The New York Times Crossword As of December 31, 2018, we will no longer be supporting the Windows app for NYTimes Crossword. The Windows app will be removed from the Windows app store, and while it may continue to work as-is, it will no longer be updated or supported. We encourage users to visit and solve at nytimes.com/crosswords or to use one of our apps on the Google and iOS platforms at nytimes.com/crosswords/apps. Additional features on these platforms include stats, new day-of-week streaks, puzzle progress enhancements, autocheck for better solving, puzzle packs to try Midi 9x9 puzzles (in our mobile apps), and in 2019, leaderboards around the Mini crossword.
