All-in-One Solitaire for Windows


Finally, I was able to release a free version of the All-in-One Solitaire game on the Windows Store.
I had a paid version before, a Javascript UWP (Universal Windows Platform) app, which was an OpenFL HTML5 app integrated into the Visual Studio project.
But then starting VS2019 Microsoft dropped support for Javascript UWP projects and… Free version didn’t happen. After some time I removed even paid version because it was getting harder to update it.

Microsoft pushed Javascript developers (at least me) to make PWA (Progressive Web App), which in a nutshell is just a cached website that you open in a slightly modified browser window.
I guess Google started it first with their ChromeOS, all apps are just web applications (websites). It seems like MS is moving in the same direction.
So far, the availability of decent software for ChromeOS is depressing. I use a Chromebook while traveling because it is small, lite, and works 10 hours on a single charge, but finding even a good email client was a problem. Thanks to Android support, I’ve downloaded one from Google Play, but using the “made for touch screen” app on a no-touch screen is an adventure. 🙂

Ok, back to All-in-One Solitaire.
Free version (instead of paid one) is available for Windows 10/11 here:
