I play like three games every night before bed. It’s my way of winding down. But now, instead of just running short, minor ads in between games, there is also a banner that runs at the top while you play. Sometimes they’re animated and distracting. I wish it only had the ads in between games. I really dont like the banner, but I get it if you guys need the money. Also There is now a shuffle/hint option at the bottom of the screen. These are cool features, but I wish there was a way to hide that bottom bar while I play the game (kind of like the how you make the toolbar hide, when not in use, on Macs or Windows). I find the bubbles on the “hints” and “shuffles” remaining to also be distracting. That’s a symptom of living in this modern era of push notifications. I hate those bubbles with numbers in them and I’m the sort of person to clear them as soon as they present. Earlier update was a solid 5 stars. These updates make me give it a 4 now.
Hi! Love the app, have picked it up quite a few times over the years and have had a blast each go. This year I had a deal pop up for the subscription and it was 1000% worth it, in my opinion. That’s caused me to play even more! But I have one qualm now. For an app that prides itself on having been around for over 20 years and having the most downloads, I was shocked to discover there’s no background for Pride month! I know this isn’t a major request, nor something many Straight fans would care to see (and yes, they’ll probably be outraged and upset for no reason as it wouldn’t affect them in any way, but that’s just how Straight, non-ally folks respond to rainbow content in June-only June). But as a queer player, it’s nice to see support from the companies that I spent countless hours supporting and recommending to friends. I’m aware I can upload a background myself. But that’s not the same as something from the developer themselves. I mean, the background for June’s monthly challenges is a soccer field... A rose background was introduced around Valentine’s Day. A small gesture would go a long way. It doesn’t even have to be extravagant! Just a suggestion, that hopefully doesn’t fall on deaf ears. And if so, I’d rather not have to take my business elsewhere, but alas! It’s nice to be supported and recognized just as much as the rest of the world, the rest of the holidays. Thanks! :)
I don’t know what happened or why things changed, but the app has gone down hill in the last few weeks. It is soooo slow and glitchy. It is not as responsive when I click on the deck for a new card or to drag a card to a new spot. It lags and takes an extra 10 seconds. This has sapped so much of the relaxing fun out of the app for me. I love this app when I started playing on a long cross country flight with no shows/good books downloaded. I quickly became a little obsessed with it and it successfully helped me quit my Twitter habit :) Instead if scrolling Twitter before bed or sitting in carline, I would play a few games of solitaire. Sadly with the latest update and horrible lag time/glitches, I find the whole thing more annoying than relaxing. It is so frustrating. Please look into why this happens and try to fix the bugs. I also hate the new menu at the bottom with hints and shuffle buttons. Super annoying and unnecessary. Two months ago I’d have given this 5 stars, but no longer. Please fix it!
UPDATE: May 2018: upgraded from 2 to 4 stars Significant improvements since 2017, Most important being reduction in ads impeding play of the game, and improved flow of the actual play. You no longer have to wait a significant period of time and endure a number of obnoxiously loud ads before playing a new game. The win percentage has also increased, Further reducing the percentage of time waiting for ads as opposed to playing the game. The features of this ap are better than other solitaire games are making this a recommendation at this time. If there is a return to a system that appears tvmanipulated to force you into an artificially high number of ad plays, I will delete this ap and downgrade to 1 star. 2017 REVIEW ADS: I have found that my percentage of wins is higher using a standard deck of cards, which to me is suspicious, since when you lose you have to endure another ad before playing another game. That is in addition to the banner ads which can be clicked accidentally. Given how short the actual game is, the percentage of time watching ads is unacceptable, making the game more frustration than fun. TECHNICAL: for the above reasons I have Limited playtime, but I have not had any technical difficulties with the app.
I do like this game & I don't think there are too many ads. I play 3 card draw and I find it challenging but not impossible to win. However, when I've reached a point in the game where I feel it's not win-able I'd like to be able to get confirmation that there are no more moves. If I use a hint, the game will always send me to the deck if there are still cards there, even if none of them can be used. I don't know if I just don't understand the hints correctly or what but I'm quite sure that I've gotten to the point where there are no more useful moves and the hint seems to indicate that I should keep flipping cards. I'd also like to be able to listen to my own music while playing but the ads get in the way of that. Like I said, I don't mind the ads, I even opt to watch the extra ads to earn hints & reshuffles even though I rarely use those options (I've accumulated over 2000 of each) but I'd like to hear my own music while the ads run.
