Great for novice

I'm just now learning to play Canasta. This app has helped me understand the game. Graphics are nice. I'm enjoying it so far.

I would prefer an option to buy the game to get rid of the commercials.

Update June 16. Graphics & play are still fine (usually) but the commercials are wearing me out. There are 2 commercials every time I star a new game. To make matters worse, sometimes the game play grinds to a crawl in the middle of a hand. The only cure I've found is to close the game, reopen the app & resume. And then I get to watch 2 more 30 second commercials. Sometimes I have to restart 2 or 3 times during a hand. I'm starting to really dislike Phillips 66 & any form of slots (these play over & over & over). Please, just let me pay for the game so I don't have to watch the pregnant couple wander through the gas station store ever again!

Update June 25. The app has been updated & the issue with the game play slowing to a crawl seems to have been fixed. Hats off to the developer for the improvement.


Play with friends not available

It’s a fun game but may as well be solitaire. I also play gin rummy plus, which seems to be much more developed platform. I can play with people I know anytime. (I’ll pay for a private table, if it were available)
I’ve learned how to play Canasta now and constantly beat the computer, it’s getting boring..After winning you have an option to watch a commercial to double your XP points, but after playing this game for over 6 months, I still don’t know what XP points are. I’ve written to the developer and am still waiting for an answer.
Hello——-Developers?? Why is this not explained...Still waiting


Love the game of Canasta!!

This app seems to have fewer bugs & hangups than some of the other Canasta apps I've used (& deleted!) before. My biggest complaints:
1. There NEEDS to be a system to pick up ONLY the top card of the pile, which MUST be used in your meld, BEFORE the rest of the pile is added to your hand!
2. To be TRUE to the RULES, a player should NOT be able to pick up the deck UNLESS she/he plays 2 real cards, NOT 1 real & 1 wild!
Other than that, I do love the design & graphics. I really do hope that these changes will be made soon... as in, otherwise, it will be deleted like so many others.
