Great for crosswords I've had this app for a few years now, and I've always really liked it, especially because you can get lots of puzzles without being nagged to subscribe to keep using them. One feature I do not like as far as functionality goes, is the double-tap zoom feature... Because double-tapping is also how you switch between Down/Across clues. So sometimes it just keeps zooming out further and further, when I just want to switch clues. Other than that, no complaints about this app.
Good but times never worked right This is a great program that has liked many hours of waiting time in offices, dr appts, but it didn't deserve the title because times crossword is always stuck on one and same crossword every week. This needs to be fixed to deserve Dr. Will Shortz name on it. Yes it says Shortzy but that's an obvious implication to the NYT crosswords! The hardest and most fun of them all.
I've been using Shortyz for year, and this app is great for doing the NYT Crossword. However, it still doesn't handle rebus puzzles, which is only an occasional issue, but it makes it tough to do them when they show up. Also, I would love to see it keep cumulative stats (best time for each day, etc.)
I love this app I do crosswords to tire out my brain at night so I can sleep. I love the variety of puzzles and options to turn hints on or off, use keyboards, resize the board etc. I just wish there was a night mode option so it doesn't hurt my eyes so much to play in the dark. My screen filter can't make it dark enough without making it impossible to read anything.
Was higher rating Was a better app but latest updates caused me to be less excited. As many have said, a simple fat finger or typing error before a word is finished shouldn't be counted against me. If I correct the mistyped letter before moving on, that should not add to error count. Some puzzles have answer boxes shortened. Clearly a mistake in conversion. The author has clearly stopped paying close attention to the app.
Love game but... Puzzles do not fit to screen properly on my Galaxy S6. Bottom row or bottom two rows never show on fit to screen mode. I always have to pick zoom out. Also, wrong letters no longer show as red unless that word/clue is selected. If not on the clue with the error it just shows an opaque pink box. Please fix these two things. Have had this game for years and love it. Would also love to see it on the app store for my iPad.
New setup screens. Lots of cleanup.
