NEW PRETTY GOOD SOLITAIRE v15.20.1 FOR WINDOWS
A new version of Pretty Good Solitaire for Windows is available!
Version 15.20.1 is a maintenance release that fixes or improves a few things:
1) Version 15.20.1 fixes a long standing bug in Penguin and a couple of other related games that affected a small number of users.
2) Version 15.20.1 makes some improvements in the look and feel of the game for Windows 10. In particular, it changes the default main menu colors to look similar to what the default colors were back in the Windows XP era. It will not change the colors for anyone who has changed the menu colors by clicking on the Options button, Main Menu area, it only changes the defaults for people who have not changed the colors or for new installations.

IOS 9 AND OUR IPAD GAMES
Apple recently released iOS 9, the latest version of the operating system for iPhones and iPads. For most people, our games worked fine on iOS 9. Unfortunately, there is a bug in iOS 9 that only affects our games on 4th generation iPads (they work fine on earlier iPads like the iPad 1, 2, or 3, and they work fine on later iPads such as the iPad Air).
It took a while for us to figure out exactly what was happening with the games on these iPads and to find a way around the problem. We have submitted an update to Pretty Good Solitaire for iPad and it is now waiting to be approved by Apple. Look for updates for all 5 of our iPad apps to appear in the App Store over the next week, starting with Pretty Good Solitaire and then the other apps will follow.
There is more about this on our blog at http://blog.goodsol.com/2015/09/ios-9-and-our-ipad-games.html
