Two major flaws: it's set to automatically download a bunch of crosswords the first time you open it and it doesn't actually work for NYT crosswords, you can enter your username/password but then nothing happens. I found one that works for NYT, though: crosswords plus by kevin vajk.
Needs to show us our own stats The software keeps our stats somewhere internally so it can report to Google Play games. But there is no way for us to see them. Give us an interface that shows us our own stats, please. Also, at least give us some clue as to what the last 5 Google play games achievements are. Finally, if we are using show errors mode, find a way that mis-types don't count as hinted boxes. And if we start a puzzle in show errors mode, how about giving us a warning box to switch it back to hide errors before starting.
Best crossword app! A+ Clean, smooth interface, simple yet customizable. Many free daily puzzles, plus options to archive and to download more from previous days. Also, it's free! Only way it could be better would be an option for dark background with light text, just to save on battery :)
No Washington Post? Have there been changes with the Washington Post puzzles? I've not been able to download any since 18 Feb. Otherwise, this app is the best free crosswords app out there.
Awesome. This Robert Cooper guy is great. The transition to material design was mildly bumpy but he kept us updated as he fixed things and now imho the app is perfect. Love love love it.
Great, with a few small flaws Unlike others, I actually like the new material design - kudos for keeping it consistent with Lollipop. Also, good job fixing the delete issue. Small issues are the download date picker doesn't show the day of the week, and the keyboard doesn't allow number entries (this has prevented completion of a couple of crosswords). Much larger issue is that square selection seems to be hypersensitive - the slightest sideways movement as you tap is interpreted as a pan rather than a select. Using a Galaxy S6.
Major look and feel overhaul.
