Solitaire by Mobility Ware

Solitaire has been a popular online game since forever. If you liked playing solitaire (or Patience as it is also called) on your computer, chances are you will probably like it on your smartphone as well. The Solitaire app by MobilityWare offers you the most common form of solitaire: Klondike. You can choose to play single and triple-draw solitaire.

The game itself is fairly simple compared to lots of other games out there: we won’t go too deep into the gameplay and rules of Solitaire in general, but here it is in short: Klondike solitaire is played with a 52-card deck of standard playing cards (no jokers). You have to deal one upturned card (from the pile on the left) and then deal six downturned cards. Now deal an upturned card (on the left-most downturned pile on top of the downturned cards), and downturned cards on all the rest. Repeat until all piles have an upturned card on them. That’s basically it.If you are new to the game, then the “Show Me How to Win” feature is a real plus. This feature shows you how the game you are currently in can be won. If you are really stuck and don’t know how to win this game, this fresh feature helps you learn a new trick or two for future games.

Solitaire app review
It goes without saying that MobilityWare has created a very nice, simple and easy version of this old game for iPhone and android users. Mobilityware has integrated an easy drag-and-drop method to play this game on your Phone or tablet. Just use your finger to move a card and place it into a stack or pile. And it’s available for Blackberry and Windows (Phone) owners as well. It’s not a free app, you can get is for €0,89/ $1 in the Stores. Which we have to admit is a very low price for an app that is frankly very good.

It’s a very good looking solitaire app in which the player has a lot of options to choose from, for example selecting different background colors, or downloading a custom background from your own Photo library. With over 20 custom options for the deck of cards, selectable viewpoints and more, this solitaire game is easy to use, and fun to play, for both experienced solitaire players and beginners.
