Origami Without the Mess

Who says you need paper to enjoy a puzzling Origami game. The Let's Fold app gives users a chance to create more than 50 very cool and different characters through seven different themes. Because there's no need for paper the process couldn't be simpler. The app uses one-touch controls and you will be working to earn a certificate of mastery. Each time you finish a character you'll be awarded a certificate which you can share with all your friends. The developer has plans to add more states, chapters, and even the ability to print off the characters so you can fold them on a real piece of paper if you prefer.

This one was recently updated to feature unlimited hints, and a new theme and characters. The app has 4.5 out of five stars from users with comments that are generally very positive.

Using the App

As soon as you launch the app you'll be able to scroll through the themes and choose which one you want to play. You will need to unlock each character in order and complete it before the next one becomes available. The way it works is that you are shown which way you need to fold the paper which is done by dragging your finger across the screen. The instructions are simple enough but that doesn’t mean the follow through is easy. It takes plenty of practice, patience, and a steady finger to complete these characters. You can always redo or undo folds plus you can turn the music on or off. You can always tap on the light bulb button for a hint.
