The basic idea...

"The basic idea behind open source is very simple. When programmers on the Internet can read, redistribute, and modify the source for a piece of software, it evolves. People improve it, people adapt it, people fix bugs. And this can happen at a speed that, if one is used to the slow pace of conventional software development, seems astonishing...
...The Open Source pages exist to make this case to the commercial world."    - Introduction to Open Source -

* SolitaireCG

market download SolitaireCG is an adaptation of Ken Magic's "Solitaire" for devices with few hardware buttons.
Free as in "freedom". Open source, no ads, no permissions required.

Solitaire Card Games include Klondike (regular solitaire), Vegas, Spider, Golf, Freecell, Forty Thieves, TriPeaks, and variations of these games.

Features include multi-level undo, animated card movement, statistics/score tracking, and large card art option.

Key changes against Ken Magic's original include:
- Enable spider dealing with visible deck
- Add hi-res graphics, portrait mode, and tablet support
- Add Baker's Game, Golf, and TriPeaks solitaire games
- Add long press on bottom center of screen for alternate menu
- Add language translations: Esperanto, Finnish, German, Polish
- Add card count and foundation first card visual indicators
- Avoid card loss if spider deal interrupted
- Prevent illegal N+1 multi-card drop on empty stack in Forty Thieves
- Fix Freecell logic for single step move of a valid card sequence
- Add game rules, terminology, README and COPYING to help
- Replace application icon

The changes fix bugs, add games and portrait mode, and enable card dealing and playability in spider. New hi-res graphics have been added to the original card graphics to take advantage of today's larger, higher resolution screens.
