Customer Reviews

Nicely put together app.

This app works seamlessly and has a nice selection of games at varying level of difficulty for whatever mood you're in. If you like to play for speed as I do, this app can keep up. Cards grab well and stick and the interface is pleasing, and you can choose card faces and backs among other great customizing features. At times it feels like it could be shuffled better, but it will be a long time before you notice, if ever. And, the developer says higher level versions are shuffled much closer to random with an even wider selection of games. Bottom line, this is a terrific app that will never let you down, a great value, better than any other lite version of any app I've ever used. "Nice work" to the developers.

Great app but now have a request for app for iphone6

I've had this app on my phone for years and I truly love it. In my opinion it's great for some mindless entertainment to help relax. I switched to the iPhone 6 (not the 6 plus) this week though and now when I pull the game up, the way it's all centered on screen in landscape mode -- it looks like there's room for a column of cards in free cell on both the left & right hand sides of the screen. I don't like that because I find myself continually trying to put cards or columns there and I can't because there isn't really a column there on either side. If there is a way you can fix this for us users of the iPhone 6 I think I speak for us all when I say we would REEEALLY appreciate it. Thank you!!!


Ok, I'm sure there are thousands of other card game apps out there that are snazzier and offer more bells and whistles, but this was one of the first I ever played and I still choose it over newer versions. I recently got a new iPad and tried other card games, but none of them measured up to card shark. The cards are nice and large, you can customize them, and I like the tap and drag. I know others do these things, too, but did I mention the cards are LARGE? 😉 Maybe it's just the fact that old habits die hard. Either way, I'm a fan. The worst feature? The fact that it keeps track of the total time played. Have I really wasted this much of my life playing card games??? Please don't tell my kids!
