From the screenshots it appears to have IAP to buy in game coins that could be used as "cheats." It's solitaire though - how much cheating does one need to do?

Ads that can be removed with IAP. I'll wait to see if they release deluxe version like they did with ninjump. Not making that mistake again.

Perhaps you can answer the question regarding the deluxe version. I like your games and this one seems to be quite polished. Is it going to remain Free/IAP or are you going to release premium priced ad-free version sometime down the track, like you did with ninjump?

It is unlikely that we will release a Deluxe Version in this case, we've done so in the past with games like "NinJump" where we release additional content under a premium version. However here, the game of Solitaire is pretty straightforward so we have embedded the option to buyout ads within the game - as well as other content, you can also earn this through gameplay. In some ways this is an experiment to see if a currency accrual model is applicable (and interesting) to ultra-casual games like solitaire. In addition, we just thought a "best-in-class" product needed to be made with strong graphics, gameplay and effects. Thanks for playing, we hope you enjoy this version.

Thanks for your reply. I will definitely pay to remove ads then (they look especially ugly on 4g devices as they are not optimised for retina displays).

Well, if you can update this solitaire to include Freecell (the only solitaire game I really have any interest in), make it universal, and have it run in both portrait and landscape modes for both devices, then I'll buy it / pay for IAP ad-removal.
I know I've asked for a lot, but I would be willing to pay a handsome price for it.
After all the time that the App-Store has been about, I am *STILL* looking for a decent Freecell app. There are a few Freecell apps around, but they're all diabolical.
