Some user reviews:

Please read the FAQ from the iJewels support site, before contacting for support!
*) As of Feb 23rd 2011, with Jewels v1.91
**) The game has always been called "Jewels", but as there was already an app by the same name on the App Store, the iOS-version is therefore called "iJewels".
What's New in Version 1.5
• IMPROVED: Optimized textures for quicker loading and better runtime performance. The game should start up a bit quicker now. :)
• UPDATED: Updated various SDKs.
In version 1.4:
• IMPROVED: High resolution graphics on iPad. When running in the 2x-mode on iPad, most of the graphics are now in hi-res (apart from few menu screens & settings). Note that this requires iOS 4.1 to be installed. With iOS 3.2 the game works as before the update.
Remember to rate each update separately. Thanks to all the players and especially thanks for the ★★★★★-reviews! So far, iJewels has been downloaded 3.4 million times (as of Feb 23rd 2011)! So again: Thank you!

Love this app
I started playing Bejeweled back on black and white PDA's. Loved it and spent way too much time playing it.
The last several years Bejeweled got a little cocky with its game, and in my opinion lost what I liked about it.
Then a few years ago, i found IJewels. I love this game. It's what Bejeweled started out being. In my opinion this game is fun, relaxing, and an excellent game.
I play it when I'm listening to books on tape or waiting for someone, or in a drs office with my mother, or to relax at the end of the day. If I'm chewing on a concern, I start playing this in endless mode, and my mind relaxes enough to think through solutions or options.
Hats of to the developers for a great game! I love the game and them for doing such a great job on it.
Very fun game
My friend showed me this game a couple of weeks ago and now I'm hooked. It's so much fun that I have a hard time putting it down. However, I'm very frustrated because it takes an unusually long time for my score to be submitted. This issue causes the game to freeze and I have to close the app, wait for a few minutes and then re-open it to play another game. Please fix this issue ASAP so I can play even longer.
It's a great game with good graphics. I like the different play modes. Different types of games allows me to choose depending on what mood I'm in, whether I want a quick game or just to play until I can't anymore.
The only issue I have is the two different green stones make it a little challenging to match. I wish the blue-green one was more visually different, like an orange or something.
