Great App - I tried the free version and really liked it. With the additional puzzles added to the paid version, its a steal for the price. And with the capability to create your own puzzzles, you have an endless supply of puzzles to solve. For $2.99 I really can't quibble, but I wish pieces would not be placed on top of each other when selecting 'arrange at edge'. If there is no room, just leave the pieces in the middle.

Can't access new puzzles - I loved the free version of this app, so I bought the full version. However, it only allows me to play the puzzles that I've already done on the free app, and doesn't allow me to access any new puzzles...??? What a bust!!!

Review by Preacher 77

Fantastic App - If you like jigsaw puzzles, this is a MUST HAVE. Some puzzles come with it, and MANY more are available from the developer. You can also make your own from any .jpg file. YOU determine difficulty. You can determine the number of pieces from 4 to over 1,000. You can determine the number of “Fun Pieces”. It can make all pieces “right side up” or random rotation. It can sort pieces by shape, color or no sort. With the click of the mouse, you can pick up all edge pieces or center pieces or fun pieces. The picture can be displayed in the background or not shown. You may even select from 6 basic shapes. Puzzles may be reset and solved again with same or different parameters. It is all up to your choices. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!

Review by KLHANDY517

Great but... - I love this app. The puzzles are fun and they really keep your brain active. However, I played all the puzzles in the Jigsaw Galore Free first not knowing that the majority of puzzles in this collection were the same. The 50 puzzles that you receive with this set (not available in the free) are BEAUTIFUL!!! Also, I’ve had some issues creating my own puzzles on my MAC. I’m not sure if it’s an issue with the app itself or trouble with my settings. If you like jigsaws, it’s worth a buy!

Review by Mac User +

Jigsaw Galore is okay but has some problems! - This is a great game but I have a Mac and once I put all the puzzles together in a set I can’t do them again. There is directions to reset but it doesn’t work on the Mac. I hope they will fix this because I have like 20 different sets of puzzles that I would like to reset.

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!

Review by ~Bee

I LOVE it! - Mac_User: Reset does work very well on my Mac. I do it all the time, because I have real favorite beach and water scenes. Definitely works on a Mac. No Problem. I have not tried to make my own puzzles yet, but maybe this year, I’ll get to it. The developer, David Gray, is wonderful. He responds to emails about his app almost immediately, and has bailed me out of losig puzzles in a not-so-well-planned OS upgrade. I should have backed up my puzzle installers, but I forgot. I have a whole bunch of these puzzles, and I just love them. Beautiful, fun, and very easily tailored to different puzzle shapes, sizes, backgrounds, etc. It’s the best! I wish all apps were as well thought out and supported as this one is! It’s so easy and fun to go all over the world without leaving my house!
