As explained in the product description, this version of BBO is quite limited. You can watch selected tables and vugraphs of big matches and you can play with robots. You can't join and play with real people...yet. I played a few hands with the robots and it is easy to use. You can review your result and then look at other tables to see how it was played elsewhere. The robots seem to be excellent defenders.

If you are looking for a handheld bridge game, this works quite well. All bids are explained as you go. I look forward to the next version which supports live play with other people.

11/2/12 update: I just received the updated version and WOW! Now you can play with real people. This means that I can set up a table and reserve seats for my friends. When logged on, they will receive invitations and can click to take their seats.

Bridge Base Online allows bridge players of any level to play either with robots or real people. After each hand you are able to view how your bid and play stacked up with other tables that played the same hand; you can actually drill down to see each trick. Great app!

For a free app, this is good for practice. I like the comparison between tables. I would like an option to keep a rubber score.

I'm sorry, but anyone who is satisfied with this game is just settling for anything that plays bridge.

Here are the problems I came across that will have the app deleted from my account as soon as I finish this review:

1. The graphics are agonizingly slow and jerky
2. The "Total Points" scoring option is just that. It isn't rubber scoring.
3. The "Robot" players bid atrociously. My robot partner often stuck us in ridiculous contracts and made bidding errors to take us out of the best trump suit.
4. The opposing team often underbid obvious game contracts.
5. One reviewer said that the robot players were strong on defense. That's just wrong ... particularly when your partnership is ON defense. LOL
6. The interface is confusing and cludgy.
7. Unlike EVERY competent bridge game, I could find nowhere to set options for conventions.
8. You MUST connect to BBO to even play solo with three robot partners. On my latest attempt to do that I have been waiting for several minutes and it has yet to connect.
9. I haven't been able to find anything to indicate what bidding system/conventions are in use.

Nine strikes is an entire inning full. That's enough for me.

When I first started using this app, it was limited to ONLY playing with robots and kibbitzing at other tables. Recently, they have upgraded the app and you can now play 'til 3AM!!! It works well, but has a long way to go. If you are a bridge player, this is a MUST HAVE app. I am sure it will change, evolve and improve with time. In the meantime it trumps all other android programs out there.

On 3/28/13 Amazon sent out an update to the kindle fire apps...since then, this particular app no longer functions...they are working on a fix.

This was a good app prior to the update.

I am a new bridge player and don't understand many things on this site. but I am taking my time and sitting in on some games to see what it is all about. I really enjoy what little bridge I play. Would like to get with new players to learn a little more. This site is very fascinating because of all it contains

As a 1st time user and mostly a casual player I found BBO an easy to use and friendly environment. Easy to get on a table and non cutthroat players at least in my 1st experience. Highly recommend this app.

If you are new to bridge you will need to have an outside source to learn the abbreviations and some bidding strategy.
