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.

Love this App!

I grew up playing card games (i.e., Rummy, Gin, Canasta, Hand and Foot) so I was surprised to come across this app. I figured the app is free and if I don’t enjoy it I’ll delete it. I haven’t deleted it! Some negative reviews I read before downloading the app I now realize are probably sour grapes. If you’re a strategist the hardest level of the game are the most evenly matched. While playing the easier level your opponent may lay down occasionally without meeting point requirements or go out without having a meld. While a little disconcerting, it’s a free app. That being said that particular issue hasn’t occurred during the hardest levels of play. If I could change one thing about this app it would be to add bonus coins a player receives for beating their highest score or the apps highest score. Great little challenging app that’ll take you back to “the good old days.”

A wonderful game

I also played this game as a child. Always wondered if there was an app of Canasta. Found it several months, ago loaded it in my Fire Tablet. Now, the first thing I did was load it on to my first iPhone. I play it to relax & forget everything, else. For somebody who never chills out to don’t bother me now, it’s my time to chill. Thanks for developing a version of a childhood game.
