London, England (PRWEB UK) 30 July 2012
Familiar with the London boroughs? Not just their names, but matching them to the right edges of the capital? Ever thought beyond simply GOOGLING specific Olympic sports to locate their corresponding six host venues?
Created by a retired Haringey and Waltham Forest school teacher, the London Jigsaw App is an intelligent solution to all of the above. Catherine MacArthur’s ingenious roots date back to her teaching days, when she searched diligently for puzzles for her school. But her endeavours took an inclement turn when she was unable to source the right type of product, and her subsequent illness in the late 90’s. During this enforced sabbatical, Catherine’s zeal for puzzles returned and the result was a prototype of the map of England sculptured from wood. The release of the iPad in 2010 infused life into her simple wooden jigsaw and in Jan 2012, she finally decided to take the plunge.
Designed for the iPhone and iPad and launched just in time to jump-start the 2012 Olympics in London, the exclusive London Jigsaw App is available in lite and full versions.
The lite version is dominated by the Boroughs, with a choice of 1 of the 5 different maps for users to play along, including London’s Olympic venues and their respective sports, London’s rivers and canals, London’s tourist attractions, London’s Boroughs (33) and London’s parks and open spaces.
The full version of the app enhances the playability to a higher level of intensity, and includes all the 5 maps, giving users an opportunity to explore the app in 50 unique variants. The pieces of the puzzle emit a voice when hovered over, which is a great addition those learning English, but also for those getting a grasp of the pronunciation of the nomenclature.
The user friendly interface allows users to navigate the jigsaw seamlessly, with a choice to record gameplay stats within the game centre. The learning mode of the full version provides a great learning tool for newcomers to London, and is also a great educational tool for those yearning to unveil London's hidden treasures.
As unique as it is engaging, London Jigsaw is available now in the Apple App Store.
