6 Top Jigsaw Puzzle Apps for Android and iOS

Completing a jigsaw puzzle is easily one of the best things you can do to relax. Sorting through the pieces and figuring out where they all fit is oddly comforting. But if you're at work or on the go, you can't bring a physical jigsaw puzzle with you.

Luckily, there are quite a few jigsaw puzzle apps that'll keep you entertained wherever you are. Most of these apps have a daily puzzle you can complete, so you might even download more than one for some variety. Let's check out your options.

1. Jigsaw Puzzles for Adults

Jigsaw Puzzles for Adults comes with a daily free puzzle you can take advantage of as well as many other free puzzles and collections. If there's a specific collection of puzzles you want, you can buy a pack within the app.

But there's really no need to because of the plethora of free content available to you. Plus, you can also create puzzles from your own photos by uploading them to the app.

If you've missed a daily puzzle or you just downloaded the app and want to take advantage of all those free puzzles, you can do so from the Daily Puzzles tab. There's also a Collections tab that lets you sort puzzles by theme, like Food, Animals, Landmarks, or Flowers.

What makes HD Puzzle Games different is that it has more active events. There's actually an Events tab that lists out all of the current events.

An event in the HD Puzzle Games app consists of certain puzzle collections that are only available for a limited time and net you extra coins and rewards when completed. There are at least four events going on at one time, but usually more.

4. Magic Jigsaw Puzzles

Magic Jigsaw Puzzles is oriented horizontally, giving you a wider space to complete your puzzle. While there's no new free puzzle every day, there are plenty of available puzzles to choose from. And if you complete all the free puzzles, you can spend coins you earn in the app or real world cash.

Plus, this app also lets you upload your own pictures to make puzzles from.

One neat feature of this app is that it comes with relaxing music that plays in the background. If that isn't your thing, you can easily turn it off in the settings. But if your main goal in putting a puzzle together is to calm your mind and relax, the music is a nice touch.

Similar to the app above, there's relaxing music in this puzzle app that you can turn off or adjust the volume. There are a ton of other neat settings you can customize too, like showing piece outlines, changing the background, showing your time, and more.

Plus, there are plenty of goals to work towards, increasing the longevity of the app. There's a free puzzle to work on every day, many different puzzle collections that are completely free, and puzzle packs you can buy.

Though you probably won't need to purchase any packs for a while with all the available collections and the ability to upload photos to create your own custom puzzles.

6. Art Puzzle

Art Puzzle is a unique take on the classic jigsaw puzzle. All of the pieces still have their own specific home, but it doesn't look like a traditional jigsaw puzzle. Instead, the puzzle is mixed with an artistic, almost coloring book style.

Because there are so many different pieces, you complete the art puzzle in different phases. For example, on the first screen you see, there might only be space for seven pieces. When you find and place all seven pieces in their appropriate home, you'll see an animation that overlays the next set of pieces you need to find.

Once you've placed all your puzzle pieces, you'll see a cute animation play out. There are different collections you can complete or daily challenges you can take on. You can also complete any previous daily challenges if you want to.

Enjoy Some Well-Deserved Relaxation

With a puzzle app, you'll never be bored. Whether you're waiting in a doctor's office, killing time at work, or multitasking while bingeing a TV show, a jigsaw puzzle will relax your mind and give you a sense of accomplishment.

Of course, jigsaw puzzle apps aren't the only way to pass the time. There are ASMR apps, crossword puzzle apps, sudoku apps, and more. Though jigsaw puzzle apps offer nostalgia and they're something easy anyone can do.
