4/5 stars
Great game, horrible partner!

Nice interface, simple and realistic (who needs animations?)
Intelligent, tough AI (at least the opponents)
Customizable themes and RULES!
Agreements are nice (but lacking)
Scoring is accurate, no bugs
Rewind button if you touch the wrong card accidentally (but this doesn't happen too much)
Advice button (for novices only)
History screen (mostly to figure out what your partner was THINKING when he called that...)
Only one glitch
Remembers game after exiting

Partner is a moron with calling (I've had R,L,A,K,Q of hearts and he calls clubs with L,10...) especially when you/he dealt
Partner is a moron with leading (Has led 9,10,Q of trump multiple times)
Opponents always seem to be short-suited (maybe I'm biased)
Advice button gives bad advice (I've tried following it and have been Euche'd, tried against it and have won)
--GLITCH of when it's your turn to play a card, accidentally shaking the device causes the hand to be skipped - has restarted GAME on occasion--
Card spread makes selection slightly difficult (but rewind button solves it)

Great game if you're willing to deal with an incompetent partner.

Remove the shaking "feature"/make it optional at least!
Add more-specific agreements about calling (who dealt, what's been turned down & buried, do you have MORE THAN TWO NON-BOWERS?)
Add optional "bottoms/farmers" rule
Add landscape mode feature

There probably isn't any good way to implement these, but stacking the deck, cutting, stealing the deal, table talking, looking at eachothers' hands, and reneging are all part of the game where I play. Please don't try to include them in the game, but I think that since this is such a good simulation to teach the "kosher" way to play, novices should learn how to use the "cheats" that are accepted in person.

4/5 stars
Doesn't cheat

The program plays well, but the interface is a bit dodgy. This is the only application I'm aware of that not only doesn't have a landscape mode, but won't even rotate the display 180 degrees. The cards and buttons are smaller than they need to be--the extra real estate on the iPad isn't well used. But if the quality of the play is the issue, you'll soon forgive the klunkiness.

The AI doesn't cheat, but because it plays differently than human players do, it can sometimes seem that way. Another reviewer concluded that the program was cheating based on a single hand in which the AI did something he didn't understand. If he'd thought, for a moment, about the hand, he might have learned something.

At many game scores, many of the hands that are properly made "alone" are lacking a single control--either one of the bowers, or an ace in a side suit covered by a king (or, of course, missing no control at all). If the missing control is one of the bowers (or if the maker is not missing any control), the opening lead doesn't matter, so you don't worry about those hands when choosing a lead. Leading a singleton King insures that you won't find the suit with the missing ace, so you should lead something else. That the lead in this particular hand succeeded by finding partner's void rather than the missing ace simply makes the logic of the lead harder to see.

Now, I'm not very good a euchre, and I didn't realize this until I started thinking about the problem. But then if I thought that euchre was a game in which a simple rule like "always lead your highest non-trump" was optimal, I doubt that I'd be playing euchre in the first place.

If you're not interested in playing euchre well, I suggest you choose a stupider program. But if your play well, or if you want to play well, this is the one for you.

Edit: Forget everything written in the product discription, the AI is tough because the AI cheats!!!!

Here's the hand in question. I was the dealer. I had J-Spades, 10 Clubs, Q Hearts, 10 Hearts, A Diamonds. J Clubs was face up on the table. I pick it up and discard the 10 Hearts. Opponent had the following hand: K Diamonds, 9 Clubs, A Clubs, J Hearts, 10 Spades. He leads with the K Diamonds (obviously the best choice for the opponent to lead) which I win with the A Diamonds. I then take the next 3 tricks with trump, and finish with the Q Hearts (opponents had nothing but Spades left, and my partnet takes the trick with the A Hearts). Great! We get 2 points. I notice that I would have won all the tricks going alone. So I cheat and go back and go alone. This time, the opponent leads with the Jack of Hearts instead of the King of Diamonds. That move makes no sense. You want to take one trick to prevent your opponent from getting them all and getting 4 points. So, you should lead with your stongest non trump. That would be the King of Diamonds. There is too great of a possibility that I would be able to trump of play a higher Heart to play the Jack when you have a non trump king in your hand. The ONLY reason I can think of to play the Jack of Hearts is because the AI knew that his partner had to hearts and could trump, and that I had hearts and could not. So, with this lead, I only get 4 tricks and 1 point.

If anyone can explain a valid strategy as to why the defenders would play a non trump King during normal play, and a non trump Jack when defending a lone player, please explain it to me. But, the only way this stategy works in my mind, is that the AI looked at the other hands before leading.

This isn't a good strong AI, it just cheats. What a joke.

Original Review:
For starters, the "Regular" price of $19.99 for one card game is insane. I picked this up on "Sale" for $4.99 (which is still overpriced).

The good: a good AI with lots of partner presets. This alone should make it worth the $5.

The Bad:
-Should have a difficulty level. Presets don't affected level of difficulty. An AI for an app of this pricepoint should work well for novices and veterans.
-Graphics are awful. Looks like an upscated iphone version. Lots of sceen space on the ipad-make use of it. More card graphics and options needed. Some animation and BASIC sound effects (look at almost any card app to see what I'm talking about. Enhanced graphics to show who is winning/won the trick and whose lead.
-No landscape mode?? On a $20 card app? Seriously???

Unfortunately, some basic and simple things (graphics, sounds, animation, landscape mode) are putting me off from a game that clearly has a great AI. These are things that should be fixable pretty easily. An adjustable level of difficulty is also critical.

Pity, I love Euchre and would love a great app, but I still haven't found one...
