Works well on my Samsung phone and tablet. Two issues: I would like to have more information about the conventions used by the App. One feature which I would also like to see is the fixing of contracts, e.g. so that the same hands could be played successively in 3NT or 4H too see the difference.
Online play removed? ETA: Reboot fixed Has the online play feature been removed? The button is still visible on my app, but tapping does nothing. I see that the button is also missing from the screen shots here. Not terribly impressed at the moment, as I really preferred playing with human partners (the AI bidding doesn't have enough customization on the tablet version). [Rebooting fixed the issue!]
Not bad It plays well, but impossible to get to Settings once game started. Only way is to force the app to close then reopen to get to main menu. And when game is over you get score but no easy quick-to-see number of tricks each side made. MVP on laptop better.
A great piece of bridge software All in all a great experience - the only letdown is it can be quite unstable (it generally doesn't survive being backgrounded). If I could wish for something it'd be greater control over the bidding - the basic system we use at my club doesn't quite match any of the presets and options to choose whether or not to use Ogust, Stenberg, Jacoby and Texas transfer, Grand Slam Forcing, etc. would be a huge boon.
Not as good as iPad version I play BB a lot, on my iPad until I smashed the screen and now on my Samsung Tab. For some strange reason, the Android version is missing many of the iPad useful features. Why???
Excellent game play, probably the best on Android (Nexus 5 &7) I'll state straight away that I am a novice to Contract Bridge but like to play whist type games. I've been playing the AI Factory Spades for quite a while but the game play is not strong enough to give an experienced player a real challenge so I was looking for something else. I was hoping to find an app for Solo Whist but didn't find one. Yes, I had been avoiding Bridge but its the only way forward. Initially, the bidding protocols to a novice appears quite daunting but a useful feature of Bridge Baron is the hint button so you can get to the playing the hand. After a while I started picking up how to bid and am now reading a book that explains it. Playing Bridge has come somewhat addictive; I may even have to find some actual people to have a game with! The game is visually appealing with good function, bidding is straight forward and game play is strong. As a novice I thoroughly recommend it along with a suitable book. I am reading "Bridge for Complete Beginners" by Paul Mendelson.
