Love the fabulous puzzles. Just the vast number of them is amazing. One small nitpick - and only because I am a huge fan of the original Teazal Cryptic app which has a feature missing in this one: When you place your finger over a letter on the keyboard, the selected letter does not pop up as it does in the old app, so when a wrong letter gets detected it cannot be corrected by sliding around till you get it right! Just annoyed that something that was so well thought out got undone!

If you like cryptic crosswords, this is for you. Several free puzzles, and more to buy if you want. No popup ads that insist you watch them before you can get back to the puzzle. I have been able to give feedback by email, and there has been a quick response each time. Not for everyone, but just because you have never done cryptic crosswords before doesn't mean they are not for you. If you enjoy wordplay, you should try them.

Very enjoyable and a good brain stretcher. There's an option to check how many words or letters you've got wrong, and a second that highlights where they are. I like how you can decide which level of help you need (if any.) All in all, a solid, well put together app. There's enough free content to keep you going for a while but I happily paid to unlock the rest since I don't see myself getting bored of these anytime soon.
