Good fast moving game. I start each day playing this game. It helps to wipe away any cobwebs and give me a fresh start.
Too many ads!
by wont take it on 2019/05/19 22:22
Love the game and have played for years but lately I can’t finish one hand without an ad or more popping up. Can’t you at least let one game be completed before the ads pop up. It’s getting to be too annoying to deal with.
Love the game

New disabling bugs

Newly with the latest update the app crashes in the middle of the games. Restart starts the game over. I will have to wait for a fix before th3 game becomes useable again.

I just download the app and I can not use it. It just gets stuck every time I try to play. I have close the app so many times now, download the app again and it still has the same problem. I couldn’t even get to try the game.

I enjoy playing Spider Game because it relaxes me and love to try & get all the cards, with or without redo!
Less adds
by builtmomma on 2019/05/17 00:19
The Game is fun. The ability to change the theme of the cards and the board is amusing. Fewer adds for other games would be better!
Not worth it anymore
by Mara_Lilim on 2019/05/17 00:00
I always loved MW’s solitaire games and was pretty disappointed to see that they went to premium subscription route. You already make money through intrusive advertising and now you’re making people pay for things that shouldn’t be in a solitaire game. Not only that but the game pops up a “buy our subscription” message every five minutes with no option for “do not ask me again”. Ended up uninstalling and ended up getting the Microsoft Solitaire app. Not only does it have multiple solitaire variations but it doesn’t pressure you into a subscription.
U hardly ever lose!
by Bum10 on 2019/05/16 21:43
More fun to lose occasionally so u can do it again & make different choices to see if u can win.
Ads
by Tlh435 on 2019/05/16 21:14
I paid for no ads long time ago and the ads never stopped. I had close to 5000 games and you wiped them out and started over with stupid names. Now you say no ads if I pay you 4.99 every three months. Are you people STUPID! It’s a no brainer game, there is no thinking involved, that’s why I liked it, just to vegetate. Wow, what a load of dodo. As for me the app is gone.
Wordscape ad keeps closing out my game
by Happy utmost on 2019/05/16 20:53
This has happened before with other ads on this app. It is so frustrating to play a game, almost get to the end and you can't finish it! I have been playing this loved game for 6-7 years probably daily. Please fix this forever!
Fun game, way to share across devices?
by User12460 on 2019/05/16 14:53
I play this game on my ipad. I recently downloaded it to my Android phone as well. I don’t see any way to share my profile (e.g. level, setting preferences) across devices.

Ads in the middle of a hand?
by Doefyre on 2019/05/15 12:13
It’s bad enough when a game has ads at the end of each hand but in the middle of a hand is really annoying. I have several mobility ware games and all but one do this.

It’s way better than all the other Solitaires thank you for making a game like this
Advertisements Too Long
by San Antonio Player on 2019/05/10 02:06
The developers have started putting in 30 second and longer advertisements without the ability to skip through them. I suggest finding an alternative version.

by aaacccjjj on 2019/05/09 18:24
This game has been ruined for me by all the unsolicited games that pop up every time I attempt to play a game. It is impossible to play without dealing with all these unwanted items. By the time I have the spider board up my pleasure in playing is gone. What happened to my original game without all the added interference?

Ads ruin the game
by squirrelhouse on 2019/05/09 14:34
The ads are not only intrusive, but they create stress. You have to wait 10 to 30 seconds to return to the game. For most ads, you have to say ‘no’ TWICE before you can return to the game. I just want to relax!

Outrageous advertising
by buedypion on 2019/05/09 11:29
To start a game, you most often are forced to watch a 30 second or longer advertisement and now while you’re playing the game you’re interrupted multiple times forced to view multiple advertisements. Way over the top, time to look for a new platform for this game. It’s not a game site, it’s a forced advertising site.
Ads in the middle of game
by ChrisStockwell on 2019/05/09 04:43
I’m fine with viewing ads between games in exchange for playing a free game, but when the ads interrupt the game itself, that’s just not ok. It messes with my train of thought. Put the ads between games and I’ll give 4 stars- give me ads that I only need to X out once and I’ll give it 5 stars (why do I need to X out of the same ad twice? No means no).

I can handle the annoyance of ads, but not ads with no exit button. Twice this app has locked up with an ad that leaves you no option but to delete the app.

I’ve been playing Spider for about three years every day. I love the challenge of seeing how many moves it takes and how long my game is. Unfortunately the new update seems to of taken away those two features. I hope you bring it back.

This app is very good. It’s simple and easy to use, and it has a nice look. I do have one problem with it, which is that when it’s flipped into landscape mode, sometimes when I try to pull down a stack, it pulls down the notification center, and I’ve found this to be unavoidable.

Love this game
by Premieangel on 2019/04/29 18:25
I really enjoy this app. I love playing the daily challenges and random shuffles. I’m not competing with anyone but myself. It’s a great distraction, relaxation and stress tool. I usually begin my day by playing the daily challenge on either my phone or tablet. Then I’ll play it at some point on the other device. I rated the game a 4-star, because I have had some issues with it stopping, closing out of the game and restarting after installing Apple’s 12.2 software. Frequently it will be at the beginning of the game after restarting. It makes playing the game frustrating, especially if you don’t want to start over. I’ve found it doesn’t count that against you ref 1st play! Hopefully that will be addressed soon!

I loved this game, but now it has loud video ads. I like to listen to YouTube videos while I play. It shuts the videos off. If you are in bed with someone sleeping, or in a doctors waiting room, it’s very disturbing. I’ll try another brand or stop using games if they insist on loud video ads.
Excessive advertising.

Can't get in and when you do it's slow, it sticks, it freezes and it disappears! Please fix whatever bug is contaminating the game! March 30, 2019, Boring. Dissappears, slooowww. Readying to leave if it's not fixed. Understand that candy crush is quite enjoyable. April 25, 2019. Sticks, dissappears no longer enjoyable. If it doesn't get better in the next day, bye bye.

Buggy but generally fun
by chsufivkak on 2019/02/12 19:12
I sometimes get stuck on the transition from “Mobility Ware” to the game, and it just sits there for maybe a flat 20 seconds. Then, when you load up a game, you have to wait another 20 seconds before you can start moving cards around. Then, if you go to another app, or really you don’t even have to go to another app. If you double press the home button, then tap back on Spider Solitaire, it will still make you wait about 20 seconds before it lets you do anything DESPITE you maybe only being off the game for less than a single second. It’s annoying when you leave for a split second to reply to someone, then come back to the solitaire app, have to wait before you can do anything and by the time you can, your friend has already texted you back. Sometimes, if you’re gone from the app for more than a couple seconds, then the whole app restarts and you have to wait through the whole loading process again and everything. However, I haven’t found another solitaire format that I like more and this is the only game I found that works in portrait mode. Just get rid of the bugs!!! If other apps can be immediately responsive after returning to the app after a short second, then so can some simple card game.
I Love this Card Game!
by neeseybug on 2017/10/09 15:35
I play Spider every single day. It calms my nerves, erases anxiety and keeps my mind active. The Best feature is the daily challenge. I don't come close to the low scores so I don't have to compete! I love that. I just go at my own pace, I sometimes arrow back all the way to the beginning and start again and I always win! As long as I don't completely close the game and get a whole new hand, I just keep playing the hand I started with until I win that hand. I try to get crowns for completing the hand every day and it usually takes me less than 15 minutes. After I do the daily challenge, I usually choose to continue to play selecting "play a winning hand." Some of them are difficult and take me a long time but I know it IS winnable so I work on it until I win. I don't Have to play a hand that I don't know if it's even possible to win! I hate having to give up and lose at any game. I love the Winning Hand! Great graphics after you win too. It's really fun to put my own personal photos as my table background too! That's a really cool feature! I never get tired of what I'm looking at because I can easily change my background And the backs of the cards. This game is Great!
Great look, bad ads, airplane mode almost unplayable
by unohav_1 on 2018/05/20 16:54
I understand the need for ads, and a popup between hands showing other games Mobility makes is FINE. I’d even be willing to check one out if it looked neat. Then the animated ads with sound started, and you HAVE to watch for a period of time before an X would appear to close them. This went even further, as ads would randomly put the X in different corners so you never know where to look, and even then sometimes the X would either not work at all, or clicking it would open the app store to the game. This is RIDICULOUS waiting 30+ seconds on ads you cannot close between every single hand. I play games like this to relax, and this BS is far from relaxing. A tip to help was put your phone/tablet in airplane mode actually brought those types of ads to a halt with only single-frame ads you can just close. Yay until a few months back, when this suddenly started causing problems with a hand being dealt. There’s LONG pause before anything at all happens, then a single-frame ad pops up where clicking the X greys it out, and another LONG pause before it closes. I’ve spent upwards of five minutes dealing with this trying to play ONE frickin hand. I’m done. I will never download another Mobility game.
Love it, still the best solitaire!
by Snowy Home on 2018/10/18 07:25
For the first time I had trouble with the game. It hard crashed my iPad and the end result was that I had to reinstall. I lost two years of gold trophies. 😟 still love the game but I'm having difficulty with the upgraded game and find some changes irritating. For one thing, the highlighted and darkened cards in some of the game styles. I finally got it to more like the old version so I can enjoy it. Still annoyed that I lost all that history, but still playing and it's still the best. Casual, no pressure! I enjoy the game every time I play,even keeping up with the weekly challenges👌. I have had very few games which I enjoyed without getting annoyed and it's a real pleasure to have found this one. I can' spend cash in games but with this one I don' have to spend. The ads are inserted with little intrusion and my sessions leave me satisfied with the interlude. Thank you to the developers for a good looking, challenging yet fun game!
Bad update
by Saswin11 on 2018/12/16 15:27
I have loved this game, I’m a paying customer, but I’m disappointed with the current update. Now the columns no longer shrink up when you tap a very long column; this makes it harder to work with the bottoms of the columns. I got into a situation yesterday where I was trying to move an entire column near the center of the screen. Each time I tried to grab the column, the iPhone pulled down its short “swipe down” screen, interfering with the game. I was never able to move that column, I had to give up on it. I never had that problem with the game prior to this update. Finally, the new design for the menu at the bottom of the screen takes up more space than it used to, which is not a good thing. I want to go back to the older version. I have always rated this game as five stars; now it drops to three stars. I hate “upgrades” that crow about the improvements but actually worsen the game. New themes are uninteresting if they come along with changes that worsen what used to be the best Spider in the App Store. Sarah

by April1956 on 2017/08/08 20:03
I started with cards and played solitaire and then discovered it on my phone. Spider solitaire was a natural progression. This is just a nice way to wake myself up in the am. I also read a book for pleasure and a bible and a informational book with my bible. I have around 8 different games on my phone. I don't do them every day except daily challenge solitaire, spider, and some other ones. The games take the place of commercials also. These things take the place of constant tv for me. They go with me to appointments also. The ads don't bother me because the game is free and you can get rid of them soon. You can also turn your wifi off in settings if they do mess with your game. That usually doesn't happen but you do have that option if you happen to get a bad game. No wifi...no ads... Id be miserable without my games or books to keep me company
I’ve always enjoyed playing spider solitaire until today
by 65smiley on 2019/02/01 07:18
I would definitely give this fun game 5 stars until today.I’ve always loved playing spider solitaire with all the colorful backgrounds and fun card faces but today I wasn’t happy with the added “burst of color that spews out of the card when you line it up to match the same color in the card sequence” It’s very annoying to see it displayed on the screen each time you move the card or multiple cards to the matching color row of cards. I don’t know if I described it accurately but hopefully the developers will delete it from the game. This is only my opinion and I’m sure there are many players who might like the “burst of color that are red hearts and diamonds and black spades and clubs”. But, to me it’s an unnecessary addition to the game. I’ve recommended this game to my friends and family. It’s a fantastic game that challenges your cognitive thinking process. I apologize for being picky but the new addition really bothered me.
Good game, intrusive ads
by writergirl_xx on 2017/12/15 13:55
I like the daily challenges. It's relaxing to play a game in the morning while waiting for my train. It's a free app, so I expected some ads, but when I originally downloaded the app, I was pleasantly surprised by how few there were. There was one every other hand (or more often, if it takes you a little longer to finish a game). But now they're everywhere. You can't necessarily exit out of them after a few seconds. Some are multi-part, so if you exit out of one, there's a second page and you have to wait to exit out of that one too. The makers have even added one to a menu option, so if you click for a new game, the first option isn't deal a new hand but download whatever new game. This wouldn't be so annoying if there wasn't also a menu for games they also want you to download. I get that it's a free game, but calm down on the ads.
Horrible Adds
by Crib~<>,s on 2018/02/23 19:09
I like the game but the adds are horrible. I understand that a free app needs to have adds to make money. The problem is that a lot of the adds are designed poorly. For example, I have an iPad Pro and use the special stylus. Some of the adds can be deleted clicking on the X with my stylus, others required me to use my finger. It’s really irritating because often there are 2 adds in a row and the second one won’t respond to the stylus even though the X dims when you flick on it. The second type of irritating adds changes my screen from landscape to portrait. I then have to turn my iPad to find out where the X is and then after deleting the add I have to turn my iPad up side down in order to get it to go back to the landscape mode. I guess the advertisers think they will get my attention by doing these things and they are right. The problem is that because of their irritating techniques I would never buy there products.
Greed ruined the game. ADVERTISERS AVOID
by AvidHunter1 on 2019/01/24 12:02
I previously wrote the review below, and am now updating my review. While the game owners have ceased running 30-second ads that are geographically irrelevant, their new deception tactic is extremely disturbing. They now run advertisements that present an “X” to close the advertisement, but rather than closing the ad, the click opens the App Store to enable the download of another app. This is the definition of bait and switch. When you present a common command and knowingly switch the meaning of the command, you have committed your business to be one built on deception, and there is no limit to your immorality. ADVERTISERS SHOULD AVOID DOING BUSINESS WITH THIS DEVELOPER. This game was ok to good until the rights owner thought it would be cute to have multiple 30-second ads that cannot be escaped and aren’t even geographically related to the company paying for the ads. If your company pays for ad placement with this company, I urge you to stop. The company does no targeted analysis for who is targeted. You are wasting your advertising budget with this company.
Been loving it for years
by Starsphynx on 2018/12/13 02:03
I’ve been playing this game for years, ever since I got my first IPhone. It must fit my personality. I like that I can replay the same deal or back up and replay moves. I find this very satisfying, because we don’t get many opportunities for do-overs in life. And it allows me to stubbornly refuse to give up, until I’ve played the deal so many times that I either win, or am satisfied that there is no possible way to win it. It tends to be my go to game when I need to kill a few minutes, like waiting in the doctors office. It absorbs my attention and makes time run fast, but I can look up from it when I need to, without losing the game. I do r know what people are talking about regarding ads. I don’t see any ads. Maybe I paid for an upgrade way back when.
Already did a review, but okay...
by MysticTwilight92677 on 2017/11/08 06:51
When I last wrote a review my rating was actually better than this. So, I hold no hopes that this review will be posted, either (perhaps explaining why they have such a high rating). Since my last review the ads have gotten worse. My last review explained that I can handle an ad between each an every game, but when it interrupts game play it's enough to make me not want to play this version of Solitaire. Now the ads make noises and if I'm listening to something else it will stop what I'm listening to and it may or may not start it up again after the ad. While I willing to deal with it for the love of this particular version of Spider, today tipped severely in the other direction this evening when I went to go finish a game I started this morning and the game was gone. I assume I took a loss for it. I know in the grand scheme of life it isn't a big deal, but I have a choice and I chose to play another version. Hope you fix it, but it's too late for me.
Addicting
by genlock on 2018/06/10 03:06
I love this game! This is the only game you will ever want to play. Customize the board and cards. Pick how many suits. Choose to look at hints or not. Replay losing games if you want. Undo moves if they don't work out. So many options. And see how you compare to other players (although that sometimes makes me wonder why I don't do as well but I don't really care). Hate the ads and just when you think you've clicked out of it a second one immediately appears. The X doesn't appear quickly enough so you are forced to stare at the screen until it does. Would like more clarification about scoring points, tricks to win, (the Show me how to win feature goes too fast) and more stats for more playing.
Totally Addicted!
by Honest Gab on 2018/04/24 18:28
I love playing “ Spider” at night before I go to sleep. I gets my mind of things that would normally keep me awake. I love this game and I can’t say enough, I’m totally addicted! I love trying to challenge myself to solve the games more quickly and smoothly. It’s a games that doesn’t bog you down watching long advertisements and wow, I mean I keep telling myself “just one more hand and I’ll stop ..” ya right! I have lots of other games to play but just keep coming back to this one. Ohh, best of all - I’ve been playing this game for FREE! You can purchase different options I guess and at this point I probably will. I’ve been deleting some of my other games to keep from bogging my phone up too much. Get this APP, you won’t be sorry!!!
Game great but ads kill the enthusiasm
by Adobemom on 2018/05/10 22:05
the ads are out of control, beyond annoying & there should be an option to block them- they take an enormous amount of the pleasure from playing the actual games- the modulated analogy could easily be that it is like packing a nice gift for someone but using rotten hard boiled eggs as packing material. They do not encourage me to buy the other games, they just detract from enjoyment of the game i choose- big time. Maybe I should just rip them each apart in a review in every social media resource...& ask others to do the same. Maybe then this ceaseless poor judgement on the part of those who control the ceaseless ads will END! Those making these decisions need an intensive education in what actually motivates the public to buy & what are the absolute "do not use" techniques - clearly they are clueless
Good game
by Techie 1111 on 2018/11/25 22:14
The new version needs a few bug fixes for one it is hard to always see the suit of cards that are in the stacks without moving cards to look number to sometimes you’re in the middle of a game and it’s going to deal another card and the screen just goes blank, so you lose the game although sometimes you can come back in and it’s there. Sometimes the game seems to slow down to a crawl and you can slowly watch the movement of cards I don’t know if this has been corrected but I did press on one card and not get that card to get something else happening it’s seem to have nothing to do with what I was touching. It’s still a good game much faster dealing then summer games easier regards to another games like it.
Have this, love it, really can be a challenge!
by agypsyfoot2 on 2017/06/16 04:26
I play this daily, sometimes to work out the previous days challenge I could not solve at that time. Lately it seem to have bugs, out intended. I left 2 unsolved hands from May, which I intended to work on this month so as to complete the whole Daily Challenges for .May, but it tells me I am a new player, thus have no last month, strange because I have been playing for months and take pride in solving the challenges. So, you I'll enjoy thus game if you are the type who hangs in there, but be prepared for problems with the game. Still love the game, but never regained the last month. Beware, this game can become a passion to Solve!
Complaint (resolved)
by The people's turn on 2018/06/13 23:21
May 3rd, 2018. Couldn’t finished the daily puzzle. Next day, tried that puzzle again And failed. Revisited that same puzzle again and couldn’t do it. Like a week ago, I tried again, following EXACTLY what the hints told me to do, and ONLY what the hints told me to do. Tried it again recently. Did what the hints told me to do. STILL couldn’t solve it. What I’m saying is, May 3rd is impossible to beat, so I can’t get a gold trophy for that entire month. And I REALLY wanna get a gold trophy for May, because I don’t have ANY gold trophy’s at all. This is bad, but I really love the game! It’s so fun and addictive! Edit: I tried it again, and I completed it. So... yeah forget what this review said. 5 stars!
Annoying adds that reset your game
by mmcmsp on 2018/07/12 07:01
Love this BUT it has a huge drawback. Most of adds take us to the app store even when clicking on close and, when we get out the app store, it's like you just open the app, no game is there! This is so annoying. Why not offer a paid/premium version instead of making us watching ads? Yes I totally understand you need to make money but why not make money actually selling the app and offering a good development keeping your game in the screen. Also when ads are in landscape mode, the game comes back in landscape and doesnt come back to portrait... You have to leave the app to fix it and the app comes back without anything on... even when portrait mode is locked on both phone and app settings. Love the game. Hate the app. Today was a record of resets and I'm really upset, looking for another solitaire spider, paid, with zero ads, to dive in.
Love this game
by Premieangel on 2019/04/29 18:25
I really enjoy this app. I love playing the daily challenges and random shuffles. I’m not competing with anyone but myself. It’s a great distraction, relaxation and stress tool. I usually begin my day by playing the daily challenge on either my phone or tablet. Then I’ll play it at some point on the other device. I rated the game a 4-star, because I have had some issues with it stopping, closing out of the game and restarting after installing Apple’s 12.2 software. Frequently it will be at the beginning of the game after restarting. It makes playing the game frustrating, especially if you don’t want to start over. I’ve found it doesn’t count that against you ref 1st play! Hopefully that will be addressed soon!
Spider Solitaire rules!
by Aragon4004 on 2017/09/19 00:19
I really have become quite addicted to spider solitaire especially is this version. I travel often for business and it relieves the boredom on a plane, or waiting from in the airports. It's one of my favorite games. This version is especially enjoyable because it allows me to just tap the cards for a move instead of always having to drag and drop. I'm really glad I discovered this version and I highly recommend it. You can set difficulty levels and deals. Glad I picked it up!! I do find the pop up ads annoying and wish there was a way it would allow me to avoid them. Other than that it's great.

by Cl1488 on 2017/07/24 11:14
I enjoy playing this game. Sometimes I play late into the night and others early in the morning before the kids get up either way it is a relaxing way to pass time. I noticed that where there used to be only 1 ad before each game it has now doubled to 2 ads. Not a big deal to me as it only takes a few seconds to close them. I usually play with the volume off because my wife is asleep next to me while I'm playing so the ad volume isn't an issue as others have mentioned. Lastly, I Have never had a game interrupted by an advertisement. If I had been interrupted by an ad I would be very aggravated just like the other commenters/reviewers. All in all a very fun game.
The fatal flaw with mid-game ads
by Kay_Rock on 2018/09/05 17:15
I don’t mind ads in between games as a reasonable method of revenue generation. However, ads are notoriously buggy. Imagine you’re in the middle of a particularly challenging daily challenge, and you’re down to that final deal and you know you’re going to finally win after a long time of puzzling it out. You hit that last pile of cards all excited, only to have an ad fail to load. Blank screen. No X, no way out. You wait several minutes hoping it will resolve itself, but no such luck. Your only choice is to force quit the game. And of course all of your progress is lost. Start over or give up. This is just ridiculous. Devs, if you cannot guarantee that your ads will load properly and then close, you have no business putting them in the middle of a game.
Live the game, can't turn the sound off the ads
by Stasha Period on 2017/09/05 03:22
I've been playing this for way too long way too often. I love it. I don't mind the ads, it's fine I get it. Make your money. But with the last update I can't turn the sound off! Even with my phone on silent and the game on silent. I play at night. Helps me shut my brain off but the volume is SO loud. I can't play any more. It's stressing me out. I like the sound of the cards flipping. I like that I can make the background a red, easier on the eyes for evening screens. I like the daily challenges. But this sound on the ads thing... I'm downloading another app now. I'll try back after the next update. I hope they remove it.
Mrslgl
by Grannys28.13 on 2017/09/24 17:37
I am among those who love this game but get frustrated with all the ads. I very seldom have a game that isn't interrupted by at least two ads. This hasn't stopped me from playing but I sure wish I didn't have to put up with the ads. I usually play on my iPad for the convenience of the larger screen and it's a fairly old model and that may be why I get booted out of a game now and then when trying to get rid of an ad. I have spider solitaire on my phone too but it doesn't have the daily challenge which I really enjoy. It is faster to get out of the ads on my phone however. Love the game but not the ads!!!!
Ads in Middle of Game are ANNOYING
by BrucesDaddy on 2019/02/17 15:46
I downloaded this developer’s version of Spider Solitaire because Spider is my favorite solitaire game, and I wanted to check this one out. I like the daily challenge, but have grown to DESPISE the ads, that frequently interrupt the actual game. I don’t mind ads, and I realize the developer needs the revenue, but I will be concentrating on the moves I want to make, when suddenly some woman’s finger is popping blocks on some other game, or a toilet is overflowing, or angry birds are being wiped out, or Publishers Clearinghouse wants to give me a million dollars. These interruptions cause me to completely lose my train of thought. I will go back to another developer’s version, that displays a simple ad message at the top of the screen (and has no ads at all when not on Wifi).
Great app great game but ads lock up often
by Bf121 on 2018/07/24 02:52
I got a message to let you know which adds are locking up. Several do but the worst is fishDom and the one where you click on boxes and they blow up the problem is they freeze and don't give an X to get rid of the ad. This is a great app with a fun card game but it is very aggravating when the ads don't have a way to get back to the game or if they lock up and you have to shut the game/app completely down and reload to continue playing. I know you can fix this because it doesn't happen every time just way too often.
The Right Stuff
by Sulawesi on 2018/01/31 14:41
I win about 20% of the time, which is about the right success rate to not get bored with winning too often nor frustrated because it's too hard. I like games where you have to think ahead 2-3 moves and this one is perfect for that. Update: In the “Show me how to win” tutorial, watch closely. When there is one stack left to deal, towards the end of the demonstration, it deals out the remaining stack. There are two open lines when it does this. This is not supposed to be allowed. You can’t deal out a stack unless all of the lines are occupied with cards.
Update detracts and downgrades
by SweetnSexyLips on 2018/11/20 22:45
I hate this update!!! The card face backgrounds have fully changed, I want the option of the old Card Face Background back... Much easier to see on the phone with the cards being either all black or all red.. and the positioning of the cards is not great either...I had family and friends on that background and now the layout and positioning of the card layout makes it intrusive and I can't get it the way it was... This is an example of how a Newer update is not always better, I don't care how much you paid your tech designer for something new, the older version was much easier to see and customize... This version on November 2018 is a downgrade... And I have played this everyday for years... I'm now looking at other card games because of this..
Annoying
by Oberdegober on 2017/12/02 17:23
Annoying ads. Break thru voices on silent. Hidden X's. Some ads can't be stopped. More annoying then it is worth. Think I will just stop. A few months later. Seems to have improved. Fewer break through voices on silent. Still some X's hidden in background. Repetitive ads that often can't be dismissed. Later. Gotten better. Fewer long ads. Not as annoying. Seemed to have improved after I joined Facebook. New review. Faster, fewer hidden X's but new adds are questionable and some appear to be downright scams i.e. Rolex Daytona's for less than $200; claims of health violations at shopping malls without naming specific restaurants-one mall has 20 high end establishments! What is going on?
Get rid of the ads!
by Puzzler61 on 2017/10/02 23:01
I enjoy this app/game very much. But I can only give it 3 stars because of the excessive ads which pop up every time you go to deal another set of cards. These ads are a great pain, and some won't go away when you click the x to make it go away and you have to shut down the app and then return to the app. Then another thing which is annoying is that I upgraded my phone and when the app was transferred to my new phone I lost all of my previous games, which was about a years worth of successfully completed games.
New “levels” with really stupid names are annoying
by Darcy2222 on 2019/02/08 15:57
I’ve been playing this game for more than three years and find it challenging and relaxing. The addition of more ads and longer ads over the years has been annoying. But with their new “fix”, they’ve taken the game to super annoying! The addition of levels with stupid names and points, which mean nothing and do nothing, is just ridiculous! I guess some idiot at the company had to come up with a new idea for the game to justify their salary. So they came up with this. Please come up with a way to make levels and points an option. Or better yet get rid of it entirely. It was not an improvement!!!
Annoying af
by STACKS LOVER on 2018/04/21 13:09
The game itself is really good... there are a couple things that are VERY annoying. For one when you are playing and you switch over to another app then get back into this one, it shows the mobilityware thing and it stays there for a long time. Another thing is when you win then close the game and come back to play later and you click the play button an add pops up no matter how many times you try to get rid of it and you can’t play the dang game. I know games have to have some ads but dear lord make it where we can at least get out of it. Then sometimes when you actually get past the ad it still won’t load the cards.
Classic Spider Game
by Card Fan! on 2018/03/03 14:43
I play this game every day. Each game provides the option to create your own unique game experience especially for you. It is a great addicting classic spider solitaire game that is both relaxing and fun to play each and every time The reason i gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the ads. Each game has 2 ads that are either at the beginning or middle of the game. Although the player can exit off the ads, they do interrupt the excitement of the game. **Please place the ads at the END of the game before game 2 starts instead of in the beginning or middle of the first solitaire game.**
Fun way to pass time waiting or during commercials!!!
by Georgia Bugdog on 2017/11/01 18:12
I hate waiting... Doctors offices, Dentist visits, long lines at Walmart, at restaurants, on hold on the phone, during commercials while watching my favorite TV programs..... This game is my favorite time pass during these moments that would otherwise strain my sanity!!! By the time I enjoy a round or two, time has passed and I'm in a better mood to move on with my task at hand. Only thing I don't like is the forced ads and having to wait to exit an ad. Otherwise I have no complaints and live this game of Spider!!!
Spider
by Kidlitenin on 2018/12/26 10:07
Since I've loaded this app not a day has gone by that I haven't played it for a while. Addictive and enjoyable. If I could have only one game this would be it. I have a string of Golden Trophies on my calendar that goes 3 years solid and the month before that has 29 out of 30 simply because I didn’t understand the game yet. I realize that this is on the easiest level but I was in a vehicle wreck and received brain damage. I believe this has helped me and I look forward to it daily. Usually have daily puzzle solved by bout 3am so I don’t forget it.
Latest update not an upgrade
by thisisarandomnickname8675309 on 2019/02/01 23:04
This was a 5 star game until the latest update. I’ve been playing for years and this is the first update that I think is a major step back. It is no longer possible to tap on cards quickly. There is a delay after moving a card. I have to wait wait wait. The daily challenges are retained for 1 month only? Really? You cannot keep a year of history? Store it locally. Generally too many fancy, kitchy, neato things that those of us play every day don’t want or need. Those things just get in the way. I won’t complain about the ads in a great free game... but please think about us, the “power users.”
Challenging but lots of fun!
by Lorsm on 2017/12/21 13:31
The first thing I do in the morning is play this game. It’s challenging, especially when it looks as though there are no possible moves, the revealed cards are a jumble and you groan that you may have to start over. But often perseverance and careful observation win the day. I like to use logic to think my way through such instances: now if I move that Ace it frees up the 3 which I can then move to the 2…but wait, moving the Jack to free the 8 would be better…. I’ve got my friend hooked on the game also. Love the jeweled crowns!
Ads, Maybe-but what did you expect for Free?
by Science Rocks 10! on 2017/06/18 00:15
Several people mention the ads but they are very easy to dismiss and a mute button appears that resets as soon as the ad is dismissed. Ads last a maximum of 3-4 seconds before you can dismiss them and the spider game is very easy to use. I like it better than any other spider app I have tried. Honestly, I don't know what people expect for a free app. And they don't put you on any lists or try to sell you anything else other than the quick ads that I pay no attention to!
Big bite
by Rain, go away on 2019/03/26 18:02
This game is addictive. Once I start playing, i forget what time it is or how early I have to get up in the morning. I can feel smart one second and stupid the next when the prompts show me what I was too dull to see myself. Lots of fun and good brain exercise. My single frustration is the constant interruptions of ads and offers to download other free apps. I could tolerate a few of these as I understand the need for ads. But it's way too frequent and the audio is so loud and raucous with some of them it's just alarming.
Daily challenge
by MTBrider70 on 2017/11/23 03:52
I try to play the Daily Challenge each morning after breakfast. I know that it’s possible to win each hand. My goal is two-fold: try to win the first hand (usually do); and try to complete all jeweled crowns each month. I’ve only managed one month so far! Invariably I miss a day somewhere. I wish that there was an additional “cup” for anyone completing a month’s jeweled crowns: a platinum cup. And getting your name on a special list! I’ll never be the fastest or the fewest moves... but a Platinum Cup would be an achievement!!! Thanks!
Backgrounds and Card Backs
by Bev.. on 2018/06/28 03:49
I’m so tired of what is offered. I don’t want childish or Holiday themes. More solid colors (ex: shades of yellow, brown, tan, different blues, greens, muted red) and different patterned card backs (like wallpaper for adults) would be appreciated. I don’t want a photo. I have been fully aware of that option all along. I don’t want to have to find posters or whatever of colors to photograph for your game. Your marketers should use a group to find how people respond to your choices. The card backs and background choices are really very bad and “Holiday” choices are the worst. Pictures are a distraction.
Look Forward to the Challenge
by Give Me the Last Version Back on 2018/12/10 16:05
I’ve had this app on my iPad for years and love the daily challenge. I always get it solved —I’m not too speedy and sometimes it takes a few tries. Just a few days ago I installed it on my new iPhone and I can’t figure out what’s going on. I just can’t lose! One try, every time better than the last, very few moves compared to my usual. Has the game been dumbed down? Is there a more difficult option? It’s not all that much to know I’m going to win without even thinking about it! Still love it on my iPad though.
❤️
by RahrahSC on 2017/11/22 19:24
This is one of my favorite apps and one I play every single day. The Daily Challenge is fun and I like the many options for play that are available. There is only thing I would change. I’m willing to pay a small fee for no ads, but that’s not a choice. The ads are annoying and some are very long for an app ad, but they usually only appear at the beginning of a game. Other than that, Spider Solitaire is wonderfully designed and much fun to play. Very challenging sometimes, too!
Buggy
by Vlittle72 on 2019/04/04 03:05
Overall, this is a great app. I really enjoy playing it. I especially like the Daily Challenge. I play it everyday so I can get a crown with jewels. Unfortunately, my efforts disappear. I will play, get the crown with jewels, only for that to disappear the next day. I replay the day before’s game and I get a crown without the jewels. I realize it’s rather petty of me to bring this up, but I am competitive and I’d love to have a month of crowns with jewels. That isn’t possible until this bug is fixed. It doesn’t happen everyday. Maybe it happens 5 or 6 times a month.
Love the game, hate the adds!
by tyggea on 2018/04/11 15:14
The game is great. There are a lot of options you have to tailor it to your own preferences. I play it when I want to kill time, usually waiting for an appointment. When I first downloaded the game a few years ago, the ads were pretty normal and could be skipped. Now they have ads for these awful games that I would never play and they hide the skip button hoping I will accidentally hit the play button. So obnoxious! I still like the game, but the ads are annoying and make me less likely to want to play
New version issues
by Serafinamia on 2018/12/02 16:22
I have played this game fairly extensively for several years and enjoyed it. However, the new version that recently downloaded itself seems to have some major problems: specifically, causing my phone to overheat and drain the battery. Also, when this issue starts, the cards become jerky as they move, all indicating bugs in the program. Hope you can fix this, as otherwise I can’t continue to play.
Thanks Dad!!

I am nearing the anniversary of my first year of playing Spider Solitaire and I enjoy it greatly. After watching my Dad play & seeing how much he liked it I knew I had to give it a try. I am disabled & there are days it is a challenge to get up & move, so it's nice to have something that helps to take my mind off the pain. I especially enjoy playing the daily challenges. Spider adds are usually much shorter & also fewer than many others. I thank Mobility Ware for offering Spider Solitaire for free.
Ads too much
by Canarybbb on 2019/01/08 11:35
I like the game itself however, here I am playing to try to beat my last time and an advertisement pops up. There’s not much chance my time will improve with an ad in the middle of the game. In between each and every game there is at least one ad. Just because you play the same ads over and over and over, it does not incline me to get what you are trying to brainwash me with. Also when I do get to the x I often have to hit it several times before it moves on. Thank you for listening.

Good fast moving game. I start each day playing this game. It helps to wipe away any cobwebs and give me a fresh start.
Too many ads!
by wont take it on 2019/05/19 22:22
Love the game and have played for years but lately I can’t finish one hand without an ad or more popping up. Can’t you at least let one game be completed before the ads pop up. It’s getting to be too annoying to deal with.
Love the game

It keeps my mind alert
New disabling bugs
by fog42 on 2019/05/18 04:43
Newly with the latest update the app crashes in the middle of the games. Restart starts the game over. I will have to wait for a fix before th3 game becomes useable again.

I just download the app and I can not use it. It just gets stuck every time I try to play. I have close the app so many times now, download the app again and it still has the same problem. I couldn’t even get to try the game.

I enjoy playing Spider Game because it relaxes me and love to try & get all the cards, with or without redo!
Less adds
by builtmomma on 2019/05/17 00:19
The Game is fun. The ability to change the theme of the cards and the board is amusing. Fewer adds for other games would be better!
Not worth it anymore
by Mara_Lilim on 2019/05/17 00:00
I always loved MW’s solitaire games and was pretty disappointed to see that they went to premium subscription route. You already make money through intrusive advertising and now you’re making people pay for things that shouldn’t be in a solitaire game. Not only that but the game pops up a “buy our subscription” message every five minutes with no option for “do not ask me again”. Ended up uninstalling and ended up getting the Microsoft Solitaire app. Not only does it have multiple solitaire variations but it doesn’t pressure you into a subscription.
U hardly ever lose!
by Bum10 on 2019/05/16 21:43
More fun to lose occasionally so u can do it again & make different choices to see if u can win.
Ads
by Tlh435 on 2019/05/16 21:14
I paid for no ads long time ago and the ads never stopped. I had close to 5000 games and you wiped them out and started over with stupid names. Now you say no ads if I pay you 4.99 every three months. Are you people STUPID! It’s a no brainer game, there is no thinking involved, that’s why I liked it, just to vegetate. Wow, what a load of dodo. As for me the app is gone.
Wordscape ad keeps closing out my game
by Happy utmost on 2019/05/16 20:53
This has happened before with other ads on this app. It is so frustrating to play a game, almost get to the end and you can't finish it! I have been playing this loved game for 6-7 years probably daily. Please fix this forever!
Fun game, way to share across devices?
by User12460 on 2019/05/16 14:53
I play this game on my ipad. I recently downloaded it to my Android phone as well. I don’t see any way to share my profile (e.g. level, setting preferences) across devices.

Ads in the middle of a hand?
by Doefyre on 2019/05/15 12:13
It’s bad enough when a game has ads at the end of each hand but in the middle of a hand is really annoying. I have several mobility ware games and all but one do this.

It’s way better than all the other Solitaires thank you for making a game like this
Advertisements Too Long
by San Antonio Player on 2019/05/10 02:06
The developers have started putting in 30 second and longer advertisements without the ability to skip through them. I suggest finding an alternative version.

by aaacccjjj on 2019/05/09 18:24
This game has been ruined for me by all the unsolicited games that pop up every time I attempt to play a game. It is impossible to play without dealing with all these unwanted items. By the time I have the spider board up my pleasure in playing is gone. What happened to my original game without all the added interference?

Ads ruin the game
by squirrelhouse on 2019/05/09 14:34
The ads are not only intrusive, but they create stress. You have to wait 10 to 30 seconds to return to the game. For most ads, you have to say ‘no’ TWICE before you can return to the game. I just want to relax!

Outrageous advertising
by buedypion on 2019/05/09 11:29
To start a game, you most often are forced to watch a 30 second or longer advertisement and now while you’re playing the game you’re interrupted multiple times forced to view multiple advertisements. Way over the top, time to look for a new platform for this game. It’s not a game site, it’s a forced advertising site.
Ads in the middle of game
by ChrisStockwell on 2019/05/09 04:43
I’m fine with viewing ads between games in exchange for playing a free game, but when the ads interrupt the game itself, that’s just not ok. It messes with my train of thought. Put the ads between games and I’ll give 4 stars- give me ads that I only need to X out once and I’ll give it 5 stars (why do I need to X out of the same ad twice? No means no).

I can handle the annoyance of ads, but not ads with no exit button. Twice this app has locked up with an ad that leaves you no option but to delete the app.

Love the challenge
by Doug Napoleone on 2019/05/07 10:58
I’ve been playing Spider for about three years every day. I love the challenge of seeing how many moves it takes and how long my game is. Unfortunately the new update seems to of taken away those two features. I hope you bring it back.

This app is very good. It’s simple and easy to use, and it has a nice look. I do have one problem with it, which is that when it’s flipped into landscape mode, sometimes when I try to pull down a stack, it pulls down the notification center, and I’ve found this to be unavoidable.

Memory Challenge
by Spanish Speakin' Wannabe on 2019/04/30 23:15
I believe Spider challenges my memory when trying to remember what may be hiding under a previously moved card. This is very fast paced and interesting.

Love this game
by Premieangel on 2019/04/29 18:25
I really enjoy this app. I love playing the daily challenges and random shuffles. I’m not competing with anyone but myself. It’s a great distraction, relaxation and stress tool. I usually begin my day by playing the daily challenge on either my phone or tablet. Then I’ll play it at some point on the other device. I rated the game a 4-star, because I have had some issues with it stopping, closing out of the game and restarting after installing Apple’s 12.2 software. Frequently it will be at the beginning of the game after restarting. It makes playing the game frustrating, especially if you don’t want to start over. I’ve found it doesn’t count that against you ref 1st play! Hopefully that will be addressed soon!

I loved this game, but now it has loud video ads. I like to listen to YouTube videos while I play. It shuts the videos off. If you are in bed with someone sleeping, or in a doctors waiting room, it’s very disturbing. I’ll try another brand or stop using games if they insist on loud video ads.
Excessive advertising.
by Dougs-iTunes on 2019/04/29 01:04
I am deleting Spider Solitare for forcing an advertisement after every game.

Addictive!!! Excellent for this senior when she can't sleep at 2am, keeps the brain working, challenging for the eyes and great for "self competition"!!! March 28, 2019, what is wrong? Can't get in and when you do it's slow, it sticks, it freezes and it disappears! Please fix whatever bug is contaminating the game! March 30, 2019, Boring. Dissappears, slooowww. Readying to leave if it's not fixed. Understand that candy crush is quite enjoyable. April 25, 2019. Sticks, dissappears no longer enjoyable. If it doesn't get better in the next day, bye bye.

Buggy but generally fun
by chsufivkak on 2019/02/12 19:12
I sometimes get stuck on the transition from “Mobility Ware” to the game, and it just sits there for maybe a flat 20 seconds. Then, when you load up a game, you have to wait another 20 seconds before you can start moving cards around. Then, if you go to another app, or really you don’t even have to go to another app. If you double press the home button, then tap back on Spider Solitaire, it will still make you wait about 20 seconds before it lets you do anything DESPITE you maybe only being off the game for less than a single second. It’s annoying when you leave for a split second to reply to someone, then come back to the solitaire app, have to wait before you can do anything and by the time you can, your friend has already texted you back. Sometimes, if you’re gone from the app for more than a couple seconds, then the whole app restarts and you have to wait through the whole loading process again and everything. However, I haven’t found another solitaire format that I like more and this is the only game I found that works in portrait mode. Just get rid of the bugs!!! If other apps can be immediately responsive after returning to the app after a short second, then so can some simple card game.
I Love this Card Game!
by neeseybug on 2017/10/09 15:35
I play Spider every single day. It calms my nerves, erases anxiety and keeps my mind active. The Best feature is the daily challenge. I don't come close to the low scores so I don't have to compete! I love that. I just go at my own pace, I sometimes arrow back all the way to the beginning and start again and I always win! As long as I don't completely close the game and get a whole new hand, I just keep playing the hand I started with until I win that hand. I try to get crowns for completing the hand every day and it usually takes me less than 15 minutes. After I do the daily challenge, I usually choose to continue to play selecting "play a winning hand." Some of them are difficult and take me a long time but I know it IS winnable so I work on it until I win. I don't Have to play a hand that I don't know if it's even possible to win! I hate having to give up and lose at any game. I love the Winning Hand! Great graphics after you win too. It's really fun to put my own personal photos as my table background too! That's a really cool feature! I never get tired of what I'm looking at because I can easily change my background And the backs of the cards. This game is Great!
Great look, bad ads, airplane mode almost unplayable

I understand the need for ads, and a popup between hands showing other games Mobility makes is FINE. I’d even be willing to check one out if it looked neat. Then the animated ads with sound started, and you HAVE to watch for a period of time before an X would appear to close them. This went even further, as ads would randomly put the X in different corners so you never know where to look, and even then sometimes the X would either not work at all, or clicking it would open the app store to the game. This is RIDICULOUS waiting 30+ seconds on ads you cannot close between every single hand. I play games like this to relax, and this BS is far from relaxing. A tip to help was put your phone/tablet in airplane mode actually brought those types of ads to a halt with only single-frame ads you can just close. Yay until a few months back, when this suddenly started causing problems with a hand being dealt. There’s LONG pause before anything at all happens, then a single-frame ad pops up where clicking the X greys it out, and another LONG pause before it closes. I’ve spent upwards of five minutes dealing with this trying to play ONE frickin hand. I’m done. I will never download another Mobility game.
Love it, still the best solitaire!
by Snowy Home on 2018/10/18 07:25
For the first time I had trouble with the game. It hard crashed my iPad and the end result was that I had to reinstall. I lost two years of gold trophies. 😟 still love the game but I'm having difficulty with the upgraded game and find some changes irritating. For one thing, the highlighted and darkened cards in some of the game styles. I finally got it to more like the old version so I can enjoy it. Still annoyed that I lost all that history, but still playing and it's still the best. Casual, no pressure! I enjoy the game every time I play,even keeping up with the weekly challenges👌. I have had very few games which I enjoyed without getting annoyed and it's a real pleasure to have found this one. I can' spend cash in games but with this one I don' have to spend. The ads are inserted with little intrusion and my sessions leave me satisfied with the interlude. Thank you to the developers for a good looking, challenging yet fun game!
Bad update
by Saswin11 on 2018/12/16 15:27
I have loved this game, I’m a paying customer, but I’m disappointed with the current update. Now the columns no longer shrink up when you tap a very long column; this makes it harder to work with the bottoms of the columns. I got into a situation yesterday where I was trying to move an entire column near the center of the screen. Each time I tried to grab the column, the iPhone pulled down its short “swipe down” screen, interfering with the game. I was never able to move that column, I had to give up on it. I never had that problem with the game prior to this update. Finally, the new design for the menu at the bottom of the screen takes up more space than it used to, which is not a good thing. I want to go back to the older version. I have always rated this game as five stars; now it drops to three stars. I hate “upgrades” that crow about the improvements but actually worsen the game. New themes are uninteresting if they come along with changes that worsen what used to be the best Spider in the App Store. Sarah
Spider solitaire
by April1956 on 2017/08/08 20:03
I started with cards and played solitaire and then discovered it on my phone. Spider solitaire was a natural progression. This is just a nice way to wake myself up in the am. I also read a book for pleasure and a bible and a informational book with my bible. I have around 8 different games on my phone. I don't do them every day except daily challenge solitaire, spider, and some other ones. The games take the place of commercials also. These things take the place of constant tv for me. They go with me to appointments also. The ads don't bother me because the game is free and you can get rid of them soon. You can also turn your wifi off in settings if they do mess with your game. That usually doesn't happen but you do have that option if you happen to get a bad game. No wifi...no ads... Id be miserable without my games or books to keep me company
I’ve always enjoyed playing spider solitaire until today
by 65smiley on 2019/02/01 07:18
I would definitely give this fun game 5 stars until today.I’ve always loved playing spider solitaire with all the colorful backgrounds and fun card faces but today I wasn’t happy with the added “burst of color that spews out of the card when you line it up to match the same color in the card sequence” It’s very annoying to see it displayed on the screen each time you move the card or multiple cards to the matching color row of cards. I don’t know if I described it accurately but hopefully the developers will delete it from the game. This is only my opinion and I’m sure there are many players who might like the “burst of color that are red hearts and diamonds and black spades and clubs”. But, to me it’s an unnecessary addition to the game. I’ve recommended this game to my friends and family. It’s a fantastic game that challenges your cognitive thinking process. I apologize for being picky but the new addition really bothered me.
Good game, intrusive ads
by writergirl_xx on 2017/12/15 13:55
I like the daily challenges. It's relaxing to play a game in the morning while waiting for my train. It's a free app, so I expected some ads, but when I originally downloaded the app, I was pleasantly surprised by how few there were. There was one every other hand (or more often, if it takes you a little longer to finish a game). But now they're everywhere. You can't necessarily exit out of them after a few seconds. Some are multi-part, so if you exit out of one, there's a second page and you have to wait to exit out of that one too. The makers have even added one to a menu option, so if you click for a new game, the first option isn't deal a new hand but download whatever new game. This wouldn't be so annoying if there wasn't also a menu for games they also want you to download. I get that it's a free game, but calm down on the ads.
Horrible Adds
by Crib~<>,s on 2018/02/23 19:09
I like the game but the adds are horrible. I understand that a free app needs to have adds to make money. The problem is that a lot of the adds are designed poorly. For example, I have an iPad Pro and use the special stylus. Some of the adds can be deleted clicking on the X with my stylus, others required me to use my finger. It’s really irritating because often there are 2 adds in a row and the second one won’t respond to the stylus even though the X dims when you flick on it. The second type of irritating adds changes my screen from landscape to portrait. I then have to turn my iPad to find out where the X is and then after deleting the add I have to turn my iPad up side down in order to get it to go back to the landscape mode. I guess the advertisers think they will get my attention by doing these things and they are right. The problem is that because of their irritating techniques I would never buy there products.
Greed ruined the game. ADVERTISERS AVOID
by AvidHunter1 on 2019/01/24 12:02
I previously wrote the review below, and am now updating my review. While the game owners have ceased running 30-second ads that are geographically irrelevant, their new deception tactic is extremely disturbing. They now run advertisements that present an “X” to close the advertisement, but rather than closing the ad, the click opens the App Store to enable the download of another app. This is the definition of bait and switch. When you present a common command and knowingly switch the meaning of the command, you have committed your business to be one built on deception, and there is no limit to your immorality. ADVERTISERS SHOULD AVOID DOING BUSINESS WITH THIS DEVELOPER. This game was ok to good until the rights owner thought it would be cute to have multiple 30-second ads that cannot be escaped and aren’t even geographically related to the company paying for the ads. If your company pays for ad placement with this company, I urge you to stop. The company does no targeted analysis for who is targeted. You are wasting your advertising budget with this company.
Been loving it for years
by Starsphynx on 2018/12/13 02:03
I’ve been playing this game for years, ever since I got my first IPhone. It must fit my personality. I like that I can replay the same deal or back up and replay moves. I find this very satisfying, because we don’t get many opportunities for do-overs in life. And it allows me to stubbornly refuse to give up, until I’ve played the deal so many times that I either win, or am satisfied that there is no possible way to win it. It tends to be my go to game when I need to kill a few minutes, like waiting in the doctors office. It absorbs my attention and makes time run fast, but I can look up from it when I need to, without losing the game. I do r know what people are talking about regarding ads. I don’t see any ads. Maybe I paid for an upgrade way back when.
Already did a review, but okay...
by MysticTwilight92677 on 2017/11/08 06:51
When I last wrote a review my rating was actually better than this. So, I hold no hopes that this review will be posted, either (perhaps explaining why they have such a high rating). Since my last review the ads have gotten worse. My last review explained that I can handle an ad between each an every game, but when it interrupts game play it's enough to make me not want to play this version of Solitaire. Now the ads make noises and if I'm listening to something else it will stop what I'm listening to and it may or may not start it up again after the ad. While I willing to deal with it for the love of this particular version of Spider, today tipped severely in the other direction this evening when I went to go finish a game I started this morning and the game was gone. I assume I took a loss for it. I know in the grand scheme of life it isn't a big deal, but I have a choice and I chose to play another version. Hope you fix it, but it's too late for me.
Addicting
by genlock on 2018/06/10 03:06
I love this game! This is the only game you will ever want to play. Customize the board and cards. Pick how many suits. Choose to look at hints or not. Replay losing games if you want. Undo moves if they don't work out. So many options. And see how you compare to other players (although that sometimes makes me wonder why I don't do as well but I don't really care). Hate the ads and just when you think you've clicked out of it a second one immediately appears. The X doesn't appear quickly enough so you are forced to stare at the screen until it does. Would like more clarification about scoring points, tricks to win, (the Show me how to win feature goes too fast) and more stats for more playing.
Totally Addicted!
by Honest Gab on 2018/04/24 18:28
I love playing “ Spider” at night before I go to sleep. I gets my mind of things that would normally keep me awake. I love this game and I can’t say enough, I’m totally addicted! I love trying to challenge myself to solve the games more quickly and smoothly. It’s a games that doesn’t bog you down watching long advertisements and wow, I mean I keep telling myself “just one more hand and I’ll stop ..” ya right! I have lots of other games to play but just keep coming back to this one. Ohh, best of all - I’ve been playing this game for FREE! You can purchase different options I guess and at this point I probably will. I’ve been deleting some of my other games to keep from bogging my phone up too much. Get this APP, you won’t be sorry!!!
Game great but ads kill the enthusiasm
by Adobemom on 2018/05/10 22:05
the ads are out of control, beyond annoying & there should be an option to block them- they take an enormous amount of the pleasure from playing the actual games- the modulated analogy could easily be that it is like packing a nice gift for someone but using rotten hard boiled eggs as packing material. They do not encourage me to buy the other games, they just detract from enjoyment of the game i choose- big time. Maybe I should just rip them each apart in a review in every social media resource...& ask others to do the same. Maybe then this ceaseless poor judgement on the part of those who control the ceaseless ads will END! Those making these decisions need an intensive education in what actually motivates the public to buy & what are the absolute "do not use" techniques - clearly they are clueless
Good game
by Techie 1111 on 2018/11/25 22:14
The new version needs a few bug fixes for one it is hard to always see the suit of cards that are in the stacks without moving cards to look number to sometimes you’re in the middle of a game and it’s going to deal another card and the screen just goes blank, so you lose the game although sometimes you can come back in and it’s there. Sometimes the game seems to slow down to a crawl and you can slowly watch the movement of cards I don’t know if this has been corrected but I did press on one card and not get that card to get something else happening it’s seem to have nothing to do with what I was touching. It’s still a good game much faster dealing then summer games easier regards to another games like it.
Have this, love it, really can be a challenge!
by agypsyfoot2 on 2017/06/16 04:26
I play this daily, sometimes to work out the previous days challenge I could not solve at that time. Lately it seem to have bugs, out intended. I left 2 unsolved hands from May, which I intended to work on this month so as to complete the whole Daily Challenges for .May, but it tells me I am a new player, thus have no last month, strange because I have been playing for months and take pride in solving the challenges. So, you I'll enjoy thus game if you are the type who hangs in there, but be prepared for problems with the game. Still love the game, but never regained the last month. Beware, this game can become a passion to Solve!
Complaint (resolved)
by The people's turn on 2018/06/13 23:21
May 3rd, 2018. Couldn’t finished the daily puzzle. Next day, tried that puzzle again And failed. Revisited that same puzzle again and couldn’t do it. Like a week ago, I tried again, following EXACTLY what the hints told me to do, and ONLY what the hints told me to do. Tried it again recently. Did what the hints told me to do. STILL couldn’t solve it. What I’m saying is, May 3rd is impossible to beat, so I can’t get a gold trophy for that entire month. And I REALLY wanna get a gold trophy for May, because I don’t have ANY gold trophy’s at all. This is bad, but I really love the game! It’s so fun and addictive! Edit: I tried it again, and I completed it. So... yeah forget what this review said. 5 stars!
Annoying adds that reset your game
by mmcmsp on 2018/07/12 07:01
Love this BUT it has a huge drawback. Most of adds take us to the app store even when clicking on close and, when we get out the app store, it's like you just open the app, no game is there! This is so annoying. Why not offer a paid/premium version instead of making us watching ads? Yes I totally understand you need to make money but why not make money actually selling the app and offering a good development keeping your game in the screen. Also when ads are in landscape mode, the game comes back in landscape and doesnt come back to portrait... You have to leave the app to fix it and the app comes back without anything on... even when portrait mode is locked on both phone and app settings. Love the game. Hate the app. Today was a record of resets and I'm really upset, looking for another solitaire spider, paid, with zero ads, to dive in.
Love this game
by Premieangel on 2019/04/29 18:25
I really enjoy this app. I love playing the daily challenges and random shuffles. I’m not competing with anyone but myself. It’s a great distraction, relaxation and stress tool. I usually begin my day by playing the daily challenge on either my phone or tablet. Then I’ll play it at some point on the other device. I rated the game a 4-star, because I have had some issues with it stopping, closing out of the game and restarting after installing Apple’s 12.2 software. Frequently it will be at the beginning of the game after restarting. It makes playing the game frustrating, especially if you don’t want to start over. I’ve found it doesn’t count that against you ref 1st play! Hopefully that will be addressed soon!
Spider Solitaire rules!
by Aragon4004 on 2017/09/19 00:19
I really have become quite addicted to spider solitaire especially is this version. I travel often for business and it relieves the boredom on a plane, or waiting from in the airports. It's one of my favorite games. This version is especially enjoyable because it allows me to just tap the cards for a move instead of always having to drag and drop. I'm really glad I discovered this version and I highly recommend it. You can set difficulty levels and deals. Glad I picked it up!! I do find the pop up ads annoying and wish there was a way it would allow me to avoid them. Other than that it's great.
Chrislynch1488
by Cl1488 on 2017/07/24 11:14
I enjoy playing this game. Sometimes I play late into the night and others early in the morning before the kids get up either way it is a relaxing way to pass time. I noticed that where there used to be only 1 ad before each game it has now doubled to 2 ads. Not a big deal to me as it only takes a few seconds to close them. I usually play with the volume off because my wife is asleep next to me while I'm playing so the ad volume isn't an issue as others have mentioned. Lastly, I Have never had a game interrupted by an advertisement. If I had been interrupted by an ad I would be very aggravated just like the other commenters/reviewers. All in all a very fun game.
The fatal flaw with mid-game ads
by Kay_Rock on 2018/09/05 17:15
I don’t mind ads in between games as a reasonable method of revenue generation. However, ads are notoriously buggy. Imagine you’re in the middle of a particularly challenging daily challenge, and you’re down to that final deal and you know you’re going to finally win after a long time of puzzling it out. You hit that last pile of cards all excited, only to have an ad fail to load. Blank screen. No X, no way out. You wait several minutes hoping it will resolve itself, but no such luck. Your only choice is to force quit the game. And of course all of your progress is lost. Start over or give up. This is just ridiculous. Devs, if you cannot guarantee that your ads will load properly and then close, you have no business putting them in the middle of a game.
Live the game, can't turn the sound off the ads
by Stasha Period on 2017/09/05 03:22
I've been playing this for way too long way too often. I love it. I don't mind the ads, it's fine I get it. Make your money. But with the last update I can't turn the sound off! Even with my phone on silent and the game on silent. I play at night. Helps me shut my brain off but the volume is SO loud. I can't play any more. It's stressing me out. I like the sound of the cards flipping. I like that I can make the background a red, easier on the eyes for evening screens. I like the daily challenges. But this sound on the ads thing... I'm downloading another app now. I'll try back after the next update. I hope they remove it.
Mrslgl
by Grannys28.13 on 2017/09/24 17:37
I am among those who love this game but get frustrated with all the ads. I very seldom have a game that isn't interrupted by at least two ads. This hasn't stopped me from playing but I sure wish I didn't have to put up with the ads. I usually play on my iPad for the convenience of the larger screen and it's a fairly old model and that may be why I get booted out of a game now and then when trying to get rid of an ad. I have spider solitaire on my phone too but it doesn't have the daily challenge which I really enjoy. It is faster to get out of the ads on my phone however. Love the game but not the ads!!!!
Ads in Middle of Game are ANNOYING
by BrucesDaddy on 2019/02/17 15:46
I downloaded this developer’s version of Spider Solitaire because Spider is my favorite solitaire game, and I wanted to check this one out. I like the daily challenge, but have grown to DESPISE the ads, that frequently interrupt the actual game. I don’t mind ads, and I realize the developer needs the revenue, but I will be concentrating on the moves I want to make, when suddenly some woman’s finger is popping blocks on some other game, or a toilet is overflowing, or angry birds are being wiped out, or Publishers Clearinghouse wants to give me a million dollars. These interruptions cause me to completely lose my train of thought. I will go back to another developer’s version, that displays a simple ad message at the top of the screen (and has no ads at all when not on Wifi).
Great app great game but ads lock up often
by Bf121 on 2018/07/24 02:52
I got a message to let you know which adds are locking up. Several do but the worst is fishDom and the one where you click on boxes and they blow up the problem is they freeze and don't give an X to get rid of the ad. This is a great app with a fun card game but it is very aggravating when the ads don't have a way to get back to the game or if they lock up and you have to shut the game/app completely down and reload to continue playing. I know you can fix this because it doesn't happen every time just way too often.
The Right Stuff
by Sulawesi on 2018/01/31 14:41
I win about 20% of the time, which is about the right success rate to not get bored with winning too often nor frustrated because it's too hard. I like games where you have to think ahead 2-3 moves and this one is perfect for that. Update: In the “Show me how to win” tutorial, watch closely. When there is one stack left to deal, towards the end of the demonstration, it deals out the remaining stack. There are two open lines when it does this. This is not supposed to be allowed. You can’t deal out a stack unless all of the lines are occupied with cards.
Update detracts and downgrades
by SweetnSexyLips on 2018/11/20 22:45
I hate this update!!! The card face backgrounds have fully changed, I want the option of the old Card Face Background back... Much easier to see on the phone with the cards being either all black or all red.. and the positioning of the cards is not great either...I had family and friends on that background and now the layout and positioning of the card layout makes it intrusive and I can't get it the way it was... This is an example of how a Newer update is not always better, I don't care how much you paid your tech designer for something new, the older version was much easier to see and customize... This version on November 2018 is a downgrade... And I have played this everyday for years... I'm now looking at other card games because of this..
Annoying
by Oberdegober on 2017/12/02 17:23
Annoying ads. Break thru voices on silent. Hidden X's. Some ads can't be stopped. More annoying then it is worth. Think I will just stop. A few months later. Seems to have improved. Fewer break through voices on silent. Still some X's hidden in background. Repetitive ads that often can't be dismissed. Later. Gotten better. Fewer long ads. Not as annoying. Seemed to have improved after I joined Facebook. New review. Faster, fewer hidden X's but new adds are questionable and some appear to be downright scams i.e. Rolex Daytona's for less than $200; claims of health violations at shopping malls without naming specific restaurants-one mall has 20 high end establishments! What is going on?
Get rid of the ads!
by Puzzler61 on 2017/10/02 23:01
I enjoy this app/game very much. But I can only give it 3 stars because of the excessive ads which pop up every time you go to deal another set of cards. These ads are a great pain, and some won't go away when you click the x to make it go away and you have to shut down the app and then return to the app. Then another thing which is annoying is that I upgraded my phone and when the app was transferred to my new phone I lost all of my previous games, which was about a years worth of successfully completed games.
New “levels” with really stupid names are annoying
by Darcy2222 on 2019/02/08 15:57
I’ve been playing this game for more than three years and find it challenging and relaxing. The addition of more ads and longer ads over the years has been annoying. But with their new “fix”, they’ve taken the game to super annoying! The addition of levels with stupid names and points, which mean nothing and do nothing, is just ridiculous! I guess some idiot at the company had to come up with a new idea for the game to justify their salary. So they came up with this. Please come up with a way to make levels and points an option. Or better yet get rid of it entirely. It was not an improvement!!!
Annoying af
by STACKS LOVER on 2018/04/21 13:09
The game itself is really good... there are a couple things that are VERY annoying. For one when you are playing and you switch over to another app then get back into this one, it shows the mobilityware thing and it stays there for a long time. Another thing is when you win then close the game and come back to play later and you click the play button an add pops up no matter how many times you try to get rid of it and you can’t play the dang game. I know games have to have some ads but dear lord make it where we can at least get out of it. Then sometimes when you actually get past the ad it still won’t load the cards.
Classic Spider Game
by Card Fan! on 2018/03/03 14:43
I play this game every day. Each game provides the option to create your own unique game experience especially for you. It is a great addicting classic spider solitaire game that is both relaxing and fun to play each and every time The reason i gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the ads. Each game has 2 ads that are either at the beginning or middle of the game. Although the player can exit off the ads, they do interrupt the excitement of the game. **Please place the ads at the END of the game before game 2 starts instead of in the beginning or middle of the first solitaire game.**
Fun way to pass time waiting or during commercials!!!
by Georgia Bugdog on 2017/11/01 18:12
I hate waiting... Doctors offices, Dentist visits, long lines at Walmart, at restaurants, on hold on the phone, during commercials while watching my favorite TV programs..... This game is my favorite time pass during these moments that would otherwise strain my sanity!!! By the time I enjoy a round or two, time has passed and I'm in a better mood to move on with my task at hand. Only thing I don't like is the forced ads and having to wait to exit an ad. Otherwise I have no complaints and live this game of Spider!!!
Spider
by Kidlitenin on 2018/12/26 10:07
Since I've loaded this app not a day has gone by that I haven't played it for a while. Addictive and enjoyable. If I could have only one game this would be it. I have a string of Golden Trophies on my calendar that goes 3 years solid and the month before that has 29 out of 30 simply because I didn’t understand the game yet. I realize that this is on the easiest level but I was in a vehicle wreck and received brain damage. I believe this has helped me and I look forward to it daily. Usually have daily puzzle solved by bout 3am so I don’t forget it.
Latest update not an upgrade
by thisisarandomnickname8675309 on 2019/02/01 23:04
This was a 5 star game until the latest update. I’ve been playing for years and this is the first update that I think is a major step back. It is no longer possible to tap on cards quickly. There is a delay after moving a card. I have to wait wait wait. The daily challenges are retained for 1 month only? Really? You cannot keep a year of history? Store it locally. Generally too many fancy, kitchy, neato things that those of us play every day don’t want or need. Those things just get in the way. I won’t complain about the ads in a great free game... but please think about us, the “power users.”
Challenging but lots of fun!
by Lorsm on 2017/12/21 13:31
The first thing I do in the morning is play this game. It’s challenging, especially when it looks as though there are no possible moves, the revealed cards are a jumble and you groan that you may have to start over. But often perseverance and careful observation win the day. I like to use logic to think my way through such instances: now if I move that Ace it frees up the 3 which I can then move to the 2…but wait, moving the Jack to free the 8 would be better…. I’ve got my friend hooked on the game also. Love the jeweled crowns!
Ads, Maybe-but what did you expect for Free?
by Science Rocks 10! on 2017/06/18 00:15
Several people mention the ads but they are very easy to dismiss and a mute button appears that resets as soon as the ad is dismissed. Ads last a maximum of 3-4 seconds before you can dismiss them and the spider game is very easy to use. I like it better than any other spider app I have tried. Honestly, I don't know what people expect for a free app. And they don't put you on any lists or try to sell you anything else other than the quick ads that I pay no attention to!
Big bite
by Rain, go away on 2019/03/26 18:02
This game is addictive. Once I start playing, i forget what time it is or how early I have to get up in the morning. I can feel smart one second and stupid the next when the prompts show me what I was too dull to see myself. Lots of fun and good brain exercise. My single frustration is the constant interruptions of ads and offers to download other free apps. I could tolerate a few of these as I understand the need for ads. But it's way too frequent and the audio is so loud and raucous with some of them it's just alarming.
Daily challenge
by MTBrider70 on 2017/11/23 03:52
I try to play the Daily Challenge each morning after breakfast. I know that it’s possible to win each hand. My goal is two-fold: try to win the first hand (usually do); and try to complete all jeweled crowns each month. I’ve only managed one month so far! Invariably I miss a day somewhere. I wish that there was an additional “cup” for anyone completing a month’s jeweled crowns: a platinum cup. And getting your name on a special list! I’ll never be the fastest or the fewest moves... but a Platinum Cup would be an achievement!!! Thanks!
Backgrounds and Card Backs
by Bev.. on 2018/06/28 03:49
I’m so tired of what is offered. I don’t want childish or Holiday themes. More solid colors (ex: shades of yellow, brown, tan, different blues, greens, muted red) and different patterned card backs (like wallpaper for adults) would be appreciated. I don’t want a photo. I have been fully aware of that option all along. I don’t want to have to find posters or whatever of colors to photograph for your game. Your marketers should use a group to find how people respond to your choices. The card backs and background choices are really very bad and “Holiday” choices are the worst. Pictures are a distraction.
Look Forward to the Challenge
by Give Me the Last Version Back on 2018/12/10 16:05
I’ve had this app on my iPad for years and love the daily challenge. I always get it solved —I’m not too speedy and sometimes it takes a few tries. Just a few days ago I installed it on my new iPhone and I can’t figure out what’s going on. I just can’t lose! One try, every time better than the last, very few moves compared to my usual. Has the game been dumbed down? Is there a more difficult option? It’s not all that much to know I’m going to win without even thinking about it! Still love it on my iPad though.

This is one of my favorite apps and one I play every single day. The Daily Challenge is fun and I like the many options for play that are available. There is only thing I would change. I’m willing to pay a small fee for no ads, but that’s not a choice. The ads are annoying and some are very long for an app ad, but they usually only appear at the beginning of a game. Other than that, Spider Solitaire is wonderfully designed and much fun to play. Very challenging sometimes, too!
Buggy

Overall, this is a great app. I really enjoy playing it. I especially like the Daily Challenge. I play it everyday so I can get a crown with jewels. Unfortunately, my efforts disappear. I will play, get the crown with jewels, only for that to disappear the next day. I replay the day before’s game and I get a crown without the jewels. I realize it’s rather petty of me to bring this up, but I am competitive and I’d love to have a month of crowns with jewels. That isn’t possible until this bug is fixed. It doesn’t happen everyday. Maybe it happens 5 or 6 times a month.
Love the game, hate the adds!

The game is great. There are a lot of options you have to tailor it to your own preferences. I play it when I want to kill time, usually waiting for an appointment. When I first downloaded the game a few years ago, the ads were pretty normal and could be skipped. Now they have ads for these awful games that I would never play and they hide the skip button hoping I will accidentally hit the play button. So obnoxious! I still like the game, but the ads are annoying and make me less likely to want to play
New version issues
by Serafinamia on 2018/12/02 16:22
I have played this game fairly extensively for several years and enjoyed it. However, the new version that recently downloaded itself seems to have some major problems: specifically, causing my phone to overheat and drain the battery. Also, when this issue starts, the cards become jerky as they move, all indicating bugs in the program. Hope you can fix this, as otherwise I can’t continue to play.
Thanks Dad!!

I am nearing the anniversary of my first year of playing Spider Solitaire and I enjoy it greatly. After watching my Dad play & seeing how much he liked it I knew I had to give it a try. I am disabled & there are days it is a challenge to get up & move, so it's nice to have something that helps to take my mind off the pain. I especially enjoy playing the daily challenges. Spider adds are usually much shorter & also fewer than many others. I thank Mobility Ware for offering Spider Solitaire for free.
Ads too much
by Canarybbb on 2019/01/08 11:35
I like the game itself however, here I am playing to try to beat my last time and an advertisement pops up. There’s not much chance my time will improve with an ad in the middle of the game. In between each and every game there is at least one ad. Just because you play the same ads over and over and over, it does not incline me to get what you are trying to brainwash me with. Also when I do get to the x I often have to hit it several times before it moves on. Thank you for listening.
