember where we left off and can pick up no matter what device we are using. Also why is this review in black in on a dark shadowed background where you can hardly even see your words?! But nonetheless, I do love this game
Great!

Kills battery
by billy752 on 2020/11/17 01:55
The app itself is fine but it kills battery. For every game played it consumes about 3-5% of the battery and the cellphone gets super hot after a few minutes. Do not recommend.
The game itself is excellent. But....
by 1stCeye on 2019/04/14 01:38
.....I have a question about a ONE TIME OFFER-only offered now....it stated that I could have six months ad free for ONLY $2.99...Great says I....hen after I tap ok, up comes another screen stating this $2.99 is good for only 7 days and after will be charged every month for.......WHA.....? WHAT??? Huh?? Did I read something wrong here.....I am agreeing to Six months ad free for $2.99....so I canceled....Guess I lost that “one time offer on this screen”...I sort of have the habit of reading the fine print, but I cannot believe you would play games like this with your customers. Now, I would like an explanation, so I can get six months of no ads, but one of two thing ps will happen here...#1. You will answer this post. #2 No one in the world will ever see this reviews cause I just embarrassed you...so? I love this game, but marketing is gonna get in trouble......It seems as if my Mom forgot to teach me that I could move cards from the aces pile back into the stacks! Opening a way to move cards to get a win. I am learning that now, but my thick head keeps forgetting that...the golden glow helps remind me while no making me feel entirely stupid....I now have and SPIDER. THESE GAMES ARE SO PLEASANT TO PLAY. I curl up in my chair, sip my iced tea and just play. My Nana would have loved this....( when I am sure of what I am experiencin, I will cheerfully change this post....)😀😀😀
Changes are terrible...but (update)
by LivLou37 on 2019/01/25 17:52
UPDATE! The new changes are frustrating. I deleted this app and went in search of another. Tried several. Nothing. Not a single one even came close to this app. The features and customizable settings set this app a part from all others by far. I’ll just have to live with the terrible changes. This new layout has been out for several months now. I wanted to give it a real shot before writing a review. I HATE it. Where to start? The new Daily Challenge calendar is hard to see the crowns with or without jewels. The stupid bar at the bottom showing progress to the next ugly trophy is just a waste of time and is just another thing between seeing my stats for that deal. The level ups is fine but again another thing between me and the stats. If I miss a day on the daily challenge, there is no easy way to get to it if I view my stats from the game I just played. If I view the stats, I have to go to menu then wait for the calendar to load and then I get an ad to finally play the next game. It’s TOO much. That was my favorite part of this app before the whole revamp, it was simple. I can play my game without all the other hype. I’m seriously considering deleting this app for one of the hundreds of other solitaire apps. I’m so disappointed. I play this game daily and usually multiple times a day, but not anymore. Don't get me wrong, it needed updates, but not a complete revamp with unnecessary features.
Addicting Solitaire!!!
by Coin collecter on 2017/09/25 13:25
I love this app for Solitaire! I have tried other apps but this one is my favorite by far. The automatic movement of a card for placing it to the Aces and also the board by just tapping it is a great feature! Other apps that I've tried make you hold onto the card and manually move it to the place you want. Some other apps are hard to see on an iPhone because the cards are too small. I like that you can change the card faces and backs because you can choose one that's easier to see. Also, changing the background boards makes it more interesting. Right now I am using the autumn scene, it's a nice change for the season. It's awesome how you can use your own picture from your phone to customize the card backs! Being able to choose between random and winning deals is a nice feature also, and the choice to replay the same game is great to see if you can win the second time! When I get stuck and think I should be able to play a card, the "Hint" button is available to use. I like the option that you can choose how many cards you want to flip and also the sounds. Being able to see your progress and trying to get a better score makes it more challenging. I like that. I highly recommend this app for anyone who likes to play Solitaire!!!
Addictive!
by Dmh1955 on 2018/03/03 00:42
I’ve been playing this version of Solitaire for several years. I play it at least once a day so I can stay current on the daily challenge. I’ve always loved solitaire and this version is great to play whenever you have only a few minutes wait time anywhere. I like the “show me how to win” feature should I get stuck since all games are supposed to be winnable, which I love. Why would anyone want to play an unwinnable game?? I like that there are different card back options for a little change now and then. One thing that can frustrate, however, is when the “show me how to win” shows that you must skip valid plays. How would you ever know that you need to skip a play in order to win?? But that doesn’t happen too often. The other thing that is a bit frustrating, but almost all games have this problem, is that the high scorers on each hand are from players who have computerized the play. No one can play a hand of solitaire in 30 seconds or less. But I don’t know if there’s much the game support folks can do about these smart aleks that computerize game play for fun. So this isn’t a game you can try to get the high score on! But that isn’t what I’m going for. I enjoy it and it does what I need!
Too many commercials
by Fed up with the commercials on 2020/07/23 11:28
This app used to have pop up ads in between each game. Ok, no problem, I’d take a quick peek at the ad and it was something I was interested in I’d click on it to learn more, if not I’d close the ad and resume playing. I expect that with a free app. But now, especially over the last year or so they’ve moved onto running 30 second commercials that you can’t turn off if you’re not interested. It’s like watching local tv now. And thus happens after every game - about every 3 minutes or so. Additionally, they’ve now got ads that when you click on the X to close it, it opens up the ad in your phones browser instead. Everything is now about clickbait now and it’s become a real nuisance. Don’t get me wrong, the game itself is excellent - I’ve been playing it on my phone for years, but for something as simple as solitaire, to expect someone to upgrade and pay for this to minimize all the commercials when there are hundreds of solitaire apps out there that don’t make you take a minute long commercial break every 3 minutes of play, the choice is obvious. I’ve been a loyal user of this app for several years, but I’ve had it up to here with this nonsense. I’ll be looking for another solitaire app and when I find one I like, I’ll be deleting this one permanently. Sorry guys, you’ve got a great game here, but you’ve seriously overestimated what it’s worth to players to keep using it.
Ads DURING a game!
by fullbird06 on 2019/03/24 10:23
3/24: Thanks for the response, but that doesn’t tell me “what/which” bugs were fixed “to improve my gameplay experience.” All the items you listed were all included in previous “updates,” by the way, which (the coding) served to slow gameplay DOWN! I already knew some ads were shorter and dismissible, although the “X” to delete the ad is much smaller and needs to be hit “precisely” or it leads to frequent redirection to the ad anyway taking “away” from my gameplay experience. Plus, after the redirect to the ad, the game completely reboots...didn’t do that previously. Finally, the ad isn’t broken (it’s not the same ad which breaks into a game), the game is broken because it allows ads to be play DURING my gameplay experience. So, what did you fix? 3/19: Before I even think about updating to the new version, after the last disaster, I want to know EXACTLY what bugs were fixed “to improve my gameplay experience.” 3/15: Even you people have to think this is too much! And paying a subscription to remove ads? Please! Way to ruin a game.
Love the game but not liking the changes
by Dog girl 50 on 2018/09/30 18:04
First of all I really do love this game. I’ve been playing it for years. I would highly recommend it. So why only three stars. The stars are for this version only. I use this game as my personal time reward. When I’ve accomplished what needs to get done in the morning I reward myself by playing the daily challenge. But I don’t like the new changes to the sound. I used to love to hear the click of the cards and the trumpet awards at the end of the daily challenge. It was inspiring. Now in order to get those little rewards I have to also listen to the drawn out harp blasts. Sorry but I just find those annoying, not inspiring. I will continue to play this game but I will turn off the sound for most days. Only to turn it on and endure the harp sound on the 10th, 20th and 30th play days. I’m sure this seems silly to many that I’m making a big deal about the sound but again this game is my personal reward for a job well done. If an added feature is interfering in what was once a pleasurable experience I think it should be brought to the creators attention. On your next update please consider creating an extra toggle setting so that one may remove new added sounds whilst still allowing the old sounds be on during play. Thank you.
Big fan

I’ve been playing this version of solitaire for years now, and I’ve never left a review even though I talk about what I like and don’t like with the app to myself often. The two main suggestions I have for feedback are in regards to the daily challenge calendar and the level up system. 1) I try to play daily with the challenges to get a jeweled crown, and have tried to commit to a full month. I was disappointed when the incentive for getting the jeweled crown is nothing more than satisfying a need for completeness that I desire for everything to match. My thought here is that 10, 20 or a full month of jeweled crowns would result in a jeweled trophy. To distinguish from a normal trophy or daily challenges played after the day has passed. 2) I think the daily challenge should be worth more points than a normal game - again for more incentive to play them. I’ve reached the point where the I try to get the most bang for my buck. I won’t typically play more than 10 games a day to maximize my point return. The only other feedback I have is that at times, no ad shows up. The screen goes black and there isn’t an option to “x” out of that screen. You have to exit the app and open it back up to get the game screen.
Since the update...
by MikeH24 on 2017/09/23 13:23
IN RESPONSE TO DEVELOPER: No, I have never had any other version of this App. The exact same no matter which device I have had (every single version of the iPhone except 5s). I go to "Purchased," scroll down to the very bottom, and there is the App. Never once have I ever noticed ads. If there were ads, it was out of the way. NOW they are FULL SCREEN and cannot be skipped. The first time it happened (after the update on my new iPad Pro 12.9) there was a streaming issue (I guess) because there was nothing except a never ending circle. I had to hard shut off the iPad to close it. Regardless, because of this (and that this has never once happened since the iPhone 3G) I have deleted the App and will not reinstall until this is fixed. I was with you guys since the very beginning, so this has been very disappointing for me. This was one of the few Apps that I first downloaded that are still around and still works (at least it DID work). No more. Unbelievable. I’ve had this App since the beginning, since the iPhone 3G, and it has ALWAYS been my go too App for passing the time. No more. Every update has been great, with many good and new features that has made this App stand the test of time. Now, though, the moment I start a new game, FULL SCREEN ADDS! Such a disappointment. Years and years of loyalty down the drain. DELETED...
Good, fun, love the customization, but BIG issues with energy
by Magicmysticmojo on 2019/04/29 00:31
I don’t know why, but this app drains my phone (iPhone 6S Plus) battery like no other. It also causes my phone to overheat (I know, I tested it- I don’t have exact numbers on hand as I’m writing this, but it drops drastically in at least 5 minutes and starts to heat up almost immediately on start-up). I’m not sure why it drains the battery so bad and overheats my phone while my iPad 3 plays the app without the slightest problem... it doesn’t seem like an issue due to there not being enough space or memory (both of my devices have at least 15 GB free); this might just be a problem with the latest version then, considering the previous ones (at least as far as my iPad 3 could update) worked excellently. The app itself works fine and is rather fun, especially with the daily challenges and such, but the energy drainage and overheating makes it an issue for me. I do love the ability to customize as well as the challenges, so I’ll give this a 3.5/5; sorry, it is really fun for me and I do love this app, but it’s a no-go as far as keeping it on my phone. I’ll still play the version I have on my iPad, but, yeah, the overheating and battery killer is too much.
Ads are incredibly misogynistic and Mobilityware doesn’t care
by kiki091089 on 2020/03/11 21:03
I’ve had this app for about 2 months and I noticed pretty quickly that I kept seeing ads for other “games” that were outrageously misogynistic. They often depicted women as big breasted caricatures whose bodies were being threatened by animals (a dog attack, an elephant that also was supposed to be in love with her, a swarm of bees), or by other men (a large man reaching out for her with a hungry expression while she tried to get away). In all these “games,” there was always a man there to save her, after which she rewarded him with cartoon love eyes. They also advertise “games” where two cartoon women are staring lustily into each other’s eyes and the player can choose whether they kiss or one pulls the other into the pool. I know it’s a well established and justified stereotype that straight men think all women, including lesbians, only exist on this earth to arouse them, but maybe we don’t need to feed into that delusion on an app for solitaire that claims it’s suitable for children. I’ve reached out several times to the app and the response has been complete disinterest in actually trying to stop this. I’ve deleted the app and I know this will most likely go unnoticed by most, but maybe some parents will see it and move on to another app before they okay it for their children’s’ devices.
Ads on solitaire by Mobilityware.
by Weird one. on 2019/09/07 03:19
There are several ads that pop up on this app that no matter what you do you are unable to close. Your only option is to close the app and reopen it. Opting out of these ads does you know good either. Is this their way of trying to get you to buy the premium, ad free version?? I have sound turned off on this app, however there are a few ads that play sound, even though sound is turned off. The game of thrones game app appears and starts blaring stupid music nonstop. Even after the ad ends or I close the advertisement, for the game, it continues to blare. It ruins my enjoyment of the game and I am ready to delete it from my phone and iPad. How does this advertisement bypass my settings and why can’t I turn it off? It’s the most annoying sound on any app I’ve heard. It’s right up there with the spam emails claiming hot women within 10 miles of you want to meet up for sex. Enough already turn off the sound and quit bypassing my settings. That alone gives this app half a star. Get rid of that and you’ve got a 5 star app.
Very enjoyable 🙂
by Auntie AS on 2018/03/12 18:34
Just like regular solitaire but without all the shuffling. I play on my phone, and the cards are clearly visible. I like auto complete. What I like best is that I can play while waiting for an appointment, and turn off my phone when I go in, without losing my game or starting over. Makes periods of waiting bearable, without getting aggravated! Also, once in a while, you run across a spot in your game that might have two choices. If you don't win with your first choice, you have the option to replay the game. Sometimes I will play the same game 4-6 times before I win or run out of options. If you place your cards at a steady pace, it can also be fun to play at a faster pace to challenge yourself. I have several games on my phone, and this is the only one I ever play. The only negative is that some ads come on at a high volume which isn't good if your playing where people are waiting or asleep. I mute and quickly close those, which means even if I would have liked to see the ad, I would just pass it over.
Still addictive but new version is a mixed bag
by ktinkaty on 2018/09/30 05:08
Overall I really like the new version of the app. Accessing the daily puzzle is a snap. If you miss a few days, catching up is also simpler. Once you complete the daily puzzle, it offers you the chance to play the next puzzle. Accepting this option will automatically open the last daily puzzle you missed, saving you time. Additionally, you can now see a visual representation of your progress towards the monthly trophies every time you complete a daily puzzle. The old version was better in one respect.....you could access your trophies on a calendar going back to the first month you played the app. Unfortunately, the new version no longer lets you see all of your trophies. Both the number of games I had played and the trophies earned were a source of pride. I have had this app since December 2015 and I have completed every daily puzzle since I downloaded it. Now I only have access to two months of data. I miss being able to see the trophies I have earned.
Ads and Freezing
by Bellayankee28 on 2019/04/16 08:42
The ads constantly repeat themselves which is unbelievably annoying. Its always an ad for the same thing and then on top of that some ads are much too long, unstoppable, and dont close properly. the last issue bothers me the most because i have to close the whole game to get rid of the ad. the game also freezes during gameplay which isnt as bad but is still inconvenient and very annoying and makes the game not even worth it to play. UPDATE: I see you accepted a greater variety of ads but neglected to remove ones that are FAR too long and unskippable (the subway ad in particular). you have also made the advertising for your no ad version of this game more annoying and consistent. you have blasted ads and then keep shoving the “no ad” option in out faces, and thats pretty scummy. you seem to have only taken suggestions that lead to you getting more money, even if it makes game play less enjoyable for us. UPDATE PT2: I greatly appreciate the fact that you actually read my complaints and wrote me a response. It shows you care as much as I do, which is really cool.
The Good & Bad
by CA RSP TEACHER on 2020/02/10 14:02
I have been enjoying playing this version of Solitaire for many years. I really like the way the game has evolved each year and enjoy earning badges and trophies. Due to insomnia, I will often play to help me get tired enough to be able to go back to sleep. Since my husband has to get up early for work and likes me close to him when he’s sleeping I have always played with sound turned off in both the app and on my device. This has never been a problem until recently. While I don’t mind the ads that pop up, I am having difficulty with a new ad for Angry Birds. Even though my sound is off, this ad plays VERY LOUD OBNOXIOUS MUSIC and I can’t get it to shut off. I can no longer trust that I can play silently and not wake up my husband, which means I can’t play this game when he’s sleeping. This is extremely frustrating to me. Please don’t tell me to pay for something I have enjoyed for many years just to delete the ads. Won’t be doing that.
My game is frozen
by Meghan Brems on 2020/04/06 04:05
So I’ve had this game for a week or two now, and at first I had no problem with it. I love the customization options, and the layout of the game makes it easy to learn/play. However, recently there has been major lag and even cases of the game completely freezing on me while I’m playing. I have this app on both my phone and my Ipad (both experience the lag but only the Ipad has frozen completely on me now). In the last few days it has happened, I’ve simply been able to close the app completely and restart it to fix the problem, but now every time I open it the game is just frozen. No matter how many times I close it and reopen it, I cannot click a single thing. I even tried restarting my Ipad in the hopes that this would fix the problem and it hasn’t. This makes me really sad because I love to play it on the bigger screen, and I’m actually worried that the app on my phone is going to start doing the same thing with how much it has been lagging lately. For the moment, I don’t plan on getting rid of the app, but if this doesn’t get fixed (or at the very least looked into) I’m going to just delete the app altogether from both of my devices.
Ads high jack my phone
by essie and gadget on 2020/04/09 04:46
Update: I expressed my complaints (in a rude manner I admit) and the developer contacted me promptly and in a very kind manner. I have not yet been able to show them the ads that have been inconvenient for me, but they have been very gracious to give me a way to contact them and stop the issue. I appreciate this. I have used this app for YEARS. I don’t pay the subscription, I have never minded the ads until now. Even when I have my volume on silent (and yes, I have double checked to see if I had it on by accident, I don’t) and an ad will take over with sound and everything, my husband wakes up with a start if I’m playing to relax before I got to bed myself. My husband works hard. He deserves to sleep. And some ads won’t even let me dismiss them I have to restart the whole app just to keep playing. I understand that paying the subscription will remove the ads, but I don’t appreciate feeling strong armed into it by allowing the ads to completely take over my phone. It’s greedy. It’s also been glitching and the cards get stuck mid shuffle.
Excellent game but overrides your audio
by corebyte on 2020/07/25 14:49
This game is excellent, with many options including auto-complete, daily challenge, points and levels, statistics, and bonus points for 3 different types of challenges. It’s quite addictive but not overly so. It’s very nice that all ads can be dismissed after just a few seconds. My only compliant is that, as with all MobilityWare apps, the ads do not respect your audio settings. That is: you can be listening to a dictated article using Pocket, or listening to music using Musi, or have your phone set to “vibrate” - all of these are paused or stopped when this game plays an ad with audio. The only exception is when I have Do Not Disturb turned on, but that’s not good if I don’t want to miss calls. So you have to kill the game to make the sound stop, go back to your audio program, start it back up, and then start Solitaire back up again. I raised this issue with the company for their Yukon Russian game and they said they’d fix it, but it seems to have only gotten worse on both games. It’s a major irritation and hence 4 stars out of 5.
Unrealistic times
by 747whaledriver on 2018/10/06 18:31
Upon completion a game, your score is posted in comparison to the highest score attained in the game. Impressive numbers, but has anyone ever looked at those scores? 120 moves in less than 30 seconds? That means the player was making an average of 4 moves a second (in many games 3-5 moves a second). These numbers are very impressive and completely unrealistic. In fact, those scores are impossible. If you have a problem solving one game, the solution may be a minimum of 160+ moves, but when you finally get a score for that game, you’ll see the highest score has fewer moves — which tells this detective that the highest scores are not at all possible. The ads are distracting and intended to be difficult to ignore. Pay for no advertising? Payment only removes the ads temporarily, as I’ve found out with this company: each time the game was revised, I’ve had to pay to remove the ads (three times now). Why not charge for the game once rather than being forced to pay to remove the ads? The cards move like they are flowing through honey in winter upon reaching using auto complete. My scores in this app are the lowest of any game I’ve played online due to card speeds.
BAIT AND SWITCH
by hockettranger on 2019/03/23 15:43
Last year I paid for the ad free version ($5.) it was great. Lately it started to slow down and be annoyingly unresponsive at each game start. I deleted it and reloaded the app from the cloud and all was well. It began to do that again today. Deleted the app went to the App Store found my iCloud download and now I have a game that I have to pay daily or monthly or annually for ad free solitaire what the hell. What a ripoff. Update! Within minutes of sending this rating I heard back from mobilityware explaining what may be occurring and provided a link to reinstall my original app. It worked. A few minutes later I received an email from Brian at mobilityware. He provided the same link but added that the source of the hiccup was possibly in IOS. Go to apps then purchases, and reinstall original app. So, from a knee jerk one star review regarding tactics, to a five star rating. I prefer this solitaire app over others and appreciated the speedy attention to my concern
Impossible to win
by Schnzr lady on 2019/06/02 15:16
I really want to like this game. I recently reloaded it on my iPad as I missed playing. However I quickly remembered why I had removed it. The odds of winning a random draw are ridiculous. I have been playing several games a day for three days and have yet to get a winning hand. I don’t rally want a winning hand every time, which is why I chose random draw, but to not even have one in over 30 rounds does not encourage me to play. I am not a hard core game player. I am sure there is someone out there who has figured out how to win every time, but I am just a little old lady who plays for pleasure and appreciates winning occasionally. Any chance you might make that possible? Update:Great customer service. Who knew you could adjust the settings to increase the % of winning hands dealt in random mode? I certainly didn’t.
Wonderful game, but disappointed, too
by Arlington Boy on 2017/12/14 18:44
I’ve been addicted to this game (and app) for several years and play for relaxation every day. I’ve been pleased with the developer’s updates and improvements to the app over time. I must say, though, that the advertisements have become decidedly more onerous over time. Interestingly, and sadly, immediately following my previous (and my first) more-positive review, of a couple years ago, the ads seemed to get quite a bit worse. That’s probably just an unfortunate coincidence bit, of course, I have no way to know. For that reason, I have until now avoided submitting a newer review. (And I really hope the game experience doesn’t worsen the very next time I play.) I’d be happy to pay-for this version of the game app, actually, if I could dispense with the time-consuming and increasingly tricky and complicated ads, because the game itself is really quite well done. As soon as I complete this review, I’ll check to see if that option is available to me, then update my impressions.
Good - just expect a lot of ads
by PhilNewby on 2018/11/27 13:11
This Solitaire game has been around since my very first iPhone. MobilityWare has been in this realm a long time, so their apps are very very good. Gameplay is smooth and has many customizable settings and options. My only complaint (albeit a small one) is the way these ad-supported games work. They just blast you with ads. Game completion, game restart, new game, etc....all trigger ads. I understand the model they have to work from to generate revenue, but it seems like there could be fewer and still show the appropriate number of ads to generate income from users. The problem is with so many options to pick from, and Solitaire being a game that's identical from one developer to another, is that the next game that has less or no ads will be the one people move to. That said, hopefully MW can tone it down some and make the overall gameplay experience less interrupted and distracting ....it's an otherwise great execution to a fun game.
Upgraded to crap.
by Tr'ed on 2019/11/16 23:11
I've played this for years and have the free version. In the beginning the "Welcome Back to the Game Center" banner was translucent and you could see through it and play through it. Then when Apple turned their look from classic to cartoon the banner got cheap and overs the game while the clock keeps running. The advertisements for the most part follow the rules of etiquette and behave. Sadly some act like Microsoft and Windows 10, the STD of software. The X to close it launches it. Some continue to play the audio long after the video is gone and the game is playing. A few just won't die and a close is the only fix. The real draw back to the free version is it can eat a battery due to all the data traffic for the adds. This can eat you phone bill too. The latest software has epilepsy. Cards strobe and change direction. Takes forever to boot. The real question is why did they try to make solitaire exciting? Still don’t see the time and battery wasting value to earn fancy monikers with one more screen before a new hand.
Latest changes are not appealing
by Meiabear on 2019/02/20 21:16
I've had this game for years, but there is something in the most recent changes that is hurting my eyes, especially when looking through the deck... Also, the changes make it look and feel like every other solitaire game out there. I've kept this one for so long because it wasn't like the others... UPDATE Thankfully the deck flip that hurt my eyes seems to be fixed (or I got used to it). However, the game now takes an obnoxiously long time to load. In the past I could open it and play a game or two within just a few minutes. Now it takes that much time just to open. And once it opens I then have to wait longer for the deck to fully load. And sometimes I think it loaded, but nothing happens when I tap the cards, so I wait even longer until that first card moves. That’s when I know I can play... Unfortunately the look and feel of this game is still so much better than others out there that I feel stuck with it.
Please, make it simple again
by Gladhehadabackup on 2019/06/11 18:38
I cannot understand why everything has to change when you had a perfectly functional game. This game was perfect before adding all this hype and extra animation junk. Nearly every time I open a new game now, daily challenge or not, the app locks up right after the deal, forcing me to restart. Not only that, but there is lag... LAG, in solitaire. How is this even possible? I’ve owned this game for years and years. It is terribly frustrating to consider deleting it for who knows what other junk might be out there. Please fix this. Just take it back to being simple. No one cares about all this extra stuff that has zero to do with what is supposed to be, a simple card game. If I want flashy, sparkles and whimsical animations, I’m sure there’s a million other games on the market to fill that void. Please fix the lag and the lockup’s. I don’t want to spend hours and hours trying a bunch of other apps to simply find one as good as this one used to be.
Yeah but
by Eetshit on 2020/07/29 19:22
Okay, I realize that setting the game to all winnable deals does not mean winnable by the standard playing method. Sometimes you have to skip a move that presents itself in order to allow for a better selection of cards the next time through the deck. The only way to win these hands is to repeatedly play the same deal and try different pathways each time until you win. At this point it becomes something other than solitaire. This must be the method you use to get the highest score, which I don’t care about. I’m up to approx. level 370 and just played at least 40 deals and none were winnable with standard play. The deals must get more difficult as you go to higher levels no matter the disclaimer. The odds of getting so many deals such as this without some manipulation by the game creators is too astronomical to be possible. I like the features of this game but it’s becoming no fun.
When does it stop!!!
by LYNRICKI on 2018/12/19 09:18
I grew up watching my mom play solitaire. Of course she used real cards. Computers were not around then. I think she played to release stress. I'm guessing I play for the same reason. BUT THE ADS DRIVE ME NUTS!! Just as I'm starting a new game an ad appears!! Why oh why do I have to watch the same ad over and over again?? Many of the ads go on and on and can't be Xed out or skipped till they're all done. Up to 5-6 seconds of my time. What a waste. I’m not going to pay for the ads not to play. There’s no guarantee that the ads won’t sneak through. I’d rather pay to play the game then pay not to see the ads. My question is why am I seeing ads for things I would never buy especially over the internet. A car? I’m sure there’s someone out there that will look at the ad and say ..... oh I didn’t think about buying a car!!?? If I was in the market to buy a car I sure as heck wouldn’t do it via internet. Show me things I’m interested in. I’m shown ads from Kohl’s a site I go on. So I know this site knows what sites I go on. I get so frustrated that I lose interest in playing.
Enjoy it a lot except...
by Donr105 on 2019/10/13 07:44
My wife and I both play the same game; she on her iPad, me on my iPhone. We contest the daily challenge with intensity. We allow ads because now and then we find some good ones to sample. I have a problem with an ad for audio books that pops up with a little too much regularity. It is impossible to get out of this ad without restarting solitaire. That's my story and... Please, please, please take those STUPID bonus points away from standard scoring. Are you being run by people who have no memory? Those freakin things were never a part of your standard scoring since it was conceived. Or is it that you’re checking to see if I’m still alive. I’m 76 and still going strong. I’ll drop you a note the minute I pass on. Hopefully you’ll have fixed this (what used to be our) perfect game.
So many people are telling you they hate the revamp
by Pawn Chic on 2019/03/16 13:09
When will you listen to your users & make adjustments to the revamp? I haven’t read all the complaints but I echo many of them. I can’t figure out why requests for change haven’t been met. For years this app has been my “go-to” to decompress, I play several times a day, everyday! The revamp has been so frustrating to me that I’m considering deleting the app altogether. The most maddening thing to me is that the characters move slowly, dragging down my time & they move at an absolute snail’s pace in the auto complete phase. Another problem is that when I am clicking along pretty fast, the characters don’t respond to my touch, even passing by something as obvious as an ace! This is not a flaw in my device. And I have serious doubts about the times of the top scores. After all the practice I’ve had all these years, I use both hands & can’t come CLOSE to the scores in the amount of time those top scores claim, certainly not since the revamp which slowed down response time, significantly! Please fix your fixes!
Ok but updates may have ruined it
by jojomike74 on 2019/02/17 16:02
I have used this app for years but the updates have made it nearly impossible to enjoy. For one thing my phone (XSMax running on latest iOS) gets sooo hot after just a couple of games and it chews up the battery . No other app does this. I can run Pokémon for hours and it never gets hot like this app. The new leveling up system is ok but pointless. I play to relax and do the daily challenge so telling me I’ve hit a new level serves no purpose as far as I can tell. I used to play before bed but my phone gets so hot I quit. I know we have to sit through ads but it would be great if I could choose to mute them all. I listen to audiobook when I play and nothing like having my book cut off to hear a lame ad or worse when I’m in a waiting room playing and the sound starts blaring. I’m willing to sit through ads but I should be able to mute them all without having to worry about some ads ignoring my preference.
Slimy ad insertion
by Applispandu on 2018/05/29 10:15
I'll touch in just 2 issues - ads and improvement. 1. Sure, like all apps, Mobility must make money by pushing ads and I know I have to pay to avoid ads. However, the problem I have is with how they push ads in a slimy and often times they push the same unattractive game ads again and again - even after I watch it and hit the cross/exit, it surfaces again. Surely, it's easy to know if a user is interested in it? Guess not. They're too lazy to do that, it seems. The could surface a different game ad or more attractive ones? But no, they don't. I used to watch the ads. Because I thought it's fair to them because I play for free. Now, I just sip my coffee or do something else while the crap is playing out. I've been playing for close to 10 years and have never ever bought something based on the ads. 2. I'd pay for the game but have not been happy with the development of Solitaire. Except for cosmetic changes, the core has remained the same in more than a decade!

I have played and enjoyed this app since my first iPhone. This morning I updated my iOS, and it is unplayably frustrating now. Don’t know who to blame: developer or Apple. For a decade, as long as I didn’t accidentally leave my wifi in, I would get one quick advertising slide at the top of each game. Annoying, but that was the price for “free” version. Today, even with wifi off, and cellular data disabled for the app, i am assaulted with a series of childish animations pimping games I wouldn’t want even if they didn’t go straight to my annoyed out of contention list. And heaven forbid I miss the very light-so-it-blends-in skip button! Then I am blessed with additional unwanted advertising. You want my $20 a year (for solitaire?? Are you for real?) so bad you are willing to bludgeon me for it? Forget it. I carried a deck of cards in my pocket for two years in grade school. I can do it again. I’ll check back periodically to see if you fix it, but until then, I will be the first of the people lining up to not play your game anymore. Update: I don’t know what happened, but, shortly after writing the above, and update for Solitaire appeared, and it fixed whatever was going on, mostly. So this is back to the best Solitaire in the app store. But we are in pandemic lockdown. I have nothing better to than keep an on this situation...
WHY?
by Elliotskid on 2017/10/23 01:27
Addiction is putting it mildly when it comes to this game. It has been a source of escape and challenges that has melted time for me, a necessity when watching over two highly active ADHD boys. Recently, however, the app has been the source of more frustration than Congress. Why? Because the BLOODY thing CHEATS! I have the latest iPads and all updated to the current IOS so there is no conflict with respect to hardware or OS. So why are cards disappearing from the deck upon the closing rounds of the game? This is not fiction or imagined. I have not only counted the number of remaining cards at the turn, but have placed by sight the card required to win the round only to have that card not show again. I haven’t seen card manipulation like this since I rewrote the Atari Basic Blackjack. By the way, nicely coded that placement of the last ace!
Best Solitaire for iPad Air!!
by JF&KDF on 2017/07/28 15:46
I've been using this solitaire game for years now & it's great! I like card sites where I can either set my own background & cards, like this one, or just use the plain, which I like too! Most games have automatic Ace piles build for you; I like having the choice, which you do with this game. It's all in The Settings! So if you like the simplicity of playing a good challenging game of Solitaire, this is your game. Best of all it's free; the only thing I don't like or appreciate ( and it's not only on this Site ) is to pay for Ad removal, which I don't do anyway but the Ads do get frustrating, especially before EACH game-some super short, some too long. But overall, I love this game of Solitaire!! And it's never gone crashing or crazy on me.........as of yet!!
Solitare is a very enjoyable game to play, BUT!
by Pesty_Varmit on 2018/03/12 15:35
I deleted this app because their is just tooo many advertisements for me. Someone who doesn't mind all the advertisements will really like this app. AND I noticed all the apps that had excessive advertisements on my iPad were Mobilityware apps so I went through all my games and deleted all motilityware apps. I get enough advertisements on TV,radio, internet, mail and e-mails don't need them while trying to play a game. It's really too bad I had to do this because mobilityware has some very good games, very enjoyable aside from the adds. In response to developers reply: I don't mind adds if they are at beginning OR end of the game, I can't deal with adds in the middle of play. Right in the middle where it interrupts my play, not good! I understand the need to make money but why get your apps if I can't play them without interruption. If I paid for an app and this happened I would want all my money returned and the app would be deleted. Your apps remain deleted.
Vanishing Trophies (PLEASE Fix)
by Fantasy Lover 659 on 2020/09/14 00:11
I like this game a lot, but I REALLY wish it would stop making all my daily challenge progress and some of my trophies (like the July 2020 Trophy) vanish EVERY TIME I RESTART MY IPAD so if there’s a way to fix that I’d appreciate it. EDIT: While I could certainly redo the August 2020 daily challenges to get THAT trophy back, I still REALLY wish that the game would be fixed so that I could have my July 2020 daily challenge progress and trophy back too please if it isn’t too much trouble for the people who made this App to begin with. EDIT 2: And the reason why I’m saying this is because I REALLY TRULY do know and remember playing and completing ALL of the daily challenges for July 2020 (One daily challenge at a time each day.) when they came out, and I’m sure the people who made this App to begin with would want that issue fixed too, that’s all. EDIT 3: I’m sorry to say that I’ve recently gotten busy with other things (like random videos online and some other game apps that I have.) since I’m the kind of person who likes to do whatever seems interesting, so I’m not sure if I’ll have enough time to redo the August 2020 daily challenges, so if the people who work on fixing any issues that show up in this App could get both the Gold Trophies and daily challenge progress for July and August 2020 at some point I’d really and truly appreciate it.
Disappointing ad malfunctions
by Qudelkedel on 2017/11/29 16:14
I have no problem with the developers putting out a free game and then making money on ads. However, I do have a problem when the quality of an app is sacrificed to jam-pack more ads into the app. This is the case with this solitaire app. There is an ad before every new game, which is completely fine, but the problem comes when the ads malfunction. Many of the ads’ close buttons are completely unresponsive. Since they are full-screen ads, this means the app gets stuck and I have to completely kill and re-open the app. I was recently trying to re-play the same game when this happened, meaning that deal was completely lost. If you’re going to have ads, at least make them close-able. I don’t care if there’s a timer. I don’t care if there’s an ad before every game. Just make the close button WORK. I will update my review to four stars if and when this issue is fixed, since it really is a good game. This is disappointing.
Does the job!
by Cea Music on 2017/09/30 09:57
Everyone knows that those of us who play solitaire play to pass time, assist in keeping our minds sharp and most importantly the thrill of shifting through card numbers.... this version of solitaire does all that plus rewards every 10 completed games with a trophy! In addition to the fact that they keep a great record of your playing time. I can see where I've increased my speed over the years. They also have levels of play. While I'm not crazy about the scoring system for this version....I'm not sure just HOW they've come up with this system of scoring.... I do like the other thoughtful ways that they've come up with to add to this age old card game to make it more interesting to play. I've had other versions of solitaire on my phone, I've always liked this one version best......
Good brain testing game
by Harshad patel, CT on 2018/11/05 04:36
Very interactive game for testing coordination between hand reflexes and application of brain. Game tests user's skill and intelligence. With practice efficiency, speed and accuracy increases. Considering human tendency, users should be cautious to become addictive. I have seen many of coworkers solving solitaire during lunch period. If played rationally, this is an excellent game. No doubt that this is very popular and evergreen game used by very large mass. After playing only one daily challenge game per day since last 15 years I rate this as my most favorite game. This game is very good for fast ‘Brain and Hand’ coordination. With practice, game completion time can reduce. People should try to finish this game in less than 2 minutes and should target to achieve minimum score of 4000.
Get rid of ridiculous long ads
by frustrated1986 on 2019/04/16 05:59
Been playing this game for years don’t mind latest update, little buggy but getting better. Issue I have is 30 second ads for cars I would never consider buying and less so now. I understand ad revenue funds development but 30 second ads are ridiculous!! I can typically tell a winning hand in less than 30 seconds and the multiple non-winning hands in between makes waiting for a new game unbearable. All seems like a scam to get your loyal users to pay the exorbitant price for no ads. Think it is time I kick mobilityware apps to the curb and look elsewhere. Tired of the covert blackmail to pay extra for a game many of us have enjoyed for years. You want to bombard us with intrusive long ads to increase your bottom line, see how it works out when a large population of your users migrate elsewhere, less users equals less revenue. And Acura I would never purchase one of your cars due to your ads interfering with my relaxation time, big fail!
Decent
by monchimanson on 2019/01/20 05:16
I love this app for the most part. I don’t like that the random deals are still counted towards your win statistics considering that some of them can’t be won. The ads are annoying because some of them come pre-muted and don’t pause my music and then some of them aren’t muted and interrupt my music or still play sound while my phone is on silent/vibrate or with the ringer otherwise off. And some of the apps are just annoying. My grandmother plays this app and it’s sometimes hard for her to see the X to close out of an ad or when she tries to it’s sometimes too small and ends up redirecting her to the App Store or a website and being an 80 year old woman she doesn’t want to nor know how to deal with that. We both have had the issue of tapping the X repeatedly and the ad still being there.
Honestly just crap at this point
by Jaquenn on 2018/09/02 06:33
I open the app. I start a game, but first I have to watch the usual pre-game ad. The “skip” button appears. I press the skip button. I am transported by the skip button to the App Store. I navigate back to the game. There is now an “x” button for the ad beneath the first ad. I press the x button. The game crashes. I am forced to reboot. And watch another add. One of the ads is a Dunkin Donuts ad which does not fill the whole screen. Therefore the “x” button is not reachable and you have to close the app. And then watch a whole new ad, despite the fact that I can see a game loading behind the DD ad. Many of the ads have an ad beneath them so I have to X out of that one which crashes the game half the time. Rinse and repeat. I know that none of the developers for this app will honestly care, but at least the “ad” experience for other free games is somewhat manageable. Your ad system is a complete virus. Please at least make it so they are reasonably skippable and don’t crash the game.
Great Fun People -Enjoy!
by Carrie77409 on 2017/12/04 05:02
I have been Playing Mobility Ware Solitaire and 2 other games for several years and highly recommend them. The only complaint I have is that this Solitaire got “stuck” or frozen on my smart phone (not the other Mobility Ware games” & the only way I could get past the screen, was to go to the general screen & delete this app. Then I find the same app & download it back on my cell phone. My issue is (not that this is not a complaint but rather s request to the developers is that when we sign in again under the exact same name, that the 2 years of games I had completed be recognized & reloaded into this same account. Enjoy people one of the limited time watched & # completed games there is to be had (being played) for an game which I will always love & enjoy,
Solitaire
by Explanoite on 2018/01/08 05:19
Good game. Any problems I have are nitpicks or pet peeves (like monthly reminders I can change the background or card decorations: I got it the first 8 times, quit telling me). Nothing I'd take a star off for. One possible exception is the ads. Having to see an ad each time I start a game is fine. My problem is the trend towards “resistant” ads: ads where you have to wait and click close twice. A game demo loads up, making me wait the time of a normal ad just to see it start. Then I have to wait for the demo to play itself a bit. Then the X appears - but haha, just kidding, because this doesn’t close the ad, it just loads the next part of the same ad. When an ad knows I want to close it and goes “no wait, let me show you more about it” I will avoid clicking on it out of sheer spite at that point.
FABULOUS
by IGTKAA on 2019/04/07 20:33
I ABSOLUTELY love playing Solitaire!! I survived a hemmoratic stroke four years ago and the game keeps my mind working. I’m apparently a miracle and shouldn’t have survived! Everyday that I’m granted a new day and I can open my eyes, I’m BEYOND excited!! My stroke was caused by undetected high blood pressure. I’ve changed my diet and I walk EVERY day!!! I used to be 230 pounds and a size 20. Now, I’m a size 6 and feel FANTASTIC!!!! My husband has been MY BIGGEST FAN!!!! I attend a TBI Day Program and was awarded “Survivor of the Year” in 2017 and my husband was awarded “Caregiver of the Year.” Everyday I wake up, I’m BEYOND stoked to jump into the day!! I was in a wheelchair, then a walker, and now I ambulate independently!! I know this is way too much to say about this game but I’ve been to hell and back and your game rocks! Thank you so much!!!!
Best solitaire game I have found
by swjw21299 on 2018/02/07 22:33
I have played this maybe 500x's (which I acknowledge isn't a lot). I have tried others and they don't compare. The ability to tap on a card for movement(as opposed to dragging and dropping) is great. You have the daily challenges which is really fun. I did have a glitch yesterday when I tried to move cards to a free space and I couldn't, but oh well, I worked around it and still won the game. The ability to change backgrounds, card backs, etc. is fun to change it up. Only comment, get rid of the advertisements between games. Overall very good game, the go to game for me. Sorry, one last thing. The top scores, and fastest times... that has to be a computer achieving those... right? Thanks for bringing a great old fashion game to our devices!
Good pastime
by Capt'n Bumpa on 2020/11/06 00:51
This is a good pastime. It rarely hangs although it occasionally exits by itself. The animation is excellent with a number of nuances to entertain although I would prefer it if the display built slower so the detail was easier to see and appreciate especially the pyramid and sailing ship. The adds are generally tolerable with the exception of the ones with the long videos which require way to much time to download and run and frequently have to be exited twice. I understand the need for revenue but too many of these will drive me away. There are also several adds which never end like the one from personal comfort for their Veterans Day bed sale. I also find the ad bar at the bottom VERY annoying. If you must have it, put it above the game where it won't be activated accidentally.

Recently this app stopped opening for me, so I downloaded it again (IOS) and what I received looks like a very, very old version. Not the sleek version I was used to playing daily! What happened?
Long wait times
by mjvadventures on 2020/12/01 15:23
Even though I upgraded for the ad free version, I still have to wait through the ‘ad period’ before continuing with the game. So I may avoid the ads, but playing is not continuous. Increasingly, the wait time for the game to load seems even longer than having to put up with the ads. Time to look for another app I deleted and reinstalled the app which seems to have fixed the problem so I upgraded my rating. The app still occasionally freezes so no five stars yet.

Used to like this
by AnnieGL7 on 2020/11/30 03:57
I used to like this app, but the updates are making it annoying to play. Now there's a levels bar at the top when you start a game that cannot be turned off, I can't get the daily challenge to go away, even after following the instructions. The overall look has changed recently too, I liked the old look better. I used to have the paid version on my phone as well as my iPad and the phone version switched to the free with ads version and I cannot restore my paid version without paying again, customer service has been unresponsive. I'm looking for something else. Used to be able buy an ad free game, but now it’s subscription only. The developers got greedy. I’m done with MobilityWare.

Love it. Especially when you can receive helpful hints! That usually enables you to win the game! I think that even with the hints you lose too many games in a row!
Good Game
by Nellular on 2020/11/25 12:05
The game itself is fine except how the auto complete doesn’t play for your best interest. Also the x button on the ads don’t work a lot of the time. I will have to close the app after every game bc when I try to close the ad it takes me to the website. That’s wack. I didn’t come for all that.

Disruption in play

I had turned off sound in the settings for my solitaire app. I am now getting sound during an advertisement the disrupts not only my game but other apps running at the same time.

Hate the ads between each game
My one dislike
by Waiting and watching on 2020/11/24 15:45
The one thing that I dislike about this version of solitaire is that some of the ads are well over 5 seconds. I don’t want to view a long ad... no thanks.

The 3 draw games are impossible to beat which means youll reset them. Which forces you to watch ads to make them money.

I enjoy a challenging game of solitaire. My only complaint with this app & it’s a big one is periodically you will get several games in a row that are not possible to win. I’m not sure if it’s so they can run a specific number of ads or what but it’s extremely frustrating.

Sound in the ads
by graciepj on 2020/11/21 18:21
I put my phone on silent when playing so as to not disturb others. However the ads play with sound which defeats the purpose. Now I have to turn the volume down on my phone which is more annoying than just turning the sound off. Trying to play and not disturb either when in a waiting room. The ads playing with sound disturbs everyone around you.
Ad sounds
by hog.ryder on 2020/11/21 16:47
I have the sound turned off in the game and recently several of your ads come on with sound and I have to find the mute button then wait to close the ad. If this trend continues I will uninstall this game along with another from mobility ware that’s doing the same from my phone. I will tolerate the ads, but not being forced to listen to the ads when I’m supposedly given the option to mute the sound.

by GOT247 on 2020/11/20 18:48
I mean it. The ads blaring when I have the game muted is deplorable. You can’t fix it?! It’s not brain surgery, guys. Fix it. 10/19/2020 Once again, I come forward, hat in hand, asking that you might fix the sounds/noises issues. Now, the ad music is playing while I’m playing the actual game. That’s the Lowe’s ad. The Sam’s club ad promoting their app (which I already have) gets stuck every single time, so I have to reboot. I don’t mind watching ads, I just don’t want any noise or sounds! I don’t know why your genius’ can’t figure this out. I hope people read these reviews. 11/20/2020 I hate you for not fixing the noises/sounds/audio on the ads. When I want quiet, I want quiet. I’m looking for a game that actually lets you be on silent mode.
Great fun!

The joy of card games

App is unusably slow
by emraged87 on 2020/11/17 17:22
I used to really like this app. It worked well, there was the occasional ad but nothing worse than what you get on other mobile games. However, in the past month, this app has become so slow and laggy that it is literally unusable. I draw, the cards flip halfway and then the app stalls for minutes at a time. The app stalls for AT LEAST 15 seconds anytime I try to do anything. Using this app is just an exercise in frustration now. Don’t get this app unless they fix this issue.
Very good application.

I absolutely love this game and play it very day. I was up to level 300+ when I lost my phone. When I logged back in on my new phone, I had to start over and could not pick up where I left off. So now I am on level 4 with no daily challenges and at the beginning. I wish there was a log on that would remember where we left off and can pick up no matter what device we are using. Also why is this review in black in on a dark shadowed background where you can hardly even see your words?! But nonetheless, I do love this game

Kills battery
by billy752 on 2020/11/17 01:55
The app itself is fine but it kills battery. For every game played it consumes about 3-5% of the battery and the cellphone gets super hot after a few minutes. Do not recommend.
The game itself is excellent. But....
by 1stCeye on 2019/04/14 01:38
.....I have a question about a ONE TIME OFFER-only offered now....it stated that I could have six months ad free for ONLY $2.99...Great says I....hen after I tap ok, up comes another screen stating this $2.99 is good for only 7 days and after will be charged every month for.......WHA.....? WHAT??? Huh?? Did I read something wrong here.....I am agreeing to Six months ad free for $2.99....so I canceled....Guess I lost that “one time offer on this screen”...I sort of have the habit of reading the fine print, but I cannot believe you would play games like this with your customers. Now, I would like an explanation, so I can get six months of no ads, but one of two thing ps will happen here...#1. You will answer this post. #2 No one in the world will ever see this reviews cause I just embarrassed you...so? I love this game, but marketing is gonna get in trouble......It seems as if my Mom forgot to teach me that I could move cards from the aces pile back into the stacks! Opening a way to move cards to get a win. I am learning that now, but my thick head keeps forgetting that...the golden glow helps remind me while no making me feel entirely stupid....I now have and SPIDER. THESE GAMES ARE SO PLEASANT TO PLAY. I curl up in my chair, sip my iced tea and just play. My Nana would have loved this....( when I am sure of what I am experiencin, I will cheerfully change this post....)😀😀😀
Changes are terrible...but (update)
by LivLou37 on 2019/01/25 17:52
UPDATE! The new changes are frustrating. I deleted this app and went in search of another. Tried several. Nothing. Not a single one even came close to this app. The features and customizable settings set this app a part from all others by far. I’ll just have to live with the terrible changes. This new layout has been out for several months now. I wanted to give it a real shot before writing a review. I HATE it. Where to start? The new Daily Challenge calendar is hard to see the crowns with or without jewels. The stupid bar at the bottom showing progress to the next ugly trophy is just a waste of time and is just another thing between seeing my stats for that deal. The level ups is fine but again another thing between me and the stats. If I miss a day on the daily challenge, there is no easy way to get to it if I view my stats from the game I just played. If I view the stats, I have to go to menu then wait for the calendar to load and then I get an ad to finally play the next game. It’s TOO much. That was my favorite part of this app before the whole revamp, it was simple. I can play my game without all the other hype. I’m seriously considering deleting this app for one of the hundreds of other solitaire apps. I’m so disappointed. I play this game daily and usually multiple times a day, but not anymore. Don't get me wrong, it needed updates, but not a complete revamp with unnecessary features.
Addicting Solitaire!!!
by Coin collecter on 2017/09/25 13:25
I love this app for Solitaire! I have tried other apps but this one is my favorite by far. The automatic movement of a card for placing it to the Aces and also the board by just tapping it is a great feature! Other apps that I've tried make you hold onto the card and manually move it to the place you want. Some other apps are hard to see on an iPhone because the cards are too small. I like that you can change the card faces and backs because you can choose one that's easier to see. Also, changing the background boards makes it more interesting. Right now I am using the autumn scene, it's a nice change for the season. It's awesome how you can use your own picture from your phone to customize the card backs! Being able to choose between random and winning deals is a nice feature also, and the choice to replay the same game is great to see if you can win the second time! When I get stuck and think I should be able to play a card, the "Hint" button is available to use. I like the option that you can choose how many cards you want to flip and also the sounds. Being able to see your progress and trying to get a better score makes it more challenging. I like that. I highly recommend this app for anyone who likes to play Solitaire!!!
Addictive!
by Dmh1955 on 2018/03/03 00:42
I’ve been playing this version of Solitaire for several years. I play it at least once a day so I can stay current on the daily challenge. I’ve always loved solitaire and this version is great to play whenever you have only a few minutes wait time anywhere. I like the “show me how to win” feature should I get stuck since all games are supposed to be winnable, which I love. Why would anyone want to play an unwinnable game?? I like that there are different card back options for a little change now and then. One thing that can frustrate, however, is when the “show me how to win” shows that you must skip valid plays. How would you ever know that you need to skip a play in order to win?? But that doesn’t happen too often. The other thing that is a bit frustrating, but almost all games have this problem, is that the high scorers on each hand are from players who have computerized the play. No one can play a hand of solitaire in 30 seconds or less. But I don’t know if there’s much the game support folks can do about these smart aleks that computerize game play for fun. So this isn’t a game you can try to get the high score on! But that isn’t what I’m going for. I enjoy it and it does what I need!
Too many commercials
by Fed up with the commercials on 2020/07/23 11:28
This app used to have pop up ads in between each game. Ok, no problem, I’d take a quick peek at the ad and it was something I was interested in I’d click on it to learn more, if not I’d close the ad and resume playing. I expect that with a free app. But now, especially over the last year or so they’ve moved onto running 30 second commercials that you can’t turn off if you’re not interested. It’s like watching local tv now. And thus happens after every game - about every 3 minutes or so. Additionally, they’ve now got ads that when you click on the X to close it, it opens up the ad in your phones browser instead. Everything is now about clickbait now and it’s become a real nuisance. Don’t get me wrong, the game itself is excellent - I’ve been playing it on my phone for years, but for something as simple as solitaire, to expect someone to upgrade and pay for this to minimize all the commercials when there are hundreds of solitaire apps out there that don’t make you take a minute long commercial break every 3 minutes of play, the choice is obvious. I’ve been a loyal user of this app for several years, but I’ve had it up to here with this nonsense. I’ll be looking for another solitaire app and when I find one I like, I’ll be deleting this one permanently. Sorry guys, you’ve got a great game here, but you’ve seriously overestimated what it’s worth to players to keep using it.
Ads DURING a game!
by fullbird06 on 2019/03/24 10:23
3/24: Thanks for the response, but that doesn’t tell me “what/which” bugs were fixed “to improve my gameplay experience.” All the items you listed were all included in previous “updates,” by the way, which (the coding) served to slow gameplay DOWN! I already knew some ads were shorter and dismissible, although the “X” to delete the ad is much smaller and needs to be hit “precisely” or it leads to frequent redirection to the ad anyway taking “away” from my gameplay experience. Plus, after the redirect to the ad, the game completely reboots...didn’t do that previously. Finally, the ad isn’t broken (it’s not the same ad which breaks into a game), the game is broken because it allows ads to be play DURING my gameplay experience. So, what did you fix? 3/19: Before I even think about updating to the new version, after the last disaster, I want to know EXACTLY what bugs were fixed “to improve my gameplay experience.” 3/15: Even you people have to think this is too much! And paying a subscription to remove ads? Please! Way to ruin a game.
Love the game but not liking the changes
by Dog girl 50 on 2018/09/30 18:04
First of all I really do love this game. I’ve been playing it for years. I would highly recommend it. So why only three stars. The stars are for this version only. I use this game as my personal time reward. When I’ve accomplished what needs to get done in the morning I reward myself by playing the daily challenge. But I don’t like the new changes to the sound. I used to love to hear the click of the cards and the trumpet awards at the end of the daily challenge. It was inspiring. Now in order to get those little rewards I have to also listen to the drawn out harp blasts. Sorry but I just find those annoying, not inspiring. I will continue to play this game but I will turn off the sound for most days. Only to turn it on and endure the harp sound on the 10th, 20th and 30th play days. I’m sure this seems silly to many that I’m making a big deal about the sound but again this game is my personal reward for a job well done. If an added feature is interfering in what was once a pleasurable experience I think it should be brought to the creators attention. On your next update please consider creating an extra toggle setting so that one may remove new added sounds whilst still allowing the old sounds be on during play. Thank you.
Big fan
by ElderlyPi314 on 2019/04/30 22:59
I’ve been playing this version of solitaire for years now, and I’ve never left a review even though I talk about what I like and don’t like with the app to myself often. The two main suggestions I have for feedback are in regards to the daily challenge calendar and the level up system. 1) I try to play daily with the challenges to get a jeweled crown, and have tried to commit to a full month. I was disappointed when the incentive for getting the jeweled crown is nothing more than satisfying a need for completeness that I desire for everything to match. My thought here is that 10, 20 or a full month of jeweled crowns would result in a jeweled trophy. To distinguish from a normal trophy or daily challenges played after the day has passed. 2) I think the daily challenge should be worth more points than a normal game - again for more incentive to play them. I’ve reached the point where the I try to get the most bang for my buck. I won’t typically play more than 10 games a day to maximize my point return. The only other feedback I have is that at times, no ad shows up. The screen goes black and there isn’t an option to “x” out of that screen. You have to exit the app and open it back up to get the game screen.
Since the update...
by MikeH24 on 2017/09/23 13:23
IN RESPONSE TO DEVELOPER: No, I have never had any other version of this App. The exact same no matter which device I have had (every single version of the iPhone except 5s). I go to "Purchased," scroll down to the very bottom, and there is the App. Never once have I ever noticed ads. If there were ads, it was out of the way. NOW they are FULL SCREEN and cannot be skipped. The first time it happened (after the update on my new iPad Pro 12.9) there was a streaming issue (I guess) because there was nothing except a never ending circle. I had to hard shut off the iPad to close it. Regardless, because of this (and that this has never once happened since the iPhone 3G) I have deleted the App and will not reinstall until this is fixed. I was with you guys since the very beginning, so this has been very disappointing for me. This was one of the few Apps that I first downloaded that are still around and still works (at least it DID work). No more. Unbelievable. I’ve had this App since the beginning, since the iPhone 3G, and it has ALWAYS been my go too App for passing the time. No more. Every update has been great, with many good and new features that has made this App stand the test of time. Now, though, the moment I start a new game, FULL SCREEN ADDS! Such a disappointment. Years and years of loyalty down the drain. DELETED...
Good, fun, love the customization, but BIG issues with energy
by Magicmysticmojo on 2019/04/29 00:31
I don’t know why, but this app drains my phone (iPhone 6S Plus) battery like no other. It also causes my phone to overheat (I know, I tested it- I don’t have exact numbers on hand as I’m writing this, but it drops drastically in at least 5 minutes and starts to heat up almost immediately on start-up). I’m not sure why it drains the battery so bad and overheats my phone while my iPad 3 plays the app without the slightest problem... it doesn’t seem like an issue due to there not being enough space or memory (both of my devices have at least 15 GB free); this might just be a problem with the latest version then, considering the previous ones (at least as far as my iPad 3 could update) worked excellently. The app itself works fine and is rather fun, especially with the daily challenges and such, but the energy drainage and overheating makes it an issue for me. I do love the ability to customize as well as the challenges, so I’ll give this a 3.5/5; sorry, it is really fun for me and I do love this app, but it’s a no-go as far as keeping it on my phone. I’ll still play the version I have on my iPad, but, yeah, the overheating and battery killer is too much.
Ads are incredibly misogynistic and Mobilityware doesn’t care
by kiki091089 on 2020/03/11 21:03
I’ve had this app for about 2 months and I noticed pretty quickly that I kept seeing ads for other “games” that were outrageously misogynistic. They often depicted women as big breasted caricatures whose bodies were being threatened by animals (a dog attack, an elephant that also was supposed to be in love with her, a swarm of bees), or by other men (a large man reaching out for her with a hungry expression while she tried to get away). In all these “games,” there was always a man there to save her, after which she rewarded him with cartoon love eyes. They also advertise “games” where two cartoon women are staring lustily into each other’s eyes and the player can choose whether they kiss or one pulls the other into the pool. I know it’s a well established and justified stereotype that straight men think all women, including lesbians, only exist on this earth to arouse them, but maybe we don’t need to feed into that delusion on an app for solitaire that claims it’s suitable for children. I’ve reached out several times to the app and the response has been complete disinterest in actually trying to stop this. I’ve deleted the app and I know this will most likely go unnoticed by most, but maybe some parents will see it and move on to another app before they okay it for their children’s’ devices.
Ads on solitaire by Mobilityware.
by Weird one. on 2019/09/07 03:19
There are several ads that pop up on this app that no matter what you do you are unable to close. Your only option is to close the app and reopen it. Opting out of these ads does you know good either. Is this their way of trying to get you to buy the premium, ad free version?? I have sound turned off on this app, however there are a few ads that play sound, even though sound is turned off. The game of thrones game app appears and starts blaring stupid music nonstop. Even after the ad ends or I close the advertisement, for the game, it continues to blare. It ruins my enjoyment of the game and I am ready to delete it from my phone and iPad. How does this advertisement bypass my settings and why can’t I turn it off? It’s the most annoying sound on any app I’ve heard. It’s right up there with the spam emails claiming hot women within 10 miles of you want to meet up for sex. Enough already turn off the sound and quit bypassing my settings. That alone gives this app half a star. Get rid of that and you’ve got a 5 star app.
Very enjoyable 🙂
by Auntie AS on 2018/03/12 18:34
Just like regular solitaire but without all the shuffling. I play on my phone, and the cards are clearly visible. I like auto complete. What I like best is that I can play while waiting for an appointment, and turn off my phone when I go in, without losing my game or starting over. Makes periods of waiting bearable, without getting aggravated! Also, once in a while, you run across a spot in your game that might have two choices. If you don't win with your first choice, you have the option to replay the game. Sometimes I will play the same game 4-6 times before I win or run out of options. If you place your cards at a steady pace, it can also be fun to play at a faster pace to challenge yourself. I have several games on my phone, and this is the only one I ever play. The only negative is that some ads come on at a high volume which isn't good if your playing where people are waiting or asleep. I mute and quickly close those, which means even if I would have liked to see the ad, I would just pass it over.
Still addictive but new version is a mixed bag
by ktinkaty on 2018/09/30 05:08
Overall I really like the new version of the app. Accessing the daily puzzle is a snap. If you miss a few days, catching up is also simpler. Once you complete the daily puzzle, it offers you the chance to play the next puzzle. Accepting this option will automatically open the last daily puzzle you missed, saving you time. Additionally, you can now see a visual representation of your progress towards the monthly trophies every time you complete a daily puzzle. The old version was better in one respect.....you could access your trophies on a calendar going back to the first month you played the app. Unfortunately, the new version no longer lets you see all of your trophies. Both the number of games I had played and the trophies earned were a source of pride. I have had this app since December 2015 and I have completed every daily puzzle since I downloaded it. Now I only have access to two months of data. I miss being able to see the trophies I have earned.
Ads and Freezing
by Bellayankee28 on 2019/04/16 08:42
The ads constantly repeat themselves which is unbelievably annoying. Its always an ad for the same thing and then on top of that some ads are much too long, unstoppable, and dont close properly. the last issue bothers me the most because i have to close the whole game to get rid of the ad. the game also freezes during gameplay which isnt as bad but is still inconvenient and very annoying and makes the game not even worth it to play. UPDATE: I see you accepted a greater variety of ads but neglected to remove ones that are FAR too long and unskippable (the subway ad in particular). you have also made the advertising for your no ad version of this game more annoying and consistent. you have blasted ads and then keep shoving the “no ad” option in out faces, and thats pretty scummy. you seem to have only taken suggestions that lead to you getting more money, even if it makes game play less enjoyable for us. UPDATE PT2: I greatly appreciate the fact that you actually read my complaints and wrote me a response. It shows you care as much as I do, which is really cool.
The Good & Bad
by CA RSP TEACHER on 2020/02/10 14:02
I have been enjoying playing this version of Solitaire for many years. I really like the way the game has evolved each year and enjoy earning badges and trophies. Due to insomnia, I will often play to help me get tired enough to be able to go back to sleep. Since my husband has to get up early for work and likes me close to him when he’s sleeping I have always played with sound turned off in both the app and on my device. This has never been a problem until recently. While I don’t mind the ads that pop up, I am having difficulty with a new ad for Angry Birds. Even though my sound is off, this ad plays VERY LOUD OBNOXIOUS MUSIC and I can’t get it to shut off. I can no longer trust that I can play silently and not wake up my husband, which means I can’t play this game when he’s sleeping. This is extremely frustrating to me. Please don’t tell me to pay for something I have enjoyed for many years just to delete the ads. Won’t be doing that.
My game is frozen

So I’ve had this game for a week or two now, and at first I had no problem with it. I love the customization options, and the layout of the game makes it easy to learn/play. However, recently there has been major lag and even cases of the game completely freezing on me while I’m playing. I have this app on both my phone and my Ipad (both experience the lag but only the Ipad has frozen completely on me now). In the last few days it has happened, I’ve simply been able to close the app completely and restart it to fix the problem, but now every time I open it the game is just frozen. No matter how many times I close it and reopen it, I cannot click a single thing. I even tried restarting my Ipad in the hopes that this would fix the problem and it hasn’t. This makes me really sad because I love to play it on the bigger screen, and I’m actually worried that the app on my phone is going to start doing the same thing with how much it has been lagging lately. For the moment, I don’t plan on getting rid of the app, but if this doesn’t get fixed (or at the very least looked into) I’m going to just delete the app altogether from both of my devices.
Ads high jack my phone
by essie and gadget on 2020/04/09 04:46
Update: I expressed my complaints (in a rude manner I admit) and the developer contacted me promptly and in a very kind manner. I have not yet been able to show them the ads that have been inconvenient for me, but they have been very gracious to give me a way to contact them and stop the issue. I appreciate this. I have used this app for YEARS. I don’t pay the subscription, I have never minded the ads until now. Even when I have my volume on silent (and yes, I have double checked to see if I had it on by accident, I don’t) and an ad will take over with sound and everything, my husband wakes up with a start if I’m playing to relax before I got to bed myself. My husband works hard. He deserves to sleep. And some ads won’t even let me dismiss them I have to restart the whole app just to keep playing. I understand that paying the subscription will remove the ads, but I don’t appreciate feeling strong armed into it by allowing the ads to completely take over my phone. It’s greedy. It’s also been glitching and the cards get stuck mid shuffle.
Excellent game but overrides your audio
by corebyte on 2020/07/25 14:49
This game is excellent, with many options including auto-complete, daily challenge, points and levels, statistics, and bonus points for 3 different types of challenges. It’s quite addictive but not overly so. It’s very nice that all ads can be dismissed after just a few seconds. My only compliant is that, as with all MobilityWare apps, the ads do not respect your audio settings. That is: you can be listening to a dictated article using Pocket, or listening to music using Musi, or have your phone set to “vibrate” - all of these are paused or stopped when this game plays an ad with audio. The only exception is when I have Do Not Disturb turned on, but that’s not good if I don’t want to miss calls. So you have to kill the game to make the sound stop, go back to your audio program, start it back up, and then start Solitaire back up again. I raised this issue with the company for their Yukon Russian game and they said they’d fix it, but it seems to have only gotten worse on both games. It’s a major irritation and hence 4 stars out of 5.
Unrealistic times
by 747whaledriver on 2018/10/06 18:31
Upon completion a game, your score is posted in comparison to the highest score attained in the game. Impressive numbers, but has anyone ever looked at those scores? 120 moves in less than 30 seconds? That means the player was making an average of 4 moves a second (in many games 3-5 moves a second). These numbers are very impressive and completely unrealistic. In fact, those scores are impossible. If you have a problem solving one game, the solution may be a minimum of 160+ moves, but when you finally get a score for that game, you’ll see the highest score has fewer moves — which tells this detective that the highest scores are not at all possible. The ads are distracting and intended to be difficult to ignore. Pay for no advertising? Payment only removes the ads temporarily, as I’ve found out with this company: each time the game was revised, I’ve had to pay to remove the ads (three times now). Why not charge for the game once rather than being forced to pay to remove the ads? The cards move like they are flowing through honey in winter upon reaching using auto complete. My scores in this app are the lowest of any game I’ve played online due to card speeds.
BAIT AND SWITCH
by hockettranger on 2019/03/23 15:43
Last year I paid for the ad free version ($5.) it was great. Lately it started to slow down and be annoyingly unresponsive at each game start. I deleted it and reloaded the app from the cloud and all was well. It began to do that again today. Deleted the app went to the App Store found my iCloud download and now I have a game that I have to pay daily or monthly or annually for ad free solitaire what the hell. What a ripoff. Update! Within minutes of sending this rating I heard back from mobilityware explaining what may be occurring and provided a link to reinstall my original app. It worked. A few minutes later I received an email from Brian at mobilityware. He provided the same link but added that the source of the hiccup was possibly in IOS. Go to apps then purchases, and reinstall original app. So, from a knee jerk one star review regarding tactics, to a five star rating. I prefer this solitaire app over others and appreciated the speedy attention to my concern
Impossible to win
by Schnzr lady on 2019/06/02 15:16
I really want to like this game. I recently reloaded it on my iPad as I missed playing. However I quickly remembered why I had removed it. The odds of winning a random draw are ridiculous. I have been playing several games a day for three days and have yet to get a winning hand. I don’t rally want a winning hand every time, which is why I chose random draw, but to not even have one in over 30 rounds does not encourage me to play. I am not a hard core game player. I am sure there is someone out there who has figured out how to win every time, but I am just a little old lady who plays for pleasure and appreciates winning occasionally. Any chance you might make that possible? Update:Great customer service. Who knew you could adjust the settings to increase the % of winning hands dealt in random mode? I certainly didn’t.
Wonderful game, but disappointed, too
by Arlington Boy on 2017/12/14 18:44
I’ve been addicted to this game (and app) for several years and play for relaxation every day. I’ve been pleased with the developer’s updates and improvements to the app over time. I must say, though, that the advertisements have become decidedly more onerous over time. Interestingly, and sadly, immediately following my previous (and my first) more-positive review, of a couple years ago, the ads seemed to get quite a bit worse. That’s probably just an unfortunate coincidence bit, of course, I have no way to know. For that reason, I have until now avoided submitting a newer review. (And I really hope the game experience doesn’t worsen the very next time I play.) I’d be happy to pay-for this version of the game app, actually, if I could dispense with the time-consuming and increasingly tricky and complicated ads, because the game itself is really quite well done. As soon as I complete this review, I’ll check to see if that option is available to me, then update my impressions.
Good - just expect a lot of ads
by PhilNewby on 2018/11/27 13:11
This Solitaire game has been around since my very first iPhone. MobilityWare has been in this realm a long time, so their apps are very very good. Gameplay is smooth and has many customizable settings and options. My only complaint (albeit a small one) is the way these ad-supported games work. They just blast you with ads. Game completion, game restart, new game, etc....all trigger ads. I understand the model they have to work from to generate revenue, but it seems like there could be fewer and still show the appropriate number of ads to generate income from users. The problem is with so many options to pick from, and Solitaire being a game that's identical from one developer to another, is that the next game that has less or no ads will be the one people move to. That said, hopefully MW can tone it down some and make the overall gameplay experience less interrupted and distracting ....it's an otherwise great execution to a fun game.
Upgraded to crap.
by Tr'ed on 2019/11/16 23:11
I've played this for years and have the free version. In the beginning the "Welcome Back to the Game Center" banner was translucent and you could see through it and play through it. Then when Apple turned their look from classic to cartoon the banner got cheap and overs the game while the clock keeps running. The advertisements for the most part follow the rules of etiquette and behave. Sadly some act like Microsoft and Windows 10, the STD of software. The X to close it launches it. Some continue to play the audio long after the video is gone and the game is playing. A few just won't die and a close is the only fix. The real draw back to the free version is it can eat a battery due to all the data traffic for the adds. This can eat you phone bill too. The latest software has epilepsy. Cards strobe and change direction. Takes forever to boot. The real question is why did they try to make solitaire exciting? Still don’t see the time and battery wasting value to earn fancy monikers with one more screen before a new hand.
Latest changes are not appealing
by Meiabear on 2019/02/20 21:16
I've had this game for years, but there is something in the most recent changes that is hurting my eyes, especially when looking through the deck... Also, the changes make it look and feel like every other solitaire game out there. I've kept this one for so long because it wasn't like the others... UPDATE Thankfully the deck flip that hurt my eyes seems to be fixed (or I got used to it). However, the game now takes an obnoxiously long time to load. In the past I could open it and play a game or two within just a few minutes. Now it takes that much time just to open. And once it opens I then have to wait longer for the deck to fully load. And sometimes I think it loaded, but nothing happens when I tap the cards, so I wait even longer until that first card moves. That’s when I know I can play... Unfortunately the look and feel of this game is still so much better than others out there that I feel stuck with it.
Please, make it simple again
by Gladhehadabackup on 2019/06/11 18:38
I cannot understand why everything has to change when you had a perfectly functional game. This game was perfect before adding all this hype and extra animation junk. Nearly every time I open a new game now, daily challenge or not, the app locks up right after the deal, forcing me to restart. Not only that, but there is lag... LAG, in solitaire. How is this even possible? I’ve owned this game for years and years. It is terribly frustrating to consider deleting it for who knows what other junk might be out there. Please fix this. Just take it back to being simple. No one cares about all this extra stuff that has zero to do with what is supposed to be, a simple card game. If I want flashy, sparkles and whimsical animations, I’m sure there’s a million other games on the market to fill that void. Please fix the lag and the lockup’s. I don’t want to spend hours and hours trying a bunch of other apps to simply find one as good as this one used to be.
Yeah but
by Eetshit on 2020/07/29 19:22
Okay, I realize that setting the game to all winnable deals does not mean winnable by the standard playing method. Sometimes you have to skip a move that presents itself in order to allow for a better selection of cards the next time through the deck. The only way to win these hands is to repeatedly play the same deal and try different pathways each time until you win. At this point it becomes something other than solitaire. This must be the method you use to get the highest score, which I don’t care about. I’m up to approx. level 370 and just played at least 40 deals and none were winnable with standard play. The deals must get more difficult as you go to higher levels no matter the disclaimer. The odds of getting so many deals such as this without some manipulation by the game creators is too astronomical to be possible. I like the features of this game but it’s becoming no fun.
When does it stop!!!
by LYNRICKI on 2018/12/19 09:18
I grew up watching my mom play solitaire. Of course she used real cards. Computers were not around then. I think she played to release stress. I'm guessing I play for the same reason. BUT THE ADS DRIVE ME NUTS!! Just as I'm starting a new game an ad appears!! Why oh why do I have to watch the same ad over and over again?? Many of the ads go on and on and can't be Xed out or skipped till they're all done. Up to 5-6 seconds of my time. What a waste. I’m not going to pay for the ads not to play. There’s no guarantee that the ads won’t sneak through. I’d rather pay to play the game then pay not to see the ads. My question is why am I seeing ads for things I would never buy especially over the internet. A car? I’m sure there’s someone out there that will look at the ad and say ..... oh I didn’t think about buying a car!!?? If I was in the market to buy a car I sure as heck wouldn’t do it via internet. Show me things I’m interested in. I’m shown ads from Kohl’s a site I go on. So I know this site knows what sites I go on. I get so frustrated that I lose interest in playing.
Enjoy it a lot except...
by Donr105 on 2019/10/13 07:44
My wife and I both play the same game; she on her iPad, me on my iPhone. We contest the daily challenge with intensity. We allow ads because now and then we find some good ones to sample. I have a problem with an ad for audio books that pops up with a little too much regularity. It is impossible to get out of this ad without restarting solitaire. That's my story and... Please, please, please take those STUPID bonus points away from standard scoring. Are you being run by people who have no memory? Those freakin things were never a part of your standard scoring since it was conceived. Or is it that you’re checking to see if I’m still alive. I’m 76 and still going strong. I’ll drop you a note the minute I pass on. Hopefully you’ll have fixed this (what used to be our) perfect game.
So many people are telling you they hate the revamp
by Pawn Chic on 2019/03/16 13:09
When will you listen to your users & make adjustments to the revamp? I haven’t read all the complaints but I echo many of them. I can’t figure out why requests for change haven’t been met. For years this app has been my “go-to” to decompress, I play several times a day, everyday! The revamp has been so frustrating to me that I’m considering deleting the app altogether. The most maddening thing to me is that the characters move slowly, dragging down my time & they move at an absolute snail’s pace in the auto complete phase. Another problem is that when I am clicking along pretty fast, the characters don’t respond to my touch, even passing by something as obvious as an ace! This is not a flaw in my device. And I have serious doubts about the times of the top scores. After all the practice I’ve had all these years, I use both hands & can’t come CLOSE to the scores in the amount of time those top scores claim, certainly not since the revamp which slowed down response time, significantly! Please fix your fixes!
Ok but updates may have ruined it
by jojomike74 on 2019/02/17 16:02
I have used this app for years but the updates have made it nearly impossible to enjoy. For one thing my phone (XSMax running on latest iOS) gets sooo hot after just a couple of games and it chews up the battery . No other app does this. I can run Pokémon for hours and it never gets hot like this app. The new leveling up system is ok but pointless. I play to relax and do the daily challenge so telling me I’ve hit a new level serves no purpose as far as I can tell. I used to play before bed but my phone gets so hot I quit. I know we have to sit through ads but it would be great if I could choose to mute them all. I listen to audiobook when I play and nothing like having my book cut off to hear a lame ad or worse when I’m in a waiting room playing and the sound starts blaring. I’m willing to sit through ads but I should be able to mute them all without having to worry about some ads ignoring my preference.
Slimy ad insertion
by Applispandu on 2018/05/29 10:15
I'll touch in just 2 issues - ads and improvement. 1. Sure, like all apps, Mobility must make money by pushing ads and I know I have to pay to avoid ads. However, the problem I have is with how they push ads in a slimy and often times they push the same unattractive game ads again and again - even after I watch it and hit the cross/exit, it surfaces again. Surely, it's easy to know if a user is interested in it? Guess not. They're too lazy to do that, it seems. The could surface a different game ad or more attractive ones? But no, they don't. I used to watch the ads. Because I thought it's fair to them because I play for free. Now, I just sip my coffee or do something else while the crap is playing out. I've been playing for close to 10 years and have never ever bought something based on the ads. 2. I'd pay for the game but have not been happy with the development of Solitaire. Except for cosmetic changes, the core has remained the same in more than a decade!
They broke it.
by ratscabies on 2020/04/15 03:53
I have played and enjoyed this app since my first iPhone. This morning I updated my iOS, and it is unplayably frustrating now. Don’t know who to blame: developer or Apple. For a decade, as long as I didn’t accidentally leave my wifi in, I would get one quick advertising slide at the top of each game. Annoying, but that was the price for “free” version. Today, even with wifi off, and cellular data disabled for the app, i am assaulted with a series of childish animations pimping games I wouldn’t want even if they didn’t go straight to my annoyed out of contention list. And heaven forbid I miss the very light-so-it-blends-in skip button! Then I am blessed with additional unwanted advertising. You want my $20 a year (for solitaire?? Are you for real?) so bad you are willing to bludgeon me for it? Forget it. I carried a deck of cards in my pocket for two years in grade school. I can do it again. I’ll check back periodically to see if you fix it, but until then, I will be the first of the people lining up to not play your game anymore. Update: I don’t know what happened, but, shortly after writing the above, and update for Solitaire appeared, and it fixed whatever was going on, mostly. So this is back to the best Solitaire in the app store. But we are in pandemic lockdown. I have nothing better to than keep an on this situation...
WHY?
by Elliotskid on 2017/10/23 01:27
Addiction is putting it mildly when it comes to this game. It has been a source of escape and challenges that has melted time for me, a necessity when watching over two highly active ADHD boys. Recently, however, the app has been the source of more frustration than Congress. Why? Because the BLOODY thing CHEATS! I have the latest iPads and all updated to the current IOS so there is no conflict with respect to hardware or OS. So why are cards disappearing from the deck upon the closing rounds of the game? This is not fiction or imagined. I have not only counted the number of remaining cards at the turn, but have placed by sight the card required to win the round only to have that card not show again. I haven’t seen card manipulation like this since I rewrote the Atari Basic Blackjack. By the way, nicely coded that placement of the last ace!
Best Solitaire for iPad Air!!
by JF&KDF on 2017/07/28 15:46
I've been using this solitaire game for years now & it's great! I like card sites where I can either set my own background & cards, like this one, or just use the plain, which I like too! Most games have automatic Ace piles build for you; I like having the choice, which you do with this game. It's all in The Settings! So if you like the simplicity of playing a good challenging game of Solitaire, this is your game. Best of all it's free; the only thing I don't like or appreciate ( and it's not only on this Site ) is to pay for Ad removal, which I don't do anyway but the Ads do get frustrating, especially before EACH game-some super short, some too long. But overall, I love this game of Solitaire!! And it's never gone crashing or crazy on me.........as of yet!!
Solitare is a very enjoyable game to play, BUT!
by Pesty_Varmit on 2018/03/12 15:35
I deleted this app because their is just tooo many advertisements for me. Someone who doesn't mind all the advertisements will really like this app. AND I noticed all the apps that had excessive advertisements on my iPad were Mobilityware apps so I went through all my games and deleted all motilityware apps. I get enough advertisements on TV,radio, internet, mail and e-mails don't need them while trying to play a game. It's really too bad I had to do this because mobilityware has some very good games, very enjoyable aside from the adds. In response to developers reply: I don't mind adds if they are at beginning OR end of the game, I can't deal with adds in the middle of play. Right in the middle where it interrupts my play, not good! I understand the need to make money but why get your apps if I can't play them without interruption. If I paid for an app and this happened I would want all my money returned and the app would be deleted. Your apps remain deleted.
Vanishing Trophies (PLEASE Fix)
by Fantasy Lover 659 on 2020/09/14 00:11
I like this game a lot, but I REALLY wish it would stop making all my daily challenge progress and some of my trophies (like the July 2020 Trophy) vanish EVERY TIME I RESTART MY IPAD so if there’s a way to fix that I’d appreciate it. EDIT: While I could certainly redo the August 2020 daily challenges to get THAT trophy back, I still REALLY wish that the game would be fixed so that I could have my July 2020 daily challenge progress and trophy back too please if it isn’t too much trouble for the people who made this App to begin with. EDIT 2: And the reason why I’m saying this is because I REALLY TRULY do know and remember playing and completing ALL of the daily challenges for July 2020 (One daily challenge at a time each day.) when they came out, and I’m sure the people who made this App to begin with would want that issue fixed too, that’s all. EDIT 3: I’m sorry to say that I’ve recently gotten busy with other things (like random videos online and some other game apps that I have.) since I’m the kind of person who likes to do whatever seems interesting, so I’m not sure if I’ll have enough time to redo the August 2020 daily challenges, so if the people who work on fixing any issues that show up in this App could get both the Gold Trophies and daily challenge progress for July and August 2020 at some point I’d really and truly appreciate it.
Disappointing ad malfunctions
by Qudelkedel on 2017/11/29 16:14
I have no problem with the developers putting out a free game and then making money on ads. However, I do have a problem when the quality of an app is sacrificed to jam-pack more ads into the app. This is the case with this solitaire app. There is an ad before every new game, which is completely fine, but the problem comes when the ads malfunction. Many of the ads’ close buttons are completely unresponsive. Since they are full-screen ads, this means the app gets stuck and I have to completely kill and re-open the app. I was recently trying to re-play the same game when this happened, meaning that deal was completely lost. If you’re going to have ads, at least make them close-able. I don’t care if there’s a timer. I don’t care if there’s an ad before every game. Just make the close button WORK. I will update my review to four stars if and when this issue is fixed, since it really is a good game. This is disappointing.
Does the job!
by Cea Music on 2017/09/30 09:57
Everyone knows that those of us who play solitaire play to pass time, assist in keeping our minds sharp and most importantly the thrill of shifting through card numbers.... this version of solitaire does all that plus rewards every 10 completed games with a trophy! In addition to the fact that they keep a great record of your playing time. I can see where I've increased my speed over the years. They also have levels of play. While I'm not crazy about the scoring system for this version....I'm not sure just HOW they've come up with this system of scoring.... I do like the other thoughtful ways that they've come up with to add to this age old card game to make it more interesting to play. I've had other versions of solitaire on my phone, I've always liked this one version best......
Good brain testing game
by Harshad patel, CT on 2018/11/05 04:36
Very interactive game for testing coordination between hand reflexes and application of brain. Game tests user's skill and intelligence. With practice efficiency, speed and accuracy increases. Considering human tendency, users should be cautious to become addictive. I have seen many of coworkers solving solitaire during lunch period. If played rationally, this is an excellent game. No doubt that this is very popular and evergreen game used by very large mass. After playing only one daily challenge game per day since last 15 years I rate this as my most favorite game. This game is very good for fast ‘Brain and Hand’ coordination. With practice, game completion time can reduce. People should try to finish this game in less than 2 minutes and should target to achieve minimum score of 4000.
Get rid of ridiculous long ads
by frustrated1986 on 2019/04/16 05:59
Been playing this game for years don’t mind latest update, little buggy but getting better. Issue I have is 30 second ads for cars I would never consider buying and less so now. I understand ad revenue funds development but 30 second ads are ridiculous!! I can typically tell a winning hand in less than 30 seconds and the multiple non-winning hands in between makes waiting for a new game unbearable. All seems like a scam to get your loyal users to pay the exorbitant price for no ads. Think it is time I kick mobilityware apps to the curb and look elsewhere. Tired of the covert blackmail to pay extra for a game many of us have enjoyed for years. You want to bombard us with intrusive long ads to increase your bottom line, see how it works out when a large population of your users migrate elsewhere, less users equals less revenue. And Acura I would never purchase one of your cars due to your ads interfering with my relaxation time, big fail!
Decent
by monchimanson on 2019/01/20 05:16
I love this app for the most part. I don’t like that the random deals are still counted towards your win statistics considering that some of them can’t be won. The ads are annoying because some of them come pre-muted and don’t pause my music and then some of them aren’t muted and interrupt my music or still play sound while my phone is on silent/vibrate or with the ringer otherwise off. And some of the apps are just annoying. My grandmother plays this app and it’s sometimes hard for her to see the X to close out of an ad or when she tries to it’s sometimes too small and ends up redirecting her to the App Store or a website and being an 80 year old woman she doesn’t want to nor know how to deal with that. We both have had the issue of tapping the X repeatedly and the ad still being there.
Honestly just crap at this point
by Jaquenn on 2018/09/02 06:33
I open the app. I start a game, but first I have to watch the usual pre-game ad. The “skip” button appears. I press the skip button. I am transported by the skip button to the App Store. I navigate back to the game. There is now an “x” button for the ad beneath the first ad. I press the x button. The game crashes. I am forced to reboot. And watch another add. One of the ads is a Dunkin Donuts ad which does not fill the whole screen. Therefore the “x” button is not reachable and you have to close the app. And then watch a whole new ad, despite the fact that I can see a game loading behind the DD ad. Many of the ads have an ad beneath them so I have to X out of that one which crashes the game half the time. Rinse and repeat. I know that none of the developers for this app will honestly care, but at least the “ad” experience for other free games is somewhat manageable. Your ad system is a complete virus. Please at least make it so they are reasonably skippable and don’t crash the game.
Great Fun People -Enjoy!
by Carrie77409 on 2017/12/04 05:02
I have been Playing Mobility Ware Solitaire and 2 other games for several years and highly recommend them. The only complaint I have is that this Solitaire got “stuck” or frozen on my smart phone (not the other Mobility Ware games” & the only way I could get past the screen, was to go to the general screen & delete this app. Then I find the same app & download it back on my cell phone. My issue is (not that this is not a complaint but rather s request to the developers is that when we sign in again under the exact same name, that the 2 years of games I had completed be recognized & reloaded into this same account. Enjoy people one of the limited time watched & # completed games there is to be had (being played) for an game which I will always love & enjoy,
Solitaire
by Explanoite on 2018/01/08 05:19
Good game. Any problems I have are nitpicks or pet peeves (like monthly reminders I can change the background or card decorations: I got it the first 8 times, quit telling me). Nothing I'd take a star off for. One possible exception is the ads. Having to see an ad each time I start a game is fine. My problem is the trend towards “resistant” ads: ads where you have to wait and click close twice. A game demo loads up, making me wait the time of a normal ad just to see it start. Then I have to wait for the demo to play itself a bit. Then the X appears - but haha, just kidding, because this doesn’t close the ad, it just loads the next part of the same ad. When an ad knows I want to close it and goes “no wait, let me show you more about it” I will avoid clicking on it out of sheer spite at that point.
FABULOUS
by IGTKAA on 2019/04/07 20:33
I ABSOLUTELY love playing Solitaire!! I survived a hemmoratic stroke four years ago and the game keeps my mind working. I’m apparently a miracle and shouldn’t have survived! Everyday that I’m granted a new day and I can open my eyes, I’m BEYOND excited!! My stroke was caused by undetected high blood pressure. I’ve changed my diet and I walk EVERY day!!! I used to be 230 pounds and a size 20. Now, I’m a size 6 and feel FANTASTIC!!!! My husband has been MY BIGGEST FAN!!!! I attend a TBI Day Program and was awarded “Survivor of the Year” in 2017 and my husband was awarded “Caregiver of the Year.” Everyday I wake up, I’m BEYOND stoked to jump into the day!! I was in a wheelchair, then a walker, and now I ambulate independently!! I know this is way too much to say about this game but I’ve been to hell and back and your game rocks! Thank you so much!!!!
Best solitaire game I have found

I have played this maybe 500x's (which I acknowledge isn't a lot). I have tried others and they don't compare. The ability to tap on a card for movement(as opposed to dragging and dropping) is great. You have the daily challenges which is really fun. I did have a glitch yesterday when I tried to move cards to a free space and I couldn't, but oh well, I worked around it and still won the game. The ability to change backgrounds, card backs, etc. is fun to change it up. Only comment, get rid of the advertisements between games. Overall very good game, the go to game for me. Sorry, one last thing. The top scores, and fastest times... that has to be a computer achieving those... right? Thanks for bringing a great old fashion game to our devices!
Good pastime

This is a good pastime. It rarely hangs although it occasionally exits by itself. The animation is excellent with a number of nuances to entertain although I would prefer it if the display built slower so the detail was easier to see and appreciate especially the pyramid and sailing ship. The adds are generally tolerable with the exception of the ones with the long videos which require way to much time to download and run and frequently have to be exited twice. I understand the need for revenue but too many of these will drive me away. There are also several adds which never end like the one from personal comfort for their Veterans Day bed sale. I also find the ad bar at the bottom VERY annoying. If you must have it, put it above the game where it won't be activated accidentally.
