Every day, TriplePoint client AppGratis hand-picks an app that they think you ought to have. They feel strongly enough about the app to make it free for a day. We download and check out what’s on offer — because it’s free.
Welcome to another instance of “exactly what you think it means!” Today’s free app, Card Games, is… come on, now, say it with me: an app with card games in it. Three, to be specific: Klondike, Spider, and Freecell solitaire. Tap, drag, hunt for the aces, alternate the colors (or match them, depending); it plays exactly like you think it does, and works just like it should. It’s the way you’ve been secretly wasting time at work for years, except now you have it with you everywhere!
There’s always room for tried-and-true classics in app form, but Card Games goes a few extra steps through an accessible UI, a unique scoring system, and a stat tracker. The play is smooth and intuitive, allowing for dragging or tapping, and comes with options to enlarge the cards if you have difficulty reading them. Plus, instead of being time-based, the scoring is based entirely on the number of moves you have to make, encouraging you to reflect and take your time.
There is a rush to go out and grab Card Games, though, since it’s only free for today. Go to it!
