This has instantly jumped to my favorite puzzle app already. I already have Magic Puzzles, Puzzles HD, and Jigsaw Puzzle but this beats all three of them. At the moment you don't have quite as much variety with different puzzle options, but this app allows you to pick individual puzzles to buy instead of forcing pack on you if you choose. You can sort and store pieces on the table in different sections, add the solution image under the mat, and rotate it or adjust transparency, and you have access to far more options for the pieces in far more ways than you can on the other apps. You get a large selection of backgrounds that they don't charge for, and can change backbround music as well as modify your puzzle as you're working on it in far more ways than all the other apps.
There are IAPs obviously, but it's no worse than any JP app. I also like the images in this app better than the ones in any of the other JP apps.
This is a solid purchase if you like JPs at all.

Awesome, I was on my fence regarding the IAPs, but I have a lot of respect for the company so I'll bite.

I grabbed it also let's see if it's worth the $$. All the other puzzle apps I have played are all freemium. Worth a shot.

How do you earn more coins in-game? My 580 has not changed regardless of how many stars I earn on a puzzle.

This. That's a bummer. You effectively get what, 6 puzzles, and with what you have coin wise, you can maybe buy a pack of 7.

I will say that even with the quality of the app, $3 for 6 puzzles is a bit of a let down.

I was very interested in this til I found out you can't use your own pictures. Buying puzzles with virtual coins really turns me off as well. No purchase from me. I think the best jigsaw app out there is Join-It, although there's an annoying bug right now but you can work around it without much hassle at least.

Default Would be great if it worked!

Its a nice interface and may end up being the best jigsaw puzzle app out there even though you can't import your own photos. The problem for me at least is that it is completely broken. I can only do up to 60 piece puzzles without it crashing. Anything over that and it freezes and goes back to the home screen. They are already on version 1.2 so I suspect this thing wasn't ready for the market yet. Be warned! May be great down the road but completely broken now. Very disappointed as I was looking forward to tryin it out. On the positive, there are some great pictures from their store and it's really not that unreasonable to pay a little for them given the quality. The app itself (when functional) has a great interface for sorting and moving pieces around and for 4 or 5 bucks, you can get 5-6 puzzles. If you do 500 piece puzzles like me, that will keep you busy for quite a while...They aren't trying to hide anything with their pay model...
