Furthermore Funbridge allows you to build upon your knowledge as the app includes Practice Deals, Exclusive Tournaments – that you can create yourself – and commented Tournaments which includes advice from a Bridge champion after each deal played.

Pricing

The basic version of the Funbridge app is absolutely free, but the advanced features which allow unlimited play and challenges are available as a reasonably priced no-commitment subscription starting at £12.99 a month (21st Novemeber 2018)

bridge-baron

The mobile versions of Bridge Baron are based on the best-selling desktop version of the game (available for Mac and PC), so now you can take your favourite computer based bridge game everywhere.

Bridge Baron for iOS and Android allows you to play online with your real life partner and together you can compete against the software’s AI (Artificial Intelligence) or with players from around the world, even foes from rival bridge clubs!

Bridge Baron allows you to play Duplicate Bridge or Contract/Rubber Bridge and has a wealth of other options for you to craft the kind of game play you and your partner enjoy most. It also features seven different bidding systems, so there really are no restrictions to your style of play.

The Bridge Baron Interface

The interface of Bridge Baron is clear and straight forward and has been optimised for both handheld and tablet devices. Perhaps lacking a little of the finesse of Funbridge but more than makes up in functionality and playability.

3. iBridgePlus

ibridgeplus

The third Bridge app in our top 5 is iBridgePlus.This Bridge app unlike the previous two is based around an entirely different concept. When playing Bridge on iBridgePlus you only ever play against Artificial Intellegence (AI), so you don’t need an internet connection, which is ideal for when you’re on the move.

The AI in iBridgePlus is touted as the most advanced Bridge AI available. You play as South and your AI partner is North and opponents east and west. The difference with this bridge app is that you can tweak your partners and opponents bidding styles to simulate a real life situation. Which makes this a brilliant app to train with before your next tournament or club game.

The iBridgePlus Interface

The iBridgePlus interface has been recently overhauled with the latest version allowing full customisation of colours and fonts used in the app, so you can get the playing environment that works best for you. With a bold and pared down user interface, iBridgePlus is easy to navigate and allows quick access to the all customisable features that make this app, as one reviewer put it “Streets ahead of the rest!”

Pricing

iBridgePlus is free to download but offers “in app purchases” which range from a 100 Hand Top Up for £0.99 and a Lifetime Subscription for £13.99 (as of 21st November 2018) The app comes with first class support, so if you run into problems the people at iBridgePlus are more than happy to help out.

Available to play on:

  • iOS (iPhone and iPad)

4. Bridge Doddle

bridge-doddle

This is a slightly different concept to the previous bridge apps we’ve detailed above, as Bridge Doddle is primarily a learning and training aid, from beginners to those seeking to perfect their game.

Bridge Doddle is based around a flashcard metaphor. Each card poses a bridge bidding scenario to which you need to think of an answer, you can then turn the card using a swipe of the finger to see how your answer compares with the preferred answer.

The Bridge Doddle Interface

The Bridge Doddle interface is basic and highly functional, afterall it is replicating a flash card system, so doesn’t require too many bells and whistles. With that in mind it is easy to use, with a tabbed interface that allows access to the most important features of the app.

Pricing

Bridge Doddle is free to download but offers “in app purchases” priced mainly at £10.99. The cost of monthly and annual subscriptions weren’t clear from UK iTunes App store but the American store states $14.99 for a month and $74.99 for a year (as of 11th December 2017)

Available to play on:

  • iOS (iPhone and iPad)
  • Android
  • Amazon Kindle Fire
