*** PLEASE NOTE ***
This product is the older version of Bridge and has a few less features and weaker game play than Omar Sharif Bridge 3. We recommend you check the new version before any purchase as Android Market does not facilitate upgrading from this version.
For those new to the product:
Omar Sharif Bridge could be the perfect game. Its ease of play marks it out as a firm favourite for casual gamers, whilst the huge depth of strategy and vast intricacies involved allow it to be a game that can be studied by the most serious card student.
Bridge is played by four players who form two partnerships. Players within a partnership face each other across the bridge table. Traditionally, the players are referred to by the points of the compass - North, East, South and West. The two partnerships are North/South and East/West. Games are played to the best of three. The winner is said to have won the "rubber". A game ends when one partnership scores 100 or more points below the line.
Featuring ACOL and Standard American bidding systems, Omar Sharif Bridge will challenge the most proficient player yet still allow the beginner to develop their game. Fantastic graphics and a strong and respected bridge engine allows players to become involved, stimulated and challenged with every deal.

That was fast! Current update is much improved. I like the settings for conventions.
Although this game was paid for and installed i could never get it to load
No help with slow buggy UI.
Addictive and good for whiling away commute. Standard similar to my local bridge club, with the occasional odd bidding and play livening things up.
Would like option for weak 2 bidding. Defense play not very good. Just ok for advanced players.
Can undo on Desire. Back button. Then select position to replay from. Apart from bidding not bad. Runs my handset quite hot though.
Not a great bridge program but better than nothing. Lack of an undo facility is frustrating as it is too easy to fat finger the touch screen.
It's a testament to how much I love bridge that I use this app. It continues to be buggy, sluggish and poorly designed with no updates ever.
OK. Would love undo feature to end fat finger issues. Would also love a replay option to allow a duplicate type of review & replay hands. LSR
Some buttons at the bottom of the screen don't work on my hero but the app is still playable.
