4, Work your way towards the corners
Staying in the corners is always a good strategy. Keeping tiles grouped into the corners works the best. Bring new tiles into the middle area when you can, and then you can swipe them to the corners to combine. When you have to move out from one corner, try to re-organize the board and try to occupy another corner. Working in the corners makes a shift in strategy a lot easier.
