What happend


I had this app a while back , when it was more jolly fun with different fun hidden pictures and themes for each month, it could be set for easy and difficult , I played it myself when I would be in boredom or just for fun , and now it’s just for small kiddos I’m sure other adults enjoy the old version , even the music was better . I miss it . Can you guys bring it back or do something for adults too

One of the absolute worst things you can do is get your kid all excited for a game that says FREE In the App Store and then you get it downloaded and it's NOT FREE!!!!! Don't advertise as free if this is not free. Now my son and daughter are super upset cuz they were really looking forward to this game and I don't have a job at the moment to pay for them. Wouldn't have even asked them if they wanted it if it would have said $3.99 and not FREE! $3.99 is not free!

Hi, Troy

Thank you for your review. I'm sorry to learn of any misunderstanding. We invite everyone to download the Hidden Pictures app and try it for free! If you choose to subscribe, you get 30 days of the full app experience before your monthly fee begins. You can stop the subscription at any time.

Kind of misleading


The app is technically free but you have to pay a subscription fee to continue to play. I agreed to the 3.99 subscription but only get 6 puzzles per week! That’s not cool! It only takes like barely 10 minutes to play the 6 puzzles! That’s not even a puzzle a day!! Will be letting my subscription expire 🤷🏾‍♀️.
