Is it any good?


This Solitaire -- and there are at least half a dozen for the iPhone -- is the best of the bunch. Everyone's guilty pleasure can be played in landscape or portrait modes and with customized backgrounds and card backs -- kids can choose their favorite photo or drawing. Try to beat your last playing time and number of moves, always displayed at the top of the screen.
