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.
Fantastic But Buggy An absolutely fantastic app for doing crosswords, but unfortunately buggy in some areas. Notably, the app crashes on landscape rotation and the current puzzle's progress is lost. Also can't change from Down to Across by clicking on first clue (I prefer the crossword to start Across rather than Down)
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.
Great app, one problem Love the app, so nice to be able to get nyt crosswords on android. As the difficulty for nyt (and other crosswords) depends on the day of the week, it would be great if the date picker used a calendar or indicated day of week. Keep up the good work! Edit: they have a day of the week text, but it's off by a day. Edit: they fixed! However the app crashes randomly on 7.0 and loses my progress. A simple solution is to automatically save.
New setup screens. Lots of cleanup.
