Fun but needs updates

I enjoy using the app until during a game it freezes on the scorecard screen and I have to restart the app and play from scratch. This happens about every other game. Once that bug is fixed and we have the option to play online, the game is definitely 5 star worthy.

Dear Developer...

I love this game. However, in your last update, you made a change that is confusing. The Ace is now at the bottom of the run instead of the top where you had it before (Ace, 2,3 4). So when the cards are grouped by suit the Ace should be at the end of the grouping as it is the highest card in that suit ( 10, Jack, Queen, King, Ace). That was the way you had it before, but now it’s really confusing because it is at the beginning of the grouping. Can you fix this?

I used to play this with my family as a kid. Thanks for providing this app, Logan. I am loving it! I would like to see the ability to change the AI difficulty level and include local or online human players, but it is still a great app and a lot of fun!
