    By far the best! I have tried several different spade apps and this is by far the best. There are actually options to make the cards flow faster and other changes you can make. You don't have to double click on the cards to make them play and your partner actually knows how to play which is rare on this game. This app doesn't quit unexpectedly. The only gripe I have is that since I installed it on my new phone there isn't a button during game play that will let u end the game b4 it's over. But other than that it's awesome!! Full Review

    Rigged Deals Two-three nil/10 for 200 hands every time now n partners 500. I never see these stats n any other spade apps. Please make real again. Strategy is part of 500. Might as well play turbo-4 hands. Seriously gonna quit this site n i have used it solidly for over one year. Stop rigging the deals. Full Review

    Online needs work I consistently have had the computer take over my hand due to the game not registering my bid. Also my hand with showed up jumbled due to several different animation glitches. *Update: Functionality for s6 edge is lacking. Long hold does not activate menu anymore. Looks like no more talking, or ending AI games for me, thanks Full Review

    Worst addictive game ever I have never played a game so geared towards you losing. Computer partner sucks, and you only average 1-3 spades per hand. And if you get lucky and get 3 your partner has less or will pull your 3. Game sucks bad! Just good tempo compared to comp games Full Review

    Big Joker, lil joker, ace, king no 2D/2H It would be the best spades game, but the fact that at a minimum of once a week you cannot log on just keeps loading. It'd be nice to say more like the last guy said instead of thanks, nice play good luck yes and no. How about knowing who your partner is. Or have an actual sign in instead of playing as anon (without logging in with Facebook or google) there are no stats, and how about adding the option to play whatever suit you feel and if you get caught renigging u lose your books. How about adding jokers? Full Review

    Why is the AI partner so stupid? Seriously...why? They either over or under bid, save big spades causing excessive bags or incessantly cut you during play -subsequently- causing you to be set. Also, AI team in partners ALWAYS gets awesome hands and constantly over or under bids as well. Wth?!?! Full Review

    JMK Published date: December 13, 2016

    Its ok I like the set up but when playing computer mode the partner sabotages the hand. Also the computer cheats because if i take a risk in going low and have 3 of a certain suit that can set me the computer immediately goes after that suit every time. Which means the computer is cheating. How is that fair??? And for that i give only 3 stars Full Review

I've been playing this spades for over 2 yrs and now because of this connection issue I will be uninstalling this app and finding a new one. Smh Full Review

    Worst spades game ever Whomever programmed this doesn't know what they're doing. I would hate to be their partner in spades because they don't know how to play the game! I had to give it one star just to write this opinion. It deserves 0 stars. Full Review

    LOUD ADS!!! All I wanted to do was play a quiet game of spades while in a waiting room. What do I get? Scared to death by The Loudest Trumpeting horn section in an ad ever. I understand ads are how you make your money, but that was unexpected and uncalled for. Keep it simple please. D***! Full Review

    Ads have gotten ridiculous. Now have to disable internet before starting a new game or I get a pop over ad for another game every time. The ads below the game were fine, but these forced pop overs with sound are too much. Please offer a paid version of the app. Full Review

    My favorite way to play is without teams. This is one of the few apps that can play without them. The only thing that I don't like is the AI is all against the human, going all out to cause you to lose points at their own expense. Full Review

    Don't Waste Your Time (Attention Advertisers) The inconsistencies of my computer "partner" in its bidding strategies, the over trumping when unnecessary, always "bleeding" trump (even when unnecessary), and general "brain dead" playing, coupled with inconceivable "luck" of the double computer team makes this a you vs 3 computer opponent game. I've complained before to the developer without answer. Ad men, don't bother spending $ here if you're looking to reach thinking, logical and knowledgeable spenders. We'll be elsewhere. Sorry! Deleting shortly. Full Review

    I've given up on this being a fair game. My "partner" routinely throws off on hands, forcing the loss, or will bid 8 and take 4. I've been a Spades player for more than 25 years, and am amazed that I know how to play better than the app! Full Review

    Can someone tell me why it won't let me sign in . It happens at least 3 times a month. I have posted questions on this for the last 2 years and never got a response from anybody that works on the game horrible customer service. I recommend finding a different spades game and playing that where you can get some customer service .game is down and has been for 24 hours 1-30-18 Full Review

    Michile-Beasley Can't restart the game once a game is started sooo ridiculous. You choose to play with partner the computer always under bis, gets to many bags, or cuts your books when there was no need. NEEDS TO GET BETTER SHUFFLING!!!! This game used to be fun so much to where I'd be on it for hours now I barely get past the 1st game. I'd really like an update please? I'd really like to know if you can get this game fixed please???? Full Review

    Would've got 5 stars, but the menu during game play to restart game has disappeared. Can't start a fresh game anymore. That's my only issue, great otherwise. Except for your computer partner screwing you every so often. Full Review

    Watch how in the middle of a game you'll lose connection, then whatever strategy you were working is now dead! Fux the admin/ update unable to connect to server? Wtf, admin you're aazzhat clown. GTFOH update this app is the worst! Unfortunately there is no zero star button, otherwise this app would most definitely be deserving of zero stars! 3/26/17 next update with the ads and garbage players, this is definitely the worst app around!!!!

    Crashes a lot since update I use to love this game. Since updates to many pop up ads while game is progress and now freezes a lot more, and crashes. I had this game for a couple of years. I use to play this game every day. I now will be uninstalling it. Full Review

    Partner AI is sometimes very dumb, but unlike other spades games this one offers an option to play solo. Really nice feature, especially in light of the partner AI. Latest update really changed to interface. I'm sure I'll get used to it, but I do not like it at first. Full Review

    Loved (past tense) this game Addictive I love the option to play cut throat all I play is cut throat fk a team member, however there are waaaaaaay too many ads it's ridiculous and now with the last update I can't even find the settings button. All good things come to an end. Not worth the download anymore. Full Review

    To many quitters, it would stop a lot of the quitters if you made people login because most people want to keep their ratings as high as possible. Some people quit just because they have a hair up their butt. There's table talk like "I bid nil". And you loose if other team bids 10 which is easy when oops bid nil and his partner bids 1 or 2 tricks. I've seen poor losers bid 13 and his partner bids 1 making it 14 while oops have bid 5 or more bid. There should be a average rating system & photos for players Full Review

    Ads play sound Always I play frequently when my phone is set to vibrate, and the ads still play sound really loudly. That is very embarrassing in a public quiet place when you expect your phone to be quiet. The game itself is fun. Your partner AI isn't great, makes some stupid choices, but isn't horrible.

    On average love it ZTE overture 2 has the same glitch reported below by Chelsea Mott. No 3 dot menu button. Chat desperately needs a we/they bid 10 for 200 option. Because lots of people suck at math or don't seem to notice that in the game rules. Full Review

    I Couldn't Uninstall This Fast Enough I have absolutely no issues with the "free" versions of games/apps having advertisements, but I do have an issue when they're obnoxiously annoying. With all sound options turned off in the game, the ads come blaring in at full volume, very "user unfriendly". Full Review

    I've never played a game where there are four sides competing to win but three of those sides collude to screw you from winning at the cost of the other sides losing. Too many times I've played cutthroat where the other cpus all turn against me in a hand where there's no benefit in it for them besides seeing me lose. It's annoying as hell. Full Review

    Cadabra Abra Published date: September 21, 2016

    Could be best spades game but.. I NEVER write reviews unless something is exceptionally good or unbelievably horrible. I didnt rate this game 2 stars because of the fact that too often online play is not available for days at a time or the fact that chat has been removed or not available on some phones making you seem rude when your partner says "nice play". But for the simple fact that Ive emailed developers 3 TIMES with questions/concerns regarding those very issues and have gotten NOT ONE reply. Seems as though they could care less!!! Full Review
