The BEST iPad Solitaire game has been improved even more.
Pretty Good Solitaire for iPad has been updated to version 1.20, which is now available from the App Store for the incredibly low price of only $9.99 US!
Pretty Good Solitaire Touch Edition now contains 550 games, hundreds more than any other iPad product available. These are the games you have come to know and love on Windows and/or the Mac, playable from the comfort of your recliner. Act now and you will receive an extra 75 bonus games, a total of 625 games, as well as free future upgrades.
In addition to the 50 new solitaire games since the initial release, this upgrade also includes easily selectable favorites, position snapshots, a third card set (Tropical Card Set), and a number of bug fixes to make this app as robust as possible.
Too much honesty…
Just for the readers of my blog, let me lay a little bit of truth on you. The fact is that developing an extensive app like this for the iPad is very time consuming. Additionally, the price on the iPad ($9.99 US) is quite low for such a large collection of solitaire games, and Apple does absolutely nothing to promote updates, even ones like this which add major new features and games. All of these factors are working in combination to jeopardize future work on this project. As much as we LOVE solitaire, we cannot afford to indefinitely invest time and money into a product that does not provide some positive return.
What can you do? In order make sure that PGSTE remains viable, you can help us by spreading the word, linking to this post, following Goodsol on Facebook and sharing posts with your friends, and most of all rating and reviewing the app on the App Store. We have a very loyal core of iPad customers, but if we cannot reach critical mass soon, then we may have no choice but to disappoint them and discontinue the project.
My favorite game in the latest batch is Lower 48, similar to Forty Thieves, which is almost always winnable, but usually quite challenging. I have won all of the first 100 deals (so far).
