Usually great, but not this updat...


I absolutely love the Jumble app, and until today my biggest complaint has been wishing for more frequent updates, since even doing only one puzzle a day meant a couple of weeks between running out of puzzles and the latest update. But this morning I ran into my first serious mistake since first starting to use the app. In the bonus round, the given letters were: YAANWY. After a very frustrating time where nothing worked, I finally gave up and asked for the solution. Supposedly the word I couldn't figure out was UNTOLD! Something is definitely wrong with this picture! One major mistake in many months of use isn't such a big deal, I suppose, but now I don't feel the game is as reliable as it used to be.



I have played Jumble since I was young. It was in the "Peach section" of the Toledo Blade every day. Then I found a store that sold Jumble books, and bought new books from the magazine rack in the grocery store too. This app isn't exactly like the others. Instead of guessing four words with special letters to find the secret word or phrase, you guess one word (with cartoon hint) and you have the opportunity to unjumble Bonus words. It's relaxing, and keeps my mind fresh. I have to fight to control the urge to do several Jumbles a day, but they run out too soon & I will have to wait for new ones to be added? I give Jumble five stars because it's so enjoyable.

Not your father's Jumble


I don't dislike this app. But, if you are expecting the Jumble that appears in the newspaper, this is not that! The traditional version has several words whose "circled letters" provide the letters to use in solving the puzzle related to the drawing. This app has essentially cut out those pesky early scrambles and gone straight to the final picture related puzzle. If that works for you, then by all means give this app a go. Personally, I find it a bit disappointing to have this abbreviated version.
--- After solving many puzzles over time, I still have the reservation listed above, but I have increased my rating to 4 stars based on my continuing enjoyment of this app.
