Cookie Bonus Solitare - FREE

It's basically the solitaire we all know and love with a point system, a handful of useful "cheats", and a chat room to talk with friends!

I love the game and was debating if I should spend the 6 dollars for it when I can play the web based version for free.

Looks like I don't have to worry about because it's up on the app store for free!

I checked on my iphone and it only has the 5.99 version available, which also happens to have a LOWER version than this free version

I'm backing up and installing now. impressions in a bit

Damn it!

Looks like this is the full version of the game... but Ad Supported =/

I loaded it up and was asked if I wanted to "get the look" from Jc Penny...

*sighs heavily*

This is what I get for being poor

So what are your thoughts?

6 bucks for a few ads?

I'm not a big fan of solitaire myself... but i think putting up with ads is probably the better way to go then dropping $6 but just remove them

so after a short time with the game... about 6 hours or so...

I can say without a doubt that this game is amazing. Moreso than the original webapp.

the ad only appears when starting a new run so if you are good at the game you rarely see it.

The chat room runs much smoother and the people in there are wonderful.

oh, did I mention achievements? Yeah, good good stuff.

For the price you can't beat it. The ads show up in between every game you play and only last for a couple seconds. Didn't bother me at all.

This is a remarkably full featured game given what they're charging for it.

The one big problem with this game - and never mind whether it's free or is ad-supported - is that you can't see what suit any of the cards are unless they're on the top of the pile. Sure, I can see whether it's red or black, but I can't see whether it's hearts or diamonds, or whether it's spades or clubs... And that makes for poor gameplay.
