This is a small, fast, and good-looking implementation of the classic Freecell solitaire game. All 52 cards in the deck are dealt face up in eight stacks. The object of the game is to move all the cards into sequential stacks by suit. To help you do this, you may move single cards to one of four free areas - hence the name Freecell - or on top of another card in the play area if it is the opposite color and one higher in value. For example, you can place a 2 of clubs on top of a 3 of diamonds. Cards are automatically moved to the exit area if it is safe to do so.
I have tried to make this app as clean and simple as possible. Touch a card to select it. Touch it again to move it to a free cell. Or touch the destination where you want it to go. Tap once on the background if you selected the wrong card. Tap twice on the background if you would like to undo or quit the game. If you leave the game it will pick up right where you left off when you return. I've designed the card faces to be easy to read at a glance.
