Easy to use, lots of puzzles!

Great layout and a large database of puzzles

I'm enjoying playing the crosswords. The puzzles are interesting, and as a novice, the hints are just helpful enough. My only issue is it's hard to find a puzzle in the archive which will work. If they can resolve that, I'll give it a fifth star.

One of the few crossword apps that offers unlimited puzzles for free!!!

Challenging! But not too much. Very enjoyable.

Amazing App! The update improved the speed and smoothness of the interface.

The best crossword app I've ever seen, either for Windows Phone or for Apple iOS. Lots of sources for puzzles and a variety of types, and all for free, with optional payment for more. I love this app.

6/22/15 Received latest fix and problems seem resolved. Changed rating to 4 Stars. I just reevaluated this app. The update installed today broke the app. I used to be able to choose older puzzles from the Wall Street Journal. Now all I get is the most recently completed puzzle or the current week's puzzle which I have not yet completed. Of the 750 WSJ puzzles from 2001 to date, I can no longer access any of them. I had worked my way to March 2005 and was looking forward to continuing through all them m Please fix this and if you can add a way to select a date to go to, it would be appreciated. Not all the sources for puzzles are available. BIGGEST COMPLAINT: This app sucks the life out of my battery! Battery drain goes up to 40%/hour!! I can't use the app unless the phone is plugged in.

I love this app. It gives me so many options for crosswords and its virtually unlimited.

Love the library of puzzles. One thing I would like to see is an indication when searching though the archive that a certain puzzle has been completed (rather than having to load each puzzle and check).
