Favorite chilling app

This was one if the first apps I put on my iPhone back in the 2G days, so it’s a little near n dear to my app ❤️ It's my favorite go to app to pass time or just chill waiting at the Drs office, at airport. I just wish they would add more games. Nice and simple like playing with an actual deck of cards. 2nd time rating: Still my favorite solitaire app, simple no gimmicky with gophers running across the bottom while your trying to play, etc. I've downloaded others and delete them! I also love that you haven't changed the format. I'd still love to see more solitaire games added though like kings corners Russian or Chinese solitaire. I do know you have a paid app, I just wish you could throw a bone or two to the lite version. Thanks for Keep'n it's simple for this devoted app user is the way to go! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

Re-writing a review

I have been playing this version of solitaire games for many years. Changes have occasionally been made in the way cards moved or in the way the board appeared. I’m happy to say that the not-so-great changes have been fixed, and the games are—-after all these years—-working well and looking great. I never tire of playing! In my opinion, thus represents the VERY BEST solitaire games of all the MANY from which one can choose!

Fun for a couple of years

Depending on how much you play this game is only good for a couple of years. They are a terrific couple of years, and that’s why I gave it three stars, but then the game falls apart.

For quite a while now the game has been doing funny things regarding shuffling. The most repeatable aspect is having the same card turn up on consecutive flips of the pile; you turn over 3 of clubs, 3 of clubs, for instance. The first few times I figured “random chance” but it quickly reached the point where this happened every game. In the last week the there have now been TWO sets of consecutive cards in every deck and in two of the last three games I played they have come back-to-back (5 of clubs, 5 of clubs, 5 of spades, 5 of spades flipped over, actual example).

There are some other things going on that can’t be attributed to chance but this one is the most noticeable. The game can still be fun but you do feel like it’s being manipulated. To be honest, I keep playing just to see how bad it gets. Is the shuffling algorithm deteriorating? Have I run out of prerecorded deck shuffles? I don’t know how the game is written so I can’t say but I tried deleting the game last week and then downloading it again and, as recorded above, the game just got worse.

So, fun while it lasted. Maybe I can find another game or maybe Rick Holtzgraf will fulfill my dream and rewrite Solitaire ‘Til Dawn for iOS. Oh, well.
