  • Looking for more backgrounds, EG: Pride :) Jun 5, 2019

    By Starfleek
    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! :)

  • Glitchy and slow Mar 29, 2019

    By jomomma8
    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!

  • I don’t love the newest app update Mar 8, 2019

    By Melaniekorourke
    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.

    Was ok for a while, but now it crashes right after finishing a game, which tends to be a pain during the dailies, as it does not save.

    Click out of the ads too fast, get a losing hand!!... Watch them and you can get 8 out of 10 hands a winner. It has become obvious that this game is not on the level. Neither is Zynga. I find it kinda sick.

    Used to be good at, but no more. Crashes all the time, but the worst part is it intentionally reshuffles the deck during gameplay, to ensure you use bonuses which require extra ad views.

  • No, screw you. Feb 7, 2020

    By Einherjar 1775
    I’ve had this game for a long time, a few years on a few different devices, and never before have I ever just quit a game due to the sheer obnoxiousness of an ad. It’s a grey bar with a single blinking Mail icon in the center, and if you click it, it takes you to a ridiculous “Congratulations, you’re a winner!” pages. Are you serious? You sold ad space to a pop-up scam? And if you don’t click the ad, the player is forced to see it blinking furiously in the most aggravatingly distraction way possible? This is what you’ve become? Your whole business model is you annoy us or you try to screw us with a scam? No. You wanna screw us? To hell with that. Screw you. *Edit - So you made an app, and you can’t even regulate what ads you play? Pathetic. I’d give you another chance, if I felt for one second that you were being sincere. Thankfully, I deleted the app right before I left my review. Have fun with your business model of aggravating people until they delete your app as well.

  1. Stay busy for hours! Solitaire simplified: streamline your gameplay with unlimited solitaire
  2. Grabbed the wrong card? Forget it with an undo button! Track your personal scores, leaderboards, and achievements
  3. Beautiful large cards, convenient left-handed support, and optional sounds. Move a card with a single tap

  • I don't know what all of the fuss is about... Dec 16, 2017

    By OracleOfCourage
    This is a great, balanced version of solitaire. Sure it has ads, but ads are present in all free games. Instead of whining about not winning, use your head and figure out where you went wrong, problem solve and learn from your mistakes. On a side note (with no disrespect to the devs), I find it baffling that this game is updated as frequently as it is. How many bugs can a game of solitaire have! Despite the fact that the last ten updates or so were bug fixes, I have never experienced a crash or glitch to date, and I will continue to play and enjoy this great game! Whatever you guys are doing in those updates, keep it up!

  • Continued review from before Apr 2, 2018

    By msjm421
    Well the App Store doesn’t seem to let me make multiple reviews, but there is always another way 😉. This game is fun. I see reviews on here about not winning, but I think I win more than I loose. At least it feels that way. But the winning feels earned not given. And this is my talking on the phone game. Also, the ads aren’t as intrusive as on other games. For instance, most games have ads that pop up and you can’t cancel until it finishes, after 30 - 45 seconds btw, but not this game. The ads can be canceled after about 10 sec or less. Another thing is the ads are actually something I’m interested in. I’ve clicked on a few, which I never do on other games. ——- Second Review——- Zynga contacted me shortly after my review below with a fix which worked well. I uninstalled and reinstalled the game and the bug is gone. It isn’t often app developers contact me directly even when I give a negative review, so I’m impressed. Thank you Zynga. ——- Original review—— (Now the new game button just plays adds without a new game ever starting.)

  • Works fine Mar 13, 2018

    By Ol81
    To everyone who says the game is rigged: you must not know how to play solitaire. Go get an old fashioned deck of cards and see how many you can win based on pure chance. My average for 3 card draw was about 25% and I know there were pleanty of games I passed up that better players could have won. The trick to this app is you have to press the undo button when you get stuck and find different orders to play your cards so that different cards can be uncovered. With the new update, my old problem with being unable to start a new game was fixed, so I changed my rating from 3 to 5 starts so long as the problem doesn't come back.

  • This game in no scam. Mar 3, 2018

    By AllRugbyBoy13
    This game is no scam. Sure, it has ads, but what free game doesn’t. Complaining about the app making the ads tricky to close is stupid too. That is a common practice among all apps, and I’m pretty sure it’s not even the apps that design the ads. The game is certainly not rigged, when I first got this I had never played solitaire before, so I wasn’t able to win for a bit. Still, after a few games I got the hang of it and begun to win some games. Now, I win most of the games that I play. If someone wants to complain about how this game is rigged, I think that they just simply are not good at this game and need to stop complaining so much. It’s just a game after all.

  • No fun May 1, 2018

    By MD Exec
    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.

  • Hints Are Useless Aug 17, 2019

    By diac1
    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.

  • Vegas Mode is crap Apr 29, 2020

    By SufficientD
    I can play the daily challenges and regular games and have a win rate of about 80% within three deck flips. As soon as you enter Vegas mode the game just throws impossible to win matches at you. Doesn’t matter if you’re on amateur, novice, expert or above. Playing the Vegas mode games I find myself winning maybe 5-10% of the time. Very clearly the developers just want you to lose your points so you have to buy some from the store. Yes I understand that you put up your points to play, but when you can go 15-20 games in amateur in a row with never winning and MAYBE breaking even on a round, you can see how crap Vegas mode is. I’ve also made it through a few full games in Vegas mode where there wasn’t a single move to be done. Make your money from the ads, don’t purposefully cheat players out of hard earned points just to make a quick buck.

  • Fun; When it Works Apr 5, 2020

    By TyphonIsKing
    I constantly find myself having to reopen the app because it has glitches out in some way. Sometimes the numbers blend into the cards around it, sometimes a card doesn’t reveal properly, sometimes it just freezes. And then, recently, I experienced a new, more frustrating glitch. I had 2 cards in the deck and 2 unrevealed cards. So, I should’ve only been missing 2 cards; the unrevealed ones. However, there were 3 missing cards. I tried everything to see if I was missing something and even sent photos to friends. But there was simply no way to proceed because 1 card was missing and I couldn’t complete the game without it. So now I’m wondering how many times, when I have to start over, is due to me not making the correct moves and how many times it’s because the game glitched out.

  • Ads Stop my podcasts & audiobooks May 16, 2018

    By Whirlingderv
    I like to play a few games of solitaire and listen to podcasts or audiobooks before going to sleep, but with this game any audio on my phone stops when the ads in between games start, and the podcast or audiobook audio doesn’t restart when the ad ends. I have to quit the game and navigate back to my podcast or audiobook app to restart. The ads themselves don’t even have audio, they just stop my audio player for no reason. None of my other card or game apps do this. It is particularly annoying because you often lose this solitary game pretty much right away, so I am starting new games every few minutes, which leads to a lot of annoying navigation around my phone to restart my audio and get back to the game over and over again. For this reason I’m deleting this app and picking another solitaire app.
