As a bibliophile, I love the smell of a new book, the cracking sound it makes when I first open it, and the feel of the paper on my fingertips as I turn the pages. So I was surprised to find how much I enjoyed reading on my Kindle. I feel similarly about jigsaw puzzles. I love the ritualistic order of working a jigsaw puzzle. Turning all of the pieces right-side up, searching for edge pieces, working the frame, sorting interior pieces by color. Likewise, I was surprised that I was able to do most of those things in an electronic jigsaw puzzle app.
There are two things I don't like because they significantly decrease the solving time. First, the pieces are always in the correct positional direction. So you don't ever need to turn individual pieces to fit them. Second, when you fit a puzzle piece correctly, the entire puzzle temporarily darkens to indicate that the piece is correct, which sort of defeats the purpose.
There are several features that I really liked...
I have purchased, and played, many of the different jigsaw puzzle apps developed by PuzzleBoss. Thanks to recent updates play is practically seamless on the Kindle Fire HD 8.9. A few weeks ago the app did not utilize the full screen reducing the playing field by almost one third. That issue has been resolved so if that kept you from buying, or playing, any of the PB jigsaw puzzles then give them another try, you'll be glad you did. The Canyon set, like the others in the line, is for the most part, comprised of ten beautiful, sharp, colorful photos. In additional to the expected Grand Canyon, the images go beyond what one would traditionally consider canyons. I guess a picture of a bridge secured in the side of a canyon is still a canyon. Of all of the different sets I have purchased the photos in this surprised me with the choices. You definitely won't feel as though you are just putting the same picture together repeatedly. This was also the first set of puzzles which appears to...
So far, this is the best jigsaw puzzle app that I have used. The pictures are beautiful and render quickly. Also, I really like that it saves everything just as I left it (whether I formally closed the program or not).
I have just a couple suggested changes. First, puzzles that I worked in the old format (which I preferred) have changed to the new format --why? Second, it would be nice if all the pieces were initially in the screen area instead of having to shift outside the edges to find all of them. Third, it would be nice to know the names of the places in the pictures.
The new changes that hide the settings in a drop down box are SO much better...thank you!
All in all, it really is an excellent (and addicting) app.
