We are pleased to announce the launch of the free “BJ Bridge Beginner Acol” version of BriJ for iPhones and iPads on the iTunes App Store. Find it at https://appsto.re/gb/pHqYfb.i .
Like the Android “Duplicate Bridge Beginner” game, available from Google Play and Amazon AppStore, this duplicate bridge game is specially designed for beginners learning the Acol system of bidding. It follows the "Bridge for All" Foundation Level recommended for students by the English Bridge Union (EBU).
As well as offering unlimited random deals, it includes practice hands from the EBU "Red Book". All totally free!
At every stage the game offers hints and advice on bidding and playing the hand. There are automatic links to explain unfamiliar bridge terms, so you should never be left wondering what to do!
Connect up with other players. Practice bidding and playing as a partnership. Play anywhere without Internet access!
New for iPhone / iPad versions: Download a bridge club session and see your results for each board you bid and play, compared directly to players’ results at the club.
News flash! The Pro version will be arriving shortly, extending the features to include total control over your choice of bidding system and conventions. Watch this space!

Our BriJ family of Duplicate Bridge apps now includes a Lite version playing Benji Acol, a Pro version with a wide choice of bidding styles and a recent addition: Duplicate Bridge beginner. The latter follows the EBU bidding as taught to many students in their first year of learning.

Merry Christmas!
