Fantastic crossword app, with only 1 major flaw This is a great crossword app. My one and only complaint is the giant keyboard that the app uses as a default. It takes up way too much screen real estate, and causes me to not be able to see the entire puzzle on the screen. I would like either a keyboard size option (small, medium, large), or the ability to use the phones default keyboard. Otherwise this app works great with my NY Times crossword subscription.
Excellent app! This is, simply, a fine, five-star crossword app. I like the change-direction key; other apps use the spacebar and Enter keys, but it's easier (for me) to click a dedicated button. I've contacted the developers with questions/suggestions and rec'd a response the next day. Not the only crossword app I use (I admit it: I'm a xword junkie), but my default app. In sum, easy to use, good collection of puzzle links, and helpful devs.
2nd best to Shortyz? Actually, since Shortyz adopted the Material (aka Migraine!) Style look, I'm trying out other apps (can't stand that glaring bright screen). This one is a pretty good runner up. What Shortyz does better imho is the downloading and archive management; but they can share the same archive :-) The only bug I've found in this app so far is that it crashes when you scroll down through a "too large" archive, at the same point every time. I'm suspecting that some list structure was hard-sized to 512, or something like that -- are you listening, devels? I quite like the "clues each side" layout, works well on a larger tablet in landscape mode. If Shortyz never offers a night mode option, I may switch to this app for solving, much easier on the eyes.
The best of the crossword puzzle apps I've tried a bunch of the crossword puzzle apps and this one works the best for me. It works well on my Note and allows me to download NYTimes puzzles (via subscription.)
Issue with NYT puzzles? I still love this app: it's the best crossword app, IMO. However, it looks like there is a problem with the links to the 6-week-delayed puzzles from the New York Times this week. Starting on Monday, 8/3/2015, the links point to the *Sunday* from 8/2. Both Monday and Tuesday behave this way. Thanks again!
Very recent trouble NY Times puzzles sometimes freeze on me... I can't add or change letters. Any thoughts? I'm going to try uninstalling and reinstalling. I LOVE the app!!
