Use to love this game. But recently, with all the new changes, the game constantly freezes. I have to force stop the game & reload to continue. Every time!!! It's annoying. Also, I never get any rewards. The 7 day reward thing is a joke. I get to the 7th day & it just advances to the next week! No rewards. I Keep playing in hopes that the glitches will be fixed. But I'm thinking about finding another crossword app.

Used to be a great app, but each revision makes it worse. I play with a group, and I now seem to be the last one playing. Constantly bogs down, quits responding, and has top row of puzzle blocked with ads. Update 6 weeks later: Nothing has improved except the ad placement at the top of the screen. App is constantly causing tablet to stop responding.

Love this game, for past 4 years. But for 6 mths couldn't sign on my acct because didn't recognize facebook. Finally could get on, game had a slow delay that I thought it was phone, got a new cell. Brand new cell and crashes all the time. Takes half an hour to play 1 puzzle instead of 6 mins. I restart app, ans 3 hints, and boom, back to home screen of cell. Have to restart app and watch all ads cycle etc... all over. Very frustrating. Also used to play tournaments. That's messed up too.
