Android App Tablet Review: Gin Rummy

by Marty Gabel

Gin Rummy is a card game that has entertained generations, and it’s now available to enjoy on your Android tablet without even having to shuffle the pack.

If you’ve never played it before, don’t worry, easy to follow instructions are offered within the app and there’s even a handy section about strategy. The game is about forming sets and runs known as ‘melds’ and trying to complete your hand before your opponent does. It’s a simple game to pick up but not easy to master, which means this app should keep most fans of the game happy.

The app works well on the tablet with large, colorful graphics optimized for Honeycomb. There’s a number of difficulty levels, three different game types, and the app even keeps track of your stats.

Overall, this is a slickly presented game that offers a challenging game of Gin Rummy and it doesn’t cost a penny to enjoy.
