    "I used to hate jigsaw puzzles a few years back because pieces always go missing. Now I dont have to worry about any of that because its all on a phone and you cant lose pieces unless you lose your phone"

    "I visit my grandma pretty often, and she's always a huge lover of the oldies in relation to games. She likes jigsaw puzzles, jacks, etc. I got her this app on an iPad she had, and set it down to help solve puzzles with her. Now, she is a puzzle wiz. Within only a few minutes (talking like 20) she can solve a good 200-300 piece puzzle. The "expert" level of puzzles is nice for the normal puzzle solver, but for the veteran it's small fries. The biggest thing I wish this app had was an even higher level, or one where you could set how many tiles you wanted. Overall, she still really enjoyed this app and it was fun building puzzles with it. "

    "This REALLY helps! I was forgetting things a lot and I was worried it was some form of dementia, but honestly I think I just wasn't used my brain enough. When I started playing with Lumosity, I found that I was thinking a lot sharper than I used to and it REALLY helped me out."

    "Sudoku is a classic puzzle game that will challenge you mentally! Not every game is the same, and that's why it has been so popular for so long. Stuck on a long flight?
