I've been using Bridge Baron since it came on a floppy for PC's, and this version since my first smartphone. I do miss the bidding flow charts from the ancient versions, especially since I find patterns have evolved in the years I wasn't paying attention to bridge. This app has a good game play mechanics and solid play. There are a few things that could be better. ... sometimes when I think "huh, how can you get that quick score result " and do a machine replay, I find the program can't get it either.
Fun, but opportunities to allow more features I think this is a fairly good bridge app. However, there are a bunch of features that I think are missing if you're looking to play against the AI. 1) It offers you different levels of bidding systems (SAYC Basic, SAYC Intermediate, SAYC Advanced) but doesn't tell you what the differences are. There's no list of what Intermediate or Advanced introduces. 2) There's no way to choose the conventions you want to use or not use. 3) The "interpret" feature is buggy and often wrong.
User interface is weak When playing a game you can't go back to main menu. I have to exit the app, usually kill the process then restart. Recognizing the back button on the phone would be an easy and useful addition. During game play it would be helpful to click on the bids to get an explanation. I don't always know what system the computer is playing
Whatever happened to the menu? Bridge Baron is a great app & I have spent hours playing the game for many years but for the past four months the 'menu' has stopped working on my Samsung S4. Why? To make any changes in my game I have to exit the game & start again. The enjoyment is gone !!! Please do something about it. It's been a long time now and I feel the fault should have been rectified by now.
Excellent Bridge program Plays very well, and I really like how it plays different systems so you can practice. The 5th star will come when the game is more stable. I have had to install several times because the app would hang on startup and would not start again.
Best Bridge since 2003 I've owned 12 PAID releases of Bridge Baron over the years. I wish I could have gotten 11 of them as upgrades but no such luck. But I have yet to find a better engine whether it be on IOS, Android or Windows version 26!
