It's hard to maneuver between games. To start a new one, you have to slide through miles and miles of listings of all the previous games you've played. Then you still have to pause as the reel constantly has to catch up. It's very tedious and just a poorly written program. Then sometimes you're knocked out of the game completely for no apparent reason. I sometimes play for hours so I've accumulated a long list. Previous games should just fall off at some point so you don't have to wade through t

Such a pain using the app. Firstly it uses the phone keyboard which can be annoying, especially every time it glitches the keyboard betweens caps. Randomly letters will be placed onto the crossword so they have to be clicked to make disappear, yeah the letters aren't even real, just visually there. Sizing and proportions feel off. Trying to navigate to down/across or next line is a game of it's own.

At first I really liked this app. Much better experience than the browser version. However, after about a week the app started freezing lamist every time I open it. It never makes it through the load screen. I would say it works about 5-10% of the time. Basically useless unless they fix the issue. I have force quite and restarted it, deleted cache, uninstalled and reinstalled. Nothing helped.
