Some clues are in my range, maybe a bit difficult but can be worked out with a little time. Some are harder but have a really good clue, and I have learned something for the next time I encounter one like it. There are a few that I don't think I would have ever solved (for example, because the answer is a British turn of phrase). All said, this is a great bargain. I used to pay this price for one magazine with only one or two Cryptics. It's great to have so many here in my phone.

Nice app with some relatively easy beginner-level puzzles. As someone who is just learning cryptic crosswords, this is perfect for learning the different rules and recurring patterns. However, an experienced cryptic crossword solver will probably find these to be a bit too easy.

These British-style crosswords are easier than the ones I'm used to seeing in publications like The Atlantic, but that's a good thing. A great place for a beginner to practice solving cryptics, or for any puzzler to relax with many, many puzzles that go quickly.
