The latest update changed the color scheme in-game. I really dislike the new color scheme. Blue text makes no sense. I also don't like the big white background. These are harsh on the eyes. Please give us an option to pick the colors, or at least a couple themes to choose from. Until then, my review will remain 3 stars instead of the 5 stars I previously gave it.
This app makes crossword play simple . It has a modern look and feel. It is fast and stable. [Only wish: a way to increase the font size on the clues (as an overall setting and/or as a zoom-in-as needed feature). This would be helpful in low light and for we who squint to see the clues.]
Nice selection of puzzles - some are easy enough for me 😉 but others are too challenging for me (I.e. something to work towards). I like that it alerts you of wrong letters and has a simple symbol to remind me where errors were made (a humbling reminder that I shouldn't use a pen when playing on paper). It would be nice to change directions with a tap on a square and to skip over solved words, but overall this is a great app that doesn't slow my phone, invade my privacy, or pester me with ads. Thank you!
Only drawback is that it doesn't skip entered letters... Unless I'm missing a setting somewhere... Otherwise, great app,
A very straightforward crossword app. Does not adapt well to various keyboard apps but comes with a built-in keyboard that works. Has three crosswords per day and this is sufficient for me. Would like a little more navigation than it has but the app works well and doesn't need a whole lot of permissions.
My favorite! I would like a pause button and/or a visible timer, but it's not a big deal. Love the functionality of this game, very user friendly!
