Loved it ever since childhood!

Update: could you please add a feature to shuffle the letters in the 4-word puzzle? Say, by making the red and yellow arrow that pulls down all the letters into a “shuffle” button when no letters have been selected? —— I used to solve Jumble just to p*ss off my uncle (just kidding)!!! There were puzzles that he would be stuck on for days but I could not solve them because he would hide the newspaper. I started copying them onto a piece of paper, solving them and telling him the final answer. Irked him to no end, but we began to have a mutual respect for each other. He then started sitting by me and we would solve them together! Good times! I wish there were a way to go back and do all the bonus puzzles that I skipped over. Even though solving 4 words only gives you one point, it's still fun and gives your brain a much needed workout 😉

ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!!!

On some days at work, I sometimes find the original JUMBLES puzzles in the comic section of the PLAIN DEALER newspaper and I found some of them very challenging and fun to do. I had no idea that there was a JUMBLES app for the iPhone and the iPad. I first downloaded JustJumble on my iPhone and began solving some puzzles. I was instantly hooked from the start. Minutes later, I downloaded JustJumble on my iPad. Now, I have JustJumble on both devices. Getting back to JustJumble , JUMBLES is a fantastic app to play, because not only this is a fun puzzle to play, but it can be challenging and encourages me to do some thinking. Some solved answers are funny, too! This is a great app for everyone to play. To the creators of this fantastic JUMBLES app: please continue to come up with newer puzzles (I have such a long way to go, though). I plan to be playing with JustJumble for a long time. Love it...love it...LOVE IT!!! ❤️❤️❤️

Responsive developers! App is fixed!

I’ve loved doing jumble puzzles from the newspaper since childhood, long before smartphones. I was elated to find JustJumble, which is a perfect adaptation of those. Yes, it’s simplified, in that you don’t HAVE to unscramble the four words to get the letters for the main anagram, but those words are there as the “bonus”, so it’s complete. I’d been leisurely playing for months, and the last update broke JustJumble . I was on level 290, all bonus words solved, but the update before today’s made JustJumble unable to open on my phone. I was crushed. I didn’t delete it, but didn’t expect a response so quickly. I retract my previous 1-star review and change it back to what it deserves, 5. I’d give it 6 if I could, 5 for being the perfect Jumble app and one for responsive developers. THANK YOU!!!!

Daddy’s “Little” Girl

Well, I wasn’t quite so little, but together we worked it and it was OUR time together. I graduated from Abilene Christian University, moved back to Dallas, taught 5th grade, and when I saw the look on their faces, I knew it was time to pull down the screen and give them a break by trying to be the first to work on the JUMBLE. They had earned a break and there wasn’t one who turned it down. I think they enjoyed this brain game more than recess, and as soon as they were satisfied they had the right answer, they surrounded my desk to see who got it right first! So now I miss my fifth graders and at 70, I still play it everyday with other teacher friends. Love it, highly recommend it, but there’s a warning, if you start it, you won’t be able to give it up!!! —Crazy Gran (70!)

Jumble Addict

I first got hooked on Jumble in the Post Newspaper. Many years ago I bought a 365 day Jumble calendar. I think I have every Jumble book that has been printed. When I got my first iPad 8 years ago I was excited that there was a Jumble app in its original format and very disappointed when its developers stopped updating to accommodate upgraded iOS systems. I continued to periodically check JustJumble Store and was pleasantly surprised to find this present app. Although not in its original format it does have both components and gives you the option to unscramble the individual words if you want to. I have completed over 1000 puzzles and am now on the latest updates. Developers are great and immediately respond to messages that are sent to them.

Jumble Memories!

Thank you, thank you, Jeff & David for JustJumble! You guys are awesome! I have to parrot the words of the “Absolutely Fantastic” reviewer, A Yahoo user, bc that’s exactly how I feel, too! I have always loved doing the jumble puzzles with my elderly mother. We would have competitions to see who could guess them the fastest! Lots & lots of giggles & laughter! Now that she’s gone, these little puzzles mean even more to me! Many, many happy memories doing crosswords, crypto-quotes, & JUMBLES with my adorable Mom! Thank you so much again for making your genius available to us on JustJumble! Blessings! Sally K😊

Usually great, but not this updat...

I absolutely love the Jumble app, and until today my biggest complaint has been wishing for more frequent updates, since even doing only one puzzle a day meant a couple of weeks between running out of puzzles and the latest update. But this morning I ran into my first serious mistake since first starting to use JustJumble . In the bonus round, the given letters were: YAANWY. After a very frustrating time where nothing worked, I finally gave up and asked for the solution. Supposedly the word I couldn't figure out was UNTOLD! Something is definitely wrong with this picture! One major mistake in many months of use isn't such a big deal, I suppose, but now I don't feel the game is as reliable as it used to be.

Not Exactly Jumble Classic

I really enjoyed playing Jumble Classic developed by UCLICK LLC. Unfortunately, that app was not updated. Just Jumble eliminated the 4 word jumbles that certain letters would be used to solve the cartoon jumble. I was disappointed that Just Jumble went straight to the cartoon jumble. I contacted the developer to see if they would add the 4 jumbles before the final cartoon jumble and was informed they felt this made it easier for most people. Too bad those of us that prefer more of a challenge are left out. I suggested creating another app more like Jumble Classic but it did not appear this would happen as it was indicated Jumble Classic did not do well. I gave this 3 stars as the cartoon puzzle is fun but I would give it 5 stars if they make this more like Jumble Classic. Sometimes change is good. I’m not convinced this was a good change. If you are looking for a Jumble Word game more like Jumble Classic, I found one called Jumble Pun. The difference between Jumble Pun and Jumble Classic is Pun does not have a cartoon picture, however it does have the 4 Word jumbles with certain letters that are used to solve the final “Pun” puzzle.

Two thumbs up

I love the puzzles!! I do them on my iPhone & in the paper each day for the last few years. I do them on my phone first thing in the morning (gives my brain a jump start for the day) and do the one in the paper during my lunch hour with coworkers. It gives us an escape from our work and to ‘use another part of our brains’. Then I will do more in the evening after dinner & dishes. Love them! However I feel it takes too long for more puzzles to become available. I still give this a 2 thumbs up—keep giving us good puzzles 👍👍!!

More please!

I have been an avid Jumble fan all my life, my mother got me started on the puzzle when I was in school. During the last few years of her life my mom and I did the Jumble together, it was great mental stimulation for her and a small joy we shared daily. Even with The advancing effects of Lewy Body Dementia my mom remained a pro at solving the daily puzzles and continues to be a legacy of comfort for me. Only problem is I have on several occasions completed all available puzzles - please update more often! I think you guys have underestimated the significance your little word game holds in the lives of so many people and fans like me. Thanks and keep them coming! Jeff Theis

Too few puzzles

I’ve reviewed JustJumble before. A couple of years ago, actually. My complaint then is my complaint today. When there is an update, there are not very many puzzles in it. I usually complete them in a few days, then it’s three or four months before the next update. While I do enjoy the puzzles, there are just too few of them per update. I wish they would either increase the number of puzzles per update, or increase the frequency of updates. UPDATE: The update just came out a couple of days ago. It’s been several months since the last one, and there are only 73 new puzzles in the update. I guess our comments are irrelevant to these folks.

Just Jumble

This is such an enjoyable game to have on your phone. It’s just like the newspaper Jumble, and you don’t have to wait for another edition of the paper to play again. I have to make myself slow down some days, it is truly that much fun. Get JustJumble. It keeps you thinking and is a great way to pass a few minutes of time when needed. I’ve never been any place that my phone would not play JustJumble. You’re experience may be different than mine, but It never has used large amounts of data on my phone. I can’t say enough good about the Just Jumble app game.

Jumbled fun

For many years I have enjoyed playing the print version in various newspapers. JustJumble is basically the same except the order in which the puzzle is presented is “jumbled”. In JustJumble you are first given the cartoon clue and letters to solve it. Then as a bonus you have the option to un-jumble 4 words. The bonus section has a timer you can hide or show and challenge yourself to see how quick you can solve it. I find all the words to be common everyday English words, but still at times, a real challenge to figure out. Thanks Jeff and David!

Game is fine...updates are slooooow.

I normally play one game a day as part of my "keep my brain active" routine. It's simple and fun and sometimes challenging. However, even at one game per day, I'll run out of new games and have to wait weeks before an update occurs and new games are added. I wish new puzzles would be added more frequently. Edit: Once again, after playing one game per day, I've exhausted the available games and now need to wait for the next update. With the thousands of Jumble puzzles written over the years, you'd think they'd be able to adapt many of them to JustJumble version much more quickly.

Fun Jumble Puzzles

Fun punny Jumbles. Difficulty level varies quite a bit. Some days you can just look at it and see the answer. Others you (I) can spend 10-15 minutes working on. I do wish there were more frequent updates. I do a puzzle a day and work to keep the streak alive. Often have to break the streak because I’ve run out of puzzles before the next update (set of new puzzles) is available. Otherwise, a fun game that often provides a challenge.

Brain/mind aid in muscle building!

I enjoy working on these puzzles every night before bed. I play sometimes during the day also. For me, at almost 80, I find the puzzles help me stay mentally functional. I enjoy the challenge of finding the answers as soon as possible. Sometimes it may take days for me to find the answer, but I never give up! Thank you so much. I do enjoy word puzzles and I look forward, as I said, to playing every night!!!👍🏾👏🏽👏🏽😁🤓🥰

Absolutely love all your puzzles

I have to do at least one every day just like when I used to do them in the daily paper. I especially enjoy the “play on words” and don’t like to have to “ask for help”. Some of the sayings bring back family memories, and my son claims that he remembers my using some of those exact expressions when he was young. ....And I remember my dad and my grandmother using some of the expressions when I was little. Brings back wonderful memories. Thanks!

It's nice, but...

Decent app if you like Jumble puzzles, but I'm not really a fan of the setup. The four words that use certain letters for the cartoon bonus are relegated to a separate round, and you have to solve the cartoon first to get to the word jumbles. This makes it easier than it should be to go through all of the content, even with updates, by simply skipping the bonus rounds. This is either a plus or a minus, depending on your taste; I didn't like it. I would recommend Giant Jumble Crosswords, which are much more true to the newspaper format, over this, but draw your own conclusions. It's not a disaster, but it could be better.

Recycled and Don't Understand Points

An advertisement for JustJumble says, “This FREE app has added puzzles 18 times and now contains over 1,600 of the best Jumbles ever created! And the answer to each of these puzzles is a smile about to happen.” Well since I am on puzzle 2060, all I am getting now is recycled Jumbles. :-( Also, I don't quite understand the point system. Why do you get FOUR coins (points) for solving one puzzle with pictures and clues, but only ONE coin for solving four more challenging Jumbles? In that "bonus round" you get four jumbled words and have to answer all four with no clues for one coin? That seems rather odd to me.

Fun from decades ago

My Grandma and I worked the Jumble together during breakfast from the San Francisco Tribune when I was a kid in the 1950’s and 60’s. We competed for time “who could do it faster!” I learned to love the clues and puns and to exercise my spacial brain skills especially the larger puzzles on Sundays. Grandma Daisy lived to be 102 and did the Jumble every morning with her cup of hot chocolate. Now here I am on my IPhone playing Jumble for relaxation during my busy work day. It always amuses me and comforts me. Thank you for this gift. Dena

No fumble with this app Jumble

Word Jumble app is good clean and clever fun. Comics look like they came straight off of paper, and phrases and clues as fill-in-blanks for word jumble is good challenge. Bonus round, is random collection of words, no relationship to each other, and possible AI to add more challenging words as you increase in successive success. //I’ve not played any other mobile app game as long as Word Jumble. //It’s a consistent challenge and racking points that bring me back. Feels like it’s helping me with random challenge, and linking words to subject. Designers keep updating repository, adding some flavor to game face or features as years have past, but stay devoted to original concept, which I appreciate. JustJumble and challenge has become part of my morning routine to wake the brain. Thank you to Jeff & David for sharing your creative comic strips, with quips and word wise game clips.

Better Than The Newspaper Version

This was always the one thing I looked for when we use to get the newspaper. Times have changed so much that now we only get the paper on weekends or we have to get it from a neighboring town that’s about 100 miles away. It’s great to still be able to play Jumble still. It’s not even in our weekend paper. Newspaper businesses are not going to last, sadly. Everything has gone digital and it’s hurt our Country with job losses. When I was a teenager I had 200 daily customers and in the summer I did the morning route and an evening route. Now, only adults can deliver the newspaper in most areas. I lived in Norfolk VA. We had The VA Pilot and The Ledger Star. The Ledger Star was the morning edition and it stopped in the 80’s. But The Virginia Pilot is still daily delivery. Now I’m in Central Texas and the paper is thin and about to go under. It’s just unbelievable how much things have changed in the last three decades. I am so happy that the guys at Jumble made this transition as well! Texasbear
