Latest News on BriJ Releases / Over 2 million games a month
« on: October 07, 2018, 10:13:29 AM »

Over 2 million games of BriJ now played every month!
That's 70,000 games a day, averaging 1 every second!!

Thanks everyone for your support and feedback

This version introduces 'Tournament Mode'. It lets you play a typical bridge session of 20+ boards to see how your results compare to real player opponents. While you choose to stay in the session,  BriJ shows a running percentage showing your position in that session.

Just like a live game in a club!

the Pro version also adds the Roman Key Card Blackwood 0314 variant as an option to the existing RKCB 1430 variant.

Duplicate Bridge Beginner

It conforms to the EBU "Foundation Level" for Acol bidding and includes the practice hands presented in the EBU BOOK ONE (Beginning Bridge), otherwise known as the Red Book.

The app was launched yesterday on Google Play. It's the first BriJ app to feature a new, improved Play Engine. This engine will be rolled out into other versions of BriJ in a few days as Release 5.0, together with many other improvements.

Microsoft is promising that you'll soon be able to run Android apps on Windows 10:) 

In the meantime there are emulators that some members have mentioned in posts, including BlueStacks.

There are web sites listing other possibilities, e.g.

Another free product I've noticed recently is Nox App Player

Has anyone tried this yet?


Latest News on BriJ Releases / Release 4.13.2
« on: August 15, 2015, 08:55:10 AM »

This release fixes a few teething problems in 4.13:
  • prevention of a (very rare) crash on start-up
  • more changes when playing 3rd before Dummy
  • 'final' fix to vulnerability as it shows in the score sheet
  • better layout for LITE - a smaller Dummy space gives more room in the centre
  • better layout for large tablets in landscape mode: a wider control panel makes it easier to read help, hints and also club download results in the 'aim' tab
