My subscription is through my google account, and there is no way to login using google in this app. Seriously, how was this missed? I'm a software dev, and I know third party identity provider integration is not that hard. My subscription is apparently worth less because I subscribed with my google account... Edit: Thank you for the reply explaining progress in releasing fix and apologizing for the oversight. My tone was a bit of an overreaction :). I will also remove or increase my rating once I see a fix if you notify me
Good-quality app and crosswords but NYT's aggressive monetization is probably going to push me to cancel my subscription. After paying for a monthly subscription to the main NYTimes app, I also pay for the crosswords, which isn't a big deal until you get to the "packs" of puzzles – microtransactions within a subscription app. There's only so much money you can justify for a crossword.
IF YOUR CROSSWORDS SUBSCRIPTION IS TIED TO YOU GOOGLE ACCOUNT, you can use the app by going to Log In, enter your Gmail, then use the Forgot Password option. This is a pretty big oversight by the devs.
I would love to actually be able to use the app on my phone. I created my NYTimes account by signing into my Google account but the app doesn't give you the option to log in this way. It asks you for your email and password, but I don't think I technically have a password since it's just linked to my Google account. Edit: If you're stuck in this situation, you can just reset your password and log in with your new info. I can use the app now and it's a great way to kill time while also using your brain. Thanks to Daniel for the assist.
Terrible app - very slow to respond, and boxes are way too small. Please realign with the Stand Alone Crossword app so I can continue to enjoy the excellent NYT crossword (which I pay for) in the beautiful app they developed.
I just paid for a mini mania $4.+ and none of the mini manias work. For another puzzle I was billed twice. No explanation and can't reach NYT Crossword website. I am going to dispute these charges unless I can excess what I paid for or get an explanation.. You do not deserve any stars.
Thanks for continuing to test our new app, here's what's new in version 1.1.1 (348)
Play through 20+ categories of crosswords with the help of pics, emojis & text!
One of the Best word search game! Simple, fun & addictive! Multi-languages!
Attention puzzle lover's: with the Crossword app you won't get bored anymore.
