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.
Awesome, but one flaw This app needs to have the "swipe to delete puzzle" function removed. I dont know how many times I've gone to fill a square in the top left, accidentally clicked the back arrow and permanently deleted my current puzzle in one second with a tiny accidental swipe . This is very frustrating. Just keep the "clean up" feature, it does everything I need!
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.
Two Puzzles Keep Showing Up Again and Again I like this app, and the features work for me. The only reason I need the swipe to delete function, is because two puzzles keep downloading again and again. Not every time, but I think on Mondays. People Magazine "Fierce and Fabulous" and New York Times Classic, a Wednesday puzzle from 1998, I think. Fix this glitch and you can easily do away with the swipe to delete feature (or you could add a confirmation button to appease the slippery fingers).
Major look and feel overhaul.
