Version 5.0.6 of BBO mobile app has just been released.

What's new in this version:
  • App now supports landscape orientation. This will work better on tablets than on small phones.
  • Fixed a bug where it was difficult to play dummy's cards when the "confirm cards" setting was turned on.
  • Fixed a bug affecting player profiles when they would accidentally type a blank space in the login screen before or after their username
  • Other minor bug fixes and improvements.


We are aware there are other features missing or that could be improved. We'll continue to do so in the following weeks and months.

Please post here feedback, comments, suggestions, bug reports.

Thanks - this release seems to have fixed the sporadic connection issues I encountered with the last release on Mobile networks (see http://www.bridgebas...on-mobile-data/)

Thank you for listening to anguished cries about lack of landscape. Well done.

Go into Account -> Settings and enable "Confirm cards".

Thanks. Terrific Android app. I do wish though that I could adjust the audio - - - with the tablet volume controls I cannot turn down, or off, the swishing sounds of the cards being played (in hand diagram mode). Maybe I'm missing something.

Android 6.0, if that matters.

in the new version the time in bbo mobile does not seem quite correct.

bbo web is showing local time (HK time when friend complete challenge)
https://drive.google...iew?usp=sharing

bbo mobile seems showing challenge start time (prefer friend complete time) in US time (?). HK should now be 13 hrs ahead of US but it appears that BBO mobile is using 14 hrs. Unsure if it depends on which state it use.

Above the partnership desk list the number of minutes until the tourney starts and the maximum number of contestants should be displayed. The latter is displayed nowhere right now as far as I can see.

Please specify the conditions under which an auto-logoff is performed while the app is in background or the display is switched off. I like to do something else or at least save energy during the time before a tourney starts as well as the breaks between the rounds of a clocked tourney. Sound will tell me when the action resumes.

In the playing area please remove the button that clears the chat space, or at least locate it farther away from the chat button. I am unable to imagine a valid reason to clear the chat space. OTOH I did accidently hit that button on 2 occasions.

Why doesn't the Android app have an easy way to see the results at other tables?

My friends who use iOS tell me that they have an additional blue button to see the other tables, but I don't have it:

Other tables are only available in the History tab, not in the popup.

When viewing other table results (on Android), and more results come in, the table does not refresh the IMPs properly. I think I clicked in to see the detail of one of these boards, and when I back-arrowed to see the list again, this is what I found:

Great to see the landscape update. Is there any info you can provide as to whether voice commentary is on the short list for future updates? Thanks.

It is on the short list of features we would like to add, but at this point in time we do not have a good way to do it (for technical reasons).

This is a long-standing server issue that affects all the clients I think.
