What's New in Version 1.8
back to old tray behavior, minor bug fixes
Sigh. . .
I waited so long to get this favorite app back only to find that it wasn't the same. YET. Hopefully there will be another update soon.
My gallery has disappeared and now I have to pay to redo the ones that used to be there.
The bar with all the pieces is even harder to see. A better contrasting background still hasn't been added so that some or most of us can see the edges of the pieces.
The puzzle piece size used to be smaller and now the game is not as challenging.
I will check back soon to see if things have changed. I want to love this app again!
Well, checking back and still I am still missing the old version. The board says 300 puzzle pieces but that's not accurate. I am finding that I don't spend as much time here as before but I will keep checking to see if things improve.
Well, back again, hoping to find the problems fixed. Unfortunately the Dashboard that holds the unused pieces is still poorly designed, making the app extremely difficult to see for those of us without perfect vision. If the contrast inside that bar were better, I would probably be able to give this app a 4 star.
Can't give it a 5 star since I'm still angry about them taking away my completed puzzles and wanting to charge me to get those puzzles back again.
Otherwise, this is a beautiful app with very challenging small-piece puzzles that can take hours to complete. Love that but just wish I could see it all without straining my eyes so much.
Needs bug fix
The basic design of this app is really nice. From there it leaves a lot to be desired.
I see people have commented on the bug that causes pieces to fly to the corner and stick there. This makes the game unusable. They should have fixed it immediately but it is still a problem after at least a month and a half.
This could be a great game but it's too annoying and frustrating to almost finish it, then have a piece get stuck in the corner and lose the whole game. Why would they take so long to fix such a major bug? I was going to buy some of the additional puzzles, but I won't because it's a waste of time until they fix some of this mess and at least make it playable.
This should also allow the user to choose the background from a set of choices in settings. Accidentally changing the background is too easy, then you have to tap through a set of hideous backgrounds to get to something usable.
And ads on a paid version? Give me a break.
1star until they fix the bug. 5 stars if they ever do.
The game is slowly getting better
The good: when the game works, it's a pleasure. It seems to work much more often after the latest updates. It is easier to grab the puzzle pieces, or search for pieces without accidentally grabbing a piece.
You may want to change the background often to increase the contrast for the pieces you want. The puzzle is easier than cardboard puzzles. For one thing, you are given the orientation of the pieces. Also, if the piece fits, it locks, so no guessing if the fit is right.
The bad: updates such as to a new iPad, are terrible. The app forgets which puzzles you purchased. When it remembers, it takes forever to download the puzzles again.
