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.

I love this app. However... I abhor having to log back in every couple of days. It won't even accept my Facebook login now. I have auto update enables. I hate how difficult it is to select the exit button on the settings menu and directional buttons for game play. It's really annoying that the puzzle of the day is the only one that tracks progress. And I would like an indication of which puzzles have been completed in the puzzle packs.

This is a great crossword game when it works. Unfortunately it will sometimes randomly hang at startup. Even worse since the last update a few days ago, I have not been able to open the app at all. It just hangs at the startup screen. I uninstalled and reinstalled a few times and got it to open once, but when I tried to log in it hung again and I could no longer get in. Do the dev's even test the app? Seems like tons of people are having issues.
