    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

    For the last 10 days or so when playing on my iPad Pro, I am constantly getting frozen or knocked out of the app. This is frustrating to me and to the players in my virtual club events..

    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

    Very useful App, especially for existing Bridge groups, who would like to play online. Would have been nice to be able to talk together - although we can use Google Meet etc for this purpose.

    Frequent freeze ups. I have to exit the app and reenter. Playing on a Samsung Tablet. This problem is recent and very annoying. Others at table get mad because I don't play. This started in the last couple of months.

    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.

    Experts have to play with newbies because all skill levels are in the same area, instead of separating by skill level. Constant "be nice" messages. There's a lot of frustration among players due to skill differences. Too many ads. Have to wait 5 seconds to close ads. Long waits for players to join tables. When a host removes someone, display the host name in the message so players know who did that. The screen to see the list of open tables just hangs. Not easy to join a specific table.

    All of a sudden, with effect from today, I find bbo occupy full screen on display area of Android screen. The options like "play", "people", "account" etc overlaps with the phone navigation options of "back", "home" and "show open apps" keys. Whoever has done this blooper, please revert it to original status so these do not overlap.

  • 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

    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.

  • Fabulous (and Free!) Nov 16, 2014

    By wkrasl
    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’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.
  • Hate the new version! Jul 19, 2016

    By TN Gma
    This version is ugly, hard to navigate and pops up in the middle of my game when a friend comes in to ask me if I want to "greet them" in Chat. Since I added a lot of top names in bridge as "friends", so I could kibitz them, I bet they would be very surprised if a complete stranger greeted them every time they logged in. This is just one example of the useless features added to his update... The new update looks amateurish and is not functional with so many features Not related to playing bridge online. If you could offer the option of going back to an earlier version I would happily accept... please!
  • Horrible new version Jul 19, 2016

    By Sodasara
    This new version format is horrible... I would play the old version many times at all hours of the day. New version format is not what a bridge player likes to see, put it back in a real hand format. I don't think you'll find anyone that plays bridge liking this format. And the quick auto if your robot partner is dealer!!!! What is that all about. Many bridge players play online for practice and this format is in no way conducive for that (use to be). Afraid I'm now switching to another online bridge until or if you ever change it back. Horrible
