While there are lots of Solitaire games already available on iOS and Android, Microsoft counts its version as the “world’s number 1 Solitaire game” thanks to its loyal following on Windows. You can download the iOS version from Apple’s App Store, or the Android equivalent over at Google’s Play Store.
