Not enough puzzles for a monthly subscription
by JChachS on 2020/05/24 05:49
The old app was so much better. You could also reset all puzzles. After you finish all of the categories, you’re paying $3.99 a month for one daily puzzle. Also, you have to constantly turn your tablet since the pictures are both horizontal and vertical. Not worth it. 😔
App keeps crashing
by Dre.W. on 2020/05/22 03:10
The puzzles are fun but I’ve gotten to the point where the app keeps crashing. I can’t even open it anymore. Very disappointing for an app you have to pay for. Don’t buy.
Great, but keeps crashing
by JPJPJP7728 on 2020/05/22 00:00
This app is great, I love it. But it’s now crashing and won’t open every time I try to open it. This happened before and I had to delete it and reinstall it, but it deleted all my data. I don’t want to have to do that again. Please fix whatever bug is making it continue to crash every time it gets opened.
Love it but...
by Celivega on 2020/05/20 12:48
I just updated OS and app won’t open anymore. So bummed!! Love this app.
Great old game
by AlishiaMD on 2020/05/19 02:48
So I’ve got three stars on all of them but now I’m done with all the ones given. Will highlights be coming out with more hidden puzzles for this app? I don’t want to keep paying for nothing new...
Fix it
by Nionat on 2020/05/19 02:47
The app keeps going off as soon as it starts opening
Hidden objects
by 6xzwinston on 2020/05/19 01:54
Love the game even as an adult. But it does keep crashing. If they can come up with such picture games they could at least fix the crashing problem. You have to delete game the reinstall and sometimes it lets you sign into your account other times it doesn’t. If you pay for a year you should be able to play without it crashing every other week! Please fix this game
Good but clashes a lot
by dknight87 on 2020/05/17 07:10
I love the game dnt get me wrong but I haven’t been able to play in 3 days now it well open Nd instantly close out I’m payin my money for an app that won’t open Nd clashes this is outrageous Nd unacceptable
Crashes immediately
by queenpuzzlequeen on 2020/05/16 23:07
Game worked for a week or two but now immediately crashes.
Very Unhappy!
by emb4705 on 2020/05/16 03:28
I love the puzzles, was excited to download the app and happy to pay the annual subscription fee. But I’ve had the app for only a couple of weeks and this is the fourth time it’s crashed. Every time it gets to a certain number of new puzzles it crashes and I have to delete the app and re-install. I lose all of those puzzles and end up re-doing the same puzzles from scratch again and again. Enough already! There are enough of the same complaints being written - why can’t you fix this problem? This would be 5 stars plus, but I have to rate it a zero because of the constant crash problem. Please fix it so I can keep playing.
Would be great if it was free.
by userrr11 on 2020/05/15 16:23
Have to pay for everything.
Not worth the money
by Lcriner on 2020/05/14 00:36
This game does not save progress I’ve played the same levels so many different times that I’m over it, it does not open levels after the stars are reached and when it does and u exit out you have to start all over again. I’m over it this is very frustrating and a complete waste of time and my day.
Glitch
by Rese7 on 2020/05/14 00:10
I Love this game but every time I get past a certain level it freezes and stops working. I then have to delete it and re download it and my progress is never saved! Ugh.....
Great for a grandma too!
by Queens2 on 2020/05/12 19:19
All ages can enjoy!
Love it but it keeps crashing
by Flippurss on 2020/05/10 02:40
My wife and I play this game every night and we always get to turtles then the app crashes and we can’t even open it up again. I even got a new phone and still doesn’t work. It’s disappointing cause as I said it’s was a nightly ritual for us. I’m just going to stop subscription and maybe find another game. Other than that the game was really fun.
Great game but not worth paying for!
by SplashQueen612 on 2020/05/06 03:30
I enjoyed Highlights magazine throughout my childhood so I didn’t hesitate to subscribe to play this game. It was great at first but now it continues to crash. When I delete the app and download it again, all of my progress is gone. Even if I sign in, my progress is not there. I don’t like having to redo the same pictures over and over. If I’m paying for something, I expect acceptable quality. There are also a few boards with glitches where the item isn’t even visible in the picture unless you use the hint button, then it magically appears on the screen. Good app, needs work, not worth paying for. I’m deleting for good since it crashed again for the 3rd time and didn’t save anything.
Poor customer support
by racerdad55 on 2020/05/04 21:14
I purchased the online app. But I cannot log into the website because it asks for a customer number that is found on a magazine mailing label. I don’t have a magazine mailing label because I don’t have a magazine! I can’t get through the customer support page. It tells me I already have an active chat session, but I don’t! 😕
Bugs
by kelly7164 on 2020/05/04 01:32
I bought a subscription for a year on 4/10/20. We went through a bunch of puzzles and the app crashed. I reloaded and at about the same amount of puzzles completed it crashed again. I canceled my subscription but it would be nice to get my money refunded.
App Glitches
by High_PointThreat on 2020/05/02 07:43
This app glitches more than ever! My child would complete one board and it would glitch and erase all of her progress. She finally reached “I guess” the end of the board and it glitched closed out and we are still unable to reopen app. I’ve already emailed a complaint in the past, and now it’s to the point where I just want to be reimbursed. Im definitely canceling my subscription.
Crashes
by Jcornell13 on 2020/05/01 10:37
Was working well until yesterday when it started crashing on the blue screen.
Wish it would work
by bBQ Mkb on 2020/04/29 12:25
I enjoyed this game for about 5 weeks. Ultimately canceled because it kept kicking me out.
Keeps crashing
by Mackeroninpeyt on 2020/04/27 03:49
This will be the third time the game has crashed after reaching a certain level. I paid $30.00 just barely a few weeks ago! Is this the ploy? Please help me and fix the problem or I would like a refund. Thank you. This frustration only adds to the quarantine nightmare we are all living.
I agree fun and frustrating
by kploveshermjs on 2020/04/26 20:03
I agree with others who have commented. Myself and my 7 year old love playing this app unfortunately the app will just stop working after awhile. I have reinstalled this app twice and each time it will work very well and then all of a sudden you can’t get back in the app. Seems like this is a problem that’s been going on for a while and hasn’t been fixed. I have canceled my subscription but will check back at another time to see if they have figured out the glitch. The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is because of the glitch.
Garbage. Just trying to sell subscription $$
by schmanke on 2020/04/26 14:57
Don't waste your time unless you are looking to spend money
Frustrating!
by matthewtoo on 2020/04/26 09:07
I paid for the annual subscription and the app just crashes when I try to open it.
Crashing
by shawn7810 on 2020/04/22 19:56
I love the app, but it continues to crash. It acts like it’s loading, but it never does. The app just closes. I turned my iPad off and back on again, but that didn’t work. I checked to make sure the app was up to date and it is...
Bunch of thieves
by nickname9765789 on 2020/04/22 19:00
Had this app on two different iPads (mine and my wife’s) for our two kids. Worked no problem. After updating, can only play on my wife’s iPad since she is the one who bought the subscription. If my other child wants to play, it would cost an additional 30 dollars for the year. Bogus that you can family share the app but not the subscription. Complete rip off to pay 60 dollars for two kids to play. Completely not worth it. And now you’ve ruined my kids day during quarantine. Thanks Highlights!
App
by good but very frutrating 2020 on 2020/04/22 18:59
I really like the app but it locks up and won’t let me back in. If I reinstall the app it doesn’t save my levels. Shouldn’t happen on an app you’re paying for.
I hate highlights
by Bennie's review on 2020/04/22 16:08
When you do The challenge when you find all of them it says you didn’t find One of them.
Great game
by Gymnastics 17 on 2020/04/20 18:56
I played all the puzzles and wondered if they add more or once you finish that’s it.
Awesome Game
by Ashleigh1108 on 2020/04/19 14:31
I absolutely love this game. It’s so relaxing to play. I love completing one category and getting surprised with the next category. I would have rated this app a 5 but after the recent update, the app will not open on my phone.
Screen size
by rlo1234567890 on 2020/04/15 23:01
Not compatible with the screen size of the iPhone 11 so you can’t see everything that’s supposed to be on the screen
Keeps crashing
by marirsmmeri on 2020/04/15 21:36
App has been crashing for a few weeks now. It isn’t allowing me to log into my account, which I paid for the whole year.
LOVE IT!
by Boboatea1969 on 2020/04/14 20:28
I love puzzles and the price is reasonable. And they have a lot of puzzles 🧩.
Screen cuts off
by aileen5798 on 2020/04/12 23:17
It’s hard to see what objects I need to find and what they look like because it cuts off the screen on the IPhone 11. Someone needs to fix this if they have us paying subscription for puzzles. Plus if you don’t buy the subscription you can only do one small puzzle every 5-6 hours!
Brings me back to my childhood!
by Andreajyn on 2020/04/12 21:45
I loved seeing these on the magazine as a kid, now I have it on my phone! Good way to pass the time!
Money money money
by Suagismybias93 on 2020/04/12 18:31
This game would be fantastic if it didn't make you pay. Like you can only do ONE puzzle and then if you want to do more you have to pay and paying for a child's puzzle game is ridiculous. Also I could literally find worksheets of this and print it out with my printer. It's the same result except free soooooo.

Keeps Crashing
by Dlaing on 2020/04/09 23:01
This use to work fine. But now it tries to open, H with circle starts then it crashes. I subscribed through your web site but if this continues i will have to cancel. Tried deleating and reinstalling but I’m not going to keep doing this.
So not good👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼
by Bellzella on 2020/04/09 15:44
This game is so not good because all of the other puzzles are locked. Can you please unlock all the puzzles without even typing my dad’s password. If you don’t I will delete the app.
Best Game Ever!!!!!
by xoMissDiorxo on 2020/04/09 11:18
This is the BEST game of ALL the game apps that I’ve ever played! I’m so addicted! This Hidden Puzzle Game was made so well! The items are so cleverly hidden in the awesome art work. I only found this game app through my son’s hidden puzzle book & thought I’d give it a try since we have so much fun finding the hidden puzzles together. It’s really a FUN game for all ages. So worth the prescription. I would really recommend it & I never right reviews but it’s just so good that I had let people know.
Subscription
by tleigh26810 on 2020/04/09 03:07
I paid 29.99 and cannot open other puzzles. I can only play one game per day.
It keeps crashing
by Knockette on 2020/03/27 15:58
Great game! Takes me back to my younger days but it has consistently been crashing for 5 days now... It won’t load up at all ...maybe It’s a sign I should stop paying for something that won’t work.
Fun game, but better without it crashing
by crystal2blessed on 2020/03/25 03:52
I have deleted and installed this app over six times, playing the same games over and over. Every time I reach a certain level, it crashes. 😡
Very entertaining
by Habanation on 2020/03/21 19:20
If u are in someplace waiting ...this app can help
Game keeps crashing!!
by Kendra bray on 2020/03/21 17:55
The only thing that I don’t like about this game is that it keeps crashing! I mean why charge people for this app if it is not gonna work properly. Definitely thinking about ending my subscription
Glitchy app
by Msvoy on 2020/03/17 12:44
This app is very glitchy. Deleted.
Fun Game
by kkay6 on 2020/03/17 03:44
I love this game! I have beat all 125 puzzles. I would like more puzzles to become available soon or I will unsubscribe because there’s no point on paying for a game I have beat!
App Crashes
by MissDMarie84 on 2020/03/16 20:16
After progressing through the program using the app for a certain amount of time, it crashes. Then you have to delete the app, lose your data, and redownload the app.
This seems really bogus
by idontwantanother1 on 2020/03/14 03:37
This is my first time writing a review for anything. I was so delighted to find this app. Highlights was something I used to always enjoy as a child and the fact that I found the app to play as many puzzle games as a I wanted seemed so much fun. It’s been over a week I haven’t been able to even open the app. It just shuts out by itself. When I looked up the application on the App Store it said it had to be updated (which I did). And guess what? The freakin app still didn’t load. If I don’t get a reasonable explanation as to why this BS is happening I will unhappily unsubscribe from this application.
So disappointed
by Adamdavid123459 on 2020/03/13 17:43
I am so disappointed in this app for my child . I paid for a subscription, and after several months, can still not access the premium content. I tried to restore purchases many times yet it does not work. I have tried to contact highlights to get technical support, but highlights tells me to call Apple and is unwilling to help. They were not nice nor helpful...
Memories
by Emaaaniii_ on 2020/03/13 01:43
I used to love doing these as a kid!!! And I was so happy to find out that it was an app now. I’ve only had this downloaded for about 20 minutes and I’m addicted!! Bringing back childhood memories! Love it!
Like it
by Missbritt01 on 2020/03/12 02:44
I like it but it keeps crashing and i just paid for the subscription. Super frustrating.
Crashes, will not open and lost all my work
by Looks4Quality on 2020/03/09 10:47
Since the new “upgrade” this app that I paid for crashes, will not open, pushes me to sign up and try to pay AGAIN. It lost all my hours of work and is making me start over. Don’t waste your money. Find a different hidden picture game. It also forces you to work each picture before new content is given. There was one zombie type picture that was horrible.

I have loved this game since I was a child, but …
by ericthegreat16 on 2020/03/06 01:44
It is so frustrating that not all the puzzles are formatted to come up in landscape view. I have a nice new iPad Pro and use it primarily in landscape mode. Can Highlights look into this??

by Aubreeb123 on 2020/03/04 23:30
OK just is a full hour I hate this game guess what everybody say that just to remind you OK I’m definitely on the five but like why would you even be so mean to me I have a color picture of it and like people Willy so whoever made this game that is a bad game I don’t like it I’m sorry but just the game of it is not fun at all like oh my brother plays a role he doesn’t even know what it is well it’s definitely the baddest And you could’ve seen my face if you want to see my friend gave anyone the way but I still love me and you could’ve seen my face if you want to see my friend gave anyone the way but I still love you it’s 😭 I love you bye-bye
Spent money for nothing
by Msvanji on 2020/02/29 22:30

We have paper book copies of these and our whole family ages 6 and down love them. And even ya parents !!
Aww
by Kittychan156 on 2020/02/23 10:38
I’m highly disappointed you don’t have ANY free unlocked puzzles that you have to pay to play or you get snot... I use to love highlight books. I’d sit and play in them for hours. I still even have a few from my childhood. I’m highly disappointed this game is all about money though. Pay or DONT play.. so sad! 😒
App keeps force closing
by bballstopmodel on 2020/02/23 01:29
I have been enjoying the game but the app keeps force closing. I am becoming very frustrated because I have paid my money and this is the second time that this has happened.
Puzzles
by webbgirl on 2020/02/22 10:45
I signed up for the monthly and do you still great 1 puzzle a day??? Have to wait hours and hours before being able to play another. Have complained several times....not sure if it’s worth a monthly subscription as much as i have always love the game.

i think that app should be free and i mean freeeee and than after few week offer the deal but is ensane to download and app that you dont know and right away u need to start a free trial but have to put ur credit card in it IS A FREE TRIAL WHY MY CREDIT CARD ?
Disappointing...what am I paying for
by Buffy GT on 2020/02/20 02:31
The app doesn’t turn on!! It starts out like it will get to the games part, but then it closes and sends you to the main screen of my phone!!!
App does not work!,
by lorenzyyy😊 on 2020/02/20 01:12
I purchased an annual subscription but every time I log in ,it asks me to subscribe again. I contacted customer support and still have not heard a response. Don’t waste your money.
Expensive
by aesthij101 on 2020/02/15 19:46
Update 2/15/2020: I have updated the app as the developer suggests in its latest response to me and the problem is still the same. All puzzles are locked for me. When I press the “Restore Purchases” option I get a “There’s nothing to restore” pop-up. Update 2/7/2020: When I wrote my first review I didn’t realize that I wasn’t getting the content that I paid for with my subscription. The app will not acknowledge that I have a subscription. I have emailed Highlights app customer service and in their response to my email they told me to email app customer service. I sent a second email and have yet to receive a response. The developer responded to my initial review. I am hoping they will respond to this updated review and fix the issue I am having with this $30 app that is not working. Original review: Way way too expensive for what you get. And no way to get a partial refund once autopay debits. I don’t understand how it has such a high average rating when all of the more recent ratings are 1-star.
Solution STILL DOES NOT WORK
by Unhappy Papa. on 2020/02/14 11:15
I’ve done everything instructed for latest version 1.3.8. Restore does not work -“nothing to restore.” Just give me my money back and let’s break up. Frustrating!!!
More puzzles
by MontYsela on 2020/02/12 21:44
I have paid for more puzzles and it has charged my card but the app shows i have not paid. Extremely disappointed
Save Your Money
by Tmac8859 on 2020/02/12 07:11
I was just looking for some Hidden Pictures games and the apps I saw for free were not even what I was looking for so when I searched it came up with Highlights and I remember as a kid their find the hidden items pics were great, well these are not and totally NOT worth $30! I would like my money back if possible.
Purchasing doesn't work
by 1HowardRoark on 2020/02/08 18:16
My daughter loves the hidden puzzles in the physical Highlights magazine so I tried out the subscription here. Trial worked fine but as soon as I began being charged, I lost access and it would prompt me to log in again and then told me there was no purchase to restore. Terrible experience and customer service wasn't able to help. I'd recommend sticking with the daily free puzzle and avoid the headache of paying for nothing.
Love it but app won’t open anymore
by parryotter394 on 2020/02/05 23:31
This is definitely my favorite app. I am not a child, but I don’t care. I love it. But now I can’t play it anymore. The app acts like it’s loading, then closes. I’ve tried deleting it and reinstalling, which worked for about 3 days. Tried restarting my phone, checking for a new update, closing out of it completely and reopening, and still nothing. Pleeeease fix it, I’m having withdrawals 😩 (Not really, but still, please let me play again) 5 stars for the game, 1 star out of frustration that I can’t play.
Can only access 1 puzzle per day
by Chamby4054 on 2020/02/04 03:58
Subscribed annually but can only access 1 puzzle per day and the app claims that we have access to 125+ puzzles per day? There’s no phone number to call and when I click on app support nothing happens??
Not free to play!!!
by Pj2699 on 2020/02/02 03:48
Not just in app purchases. You HAVE to purchase to play!!! So disappointed.
Images are too small and can’t see items
by nana7007 on 2020/01/30 21:23
Times are not long enough and it does not encourage kids to do it properly. It’s easy to cheat by clicking randomly just to get 3 stars
Not a fan
by Keynote Powerpoint on 2020/01/27 19:06
Not a fan of the fact that they charge for this. Why would I ever pay for this when there’s more just like it for free. What a shame.
good app but bad function
by powerpuffツバサ on 2020/01/25 03:18
I had already subscribed to this app 2 weeks already, but I didn't get all of the puzzles unlocked. It still had the "GET STARTED" button despite the fact I already paid the subscription. Highlights Developers, could you please take the time to review my complaint? Thank you!
Subscription doesn’t work
by jonhagop on 2020/01/22 04:54
Got to play one game then was prompted to Subscribe. Subscribed and the purchase was processed (it appeared in my list of iTunes subs) but it didn’t unlock the app. Tried rebooting the app, nothing. Even tried unsubscribing and reaubscribing, still didn’t work. Ridiculous!
Should not be listed as free.
by SIOphilic on 2020/01/19 07:50
You really should notify people before they download the app that they need to buy a subscription to play the game at all. Like I understand why a subscription is there, but I don’t like the fact that I wasted my storage and data to download a game I can’t even play without spending money.
Good game but....
by purrlandmiyagi on 2020/01/18 04:58
Will suddenly stop and no longer will the game reopen. You have to delete the app and start all over again. This is the second time it’s happened which is a shame as I got far and don’t want to go through all those hidden games to get back to where I was only for it to happen a third time. Will be canceling my subscription.
Was great not so much now
by cmbeb90 on 2020/01/17 04:58
I purchased a yearly subscription but I don’t get to access or even play any other the other puzzles. I only get to do the daily one and when I click to search in different categories it says I have to pay. Which I already paid $29.99 for the year. I click on restore and it does absolutely nothing. It was a big waste of hard earned money!
Dumb
by Abcdefghijklmnop❤ on 2020/01/17 03:33
Who creates a game like this where no one can play without paying😑 like if this game was that interesting and worth wasting money on

Paid for subscription still prompts for purchase.
by kollross4 on 2020/01/16 03:50
My son has an iPad with his own (child) Apple ID that is tied to my family account. Subscribed to the yearly subscription (billed) but every time he opens the app it asks to choose a monthly or yearly subscription plan. Selecting “restore purchase” has no affect. Selecting yearly plan and going to the steps produces a message saying I’m subscribed through 2021.
Won’t load
by Disneyroo on 2020/01/15 06:19
I’ve been enjoying this immensely until this last fe days. It won’t load to play the pictures. I have a paid annual subscription. What’s going on????

Why don’t be honest and said the app cost $30 instead claim its a free app. Insane subscription rate per year. Usually not write reviews but if i was able i will no star to this trash app
Demasiado Dinero
by EboniAnnais on 2020/01/09 21:56
Solo pues hacer uno cada cierto tiempo y si quieres más, tienes q pagar, yo pague la subscriptions por 3.99 para que me dieran más de 25 juegos y no me dieron nada, aún no se si me lo vayan a cobrar 😡
Terrible
by roselilyfun on 2020/01/04 17:50
This stupid game charged me 30$ for a stupid subscription. I canceled and called and no refund. Ridiculous.
Liked the old app
by monof22015 on 2020/01/04 13:05
My daughter has the older version, which I had a subscription to. My son wanted it on his iPad, so I had to put the new version on his. Had to sign up for ANOTHER subscription, since it’s a different version. It won’t load the puzzles. It says I need a subscription, but when I try to buy a subscription it says I already have one, but won’t load the puzzles. Over and over... I’ve tried deleting the app and starting all over, all to no avail.
Keeps Crashing
by Jen Calcano on 2020/01/02 01:39
I absolutely LOVE this app. It’s very entertaining. However, I haven’t been able to use it for a couple of weeks. I’ll click on the app. It’ll load, then crash. The first time this happened, I deleted the app, downloaded it again and had to start from scratch. It’s disappointing because I paid for the year subscription and I haven’t been able to use it. I’m giving a three-star because when I’m able to use it it’s great. I just wish the app would work.
Game not working
by BrittPaulina on 2019/12/29 00:35
I signed up for the game and it won’t let me play anything but the daily challenge. 😒
Purchased but still only get 1 puzzle
by 4Qui on 2019/12/22 22:28
Purchased this game. Downloaded it, shows my account but still I’m only getting 1 game a day. Even tried the restore, delete and redownload, nothing works. Plus I purchased on a weekend so no tech support. Then I finally get to a website and to submit a ticket you have to enter your mailing address... for an APP! I’ll be refunding. No fun if you don’t get what you paid for. I expected more from Highlights.
Rip off
by kiroarous on 2019/12/17 02:25
It says free, the first thing it does, it asks you for your birthday to get you online for a $20+ subscription, and when you reject that, you get 1, that’s right, just 1 picture to work on.
Something is wrong...
by cliffnja on 2019/12/14 04:01
I purchased the annual subscription because I didn’t want to wait 24 hrs for each puzzle. I wanted to do the puzzles whenever I wanted to but I still can’t get more than one puzzle a day. I tried to email the company but still haven’t heard...
Could be good
by lolipop00029 on 2019/12/01 04:05
When I first downloaded this game I thought it would be great but turns out you have to an expensive pay for a subscription or you only get one puzzle EVERY 24 HOURS. 😕 I would not recommend this game to anyone because honestly no one wants to pay for their kid to find objects hidden in a picture. I deleted this game for this reason. Sorry for the negative feedback but it needed to be said. Hope this changes in the future.
Doesn’t work
by tw.sa.fan on 2019/11/24 19:05
Purchased the one year subscription for my daughter. I had to delete and download twice. It still will not work. We did not get the 125 instant puzzles. Every time I click on something it asks if I want to sign up. Very frustrating and I will be canceling my subscription.
Was great, now won’t open
by lbaker84 on 2019/11/13 11:16
The app was great until three days ago when it won’t open and now crashes every time I try to open it.
Great game but not worth paying for!
by SplashQueen612 on 2020/05/06 03:30
I enjoyed Highlights magazine throughout my childhood so I didn’t hesitate to subscribe to play this game. It was great at first but now it continues to crash. When I delete the app and download it again, all of my progress is gone. Even if I sign in, my progress is not there. I don’t like having to redo the same pictures over and over. If I’m paying for something, I expect acceptable quality. There are also a few boards with glitches where the item isn’t even visible in the picture unless you use the hint button, then it magically appears on the screen. Good app, needs work, not worth paying for. I’m deleting for good since it crashed again for the 3rd time and didn’t save anything.
Good game. Fun but frustrating
by Caposey on 2019/07/20 11:56
I like the game but my one complaint would be that it crashes more than any app I’ve EVER had. Very frustrating. I’ve had to delete and install it several times. I’ve had to start over because the first time didn’t save my progress )I almost quit then. Maybe should have) I’m about to do it again because it just crashed but it’s going to be the last time I do this And now after reading the other reviews it is CLEARLY an ongoing problem that they can’t seem to fix and obviously don’t care to fix. Just get your money and go right? I’m sorry but all other apps manage to make it work. AND you are charging for this? The more I type the more frustrated I get so I’ll stop.
I agree fun and frustrating
by kploveshermjs on 2020/04/26 20:03
I agree with others who have commented. Myself and my 7 year old love playing this app unfortunately the app will just stop working after awhile. I have reinstalled this app twice and each time it will work very well and then all of a sudden you can’t get back in the app. Seems like this is a problem that’s been going on for a while and hasn’t been fixed. I have canceled my subscription but will check back at another time to see if they have figured out the glitch. The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is because of the glitch.
Best Game Ever!!!!!
by xoMissDiorxo on 2020/04/09 11:18
This is the BEST game of ALL the game apps that I’ve ever played! I’m so addicted! This Hidden Puzzle Game was made so well! The items are so cleverly hidden in the awesome art work. I only found this game app through my son’s hidden puzzle book & thought I’d give it a try since we have so much fun finding the hidden puzzles together. It’s really a FUN game for all ages. So worth the prescription. I would really recommend it & I never right reviews but it’s just so good that I had let people know.
Very Unhappy!
by emb4705 on 2020/05/16 03:28
I love the puzzles, was excited to download the app and happy to pay the annual subscription fee. But I’ve had the app for only a couple of weeks and this is the fourth time it’s crashed. Every time it gets to a certain number of new puzzles it crashes and I have to delete the app and re-install. I lose all of those puzzles and end up re-doing the same puzzles from scratch again and again. Enough already! There are enough of the same complaints being written - why can’t you fix this problem? This would be 5 stars plus, but I have to rate it a zero because of the constant crash problem. Please fix it so I can keep playing.
Love it but app won’t open anymore
by parryotter394 on 2020/02/05 23:31
This is definitely my favorite app. I am not a child, but I don’t care. I love it. But now I can’t play it anymore. The app acts like it’s loading, then closes. I’ve tried deleting it and reinstalling, which worked for about 3 days. Tried restarting my phone, checking for a new update, closing out of it completely and reopening, and still nothing. Pleeeease fix it, I’m having withdrawals 😩 (Not really, but still, please let me play again) 5 stars for the game, 1 star out of frustration that I can’t play.
Hidden objects
by 6xzwinston on 2020/05/19 01:54
Love the game even as an adult. But it does keep crashing. If they can come up with such picture games they could at least fix the crashing problem. You have to delete game the reinstall and sometimes it lets you sign into your account other times it doesn’t. If you pay for a year you should be able to play without it crashing every other week! Please fix this game
This seems really bogus
by idontwantanother1 on 2020/03/14 03:37
This is my first time writing a review for anything. I was so delighted to find this app. Highlights was something I used to always enjoy as a child and the fact that I found the app to play as many puzzle games as a I wanted seemed so much fun. It’s been over a week I haven’t been able to even open the app. It just shuts out by itself. When I looked up the application on the App Store it said it had to be updated (which I did). And guess what? The freakin app still didn’t load. If I don’t get a reasonable explanation as to why this BS is happening I will unhappily unsubscribe from this application.
AubreE
by Aubreeb123 on 2020/03/04 23:30
OK just is a full hour I hate this game guess what everybody say that just to remind you OK I’m definitely on the five but like why would you even be so mean to me I have a color picture of it and like people Willy so whoever made this game that is a bad game I don’t like it I’m sorry but just the game of it is not fun at all like oh my brother plays a role he doesn’t even know what it is well it’s definitely the baddest And you could’ve seen my face if you want to see my friend gave anyone the way but I still love me and you could’ve seen my face if you want to see my friend gave anyone the way but I still love you it’s 😭 I love you bye-bye

Great, but keeps crashing
by JPJPJP7728 on 2020/05/22 00:00
This app is great, I love it. But it’s now crashing and won’t open every time I try to open it. This happened before and I had to delete it and reinstall it, but it deleted all my data. I don’t want to have to do that again. Please fix whatever bug is making it continue to crash every time it gets opened.
Bunch of thieves
by nickname9765789 on 2020/04/22 19:00
Had this app on two different iPads (mine and my wife’s) for our two kids. Worked no problem. After updating, can only play on my wife’s iPad since she is the one who bought the subscription. If my other child wants to play, it would cost an additional 30 dollars for the year. Bogus that you can family share the app but not the subscription. Complete rip off to pay 60 dollars for two kids to play. Completely not worth it. And now you’ve ruined my kids day during quarantine. Thanks Highlights!
Love it but it keeps crashing
by Flippurss on 2020/05/10 02:40
My wife and I play this game every night and we always get to turtles then the app crashes and we can’t even open it up again. I even got a new phone and still doesn’t work. It’s disappointing cause as I said it’s was a nightly ritual for us. I’m just going to stop subscription and maybe find another game. Other than that the game was really fun.
Puzzles
by webbgirl on 2020/02/22 10:45
I signed up for the monthly and do you still great 1 puzzle a day??? Have to wait hours and hours before being able to play another. Have complained several times....not sure if it’s worth a monthly subscription as much as i have always love the game.
Nostalgia
by Nehazel on 2019/07/08 01:13
Highlights was one the best parts of my childhood and the hidden pictures was my favorite part! This brought me back to fond memories of sitting and doing these with my parents. It taught me to patience, determination, and how to have a keen eye. Thank you Highlights for the many smiles you have provided me over the years!! :)
Great while it lasted
by Recovering One on 2019/07/10 15:08
I started and had a subscription for a few months with no problems. All of a sudden it wouldn’t open. I decided I probably needed to remove it and download again. Unfortunately, my email address wasn’t attached so I started over. After playing awhile yesterday, the app crashed. Following that it won’t open at all, even today. I’ve reloaded it and it’s still crashing after I’ve logged in. I canceled my subscription, but it’s super frustrating. 🙄
Not enough puzzles for a monthly subscription
by JChachS on 2020/05/24 05:49
The old app was so much better. You could also reset all puzzles. After you finish all of the categories, you’re paying $3.99 a month for one daily puzzle. Also, you have to constantly turn your tablet since the pictures are both horizontal and vertical. Not worth it. 😔
Not worth the money
by Lcriner on 2020/05/14 00:36
This game does not save progress I’ve played the same levels so many different times that I’m over it, it does not open levels after the stars are reached and when it does and u exit out you have to start all over again. I’m over it this is very frustrating and a complete waste of time and my day.
Liked the old app
by monof22015 on 2020/01/04 13:05

Screen cuts off
by aileen5798 on 2020/04/12 23:17
It’s hard to see what objects I need to find and what they look like because it cuts off the screen on the IPhone 11. Someone needs to fix this if they have us paying subscription for puzzles. Plus if you don’t buy the subscription you can only do one small puzzle every 5-6 hours!
App Glitches
by High_PointThreat on 2020/05/02 07:43
This app glitches more than ever! My child would complete one board and it would glitch and erase all of her progress. She finally reached “I guess” the end of the board and it glitched closed out and we are still unable to reopen app. I’ve already emailed a complaint in the past, and now it’s to the point where I just want to be reimbursed. Im definitely canceling my subscription.
Crashes, will not open and lost all my work
by Looks4Quality on 2020/03/09 10:47
Since the new “upgrade” this app that I paid for crashes, will not open, pushes me to sign up and try to pay AGAIN. It lost all my hours of work and is making me start over. Don’t waste your money. Find a different hidden picture game. It also forces you to work each picture before new content is given. There was one zombie type picture that was horrible.
Purchasing doesn't work
by 1HowardRoark on 2020/02/08 18:16
My daughter loves the hidden puzzles in the physical Highlights magazine so I tried out the subscription here. Trial worked fine but as soon as I began being charged, I lost access and it would prompt me to log in again and then told me there was no purchase to restore. Terrible experience and customer service wasn't able to help. I'd recommend sticking with the daily free puzzle and avoid the headache of paying for nothing.
Could be good

Love the game, but keepsessing up after I get so far!!
by ReDDhead 81 on 2019/06/22 17:20
Yeah absolutely love this game although I must say it’s for “older” kids!! Also this is my third time downloading it cause it keeps getting stuck and then I lose all the progress I made!! That makes me really mad! So here I go for the 3rd time around on a game I have to pay for monthly that keeps shutting down on me!!
Review
by justlailah on 2019/06/16 01:24
Hello I’m Lailah and I’m loving this app!!! I like doing this now that it is summer! Before I was soo bored but when I got my 44 highlights book in the mail I did the hidden pictures then I said why not get the app? So now I love this sooo much thank you so much highlights this is my review
Great old game
by AlishiaMD on 2020/05/19 02:48
So I’ve got three stars on all of them but now I’m done with all the ones given. Will highlights be coming out with more hidden puzzles for this app? I don’t want to keep paying for nothing new...
Purchased but still only get 1 puzzle
by 4Qui on 2019/12/22 22:28
Purchased this game. Downloaded it, shows my account but still I’m only getting 1 game a day. Even tried the restore, delete and redownload, nothing works. Plus I purchased on a weekend so no tech support. Then I finally get to a website and to submit a ticket you have to enter your mailing address... for an APP! I’ll be refunding. No fun if you don’t get what you paid for. I expected more from Highlights.
Good game but....
by purrlandmiyagi on 2020/01/18 04:58
Will suddenly stop and no longer will the game reopen. You have to delete the app and start all over again. This is the second time it’s happened which is a shame as I got far and don’t want to go through all those hidden games to get back to where I was only for it to happen a third time. Will be canceling my subscription.
How to Cancel
by Federal st on 2019/06/12 22:09
Unfortunately my granddaughter is too young for this. My mistake. I got it thinking she’d love it but my mistake. Trying to cancel but can’t find how on site or settings. Can you help. It’s really a marvelous activity if age appropriate. Thank you
So disappointed
by Adamdavid123459 on 2020/03/13 17:43
I am so disappointed in this app for my child . I paid for a subscription, and after several months, can still not access the premium content. I tried to restore purchases many times yet it does not work. I have tried to contact highlights to get technical support, but highlights tells me to call Apple and is unwilling to help. They were not nice nor helpful...
Fun game, but better without it crashing
by crystal2blessed on 2020/03/25 03:52
I have deleted and installed this app over six times, playing the same games over and over. Every time I reach a certain level, it crashes. 😡
Money money money
by Suagismybias93 on 2020/04/12 18:31
This game would be fantastic if it didn't make you pay. Like you can only do ONE puzzle and then if you want to do more you have to pay and paying for a child's puzzle game is ridiculous. Also I could literally find worksheets of this and print it out with my printer. It's the same result except free soooooo.
Memories
by Emaaaniii_ on 2020/03/13 01:43
I used to love doing these as a kid!!! And I was so happy to find out that it was an app now. I’ve only had this downloaded for about 20 minutes and I’m addicted!! Bringing back childhood memories! Love it!
It stops working
by Mary427987ffff on 2019/07/15 15:49
I love playing with this app, but for the second time it has quit working. When I try to open it the icon starts to open but the disappears. I reinstalled it the first time but lost all the new puzzles I had unlocked. Frustrating.
Poor customer support
by racerdad55 on 2020/05/04 21:14
I purchased the online app. But I cannot log into the website because it asks for a customer number that is found on a magazine mailing label. I don’t have a magazine mailing label because I don’t have a magazine! I can’t get through the customer support page. It tells me I already have an active chat session, but I don’t! 😕
Amazing
by sabbymendez on 2020/02/24 03:47
We have paper book copies of these and our whole family ages 6 and down love them. And even ya parents !!
Paid for subscription still prompts for purchase.
by kollross4 on 2020/01/16 03:50
My son has an iPad with his own (child) Apple ID that is tied to my family account. Subscribed to the yearly subscription (billed) but every time he opens the app it asks to choose a monthly or yearly subscription plan. Selecting “restore purchase” has no affect. Selecting yearly plan and going to the steps produces a message saying I’m subscribed through 2021.
Save Your Money
by Tmac8859 on 2020/02/12 07:11
I was just looking for some Hidden Pictures games and the apps I saw for free were not even what I was looking for so when I searched it came up with Highlights and I remember as a kid their find the hidden items pics were great, well these are not and totally NOT worth $30! I would like my money back if possible.
Glitch
by Rese7 on 2020/05/14 00:10
I Love this game but every time I get past a certain level it freezes and stops working. I then have to delete it and re download it and my progress is never saved! Ugh.....
Fun Game
by kkay6 on 2020/03/17 03:44
I love this game! I have beat all 125 puzzles. I would like more puzzles to become available soon or I will unsubscribe because there’s no point on paying for a game I have beat!
I have loved this game since I was a child, but …
by ericthegreat16 on 2020/03/06 01:44
It is so frustrating that not all the puzzles are formatted to come up in landscape view. I have a nice new iPad Pro and use it primarily in landscape mode. Can Highlights look into this??
Should not be listed as free.
by SIOphilic on 2020/01/19 07:50
You really should notify people before they download the app that they need to buy a subscription to play the game at all. Like I understand why a subscription is there, but I don’t like the fact that I wasted my storage and data to download a game I can’t even play without spending money.
Awesome Game
by Ashleigh1108 on 2020/04/19 14:31
I absolutely love this game. It’s so relaxing to play. I love completing one category and getting surprised with the next category. I would have rated this app a 5 but after the recent update, the app will not open on my phone.
good app but bad function
by powerpuffツバサ on 2020/01/25 03:18
I had already subscribed to this app 2 weeks already, but I didn't get all of the puzzles unlocked. It still had the "GET STARTED" button despite the fact I already paid the subscription. Highlights Developers, could you please take the time to review my complaint? Thank you!
Disappointing
by Sunni01114 on 2019/11/13 02:27
The app was great until it crashed. I had to delete it and download again only for it to not recognize me and the progress I’d made. It wouldn’t identify my email, even after emailing me a password reset. Also wouldn’t restore from my Apple ID. I’m disappointed and frustrated after loving these puzzles as a kid.
Brings me back to my childhood!
by Andreajyn on 2020/04/12 21:45
I loved seeing these on the magazine as a kid, now I have it on my phone! Good way to pass the time!
Aww
by Kittychan156 on 2020/02/23 10:38
I’m highly disappointed you don’t have ANY free unlocked puzzles that you have to pay to play or you get snot... I use to love highlight books. I’d sit and play in them for hours. I still even have a few from my childhood. I’m highly disappointed this game is all about money though. Pay or DONT play.. so sad! 😒
Doesn’t work
by tw.sa.fan on 2019/11/24 19:05
Purchased the one year subscription for my daughter. I had to delete and download twice. It still will not work. We did not get the 125 instant puzzles. Every time I click on something it asks if I want to sign up. Very frustrating and I will be canceling my subscription.

App keeps crashing
by Dre.W. on 2020/05/22 03:10
The puzzles are fun but I’ve gotten to the point where the app keeps crashing. I can’t even open it anymore. Very disappointing for an app you have to pay for. Don’t buy.
Great, but keeps crashing
by JPJPJP7728 on 2020/05/22 00:00
This app is great, I love it. But it’s now crashing and won’t open every time I try to open it. This happened before and I had to delete it and reinstall it, but it deleted all my data. I don’t want to have to do that again. Please fix whatever bug is making it continue to crash every time it gets opened.
Love it but...
by Celivega on 2020/05/20 12:48
I just updated OS and app won’t open anymore. So bummed!! Love this app.
Great old game
by AlishiaMD on 2020/05/19 02:48
So I’ve got three stars on all of them but now I’m done with all the ones given. Will highlights be coming out with more hidden puzzles for this app? I don’t want to keep paying for nothing new...
Fix it
by Nionat on 2020/05/19 02:47
The app keeps going off as soon as it starts opening
Hidden objects
by 6xzwinston on 2020/05/19 01:54
Love the game even as an adult. But it does keep crashing. If they can come up with such picture games they could at least fix the crashing problem. You have to delete game the reinstall and sometimes it lets you sign into your account other times it doesn’t. If you pay for a year you should be able to play without it crashing every other week! Please fix this game
Good but clashes a lot
by dknight87 on 2020/05/17 07:10
I love the game dnt get me wrong but I haven’t been able to play in 3 days now it well open Nd instantly close out I’m payin my money for an app that won’t open Nd clashes this is outrageous Nd unacceptable
Crashes immediately
by queenpuzzlequeen on 2020/05/16 23:07
Game worked for a week or two but now immediately crashes.
Very Unhappy!
by emb4705 on 2020/05/16 03:28
I love the puzzles, was excited to download the app and happy to pay the annual subscription fee. But I’ve had the app for only a couple of weeks and this is the fourth time it’s crashed. Every time it gets to a certain number of new puzzles it crashes and I have to delete the app and re-install. I lose all of those puzzles and end up re-doing the same puzzles from scratch again and again. Enough already! There are enough of the same complaints being written - why can’t you fix this problem? This would be 5 stars plus, but I have to rate it a zero because of the constant crash problem. Please fix it so I can keep playing.
Would be great if it was free.
by userrr11 on 2020/05/15 16:23
Have to pay for everything.
Not worth the money
by Lcriner on 2020/05/14 00:36
This game does not save progress I’ve played the same levels so many different times that I’m over it, it does not open levels after the stars are reached and when it does and u exit out you have to start all over again. I’m over it this is very frustrating and a complete waste of time and my day.
Glitch
by Rese7 on 2020/05/14 00:10
I Love this game but every time I get past a certain level it freezes and stops working. I then have to delete it and re download it and my progress is never saved! Ugh.....
Great for a grandma too!
by Queens2 on 2020/05/12 19:19
All ages can enjoy!
Love it but it keeps crashing
by Flippurss on 2020/05/10 02:40
My wife and I play this game every night and we always get to turtles then the app crashes and we can’t even open it up again. I even got a new phone and still doesn’t work. It’s disappointing cause as I said it’s was a nightly ritual for us. I’m just going to stop subscription and maybe find another game. Other than that the game was really fun.
Great game but not worth paying for!
by SplashQueen612 on 2020/05/06 03:30
I enjoyed Highlights magazine throughout my childhood so I didn’t hesitate to subscribe to play this game. It was great at first but now it continues to crash. When I delete the app and download it again, all of my progress is gone. Even if I sign in, my progress is not there. I don’t like having to redo the same pictures over and over. If I’m paying for something, I expect acceptable quality. There are also a few boards with glitches where the item isn’t even visible in the picture unless you use the hint button, then it magically appears on the screen. Good app, needs work, not worth paying for. I’m deleting for good since it crashed again for the 3rd time and didn’t save anything.
Poor customer support
by racerdad55 on 2020/05/04 21:14
I purchased the online app. But I cannot log into the website because it asks for a customer number that is found on a magazine mailing label. I don’t have a magazine mailing label because I don’t have a magazine! I can’t get through the customer support page. It tells me I already have an active chat session, but I don’t! 😕
Bugs
by kelly7164 on 2020/05/04 01:32
I bought a subscription for a year on 4/10/20. We went through a bunch of puzzles and the app crashed. I reloaded and at about the same amount of puzzles completed it crashed again. I canceled my subscription but it would be nice to get my money refunded.
App Glitches
by High_PointThreat on 2020/05/02 07:43
This app glitches more than ever! My child would complete one board and it would glitch and erase all of her progress. She finally reached “I guess” the end of the board and it glitched closed out and we are still unable to reopen app. I’ve already emailed a complaint in the past, and now it’s to the point where I just want to be reimbursed. Im definitely canceling my subscription.
Crashes
by Jcornell13 on 2020/05/01 10:37
Was working well until yesterday when it started crashing on the blue screen.
Wish it would work
by bBQ Mkb on 2020/04/29 12:25
I enjoyed this game for about 5 weeks. Ultimately canceled because it kept kicking me out.
Keeps crashing
by Mackeroninpeyt on 2020/04/27 03:49
This will be the third time the game has crashed after reaching a certain level. I paid $30.00 just barely a few weeks ago! Is this the ploy? Please help me and fix the problem or I would like a refund. Thank you. This frustration only adds to the quarantine nightmare we are all living.
I agree fun and frustrating
by kploveshermjs on 2020/04/26 20:03
I agree with others who have commented. Myself and my 7 year old love playing this app unfortunately the app will just stop working after awhile. I have reinstalled this app twice and each time it will work very well and then all of a sudden you can’t get back in the app. Seems like this is a problem that’s been going on for a while and hasn’t been fixed. I have canceled my subscription but will check back at another time to see if they have figured out the glitch. The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is because of the glitch.
Garbage. Just trying to sell subscription $$
by schmanke on 2020/04/26 14:57
Don't waste your time unless you are looking to spend money
Frustrating!
by matthewtoo on 2020/04/26 09:07
I paid for the annual subscription and the app just crashes when I try to open it.
Crashing
by shawn7810 on 2020/04/22 19:56
I love the app, but it continues to crash. It acts like it’s loading, but it never does. The app just closes. I turned my iPad off and back on again, but that didn’t work. I checked to make sure the app was up to date and it is...
Bunch of thieves
by nickname9765789 on 2020/04/22 19:00
Had this app on two different iPads (mine and my wife’s) for our two kids. Worked no problem. After updating, can only play on my wife’s iPad since she is the one who bought the subscription. If my other child wants to play, it would cost an additional 30 dollars for the year. Bogus that you can family share the app but not the subscription. Complete rip off to pay 60 dollars for two kids to play. Completely not worth it. And now you’ve ruined my kids day during quarantine. Thanks Highlights!
App
by good but very frutrating 2020 on 2020/04/22 18:59
I really like the app but it locks up and won’t let me back in. If I reinstall the app it doesn’t save my levels. Shouldn’t happen on an app you’re paying for.
I hate highlights
by Bennie's review on 2020/04/22 16:08
When you do The challenge when you find all of them it says you didn’t find One of them.
Great game
by Gymnastics 17 on 2020/04/20 18:56
I played all the puzzles and wondered if they add more or once you finish that’s it.
Awesome Game
by Ashleigh1108 on 2020/04/19 14:31
I absolutely love this game. It’s so relaxing to play. I love completing one category and getting surprised with the next category. I would have rated this app a 5 but after the recent update, the app will not open on my phone.
Screen size
by rlo1234567890 on 2020/04/15 23:01
Not compatible with the screen size of the iPhone 11 so you can’t see everything that’s supposed to be on the screen
Keeps crashing
by marirsmmeri on 2020/04/15 21:36
App has been crashing for a few weeks now. It isn’t allowing me to log into my account, which I paid for the whole year.
LOVE IT!
by Boboatea1969 on 2020/04/14 20:28
I love puzzles and the price is reasonable. And they have a lot of puzzles 🧩.
Screen cuts off
by aileen5798 on 2020/04/12 23:17
It’s hard to see what objects I need to find and what they look like because it cuts off the screen on the IPhone 11. Someone needs to fix this if they have us paying subscription for puzzles. Plus if you don’t buy the subscription you can only do one small puzzle every 5-6 hours!
Brings me back to my childhood!
by Andreajyn on 2020/04/12 21:45
I loved seeing these on the magazine as a kid, now I have it on my phone! Good way to pass the time!
Money money money
by Suagismybias93 on 2020/04/12 18:31
This game would be fantastic if it didn't make you pay. Like you can only do ONE puzzle and then if you want to do more you have to pay and paying for a child's puzzle game is ridiculous. Also I could literally find worksheets of this and print it out with my printer. It's the same result except free soooooo.

Keeps Crashing
by Dlaing on 2020/04/09 23:01
This use to work fine. But now it tries to open, H with circle starts then it crashes. I subscribed through your web site but if this continues i will have to cancel. Tried deleating and reinstalling but I’m not going to keep doing this.
So not good👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼
by Bellzella on 2020/04/09 15:44
This game is so not good because all of the other puzzles are locked. Can you please unlock all the puzzles without even typing my dad’s password. If you don’t I will delete the app.
Best Game Ever!!!!!
by xoMissDiorxo on 2020/04/09 11:18
This is the BEST game of ALL the game apps that I’ve ever played! I’m so addicted! This Hidden Puzzle Game was made so well! The items are so cleverly hidden in the awesome art work. I only found this game app through my son’s hidden puzzle book & thought I’d give it a try since we have so much fun finding the hidden puzzles together. It’s really a FUN game for all ages. So worth the prescription. I would really recommend it & I never right reviews but it’s just so good that I had let people know.
Subscription
by tleigh26810 on 2020/04/09 03:07
I paid 29.99 and cannot open other puzzles. I can only play one game per day.
It keeps crashing
by Knockette on 2020/03/27 15:58
Great game! Takes me back to my younger days but it has consistently been crashing for 5 days now... It won’t load up at all ...maybe It’s a sign I should stop paying for something that won’t work.
Fun game, but better without it crashing
by crystal2blessed on 2020/03/25 03:52
I have deleted and installed this app over six times, playing the same games over and over. Every time I reach a certain level, it crashes. 😡
Very entertaining
by Habanation on 2020/03/21 19:20
If u are in someplace waiting ...this app can help
Game keeps crashing!!
by Kendra bray on 2020/03/21 17:55
The only thing that I don’t like about this game is that it keeps crashing! I mean why charge people for this app if it is not gonna work properly. Definitely thinking about ending my subscription
Glitchy app
by Msvoy on 2020/03/17 12:44
This app is very glitchy. Deleted.
Fun Game
by kkay6 on 2020/03/17 03:44
I love this game! I have beat all 125 puzzles. I would like more puzzles to become available soon or I will unsubscribe because there’s no point on paying for a game I have beat!
App Crashes
by MissDMarie84 on 2020/03/16 20:16
After progressing through the program using the app for a certain amount of time, it crashes. Then you have to delete the app, lose your data, and redownload the app.
This seems really bogus
by idontwantanother1 on 2020/03/14 03:37
This is my first time writing a review for anything. I was so delighted to find this app. Highlights was something I used to always enjoy as a child and the fact that I found the app to play as many puzzle games as a I wanted seemed so much fun. It’s been over a week I haven’t been able to even open the app. It just shuts out by itself. When I looked up the application on the App Store it said it had to be updated (which I did). And guess what? The freakin app still didn’t load. If I don’t get a reasonable explanation as to why this BS is happening I will unhappily unsubscribe from this application.
So disappointed
by Adamdavid123459 on 2020/03/13 17:43
I am so disappointed in this app for my child . I paid for a subscription, and after several months, can still not access the premium content. I tried to restore purchases many times yet it does not work. I have tried to contact highlights to get technical support, but highlights tells me to call Apple and is unwilling to help. They were not nice nor helpful...
Memories
by Emaaaniii_ on 2020/03/13 01:43
I used to love doing these as a kid!!! And I was so happy to find out that it was an app now. I’ve only had this downloaded for about 20 minutes and I’m addicted!! Bringing back childhood memories! Love it!
Like it
by Missbritt01 on 2020/03/12 02:44
I like it but it keeps crashing and i just paid for the subscription. Super frustrating.
Crashes, will not open and lost all my work
by Looks4Quality on 2020/03/09 10:47
Since the new “upgrade” this app that I paid for crashes, will not open, pushes me to sign up and try to pay AGAIN. It lost all my hours of work and is making me start over. Don’t waste your money. Find a different hidden picture game. It also forces you to work each picture before new content is given. There was one zombie type picture that was horrible.

I have loved this game since I was a child, but …
by ericthegreat16 on 2020/03/06 01:44
It is so frustrating that not all the puzzles are formatted to come up in landscape view. I have a nice new iPad Pro and use it primarily in landscape mode. Can Highlights look into this??

by Aubreeb123 on 2020/03/04 23:30
OK just is a full hour I hate this game guess what everybody say that just to remind you OK I’m definitely on the five but like why would you even be so mean to me I have a color picture of it and like people Willy so whoever made this game that is a bad game I don’t like it I’m sorry but just the game of it is not fun at all like oh my brother plays a role he doesn’t even know what it is well it’s definitely the baddest And you could’ve seen my face if you want to see my friend gave anyone the way but I still love me and you could’ve seen my face if you want to see my friend gave anyone the way but I still love you it’s 😭 I love you bye-bye
Spent money for nothing
by Msvanji on 2020/02/29 22:30
I paid for a year long subscription and don’t have access. I keep hitting restore purchases and it says there is nothing to restore.
Unsatisfied

Amazing

We have paper book copies of these and our whole family ages 6 and down love them. And even ya parents !!
Aww
by Kittychan156 on 2020/02/23 10:38
I’m highly disappointed you don’t have ANY free unlocked puzzles that you have to pay to play or you get snot... I use to love highlight books. I’d sit and play in them for hours. I still even have a few from my childhood. I’m highly disappointed this game is all about money though. Pay or DONT play.. so sad! 😒
App keeps force closing
by bballstopmodel on 2020/02/23 01:29
I have been enjoying the game but the app keeps force closing. I am becoming very frustrated because I have paid my money and this is the second time that this has happened.
Puzzles
by webbgirl on 2020/02/22 10:45
I signed up for the monthly and do you still great 1 puzzle a day??? Have to wait hours and hours before being able to play another. Have complained several times....not sure if it’s worth a monthly subscription as much as i have always love the game.

is just my opinion
by amaury Nobueno on 2020/02/20 20:20
i think that app should be free and i mean freeeee and than after few week offer the deal but is ensane to download and app that you dont know and right away u need to start a free trial but have to put ur credit card in it IS A FREE TRIAL WHY MY CREDIT CARD ?
Disappointing...what am I paying for
by Buffy GT on 2020/02/20 02:31
The app doesn’t turn on!! It starts out like it will get to the games part, but then it closes and sends you to the main screen of my phone!!!
App does not work!,
by lorenzyyy😊 on 2020/02/20 01:12
I purchased an annual subscription but every time I log in ,it asks me to subscribe again. I contacted customer support and still have not heard a response. Don’t waste your money.
Expensive
by aesthij101 on 2020/02/15 19:46
Update 2/15/2020: I have updated the app as the developer suggests in its latest response to me and the problem is still the same. All puzzles are locked for me. When I press the “Restore Purchases” option I get a “There’s nothing to restore” pop-up. Update 2/7/2020: When I wrote my first review I didn’t realize that I wasn’t getting the content that I paid for with my subscription. The app will not acknowledge that I have a subscription. I have emailed Highlights app customer service and in their response to my email they told me to email app customer service. I sent a second email and have yet to receive a response. The developer responded to my initial review. I am hoping they will respond to this updated review and fix the issue I am having with this $30 app that is not working. Original review: Way way too expensive for what you get. And no way to get a partial refund once autopay debits. I don’t understand how it has such a high average rating when all of the more recent ratings are 1-star.
Solution STILL DOES NOT WORK
by Unhappy Papa. on 2020/02/14 11:15
I’ve done everything instructed for latest version 1.3.8. Restore does not work -“nothing to restore.” Just give me my money back and let’s break up. Frustrating!!!
More puzzles
by MontYsela on 2020/02/12 21:44
I have paid for more puzzles and it has charged my card but the app shows i have not paid. Extremely disappointed
Save Your Money
by Tmac8859 on 2020/02/12 07:11
I was just looking for some Hidden Pictures games and the apps I saw for free were not even what I was looking for so when I searched it came up with Highlights and I remember as a kid their find the hidden items pics were great, well these are not and totally NOT worth $30! I would like my money back if possible.
Purchasing doesn't work
by 1HowardRoark on 2020/02/08 18:16
My daughter loves the hidden puzzles in the physical Highlights magazine so I tried out the subscription here. Trial worked fine but as soon as I began being charged, I lost access and it would prompt me to log in again and then told me there was no purchase to restore. Terrible experience and customer service wasn't able to help. I'd recommend sticking with the daily free puzzle and avoid the headache of paying for nothing.
Love it but app won’t open anymore
by parryotter394 on 2020/02/05 23:31
This is definitely my favorite app. I am not a child, but I don’t care. I love it. But now I can’t play it anymore. The app acts like it’s loading, then closes. I’ve tried deleting it and reinstalling, which worked for about 3 days. Tried restarting my phone, checking for a new update, closing out of it completely and reopening, and still nothing. Pleeeease fix it, I’m having withdrawals 😩 (Not really, but still, please let me play again) 5 stars for the game, 1 star out of frustration that I can’t play.
Can only access 1 puzzle per day
by Chamby4054 on 2020/02/04 03:58
Subscribed annually but can only access 1 puzzle per day and the app claims that we have access to 125+ puzzles per day? There’s no phone number to call and when I click on app support nothing happens??
Not free to play!!!
by Pj2699 on 2020/02/02 03:48
Not just in app purchases. You HAVE to purchase to play!!! So disappointed.
Images are too small and can’t see items
by nana7007 on 2020/01/30 21:23
Times are not long enough and it does not encourage kids to do it properly. It’s easy to cheat by clicking randomly just to get 3 stars
Not a fan
by Keynote Powerpoint on 2020/01/27 19:06
Not a fan of the fact that they charge for this. Why would I ever pay for this when there’s more just like it for free. What a shame.
good app but bad function
by powerpuffツバサ on 2020/01/25 03:18
I had already subscribed to this app 2 weeks already, but I didn't get all of the puzzles unlocked. It still had the "GET STARTED" button despite the fact I already paid the subscription. Highlights Developers, could you please take the time to review my complaint? Thank you!
Subscription doesn’t work
by jonhagop on 2020/01/22 04:54
Got to play one game then was prompted to Subscribe. Subscribed and the purchase was processed (it appeared in my list of iTunes subs) but it didn’t unlock the app. Tried rebooting the app, nothing. Even tried unsubscribing and reaubscribing, still didn’t work. Ridiculous!
Should not be listed as free.
by SIOphilic on 2020/01/19 07:50
You really should notify people before they download the app that they need to buy a subscription to play the game at all. Like I understand why a subscription is there, but I don’t like the fact that I wasted my storage and data to download a game I can’t even play without spending money.
Good game but....
by purrlandmiyagi on 2020/01/18 04:58
Will suddenly stop and no longer will the game reopen. You have to delete the app and start all over again. This is the second time it’s happened which is a shame as I got far and don’t want to go through all those hidden games to get back to where I was only for it to happen a third time. Will be canceling my subscription.
Was great not so much now
by cmbeb90 on 2020/01/17 04:58
I purchased a yearly subscription but I don’t get to access or even play any other the other puzzles. I only get to do the daily one and when I click to search in different categories it says I have to pay. Which I already paid $29.99 for the year. I click on restore and it does absolutely nothing. It was a big waste of hard earned money!
Dumb
by Abcdefghijklmnop❤ on 2020/01/17 03:33
Who creates a game like this where no one can play without paying😑 like if this game was that interesting and worth wasting money on

Paid for subscription still prompts for purchase.
by kollross4 on 2020/01/16 03:50
My son has an iPad with his own (child) Apple ID that is tied to my family account. Subscribed to the yearly subscription (billed) but every time he opens the app it asks to choose a monthly or yearly subscription plan. Selecting “restore purchase” has no affect. Selecting yearly plan and going to the steps produces a message saying I’m subscribed through 2021.
Won’t load
by Disneyroo on 2020/01/15 06:19
I’ve been enjoying this immensely until this last fe days. It won’t load to play the pictures. I have a paid annual subscription. What’s going on????
Bring music back
by Mcclaincs on 2020/01/12 16:33

$30+ app just to be able to play
by edu-12 on 2020/01/10 22:23
Why don’t be honest and said the app cost $30 instead claim its a free app. Insane subscription rate per year. Usually not write reviews but if i was able i will no star to this trash app
Demasiado Dinero
by EboniAnnais on 2020/01/09 21:56
Solo pues hacer uno cada cierto tiempo y si quieres más, tienes q pagar, yo pague la subscriptions por 3.99 para que me dieran más de 25 juegos y no me dieron nada, aún no se si me lo vayan a cobrar 😡
Terrible
by roselilyfun on 2020/01/04 17:50
This stupid game charged me 30$ for a stupid subscription. I canceled and called and no refund. Ridiculous.
Liked the old app
by monof22015 on 2020/01/04 13:05
My daughter has the older version, which I had a subscription to. My son wanted it on his iPad, so I had to put the new version on his. Had to sign up for ANOTHER subscription, since it’s a different version. It won’t load the puzzles. It says I need a subscription, but when I try to buy a subscription it says I already have one, but won’t load the puzzles. Over and over... I’ve tried deleting the app and starting all over, all to no avail.
Keeps Crashing
by Jen Calcano on 2020/01/02 01:39
I absolutely LOVE this app. It’s very entertaining. However, I haven’t been able to use it for a couple of weeks. I’ll click on the app. It’ll load, then crash. The first time this happened, I deleted the app, downloaded it again and had to start from scratch. It’s disappointing because I paid for the year subscription and I haven’t been able to use it. I’m giving a three-star because when I’m able to use it it’s great. I just wish the app would work.
Game not working
by BrittPaulina on 2019/12/29 00:35
I signed up for the game and it won’t let me play anything but the daily challenge. 😒
Purchased but still only get 1 puzzle
by 4Qui on 2019/12/22 22:28
Purchased this game. Downloaded it, shows my account but still I’m only getting 1 game a day. Even tried the restore, delete and redownload, nothing works. Plus I purchased on a weekend so no tech support. Then I finally get to a website and to submit a ticket you have to enter your mailing address... for an APP! I’ll be refunding. No fun if you don’t get what you paid for. I expected more from Highlights.
Rip off
by kiroarous on 2019/12/17 02:25
It says free, the first thing it does, it asks you for your birthday to get you online for a $20+ subscription, and when you reject that, you get 1, that’s right, just 1 picture to work on.
Something is wrong...

I purchased the annual subscription because I didn’t want to wait 24 hrs for each puzzle. I wanted to do the puzzles whenever I wanted to but I still can’t get more than one puzzle a day. I tried to email the company but still haven’t heard...
Could be good
by lolipop00029 on 2019/12/01 04:05
When I first downloaded this game I thought it would be great but turns out you have to an expensive pay for a subscription or you only get one puzzle EVERY 24 HOURS. 😕 I would not recommend this game to anyone because honestly no one wants to pay for their kid to find objects hidden in a picture. I deleted this game for this reason. Sorry for the negative feedback but it needed to be said. Hope this changes in the future.
Doesn’t work
by tw.sa.fan on 2019/11/24 19:05
Purchased the one year subscription for my daughter. I had to delete and download twice. It still will not work. We did not get the 125 instant puzzles. Every time I click on something it asks if I want to sign up. Very frustrating and I will be canceling my subscription.
Was great, now won’t open
by lbaker84 on 2019/11/13 11:16
The app was great until three days ago when it won’t open and now crashes every time I try to open it.
Great game but not worth paying for!
by SplashQueen612 on 2020/05/06 03:30
I enjoyed Highlights magazine throughout my childhood so I didn’t hesitate to subscribe to play this game. It was great at first but now it continues to crash. When I delete the app and download it again, all of my progress is gone. Even if I sign in, my progress is not there. I don’t like having to redo the same pictures over and over. If I’m paying for something, I expect acceptable quality. There are also a few boards with glitches where the item isn’t even visible in the picture unless you use the hint button, then it magically appears on the screen. Good app, needs work, not worth paying for. I’m deleting for good since it crashed again for the 3rd time and didn’t save anything.
Good game. Fun but frustrating
by Caposey on 2019/07/20 11:56
I like the game but my one complaint would be that it crashes more than any app I’ve EVER had. Very frustrating. I’ve had to delete and install it several times. I’ve had to start over because the first time didn’t save my progress )I almost quit then. Maybe should have) I’m about to do it again because it just crashed but it’s going to be the last time I do this And now after reading the other reviews it is CLEARLY an ongoing problem that they can’t seem to fix and obviously don’t care to fix. Just get your money and go right? I’m sorry but all other apps manage to make it work. AND you are charging for this? The more I type the more frustrated I get so I’ll stop.
I agree fun and frustrating
by kploveshermjs on 2020/04/26 20:03
I agree with others who have commented. Myself and my 7 year old love playing this app unfortunately the app will just stop working after awhile. I have reinstalled this app twice and each time it will work very well and then all of a sudden you can’t get back in the app. Seems like this is a problem that’s been going on for a while and hasn’t been fixed. I have canceled my subscription but will check back at another time to see if they have figured out the glitch. The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is because of the glitch.
Best Game Ever!!!!!
by xoMissDiorxo on 2020/04/09 11:18
This is the BEST game of ALL the game apps that I’ve ever played! I’m so addicted! This Hidden Puzzle Game was made so well! The items are so cleverly hidden in the awesome art work. I only found this game app through my son’s hidden puzzle book & thought I’d give it a try since we have so much fun finding the hidden puzzles together. It’s really a FUN game for all ages. So worth the prescription. I would really recommend it & I never right reviews but it’s just so good that I had let people know.
Very Unhappy!
by emb4705 on 2020/05/16 03:28
I love the puzzles, was excited to download the app and happy to pay the annual subscription fee. But I’ve had the app for only a couple of weeks and this is the fourth time it’s crashed. Every time it gets to a certain number of new puzzles it crashes and I have to delete the app and re-install. I lose all of those puzzles and end up re-doing the same puzzles from scratch again and again. Enough already! There are enough of the same complaints being written - why can’t you fix this problem? This would be 5 stars plus, but I have to rate it a zero because of the constant crash problem. Please fix it so I can keep playing.
Love it but app won’t open anymore
by parryotter394 on 2020/02/05 23:31
This is definitely my favorite app. I am not a child, but I don’t care. I love it. But now I can’t play it anymore. The app acts like it’s loading, then closes. I’ve tried deleting it and reinstalling, which worked for about 3 days. Tried restarting my phone, checking for a new update, closing out of it completely and reopening, and still nothing. Pleeeease fix it, I’m having withdrawals 😩 (Not really, but still, please let me play again) 5 stars for the game, 1 star out of frustration that I can’t play.
Hidden objects
by 6xzwinston on 2020/05/19 01:54
Love the game even as an adult. But it does keep crashing. If they can come up with such picture games they could at least fix the crashing problem. You have to delete game the reinstall and sometimes it lets you sign into your account other times it doesn’t. If you pay for a year you should be able to play without it crashing every other week! Please fix this game
This seems really bogus
by idontwantanother1 on 2020/03/14 03:37
This is my first time writing a review for anything. I was so delighted to find this app. Highlights was something I used to always enjoy as a child and the fact that I found the app to play as many puzzle games as a I wanted seemed so much fun. It’s been over a week I haven’t been able to even open the app. It just shuts out by itself. When I looked up the application on the App Store it said it had to be updated (which I did). And guess what? The freakin app still didn’t load. If I don’t get a reasonable explanation as to why this BS is happening I will unhappily unsubscribe from this application.
AubreE
by Aubreeb123 on 2020/03/04 23:30
OK just is a full hour I hate this game guess what everybody say that just to remind you OK I’m definitely on the five but like why would you even be so mean to me I have a color picture of it and like people Willy so whoever made this game that is a bad game I don’t like it I’m sorry but just the game of it is not fun at all like oh my brother plays a role he doesn’t even know what it is well it’s definitely the baddest And you could’ve seen my face if you want to see my friend gave anyone the way but I still love me and you could’ve seen my face if you want to see my friend gave anyone the way but I still love you it’s 😭 I love you bye-bye
Keeps Crashing
by Jen Calcano on 2020/01/02 01:39
I absolutely LOVE this app. It’s very entertaining. However, I haven’t been able to use it for a couple of weeks. I’ll click on the app. It’ll load, then crash. The first time this happened, I deleted the app, downloaded it again and had to start from scratch. It’s disappointing because I paid for the year subscription and I haven’t been able to use it. I’m giving a three-star because when I’m able to use it it’s great. I just wish the app would work.
Great, but keeps crashing
by JPJPJP7728 on 2020/05/22 00:00
This app is great, I love it. But it’s now crashing and won’t open every time I try to open it. This happened before and I had to delete it and reinstall it, but it deleted all my data. I don’t want to have to do that again. Please fix whatever bug is making it continue to crash every time it gets opened.
Bunch of thieves
by nickname9765789 on 2020/04/22 19:00
Had this app on two different iPads (mine and my wife’s) for our two kids. Worked no problem. After updating, can only play on my wife’s iPad since she is the one who bought the subscription. If my other child wants to play, it would cost an additional 30 dollars for the year. Bogus that you can family share the app but not the subscription. Complete rip off to pay 60 dollars for two kids to play. Completely not worth it. And now you’ve ruined my kids day during quarantine. Thanks Highlights!
Love it but it keeps crashing
by Flippurss on 2020/05/10 02:40
My wife and I play this game every night and we always get to turtles then the app crashes and we can’t even open it up again. I even got a new phone and still doesn’t work. It’s disappointing cause as I said it’s was a nightly ritual for us. I’m just going to stop subscription and maybe find another game. Other than that the game was really fun.
Puzzles
by webbgirl on 2020/02/22 10:45
I signed up for the monthly and do you still great 1 puzzle a day??? Have to wait hours and hours before being able to play another. Have complained several times....not sure if it’s worth a monthly subscription as much as i have always love the game.
Nostalgia
by Nehazel on 2019/07/08 01:13
Highlights was one the best parts of my childhood and the hidden pictures was my favorite part! This brought me back to fond memories of sitting and doing these with my parents. It taught me to patience, determination, and how to have a keen eye. Thank you Highlights for the many smiles you have provided me over the years!! :)
Great while it lasted
by Recovering One on 2019/07/10 15:08
I started and had a subscription for a few months with no problems. All of a sudden it wouldn’t open. I decided I probably needed to remove it and download again. Unfortunately, my email address wasn’t attached so I started over. After playing awhile yesterday, the app crashed. Following that it won’t open at all, even today. I’ve reloaded it and it’s still crashing after I’ve logged in. I canceled my subscription, but it’s super frustrating. 🙄
Not enough puzzles for a monthly subscription
by JChachS on 2020/05/24 05:49
The old app was so much better. You could also reset all puzzles. After you finish all of the categories, you’re paying $3.99 a month for one daily puzzle. Also, you have to constantly turn your tablet since the pictures are both horizontal and vertical. Not worth it. 😔
Not worth the money
by Lcriner on 2020/05/14 00:36
This game does not save progress I’ve played the same levels so many different times that I’m over it, it does not open levels after the stars are reached and when it does and u exit out you have to start all over again. I’m over it this is very frustrating and a complete waste of time and my day.
Liked the old app
by monof22015 on 2020/01/04 13:05
My daughter has the older version, which I had a subscription to. My son wanted it on his iPad, so I had to put the new version on his. Had to sign up for ANOTHER subscription, since it’s a different version. It won’t load the puzzles. It says I need a subscription, but when I try to buy a subscription it says I already have one, but won’t load the puzzles. Over and over... I’ve tried deleting the app and starting all over, all to no avail.
Screen cuts off
by aileen5798 on 2020/04/12 23:17
It’s hard to see what objects I need to find and what they look like because it cuts off the screen on the IPhone 11. Someone needs to fix this if they have us paying subscription for puzzles. Plus if you don’t buy the subscription you can only do one small puzzle every 5-6 hours!
App Glitches
by High_PointThreat on 2020/05/02 07:43
This app glitches more than ever! My child would complete one board and it would glitch and erase all of her progress. She finally reached “I guess” the end of the board and it glitched closed out and we are still unable to reopen app. I’ve already emailed a complaint in the past, and now it’s to the point where I just want to be reimbursed. Im definitely canceling my subscription.
Crashes, will not open and lost all my work
by Looks4Quality on 2020/03/09 10:47
Since the new “upgrade” this app that I paid for crashes, will not open, pushes me to sign up and try to pay AGAIN. It lost all my hours of work and is making me start over. Don’t waste your money. Find a different hidden picture game. It also forces you to work each picture before new content is given. There was one zombie type picture that was horrible.
Purchasing doesn't work
by 1HowardRoark on 2020/02/08 18:16
My daughter loves the hidden puzzles in the physical Highlights magazine so I tried out the subscription here. Trial worked fine but as soon as I began being charged, I lost access and it would prompt me to log in again and then told me there was no purchase to restore. Terrible experience and customer service wasn't able to help. I'd recommend sticking with the daily free puzzle and avoid the headache of paying for nothing.
Could be good

Love the game, but keepsessing up after I get so far!!
by ReDDhead 81 on 2019/06/22 17:20
Yeah absolutely love this game although I must say it’s for “older” kids!! Also this is my third time downloading it cause it keeps getting stuck and then I lose all the progress I made!! That makes me really mad! So here I go for the 3rd time around on a game I have to pay for monthly that keeps shutting down on me!!
Review
by justlailah on 2019/06/16 01:24
Hello I’m Lailah and I’m loving this app!!! I like doing this now that it is summer! Before I was soo bored but when I got my 44 highlights book in the mail I did the hidden pictures then I said why not get the app? So now I love this sooo much thank you so much highlights this is my review
Great old game
by AlishiaMD on 2020/05/19 02:48
So I’ve got three stars on all of them but now I’m done with all the ones given. Will highlights be coming out with more hidden puzzles for this app? I don’t want to keep paying for nothing new...
Purchased but still only get 1 puzzle
by 4Qui on 2019/12/22 22:28
Purchased this game. Downloaded it, shows my account but still I’m only getting 1 game a day. Even tried the restore, delete and redownload, nothing works. Plus I purchased on a weekend so no tech support. Then I finally get to a website and to submit a ticket you have to enter your mailing address... for an APP! I’ll be refunding. No fun if you don’t get what you paid for. I expected more from Highlights.
Good game but....
by purrlandmiyagi on 2020/01/18 04:58
Will suddenly stop and no longer will the game reopen. You have to delete the app and start all over again. This is the second time it’s happened which is a shame as I got far and don’t want to go through all those hidden games to get back to where I was only for it to happen a third time. Will be canceling my subscription.
How to Cancel
by Federal st on 2019/06/12 22:09
Unfortunately my granddaughter is too young for this. My mistake. I got it thinking she’d love it but my mistake. Trying to cancel but can’t find how on site or settings. Can you help. It’s really a marvelous activity if age appropriate. Thank you
So disappointed
by Adamdavid123459 on 2020/03/13 17:43
I am so disappointed in this app for my child . I paid for a subscription, and after several months, can still not access the premium content. I tried to restore purchases many times yet it does not work. I have tried to contact highlights to get technical support, but highlights tells me to call Apple and is unwilling to help. They were not nice nor helpful...
Fun game, but better without it crashing
by crystal2blessed on 2020/03/25 03:52
I have deleted and installed this app over six times, playing the same games over and over. Every time I reach a certain level, it crashes. 😡
Money money money
by Suagismybias93 on 2020/04/12 18:31
This game would be fantastic if it didn't make you pay. Like you can only do ONE puzzle and then if you want to do more you have to pay and paying for a child's puzzle game is ridiculous. Also I could literally find worksheets of this and print it out with my printer. It's the same result except free soooooo.
Memories
by Emaaaniii_ on 2020/03/13 01:43
I used to love doing these as a kid!!! And I was so happy to find out that it was an app now. I’ve only had this downloaded for about 20 minutes and I’m addicted!! Bringing back childhood memories! Love it!
It stops working
by Mary427987ffff on 2019/07/15 15:49
I love playing with this app, but for the second time it has quit working. When I try to open it the icon starts to open but the disappears. I reinstalled it the first time but lost all the new puzzles I had unlocked. Frustrating.
Poor customer support
by racerdad55 on 2020/05/04 21:14
I purchased the online app. But I cannot log into the website because it asks for a customer number that is found on a magazine mailing label. I don’t have a magazine mailing label because I don’t have a magazine! I can’t get through the customer support page. It tells me I already have an active chat session, but I don’t! 😕
Amazing
by sabbymendez on 2020/02/24 03:47
We have paper book copies of these and our whole family ages 6 and down love them. And even ya parents !!
Paid for subscription still prompts for purchase.
by kollross4 on 2020/01/16 03:50
My son has an iPad with his own (child) Apple ID that is tied to my family account. Subscribed to the yearly subscription (billed) but every time he opens the app it asks to choose a monthly or yearly subscription plan. Selecting “restore purchase” has no affect. Selecting yearly plan and going to the steps produces a message saying I’m subscribed through 2021.
Save Your Money
by Tmac8859 on 2020/02/12 07:11
I was just looking for some Hidden Pictures games and the apps I saw for free were not even what I was looking for so when I searched it came up with Highlights and I remember as a kid their find the hidden items pics were great, well these are not and totally NOT worth $30! I would like my money back if possible.
Glitch
by Rese7 on 2020/05/14 00:10
I Love this game but every time I get past a certain level it freezes and stops working. I then have to delete it and re download it and my progress is never saved! Ugh.....
Fun Game
by kkay6 on 2020/03/17 03:44
I love this game! I have beat all 125 puzzles. I would like more puzzles to become available soon or I will unsubscribe because there’s no point on paying for a game I have beat!
I have loved this game since I was a child, but …
by ericthegreat16 on 2020/03/06 01:44
It is so frustrating that not all the puzzles are formatted to come up in landscape view. I have a nice new iPad Pro and use it primarily in landscape mode. Can Highlights look into this??
Should not be listed as free.
by SIOphilic on 2020/01/19 07:50
You really should notify people before they download the app that they need to buy a subscription to play the game at all. Like I understand why a subscription is there, but I don’t like the fact that I wasted my storage and data to download a game I can’t even play without spending money.
Awesome Game
by Ashleigh1108 on 2020/04/19 14:31
I absolutely love this game. It’s so relaxing to play. I love completing one category and getting surprised with the next category. I would have rated this app a 5 but after the recent update, the app will not open on my phone.
good app but bad function
by powerpuffツバサ on 2020/01/25 03:18
I had already subscribed to this app 2 weeks already, but I didn't get all of the puzzles unlocked. It still had the "GET STARTED" button despite the fact I already paid the subscription. Highlights Developers, could you please take the time to review my complaint? Thank you!
Disappointing
by Sunni01114 on 2019/11/13 02:27
The app was great until it crashed. I had to delete it and download again only for it to not recognize me and the progress I’d made. It wouldn’t identify my email, even after emailing me a password reset. Also wouldn’t restore from my Apple ID. I’m disappointed and frustrated after loving these puzzles as a kid.
Brings me back to my childhood!
by Andreajyn on 2020/04/12 21:45
I loved seeing these on the magazine as a kid, now I have it on my phone! Good way to pass the time!
Aww
by Kittychan156 on 2020/02/23 10:38
I’m highly disappointed you don’t have ANY free unlocked puzzles that you have to pay to play or you get snot... I use to love highlight books. I’d sit and play in them for hours. I still even have a few from my childhood. I’m highly disappointed this game is all about money though. Pay or DONT play.. so sad! 😒
Doesn’t work

Purchased the one year subscription for my daughter. I had to delete and download twice. It still will not work. We did not get the 125 instant puzzles. Every time I click on something it asks if I want to sign up. Very frustrating and I will be canceling my subscription.
