Jan 2023 update. Constantly crashes, won't let me watch the ads for coins until I've tried to watch the ad 3 or 4 times in a row. Freezes up. These issues are not new problems and for the record, I have a new phone so it's not because my phone is old 2020: Everytime this app updates my history clears out and it looks like I've not played at all.

The game is fun, good graphics and well planned crosswords. I like the competition aspect. Giving it three stars because there is no " I'll pay you for the privilege of not watching ads" option. I'll be moving on to an app that doesn't make me watch an ad after every puzzle.

I'm getting more & more frustrated with this game & app every day!!! Half the time it doesn't give me the rewards after I have 'wasted' my time watching the ads in order to get the rewards!! That's totally unacceptable!! Another thing is the app freezing after watching the ads, then you have to exit the app & reopen the app if you choose to continue... again, totally unacceptable!!! These bugs need to addressed & fixed before you lose another long time Crossword Puzzle player.
