Pros and cons of Bridge Island app for iPhone and iPad

Bridge Island app good for

Coooool! Very good design and playing experience. Lets hope to have a lot of players soon to find mates any time.
Another week has passed on Bridge Island and still no other humans sited. Will no one wash ashore before my subscription runs out? Must tend to the signal fire.
Need more players Need Robot players to fill in (like gamezone used to do) Ability to play on PC or Mac online Looks like it has potential to be very popular
Great play. Im excited for it to catch on. Stick with it when you do find a live player the play is excellent. And I enjoy playing against the bots as well. Get this app and lets start a great bridge community.
I dont remember how to play...there are no how toos or rules! Thats not helpful! I never want to play with people, just computers so thats not an issue for me, and I have no idea if its better :)
I really like this app. its fun to play some enhance can make this app much better. 1. at the end, an option to replay with a specific bid, and choose N S E W , because some deal is really interesting and worth to play again

Some bad moments

I already have Omar sharif bridge for automated play and was hoping this platform would allow me to play against others. Alas, there is never anybody to play with. In my opinion the app could be salvaged by allowing slow-motion one turn per day play like with scabble. People want to play casually, at their covenience, not wait for "prime time" so they can commit to a long "live" session.
Downloaded. Tried to register but can never get past this screen. Nothing. Hope this can be fixed? The website pictures look nice. Will just keep checking for an update or Im out of $4.99?
I allready own ibridge baron and Omar Sharif. I was looking for some real players bridge game .. Paid the 5$. however I cant get pass the intial splash showing the app is loading then it just turn black!!! the Web Pictures looks nice but there isnt any support on the website.No one to contact and No way to Login. I would rate it 1 star waste of money and time
I downloaded this to play bridge online, because ipad does not support Adobe flash for Bridge Baseline Online. However the screen on this Bridge Island is tiny and there are only robots to play with. It needs to be upgraded to a bigger screen for ipad. Maybe then more real people will sign up to play instead of just robots. I am not real happy with this app. I would rate it 1 star.
iPhone 3G: launch brings up black screen only. Please fix or refund $4.99.
Ive been trying to like this program but it is awful. It freezes in the middle of a hand. You cant get rid of a player who is not making a move. It adds up the tricks before the cards are played. The scoring is completely wrong. Its a waste.
