    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.

    There is too long a wait to fill up a table to play. It is very frustrating to have to sit there for 15 or 20 minutes just to get players to come to the table. I wonder when the best times to play would be. How does the host boot and unfriendly player off the table??

  • 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.

    Whenever opponents ask for meaning of a call, a box appears when opps reply. This box many a times doesnot disappear, even after play starts, hindaring cards of north player. It zhould have a 'x' key, or should disappear as soon as call is established.

  • 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

  • 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!

    Play is only average and slow at times on a cellphone. Hand retrieval slow or nonexistent at the end of sessions. New user name Smolesj not found in cellphone people database since monthly requests to correct in March 2020.

  • 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?

  • 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

  • UPDATE- FIXED. Update ruined app for mobile players Dec 15, 2017

    By Ykckby
    Why the landscape view is eliminated with the last update is beyond me, and apparently many others. Loved playing the app but now hate it. It’s cumbersome and far more difficult to play. Please unfix it! UPDATE...thank you thank you thank you for fixing landscape view!

    I use to check on players, my BB Bucks and games posted. But I use my laptop to actually play a game because of split screen to show history of past hands. We need BBO, it is the future of bridge but it must find a way to stop cheating.

    Good app, but several bad points. The hands are clearly not random and you can suddenly be replaced by a robot for no reason. Good for practice hands though.

  • 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.

  • Fun but buttons so small many errors occur Mar 15, 2017

    By RussBo2574575475;7
    This would be a great app if it had decent controls. On my iPhone 6s I very often get the wrong bid or card played because the buttons are so small and close together. There's no way to undo, so many hands are wasted. I just had a great 1 Spade opener transformed into a losing 1 NT for example.

  • 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.
