Microsoft Solitaire Collection Comes to Android and iOS

And you thought Office for iPad was big news: Today, Microsoft announced the release of its Solitaire Collection for Android and iOS.

Microsoft Solitaire continues to be one of the most-played games of all time on Windows for more than 25 years,” Microsoft’s Paul Jensen claims. “What’s more, the version of Solitaire you know and love on Windows 10 and Windows 8 PC and mobile devices, Microsoft Solitaire Collection, has reached more than 119 million unique players in the last four years alone! And now, those on iPhone, iPad and Android devices can play the popular card game for free.”

Described by Microsoft as “the world’s most popular Solitaire game,” Microsoft Solitaire Collection provides five variants of the game: FreeCell, Klondike, Pyramid, Spider, and Tripeaks. It also features daily challenges in which you can play solvable challenges every day in all five game modes with multiple levels of difficulty, while earning cool awards, Microsoft says.

The Android and iOS versions of the game also support Xbox Live achievements and gamerscore, plus you can continue games across platforms (Windows, Android, iOS) because game saves are cloud-based. (Xbox Live membership is free.)

Microsoft Solitaire Collection for Android and iOS is free, but ad-based. To celebrate the launch, Microsoft is providing a free trial of Premium Edition (normally $1.99 per month) now through the end of the year.
