Currently available for free through the iTunes Store, Best Gin Rummy provides hours of entertainment for any fan of gin rummy.
Just like its name states, this app claims to feature the best gin rummy interface for iOS games currently on the market today, and we really can’t argue.
Featuring a classic gin rummy “card table” as its main interface, players in this app actually play against a computerized opponent. The level of skill of this “opponent” can be chosen from three different levels of difficulty, allowing gin rummy players of all skill levels to enjoy the app.
Additionally, first time players of gin rummy will also definitely benefit from the well written “FAQ” section of the app; this section helps to explain the intricacies of gin rummy in a simplified fashion.
While some players might desire the option to play against an actual “real life” opponent (through the internet), I found the challenge provided by Best Gin Rummy’s AI opponent to be perfect.
Finally, this app actually features the opportunity for players to win prizes through monthly contests. Specifically speaking, the top player for the month is awarded an Amazon gift card, and two other players are also selected at random to receive some smaller prizes.
While gin rummy is itself a fun game for dedicated fans, this extra prize incentive definitely still provides additional appeal to using this particular app to play it.
Appearance and Layout:
As previously mentioned, Best Gin Rummy features a simple, classic card game user interface (as would be expected for a game of its type). The card designs are simple but still visually appealing, and while some players might think it fun to have the option to change the appearance of the cards in the decks, this feature probably isn’t really necessary for the game.
Best Gin Rummy features an easy to navigate layout as well, leaving players with no room for confusion when finding their ways around the app.
Best Gin Rummy can be downloaded for free through the iTunes Store.
Overall, Best Gin Rummy is an excellent addition to any card game fan’s iOS app library.
While a bit challenging for first timers to learn, the game can quickly become a favorite with a little bit of practice.
Best Gin Rummy’s layout is perfectly user friendly, and the app definitely offers a high replay value. The monthly contests are also a fun incentive to get players to play gin rummy more often as well.
