Ratings and Reviews
This App is useless if you are on i.o.s 11
Bridge Island has few problems, slow to connect, you lose connection frequently and very slow to respond to bids or play. The app is NOT compatible with i.o.s 11 so if you upgraded to i.o.s 11 the app becomes useless till the app developer also upgrades . To the developer please upgrade the app to be compatible with i.o.s. 11 for IPhone.
Nicely done, we just need more players. Sign on!
I like it a lot. Reminds me of the original MSN Zone Bridge. Has three issues, however. First, there aren't enough players around yet, so you have to be a bit patient (probably not for long). Second, it doesn't provide history of hands you played on table or the cumulative IMP. Third, does not allow to choose a custom convention card. You just select from the 4 major standards. I would have to assume/hope that future updates will add these features. 'Hope this helps.
Problem counting tricks
This application has a lot of potential but not unless your robots can correctly attribute tricks to the winner. There have been multiple occasions where I have lost tricks that have been won. Last time I had three trump cards with none outstanding and only won one trick. These problems occur when playing robots
