Frequently Asked Questions

We rely on the income from ads to maintain and develop the site (find out more about ads on Jigidi here).

If you find the ads too distracting, you can choose to remove them all by purchasing a Jigidi Plus membership for your profile.

When you become a Jigidi Plus member, you'll enjoy the completely ads-free Jigidi experience. Also, you directly support Jigidi, and thereby help us be as free as possible to make Jigidi even better every day.

We’re afraid you can't - we have removed the link to the Jigidi app from the puzzle player.

The reason for this is that Apple has made it harder for us to know when to show the link and when not to. Showing the link only makes sense when a puzzler is using an iPad and has the Jigidi app installed - in all other situations a click on the link will result in an error.

But, here come the good news:

The website is now fully functional on iPads and other mobile devices, so the need for a native app is no longer there. Therefore, the Jigidi iPad app is going to be retired someday in the future. We will keep it working for a while but do not plan to make any updates on the platform before retiring it all together.
