DIY Puzzle allows you to create your own unique puzzles using the photos stored on your iPhone. Family photos, travel scenes, pictures of your dog or mother-in-law: the possibilities are endless!

You can select the difficulty of the puzzle based on the number of pieces-- 4x4, 5x5, 8x8--as well as the color of the lines. The title page will change according to the puzzles you create.

Great puzzle for keeping kids entertained on long car rides--simply select a favorite photo and difficulty level appropriate for your child's age. No more "Are we there yet?" problems!!

Therapeutic for adults, too. Have a fight with the boss? Now you can literally "rearrange his face!"
