Alan Austin Loses one star as although excellent it only has 5 puzzles which is nowhere near enough!

Julia Cureton

Cryptic crossword wonderful Great clues, great fun. Wish there were more because I am hooked now!

Brian Beck

Solid puzzles The puzzles here are few but excellent. The UI could use a bit of polish, mostly around selecting directions to type in the grid, but any issues were minor and didn't get in the way of solving.

Bonnie Adamson

More, please.

Gareth Griffiths

Fun Works well. Enjoyed it.

Mike Holley

Excellent - More Puzzles Please! I've been waiting for a crossword app as good as this since getting my first Android device. I do have a bug to report, the setting to skip to the next free space doesn't work.

Peter Stretch

Can't see all letters on my Galaxy Note 4

Robin Martin

Not adjustable I'm not sure what size screen this puzzle is optimized for but it would not fit on my LG G3 screen. I could only view part of each clue at a time, and only about 3/5 of the keyboard was accessible. I couldn't find a way to adjust it, so I'm uninstalling it - which is highly disappointing because I usually love cryptic crosswords. :(

David Williams

A very nice app. Wish there were more puzzles and also some way to check if the crossword had been solved correctly.

Richard Elston

Does what it says on the tin - excellent cryptic crosswords, just what I wanted!

Gill Wiles

A good little app, could do with more puzzles, though.

David Lee

Great A set of really engaging puzzles - more please ?

Richard Abel

The only fault is that it needs more crosswords.

Buddy Jackson

Thoroughly enjoyed Only 5 puzzles tho

Jen Ners

Good, but... How do you check a puzzle for errors?

Michael Cowley

Crashes on s6

David Rochford

Unusable keyboard Very first clue I tried - easy solution, but the second letter is not on the visible part of the keyboard. Couldn't get any further. Why not use built in keyboard or allow supplied one to scroll?

Gary P

Unusable keyboard - great shame Looked promising but only shows middle third of onscreen keyboard. (Samsung Galaxy note 4). Also tried in landscape mode but still no keyboard.


Keyboard doesn't fit On my LG G4 only the middle bit of the keyboard is visible in both portrait and landscape. Bit of an issue with a crossword app really. Why not use the standard system keyboard?

Edward Ganly

Great crosswords As others have noted here the UI could be better, also it seemed to lag more on startup when the network was enabled. However these were minor issues, I'm looking forward to more crosswords from this compiler

Paul D

The best of the android cryptic crossword apps Works perfectly on moto g. Clever clues. The best of the android cryptic crossword apps.

CJ Marland

They're not bad, but I found a lot of the clues became predictable after a while. Needs more variety and more puzzles

James Tormey

Answers? How do you check if you have it right?

Nick Taylor

Shame only 5 crosswords! Good program but limited with only 5 puzzles. Hopefully will get more ASAP!

Helen Bodmer

Good but need more! Only 5 crosswords. When will you do more?

Gav Stephenson

Really enjoyable. Shame there are only 5 puzzles!

Ret Robertson

Puzzles are good but UI is bad. Developers, thank you for the effort you've put into these free puzzles, but I can't give 5 stars unless you make the layout adjustable. I have tried it on my Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and my Samsung Galaxy Note 12. 1 tablet. It's 100% useless on my phone because I can only see a few letters of the keyboard, with no way to shrink it, and on my tablet, I have to choose between seeing the crossword grid & keyboard in portrait mode, or the clues in landscape mode. I'll give 5 stars if you can make it adjustable.

David Lee

Great A set of really engaging puzzles - more please ?

Graham Collman

Keyboard did not display correctly Clues and grid showed but only part of the keyboard showed on my Galaxy S7 edge, impossible to type in answers... Needs basic UAT before releasing. Adverts displayed fine mind you.
