Please help me get card games for an Android tablet

My mother has an Asus EeePad Transformer tablet. I'd like to download a bridge game and a solitaire game for it, but as a non-player, I'm finding it difficult to make a choice. On our PC she is using an ancient program called Hoyle which I don't think has been updated in ages.

Free would be nice, but not crucial. My goal is to get something that is uncomplicated but not idiot level.

If you're into Gin Rummy there's a decent app (ad free paid version).

Here's a simple free Solitaire.

Gameloft also makes a bundled Solitaire game that gets generally favorable reviews.

If you like a lot of solitaire games, not just the usuals (Klondike, Spider, Pyramid, etc), you might like this collection of over 250 solitaire games. I play it regularly on my phone, but can't speak to what it would be like on a tablet. That said, it does have ads (no ad-free version I know of), and some people complain (perhaps rightly so) of inconsistent play across games - some games use drag'n'drop, others use double tap, etc.

Solitaire Free Pack (Tesseract Mobile, same people that make the decent Bridge app mentioned by Burhnistan, and there's also a paid version) , Cribbage Pro (it's free if you like Cribbage)

Rummy fight exists as well.

For a free bridge, I've used WeWeWeb Bridge in solo player mode. It's fine for casual play, but the AI bidding rules can occasionally be unexpected, and the AI has some odd quirks.
