Great for playing during the pandemic. A few minor annoyances but actually finding it preferable to shuffling cards and adding up
totals for each round during a regular game.

Fix issue

Enjoy this a lot but they really need to fix that when you discard a card it goes to meld area and then when you move the card to
the discard pile you are penalized 10 points. The tolerances are too small on an I pad to not have this happen fairly often. This
is an easy correction they could make.

Meld problem

When trying to discard to discard pile the card often picked up incorrectly. Even if it is only one card and you undo immediately
it adds 10 points to meld needed to open. Very frustrating as it happens frequently

'We love it but it constantly sends games crashing

'We play a regular game but always one player has server disconnect while our WiFi is good. We need to close everything and start
a new game and lose our previous status, very frustrating as we use one device on messenger to talk and one to play, needs a fix.'

'Ace is not a smart player'

'While I enjoy playing the computer, I get frustrated with my partner. For instance, he picks up the pack toward the end of a hand
when no human would ever do so. Also, she doesn’t always open when she has enough points. Today he kept a 3 in his hand.
Sometimes he puts down only two cards to meld

'Sanity through Covid'

'Canasta Junction has helped with the boredom and frustration of this crisis. Allowing me to play with my friends or to practice
alone. Support has been very responsive. Videos on their home page to assist and updates via their Facebook page often. Worth
the one time fee for sure. And NO annoyin

'Great when you play privately'

'This game has literally saved us in this quarantine. We play with friends and socialize on FaceTime, HouseParty, or Zoom. It is a
great way to socialize and play our favorite game. Thanks so much for creating this game. I have found some issues when playing a

Very unfair

Playing against the computer is very unfair. The cards dealt by the computer are definitely not random.

Needs work

I am grateful this app exists and it is has provided hours of enjoyment during these difficult times. However now that they have
so many subscribers they need to use their funds to fix the bugs and connection issues. I understand that they cannot fix all of
the disconnect issues as some are due to i

Better than nothing I guess?

As others have said, this has been a great way for me to learn Canasta and play with my mom while we are away from each other
during quarantine. However, there are SO MANY GLITCHES. I really wish we could play a live team vs a computer team so that my mom
and I can play together against a computer.

Enjoyable for “social distance” play. However, lots of glitches that need fixing. There are times you cannot move a card from
your hand onto an existing meld. It just won’t stay in the box. This happens a lot with 4’s and 5’s. Very frustrating,
especially when play times out and then a discard i

Issues persist

The 3’s all come up early in the game. Hands have an usually high number of pairs which results in many special hands. The UNDO
function only permits a single UNDO. This is a problem if a user must undo a meld and the picking of the deck I have asked that
these and other issues be addressed. The gam

Love with one exception

Definitely helped during this difficult time. My friends and I play and chat on FaceTime so as close as you can get with out
actually being there in person
However it seems that there are is not enough variety in the hands you are dealt. We have had the same hands many times and know
exactly what is
