Solitaire for Android FAQ
Pick a question to see its answer.
If the ads are that much of a problem, we currently have no paid versions of the app for Android. However, other developers offer ad-free alternatives of the game that you can purchase in the Android Market. Nonetheless, we appreciate that you tried our app.
If there is a particular ad that is causing you problems, please send information about the ad to our customer support at Support@MobilityWare.com. Please include a description of the ad (and a screen shot if possible), the type of device you are using, and a detailed description of the problem. Thank you!
Go to the Device Settings, tap Applications, tap Manage applications, and find the application in the list (i.e. Solitaire, FreeCell and Spider), tap to open, then tap the Force Stop button on the application. You may now restart the application from your home screen.
If the Force Stop does not work restart your device by powering it all the way off and then back on.
Sorry that you found some material within our game objectionable. We try to keep our apps free from such material by screening incoming data such as names or messages. Information such as this can be entered by end-users, or imported from a system/service provided by another company (for example, Apple, Facebook, Google, etc.).
However, the systems that we have in-place for screening this data are limited in what they can prevent without preventing many other acceptable names and messages. Just like other companies and their services, we also rely on the community to report objectionable material that may get through our screening process.
If you could provide a screen shot of the occurrence and send it to email@example.com, it would greatly assist our efforts in finding the material you have reported. If you feel the objectionable material has come from a system/service provided to us by another company, you can also report your concerns to that company. For your convenience, there are links to some of their information below.
Thank you for your report and we will do our best to remove this objectionable material from our systems.

Yes. Solitaire can be configured to play a one-card or a three-card draw game. The number of cards delivered from the deck can be adjusted through the Settings menu.
To find all of the settings supported by Solitaire, tap the Settings button on the toolbar. From there, you will be able to access all game related features that can be adjusted to best suit your play style.
No, cross-platform games (games between Android devices and devices that run on a different operating system) are currently unavailable in our app. This version of Solitaire will match you with a random Android-user.
Solitaire should run on devices that run Android 2.1 (Eclair) or later. However, given our current resources, we were unable to test every device that runs these versions of the operating system.This is a list of devices which we have tested and approved for compatibility with Solitaire:
Motorola - Droid X2
Google(HTC) - Nexus One
Google(HTC) - Nexus One
HTC - Evo 4G
LG - Optimus V
HUAWEI - Ascend
Archos - 28
Motorola - Triumph
Samsung - Nexus S
Samsung - Galaxy S 4G
Motorola - Droid
A Random Deal is one that simulates an actual Solitaire game by dealing a player completely random cards. It is possible that games that are dealt in this nature may not be solvable.
Winning Deals are Random Deals that have at least one known solution. It is guaranteed that there is a way to solve these deals, but it is not guaranteed that a player will make the correct series of moves to solve the deal. A Winning Deal is not necessarily an easy one to win.
In addition to the minimum Android requirements, devices must have a screen size large enough to display the minimum functionality of Solitaire. However, no minimum screen size is actually declared because resolution is a factor in whether the app can run or not.
That’s a great question; you must be familiar with our iOS version. This version of Solitaire for Android does include multiplayer gameplay. However, you aren't currently allowed to choose who you play against (players are matched up randomly). To stay informed about any changes we make to multiplayer in the future, you can follow us via Social Media. Thanks!

Press the "Menu" button on your phone. Select "My Apps." Wait for the Market to list the apps you currently have. If there is an update available for one of your apps, it will say "Update" in red on the right side of the screen, across from the name of the app.
Tap on Solitaire if there is an update available for it. Then press the "Update" button.
Press the "OK" button. A warning will appear asking if you are sure you want to update the app. Press the "OK" button within that warning box. Wait for your update to finish downloading; when it finishes, your phone will automatically install the update.
There are some devices that MobilityWare knows will not meet our minimum requirements. To save people frustration, Solitaire will not install on those devices.
