    I have heard both are great games,but which is the best? Price is not a factor, but I want only one. Can anyone help me?

    Do you usually like timed or untimed games better?

    I have both, and I find that Drop 7 is more fun. It's "timed" and you need to move quickly. I get less use out of Gem Spinners. It has great reviews, but as far as relaxed "matching" games go, it's not one of my favorites.

    try them free

    My vote is for Gem Spinner. But you don't have to choose blindly. Try the free version of Gem Spinner and see if you like it (I'm not sure whether drop 7 has a free version). And Gem Spinner does have both timed and untimed modes. On the higher levels you have to go quickly. But on all levels once you meet the goal you get a sort of free period, which is still timed, but no consequence for losing. I like gem spinner because you can zone out while you play, even though you're still thinking -- thinking about numbers (sudoku, drop7) is more like hard thinking for me, while matching and moving shapes in gem spinner is relaxing thinking.

    Erm, I don't think TouchArcade is big on piracy.

    If you have a promo code from the dev, you can get it for free if you´re in the US. If you´re planning to steal the game, you´re on the wrong forum. We don´t like stealing.
     
  10. FAIL.

    My vote is Gem Spinner. It's different enough than the average match 3 to keep things interesting and varied, and I like that about it.

    Drop7 is one of the most refreshing games i've played and one I play often. Wish they'd add an online leaderboard to it though. You can't go wrong with Drop7 imo.

    Yeah, at first it looks like yet another "Bejeweled Wannabe" but the whole aspect of having to manipulate and clear the pieces the gems are stored in is pretty cool as well as it's fairly in depth scoring system with bonuses like "Precision Spin".

    To me, Drop7 is the best strategy game on the iPhone, period.
    This game is so unique, complex and addicting. Trully love it.
