    Check out Spin Puzzle (www.spinpuzzle.com) . Don’t let the screen caps fool you, it’s not a slider puzzle. Great iphone-centric design, really puts the device’s features to good use.

    I want to mention 3 great puzzles that kept me busy for several hours:
    — Lasers by Brisk Mobile
    — Cassiopeia by Pocket Minutes
    — Blocked by Joel Rosenberg

    These puzzles were recomended by Dorothy at Appchatter.com

    I also recommend these puzzle games for the iPhone:
    Trism (Abit slower paced, but very unique take on iPhone’s capabilities)
    Tatonic (The nearest to Lumines as we’ll ever get, but has its own flavour as the number of atoms required to join up before being removed increases over time. Absorbing stuff)
    Enigmo (One of the first games and its a very interesting concept.)
    Trace (Not strictly a puzzler, but interesting that you literally draw the solutions yourself!)
