    Card Games Not Random ??

    I have tried 3 different card game apps, the current and better one is 250+ Solitaire Collection... But all three I've tried are clearly not a randomized shuffle... there are patterns of turned cards that emerge over and over.

    Can no one develop a truly random solitaire app?

    All depends on how they implemented the application's shuffling.
    Check out this wikipedia article on computer algorithms for shuffling:
    Fisher

    Then it also depends on where the Random number generator is getting its "randomness" from:
    Random number generation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I don't know how much effort the author of the game you are playing put into shuffling, let's just say it isn't a trivial task.

    Unfortunately, I cannot look up articles for online gambling/shuffling because I am at work. But you could just google it:

    Actually, it's pretty easy. Generate a random "key" for every card, and then do a sort of your choice on the cards. Java comes with a random class which is pretty good for it.
