    I am a huge fan of BridgeBase Online and was absolutely thrilled to learn there was an iOS version. More so, when I learned that there is a way to pay for your Bridge bucks via iTunes. That being said, I can’t find this option and their help desk insists that it should be showing up on the menu bar on the bottom after logging in. Well, it isn’t, and their own screenshots confirm this. Their help desk stopped replying to messages regarding the ticket I opened, so I guess this is just the way it is. Better help desk and having features it promises would get me to change my review to a 5.

  • Too much down time Sep 13, 2016

    By MartyFlutterbutt
    This is a good game although it doesn't help much if you are learning. The biggest issue is the amount of time you sit waiting for someone to bid/play. It appears that a lot of players just leave the game without making their departure known. So you are sitting there waiting for someone who isn't there. They need to make sure everyone who asks for a seat knows how to exit the game properly.

  • Issue starting a table with friends May 29, 2020

    By Gklprrs
    Have been playing with friends for years. As of a couple weeks ago, it’s like we sign on in a parallel universe. I can see one other player is online and the other two players can see each other but don’t get invite to play from me and other player. Have had to sign in and out many times to finally be able to see each other. Support people responded with something completely unrelated to my email and haven’t responded for over 2 weeks now to my reply that asked them to please read and respond to my original two questions. Just sent another reply asking them to reply to the first question. Did an upgrade trial but canceling and looking for another bridge app

  • Doesn't have features like older version Nov 10, 2017

    By JazyJudy
    What happened to the features that used to be part of this app when playing wth robots? The older version showed other tables that played the hands so you could gauge your skills against other players and learn from your mistakes and it also showed the IMP points earned. This is not near the program that I was using. The other version was exactly like the one I use on my computer. Also, this version will not display in landscape view--a definite turn off. Anybody know how to revert to the older version?

    Trying to play with a predetermined group of people is practically impossible. It keeps saying "player offline" even though i can message the person on the app. Likewise, sometimes two people can see each other online, and another two people can see each other as online, but the two groups can't play a game together because the other players are "offline".

  • Update ruins a good app Nov 11, 2017

    By I110O
    Prior to this update the iPad BBO app was my preferred interface to BBO. With this update landscape mode is broken and the user interface has changed in what feels like arbitrary and haphazard ways with no apparent benefit. I'm now playing on my desktop computer instead, which is a shame because that means I play much less often. I give two stars because the app does work, just not as well as it used to.

  1. The mobile way to play and watch contract bridge on Bridge Base Online - one of the world's largest bridge sites
  2. Participate anonymously in games against artificial intelligence, or join tournaments against other online players in real-time
  3. Don't feel like playing right now? Settle in to watch the experts play and just chat with other fellow game enthusiasts on the site

    They have kept up marvelously with all the covid-19 problems, setting up full tournaments, as needed. Meanwhile, I'm still able to play my little practice games. Incredible that they've been able to accomplish and maintain this all so quickly.

    I don't know- I guess judging from all the negative comments together with my experience with the abundance of "high-level" bridge snobs in the world- I suppose it's no surprise that there are so many negative reviews. But the REALITY is that if you want to have a good game of bridge ANY time of the day or night, you can just go to the CASUAL room and have at it. It's usually filled with competent players. Besides, who wants to play with these horrible tournament-driven as***les anyway?

  • I Am Not Alone v. 5.0 Issued Dec 7, 2017

    By Docweas
    No Ipad users can get this "update" to view in landscape orientation. Contacted their help folks three times and they seem on another planet. Beware updates; when they are issued they are ofter downgrades. As far as nasty people on site, you will find them everyehere on the internet. Just keep plugging. Dec. 7 update: Took a month to repair the chaos unleashed in discussion above. Nonetheless, it's still the best show in town for online bridge players

  • Potential Sep 28, 2020

    By BUB nicknames
    I’m not one to pay when I can play for free, this app allows for that perfectly. My main issue is there is no settings feature that allows you to turn off sounds and keep them off forever. It wouldn’t be so bad but the app stops background (music) apps. So frustrating to have to go back and forth to try and listen to something while playing.

  • Stop "Improving" the app! Jun 3, 2018

    By DancEncounters
    I love playing bridge with people all over the world. But every time they update the app the layout gets less and less user friendly. The latest is not putting trumps on top. (Or on the left). And you now have to go through multiple steps to check what other tables did. It is getting to the point that it isn't worth the aggravation.

    Used to think bbol was great. A few niggles but mainly minor until the May 13th update. Now you have to subscribe to the new 'Prime' service to be able to play a casual game with friends. I can understand the need to recover costs but it would have been better to be upfront about what you were doing. Spent an hour last night just trying to get a casual table started. Would be nice if history captured 'Total Points' games too rather than only those played for IMPs.

  • Yuck! Apr 8, 2018

    By All Charged Up
    This has to be one of the worst bridge sites on the internet. The robots cannot bid properly and the side panel that tells you why they bid that way is wrong at least 7 times out of 10. Soooo glad I didn’t pay money for such a crock of crap. I read somewhere Bridge Base had replaced the robots with real players. Well, guess what! If they have, I don’t think they’ve ever played bridge in their life. The only thing they seem to be capable of is sitting in the corner and chewing on the cards.

  • Do Not Use This App! Apr 21, 2020

    By Crop Crazy
    This is apparently a third party app that charges you outrageous $$$ for your BBO Dollars, about a 50% markup when using their “Shop.” It has removed the BB$ option from the upper right three-bar box. You should be paying only one US dollar for one BBO dollar. A ripoff! Instead, just go to the BBO main site via Google and then install a shortcut icon on your screen. You will have all the features. And you will pay the standard 1:1 exchange rate.
