Too many ads don’t close
by BobFourwall on 2021/02/28 02:25
Mostly Amazon and Google ads have no X or CLOSE visible at the end, so the app has to be restarted or it won’t continue. This is becoming more frequent in my case lately.

I HATE the new advertisement wait time. I have played this game for a long time but will play it a lot less in the future with these screwed up ads.
FreeCell, Need some instructions on what you can & con not do

Can not do
Too much, way too much advertising!
by Dgl11348 on 2021/02/22 13:30
The ads take up too much time. I will be looking for another free cell app.
30 second adds? Really?
by Nimbus27 on 2021/02/22 03:19
Love the game and Brainium’s straightforward representation of FreeCell. Recently I’m getting many adds that are 30 seconds long! And I can’t turn them off early! This is not good.
Too many ads!
by syzy15 on 2021/02/22 00:55
I love to play this game, but this year there are way too many ads and they are very long ads. So I have deleted the game and won’t use it any more. 🙁
Way too many 15 second or more ads
by RodWright on 2021/02/21 15:40
I’ve had this game for years and thoroughly enjoyed it. However, lately the ads are becoming mostly 15 seconds or more with no way to close it, and sometimes having to go to the App Store and then going back to the game. There is no way around this, no option to purchase the game without ads. This particular version of Solitaire is available elsewhere without these ridiculously long ads. Find it elsewhere! I did and I’m now deleting this game from all of my devices.
Great game!
by mjmier on 2021/02/21 13:15
Great game--addicting! Ads are short which i truly appreciate!
Card size too small!
by RINJ21 on 2021/02/21 04:39
What happened to the face of the cards? They are so small I cannot see them well enough to plan the strategy for the game. Everything else is good except the size. I really can’t play this game now.
Too many LONG ads
by Yugadug on 2021/02/19 14:08
I’d give this game 6 stars if they wouldn’t allow 45 seconds + to some of the ads. 10 seconds should be the max an option to be ad free for a one time fee.

Great game but sometimes it locks up and the only solution is to reboot my iPhone.
Keeps freezing up
by Lucilu14 on 2021/02/18 09:21
I really like this game but it freezes up at least three or four times per week. Then I delete it and then reload it. It’s frustrating!😡
Force open Game Center?
by JustAGuyLooking4aHouse on 2021/02/17 22:53
I am sick and flippin tired of Brainium force opening a disabled Game Center. Deleted. As will all Brainium apps.
It’s OK.
by 21drfrank on 2021/02/15 23:22
Needs more sounds. Daily challenge. The games are difficult.
Challenging game play
by Protagonist1c on 2021/02/15 18:17
Really like this game. You can achieve a very long win streak if you’re willing to take the time and use the replay option.
Free Cell - Bad changes
by Mapasol on 2021/02/14 17:31
I am VERY disappointed with the change from my old app from my old iPad to the new app on my new iPad. I can not get my familiar faces on the cards. I don’t like the new face choices. The numbered games were also take away, I miss them.
Tons of advertising
by hate clicking on 2021/02/14 07:52
Extremely, incredibly, & continually long game advertisements.

Just uninstalled
by RD5432 on 2021/02/12 23:38
This is actually my favorite FreeCell game. I’ve been playing it for years. But reluctantly uninstalled after a 20 second ad then launched the App Store automatically. I would purchase an add free version but it is not offered by this developer. UPDATE still one star for the free version but the developer did let me know there is a paid version. Well worth $5 to avoid the ridiculous ads.

Frustration (not Poor Design)
by mr greenstreet on 2021/02/09 19:14
I really like the game, but ... For me, FreeCell is a sorting game. I use the board to build substrings, and then move them and use cards in the free cells to build better substrings. Sometimes the game automatically puts a card on the Aces pile, when I wanted to use that card to manipulate a string. I’m happiest when the game is difficult, and only a narrow path to a win exists. The automatic feature forces me to use the undo button. FreeCell is a little bit like decision making in business .. the order in which you take decisions is important. I’m always reminded of the British phrase “lets sort things out” FreeCell is habit forming. Thanks

Quick past time great
by crossword carla on 2021/02/08 02:50
Use the game frequently for helping past time when waiting on something to happen or finish. Most ads are short which I appreciate. Would have given 5 stars, but game freezes now and then. It usually gets corrected if you wait a day or two, but is aggravating. To delete and reload is also irritating and you lost accumulated stats.
Not happy with the ads
by myfingerhurtsfromclosingads on 2021/02/05 21:14
I don’t mind a quick ad but when I X out for the 1,000,000th time get the hint I’m really not interested. Also why do I have to close the ad 2 times? Now these new ads you’re showing me lock me into an endless loop until I just close the game and start over (I’m talking about you franklin planner)
Was good...
by chipol1732 on 2021/02/04 13:41
...but then it completely locked up on an Autodoc ad. The faulty ad was one of those 2-stage Autodoc ads. The first one ran the usual 5 secs, but the timer never started for the second stage. I needed to reset my iPad to unlock the device.
faulty achievements tracking
by S. Levesque on 2021/02/02 15:09
Excellent game other than faulty achievements tracking. I earned "four of a kind," and the next time I opened the app, it was gone. Later, I earned it again, but this time the achievement was not awarded at all. Addendum - Emailed developer at their request. They made a half-hearted attempt to address the issue, then gave up.

by m#@$ on 2021/01/28 21:26
About every 1 of 10 times it freezes on my IPad Air 4, and no matter how long I wait, it is still frozen, so I have to delete the app them download again. Why is this?
Suggestion/fixes
by Posty_p on 2021/01/26 01:20
Gave it 4 stars because of a few nuances. I have played FreeCell forever and there a few things where this version falls short. Games aren’t numbered so a previous game can’t be revisited. Not that big of a deal. The biggest issue I have. That may be a feature, that can be turned off, that I can’t find. When the next number in the sequence is revealed it automatically gets moved to the final spot. Sometimes that number is needed to drop a number in the holding section. I would prefer if that number didn’t move until clicked. Other than that very good.

Easy to play...nice to change backgrounds and card styles. Very relaxing.. and reliable too ‼️ The solitaire game I used to play would freeze for no apparent reason. I would have to reboot and wait for it to come back . No problem with this game ‼️‼️

Fun to play, once you learn how. Good tutorials. Compare (moves plus score) to 521* to see how well you did on games of varying difficulty. * Bug in autoplay scoring - it should be 520. **They finally fixed the scoring bug, so compare (moves plus score) to 520.

Love this game, but ...
by jspad redux on 2021/01/14 00:35
2 things: Can the fewest moves also be on display like the fastest time? I have literally won thousands of games without a loss thanks to the undo. But I would really like to know how many of those games (number and percentage) of those games were won without using undo. A version I had years ago on my PDA did exactly that. Can you add yhat feature?

have ruined this otherwise excellent game. I have played it for maybe 10+ years and will have to look elsewhere. The ads have multiple screens, each of which has to be closed in EXACTLY the right place. The game freezes at least once a week. I have deleted and re-loaded it several times. So sad...

Color Change
by SEDKI79 on 2021/01/01 16:46
I do not appreciate the color change someone applied to this game. I prefer the original color scheme, not the red. The new scheme is overwhelmingly bright and has lessen the difficulty of the game. It basically hands you the moves. Nothing to think about.

by in a loop on 2020/12/21 15:15
I have used this app for a number of years, but about to quit it. Several of the ads that we all put up with to get it free, are locking up the game. Candy Crush is the worst! Every time that ad comes up, the whole game either stops working or it is stuck in a loop you can’t get out of. My fairly new I phone has to be re-booted. Fix it or lose me.
Freeze
by Lssbrrtt on 2020/12/21 14:03
I love this game and the format, but it freezes often which requires restarting my iPad. Slightly time consuming and a pain in the neck.
This used to be a great game
by Richryal on 2020/12/21 01:16
I have loved this game since the 90s. But now ads pop up between games (totally normal) that can’t be turned off in a reasonable time (not normal). This annoyance destroys the relaxation that is the point of the game for me. I’ve never played a game so long. RIP.
Loved this games but the ads..ugh
by yellow_pineapple on 2020/12/19 12:15
So I am writing a review because I was searching for a different app to play FreeCell. I have loved this app for years - literally! But today I can’t get past the ad for candy crush just to return to my game. This has been happening so much - along with the freezing screens. Disappointed...and still can’t get past the ad.

by BC on 2020/12/14 10:30
Ugh. I love this game/app. I’ve been using it for YEARS! It’s so simple. Not much frills.. BUT NOW the ads after EVERY game are SO ANNOYING & I have NO option to go ad free. I’ve checked everything! I’d also like to be able to see the screen before the timer starts. It should start on first move like every other app/card game.
FreeCell would be nicer if they had a few Xtras
by Priestess Jeanann on 2020/12/12 06:19
It would be nice if I could be able to pause also it would be nice if when the game starts I could have the timer not start as soon as it begins so I have time to look over all the cards. The game is apart of one of my favorites but a few extra things would be nice. I would also like to be able to customize and maybe be able to every so often play against peoples stats. Other then those items the game is good and I almost never seem to have issues. I feel I can’t give it five stars because of the timer issue and being able to pause. Also I don’t care for the automation of the cards after I am done playing and would be nice if in the settings you have the choice to turn that off. Settings the cards shuffle is not a necessity. If I think of anything else I will update my review.
Disappointed
by M. Megee on 2020/12/12 05:52

by Chris M. Moser on 2020/12/01 02:21
I really love this game. I have played so much that I now want to improve my number of moves, but as I complete the last move, it adds between 30 and 50 moves to the count every time. So ignore the count, and have fun sharpening your mind!
Please stop the ads on games in between

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.

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.

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?
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.
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.
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.
FreeCell would be nicer if they had a few Xtras
by Priestess Jeanann on 2020/12/12 06:19
It would be nice if I could be able to pause also it would be nice if when the game starts I could have the timer not start as soon as it begins so I have time to look over all the cards. The game is apart of one of my favorites but a few extra things would be nice. I would also like to be able to customize and maybe be able to every so often play against peoples stats. Other then those items the game is good and I almost never seem to have issues. I feel I can’t give it five stars because of the timer issue and being able to pause. Also I don’t care for the automation of the cards after I am done playing and would be nice if in the settings you have the choice to turn that off. Settings the cards shuffle is not a necessity. If I think of anything else I will update my review.
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.
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?
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!!
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.
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!
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.
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.
Suggestion/fixes
by Posty_p on 2021/01/26 01:20
Gave it 4 stars because of a few nuances. I have played FreeCell forever and there a few things where this version falls short. Games aren’t numbered so a previous game can’t be revisited. Not that big of a deal. The biggest issue I have. That may be a feature, that can be turned off, that I can’t find. When the next number in the sequence is revealed it automatically gets moved to the final spot. Sometimes that number is needed to drop a number in the holding section. I would prefer if that number didn’t move until clicked. Other than that very good.
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.
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.
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!!!!
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?
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.
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.
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!!!!!
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.
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.
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.
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
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
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.
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...
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.
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!
Love this game, but ...
by jspad redux on 2021/01/14 00:35
2 things: Can the fewest moves also be on display like the fastest time? I have literally won thousands of games without a loss thanks to the undo. But I would really like to know how many of those games (number and percentage) of those games were won without using undo. A version I had years ago on my PDA did exactly that. Can you add yhat feature?
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.
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!
Quick past time great
by crossword carla on 2021/02/08 02:50
Use the game frequently for helping past time when waiting on something to happen or finish. Most ads are short which I appreciate. Would have given 5 stars, but game freezes now and then. It usually gets corrected if you wait a day or two, but is aggravating. To delete and reload is also irritating and you lost accumulated stats.
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.

Too many ads don’t close
by BobFourwall on 2021/02/28 02:25
Mostly Amazon and Google ads have no X or CLOSE visible at the end, so the app has to be restarted or it won’t continue. This is becoming more frequent in my case lately.

FreeCell, Need some instructions on what you can & con not do

Too much, way too much advertising!

The ads take up too much time. I will be looking for another free cell app.
30 second adds? Really?
by Nimbus27 on 2021/02/22 03:19
Love the game and Brainium’s straightforward representation of FreeCell. Recently I’m getting many adds that are 30 seconds long! And I can’t turn them off early! This is not good.
Too many ads!
by syzy15 on 2021/02/22 00:55
I love to play this game, but this year there are way too many ads and they are very long ads. So I have deleted the game and won’t use it any more. 🙁
Way too many 15 second or more ads
by RodWright on 2021/02/21 15:40
I’ve had this game for years and thoroughly enjoyed it. However, lately the ads are becoming mostly 15 seconds or more with no way to close it, and sometimes having to go to the App Store and then going back to the game. There is no way around this, no option to purchase the game without ads. This particular version of Solitaire is available elsewhere without these ridiculously long ads. Find it elsewhere! I did and I’m now deleting this game from all of my devices.
Great game!
by mjmier on 2021/02/21 13:15
Great game--addicting! Ads are short which i truly appreciate!
Card size too small!
by RINJ21 on 2021/02/21 04:39
What happened to the face of the cards? They are so small I cannot see them well enough to plan the strategy for the game. Everything else is good except the size. I really can’t play this game now.
Too many LONG ads
by Yugadug on 2021/02/19 14:08
I’d give this game 6 stars if they wouldn’t allow 45 seconds + to some of the ads. 10 seconds should be the max an option to be ad free for a one time fee.

I really like this game but it freezes up at least three or four times per week. Then I delete it and then reload it. It’s frustrating!😡

by Protagonist1c on 2021/02/15 18:17
Really like this game. You can achieve a very long win streak if you’re willing to take the time and use the replay option.
Free Cell - Bad changes
by Mapasol on 2021/02/14 17:31
I am VERY disappointed with the change from my old app from my old iPad to the new app on my new iPad. I can not get my familiar faces on the cards. I don’t like the new face choices. The numbered games were also take away, I miss them.
Tons of advertising

by RD5432 on 2021/02/12 23:38
This is actually my favorite FreeCell game. I’ve been playing it for years. But reluctantly uninstalled after a 20 second ad then launched the App Store automatically. I would purchase an add free version but it is not offered by this developer. UPDATE still one star for the free version but the developer did let me know there is a paid version. Well worth $5 to avoid the ridiculous ads.

Frustration (not Poor Design)
by mr greenstreet on 2021/02/09 19:14
I really like the game, but ... For me, FreeCell is a sorting game. I use the board to build substrings, and then move them and use cards in the free cells to build better substrings. Sometimes the game automatically puts a card on the Aces pile, when I wanted to use that card to manipulate a string. I’m happiest when the game is difficult, and only a narrow path to a win exists. The automatic feature forces me to use the undo button. FreeCell is a little bit like decision making in business .. the order in which you take decisions is important. I’m always reminded of the British phrase “lets sort things out” FreeCell is habit forming. Thanks

Quick past time great
by crossword carla on 2021/02/08 02:50
Use the game frequently for helping past time when waiting on something to happen or finish. Most ads are short which I appreciate. Would have given 5 stars, but game freezes now and then. It usually gets corrected if you wait a day or two, but is aggravating. To delete and reload is also irritating and you lost accumulated stats.
Not happy with the ads
by myfingerhurtsfromclosingads on 2021/02/05 21:14
I don’t mind a quick ad but when I X out for the 1,000,000th time get the hint I’m really not interested. Also why do I have to close the ad 2 times? Now these new ads you’re showing me lock me into an endless loop until I just close the game and start over (I’m talking about you franklin planner)
Was good...
by chipol1732 on 2021/02/04 13:41
...but then it completely locked up on an Autodoc ad. The faulty ad was one of those 2-stage Autodoc ads. The first one ran the usual 5 secs, but the timer never started for the second stage. I needed to reset my iPad to unlock the device.
faulty achievements tracking
by S. Levesque on 2021/02/02 15:09
Excellent game other than faulty achievements tracking. I earned "four of a kind," and the next time I opened the app, it was gone. Later, I earned it again, but this time the achievement was not awarded at all. Addendum - Emailed developer at their request. They made a half-hearted attempt to address the issue, then gave up.

About every 1 of 10 times it freezes on my IPad Air 4, and no matter how long I wait, it is still frozen, so I have to delete the app them download again. Why is this?
Suggestion/fixes
by Posty_p on 2021/01/26 01:20
Gave it 4 stars because of a few nuances. I have played FreeCell forever and there a few things where this version falls short. Games aren’t numbered so a previous game can’t be revisited. Not that big of a deal. The biggest issue I have. That may be a feature, that can be turned off, that I can’t find. When the next number in the sequence is revealed it automatically gets moved to the final spot. Sometimes that number is needed to drop a number in the holding section. I would prefer if that number didn’t move until clicked. Other than that very good.

2 things: Can the fewest moves also be on display like the fastest time? I have literally won thousands of games without a loss thanks to the undo. But I would really like to know how many of those games (number and percentage) of those games were won without using undo. A version I had years ago on my PDA did exactly that. Can you add yhat feature?

I do not appreciate the color change someone applied to this game. I prefer the original color scheme, not the red. The new scheme is overwhelmingly bright and has lessen the difficulty of the game. It basically hands you the moves. Nothing to think about.

by in a loop on 2020/12/21 15:15
I have used this app for a number of years, but about to quit it. Several of the ads that we all put up with to get it free, are locking up the game. Candy Crush is the worst! Every time that ad comes up, the whole game either stops working or it is stuck in a loop you can’t get out of. My fairly new I phone has to be re-booted. Fix it or lose me.

This used to be a great game
by Richryal on 2020/12/21 01:16
I have loved this game since the 90s. But now ads pop up between games (totally normal) that can’t be turned off in a reasonable time (not normal). This annoyance destroys the relaxation that is the point of the game for me. I’ve never played a game so long. RIP.
Loved this games but the ads..ugh
by yellow_pineapple on 2020/12/19 12:15
So I am writing a review because I was searching for a different app to play FreeCell. I have loved this app for years - literally! But today I can’t get past the ad for candy crush just to return to my game. This has been happening so much - along with the freezing screens. Disappointed...and still can’t get past the ad.

Ugh. I love this game/app. I’ve been using it for YEARS! It’s so simple. Not much frills.. BUT NOW the ads after EVERY game are SO ANNOYING & I have NO option to go ad free. I’ve checked everything! I’d also like to be able to see the screen before the timer starts. It should start on first move like every other app/card game.
FreeCell would be nicer if they had a few Xtras
by Priestess Jeanann on 2020/12/12 06:19
It would be nice if I could be able to pause also it would be nice if when the game starts I could have the timer not start as soon as it begins so I have time to look over all the cards. The game is apart of one of my favorites but a few extra things would be nice. I would also like to be able to customize and maybe be able to every so often play against peoples stats. Other then those items the game is good and I almost never seem to have issues. I feel I can’t give it five stars because of the timer issue and being able to pause. Also I don’t care for the automation of the cards after I am done playing and would be nice if in the settings you have the choice to turn that off. Settings the cards shuffle is not a necessity. If I think of anything else I will update my review.

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.

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.

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

Hey there.. nov 8 2020 and watching gambling apps on my FreeCell app. Can you please fix this?

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.
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.
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.
FreeCell would be nicer if they had a few Xtras
by Priestess Jeanann on 2020/12/12 06:19
It would be nice if I could be able to pause also it would be nice if when the game starts I could have the timer not start as soon as it begins so I have time to look over all the cards. The game is apart of one of my favorites but a few extra things would be nice. I would also like to be able to customize and maybe be able to every so often play against peoples stats. Other then those items the game is good and I almost never seem to have issues. I feel I can’t give it five stars because of the timer issue and being able to pause. Also I don’t care for the automation of the cards after I am done playing and would be nice if in the settings you have the choice to turn that off. Settings the cards shuffle is not a necessity. If I think of anything else I will update my review.
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.
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?
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!!
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.
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!
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.
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.
Suggestion/fixes
by Posty_p on 2021/01/26 01:20
Gave it 4 stars because of a few nuances. I have played FreeCell forever and there a few things where this version falls short. Games aren’t numbered so a previous game can’t be revisited. Not that big of a deal. The biggest issue I have. That may be a feature, that can be turned off, that I can’t find. When the next number in the sequence is revealed it automatically gets moved to the final spot. Sometimes that number is needed to drop a number in the holding section. I would prefer if that number didn’t move until clicked. Other than that very good.
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.
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.
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!!!!
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?
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.
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.
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!!!!!
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.
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.
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.
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
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
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.
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...
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.
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!
Love this game, but ...
by jspad redux on 2021/01/14 00:35
2 things: Can the fewest moves also be on display like the fastest time? I have literally won thousands of games without a loss thanks to the undo. But I would really like to know how many of those games (number and percentage) of those games were won without using undo. A version I had years ago on my PDA did exactly that. Can you add yhat feature?
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.
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!
Quick past time great
by crossword carla on 2021/02/08 02:50
Use the game frequently for helping past time when waiting on something to happen or finish. Most ads are short which I appreciate. Would have given 5 stars, but game freezes now and then. It usually gets corrected if you wait a day or two, but is aggravating. To delete and reload is also irritating and you lost accumulated stats.
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.
