JigZone posts a new puzzle every day. Registered users of the site receive the puzzle of the day by email, although they have the option of unsubscribing from these emails. JigZone members can upload their own photos to use as puzzles, compete with friends and configure the daily puzzle. After uploading a photo as a puzzle, members can send it as an email postcard or use it on a website.
JigZone puzzles are between six and 247 pieces. The user selects the size of the puzzle. Each puzzle has a timer that tracks how long it takes the user to complete it. To pause the timer, the user clicks on it.
Puzzle pieces are always aligned correctly, so the site doesn't have a rotation feature. Pieces are sometimes located underneath other pieces. The user reveals the lower piece when he moves the top piece or shuffles the pieces.
