I am a true beginner and want to know how to play bridge. I started with FunBridge, which is great for the play, but was lacking in teaching about the bid. So I found this App, and admittedly I was a little irritated when I opened it and discovered that only three chapters were included and I would need to buy the rest. BUT.... this is extremely well done! The three free chapters are very comprehensive, and the format allows for a lot of practice for each concept, and builds on concepts very well. I will gladly pay for the rest of the chapters. Exactly what I was looking for.

Thanks for the review! I'm glad you've found LearnBridge to be a useful tool in your Bridge journey :)
Excellent with some minor issues
UPDATE: Thank you for enabling swipe to change pages! I know you’re working on the rest of the items 😀
This is a great resource for people learning bridge. Everything is clearly and concisely explained, and the many many well designed exercises help everything sink in faster. This is by far the best bridge tutorial app on any platform that I have come across!
Some minor quibbles and issues:
1) There is no ability to search. Given this is essentially an interactive book I think the ability to search should be a must!
2) Deals with bidding almost extensively, has a little introduction to Declarer play, but absolutely nothing on defense. Considering you spend 50% of your time at the table defending this is a major oversight. Even a basic chapter on defense fundamentals and opening leads would help a lot.
3) The iPad interface looks exactly the same as the iPhone interface which is not ideal. Would work much better by showing the navigation / table of contents on the left and the lessons on the right.
4) In today’s day and age would be good to have some chapters on 2/1 and the other conventions that go with it.

Thanks for the review! I completely agree with everything you've said :)
After the current lesson I'm working on is done (hopefully by Dec. 20!) I intend to work on some quality of life improvements like swiping pages and aligning elements better on iPhone X. The first lesson in 2020 will definitely be on defense, and 2/1 is likely to come right after that.
Excellent & Comprehensive!
I started learning Bridge about 1-2 years ago, and got the basics down then, but let it lapse and didn’t have an opportunity to play much again until recently.
This app has been a great way to relearn the basics and then even just the Constructive Bidding, Part 1 has really made me a much much better player.
The best part of learning Bridge from an app is that you get lots of practice right there, as you’re learning the concepts, no more having to “ignore” the East West positions (or the dummy before bidding) in a book. The app has a TON of material. There is a lot to learn and LearnBridge gently and repeatedly helps you to learn it and up your game.
Disclaimer: I personally know the developer having met him recently, but I’ve been completely honest with the above feedback.
