    Is there a way to tell if a game works in airplane mode without buying it first? I don't want to be accessing the internet all the time to play a solitaire game.

    Some might tell you in the discription. You can post the games your interested in here and ask for those who have them to try and play in airplane mode and see what happens.

    I can't imagine that most games would need the Internet in order to play. They may need to download files in order to get started up the first time you start the game, but that's about it. The exception is MMORPG type games which are online by definition.

    I assume solitaire was just a random example, but I can almost assure you that solitaire isn't going to require the net. In fact, I have yet to find a game that is not playable, at least in some form, without internet access.

    When you go to install an app, it will tell you what permissions it needs to run, and one of those permissions would be internet access. Of course, most of the time, that is just for ads, especially on free games.
