Glitchy af
by lisacapri on 2019/08/21 17:24
Updated it yesterday and now it’s all glitchy and slow, what the heck!
Still love this app 4 years later, but...
by Mapdiggy on 2019/08/21 02:34
Bugs fixed! Great puzzle app!
Great app
by Gmr62441 on 2019/08/20 22:07
Love this app! Use it daily, very relaxing. My only complaint is it seems to freeze up more often and nothing will move for a few seconds and then it starts up again. Otherwise a wonderful way to relax. Especially after the last update it freezes up and the “scatter” doesn’t work as well as before this last update. Update August 20, 2019. Thevfrezing up just seems to be worse all the time! Please fix!
Update problems
by jad2play on 2019/08/19 15:13
After completing a puzzle I don’t receive the 10 coins?
Have to enter email password to play
by ToniaCW1978 on 2019/08/19 13:26
I really wish your developers would stop messing around something that worked just fine. Now we have to enter our email password?? Why? The two shouldn’t need to be connected.
Great puzzles!
by Rdst148 on 2019/08/18 17:50
I would pay extra to have an option to automatically form edges!

Love this game!!
by MsLaLa12 on 2019/08/17 23:35
This game is perfect for me! Exactly what I like for a puzzle game. Very sad I can only get it on Apple - I have a dell tablet I wish I could play it on. Love the free puzzle a day option and a way to get credit to purchase more.
Best jigsaw puzzle app
by Sally Salal on 2019/08/17 23:21
I have played this app on my iPad 2 and now I play it on my new 6th generation iPad. It has great selections of puzzles and great prices on the in app purchases. Beautiful pictures, wide varieties of subjects, and keeps the puzzles you have in progress. Love the coins for each puzzle played to purchase more puzzle packs and the free puzzle packs. Thank you for hours of enjoyment!
:(
by Bellababe2009 on 2019/08/17 18:03
I have not bought any new puzzles in a few months, yet now, in the last couple months, it's saying I'm at max storage on my iPad,,,,,,,,app takes forever to open,,,,,,,sometimes not at all,,,,,I've gone through and deleted old puzzles - problem remains,,,,,,,,have to reboot iPad every time in order for it to work',,,,,,,,not pleased
When it’s good, it’s very, very good but when it’s bad...
by Sweet Annie 25 on 2019/08/17 17:16
I downloaded the daily free puzzle the other day and my iPad has been frozen (on this site) ever since! So I switched to a different puzzle site. I keep getting notifications to “come back”! I love the puzzles when they work, but I’ve had so much trouble downloading and getting new puzzles that I paid good money for to show up, that I don’t think this site is worth the money and the free puzzles cause my iPad to freeze up. 8/16/19- This is an on-going issue that affects not only daily free puzzles but also newly purchased puzzle packs. Very frustrating! The latest problem is that AARP shows a full page advertisement asking about home caregivers and there’s no way to get them off the site. This has been going on for a few days now and has happened more than once. I didn’t know that AARP would hi jack a site. By any chance, are they a copy cat? Is there anything you can do about this? It sure adds to the frustration!
Outline
by Missouri Belle on 2019/08/17 16:54
I used to be able to complete the outline of a puzzle then close it, leave it for a while and come back to find the outline still there. No more! Now, if I leave the outline, close the ap and come back later the outline is gone and I have to start over. What’s up with that?
Needs work
by Davidleestacy on 2019/08/17 13:04
After the last update, you have to swipe up multiple times to close the application. Not sure what has changed just frustrating!
Ruined a good thing
by NancyCBoepple on 2019/08/17 04:57
The table space is too small with two edges being too wide and the other two too thin. The actual table is too small.. it’s annoying me already . The pieces seem harder to move and when I open the puzzle there are lost pieces in the edges where I can’t see them. Fixing bugs are good but messin with what was fine.. not good. Could have gotten rid of some of the horrible table colors that rip your retinas out but hey 🤷🏼‍♀️ I was so happy playin my stupid puzzles and you go and “fix” it. Oy! Off to check other puzzles 😔 8/17/19 I agree with mollytrolly. The responses to the puzzle pieces are awful. I hold in the middle and have to keep tapping it to get it to the right spot. Instead of having fun I’m getting frustrated and annoyed. I used to be able to move the pieces around swiftly but now I just want to slap my iPad.. arg!
Pieces start graying out when 90% done with puzzle
by Jatoy10 on 2019/08/16 22:40
I previously enjoyed this app, but the last two puzzles that I started I have been unable to finish. Once I reach over 90% completion, the pieces start graying out as soon as I touch them. Once they gray out I am no longer able to move that piece. It is extremely frustrating to spend over 10 hours on a puzzle and not be able to finish!
Good, But Is Becoming Kinda Unplayable
by SpazzieMcgee on 2019/08/16 22:20
I love this game, and play nearly every day. Alas, the game has a habit of randomly closing out, about every five minutes or so. It’s relaxing, but when you can’t go for more than three minutes without the game freezing and crashing, it undermines that. Otherwise, fun!
Pleas reissues all the hundreds I bought before you stopped letting me access them. Thanks
by Kathy's apps on 2019/08/16 22:17
You’ve disconnected your original puzzles of which I bought hundreds!!!! And I’d like to know if I can get them all back now. I spent a lot of money on them and loved doing them. Please re- issue the ones I bought. I was so disappointed when you stopped making then available to me. Kathleen Matthews - thank you!!😅
Puzzle error
by BatiL on 2019/08/16 22:00
Loading puzzle it completely blanked and froze.
You’re Losing Me
by myrtlemo on 2019/08/16 16:51
I used to love this app but it has become really frustrating. I have dozens of your puzzle packs and work 4 or more daily. I’m losing interest because for several reasons: 1)I used to be able to slide a selected piece out from under other pieces but now have to remove all the pieces to get the one I want; 2)It’s getting nearly impossible to complete a pack because not all completed puzzles get recorded as completed no matter how many times they are done correctly.
PLEASE FIX IT!!!!!
by JEA MOM IN SC on 2019/08/16 14:09
I work a puzzle and complete it, and the next day it appears in PUZZLES IN PROGRESS. Right now for the pass several weeks I have been working the SAME 5-7 puzzles day after day completing them each time. I would love to order more but until this problem is fixed— sorry! Please help. I use to enjoy doing the puzzles but after same ones day after day I am beginning to ge bored! AGAIN PLEASE FIX THIS!! VERY DISAPPOINTED!
Last Update
by Mad in the Methow on 2019/08/16 03:17
The last update seems to be very glitchy. I can only download the latest free puzzle once out of a dozen tries. Very disappointing.
Something went wrong..
by Roblox Bloxxer on 2019/08/16 02:20
I LOVE this game and I have been doing a puzzle or two a day consistently. I ran out of free puzzles to do and I got an offer to upgrade to premium for $5 and I’ll get to make my own puzzle, no ads, and get two packs of puzzles (total of 95 puzzles). I got all that, EXCEPT for the 95 puzzles offered... I got two completely different puzzle packs that only have 55 in total. It’s still an good amount to have bought but this was definitely not the offer I was promised..
Deleting puzzles
by bakersfield5 on 2019/08/16 00:21
You keep deleting completed puzzles, Very frustrating, It started with the upgrade, I hope that you are working on this, This my only complaint. I really enjoy your puzzles,
Puzzle
by Sibby2 on 2019/08/16 00:12
When trying to place or slide a piece into place the puzzle moves and you can’t put it into its slot
Too bad
by JayInCorrales on 2019/08/15 21:28
App now demands I enter my password for the App Store before playing. No reason for that other than it’s been compromised. Bye, bye.
Love it,but glitches
by DouglasDG on 2019/08/15 16:23
I love the game, but the last two updates have caused problems. Several of the puzzles I have completed, show up in the puzzles in progress and I have to do them again. In some cases puzzles is there 3 or 4 times
Stop cheaping out
by duffyb on 2019/08/15 12:25
Puzzles are pretty good but when it comes to free coins, there is usually a “network error” making them unavailable. Don’t offer it if you don’t plan to provide it.
LOVE!!
by Loolooleaps on 2019/08/15 05:24
this is my favorite app. It helps me calm down when i have anxiety, gives me something to do while i’m bored, it’s so relaxing and very easy to use! i love how there are minimal ads and that there’s no lagging! another huge plus for me is that there are so many options, not just for the paid version but for the free version as well (which is what i have). i love the different categorized puzzles! moral of the story, i love this app, great game. if you want it definitely get it!! this is the only jigsaw puzzle app that i actually like and appreciate!!
Still haven’t fix the “Bug”
by :;'jh on 2019/08/15 02:30
Several updates ago...a new bug came into play that wasn’t there before. Now when you leave a puzzle and come back to it later, you click on puzzles in progress, it shows your puzzle is 87% complete, you click on the icon, puzzle comes up, scrambles and you are starting all over. After my third time on one puzzle and two times on another...I am done!! I use to love this app...played it all the time...now so frustrated I don’t see myself wasting time on it re- doing the same puzzle over and over again.
They broke it.... and fixed it .... and broke it again
by skids73 on 2019/08/15 00:52
The latest update breaks the Apple Pencil. I have no idea what they did, but it’s almost impossible to move puzzle pieces now.... the latest update fixes this.... now, they broke the backgrounds .... this isn’t the first time, .... when it works, the app is great, I just wish they had better quality control in their updates. This is going to make me disable automatic updates.....
Love It But Disappointed
by wendyjo11 on 2019/08/14 23:59
I love this game but I was really hoping that this update would fix the issue where the piece turn invisible and slide under the board when you try and move them. I started another puzzle while waiting but I am wondering if it is going to happen again as I get near completion and I’m afraid to keep going just in case the fix is around the corner. So...any updates?
Puzzle Crashes
by dpen on 2019/08/14 17:59
Love working these puzzles but app keeps crashing. I’m about to make a move and it just closes. Happens several times a day. I also have problems with the board locking up. I can’t move a piece or close the app. This is extremely frustrating. Hope they are fixed soon I don’t want to look for another app.
App broken for iPhone X
by jscphone on 2019/08/14 11:58
Recent update broke the swipe to exit so you can’t exit.

Not so much puzzles but great app!
by xXjustin playzXx on 2019/08/13 23:13
I love this game so much but it only has one problem.....you only start with twelve puzzles and i really would love if you added at least 1 more pack of puzzles with sceneryand if you would do that it would deserve a 5 star rating from me.
No religious puzzle
by Yatidou on 2019/08/13 23:07
Please don’t put any religious theme puzzle on the daily puzzle! Thanks
What’s happened to this app???
by AnnieWood on 2019/08/13 02:16
I have been doing puzzles on this app for probably 2 years. Have tried many others and after finding this one, deleted all others. I love the challenges and goals and that’s probably what I enjoy most. It also makes me purchase more. But several months ago when going to check on my goals, they said they were updating them and would be back in a few days. Like I said that was several months ago. I have done 2 updates and nothing has changed. A few days ago, I have moved on to another puzzle app. It’s time they get it fixed!
Ghosting pieces
by angiesmiles30 on 2019/08/13 02:00
Reported several times. Puzzles at varying completions suddenly stop working. The puzzle pieces will ‘ghost’ after touching them. Been going on for over 2 months. Get replies from developer that they ‘just’ been notified of the issue...no, not true.
Best Jigsaw App
by KimVDV on 2019/08/13 00:39
Have tried various jigsaw apps and this one is the best! Left a review before and meant to give it five stars then as well.
Annoying!
by youreadithere on 2019/08/12 23:53
I love the puzzle part but the ads keep distracting me. There is no room to put the puzzle pieces to the side because the ads take up all the space!
Ads. And not a lot of free puzzles
by zontreck on 2019/08/12 11:54
Each individual puzzle is like $1-$4. And I couldn't see anyway to remove ads
Puzzle app
by oineapple on 2019/08/12 10:49
I love this app but after the last upgrade it doesn’t work any longer.
Great game
by Jump4py on 2019/08/12 07:05
Lots of free puzzles to solve and a new one everyday. I like being able to work on different puzzles with different piece counts
Puzzle thanks
by Chaff1 on 2019/08/12 02:39
I am suffering from a brain injury, and puzzles are a mainstay for me😃 and improving my memory. They are such a blessing for me. Thank you!
I love my jigsaw puzzle app!!!
by smartblond1969 on 2019/08/11 22:17
I love puzzles, and virtual puzzles are so much better than setting up a card table and spending hours on a puzzle just to take it apart!
I used to love this app, but not much anymore!
by deileen54 on 2019/08/11 21:42
I don’t know why this change was made, but before I could touch a puzzle piece and I connected with it to move it. Now I touch a piece and I get everything but the piece that I want! I don’t like to use the ability to just show the outline pieces to make it easier to do the boarders. Now it seems that is all I can do to not get so frustrated with putting a puzzle together. Please if possible change back to when you touch a piece you will connect with that piece. Thank you
App used to work well
by sweetmyrtle on 2019/08/11 19:27
App was great but it has an issue lately. I used some credits to buy a puzzle pack a few days ago but can’t download the puzzles. App tells me to connect to the internet but I am connected to my home internet, which I working well. I have restarted my iPad as the FAQ’s suggested, but nothing will download. I have another puzzle pack which I obtained the same way a few months ago and the puzzles downloaded fine and they operate well. I contacted the app developer via email from within the “help” section but have not received a reply. I like the app, but will search for another one.
Scam app
by 12@wc on 2019/08/11 18:34
They say 75% off and when you check it out all puzzles are Only 33% and 50% off and you pay for the add free version And still get there adds it says nothing about still getting there Adds pushed on you when you upgrade it says ADD FREE And they offer very very little puzzles that guys would like
Love this app
by pattykayl on 2019/08/11 16:52
This is my favorite puzzle app. It is always on my iPhone and my iPad so I can pick up where I’ve left off. I have done many hundreds of puzzles. I must had thousands in my own gallery to pick from. I just wish there was some way so save them in the app so the done ones show up as done when I switch phones or iPads and have to download the app again.
Keeps crashing!!!!!

While doing puzzle....shuts down
Please, Please Fix the “Objectives”
by ZoePita on 2019/08/11 13:48
Hello, I have used this app for many, many years! In fact not a day goes by without me working on the latest puzzle. My husband and I were in a competition with each other by doing the “Objectives” (listed in the Gallery section) until several months ago when there is no visibility of it. It states “Objectives are temporarily unavailable. All your progress made before the update has been saved. Stay tuned.” Well, we have been Waiting, waiting and more waiting for this fix! Please fix this ASAP so that we may continue our competition. If it were not for this problem, I would rate this app 100% Awesomeness! Thank you. Sincerely, ZoePita
I would give this 5 stars if....
by Zaruhy on 2019/08/11 07:45
I could enlarge the preview more. It’s too small to see detail properly. Other than that, I really like this game.
Paid for upgrade

Still getting ads after paying for upgrade.
a question for the devs!!
by dramaticchipmunks on 2019/08/10 02:39
just a question, if i upgrade do i get one custom puzzle or unlimited custom puzzles?
Best App Ever
by Grandkitties GMa on 2019/08/10 02:23
Best app ever when you need a stress-reliever that allows you to make choices based on your interests (beach puzzles, adorable cats and puppies, mountains, well you get my idea)! Good entertainment for waiting rooms — not noisy and easy to stop at any point.
Coin purchases
by Dj_awsome_91 on 2019/08/10 00:08
Can you actually buy anything with the coins?? I’ve looked and looked and so far nothing. I like the game just wish I could use the coins for something.

Pieces won’t move!
by Smart!mart! on 2019/08/09 05:22
Puzzle pieces too difficult to slide around and I end up moving the background too often. Not fun!
Unhappy with changes
by msfick on 2019/08/08 14:23
I have used the app for years. I purchased the ad free version from the start. Loved the app. Then a change was made and my app started giving me ads. They fixed it. This latest change didn’t allow me to load new puzzles. They fixed that, now it wants more money for me to work the more complex versions. I’m done!
My new obsession
by Morazzle on 2019/08/08 13:24
Great in every way! Update: Still one of the best apps! You can make the visually stunning puzzles easy or hard with many variations. You can pick the number of pieces, whether or not rotation of the pieces is done, and there are so many puzzle packs, you will find something that interests you. There is one free puzzle a day that will keep you occupied even without buying additional packs of puzzles - which are priced very reasonably with many sales. No monthly fee! It works without cellular surface or WiFi for the puzzles you have already opened once. Absolutely no reason not to get this!
Money
by 🥐🍕😻girl yo Roxy on 2019/08/08 01:53
Seriously 😒 all of the game is money money money I thought it was all free but nooooo it wasn’t it also said I had enough coins to buy a puzzle but there was none with 100 I don’t like it but I do recommend it thanks and byeeee!!

Great Game
by Caisonel on 2019/08/07 20:35
This puzzle game if superb. It has a variety of FREE puzzles—including a new one every day. If you choose you may select theme based bundles either at a vary low cost or using earned by solving puzzles. You control the puzzle rewards you earn by selecting the difficulty level for each puzzle you play. Really fun and as challenging as you like.
Mostly good
by butterflybear on 2019/08/07 15:46
I think I only have 2 negative issues with this app. Touching and moving pieces is murky sometimes. I touch a piece and it grabs the next one, even if I know I'm touching the one I want. The app also likes to place pieces beyond the edge of the table, making them almost impossible to grab. My only other issue is more a good thing. Currently it will not let me download anything. So I cannot buy from the store, nor can I download from the cloud, even though I am connected, it says I am not.
Another update failure
by Jujubee99 on 2019/08/07 10:37
Latest update of 8/6/2019 has more troubles than things that may have been fixed. Tap the new daily puzzle and get a black screen on your iPad.
Something strange going on
by cross and puzzled on 2019/08/07 09:26
While playing the game the screen will change to a black screen that looks like a camera program. It never done this before and I have been playing this for years I don’t what’s going on but I will stop playing it until it’s corrected It is not the make your own puzzle camera option as this happens during play of the puzzle of the day
Dissatisfied
by Freidrich Johansen on 2019/08/07 01:31
Down loaded game. Bought some puzzles. App locked up. Now what?
Ads not suitable for kids
by K-t47 on 2019/08/06 17:02
They have started showing pornographic ads. DON’T let your kids play this.
Mind Settling
by Curlytoprr on 2019/08/06 11:22
I have a chronic illness and stay in the house most days. To keep my mind off of it, I play on the iPad. My most enjoyable times are when I do your puzzles. I look forward to seeing the free puzzle every day! I have purchased many and find your prices and selections are great. I do as many as 3 or 4 each day. The best part is while I’m working them, my mind is free from worry. Keep em coming!
I know the developers are trying to fix the bugs but
by priscillathequeen on 2019/08/06 07:59
Edited 8-5 Bugs might finally be fixed now. Change rating to 5 stars again. Edited 5-24 Getting extremely frustrated. After the latest update each puzzle has pieces that won't rotate. New puzzle or in-progress ones, all have the same problem so I can never finish any puzzle, wasting my time trying to earn points. When will it be fixed? Original review: The last update today seems to make it worse. I tried to work on an unfinished puzzle & the app is now completely frozen. Can't even get to the help menu to contact them. Please try to fix again.
What happened to this app?
by freeride1 on 2019/08/06 02:44
I’ve had this app and usually love it but lately my purchases do not show up after I paying for a pack. I’ve tried reaching out to customer service but no luck. Do yourself a favorite and don’t bother with this one.
Worked puzzles disappear
by lostfeathers on 2019/08/05 22:19
Nice app, fun puzzles. However, after working puzzles they reappear as “in progress,” and then you try to open the puzzle and it completely resets like it was never worked. Most annoying. Have contact MobilityWare several times about this problem, no response, no fix. Pick another puzzle app until this is resolved, otherwise you will become frustrated with the app deleting your puzzle work.
Jigsaw puzzle
by granny's usable on 2019/08/05 04:07
What happened to the piggy contest. I thought I had one more day. I only completed the first level - I think. It all disappeared so fast I couldn’t get my bearings. I won puzzles from the 80’s and thought that was the first level of the piggy contest. When I finished one more puzzle - only for the piggy contest- I didn’t get the 10 pink coins and the contest was no where to be found. On the contest it had said to come back and collect my prizes. Back to where? Collect what prizes?
Good app but ads are too long
by lyndsey wiwuebfb on 2019/08/05 02:15
Free puzzles are great but the ads before them are a minute long. I don’t think any other apps wait that long and the experience would be a lot smoother if they were shorter

Really you don’t need to buy a single puzzle. I’ve bought around 40 but I generally do the daily one. Big Bang for the buck.

I've had this game for several years. Very relaxing - until NOW!! I can't open the app because an image of an I completed puzzle (which was completed) keeps popping up and keeps the app from properly loading. Please fix this! I need my daily puzzle fix!
Lost pieces
by Shaman882 on 2019/08/04 15:15
I have 2 puzzles in the last month that the pieces disappear when you touch them. This only happens after I have spent hours on these puzzles with just 10 or 15 pieces to go. I emailed support and there is no response. Fix this and I will continue to spend money on this game. I have deleted it until I get a response.
DRAINS BATTERY
by RamCat75 on 2019/08/04 12:38
I enjoy playing this in my iPad. It’s too difficult to player on my phone screen. Too small to see and constantly scrolling to find & move pieces. My biggest complaint is that if I’m not plugged in to power, my battery drops from 100% to about 50% in the 10-15 minutes to play 1 puzzle. No other apps or games cause this kind of battery drain. As long as I’m at home plugged in, I love it.
Getting worse!
by Muni9 on 2019/08/04 06:06
The useable screen keeps getting smaller & smaller because of all the ads. It now is very difficult to work with inasmuch as tiles hide behind the ad bar. This doesn’t convince me to fork over the money for a paid version. Instead, it’s going to force me to delete the app - after many years of enjoyment!
What happened?
by Eldora14 on 2019/08/04 03:32
UPDATE: WHERE HAVE ALL MY PUZZLES GONE? I had SO many completed and stored in a “Gallery;” I was more than halfway done with another; and I had saved so many for future solving. AND puzzles I’ve completed are sitting their appearing unsolved. WHAT DID YOU DO? Since this update all my work is GONE! Changing stars from 3 to 1. So disappointed. Here’s my original review: For the past 2 days the pieces have been sluggish when dragged. Now, I can’t even get the game to open. I updated, deleted and reinstalled and I still can’t get it to play. Before this it used to be a lot of fun. The puzzles are challenging (or not, you determine the level), and I love that every day is a new free puzzle to add to your collection. So, what happened? PLEASE get it fixed ASAP so I can change 3 stars to 5.

I love jigsaw puzzles so when I found this one I was really excited by all the different puzzles there are. Right now though I’m not real happy because the objectives are not working. I like to challenge myself and those objectives helped.

I purchased Underwater Paradise today...it still hasn’t uploaded! When I purchase a puzzle pack it has always uploaded right away. What’s going on? Update... I had to delete the app and download it again, the puzzle packs are all there
Continuing to love this game!
by 35madscientist on 2019/08/03 21:14
Update with my previous review after: Just wanted to say thanks for the piggy thing, which allowed me to get 100 coins? And a free 10-piece puzzle! It said that a light bulb would show which puzzles would give the most points, but I never saw one. So I just did puzzles that gave the most points and showed a good amount of the piggy points! Thanks for giving it several days, too! Recently, I’ve become really sick and haven’t been able to do as many puzzles as I’d like. My arm is limited also because of a PICC line, but I’m still doing them when I can.Thanks again! I’m thankful for the free daily puzzles, plus the recent free puzzle pack! I don’t mind that it wasn’t 30 or 20 of them—I appreciate it and love the colorful different puzzles in the pack! I have been trying to do more pieces even in the daily puzzles, to see if I can! I do have a lot of packs, which I guess is why I have to re-download them. But I don’t do one pack at a time. It just depends on my mood or what I want to challenge myself to do; I just never know! And I like to look at the sales to see if I might want to buy something on sale. I buy regular priced ones, too. Often! Just wondering…why do some packs have crowns on them now? I noticed it after a recent update. Curious! :) I hope things keep working and I’ll keep purchasing and playing!
Great puzzle game
by Gizmo nut on 2019/08/03 19:52
I rated this 4 stars because you didn't list exactly what/how things were changed. I had to search help to find out how you changed "choose amount of pieces". I have no idea what else you changed because you just said you fixed bugs. But that isn't the case. It made playing very frustrating.

by lsak22 on 2019/08/03 14:47
Why did the puzzle change from 225 pieces to 75 ? How do I get it back to 225 pieces?

Love the app. I was having issues of the app crashing. That has now stopped happening. Do the puzzles daily.
Paid version loaded with ads
by Tyrien on 2019/08/03 08:53
Every time I open the app I’m hit over the head by multiple ads promising deals and random nonsense. Ads in premium versions of apps shouldn’t exist.
Could be so much better
by Elliern on 2019/08/03 01:11
So frustrating!! Sometimes the pieces won’t move at all. Just have to keep trying over and over. But really frustrating is that most of the time the entire board moves when wanting to move just one piece. If those problems were fixed it would be an enjoyable game. Really wish I could rate it higher.
A huge step backwards
by Rebelizdav on 2019/08/02 19:51
I have played this puzzle game for several years now. During that time, with every “update”, it has gotten more and more intrusive with their sales notices. I actually have bought quite a few of their picture packs even though they mostly consist of royalty free photos found easily on the net. I spend quite a bit of time in places where there is not access to a WiFi connection. However with this last “update”, you now have to be online to play the puzzles which you already own and have downloaded to your device. That along with forcing ad content down your throat which you have to read to dismiss it is the last straw for me. They have lost me as a long time customer.
Amazing app- just one issue
by shleebee16 on 2019/08/02 18:49
I love this app, go on everyday for my daily puzzle, and use it a lot when I’m on the subway. The only ONLY thing that could be better is a tool option for moving multiple pieces at once. Moving my pieces to the side one at a time is driving me crazy
More space

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

Absolutely love the puzzles and the choices and the fact that you can change the amount of pieces to do the puzzle. Great idea to have a different puzzle every day. Great idea that I can open a new puzzle in the Christmas pack every day. Very addictive. Sometimes the pieces are very slow to move and that get me frustratedly. Then it disconnects and you have to resign on again. The new improvement of the piece lighting up when in place is great. Give it a 5 star rating May6,2019 I don’t know what happened it is going down hill. They finally fixed board freezing then had problem for several days where daily puzzle didn’t come up. Today a new problem when I down loaded new puzzle of day and opened it I had a black background, board was frozen and no borders for puzzle. When I went to saved puzzles same thing. Tired to change background color and there was no colors to choose from- blank screen. Game freezing again. Game going down hill. To many problems one right after another. Never was like that before. Might delete game. No longer 5 star game, maybe 2 star. May6th. I must say the puzzle team addressed today’s problem promptly and got the game up and running at 100%. Well done
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 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.
Puzzled....
by meeshbrand on 2017/09/21 06:02
In the beginning I was happy with the app... then, I attempted to purchase the add on that would have enabled me to use my own photos as puzzles... it was also supposed to unlock all of the features associated with this app.... Unfortunately, it did NONE of these things... what it DID DO, however, was to take the money out of my account for it.... I attempted to make this same purchase again, some months later, at its relentless prompts.... again, it did not unlock any features... this time, however, I removed the credit card number that it was going to take the money from... The next time I attempted to download a FREE app, it refused to let me do it, as it said I owed money... even though I never received anything, the first time, & they DID get their $, it held my phone ransom, & wouldn't let me do anything until I put that credit card back in... & of course, the minute I did... it took, for a second time, money for something I never received.... I attempted to try & reach someone, which I never was able to get a call back from... now, I have no add one, yet I'm now receiving more & more adverts... which was SUPPOSED to be one of the things that I was supposed to get as part of the package I've now paid for TWICE.... the AD FREE app.... I'm receiving at least 5~6 ads with each & every puzzle I attempt to complete.... :(
Better than average
by Newest iPad on 2018/04/08 00:27
This is a fairly good game. To be honest, I am using the free version, and noticed some glitches at the start - specifically, it slows down at times. I have bought 3 puzzle packs and the puzzle feels slower than ever. There are pieces that seem to "stick" when you try to choose or move them, so my timing to completion is slowed. Overall, I enjoy the puzzles (otherwise I wouldn't have purchased packs) but they are increasingly hampered and slowed. So I will not continue to buy packs until the programmer unsticks the pieces and makes it so that each piece moves readily and smoothly, even if ads are scrolling across the bottom. Update: 4/7/18: Recent puzzle update helped in that I no longer have to listen to ad jingles while playing. (I prefer my own music in the background). However, pieces still get stuck; the whole puzzle stops intermittently - I have to completely close down and re-open, which wastes a lot of time. I had purchased several packs but won't buy more: I noticed a trend in the puzzles they offer that I feel are PREJUDICED. They only have puzzles of certain parts of the world; for ex., even when showing puzzles of the Mediterranean areas, only Greece, Italy, France were shown. In fact there are many Western European photos and Far East (China) while other countries are ignored. When they start offering more global choices, I may consider buying more packs.
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!
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.
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.

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.
To share is to be an add
by Woolvic on 2018/03/31 04:30
I love jigsaw puzzles. And digital puzzles take up no table space, unless my iPad is on the table. I have had this puzzle app for 5 years. I am completely happy with the puzzles and solving them. BUT ... SHARING THEM HAS CHANGED! I strongly dislike the way the completed puzzle picture is now changed, shrunk, and surrounded by other stuff to make an ad out of it. When I share my completed puzzles on Facebook, I want to show the picture of the completed puzzle as it existed when I completed it. This is how it used to be shared. The app logo was in the lower corner. That should be enough. Friends who asked were told about the app. I was apparent with the app logo. Now it’s a link that shows a tiny picture of the puzzle. Oh, in fact even that is nor always the case. I recently posted a completed puzzle only to find out that the picture I shared was not the picture displayed. What crap! I have decreased my satisfaction rate from 5 to 3 stars all because of the change in sharing. I want the old way back. I’m the one solving the puzzle. I want to share the results of my effort as it is depicted when I complete the picture, full size with puzzle lines. Logo & link info should NOT overpower the picture. Or find another way to promote your app.
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!
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!
My favorite puzzle game
by BWB7 on 2017/12/17 07:15
I have had this game for some time now. It is my favorite puzzle game of all time. Just when I think it can not get better, they surprise me with an update that does enhance its quality even more. I enjoy how there are a plethora of puzzle pictures. Literally there is a option available for all tastes. I love how you can continue to play this game for free indefinitely as there is a free puzzle every day as well as free puzzle packs to play. On top of that there is a place where you can view puzzle packs for a price. The puzzle packs are very inexpensive and also offer a wide variety of design choices. Being able to pick how many pieces you want each of your puzzle to be, having the choice to rotate the pieces, being able to pick your background playing tabletop design, and so many other tactical options makes this application superior to the others. Thank you to the makers of this application for creating such a quality product that allows users to continue to play for free as long as they want or be able to pick packages at reasonable prices if desired.
Good fun gone bad Update
by TXChick512 on 2018/02/16 01:22
Mobilityware let me know that to reduce the data storage that this app uses, delete your completed puzzles. I could not find this at first, but the Completed Puzzles icon is in My Gallery located at the bottom of the home page. They also say you can delete the Trophy room, but I can't find that room on my iPad. It does not appear that they have plans to stop the advertising pop ups. So, I raise my rating to 4 stars. This is a great game. I love puzzles, but Mobilityware has destroyed this app. Or maybe Critical Hit did when they sold out. Either way, I strongly suggest you PLAY the FREE version. DO NOT PURCHASE this app, because you will still get advertising that interrupts your play, but worse than that, they don't control the cache that takes up all your data storage space. Their only solution is to delete all that you have purchased. I haven't purchased so many puzzles that it should be taking 8.4 GB (and growing every day I play) of my data storage. Beware! They should add a feature that removes cache when you reboot! Their only solution is to delete everything I've purchased. Very sad. Does anyone have a suggestion that they can't or won't provide?
Changes in your puzzles
by D.S. in Ohio on 2018/04/21 21:23
I have enjoyed doing puzzles on theJigsaw Puzzle app and purchased quite a few packs in the last two years since I got my I pad. But I do not like their recent changes. It was nice after finishing a puzzle to have the satisfaction of seeing the puzzle large for as long as I chose to look at my finished work. Now they flash it large for a second or two and then it goes small. I feel as though I barely get to focus in on my finished work in the large format! I also liked seeing the name of the puzzle after finishing it but have noticed that is not always there now. I am disappointed in their changes. I received a response from the makers of Jigsaw Puzzle within 48 hours of my above review. They were very courteous and explained I can see my finished puzzles in a large format and view them for as long as I wish under “completed puzzles” at the Jigsaw Puzzle site I use. Thank you for that information. I checked it and it does work just as you said! I am pleased. I upgrade my evaluation to 5 stars now! I really enjoy your puzzles!🙂. Thank you.
Coins?!
by PugPuzzler on 2019/04/29 17:32
I think that they charge way too much for the puzzles tbh. There are free ones, but 3,990 coins for a puzzle pack? It would be different if you got more coins for completing a puzzle, but the most you can get is 36 coins for completing a 400 piece puzzle. You’d have to do an awful lot of puzzles just to be able to buy a puzzle pack. You get lots of puzzles in the packs, but maybe dial it down some! I get that they want people to buy coins, but there are plenty of people who can’t. I think that if they want to do better, I’d say to at least give more coins for the puzzles we complete. They have plenty of sales which is good, but they still range anywhere from 900 to 2,000 coins. Maybe add an option where you can just buy a single puzzle with coins? Above that, it’s an amazing game. For a while it wouldn’t let me do the daily free puzzle, but they fixed it. I like how it times you, to. I’m always trying to better my puzzle skills 😂. There’s no time limit, it just sees how long it takes you to complete it. I like that though. But yeah, make some changes with the coins, and you’ll get the fifth star ⭐️. But for now, ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ from me.
My Favorite App
by Elaine0400 on 2019/06/12 21:19
Jigsaw Puzzle is great for all ages. I wouldn’t change one thing. I have made 427 puzzles from August 4, 2017 to June 12, 2019. A free puzzle is offered every day. The selection of puzzle packages are endless and the prices are very low. You can pick how many pieces you want each puzzle divided into. My favorite is 121 pieces. You can start each puzzle with just the outside edges, by touching the little picture of a corner piece, then scatter them. All the other puzzle pieces will come automatically. The puzzle pieces are in the correct angle unless you want to have to turn them. Learn what all the little choices do when learning to do your first puzzle. Every puzzle you finish is saved so you can look at them anytime. Touch the little picture of the lock when you are moving the puzzle pieces to where they go. Then the puzzle will not move as you scoot each piece to where it goes. Jigsaw Puzzle is very relaxing. If you don’t finish the one you’re working on it will be saved until you are ready to work on it again.
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.
Reliving my youth
by IODICE1341 on 2019/05/03 15:13
I just love this app! I have always loved doing puzzles from when I was a child. This app gives you one free puzzle each day or you can search the puzzle library for other free ones or many you can purchase. I complete one puzzle each day and whenever I have a free 10 minutes I work on my puzzle. Great fun! Try it....you will love it!! Still loving this app. I really love the puzzles with the bright colors. They are fun to do and the finished products are brilliant. I do at least one puzzle each day and it is very calming compared to the other games that drive me crazy. I really like the feature where you can resize the puzzle pieces. You can have 8 pieces or 300 pieces. Good for all ages!! Enjoy. I am adding a new comment today. I still love this app, however I got a new iPad recently and there was no way to retrieve my completed puzzles or my winning coins. I was able to retrieve my purchased puzzles but I am starting from scratch as far as completion goes. I am doing the same puzzles over again and I had to start from no coins when on my old iPad I had over 2000 coins. There must be a way to correct this flaw.
Obnoxious Ads & Glitchy Playboard
by Inbodied on 2018/11/01 23:55
This is an update to my earlier review. In addition to the issues below, this latest update dropped me as a premium user and I was assaulted with obnoxious ads that I had to wait for until I could start playing my puzzle. After contacting support and asking why I was suddenly being inundated with ads after being ad free for several years, they sent me instructions about resigning in with my Apple ID. When that didn’t work, they insisted I prove to them that I had upgraded to the ad free version. Since I upgraded in 2013, that was no small feat. It took an hour of my day. I’m wondering how many others were purged and will pay to upgrade again rather than spend the time to find a receipt. Earlier review: After not playing for a while I'm back and even more disappointed. The puzzle pieces stick to the edge of the screen and no amount of coaxing will move them. Very frustrating. I love working jigsaw puzzles and this app was the best one I found when I first started playing. It appears to be getting glitchier with every update. The puzzle freezes and the pieces won't move for several seconds. I often have to close the app and relaunch. I'm also frustrated with the sensitivity of the touch screen. I go to move a piece and the puzzle moves instead.
No Customer Support
by eelissat on 2019/06/27 14:49
UPDATE: This issue has finally been resolved and I have added back stars for how much I love this app! I have been using and loving this app for a few months now. I love puzzles, and this is app is the most realistic I have found to working an actual puzzle. Because of this, I decided I was willing to spend some money to buy more puzzles, and I NEVER spend money on in-app purchases. Ever. But this time I did, and that’s where things went wrong. My purchase did not download. I have been charged, but received no product. I followed the steps on the FAQ page and still have not been able to acquire what I paid for (or my money back). I reached out twice in two different places to customer support asking for help. All I’ve been given is the same instructions that were already on the FAQ page that I had already followed and that did not work for me. I have not been able to get a response from anyone about my purchase. I am feeling frustrated and ignored, and I am kicking myself for breaking my no in-app purchase rule. All I can say is, I am so glad I did not spend a ton of money!
Jigsaw puzzle game, new changes
by chadskate on 2019/03/16 21:51
I love my puzzles, and have worked hundreds of them. The new changes concern me though. The pieces are very hard to move, the scatter function puts pieces beyond the edge of the game board, the picture after the puzzle has been solved is so small it does not read well, let alone the 3 packs on the bottom of the completed puzzle. I am very disappointed in this ‘update’. Please fix these problems. Also, the whole game board floats around if you try to move it just a little, both vertically and side to side. It is very unstable. What made you think these ‘updates’ were what was needed? I do love my puzzles. I own 30 puzzle packs, and work 4-5 puzzles every day. I wish you would get away from all those kitschy paintings you’ve been trying to sell lately. I am more interested in photos. The kitschy paintings are too sentimental, too other time, other world, lets go back to the 50 s. I want puzzle packs that are based in reality, not the milquetoast of sentimental drivel.
Love it but it’s glitchy
by AEQ30 on 2018/10/31 02:53
I really love this app and use it almost everyday to pass time during a break between meetings or unwind before bed. I have two issues though that drive nuts. The first issue is that sometimes after choosing a new puzzle and the tile size, an ad will run (which is fine no big deal) however once the ad finishes, it takes me back to the same set up screen. From this screen the only thing I’m able to do is X out and then start all over. After I choose the tile size again and watch another ad, I’m then taken to the puzzle. The second (and far more annoying) issue is that sometimes I’ll be doing a puzzle and all of a sudden I’ll be taken to the App Store. I try to switch back to the puzzle but once selected, I’m again taken back to the App Store. The only way to kill this irritating cycle is to close the app then close the App Store and then relaunch Jigsaw. I’m not sure if it only happens on the iPhone X or what the issue is, but it’s wicked annoying. Lastly, and this is just a request not a complaint, I would love a tile option larger than 400 on the iPhone.
Updates unsatisfactory.
by labrys35 on 2019/03/25 00:35
I have had this app for years and I have used it a lot. I love it. Just now, though, I am frustrated with the updates I just loaded. The “scatter” function is sending several pieces so far to the edge that it is difficult to grab them to move them without closing the window in error or pulling up the tool bar. Also, the “click” that happens when a piece is locked in place is louder - may be thought to be clearer - but it annoys me. I will continue playing as I love being able to do the puzzles with no lost pieces and no interference from my cats. Some of the features I like are being able to separate out the edge pieces, scattering pieces out of the center of the desktop, and having a free puzzle offered every day. I like the addition of the coins so that I may earn free puzzle packs. One thing that is a misconnect right now is that if I have done a puzzle which later is in a puzzle pack I download, the app does not recognize that it has been done by me, so I would need to do it again in order to complete the pack. But that is a minor irritation that I will live with.
updated to three stars
by Norm M on 2019/01/01 13:57
I enjoy doing jigsaw puzzles (find it a relaxing pastime) but am rating it 3 (up from two) because There are many features that I like, but the two things I dislike are: When using scatter feature, pieces often scatter to edges of background. The background and puzzle don’t lock, so playing area often gets larger “by accident”, so have to re-adjust puzzle size several times...The lock feature is on but (perhaps this is for pieces) I like the feature of making image & table larger/smaller, but...Also, I requested common or botanical names be used to ID flora, (I use developers puzzles, not my own, so I can learn) the developer(s) get free puzzles from the web & uses web descriptions (eg: Two Yellow Flowers). I think this is laziness. After my complaint, My husband rec’d an email saying this would be addressed. It was ignored. Then he rec’d an email asking to increase his (my) rating. Please don’t send toyuniverses anymore emails. (I use my husband’s Apple ID in App Store). Also, in “Best of Europe II” set, if you use the edge option, the puzzle becomes B&W (red color disappears) in “Red Telephone Booths in Scotland”., a bug Carol C. aka WoofWoof

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... 😇
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.
Great App!
by IPTFAN on 2018/11/15 02:57
I have had this app for quite a while now and really enjoy it. I like that you can make the puzzles more difficult by selecting the piece rotation before you build your puzzle but I wish this would work in reverse after you have already started a puzzle. I took my own photo, an upgrade that allows for unlimited puzzles which is great, however the picture I chose is very difficult, I have invested hours and hours trying to complete it, and I am getting very frustrated. If I could shut off the piece rotation I would be more likely to try to finish the puzzle. As things are now, I never will. Puzzles available for purchase are reasonably priced and there is a lot of variety. The upgrade to take my own pictures was too. World of Color collections are great! Some collections have too few puzzles in them, I usually download only those with more puzzles. A recent upgrade making it easy to find the edge pieces is wonderful! The background option is really nice too, so you can change backgrounds based on the colors in the puzzle for contrast. However, I find I use mostly a few select backgrounds as they work well with most puzzles. Another thing I would like to see is to be able to move "piles." When I sort based on matching pieces it would be great if I could move a whole pile to one side of the board before laying them out rather than having to move each piece one at a time. Thanks for a relaxing, enjoyable puzzle app with many choices available!
Undo the “fixes”
by Js Daughter on 2019/03/16 14:55
I’ve had this app for over a year and play it a lot. Love the puzzles and variety of pictures. I like the most difficult 400 piece puzzle... challenging but fun! For me, this was a 4-5 star app but now it’s a 2 and that’s generous! A few days ago when I opened this app, there was a notice that a few “upgrades” had been done along with a few “fixes”. Well whatever these upgrades and fixes were, they need to be UNDONE! This has become the most irritating game I have. The pieces are very difficult to move now. If you don’t touch them exactly right (not sure how that is because it seems to change), your entire picture moves as if that piece had been locked into place. And it’s now very difficult to actually move the piece into the correct place and have it lock in. This so-called fix has made it so frustrating it’s not enjoyable anymore. I spend way too much time moving the entire puzzle back to the center of the screen because it’s been pulled over when I’ve tried to move one piece...which happens with almost every piece I try to move. If this can’t be fixed or undone, I’ll have to give up the app. Too bad...it was one of my favorites.
Bad update
by Pilitinamiao on 2019/07/14 15:50
Edit Summer 2019: I followed the recommendation to update the iPad operating software and it helped some but still overheats the iPad. I found a solution by accident while traveling, though. If I put it in airplane mode while playing the puzzle, it runs smoothly and doesn’t overheat. So I am increasing the score from 3 to 4 stars. The spring 2019 update has made the game unplayable on my iPad mini 2. It is now slow and jerky, overheats my device, and crashes occasionally. Whatever updates were made are too processor intensive. The two I noticed are: improving the rotation point of the piece, and improving the scatter function to reduce overlap. Both are great ideas, but not if I can no longer play. It’s a shame because I did like the game. There is a free daily puzzle. You can cut the puzzle into between 4 and 1000 pieces. You can opt to have piece rotation on or off. The puzzle functions are easy and natural. You can earn points by completing puzzles, which can be spent on new puzzle packs. I usually did 400 piece puzzles with rotation on, to maximize the points earned.
Downloaded Puzzles not opening up
by elisexclusive on 2019/05/09 15:51
l am super disappointed. Everyone knows how long it takes to get 4,000 coins to be able to finally download puzzles you are anxious to play if you don’t purchase them. l finally got over 4,000 + coins & ended up downloading Two Puzzle Packs that were on sale World of Color V, and “Colorful Cocktails.” The World of color V pack downloaded just fine to my puzzles and l am able to play it. However, l downloaded the “Colorful Cocktail,” puzzle pack and it says its downloaded and (Tap to open to play) but it will not open. l have tried several times now. Even by shutting down the app entirely and re-opening it and it still will not open but says it is downloaded to my puzzles. I am super irritated that l just spent an extra 1,990 coins on this Colorful Cocktail puzzle pack that refuses to open!! This is the first time this has happened to me, but it’s ridiculous that l cannot open the puzzle pack that l just spent pretty much the rest of my coins on! Now what am l supposed to do if l can’t trust all puzzle packs to actually download to my puzzles correctly; where they may not open up when spending my coins on them????! My rating because of that just dropped drastically...
Fun but... ( I formally remove "but...")
by PWhitJr on 2017/12/27 09:44
I enjoy working the puzzles. It sparks my creativity. Unfortunately, when finished, I hate to discard them. This stems from my experience in Architecture class where I wanted to keep my project while everyone else enjoyed destroying theirs. Update: I discovered the page that shows all the puzzles I have completed, so I get to keep them after all. I have a friend of Polish descent, so I send him the ones of Poland that I complete. The only problem I have is I have to write down the location pictured before I work the puzzle. 2nd update: I also work another puzzle that has the pieces at the side to scroll through. Those pieces are too small to see the detail. I prefer this setup with space to arrange most if not all of the pieces on the workspace to the sides. Sometimes, after finishing the border, I put together groups until they can connect to the border. All the pieces remain the same size regardless of their location. The flashing is not necessary but it confirms proper location.
Terrible User-Interface
by CAD Programmer on 2019/04/12 13:54
This app drives me nuts with its awful detection of where I’m touching the screen. It is CONSTANTLY grabbing the wrong pieces, selecting pieces far away from where my finger is actually touching the screen. It also gets “stuck” in a pan mode (scrolling the puzzle instead of moving a piece) which is absolutely obnoxious! Very frustrating user-interface!! There is a LOT of lag caused by a constantly updating ad banner, and the app is a MAJOR battery hog draining your device down to zero in less time than it takes to complete a 400-piece puzzle (about 25 minutes for me). And forget about temporarily switching to a different app or taking a call - the app crashes whenever it loses focus. Seriously. (And this is AFTER the “bug fixes” update!) Also, ever since the last “update”, the app is HORRENDOUSLY SLOW, all graphics reduced in size, and Objectives is always “not available”. It seems like just blunder after blunder with this software. (Maybe coded by ex-Apple employees?) There are WAY too many ads, freeze-ups, and crashes to rate anything higher than one star. If the performance issues aren’t resolved within 30 days (plenty of time for competent programmers) I will be deleting the app. Update: Deleted the app - it is AWFUL!!
Pretty Good
by LeoFlash on 2017/12/29 08:18
Overall, this app is like having a regular, old-fashioned picture puzzle anywhere you go. But sometimes, it’s hard to get pieces to move - it may take several tries to pick up a piece to move it. And trying to zoom sometimes moves pieces instead, as also can happen while trying to scroll while zoomed in. Or the wrong piece will get grabbed occasionally. But it’s nice to be able to toggle between number of pieces in a puzzle; it’s your choice as to how difficult a puzzle is to put back together. And the option to maintain the piece orientation is nice - being on a smartphone means a small screen, and it can take a lot of time just to sort pieces or scroll-drag-scroll-drag a piece while zoomed in, so smaller/more pieces means extra effort and time. For such things, it would be nice to be able to “hold” a piece while you move it from one side of the puzzle to the other while zoomed in. Also nice to have would be a draggable tray to gather a type/color/whatever pieces in. It’s still hard to stop work on a puzzle once you start, tho!
Great, but needs a couple more fixes...
by Puzzler80202 on 2018/01/07 04:44
I really enjoy this app, and spend quality time doing the puzzles. Since the number of pieces was increased (which I really liked) there needs to be a way to select more in-between options in the higher counts. Right now, it makes huge jumps in the count, such as from from 400 to 625. I have done a couple of the 625 and 900, but I would really like more choices in these ranges. I chose a 900 count for a picture with great detail, and got really frustrated, it was just too much. Would love to have counts for 450, 500, 550, 600, etc going up to your max. Also the hint button is a very nice improvement, but it would be better if it just put the piece into the puzzle, and not have the two step process. Also would like a function in which if you hold down the hint button, it places pieces sequentially, and is easy to control, like on another PC jigsaw puzzle program I have. This way, when I regret choosing a 900 piece puzzle, I can speed up the hints! Thank you for improving the app and listening to my suggestions.

I have been working ur puzzles for four years. Love them. But today us the first time I have had the request to buy free ads and the first time I have had to out up with ads. Just wondering what the deal us ???? Why after 4 years am I getting thus stuff. Not a happy camper !!! Oct 28 I went ahead and bought the 4.99 package deal that said I would have 3 groups of puzzles and no ads. But now all my puzzle that I had out there , that I had already bought, have all disappeared and all I have now is the three that came with the buying of the so called freeing of the ads. Where did my puzzles go. What is going on. Loved doing my puzzles but am not happy that the ones I already purchased and have not worked r gone. Also the area that tells u if u have tried different size puzzles has all disappeared also. Not happy. I hate to have to quit working the puzzles but I want my puzzles back that I have already spent money on. Would appreciate some kind of answer ,
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.
Back to the best!

***I’m updating my review. The makers of the game quickly responded to the complaints about an update. They did another update today and fixed the problems. Thanks for listening!!! I’m so happy!! This really is the best puzzle game. I’ve played them all. I kept coming back to this one. You get a free puzzle daily. I love the puzzle pack choices, the layout, and functionality. If you love jigsaw puzzles, this is the app to get! I’m so not loving the latest update. I find myself getting super frustrated and just having to take a break. The fluidity of moving the puzzle pieces has changed. The pieces are hard to grab and move to the right place. I try to grab a piece and the board moves around. This app has gone from a relaxing, enjoyable one to one that raises my blood pressure. Why fix something if it wasn’t broken? I just purchased several packs a couple of weeks ago. Bummer! Please consider changes things back. 🙏🏻 Before the update, I would’ve given 5 stars.
Fun App

I like this puzzle app better than others I've tried. You can do your border first; then bring in the other pieces (if that's the way you work). Rather than having the pieces in a column on the side that you have to scroll through, you can organize them around your "board". I had been doing these puzzles for months and months and achieved almost all the trophies and the app just quit. I recently reinstalled it and had to start again. Beautiful pictures! Oct., 2017- this newest version is great. It scatters your pieces in a much more defined area. You can actually get all the pieces for the 1,000+ piece puzzle on the screen at one time. At this time I don't know if my iPad is slowing things down or if it's the app, but now I have to click the app repeatedly to try to open it. It's getting very frustrating. The pictures are lovely-beautiful colors, lovely landscapes, fabulous art work. The app counts the time that it takes you to complete the puzzle.
If it ain’t broke....
by @45fgb on 2017/12/14 23:34
I reviewed before and gave 5 stars, after trying several puzzle apps, I decided this was the best. Eventually I bought the enhanced version, mostly to get rid of the flashing ads, but the other features were good as well, especially background options. Anyway I was happily puzzling away, probably more than I should, until the last update which scatters the pieces more evenly. Great idea, but...a bunch of them end up under the control bar, and have to be moved out. That’s okay I guess, I usually just do it right away as I begin to sort. What’s been lost here is the ability to rescatter as I am working, without losing the sorting, because pieces just fly all over and back out to the edges instead of just clearing the frame and staying in relatively the same order that they were. Anyway, I just never use that feature after the first scatter unless I have almost everything nailed down. I hope I have described the problem clearly and that there may be a way to fix it, or return to the previous method.

Updated it yesterday and now it’s all glitchy and slow, what the heck!
Still love this app 4 years later, but...

Bugs fixed! Great puzzle app!
Great app
by Gmr62441 on 2019/08/20 22:07
Love this app! Use it daily, very relaxing. My only complaint is it seems to freeze up more often and nothing will move for a few seconds and then it starts up again. Otherwise a wonderful way to relax. Especially after the last update it freezes up and the “scatter” doesn’t work as well as before this last update. Update August 20, 2019. Thevfrezing up just seems to be worse all the time! Please fix!
Update problems

After completing a puzzle I don’t receive the 10 coins?
Have to enter email password to play
by ToniaCW1978 on 2019/08/19 13:26
I really wish your developers would stop messing around something that worked just fine. Now we have to enter our email password?? Why? The two shouldn’t need to be connected.
Great puzzles!
by Rdst148 on 2019/08/18 17:50
I would pay extra to have an option to automatically form edges!

This game is perfect for me! Exactly what I like for a puzzle game. Very sad I can only get it on Apple - I have a dell tablet I wish I could play it on. Love the free puzzle a day option and a way to get credit to purchase more.
Best jigsaw puzzle app
by Sally Salal on 2019/08/17 23:21
I have played this app on my iPad 2 and now I play it on my new 6th generation iPad. It has great selections of puzzles and great prices on the in app purchases. Beautiful pictures, wide varieties of subjects, and keeps the puzzles you have in progress. Love the coins for each puzzle played to purchase more puzzle packs and the free puzzle packs. Thank you for hours of enjoyment!

I have not bought any new puzzles in a few months, yet now, in the last couple months, it's saying I'm at max storage on my iPad,,,,,,,,app takes forever to open,,,,,,,sometimes not at all,,,,,I've gone through and deleted old puzzles - problem remains,,,,,,,,have to reboot iPad every time in order for it to work',,,,,,,,not pleased
When it’s good, it’s very, very good but when it’s bad...
by Sweet Annie 25 on 2019/08/17 17:16
I downloaded the daily free puzzle the other day and my iPad has been frozen (on this site) ever since! So I switched to a different puzzle site. I keep getting notifications to “come back”! I love the puzzles when they work, but I’ve had so much trouble downloading and getting new puzzles that I paid good money for to show up, that I don’t think this site is worth the money and the free puzzles cause my iPad to freeze up. 8/16/19- This is an on-going issue that affects not only daily free puzzles but also newly purchased puzzle packs. Very frustrating! The latest problem is that AARP shows a full page advertisement asking about home caregivers and there’s no way to get them off the site. This has been going on for a few days now and has happened more than once. I didn’t know that AARP would hi jack a site. By any chance, are they a copy cat? Is there anything you can do about this? It sure adds to the frustration!
Outline
by Missouri Belle on 2019/08/17 16:54
I used to be able to complete the outline of a puzzle then close it, leave it for a while and come back to find the outline still there. No more! Now, if I leave the outline, close the ap and come back later the outline is gone and I have to start over. What’s up with that?
Needs work
by Davidleestacy on 2019/08/17 13:04
After the last update, you have to swipe up multiple times to close the application. Not sure what has changed just frustrating!
Ruined a good thing
by NancyCBoepple on 2019/08/17 04:57
The table space is too small with two edges being too wide and the other two too thin. The actual table is too small.. it’s annoying me already . The pieces seem harder to move and when I open the puzzle there are lost pieces in the edges where I can’t see them. Fixing bugs are good but messin with what was fine.. not good. Could have gotten rid of some of the horrible table colors that rip your retinas out but hey 🤷🏼‍♀️ I was so happy playin my stupid puzzles and you go and “fix” it. Oy! Off to check other puzzles 😔 8/17/19 I agree with mollytrolly. The responses to the puzzle pieces are awful. I hold in the middle and have to keep tapping it to get it to the right spot. Instead of having fun I’m getting frustrated and annoyed. I used to be able to move the pieces around swiftly but now I just want to slap my iPad.. arg!
Pieces start graying out when 90% done with puzzle
by Jatoy10 on 2019/08/16 22:40
I previously enjoyed this app, but the last two puzzles that I started I have been unable to finish. Once I reach over 90% completion, the pieces start graying out as soon as I touch them. Once they gray out I am no longer able to move that piece. It is extremely frustrating to spend over 10 hours on a puzzle and not be able to finish!
Good, But Is Becoming Kinda Unplayable
by SpazzieMcgee on 2019/08/16 22:20
I love this game, and play nearly every day. Alas, the game has a habit of randomly closing out, about every five minutes or so. It’s relaxing, but when you can’t go for more than three minutes without the game freezing and crashing, it undermines that. Otherwise, fun!
Pleas reissues all the hundreds I bought before you stopped letting me access them. Thanks
by Kathy's apps on 2019/08/16 22:17
You’ve disconnected your original puzzles of which I bought hundreds!!!! And I’d like to know if I can get them all back now. I spent a lot of money on them and loved doing them. Please re- issue the ones I bought. I was so disappointed when you stopped making then available to me. Kathleen Matthews - thank you!!😅
Puzzle error

Loading puzzle it completely blanked and froze.
You’re Losing Me
by myrtlemo on 2019/08/16 16:51
I used to love this app but it has become really frustrating. I have dozens of your puzzle packs and work 4 or more daily. I’m losing interest because for several reasons: 1)I used to be able to slide a selected piece out from under other pieces but now have to remove all the pieces to get the one I want; 2)It’s getting nearly impossible to complete a pack because not all completed puzzles get recorded as completed no matter how many times they are done correctly.
PLEASE FIX IT!!!!!
by JEA MOM IN SC on 2019/08/16 14:09
I work a puzzle and complete it, and the next day it appears in PUZZLES IN PROGRESS. Right now for the pass several weeks I have been working the SAME 5-7 puzzles day after day completing them each time. I would love to order more but until this problem is fixed— sorry! Please help. I use to enjoy doing the puzzles but after same ones day after day I am beginning to ge bored! AGAIN PLEASE FIX THIS!! VERY DISAPPOINTED!
Last Update
by Mad in the Methow on 2019/08/16 03:17
The last update seems to be very glitchy. I can only download the latest free puzzle once out of a dozen tries. Very disappointing.
Something went wrong..
by Roblox Bloxxer on 2019/08/16 02:20
I LOVE this game and I have been doing a puzzle or two a day consistently. I ran out of free puzzles to do and I got an offer to upgrade to premium for $5 and I’ll get to make my own puzzle, no ads, and get two packs of puzzles (total of 95 puzzles). I got all that, EXCEPT for the 95 puzzles offered... I got two completely different puzzle packs that only have 55 in total. It’s still an good amount to have bought but this was definitely not the offer I was promised..
Deleting puzzles
by bakersfield5 on 2019/08/16 00:21
You keep deleting completed puzzles, Very frustrating, It started with the upgrade, I hope that you are working on this, This my only complaint. I really enjoy your puzzles,

When trying to place or slide a piece into place the puzzle moves and you can’t put it into its slot
Too bad
by JayInCorrales on 2019/08/15 21:28
App now demands I enter my password for the App Store before playing. No reason for that other than it’s been compromised. Bye, bye.
Love it,but glitches
by DouglasDG on 2019/08/15 16:23
I love the game, but the last two updates have caused problems. Several of the puzzles I have completed, show up in the puzzles in progress and I have to do them again. In some cases puzzles is there 3 or 4 times
Stop cheaping out
by duffyb on 2019/08/15 12:25
Puzzles are pretty good but when it comes to free coins, there is usually a “network error” making them unavailable. Don’t offer it if you don’t plan to provide it.
LOVE!!
by Loolooleaps on 2019/08/15 05:24
this is my favorite app. It helps me calm down when i have anxiety, gives me something to do while i’m bored, it’s so relaxing and very easy to use! i love how there are minimal ads and that there’s no lagging! another huge plus for me is that there are so many options, not just for the paid version but for the free version as well (which is what i have). i love the different categorized puzzles! moral of the story, i love this app, great game. if you want it definitely get it!! this is the only jigsaw puzzle app that i actually like and appreciate!!
Still haven’t fix the “Bug”
by :;'jh on 2019/08/15 02:30
Several updates ago...a new bug came into play that wasn’t there before. Now when you leave a puzzle and come back to it later, you click on puzzles in progress, it shows your puzzle is 87% complete, you click on the icon, puzzle comes up, scrambles and you are starting all over. After my third time on one puzzle and two times on another...I am done!! I use to love this app...played it all the time...now so frustrated I don’t see myself wasting time on it re- doing the same puzzle over and over again.
They broke it.... and fixed it .... and broke it again
by skids73 on 2019/08/15 00:52
The latest update breaks the Apple Pencil. I have no idea what they did, but it’s almost impossible to move puzzle pieces now.... the latest update fixes this.... now, they broke the backgrounds .... this isn’t the first time, .... when it works, the app is great, I just wish they had better quality control in their updates. This is going to make me disable automatic updates.....
Love It But Disappointed
by wendyjo11 on 2019/08/14 23:59
I love this game but I was really hoping that this update would fix the issue where the piece turn invisible and slide under the board when you try and move them. I started another puzzle while waiting but I am wondering if it is going to happen again as I get near completion and I’m afraid to keep going just in case the fix is around the corner. So...any updates?
Puzzle Crashes
by dpen on 2019/08/14 17:59
Love working these puzzles but app keeps crashing. I’m about to make a move and it just closes. Happens several times a day. I also have problems with the board locking up. I can’t move a piece or close the app. This is extremely frustrating. Hope they are fixed soon I don’t want to look for another app.
App broken for iPhone X

I love this game so much but it only has one problem.....you only start with twelve puzzles and i really would love if you added at least 1 more pack of puzzles with sceneryand if you would do that it would deserve a 5 star rating from me.
No religious puzzle

What’s happened to this app???
by AnnieWood on 2019/08/13 02:16
I have been doing puzzles on this app for probably 2 years. Have tried many others and after finding this one, deleted all others. I love the challenges and goals and that’s probably what I enjoy most. It also makes me purchase more. But several months ago when going to check on my goals, they said they were updating them and would be back in a few days. Like I said that was several months ago. I have done 2 updates and nothing has changed. A few days ago, I have moved on to another puzzle app. It’s time they get it fixed!
Ghosting pieces
by angiesmiles30 on 2019/08/13 02:00
Reported several times. Puzzles at varying completions suddenly stop working. The puzzle pieces will ‘ghost’ after touching them. Been going on for over 2 months. Get replies from developer that they ‘just’ been notified of the issue...no, not true.
Best Jigsaw App

Have tried various jigsaw apps and this one is the best! Left a review before and meant to give it five stars then as well.
Annoying!
by youreadithere on 2019/08/12 23:53
I love the puzzle part but the ads keep distracting me. There is no room to put the puzzle pieces to the side because the ads take up all the space!
Ads. And not a lot of free puzzles
by zontreck on 2019/08/12 11:54
Each individual puzzle is like $1-$4. And I couldn't see anyway to remove ads

Lots of free puzzles to solve and a new one everyday. I like being able to work on different puzzles with different piece counts

by smartblond1969 on 2019/08/11 22:17
I love puzzles, and virtual puzzles are so much better than setting up a card table and spending hours on a puzzle just to take it apart!
I used to love this app, but not much anymore!
by deileen54 on 2019/08/11 21:42
I don’t know why this change was made, but before I could touch a puzzle piece and I connected with it to move it. Now I touch a piece and I get everything but the piece that I want! I don’t like to use the ability to just show the outline pieces to make it easier to do the boarders. Now it seems that is all I can do to not get so frustrated with putting a puzzle together. Please if possible change back to when you touch a piece you will connect with that piece. Thank you
App used to work well
by sweetmyrtle on 2019/08/11 19:27
App was great but it has an issue lately. I used some credits to buy a puzzle pack a few days ago but can’t download the puzzles. App tells me to connect to the internet but I am connected to my home internet, which I working well. I have restarted my iPad as the FAQ’s suggested, but nothing will download. I have another puzzle pack which I obtained the same way a few months ago and the puzzles downloaded fine and they operate well. I contacted the app developer via email from within the “help” section but have not received a reply. I like the app, but will search for another one.
Scam app
by 12@wc on 2019/08/11 18:34
They say 75% off and when you check it out all puzzles are Only 33% and 50% off and you pay for the add free version And still get there adds it says nothing about still getting there Adds pushed on you when you upgrade it says ADD FREE And they offer very very little puzzles that guys would like
Love this app
by pattykayl on 2019/08/11 16:52
This is my favorite puzzle app. It is always on my iPhone and my iPad so I can pick up where I’ve left off. I have done many hundreds of puzzles. I must had thousands in my own gallery to pick from. I just wish there was some way so save them in the app so the done ones show up as done when I switch phones or iPads and have to download the app again.

Please, Please Fix the “Objectives”
by ZoePita on 2019/08/11 13:48
Hello, I have used this app for many, many years! In fact not a day goes by without me working on the latest puzzle. My husband and I were in a competition with each other by doing the “Objectives” (listed in the Gallery section) until several months ago when there is no visibility of it. It states “Objectives are temporarily unavailable. All your progress made before the update has been saved. Stay tuned.” Well, we have been Waiting, waiting and more waiting for this fix! Please fix this ASAP so that we may continue our competition. If it were not for this problem, I would rate this app 100% Awesomeness! Thank you. Sincerely, ZoePita
I would give this 5 stars if....

I could enlarge the preview more. It’s too small to see detail properly. Other than that, I really like this game.

just a question, if i upgrade do i get one custom puzzle or unlimited custom puzzles?
Best App Ever
by Grandkitties GMa on 2019/08/10 02:23
Best app ever when you need a stress-reliever that allows you to make choices based on your interests (beach puzzles, adorable cats and puppies, mountains, well you get my idea)! Good entertainment for waiting rooms — not noisy and easy to stop at any point.
Coin purchases
by Dj_awsome_91 on 2019/08/10 00:08
Can you actually buy anything with the coins?? I’ve looked and looked and so far nothing. I like the game just wish I could use the coins for something.

Puzzle pieces too difficult to slide around and I end up moving the background too often. Not fun!
Unhappy with changes
by msfick on 2019/08/08 14:23
I have used the app for years. I purchased the ad free version from the start. Loved the app. Then a change was made and my app started giving me ads. They fixed it. This latest change didn’t allow me to load new puzzles. They fixed that, now it wants more money for me to work the more complex versions. I’m done!
My new obsession
by Morazzle on 2019/08/08 13:24
Great in every way! Update: Still one of the best apps! You can make the visually stunning puzzles easy or hard with many variations. You can pick the number of pieces, whether or not rotation of the pieces is done, and there are so many puzzle packs, you will find something that interests you. There is one free puzzle a day that will keep you occupied even without buying additional packs of puzzles - which are priced very reasonably with many sales. No monthly fee! It works without cellular surface or WiFi for the puzzles you have already opened once. Absolutely no reason not to get this!
Money

I’ll admit it. I’m addicted to this game. I love the 400 piece setting, especially when I can finish in under 2 hours. Keep ‘me coming! -EstherWms75
Frustrating.
by K3g2mom on 2019/08/07 23:35
I love this game but I’m getting sick of having a black background show up with a frozen game area. FIX IT PLEASE.
Great Game
by Caisonel on 2019/08/07 20:35
This puzzle game if superb. It has a variety of FREE puzzles—including a new one every day. If you choose you may select theme based bundles either at a vary low cost or using earned by solving puzzles. You control the puzzle rewards you earn by selecting the difficulty level for each puzzle you play. Really fun and as challenging as you like.
Mostly good
by butterflybear on 2019/08/07 15:46
I think I only have 2 negative issues with this app. Touching and moving pieces is murky sometimes. I touch a piece and it grabs the next one, even if I know I'm touching the one I want. The app also likes to place pieces beyond the edge of the table, making them almost impossible to grab. My only other issue is more a good thing. Currently it will not let me download anything. So I cannot buy from the store, nor can I download from the cloud, even though I am connected, it says I am not.
Another update failure
by Jujubee99 on 2019/08/07 10:37
Latest update of 8/6/2019 has more troubles than things that may have been fixed. Tap the new daily puzzle and get a black screen on your iPad.
Something strange going on
by cross and puzzled on 2019/08/07 09:26
While playing the game the screen will change to a black screen that looks like a camera program. It never done this before and I have been playing this for years I don’t what’s going on but I will stop playing it until it’s corrected It is not the make your own puzzle camera option as this happens during play of the puzzle of the day
Dissatisfied
by Freidrich Johansen on 2019/08/07 01:31
Down loaded game. Bought some puzzles. App locked up. Now what?
Ads not suitable for kids
by K-t47 on 2019/08/06 17:02
They have started showing pornographic ads. DON’T let your kids play this.
Mind Settling
by Curlytoprr on 2019/08/06 11:22
I have a chronic illness and stay in the house most days. To keep my mind off of it, I play on the iPad. My most enjoyable times are when I do your puzzles. I look forward to seeing the free puzzle every day! I have purchased many and find your prices and selections are great. I do as many as 3 or 4 each day. The best part is while I’m working them, my mind is free from worry. Keep em coming!
I know the developers are trying to fix the bugs but
by priscillathequeen on 2019/08/06 07:59
Edited 8-5 Bugs might finally be fixed now. Change rating to 5 stars again. Edited 5-24 Getting extremely frustrated. After the latest update each puzzle has pieces that won't rotate. New puzzle or in-progress ones, all have the same problem so I can never finish any puzzle, wasting my time trying to earn points. When will it be fixed? Original review: The last update today seems to make it worse. I tried to work on an unfinished puzzle & the app is now completely frozen. Can't even get to the help menu to contact them. Please try to fix again.
What happened to this app?
by freeride1 on 2019/08/06 02:44
I’ve had this app and usually love it but lately my purchases do not show up after I paying for a pack. I’ve tried reaching out to customer service but no luck. Do yourself a favorite and don’t bother with this one.
Worked puzzles disappear
by lostfeathers on 2019/08/05 22:19
Nice app, fun puzzles. However, after working puzzles they reappear as “in progress,” and then you try to open the puzzle and it completely resets like it was never worked. Most annoying. Have contact MobilityWare several times about this problem, no response, no fix. Pick another puzzle app until this is resolved, otherwise you will become frustrated with the app deleting your puzzle work.
Jigsaw puzzle
by granny's usable on 2019/08/05 04:07
What happened to the piggy contest. I thought I had one more day. I only completed the first level - I think. It all disappeared so fast I couldn’t get my bearings. I won puzzles from the 80’s and thought that was the first level of the piggy contest. When I finished one more puzzle - only for the piggy contest- I didn’t get the 10 pink coins and the contest was no where to be found. On the contest it had said to come back and collect my prizes. Back to where? Collect what prizes?
Good app but ads are too long
by lyndsey wiwuebfb on 2019/08/05 02:15
Free puzzles are great but the ads before them are a minute long. I don’t think any other apps wait that long and the experience would be a lot smoother if they were shorter
Review,

My favorite puzzle. Have played it for years.. Enjoy the free Day Lewis.

by Kill ur dreams on 2019/08/04 22:32
Really you don’t need to buy a single puzzle. I’ve bought around 40 but I generally do the daily one. Big Bang for the buck.

by Antnida on 2019/08/04 16:38
I've had this game for several years. Very relaxing - until NOW!! I can't open the app because an image of an I completed puzzle (which was completed) keeps popping up and keeps the app from properly loading. Please fix this! I need my daily puzzle fix!
Lost pieces
by Shaman882 on 2019/08/04 15:15
I have 2 puzzles in the last month that the pieces disappear when you touch them. This only happens after I have spent hours on these puzzles with just 10 or 15 pieces to go. I emailed support and there is no response. Fix this and I will continue to spend money on this game. I have deleted it until I get a response.
DRAINS BATTERY
by RamCat75 on 2019/08/04 12:38
I enjoy playing this in my iPad. It’s too difficult to player on my phone screen. Too small to see and constantly scrolling to find & move pieces. My biggest complaint is that if I’m not plugged in to power, my battery drops from 100% to about 50% in the 10-15 minutes to play 1 puzzle. No other apps or games cause this kind of battery drain. As long as I’m at home plugged in, I love it.
Getting worse!
by Muni9 on 2019/08/04 06:06
The useable screen keeps getting smaller & smaller because of all the ads. It now is very difficult to work with inasmuch as tiles hide behind the ad bar. This doesn’t convince me to fork over the money for a paid version. Instead, it’s going to force me to delete the app - after many years of enjoyment!
What happened?
by Eldora14 on 2019/08/04 03:32
UPDATE: WHERE HAVE ALL MY PUZZLES GONE? I had SO many completed and stored in a “Gallery;” I was more than halfway done with another; and I had saved so many for future solving. AND puzzles I’ve completed are sitting their appearing unsolved. WHAT DID YOU DO? Since this update all my work is GONE! Changing stars from 3 to 1. So disappointed. Here’s my original review: For the past 2 days the pieces have been sluggish when dragged. Now, I can’t even get the game to open. I updated, deleted and reinstalled and I still can’t get it to play. Before this it used to be a lot of fun. The puzzles are challenging (or not, you determine the level), and I love that every day is a new free puzzle to add to your collection. So, what happened? PLEASE get it fixed ASAP so I can change 3 stars to 5.

by Jencarp2002 on 2019/08/03 23:23
I love jigsaw puzzles so when I found this one I was really excited by all the different puzzles there are. Right now though I’m not real happy because the objectives are not working. I like to challenge myself and those objectives helped.
Paid Puzzles
by 52Gypsy on 2019/08/03 21:49
I purchased Underwater Paradise today...it still hasn’t uploaded! When I purchase a puzzle pack it has always uploaded right away. What’s going on? Update... I had to delete the app and download it again, the puzzle packs are all there
Continuing to love this game!
by 35madscientist on 2019/08/03 21:14
Update with my previous review after: Just wanted to say thanks for the piggy thing, which allowed me to get 100 coins? And a free 10-piece puzzle! It said that a light bulb would show which puzzles would give the most points, but I never saw one. So I just did puzzles that gave the most points and showed a good amount of the piggy points! Thanks for giving it several days, too! Recently, I’ve become really sick and haven’t been able to do as many puzzles as I’d like. My arm is limited also because of a PICC line, but I’m still doing them when I can.Thanks again! I’m thankful for the free daily puzzles, plus the recent free puzzle pack! I don’t mind that it wasn’t 30 or 20 of them—I appreciate it and love the colorful different puzzles in the pack! I have been trying to do more pieces even in the daily puzzles, to see if I can! I do have a lot of packs, which I guess is why I have to re-download them. But I don’t do one pack at a time. It just depends on my mood or what I want to challenge myself to do; I just never know! And I like to look at the sales to see if I might want to buy something on sale. I buy regular priced ones, too. Often! Just wondering…why do some packs have crowns on them now? I noticed it after a recent update. Curious! :) I hope things keep working and I’ll keep purchasing and playing!
Great puzzle game
by Gizmo nut on 2019/08/03 19:52
I rated this 4 stars because you didn't list exactly what/how things were changed. I had to search help to find out how you changed "choose amount of pieces". I have no idea what else you changed because you just said you fixed bugs. But that isn't the case. It made playing very frustrating.

Why did the puzzle change from 225 pieces to 75 ? How do I get it back to 225 pieces?

Love the app. I was having issues of the app crashing. That has now stopped happening. Do the puzzles daily.
Paid version loaded with ads
by Tyrien on 2019/08/03 08:53
Every time I open the app I’m hit over the head by multiple ads promising deals and random nonsense. Ads in premium versions of apps shouldn’t exist.
Could be so much better
by Elliern on 2019/08/03 01:11
So frustrating!! Sometimes the pieces won’t move at all. Just have to keep trying over and over. But really frustrating is that most of the time the entire board moves when wanting to move just one piece. If those problems were fixed it would be an enjoyable game. Really wish I could rate it higher.
A huge step backwards
by Rebelizdav on 2019/08/02 19:51
I have played this puzzle game for several years now. During that time, with every “update”, it has gotten more and more intrusive with their sales notices. I actually have bought quite a few of their picture packs even though they mostly consist of royalty free photos found easily on the net. I spend quite a bit of time in places where there is not access to a WiFi connection. However with this last “update”, you now have to be online to play the puzzles which you already own and have downloaded to your device. That along with forcing ad content down your throat which you have to read to dismiss it is the last straw for me. They have lost me as a long time customer.
Amazing app- just one issue
by shleebee16 on 2019/08/02 18:49
I love this app, go on everyday for my daily puzzle, and use it a lot when I’m on the subway. The only ONLY thing that could be better is a tool option for moving multiple pieces at once. Moving my pieces to the side one at a time is driving me crazy

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

by George293 on 2019/05/07 01:23
Absolutely love the puzzles and the choices and the fact that you can change the amount of pieces to do the puzzle. Great idea to have a different puzzle every day. Great idea that I can open a new puzzle in the Christmas pack every day. Very addictive. Sometimes the pieces are very slow to move and that get me frustratedly. Then it disconnects and you have to resign on again. The new improvement of the piece lighting up when in place is great. Give it a 5 star rating May6,2019 I don’t know what happened it is going down hill. They finally fixed board freezing then had problem for several days where daily puzzle didn’t come up. Today a new problem when I down loaded new puzzle of day and opened it I had a black background, board was frozen and no borders for puzzle. When I went to saved puzzles same thing. Tired to change background color and there was no colors to choose from- blank screen. Game freezing again. Game going down hill. To many problems one right after another. Never was like that before. Might delete game. No longer 5 star game, maybe 2 star. May6th. I must say the puzzle team addressed today’s problem promptly and got the game up and running at 100%. Well done
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 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.
Puzzled....
by meeshbrand on 2017/09/21 06:02
In the beginning I was happy with the app... then, I attempted to purchase the add on that would have enabled me to use my own photos as puzzles... it was also supposed to unlock all of the features associated with this app.... Unfortunately, it did NONE of these things... what it DID DO, however, was to take the money out of my account for it.... I attempted to make this same purchase again, some months later, at its relentless prompts.... again, it did not unlock any features... this time, however, I removed the credit card number that it was going to take the money from... The next time I attempted to download a FREE app, it refused to let me do it, as it said I owed money... even though I never received anything, the first time, & they DID get their $, it held my phone ransom, & wouldn't let me do anything until I put that credit card back in... & of course, the minute I did... it took, for a second time, money for something I never received.... I attempted to try & reach someone, which I never was able to get a call back from... now, I have no add one, yet I'm now receiving more & more adverts... which was SUPPOSED to be one of the things that I was supposed to get as part of the package I've now paid for TWICE.... the AD FREE app.... I'm receiving at least 5~6 ads with each & every puzzle I attempt to complete.... :(
Better than average

This is a fairly good game. To be honest, I am using the free version, and noticed some glitches at the start - specifically, it slows down at times. I have bought 3 puzzle packs and the puzzle feels slower than ever. There are pieces that seem to "stick" when you try to choose or move them, so my timing to completion is slowed. Overall, I enjoy the puzzles (otherwise I wouldn't have purchased packs) but they are increasingly hampered and slowed. So I will not continue to buy packs until the programmer unsticks the pieces and makes it so that each piece moves readily and smoothly, even if ads are scrolling across the bottom. Update: 4/7/18: Recent puzzle update helped in that I no longer have to listen to ad jingles while playing. (I prefer my own music in the background). However, pieces still get stuck; the whole puzzle stops intermittently - I have to completely close down and re-open, which wastes a lot of time. I had purchased several packs but won't buy more: I noticed a trend in the puzzles they offer that I feel are PREJUDICED. They only have puzzles of certain parts of the world; for ex., even when showing puzzles of the Mediterranean areas, only Greece, Italy, France were shown. In fact there are many Western European photos and Far East (China) while other countries are ignored. When they start offering more global choices, I may consider buying more packs.
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!
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.

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!

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.
To share is to be an add
by Woolvic on 2018/03/31 04:30
I love jigsaw puzzles. And digital puzzles take up no table space, unless my iPad is on the table. I have had this puzzle app for 5 years. I am completely happy with the puzzles and solving them. BUT ... SHARING THEM HAS CHANGED! I strongly dislike the way the completed puzzle picture is now changed, shrunk, and surrounded by other stuff to make an ad out of it. When I share my completed puzzles on Facebook, I want to show the picture of the completed puzzle as it existed when I completed it. This is how it used to be shared. The app logo was in the lower corner. That should be enough. Friends who asked were told about the app. I was apparent with the app logo. Now it’s a link that shows a tiny picture of the puzzle. Oh, in fact even that is nor always the case. I recently posted a completed puzzle only to find out that the picture I shared was not the picture displayed. What crap! I have decreased my satisfaction rate from 5 to 3 stars all because of the change in sharing. I want the old way back. I’m the one solving the puzzle. I want to share the results of my effort as it is depicted when I complete the picture, full size with puzzle lines. Logo & link info should NOT overpower the picture. Or find another way to promote your app.
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!
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!
My favorite puzzle game
by BWB7 on 2017/12/17 07:15
I have had this game for some time now. It is my favorite puzzle game of all time. Just when I think it can not get better, they surprise me with an update that does enhance its quality even more. I enjoy how there are a plethora of puzzle pictures. Literally there is a option available for all tastes. I love how you can continue to play this game for free indefinitely as there is a free puzzle every day as well as free puzzle packs to play. On top of that there is a place where you can view puzzle packs for a price. The puzzle packs are very inexpensive and also offer a wide variety of design choices. Being able to pick how many pieces you want each of your puzzle to be, having the choice to rotate the pieces, being able to pick your background playing tabletop design, and so many other tactical options makes this application superior to the others. Thank you to the makers of this application for creating such a quality product that allows users to continue to play for free as long as they want or be able to pick packages at reasonable prices if desired.
Good fun gone bad Update
by TXChick512 on 2018/02/16 01:22
Mobilityware let me know that to reduce the data storage that this app uses, delete your completed puzzles. I could not find this at first, but the Completed Puzzles icon is in My Gallery located at the bottom of the home page. They also say you can delete the Trophy room, but I can't find that room on my iPad. It does not appear that they have plans to stop the advertising pop ups. So, I raise my rating to 4 stars. This is a great game. I love puzzles, but Mobilityware has destroyed this app. Or maybe Critical Hit did when they sold out. Either way, I strongly suggest you PLAY the FREE version. DO NOT PURCHASE this app, because you will still get advertising that interrupts your play, but worse than that, they don't control the cache that takes up all your data storage space. Their only solution is to delete all that you have purchased. I haven't purchased so many puzzles that it should be taking 8.4 GB (and growing every day I play) of my data storage. Beware! They should add a feature that removes cache when you reboot! Their only solution is to delete everything I've purchased. Very sad. Does anyone have a suggestion that they can't or won't provide?
Changes in your puzzles
by D.S. in Ohio on 2018/04/21 21:23
I have enjoyed doing puzzles on theJigsaw Puzzle app and purchased quite a few packs in the last two years since I got my I pad. But I do not like their recent changes. It was nice after finishing a puzzle to have the satisfaction of seeing the puzzle large for as long as I chose to look at my finished work. Now they flash it large for a second or two and then it goes small. I feel as though I barely get to focus in on my finished work in the large format! I also liked seeing the name of the puzzle after finishing it but have noticed that is not always there now. I am disappointed in their changes. I received a response from the makers of Jigsaw Puzzle within 48 hours of my above review. They were very courteous and explained I can see my finished puzzles in a large format and view them for as long as I wish under “completed puzzles” at the Jigsaw Puzzle site I use. Thank you for that information. I checked it and it does work just as you said! I am pleased. I upgrade my evaluation to 5 stars now! I really enjoy your puzzles!🙂. Thank you.
Coins?!
by PugPuzzler on 2019/04/29 17:32
I think that they charge way too much for the puzzles tbh. There are free ones, but 3,990 coins for a puzzle pack? It would be different if you got more coins for completing a puzzle, but the most you can get is 36 coins for completing a 400 piece puzzle. You’d have to do an awful lot of puzzles just to be able to buy a puzzle pack. You get lots of puzzles in the packs, but maybe dial it down some! I get that they want people to buy coins, but there are plenty of people who can’t. I think that if they want to do better, I’d say to at least give more coins for the puzzles we complete. They have plenty of sales which is good, but they still range anywhere from 900 to 2,000 coins. Maybe add an option where you can just buy a single puzzle with coins? Above that, it’s an amazing game. For a while it wouldn’t let me do the daily free puzzle, but they fixed it. I like how it times you, to. I’m always trying to better my puzzle skills 😂. There’s no time limit, it just sees how long it takes you to complete it. I like that though. But yeah, make some changes with the coins, and you’ll get the fifth star ⭐️. But for now, ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ from me.
My Favorite App
by Elaine0400 on 2019/06/12 21:19
Jigsaw Puzzle is great for all ages. I wouldn’t change one thing. I have made 427 puzzles from August 4, 2017 to June 12, 2019. A free puzzle is offered every day. The selection of puzzle packages are endless and the prices are very low. You can pick how many pieces you want each puzzle divided into. My favorite is 121 pieces. You can start each puzzle with just the outside edges, by touching the little picture of a corner piece, then scatter them. All the other puzzle pieces will come automatically. The puzzle pieces are in the correct angle unless you want to have to turn them. Learn what all the little choices do when learning to do your first puzzle. Every puzzle you finish is saved so you can look at them anytime. Touch the little picture of the lock when you are moving the puzzle pieces to where they go. Then the puzzle will not move as you scoot each piece to where it goes. Jigsaw Puzzle is very relaxing. If you don’t finish the one you’re working on it will be saved until you are ready to work on it again.
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.
Reliving my youth
by IODICE1341 on 2019/05/03 15:13
I just love this app! I have always loved doing puzzles from when I was a child. This app gives you one free puzzle each day or you can search the puzzle library for other free ones or many you can purchase. I complete one puzzle each day and whenever I have a free 10 minutes I work on my puzzle. Great fun! Try it....you will love it!! Still loving this app. I really love the puzzles with the bright colors. They are fun to do and the finished products are brilliant. I do at least one puzzle each day and it is very calming compared to the other games that drive me crazy. I really like the feature where you can resize the puzzle pieces. You can have 8 pieces or 300 pieces. Good for all ages!! Enjoy. I am adding a new comment today. I still love this app, however I got a new iPad recently and there was no way to retrieve my completed puzzles or my winning coins. I was able to retrieve my purchased puzzles but I am starting from scratch as far as completion goes. I am doing the same puzzles over again and I had to start from no coins when on my old iPad I had over 2000 coins. There must be a way to correct this flaw.
Obnoxious Ads & Glitchy Playboard
by Inbodied on 2018/11/01 23:55
This is an update to my earlier review. In addition to the issues below, this latest update dropped me as a premium user and I was assaulted with obnoxious ads that I had to wait for until I could start playing my puzzle. After contacting support and asking why I was suddenly being inundated with ads after being ad free for several years, they sent me instructions about resigning in with my Apple ID. When that didn’t work, they insisted I prove to them that I had upgraded to the ad free version. Since I upgraded in 2013, that was no small feat. It took an hour of my day. I’m wondering how many others were purged and will pay to upgrade again rather than spend the time to find a receipt. Earlier review: After not playing for a while I'm back and even more disappointed. The puzzle pieces stick to the edge of the screen and no amount of coaxing will move them. Very frustrating. I love working jigsaw puzzles and this app was the best one I found when I first started playing. It appears to be getting glitchier with every update. The puzzle freezes and the pieces won't move for several seconds. I often have to close the app and relaunch. I'm also frustrated with the sensitivity of the touch screen. I go to move a piece and the puzzle moves instead.
No Customer Support
by eelissat on 2019/06/27 14:49
UPDATE: This issue has finally been resolved and I have added back stars for how much I love this app! I have been using and loving this app for a few months now. I love puzzles, and this is app is the most realistic I have found to working an actual puzzle. Because of this, I decided I was willing to spend some money to buy more puzzles, and I NEVER spend money on in-app purchases. Ever. But this time I did, and that’s where things went wrong. My purchase did not download. I have been charged, but received no product. I followed the steps on the FAQ page and still have not been able to acquire what I paid for (or my money back). I reached out twice in two different places to customer support asking for help. All I’ve been given is the same instructions that were already on the FAQ page that I had already followed and that did not work for me. I have not been able to get a response from anyone about my purchase. I am feeling frustrated and ignored, and I am kicking myself for breaking my no in-app purchase rule. All I can say is, I am so glad I did not spend a ton of money!
Jigsaw puzzle game, new changes
by chadskate on 2019/03/16 21:51
I love my puzzles, and have worked hundreds of them. The new changes concern me though. The pieces are very hard to move, the scatter function puts pieces beyond the edge of the game board, the picture after the puzzle has been solved is so small it does not read well, let alone the 3 packs on the bottom of the completed puzzle. I am very disappointed in this ‘update’. Please fix these problems. Also, the whole game board floats around if you try to move it just a little, both vertically and side to side. It is very unstable. What made you think these ‘updates’ were what was needed? I do love my puzzles. I own 30 puzzle packs, and work 4-5 puzzles every day. I wish you would get away from all those kitschy paintings you’ve been trying to sell lately. I am more interested in photos. The kitschy paintings are too sentimental, too other time, other world, lets go back to the 50 s. I want puzzle packs that are based in reality, not the milquetoast of sentimental drivel.
Love it but it’s glitchy
by AEQ30 on 2018/10/31 02:53
I really love this app and use it almost everyday to pass time during a break between meetings or unwind before bed. I have two issues though that drive nuts. The first issue is that sometimes after choosing a new puzzle and the tile size, an ad will run (which is fine no big deal) however once the ad finishes, it takes me back to the same set up screen. From this screen the only thing I’m able to do is X out and then start all over. After I choose the tile size again and watch another ad, I’m then taken to the puzzle. The second (and far more annoying) issue is that sometimes I’ll be doing a puzzle and all of a sudden I’ll be taken to the App Store. I try to switch back to the puzzle but once selected, I’m again taken back to the App Store. The only way to kill this irritating cycle is to close the app then close the App Store and then relaunch Jigsaw. I’m not sure if it only happens on the iPhone X or what the issue is, but it’s wicked annoying. Lastly, and this is just a request not a complaint, I would love a tile option larger than 400 on the iPhone.
Updates unsatisfactory.
by labrys35 on 2019/03/25 00:35
I have had this app for years and I have used it a lot. I love it. Just now, though, I am frustrated with the updates I just loaded. The “scatter” function is sending several pieces so far to the edge that it is difficult to grab them to move them without closing the window in error or pulling up the tool bar. Also, the “click” that happens when a piece is locked in place is louder - may be thought to be clearer - but it annoys me. I will continue playing as I love being able to do the puzzles with no lost pieces and no interference from my cats. Some of the features I like are being able to separate out the edge pieces, scattering pieces out of the center of the desktop, and having a free puzzle offered every day. I like the addition of the coins so that I may earn free puzzle packs. One thing that is a misconnect right now is that if I have done a puzzle which later is in a puzzle pack I download, the app does not recognize that it has been done by me, so I would need to do it again in order to complete the pack. But that is a minor irritation that I will live with.
updated to three stars
by Norm M on 2019/01/01 13:57
I enjoy doing jigsaw puzzles (find it a relaxing pastime) but am rating it 3 (up from two) because There are many features that I like, but the two things I dislike are: When using scatter feature, pieces often scatter to edges of background. The background and puzzle don’t lock, so playing area often gets larger “by accident”, so have to re-adjust puzzle size several times...The lock feature is on but (perhaps this is for pieces) I like the feature of making image & table larger/smaller, but...Also, I requested common or botanical names be used to ID flora, (I use developers puzzles, not my own, so I can learn) the developer(s) get free puzzles from the web & uses web descriptions (eg: Two Yellow Flowers). I think this is laziness. After my complaint, My husband rec’d an email saying this would be addressed. It was ignored. Then he rec’d an email asking to increase his (my) rating. Please don’t send toyuniverses anymore emails. (I use my husband’s Apple ID in App Store). Also, in “Best of Europe II” set, if you use the edge option, the puzzle becomes B&W (red color disappears) in “Red Telephone Booths in Scotland”., a bug Carol C. aka WoofWoof
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... 😇
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.
Great App!
by IPTFAN on 2018/11/15 02:57
I have had this app for quite a while now and really enjoy it. I like that you can make the puzzles more difficult by selecting the piece rotation before you build your puzzle but I wish this would work in reverse after you have already started a puzzle. I took my own photo, an upgrade that allows for unlimited puzzles which is great, however the picture I chose is very difficult, I have invested hours and hours trying to complete it, and I am getting very frustrated. If I could shut off the piece rotation I would be more likely to try to finish the puzzle. As things are now, I never will. Puzzles available for purchase are reasonably priced and there is a lot of variety. The upgrade to take my own pictures was too. World of Color collections are great! Some collections have too few puzzles in them, I usually download only those with more puzzles. A recent upgrade making it easy to find the edge pieces is wonderful! The background option is really nice too, so you can change backgrounds based on the colors in the puzzle for contrast. However, I find I use mostly a few select backgrounds as they work well with most puzzles. Another thing I would like to see is to be able to move "piles." When I sort based on matching pieces it would be great if I could move a whole pile to one side of the board before laying them out rather than having to move each piece one at a time. Thanks for a relaxing, enjoyable puzzle app with many choices available!
Undo the “fixes”
by Js Daughter on 2019/03/16 14:55
I’ve had this app for over a year and play it a lot. Love the puzzles and variety of pictures. I like the most difficult 400 piece puzzle... challenging but fun! For me, this was a 4-5 star app but now it’s a 2 and that’s generous! A few days ago when I opened this app, there was a notice that a few “upgrades” had been done along with a few “fixes”. Well whatever these upgrades and fixes were, they need to be UNDONE! This has become the most irritating game I have. The pieces are very difficult to move now. If you don’t touch them exactly right (not sure how that is because it seems to change), your entire picture moves as if that piece had been locked into place. And it’s now very difficult to actually move the piece into the correct place and have it lock in. This so-called fix has made it so frustrating it’s not enjoyable anymore. I spend way too much time moving the entire puzzle back to the center of the screen because it’s been pulled over when I’ve tried to move one piece...which happens with almost every piece I try to move. If this can’t be fixed or undone, I’ll have to give up the app. Too bad...it was one of my favorites.
Bad update

Edit Summer 2019: I followed the recommendation to update the iPad operating software and it helped some but still overheats the iPad. I found a solution by accident while traveling, though. If I put it in airplane mode while playing the puzzle, it runs smoothly and doesn’t overheat. So I am increasing the score from 3 to 4 stars. The spring 2019 update has made the game unplayable on my iPad mini 2. It is now slow and jerky, overheats my device, and crashes occasionally. Whatever updates were made are too processor intensive. The two I noticed are: improving the rotation point of the piece, and improving the scatter function to reduce overlap. Both are great ideas, but not if I can no longer play. It’s a shame because I did like the game. There is a free daily puzzle. You can cut the puzzle into between 4 and 1000 pieces. You can opt to have piece rotation on or off. The puzzle functions are easy and natural. You can earn points by completing puzzles, which can be spent on new puzzle packs. I usually did 400 piece puzzles with rotation on, to maximize the points earned.
Downloaded Puzzles not opening up

l am super disappointed. Everyone knows how long it takes to get 4,000 coins to be able to finally download puzzles you are anxious to play if you don’t purchase them. l finally got over 4,000 + coins & ended up downloading Two Puzzle Packs that were on sale World of Color V, and “Colorful Cocktails.” The World of color V pack downloaded just fine to my puzzles and l am able to play it. However, l downloaded the “Colorful Cocktail,” puzzle pack and it says its downloaded and (Tap to open to play) but it will not open. l have tried several times now. Even by shutting down the app entirely and re-opening it and it still will not open but says it is downloaded to my puzzles. I am super irritated that l just spent an extra 1,990 coins on this Colorful Cocktail puzzle pack that refuses to open!! This is the first time this has happened to me, but it’s ridiculous that l cannot open the puzzle pack that l just spent pretty much the rest of my coins on! Now what am l supposed to do if l can’t trust all puzzle packs to actually download to my puzzles correctly; where they may not open up when spending my coins on them????! My rating because of that just dropped drastically...
Fun but... ( I formally remove "but...")

I enjoy working the puzzles. It sparks my creativity. Unfortunately, when finished, I hate to discard them. This stems from my experience in Architecture class where I wanted to keep my project while everyone else enjoyed destroying theirs. Update: I discovered the page that shows all the puzzles I have completed, so I get to keep them after all. I have a friend of Polish descent, so I send him the ones of Poland that I complete. The only problem I have is I have to write down the location pictured before I work the puzzle. 2nd update: I also work another puzzle that has the pieces at the side to scroll through. Those pieces are too small to see the detail. I prefer this setup with space to arrange most if not all of the pieces on the workspace to the sides. Sometimes, after finishing the border, I put together groups until they can connect to the border. All the pieces remain the same size regardless of their location. The flashing is not necessary but it confirms proper location.
Terrible User-Interface
by CAD Programmer on 2019/04/12 13:54
This app drives me nuts with its awful detection of where I’m touching the screen. It is CONSTANTLY grabbing the wrong pieces, selecting pieces far away from where my finger is actually touching the screen. It also gets “stuck” in a pan mode (scrolling the puzzle instead of moving a piece) which is absolutely obnoxious! Very frustrating user-interface!! There is a LOT of lag caused by a constantly updating ad banner, and the app is a MAJOR battery hog draining your device down to zero in less time than it takes to complete a 400-piece puzzle (about 25 minutes for me). And forget about temporarily switching to a different app or taking a call - the app crashes whenever it loses focus. Seriously. (And this is AFTER the “bug fixes” update!) Also, ever since the last “update”, the app is HORRENDOUSLY SLOW, all graphics reduced in size, and Objectives is always “not available”. It seems like just blunder after blunder with this software. (Maybe coded by ex-Apple employees?) There are WAY too many ads, freeze-ups, and crashes to rate anything higher than one star. If the performance issues aren’t resolved within 30 days (plenty of time for competent programmers) I will be deleting the app. Update: Deleted the app - it is AWFUL!!
Pretty Good

Overall, this app is like having a regular, old-fashioned picture puzzle anywhere you go. But sometimes, it’s hard to get pieces to move - it may take several tries to pick up a piece to move it. And trying to zoom sometimes moves pieces instead, as also can happen while trying to scroll while zoomed in. Or the wrong piece will get grabbed occasionally. But it’s nice to be able to toggle between number of pieces in a puzzle; it’s your choice as to how difficult a puzzle is to put back together. And the option to maintain the piece orientation is nice - being on a smartphone means a small screen, and it can take a lot of time just to sort pieces or scroll-drag-scroll-drag a piece while zoomed in, so smaller/more pieces means extra effort and time. For such things, it would be nice to be able to “hold” a piece while you move it from one side of the puzzle to the other while zoomed in. Also nice to have would be a draggable tray to gather a type/color/whatever pieces in. It’s still hard to stop work on a puzzle once you start, tho!
Great, but needs a couple more fixes...

I really enjoy this app, and spend quality time doing the puzzles. Since the number of pieces was increased (which I really liked) there needs to be a way to select more in-between options in the higher counts. Right now, it makes huge jumps in the count, such as from from 400 to 625. I have done a couple of the 625 and 900, but I would really like more choices in these ranges. I chose a 900 count for a picture with great detail, and got really frustrated, it was just too much. Would love to have counts for 450, 500, 550, 600, etc going up to your max. Also the hint button is a very nice improvement, but it would be better if it just put the piece into the puzzle, and not have the two step process. Also would like a function in which if you hold down the hint button, it places pieces sequentially, and is easy to control, like on another PC jigsaw puzzle program I have. This way, when I regret choosing a 900 piece puzzle, I can speed up the hints! Thank you for improving the app and listening to my suggestions.

I have been working ur puzzles for four years. Love them. But today us the first time I have had the request to buy free ads and the first time I have had to out up with ads. Just wondering what the deal us ???? Why after 4 years am I getting thus stuff. Not a happy camper !!! Oct 28 I went ahead and bought the 4.99 package deal that said I would have 3 groups of puzzles and no ads. But now all my puzzle that I had out there , that I had already bought, have all disappeared and all I have now is the three that came with the buying of the so called freeing of the ads. Where did my puzzles go. What is going on. Loved doing my puzzles but am not happy that the ones I already purchased and have not worked r gone. Also the area that tells u if u have tried different size puzzles has all disappeared also. Not happy. I hate to have to quit working the puzzles but I want my puzzles back that I have already spent money on. Would appreciate some kind of answer ,
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.
Back to the best!

***I’m updating my review. The makers of the game quickly responded to the complaints about an update. They did another update today and fixed the problems. Thanks for listening!!! I’m so happy!! This really is the best puzzle game. I’ve played them all. I kept coming back to this one. You get a free puzzle daily. I love the puzzle pack choices, the layout, and functionality. If you love jigsaw puzzles, this is the app to get! I’m so not loving the latest update. I find myself getting super frustrated and just having to take a break. The fluidity of moving the puzzle pieces has changed. The pieces are hard to grab and move to the right place. I try to grab a piece and the board moves around. This app has gone from a relaxing, enjoyable one to one that raises my blood pressure. Why fix something if it wasn’t broken? I just purchased several packs a couple of weeks ago. Bummer! Please consider changes things back. 🙏🏻 Before the update, I would’ve given 5 stars.
Fun App

I like this puzzle app better than others I've tried. You can do your border first; then bring in the other pieces (if that's the way you work). Rather than having the pieces in a column on the side that you have to scroll through, you can organize them around your "board". I had been doing these puzzles for months and months and achieved almost all the trophies and the app just quit. I recently reinstalled it and had to start again. Beautiful pictures! Oct., 2017- this newest version is great. It scatters your pieces in a much more defined area. You can actually get all the pieces for the 1,000+ piece puzzle on the screen at one time. At this time I don't know if my iPad is slowing things down or if it's the app, but now I have to click the app repeatedly to try to open it. It's getting very frustrating. The pictures are lovely-beautiful colors, lovely landscapes, fabulous art work. The app counts the time that it takes you to complete the puzzle.
If it ain’t broke....

I reviewed before and gave 5 stars, after trying several puzzle apps, I decided this was the best. Eventually I bought the enhanced version, mostly to get rid of the flashing ads, but the other features were good as well, especially background options. Anyway I was happily puzzling away, probably more than I should, until the last update which scatters the pieces more evenly. Great idea, but...a bunch of them end up under the control bar, and have to be moved out. That’s okay I guess, I usually just do it right away as I begin to sort. What’s been lost here is the ability to rescatter as I am working, without losing the sorting, because pieces just fly all over and back out to the edges instead of just clearing the frame and staying in relatively the same order that they were. Anyway, I just never use that feature after the first scatter unless I have almost everything nailed down. I hope I have described the problem clearly and that there may be a way to fix it, or return to the previous method.
