Best crossword app that i've found with great support by the author. The user interface has many useful options. If there's any missing feature, it would be some better way to handle "rebus" puzzles, where a square contains more than one letter. (Right now I've found typing the first letter works.)
Gmail downloader doesn't work, at least not with AVCX in my Primary inbox - doesn't show up in the drop-down list, nor does it download when I select "All Available". Also some UX issues - panning is too sensitive, as it often pans a few pixels instead of selecting the square I tapped as intended. And it sometimes seems to interpret my panning around the puzzle as zoom for some reason. I have "double tap" disabled. Perhaps another finger is hovering close to the screen or something?

Latest update essentially bricked my phone. OnePlus One with CM11, every launcher and every app crashed within moments of opening, until after many hours of troubleshooting I managed to wade through the crashes and delete your apk. Now I can use my phone again. Totally unacceptable, RIP anyone who can't figure it out.
Since this was my only crossword app, didn't realize how great it was until this week when NYT made a change and had to use their app instead for my NYT subscription puzzle instead of Shortyz. I've gotten smarter with no frustration. And Robert's explanations are fascinating even tho I don't know what he's talking about. A true genius, whose commitment to a passion is A+.
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.
A true crossword puzzle fan's crossword app that is also good for casual crossword fans. It has nice features, nice layout and access to many puzzle sources. NY Times access is fixed in June 2 update (note to users that login process is different but does work fine). Big thanks to kebernet!
Fix for the New York Times support.
