App description: Tile Game Classic brings the timeless sliding puzzle into a new, modern age. Play from anywhere on your iPhone in Today view in Notification Center - even when your phone is locked!

Select, shuffle, GO!

Taking inspiration from macOS's Dashboard's Tile Game widget, Tile Game Classic lets you experience a classic game, but now on iOS.

Choose from the 3x3, 4x4, or the fiendishly tricky 5x5 grid, and one of three photos - or choose your own. The photo you choose will be split up into multiple pieces which are then randomly shuffled. Then you have to set out rearranging it - how quickly can you manage it?!

Each tile moves with one tap - the controls are one of the easiest things you will ever learn, but the skill which is required to solve the puzzle will not be. Are you able to think two, three, four (and more!) moves ahead?

1. Open the app and select your grid size and image
2. Add the Tile Game widget in Today view by swiping down from the top of the screen, scrolling down and tapping 'Edit'
3. Tap the 'Show More' button on the widget
4. Tap the image to shuffle the pieces, and again to stop
5. Have fun!

In memoriam, Dashboard.app: gone, but never forgotten.
Tile Game Classic is also available on macOS.

Weve just finished our new app for both iOS (and macOS, too) - 'Tile Game Classic'. Essentially, it is a playable sliding puzzle game in a Notification Center widget. It was inspired by the Dashboard widget first released with Mac OS X Tiger in 2005. Seeing how Apple seem to be abandoning Dashboard in favour of Notification Center, we thought it was only right it should have a tile game too!

Tile Game Classic is $0.99 on the App Store (priced accordingly in other territories). Feel free to contact me here or through our contact info on iTunes or on our website if you have any questions.
