Either double-tap on the open space in the puzzle or tap on the Info button when it appears after a few seconds of no interaction.
If you are lost trying to solve the puzzle you can see what the completed image should look like along with which pieces you have in the correct location. The hint can be displayed in one of two ways. Either bring up the menu and select "Show Hint" or simply hold you finger down on one of the puzzle pieces for 2 seconds.

When you complete a puzzle the number of moves and time is compared against the top ten for the same puzzle size. If you have done better then you are asked to enter your name for the high score list. This screen remembers the last entered name so you don't need to type it over each time you do better.
This puzzle provides many options to configure the puzzle. Bring up the settings by showing the menu and tapping "Settings".
First you select what image you want to use as the puzzle image. You can use the camera (if available) to take a new picture and use that image or you may select from any of your existing images stored on your iPhone or iPod touch. If you'd rather use puzzle pieces with letter, numbers, or symbols then select the appropriate choice in the lower half of the screen.
The next setting is the size of the puzzle. Select the number of rows and columns. The more rows and columns, the harder the puzzle will be to complete.
By default the empty square is the bottom right puzzle piece. But for some images it may be desirable to pick a different corner or any other piece. This can also provide additional challenge by selecting an empty location at random.
The movement of puzzle pieces is animated. If you are going for speed you may wish to turn off this animation to make solving the puzzle go even faster. If you are just relaxing and enjoying the day you may wish to make the animation take a bit longer.
