Hi
by LYida grace @ ldcpsdfgr on 2019/11/21 13:57
I like your puzzles but I’m only ten so I don’t have a lot of money to pay for the other puzzles so I think you should give more FREE options, if you can I will bump up your rating to five stars!!!!!!!👍🏻😁if we have got a deal than show me a sine pretty please 🥺. ( p.s I don’t really know how these things work but I think it’s like a text) good by for now
Newest version major faults
by zzxzzx $&* on 2019/11/21 12:51
Lost all data and existing puzzles due to freezing of screen. Version has side trays which grab pieces if one moves them too close to a side tray. If the correct location for a given piece is close to side tray, entire puzzle freezes and one must uninstall to reset. Don’t seem to be able to rid oneself of stupid side trays. Buy a different puzzle.
Enjoying Game
by BKWRM::)) on 2019/11/21 11:08
11/21/19: Loving the updated Objectives! 5/15/19: Everything seems to be working smoothly. Thank you! On my wish list: more free credits. Only 10 free credits every 4 hours is kind of sad. Update 2019.4.2 did not resolve issue with daily puzzle not working.

Awesome game, easy to play
Fun
by Nellyhill on 2019/11/21 07:25
A fun way to waste the day away.
Unhappy with new version
by Lesliedu88 on 2019/11/21 04:51
I used to play this every day. I would open my puzzles and work awhile and then save it for later. I understand you need ads, and I would live with one upon opening a free puzzle. But having ads every time I open one I have downloaded is too much. I open the file for my saved puzzles, and that film symbol is like a lock on it. I just don’t open it, and I close the app and move on to another game. Please give me my saved puzzles back.
Newest update MEH
by SHS_Girl on 2019/11/21 04:33
Not a fan of this newest update. There’s less room for the pieces on the sides of the board with all the new features. The tray takes up space and doesn’t seem like a necessary feature. Maybe have an option to turn it off. The pull up menu button is a lot bigger now and also takes up too much space vs the small circle it used to be. The new backgrounds are very distracting making it harder to see the puzzle pieces. The old backgrounds were nice and unobtrusive. I’ll be taking a break from this game until/if they fix these issues
Latest update
by KrunArnold on 2019/11/21 04:32
I I have played this ap for years. You have the best game as far as puzzles all of I do not like the trays on the side. They are in the way and serve no purpose for me. Cant you make it so it can be turned off?a sudden is there a pop up ad for gambling? If this continues I may have to quit and try find another puzzle game
Loved it before the update
by Kavyoh on 2019/11/21 03:39
I do really love this app and I still use it a lot but I’m upset they got rid of the objectives and tracking system. You used to be able to see which puzzles you’ve completed and with how many pieces. There was a star above each puzzle that you could click and it showed a check next to each difficulty you’ve completed the puzzle on. I miss this feature so much. I don’t understand why they got rid of it.
Bad update
by Shylogirl on 2019/11/21 02:37
I loved this app and would give it 5 stars however the new update that added trays you can’t remove completely brings it down to a 3. We should be able to remove everything except the puzzle and pieces from the screen. Too much clutter now. Also the objectives will not go away. They keep popping up. What used to be my favorite game has now become so annoying. Don’t keep adding crap without options to completely disable or hide them. Changes just keep getting worse
Great App!!
by jangay73 on 2019/11/21 02:36
Thoroughly enjoy this app!! The offerings of different puzzles is terrific and prices are really reasonable for all you get! Have tried several other puzzle apps to only be very disappointed with their layouts and HIGH prices!! This is the best puzzle app out there!!!
Get rid of new thing
by poi,,, on 2019/11/21 01:06
How do I get rid of the dam tray thing on the left side of the screen???? What a frustrating new addition to this game. GET RID THIS CRAP PLEASE.
Ads are ruining it
by Wally144 on 2019/11/21 00:52
This puzzle app works well and has a lot of good puzzles. But the required advertisements are the most intrusive I have ever encountered. They are extremely long and you have to watch the whole thing every time you load a free puzzle, even if you have been working on the same puzzle before.
New add requirement is irritating
by Happy Go Luckier on 2019/11/20 23:40
I used to enjoy these puzzles. I kind of like the “piggy bank” they have added, although I am not certain why or to what advantage. The reason I gave it so low a score, now I have to watch an add to select a puzzle, to start the puzzle and if I left it, to rejoin it. Truly considering uninstalling and finding another puzzle game.
Review
by kribbage on 2019/11/20 23:11
I’m not liking the new update where we have to watch ads before doing the puzzles. If there is one thing I would change, that’s it.
Jigsaw
by Miyo62 on 2019/11/20 22:39
Once you select hold, it doesn't hold. It keeps flipping back and forth. It s very frustrating. Why can't you fix it. I don't like the way the commercials keep popping up when the puzzle is a timed application. I've been so frustrated with that I've seriously considering quitting jigsaw altogether. I agree with the comments above including QUITTING jigsaw. My problem among others is when I saving the puzzle to play the commercial goes on and on an it adds to the time of completing the puzzle. Time is a factor for me as we complete to see who can complete quickest. Also when I save the "free puzzle" it saves to the same two puzzles over and over. So you can't tell what you have saved so you have to keep opening them. I don't always finish a puzzle in one sitting. Doesn't anyone review the updates? I hate in updating this app for fear what I'm going to get. Help with these problems. Don't ask for comments unless you're willing to fix them. When I save a the free puzzle it saves it with the same picture icon so I can't find it again. Fix it. It is a concern to do updates for fear what your going to get. The last update is terrible. Wish I didn't update it. All comments above needs to be corrected. What good is free puzzles if you can’t save them or it saves them to another puzzle I don’t like the set up. Once you save a puzzle it disappears and you have to hunt for II. I don’t like the set either. Seems like with ever update I like it less. The trays are useless. Remove them, they get in the way.
Great puzzle app
by MacawMama on 2019/11/20 21:22
Thanks for fixing the issue with the rewards. This is my favorite app. Very relaxing and beautiful puzzles. Love the options for different amounts of pieces and rotate. Lots of options for purchasing new puzzle packs.
Error
by bcgmhgchgjgcjh on 2019/11/20 19:29
No puzzles will load to play. This jigsaw puzzle will no longer let me order new puzzles just blanket and what I have ordered the screen shows blank can not order or play these puzzles
Missing puzzles
by *no*nick*name*for*me on 2019/11/20 19:21
Ok things settles down after the last update. Please stop adding new stuff that just gets in the way. I do not care for those puzzles trays. They’re annoyances. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it or add useless things. P.S. Still my favorite puzzle app. Your still a five *
Good Brain Food
by S. Conover on 2019/11/20 14:33
I love this puzzle app. My wife introduced me to it. You can make the puzzles as hard or easy as you wish. You won't regret adding this to your game folder. Get it! Update 11-20-2019: I still enjoy this puzzle app. The most recent update includes tabs attached trays for sorting pieces. These get in the way on my iPad. Not enough screen real estate available to be taken up by the tray tabs. Yes they can be minimized but cannot be turned off. It is my hope that in the next update these trays have the option to turn off. Don’t force us to always have to stumble over the tabs that take up too much space.

Very relaxing

I don’t like to be forced to view advertising before I can play. Occasionally is okay but not every time I open the app to play. Update: This is an update rating. You fixed the ad issue I didn’t care for. You are back as my favorite. Thanks for listening!!!
Latest update no good
by tempann on 2019/11/20 04:19
Like so many others I’ve had nothing but problems with your last update. Completed puzzles keep showing up as in progress, the app closes or freezes for no reason, hate the trays, and worst of all, it sucked up all of the free space in my iPad. Used to play daily but no more. Please fix this.
RMD - Jigsaw
by Doc D55 on 2019/11/20 01:46
19Nov19 I’ve been playing this App for years. At least six (6) years anyway. I have always enjoyed myself. None of the others Jigsaw Puzzle App’s have worked so well and work like a regular jigsaw puzzles is supposed to work. I give this App my highest Rating. Anyone who enjoys doing jigsaw puzzles will thoroughly enjoyed playing this App. I do have one small complaint. When sizing the displayed playing surface it does not move smoothly. Now this may be because of my tablet. I am using a 32 GB IPad Generation 6. However, on my pervious IPad with less memory and before the last update (on my current IPad) the sizing was very smooth. Now it jerky. But do not let me discourage anyone from using this App. It’s wonderful. Enjoy!!
It’s ok but...
by Babykuns on 2019/11/19 23:22
I love this game, I got it today and already finished 3 hard puzzles (And I was at school most of the day) It’s just that I HATE how whenever you want to do ANY puzzle you have to watch an ad
Love Jigsaw
by sharonann707 on 2019/11/19 22:09
But, I hate the trays, they get in my way, I lose pieces, then find them in a tray, I wish there was a choice to either use the trays or not.
I LOVE LOVE the trays that you put on here!!!🤩. Keep up the good work!!!!!😬

by smurfette 1992 on 2019/11/19 12:01
At first I did not like the trays, but now I really appreciate them-when doing a large amount of pieces it is a great way to subdivide your pieces. I love jigsaw and the variety offered. Keep up the great work!!!
Entretenido

Trays
by pdondjxjx on 2019/11/19 04:39
What I wouldn’t give to have the jigsaw puzzle game back fro a few years ago. Been playing this every night for at least 6 years. The trays are locking up my games or I don’t know how to figure them out. I don’t like that I turn my puzzle on to work on them only to find out my pieces have been put in trays! I’ve had pieces locked up a small distance from each other and can’t separate them to place them. Will drag a puzzle piece only to have it disappear into the pile. Miss my old puzzle game immensely! I’m sad about the changes
Please get this fixed...
by 1111shell1111 on 2019/11/19 03:55
I love this puzzle app, but it has really been having some issues lately. When the daily puzzle is downloaded (and you sit and watch the “forever” ad) the puzzle comes up with a black background and can’t be moved or made smaller or larger. I was able to restart the phone or exit the app, but not now. Please fix this, I love playing this when it works. Also, would love to have a landscape option. 🙏
Puzzle phenom
by barbara deangelis on 2019/11/18 22:10
It’s a great game but quite often the “rewards”get stuck and don’t work for days. But puzzles are interesting and varied, not at all mundane.
Favorite Ever UNTIL this last update
by cantrecallmyname on 2019/11/18 21:11
Unfortunately, this Favorite EVER app now has a Tabs added that cannot be turned off. Nice idea, BUT I keep accidentally adding pieces to tabs, which I then have to retrieve (and delete the newly added tabs!) This would be nice for an option IF I had the ability to turn it off... you have that option for many things like music, locking the screen so it doesn’t go past its edges, why not with this option??? It also takes up space on my limited size phone screen and hides pieces I’m looking for and haven’t realized I accidentally put into a tab.. or two or three!
THIS APP IS BROKEN
by SaraBellah on 2019/11/18 20:36
A few weeks ago, the app stopped recording your finished puzzles so they keep showing as In Progress. I haven’t tried deleting to see if that gets them out of that area. I emailed the developer - no response. I messaged the developer through Facebook & was told they’re working on it. They’ve released an update since then, but the problem continues and is actually worse. Now the app isn’t recording your progress. I was about 50% through a puzzle yesterday. I went back to it today and it doesn’t even show as started. In the time I’ve been playing this app, they’ve added enough to it that it now takes 15-20 seconds to load on my iPad. If it’s a fresh start (from completely closed - not open in the background), it won’t load on the first try. Usually takes two attempts to load it, but sometimes three. I have the paid version to get rid of the ads, but I still have to click out of their daily announcement of what’s on sale every time I go into the app. All these quirks have gotten old, more so now that the app is unreliable.
Restarting puzzles
by SueAaronn on 2019/11/18 19:48
Not very happy that previous puzzles seem to go back to start of the puzzle, not where they were left off.
Changes Not Necessary
by #2066 on 2019/11/18 17:41
Don’t care for your changes. No need to double tap to actually get to the main screen, it was fine before, If I chose that app. The trays you set up on the right side of the screen I don’t like, wish I could remove them or you can. Been playing a long time and found these changes cumbersome.
Love this app!
by BrittNMcD on 2019/11/18 17:34
This is one of the best puzzle apps by far! They always have sales going on and awesome packages! Plus, a nice assortment of free puzzles, and a new free puzzle daily! They also have EXCELLENT customer service. I purchased a puzzle pack a few weeks ago and it didn’t show up on my app, so I reached out and not only did someone get back to me in a timely manner, but the issue was instantly fixed, I got the puzzles I paid for AND they gave me 500 free credits! If you like puzzles, I definitely recommend this app, I play it daily! :)
Crashed
by Ev NYC on 2019/11/18 16:16
Normally I love this app and am on it every day. But last week it started having problems and then kept trying to load puzzles over and over and ate up all my data. I had to delete a lot of stuff from my iPad to get to where I could function again. And I had to delete the app entirely to stop it from doing it again. So now everything is back to normal except I lost the extensive list of completed puzzles. Not good.
Update killed my fave app
by litkjbb on 2019/11/18 16:16
Since the update the program constantly crashes, when I reboot, the puzzle I have been working on is gone and I have to start over. Very frustrating because it’s so fun and I love it but I’m afraid I’ve lost it.
Jigsaw trays
by Bobbiberry on 2019/11/18 16:15
First let me say I love this game. I start my day, everyday with a puzzle. I like the new update with the trays. The only downside which is minimal I suppose is the color of the tray background. I would like to be able to change it. Often if I put pieces in there they blend too much with the background and I can’t see them very well. The beauties of old age I guess. Keep up the good work!
Nice Puzzle
by pumpkin81776 on 2019/11/18 15:47
This this is the best puzzle
Now you have to watch more ads just to play
by k54321c on 2019/11/18 05:34
More ads, watching required for anything you want to do. Can’t even write a review without a nickname but they’re all “taken” so you give up before getting a chance to post the review.
Some features are brilliant!
by poppypuzz on 2019/11/18 02:44
I don’t like that the picture at the completion of the puzzle stays unlined for a second only. That does not give the player enough reward for completing the puzzle. I do like that we can make puzzles from our own photos! That is a great feature!
Jigsaw puzzle gather pieces
by carol in cincy on 2019/11/18 02:24
Would be a big plus to gather all the pieces into an area selected. Tap gather, then tap where you want them to be gathered.
Missing pieces
by MamaDuby on 2019/11/17 23:52
Some of the pieces were not there at the end! This is a terrible app!
Latest update
by AdawnL on 2019/11/17 19:07
I love this puzzle game BUT I’m NOT thrilled with the last update. I HATE the tray feature. I understand the idea BUT I would like it more if I am able to deactivate it. I would like the option to shooed to use it. I hate that when I’m sorting my pieces that so many end up in trays when I don’t want them to land there. SO!!!, could you please give up the option to have the tray on the board or deactivate it. ASAP please!
Make sorting trays optional
by phillypa329 on 2019/11/17 17:43
I loved the layout before the latest release. I don’t need sorting trays and want to be able to remove them. They take up real estate and I want it back. Make sorting trays a setting that the player can turn on or off.
So easy to use
by Mulching Mom on 2019/11/17 13:18
What I like about this game is the amount of choices you have to assemble the puzzle. It’s so great.
Be satisfied with success
by partypooperrex on 2019/11/17 07:29
I was hooked and would play for hours--even spent money on boards, but...I think I might be done now. They keep making changes, like adding "trays." Those aren't necessary and just cause distraction. This was great for relaxing but now players have to adapt every 2 weeks and that's stressful!!! You also changed the ad format so you have to sit through longer commercials and navigate around a new banner at the bottom. Too had, you had a good product just a few months ago.

Excellent puzzle choices. Would like to find out if there is a way to purchase real puzzles with any pictures that we choose! highrisebj@ gmail.com
Great puzzles! I love the puzzles and the trays are a big help!
by Baxter's mommy on 2019/11/17 03:57
I have so much more room to work now! Also, I haven’t gotten the pieces stuck when they move around the puzzles.
ADDICTING
by smile more 2002 on 2019/11/17 03:33
Honestly this app is very addicting, one day I was doing a color by number app and I got an add for this puzzle app. I decided to give it a go and now it’s one of my favorite apps! Everything was working good until earlier today. It keeps crashing after like 2 minutes, please fix!
Update
by kam1342 on 2019/11/17 03:15
I used to love doing these puzzles, however, ever since they did an update the puzzles keep freezing and the only way to fix it is to delete the puzzle. It gets very frustrating when you are almost done and you aren’t able to complete the puzzle. I am hoping that they resolve this issue.
Jigsaw Review
by Perk8141 on 2019/11/17 03:04
I love the puzzles, however recently, the screen has begun freezing every few minutes. Have to restart the puzzle each time only to have it freeze again. Very annoying!

Do not like the trays
by no tray fan on 2019/11/17 02:08
How do I get rid of the trays? If I cannot do this how do I go back to an earlier version?
Used to be a great app
by grandmadebi3 on 2019/11/17 01:26
When you put your finger on a puzzle piece to drag, you either (A) drag the piece, allowing you to move it to where it fits in the puzzle. Or (B) you move the puzzle frame. Moving the frame can be useful if you have zoomed in to get a closer look and part of the puzzle no longer fits on your screen. But sometime in the past month or so, the game changed. It’s now extremely difficult to drag a puzzle piece around because there is such a tiny difference between the touch required to do A and that required to do B. I’ve been hoping maybe I’d adjust, but no such luck. The game is now feeling like it’s almost too frustrating to bother with. I can’t fathom why the people making the game thought this would be a good change. Updated 9/5/19: recently, it has gotten so when you put your finger on a piece to try to move it, it’s more likely you’ll move another piece. You may have to move 5 or more pieces to finally be allowed to move the one you intend. Very frustrating. In November of 2019, they have added “trays” to help sort the pieces. This sounded like it might be useful, but no. They don’t hold enough pieces to hold a complete category. You can see only a few of the pieces in the tray. It’s more trouble than it’s worth. And they’re pushing it in a really obnoxious way. After experimenting with using the trays on several puzzles, and deciding not to bother in future, I tried to do a puzzle, but couldn’t complete it because there was a piece missing. Ugh! The game had hidden the piece in a tray where I couldn’t see it. I wish I could reload the version I had several years ago.
Love the puzzles Hate the trays and pop up coin advertisement
by Winter ash on 2019/11/17 01:13
Simple is better
There’s a glitch
by a Puzzle Person on 2019/11/17 00:58
I personally love this game one of the things I love about it isn’t working :( The glitch is making it so that my daily puzzle isn’t even an option, it just says that it never stops loading. But I do love the new sorting trays and look of the puzzles 😁
Fixed my frozen game
by bluejeanmamma on 2019/11/16 20:27
11/16/19 I followed instructions from my in game help person, and deleted my game, then reinstalled. All my purchases came back and the game hasn’t frozen since. I just tested it on a trip without WiFi and it worked perfectly. Took a bit to get my big game board back, but I finally noticed the box to check to get that size back. Thank you. This is my favorite puzzle app. It really makes me happy to be able to play it without problems. 10/17/19 Still frozen black screen Apparently it was wishful thinking that my game was fixed. I’m still getting the same black frozen game board as before. I was at a Dr. appointment and the app searched the entire time for WiFi. I closed the app several times and restarted my iPad, but nothing released it from searching for WiFi. Now that I am back home and connected to my own WiFi, the game has returned to normal. It is extremely important to me that I can play in situations where WiFi is not available. Please fix this. 10/5/19 I sent a message through the game, as requested. I never saw a response. However, I’ve just returned from a 4 day trip in an area where WiFi is not available for me to use, and I am happy to say that my game played correctly the entire time. No black background or frozen board, so I am returning the rating stars and adding one. At would seem that the last update made a huge difference in my game. I would like to add that I am NOT a fan of the new startup screen. It’s too Magic Puzzles for me. I liked it the way it was. I won’t drop a star for it though. 9/9/19 I would have loved playing my game in the waiting room of my doctors office. Unfortunately, it is not playable at all without being connected to WiFi. The app seems to be using all its power searching for WiFi that is not available. When you fix it, I’ll return the stars. 9-4-19 I’m removing a star until you fix the black background that occurs when there is no WiFi available. The screen is so dark that it’s impossible to see the boundary around the puzzle board and no matter how many times I closed the app or restarted my iPad, each time I went back into the game it showed the game was searching for WiFi and the black screen remained, making it impossible to play for the days I was without WiFi. I am regularly in areas where no WiFi is available, and I downloaded your puzzle specifically for those times. I have tried to contact you through the game about this previously but was never responded to. As soon as I hooked up to WiFi today the game returned to the right settings. Please fix this and I’ll gladly return the star. (Original review) I love the game board and being able to see all my puzzle pieces laid out. I love the puzzle packs that are offered. They meet my preferences on the type of puzzles I enjoy working perfectly. It took me a while to get used to how to best use the game board, but now I work puzzles every day using this app. I considered giving it 5 stars about four updates back, when my game worked wonderfully and without any quirks. However, the real thing that keeps me from giving it 5 stars and why I have waited so long to rate it are the puzzle piece shapes. The shapes of the pieces are what I consider more traditional. If they were more unusually shaped I would gladly give this 5 stars.
Great game. Bad update.
by Rachael1945 on 2019/11/16 20:20
Fix Tray please. Keeps locking puzzle up. Better yet, just get rid of it! Otherwise, terrific game. And, because I know you’ll fix this, I’m still going to give you 5 stars.
Good puzzle pack
by Reidly the super hero on 2019/11/16 19:13
I do not like the new format as much as the old one. I like it better when the pieces are spread in the middle and along the sides. Don’t use the trays at all, think they are a nuance. With all that said this is the BEST puzzle I have found. Thanks

Love, but.....
by Tmac123456 on 2019/11/16 18:42
I love this puzzle pack, the only issue I have is that it only gives 10 points per finished puzzle so you don’t have much opportunity to buy puzzle packs with earned coins. I refuse to pay hard earned cash on games especially being retired
Sorting trays
by Puzzle Pal25 on 2019/11/16 18:10
I do not like the new sorting trays. They get in the way and it will not let me delete all of them or turn them off.
Little glitch...
by HIBeach on 2019/11/16 17:40
My favorite app! Since the latest update, some unworked puzzle pieces have moved when I reopen it. I spend a few minutes putting them back - not a huge deal - just annoying. It’s never happened before. And I would like the option to use trays or not...I don’t like them.
Loved it for years until....
by SkiWithMe111 on 2019/11/16 17:03
I don’t know what’s going on. Worked great until the last update. It seems to have some new “tray” feature and it’s locked up on that and can’t do anything. I’ve tried deleting the tray to no avail. It’s a puzzle which was 85% completed and can’t access anything else. 🙁
Last update ruined app
by CABinAz on 2019/11/16 16:47
Last update destroyed this app. Barely works anymore and numerous glitches. Won’t save puzzles, kicks me out constantly and most features slowed to a snail’s pace or frozen and have to restart iPad. Was my favorite game app but now looking for a new puzzle app. Let me know if you go back to previous version(s) and I will play and purchase puzzle packs again. Sad ... 😔
Good but glitches
by spacecat 2 on 2019/11/16 16:29
The game is good but there is a glitch:I was playing today and I couldn’t find a piece so I pushed the hint button and it showed it at the top it but it wouldn’t let me move it and it wouldn’t let me touch it.I also have a suggestion: there should be more trays because I was playing a 100 piece puzzle and there are only 4 trays and it wouldn’t let me put more than 15 pieces in it and on all of the free puzzles you have to watch ads. If the piece moving glitch is fixed I would happily change my rate to 5 stars
Sorting trays
by GXHCZW on 2019/11/16 15:55
As with many apps, the developer looks to fix things that don’t need fixing. They have added sorting trays to the game. These cause pieces to disappear off of the board into unseen trays. There is no way to get rid of these, except buy a different puzzle app (that’s my suggestion).
Pick my own puzzles
by Irie 2 on 2019/11/16 15:51
While the latest updates have been great, I would like to pick individual puzzles and make my own puzzle pack. More often several of the puzzles in a pack are just undesirable.
It's delightful, but I have a few suggestions.
by Fltoner on 2019/11/16 15:28
Update, 11/16/19. I still like the puzzle and play one every day. I do not like the new feature of the “trays.” I realize some people may like them, but for me, they take up a bit of space and I wish I had the option to remove that from the screen. I like to arrange my pieces around the frame so they are all visible to me as I play the game. It’s a really nice game, though, and I still give it five stars. Update, 07/06/19: I finally figured out that when you earn enough “coins,” you can trade them in for a pack of puzzles. It seems to me that earlier, the free puzzle of the day was a really nice picture. Now, often they are somewhat amateurish and silly renderings of panoramas, not particularly lifelike and not really as enjoyable. Today’s was a mishmash picture of children at an English fair, and in addition to much indescribable detail, the children had old, adult features. Part of the fun is seeing a really pretty picture completed. Update, 01/09/19: I still love the puzzle, and do one every day, but now I am "gifted" "coins" -- I have no idea whatsoever what I am supposed to do with those "coins." Would love to know. My earlier reviews are the same. I've just upgraded with a purchase, not because I didn't like the puzzle as it exists in the free version, but just because I believe it is one of the nicest apps I have. It works flawlessly, doesn't freeze up, I could take the ads, as I understand that, absent a purchase, they pay for the free game. No; I'm not a shill. This is a totally spontaneous evaluation of this pleasant game. I'm an ordinary player and have no knowledge or affiliation with the authors of the game. *On 05/15/16 I paid $8.99 for the upgrade, which is exactly what was advertised. So even this objection was now removed. ===== However, first of all, the three backgrounds that come with it are sometimes incompatible with the puzzle -- that is, they need to be different in order to contrast well with the pieces that are laid out on it. I paid $8.99 for the upgrade, which came with extra backgrounds. And after I'd paid the $8.99 -- the backgrounds all became free! Now, As I try to use the greater variety of backgrounds, they are very incompatible with puzzle-making. Prints, weaves, backgrounds which themselves have very distracting patterns and decorations. And the ones that are plain are often fluorescent in nature. Really, practically, your backgrounds should all be plain, and vary from dark to pastel and white. That's all. That's what one wants when making a puzzle. The puzzle itself is just great, the way it works, responds, keeps your place, etc. But I hope the creators will think about this matter of the quality of the backgrounds they supply.
Sorting trays
by 10april on 2019/11/16 15:03
I LOVE the new sorting trays!! Only wish you’d have come up with it sooner...BEST IDEA EVER
New feature
by JCarlock on 2019/11/16 14:35
We need an option to turn the new tray off so we aren’t accidentally dragging pieces into it.
Super fun

Really great fun! And the updates are making it better and better !
Hate tray

Want remove tray now
Spending too much time trying to find my pieces!!!
by RNana1 on 2019/11/16 09:41
Spending too much time trying to find ALL my pieces!!! I can’t even finish my game!!!!! I have 1 piece missing so I can’t even finish the game!!! Was that your intention for players not to finish their game? This latest update with TRAYS is a disaster- not happy, I guess I will not be playing jigsaw puzzle when I can’t even find the last piece to play and finish the game. I am so disappointed in this jigsaw puzzle app with the latest update. AND WHAT IS WITH THE BLACK BACKGROUND? Why can’t I have the background of my choosing? I only have one option- BLACK. Are you guys really trying to tick off your long time loyal players? WHATS THE DEAL 😠 😡 😤
Only one thing and it’s a big problem
by GrandmaOf4+2 on 2019/11/16 09:36
There are plenty to pick from and a wonderful way to earn more without having to pay for packs I think. For every puzzle you complete you earn money and you can even choose to watch an add for money then when you have saved enough you can pick from several packs that have different amount of puzzles in them. I mostly get the the ones with around 30 puzzles in them. I love all the options that this game has, very little adds, great puzzles. I do not know how well this game works if you want to do more then 900 pieces because I stay around 400-600 for my grandchildren time and mine as well. Yes my grandchildren ages 3-10 play this game. Here is the 1 ONE thing if you leave the puzzle you are working on for to long it freezes up and you can not play it again IF it is a free daily game and you have to delete it. That will make a 6 year old have a melt down if they were almost done with it. Please fix this problem. My grandchildren will sometimes start a puzzle then can’t finish it, go home and come back the next weekend and frozen puzzle and I get the melt down. Other then that I would give this game a 5 star ⭐️. Thank you.
Bug fix needed
by The Bass on Which this Rock Was Built on 2019/11/16 08:54
After several restarts the problem is gone, thanks! I'd still appreciate a way to opt out of the trays in the playing area.
Great! Easy enjoyable

Frustrated
by StNich on 2019/11/16 05:11
I loved this App! THEN, I updated my iPad with the latest/newest version and now this App stinks! It closes before it will open. Pieces don’t respond to my touch. Pieces freeze and won’t unfreeze unless I completely get out of the App. Sooooo frustrating. I even deleted the app and added it again. All that did was erase all I had done in the app. I’m bummed.
This new update
by potrais on 2019/11/16 04:40
I am a senior citizen with failing eyesight. I absolutely hate this new update. The trays are a good idea, but not for me. I don’t like not being able to change my background when I want to. This black background is ludicrous. Any time you work with black areas of the puzzle it is very hard to see the black parts of the pieces. Another thing, with my eyesight degenerating, I need the regular size puzzle pieces. I was very happy with the previous version of this app. I am limited on how many puzzles I can do. Mainly a half, and on good days I can do the whole puzzle.
Very good puzzles

What happened to puzzles in progress?
by Jewelcc on 2019/11/16 03:04
I love this app and play often. But the last update deleted my entire library of puzzles in progress. I’m not really a fan of the new tray feature. It’s just one more item sitting on my screen taking up space. Is there an option to remove it?
To many ads
by top puzzle king on 2019/11/16 01:51
Puzzles are good. Constant ads has ruin this puzzle app.
Tray
by JayADub on 2019/11/16 01:48
I love the game, but they added a tray that is useless for me, and it takes up space around the puzzle which I used to sort the pieces. Now that space is lost to me and I cannot remove the useless tray.
Please do something about the trays
by laorbdyevaidhesj on 2019/11/16 00:06
In all honesty I love your app but these new trays aren’t something I’m fond of. I’d really like a way to get rid of them because it’s not something I like having. The trays are just in the way and aren’t of any use for others as well.
New and improved?
by tcheermom90 on 2019/11/16 00:05
I don’t like the new improved set up at all. I don’t like my pieces being scattered and pushed to the outskirts of the board and now I don’t know how to stop my screen from moving. I hated the upgrades!
Please fix this update!
by S/V Southern Girl on 2019/11/15 23:58
PLEASE give us the option to turn off the trays. It’s hard enough to grab pieces without the trays expanding across the table whenever I try to grab one near or under them. While we’re discussing the difficulty of grabbing pieces, let me mention that the recent update that made the bottom piece in a stack move when I want to move the top one (the one I choose because I can see it) is not welcome, either. Back down to three stars. The pieces now flash whenever joined to another piece, even if they are not correctly placed. Please put it back the way it was, so the flash only means a piece is where it is supposed to be. Please don’t ‘fix’ what’s working. ——————-$ Updated review: Last night’s app update fixed it. Back to five stars! Thank you! Just as others are experiencing, the pieces are now very hard to “grab”. Frustratingly, the whole puzzle usually moves instead of the piece. This has added 50% to my average time to just make the frame and made finishing the puzzle more of an ordeal than a fun pastime. Please fix, or “unfix”, this last update ASAP!!
Trays
by Precious6747 on 2019/11/15 22:46
I do not want, need or like the trays. I want to remove them if possible.
Love it!! ❤️
by Laurenperson on 2019/11/15 22:27
I love it!! I love I can choose the different piece count when I open a new beautiful picture!! So many selection and puzzles to choose! I would love to have a WISH LIST or some type of list to save packs I want to buy. That would make this perfect!!

by jdr4171 on 2019/11/15 22:13
I love the trays. I play these puzzles on my IPhone and the play area gets very crowded. I use the trays to sort and store until needed. Thanks for the new feature. jdr4171
Stop adding things!
by bikracer on 2019/11/15 22:10
I loved it until you made the board completely unstable, now even when you make the board as small as possible it moves all over so you can’t capture missing tiles. I also dislike the tray idea!

Jigsaw Puzzles
by Slightlysorry on 2017/12/04 20:12
I'll add my thoughts....I love jigsaw puzzles. The only problem in our house is that the hubby doesn't like to see the card table sitting out. This game takes care of that. I have had a great time getting into the swing of things....getting faster now though. Since I just upgraded I play the sound of waves and it is very relaxing. I love flowers and the color green so I make sure to have those puzzles to work on. I give this app an A plus. One more thing....I really enjoy using my own photos in a puzzle. I recently asked about sizing photos while using my own photos. My question was answered promptly and I really appreciate that. I really really love this app. So relaxing! Update: 11/17. I really appreciate this app going back to letting the player decide when to add the rest of the pieces after placing the edge pieces in the puzzle. I didn't appreciate it when one of the updates automatically added them after completing the edge pieces. Over all, I have spent many many hours of fun and relaxation with this app. By far the best of several I have tried. I have purchased a lot of puzzles but have had special enjoyment completing puzzles from my own pictures. I give this app A+. Update: December 4, 2017. I don't appreciate the newest upgrade where an instantaneous flash occurs when the correct piece is added. It is definitely annoying. I'd like to turn it off.
Update last week was ill conceived. Now improved, but still needs some work
by Trolley Molly on 2019/03/21 20:11
Update: they would appear to have been responsive to criticism and fixed the glitches in the new version! I have changed my rating from 2 stars to 4 stars. I still don’t like whatever they did to the feature that allows you to see the completed puzzle to figure where a piece goes. It lacks the look/feel of the last version. Not as user-friendly. Fix that and I’ll bump my review to 5 stars! Thank you! Previous review from last week: I don’t know what happened, but yesterday, when I got my new update, the look and feel was all wrong. It’s just not the same game. The pieces don’t respond to touch as well – I put my finger squarely on a piece and it doesn’t budge. I have to try to grab it over and over again. And unless I have the board locked, the board scoots around over the place instead of the pieces moving. (I like to have the board unlocked so I can shrink/expand and move it around to find the pieces I’ve stashed on the sides.) Also, the ability to see the completed puzzle to try to figure out where the piece goes has been changed. It’s now smaller than the game in progress, so it’s hard to see why the piece up. (My eyes aren’t great.) This is the only way I can solve some of the more difficult games. Please put back what you took out and/or take out what you put in yesterday. It was a five star game until then. If it doesn’t get fixed, I may have to look elsewhere...
Super Relaxing
by lalafor on 2018/02/24 15:38
I truly dislike leaving reviews. I have been doing these puzzles for several years. I finally decided to leave my thoughts about this app. I love it! The app itself is easy to maneuver through. I love hat you can make a puzzle simple enough for a 3 year old or challenging enough for your veteran puzzler. I love that you can turn the ability to rotate the pieces on and off. Sometimes I only have 10 or 15 minutes to do a puzzle so I keep it fairly simple. It helps my brain relax, so I continue on with my busy, hectic day. I'm OCD, so I have to be able to finish a puzzle before I leave. The pictures are awesome. I don't like spending money in apps, but I have in this one. I can't buy a hands on puzzle for 1.99, much less get 30 that I can actually do hundreds, if not thousands of ways. I can also use my own pictures too. What I don't love about the app is that there are so many pop ups for "Sales". I generally don't buy those. I go through the store and choose the ones that I want. The only other thing that I can think of is the backgrounds. I think there needs to be more neutral, calm backgrounds, or tables. I can only use a couple, the neon, or bright red ones make it so I can't even see the puzzles. That's not a big deal, just an opinion. I'm sure they work for others out there, just not me. Overall, it's a 5 Star app!
Update is awful
by Dagan2278 on 2019/03/15 01:15
I loved playing this game until the most recent update came out. Before the update you could push a button on the puzzle settings menu that would lock the board and keep it from moving. While you can still do this with the new update, it resets every time you start a new puzzle, unlike before when it would stay that way until you changed it again. Having the board be movable is unnecessary to begin with (except for zooming in and out). The scatter function is worse than before and it moves the pieces too far out onto the edges of the board, and I have to move them back in again in order to see them. I play this game on an iPad, and even though the iPad is old, I feel like the ads on this game slow the movements down a lot more, and the pieces don’t follow your finger as well as they used to. Other than those complaints I still really like the game. I enjoy that there are free daily puzzles as well as many free puzzle packs. I also enjoy that you can earn coins with every puzzle you complete, and use those coins to “buy” new puzzle packs. I hate in-game purchases, so having the incentive to do more puzzles in order to get more puzzles is highly rewarding and less draining on my bank account. Many of these puzzle packs are not worth the money, even if they are on sale. I will continue to play this game even with its flaws. I think that it is still worth it and pretty fun to do when you want to relax while being mentally active.
Newest Version Doesn’t Address Old Issues
by Uncle Dan 59 on 2019/03/14 01:40
First I want to say that I put together a puzzle with this software almost every day, so I’m very familiar with it. Unfortunately, the last update is very annoying and disappointing, and they still haven’t addressed older issues that bother an average user, namely; 1. Puzzle image is restricted to a square format; 2. Table size is too small; 3. Auto scattered pieces go nearly off the small table. Here are the issues with the newest version; 1. The overall feel is very jerky. While they may have made the play faster, it feels much more like a computer game than it used to. The smoothness of moving the pieces around is much reduced. 2. The virtual table is way too small no matter what size I set in the preferences. There needs to be more room outside of the puzzle frame to assemble pieces and develop strategy. 3. The pieces seem to violently snap into place when they get close to being correct. 4. The puzzle size is still limited to a square format. 5. Auto scattered pieces still go nearly off the table. 6. When scrolling to the side to see pieces off the playing area, the whole game snaps back too quickly. A larger virtual table may be the solution to this and some of the above issues. I almost never criticize other people’s hard work, but this version leaves a lot to be desired. I really want to give it 5 stars, but I just can’t until they fix the above issues. Please fix a few things and I’ll enthusiastically recommend this app.
A MUST OWN APP! U complete my iPad! 🤗May 2018
by Swampy D on 2018/05/07 04:54
I posted this and it was fixed the same day! I’d give you 10 stars if I could!!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I ➖ LOVE ❤️- the flash when I’ve got the right piece! Glad you added it ... could turn it on/off in settings. My husband 🛏 💤 💤 💤 sleeping while I play, so I don’t use sound effects. Developer? Please Fix ...What happened to the names of each puzzle? Example: I bought the bundle “FAMOUS PAINTINGS” because I liked that each painting had a title. A little bit of trivia made it even more interesting. It was there when I bought it and downloaded it. Now, they’re gone. I want that feature “Name for each puzzle” back please. I use your app everyday. I give your app full approval and highly recommend it with 5 Stars ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️ because it’s perfect! No bugs, no crashes, ever! Always up to date with every new Apple update! Online or offline, I can play it anywhere and everywhere. I just ❤ my puzzle packs! Great puzzles- free and/ or to buy at great prices! New bundle sales all the time! I budget myself to one purchase a month because I have so many to open yet! ...and what a deal (frequent $ales) for the price of one puzzle I get 20 to 60 different puzzles and in every size to play over & over! It’s like buying 600 puzzles for $1.99!
Almost perfect!
by FarmFanRw on 2019/02/20 21:37
I’ve played 6 different puzzle apps and this one is Almost the best!There are so many beautiful and fun pictures and categories to choose from. Lots of free puzzles! I paid for the full version and have purchased one puzzle pack just because I loved all the pictures in it. There are a few more that I will buy once I complete this one. You can also download more backgrounds for free! I Love the picture preview! You can leave it on so that you can see it while working the puzzle and it is resizable and can be moved all around the playing area!! Most puzzle apps don’t do that. The only thing that this is lacking is having a tray for your puzzle pieces. There are times when I don’t want the pieces scattered. I would rather take pieces out one at a time from a scrolling tray and sort them that way like some other apps have but also still have the option to move out all pieces if you want to. A scrolling tray would make this app absolutely perfect!!! As far as how the app works, it’s great! I haven’t had any problems with glitches or things not working correctly like some of the other reviews. Please developers, make a scrolling tray to keep pieces in 🙏🏼....that would make your App the Very Best!! I would pay even more if you could keep everything else the same and add this feature!!! Then I will come back and make my rating a 5 Star App!!!
New update
by Juli3bugg on 2019/05/05 00:52
Come on guys. I LOVE my jigsaw puzzles. I’m sure you can check my purchase record. I do like how, with the last update you corrected the part of scattering ALL the pieces OUTSIDE the playing square. Something changed two updates ago. It used to be that I could open a puzzle and let it scatter...the help bar would STAY up. Then I could corner spread and lock the puzzle. Now I have to pull the help bar back up to select corner scatter AND manually reduce the puzzle so I can lock it. If I don’t, of course, I have to move it all around to see the pieces in play. The puzzle moves with almost movement of one piece. 😕. When I purchase a new puzzle package I have to scroll again and again to find it. Why can’t it just come back up in the front like it used to? Also, there have been many times that I’ve closed out to come back and discover it hasn’t saved the puzzles I’ve done in the package. When I leave one and come back to it, it can show 82% complete but totally scatter the whole thing so I have to start all over. I loved it when you started offering points with each puzzles to earn enough to buy another. The December gift pack was great! I wish you could somehow fix it so that the new daily puzzle would show up at midnight our time, instead of two in the morning. That’s probably too much to ask. Please people, fix my puzzles. 😁
To share is to be an add
by Woolvic on 2018/03/31 04:30
I love jigsaw puzzles. And digital puzzles take up no table space, unless my iPad is on the table. I have had this puzzle app for 5 years. I am completely happy with the puzzles and solving them. BUT ... SHARING THEM HAS CHANGED! I strongly dislike the way the completed puzzle picture is now changed, shrunk, and surrounded by other stuff to make an ad out of it. When I share my completed puzzles on Facebook, I want to show the picture of the completed puzzle as it existed when I completed it. This is how it used to be shared. The app logo was in the lower corner. That should be enough. Friends who asked were told about the app. I was apparent with the app logo. Now it’s a link that shows a tiny picture of the puzzle. Oh, in fact even that is nor always the case. I recently posted a completed puzzle only to find out that the picture I shared was not the picture displayed. What crap! I have decreased my satisfaction rate from 5 to 3 stars all because of the change in sharing. I want the old way back. I’m the one solving the puzzle. I want to share the results of my effort as it is depicted when I complete the picture, full size with puzzle lines. Logo & link info should NOT overpower the picture. Or find another way to promote your app.
From A Lover of Jigsaw Puzzles .....
by CavRmom on 2019/06/27 19:53
This app rates five (5) stars from me. Choices are seemingly endless ... including level of difficulty. You can choose to do any one or more again at the same or a different level of challenge (number of pieces) and you can adjust backgrounds to make puzzle pieces easier to see. Gaining points from the completion of puzzles allows you to "save/bank" your points to purchase puzzle packs without any monetary outlay. That being said, since 999 points is the least expensive purchase, you'd have to be solving "Jigsaw Puzzles" pretty steadily for quite a while to reach "purchase power level #1." I usually work at 196 pieces (since I'm on my smartphone ... & "as old as Methuselah" 😉) ... & the screen size is limiting. Completion at the 196 piece level gains ten (10) points, so you can see how long it would take to attain those 999 points ... 100 puzzles! A minor adjustment there would be my only suggestion for your consideration. I've purchased puzzle packs ... before the completion credit policy & since, I've downloaded the free puzzles and I always play the daily FREE puzzle ... so I'm as happy as a bear with a huge pot of honey, with or without my suggested revision. Just keep these beautiful & challenging puzzles coming. CMPR
Puzzle fun, glitches... not so much
by blueberrygal on 2019/07/06 03:06
NEW UPDATE: seems fixed? Too soon to tell for sure but the most recent software update seems to have fixed the bug. Fingers crossed! UPDATE: I wrote my first review earlier this week and as of this morning, the app is almost unusable... crashes about every 30-45 seconds and when I relaunch, I have to sit through another ad before accessing puzzles, which quickly crash again. I have noticed that the app never seems to crash during an ad, only during puzzle work. ORIGINAL: I love, really love, playing this puzzle when it’s working properly but on my phone it tends to freeze and shut itself down regularly. This has always been an issue and in the past, it would only happen if I switched back-and-forth between apps while the puzzle was running. Now, it seems to just happen randomly. Most of the time, it saves my work before it shuts down but sometimes it doesn’t. And when the app relaunches, you have to sit through the ads all over again. It also tends to drain the battery pretty quickly. But I love the variety of images and the myriad ways the difficulty level can be adjusted... number of pieces, rotating pieces, etc. Just need to fix the bugs!

by George293 on 2019/05/07 01:23
Absolutely love the puzzles and the choices and the fact that you can change the amount of pieces to do the puzzle. Great idea to have a different puzzle every day. Great idea that I can open a new puzzle in the Christmas pack every day. Very addictive. Sometimes the pieces are very slow to move and that get me frustratedly. Then it disconnects and you have to resign on again. The new improvement of the piece lighting up when in place is great. Give it a 5 star rating May6,2019 I don’t know what happened it is going down hill. They finally fixed board freezing then had problem for several days where daily puzzle didn’t come up. Today a new problem when I down loaded new puzzle of day and opened it I had a black background, board was frozen and no borders for puzzle. When I went to saved puzzles same thing. Tired to change background color and there was no colors to choose from- blank screen. Game freezing again. Game going down hill. To many problems one right after another. Never was like that before. Might delete game. No longer 5 star game, maybe 2 star. May6th. I must say the puzzle team addressed today’s problem promptly and got the game up and running at 100%. Well done
Fun App with Reservations
by Hammysam on 2017/11/25 00:08
I enjoy this app but have 2 problems with it. First, if you really want to use it, you will be buying puzzles. Second, there are times when you can't move the puzzle pieces that are outside the play field. This slows down the play quite a bit and is a frustrating issue which needs to be fixed. I don't appreciate games that involve in-app purchases where u cannot play at all unless u buy items. In this case, you get one puzzle a day free. If you want more, be prepared to pony up. The puzzles are nice though. Update to this review: As a long time player of this game, I have to say that the developers are very responsive to any customer problems in using this game and also are always trying to improve the playing experience for them. There is no longer a problem moving pieces around the board and other improvements have enhanced the puzzle play. Also, any player will find many interesting puzzle packs to buy and they are frequently on sale. In addition, they are always adding new puzzles and sometimes asking players what they would like to see for new puzzle packs. Great game by great people! Thanks.
Worse by the day!
by Kathyl0u on 2019/04/20 12:23
I wrote a review a day or two ago, and can't find it, so I'll have to start again. With the latest update, things have gotten way worse. This app has always had issues, now it's unplayable. As I said in my last review, the puzzle pieces are now nearly unmovable. They just won't drag, and when they finally do, they don't want to go into place. The update was to make the puzzle open more quickly, which it does! But what good is it when the puzzle is so hard to play? This morning I tried to open it and every time I hit play, it would mute itself then close. I wrote to the company three or four days ago, but haven't had a response. I'd try uninstalling and reinstalling, but I read in their trouble shooting I could lose the puzzle packs I downloaded. What to do? UDATE: They did another update and I'm adding back a couple of stars. As they claim, the puzzle now loads faster...when it eventually appears. The intro to the puzzle, however, takes awhile, first appearing vertical, then horizontal, then stretching out, and finally becoming normal so you can tap play. They have taken out the option to earn coins by watching adds. When the "watch ad and earn coins" icon is even there it never works, saying, "There are no ads available. Try again later." But at least the daily puzzles are playable again.
Puzzled....
by meeshbrand on 2017/09/21 06:02
In the beginning I was happy with the app... then, I attempted to purchase the add on that would have enabled me to use my own photos as puzzles... it was also supposed to unlock all of the features associated with this app.... Unfortunately, it did NONE of these things... what it DID DO, however, was to take the money out of my account for it.... I attempted to make this same purchase again, some months later, at its relentless prompts.... again, it did not unlock any features... this time, however, I removed the credit card number that it was going to take the money from... The next time I attempted to download a FREE app, it refused to let me do it, as it said I owed money... even though I never received anything, the first time, & they DID get their $, it held my phone ransom, & wouldn't let me do anything until I put that credit card back in... & of course, the minute I did... it took, for a second time, money for something I never received.... I attempted to try & reach someone, which I never was able to get a call back from... now, I have no add one, yet I'm now receiving more & more adverts... which was SUPPOSED to be one of the things that I was supposed to get as part of the package I've now paid for TWICE.... the AD FREE app.... I'm receiving at least 5~6 ads with each & every puzzle I attempt to complete.... :(
Better than average
by Newest iPad on 2018/04/08 00:27
This is a fairly good game. To be honest, I am using the free version, and noticed some glitches at the start - specifically, it slows down at times. I have bought 3 puzzle packs and the puzzle feels slower than ever. There are pieces that seem to "stick" when you try to choose or move them, so my timing to completion is slowed. Overall, I enjoy the puzzles (otherwise I wouldn't have purchased packs) but they are increasingly hampered and slowed. So I will not continue to buy packs until the programmer unsticks the pieces and makes it so that each piece moves readily and smoothly, even if ads are scrolling across the bottom. Update: 4/7/18: Recent puzzle update helped in that I no longer have to listen to ad jingles while playing. (I prefer my own music in the background). However, pieces still get stuck; the whole puzzle stops intermittently - I have to completely close down and re-open, which wastes a lot of time. I had purchased several packs but won't buy more: I noticed a trend in the puzzles they offer that I feel are PREJUDICED. They only have puzzles of certain parts of the world; for ex., even when showing puzzles of the Mediterranean areas, only Greece, Italy, France were shown. In fact there are many Western European photos and Far East (China) while other countries are ignored. When they start offering more global choices, I may consider buying more packs.
Best App EVER
by BeckL14 on 2017/09/21 02:24
I have used this app for over 4 years and it just keeps getting better and better. I love this App. It helps me pass away the hours of the day as I can't get around very much. I love the variety of puzzles to chose from and the prices are very reasonable. It has some easy easy to as hard as you want it. It really is an great app. I also like the new selections that you have added with multiple puzzles in each set. I play everyday and sure helps entertain me plus pass the time. Thank you having such a great selection of puzzles and now having the larger number of puzzles in one group. UPDATE 2017 This is just another little update to my previous review. I love this app. It passes time like nothing else. They have really made a lot of changes for the better in the app. There are a lot of awesome "deals and sales". There is a great variety of puzzles to choose from too. If you've never tried this app you don't know what your missing. You can choose the number of pieces per puzzle so you can do really, really easy or way, way hard. I would say you should try this app, you won't be disappointed. Thanks for having a great app like this.
Fun! But ads too long!
by keystonekate on 2018/04/02 21:17
I recently stumbled onto this and love it! There are many puzzles to choose from and you can choose the number of pieces in the puzzle, so you can increase the difficulty as your skill increases. However, between each puzzle you have to watch a L O N G ad ... I know nothing is free so if you're not spending money you're going to spend some time watching ads, but these ads are much longer than with any other game I play. If the ads were reasonable in length, I would have rated 5 stars. UPDATE..... the latest update is the best! And the ads don't seem as long as they used to.... maybe I'm just getting used to the rhythm of the ads. Or maybe I've been playing several other jigsaw puzzles to realize that this one is the absolute best! You can change your background, listen to music if you want (I don't) and share your puzzles. Also informative information about the puzzles. If I decide to purchase any jigsaw puzzles .... and I think I'm going to because they are so reasonably priced, it will definitely be this app. I look forward to the new daily puzzle every day. Thanks for the latest improvements!
Review
by jeni868 on 2019/06/25 19:57
I love this app! I haven’t been able to put a puzzle together in years since I have a toddler who will destroy it first chance he gets. I was so excited to find this app. The puzzles are all beautiful and take a little time to complete. The only issue I’ve had with the app is not being able to see the free daily puzzles. I’ve only been able to get two or three and since then it’s just been loading. Oh well there are plenty of other puzzles to keep me busy! Updated review 6/25: I still love this app but am finding it difficult. It acts weird when I have my cellular data turned on for it; freezing, closing and the pieces are more difficult to move. When I turn my data off it goes back to normal. I just tried to purchase a puzzle pack on sale with my coins but it keeps saying I don’t have enough coins to purchase it. My guess is it’s trying to make me either purchase it with money or buy with the original coin amount. I don’t understand why they have sales if you can’t actually get them at that amount. Now it’s started telling me to check my network connection every time I try to use my coins. It acts like it will let me buy it with money though. Not a fan of that. If I can’t ever use the coins I will probably move on to another app.
Progress on issues introduced with last major rewrite
by Delavine on 2019/11/12 19:59
Developers have done a good job cleaning up bugs introduced with last major rewrite of the application. Still missing is the previously available function that showed the hint completed puzzle (eye icon) in the exact location and size as the current view. Still a set back for visually impaired users. Update 12Nov2019. To the developer...thank you for your response; apparently I wasn’t clear on my issue. Try this...start a puzzle, do the frame (edge pieces) and expand the working puzzle to the point you can on;y see the lower left quadrant of the puzzle you are working. Now hit the eye icon to see the completed puzzle. What I see on my iPad is a small picture of the entire completed puzzle. What I used to see was the completed lower left quadrant, exactly the same size and position as the corner I was working on. If someone is visually impaired and needs to work on the corner at an expanded size, your little picture, which cannot be enlarged much at all, is no help. By the way, I’d have contacted you directly from the link at the bottom of your message, but it took me to a contact section for companies looking to partner with your company.
Works My Brain, improves My Concentration & it's Fun!
by nymagpie on 2017/10/12 03:46
I use this app on my iPad2 and have never experienced any technical difficulties. I don't have to sign in each time, I just tap the app and it's ready to go. I do the free puzzle as often as possible. A new one is offered each day and you can save them to work on later. In addition, your unfinished puzzles are also saved, and you pick up right where you left off, for as long as it takes you to finish. Maneuvering the pieces with my finger is easy and when you get the correct pieces close to each other, they snap together, accompanied by a clicking sound. This allows you to move quite rapidly. The pictures they choose are lovely and there's a great variety. The timing feature is perfect for measuring my progress, because I like to beat my own time. The level I work at is about 196 pieces, I don't rotate them and my best time is 39 minutes. On the lower border, my hand or fingers may inadvertently press on one of the many offers for gameplay, but I simply and quickly tap the X in the corner and it is eliminated. I do this quite automatically now and I'm not bothered by it at all.
MyPuzzleZenTime
by MEMENTO MARI on 2019/03/15 15:06
LOVE everything (except) since my last update, the puzzle pieces including the background moves around while trying to work the puzzle..... when activating the border feature (love) the pieces go all over the place, used to be outside the puzzle border line & pieces go wayyyyy off to the sides & are difficult to get to move into a usable position. Same with then retrieving the rest of the pieces after the boarder is completed...... so annoying ... they go all over the place.. inside the boarder, on the boarder, so far away from the boarder it’s frustrating to try to move them without everything around them popping up.... while the background is also moving..... words like.... annoying & frustrating never used to be in my puzzle time... it’s no longer ZEN.... I still am giving it 5 stars as I have hope it will be returned to an enjoyable experience, plus I don’t like any other puzzle app... I have them all.. only use this one. Hate that it changed... used to be PERFECT‼️ 🧩🧩🧩‼️ PLEASE FIX THESE ISSUES 🙏🏻♥️ Thank you you for giving me the opportunity to vent. I look forward to “MY” puzzle time.. please return to ZEN... 😇
Its actually free
by Darkgoddex on 2019/03/19 10:44
I love this app!! It actually is free! You dont have to purchase anything, you get a free puzzle every day. I play this on my iphone. I play nearly every day. Once you finish a puzzle, you earn coins so that you can purchase a puzzle pack. Ive been playing on this app for about 9 months. Some of the reviews complain about the pieces showing a flash when they connect, I happen to like it bc that tells me the pieces are in the right place. It comes in handy for difficult puzzles, since I am playing on a smaller screen. A few things I dont like : when you use the scatter button, the pieces will scatter beyond the outer edges & when you try to pull them in, especially at the top, the screen tries to come down-super annoying! Quit often when pulling or dragging a piece, the screen moves too. I think there is a lock for this, but I haven’t seen it yet. I really like the fact that there is truly nothing to buy, but you can if you choose to. I also really like that I can do this puzzle all at once or start it, leave it for a day or two, & then come back to it. So, I can keep occupied or not. Its not timed & there are no levels. I have truly enjoyed this app!
Used to be amazing - Lots of flaws now
by HLynnB8 on 2018/02/27 17:44
I used to play this app everyday, multiple times a day but the last few months the app has really declined. I love to listen to music or podcasts & the ads in the app constantly cut out my sound making me have to exit out of the app, pull up my music/podcast app & press play again; every 15-30 seconds. It's beyond annoying & discouraging because I end up stop playing the puzzle app so I can listen to my music/podcast instead. And based off other reviews I don't buy the upgrade for no ads because many ppl have problems with that purchase. Also many times the daily free puzzle doesn't load but is instead just a same picture of M&Ms. On top of that the thumbnails of my current puzzles to play is just the same 3 pictures repeating over & over and are not the actual puzzle to be played. So if they can fix the ad sound issues, add a search function, fix the daily puzzles not loading & the current puzzles thumbnails to be the actual puzzle I'd be back to playing the app daily again & rating it 5 stars as it is the best puzzle app out there just has these few issues.
My favorite puzzle game
by BWB7 on 2017/12/17 07:15
I have had this game for some time now. It is my favorite puzzle game of all time. Just when I think it can not get better, they surprise me with an update that does enhance its quality even more. I enjoy how there are a plethora of puzzle pictures. Literally there is a option available for all tastes. I love how you can continue to play this game for free indefinitely as there is a free puzzle every day as well as free puzzle packs to play. On top of that there is a place where you can view puzzle packs for a price. The puzzle packs are very inexpensive and also offer a wide variety of design choices. Being able to pick how many pieces you want each of your puzzle to be, having the choice to rotate the pieces, being able to pick your background playing tabletop design, and so many other tactical options makes this application superior to the others. Thank you to the makers of this application for creating such a quality product that allows users to continue to play for free as long as they want or be able to pick packages at reasonable prices if desired.
Good fun gone bad Update
by TXChick512 on 2018/02/16 01:22
Mobilityware let me know that to reduce the data storage that this app uses, delete your completed puzzles. I could not find this at first, but the Completed Puzzles icon is in My Gallery located at the bottom of the home page. They also say you can delete the Trophy room, but I can't find that room on my iPad. It does not appear that they have plans to stop the advertising pop ups. So, I raise my rating to 4 stars. This is a great game. I love puzzles, but Mobilityware has destroyed this app. Or maybe Critical Hit did when they sold out. Either way, I strongly suggest you PLAY the FREE version. DO NOT PURCHASE this app, because you will still get advertising that interrupts your play, but worse than that, they don't control the cache that takes up all your data storage space. Their only solution is to delete all that you have purchased. I haven't purchased so many puzzles that it should be taking 8.4 GB (and growing every day I play) of my data storage. Beware! They should add a feature that removes cache when you reboot! Their only solution is to delete everything I've purchased. Very sad. Does anyone have a suggestion that they can't or won't provide?
Changes in your puzzles
by D.S. in Ohio on 2018/04/21 21:23
I have enjoyed doing puzzles on theJigsaw Puzzle app and purchased quite a few packs in the last two years since I got my I pad. But I do not like their recent changes. It was nice after finishing a puzzle to have the satisfaction of seeing the puzzle large for as long as I chose to look at my finished work. Now they flash it large for a second or two and then it goes small. I feel as though I barely get to focus in on my finished work in the large format! I also liked seeing the name of the puzzle after finishing it but have noticed that is not always there now. I am disappointed in their changes. I received a response from the makers of Jigsaw Puzzle within 48 hours of my above review. They were very courteous and explained I can see my finished puzzles in a large format and view them for as long as I wish under “completed puzzles” at the Jigsaw Puzzle site I use. Thank you for that information. I checked it and it does work just as you said! I am pleased. I upgrade my evaluation to 5 stars now! I really enjoy your puzzles!🙂. Thank you.
Updates are awful
by werrrfggytrrtyh4554433 on 2019/09/08 00:32
I have played this app for years and have purchased hundreds of puzzles, always enjoyed the experience. The last few updates have really made a mess of the whole puzzle experience. Every time a new update is issued it gets worse, most of it I can live with but the last one has caused puzzles that I have almost finished to start from the beginning! Just now I was returning to a puzzle that was 82% finished and when I went back into it, it wiped out what I did and I have to start all over, this is very annoying. I would give this game 5 stars but have knocked that down to two stars with all the trouble I have had with the current updates. Please fix this now! This continues to get worse everyday, I’m going to look for another app since you don’t seem to care if your app works or not. I would not recommend this to anyone! *****I have started the same puzzle three times and every time I leave the screen and then go back anything that have done is no longer there and I have to start over. Also it seems to delete the puzzle I completed previously and does not show it in the completed section! I have given this app many chances but I’m afraid that I will have to take my loses for all of the puzzle packs I have purchased and find another app that actually works.
Coins?!
by PugPuzzler on 2019/04/29 17:32
I think that they charge way too much for the puzzles tbh. There are free ones, but 3,990 coins for a puzzle pack? It would be different if you got more coins for completing a puzzle, but the most you can get is 36 coins for completing a 400 piece puzzle. You’d have to do an awful lot of puzzles just to be able to buy a puzzle pack. You get lots of puzzles in the packs, but maybe dial it down some! I get that they want people to buy coins, but there are plenty of people who can’t. I think that if they want to do better, I’d say to at least give more coins for the puzzles we complete. They have plenty of sales which is good, but they still range anywhere from 900 to 2,000 coins. Maybe add an option where you can just buy a single puzzle with coins? Above that, it’s an amazing game. For a while it wouldn’t let me do the daily free puzzle, but they fixed it. I like how it times you, to. I’m always trying to better my puzzle skills 😂. There’s no time limit, it just sees how long it takes you to complete it. I like that though. But yeah, make some changes with the coins, and you’ll get the fifth star ⭐️. But for now, ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ from me.
My Favorite App
by Elaine0400 on 2019/06/12 21:19
Jigsaw Puzzle is great for all ages. I wouldn’t change one thing. I have made 427 puzzles from August 4, 2017 to June 12, 2019. A free puzzle is offered every day. The selection of puzzle packages are endless and the prices are very low. You can pick how many pieces you want each puzzle divided into. My favorite is 121 pieces. You can start each puzzle with just the outside edges, by touching the little picture of a corner piece, then scatter them. All the other puzzle pieces will come automatically. The puzzle pieces are in the correct angle unless you want to have to turn them. Learn what all the little choices do when learning to do your first puzzle. Every puzzle you finish is saved so you can look at them anytime. Touch the little picture of the lock when you are moving the puzzle pieces to where they go. Then the puzzle will not move as you scoot each piece to where it goes. Jigsaw Puzzle is very relaxing. If you don’t finish the one you’re working on it will be saved until you are ready to work on it again.
Reliving my youth
by IODICE1341 on 2019/05/03 15:13
I just love this app! I have always loved doing puzzles from when I was a child. This app gives you one free puzzle each day or you can search the puzzle library for other free ones or many you can purchase. I complete one puzzle each day and whenever I have a free 10 minutes I work on my puzzle. Great fun! Try it....you will love it!! Still loving this app. I really love the puzzles with the bright colors. They are fun to do and the finished products are brilliant. I do at least one puzzle each day and it is very calming compared to the other games that drive me crazy. I really like the feature where you can resize the puzzle pieces. You can have 8 pieces or 300 pieces. Good for all ages!! Enjoy. I am adding a new comment today. I still love this app, however I got a new iPad recently and there was no way to retrieve my completed puzzles or my winning coins. I was able to retrieve my purchased puzzles but I am starting from scratch as far as completion goes. I am doing the same puzzles over again and I had to start from no coins when on my old iPad I had over 2000 coins. There must be a way to correct this flaw.
Warning: Family share doesn’t work and hasn’t for a long time
by SuzWanderer on 2019/03/16 17:38
Update: family share still doesn’t work. Stopped working a couple years ago!! The new update is good, though it seems a bit buggy, dragging pieces snags the piece about 1/4” away from where your finger touches down. Strange behaviors like loose pieces layering under snapped in pieces. Minor bugs I’m sure they’ll resolve soon. Really enjoy the token rewards to be used purchasing puzzle packs. I love this app, have really enjoy playing it on my iPad, for years. Unfortunately, the advertised family share feature used to work and I purchased many puzzles for my children to use under their own child Apple accounts. At some point in the last year family share stopped working. the developer has been notified nearly a month ago and it is still not resolved. They say it’s a known bug. It’s been 6 months since I brought it to their attention though and it’s still not resolved. Seems a bit questionable to me. Definitely they make more money if family share doesn’t work and each family member has to purchase their own puzzle packs, but then it shouldn’t be advertised as supporting family share.
Obnoxious Ads & Glitchy Playboard
by Inbodied on 2018/11/01 23:55
This is an update to my earlier review. In addition to the issues below, this latest update dropped me as a premium user and I was assaulted with obnoxious ads that I had to wait for until I could start playing my puzzle. After contacting support and asking why I was suddenly being inundated with ads after being ad free for several years, they sent me instructions about resigning in with my Apple ID. When that didn’t work, they insisted I prove to them that I had upgraded to the ad free version. Since I upgraded in 2013, that was no small feat. It took an hour of my day. I’m wondering how many others were purged and will pay to upgrade again rather than spend the time to find a receipt. Earlier review: After not playing for a while I'm back and even more disappointed. The puzzle pieces stick to the edge of the screen and no amount of coaxing will move them. Very frustrating. I love working jigsaw puzzles and this app was the best one I found when I first started playing. It appears to be getting glitchier with every update. The puzzle freezes and the pieces won't move for several seconds. I often have to close the app and relaunch. I'm also frustrated with the sensitivity of the touch screen. I go to move a piece and the puzzle moves instead.
No Customer Support
by eelissat on 2019/06/27 14:49
UPDATE: This issue has finally been resolved and I have added back stars for how much I love this app! I have been using and loving this app for a few months now. I love puzzles, and this is app is the most realistic I have found to working an actual puzzle. Because of this, I decided I was willing to spend some money to buy more puzzles, and I NEVER spend money on in-app purchases. Ever. But this time I did, and that’s where things went wrong. My purchase did not download. I have been charged, but received no product. I followed the steps on the FAQ page and still have not been able to acquire what I paid for (or my money back). I reached out twice in two different places to customer support asking for help. All I’ve been given is the same instructions that were already on the FAQ page that I had already followed and that did not work for me. I have not been able to get a response from anyone about my purchase. I am feeling frustrated and ignored, and I am kicking myself for breaking my no in-app purchase rule. All I can say is, I am so glad I did not spend a ton of money!
A couple of updates back
by Lucy Poppy on 2019/05/22 17:47
I had and still do really enjoy this app because jigsaw puzzles were a big family thing when I was growing up. A couple of updates back, maybe the first big update they did in sometime, I ended up with a completely white background. I sent in a question about it and I was told the only way to correct this was probably to unload and then reload the app, but to be very careful which version I chose because if I reloaded the wrong one, I might lose all the puzzles I have purchased. The choices were the free app with advertisements or the paid app with no advertisements. I didn’t pay for my app but I also don’t get any advertisements except for new puzzle packs. Since I buy quite a few puzzles, I’ve been afraid to take a chance on losing some or all of them. The white screen is only a problem when a puzzle has part or all of a white border. I love jigsaw puzzles, though, so I will stay with this app unless an update messes it up so that I can’t comfortably work with it. They put out some good puzzles.
Great App!
by IPTFAN on 2018/11/15 02:57
I have had this app for quite a while now and really enjoy it. I like that you can make the puzzles more difficult by selecting the piece rotation before you build your puzzle but I wish this would work in reverse after you have already started a puzzle. I took my own photo, an upgrade that allows for unlimited puzzles which is great, however the picture I chose is very difficult, I have invested hours and hours trying to complete it, and I am getting very frustrated. If I could shut off the piece rotation I would be more likely to try to finish the puzzle. As things are now, I never will. Puzzles available for purchase are reasonably priced and there is a lot of variety. The upgrade to take my own pictures was too. World of Color collections are great! Some collections have too few puzzles in them, I usually download only those with more puzzles. A recent upgrade making it easy to find the edge pieces is wonderful! The background option is really nice too, so you can change backgrounds based on the colors in the puzzle for contrast. However, I find I use mostly a few select backgrounds as they work well with most puzzles. Another thing I would like to see is to be able to move "piles." When I sort based on matching pieces it would be great if I could move a whole pile to one side of the board before laying them out rather than having to move each piece one at a time. Thanks for a relaxing, enjoyable puzzle app with many choices available!
Love it but it’s glitchy
by AEQ30 on 2018/10/31 02:53
I really love this app and use it almost everyday to pass time during a break between meetings or unwind before bed. I have two issues though that drive nuts. The first issue is that sometimes after choosing a new puzzle and the tile size, an ad will run (which is fine no big deal) however once the ad finishes, it takes me back to the same set up screen. From this screen the only thing I’m able to do is X out and then start all over. After I choose the tile size again and watch another ad, I’m then taken to the puzzle. The second (and far more annoying) issue is that sometimes I’ll be doing a puzzle and all of a sudden I’ll be taken to the App Store. I try to switch back to the puzzle but once selected, I’m again taken back to the App Store. The only way to kill this irritating cycle is to close the app then close the App Store and then relaunch Jigsaw. I’m not sure if it only happens on the iPhone X or what the issue is, but it’s wicked annoying. Lastly, and this is just a request not a complaint, I would love a tile option larger than 400 on the iPhone.
Updates unsatisfactory.
by labrys35 on 2019/03/25 00:35
I have had this app for years and I have used it a lot. I love it. Just now, though, I am frustrated with the updates I just loaded. The “scatter” function is sending several pieces so far to the edge that it is difficult to grab them to move them without closing the window in error or pulling up the tool bar. Also, the “click” that happens when a piece is locked in place is louder - may be thought to be clearer - but it annoys me. I will continue playing as I love being able to do the puzzles with no lost pieces and no interference from my cats. Some of the features I like are being able to separate out the edge pieces, scattering pieces out of the center of the desktop, and having a free puzzle offered every day. I like the addition of the coins so that I may earn free puzzle packs. One thing that is a misconnect right now is that if I have done a puzzle which later is in a puzzle pack I download, the app does not recognize that it has been done by me, so I would need to do it again in order to complete the pack. But that is a minor irritation that I will live with.
updated to three stars
by Norm M on 2019/01/01 13:57
I enjoy doing jigsaw puzzles (find it a relaxing pastime) but am rating it 3 (up from two) because There are many features that I like, but the two things I dislike are: When using scatter feature, pieces often scatter to edges of background. The background and puzzle don’t lock, so playing area often gets larger “by accident”, so have to re-adjust puzzle size several times...The lock feature is on but (perhaps this is for pieces) I like the feature of making image & table larger/smaller, but...Also, I requested common or botanical names be used to ID flora, (I use developers puzzles, not my own, so I can learn) the developer(s) get free puzzles from the web & uses web descriptions (eg: Two Yellow Flowers). I think this is laziness. After my complaint, My husband rec’d an email saying this would be addressed. It was ignored. Then he rec’d an email asking to increase his (my) rating. Please don’t send toyuniverses anymore emails. (I use my husband’s Apple ID in App Store). Also, in “Best of Europe II” set, if you use the edge option, the puzzle becomes B&W (red color disappears) in “Red Telephone Booths in Scotland”., a bug Carol C. aka WoofWoof
Undo the “fixes”
by Js Daughter on 2019/03/16 14:55
I’ve had this app for over a year and play it a lot. Love the puzzles and variety of pictures. I like the most difficult 400 piece puzzle... challenging but fun! For me, this was a 4-5 star app but now it’s a 2 and that’s generous! A few days ago when I opened this app, there was a notice that a few “upgrades” had been done along with a few “fixes”. Well whatever these upgrades and fixes were, they need to be UNDONE! This has become the most irritating game I have. The pieces are very difficult to move now. If you don’t touch them exactly right (not sure how that is because it seems to change), your entire picture moves as if that piece had been locked into place. And it’s now very difficult to actually move the piece into the correct place and have it lock in. This so-called fix has made it so frustrating it’s not enjoyable anymore. I spend way too much time moving the entire puzzle back to the center of the screen because it’s been pulled over when I’ve tried to move one piece...which happens with almost every piece I try to move. If this can’t be fixed or undone, I’ll have to give up the app. Too bad...it was one of my favorites.
Bad update
by Pilitinamiao on 2019/07/14 15:50
Edit Summer 2019: I followed the recommendation to update the iPad operating software and it helped some but still overheats the iPad. I found a solution by accident while traveling, though. If I put it in airplane mode while playing the puzzle, it runs smoothly and doesn’t overheat. So I am increasing the score from 3 to 4 stars. The spring 2019 update has made the game unplayable on my iPad mini 2. It is now slow and jerky, overheats my device, and crashes occasionally. Whatever updates were made are too processor intensive. The two I noticed are: improving the rotation point of the piece, and improving the scatter function to reduce overlap. Both are great ideas, but not if I can no longer play. It’s a shame because I did like the game. There is a free daily puzzle. You can cut the puzzle into between 4 and 1000 pieces. You can opt to have piece rotation on or off. The puzzle functions are easy and natural. You can earn points by completing puzzles, which can be spent on new puzzle packs. I usually did 400 piece puzzles with rotation on, to maximize the points earned.
Downloaded Puzzles not opening up
by elisexclusive on 2019/05/09 15:51
l am super disappointed. Everyone knows how long it takes to get 4,000 coins to be able to finally download puzzles you are anxious to play if you don’t purchase them. l finally got over 4,000 + coins & ended up downloading Two Puzzle Packs that were on sale World of Color V, and “Colorful Cocktails.” The World of color V pack downloaded just fine to my puzzles and l am able to play it. However, l downloaded the “Colorful Cocktail,” puzzle pack and it says its downloaded and (Tap to open to play) but it will not open. l have tried several times now. Even by shutting down the app entirely and re-opening it and it still will not open but says it is downloaded to my puzzles. I am super irritated that l just spent an extra 1,990 coins on this Colorful Cocktail puzzle pack that refuses to open!! This is the first time this has happened to me, but it’s ridiculous that l cannot open the puzzle pack that l just spent pretty much the rest of my coins on! Now what am l supposed to do if l can’t trust all puzzle packs to actually download to my puzzles correctly; where they may not open up when spending my coins on them????! My rating because of that just dropped drastically...
Fun but... ( I formally remove "but...")
by PWhitJr on 2017/12/27 09:44
I enjoy working the puzzles. It sparks my creativity. Unfortunately, when finished, I hate to discard them. This stems from my experience in Architecture class where I wanted to keep my project while everyone else enjoyed destroying theirs. Update: I discovered the page that shows all the puzzles I have completed, so I get to keep them after all. I have a friend of Polish descent, so I send him the ones of Poland that I complete. The only problem I have is I have to write down the location pictured before I work the puzzle. 2nd update: I also work another puzzle that has the pieces at the side to scroll through. Those pieces are too small to see the detail. I prefer this setup with space to arrange most if not all of the pieces on the workspace to the sides. Sometimes, after finishing the border, I put together groups until they can connect to the border. All the pieces remain the same size regardless of their location. The flashing is not necessary but it confirms proper location.
Pretty Good
by LeoFlash on 2017/12/29 08:18
Overall, this app is like having a regular, old-fashioned picture puzzle anywhere you go. But sometimes, it’s hard to get pieces to move - it may take several tries to pick up a piece to move it. And trying to zoom sometimes moves pieces instead, as also can happen while trying to scroll while zoomed in. Or the wrong piece will get grabbed occasionally. But it’s nice to be able to toggle between number of pieces in a puzzle; it’s your choice as to how difficult a puzzle is to put back together. And the option to maintain the piece orientation is nice - being on a smartphone means a small screen, and it can take a lot of time just to sort pieces or scroll-drag-scroll-drag a piece while zoomed in, so smaller/more pieces means extra effort and time. For such things, it would be nice to be able to “hold” a piece while you move it from one side of the puzzle to the other while zoomed in. Also nice to have would be a draggable tray to gather a type/color/whatever pieces in. It’s still hard to stop work on a puzzle once you start, tho!
Terrible User-Interface
by CAD Programmer on 2019/04/12 13:54
This app drives me nuts with its awful detection of where I’m touching the screen. It is CONSTANTLY grabbing the wrong pieces, selecting pieces far away from where my finger is actually touching the screen. It also gets “stuck” in a pan mode (scrolling the puzzle instead of moving a piece) which is absolutely obnoxious! Very frustrating user-interface!! There is a LOT of lag caused by a constantly updating ad banner, and the app is a MAJOR battery hog draining your device down to zero in less time than it takes to complete a 400-piece puzzle (about 25 minutes for me). And forget about temporarily switching to a different app or taking a call - the app crashes whenever it loses focus. Seriously. (And this is AFTER the “bug fixes” update!) Also, ever since the last “update”, the app is HORRENDOUSLY SLOW, all graphics reduced in size, and Objectives is always “not available”. It seems like just blunder after blunder with this software. (Maybe coded by ex-Apple employees?) There are WAY too many ads, freeze-ups, and crashes to rate anything higher than one star. If the performance issues aren’t resolved within 30 days (plenty of time for competent programmers) I will be deleting the app. Update: Deleted the app - it is AWFUL!!
Great, but needs a couple more fixes...
by Puzzler80202 on 2018/01/07 04:44
I really enjoy this app, and spend quality time doing the puzzles. Since the number of pieces was increased (which I really liked) there needs to be a way to select more in-between options in the higher counts. Right now, it makes huge jumps in the count, such as from from 400 to 625. I have done a couple of the 625 and 900, but I would really like more choices in these ranges. I chose a 900 count for a picture with great detail, and got really frustrated, it was just too much. Would love to have counts for 450, 500, 550, 600, etc going up to your max. Also the hint button is a very nice improvement, but it would be better if it just put the piece into the puzzle, and not have the two step process. Also would like a function in which if you hold down the hint button, it places pieces sequentially, and is easy to control, like on another PC jigsaw puzzle program I have. This way, when I regret choosing a 900 piece puzzle, I can speed up the hints! Thank you for improving the app and listening to my suggestions.
Back to the best!
by clbo1973 on 2019/03/20 16:47
***I’m updating my review. The makers of the game quickly responded to the complaints about an update. They did another update today and fixed the problems. Thanks for listening!!! I’m so happy!! This really is the best puzzle game. I’ve played them all. I kept coming back to this one. You get a free puzzle daily. I love the puzzle pack choices, the layout, and functionality. If you love jigsaw puzzles, this is the app to get! I’m so not loving the latest update. I find myself getting super frustrated and just having to take a break. The fluidity of moving the puzzle pieces has changed. The pieces are hard to grab and move to the right place. I try to grab a piece and the board moves around. This app has gone from a relaxing, enjoyable one to one that raises my blood pressure. Why fix something if it wasn’t broken? I just purchased several packs a couple of weeks ago. Bummer! Please consider changes things back. 🙏🏻 Before the update, I would’ve given 5 stars.

I have been working ur puzzles for four years. Love them. But today us the first time I have had the request to buy free ads and the first time I have had to out up with ads. Just wondering what the deal us ???? Why after 4 years am I getting thus stuff. Not a happy camper !!! Oct 28 I went ahead and bought the 4.99 package deal that said I would have 3 groups of puzzles and no ads. But now all my puzzle that I had out there , that I had already bought, have all disappeared and all I have now is the three that came with the buying of the so called freeing of the ads. Where did my puzzles go. What is going on. Loved doing my puzzles but am not happy that the ones I already purchased and have not worked r gone. Also the area that tells u if u have tried different size puzzles has all disappeared also. Not happy. I hate to have to quit working the puzzles but I want my puzzles back that I have already spent money on. Would appreciate some kind of answer ,
If it ain’t broke....
by @45fgb on 2017/12/14 23:34
I reviewed before and gave 5 stars, after trying several puzzle apps, I decided this was the best. Eventually I bought the enhanced version, mostly to get rid of the flashing ads, but the other features were good as well, especially background options. Anyway I was happily puzzling away, probably more than I should, until the last update which scatters the pieces more evenly. Great idea, but...a bunch of them end up under the control bar, and have to be moved out. That’s okay I guess, I usually just do it right away as I begin to sort. What’s been lost here is the ability to rescatter as I am working, without losing the sorting, because pieces just fly all over and back out to the edges instead of just clearing the frame and staying in relatively the same order that they were. Anyway, I just never use that feature after the first scatter unless I have almost everything nailed down. I hope I have described the problem clearly and that there may be a way to fix it, or return to the previous method.

I like your puzzles but I’m only ten so I don’t have a lot of money to pay for the other puzzles so I think you should give more FREE options, if you can I will bump up your rating to five stars!!!!!!!👍🏻😁if we have got a deal than show me a sine pretty please 🥺. ( p.s I don’t really know how these things work but I think it’s like a text) good by for now
Newest version major faults
by zzxzzx $&* on 2019/11/21 12:51
Lost all data and existing puzzles due to freezing of screen. Version has side trays which grab pieces if one moves them too close to a side tray. If the correct location for a given piece is close to side tray, entire puzzle freezes and one must uninstall to reset. Don’t seem to be able to rid oneself of stupid side trays. Buy a different puzzle.
Enjoying Game
by BKWRM::)) on 2019/11/21 11:08
11/21/19: Loving the updated Objectives! 5/15/19: Everything seems to be working smoothly. Thank you! On my wish list: more free credits. Only 10 free credits every 4 hours is kind of sad. Update 2019.4.2 did not resolve issue with daily puzzle not working.

A fun way to waste the day away.
Unhappy with new version
by Lesliedu88 on 2019/11/21 04:51
I used to play this every day. I would open my puzzles and work awhile and then save it for later. I understand you need ads, and I would live with one upon opening a free puzzle. But having ads every time I open one I have downloaded is too much. I open the file for my saved puzzles, and that film symbol is like a lock on it. I just don’t open it, and I close the app and move on to another game. Please give me my saved puzzles back.
Newest update MEH
by SHS_Girl on 2019/11/21 04:33
Not a fan of this newest update. There’s less room for the pieces on the sides of the board with all the new features. The tray takes up space and doesn’t seem like a necessary feature. Maybe have an option to turn it off. The pull up menu button is a lot bigger now and also takes up too much space vs the small circle it used to be. The new backgrounds are very distracting making it harder to see the puzzle pieces. The old backgrounds were nice and unobtrusive. I’ll be taking a break from this game until/if they fix these issues
Latest update
by KrunArnold on 2019/11/21 04:32
I I have played this ap for years. You have the best game as far as puzzles all of I do not like the trays on the side. They are in the way and serve no purpose for me. Cant you make it so it can be turned off?a sudden is there a pop up ad for gambling? If this continues I may have to quit and try find another puzzle game
Loved it before the update
by Kavyoh on 2019/11/21 03:39
I do really love this app and I still use it a lot but I’m upset they got rid of the objectives and tracking system. You used to be able to see which puzzles you’ve completed and with how many pieces. There was a star above each puzzle that you could click and it showed a check next to each difficulty you’ve completed the puzzle on. I miss this feature so much. I don’t understand why they got rid of it.
Bad update
by Shylogirl on 2019/11/21 02:37
I loved this app and would give it 5 stars however the new update that added trays you can’t remove completely brings it down to a 3. We should be able to remove everything except the puzzle and pieces from the screen. Too much clutter now. Also the objectives will not go away. They keep popping up. What used to be my favorite game has now become so annoying. Don’t keep adding crap without options to completely disable or hide them. Changes just keep getting worse
Great App!!
by jangay73 on 2019/11/21 02:36
Thoroughly enjoy this app!! The offerings of different puzzles is terrific and prices are really reasonable for all you get! Have tried several other puzzle apps to only be very disappointed with their layouts and HIGH prices!! This is the best puzzle app out there!!!
Get rid of new thing
by poi,,, on 2019/11/21 01:06
How do I get rid of the dam tray thing on the left side of the screen???? What a frustrating new addition to this game. GET RID THIS CRAP PLEASE.
Ads are ruining it
by Wally144 on 2019/11/21 00:52
This puzzle app works well and has a lot of good puzzles. But the required advertisements are the most intrusive I have ever encountered. They are extremely long and you have to watch the whole thing every time you load a free puzzle, even if you have been working on the same puzzle before.
New add requirement is irritating
by Happy Go Luckier on 2019/11/20 23:40
I used to enjoy these puzzles. I kind of like the “piggy bank” they have added, although I am not certain why or to what advantage. The reason I gave it so low a score, now I have to watch an add to select a puzzle, to start the puzzle and if I left it, to rejoin it. Truly considering uninstalling and finding another puzzle game.

by kribbage on 2019/11/20 23:11
I’m not liking the new update where we have to watch ads before doing the puzzles. If there is one thing I would change, that’s it.

by Miyo62 on 2019/11/20 22:39
Once you select hold, it doesn't hold. It keeps flipping back and forth. It s very frustrating. Why can't you fix it. I don't like the way the commercials keep popping up when the puzzle is a timed application. I've been so frustrated with that I've seriously considering quitting jigsaw altogether. I agree with the comments above including QUITTING jigsaw. My problem among others is when I saving the puzzle to play the commercial goes on and on an it adds to the time of completing the puzzle. Time is a factor for me as we complete to see who can complete quickest. Also when I save the "free puzzle" it saves to the same two puzzles over and over. So you can't tell what you have saved so you have to keep opening them. I don't always finish a puzzle in one sitting. Doesn't anyone review the updates? I hate in updating this app for fear what I'm going to get. Help with these problems. Don't ask for comments unless you're willing to fix them. When I save a the free puzzle it saves it with the same picture icon so I can't find it again. Fix it. It is a concern to do updates for fear what your going to get. The last update is terrible. Wish I didn't update it. All comments above needs to be corrected. What good is free puzzles if you can’t save them or it saves them to another puzzle I don’t like the set up. Once you save a puzzle it disappears and you have to hunt for II. I don’t like the set either. Seems like with ever update I like it less. The trays are useless. Remove them, they get in the way.
Great puzzle app
by MacawMama on 2019/11/20 21:22
Thanks for fixing the issue with the rewards. This is my favorite app. Very relaxing and beautiful puzzles. Love the options for different amounts of pieces and rotate. Lots of options for purchasing new puzzle packs.

Ok things settles down after the last update. Please stop adding new stuff that just gets in the way. I do not care for those puzzles trays. They’re annoyances. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it or add useless things. P.S. Still my favorite puzzle app. Your still a five *
Good Brain Food
by S. Conover on 2019/11/20 14:33
I love this puzzle app. My wife introduced me to it. You can make the puzzles as hard or easy as you wish. You won't regret adding this to your game folder. Get it! Update 11-20-2019: I still enjoy this puzzle app. The most recent update includes tabs attached trays for sorting pieces. These get in the way on my iPad. Not enough screen real estate available to be taken up by the tray tabs. Yes they can be minimized but cannot be turned off. It is my hope that in the next update these trays have the option to turn off. Don’t force us to always have to stumble over the tabs that take up too much space.

Latest update no good
by tempann on 2019/11/20 04:19
Like so many others I’ve had nothing but problems with your last update. Completed puzzles keep showing up as in progress, the app closes or freezes for no reason, hate the trays, and worst of all, it sucked up all of the free space in my iPad. Used to play daily but no more. Please fix this.

19Nov19 I’ve been playing this App for years. At least six (6) years anyway. I have always enjoyed myself. None of the others Jigsaw Puzzle App’s have worked so well and work like a regular jigsaw puzzles is supposed to work. I give this App my highest Rating. Anyone who enjoys doing jigsaw puzzles will thoroughly enjoyed playing this App. I do have one small complaint. When sizing the displayed playing surface it does not move smoothly. Now this may be because of my tablet. I am using a 32 GB IPad Generation 6. However, on my pervious IPad with less memory and before the last update (on my current IPad) the sizing was very smooth. Now it jerky. But do not let me discourage anyone from using this App. It’s wonderful. Enjoy!!
It’s ok but...

I love this game, I got it today and already finished 3 hard puzzles (And I was at school most of the day) It’s just that I HATE how whenever you want to do ANY puzzle you have to watch an ad

At first I did not like the trays, but now I really appreciate them-when doing a large amount of pieces it is a great way to subdivide your pieces. I love jigsaw and the variety offered. Keep up the great work!!!

What I wouldn’t give to have the jigsaw puzzle game back fro a few years ago. Been playing this every night for at least 6 years. The trays are locking up my games or I don’t know how to figure them out. I don’t like that I turn my puzzle on to work on them only to find out my pieces have been put in trays! I’ve had pieces locked up a small distance from each other and can’t separate them to place them. Will drag a puzzle piece only to have it disappear into the pile. Miss my old puzzle game immensely! I’m sad about the changes
Please get this fixed...
by 1111shell1111 on 2019/11/19 03:55
I love this puzzle app, but it has really been having some issues lately. When the daily puzzle is downloaded (and you sit and watch the “forever” ad) the puzzle comes up with a black background and can’t be moved or made smaller or larger. I was able to restart the phone or exit the app, but not now. Please fix this, I love playing this when it works. Also, would love to have a landscape option. 🙏
Puzzle phenom

It’s a great game but quite often the “rewards”get stuck and don’t work for days. But puzzles are interesting and varied, not at all mundane.
Favorite Ever UNTIL this last update
by cantrecallmyname on 2019/11/18 21:11
Unfortunately, this Favorite EVER app now has a Tabs added that cannot be turned off. Nice idea, BUT I keep accidentally adding pieces to tabs, which I then have to retrieve (and delete the newly added tabs!) This would be nice for an option IF I had the ability to turn it off... you have that option for many things like music, locking the screen so it doesn’t go past its edges, why not with this option??? It also takes up space on my limited size phone screen and hides pieces I’m looking for and haven’t realized I accidentally put into a tab.. or two or three!
THIS APP IS BROKEN
by SaraBellah on 2019/11/18 20:36
A few weeks ago, the app stopped recording your finished puzzles so they keep showing as In Progress. I haven’t tried deleting to see if that gets them out of that area. I emailed the developer - no response. I messaged the developer through Facebook & was told they’re working on it. They’ve released an update since then, but the problem continues and is actually worse. Now the app isn’t recording your progress. I was about 50% through a puzzle yesterday. I went back to it today and it doesn’t even show as started. In the time I’ve been playing this app, they’ve added enough to it that it now takes 15-20 seconds to load on my iPad. If it’s a fresh start (from completely closed - not open in the background), it won’t load on the first try. Usually takes two attempts to load it, but sometimes three. I have the paid version to get rid of the ads, but I still have to click out of their daily announcement of what’s on sale every time I go into the app. All these quirks have gotten old, more so now that the app is unreliable.
Restarting puzzles
by SueAaronn on 2019/11/18 19:48
Not very happy that previous puzzles seem to go back to start of the puzzle, not where they were left off.
Changes Not Necessary
by #2066 on 2019/11/18 17:41
Don’t care for your changes. No need to double tap to actually get to the main screen, it was fine before, If I chose that app. The trays you set up on the right side of the screen I don’t like, wish I could remove them or you can. Been playing a long time and found these changes cumbersome.
Love this app!
by BrittNMcD on 2019/11/18 17:34
This is one of the best puzzle apps by far! They always have sales going on and awesome packages! Plus, a nice assortment of free puzzles, and a new free puzzle daily! They also have EXCELLENT customer service. I purchased a puzzle pack a few weeks ago and it didn’t show up on my app, so I reached out and not only did someone get back to me in a timely manner, but the issue was instantly fixed, I got the puzzles I paid for AND they gave me 500 free credits! If you like puzzles, I definitely recommend this app, I play it daily! :)
Crashed
by Ev NYC on 2019/11/18 16:16
Normally I love this app and am on it every day. But last week it started having problems and then kept trying to load puzzles over and over and ate up all my data. I had to delete a lot of stuff from my iPad to get to where I could function again. And I had to delete the app entirely to stop it from doing it again. So now everything is back to normal except I lost the extensive list of completed puzzles. Not good.
Update killed my fave app
by litkjbb on 2019/11/18 16:16
Since the update the program constantly crashes, when I reboot, the puzzle I have been working on is gone and I have to start over. Very frustrating because it’s so fun and I love it but I’m afraid I’ve lost it.
Jigsaw trays
by Bobbiberry on 2019/11/18 16:15
First let me say I love this game. I start my day, everyday with a puzzle. I like the new update with the trays. The only downside which is minimal I suppose is the color of the tray background. I would like to be able to change it. Often if I put pieces in there they blend too much with the background and I can’t see them very well. The beauties of old age I guess. Keep up the good work!
Nice Puzzle
by pumpkin81776 on 2019/11/18 15:47
This this is the best puzzle
Now you have to watch more ads just to play
by k54321c on 2019/11/18 05:34
More ads, watching required for anything you want to do. Can’t even write a review without a nickname but they’re all “taken” so you give up before getting a chance to post the review.
Some features are brilliant!
by poppypuzz on 2019/11/18 02:44
I don’t like that the picture at the completion of the puzzle stays unlined for a second only. That does not give the player enough reward for completing the puzzle. I do like that we can make puzzles from our own photos! That is a great feature!
Jigsaw puzzle gather pieces
by carol in cincy on 2019/11/18 02:24
Would be a big plus to gather all the pieces into an area selected. Tap gather, then tap where you want them to be gathered.
Missing pieces
by MamaDuby on 2019/11/17 23:52
Some of the pieces were not there at the end! This is a terrible app!
Latest update
by AdawnL on 2019/11/17 19:07
I love this puzzle game BUT I’m NOT thrilled with the last update. I HATE the tray feature. I understand the idea BUT I would like it more if I am able to deactivate it. I would like the option to shooed to use it. I hate that when I’m sorting my pieces that so many end up in trays when I don’t want them to land there. SO!!!, could you please give up the option to have the tray on the board or deactivate it. ASAP please!
Make sorting trays optional
by phillypa329 on 2019/11/17 17:43
I loved the layout before the latest release. I don’t need sorting trays and want to be able to remove them. They take up real estate and I want it back. Make sorting trays a setting that the player can turn on or off.
So easy to use
by Mulching Mom on 2019/11/17 13:18
What I like about this game is the amount of choices you have to assemble the puzzle. It’s so great.
Be satisfied with success
by partypooperrex on 2019/11/17 07:29
I was hooked and would play for hours--even spent money on boards, but...I think I might be done now. They keep making changes, like adding "trays." Those aren't necessary and just cause distraction. This was great for relaxing but now players have to adapt every 2 weeks and that's stressful!!! You also changed the ad format so you have to sit through longer commercials and navigate around a new banner at the bottom. Too had, you had a good product just a few months ago.

Excellent puzzle choices. Would like to find out if there is a way to purchase real puzzles with any pictures that we choose! highrisebj@ gmail.com
Great puzzles! I love the puzzles and the trays are a big help!
by Baxter's mommy on 2019/11/17 03:57
I have so much more room to work now! Also, I haven’t gotten the pieces stuck when they move around the puzzles.
ADDICTING
by smile more 2002 on 2019/11/17 03:33
Honestly this app is very addicting, one day I was doing a color by number app and I got an add for this puzzle app. I decided to give it a go and now it’s one of my favorite apps! Everything was working good until earlier today. It keeps crashing after like 2 minutes, please fix!
Update
by kam1342 on 2019/11/17 03:15
I used to love doing these puzzles, however, ever since they did an update the puzzles keep freezing and the only way to fix it is to delete the puzzle. It gets very frustrating when you are almost done and you aren’t able to complete the puzzle. I am hoping that they resolve this issue.
Jigsaw Review
by Perk8141 on 2019/11/17 03:04
I love the puzzles, however recently, the screen has begun freezing every few minutes. Have to restart the puzzle each time only to have it freeze again. Very annoying!

Do not like the trays
by no tray fan on 2019/11/17 02:08
How do I get rid of the trays? If I cannot do this how do I go back to an earlier version?
Used to be a great app
by grandmadebi3 on 2019/11/17 01:26
When you put your finger on a puzzle piece to drag, you either (A) drag the piece, allowing you to move it to where it fits in the puzzle. Or (B) you move the puzzle frame. Moving the frame can be useful if you have zoomed in to get a closer look and part of the puzzle no longer fits on your screen. But sometime in the past month or so, the game changed. It’s now extremely difficult to drag a puzzle piece around because there is such a tiny difference between the touch required to do A and that required to do B. I’ve been hoping maybe I’d adjust, but no such luck. The game is now feeling like it’s almost too frustrating to bother with. I can’t fathom why the people making the game thought this would be a good change. Updated 9/5/19: recently, it has gotten so when you put your finger on a piece to try to move it, it’s more likely you’ll move another piece. You may have to move 5 or more pieces to finally be allowed to move the one you intend. Very frustrating. In November of 2019, they have added “trays” to help sort the pieces. This sounded like it might be useful, but no. They don’t hold enough pieces to hold a complete category. You can see only a few of the pieces in the tray. It’s more trouble than it’s worth. And they’re pushing it in a really obnoxious way. After experimenting with using the trays on several puzzles, and deciding not to bother in future, I tried to do a puzzle, but couldn’t complete it because there was a piece missing. Ugh! The game had hidden the piece in a tray where I couldn’t see it. I wish I could reload the version I had several years ago.
Love the puzzles Hate the trays and pop up coin advertisement
by Winter ash on 2019/11/17 01:13
Simple is better
There’s a glitch
by a Puzzle Person on 2019/11/17 00:58
I personally love this game one of the things I love about it isn’t working :( The glitch is making it so that my daily puzzle isn’t even an option, it just says that it never stops loading. But I do love the new sorting trays and look of the puzzles 😁
Fixed my frozen game
by bluejeanmamma on 2019/11/16 20:27
11/16/19 I followed instructions from my in game help person, and deleted my game, then reinstalled. All my purchases came back and the game hasn’t frozen since. I just tested it on a trip without WiFi and it worked perfectly. Took a bit to get my big game board back, but I finally noticed the box to check to get that size back. Thank you. This is my favorite puzzle app. It really makes me happy to be able to play it without problems. 10/17/19 Still frozen black screen Apparently it was wishful thinking that my game was fixed. I’m still getting the same black frozen game board as before. I was at a Dr. appointment and the app searched the entire time for WiFi. I closed the app several times and restarted my iPad, but nothing released it from searching for WiFi. Now that I am back home and connected to my own WiFi, the game has returned to normal. It is extremely important to me that I can play in situations where WiFi is not available. Please fix this. 10/5/19 I sent a message through the game, as requested. I never saw a response. However, I’ve just returned from a 4 day trip in an area where WiFi is not available for me to use, and I am happy to say that my game played correctly the entire time. No black background or frozen board, so I am returning the rating stars and adding one. At would seem that the last update made a huge difference in my game. I would like to add that I am NOT a fan of the new startup screen. It’s too Magic Puzzles for me. I liked it the way it was. I won’t drop a star for it though. 9/9/19 I would have loved playing my game in the waiting room of my doctors office. Unfortunately, it is not playable at all without being connected to WiFi. The app seems to be using all its power searching for WiFi that is not available. When you fix it, I’ll return the stars. 9-4-19 I’m removing a star until you fix the black background that occurs when there is no WiFi available. The screen is so dark that it’s impossible to see the boundary around the puzzle board and no matter how many times I closed the app or restarted my iPad, each time I went back into the game it showed the game was searching for WiFi and the black screen remained, making it impossible to play for the days I was without WiFi. I am regularly in areas where no WiFi is available, and I downloaded your puzzle specifically for those times. I have tried to contact you through the game about this previously but was never responded to. As soon as I hooked up to WiFi today the game returned to the right settings. Please fix this and I’ll gladly return the star. (Original review) I love the game board and being able to see all my puzzle pieces laid out. I love the puzzle packs that are offered. They meet my preferences on the type of puzzles I enjoy working perfectly. It took me a while to get used to how to best use the game board, but now I work puzzles every day using this app. I considered giving it 5 stars about four updates back, when my game worked wonderfully and without any quirks. However, the real thing that keeps me from giving it 5 stars and why I have waited so long to rate it are the puzzle piece shapes. The shapes of the pieces are what I consider more traditional. If they were more unusually shaped I would gladly give this 5 stars.
Great game. Bad update.
by Rachael1945 on 2019/11/16 20:20
Fix Tray please. Keeps locking puzzle up. Better yet, just get rid of it! Otherwise, terrific game. And, because I know you’ll fix this, I’m still going to give you 5 stars.
Good puzzle pack
by Reidly the super hero on 2019/11/16 19:13
I do not like the new format as much as the old one. I like it better when the pieces are spread in the middle and along the sides. Don’t use the trays at all, think they are a nuance. With all that said this is the BEST puzzle I have found. Thanks

Love, but.....
by Tmac123456 on 2019/11/16 18:42
I love this puzzle pack, the only issue I have is that it only gives 10 points per finished puzzle so you don’t have much opportunity to buy puzzle packs with earned coins. I refuse to pay hard earned cash on games especially being retired
Sorting trays
by Puzzle Pal25 on 2019/11/16 18:10
I do not like the new sorting trays. They get in the way and it will not let me delete all of them or turn them off.
Little glitch...
by HIBeach on 2019/11/16 17:40
My favorite app! Since the latest update, some unworked puzzle pieces have moved when I reopen it. I spend a few minutes putting them back - not a huge deal - just annoying. It’s never happened before. And I would like the option to use trays or not...I don’t like them.
Loved it for years until....
by SkiWithMe111 on 2019/11/16 17:03
I don’t know what’s going on. Worked great until the last update. It seems to have some new “tray” feature and it’s locked up on that and can’t do anything. I’ve tried deleting the tray to no avail. It’s a puzzle which was 85% completed and can’t access anything else. 🙁
Last update ruined app
by CABinAz on 2019/11/16 16:47
Last update destroyed this app. Barely works anymore and numerous glitches. Won’t save puzzles, kicks me out constantly and most features slowed to a snail’s pace or frozen and have to restart iPad. Was my favorite game app but now looking for a new puzzle app. Let me know if you go back to previous version(s) and I will play and purchase puzzle packs again. Sad ... 😔
Good but glitches
by spacecat 2 on 2019/11/16 16:29
The game is good but there is a glitch:I was playing today and I couldn’t find a piece so I pushed the hint button and it showed it at the top it but it wouldn’t let me move it and it wouldn’t let me touch it.I also have a suggestion: there should be more trays because I was playing a 100 piece puzzle and there are only 4 trays and it wouldn’t let me put more than 15 pieces in it and on all of the free puzzles you have to watch ads. If the piece moving glitch is fixed I would happily change my rate to 5 stars
Sorting trays
by GXHCZW on 2019/11/16 15:55
As with many apps, the developer looks to fix things that don’t need fixing. They have added sorting trays to the game. These cause pieces to disappear off of the board into unseen trays. There is no way to get rid of these, except buy a different puzzle app (that’s my suggestion).
Pick my own puzzles
by Irie 2 on 2019/11/16 15:51
While the latest updates have been great, I would like to pick individual puzzles and make my own puzzle pack. More often several of the puzzles in a pack are just undesirable.
It's delightful, but I have a few suggestions.
by Fltoner on 2019/11/16 15:28
Update, 11/16/19. I still like the puzzle and play one every day. I do not like the new feature of the “trays.” I realize some people may like them, but for me, they take up a bit of space and I wish I had the option to remove that from the screen. I like to arrange my pieces around the frame so they are all visible to me as I play the game. It’s a really nice game, though, and I still give it five stars. Update, 07/06/19: I finally figured out that when you earn enough “coins,” you can trade them in for a pack of puzzles. It seems to me that earlier, the free puzzle of the day was a really nice picture. Now, often they are somewhat amateurish and silly renderings of panoramas, not particularly lifelike and not really as enjoyable. Today’s was a mishmash picture of children at an English fair, and in addition to much indescribable detail, the children had old, adult features. Part of the fun is seeing a really pretty picture completed. Update, 01/09/19: I still love the puzzle, and do one every day, but now I am "gifted" "coins" -- I have no idea whatsoever what I am supposed to do with those "coins." Would love to know. My earlier reviews are the same. I've just upgraded with a purchase, not because I didn't like the puzzle as it exists in the free version, but just because I believe it is one of the nicest apps I have. It works flawlessly, doesn't freeze up, I could take the ads, as I understand that, absent a purchase, they pay for the free game. No; I'm not a shill. This is a totally spontaneous evaluation of this pleasant game. I'm an ordinary player and have no knowledge or affiliation with the authors of the game. *On 05/15/16 I paid $8.99 for the upgrade, which is exactly what was advertised. So even this objection was now removed. ===== However, first of all, the three backgrounds that come with it are sometimes incompatible with the puzzle -- that is, they need to be different in order to contrast well with the pieces that are laid out on it. I paid $8.99 for the upgrade, which came with extra backgrounds. And after I'd paid the $8.99 -- the backgrounds all became free! Now, As I try to use the greater variety of backgrounds, they are very incompatible with puzzle-making. Prints, weaves, backgrounds which themselves have very distracting patterns and decorations. And the ones that are plain are often fluorescent in nature. Really, practically, your backgrounds should all be plain, and vary from dark to pastel and white. That's all. That's what one wants when making a puzzle. The puzzle itself is just great, the way it works, responds, keeps your place, etc. But I hope the creators will think about this matter of the quality of the backgrounds they supply.
Sorting trays
by 10april on 2019/11/16 15:03
I LOVE the new sorting trays!! Only wish you’d have come up with it sooner...BEST IDEA EVER
New feature
by JCarlock on 2019/11/16 14:35
We need an option to turn the new tray off so we aren’t accidentally dragging pieces into it.
Super fun

Hate tray

Want remove tray now
Spending too much time trying to find my pieces!!!
by RNana1 on 2019/11/16 09:41
Spending too much time trying to find ALL my pieces!!! I can’t even finish my game!!!!! I have 1 piece missing so I can’t even finish the game!!! Was that your intention for players not to finish their game? This latest update with TRAYS is a disaster- not happy, I guess I will not be playing jigsaw puzzle when I can’t even find the last piece to play and finish the game. I am so disappointed in this jigsaw puzzle app with the latest update. AND WHAT IS WITH THE BLACK BACKGROUND? Why can’t I have the background of my choosing? I only have one option- BLACK. Are you guys really trying to tick off your long time loyal players? WHATS THE DEAL 😠 😡 😤
Only one thing and it’s a big problem
by GrandmaOf4+2 on 2019/11/16 09:36
There are plenty to pick from and a wonderful way to earn more without having to pay for packs I think. For every puzzle you complete you earn money and you can even choose to watch an add for money then when you have saved enough you can pick from several packs that have different amount of puzzles in them. I mostly get the the ones with around 30 puzzles in them. I love all the options that this game has, very little adds, great puzzles. I do not know how well this game works if you want to do more then 900 pieces because I stay around 400-600 for my grandchildren time and mine as well. Yes my grandchildren ages 3-10 play this game. Here is the 1 ONE thing if you leave the puzzle you are working on for to long it freezes up and you can not play it again IF it is a free daily game and you have to delete it. That will make a 6 year old have a melt down if they were almost done with it. Please fix this problem. My grandchildren will sometimes start a puzzle then can’t finish it, go home and come back the next weekend and frozen puzzle and I get the melt down. Other then that I would give this game a 5 star ⭐️. Thank you.
Bug fix needed

Frustrated
by StNich on 2019/11/16 05:11
I loved this App! THEN, I updated my iPad with the latest/newest version and now this App stinks! It closes before it will open. Pieces don’t respond to my touch. Pieces freeze and won’t unfreeze unless I completely get out of the App. Sooooo frustrating. I even deleted the app and added it again. All that did was erase all I had done in the app. I’m bummed.
This new update
by potrais on 2019/11/16 04:40
I am a senior citizen with failing eyesight. I absolutely hate this new update. The trays are a good idea, but not for me. I don’t like not being able to change my background when I want to. This black background is ludicrous. Any time you work with black areas of the puzzle it is very hard to see the black parts of the pieces. Another thing, with my eyesight degenerating, I need the regular size puzzle pieces. I was very happy with the previous version of this app. I am limited on how many puzzles I can do. Mainly a half, and on good days I can do the whole puzzle.
Very good puzzles

What happened to puzzles in progress?
by Jewelcc on 2019/11/16 03:04
I love this app and play often. But the last update deleted my entire library of puzzles in progress. I’m not really a fan of the new tray feature. It’s just one more item sitting on my screen taking up space. Is there an option to remove it?
To many ads
by top puzzle king on 2019/11/16 01:51
Puzzles are good. Constant ads has ruin this puzzle app.
Tray
by JayADub on 2019/11/16 01:48
I love the game, but they added a tray that is useless for me, and it takes up space around the puzzle which I used to sort the pieces. Now that space is lost to me and I cannot remove the useless tray.
Please do something about the trays
by laorbdyevaidhesj on 2019/11/16 00:06
In all honesty I love your app but these new trays aren’t something I’m fond of. I’d really like a way to get rid of them because it’s not something I like having. The trays are just in the way and aren’t of any use for others as well.
New and improved?
by tcheermom90 on 2019/11/16 00:05
I don’t like the new improved set up at all. I don’t like my pieces being scattered and pushed to the outskirts of the board and now I don’t know how to stop my screen from moving. I hated the upgrades!
Please fix this update!
by S/V Southern Girl on 2019/11/15 23:58
PLEASE give us the option to turn off the trays. It’s hard enough to grab pieces without the trays expanding across the table whenever I try to grab one near or under them. While we’re discussing the difficulty of grabbing pieces, let me mention that the recent update that made the bottom piece in a stack move when I want to move the top one (the one I choose because I can see it) is not welcome, either. Back down to three stars. The pieces now flash whenever joined to another piece, even if they are not correctly placed. Please put it back the way it was, so the flash only means a piece is where it is supposed to be. Please don’t ‘fix’ what’s working. ——————-$ Updated review: Last night’s app update fixed it. Back to five stars! Thank you! Just as others are experiencing, the pieces are now very hard to “grab”. Frustratingly, the whole puzzle usually moves instead of the piece. This has added 50% to my average time to just make the frame and made finishing the puzzle more of an ordeal than a fun pastime. Please fix, or “unfix”, this last update ASAP!!
Trays
by Precious6747 on 2019/11/15 22:46
I do not want, need or like the trays. I want to remove them if possible.
Love it!! ❤️
by Laurenperson on 2019/11/15 22:27
I love it!! I love I can choose the different piece count when I open a new beautiful picture!! So many selection and puzzles to choose! I would love to have a WISH LIST or some type of list to save packs I want to buy. That would make this perfect!!
TRAYS
by jdr4171 on 2019/11/15 22:13
I love the trays. I play these puzzles on my IPhone and the play area gets very crowded. I use the trays to sort and store until needed. Thanks for the new feature. jdr4171
Stop adding things!
by bikracer on 2019/11/15 22:10
I loved it until you made the board completely unstable, now even when you make the board as small as possible it moves all over so you can’t capture missing tiles. I also dislike the tray idea!

Jigsaw Puzzles
by Slightlysorry on 2017/12/04 20:12
I'll add my thoughts....I love jigsaw puzzles. The only problem in our house is that the hubby doesn't like to see the card table sitting out. This game takes care of that. I have had a great time getting into the swing of things....getting faster now though. Since I just upgraded I play the sound of waves and it is very relaxing. I love flowers and the color green so I make sure to have those puzzles to work on. I give this app an A plus. One more thing....I really enjoy using my own photos in a puzzle. I recently asked about sizing photos while using my own photos. My question was answered promptly and I really appreciate that. I really really love this app. So relaxing! Update: 11/17. I really appreciate this app going back to letting the player decide when to add the rest of the pieces after placing the edge pieces in the puzzle. I didn't appreciate it when one of the updates automatically added them after completing the edge pieces. Over all, I have spent many many hours of fun and relaxation with this app. By far the best of several I have tried. I have purchased a lot of puzzles but have had special enjoyment completing puzzles from my own pictures. I give this app A+. Update: December 4, 2017. I don't appreciate the newest upgrade where an instantaneous flash occurs when the correct piece is added. It is definitely annoying. I'd like to turn it off.
Update last week was ill conceived. Now improved, but still needs some work
by Trolley Molly on 2019/03/21 20:11
Update: they would appear to have been responsive to criticism and fixed the glitches in the new version! I have changed my rating from 2 stars to 4 stars. I still don’t like whatever they did to the feature that allows you to see the completed puzzle to figure where a piece goes. It lacks the look/feel of the last version. Not as user-friendly. Fix that and I’ll bump my review to 5 stars! Thank you! Previous review from last week: I don’t know what happened, but yesterday, when I got my new update, the look and feel was all wrong. It’s just not the same game. The pieces don’t respond to touch as well – I put my finger squarely on a piece and it doesn’t budge. I have to try to grab it over and over again. And unless I have the board locked, the board scoots around over the place instead of the pieces moving. (I like to have the board unlocked so I can shrink/expand and move it around to find the pieces I’ve stashed on the sides.) Also, the ability to see the completed puzzle to try to figure out where the piece goes has been changed. It’s now smaller than the game in progress, so it’s hard to see why the piece up. (My eyes aren’t great.) This is the only way I can solve some of the more difficult games. Please put back what you took out and/or take out what you put in yesterday. It was a five star game until then. If it doesn’t get fixed, I may have to look elsewhere...
Super Relaxing
by lalafor on 2018/02/24 15:38
I truly dislike leaving reviews. I have been doing these puzzles for several years. I finally decided to leave my thoughts about this app. I love it! The app itself is easy to maneuver through. I love hat you can make a puzzle simple enough for a 3 year old or challenging enough for your veteran puzzler. I love that you can turn the ability to rotate the pieces on and off. Sometimes I only have 10 or 15 minutes to do a puzzle so I keep it fairly simple. It helps my brain relax, so I continue on with my busy, hectic day. I'm OCD, so I have to be able to finish a puzzle before I leave. The pictures are awesome. I don't like spending money in apps, but I have in this one. I can't buy a hands on puzzle for 1.99, much less get 30 that I can actually do hundreds, if not thousands of ways. I can also use my own pictures too. What I don't love about the app is that there are so many pop ups for "Sales". I generally don't buy those. I go through the store and choose the ones that I want. The only other thing that I can think of is the backgrounds. I think there needs to be more neutral, calm backgrounds, or tables. I can only use a couple, the neon, or bright red ones make it so I can't even see the puzzles. That's not a big deal, just an opinion. I'm sure they work for others out there, just not me. Overall, it's a 5 Star app!
Update is awful
by Dagan2278 on 2019/03/15 01:15
I loved playing this game until the most recent update came out. Before the update you could push a button on the puzzle settings menu that would lock the board and keep it from moving. While you can still do this with the new update, it resets every time you start a new puzzle, unlike before when it would stay that way until you changed it again. Having the board be movable is unnecessary to begin with (except for zooming in and out). The scatter function is worse than before and it moves the pieces too far out onto the edges of the board, and I have to move them back in again in order to see them. I play this game on an iPad, and even though the iPad is old, I feel like the ads on this game slow the movements down a lot more, and the pieces don’t follow your finger as well as they used to. Other than those complaints I still really like the game. I enjoy that there are free daily puzzles as well as many free puzzle packs. I also enjoy that you can earn coins with every puzzle you complete, and use those coins to “buy” new puzzle packs. I hate in-game purchases, so having the incentive to do more puzzles in order to get more puzzles is highly rewarding and less draining on my bank account. Many of these puzzle packs are not worth the money, even if they are on sale. I will continue to play this game even with its flaws. I think that it is still worth it and pretty fun to do when you want to relax while being mentally active.
Newest Version Doesn’t Address Old Issues
by Uncle Dan 59 on 2019/03/14 01:40
First I want to say that I put together a puzzle with this software almost every day, so I’m very familiar with it. Unfortunately, the last update is very annoying and disappointing, and they still haven’t addressed older issues that bother an average user, namely; 1. Puzzle image is restricted to a square format; 2. Table size is too small; 3. Auto scattered pieces go nearly off the small table. Here are the issues with the newest version; 1. The overall feel is very jerky. While they may have made the play faster, it feels much more like a computer game than it used to. The smoothness of moving the pieces around is much reduced. 2. The virtual table is way too small no matter what size I set in the preferences. There needs to be more room outside of the puzzle frame to assemble pieces and develop strategy. 3. The pieces seem to violently snap into place when they get close to being correct. 4. The puzzle size is still limited to a square format. 5. Auto scattered pieces still go nearly off the table. 6. When scrolling to the side to see pieces off the playing area, the whole game snaps back too quickly. A larger virtual table may be the solution to this and some of the above issues. I almost never criticize other people’s hard work, but this version leaves a lot to be desired. I really want to give it 5 stars, but I just can’t until they fix the above issues. Please fix a few things and I’ll enthusiastically recommend this app.
A MUST OWN APP! U complete my iPad! 🤗May 2018
by Swampy D on 2018/05/07 04:54
I posted this and it was fixed the same day! I’d give you 10 stars if I could!!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I ➖ LOVE ❤️- the flash when I’ve got the right piece! Glad you added it ... could turn it on/off in settings. My husband 🛏 💤 💤 💤 sleeping while I play, so I don’t use sound effects. Developer? Please Fix ...What happened to the names of each puzzle? Example: I bought the bundle “FAMOUS PAINTINGS” because I liked that each painting had a title. A little bit of trivia made it even more interesting. It was there when I bought it and downloaded it. Now, they’re gone. I want that feature “Name for each puzzle” back please. I use your app everyday. I give your app full approval and highly recommend it with 5 Stars ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️ because it’s perfect! No bugs, no crashes, ever! Always up to date with every new Apple update! Online or offline, I can play it anywhere and everywhere. I just ❤ my puzzle packs! Great puzzles- free and/ or to buy at great prices! New bundle sales all the time! I budget myself to one purchase a month because I have so many to open yet! ...and what a deal (frequent $ales) for the price of one puzzle I get 20 to 60 different puzzles and in every size to play over & over! It’s like buying 600 puzzles for $1.99!
Almost perfect!
by FarmFanRw on 2019/02/20 21:37
I’ve played 6 different puzzle apps and this one is Almost the best!There are so many beautiful and fun pictures and categories to choose from. Lots of free puzzles! I paid for the full version and have purchased one puzzle pack just because I loved all the pictures in it. There are a few more that I will buy once I complete this one. You can also download more backgrounds for free! I Love the picture preview! You can leave it on so that you can see it while working the puzzle and it is resizable and can be moved all around the playing area!! Most puzzle apps don’t do that. The only thing that this is lacking is having a tray for your puzzle pieces. There are times when I don’t want the pieces scattered. I would rather take pieces out one at a time from a scrolling tray and sort them that way like some other apps have but also still have the option to move out all pieces if you want to. A scrolling tray would make this app absolutely perfect!!! As far as how the app works, it’s great! I haven’t had any problems with glitches or things not working correctly like some of the other reviews. Please developers, make a scrolling tray to keep pieces in 🙏🏼....that would make your App the Very Best!! I would pay even more if you could keep everything else the same and add this feature!!! Then I will come back and make my rating a 5 Star App!!!
New update
by Juli3bugg on 2019/05/05 00:52
Come on guys. I LOVE my jigsaw puzzles. I’m sure you can check my purchase record. I do like how, with the last update you corrected the part of scattering ALL the pieces OUTSIDE the playing square. Something changed two updates ago. It used to be that I could open a puzzle and let it scatter...the help bar would STAY up. Then I could corner spread and lock the puzzle. Now I have to pull the help bar back up to select corner scatter AND manually reduce the puzzle so I can lock it. If I don’t, of course, I have to move it all around to see the pieces in play. The puzzle moves with almost movement of one piece. 😕. When I purchase a new puzzle package I have to scroll again and again to find it. Why can’t it just come back up in the front like it used to? Also, there have been many times that I’ve closed out to come back and discover it hasn’t saved the puzzles I’ve done in the package. When I leave one and come back to it, it can show 82% complete but totally scatter the whole thing so I have to start all over. I loved it when you started offering points with each puzzles to earn enough to buy another. The December gift pack was great! I wish you could somehow fix it so that the new daily puzzle would show up at midnight our time, instead of two in the morning. That’s probably too much to ask. Please people, fix my puzzles. 😁
To share is to be an add
by Woolvic on 2018/03/31 04:30
I love jigsaw puzzles. And digital puzzles take up no table space, unless my iPad is on the table. I have had this puzzle app for 5 years. I am completely happy with the puzzles and solving them. BUT ... SHARING THEM HAS CHANGED! I strongly dislike the way the completed puzzle picture is now changed, shrunk, and surrounded by other stuff to make an ad out of it. When I share my completed puzzles on Facebook, I want to show the picture of the completed puzzle as it existed when I completed it. This is how it used to be shared. The app logo was in the lower corner. That should be enough. Friends who asked were told about the app. I was apparent with the app logo. Now it’s a link that shows a tiny picture of the puzzle. Oh, in fact even that is nor always the case. I recently posted a completed puzzle only to find out that the picture I shared was not the picture displayed. What crap! I have decreased my satisfaction rate from 5 to 3 stars all because of the change in sharing. I want the old way back. I’m the one solving the puzzle. I want to share the results of my effort as it is depicted when I complete the picture, full size with puzzle lines. Logo & link info should NOT overpower the picture. Or find another way to promote your app.
From A Lover of Jigsaw Puzzles .....
by CavRmom on 2019/06/27 19:53
This app rates five (5) stars from me. Choices are seemingly endless ... including level of difficulty. You can choose to do any one or more again at the same or a different level of challenge (number of pieces) and you can adjust backgrounds to make puzzle pieces easier to see. Gaining points from the completion of puzzles allows you to "save/bank" your points to purchase puzzle packs without any monetary outlay. That being said, since 999 points is the least expensive purchase, you'd have to be solving "Jigsaw Puzzles" pretty steadily for quite a while to reach "purchase power level #1." I usually work at 196 pieces (since I'm on my smartphone ... & "as old as Methuselah" 😉) ... & the screen size is limiting. Completion at the 196 piece level gains ten (10) points, so you can see how long it would take to attain those 999 points ... 100 puzzles! A minor adjustment there would be my only suggestion for your consideration. I've purchased puzzle packs ... before the completion credit policy & since, I've downloaded the free puzzles and I always play the daily FREE puzzle ... so I'm as happy as a bear with a huge pot of honey, with or without my suggested revision. Just keep these beautiful & challenging puzzles coming. CMPR
Puzzle fun, glitches... not so much
by blueberrygal on 2019/07/06 03:06
NEW UPDATE: seems fixed? Too soon to tell for sure but the most recent software update seems to have fixed the bug. Fingers crossed! UPDATE: I wrote my first review earlier this week and as of this morning, the app is almost unusable... crashes about every 30-45 seconds and when I relaunch, I have to sit through another ad before accessing puzzles, which quickly crash again. I have noticed that the app never seems to crash during an ad, only during puzzle work. ORIGINAL: I love, really love, playing this puzzle when it’s working properly but on my phone it tends to freeze and shut itself down regularly. This has always been an issue and in the past, it would only happen if I switched back-and-forth between apps while the puzzle was running. Now, it seems to just happen randomly. Most of the time, it saves my work before it shuts down but sometimes it doesn’t. And when the app relaunches, you have to sit through the ads all over again. It also tends to drain the battery pretty quickly. But I love the variety of images and the myriad ways the difficulty level can be adjusted... number of pieces, rotating pieces, etc. Just need to fix the bugs!

Absolutely love the puzzles and the choices and the fact that you can change the amount of pieces to do the puzzle. Great idea to have a different puzzle every day. Great idea that I can open a new puzzle in the Christmas pack every day. Very addictive. Sometimes the pieces are very slow to move and that get me frustratedly. Then it disconnects and you have to resign on again. The new improvement of the piece lighting up when in place is great. Give it a 5 star rating May6,2019 I don’t know what happened it is going down hill. They finally fixed board freezing then had problem for several days where daily puzzle didn’t come up. Today a new problem when I down loaded new puzzle of day and opened it I had a black background, board was frozen and no borders for puzzle. When I went to saved puzzles same thing. Tired to change background color and there was no colors to choose from- blank screen. Game freezing again. Game going down hill. To many problems one right after another. Never was like that before. Might delete game. No longer 5 star game, maybe 2 star. May6th. I must say the puzzle team addressed today’s problem promptly and got the game up and running at 100%. Well done
Fun App with Reservations
by Hammysam on 2017/11/25 00:08
I enjoy this app but have 2 problems with it. First, if you really want to use it, you will be buying puzzles. Second, there are times when you can't move the puzzle pieces that are outside the play field. This slows down the play quite a bit and is a frustrating issue which needs to be fixed. I don't appreciate games that involve in-app purchases where u cannot play at all unless u buy items. In this case, you get one puzzle a day free. If you want more, be prepared to pony up. The puzzles are nice though. Update to this review: As a long time player of this game, I have to say that the developers are very responsive to any customer problems in using this game and also are always trying to improve the playing experience for them. There is no longer a problem moving pieces around the board and other improvements have enhanced the puzzle play. Also, any player will find many interesting puzzle packs to buy and they are frequently on sale. In addition, they are always adding new puzzles and sometimes asking players what they would like to see for new puzzle packs. Great game by great people! Thanks.
Worse by the day!
by Kathyl0u on 2019/04/20 12:23
I wrote a review a day or two ago, and can't find it, so I'll have to start again. With the latest update, things have gotten way worse. This app has always had issues, now it's unplayable. As I said in my last review, the puzzle pieces are now nearly unmovable. They just won't drag, and when they finally do, they don't want to go into place. The update was to make the puzzle open more quickly, which it does! But what good is it when the puzzle is so hard to play? This morning I tried to open it and every time I hit play, it would mute itself then close. I wrote to the company three or four days ago, but haven't had a response. I'd try uninstalling and reinstalling, but I read in their trouble shooting I could lose the puzzle packs I downloaded. What to do? UDATE: They did another update and I'm adding back a couple of stars. As they claim, the puzzle now loads faster...when it eventually appears. The intro to the puzzle, however, takes awhile, first appearing vertical, then horizontal, then stretching out, and finally becoming normal so you can tap play. They have taken out the option to earn coins by watching adds. When the "watch ad and earn coins" icon is even there it never works, saying, "There are no ads available. Try again later." But at least the daily puzzles are playable again.
Puzzled....
by meeshbrand on 2017/09/21 06:02
In the beginning I was happy with the app... then, I attempted to purchase the add on that would have enabled me to use my own photos as puzzles... it was also supposed to unlock all of the features associated with this app.... Unfortunately, it did NONE of these things... what it DID DO, however, was to take the money out of my account for it.... I attempted to make this same purchase again, some months later, at its relentless prompts.... again, it did not unlock any features... this time, however, I removed the credit card number that it was going to take the money from... The next time I attempted to download a FREE app, it refused to let me do it, as it said I owed money... even though I never received anything, the first time, & they DID get their $, it held my phone ransom, & wouldn't let me do anything until I put that credit card back in... & of course, the minute I did... it took, for a second time, money for something I never received.... I attempted to try & reach someone, which I never was able to get a call back from... now, I have no add one, yet I'm now receiving more & more adverts... which was SUPPOSED to be one of the things that I was supposed to get as part of the package I've now paid for TWICE.... the AD FREE app.... I'm receiving at least 5~6 ads with each & every puzzle I attempt to complete.... :(
Better than average
by Newest iPad on 2018/04/08 00:27
This is a fairly good game. To be honest, I am using the free version, and noticed some glitches at the start - specifically, it slows down at times. I have bought 3 puzzle packs and the puzzle feels slower than ever. There are pieces that seem to "stick" when you try to choose or move them, so my timing to completion is slowed. Overall, I enjoy the puzzles (otherwise I wouldn't have purchased packs) but they are increasingly hampered and slowed. So I will not continue to buy packs until the programmer unsticks the pieces and makes it so that each piece moves readily and smoothly, even if ads are scrolling across the bottom. Update: 4/7/18: Recent puzzle update helped in that I no longer have to listen to ad jingles while playing. (I prefer my own music in the background). However, pieces still get stuck; the whole puzzle stops intermittently - I have to completely close down and re-open, which wastes a lot of time. I had purchased several packs but won't buy more: I noticed a trend in the puzzles they offer that I feel are PREJUDICED. They only have puzzles of certain parts of the world; for ex., even when showing puzzles of the Mediterranean areas, only Greece, Italy, France were shown. In fact there are many Western European photos and Far East (China) while other countries are ignored. When they start offering more global choices, I may consider buying more packs.
Best App EVER
by BeckL14 on 2017/09/21 02:24
I have used this app for over 4 years and it just keeps getting better and better. I love this App. It helps me pass away the hours of the day as I can't get around very much. I love the variety of puzzles to chose from and the prices are very reasonable. It has some easy easy to as hard as you want it. It really is an great app. I also like the new selections that you have added with multiple puzzles in each set. I play everyday and sure helps entertain me plus pass the time. Thank you having such a great selection of puzzles and now having the larger number of puzzles in one group. UPDATE 2017 This is just another little update to my previous review. I love this app. It passes time like nothing else. They have really made a lot of changes for the better in the app. There are a lot of awesome "deals and sales". There is a great variety of puzzles to choose from too. If you've never tried this app you don't know what your missing. You can choose the number of pieces per puzzle so you can do really, really easy or way, way hard. I would say you should try this app, you won't be disappointed. Thanks for having a great app like this.
Fun! But ads too long!
by keystonekate on 2018/04/02 21:17
I recently stumbled onto this and love it! There are many puzzles to choose from and you can choose the number of pieces in the puzzle, so you can increase the difficulty as your skill increases. However, between each puzzle you have to watch a L O N G ad ... I know nothing is free so if you're not spending money you're going to spend some time watching ads, but these ads are much longer than with any other game I play. If the ads were reasonable in length, I would have rated 5 stars. UPDATE..... the latest update is the best! And the ads don't seem as long as they used to.... maybe I'm just getting used to the rhythm of the ads. Or maybe I've been playing several other jigsaw puzzles to realize that this one is the absolute best! You can change your background, listen to music if you want (I don't) and share your puzzles. Also informative information about the puzzles. If I decide to purchase any jigsaw puzzles .... and I think I'm going to because they are so reasonably priced, it will definitely be this app. I look forward to the new daily puzzle every day. Thanks for the latest improvements!
Review
by jeni868 on 2019/06/25 19:57
I love this app! I haven’t been able to put a puzzle together in years since I have a toddler who will destroy it first chance he gets. I was so excited to find this app. The puzzles are all beautiful and take a little time to complete. The only issue I’ve had with the app is not being able to see the free daily puzzles. I’ve only been able to get two or three and since then it’s just been loading. Oh well there are plenty of other puzzles to keep me busy! Updated review 6/25: I still love this app but am finding it difficult. It acts weird when I have my cellular data turned on for it; freezing, closing and the pieces are more difficult to move. When I turn my data off it goes back to normal. I just tried to purchase a puzzle pack on sale with my coins but it keeps saying I don’t have enough coins to purchase it. My guess is it’s trying to make me either purchase it with money or buy with the original coin amount. I don’t understand why they have sales if you can’t actually get them at that amount. Now it’s started telling me to check my network connection every time I try to use my coins. It acts like it will let me buy it with money though. Not a fan of that. If I can’t ever use the coins I will probably move on to another app.
Progress on issues introduced with last major rewrite
by Delavine on 2019/11/12 19:59
Developers have done a good job cleaning up bugs introduced with last major rewrite of the application. Still missing is the previously available function that showed the hint completed puzzle (eye icon) in the exact location and size as the current view. Still a set back for visually impaired users. Update 12Nov2019. To the developer...thank you for your response; apparently I wasn’t clear on my issue. Try this...start a puzzle, do the frame (edge pieces) and expand the working puzzle to the point you can on;y see the lower left quadrant of the puzzle you are working. Now hit the eye icon to see the completed puzzle. What I see on my iPad is a small picture of the entire completed puzzle. What I used to see was the completed lower left quadrant, exactly the same size and position as the corner I was working on. If someone is visually impaired and needs to work on the corner at an expanded size, your little picture, which cannot be enlarged much at all, is no help. By the way, I’d have contacted you directly from the link at the bottom of your message, but it took me to a contact section for companies looking to partner with your company.
Works My Brain, improves My Concentration & it's Fun!
by nymagpie on 2017/10/12 03:46
I use this app on my iPad2 and have never experienced any technical difficulties. I don't have to sign in each time, I just tap the app and it's ready to go. I do the free puzzle as often as possible. A new one is offered each day and you can save them to work on later. In addition, your unfinished puzzles are also saved, and you pick up right where you left off, for as long as it takes you to finish. Maneuvering the pieces with my finger is easy and when you get the correct pieces close to each other, they snap together, accompanied by a clicking sound. This allows you to move quite rapidly. The pictures they choose are lovely and there's a great variety. The timing feature is perfect for measuring my progress, because I like to beat my own time. The level I work at is about 196 pieces, I don't rotate them and my best time is 39 minutes. On the lower border, my hand or fingers may inadvertently press on one of the many offers for gameplay, but I simply and quickly tap the X in the corner and it is eliminated. I do this quite automatically now and I'm not bothered by it at all.
MyPuzzleZenTime
by MEMENTO MARI on 2019/03/15 15:06
LOVE everything (except) since my last update, the puzzle pieces including the background moves around while trying to work the puzzle..... when activating the border feature (love) the pieces go all over the place, used to be outside the puzzle border line & pieces go wayyyyy off to the sides & are difficult to get to move into a usable position. Same with then retrieving the rest of the pieces after the boarder is completed...... so annoying ... they go all over the place.. inside the boarder, on the boarder, so far away from the boarder it’s frustrating to try to move them without everything around them popping up.... while the background is also moving..... words like.... annoying & frustrating never used to be in my puzzle time... it’s no longer ZEN.... I still am giving it 5 stars as I have hope it will be returned to an enjoyable experience, plus I don’t like any other puzzle app... I have them all.. only use this one. Hate that it changed... used to be PERFECT‼️ 🧩🧩🧩‼️ PLEASE FIX THESE ISSUES 🙏🏻♥️ Thank you you for giving me the opportunity to vent. I look forward to “MY” puzzle time.. please return to ZEN... 😇
Its actually free
by Darkgoddex on 2019/03/19 10:44
I love this app!! It actually is free! You dont have to purchase anything, you get a free puzzle every day. I play this on my iphone. I play nearly every day. Once you finish a puzzle, you earn coins so that you can purchase a puzzle pack. Ive been playing on this app for about 9 months. Some of the reviews complain about the pieces showing a flash when they connect, I happen to like it bc that tells me the pieces are in the right place. It comes in handy for difficult puzzles, since I am playing on a smaller screen. A few things I dont like : when you use the scatter button, the pieces will scatter beyond the outer edges & when you try to pull them in, especially at the top, the screen tries to come down-super annoying! Quit often when pulling or dragging a piece, the screen moves too. I think there is a lock for this, but I haven’t seen it yet. I really like the fact that there is truly nothing to buy, but you can if you choose to. I also really like that I can do this puzzle all at once or start it, leave it for a day or two, & then come back to it. So, I can keep occupied or not. Its not timed & there are no levels. I have truly enjoyed this app!
Used to be amazing - Lots of flaws now
by HLynnB8 on 2018/02/27 17:44
I used to play this app everyday, multiple times a day but the last few months the app has really declined. I love to listen to music or podcasts & the ads in the app constantly cut out my sound making me have to exit out of the app, pull up my music/podcast app & press play again; every 15-30 seconds. It's beyond annoying & discouraging because I end up stop playing the puzzle app so I can listen to my music/podcast instead. And based off other reviews I don't buy the upgrade for no ads because many ppl have problems with that purchase. Also many times the daily free puzzle doesn't load but is instead just a same picture of M&Ms. On top of that the thumbnails of my current puzzles to play is just the same 3 pictures repeating over & over and are not the actual puzzle to be played. So if they can fix the ad sound issues, add a search function, fix the daily puzzles not loading & the current puzzles thumbnails to be the actual puzzle I'd be back to playing the app daily again & rating it 5 stars as it is the best puzzle app out there just has these few issues.
My favorite puzzle game
by BWB7 on 2017/12/17 07:15
I have had this game for some time now. It is my favorite puzzle game of all time. Just when I think it can not get better, they surprise me with an update that does enhance its quality even more. I enjoy how there are a plethora of puzzle pictures. Literally there is a option available for all tastes. I love how you can continue to play this game for free indefinitely as there is a free puzzle every day as well as free puzzle packs to play. On top of that there is a place where you can view puzzle packs for a price. The puzzle packs are very inexpensive and also offer a wide variety of design choices. Being able to pick how many pieces you want each of your puzzle to be, having the choice to rotate the pieces, being able to pick your background playing tabletop design, and so many other tactical options makes this application superior to the others. Thank you to the makers of this application for creating such a quality product that allows users to continue to play for free as long as they want or be able to pick packages at reasonable prices if desired.
Good fun gone bad Update
by TXChick512 on 2018/02/16 01:22
Mobilityware let me know that to reduce the data storage that this app uses, delete your completed puzzles. I could not find this at first, but the Completed Puzzles icon is in My Gallery located at the bottom of the home page. They also say you can delete the Trophy room, but I can't find that room on my iPad. It does not appear that they have plans to stop the advertising pop ups. So, I raise my rating to 4 stars. This is a great game. I love puzzles, but Mobilityware has destroyed this app. Or maybe Critical Hit did when they sold out. Either way, I strongly suggest you PLAY the FREE version. DO NOT PURCHASE this app, because you will still get advertising that interrupts your play, but worse than that, they don't control the cache that takes up all your data storage space. Their only solution is to delete all that you have purchased. I haven't purchased so many puzzles that it should be taking 8.4 GB (and growing every day I play) of my data storage. Beware! They should add a feature that removes cache when you reboot! Their only solution is to delete everything I've purchased. Very sad. Does anyone have a suggestion that they can't or won't provide?
Changes in your puzzles
by D.S. in Ohio on 2018/04/21 21:23
I have enjoyed doing puzzles on theJigsaw Puzzle app and purchased quite a few packs in the last two years since I got my I pad. But I do not like their recent changes. It was nice after finishing a puzzle to have the satisfaction of seeing the puzzle large for as long as I chose to look at my finished work. Now they flash it large for a second or two and then it goes small. I feel as though I barely get to focus in on my finished work in the large format! I also liked seeing the name of the puzzle after finishing it but have noticed that is not always there now. I am disappointed in their changes. I received a response from the makers of Jigsaw Puzzle within 48 hours of my above review. They were very courteous and explained I can see my finished puzzles in a large format and view them for as long as I wish under “completed puzzles” at the Jigsaw Puzzle site I use. Thank you for that information. I checked it and it does work just as you said! I am pleased. I upgrade my evaluation to 5 stars now! I really enjoy your puzzles!🙂. Thank you.
Updates are awful
by werrrfggytrrtyh4554433 on 2019/09/08 00:32
I have played this app for years and have purchased hundreds of puzzles, always enjoyed the experience. The last few updates have really made a mess of the whole puzzle experience. Every time a new update is issued it gets worse, most of it I can live with but the last one has caused puzzles that I have almost finished to start from the beginning! Just now I was returning to a puzzle that was 82% finished and when I went back into it, it wiped out what I did and I have to start all over, this is very annoying. I would give this game 5 stars but have knocked that down to two stars with all the trouble I have had with the current updates. Please fix this now! This continues to get worse everyday, I’m going to look for another app since you don’t seem to care if your app works or not. I would not recommend this to anyone! *****I have started the same puzzle three times and every time I leave the screen and then go back anything that have done is no longer there and I have to start over. Also it seems to delete the puzzle I completed previously and does not show it in the completed section! I have given this app many chances but I’m afraid that I will have to take my loses for all of the puzzle packs I have purchased and find another app that actually works.
Coins?!
by PugPuzzler on 2019/04/29 17:32
I think that they charge way too much for the puzzles tbh. There are free ones, but 3,990 coins for a puzzle pack? It would be different if you got more coins for completing a puzzle, but the most you can get is 36 coins for completing a 400 piece puzzle. You’d have to do an awful lot of puzzles just to be able to buy a puzzle pack. You get lots of puzzles in the packs, but maybe dial it down some! I get that they want people to buy coins, but there are plenty of people who can’t. I think that if they want to do better, I’d say to at least give more coins for the puzzles we complete. They have plenty of sales which is good, but they still range anywhere from 900 to 2,000 coins. Maybe add an option where you can just buy a single puzzle with coins? Above that, it’s an amazing game. For a while it wouldn’t let me do the daily free puzzle, but they fixed it. I like how it times you, to. I’m always trying to better my puzzle skills 😂. There’s no time limit, it just sees how long it takes you to complete it. I like that though. But yeah, make some changes with the coins, and you’ll get the fifth star ⭐️. But for now, ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ from me.
My Favorite App
by Elaine0400 on 2019/06/12 21:19
Jigsaw Puzzle is great for all ages. I wouldn’t change one thing. I have made 427 puzzles from August 4, 2017 to June 12, 2019. A free puzzle is offered every day. The selection of puzzle packages are endless and the prices are very low. You can pick how many pieces you want each puzzle divided into. My favorite is 121 pieces. You can start each puzzle with just the outside edges, by touching the little picture of a corner piece, then scatter them. All the other puzzle pieces will come automatically. The puzzle pieces are in the correct angle unless you want to have to turn them. Learn what all the little choices do when learning to do your first puzzle. Every puzzle you finish is saved so you can look at them anytime. Touch the little picture of the lock when you are moving the puzzle pieces to where they go. Then the puzzle will not move as you scoot each piece to where it goes. Jigsaw Puzzle is very relaxing. If you don’t finish the one you’re working on it will be saved until you are ready to work on it again.
Reliving my youth
by IODICE1341 on 2019/05/03 15:13
I just love this app! I have always loved doing puzzles from when I was a child. This app gives you one free puzzle each day or you can search the puzzle library for other free ones or many you can purchase. I complete one puzzle each day and whenever I have a free 10 minutes I work on my puzzle. Great fun! Try it....you will love it!! Still loving this app. I really love the puzzles with the bright colors. They are fun to do and the finished products are brilliant. I do at least one puzzle each day and it is very calming compared to the other games that drive me crazy. I really like the feature where you can resize the puzzle pieces. You can have 8 pieces or 300 pieces. Good for all ages!! Enjoy. I am adding a new comment today. I still love this app, however I got a new iPad recently and there was no way to retrieve my completed puzzles or my winning coins. I was able to retrieve my purchased puzzles but I am starting from scratch as far as completion goes. I am doing the same puzzles over again and I had to start from no coins when on my old iPad I had over 2000 coins. There must be a way to correct this flaw.
Warning: Family share doesn’t work and hasn’t for a long time
by SuzWanderer on 2019/03/16 17:38
Update: family share still doesn’t work. Stopped working a couple years ago!! The new update is good, though it seems a bit buggy, dragging pieces snags the piece about 1/4” away from where your finger touches down. Strange behaviors like loose pieces layering under snapped in pieces. Minor bugs I’m sure they’ll resolve soon. Really enjoy the token rewards to be used purchasing puzzle packs. I love this app, have really enjoy playing it on my iPad, for years. Unfortunately, the advertised family share feature used to work and I purchased many puzzles for my children to use under their own child Apple accounts. At some point in the last year family share stopped working. the developer has been notified nearly a month ago and it is still not resolved. They say it’s a known bug. It’s been 6 months since I brought it to their attention though and it’s still not resolved. Seems a bit questionable to me. Definitely they make more money if family share doesn’t work and each family member has to purchase their own puzzle packs, but then it shouldn’t be advertised as supporting family share.
Obnoxious Ads & Glitchy Playboard
by Inbodied on 2018/11/01 23:55
This is an update to my earlier review. In addition to the issues below, this latest update dropped me as a premium user and I was assaulted with obnoxious ads that I had to wait for until I could start playing my puzzle. After contacting support and asking why I was suddenly being inundated with ads after being ad free for several years, they sent me instructions about resigning in with my Apple ID. When that didn’t work, they insisted I prove to them that I had upgraded to the ad free version. Since I upgraded in 2013, that was no small feat. It took an hour of my day. I’m wondering how many others were purged and will pay to upgrade again rather than spend the time to find a receipt. Earlier review: After not playing for a while I'm back and even more disappointed. The puzzle pieces stick to the edge of the screen and no amount of coaxing will move them. Very frustrating. I love working jigsaw puzzles and this app was the best one I found when I first started playing. It appears to be getting glitchier with every update. The puzzle freezes and the pieces won't move for several seconds. I often have to close the app and relaunch. I'm also frustrated with the sensitivity of the touch screen. I go to move a piece and the puzzle moves instead.
No Customer Support
by eelissat on 2019/06/27 14:49
UPDATE: This issue has finally been resolved and I have added back stars for how much I love this app! I have been using and loving this app for a few months now. I love puzzles, and this is app is the most realistic I have found to working an actual puzzle. Because of this, I decided I was willing to spend some money to buy more puzzles, and I NEVER spend money on in-app purchases. Ever. But this time I did, and that’s where things went wrong. My purchase did not download. I have been charged, but received no product. I followed the steps on the FAQ page and still have not been able to acquire what I paid for (or my money back). I reached out twice in two different places to customer support asking for help. All I’ve been given is the same instructions that were already on the FAQ page that I had already followed and that did not work for me. I have not been able to get a response from anyone about my purchase. I am feeling frustrated and ignored, and I am kicking myself for breaking my no in-app purchase rule. All I can say is, I am so glad I did not spend a ton of money!
A couple of updates back
by Lucy Poppy on 2019/05/22 17:47
I had and still do really enjoy this app because jigsaw puzzles were a big family thing when I was growing up. A couple of updates back, maybe the first big update they did in sometime, I ended up with a completely white background. I sent in a question about it and I was told the only way to correct this was probably to unload and then reload the app, but to be very careful which version I chose because if I reloaded the wrong one, I might lose all the puzzles I have purchased. The choices were the free app with advertisements or the paid app with no advertisements. I didn’t pay for my app but I also don’t get any advertisements except for new puzzle packs. Since I buy quite a few puzzles, I’ve been afraid to take a chance on losing some or all of them. The white screen is only a problem when a puzzle has part or all of a white border. I love jigsaw puzzles, though, so I will stay with this app unless an update messes it up so that I can’t comfortably work with it. They put out some good puzzles.
Great App!
by IPTFAN on 2018/11/15 02:57
I have had this app for quite a while now and really enjoy it. I like that you can make the puzzles more difficult by selecting the piece rotation before you build your puzzle but I wish this would work in reverse after you have already started a puzzle. I took my own photo, an upgrade that allows for unlimited puzzles which is great, however the picture I chose is very difficult, I have invested hours and hours trying to complete it, and I am getting very frustrated. If I could shut off the piece rotation I would be more likely to try to finish the puzzle. As things are now, I never will. Puzzles available for purchase are reasonably priced and there is a lot of variety. The upgrade to take my own pictures was too. World of Color collections are great! Some collections have too few puzzles in them, I usually download only those with more puzzles. A recent upgrade making it easy to find the edge pieces is wonderful! The background option is really nice too, so you can change backgrounds based on the colors in the puzzle for contrast. However, I find I use mostly a few select backgrounds as they work well with most puzzles. Another thing I would like to see is to be able to move "piles." When I sort based on matching pieces it would be great if I could move a whole pile to one side of the board before laying them out rather than having to move each piece one at a time. Thanks for a relaxing, enjoyable puzzle app with many choices available!
Love it but it’s glitchy
by AEQ30 on 2018/10/31 02:53
I really love this app and use it almost everyday to pass time during a break between meetings or unwind before bed. I have two issues though that drive nuts. The first issue is that sometimes after choosing a new puzzle and the tile size, an ad will run (which is fine no big deal) however once the ad finishes, it takes me back to the same set up screen. From this screen the only thing I’m able to do is X out and then start all over. After I choose the tile size again and watch another ad, I’m then taken to the puzzle. The second (and far more annoying) issue is that sometimes I’ll be doing a puzzle and all of a sudden I’ll be taken to the App Store. I try to switch back to the puzzle but once selected, I’m again taken back to the App Store. The only way to kill this irritating cycle is to close the app then close the App Store and then relaunch Jigsaw. I’m not sure if it only happens on the iPhone X or what the issue is, but it’s wicked annoying. Lastly, and this is just a request not a complaint, I would love a tile option larger than 400 on the iPhone.
Updates unsatisfactory.
by labrys35 on 2019/03/25 00:35
I have had this app for years and I have used it a lot. I love it. Just now, though, I am frustrated with the updates I just loaded. The “scatter” function is sending several pieces so far to the edge that it is difficult to grab them to move them without closing the window in error or pulling up the tool bar. Also, the “click” that happens when a piece is locked in place is louder - may be thought to be clearer - but it annoys me. I will continue playing as I love being able to do the puzzles with no lost pieces and no interference from my cats. Some of the features I like are being able to separate out the edge pieces, scattering pieces out of the center of the desktop, and having a free puzzle offered every day. I like the addition of the coins so that I may earn free puzzle packs. One thing that is a misconnect right now is that if I have done a puzzle which later is in a puzzle pack I download, the app does not recognize that it has been done by me, so I would need to do it again in order to complete the pack. But that is a minor irritation that I will live with.
updated to three stars
by Norm M on 2019/01/01 13:57
I enjoy doing jigsaw puzzles (find it a relaxing pastime) but am rating it 3 (up from two) because There are many features that I like, but the two things I dislike are: When using scatter feature, pieces often scatter to edges of background. The background and puzzle don’t lock, so playing area often gets larger “by accident”, so have to re-adjust puzzle size several times...The lock feature is on but (perhaps this is for pieces) I like the feature of making image & table larger/smaller, but...Also, I requested common or botanical names be used to ID flora, (I use developers puzzles, not my own, so I can learn) the developer(s) get free puzzles from the web & uses web descriptions (eg: Two Yellow Flowers). I think this is laziness. After my complaint, My husband rec’d an email saying this would be addressed. It was ignored. Then he rec’d an email asking to increase his (my) rating. Please don’t send toyuniverses anymore emails. (I use my husband’s Apple ID in App Store). Also, in “Best of Europe II” set, if you use the edge option, the puzzle becomes B&W (red color disappears) in “Red Telephone Booths in Scotland”., a bug Carol C. aka WoofWoof
Undo the “fixes”
by Js Daughter on 2019/03/16 14:55
I’ve had this app for over a year and play it a lot. Love the puzzles and variety of pictures. I like the most difficult 400 piece puzzle... challenging but fun! For me, this was a 4-5 star app but now it’s a 2 and that’s generous! A few days ago when I opened this app, there was a notice that a few “upgrades” had been done along with a few “fixes”. Well whatever these upgrades and fixes were, they need to be UNDONE! This has become the most irritating game I have. The pieces are very difficult to move now. If you don’t touch them exactly right (not sure how that is because it seems to change), your entire picture moves as if that piece had been locked into place. And it’s now very difficult to actually move the piece into the correct place and have it lock in. This so-called fix has made it so frustrating it’s not enjoyable anymore. I spend way too much time moving the entire puzzle back to the center of the screen because it’s been pulled over when I’ve tried to move one piece...which happens with almost every piece I try to move. If this can’t be fixed or undone, I’ll have to give up the app. Too bad...it was one of my favorites.
Bad update
by Pilitinamiao on 2019/07/14 15:50
Edit Summer 2019: I followed the recommendation to update the iPad operating software and it helped some but still overheats the iPad. I found a solution by accident while traveling, though. If I put it in airplane mode while playing the puzzle, it runs smoothly and doesn’t overheat. So I am increasing the score from 3 to 4 stars. The spring 2019 update has made the game unplayable on my iPad mini 2. It is now slow and jerky, overheats my device, and crashes occasionally. Whatever updates were made are too processor intensive. The two I noticed are: improving the rotation point of the piece, and improving the scatter function to reduce overlap. Both are great ideas, but not if I can no longer play. It’s a shame because I did like the game. There is a free daily puzzle. You can cut the puzzle into between 4 and 1000 pieces. You can opt to have piece rotation on or off. The puzzle functions are easy and natural. You can earn points by completing puzzles, which can be spent on new puzzle packs. I usually did 400 piece puzzles with rotation on, to maximize the points earned.
Downloaded Puzzles not opening up
by elisexclusive on 2019/05/09 15:51
l am super disappointed. Everyone knows how long it takes to get 4,000 coins to be able to finally download puzzles you are anxious to play if you don’t purchase them. l finally got over 4,000 + coins & ended up downloading Two Puzzle Packs that were on sale World of Color V, and “Colorful Cocktails.” The World of color V pack downloaded just fine to my puzzles and l am able to play it. However, l downloaded the “Colorful Cocktail,” puzzle pack and it says its downloaded and (Tap to open to play) but it will not open. l have tried several times now. Even by shutting down the app entirely and re-opening it and it still will not open but says it is downloaded to my puzzles. I am super irritated that l just spent an extra 1,990 coins on this Colorful Cocktail puzzle pack that refuses to open!! This is the first time this has happened to me, but it’s ridiculous that l cannot open the puzzle pack that l just spent pretty much the rest of my coins on! Now what am l supposed to do if l can’t trust all puzzle packs to actually download to my puzzles correctly; where they may not open up when spending my coins on them????! My rating because of that just dropped drastically...
Fun but... ( I formally remove "but...")
by PWhitJr on 2017/12/27 09:44
I enjoy working the puzzles. It sparks my creativity. Unfortunately, when finished, I hate to discard them. This stems from my experience in Architecture class where I wanted to keep my project while everyone else enjoyed destroying theirs. Update: I discovered the page that shows all the puzzles I have completed, so I get to keep them after all. I have a friend of Polish descent, so I send him the ones of Poland that I complete. The only problem I have is I have to write down the location pictured before I work the puzzle. 2nd update: I also work another puzzle that has the pieces at the side to scroll through. Those pieces are too small to see the detail. I prefer this setup with space to arrange most if not all of the pieces on the workspace to the sides. Sometimes, after finishing the border, I put together groups until they can connect to the border. All the pieces remain the same size regardless of their location. The flashing is not necessary but it confirms proper location.
Pretty Good
by LeoFlash on 2017/12/29 08:18
Overall, this app is like having a regular, old-fashioned picture puzzle anywhere you go. But sometimes, it’s hard to get pieces to move - it may take several tries to pick up a piece to move it. And trying to zoom sometimes moves pieces instead, as also can happen while trying to scroll while zoomed in. Or the wrong piece will get grabbed occasionally. But it’s nice to be able to toggle between number of pieces in a puzzle; it’s your choice as to how difficult a puzzle is to put back together. And the option to maintain the piece orientation is nice - being on a smartphone means a small screen, and it can take a lot of time just to sort pieces or scroll-drag-scroll-drag a piece while zoomed in, so smaller/more pieces means extra effort and time. For such things, it would be nice to be able to “hold” a piece while you move it from one side of the puzzle to the other while zoomed in. Also nice to have would be a draggable tray to gather a type/color/whatever pieces in. It’s still hard to stop work on a puzzle once you start, tho!
Terrible User-Interface
by CAD Programmer on 2019/04/12 13:54
This app drives me nuts with its awful detection of where I’m touching the screen. It is CONSTANTLY grabbing the wrong pieces, selecting pieces far away from where my finger is actually touching the screen. It also gets “stuck” in a pan mode (scrolling the puzzle instead of moving a piece) which is absolutely obnoxious! Very frustrating user-interface!! There is a LOT of lag caused by a constantly updating ad banner, and the app is a MAJOR battery hog draining your device down to zero in less time than it takes to complete a 400-piece puzzle (about 25 minutes for me). And forget about temporarily switching to a different app or taking a call - the app crashes whenever it loses focus. Seriously. (And this is AFTER the “bug fixes” update!) Also, ever since the last “update”, the app is HORRENDOUSLY SLOW, all graphics reduced in size, and Objectives is always “not available”. It seems like just blunder after blunder with this software. (Maybe coded by ex-Apple employees?) There are WAY too many ads, freeze-ups, and crashes to rate anything higher than one star. If the performance issues aren’t resolved within 30 days (plenty of time for competent programmers) I will be deleting the app. Update: Deleted the app - it is AWFUL!!
Great, but needs a couple more fixes...
by Puzzler80202 on 2018/01/07 04:44
I really enjoy this app, and spend quality time doing the puzzles. Since the number of pieces was increased (which I really liked) there needs to be a way to select more in-between options in the higher counts. Right now, it makes huge jumps in the count, such as from from 400 to 625. I have done a couple of the 625 and 900, but I would really like more choices in these ranges. I chose a 900 count for a picture with great detail, and got really frustrated, it was just too much. Would love to have counts for 450, 500, 550, 600, etc going up to your max. Also the hint button is a very nice improvement, but it would be better if it just put the piece into the puzzle, and not have the two step process. Also would like a function in which if you hold down the hint button, it places pieces sequentially, and is easy to control, like on another PC jigsaw puzzle program I have. This way, when I regret choosing a 900 piece puzzle, I can speed up the hints! Thank you for improving the app and listening to my suggestions.
Back to the best!
by clbo1973 on 2019/03/20 16:47
***I’m updating my review. The makers of the game quickly responded to the complaints about an update. They did another update today and fixed the problems. Thanks for listening!!! I’m so happy!! This really is the best puzzle game. I’ve played them all. I kept coming back to this one. You get a free puzzle daily. I love the puzzle pack choices, the layout, and functionality. If you love jigsaw puzzles, this is the app to get! I’m so not loving the latest update. I find myself getting super frustrated and just having to take a break. The fluidity of moving the puzzle pieces has changed. The pieces are hard to grab and move to the right place. I try to grab a piece and the board moves around. This app has gone from a relaxing, enjoyable one to one that raises my blood pressure. Why fix something if it wasn’t broken? I just purchased several packs a couple of weeks ago. Bummer! Please consider changes things back. 🙏🏻 Before the update, I would’ve given 5 stars.

I have been working ur puzzles for four years. Love them. But today us the first time I have had the request to buy free ads and the first time I have had to out up with ads. Just wondering what the deal us ???? Why after 4 years am I getting thus stuff. Not a happy camper !!! Oct 28 I went ahead and bought the 4.99 package deal that said I would have 3 groups of puzzles and no ads. But now all my puzzle that I had out there , that I had already bought, have all disappeared and all I have now is the three that came with the buying of the so called freeing of the ads. Where did my puzzles go. What is going on. Loved doing my puzzles but am not happy that the ones I already purchased and have not worked r gone. Also the area that tells u if u have tried different size puzzles has all disappeared also. Not happy. I hate to have to quit working the puzzles but I want my puzzles back that I have already spent money on. Would appreciate some kind of answer ,
If it ain’t broke....
by @45fgb on 2017/12/14 23:34
I reviewed before and gave 5 stars, after trying several puzzle apps, I decided this was the best. Eventually I bought the enhanced version, mostly to get rid of the flashing ads, but the other features were good as well, especially background options. Anyway I was happily puzzling away, probably more than I should, until the last update which scatters the pieces more evenly. Great idea, but...a bunch of them end up under the control bar, and have to be moved out. That’s okay I guess, I usually just do it right away as I begin to sort. What’s been lost here is the ability to rescatter as I am working, without losing the sorting, because pieces just fly all over and back out to the edges instead of just clearing the frame and staying in relatively the same order that they were. Anyway, I just never use that feature after the first scatter unless I have almost everything nailed down. I hope I have described the problem clearly and that there may be a way to fix it, or return to the previous method.
