Seems to be somewhat unresponsive on my Pixel 2 XL. The top right menu from within a game opens so slowly / choppy. But more concerning is that I have to repeatedly tap on letters for the game to respond. Something definitely going on with how this game works on the new phone.
I still have an issue that I can't download the NYT puzzle, I think because I login to the Times through my Google account, which gives me an error inside of the app. Using the user/pass directly, it seems to login, but a puzzle never downloads for me. Still like the app though. Update the above was user error. Now I know that the basic NYT digital subscription doesn't include the puzzle.
What a disappointment! I used to have this on another device and loved out. I don't know why they ruined it! Navigation is terrible. I have tried many crosswords apps and have not liked many. I was so happy when I found this and then was totally disappointed.
So many bugs. The edges of the app don't work with the Samsung Galaxy S8 so you can't type "p" or "q" or navigate to any box on the far right or left edge
It's irritating that typos that I correct as I go are counted as "hint boxes." It ruined my enjoyment of doing a crossword puzzle to the point where I uninstalled the app. I do crossword puzzles for fun, but it isn't fun to have stats like "number of hints" (most of which are typos I immediately corrected but still got dinged for) and "overall time" (this isn't a race) staring me in the face when I finish a puzzle. It just feels like I'm being graded (and graded harshly at that). ADDED 12/9/17: I saw the reply to me, and frankly, turning off the pink boxes isn't what I want--it's the ability to turn off the pop-up statistics message.
Generally it's good. However I'd like there to be an option for entering a word as whole, before you 'enter' it officially. There are many times where I get dinged from having a perfect puzzle because I knew the correct answer, but typed a wrong letter. Usually this is because of the smaller keyboard; my finger hit the letter next to the one I intended to use. Of course, using this whole-word option would mean all boxes may be wrong if you're wrong, and that's fine. In addition, sometimes it enters a letter twice, like a keyboard glitch or something. This doesn't happen often, but enough that this reason also prohibits me from having a perfect puzzle. On a rare occasion the second unintended may be correct, but generally it isn't. Also, once a correct letter is entered, it'd be nice if it couldn't be erased or backspaced over for those times when I have no idea what the word is and have to 'brute force' letters to get the correct answer.
