Nice mix of puzzles but the touch sensitivity to select a row or column is horrible. It makes it frustrating to the point where I don't use the app very often.More
Sometimes the interface is buggy. But enjoyable overall.More
Best free crosswords app I've come across. Controls are easy to use and there are so many puzzles. Haven't had to make a single in-app purchase either, and I've had the app for about a year and a half. Love it!More
It's great, but id like access to more of the puzzles that are resentMore
Great app. Functions pretty seamlessly and provides fun, intellectual crossword puzzles from a handful of good sources.More
Good until Windows10
I like the range of puzzles to choose from of varying difficulties. But when I upgraded to a Windows 10 phone, the touch screen no longer lined up with the puzzle - I have to touch three spaces below where I want to highlight. If I zoom in, I only have to touch two spaces below the desired block.More
This is a good app. I get to play crossword puzzles for freeMore
Best fun challenges!More
Very good interface. Easy to learn. Good puzzles!More
Pulls crosswords from a variety of sites. Allows you to save them for offline use. Saves your progress. Has several views, including a list view. Ads are unobtrusive. Very slick overall.More
