  • Some bad user interface Feb 21, 2021

    Opening dialog box with two buttons having identical names and doing two different functions. Not good

    This site needs lot of improvement. Any player can hold the table when he is losing and there is no time limit to remove him by the system . And when he is table owner or his P , can not be removed also. This is a general practice making the site sick

    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.

    The app opens and works onmy old Samsung S7 edge but not on my Samsung S20 plus. Can't seem to understand and sort out. It worked initially but not anymore.

    Great app but not stable. It keeps jumping out of a game and I have to start all over again and eventually giving up. 😖

    Bad UI. (User Interface) on desktops., particularly when compared to the old flash version. The worst part is history. A tiny card diagram at the right bottom corner of the screen. I switched to a 27 inch monitor and the corner still just barely readable. Big strain on my eyes. Tablet version a bit better.

    Since installing, the game has frozen several times during crucial play of duplicate hands. Had to play using Bridgebase website in fear of interuption during play using app.
  • Complete Frustration Jun 9, 2020

    By Shoot me!
    I am new to this app. Joined when the shelter in place began and we all had to go to playing online. Initially all was good, playing solitaire and playing in my clubs virtual tournaments. But I have had nothing but complete frustration trying to play casual games with my husband and/or my normal bridge partner. Only once have I been able to play a casual game with my husband. The problem is when we both sign on, it says that we are both offline. It makes no sense, since we are both online! I have emailed support multiple times and get a generic response. Finally got a response today and it didn’t help at all. I am going to be looking for another avenue to play casual bridge. I’ll keep playing virtual games with my club, as that is my only option. Would love it if somebody at BBO could figure all this out!

  • 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

  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

    Enjoy playing this with 3 friends but not at all with robots. Not too keen playing with strangers.

    If you play bridge, or want to learn, get this app. Anonymous login lets you bid and play with 3 robots, and after every hand - instead of bidding next hand right away - show Results of previous hands for review and playback. You can also see how Other Tables bid and played the identical hand in duplicate competition with you. If you register, you can play for free with and against other real live players or sit and kibitz while watching them play. There is never an obligation to spend money, though you can choose to pay a nominal registration fee for real live world-wide tournaments, personalized tutoring in the Beginner and Intermediate Lounge (BIL) public club room, etc.

  • 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

    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.

  • Getting better Sep 14, 2013

    By rosegirlaustin
    This is definitely getting better. Last time,I downloaded,can only play with robot. Now it is real people, real game different format of scoring and tournament. Some of the content could be displayed in relatively smaller font to make it less interruptive. Team game and tournament host function are really appreciated. I will download again when that is available.

    BBO has two servers, one for casual and one for competitive and they don’t talk or see each other, so if you want to play in a club game go to competitive, if playing casually, the competitive site won’t see you and you won’t be whisked into your competitive tourney, it will think you are off line! If you are playing clubs, your club will help you, don’t blame BBO

  • 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.

  • What a mess! Sep 1, 2016

    By Silly move
    I know intentions were good but the update is awful!! No chat on iPad2. Had to go dig out old original one to be able to play!! The format is horrible and so "in your face" bold when you sign on. Can't find friends as easily. Have to search and fool around to see where everyone is. Why remove the More Tab?? Let one have a good over view of friends while playing Have to tap chat button every time you want to say something and it stops working without reason so then no chat at all. Want the option to go back to 3.91 version. Your advertising is going to suffer from lack of use! Still don't understand why we can't use 3.91?? Customer support emails were more than rude!

  • Disappointed May 31, 2012

    By bridge fan
    Well for long time I waited to play on BBO on my iDevices. Finally I was excited. Downloaded. Well good try BBO. The graphic is lagging. Although it is usable on iPad, it is almost unplayable on my iPhone. The screen is too much squeezed, hard to see the text and really hard to select the correct bid due to the positioning of the buttons. If you want to keep the same playing experience you have on BBO, you must change the UI. In addition, where are the human players? Playing with robots is not fun for me. Please improve as the other bridge programs here have much better setup and playing experience. Standing by till the next improved release.
