Card Shark Collection Deluxe is an app for solitaire enthusiasts. I was a big fan of the 4 deck version of Spider Solitaire on my desktop computer. Since an iPad is a comfortable way to play solitaire games, I began seeking a good version of Spider Solitaire. I tried several apps and then I discovered Card Shark. This is an app with a multitude of Solitaire games including Spider Solitaire. The first thing that impressed me is the ease of moving the cards. It is very quick and smooth. I was also pleased with the features and variety of solitaire games.
Card Shark Collection Deluxe has over 70 different solitaire games including the 1, 2 and 4 deck version of Spider Solitaire and 1, 2 and 4 deck versions of Spiderette which is a smaller version of Spider Solitaire that is quicker to play. When you start Card Shark, it remembers the last place you were. This is an opening screen of the 4 deck version of Spider Solitaire.
