Best Puzzle App Out There!
I’ve tried several puzzle apps for the computer and this one is THE BEST. The graphics are better than any other available apps or free puzzle websites and there are plenty of puzzles to get you started. When I completed all of the available puzzles in Jigsaws Galore Free, I paid a couple of dollars and purchased Jigsaws Galore. Once I completed those, I downloaded my own pictures from the internet, and a few of my own snapshots as well. The photographs available on the internet are endless. I take fifteen minutes or so to search, choose and download a bunch of pictures from the internet. Architecture, beaches, trees, animals, flowers, you name it and you can find it. Then, in the Jigsaws Galore app, click on the ‘create’ button, then 'create picture from picture file.’ Search for the picture you want from ‘downloads,’ then click ‘open.’ When you do this, a box labeled, ‘create a puzzle’ will appear. From there you can set the number of pieces you prefer, I like mine around 275. You can also set the puzzle piece shape and other options as well. I do puzzles with my grandchildren too. They help find pictures they want to use for their puzzle. Then, set the puzzles to six, twelve, twenty-four or more pieces depending on their age. We share special one on one time and now when they visit, they always want to do puzzles with Nene!
Best Puzzle App I’ve Ever Seen!!
I broke my leg last year and ran out of things to do while laying around and someone recommended doing jigsaw puzzles on the computer. So I went searching and I found this app and it has been great! I love the app so much I had to buy the upgraded version. It is so worth the money! It has the most options I’ve ever seen in a jigsaw app. I love how I can increase or decrease the number of pieces in a puzzle. You can adjust the size & shape of the pieces as well and the size of the board too. I truly enjoy the customization. It adds to the variety. I love having trays to sort the pieces into and the option to have the picture as a shadow on your board and you adjust how visible it is! There were quite a few options and settings that it took a little bit of time to get familiar with them all but the instructions are great and now I find it is the easiest app to use. It truly is a great app! I just wish there was a version for the iPad. I just got an iPad and was looking for it to install but was disappointed to find it’s not available. But it made me think I should finally write a good review. I just can’t say enough about it!
Creative, inventive, user friendly, and a big bang for the buck!
I played the free version but quicky ran out of free puzzles (can't stop). So I upgraded to this version so I could make puzzles from any picture I wanted to. Whether its something you download off the web or already have in your pictures folder the creativity is wide open and left to just anything you want. Im a guy so internet pics from Sports Illustrated, Victoria's Secret, Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders, pictures of friends and family and places we've been, and I could go on and on. You can manipulate the puzzle from very simple (for small children) to very complicated for puzzle enthusiasts. Lots of help and a very responsive author. I had a problem and he responded by email hours later. There's more freebies on his webpage and more helpful information. I can't find anything wrong with it so its 5 stars from me! Im sure you'll have way more fun than 3 bucks will normally provide! If you like puzzle grab this one - you won't be disappointed.
