Too many ads
Fun game but ads are not functioning
by QueenHarvest16 on 2020/11/26 19:33
The game functions smoothly and is fun to play. The ads between games are not too bad, except for one recent issue. About one out of every three ads never shows an X to get out. I have to close the app and reopen to get into another game.
Too many reviews of other games
by bikeriderb on 2020/11/26 04:33
I don’t like the review of other games in the middle of this game

Love the game. Hate the new ads
by Frustrated in Medina on 2020/11/22 16:13
Love this game, but the new ads are very annoying. At times it takes up to 20 tries to get out of the ad and back to the game. It gets to the point where I have to reboot my iPad just to get rid of them. I understand you have to use the ads, but when I hit the X to exit and go back to the game, that means I’m not interested in what you are selling and don’t expect to reboot to get rid of.
Easy to use.
by newiphone12 on 2020/11/21 23:38
The FreeCell game is easy to use, and well designed.
Loved it for years

I have been playing daily for so many years. At night to relax in bed, waiting for appts. And I love it because all games are winnable, like Pyramid. Brain exercise
Bugs - ?
by Nekharpa on 2020/11/20 21:20
I have played this particular game for years, really enjoying the game and this particular design considerably. Perhaps your phone won’t have the issues I will describe below. If not, it’s a terrific game. I have tired of many other games, including various ones that are like Candy Crush, story games, Sim-type games, and Sudoku. But I never tire of this Free Cell. This past year it started freezing on me. I reinstalled and enjoyed a number of games, but it acted up again. I have uninstalled and reinstalled many times (taking it totally off of my phone, through settings) after shutting down and restarting my phone a number of times (it usually plays a handful of games before causing problems again). I’m playing on iPhone 7Plus with IOS 12.4.1 Before I continue I will say that the folks who own this game have been responsive to my past concerns. If I could remember how to contact them directly, I would. Now, to the issue. The problem is that after the first few (100?) games (this occurs after a similar # of games each time), it freezes completely when a game ends, or it freezes until I close and open it once or twice, presenting the X in upper right corner as happens during an Ad. Then, though a new layout appears, the cards “float,” never aligning properly. Today I never could restart the game, even after shutting off my phone. While I’m presenting issues, there are many ads that are truly annoying. One is Word Play (I think), the game that erroneously claims it is important for preventing memory loss, and erroneously claims to determine IQ by how well you play the game. It takes forever to get this ad off the phone. I usually quit the game instead. But the worst ad has ants bloodily eating a rodent. It is disgusting. I always quit the game when I see this ad.

Too much advertising and freezing up
by eloi rules on 2020/11/10 02:52
I like the look and action of this game better than most of the others, the the ads get aggressive and after a while the whole thing freezes. Try other free cell games.
Do you love to watch ads?
by GB BikeDude on 2020/11/09 07:23
If you like watching ads, get this game. They make you stare at the ad for a while before a “Skip ad” button appears. Press that button and they show more of the ad. Guess they don’t know what “Skip ad” means. If you want play FreeCell, choose another game.
Ads
by Lib25geo on 2020/11/09 02:35
Today I got an ad titled “see her panties slide off”. You need to be much much better about who you sell ads to. This is entirely inappropriate!! Another obnoxious add. This one for a toy called Boxes with an upside down turtle helplessly waving its legs around.. what kind of reality is that? Hey there.. nov 8 2020 and watching gambling apps on my FreeCell app. Can you please fix this?
Let me turn off sounds
by MoreBetterCookies on 2020/11/08 17:25
I have played for years, often while my girlfriend sleeps. Recently, they decided that it’s a great idea, even though I have all sounds turned OFF, that they should play the sounds of slot machines. I am not allowed to decide if I don’t want noise. So, the company is called Brainium, seems like they could know, sometimes we play at work, when we should be sleeping, when we want, but don’t want noise. I sent an email, but nothing. I play less now, but may have to quit. Unhappy!!!!!

The Game Center request is SO annoying

Since the newest update on my iPad, every time I open the app I get a request to participate in Game Center. I don’t want to and I hate being asked repeatedly. Stop it!!!
Old favorite but
by Evelyndoeshair on 2020/11/02 02:54
Old favorite but the ads are at times longer than the game. Some ads run a full video that you can’t move past. Then they do the 5 second thing as well... annoying for an old game that used to come free on your PC years ago!

heartbroken
by Minecraft 749683085 on 2020/10/30 19:01
this is by far the best freecell app on the app store, but im a lil upset right now. my mom taught me how to play and had a 100% win rate. which isnt to say that she was the best freecell player, but she was very persistent. so, i do the same thing now. even if it takes me 30 minutes i would never give up on a game. i had a 1073 game win streak, when one game i tried to hit the replay button to reset the board and accidentally hit new game instead. just like that my win rate went from 100% to 99.9%. and it would stay there forever. i think that there should be a confirmation if you hit new game. or at least an option to turn that feature on. other than that, its my favorite game app, so long as i’m not clumsy!
Locks up after 2 or 3 games
by Mominlaw07 on 2020/10/30 13:03
I’ve been playing this game for years and love it. Play every day. Recently, it’s been locking each time a message pops up on the screen, and it needs to be deleted and reinstalled to play again. What happened?

Great Freecell game, really invasive ads
by Bitchen! on 2020/10/08 15:04
I’ve been playing this Freecell game for years and really like it. However...they have been gradually increasing the invasive nature of the ads the push up every tome you launch a new game. The latest one makes you keep it on the screen for 20 seconds. I’ve probably spent way too much time on this game already so will be deleting it if this doesn’t improve. I’d be willing to pay $5 to get rid of the ads....
Love it. But
by cookiebreath on 2020/10/08 14:31
Sometimes very difficult to move cards. They are rejected by the pile you want to move them to unless you tap or hold it there for a minute. Didn't use to be like this. Also, if you simply tap the card it will go to a pile automatically but that may not be the pile you intended and you still have to move it. Overall good game.
TOO MANY ADS!!!!
by Micki Stary on 2020/10/07 05:06
While this game is fun… There is no way to pay to or to get rid of the ads. They play for a very long length after each game and it is absolutely ridiculous!

by babbit8 on 2020/09/28 00:20
I love the layout of this game and it’s super fun and simple but I wish there was a way to opt out of ads. I’m getting multiple ads between games and upon opening the app. I have no issue paying the standard 99cents or even 1.99 to stop getting ads but that didn’t even appear to be an option. I’m going to switch to an app with less ads or a way to opt out.

I have been playing this FreeCell game for about a year. I quit playing the last Free cell game because the ads kept getting longer. The ads in this free cell game are doing the same. The game plays and works fine, but the ads for 35 seconds are too long.

Just missing numbered games
by Mondorange on 2020/09/08 16:55
This app is almost perfect. The FreeCell that came with Windows in the 90s had one distinct advantage: every game was numbered and you could search for a specific numbered game. For example, a friend might say they were are having a tough time with game number 3576, and you could search for and play that game yourself if you wanted. Additionally, one minor flaw is that one of the ads on the free version will play sound whether or not you have sounds muted. It is the “homescapes” ad and often features characters screaming and circus music. If you’re trying to relax while listening to music on your phone while playing, this can be quite annoying as the ad forces you to watch it for five seconds. Otherwise, this is one of the better FreeCell apps out there.
Used to love it
by jhwc1947 on 2020/09/08 12:41
The ads have gotten longer and more annoying. I am spending more time irritated by adds than it takes me to play one deal. Only time it’s been enjoyable lately was when our internet went down—ads don’t come through.

Being a privacy advocate, I was so pleased that fb, which I do not have on this apple id, was tracking my browsing activity sufficiently to serve up ads that i had visited. How very convenient.
Needs better control of moving cards
by MS0545 on 2020/09/02 23:24
Sometimes tapping a card and allowing the "game" to choose the move leads to a move that is not optimal. Can the game designers have the game query the player which move (among the possible options) is desired? Completely agree. I was on track to get to 3mm points and certain critical moves, but the game wouldn’t let me make the moves.
Hate the new ads

Obnoxious ad audio if using headphones
by jct1589 on 2020/09/01 02:12
The game is fine — what you’d expect from a FreeCell game. There are ads between every game, and the ads for other games tend to have awful, obnoxiously loud audio that plays automatically if you’re using headphones or any kind of speaker while playing.

1 Star for inappropriate ads
by DyreLogan on 2020/08/03 09:20
Every single ad was extremely inappropriate. Dealing with smutty themes, suggestive nudity, suggestive sexual themes and other suggestive adult themes. For this, even though I like this game, I deleted it. I will not have such horrible ads showing every time I start a new game. Shame on the developer for choosing these types of ads to show during their game. Deleted.

1) Scale the cards to the screen! How hard is that to understand how much that is needed? 2) Why do I have to get the cards so close to the target spot to get them to stick? I have to try 3 or 4 times to get them to where I want them. 3) Not a relaxing game at all due to the above - I’m uninstalling. 4) “I could’ve been a contenda!”

Love this game
by DeeDerDee on 2018/09/02 15:55
I lost my favorite free cell app when Apple upgraded to 10, but luckily, I found this app, and it quickly become my favorite! I rated 5 stars because for me it is a 5 Star app: Infinite replay because, let’s face it, not all games are won on the first try. Great mechanics! Just tap to make card go where it should, or just drag to place manually. I found a screen color and size to make it easy on aging eyes. The undo button! Saved me many a time. And even a hint for when the brain says ?? Yes, the ads are annoying (my old app didn’t do that!) but with my ad blocker, only a minor issue. BUT recently I’m not very happy with the performance! I either missed an update or the update is flawed!! My screen freezes or pauses, usually upon tapping “new game”, but occasionally during regular play. Super troublesome!! Always requiring closing entirely out of the app and reopening, only to find the next move is to hit the “new game” button again! Please help! I love playing this game and cannot find another app to equal this one. I play on an iPad Air 2.
You Want A Brain Stimulator That Is Fun, and Challenging? This is It.
by JParkerPhilips on 2020/01/15 14:02
I love this game, and there are more than 1,000,000 different bands to play. They start off fairly easy and over time they gradually become more challenging. This game is a great way to stimulate and challenge your mind in your spare time, and all for a very inexpensive price. I play it often, and have for several years now. The more I play, the sharper, and better I get at it. There are some hands that are easy, and some that are somewhat challenging, and there are a few that are really hard, but I eventually win them all. I will not go onto another hand until I finish, and win the hand I’m on. It’s a whole lot of fun!!
Great game for free sale addicts
by Jmarlin on 2018/03/16 00:22
This version three plays easily and so far the advertising is only a little obnoxious. As long as they as can be turned off I appreciate that they allow me to play free. This is one of my favorite games to just pick up for a few minutes. But I have been playing an updated version on my new iPad and the advertisements are much worse and some don't allow you to close them for way too long. Addendum: There is at least one ad for a game that does not have a way to close it in order to continue play. I need to completely close the game in order to get rid of the ad. I cannot continue until I do that. I don’t mind ads but I should think this kind of captured audience would be illegal. I am almost to the point of trying to find a different version of FreeCell. I have been playing this game for many years and up until recently it has been the best I have found. I have down graded my rating from five stars to one star because of this problem.

It is the “homescapes” ad and often features characters screaming and circus music. If you’re trying to relax while listening to music on your phone while playing, this can be quite annoying as the ad forces you to watch it for five seconds. Otherwise, this is one of the better FreeCell apps out there.
Good,but scoring needs improvement
by Techie 1111 on 2020/01/23 14:42
Time, Best time, moves and scores are the only thing you track. So you put the emphasis on beating your best time in general which just makes people play every game fast instead of using good strategy. Why don’t you have my “best moves” and “best scores”? Best moves would put the Emphasis on strategy. I would like to be able to compare my best moves per that game to other peoples and to my previous moves per that game. At the moment, I pay no attention to other people’s scores since I am so far away from theirs and I can’t replay to get any better. I would rather play against myself to see if I can improve moves or time in the same game. Also I use to be able to see my achievements but that doesn’t work anymore. Why?
What did you do?
by Navy fan on 2019/05/17 17:20
I’ve been playing this for years. It’s been my go-to game when I have ofd moments or want to relax. I liked playing it quietly, with my phone on vibrate and the sound turned off when I was waiting for an appointment, or even if I woke up in the muddle of the night and was having trouble getting back to sleep. Last night — three times in a row — when I wanted to start a new game, a video ad came on with blaring sound. I checked my settings. The sound in my game was off, but rhe volume hsd been cranked up om my phone. I reset my phone volume and tried again. Same thing. I was trying to uneind before bed and this had exactly the opposite effect. If you can’t fix this so that I can play quietly, without disturbing others (and don’t tell me to wear ear buds — I hate them), I’ll have to stop playing and find a new favorite game. UPDATE: It seems the developer got on this right away. The very next dsy the problem was solved. Today I received a response from the developer. I really enjoy this game and appreciate the developer’s level of customer service.
Brainium has sold out to the loudest, most obnoxious ads
by GrifKat on 2018/10/08 13:39
Freecell is a wonderful, challenging game that I've enjoyed for years, but I think Brainium has finally cured my addiction to it. The ads are so loud, they blowout my headphones. They don't offer X to close, until they have interrupted my gameplay for at least 7 seconds, and when I hit X to close, it's ignored for a few seconds more. And I will see the same ad I've closed 3 to 7 times more before it leaves me alone. Some of the ads are so grabby, that they offer Opt-out on personal data including location, but the opt-out button has misleading language and poor functionality. Please fix this!
Really great FreeCell app
by Matt Shuler on 2020/01/28 11:32
I thoroughly enjoy playing this FreeCell app (with the exception of the annoying ads - thank goodness they can be skipped after a few seconds) and I play it everyday. The only complaint that I can see is that nothing happens when I click on the “Scores” button or the “Achievements” button. The game doesn’t necessarily glitch or anything like that, it just doesn’t do anything when either of those two buttons are pressed. I like using achievements to improve my game play where possible, but I’m not even able to see what all achievements haven’t been obtained yet. But that’s not really a major complaint or anything; the rest of the app functions properly, it’s just a mild annoyance.
Brainium Free Cell
by Notyetsenile on 2019/02/28 13:39
This is both a stimulating as well as relaxing game which could not be better. I am definitely hooked! Thank you for man, many hours of fun - and of course, ever so often a surprise, when there are suddenly no more moves. The best thing is that then I can go back a move (or several) or start all over again by clicking on Replay. This game has been upgraded several times since I first started playing. When I make a move that frees up all other moves, the game saves me the trouble, goes on autopilot and finishes itself off. I am then free to tackle the next challenge - a bit spooky, but definitely neat.
Quality
by Tommy4Gun on 2018/06/25 14:52
I like your game. When it works right. You can tap on a card and supposedly it is to go up. But it doesn’t all the time and you have to tap it several times. Frustrating when you ate trying to beat a time, many times the game hangs up and nothing will move. Other times the screen goes blank. I have not yet learned how to recover from this so I just power down, rest a while and come back. Even then at times it is still broken.l As a former instructor of programmers, I wonder if your people have a clue on how to adequately test a program. I also included the concept of quality in the process. The practical definition of the term is DO IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME. It is the most cost effective approach. It seems that your people can't even spell the word if I spotted them all consonants.
Fun, but...
by Hybxxsw on 2016/11/08 00:13
Fun, free, & features -- what more could you want? It has one problem which may be their problem or maybe mine (a shortage of storage). Every once in a while it locks up and won't move a card. I have to push the button on the side of my iPad and get the "reduced" screen. I touch that screen & it comes back and is playable again. It's not a big problem & is easily solved so I really don't have anything major to complain about. Get the app! Enjoy it! Have fun! Newer versions have a lot more advertisements. I'm sticking with my outdated version. It's great!
Best Free Cell I’ve Found!!
by Rach D 86 on 2017/12/22 08:11
Love the esthetic and the simplicity. Good auto play options and simple backgrounds that are easy on the eyes (I prefer blue). Free cell is pretty much the same anywhere you play it, but it’s nice to have a clean looking interface. Brainium’s other games are fun as well. I love that the ad comes up only in between games and you can exit fairly quickly in most of them. So nice not to accidentally be clicking adds every ten seconds like in some games. The achievements feature is fun too! Adds a new challenge to a pretty straightforward game!
Challenging game!
by Bobland5 on 2016/11/14 06:07
Since a few years ago, when I started playing this game on my computer. I found that every game can be won (at least, so far). Yet it remains fun and challenging. I use the back up liberally (something nearly impossible with a deck of cards). I also appreciate that the game is saved when I have to put it aside. I can return and complete the game later. Two suggestions I would make are: show a percentage of games won and an average score, both resettable for competing against yourself or others. Thanks for the great app.
FreeCell
by bear4278 on 2020/03/28 23:54
I hate it when the program moves a card to its ace and won’t let you bring it back down. The 3 of hearts just jumped up there and I can’t use it to move the 2 of clubs which is blocking a string of plays. This is the third or four time this kind of thing has happened to me and it takes away the sense of having control of my own moves. I quit. I’ll look for another program. I know there is one out there because my mom turned me onto freecell and. I cloud move cards down.
Almost perfect
by PartitionedSpace on 2019/04/29 12:09
This is an almost perfect game of FreeCell. Sharp graphics, smooth animation and a decent auto play. The auto play on double click is a bit too aggressive moving cards to the ace piles instead of the free cells but a quick undo fixes that. It does have ads but they’re short and only show up every few games. My only real complaint is the upgrade to ad free. There isn’t one. There is a (somewhat pricey) ad free version available but you can’t upgrade to it, you’ve got to download a new app. It’s a bit of a hassle and you lose your statistics.
Addictive
by GWD4 on 2019/10/02 17:13
I like various solitaire games to pass time, and free cell is one of the best. It is very well done. One feature that is helpful when starting is automatically playing cards on the foundation. Turning this feature off might make it more challenging,although I prefer to have it on. As others have suggested, saving unsolved boards would be nice. That said, as things are, the game is excellent and addictive. I recommend it. BTW: i find the cost of the ad free version worthwhile
Do we agree my attention is a commodity?
by Braddogh on 2019/12/06 04:19
Know why cashiers, etc. (mostly) don’t rip the money or card out of your hands at checkout? Somewhere they learned to associate the action in context of “hospitality” or polite gracious expressions, it’s bloody rude. We’re involved throughout the day in countless transactions, many informal, but adhering to some tradition of normative propriety in a nominally civilized culture. Especially in the subtler “trading” we presume a “usual baseline of fairness”. We might “pay” in tolerance of a Stupidity in exchange for X thing we value proportionately. This game, IMO, rips my attention out of my erstwhile calm demeanor and shoves crap adverts, stinging into my face. Often in excess of what I thought I’d agree to endure.. Not like Words w Friends, though. That game gives players an experience platform, and then serially rapes brains w it’s “escape room” of marketing entrapments. My friends and I see going to quit apps that pancake adds, pick our pockets of demographic data, from and harangue us w eerie precision. Free game. Few features, not many choices. My brain feels cheap and used and dirty. Nasty crap- game.. But not as invasive as words w friends.
Freecell Review.
by JimFrustration on 2018/11/03 14:03
Freecell is a very entertaining and challenging card game. I Have the automatic feature in play which creates some frustration in that often when one wants to make a play on the “table,” the automatic feature sends that card to the “Ace” pile requiring the undo feature to manually move that card to the table play. One might say, “Well, just undo the auto feature🤓.” Then to manually manipulate each card separately just takes too long.
An amazing app
by Retiredpsyc on 2020/05/08 21:12
Retirement is not the best time in your life to begin learning (or applying) self discipline in your recreational time or activities. The case in point is my use of this app since I find myself being drawn to firing up my app and trying to best my quickest completion. That’s puzzling in itself since the app clearly rewards anyone who can muster up a bit of foresight, planning acumen and a bit of impulse control. The author(s) of this app are due a hearty thanks and I am now sending it their way.
The Ads removed 3 stars
by Cbc1973y on 2018/12/28 15:59
The game and game play are both great, it’s just the advertisements that really make this app hard to love. I don’t mind ads, keeps apps free.. but this app has ads so loud that it makes it impossible to play discreetly. The ads used to be silent and sometimes had some cool stuff but now I just try to get the ad to go away quickly because everyone in the room is now looking at you for playing something so loud. You can turn the volume down on your phone, but that’s annoying because you sometimes don’t always remember to turn it back up. If the ads were silent this would be a five star game for me.
Challenging
by Brillena on 2018/06/24 03:28
I have several FreeCell and solitaire games on my phone and most are extremely easy to win. But this game is different! I definitely don’t win every single game! It’s a lot harder than the other FreeCell games out there. And yes, I sometimes play my other FreeCell games just so I can win. But if I want a challenge, then I choose to play this one. I hit the undo button a lot, I also replay levels a lot...but it’s so much fun!
Selecting "achievements" doesn't do anything???
by SareyCanary on 2020/04/23 02:24
I like your app a lot. I don't mind the ads, except the ones that play sound, even though I have sound turned off in the game. EDIT: I actually DO mind the ads since, I win many of my games in under a minute, but I’ve put up with it for some reason. I’m not worried enough about achievements to turn on Game Center in settings. How hilarious the day I rate/received response, my app froze (first time ever), but strangely, I could move cards around anywhere on the screen! Sending an email with requested info.
Simple Classic
by JYCish6 on 2017/01/17 08:48
I've always liked Free Cell as you can win every game if you have the patience and don't mind restarting. This version is no different from my previous experience with virtual free cell. I love the challenge of the game as it really makes you think. The commercials pop up at reasonable rates and aren't too annoying. The game has played smoothly with no glitches keep up the good work.
Controlling
by tiredofmedia on 2017/11/06 14:18
I have problems with ads for other games that have begun to show up periodically between FreeCell and Solitaire games that actually commandere your computer, forcing you to watch and listen to their NOISE, thus forcing you to shutdown your computer to stop them from forcing you to the App Store. Why would anyone want to do business with such an app company ? An add with an X in the corner is sufficient. Maybe I should look for another game supplier if this keeps up or gets worse?
App refuses to close!
by HazelinChicago on 2020/02/04 07:20
This, as the cliche goes, is a revolting new development: The app refuses to close. Even turning my device off won’t close the app — it just reloads the moment I turn my device back on. The only way to close it is to delete it. What’s wrong with this picture? DEAR DEVELOPER: I am very tech-savvy and I know how to close an app. Your app suddenly refused to close, no matter which method I tried. The only way I could get it to stop was to delete it! UPDATE (2/4/20): The problem was corrected for a while, but now it’s back, and worse. The app won’t close at all and won’t allow me to get into any of my other apps. This is really disgusting. FIX YOUR BLOODY APP!!!!!
Spending lots of time on FreeCell
by Kado48 on 2018/09/29 13:17
I really enjoy using this app and spend way to much time with it. I’d prefer to pay a fee and lose the ads. They are annoying, but I do understand the need to make money. What I would love to see most is to be able to see the number of the FreeCell game I am playing. If there were another app that had that, and was just as nice, I would chose that app. Good future enhancement.
Perhaps more puzzle than game.
by kena54321 on 2017/10/24 17:44
Fun to play, I have found I can complete EVERY “game”. So this is. Not really a game of chance since dealing the cards never seems to give you a setup you cannot complete. Some games are a great challenge a and some games are fairly simple. Since you can complete every game it can be considered a puzzle, at least I consider it a puzzle. I have played thousands of games, it never gets dull. Enjoy.
Aweful don’t download
by Missallowed on 2017/11/01 02:43
This AP has CHRONIC pop up ads!!!! You cannot play more than one game at a time!!! There is a pop up ads after every game and when you try to “x” out of it you are diverted to a website and have to back out of the AP and reload the game. It is the worst I have ever experienced. I don’t mind the occasional ad because I understand the revenue stream but this is beyond ridiculous!!!!
Stats don’t work right anymore
by bkstratguy on 2018/10/11 19:30
Hi. This is a favorite and has been a staple on my iPad for years. I don’t know if it was the iOS 12 update, or an app update, but now the total time for a game doesn’t work right. It tracks elapsed time correctly during a game, but when you finish it seems to randomly increase the total time of the game, usually around double what it actually was. Sure hope you can fix before I have to look for an alternative! I even tried switching to auto play which I don’t want to use, and get same results. Thanks for listening.
Great game
by Speedynakpak on 2017/04/13 22:58
I love this game! I like thinking games that even when they are difficult, they make you keep trying till you solve them. I get sore eyes from playing too much but still come back. That's what I call a good game. I still haven't had a game that I couldn't solve, even if I had to put it down and try again later, point being I kept coming back.
Lost my streak
by good grief, is that name taken on 2020/07/07 20:16
We need to have a question given to us of “are you sure you want a new game” if we hit new game instead of replay. I did it again, I was so close to my old streak when I hit new game instead of replay on a easy shuffle. Please, this is frustrating when I hit new game instead of replay or move the new game button to the bottom of the list, so it is further away from the replay button. Would appreciate it, thank you
Love the gameplay. Hate the ads!
by pamdnrjcndnsjjdnfnr on 2018/05/14 14:56
I love everything about the look, feel and gameplay of this App. It is the best version of Free Cell I have played over the years! Definitely 5 stars! I HATE everything about the ads! Pesky and annoying doesn't begin to describe it. They are tricky to get rid of and you gotta wait way too long to do so. Playing in Airplane Mode is the only thing that keeps me from deleting this game. Definitely zero stars! So only three stars overall. If only there was an ad free version...
Used to be better
by viaixtapa on 2017/10/26 21:01
Used to be enjoyable. Now one of their ads causes the whole thing to freeze. Has me looking for alternatives. Hope they fix it. I’m updating this review and adding 2 stars. Developer responded quickly, asking me to screen shot the problem ad. I tried to do that and the problem ad has now been gone for 2 days. They must have found and removed it on their own. Appreciate the good support, fast response.
The game is great but...
by OhBeeOne4U on 2020/05/08 03:46
The game is great but for all those people who, like me, play it when I am on conference calls, ‘watching tv’ etc., it has a very annoying glitch in that every so often, even though my phone is on silent, certain ads blast out obnoxiously loud... BUSTED! for not quite paying attention as I should be! ...seriously I know I shouldn’t complain for being revealed but it truly is annoying and I have deleted it in the past out of frustration...only to download it again - dang addictions!!
Great update
by Lafe on 2018/05/15 14:21
Brainium has made this game so fun to play. Cards go where they should when moving between rows - they took the boring part of the mechanics and made it easy. The only reason I didn’t give it five stars is because some of the ads are two-page ads: you close the first window and a second one opens which, in some cases, doesn’t show the ‘x’ to close for several seconds. Annoying. But worth it. Great update.
Why has avg (time/plays) tracking quit updating?
by Middle-aged-mutt on 2017/08/05 18:30
This is still one of my favorites...but very disappointed that it no longer tracks my averages in the stats. One of the main challenges for me was trying to get the time lower. After an update I noticed the little star disappeared when I beat an average. If this feature is still there but the setting has changed, please let me know how to get it back!
Free Cell is better!
by Xyxyxy124 on 2018/12/04 00:58
Free cell beats regular solitaire any day of the week. In the first place there is nearly always a way to win, so you can undo any move or start any game over if you go up a blind alley. What seems like a bad deal in solitaire really is a bad deal and you lose, but in free cell, just back up and start again. In the second place, I’ve tried other free cell apps, and this one plays obvious cards for you, so when I lift a card and the under-card flies away it makes me feel like I’ve helped it escape. The ads are not intrusive, and the strategy is addictive. I recommend any free cell fan choose Brainium over the other free cell apps. I tried the others and came back every time! J. Godbey, Dallas
Great game
by Bwanazzing on 2017/10/23 21:26
I've been playing this game for several years and I never get tired of it. Either I just now realized it or I have a newer version than before, but now I'm able to turn off auto-play. I much prefer playing it without auto-play right until it becomes obvious that I'm going to win. Then I can tap a button and auto-play finishes it off.
Skill; not chance
by Atom Starfire on 2020/05/13 10:10
Everyday game is winnable. Not all games are winnable; like solitaire is as much or more about LUCK and the hand you are dealt; even one card turn solitaire. Free cell is an excellent way to jump start your brain after you first wake up. Wash your face, brush your teeth, kiss your spouse and kids, pour your favorite morning drink and play for a few hands or at least 11 minutes.
Free Cell
by Brown Street on 2018/09/22 05:20
The nicest setting for the best of all solitaire games! It’s best because it’s always winnable if you use your wits, far more interesting than just a game of chance! And always a new goal to set—can I finish faster? In fewer moves? How long can I go without having to replay a lost game? I start every computer session with a Free Cell game just to put me in a happy, productive mood, feeling smart!
Solid. Needs no improvement.
by Mike Mele on 2017/01/31 19:57
Very good app. The game plays smoothly, and it's very simple and reliable. The bonus features (achievements) are kind of weak, but they avoid being over the top too. No complaints, but if the bonus features were more on point without detracting from the main game, even better.
Unstoppable Video Ads
by PCHomepage on 2018/06/19 00:30
As with any free software, ads are expected. After all, why not have a revenue stream for all the work? On this version of Freecell, that's not been a problem until yesterday when all of a sudden loud video ads have started and they do not have any way to stop them short of closing the app, which I did several times. Finally I had enough and have removed the app from my iPad! The game itself is fine but the recent nature of the ads is beyond too much and not acceptable. This app will never be reinstalled.
Meh
by MMEK53 on 2019/09/03 02:40
This is not the same as the one I play in Microsoft. I do not like this version. It is limited on moves you are allowed. Stupid. I deleted it and will try to find a better app. It is true too where people said they try to trick you into downloading an app you do not want! It puts an X in the left corner, but if you tap that one, it takes you to the place to download it. Be careful. You must wait until the full ad is done and then you may close it with faint X in right corner.
Ads longer & problematic
by Jim Cheydleur on 2020/04/27 23:22
I like this app, I’m willing to tolerate short ads to stick with the free version. However, recently some ads have become much longer, and some more problematic getting out of the ad back into the app. I particularly find it offensive that when I have the app set for no sound that an ad would come on with loud music. That’s not the way that should work. This has particularly become a problem recently. May have to give it up.
Good game but really bad ads
by SoUknow on 2018/05/21 01:09
This would be a decent game if the ads were not so horrible. Half the time, you have to close the game because there is no X to get out of a blank screen or you have to wait to get out of a 10 second ad. Who does that? And every time someone complains about the ridiculous ads, the developers reply with a canned message saying sorry, please send us a screenshot! Yeah right. Lame! I might even pay for this game without the obnoxious ads but there doesn’t seem to be an option to buy it ad-free. Too bad.
Addictive
by Sothie-Sasha on 2017/11/28 01:38
I agree with some of the reviews--the game is not perfect--but I so enjoy it. It's relaxing. But I’m having trouble with the “casino” ads. There’s no x to push. And so I give in and click the Apple App button, as if I want to get the casino ad. Then I try to hit the Free Cell button on upper left, but it’s too close to another button, so it won’t work for me. I’m on an iPad Air 2. Please test your ads on each platform/system.
Love the game. Hate the new ads
by Frustrated in Medina on 2020/11/22 16:13
Love this game, but the new ads are very annoying. At times it takes up to 20 tries to get out of the ad and back to the game. It gets to the point where I have to reboot my iPad just to get rid of them. I understand you have to use the ads, but when I hit the X to exit and go back to the game, that means I’m not interested in what you are selling and don’t expect to reboot to get rid of.
Nice entertainment, annoying rating requirement
by Ajtorresp on 2017/02/07 06:07
I have enjoined playing this solitaire for years, and I have previously rated before. However, this requirement to keep reading it, or I cannot play the next game unless I close it is abusive and annoying. I do not see why I have to keep rating it every time it asks me to do it. I already did it.
heartbroken
by Minecraft 749683085 on 2020/10/30 19:01
this is by far the best freecell app on the app store, but im a lil upset right now. my mom taught me how to play and had a 100% win rate. which isnt to say that she was the best freecell player, but she was very persistent. so, i do the same thing now. even if it takes me 30 minutes i would never give up on a game. i had a 1073 game win streak, when one game i tried to hit the replay button to reset the board and accidentally hit new game instead. just like that my win rate went from 100% to 99.9%. and it would stay there forever. i think that there should be a confirmation if you hit new game. or at least an option to turn that feature on. other than that, its my favorite game app, so long as i’m not clumsy!

Too many ads
Fun game but ads are not functioning
by QueenHarvest16 on 2020/11/26 19:33
The game functions smoothly and is fun to play. The ads between games are not too bad, except for one recent issue. About one out of every three ads never shows an X to get out. I have to close the app and reopen to get into another game.
Too many reviews of other games

Love the game. Hate the new ads
by Frustrated in Medina on 2020/11/22 16:13
Love this game, but the new ads are very annoying. At times it takes up to 20 tries to get out of the ad and back to the game. It gets to the point where I have to reboot my iPad just to get rid of them. I understand you have to use the ads, but when I hit the X to exit and go back to the game, that means I’m not interested in what you are selling and don’t expect to reboot to get rid of.
Easy to use.

The FreeCell game is easy to use, and well designed.

Bugs - ?
by Nekharpa on 2020/11/20 21:20
I have played this particular game for years, really enjoying the game and this particular design considerably. Perhaps your phone won’t have the issues I will describe below. If not, it’s a terrific game. I have tired of many other games, including various ones that are like Candy Crush, story games, Sim-type games, and Sudoku. But I never tire of this Free Cell. This past year it started freezing on me. I reinstalled and enjoyed a number of games, but it acted up again. I have uninstalled and reinstalled many times (taking it totally off of my phone, through settings) after shutting down and restarting my phone a number of times (it usually plays a handful of games before causing problems again). I’m playing on iPhone 7Plus with IOS 12.4.1 Before I continue I will say that the folks who own this game have been responsive to my past concerns. If I could remember how to contact them directly, I would. Now, to the issue. The problem is that after the first few (100?) games (this occurs after a similar # of games each time), it freezes completely when a game ends, or it freezes until I close and open it once or twice, presenting the X in upper right corner as happens during an Ad. Then, though a new layout appears, the cards “float,” never aligning properly. Today I never could restart the game, even after shutting off my phone. While I’m presenting issues, there are many ads that are truly annoying. One is Word Play (I think), the game that erroneously claims it is important for preventing memory loss, and erroneously claims to determine IQ by how well you play the game. It takes forever to get this ad off the phone. I usually quit the game instead. But the worst ad has ants bloodily eating a rodent. It is disgusting. I always quit the game when I see this ad.

Too much advertising and freezing up
by eloi rules on 2020/11/10 02:52
I like the look and action of this game better than most of the others, the the ads get aggressive and after a while the whole thing freezes. Try other free cell games.
Do you love to watch ads?
by GB BikeDude on 2020/11/09 07:23
If you like watching ads, get this game. They make you stare at the ad for a while before a “Skip ad” button appears. Press that button and they show more of the ad. Guess they don’t know what “Skip ad” means. If you want play FreeCell, choose another game.
Ads
by Lib25geo on 2020/11/09 02:35
Today I got an ad titled “see her panties slide off”. You need to be much much better about who you sell ads to. This is entirely inappropriate!! Another obnoxious add. This one for a toy called Boxes with an upside down turtle helplessly waving its legs around.. what kind of reality is that? Hey there.. nov 8 2020 and watching gambling apps on my FreeCell app. Can you please fix this?
Let me turn off sounds
by MoreBetterCookies on 2020/11/08 17:25
I have played for years, often while my girlfriend sleeps. Recently, they decided that it’s a great idea, even though I have all sounds turned OFF, that they should play the sounds of slot machines. I am not allowed to decide if I don’t want noise. So, the company is called Brainium, seems like they could know, sometimes we play at work, when we should be sleeping, when we want, but don’t want noise. I sent an email, but nothing. I play less now, but may have to quit. Unhappy!!!!!

Old favorite but
by Evelyndoeshair on 2020/11/02 02:54
Old favorite but the ads are at times longer than the game. Some ads run a full video that you can’t move past. Then they do the 5 second thing as well... annoying for an old game that used to come free on your PC years ago!

heartbroken
by Minecraft 749683085 on 2020/10/30 19:01
this is by far the best freecell app on the app store, but im a lil upset right now. my mom taught me how to play and had a 100% win rate. which isnt to say that she was the best freecell player, but she was very persistent. so, i do the same thing now. even if it takes me 30 minutes i would never give up on a game. i had a 1073 game win streak, when one game i tried to hit the replay button to reset the board and accidentally hit new game instead. just like that my win rate went from 100% to 99.9%. and it would stay there forever. i think that there should be a confirmation if you hit new game. or at least an option to turn that feature on. other than that, its my favorite game app, so long as i’m not clumsy!

Great Freecell game, really invasive ads
by Bitchen! on 2020/10/08 15:04
I’ve been playing this Freecell game for years and really like it. However...they have been gradually increasing the invasive nature of the ads the push up every tome you launch a new game. The latest one makes you keep it on the screen for 20 seconds. I’ve probably spent way too much time on this game already so will be deleting it if this doesn’t improve. I’d be willing to pay $5 to get rid of the ads....
Love it. But
by cookiebreath on 2020/10/08 14:31
Sometimes very difficult to move cards. They are rejected by the pile you want to move them to unless you tap or hold it there for a minute. Didn't use to be like this. Also, if you simply tap the card it will go to a pile automatically but that may not be the pile you intended and you still have to move it. Overall good game.
TOO MANY ADS!!!!

I love the layout of this game and it’s super fun and simple but I wish there was a way to opt out of ads. I’m getting multiple ads between games and upon opening the app. I have no issue paying the standard 99cents or even 1.99 to stop getting ads but that didn’t even appear to be an option. I’m going to switch to an app with less ads or a way to opt out.

Just missing numbered games
by Mondorange on 2020/09/08 16:55
This app is almost perfect. The FreeCell that came with Windows in the 90s had one distinct advantage: every game was numbered and you could search for a specific numbered game. For example, a friend might say they were are having a tough time with game number 3576, and you could search for and play that game yourself if you wanted. Additionally, one minor flaw is that one of the ads on the free version will play sound whether or not you have sounds muted. It is the “homescapes” ad and often features characters screaming and circus music. If you’re trying to relax while listening to music on your phone while playing, this can be quite annoying as the ad forces you to watch it for five seconds. Otherwise, this is one of the better FreeCell apps out there.
Used to love it
by jhwc1947 on 2020/09/08 12:41
The ads have gotten longer and more annoying. I am spending more time irritated by adds than it takes me to play one deal. Only time it’s been enjoyable lately was when our internet went down—ads don’t come through.

Needs better control of moving cards
by MS0545 on 2020/09/02 23:24
Sometimes tapping a card and allowing the "game" to choose the move leads to a move that is not optimal. Can the game designers have the game query the player which move (among the possible options) is desired? Completely agree. I was on track to get to 3mm points and certain critical moves, but the game wouldn’t let me make the moves.

Obnoxious ad audio if using headphones
by jct1589 on 2020/09/01 02:12
The game is fine — what you’d expect from a FreeCell game. There are ads between every game, and the ads for other games tend to have awful, obnoxiously loud audio that plays automatically if you’re using headphones or any kind of speaker while playing.

1 Star for inappropriate ads
by DyreLogan on 2020/08/03 09:20
Every single ad was extremely inappropriate. Dealing with smutty themes, suggestive nudity, suggestive sexual themes and other suggestive adult themes. For this, even though I like this game, I deleted it. I will not have such horrible ads showing every time I start a new game. Shame on the developer for choosing these types of ads to show during their game. Deleted.

I have to try 3 or 4 times to get them to where I want them. 3) Not a relaxing game at all due to the above - I’m uninstalling. 4) “I could’ve been a contenda!”

by DeeDerDee on 2018/09/02 15:55
I lost my favorite free cell app when Apple upgraded to 10, but luckily, I found this app, and it quickly become my favorite! I rated 5 stars because for me it is a 5 Star app: Infinite replay because, let’s face it, not all games are won on the first try. Great mechanics! Just tap to make card go where it should, or just drag to place manually. I found a screen color and size to make it easy on aging eyes. The undo button! Saved me many a time. And even a hint for when the brain says ?? Yes, the ads are annoying (my old app didn’t do that!) but with my ad blocker, only a minor issue. BUT recently I’m not very happy with the performance! I either missed an update or the update is flawed!! My screen freezes or pauses, usually upon tapping “new game”, but occasionally during regular play. Super troublesome!! Always requiring closing entirely out of the app and reopening, only to find the next move is to hit the “new game” button again! Please help! I love playing this game and cannot find another app to equal this one. I play on an iPad Air 2.
You Want A Brain Stimulator That Is Fun, and Challenging? This is It.
by JParkerPhilips on 2020/01/15 14:02
I love this game, and there are more than 1,000,000 different bands to play. They start off fairly easy and over time they gradually become more challenging. This game is a great way to stimulate and challenge your mind in your spare time, and all for a very inexpensive price. I play it often, and have for several years now. The more I play, the sharper, and better I get at it. There are some hands that are easy, and some that are somewhat challenging, and there are a few that are really hard, but I eventually win them all. I will not go onto another hand until I finish, and win the hand I’m on. It’s a whole lot of fun!!
Great game for free sale addicts
by Jmarlin on 2018/03/16 00:22
This version three plays easily and so far the advertising is only a little obnoxious. As long as they as can be turned off I appreciate that they allow me to play free. This is one of my favorite games to just pick up for a few minutes. But I have been playing an updated version on my new iPad and the advertisements are much worse and some don't allow you to close them for way too long. Addendum: There is at least one ad for a game that does not have a way to close it in order to continue play. I need to completely close the game in order to get rid of the ad. I cannot continue until I do that. I don’t mind ads but I should think this kind of captured audience would be illegal. I am almost to the point of trying to find a different version of FreeCell. I have been playing this game for many years and up until recently it has been the best I have found. I have down graded my rating from five stars to one star because of this problem.

Good,but scoring needs improvement
by Techie 1111 on 2020/01/23 14:42
Time, Best time, moves and scores are the only thing you track. So you put the emphasis on beating your best time in general which just makes people play every game fast instead of using good strategy. Why don’t you have my “best moves” and “best scores”? Best moves would put the Emphasis on strategy. I would like to be able to compare my best moves per that game to other peoples and to my previous moves per that game. At the moment, I pay no attention to other people’s scores since I am so far away from theirs and I can’t replay to get any better. I would rather play against myself to see if I can improve moves or time in the same game. Also I use to be able to see my achievements but that doesn’t work anymore. Why?
What did you do?
by Navy fan on 2019/05/17 17:20
I’ve been playing this for years. It’s been my go-to game when I have ofd moments or want to relax. I liked playing it quietly, with my phone on vibrate and the sound turned off when I was waiting for an appointment, or even if I woke up in the muddle of the night and was having trouble getting back to sleep. Last night — three times in a row — when I wanted to start a new game, a video ad came on with blaring sound. I checked my settings. The sound in my game was off, but rhe volume hsd been cranked up om my phone. I reset my phone volume and tried again. Same thing. I was trying to uneind before bed and this had exactly the opposite effect. If you can’t fix this so that I can play quietly, without disturbing others (and don’t tell me to wear ear buds — I hate them), I’ll have to stop playing and find a new favorite game. UPDATE: It seems the developer got on this right away. The very next dsy the problem was solved. Today I received a response from the developer. I really enjoy this game and appreciate the developer’s level of customer service.
Brainium has sold out to the loudest, most obnoxious ads
by GrifKat on 2018/10/08 13:39
Freecell is a wonderful, challenging game that I've enjoyed for years, but I think Brainium has finally cured my addiction to it. The ads are so loud, they blowout my headphones. They don't offer X to close, until they have interrupted my gameplay for at least 7 seconds, and when I hit X to close, it's ignored for a few seconds more. And I will see the same ad I've closed 3 to 7 times more before it leaves me alone. Some of the ads are so grabby, that they offer Opt-out on personal data including location, but the opt-out button has misleading language and poor functionality. Please fix this!
Really great FreeCell app
by Matt Shuler on 2020/01/28 11:32
I thoroughly enjoy playing this FreeCell app (with the exception of the annoying ads - thank goodness they can be skipped after a few seconds) and I play it everyday. The only complaint that I can see is that nothing happens when I click on the “Scores” button or the “Achievements” button. The game doesn’t necessarily glitch or anything like that, it just doesn’t do anything when either of those two buttons are pressed. I like using achievements to improve my game play where possible, but I’m not even able to see what all achievements haven’t been obtained yet. But that’s not really a major complaint or anything; the rest of the app functions properly, it’s just a mild annoyance.
Brainium Free Cell
by Notyetsenile on 2019/02/28 13:39
This is both a stimulating as well as relaxing game which could not be better. I am definitely hooked! Thank you for man, many hours of fun - and of course, ever so often a surprise, when there are suddenly no more moves. The best thing is that then I can go back a move (or several) or start all over again by clicking on Replay. This game has been upgraded several times since I first started playing. When I make a move that frees up all other moves, the game saves me the trouble, goes on autopilot and finishes itself off. I am then free to tackle the next challenge - a bit spooky, but definitely neat.
Quality
by Tommy4Gun on 2018/06/25 14:52
I like your game. When it works right. You can tap on a card and supposedly it is to go up. But it doesn’t all the time and you have to tap it several times. Frustrating when you ate trying to beat a time, many times the game hangs up and nothing will move. Other times the screen goes blank. I have not yet learned how to recover from this so I just power down, rest a while and come back. Even then at times it is still broken.l As a former instructor of programmers, I wonder if your people have a clue on how to adequately test a program. I also included the concept of quality in the process. The practical definition of the term is DO IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME. It is the most cost effective approach. It seems that your people can't even spell the word if I spotted them all consonants.
Fun, but...
by Hybxxsw on 2016/11/08 00:13
Fun, free, & features -- what more could you want? It has one problem which may be their problem or maybe mine (a shortage of storage). Every once in a while it locks up and won't move a card. I have to push the button on the side of my iPad and get the "reduced" screen. I touch that screen & it comes back and is playable again. It's not a big problem & is easily solved so I really don't have anything major to complain about. Get the app! Enjoy it! Have fun! Newer versions have a lot more advertisements. I'm sticking with my outdated version. It's great!
Best Free Cell I’ve Found!!
by Rach D 86 on 2017/12/22 08:11
Love the esthetic and the simplicity. Good auto play options and simple backgrounds that are easy on the eyes (I prefer blue). Free cell is pretty much the same anywhere you play it, but it’s nice to have a clean looking interface. Brainium’s other games are fun as well. I love that the ad comes up only in between games and you can exit fairly quickly in most of them. So nice not to accidentally be clicking adds every ten seconds like in some games. The achievements feature is fun too! Adds a new challenge to a pretty straightforward game!
Challenging game!
by Bobland5 on 2016/11/14 06:07
Since a few years ago, when I started playing this game on my computer. I found that every game can be won (at least, so far). Yet it remains fun and challenging. I use the back up liberally (something nearly impossible with a deck of cards). I also appreciate that the game is saved when I have to put it aside. I can return and complete the game later. Two suggestions I would make are: show a percentage of games won and an average score, both resettable for competing against yourself or others. Thanks for the great app.
FreeCell
by bear4278 on 2020/03/28 23:54
I hate it when the program moves a card to its ace and won’t let you bring it back down. The 3 of hearts just jumped up there and I can’t use it to move the 2 of clubs which is blocking a string of plays. This is the third or four time this kind of thing has happened to me and it takes away the sense of having control of my own moves. I quit. I’ll look for another program. I know there is one out there because my mom turned me onto freecell and. I cloud move cards down.
Almost perfect
by PartitionedSpace on 2019/04/29 12:09
This is an almost perfect game of FreeCell. Sharp graphics, smooth animation and a decent auto play. The auto play on double click is a bit too aggressive moving cards to the ace piles instead of the free cells but a quick undo fixes that. It does have ads but they’re short and only show up every few games. My only real complaint is the upgrade to ad free. There isn’t one. There is a (somewhat pricey) ad free version available but you can’t upgrade to it, you’ve got to download a new app. It’s a bit of a hassle and you lose your statistics.
Addictive
by GWD4 on 2019/10/02 17:13
I like various solitaire games to pass time, and free cell is one of the best. It is very well done. One feature that is helpful when starting is automatically playing cards on the foundation. Turning this feature off might make it more challenging,although I prefer to have it on. As others have suggested, saving unsolved boards would be nice. That said, as things are, the game is excellent and addictive. I recommend it. BTW: i find the cost of the ad free version worthwhile
Do we agree my attention is a commodity?
by Braddogh on 2019/12/06 04:19
Know why cashiers, etc. (mostly) don’t rip the money or card out of your hands at checkout? Somewhere they learned to associate the action in context of “hospitality” or polite gracious expressions, it’s bloody rude. We’re involved throughout the day in countless transactions, many informal, but adhering to some tradition of normative propriety in a nominally civilized culture. Especially in the subtler “trading” we presume a “usual baseline of fairness”. We might “pay” in tolerance of a Stupidity in exchange for X thing we value proportionately. This game, IMO, rips my attention out of my erstwhile calm demeanor and shoves crap adverts, stinging into my face. Often in excess of what I thought I’d agree to endure.. Not like Words w Friends, though. That game gives players an experience platform, and then serially rapes brains w it’s “escape room” of marketing entrapments. My friends and I see going to quit apps that pancake adds, pick our pockets of demographic data, from and harangue us w eerie precision. Free game. Few features, not many choices. My brain feels cheap and used and dirty. Nasty crap- game.. But not as invasive as words w friends.
Freecell Review.
by JimFrustration on 2018/11/03 14:03
Freecell is a very entertaining and challenging card game. I Have the automatic feature in play which creates some frustration in that often when one wants to make a play on the “table,” the automatic feature sends that card to the “Ace” pile requiring the undo feature to manually move that card to the table play. One might say, “Well, just undo the auto feature🤓.” Then to manually manipulate each card separately just takes too long.
An amazing app
by Retiredpsyc on 2020/05/08 21:12
Retirement is not the best time in your life to begin learning (or applying) self discipline in your recreational time or activities. The case in point is my use of this app since I find myself being drawn to firing up my app and trying to best my quickest completion. That’s puzzling in itself since the app clearly rewards anyone who can muster up a bit of foresight, planning acumen and a bit of impulse control. The author(s) of this app are due a hearty thanks and I am now sending it their way.
The Ads removed 3 stars
by Cbc1973y on 2018/12/28 15:59
The game and game play are both great, it’s just the advertisements that really make this app hard to love. I don’t mind ads, keeps apps free.. but this app has ads so loud that it makes it impossible to play discreetly. The ads used to be silent and sometimes had some cool stuff but now I just try to get the ad to go away quickly because everyone in the room is now looking at you for playing something so loud. You can turn the volume down on your phone, but that’s annoying because you sometimes don’t always remember to turn it back up. If the ads were silent this would be a five star game for me.
Challenging
by Brillena on 2018/06/24 03:28
I have several FreeCell and solitaire games on my phone and most are extremely easy to win. But this game is different! I definitely don’t win every single game! It’s a lot harder than the other FreeCell games out there. And yes, I sometimes play my other FreeCell games just so I can win. But if I want a challenge, then I choose to play this one. I hit the undo button a lot, I also replay levels a lot...but it’s so much fun!
Selecting "achievements" doesn't do anything???
by SareyCanary on 2020/04/23 02:24
I like your app a lot. I don't mind the ads, except the ones that play sound, even though I have sound turned off in the game. EDIT: I actually DO mind the ads since, I win many of my games in under a minute, but I’ve put up with it for some reason. I’m not worried enough about achievements to turn on Game Center in settings. How hilarious the day I rate/received response, my app froze (first time ever), but strangely, I could move cards around anywhere on the screen! Sending an email with requested info.
Simple Classic
by JYCish6 on 2017/01/17 08:48
I've always liked Free Cell as you can win every game if you have the patience and don't mind restarting. This version is no different from my previous experience with virtual free cell. I love the challenge of the game as it really makes you think. The commercials pop up at reasonable rates and aren't too annoying. The game has played smoothly with no glitches keep up the good work.
Controlling
by tiredofmedia on 2017/11/06 14:18
I have problems with ads for other games that have begun to show up periodically between FreeCell and Solitaire games that actually commandere your computer, forcing you to watch and listen to their NOISE, thus forcing you to shutdown your computer to stop them from forcing you to the App Store. Why would anyone want to do business with such an app company ? An add with an X in the corner is sufficient. Maybe I should look for another game supplier if this keeps up or gets worse?
App refuses to close!
by HazelinChicago on 2020/02/04 07:20
This, as the cliche goes, is a revolting new development: The app refuses to close. Even turning my device off won’t close the app — it just reloads the moment I turn my device back on. The only way to close it is to delete it. What’s wrong with this picture? DEAR DEVELOPER: I am very tech-savvy and I know how to close an app. Your app suddenly refused to close, no matter which method I tried. The only way I could get it to stop was to delete it! UPDATE (2/4/20): The problem was corrected for a while, but now it’s back, and worse. The app won’t close at all and won’t allow me to get into any of my other apps. This is really disgusting. FIX YOUR BLOODY APP!!!!!
Spending lots of time on FreeCell
by Kado48 on 2018/09/29 13:17
I really enjoy using this app and spend way to much time with it. I’d prefer to pay a fee and lose the ads. They are annoying, but I do understand the need to make money. What I would love to see most is to be able to see the number of the FreeCell game I am playing. If there were another app that had that, and was just as nice, I would chose that app. Good future enhancement.
Perhaps more puzzle than game.
by kena54321 on 2017/10/24 17:44
Fun to play, I have found I can complete EVERY “game”. So this is. Not really a game of chance since dealing the cards never seems to give you a setup you cannot complete. Some games are a great challenge a and some games are fairly simple. Since you can complete every game it can be considered a puzzle, at least I consider it a puzzle. I have played thousands of games, it never gets dull. Enjoy.
Aweful don’t download
by Missallowed on 2017/11/01 02:43
This AP has CHRONIC pop up ads!!!! You cannot play more than one game at a time!!! There is a pop up ads after every game and when you try to “x” out of it you are diverted to a website and have to back out of the AP and reload the game. It is the worst I have ever experienced. I don’t mind the occasional ad because I understand the revenue stream but this is beyond ridiculous!!!!
Stats don’t work right anymore
by bkstratguy on 2018/10/11 19:30
Hi. This is a favorite and has been a staple on my iPad for years. I don’t know if it was the iOS 12 update, or an app update, but now the total time for a game doesn’t work right. It tracks elapsed time correctly during a game, but when you finish it seems to randomly increase the total time of the game, usually around double what it actually was. Sure hope you can fix before I have to look for an alternative! I even tried switching to auto play which I don’t want to use, and get same results. Thanks for listening.
Great game
by Speedynakpak on 2017/04/13 22:58
I love this game! I like thinking games that even when they are difficult, they make you keep trying till you solve them. I get sore eyes from playing too much but still come back. That's what I call a good game. I still haven't had a game that I couldn't solve, even if I had to put it down and try again later, point being I kept coming back.
Lost my streak
by good grief, is that name taken on 2020/07/07 20:16
We need to have a question given to us of “are you sure you want a new game” if we hit new game instead of replay. I did it again, I was so close to my old streak when I hit new game instead of replay on a easy shuffle. Please, this is frustrating when I hit new game instead of replay or move the new game button to the bottom of the list, so it is further away from the replay button. Would appreciate it, thank you
Love the gameplay. Hate the ads!
by pamdnrjcndnsjjdnfnr on 2018/05/14 14:56
I love everything about the look, feel and gameplay of this App. It is the best version of Free Cell I have played over the years! Definitely 5 stars! I HATE everything about the ads! Pesky and annoying doesn't begin to describe it. They are tricky to get rid of and you gotta wait way too long to do so. Playing in Airplane Mode is the only thing that keeps me from deleting this game. Definitely zero stars! So only three stars overall. If only there was an ad free version...
Used to be better
by viaixtapa on 2017/10/26 21:01
Used to be enjoyable. Now one of their ads causes the whole thing to freeze. Has me looking for alternatives. Hope they fix it. I’m updating this review and adding 2 stars. Developer responded quickly, asking me to screen shot the problem ad. I tried to do that and the problem ad has now been gone for 2 days. They must have found and removed it on their own. Appreciate the good support, fast response.
The game is great but...
by OhBeeOne4U on 2020/05/08 03:46
The game is great but for all those people who, like me, play it when I am on conference calls, ‘watching tv’ etc., it has a very annoying glitch in that every so often, even though my phone is on silent, certain ads blast out obnoxiously loud... BUSTED! for not quite paying attention as I should be! ...seriously I know I shouldn’t complain for being revealed but it truly is annoying and I have deleted it in the past out of frustration...only to download it again - dang addictions!!
Great update
by Lafe on 2018/05/15 14:21
Brainium has made this game so fun to play. Cards go where they should when moving between rows - they took the boring part of the mechanics and made it easy. The only reason I didn’t give it five stars is because some of the ads are two-page ads: you close the first window and a second one opens which, in some cases, doesn’t show the ‘x’ to close for several seconds. Annoying. But worth it. Great update.
Why has avg (time/plays) tracking quit updating?
by Middle-aged-mutt on 2017/08/05 18:30
This is still one of my favorites...but very disappointed that it no longer tracks my averages in the stats. One of the main challenges for me was trying to get the time lower. After an update I noticed the little star disappeared when I beat an average. If this feature is still there but the setting has changed, please let me know how to get it back!
Free Cell is better!
by Xyxyxy124 on 2018/12/04 00:58
Free cell beats regular solitaire any day of the week. In the first place there is nearly always a way to win, so you can undo any move or start any game over if you go up a blind alley. What seems like a bad deal in solitaire really is a bad deal and you lose, but in free cell, just back up and start again. In the second place, I’ve tried other free cell apps, and this one plays obvious cards for you, so when I lift a card and the under-card flies away it makes me feel like I’ve helped it escape. The ads are not intrusive, and the strategy is addictive. I recommend any free cell fan choose Brainium over the other free cell apps. I tried the others and came back every time! J. Godbey, Dallas
Great game
by Bwanazzing on 2017/10/23 21:26
I've been playing this game for several years and I never get tired of it. Either I just now realized it or I have a newer version than before, but now I'm able to turn off auto-play. I much prefer playing it without auto-play right until it becomes obvious that I'm going to win. Then I can tap a button and auto-play finishes it off.
Skill; not chance
by Atom Starfire on 2020/05/13 10:10
Everyday game is winnable. Not all games are winnable; like solitaire is as much or more about LUCK and the hand you are dealt; even one card turn solitaire. Free cell is an excellent way to jump start your brain after you first wake up. Wash your face, brush your teeth, kiss your spouse and kids, pour your favorite morning drink and play for a few hands or at least 11 minutes.
Free Cell
by Brown Street on 2018/09/22 05:20
The nicest setting for the best of all solitaire games! It’s best because it’s always winnable if you use your wits, far more interesting than just a game of chance! And always a new goal to set—can I finish faster? In fewer moves? How long can I go without having to replay a lost game? I start every computer session with a Free Cell game just to put me in a happy, productive mood, feeling smart!
Solid. Needs no improvement.
by Mike Mele on 2017/01/31 19:57
Very good app. The game plays smoothly, and it's very simple and reliable. The bonus features (achievements) are kind of weak, but they avoid being over the top too. No complaints, but if the bonus features were more on point without detracting from the main game, even better.
Unstoppable Video Ads
by PCHomepage on 2018/06/19 00:30
As with any free software, ads are expected. After all, why not have a revenue stream for all the work? On this version of Freecell, that's not been a problem until yesterday when all of a sudden loud video ads have started and they do not have any way to stop them short of closing the app, which I did several times. Finally I had enough and have removed the app from my iPad! The game itself is fine but the recent nature of the ads is beyond too much and not acceptable. This app will never be reinstalled.
Meh
by MMEK53 on 2019/09/03 02:40
This is not the same as the one I play in Microsoft. I do not like this version. It is limited on moves you are allowed. Stupid. I deleted it and will try to find a better app. It is true too where people said they try to trick you into downloading an app you do not want! It puts an X in the left corner, but if you tap that one, it takes you to the place to download it. Be careful. You must wait until the full ad is done and then you may close it with faint X in right corner.
Ads longer & problematic
by Jim Cheydleur on 2020/04/27 23:22
I like this app, I’m willing to tolerate short ads to stick with the free version. However, recently some ads have become much longer, and some more problematic getting out of the ad back into the app. I particularly find it offensive that when I have the app set for no sound that an ad would come on with loud music. That’s not the way that should work. This has particularly become a problem recently. May have to give it up.
Good game but really bad ads
by SoUknow on 2018/05/21 01:09
This would be a decent game if the ads were not so horrible. Half the time, you have to close the game because there is no X to get out of a blank screen or you have to wait to get out of a 10 second ad. Who does that? And every time someone complains about the ridiculous ads, the developers reply with a canned message saying sorry, please send us a screenshot! Yeah right. Lame! I might even pay for this game without the obnoxious ads but there doesn’t seem to be an option to buy it ad-free. Too bad.
Addictive
by Sothie-Sasha on 2017/11/28 01:38
I agree with some of the reviews--the game is not perfect--but I so enjoy it. It's relaxing. But I’m having trouble with the “casino” ads. There’s no x to push. And so I give in and click the Apple App button, as if I want to get the casino ad. Then I try to hit the Free Cell button on upper left, but it’s too close to another button, so it won’t work for me. I’m on an iPad Air 2. Please test your ads on each platform/system.
Love the game. Hate the new ads
by Frustrated in Medina on 2020/11/22 16:13
Love this game, but the new ads are very annoying. At times it takes up to 20 tries to get out of the ad and back to the game. It gets to the point where I have to reboot my iPad just to get rid of them. I understand you have to use the ads, but when I hit the X to exit and go back to the game, that means I’m not interested in what you are selling and don’t expect to reboot to get rid of.
Nice entertainment, annoying rating requirement
by Ajtorresp on 2017/02/07 06:07
I have enjoined playing this solitaire for years, and I have previously rated before. However, this requirement to keep reading it, or I cannot play the next game unless I close it is abusive and annoying. I do not see why I have to keep rating it every time it asks me to do it. I already did it.
heartbroken
by Minecraft 749683085 on 2020/10/30 19:01
this is by far the best freecell app on the app store, but im a lil upset right now. my mom taught me how to play and had a 100% win rate. which isnt to say that she was the best freecell player, but she was very persistent. so, i do the same thing now. even if it takes me 30 minutes i would never give up on a game. i had a 1073 game win streak, when one game i tried to hit the replay button to reset the board and accidentally hit new game instead. just like that my win rate went from 100% to 99.9%. and it would stay there forever. i think that there should be a confirmation if you hit new game. or at least an option to turn that feature on. other than that, its my favorite game app, so long as i’m not clumsy!
