Customer Reviews

Very disappointed

This app used to be good before upgrades to 4.0. Terrible bidding graphics that changed with initial upgrade. Only minimally better with 2 upgrade fixes. Used to trust the bidding, but after upgrade, bidding robots have been sketchy. It's as if a new company took over in upgrade 4.0 and messed up a great, reliable game! I used to play it all the time. Now, not so much. Still can be helpful for learning play of the hand due to repetition, but I really miss version 3.whatever the last number was. Is GreatGames a part of BridgeBaron? Did BridgeBaron sanction this app?

Crashes

*Still* crashing constantly when trying to start a new game. The app either quits, or shows an error message that the bridge engine failed to initialize. If you are persistent it will eventually load, after at least 10 tries. And then it works fine as long as it stays running. As soon as you stop playing, it gets terminated. On relaunch it goes back to its start screen, where you then have to fight with it all over again to get it to start a new game. It’s been like this since the app was updated for iOS 11. Very frustrating.

A Good Way to Stay Sharp

Bridge players use repetition as a way to stay sharp at the game. But we all find ourselves at times with life interfering. It might be travel, illness, unavailability of a favorite partner, or just a string of activities with people who don't share your enthusiasm for bridge. Bridge Baron is an excellent way to play 10, 25 or 50 hands without the need for others. It isn't perfect, but neither is my favorite partner.
