I'M PICKY, AND I LOVE IT!!!
Not only do they have like a gazillion games, but they have your rules, the neighbors rules, your weird friend Fred's rules, and then the history of all the rules (which you can skip if that's not your thing), and the rules they have chosen to play by, which are usually a conglomerate of the best of all the rules , picked and chosen to make the game Easier to learn, fun to play, and causes less arguments. I originally downloaded this game package only because I couldn't find canasta anywhere else. Then I started playing around with some of the other games, and I fell in love with it! Writing reviews are not my thing, but this App deserves it. I play mostly against the CPU and it learns your style, just as a steady playing partner would. He's getting harder and harder to beat.
( it's getting pretty scary how close we are getting to a true A.I. I'm not so sure there isn't one already living in my computer,)
Best card-pack out there!
I love card games and I love that they are always providing updates. Great job!
I don't know if the improvement is the update or the fact that I now have an iPhone 4 but this is the first time I have used the app since the last horrible update and it is MUCH improved. I haven't played through all of my games but so far it is great. There are a couple of technical glitches (the score screen in Spades was a mess and it was clearly not intended to be) but this is back to being the best "card pack" you can get!
This "update" is horrible. New fronts and backs of cards are blurry and almost unreadable in some games, at least on iPhone 3G. This used to be my go-to game pack but it will soon be erased if the old look does not return. I was reading other reviews which are a more in-depth study of what is wrong with this upgrade but to be honest I haven't even been able to get past the fact that the cards are barely readable - and yes, I tried all of the different "front of card" settings before getting frustrated and coming here to write this review. So if you have come here to read the reviews before purchasing this game I say don't bother until they give us another (hopefully not quite so useless) update.
I play this app on a daily basis. It has a great variety of games. I used to play cards as a kid and forgot how to play many of them. This app has them! It has never crashed on me. The only time I encountered a minor issue was when the cards were being displayed in a long line. I was using my tablet sideways/ landscape mode, so the long line of cards couldn't fit on the screen. The cards shrunk to accommodate the screen but then disappeared. Once I turned the screen on end / portrait mode, the cards came back, no problem.
The only thing I am disappointed about is on an earlier version of the app, there was a game I really liked ( I don't remember the name), when the app was updated, that game wasn't there. I was bummed. There are still plenty of other games within this app, though. I do love it. I just wish I could remember the name of that game so I can request they bring it back.
