Try the lite version of Tangrams and then upgrade to add over 550 puzzles!
This modern version of the classic Chinese puzzle game will challenge your mind as you attempt to arrange the seven shapes called "tans" into a variety of forms. The puzzles themselves often represent animals and people, as well as many other interesting shapes.
The rules are simple, arrange all seven geometric pieces to match the presented puzzle silhouette. This can be harder than it sounds, and offers an entertaining bit of fun for a spare moment or a few hours.

"As casual as they come and as addictive as crack cappuccino"
What's New in Version 1.3.3
For the people who are complaining about there not being enough levels, this is just the lite version! I used to have this before I upgraded to the full version. Stop complaining about the level shortage! If you want more levels, then buy the full version! If you can't afford the full version, then stop complaining! Besides, this is free!
This app is amazing... I wish there were more puzzles on the free version but it's free and just like when you were in junior high!
Great time waster
I travel often! This is one of the apps I use often while I wait for my flight!
