Poker Solitaire is my first mobile app. Available, free, for Android on Google Play:
Place cards into the 5x5 grid. Each row, column, and diagonal is scored as a poker hand.
Think strategically, but quickly because you have a limited amount of time!
Higher poker hands give you more points.
Compete against your friends, yourself, or everyone in the world with different high score lists.
Okay, here's the deal. I really don't like when companies track every possible thing so they can data mine and squeeze a few cents out of their customers.
