FIVE STARS!! - This is a great and very well done game. Lots of game choices, good game options, fun sound effects and terrific art work. So nice that it is free. So far I have not felt the need to make an in-app purchase of extra games, because the selection of free games is so good. Thank you to the developers.
Opens App Store on start - This application now opens the App Store whenever you open it. This is apparently their replacement for the “Reivew Us” nag. Well here’s my review: Don’t open other programs on my computer without my permission!

Smooth playing, many Solitaire variants - Although I mostly stick with Spider, I’ve tried all the games in the Full Deck package and have no complaints about any of them. The instructions are all very clear (though a new style of Solitaire is hard to fully get until you’ve played it). I particularly like that the undo option is readily usable, including with the usual keyboard shortcut, and that you can go back as far as you need to. The stats kept are useful, as well.
Solitaire - Great game, good graphics and nice challenging levels
Enjoy solitaire games - I have enjoyed these games tremendously. It is easy to play these games, although I haven’t tried all of them, yet, but working on it. I especially enjoy Thieves of Egypt and Gaps. They are my favorites at this point. The background is soothing and restful. I turn the sound off, so I do not get distracted. The cards are easy to read. I am not fast at any of the games, but that is OK with me. I just like playing them. I recommend these games for the MAC.
Easy to use - This app allows one to choose many, many solitaire games easily. I find it relaxing when I need a break from other things. It is so easy to learn to use that the relaxation starts when I open the app. Thanks for a user friendly fun solitaire app.
I like Full Deck Solitaire - I like being able to click on a card to move it rather than dragging. I especially like that the system remembers where I was in a game even after I shut it down. I have only a couple of problems with this system. For instance, I don't like the scoring, but I only used it on Canfield and can live without it. A major complaint: I can't make the desk larger, because the cards expand with it. This means that a long array of cards are so cramped together that I can't make them out. Another user likes this feature because he can make the cards bigger, more visible, just by expanding the desk. So I guess it's a toss-up. My only wish for improvement: in Eric's Ultimate Solitaire, pressing a number or letter key highlights all the face-up cards of that rank, facilitating search. This is the closest I've come to Eric's, which for me was the champ. I'd give it 5 stars if I could only read the cards in long arrays.
