Ditto missing key features

There isn’t anything about this version that is fun for me. The only thing I like is being able to change the skill level. But on a difficult level, I can’t repeat the game to work on my skill—see what I missed. I always like auto complete, but not auto ‘fill’, putting a card or cards on the pile before I am ready to move them. There are no time or score designations, and no stats, like I have on my iPhone. I wish the game designers could get this very long-standing game right by reading the reviews. Put ten games together, and we might have all the features we know we like, but much playing could freeze our computers like I read on other game reviews. None of these features are high game science. Our favorite features are found on some game somewhere. I wish I had read the reviews befor I actually bought this. So I learned to read the reviews on other games before buying, and they don’t seem to be much better. I’ll stick to playing on my iPhone until they get this app right.

A Bug, and a Problem

I'm a FreeCell addict, and have it on all my machines. This one is a nice one, except for two problems I've had with it. When I click on a card or a stack of cards, they may move but often not to the place where they are supposed to move; and sometimes they won't move at all either by clicking the stack or by trying to drag it even when I have enough free cells to be able to do so. The other problem is that while I think of myself as a medium-difficulty player, the easy games are too easy and present no clallenge while the next level of difficulty is often too difficult so that sometimes I can't solve it even after much planful trying. There needs to be a difficulty level in between those two.

It does the job.

I got addicted to Freecell when I used Windows, which came with Freecell. What I miss from the Windows Freecell is that it kept accumulated statistics, so that I would judge how much I was improving. So when Mac OS X became my operating system, I found Freecell in Yahoo games, but it keeps making Firefox crash. So, now I am using this Freecell app, which doesn't crash my browser because it doesn't use my browser. The things that some others criticize are things I consider to be features and not flaws - such as the ability to undo moves, to go back to a mistake and correct it rather than starting again from scratch, and the ability to choose the difficulty of the game.
