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 😉

A YAHOO! User ,


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 this app on my iPhone and began solving some puzzles. I was instantly hooked from the start. Minutes later, I downloaded the app on my iPad. Now, I have the app on both devices.

Getting back to the app, 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 this app for a long time. Love it...LOVE IT!!! ❤️❤️❤️

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. The app 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.
