I love this app. It’s easy for my almost 3 year old. I’ve increased the difficulty for my 6 yr old and I find it most relaxing to do ne every day. Sometimes I’ll do 2. I also love the variety of subjects. Thanks for an easy to manage app.
Too many advertisements
by tortmom on 2020/09/21 03:23
This app used to be a good one, but now there are too many advertisements. If you try to do anything; change puzzles, finish one, etc., it keeps throwing up advertisement after advertisement. Drives me crazy. It’s bad enough you have to pay for puzzles, but to have to click through ads is just irritating.
Relaxing game
by cfrankieh on 2020/09/21 03:00
Enjoy the puzzles relaxing beautiful sceneries animals and many more interesting puzzles do recommend.
Too many ads
by miswit on 2020/09/20 22:36
I’ve been playing this game for years, and spending money in app as well. But I’ve had it. There are too many ads intruding on playing what used to be an ad-free game. I’m done.
Awesome game
by izzie baer 🐻 on 2020/09/20 21:35
I love this game because I love puzzles. A lot so this game is so much fun. I would recmend it . I hope YOU get this game😍😍😍🥰🥰🥰
Review Jigsaw Puzzles
by BMooreandTali on 2020/09/20 15:55
I really love this app and I find doing a puzzle is an excellent way to wind down. Having said that, how can I use all of the credits I have earned to purchase more puzzles?
Update Removed Purchasing Options
by MandyD37 on 2020/09/20 07:40
I’ve been playing this app for a while and enjoying it, but a recent update removed the ability to use in-game earned coins to purchase most puzzle packs. Now there are only a few that have that option instead of being able to use them on any pack. This is extremely disappointing and really disincentivizes earning any coins. Why bother? I have a lot saved up I was hoping to use but now I can only use them on a handful of puzzle packs.
Robbed by ads.
by Papa_Ray on 2020/09/20 03:32
I hate all the constant ads.
Too many commercials
by Nursehup on 2020/09/20 01:56
I love the game and the great puzzles but hate having to listen to those 30 second commercials. We should not be subject to them!,,
Purchase Puzzles with points
by GoodTreats on 2020/09/20 00:43
I really love playing your puzzles and winning points is a fun challenge for me. My problem is you have reduce the amount of puzzle packages that can be purchased with points. THERE ARE VERY FEW PUZZLE PACKAGES TO PURCHASE WITH POINTS...GIVE US MORE!
Updates have made the game worse!
by akwa8894 on 2020/09/19 18:24
Since the last update, the game has a ton more ads. You have to click out of 2 or 3 before selecting a puzzle, then 2-3 more before you can play. In addition, when you are down to one last puzzle piece, the size of the puzzle and piece shrinks. These are not good changes!

Puzzles I paid for gone!
by Olliesgigi on 2020/09/19 02:19
I had to get a new iPad because the battery died on the one I had. When I redownloaded the Puzzle App the latest puzzle packs I had purchased were not in the restore puzzles list nor were they in My Puzzles. Pretty upset that I was cheated out of all the money I spent on puzzle packs!!
Was my favorite
by Sherika13 on 2020/09/18 21:01
I am a fan- have been playing for several years. Last night i logged off, saving my current puzzle. Logging on this morning all my saved daily puzzles were gone as was the progress i had made in all my puzzle packs. Including the Tour free starter pack! What happened?! Only one complaint other than the confusion above- I have over 7,000 coins and nothing to buy that I dont already have- more coin- based purchases, please
Trouble!
by JLR62 on 2020/09/18 20:26
Please add more puzzles to use points! There are hardly any!
Disappointed in developer response
by Katlarue on 2020/09/18 17:09
I love doing these puzzles. Do multiple puzzles everyday. However, when I rated 4 stars and said I was unhappy that lately There are very few puzzles that can be purchased with credit. The developer responded that they never used credit. I took a screenshot of a message that came up on the game on , 9/17/2020. It says “Enough Credits for a pack. Tap to go to The Store.” Apparently the response or the responder was uninformed. My disappointment is the same, very few puzzles are available to buy with my 4,000+ credits, earned partially by watching ads.
Good pass time but...
by Bon Vie on 2020/09/18 12:45
Why, why, why did you add that annoying ‘last piece’ micro puzzle piece placement? It adds nothing positive to completing the puzzle. Is there an option to turning this unwanted feature off? I used the option to disable the trays, thanks for that bit of info. I’ve enjoyed this game, which features lots of options, for a few years now. The recent changes baffle me. Why isn’t the tray an option? It simply takes up space and isn’t necessary for working the puzzles. And, I chose a puzzle site because I like puzzles. If I wanted to play games, I’d go to a game site.
Bug or feature?
by GaiaLady on 2020/09/18 03:56
Edited: Recently, when I get to the last piece, the screen jumps to un-zoomed mode and it highlights the last piece. Why? That’s what “scatter” is for. The jumping screen is hard on the eyes, and I can find the last piece for myself. I call this a bug. Please let me play my own game. I don’t need help, especially when it literally hurts. Addendum: PLEASE stop moving the screen around. The turning of the whole screen as the app comes up is hard on the eyes, and can make some people dizzy. I have reduced my rating to 3 stars. If you don’t reverse this trend I will stop playing this game. 2nd addendum: PLEASE stop making the screen jump at the end of my puzzle! It only detracts from the game. It hurts my eyes. It’s completely unnecessary. It’s a bug. Fix it.
Help
by Usarmy21 on 2020/09/18 00:57
I really love this app but now my pieces are at the bottom instead of on the side. I hate this. How do I change it back
Puzzles good incessant ads an annoyance
by sjgtucson on 2020/09/17 22:27
The constant pushing of puzzles between screens, sometimes two in a row, is pathetic. If you don’t have a puzzle app yet, consider this when shopping
Love your app
by sunnyGMama on 2020/09/17 21:33
The best jigsaw puzzle app ! I have had this app since 2016. The past few months I have had the app close on me, and sometimes a black screen will appear after watching an ad. Even rebooting my iPad doesn’t always help. Any ideas what may be happening. Hope this can be solved. I have enjoyed all the puzzles and the extra contest to win puzzles and points. Thanks for making this a great app!
So much fun!!
by peppppppppppsssss on 2020/09/17 20:00
It’s the best game ever!
Jigsaw puzzle by Mobility Ware
by granny's usable on 2020/09/17 18:27
You are coming close to getting me to ditch Magic Puzzles. They are having so many technical issues with their ads and so many frills and extras which are not necessary. One problem I have with you is, why can’t we use our earned coins to buy sets of puzzles. It would give me incentive to build more and use more pieces. The screen always seems crowded. I love all your games and think you could make this site much better What is the point in letting us earn coins if we can’t use them to get puzzle packs? I don’t understand.
Menu bar issues
by Kathielo on 2020/09/17 10:20
I am totally addicted Howto puzzles. Love the app and most things about it. can you please make it so the menu bar can be moved to another position, I keep hitting it accidentally and it changes the background color. I would love to be able to lock my background color. I find most of the bright colors are difficult to look at. It would be great if once you hide the menu bar it stays hidden until you call it up again yourself. Or at least be able to put it in another spot on the screen so it is out of the way of your hands.It is in a terrible place for right handed people. Thanks. Kathieo Ok...8 months later and no action on my previous suggestion. Can't give it 5 stars until menu issue is corrected. Thanks. Today i sent a custom puzzle or my granddaughter. she got a link but that my took her to the app and she couldn’t see the puZzle I sent. How do i you see custom puzzles sent by someone else?

Love APP, Not Happy that I can’t use coins anymore!
by ITS SCARY DELETED! on 2020/09/16 17:19
I love this app, however, previously, I could use my coins to buy new puzzle packs and now there are almost no packs that can be purchased with coins! AND now ads pop up even when I am doing a puzzle that I purchased with my Apple ID account. It’s very frustrating! Also, it would be nice to be able to save puzzle packs to favorites so I can go back and find the ones I have been saving my coins for when I am ready to buy a new one.
Awesome

This is a great way to exercise your brain and it helps pass the time at doctor’s office
Relaxing
by Claudia 2018 on 2020/09/16 13:40
Love doing these puzzles everyday! Very relaxing and love that I can choose the amount of pieces I want to do!
Decent puzzles, excessive advertising
by Jane Ellen+ on 2020/09/16 01:44
The puzzles are enjoyable, but if one doesn’t make the in-app purchase the amount of advertising has become excessive- multiple ads before and after. I used to enjoy this app, but I’m done.
Interrupt
by golfer dick on 2020/09/16 00:44
When I'm working on a puzzle, the program stops and goes back to the main menu at least three times which means I have to start all over again. It's a huge waste of time
Re: Jigsaw
by PianoladyJS on 2020/09/15 15:23
This is such a well thought out app. I enjoy always having interesting new pictures. Thank you for providing one of my all time favorite apps!
LOVE THIS APP!
by Kim Greer on 2020/09/15 12:49
I love puzzle! It’s so enjoyable to me! Especially these last couple months that’s I’ve been confined to the house because of a major surgery I just went through! I do wish there were more FREE puzzles since I can’t afford another bill cuz of my medical bills etc! And, it would be awesome if there was a way to make the free puzzles easier to find for those of us who enjoy the puzzles & can’t afford to spend any more money! Just a suggestion! Keep up the great work & thank you for making an app that’s really enjoying plus it makes you THINK! And in my old age I need to think & I need enjoyment!!
Quarantine lifesaver!
by Hoosier mom on 2020/09/15 11:27
Being isolated can be a nightmare without something to keep my mind occupied. This app is exactly what I needed to simultaneously stimulate my intellect and calm my anxiety. It’s also perfect for quiet evenings before bed or tucked in a dimly lit room beside a cheerful fire. The puzzle choices are incredible! There are MANY free puzzles and free daily challenges that earn enough credits for adding to my collection in addition to the huge variety of puzzle artists for any taste or age to enjoy. I appreciate the regular updates and maintenance that keep the app compatible with my IOS. You people rock! I plan to seek out other games and apps developed by your company in the future. Thank you for such a wonderful and delightful app.
Too many pop up windows
by Keeker83 on 2020/09/15 08:51
Annoying pop up windows make this app less relaxing than it used to be.
Hate the update
by cjscrabbler on 2020/09/15 06:53
With as many puzzle packages that I have purchased, I shouldn’t have to click past ads every time I play. Open the app - puzzle ads. Finish a puzzle - puzzle ads. It’s beyond ridiculous. I love the puzzles, but hate the ads. GET RID OF THE ADS! THIS APP JUST FROZE ON ME AND I HAD TO DELETE AND REINSTALL IT. THIS RESULTED IN MY LOSING ALL MY COINS (which seem to be worthless now anyway) AND ALL THE PROGRESS IN MY PUZZLE PACKS. WITH THE MONEY I’VE SPENT ON THIS APP, I EXPECT BETTER. The 1 star stands because of the ridiculous ads and pop ups at EVERY move!
Wasted Money
by Freshface1 on 2020/09/15 01:56
Have enjoyed this game for a while and bought many puzzle packs. Now game will not open and cannot play anymore. Very disappointing! No help from developers.
Best Jigsaw Puzzle
by WPlatin on 2020/09/15 01:44
I have tried many jigsaw puzzle apps over the years and this one is the best by far. Very enjoyable and offers a great variety of puzzles and levels.
Worse with time
by puzzeled one on 2020/09/14 22:00
Used to be my favorite app worth 5 star rating plus some. With each update it has declined. More and more pop ups. You used to be able to purchase nice puzzle packs with coins you earn. Now they constantly want you to watch adds to get more coins, but offer you only a few uninteresting puzzles packs to redeem with them. I still enjoy putting the puzzles together regardless.
Excellent
by nik@nyte on 2020/09/14 17:41
I love it Addictive, play it every chance I get
Redeeming puzzle point
by Sally Anne 10 on 2020/09/14 02:08
I’m told I can buy new packs with my free points but when I hit the button there are no packs to claim, just the pay-for packs. I hit one by mistake and I was charged for the puzzle pack and I still have my free points. Not user friendly. I would like someone to contact me regarding this. Thank you.
STOP the splash screens - I PAID for this app.
by Michele K nyc on 2020/09/13 23:25
I don’t want to have to X out three splash screens to do a puzzle... so annoying that I barely even do puzzles on this app anymore. ALSO THAT FLICKERING LAST PUZZLE PIECE 😡 who thought of that awful feature? This app used to be fun which is why I BOUGHT IT. Waste of money and ads left and right... that’s supposed to be in the FREE VERSION.
Having fun while using my noodle!!!
by Jacobs grandma on 2020/09/13 21:01
At my age, word puzzles are great brain fodder but having fun makes for a happy balance! Thanks
Great app, but too many ads even WITH paid version
by Madeocar on 2020/09/13 17:33
I really like this app, so much so that I bought the premium upgrade which allows you to turn any photo into a puzzle. That mean literally limitless puzzle possibilities! BUT I’m still subject to TONS of ads in between puzzles despite the fact that I PAID for this app. May as well have just kept the free version. They do a good job of releasing free puzzles fairly often and offering discounts on paid puzzle packs, so just save yourself the money and use the free version. Being subject to ads after paying for an app is BS. If it weren’t for that, I’d give 5 stars.
My favorite puzzle app
by mom2jaar on 2020/09/13 15:21
I enjoy the variety of puzzles available. The free daily puzzles are great!
CAN YOU KNOCK IT OFF WITH THE ADS???
by prismnism on 2020/09/13 15:02
I paid for the ad free version of this app. It’s ANNOYING to log in to be greeted by the constant bombarding of play this, play that. NO!! LET ME PLAY IN PEACE!!!
Complaint
by indy puzzle girl on 2020/09/13 13:15
You need to have more puzzles available to get with the money we get from working the puzzles. There are so few to download.
Disappointed
by gg2733g on 2020/09/13 04:16
Recently you started pointing out the last piece. I hate it and am ready to find a better puzzle app. I feel like I am playing with a cheat who takes one piece until the puzzle is done and then tries to show off. I don’t do puzzles with them either. At least allow me to turn it off!!!!!!!
BEST JIGSAW PUZZLE EVER!
by Linda at homr on 2020/09/12 21:59
I have tried several different jigsaw puzzles and they can’t compare to this one! So many beautiful puzzles to choose from! I especially like that the pieces aren’t in a tray; I can have all of them around the playing board so I can see them all at once instead of having to pull them one at a time from the tray. I work at least one puzzle every day.
Used to be great until the ads got out of control
by moorempw on 2020/09/12 15:34
Loved this game. Bought many, many puzzles and played daily. Now I can’t stand the game— opening the app gives you three glaring ads, one right after the other. Ads are everywhere and block the screen. They made money off my purchases and then decided they need more money— not cool.
Best puzzle app going, but
by asgheller on 2020/09/12 14:57
Took a while to get everything back to my settings. I’m numb to all the stuff that has nothing to do with jigsaw puzzles and getting rid of the ads is not something to pay for. Other than that it’s fine. Only 4 stars because no one is perfect. Just keep your programmers on task. If you want to have them make the app work better, fine. Otherwise stop the nonsense and focus on the puzzles.
Not as good as it used to be
by elf hby riv on 2020/09/12 14:39
The ads will hijack your puzzle for several minutes and often freezes the app for hours. Puzzle choices are not as good either, except the expensive ones.
Continuing bad updates
by filmbuff2 on 2020/09/12 13:49
I have come to hate this app. I love doing the puzzles and the options for play are excellent. Ads and popups and banners ad nauseum have ruined the game for me. It has become stressful rather than relaxing. Don’t need that. I’ve given it 2 stars because once you’re in the puzzle itself it’s great. Before and after it’s trash.
Love the App...getting annoyed with ads and pop ups
by DoveCall on 2020/09/12 13:40
I have had this App for a long time and it is by far my favorite because I love doing puzzles. I love that I can do them anytime anywhere. I love my Saturday morning coffee and puzzle time and my everyone else is in bed puzzle time. However, you are ruining it with pop ups and advertising. I initially paid for this App to avoid this very thing and it was great for a long time. Then you started with the pop up screens when I launch the App and I put up with it because I love the App so much. Only now you keep adding advertising more and more and it’s ruining the whole thing. It looks like my initial payment for the App only got me so far. This used to be so nice and stress free; I miss that.
Clicking to get to puzzle
by Spemmy on 2020/09/12 12:37
I used to love this app but I am very annoyed with having to click through 3, 4, and even 5 ads before I can even get to my puzzle. I paid for this app. Most apps you pay for you can use ad free. I am very close to abandoning this app for another one.
Puzzle Credits
by Gmtwretrd on 2020/09/12 10:54
Update: I appreciate your response but don’t appreciate that you’ve apparently changed the vast majority of puzzles to money payment-only. And with no warning. Also, there certainly is not a large selection of puzzles in the treasure chest. Now we are stuck with virtually worthless credits. What a shame. Have you done away with being able to purchase puzzles using credits? I never see that option anymore.
Diversity
by RDun on 2020/09/12 03:30
Love your puzzles however in this time would like to see more ethnic diversity.
Too Many Pop Ups!!
by BFT1990 on 2020/09/12 03:19
I love this jigsaw and have been playing it for years. This is my first review. There are too many pop ups for stuff that totally doesn't interest me. Veronica and Archie? Other games that I’m not going to play because I’m trying to play this one? My objectives that I didn’t set and don’t want? I just counted 7 pop ups for one puzzle!!! You are ruining a perfectly good product with unnecessary crap. This app is going downhill fast. Does anybody read these reviews?
Franni B
by Bboboh on 2020/09/12 01:55
I love doing jigsaw puzzles and this has a good selection, but the pieces are too small.
Having fun
by Milfordp on 2020/09/12 01:23
There are many choices of puzzle pieces so you can enjoy more fun!
Disappointed in new ad banners
by Denver mom of two on 2020/09/12 00:10
I like this app. I thought I had paid for a non ad version. However, recently they are getting pushier and pushier with their pop ups before I can even start. Now there’s a banner ad that doesn’t allow you to click the “X”. No matter where you click to get rid of it, it transfers you to safari followed by the App Store. I may find a new way to spend my time because after one day, I’m already sick of it and done.
My favorite puzzle app
by sandieleesiTouch on 2020/09/11 22:30
What is the point of all these ways to earn coins when the amount of puzzles available to buy with the coins is minimal?
Jigsaw Puzzles
by Genealogylady1965 on 2020/09/11 20:42
I love these Jigsaw Puzzles! I do them everyday! They’re not as easy as they look but, they’re sure a lot of fun!
Terrible update!
by TheGardenatrix on 2020/09/11 20:08
Too many pop-up ads and not enough puzzles to buy with coins.
Playability
by Pkoof14 on 2020/09/11 18:52
I play all the time. These cheap developers have removed almost every opportunity to use the coins that you earn playing. Not like it used to be.
New iPad
by Bulldogford on 2020/09/11 16:19
I recently bought a new iPad. When I downloaded Jigsaw Puzzle, I had lost all my coins. Worse, when I tried to restore, several of my puzzle packs were not there! I tried restarting both old and new iPads and I tried deleting all current packs from the old one. Nothing helped! It irritates me that coins won’t buy most puzzle packs now. It seems like you have broken faith with your users!
Bothersome ads
by Riki0911 on 2020/09/11 16:02
I can’t understand why I’m seeing ads when playing puzzles I’ve paid for. I understand having to watch ads when I play a free puzzle, but not when playing puzzles I paid for. I love this app and have been play it frequently, but I’ve been straying away from it because of the ads.
Paying for ad free will not work
by use your common sense on 2020/09/11 14:54
Paid for ad free and after an update have more ads. Rip off
!!!???
by xbchrkgmhorhebslf on 2020/09/11 14:39
I have been doing jigsaw puzzle app since 2013 and I have loved it until the last couple years. I hate the pop-up ads every time I go in to do a puzzle or continue a puzzle. I have not been happy with many of the new changes you have made in the last few years, but it doesn’t matter because you cannot turn them off nor do you put things back the way they were. I apologize for being so negative and this is Unfortunately the best puzzle app I have found yet with the exception of the things I have mentioned if I could turn them off it would make it a lot easier to continue to love and less frustrating. I am now even more frustrated as I don’t want to put in a nickname and any name I do put in apparently is taken and I can’t send it without one, talk about being frustrated which I also can’t use because it is taken. Didn’t matter whether I have a name or not you asked for comments I’m trying to give you one and then I can’t send it.
Messed up the game
by Vircig on 2020/09/11 12:03
I have loved this app and playing the various puzzles for close to 2 years. When I first downloaded the app, I paid for the ad free version. I started getting ads about 4 - 6 months ago which was annoying but not as bad as if I didn’t have the ad free version. Then, when they updated the app at the end of August, it now gets stuck when I try to claim coins. There is a VIP / ??? Box at the top of my screen that will not go away and freezes the app. Very disappointing!!!!!!!!!!!
Jigsaw puzzle
by idonwannagiveminam on 2020/09/11 11:39
I am bummed that you no longer allow us to buy puzzle packs with our gold coins. There are a small selection but most are not available anymore that way. Too much advertising breaking in while you are doing stuff. This app has not improved, it has gotten a little worse. It used to be my favorite so I am a little sad.
GREAT puzzles but.....
by LCLCLCx on 2020/09/11 11:31
......too many pop ups, rewards, etc. I paid the fee to remove ads, but still end up clicking and closing 6-7 times each time I start or finish a puzzle. I just want to relax with a puzzle!
Fun
by Ginger Prime on 2020/09/11 06:37
This a fun puzzle game
New features
by Brugmansia1 on 2020/09/11 05:30
Sooooo many ads for product, to play jigsaw games, earning points that you have to take before you can move on. Really do not like the isolated last piece. Love the jigsaw, not happy with all of the extras. Any way to play a straight game?
Drains battery after latest update

This used to be my favorite app. I timed it the other day, it drained a full battery in 14 minutes. It also takes forever to load. It’s not my battery, I can play other games for hours.
Good puzzle app but too many ads!
by Chris367864435778 on 2020/09/11 04:20
I would rate this five stars if there weren’t ads popping up all the time. Why did I pay for this if I still get so many ads?! Now it’s not just ads for more puzzles but it’s banner ads for other games! Please stop!
Very Fun
by Sub view on 2020/09/11 04:04
These are so much fun. There are a lot more fun than an actual puzzle. We can’t lose the pieces we can magnify them so you can see them better! And the color selections are just the prettiest we really enjoy these.
Everything changed
by 2knit on 2020/09/11 03:47
I loved this app for years. The updates were easy to get used to but the latest one has completely changed everything. I can only work on one puzzle at a time, the bar at the bottom of the screen has disappeared, I can’t go between the home screen and the current puzzle, everything froze before this all started. I hope they go back to the way it was and make it more user friendly. It used to be a great app. Now I can’t use it. ADDENDUM: I got rid of the app and then reinstalled it. I played around with the preferences and don’t know what I did but it doesn’t freeze up and the task bar is back. Not crazy about the flash when the piece moves or the last piece “sparkle” but otherwise I can use it again.
Fun except popups
by time out puzzler on 2020/09/11 01:59
This app has great puzzles, decent prices, and a free one every day. I bought the app that was supposed to stop the ads, but the problem is the own app’s ads! There are sometimes up to five different windows that pop up in front of the puzzle I am trying to work on. And some of the offers, like my progress, are totally annoying. I am not competing with myself. I like to do puzzles to relax at the end of the day. I wish there was an option to turn that off and reduce the ads.
Now it's way too intrusive
by TJPitibull on 2020/09/11 00:52
Ok, supposed to be relaxing, but excessive ads, becoming progressively more intrusive in more and more ways, to the point of becoming useless as an activity all together. All that being done for the "privilege" of completing puzzles I have purchased. No Thank you. If u fix it, let me know.
Too many ads!
by Anne & Kurt on 2020/09/10 23:58
I pay for the puzzles and I’m tired of ads being all over them now.
Ads

I paid to not have ads but constantly being shown ads. Waste of money.
Great game

I love it I would give it 5 star⭐️ but too many ads
A puzzle in your head
by Patti Chatti on 2020/09/10 16:30
The puzzles play fast and are fun and you can race with yourself for finishing it quickly.
Ads keep getting worse
by wjcra09uqn98qnquthuq eo4t on 2020/09/10 13:56
While I really like the puzzles, the constant, multiple ad pop-ups are increasing and increasingly annoying.

Puzzle no longer lets me exit to menu. Once started I cannot close to work later. Deleted app and reloaded. Can only get cloud version with the iPad so when I get it going again it does the same thing. I have used this for quite a while and enjoyed it so it is disappointing. Used to get a menu bar at bottom that allowed some control.
I’m puzzled?
by Suz 66 on 2020/09/10 10:39
I would give the game 5 stars if you would move the Home button away from the edge. I'm right handed so balance the iPad with my left and hit Home by accident all the time.

5 Stars to 1 Star
by blb924 on 2020/09/10 01:14
This has been one of my favorite games but the last update has made this almost impossible to use. The lock icon no longer works and the game/screen moves after every move even with the lock on. I hate that now when the last piece is made the puzzle face reduces with the last piece flashing and the space highlighted. You have taken a terrific game and ruined it. Please remove these updates that just did not work out and give us back the game we loved. This was 5 stars. Now it’s 1 Star.
Run!
by PlainSpotter on 2020/09/10 00:57
Find something else to do. As time goes on, and as this program changes hands, the advertising gets more and more disruptive. And don't ever change your equipment. Changing equipment causes you to lose puzzles you own, points you've earned, and any hope of tech support. They answer your emails, but the process to get your puzzles back is complicated and convoluted. You can have your puzzles back if you have kept meticulous records of what you had, because the developer doesn't. I can't imagine anybody going through the process they throw up as a roadblock to getting what you already own. This is an irresponsible company, with no regard whatever for their customers. Don't buy it. Don't use it. Don't recommend it. This sort of company needs to be run off the Apple App Store.
My review
by D-Tejano on 2020/09/09 23:33
I believe the puzzle games are excellent. I am no longer able to work. I am a nurse and loved helping people. However, because my husband has cancer I cannot risk working with individuals who are ill. This game helps me a lot and rids me of my boredom. Thank you for supplying such great games. They area God sent. Thank-you, Diana
When it comes to puzzles, there’s Nothing like it

No other puzzle app come anywhere close to this one. It has it all. Hard to improve.
Love using my own photos
by Artlady 1 on 2020/09/09 19:58
I post my completed puzzels on FB and create quite a bit of interest. The app is easy to use, visually appealing and relaxing. Jigsaw Puzzle has my highest rating! Please bring back the ability to post the completed puzzle on Facebook with your logo. Just posting the photo I used is not good enough. I am asked if that is the puzzle or not. I love promoting you!
Free coins
by La Deb on 2020/09/09 17:52
When I did my first puzzle today I got a message that said if I buy any puzzle pack I would get some free coins. I purchased a puzzle pack but b4 I touched claim prize it disappeared and I didn’t get my free coins. I dont plan on purchasing anymore puzzle packs until I get my free coins. I feel like I have been ripped off. 2nd request It’s really too bad you can’t take the time to satisfy a customer by replying to their issue. I won’t delete the game bcuz I have too much invested in puzzles but I will not buy anymore puzzle packs and get involved in your special games. “Thanks so much for being swell in your replies to customer reviews”.
Love the puzzle but think the chest game is rigged.
by Lisalovestravel on 2020/09/09 16:23
I am obsessed with doing puzzles on the app. They are so relaxing. And I pay the monthly fee to avoid commercials. When I finish a puzzle, I typically play a few rounds of “pick a chest” to win coins for free puzzles. The game requires watching a video. I have to believe the game is set up so you seldom/never win the largest amount of coins. You have a one in three chance. I have never been so unlucky in a game.
I’m Addicted
by mareashworth on 2020/09/09 16:13
I have been working your puzzles for quite a while but since the pandemic, I have become addicted. It’s very relaxing.I like to work on two or three at a time. I love landscapes, travel cities and countrysides, and early American life.
I love this app but
by rmmpuzzles on 2020/09/09 14:46
I have been using this app for a number of years and had no complaints up to the last update. I do not have internet at home and I was not able to open any puzzles in my new puzzle pack. The message said I could not download unless I was a VIP member. I was very disappointed as I like to play several puzzles every night.
The 3 issues I have
by gghhrrttsswweequit on 2020/09/09 01:59
This is a decent game but I have three areas of improvement for the developers to address. 1. When you first start the game you are confronted with its main screen that contains no less than 18 different icons which you can click on. Takes a while to become comfortable navigating this very busy main screen. 2. When you move a puzzle piece and place it where it goes, it doesn't always fall into its spot. You are forced to move it again. This annoys me. I wish there was an option to turn this off. 3. You earn coins at a very slow rate. You can unlock puzzle packs for thousands of coins, but be prepared for it to not be anytime soon. You literally only earn two or three queens per puzzle. I am nowhere near close to purchasing a puzzle pack. Having said that, my actual concern regarding the acquisition of coins is this; there are achievements, which I like. Generally, when playing any games that have objectives for you to complete, you receive a reward. There is no indication that you are receiving coins after an achievement is reached. No indication that you are receiving any reward whatsoever. So I am finishing puzzles left and right, yet as far as I can tell I have not received a single thing for doing so. You are able to watch an ad after finishing each puzzle in order to amass coins in this fashion. But I believe that is it. So I guess to the developers I would say please add some sort of reward banner indicating what you have earned.
Puzzle lovers dream
by ChelbiMustang on 2020/03/12 14:14
I love this app because it’s the best way to enjoy puzzles without the mess and expense of tangible ones. Plus, there are never missing pieces! For only a few dollars you get 30 or more puzzles. You can’t do that with “real” puzzles! If you love jigsaw puzzles, this app is for you! I like the fact I can pause the game when I’m not actively working on a puzzle so I can see how much actual time it took to complete. I challenge myself to improve my time because it’s a way to exercise the brain. I have not had the same negative experience as some of the reviews I’ve seen posted over the recent hours/days. Mine doesn’t crash or have too many ads. Someone gave the game 1 star because it’s “not really free” but the APP is free. It’s clearly stated in the App Store, when you read the fine print, that there are “in app purchases” therefore it’s not advertised as “always” free. There is a free daily puzzle. I often start several daily puzzles and leave them to finish later. So I have 2 or 3 in my “in progress” bucket all the time. If you only want truly free puzzles take advantage of the daily ones. Otherwise buy puzzle packs on sale. There are puzzle packs for $0.99, $1.99 and $2.99 that are good ones. Each puzzle pack has around 30 or so which can be done over and over with various levels of difficulty to challenge you. There are ways to enjoy the app without spending more than $3. Get creative. I’ve used several other puzzle apps and I like this one the best.
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.
Improvement
by Iluvshops on 2019/12/30 03:26
I want to update my earlier review because there have been some significant changes (some good/some bad). Most importantly praise is warranted because the puzzle hardly ever crashes anymore -- thank you! Some things I'm not so happy about are the following: (1) Trays are useless and take up valuable board space; (2) there are 2 puzzle packs that I do not want (taking up valuable data space) that have been placed in my puzzles. I cannot delete them. I will never use them and I would like to remove them. Please tell me how. (3) I want to do puzzles at my pace when I have the time. I don't want the annoying messages that tell me how many puzzles I have completed or that I need to complete more, etc. Just please allow me to utilize the game the way I want to. Maybe this is as a result of the upgrade to get rid of ads, not sure. Had I known I would be assaulted with all these messages after every puzzle completion, I would never have upgraded. The game should have a feature to turn off all annoying messages. Thank you for listening! love this puzzle app when it works. The problem is that it constantly crashes and freezes, and sometimes the screen just goes black (but ad at bottom still plays lol). I have to close the app and wait a bit then try reopening so it will reload (hopefully). Why can't these bugs be fixed? I'm not the only one complaining about them. I can't delete and reinstall because I will loose all purchased puzzle packs!
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!
New update
by Juli3bugg on 2020/04/12 04:51
I’m not crazy about the constant pop up between every action to watch an ad for the chance to win more points. 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. 😁
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.
Update last week was ill conceived. Now fixed.
by Trolley Molly on 2020/02/13 14:19
Updated review: 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 5 stars. It’s back to its old self with some new, optional features! 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...
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!!!
Made the trays optional—now do the “objectives”!
by OnthBeach54 on 2020/02/01 15:33
I am totally rewriting my last 1-star reviews to reflect the fact that at last the developers have responded to the flood of complaints regarding those annoying trays, and did the logical thing of making them totally optional on the puzzle board. Thank you! I have not played at all for the last months and have not had a chance to evaluate some of the other complaints Mentioned in other folks’ reviews, so will hold off on giving more than a 3-star review. In particular, the last few times I opened the puzzle and in quickly checking out the tray update, I did notice the also-annoying “objectives” that pop up unasked for, and agree that they, too should be optional. The objective of doing puzzles is pretty clear—to enjoy the process of doing the puzzle and satisfaction of completing it. Let us set our own objectives and quit treating like little children who have come (in our modern society) to expect a gold star every time they do the least little thing correctly (and hence never learn to be self motivated to accomplish for their own sense of accomplishment). Many many reviewers say they don’t like the objectives so I hope the developers listen some more. I mean, getting a pop-up because I expanded or contracted the size of the puzzle board—come on, already!! How ridiculous is that? I have been doing that for years. Listen up, puzzle developers!
Great app, but a billion pop ups
by ntaga on 2020/08/28 21:33
I bought this app many years ago and have recommended it to numerous friends. Pay the $4.99 (I understand its more now) to get rid of ads and have the option to use your own photos, I advised. There have been a few problems over the years, but customer service is very helpful and responsive and most of my issues have been fixed through updates after I contacted them. That said, I paid to get rid of ads. I don’t get them from outside companies, but am constantly being bombarded with puzzle pitches or requests to watch a video to earn points every time I finish a puzzle. Here are my suggestions: For those of us who paid for no ads, the puzzle lists and featured puzzles on the opening page are fine. Don’t push puzzles otherwise. Put a small link on the opening page for those who want to earn puzzle credits. Don’t make me have to close a screen to avoid watching. I see lots of complaints about puzzle trays, but I like them, especially since you made them unobtrusive and I can turn them on or off in the options. They are useful when the puzzle has few defined color blocks and you have to work strictly by piece shape. Overall, this app has saved my sanity throughout this stressful few months. I’m working lots of puzzles with peaceful scenes and happy topics.
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!
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!
Love it,but...
by Singagain on 2020/04/13 00:52
Love it...but...the main complaint I have is that when the pieces are first scattered they are flung so hard that some of them get lost on the sidelines. I would prefer that they were all just dumped in the middle so I could sort the pieces myself, into the piles I choose as I would have to do anyway. As it is, I cannot move the tray far enough (up, down, or to either side) to get some of the pieces and have to use the light bulb as many as a dozen times to find and then drag a lost piece out of hiding. I don’t recall having to do this process before: when I was playing last year. Otherwise, I absolutely love the beautiful puzzles I have purchased and was so happy to find this website again after my IPad went down last year. In addition, I was overjoyed to find that I still had the puzzles I had purchased before, some of which I dearly loved and thought were gone. With a touch of the button they were restored to me. I was happily surprised and moved that they were archived so that if I do have trouble with this IPad and have to buy another, the puzzles will still go with me to another unit. Lastly, the puzzle graphics on this website are better than another one I was going to try (but I didn’t like scrolling the pieces to find what I was looking for so I nixed that right away.
Well-maintained app with lots of puzzle choices
by Lusaney on 2020/07/15 11:25
I’ve been very pleased with the people who created and maintain this app. There is constant improvement in the app, and I have found them to be responsive to problems. There are many different types of puzzles available, any of which you can purchase, but some of which you can purchase with “coins” you accumulate by solving each puzzle. The higher the piece count of the puzzle you solve (you can decide this for each puzzle you work on), the more coins you get for solving it. There are different work spaces available, and trays on which to store puzzle pieces, if you want to use them. You get to choose your background and other settings. There are always ads offering new puzzles, though the ads can easily be dismissed. There are often sales on puzzle packs. I went overboard in buying from sales when I first started playing, so be careful not to buy more than you than you can actually solve in a reasonable amount of time. The puzzles do take up space on your drive, and I got to the point where I needed to clean them out to free up space. But if you delete puzzle packs you’ve purchased, don’t worry. You can restore them if you want any back.
GREAT Puzzles! GREAT Support!

I look forward to these puzzles every day! Having both a free puzzle everyday and reasonably priced puzzles to purchase has made this my favorite web app! I used to purchase puzzles and take over a table in my house. No more, the puzzles go with me. I look forward to waiting at appointments so I can work the puzzles. I especially like that you can make the puzzle as difficult or easy as you want. You can increase/decrease the number of pieces and whether you want the pieces to be scattered or in their actual direction. Bottom line, you can make the puzzles personalized to your skill level. Some days, I make it difficult and some days easier. The best thing is that the developers support for the puzzles is OUTSTANDING/EXCELLENT. Recently, I had an issue and the response was extremely respectful and personalized. I feel as though the developers care about the user and want them to have a great experience. Yes, there were some issues several months ago, but these issues have been recognized and fixed. In addition, the puzzles are continuously improved based on user feedback. When a change is made you can use it or turn it off, you are not forced to change.
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.
Fun, but there are some problems.

This is an update to my earlier review. I lowered my rating from 5 stars to 3 stars. The reason mostly has to do with the free credits. When I first discovered that I could earn credits and then use them to buy puzzles, I was excited! Being retired, I have lots of time to study the puzzle packs and decide which ones I want. I keep a running list on my iPad. If I remember correctly, at first all puzzle packs could be purchased with credits. Now, there are very few, and NONE of the newer packs can be bought with credits. This seems unfair to the players. And, it is just getting worse! Every week it seems as though fewer puzzles are available for purchase using credits. I feel bad for the people who bought credits. It's like they wasted their money, and there is no way to get a refund. The changes come with every update. I have had this app a very long time. Over the years, I have bought a number of puzzle packs. I won't be buying any more. I will just work the puzzles I have. I just recently discovered how much fun it is to work jigsaw puzzles on my iPad. This app is especially nice. It has lovely puzzles and the option to have different numbers of pieces. I can work one that is really easy or apply myself and work one that is more difficult. I highly recommend it!
Great App, even “Free”
by Kittykate249 on 2020/06/20 00:04
I VERY rarely use real money on in-app purchases or gaming apps. This puzzle app is no exception- I have not spent a cent. However, by starting the free daily puzzles everyday, whether I finish them then or not, and by keeping an eye on rotating free puzzles in the store, I have found myself with an extreme surplus of content. Yes, on occasion you watch an ad. But the content creators have to have a way to make money. So for those of us who don’t want to shell out our physical cash, why not pay with 30 seconds of time? It’s not like you have to actually watch the ad- you can set your phone down and get a glass of water if you’re that determined. There are definitely puzzles I like more than others, but a hot tip- you can start the daily puzzle as many times as you want in different sizes. So if you really like one, start it a few times, come back in the future, and enjoy varying challenges over a few months! Overall, I love this app, love the puzzles, and appreciate that the creators make it possible to TRULY play it for free, without locking you out after a certain amount of time or puzzles completed. I look forward to continuing to watch ads in order to support your development.
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.... :(
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.
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.
Good, almost great, but...
by BuckMT on 2020/02/18 04:09
Excellent concept - take various graphics (pictures, paintings, drawings, etc.), write a program to parse it into puzzle pieces, and voila! hours of relaxing entertainment. Having said that... The trays are unnecessary and annoying. We don’t want the pesky objectives. Quit trying to improve on something elegant, simple and satisfying. Worst of all, apparently one of the financial wonks found that we were doing too many puzzles, accumulating too many credits, and getting too many free puzzle packs with those credits (especially when they’re on sale!) so now the great “sales” offered require only cash. Again and again and again. They couldn’t just leave it at the challenge of finishing a Gazillion puzzles and getting those paltry 34 credits a pop, then the joy! of shopping for a puzzle pack, on sale, and allowing the use of those credits. Oh sure, every once in a while a puzzle pack, not on sale, and nothing but your one-eyed great aunt would like, will pop up that can be acquired with credits (lots and lots of credits). Come on mw folks - don’t be so cynical, keep the great sales but let us use credits. We’ll keep coming back for more, and every once in a while we’ll buy a pack we can’t live without and use CASH!
Boring!
by Tom472 on 2020/07/20 00:28
I never write reviews, but have become increasing frustrated with the changes to this app. With each update more and more features which made this a very fun app have been removed. Getting to be a very boring, ho hum app! This had been my most favorite game app that is available! I even paid the extra not to have the ads that interrupt my playing. I have completed over 1000 puzzles. I still like the variety of puzzles and the free one each day, which I play for that day and leave until the next free one. It used to be that if you collected enough coins you could use them to get new puzzle pack, but they have eliminated that feature for the most part. Now you must pay cash for almost all addition puzzle. Occasionally there are puzzles that you can us the coins to get, but they are mostly very unappealing puzzles that no one would buy with money. They have also lowered the number of coins for completed puzzles and no longer tell you how many you can earn for the different number of puzzle pieces you chose, so much of the challenge has been removed and not as much fun to play. The number of objectives not longer very challenging. Not sure why anyone would watch any ads to get coins as the coins are useless! So disappointing to see how this app has been changed from it’s original, and not for the better!
Just gets worse
by Enthous on 2020/05/16 12:34
I’ve been so disappointed in the updates for this. The latest updates each add more stuff to the experience that is just plain distracting. First the ads for puzzle packs and splash screens were introduced, adding multiple tap requirements just to get to my puzzle. Then the trays got added that steal precious screen real estate and don’t work well. I thought I’d give them a try but every time I try to scroll through the pieces the tray closes. Apparently if you move more than a pixel in the opposite direction of your swipe it closes the tray. The newest one now has objectives that I’m not interested in and introduce more taps in the game process. All of this may be entertaining to some people but I for one would like to turn all this distraction off in the settings: the splash screen, the trays and the objectives. I recognize the ads to sell pictures will probably not go away but they’re so annoying. They don’t just appear when the app is opened but every time you got to the home screen. I’ve been collecting their “rewards” coins to purchase a puzzle collection but my coins don’t work on the one I want. What the? They also sell these coins. Can you imagine paying for coins and not being able to use them to buy the puzzles you want? This app is getting close to permanent removal from my device.
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.
update new review
by Whimpy55 on 2019/11/27 21:35
This is one of the easiest puzzles to do. Room to arrange each puzzle piece, and so simple to figure out by clicking onto just the pieces to make the frame then click on the green arrow and bring up the rest of the pieces. Love it. Have been using this app for years now and still like it. Don’t know what’s happened to this game, but it’s just not the same. The frame moves all over the place, the colored background doesn’t fit the full page, it’s just not as good as it was before. I use to do a couple of puzzles a day, now days will go by before I’m even interested. Why they felt they had to mess with something that wasn’t broke is beyond me. Changes were not for the better!! Over time, I keep seeing bug fixes have been made, and updates. My question is what’s with the new “trays” in the upper left corner and why doesn’t the background color fill the entire page? I have no use for the trays, whatever they are so why add them? It takes up room for puzzle pieces. They gave a brief explanation on how to use the trays but makes no sense to me. I have no use for them. The only thing I can say that needs to be improved is having the colored background fill the entire page.
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... 😇
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.
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.
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.
Earning Coins
by lilwaz on 2020/08/11 13:48
For years this was a 5 star game!!!!! Playing this game used to be fun in that you could challenge yourself to earn enough coins doing puzzles so you could buy different puzzle packs without having to spend real money. But sadly it has become another money hungry game. Yes, they have given you more chances to win coins by watching different ads, but in doing so, they took away being able to buy puzzles with the coins and you can only get puzzle packs by spending real money. Yes there are still a few packs that you can get with coins but they are few and far between. And none are very interesting. I had a small notebook with several packs written down that I was trying to get enough coins to purchase. And now there is not even one that I can get without spending money!!!! They took them all away!!!! I would rather them take away the chances to win coins and go back to the original way so that you can get the puzzle packs that are worth doing. I have been playing this game for years, and YES, I did spend real money sometimes so I could get a puzzle pack that I really wanted without having to wait and get enough coins to do the puzzles. But now I’m thinking of deleting. What’s the point if I can’t earn coins to get the good packs? So sad to see a great game become a money hungry game like so many other games out there!!!! Not fun any more!!!!
Recommended to others many times
by Weaveresq on 2020/04/10 11:58
Generally this is my go to app for downtime. I play it on my IPAD Pro so that the screen is not too small. It was not enjoyable, for me on a smaller screen as I need reading glasses to play. I like that there are so many different genres of puzzles. Something for everyone and for every mood, season and holiday. I have never had the crash issues that others seem to have. So it could be service provider or speed. However, I do agree the trays are an annoyance and just in the way taking up valuable space on a small screen. I love that one can change the background color to make puzzle pieces more easily seen depending on colors. And that the backgrounds can be more soothing on the eyes in contrast to the puzzle pieces. I am not a fan of the new “Clue” series or others like it. However, I’m sure many are and I can just opt out quickly. I especially like that one can earn credits to buy new puzzle packs without having to spend money. I have recommended this to several other who have become as addicted as I. Thank you for your dedication to continuing to perfect the experience.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
Jigsaw puzzle updates are awesome
by Pearle Newton on 2020/02/13 23:27
I love this puzzle app! I will admit I am hard on ratings. This comes as close to a 5 star as I have ever seen in a game. The app owners are right on top of any problems that come up, which is a huge plus! Daily free puzzles, many different puzzle packs suited for anyone and app techs that are on top of any problem...oh and you don’t have to spend money for the puzzle packs you want because you collect coins for every puzzle you finish. You can pay for the puzzle packs if you can’t wait or use your coins for them. I collect coins from finished puzzles and have never had to pay $. The only reason I didn’t give it a 5 star rating is that I use my phone to play the game, and I have played this for years, so I have changed phones twice and LOST all my puzzles and progress that I have finished and work I had done. I had almost finished a puzzle pack only to have to do it all over again...sigh. That is a lot of work and time down the drain!!! So I am still upset about that. They need a way to back up your work like they back up your purchases. That would get them 5 stars from me.
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.
Longtime user - disappointed with recent money grab
by Foxy_Girl5 on 2020/02/14 01:46
I have been using this app daily for quite some time now and I love many things about it. I purchased the “no ad” version and have purchased many puzzle packs both with money and with earned credits. Recently, a couple significant differences cannot be ignored and are incredibly disappointing. The first is that only a handful of puzzles can be purchased with credits. Previously a user could purchase almost any puzzle pack with credits. I believe this is unfair, especially for those users who purchased credits! I have also noticed the cash prices of almost all the puzzles have gone up. The second is I purchased the “no ad” version of the app. However, for around a week, I was bugged with a pop up trying to entice me to download a word game in exchange for a free puzzle. Call me old school, but it looked like an ad to me! I love this app and want so much to give it the five stars it deserves but can’t do so until the money grab tactics cease. At the very least, reinstate the option to purchase puzzles with credits. I can’t be the only person who sees through these machinations. Let’s have some respect for the customer!!!!
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!
Quirky Upgrades?
by Kikistang on 2019/12/10 15:17
I have been using this jigsaw puzzle app for a few years now. At first, I only did the free ones but I LOVED it so much, I eventually paid for the app and bought some of the many puzzle packs. (You can even make your own puzzle out of your photos.) In the past month or so, it seems the developers thought it a good idea to make some changes... or “upgrades”. I’m sure the intention was to attract more people to pay for the app. I, however, think they’ve made a terrible mistake. Since their changes have taken effect, the puzzles lag, meaning that it takes too long for the computer to recognize that, yes, I put the correct piece in place. In addition the developers have added goals and a multiple tray feature. The goals can just be ignored and not have it ruin your puzzling experience, but the multiple trays cannot be hidden. I wish I could turn them off completely in settings or somewhere. I don’t need more than one play area, and my pinky accidentally taps it from time to time, slowing me down and causing some real frustration! In short, the “upgrades” are more like downgrades, and I hope the developers see this and work to actually improve the lag time and other issues.
Loving the game
by iDoneit on 2019/12/07 18:50
I really do love this game but I can’t give it five stars. We haven’t gotten there yet. This game has been wonderful. It has kept me busy when my patience would not have held out. Still, I have some issues with it. I read in some reviews that there is a way to see the final picture while we are working on it but I can’t figure out how to do that (unless you are clicking out to the main board to see the pic- that wouldn’t get 5 stars either- too many steps and too small) nor have I seen instructions available. I love that you added tiers because I do like to group my pieces but why can’t you pull a tier down and work within there to put the pieces together? I thought I was getting extra work space, which it isn’t. The one and only time I “emptied” a tier it threw all the pieces all over the ‘tabletop’ and I had to gather them up again- not useful. Lastly, I would like to be able to zoom in on a finished puzzle. All I have found is that it fills up the screen and then goes away. - I haven’t checked out the archive... This game does a lot right. I am thankful for having it available.
Even better since recent update
by Laneybelle on 2020/03/21 04:15
This has long been one of my favorite apps for relaxing and winding down at the end of the day – the pictures and subjects of puzzles are diverse, the controls are easy to use, the variety of difficulties are easy to change (when you’re just too tired to really think and only want to zone out watching a pretty picture grow under you hands, versus those days when you really need an engrossing challenge to take your mind off everything else). Two thumbs up, five stars, and yay! Is my rating. Just wish there were some way to identify the puzzle pack for the pictures that flood the screen when the app first open. Grrrr. Got notice of “developer response,” was hopeful that meant I could find that puzzle pack to purchase... but cannot find the response! One more update - was able to find response (I was looking in wrong place) and now have the puzzle pack I wanted. I really appreciate how Oromo and PERSISTENT the developers were in helping me. Great app from great company with great customer setvices!
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.
Loved this game but glitches are making it impossible to solve the puzzles
by rissa-ma on 2020/03/14 15:34
I have loved his app for a few years now and the minor issues have been tolerable because the ability to complete the puzzle itself hasn’t been affected, until now. I have it 3 stars because of the fact that I’ve enjoyed this game for so long (on various devices) but if I hadn’t had past experience with it I would give it 1 star because the recent updates have only caused more glitches to the point where I have to completely close out the app and wait a few minutes before being able to get back on. My issue now is that during the “Clue” special I’ve almost completed it and am 1 away from solving the whole thing but I updated the app last night and attempted to go on and solve the puzzle only for the game to give me two of the same shape, corner pieces, but both are completely different picture wise, and when trying to do the rest of the edge pieces most of them don’t match up at all making it literally impossible to complete. I’m very frustrated by this and have even started looking for other jigsaw puzzle apps to replace this one.

I love this app. It’s easy for my almost 3 year old. I’ve increased the difficulty for my 6 yr old and I find it most relaxing to do ne every day. Sometimes I’ll do 2. I also love the variety of subjects. Thanks for an easy to manage app.
Too many advertisements
by tortmom on 2020/09/21 03:23
This app used to be a good one, but now there are too many advertisements. If you try to do anything; change puzzles, finish one, etc., it keeps throwing up advertisement after advertisement. Drives me crazy. It’s bad enough you have to pay for puzzles, but to have to click through ads is just irritating.
Relaxing game
by cfrankieh on 2020/09/21 03:00
Enjoy the puzzles relaxing beautiful sceneries animals and many more interesting puzzles do recommend.
Too many ads
by miswit on 2020/09/20 22:36
I’ve been playing this game for years, and spending money in app as well. But I’ve had it. There are too many ads intruding on playing what used to be an ad-free game. I’m done.
Awesome game

I love this game because I love puzzles. A lot so this game is so much fun. I would recmend it . I hope YOU get this game😍😍😍🥰🥰🥰
Review Jigsaw Puzzles
by BMooreandTali on 2020/09/20 15:55
I really love this app and I find doing a puzzle is an excellent way to wind down. Having said that, how can I use all of the credits I have earned to purchase more puzzles?
Update Removed Purchasing Options
by MandyD37 on 2020/09/20 07:40
I’ve been playing this app for a while and enjoying it, but a recent update removed the ability to use in-game earned coins to purchase most puzzle packs. Now there are only a few that have that option instead of being able to use them on any pack. This is extremely disappointing and really disincentivizes earning any coins. Why bother? I have a lot saved up I was hoping to use but now I can only use them on a handful of puzzle packs.
Robbed by ads.
by Papa_Ray on 2020/09/20 03:32
I hate all the constant ads.
Too many commercials
by Nursehup on 2020/09/20 01:56
I love the game and the great puzzles but hate having to listen to those 30 second commercials. We should not be subject to them!,,
Purchase Puzzles with points
by GoodTreats on 2020/09/20 00:43
I really love playing your puzzles and winning points is a fun challenge for me. My problem is you have reduce the amount of puzzle packages that can be purchased with points. THERE ARE VERY FEW PUZZLE PACKAGES TO PURCHASE WITH POINTS...GIVE US MORE!
Updates have made the game worse!
by akwa8894 on 2020/09/19 18:24
Since the last update, the game has a ton more ads. You have to click out of 2 or 3 before selecting a puzzle, then 2-3 more before you can play. In addition, when you are down to one last puzzle piece, the size of the puzzle and piece shrinks. These are not good changes!

Puzzles I paid for gone!
by Olliesgigi on 2020/09/19 02:19
I had to get a new iPad because the battery died on the one I had. When I redownloaded the Puzzle App the latest puzzle packs I had purchased were not in the restore puzzles list nor were they in My Puzzles. Pretty upset that I was cheated out of all the money I spent on puzzle packs!!
Was my favorite
by Sherika13 on 2020/09/18 21:01
I am a fan- have been playing for several years. Last night i logged off, saving my current puzzle. Logging on this morning all my saved daily puzzles were gone as was the progress i had made in all my puzzle packs. Including the Tour free starter pack! What happened?! Only one complaint other than the confusion above- I have over 7,000 coins and nothing to buy that I dont already have- more coin- based purchases, please
Trouble!
by JLR62 on 2020/09/18 20:26
Please add more puzzles to use points! There are hardly any!
Disappointed in developer response
by Katlarue on 2020/09/18 17:09
I love doing these puzzles. Do multiple puzzles everyday. However, when I rated 4 stars and said I was unhappy that lately There are very few puzzles that can be purchased with credit. The developer responded that they never used credit. I took a screenshot of a message that came up on the game on , 9/17/2020. It says “Enough Credits for a pack. Tap to go to The Store.” Apparently the response or the responder was uninformed. My disappointment is the same, very few puzzles are available to buy with my 4,000+ credits, earned partially by watching ads.
Good pass time but...
by Bon Vie on 2020/09/18 12:45
Why, why, why did you add that annoying ‘last piece’ micro puzzle piece placement? It adds nothing positive to completing the puzzle. Is there an option to turning this unwanted feature off? I used the option to disable the trays, thanks for that bit of info. I’ve enjoyed this game, which features lots of options, for a few years now. The recent changes baffle me. Why isn’t the tray an option? It simply takes up space and isn’t necessary for working the puzzles. And, I chose a puzzle site because I like puzzles. If I wanted to play games, I’d go to a game site.
Bug or feature?
by GaiaLady on 2020/09/18 03:56
Edited: Recently, when I get to the last piece, the screen jumps to un-zoomed mode and it highlights the last piece. Why? That’s what “scatter” is for. The jumping screen is hard on the eyes, and I can find the last piece for myself. I call this a bug. Please let me play my own game. I don’t need help, especially when it literally hurts. Addendum: PLEASE stop moving the screen around. The turning of the whole screen as the app comes up is hard on the eyes, and can make some people dizzy. I have reduced my rating to 3 stars. If you don’t reverse this trend I will stop playing this game. 2nd addendum: PLEASE stop making the screen jump at the end of my puzzle! It only detracts from the game. It hurts my eyes. It’s completely unnecessary. It’s a bug. Fix it.
Help
by Usarmy21 on 2020/09/18 00:57
I really love this app but now my pieces are at the bottom instead of on the side. I hate this. How do I change it back
Puzzles good incessant ads an annoyance
by sjgtucson on 2020/09/17 22:27
The constant pushing of puzzles between screens, sometimes two in a row, is pathetic. If you don’t have a puzzle app yet, consider this when shopping
Love your app
by sunnyGMama on 2020/09/17 21:33
The best jigsaw puzzle app ! I have had this app since 2016. The past few months I have had the app close on me, and sometimes a black screen will appear after watching an ad. Even rebooting my iPad doesn’t always help. Any ideas what may be happening. Hope this can be solved. I have enjoyed all the puzzles and the extra contest to win puzzles and points. Thanks for making this a great app!
So much fun!!

Jigsaw puzzle by Mobility Ware
by granny's usable on 2020/09/17 18:27
You are coming close to getting me to ditch Magic Puzzles. They are having so many technical issues with their ads and so many frills and extras which are not necessary. One problem I have with you is, why can’t we use our earned coins to buy sets of puzzles. It would give me incentive to build more and use more pieces. The screen always seems crowded. I love all your games and think you could make this site much better What is the point in letting us earn coins if we can’t use them to get puzzle packs? I don’t understand.
Menu bar issues
by Kathielo on 2020/09/17 10:20
I am totally addicted Howto puzzles. Love the app and most things about it. can you please make it so the menu bar can be moved to another position, I keep hitting it accidentally and it changes the background color. I would love to be able to lock my background color. I find most of the bright colors are difficult to look at. It would be great if once you hide the menu bar it stays hidden until you call it up again yourself. Or at least be able to put it in another spot on the screen so it is out of the way of your hands.It is in a terrible place for right handed people. Thanks. Kathieo Ok...8 months later and no action on my previous suggestion. Can't give it 5 stars until menu issue is corrected. Thanks. Today i sent a custom puzzle or my granddaughter. she got a link but that my took her to the app and she couldn’t see the puZzle I sent. How do i you see custom puzzles sent by someone else?

Love APP, Not Happy that I can’t use coins anymore!
by ITS SCARY DELETED! on 2020/09/16 17:19
I love this app, however, previously, I could use my coins to buy new puzzle packs and now there are almost no packs that can be purchased with coins! AND now ads pop up even when I am doing a puzzle that I purchased with my Apple ID account. It’s very frustrating! Also, it would be nice to be able to save puzzle packs to favorites so I can go back and find the ones I have been saving my coins for when I am ready to buy a new one.
Awesome

Decent puzzles, excessive advertising
by Jane Ellen+ on 2020/09/16 01:44
The puzzles are enjoyable, but if one doesn’t make the in-app purchase the amount of advertising has become excessive- multiple ads before and after. I used to enjoy this app, but I’m done.
Interrupt
by golfer dick on 2020/09/16 00:44
When I'm working on a puzzle, the program stops and goes back to the main menu at least three times which means I have to start all over again. It's a huge waste of time
Re: Jigsaw
by PianoladyJS on 2020/09/15 15:23
This is such a well thought out app. I enjoy always having interesting new pictures. Thank you for providing one of my all time favorite apps!
LOVE THIS APP!
by Kim Greer on 2020/09/15 12:49
I love puzzle! It’s so enjoyable to me! Especially these last couple months that’s I’ve been confined to the house because of a major surgery I just went through! I do wish there were more FREE puzzles since I can’t afford another bill cuz of my medical bills etc! And, it would be awesome if there was a way to make the free puzzles easier to find for those of us who enjoy the puzzles & can’t afford to spend any more money! Just a suggestion! Keep up the great work & thank you for making an app that’s really enjoying plus it makes you THINK! And in my old age I need to think & I need enjoyment!!
Quarantine lifesaver!
by Hoosier mom on 2020/09/15 11:27
Being isolated can be a nightmare without something to keep my mind occupied. This app is exactly what I needed to simultaneously stimulate my intellect and calm my anxiety. It’s also perfect for quiet evenings before bed or tucked in a dimly lit room beside a cheerful fire. The puzzle choices are incredible! There are MANY free puzzles and free daily challenges that earn enough credits for adding to my collection in addition to the huge variety of puzzle artists for any taste or age to enjoy. I appreciate the regular updates and maintenance that keep the app compatible with my IOS. You people rock! I plan to seek out other games and apps developed by your company in the future. Thank you for such a wonderful and delightful app.
Too many pop up windows
by Keeker83 on 2020/09/15 08:51
Annoying pop up windows make this app less relaxing than it used to be.
Hate the update
by cjscrabbler on 2020/09/15 06:53
With as many puzzle packages that I have purchased, I shouldn’t have to click past ads every time I play. Open the app - puzzle ads. Finish a puzzle - puzzle ads. It’s beyond ridiculous. I love the puzzles, but hate the ads. GET RID OF THE ADS! THIS APP JUST FROZE ON ME AND I HAD TO DELETE AND REINSTALL IT. THIS RESULTED IN MY LOSING ALL MY COINS (which seem to be worthless now anyway) AND ALL THE PROGRESS IN MY PUZZLE PACKS. WITH THE MONEY I’VE SPENT ON THIS APP, I EXPECT BETTER. The 1 star stands because of the ridiculous ads and pop ups at EVERY move!
Wasted Money
by Freshface1 on 2020/09/15 01:56
Have enjoyed this game for a while and bought many puzzle packs. Now game will not open and cannot play anymore. Very disappointing! No help from developers.
Best Jigsaw Puzzle
by WPlatin on 2020/09/15 01:44
I have tried many jigsaw puzzle apps over the years and this one is the best by far. Very enjoyable and offers a great variety of puzzles and levels.
Worse with time
by puzzeled one on 2020/09/14 22:00
Used to be my favorite app worth 5 star rating plus some. With each update it has declined. More and more pop ups. You used to be able to purchase nice puzzle packs with coins you earn. Now they constantly want you to watch adds to get more coins, but offer you only a few uninteresting puzzles packs to redeem with them. I still enjoy putting the puzzles together regardless.
Excellent

Redeeming puzzle point
by Sally Anne 10 on 2020/09/14 02:08
I’m told I can buy new packs with my free points but when I hit the button there are no packs to claim, just the pay-for packs. I hit one by mistake and I was charged for the puzzle pack and I still have my free points. Not user friendly. I would like someone to contact me regarding this. Thank you.
STOP the splash screens - I PAID for this app.
by Michele K nyc on 2020/09/13 23:25
I don’t want to have to X out three splash screens to do a puzzle... so annoying that I barely even do puzzles on this app anymore. ALSO THAT FLICKERING LAST PUZZLE PIECE 😡 who thought of that awful feature? This app used to be fun which is why I BOUGHT IT. Waste of money and ads left and right... that’s supposed to be in the FREE VERSION.
Having fun while using my noodle!!!
by Jacobs grandma on 2020/09/13 21:01

Great app, but too many ads even WITH paid version
by Madeocar on 2020/09/13 17:33
I really like this app, so much so that I bought the premium upgrade which allows you to turn any photo into a puzzle. That mean literally limitless puzzle possibilities! BUT I’m still subject to TONS of ads in between puzzles despite the fact that I PAID for this app. May as well have just kept the free version. They do a good job of releasing free puzzles fairly often and offering discounts on paid puzzle packs, so just save yourself the money and use the free version. Being subject to ads after paying for an app is BS. If it weren’t for that, I’d give 5 stars.
My favorite puzzle app
by mom2jaar on 2020/09/13 15:21
I enjoy the variety of puzzles available. The free daily puzzles are great!
CAN YOU KNOCK IT OFF WITH THE ADS???
by prismnism on 2020/09/13 15:02
I paid for the ad free version of this app. It’s ANNOYING to log in to be greeted by the constant bombarding of play this, play that. NO!! LET ME PLAY IN PEACE!!!
Complaint

You need to have more puzzles available to get with the money we get from working the puzzles. There are so few to download.
Disappointed
by gg2733g on 2020/09/13 04:16
Recently you started pointing out the last piece. I hate it and am ready to find a better puzzle app. I feel like I am playing with a cheat who takes one piece until the puzzle is done and then tries to show off. I don’t do puzzles with them either. At least allow me to turn it off!!!!!!!
BEST JIGSAW PUZZLE EVER!
by Linda at homr on 2020/09/12 21:59
I have tried several different jigsaw puzzles and they can’t compare to this one! So many beautiful puzzles to choose from! I especially like that the pieces aren’t in a tray; I can have all of them around the playing board so I can see them all at once instead of having to pull them one at a time from the tray. I work at least one puzzle every day.
Used to be great until the ads got out of control
by moorempw on 2020/09/12 15:34
Loved this game. Bought many, many puzzles and played daily. Now I can’t stand the game— opening the app gives you three glaring ads, one right after the other. Ads are everywhere and block the screen. They made money off my purchases and then decided they need more money— not cool.
Best puzzle app going, but
by asgheller on 2020/09/12 14:57
Took a while to get everything back to my settings. I’m numb to all the stuff that has nothing to do with jigsaw puzzles and getting rid of the ads is not something to pay for. Other than that it’s fine. Only 4 stars because no one is perfect. Just keep your programmers on task. If you want to have them make the app work better, fine. Otherwise stop the nonsense and focus on the puzzles.
Not as good as it used to be
by elf hby riv on 2020/09/12 14:39
The ads will hijack your puzzle for several minutes and often freezes the app for hours. Puzzle choices are not as good either, except the expensive ones.
Continuing bad updates
by filmbuff2 on 2020/09/12 13:49
I have come to hate this app. I love doing the puzzles and the options for play are excellent. Ads and popups and banners ad nauseum have ruined the game for me. It has become stressful rather than relaxing. Don’t need that. I’ve given it 2 stars because once you’re in the puzzle itself it’s great. Before and after it’s trash.
Love the App...getting annoyed with ads and pop ups
by DoveCall on 2020/09/12 13:40
I have had this App for a long time and it is by far my favorite because I love doing puzzles. I love that I can do them anytime anywhere. I love my Saturday morning coffee and puzzle time and my everyone else is in bed puzzle time. However, you are ruining it with pop ups and advertising. I initially paid for this App to avoid this very thing and it was great for a long time. Then you started with the pop up screens when I launch the App and I put up with it because I love the App so much. Only now you keep adding advertising more and more and it’s ruining the whole thing. It looks like my initial payment for the App only got me so far. This used to be so nice and stress free; I miss that.
Clicking to get to puzzle
by Spemmy on 2020/09/12 12:37
I used to love this app but I am very annoyed with having to click through 3, 4, and even 5 ads before I can even get to my puzzle. I paid for this app. Most apps you pay for you can use ad free. I am very close to abandoning this app for another one.
Puzzle Credits
by Gmtwretrd on 2020/09/12 10:54
Update: I appreciate your response but don’t appreciate that you’ve apparently changed the vast majority of puzzles to money payment-only. And with no warning. Also, there certainly is not a large selection of puzzles in the treasure chest. Now we are stuck with virtually worthless credits. What a shame. Have you done away with being able to purchase puzzles using credits? I never see that option anymore.

Too Many Pop Ups!!
by BFT1990 on 2020/09/12 03:19
I love this jigsaw and have been playing it for years. This is my first review. There are too many pop ups for stuff that totally doesn't interest me. Veronica and Archie? Other games that I’m not going to play because I’m trying to play this one? My objectives that I didn’t set and don’t want? I just counted 7 pop ups for one puzzle!!! You are ruining a perfectly good product with unnecessary crap. This app is going downhill fast. Does anybody read these reviews?

Disappointed in new ad banners
by Denver mom of two on 2020/09/12 00:10
I like this app. I thought I had paid for a non ad version. However, recently they are getting pushier and pushier with their pop ups before I can even start. Now there’s a banner ad that doesn’t allow you to click the “X”. No matter where you click to get rid of it, it transfers you to safari followed by the App Store. I may find a new way to spend my time because after one day, I’m already sick of it and done.

Too many pop-up ads and not enough puzzles to buy with coins.
Playability
by Pkoof14 on 2020/09/11 18:52
I play all the time. These cheap developers have removed almost every opportunity to use the coins that you earn playing. Not like it used to be.
New iPad
by Bulldogford on 2020/09/11 16:19
I recently bought a new iPad. When I downloaded Jigsaw Puzzle, I had lost all my coins. Worse, when I tried to restore, several of my puzzle packs were not there! I tried restarting both old and new iPads and I tried deleting all current packs from the old one. Nothing helped! It irritates me that coins won’t buy most puzzle packs now. It seems like you have broken faith with your users!
Bothersome ads
by Riki0911 on 2020/09/11 16:02
I can’t understand why I’m seeing ads when playing puzzles I’ve paid for. I understand having to watch ads when I play a free puzzle, but not when playing puzzles I paid for. I love this app and have been play it frequently, but I’ve been straying away from it because of the ads.
Paying for ad free will not work
by use your common sense on 2020/09/11 14:54
Paid for ad free and after an update have more ads. Rip off
!!!???
by xbchrkgmhorhebslf on 2020/09/11 14:39
I have been doing jigsaw puzzle app since 2013 and I have loved it until the last couple years. I hate the pop-up ads every time I go in to do a puzzle or continue a puzzle. I have not been happy with many of the new changes you have made in the last few years, but it doesn’t matter because you cannot turn them off nor do you put things back the way they were. I apologize for being so negative and this is Unfortunately the best puzzle app I have found yet with the exception of the things I have mentioned if I could turn them off it would make it a lot easier to continue to love and less frustrating. I am now even more frustrated as I don’t want to put in a nickname and any name I do put in apparently is taken and I can’t send it without one, talk about being frustrated which I also can’t use because it is taken. Didn’t matter whether I have a name or not you asked for comments I’m trying to give you one and then I can’t send it.
Messed up the game
by Vircig on 2020/09/11 12:03
I have loved this app and playing the various puzzles for close to 2 years. When I first downloaded the app, I paid for the ad free version. I started getting ads about 4 - 6 months ago which was annoying but not as bad as if I didn’t have the ad free version. Then, when they updated the app at the end of August, it now gets stuck when I try to claim coins. There is a VIP / ??? Box at the top of my screen that will not go away and freezes the app. Very disappointing!!!!!!!!!!!
Jigsaw puzzle
by idonwannagiveminam on 2020/09/11 11:39
I am bummed that you no longer allow us to buy puzzle packs with our gold coins. There are a small selection but most are not available anymore that way. Too much advertising breaking in while you are doing stuff. This app has not improved, it has gotten a little worse. It used to be my favorite so I am a little sad.
GREAT puzzles but.....
by LCLCLCx on 2020/09/11 11:31
......too many pop ups, rewards, etc. I paid the fee to remove ads, but still end up clicking and closing 6-7 times each time I start or finish a puzzle. I just want to relax with a puzzle!

by Brugmansia1 on 2020/09/11 05:30
Sooooo many ads for product, to play jigsaw games, earning points that you have to take before you can move on. Really do not like the isolated last piece. Love the jigsaw, not happy with all of the extras. Any way to play a straight game?
Drains battery after latest update
by sandyhon1 on 2020/09/11 04:23
This used to be my favorite app. I timed it the other day, it drained a full battery in 14 minutes. It also takes forever to load. It’s not my battery, I can play other games for hours.
Good puzzle app but too many ads!
by Chris367864435778 on 2020/09/11 04:20
I would rate this five stars if there weren’t ads popping up all the time. Why did I pay for this if I still get so many ads?! Now it’s not just ads for more puzzles but it’s banner ads for other games! Please stop!
Very Fun
by Sub view on 2020/09/11 04:04
These are so much fun. There are a lot more fun than an actual puzzle. We can’t lose the pieces we can magnify them so you can see them better! And the color selections are just the prettiest we really enjoy these.
Everything changed
by 2knit on 2020/09/11 03:47
I loved this app for years. The updates were easy to get used to but the latest one has completely changed everything. I can only work on one puzzle at a time, the bar at the bottom of the screen has disappeared, I can’t go between the home screen and the current puzzle, everything froze before this all started. I hope they go back to the way it was and make it more user friendly. It used to be a great app. Now I can’t use it. ADDENDUM: I got rid of the app and then reinstalled it. I played around with the preferences and don’t know what I did but it doesn’t freeze up and the task bar is back. Not crazy about the flash when the piece moves or the last piece “sparkle” but otherwise I can use it again.
Fun except popups
by time out puzzler on 2020/09/11 01:59
This app has great puzzles, decent prices, and a free one every day. I bought the app that was supposed to stop the ads, but the problem is the own app’s ads! There are sometimes up to five different windows that pop up in front of the puzzle I am trying to work on. And some of the offers, like my progress, are totally annoying. I am not competing with myself. I like to do puzzles to relax at the end of the day. I wish there was an option to turn that off and reduce the ads.
Now it's way too intrusive
by TJPitibull on 2020/09/11 00:52
Ok, supposed to be relaxing, but excessive ads, becoming progressively more intrusive in more and more ways, to the point of becoming useless as an activity all together. All that being done for the "privilege" of completing puzzles I have purchased. No Thank you. If u fix it, let me know.
Too many ads!

While I really like the puzzles, the constant, multiple ad pop-ups are increasing and increasingly annoying.

by wr4387765 on 2020/09/10 13:15
Puzzle no longer lets me exit to menu. Once started I cannot close to work later. Deleted app and reloaded. Can only get cloud version with the iPad so when I get it going again it does the same thing. I have used this for quite a while and enjoyed it so it is disappointing. Used to get a menu bar at bottom that allowed some control.
I’m puzzled?
by Suz 66 on 2020/09/10 10:39
I would give the game 5 stars if you would move the Home button away from the edge. I'm right handed so balance the iPad with my left and hit Home by accident all the time.

5 Stars to 1 Star
by blb924 on 2020/09/10 01:14
This has been one of my favorite games but the last update has made this almost impossible to use. The lock icon no longer works and the game/screen moves after every move even with the lock on. I hate that now when the last piece is made the puzzle face reduces with the last piece flashing and the space highlighted. You have taken a terrific game and ruined it. Please remove these updates that just did not work out and give us back the game we loved. This was 5 stars. Now it’s 1 Star.
Run!
by PlainSpotter on 2020/09/10 00:57
Find something else to do. As time goes on, and as this program changes hands, the advertising gets more and more disruptive. And don't ever change your equipment. Changing equipment causes you to lose puzzles you own, points you've earned, and any hope of tech support. They answer your emails, but the process to get your puzzles back is complicated and convoluted. You can have your puzzles back if you have kept meticulous records of what you had, because the developer doesn't. I can't imagine anybody going through the process they throw up as a roadblock to getting what you already own. This is an irresponsible company, with no regard whatever for their customers. Don't buy it. Don't use it. Don't recommend it. This sort of company needs to be run off the Apple App Store.
My review
by D-Tejano on 2020/09/09 23:33
I believe the puzzle games are excellent. I am no longer able to work. I am a nurse and loved helping people. However, because my husband has cancer I cannot risk working with individuals who are ill. This game helps me a lot and rids me of my boredom. Thank you for supplying such great games. They area God sent. Thank-you, Diana

by Artlady 1 on 2020/09/09 19:58
I post my completed puzzels on FB and create quite a bit of interest. The app is easy to use, visually appealing and relaxing. Jigsaw Puzzle has my highest rating! Please bring back the ability to post the completed puzzle on Facebook with your logo. Just posting the photo I used is not good enough. I am asked if that is the puzzle or not. I love promoting you!
Free coins
by La Deb on 2020/09/09 17:52
When I did my first puzzle today I got a message that said if I buy any puzzle pack I would get some free coins. I purchased a puzzle pack but b4 I touched claim prize it disappeared and I didn’t get my free coins. I dont plan on purchasing anymore puzzle packs until I get my free coins. I feel like I have been ripped off. 2nd request It’s really too bad you can’t take the time to satisfy a customer by replying to their issue. I won’t delete the game bcuz I have too much invested in puzzles but I will not buy anymore puzzle packs and get involved in your special games. “Thanks so much for being swell in your replies to customer reviews”.
Love the puzzle but think the chest game is rigged.
by Lisalovestravel on 2020/09/09 16:23
I am obsessed with doing puzzles on the app. They are so relaxing. And I pay the monthly fee to avoid commercials. When I finish a puzzle, I typically play a few rounds of “pick a chest” to win coins for free puzzles. The game requires watching a video. I have to believe the game is set up so you seldom/never win the largest amount of coins. You have a one in three chance. I have never been so unlucky in a game.
I’m Addicted
by mareashworth on 2020/09/09 16:13
I have been working your puzzles for quite a while but since the pandemic, I have become addicted. It’s very relaxing.I like to work on two or three at a time. I love landscapes, travel cities and countrysides, and early American life.
I love this app but
by rmmpuzzles on 2020/09/09 14:46
I have been using this app for a number of years and had no complaints up to the last update. I do not have internet at home and I was not able to open any puzzles in my new puzzle pack. The message said I could not download unless I was a VIP member. I was very disappointed as I like to play several puzzles every night.
The 3 issues I have
by gghhrrttsswweequit on 2020/09/09 01:59
This is a decent game but I have three areas of improvement for the developers to address. 1. When you first start the game you are confronted with its main screen that contains no less than 18 different icons which you can click on. Takes a while to become comfortable navigating this very busy main screen. 2. When you move a puzzle piece and place it where it goes, it doesn't always fall into its spot. You are forced to move it again. This annoys me. I wish there was an option to turn this off. 3. You earn coins at a very slow rate. You can unlock puzzle packs for thousands of coins, but be prepared for it to not be anytime soon. You literally only earn two or three queens per puzzle. I am nowhere near close to purchasing a puzzle pack. Having said that, my actual concern regarding the acquisition of coins is this; there are achievements, which I like. Generally, when playing any games that have objectives for you to complete, you receive a reward. There is no indication that you are receiving coins after an achievement is reached. No indication that you are receiving any reward whatsoever. So I am finishing puzzles left and right, yet as far as I can tell I have not received a single thing for doing so. You are able to watch an ad after finishing each puzzle in order to amass coins in this fashion. But I believe that is it. So I guess to the developers I would say please add some sort of reward banner indicating what you have earned.
Puzzle lovers dream
by ChelbiMustang on 2020/03/12 14:14
I love this app because it’s the best way to enjoy puzzles without the mess and expense of tangible ones. Plus, there are never missing pieces! For only a few dollars you get 30 or more puzzles. You can’t do that with “real” puzzles! If you love jigsaw puzzles, this app is for you! I like the fact I can pause the game when I’m not actively working on a puzzle so I can see how much actual time it took to complete. I challenge myself to improve my time because it’s a way to exercise the brain. I have not had the same negative experience as some of the reviews I’ve seen posted over the recent hours/days. Mine doesn’t crash or have too many ads. Someone gave the game 1 star because it’s “not really free” but the APP is free. It’s clearly stated in the App Store, when you read the fine print, that there are “in app purchases” therefore it’s not advertised as “always” free. There is a free daily puzzle. I often start several daily puzzles and leave them to finish later. So I have 2 or 3 in my “in progress” bucket all the time. If you only want truly free puzzles take advantage of the daily ones. Otherwise buy puzzle packs on sale. There are puzzle packs for $0.99, $1.99 and $2.99 that are good ones. Each puzzle pack has around 30 or so which can be done over and over with various levels of difficulty to challenge you. There are ways to enjoy the app without spending more than $3. Get creative. I’ve used several other puzzle apps and I like this one the best.
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.
Improvement
by Iluvshops on 2019/12/30 03:26
I want to update my earlier review because there have been some significant changes (some good/some bad). Most importantly praise is warranted because the puzzle hardly ever crashes anymore -- thank you! Some things I'm not so happy about are the following: (1) Trays are useless and take up valuable board space; (2) there are 2 puzzle packs that I do not want (taking up valuable data space) that have been placed in my puzzles. I cannot delete them. I will never use them and I would like to remove them. Please tell me how. (3) I want to do puzzles at my pace when I have the time. I don't want the annoying messages that tell me how many puzzles I have completed or that I need to complete more, etc. Just please allow me to utilize the game the way I want to. Maybe this is as a result of the upgrade to get rid of ads, not sure. Had I known I would be assaulted with all these messages after every puzzle completion, I would never have upgraded. The game should have a feature to turn off all annoying messages. Thank you for listening! love this puzzle app when it works. The problem is that it constantly crashes and freezes, and sometimes the screen just goes black (but ad at bottom still plays lol). I have to close the app and wait a bit then try reopening so it will reload (hopefully). Why can't these bugs be fixed? I'm not the only one complaining about them. I can't delete and reinstall because I will loose all purchased puzzle packs!
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!
New update
by Juli3bugg on 2020/04/12 04:51
I’m not crazy about the constant pop up between every action to watch an ad for the chance to win more points. 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. 😁
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.
Update last week was ill conceived. Now fixed.
by Trolley Molly on 2020/02/13 14:19
Updated review: 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 5 stars. It’s back to its old self with some new, optional features! 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...
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!!!
Made the trays optional—now do the “objectives”!
by OnthBeach54 on 2020/02/01 15:33
I am totally rewriting my last 1-star reviews to reflect the fact that at last the developers have responded to the flood of complaints regarding those annoying trays, and did the logical thing of making them totally optional on the puzzle board. Thank you! I have not played at all for the last months and have not had a chance to evaluate some of the other complaints Mentioned in other folks’ reviews, so will hold off on giving more than a 3-star review. In particular, the last few times I opened the puzzle and in quickly checking out the tray update, I did notice the also-annoying “objectives” that pop up unasked for, and agree that they, too should be optional. The objective of doing puzzles is pretty clear—to enjoy the process of doing the puzzle and satisfaction of completing it. Let us set our own objectives and quit treating like little children who have come (in our modern society) to expect a gold star every time they do the least little thing correctly (and hence never learn to be self motivated to accomplish for their own sense of accomplishment). Many many reviewers say they don’t like the objectives so I hope the developers listen some more. I mean, getting a pop-up because I expanded or contracted the size of the puzzle board—come on, already!! How ridiculous is that? I have been doing that for years. Listen up, puzzle developers!
Great app, but a billion pop ups
by ntaga on 2020/08/28 21:33
I bought this app many years ago and have recommended it to numerous friends. Pay the $4.99 (I understand its more now) to get rid of ads and have the option to use your own photos, I advised. There have been a few problems over the years, but customer service is very helpful and responsive and most of my issues have been fixed through updates after I contacted them. That said, I paid to get rid of ads. I don’t get them from outside companies, but am constantly being bombarded with puzzle pitches or requests to watch a video to earn points every time I finish a puzzle. Here are my suggestions: For those of us who paid for no ads, the puzzle lists and featured puzzles on the opening page are fine. Don’t push puzzles otherwise. Put a small link on the opening page for those who want to earn puzzle credits. Don’t make me have to close a screen to avoid watching. I see lots of complaints about puzzle trays, but I like them, especially since you made them unobtrusive and I can turn them on or off in the options. They are useful when the puzzle has few defined color blocks and you have to work strictly by piece shape. Overall, this app has saved my sanity throughout this stressful few months. I’m working lots of puzzles with peaceful scenes and happy topics.
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!
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!
Love it,but...
by Singagain on 2020/04/13 00:52
Love it...but...the main complaint I have is that when the pieces are first scattered they are flung so hard that some of them get lost on the sidelines. I would prefer that they were all just dumped in the middle so I could sort the pieces myself, into the piles I choose as I would have to do anyway. As it is, I cannot move the tray far enough (up, down, or to either side) to get some of the pieces and have to use the light bulb as many as a dozen times to find and then drag a lost piece out of hiding. I don’t recall having to do this process before: when I was playing last year. Otherwise, I absolutely love the beautiful puzzles I have purchased and was so happy to find this website again after my IPad went down last year. In addition, I was overjoyed to find that I still had the puzzles I had purchased before, some of which I dearly loved and thought were gone. With a touch of the button they were restored to me. I was happily surprised and moved that they were archived so that if I do have trouble with this IPad and have to buy another, the puzzles will still go with me to another unit. Lastly, the puzzle graphics on this website are better than another one I was going to try (but I didn’t like scrolling the pieces to find what I was looking for so I nixed that right away.
Well-maintained app with lots of puzzle choices
by Lusaney on 2020/07/15 11:25
I’ve been very pleased with the people who created and maintain this app. There is constant improvement in the app, and I have found them to be responsive to problems. There are many different types of puzzles available, any of which you can purchase, but some of which you can purchase with “coins” you accumulate by solving each puzzle. The higher the piece count of the puzzle you solve (you can decide this for each puzzle you work on), the more coins you get for solving it. There are different work spaces available, and trays on which to store puzzle pieces, if you want to use them. You get to choose your background and other settings. There are always ads offering new puzzles, though the ads can easily be dismissed. There are often sales on puzzle packs. I went overboard in buying from sales when I first started playing, so be careful not to buy more than you than you can actually solve in a reasonable amount of time. The puzzles do take up space on your drive, and I got to the point where I needed to clean them out to free up space. But if you delete puzzle packs you’ve purchased, don’t worry. You can restore them if you want any back.
GREAT Puzzles! GREAT Support!
by Nels A on 2020/04/08 13:27
I look forward to these puzzles every day! Having both a free puzzle everyday and reasonably priced puzzles to purchase has made this my favorite web app! I used to purchase puzzles and take over a table in my house. No more, the puzzles go with me. I look forward to waiting at appointments so I can work the puzzles. I especially like that you can make the puzzle as difficult or easy as you want. You can increase/decrease the number of pieces and whether you want the pieces to be scattered or in their actual direction. Bottom line, you can make the puzzles personalized to your skill level. Some days, I make it difficult and some days easier. The best thing is that the developers support for the puzzles is OUTSTANDING/EXCELLENT. Recently, I had an issue and the response was extremely respectful and personalized. I feel as though the developers care about the user and want them to have a great experience. Yes, there were some issues several months ago, but these issues have been recognized and fixed. In addition, the puzzles are continuously improved based on user feedback. When a change is made you can use it or turn it off, you are not forced to change.
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.
Fun, but there are some problems.
by Pinehillgirl on 2020/08/19 18:43
This is an update to my earlier review. I lowered my rating from 5 stars to 3 stars. The reason mostly has to do with the free credits. When I first discovered that I could earn credits and then use them to buy puzzles, I was excited! Being retired, I have lots of time to study the puzzle packs and decide which ones I want. I keep a running list on my iPad. If I remember correctly, at first all puzzle packs could be purchased with credits. Now, there are very few, and NONE of the newer packs can be bought with credits. This seems unfair to the players. And, it is just getting worse! Every week it seems as though fewer puzzles are available for purchase using credits. I feel bad for the people who bought credits. It's like they wasted their money, and there is no way to get a refund. The changes come with every update. I have had this app a very long time. Over the years, I have bought a number of puzzle packs. I won't be buying any more. I will just work the puzzles I have. I just recently discovered how much fun it is to work jigsaw puzzles on my iPad. This app is especially nice. It has lovely puzzles and the option to have different numbers of pieces. I can work one that is really easy or apply myself and work one that is more difficult. I highly recommend it!
Great App, even “Free”
by Kittykate249 on 2020/06/20 00:04
I VERY rarely use real money on in-app purchases or gaming apps. This puzzle app is no exception- I have not spent a cent. However, by starting the free daily puzzles everyday, whether I finish them then or not, and by keeping an eye on rotating free puzzles in the store, I have found myself with an extreme surplus of content. Yes, on occasion you watch an ad. But the content creators have to have a way to make money. So for those of us who don’t want to shell out our physical cash, why not pay with 30 seconds of time? It’s not like you have to actually watch the ad- you can set your phone down and get a glass of water if you’re that determined. There are definitely puzzles I like more than others, but a hot tip- you can start the daily puzzle as many times as you want in different sizes. So if you really like one, start it a few times, come back in the future, and enjoy varying challenges over a few months! Overall, I love this app, love the puzzles, and appreciate that the creators make it possible to TRULY play it for free, without locking you out after a certain amount of time or puzzles completed. I look forward to continuing to watch ads in order to support your development.
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.... :(
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.
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.
Good, almost great, but...
by BuckMT on 2020/02/18 04:09
Excellent concept - take various graphics (pictures, paintings, drawings, etc.), write a program to parse it into puzzle pieces, and voila! hours of relaxing entertainment. Having said that... The trays are unnecessary and annoying. We don’t want the pesky objectives. Quit trying to improve on something elegant, simple and satisfying. Worst of all, apparently one of the financial wonks found that we were doing too many puzzles, accumulating too many credits, and getting too many free puzzle packs with those credits (especially when they’re on sale!) so now the great “sales” offered require only cash. Again and again and again. They couldn’t just leave it at the challenge of finishing a Gazillion puzzles and getting those paltry 34 credits a pop, then the joy! of shopping for a puzzle pack, on sale, and allowing the use of those credits. Oh sure, every once in a while a puzzle pack, not on sale, and nothing but your one-eyed great aunt would like, will pop up that can be acquired with credits (lots and lots of credits). Come on mw folks - don’t be so cynical, keep the great sales but let us use credits. We’ll keep coming back for more, and every once in a while we’ll buy a pack we can’t live without and use CASH!
Boring!
by Tom472 on 2020/07/20 00:28
I never write reviews, but have become increasing frustrated with the changes to this app. With each update more and more features which made this a very fun app have been removed. Getting to be a very boring, ho hum app! This had been my most favorite game app that is available! I even paid the extra not to have the ads that interrupt my playing. I have completed over 1000 puzzles. I still like the variety of puzzles and the free one each day, which I play for that day and leave until the next free one. It used to be that if you collected enough coins you could use them to get new puzzle pack, but they have eliminated that feature for the most part. Now you must pay cash for almost all addition puzzle. Occasionally there are puzzles that you can us the coins to get, but they are mostly very unappealing puzzles that no one would buy with money. They have also lowered the number of coins for completed puzzles and no longer tell you how many you can earn for the different number of puzzle pieces you chose, so much of the challenge has been removed and not as much fun to play. The number of objectives not longer very challenging. Not sure why anyone would watch any ads to get coins as the coins are useless! So disappointing to see how this app has been changed from it’s original, and not for the better!
Just gets worse
by Enthous on 2020/05/16 12:34
I’ve been so disappointed in the updates for this. The latest updates each add more stuff to the experience that is just plain distracting. First the ads for puzzle packs and splash screens were introduced, adding multiple tap requirements just to get to my puzzle. Then the trays got added that steal precious screen real estate and don’t work well. I thought I’d give them a try but every time I try to scroll through the pieces the tray closes. Apparently if you move more than a pixel in the opposite direction of your swipe it closes the tray. The newest one now has objectives that I’m not interested in and introduce more taps in the game process. All of this may be entertaining to some people but I for one would like to turn all this distraction off in the settings: the splash screen, the trays and the objectives. I recognize the ads to sell pictures will probably not go away but they’re so annoying. They don’t just appear when the app is opened but every time you got to the home screen. I’ve been collecting their “rewards” coins to purchase a puzzle collection but my coins don’t work on the one I want. What the? They also sell these coins. Can you imagine paying for coins and not being able to use them to buy the puzzles you want? This app is getting close to permanent removal from my device.
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.
update new review
by Whimpy55 on 2019/11/27 21:35
This is one of the easiest puzzles to do. Room to arrange each puzzle piece, and so simple to figure out by clicking onto just the pieces to make the frame then click on the green arrow and bring up the rest of the pieces. Love it. Have been using this app for years now and still like it. Don’t know what’s happened to this game, but it’s just not the same. The frame moves all over the place, the colored background doesn’t fit the full page, it’s just not as good as it was before. I use to do a couple of puzzles a day, now days will go by before I’m even interested. Why they felt they had to mess with something that wasn’t broke is beyond me. Changes were not for the better!! Over time, I keep seeing bug fixes have been made, and updates. My question is what’s with the new “trays” in the upper left corner and why doesn’t the background color fill the entire page? I have no use for the trays, whatever they are so why add them? It takes up room for puzzle pieces. They gave a brief explanation on how to use the trays but makes no sense to me. I have no use for them. The only thing I can say that needs to be improved is having the colored background fill the entire page.
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... 😇
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.
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.
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.
Earning Coins
by lilwaz on 2020/08/11 13:48
For years this was a 5 star game!!!!! Playing this game used to be fun in that you could challenge yourself to earn enough coins doing puzzles so you could buy different puzzle packs without having to spend real money. But sadly it has become another money hungry game. Yes, they have given you more chances to win coins by watching different ads, but in doing so, they took away being able to buy puzzles with the coins and you can only get puzzle packs by spending real money. Yes there are still a few packs that you can get with coins but they are few and far between. And none are very interesting. I had a small notebook with several packs written down that I was trying to get enough coins to purchase. And now there is not even one that I can get without spending money!!!! They took them all away!!!! I would rather them take away the chances to win coins and go back to the original way so that you can get the puzzle packs that are worth doing. I have been playing this game for years, and YES, I did spend real money sometimes so I could get a puzzle pack that I really wanted without having to wait and get enough coins to do the puzzles. But now I’m thinking of deleting. What’s the point if I can’t earn coins to get the good packs? So sad to see a great game become a money hungry game like so many other games out there!!!! Not fun any more!!!!

Generally this is my go to app for downtime. I play it on my IPAD Pro so that the screen is not too small. It was not enjoyable, for me on a smaller screen as I need reading glasses to play. I like that there are so many different genres of puzzles. Something for everyone and for every mood, season and holiday. I have never had the crash issues that others seem to have. So it could be service provider or speed. However, I do agree the trays are an annoyance and just in the way taking up valuable space on a small screen. I love that one can change the background color to make puzzle pieces more easily seen depending on colors. And that the backgrounds can be more soothing on the eyes in contrast to the puzzle pieces. I am not a fan of the new “Clue” series or others like it. However, I’m sure many are and I can just opt out quickly. I especially like that one can earn credits to buy new puzzle packs without having to spend money. I have recommended this to several other who have become as addicted as I. Thank you for your dedication to continuing to perfect the experience.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
Jigsaw puzzle updates are awesome
by Pearle Newton on 2020/02/13 23:27
I love this puzzle app! I will admit I am hard on ratings. This comes as close to a 5 star as I have ever seen in a game. The app owners are right on top of any problems that come up, which is a huge plus! Daily free puzzles, many different puzzle packs suited for anyone and app techs that are on top of any problem...oh and you don’t have to spend money for the puzzle packs you want because you collect coins for every puzzle you finish. You can pay for the puzzle packs if you can’t wait or use your coins for them. I collect coins from finished puzzles and have never had to pay $. The only reason I didn’t give it a 5 star rating is that I use my phone to play the game, and I have played this for years, so I have changed phones twice and LOST all my puzzles and progress that I have finished and work I had done. I had almost finished a puzzle pack only to have to do it all over again...sigh. That is a lot of work and time down the drain!!! So I am still upset about that. They need a way to back up your work like they back up your purchases. That would get them 5 stars from me.
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.
Longtime user - disappointed with recent money grab
by Foxy_Girl5 on 2020/02/14 01:46
I have been using this app daily for quite some time now and I love many things about it. I purchased the “no ad” version and have purchased many puzzle packs both with money and with earned credits. Recently, a couple significant differences cannot be ignored and are incredibly disappointing. The first is that only a handful of puzzles can be purchased with credits. Previously a user could purchase almost any puzzle pack with credits. I believe this is unfair, especially for those users who purchased credits! I have also noticed the cash prices of almost all the puzzles have gone up. The second is I purchased the “no ad” version of the app. However, for around a week, I was bugged with a pop up trying to entice me to download a word game in exchange for a free puzzle. Call me old school, but it looked like an ad to me! I love this app and want so much to give it the five stars it deserves but can’t do so until the money grab tactics cease. At the very least, reinstate the option to purchase puzzles with credits. I can’t be the only person who sees through these machinations. Let’s have some respect for the customer!!!!
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!
Quirky Upgrades?
by Kikistang on 2019/12/10 15:17
I have been using this jigsaw puzzle app for a few years now. At first, I only did the free ones but I LOVED it so much, I eventually paid for the app and bought some of the many puzzle packs. (You can even make your own puzzle out of your photos.) In the past month or so, it seems the developers thought it a good idea to make some changes... or “upgrades”. I’m sure the intention was to attract more people to pay for the app. I, however, think they’ve made a terrible mistake. Since their changes have taken effect, the puzzles lag, meaning that it takes too long for the computer to recognize that, yes, I put the correct piece in place. In addition the developers have added goals and a multiple tray feature. The goals can just be ignored and not have it ruin your puzzling experience, but the multiple trays cannot be hidden. I wish I could turn them off completely in settings or somewhere. I don’t need more than one play area, and my pinky accidentally taps it from time to time, slowing me down and causing some real frustration! In short, the “upgrades” are more like downgrades, and I hope the developers see this and work to actually improve the lag time and other issues.
Loving the game
by iDoneit on 2019/12/07 18:50
I really do love this game but I can’t give it five stars. We haven’t gotten there yet. This game has been wonderful. It has kept me busy when my patience would not have held out. Still, I have some issues with it. I read in some reviews that there is a way to see the final picture while we are working on it but I can’t figure out how to do that (unless you are clicking out to the main board to see the pic- that wouldn’t get 5 stars either- too many steps and too small) nor have I seen instructions available. I love that you added tiers because I do like to group my pieces but why can’t you pull a tier down and work within there to put the pieces together? I thought I was getting extra work space, which it isn’t. The one and only time I “emptied” a tier it threw all the pieces all over the ‘tabletop’ and I had to gather them up again- not useful. Lastly, I would like to be able to zoom in on a finished puzzle. All I have found is that it fills up the screen and then goes away. - I haven’t checked out the archive... This game does a lot right. I am thankful for having it available.
Even better since recent update
by Laneybelle on 2020/03/21 04:15
This has long been one of my favorite apps for relaxing and winding down at the end of the day – the pictures and subjects of puzzles are diverse, the controls are easy to use, the variety of difficulties are easy to change (when you’re just too tired to really think and only want to zone out watching a pretty picture grow under you hands, versus those days when you really need an engrossing challenge to take your mind off everything else). Two thumbs up, five stars, and yay! Is my rating. Just wish there were some way to identify the puzzle pack for the pictures that flood the screen when the app first open. Grrrr. Got notice of “developer response,” was hopeful that meant I could find that puzzle pack to purchase... but cannot find the response! One more update - was able to find response (I was looking in wrong place) and now have the puzzle pack I wanted. I really appreciate how Oromo and PERSISTENT the developers were in helping me. Great app from great company with great customer setvices!
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.
Loved this game but glitches are making it impossible to solve the puzzles
by rissa-ma on 2020/03/14 15:34
I have loved his app for a few years now and the minor issues have been tolerable because the ability to complete the puzzle itself hasn’t been affected, until now. I have it 3 stars because of the fact that I’ve enjoyed this game for so long (on various devices) but if I hadn’t had past experience with it I would give it 1 star because the recent updates have only caused more glitches to the point where I have to completely close out the app and wait a few minutes before being able to get back on. My issue now is that during the “Clue” special I’ve almost completed it and am 1 away from solving the whole thing but I updated the app last night and attempted to go on and solve the puzzle only for the game to give me two of the same shape, corner pieces, but both are completely different picture wise, and when trying to do the rest of the edge pieces most of them don’t match up at all making it literally impossible to complete. I’m very frustrated by this and have even started looking for other jigsaw puzzle apps to replace this one.
