Doesn't work I downloaded this app but there were no puzzles nor could I navigate through the app. Don't waste your time on this one

A Google User

simply by far the best free one it is awesome & so easy to use! deleted all my other crossword apps.

Maegan Miller

worthless. I loved it until it stopped downloading puzzles. Now its worthless

Iain Ozbolt

Tiny clue text only weakness Definitely the best crossword app around, my only criticism is the text size for the clues. Fine on my phone, but when I installed it on my Aunt's tablet, the clues are a might small for her eyes.

Laura Stone

Used to love this app Cannot download puzzles on galaxy s5 because it no longer has a soft key menu button. And the app itself does not have a built in menu option. Honestly that is the only problem. .. if you can fix it I give it 5 stars.

Jeanie Kenkel

I like that it downloads .puz files... ...but it's useless to me without a timer. Sorry.

Rick Kastel

Used to be a great puzzle app, but now only get 1 New puzzle/week. Very disappointing.

Reid Paslay

Needs and update. Requires users to access the menu to download crosswords. The S5 had no menu button so this app will not work unless you use a PC to transfer crosswords over to your phone.

Cannot download puzzles Requests that you download puzzles. So what is this app exactly? I thought I was downloading crossword puzzles when I selected it....

A Google User

Sux Doesnt work dont bother loading this junk

Nadia Sawh

Hands down my fav Only problem I have is that this app works perfectly on my Sony Xperia but doesn't work at all on my Galaxy Tab4 . A solution to this would be appreciated!

A Google User

Ok But shortys is better interface.

A Google User

Nice puzzles but Keyboard is too small and pinch to zoom would be more convenient.

A Google User

Stupid No puzzles whatsoever sooooo stupid do not download

Anon Ymous

Not a good setup, difficult to use.

A Google User

more needs more puzzle sources

Ralph Young

Crosswords Terrible! Totally unusable. Don't w as set your time

A Google User

No current nyt subscriptions and poor default keyboard. Going with shortyz to fix both problems. You can import nyt .puzzle files manually though.

A Google User

Nice app considering it is free. Would be better if when working on down clues, the cursor would move to the next down number, not just down the page.

A Google User

Thanks to a friend for passing this on to me~now I'll be able to play a real crossword game on phone~Kudos to Phyrum Tea!

A Google User

This could be a great app if some problems were fixed. Zooming is buggy and sometimes it deletes all my answers randomly. Completely unacceptable.

A Google User

I like this app, but 2 times, 2/3 of the way thru a puzzle all my entries clear themselves and I have to start over, its irritating...

A Google User

crossword cleared all my answers... twice Crossword cleared when I was half done with it, then after re-doing and almost don it cleared again...

A Google User

Wish it had more sources by default. Very US centric clues on most. More importantly, it wiped my answers when it switched screen orientation.

A Google User

Good app, lets you download lots of puzzles each day. Has a nasty bug where all your work is occassionaly erased.

A Google User

Great except one thing... Nice in all regards except how I keep almost entirely solving puzzles just to come back later to find all my progress erased.

A Google User

Used to be decent. But, lately has been deleting all answers mid-puzzle. Uninstalling.

A Google User

Very nice app!If you're into crosswords then this is THE app!

A Google User

This app is absolutely outrageous, especially for users outside of the usa. Vaguest clues of the week.

A Google User

The answers in my puzzles would randomly be erased before my eyes without my pressing anything. No thanks.

A Google User

Worthless. Great puzzles, but won't save progress

A Google User

ONE BIG ISSUE Clears answers to partially completed puzzles on a regular basis. Very frustrating. Otherwise great crossword app.

A Google User

This used to be perfect. I abhor the cursor that jumps letters and words now. I work things in a certain order and am constantly annoyed.

Nadia Sawh

Hands down my fav. free crossword app. Even though most newspapers don't download to this anymore, it is still the easiest to use. Flow of the crossword is efficient and I can't get used to this on any other crossword app. I do a crossword every night. However, I've noticed that this app doesn't work at all on newer devices (i.e. SG Note 4 and SG Tab 3).

Wayne Wick

I want to burn entire hemispheres to the ground every time I try to answer a clue. Throw a fistfull of scrabble tiles into a snowbank and I promise that will get you closer to entering the correct answer. Then again maybe I just have anger issues because this is a review of a free crossword puzzle app.

Ellen Weider

Doesn't work on android tablet Title says it all - doesn't work.

Lori DesRochers

This ap is my favorite crossword app. Please add more sources so I don't run out of puzzles!!!!

Joel Bradshaw

Completely unusable on modern phones Maybe this works on old phones, but on my Android 5.x device, it's completely unusable. Can't see the whole grid, forces its own terrible internal keyboard for no reason, unfathomable UI. I'll join Wayne in his hemisphere-burning.

Jennifer Sinclair

Doesn't work on tablet I only get a screen telling me what the menu items are but no way to access the menu

A Google User

Would like it a lot more if it didn't keep wiping semi completed crosswords back to square one
