Great way to kill time while skipping ads in other apps

Works great on my iPhone 7+ with iOS 11.0.3.

I find a lot of ad based games don’t pause the ads if you bring up the widgets with a swipe down, swipe left. I now play Minesweeper while ads play, then press home button to return to game.

Great game!

Enjoy having a game like this in the notification screen. The more I play it the more I like it. Good job!

I love this!

Such a simple game, made accessible at any time you feel like playing. I hope Apple lets it stay around - they have killed off other interactive widgets.
