Super Zoom Bomb destroys fun
Game zooms into small section of the board (seems to always be bottom and mid-to-right section) and will not unzoom (tried dbl click and pinch). In super zoom, can't really move cards but can sometimes nudge. Seems to happen in every game (not sure about hard Klondike or bonus game). Super zoom happens randomly- has happened when I'm not touching the game, when I am touching the game, and during a deal. When it happened during the deal, cards froze mid-deal (half flipped over). Hope it's not annoying that I keep reporting, but it happens A LOT, and I'm trying to give you deets so you can fix. BTW, after super zoom bomb destroys my fun, autosave keeps me from total fury. Have only played on iPad. I believe in you. FIX IT!
I love the layout, the cards are realistic. However, I've noticed in Freecell, I am unable to move more than two cards at a time into different rows. Every once in awhile I'm able to, and then 2 minutes later, its back to being unable to move multiple cards. The other game modes seem to work normally. I wrote the developer, and received no response. Really annoying.
Pros: beautiful, realistic. Has all of the solitaire games for the same price as apps offering only one game. Feels natural to flick and drag cards across screen.
Cons: I think a winnable toggle would be nice or at least an indicator that it is theoretically possible to win any given game would help me learn the harder games like spider (hard).
