Easy and fun!
Update issues
by Chris94550 on 2019/07/21 01:04
I love this crossword app but after this last update it freezes up regularly so I have to kill the app and restart. I am running an older version of IOS(10.3.3) for specific reasons so that might be the issue.
Enjoying

I enjoy these puzzles!
Free 10 letters
by jskdjwowospkxnfkdkd on 2019/07/17 15:11
I didn’t like when i automatically get the free letters after watching the video. I wanted to save it until I really need it.
Aggravating!
by Gdar78 on 2019/07/17 14:21
Buttons that cause you to 'spend' coins are located so close to the bottom of the grid that you hit them erroneously. Words are either too easy or some obscure topic you would never know. And yet I keep playing!?
Unfair
by naupendo on 2019/07/16 21:13
There are pauses and interruptions if you try to go back and forth in the grid where you lose time then you lose stars. Now you have to work within 8 mins to get 3 stars.
Not bad
by mechers on 2019/07/16 09:10
It’s a good app, but I don’t like the new way that they want to make you pay for the app. I am happy with the way it is and I’m not going to buy a package just to get more mini games and so on. Just keep it the way it is, it’s fine.
Music not needed!
by bookslady on 2019/07/15 23:07
Crosswords can be annoying alone let alone having ads and music waft through while solving
Daily Kick-off
by Wykatmom on 2019/07/11 14:06
These crosswords are challenging, fun, and always get the brain going to solve. The themes are great, too. Science, nature, sports, Star Wars, even. Political climate and current affairs. I look forward to a new puzzle each morning.
Love this game
by JANDKSMOM on 2019/07/11 12:16
Love this crossword, not to easy or hard. Right in the middle so it doesn’t sprain my brain. My husband and I compete to see who can beat whom in time. So fun
Fun

It’s a good time passer.
Pretty Disappointing
by wOrDpLaYEr01928374651029384756 on 2019/07/08 02:15
First i gave this review 2 stars instead of 1 or none because I really think this app has a lot of potential to be great. However half of the time the game completely freezes and you have to exit the game completely and reboot and the other half of the time if you complete one of the mini packs (whether it’s a pack you’ve paid for with coins you’ve earned and got added to your coin bank, or a free pack that was just added to your minis list) I don’t receive the reward listed upon completion. I’ve finished more than half a dozen packs with the “prize” clearly shown at the start of the 10, 12 or 15 mini puzzle packs and got nothing in return (I’ve finished packs with rewards ranging from 15 up to one pack that I paid for that had 50 coins upon completion) I’ve sent notices to their email support, I get an email verifying they have my complaint and that they will work on and fix the problem. Then 2-3 days later I get an app update but nothing actually gets fixed. I actually really do like the app, I like the wide variety of crossword puzzles to choose from, and that they offer daily puzzles and daily minis for free. I’m hesitant to just delete it out of frustration because I do like the concept that much. Its just irritating when the screen freezes or finishing a pack that I should collect 30 coins for and I get nothing (even more when I paid coins to get the pack) I think there are several glitches that need to be fixed and it would easily get a 5 star rating
Love it!
by Brooklynnpsl on 2019/07/07 19:19
Better than playing some mindless game. Freezes every so often, but otherwise, it is wonderful:)
Ugh
by tul75 on 2019/07/06 15:20
I get pep messages “yaaay you beat 78% of players play now to finish” I go to play and the game is STUCK! Pleeeeeaaase fix this sooooon I am losing coins
Freezes
by anothersurvey on 2019/07/05 13:58
This would be my favorite if it didn’t freeze it freezes all the time so pointless. I never had so much trouble with a game app. Fix the freeze it all considered re-downloading
Great fun
by Mrsdix3 on 2019/07/05 11:55
I wish there was an option for ad free
Bad app
by jejeejjvskwu on 2019/07/04 20:36
It’s a very fun game, but it freezes on me all the time. And when I go back to the app it either takes me to a different puzzles or it entirely erases the one I was on
Addicted
by Wsherr69 on 2019/07/03 22:14
I love this game. I’m totally addicted. My wife is too. Helps to pass the time.
Good Game But...
by MN Jeff in TX on 2019/07/03 10:38
Don’t like the 20 coin penalty to check one or two “wrong letters”.
Freeze
by RIH213 on 2019/07/02 22:34
I like this game, but every time I fill in a few blanks the game freezes up. I have to turn it off for a few seconds then turn it back on for a few more letters, then freeze up again! So aggravating!!! I can’t play it anymore! Please fix this problem!!
Freezing!
by Cubs fan100 on 2019/07/02 09:44
The game keeps freezing up during play.
Game now freezes since update
by Saseeshaz on 2019/06/30 21:34
Love playing this game but since I updated it a day ago it is now constantly freezing. I have to close out the game and reopen it. I also have not been getting any videos for me to earn extra coins. So frustrated I want to stop playing and delete it from my phone
Repetitive answers, Christianity biased and schemes
by Inner cool on 2019/06/29 16:37
Multiple puzzles have repetitive answers, that seem to be rather basic and requires no critical thinking. There seems to be a Christian bias, ie how many commandments, brother of Cain and Abel, and more. No other religious question are posed, only Christian. There is a setting to unknowingly drain your coins every time you play a new puzzle that will show you wrong answers which cost 20 coins a game.
Ability to track wrong words
by Bradmed6 on 2019/06/28 19:19
Needs functionality without added purchase to view incorrect responses while working on a puzzle.
Mini daily puzzle
by Zacfire18 on 2019/06/27 05:34
It would add to my enjoyment of the game if I could see a completed puzzle for more than a flash.
Generally fun, but...
by Tjinsa on 2019/06/24 19:28
Glitches and crashes due to ad interference is incredibly annoying. Coin earning/spending seems shady as heck. Will most likely delete app after a few more puzzles.
Good crossword but coins are hard to get
by falenag on 2019/06/23 22:09
I really like this game but it is really frustrating when you finish it and there is 1 or 2 letters wrong. It costs 10 coins to get 10 letters or 20 to show what letters are wrong. That watching 2 or 4 ads. The mini games are worth 1 coin. Also it is just too expensive to join and get more free games
Fun crosswords
by E11ie49 on 2019/06/19 16:07
Lots of fun to work these puzzles!
More coins, please
by mimideni on 2019/06/19 12:53
I like the app and enjoy working the puzzles. I would like it if more coins were awarded with the completion of the puzzle.
Great crosswords
by Winder Pain on 2019/06/18 03:24
LOVE IT!!!! ❤️❤️❤️
More time
by Bajane on 2019/06/17 02:15
I like the minis best, but there should be more time to solve than one minute to get three stars.
Fun
by pierce40 on 2019/06/16 07:25
I love crosswords. I love this app because it gives you the option to do a mini crossword or a big crossword.
Fun

Fun and great to keep mind active
Went down hill
by Tso3300 on 2019/06/16 02:48
I loved playing this game until the last update when it made you wait 2 hours in between videos to earn coins.
Oh, the Noise!
by BetterThan50 on 2019/06/15 20:31
How do I turn off all sound effects while I’m playing??
Fun app
by mmetcalfe91 on 2019/06/12 21:14
I thoroughly enjoy doing the crossword puzzles. I don’t mind waiting for the new ones and don’t care about the coins. It’s just a fun way to pass the time.
Would be more stars, but...
by CTLady410 on 2019/06/10 18:52
I really enjoy the daily puzzles, but I used to be able to earn additional coins by watching videos, sometimes up to 10 videos per day were available, earning me an additional 50 coins, but they have since discontinued this practice, and now I can only watch 1 video per day for only 5 coins. When each puzzle could potentially cost you 20+ coins, if you want to see the wrong letters or buy a word, you use up those coins very quickly. I know they did this to make you purchase additional coins, but I feel they should have kept the option to view several videos to earn free coins rather than make you buy them. Chances are when I run out of coins I’ll stop playing the game and will look for another crossword puzzle app.

Time zone issue
by Adams126 on 2019/06/06 04:08
I enjoy playing this every day but I noticed that it resets the puzzle fixation achievement if you’re not in your normal time zone when you play.
BEST
by Baylee 01 on 2019/06/06 01:48
Best crossword puzzles out there. You can ACTUALLY win coins by finishing. New concept as far as I know because I don’t know of any other app that does that. Bravo!
Mostly fun
by Foxx8614 on 2019/06/03 02:47
Mostly fun but sometimes the answers are way off. It’s frustrating when some questions are not things that are common or are from another question. But most can be figured out. It is a fun game to pass the time. However, I hate the recent time change for the daily puzzle. Go back to the way it was!

Been playing this for a year now, more like a part of daily routine now. Clues are neither too simple not too difficult. Learnt a lot of new stuff. Great way to spend free time.
Inappropriate puzzle
by Kilob1062 on 2019/05/29 02:59
You have a puzzle in the Gourmet mini pack shaped like a swastika.
4 Stars
by Gah11 on 2019/05/27 13:30
I enjoy playing this game. It’s nice to see what letters are wrong too, very helpful. I gave it 4 stars because you have to use your tokens to play any archived games, even yesterday’s. Other than that I like it!
Points
by Cimmindy on 2019/05/27 02:08
Yes, I find it’s slow, too. But there’s no way to earn points and it costs too much to show wrong letters. Another crossword puzzle I play lets you watch an ad to get free letters. After all this time playing I only have like 270 points and it costs 20 points to show wrong letters.

Worst puzzles ever

If you like crossword puzzles, don’t download this app. The clues are little more than regurgitated dictionary definitions. Mindless and unimaginative.

Fun way to pass some time. I never have any technical issues.
Words spelled incorrectly
by dgail on 2019/05/21 04:51
Loved this game but except when the answer is spelled incorrectly and blows my timing score. For example a clue was “NBC (name of show) and ABC(name of show) are both programs that - answer AIRER. AIRER is a rack to dry clothes. It should have been AIRED. UGH!!!!
Pop ups
by Block417 on 2019/05/20 15:12
Too many pop up ads, also very expensive to purchase and if purchased do ads go away
Great!
by Mariecrtdls on 2019/05/18 05:48
I love, love, LOVE this app!! It’s most definitely the best crossword app. And other then the ads for other games (which that’s on every app), there’s not those annoying constant pop up trying to get you to buy coins or puzzle packs either, which makes it more enjoyable. The puzzles themselves are also fun and challenging, but not so hard you cannot finish the puzzle.

I Play Everyday!
by Joy 💋68 on 2019/05/16 13:43
To me, this is the best Crossword game I’ve tried. I do the “Daily” and the “Mini” puzzles for free. I can even play past months’ (days) at no cost! I do pay a few bucks here and there to use the “Show Wrong” answers -which to me, is worth it. The puzzles are fun because some answers are easy; others- more difficult. The only problem I have is that once in awhile I accidentally hit the key to “Show 10 Letters” which uses paid coins. That’s because it’s on the bottom of the game and my phone. Later, I might try their other puzzle offers. For now would like to say “Thanks” for making a great game! Joy B.
too easy!!
by Wizardly wizard no play on 2019/05/14 12:09
It’s a fun app, and I enjoy it for its purpose, but most of the full puzzles are way too easy (I’ve been finishing them in less than five minutes) I downloaded this app because I was frustrated and didn’t want to buy some of the puzzles that New York Times Crossword had, but I need a challenge. It might be beneficial to include easy, medium, and hard puzzles for different people. (Similar to how the New York Times has easy puzzles on Monday and hard puzzles on Sunday). I still enjoy the app for when the NY Times fall short- it has a nice format without too many black squares in the puzzles and some of the clues are clever. I would download this app if you are a beginner at crosswords or if the NY Times crosswords are too difficult.
Fun and challenging

Meh
by Ptness247 on 2019/05/05 13:23
I love the crosswords but the whole earning coins thing is annoying. I don’t have social media accounts so I lose the ability to earn any stars and it becomes really frustrating. It would be perfect if they changed this aspect.

by Spitcanjoe on 2019/04/27 00:59
There are a number of “challenges” you can do for coins that worked great at first but now I have had multiple that just reset themselves and lose all of my progress ( one of them would take 5 months to get back to). I have reached out to support but didn’t get a response. In the grand scheme of things it is no big deal, just really frustrating if you don’t want to have to pay real money for hints.

Clever but not obscure clues. Fun topics. Even if you don’t know the day’s main theme, you can get close with the cross words. I like “see wrong” but don’t like having to watch the same commercials over and over to get coins to use the feature.

Need help.
by Tuffy 8/9/2006 on 2018/06/09 04:50
I like the app, but the one thing I don’t like is that once you fill in the word one way and go to the next way everything is fine. But if you go back and forth from across to down and back again. The boxes that you filled in don’t get skipped, you have to fill them in again. Which makes it longer to finish the game and harder to beat your time. And if you try to fill in a word with some letters missing, trying to guess the blank letter, you have to keep hitting the blank box with every guess. That takes way to long to guess the word. Hope you can fix this issue the next time without changing the good things you had before.
Fun when not Frustrating
by LolasMum33 on 2017/12/22 00:10
The puzzles are generally great and the puzzle packs are a fun idea. The problems include slow, sometimes frozen, letters; usually it works fine but, there seems to sometimes be a delay when inputting letters. Also, there has been more than one puzzle where I've discovered typos. I wish there were more and easier ways to earn coins in order to buy puzzle packs and play past puzzles you have missed. However, my biggest complaint, other than speed, is that with the latest update, there is now a permanent ad blocking the "Spin" feature. I enjoyed using the five free spins when I was stuck on just one word or letter and wanting to beat the clock. The whole top bar is now completely blocked by an ad on this version on my iphone. I've tried everything I can think of to remove it (other than spending money) including tapping on it, just to have it replaced by another ad, and turning off all access to the Internet. I would purchase the app, if that is an option but, I would first like to be reassured that the freezing/speed issues will be taken care of and that I definitely will have access to the free spins. Overall, I enjoy this app and would recommend to others but, would warn them of the above issues. I will continue to use the app unless the speed issue becomes too exaggerated. I really do hope they are working on these issues. I look forward to finding out!
Updated review
by PyromamaK on 2017/12/15 23:16
The latest annoying thing is I have 2 games in progress from several months ago. If I click one it takes me to the correct puzzle but then freezes. The puzzle is shown with no clues anyway. No matter how many times I’ve tried going back to those 2 specific dates the game freezes or there’s a black screen. Please fix! Could’ve been 5 starts but...I agree with most reviews that the coin system is severely lacking. Overall a great game but 2 things I have a real problem with: one is the volume when doing the bonus packs for instance. I have the sound turned off in the controls but when an ad plays the volume is ON which is not great if you’re sitting in a waiting room for example, plus it’s just downright annoying in the first place. Second is the small ads at the bottom of puzzles. I have epilepsy and the ads blinked and flashed so rapidly I thought I was going to have a seizure. If it happens again I will uninstall the game.
Would’ve been 4* but...
by Anna Tru on 2018/01/24 23:42
I used this app every night as my chill out from a long day of workin at a prison. I absolutely love it. Some words are challenging. Some are easy. It’s a good balance. Also some people on here complain about coins. But compared to other apps, you get more for your efforts. But I had a Situation where I accidentally made a purchase. Therein is where this app gets 2*. I had used the help button options a few times. It sends you to your email app to send an email. Then you’ll get an automatic response saying someone will get back you (typically within 24 hours) and within less than 2 hours I got a personal response with the next steps to help my situation. Well this time I didn’t get that second response. It has been 3 days and I don’t dare play the app. I was able to resolve the situation, but not through this app, through Apple iTunes or something like that.
Would be more stars, but...
by CTLady410 on 2019/06/10 18:52
I really enjoy the daily puzzles, but I used to be able to earn additional coins by watching videos, sometimes up to 10 videos per day were available, earning me an additional 50 coins, but they have since discontinued this practice, and now I can only watch 1 video per day for only 5 coins. When each puzzle could potentially cost you 20+ coins, if you want to see the wrong letters or buy a word, you use up those coins very quickly. I know they did this to make you purchase additional coins, but I feel they should have kept the option to view several videos to earn free coins rather than make you buy them. Chances are when I run out of coins I’ll stop playing the game and will look for another crossword puzzle app.
Don’t Buy Coins
by GFM Reviewer on 2019/04/16 18:02
I really enjoy doing the puzzles, but get really frustrated when I finish a puzzle and random amounts of my coins have been used without me even knowing it was happening or why. I never play a puzzle when it says I have to use coins to play - in other words I only play when it claims the puzzle is “free” or “free with viewing an ad video”, but I’ll get done with the puzzle and sometimes upward of 30 coins will have been used without my knowledge - and this is without using any of the “help” items at the bottom of the puzzle which use coins. I wouldn’t care as much if I only ever used coins I earned just by playing puzzles, but sometimes I buy the coins so it is really irritating. It would be nice if something would pop up warning you that something you’re about to do is going to cost you and list the cost.
I Play Everyday!
by Joy 💋68 on 2019/05/16 13:43
To me, this is the best Crossword game I’ve tried. I do the “Daily” and the “Mini” puzzles for free. I can even play past months’ (days) at no cost! I do pay a few bucks here and there to use the “Show Wrong” answers -which to me, is worth it. The puzzles are fun because some answers are easy; others- more difficult. The only problem I have is that once in awhile I accidentally hit the key to “Show 10 Letters” which uses paid coins. That’s because it’s on the bottom of the game and my phone. Later, I might try their other puzzle offers. For now would like to say “Thanks” for making a great game! Joy B.
too easy!!
by Wizardly wizard no play on 2019/05/14 12:09
It’s a fun app, and I enjoy it for its purpose, but most of the full puzzles are way too easy (I’ve been finishing them in less than five minutes) I downloaded this app because I was frustrated and didn’t want to buy some of the puzzles that New York Times Crossword had, but I need a challenge. It might be beneficial to include easy, medium, and hard puzzles for different people. (Similar to how the New York Times has easy puzzles on Monday and hard puzzles on Sunday). I still enjoy the app for when the NY Times fall short- it has a nice format without too many black squares in the puzzles and some of the clues are clever. I would download this app if you are a beginner at crosswords or if the NY Times crosswords are too difficult.
Ads will give you anxiety!!
by GeekyGirl007 on 2018/06/30 15:41
You are forced to look at an ad after every puzzle you complete which consists of forcing you to stare at scary health related articles. It forces you to look at two articles for 15-20 seconds per article before allowing you to return to the game. If you have anxiety, especially health anxiety, I wouldn’t recommend downloading this game. It will only make your anxiety worse. If you don’t have anxiety, then this game will probably give you anxiety with all it’s horrible scary health ads. On top of that, you will also get full page pop up ads right in the middle of working on a puzzle. So you are getting ads DURING each puzzle AND AFTER!! If they fixed the ad problem in this game I’d rate 5 stars but the ads ruin the experience. I don’t mind ads as I know they support developers but in this case, the ads are just extremely stressful and we already have enough stress in our daily lives. We don’t need to be stressed out more when we are just trying to relax with a game! Very highly not recommended. There are lots of other crossword puzzles to choose from. I’ll be searching for a new one. I’d love to give this one another try in the future if the ads are fixed.
Updated review
by Madre Liz on 2018/06/04 18:26
The developers are very responsive to feedback, and I appreciate it. Not only have they restored most of my missing games, but they credited me with points/coins. I really do enjoy these puzzles, and for the next thing, hope they will develop a game with medium-level difficulty! I was really enjoying this, and even purchased several coins, but after having several games interrupted by long ads and having entire months of games deleted, I’m leaving money on the table and deleting it.
Glitches Ruin The Game
by SydThaKid13 on 2019/02/26 13:22
I’ve been playing this game for a while now. Daily games are listed as being “free” if played on the day they are released while older, archived puzzles cost coins to access. I have noticed that I am being charged coins whether I am playing the daily “free” game or not; in other words, “free” is a misnomer. Additionally, a user is supposed to be able to access two ads to view for 5 coins apiece every two hours (“Watch for free $”). However, I have to repeatedly tap the ad button and go through multiple “no ad is available right now” messages before one will play. These issues make this game less fun for me to play and I am rethinking whether it is even worth it.
Fun when not being cheated
by Mamahue23 on 2018/09/19 20:55
I have come across some problems lately that have caused me to be really suspicious, first I thought that just maybe I was over reacting to the puzzles not closing out when I was finished with them. It says your almost there, but then I was rechecking all my answers and nothing was wrong with them. So I took pictures of my answers, then I paid the coins and took pictures again. Wells, guess what the puzzle was exactly the same no changes at all.. NONE. So this has me very upset and frustrated. Not to mention angry because it’s taking my money to finish out my puzzles in a timely manner.
Love This Crossword App
by lady7577 on 2019/01/31 16:55
I discovered this app last year and I look forward to playing it everyday. The crosswords are very good and almost always enjoyable. The only thing that I dislike is that when you do some of the activities to get points, they don’t always work right, but I can live with that. My favorite thing about this app is that once you use the hint to show all mistakes, it continues to work on the other puzzles you work that day. Give it a try if you love crossword puzzles as much as I do!
Would be great - BUT..
by EJ3B on 2018/07/17 21:16
I love crosswords - and these ones are really fun. The trouble is that I burn through too many too fast apparently. They make it impossible to get coins (which are REQUIRED to play a new puzzle). You can watch 2 videos every 2 hours which earns you 10 coins. To buy more coins - the LEAST you can spend is $2.99. That’s insane. For $2.99 I could buy a book of 10,000 crosswords. There have to be better, cheaper crossword games avail for download. I’m deleting this bc it’s nothing but an annoyance for me when I jump on to kill 10 mins & they tell me I have an hour & a half left to wait before I can WATCH VIDEOS to earn MAYBE enough coins to play ONE more game.
Disappointed in changes
by wooktoots on 2018/05/23 18:00
I would have given this app a much higher score, but some recent changes made in the updates have annoyed me. My main issue is, despite me having checked the setting that shows incorrect letters placed on the puzzle, that doesn’t happen. So, now, if I want to have help with o correction I have to forfeit 20 points. The points are not easy to com by, as 4 videos have to be viewed in order to earn 20 points. Plus, my videos are printed being show in Spanish. Considering deleting the app because what was once part of play now has to be earned by wasting time on videos.
I’ll give a 5 rating if....
by Mswinz on 2017/11/16 05:01
I love crossword puzzles. So; in turn, I love this app because it’s a crossword app. But there are a few problems that need to be fixed. 1)When typing in the answer instead of the letter showing you can be charged with choosing a help hint - bottom row of keyboard too close to hints. That’s 10-20 coin. 2)No daily bonus with sign in coins. 3)Earning coins is too time consuming esp. for the small amt earned. Once u follow directions u may or may not get coins and I’m frustrated with the huge amount of unwanted emails and phone calls from solicitors who should not have my contact information
Crazy Clues that you’d NEVER guess
by RevHotRod on 2018/07/26 10:30
I have done about 25 or more puzzles and minis. EVERY puzzle has multiple clues or answers that are very dumb and unconnected or just things that DO NOT even go with each other even after you figure it out by filling in other answers. It is very upsetting to not even have a shot at solving the clues. Some are easy, some are hard but some have No Business even being put in here. The “theme” for the puzzles are very weak and usually only about 10% of answers are theme related. Some answers are used in almost every puzzle. Like : A period of time-: “ERA”. A much better job must be done to make people want to come back and play. Disappointed
It’s OK, but not great
by Wickedlilg on 2018/08/22 21:07
It’s a crossword game so it’s not like I expected anything new, but I do expect there to not be so many spelling errors. There’s been several boards that I’ve been stuck on because I just can’t figure it out...just to realize that THEY have a typo. Examples include them spelling Hola (Spanish for hello) as Ola, and actor Sean Astin’s last name as Aston. It’s pretty crappy on their part considering that you then end up resorting to spending your difficult to get coins on having them reveal which letters you have “wrong”, even though THEY’RE the ones who are wrong. I suspect they do it to try to get you to spend your money.
EXTREMELY buggy and NO support
by FroedricFr2 on 2018/08/26 03:42
I have been enjoying the app (daily themed crossword puzzles), but lately I’m about ready to delete it and go with a different one. I’ve tried messaging in-app but don’t receive any response or even acknowledgement. But I’ve had completed puzzles disappear on me and display as never been opened. I’ve had crossword clues and their answers CHANGE on me in the MIDDLE of play. In addition, my spouse and I appear to have different interfaces with different features such as a bonus archived puzzle upon completing the daily puzzle which I’ve never seen on mine (yes, we each have the same current updates). I’m just extremely frustrated. Was really liking the app but about ready to call it quits.
Could be better.
by flordia georgia line on 2018/07/03 21:06
How about more coins per ad viewing, and zero time between the time that you can view ads? Most of us would prefer to stay ON the app to gain coins, not going out of our way just to gather a FEW. 4/5 of the options that you have to get coins are practically pointless- downloading an app you do not want and ordering something off of it, or reaching a certain level? How about wasting your time completing a few games within that app, just to delete it after that? Whoever downloads this, here’s a message: you’re better off playing with paper and a pencil.
Fun but frustrating
by BoogalooGq on 2018/06/23 18:57
I really enjoy the crosswords, but this app kills me with the constant barrage of advertisements. I understand that free apps need to make their money somewhere, and specifically iOS applications are worst at it, but having one pop up every time you finish a puzzle, while you’re working on the puzzle, before you start a puzzle, and constantly running banner adds are just awful. To top it off, the coin system of purchasing archived puzzles really dampers the experience as well (although the free mini puzzles are available which is a shining light in an otherwise abysmal experience). This app is 100% made for profit, I get that, but could be far less obnoxious about it.
Very addictive!
by etrayn3 on 2017/09/16 21:20
Love this game! It's very addictive, you want to play for hours. I would have given it a five, but the controls for inputting the answers are a little flaky. They sometimes don't respond properly and enter data in the wrong field. It's a minor problem which with slow and careful manipulation of the controls can be avoided, but will cost you clock time. The puzzle variety is good and varied, but you have to purchase them or watch ads to get gold to buy them.
Needs less pop up ads and screen revision
by crosswrdcraze on 2018/05/19 15:36
This game is very frustrating. In rhe middle of entering a wird in the grid an ad pops up you cant get rid of making it impossible to earn 3 stars. My screen has been locked on a pop up ad for over 4 hours. Also the screen needs reworked. When you choose a letter from the bottom row of keys you sometimes accidentally hit a help button wasting coins and hints Please consider putting on another screen with a link or get rid of the stream of ads at the top and reposition. Letters do sometimes freeze up also. Very frustrating to say the least. I do enjoy the puzzles but about to erase app its nit worth the constant frustrations.👎
Like This Game But....
by Joe in MI on 2018/02/14 00:07
This a nice but as a person of some years I am not into today music or movies. How about when you say something is classic put in a CLASSIC MOVIE THEME or in music something from the Golden Age of Rock and Roll. And just other so called free apps you never really give many free coins. I also try to get free coins by watching ads. The problem with that is they freeze up a lot, especially the ones for the Marines. I have the utmost respect for the Marine Corps and don’t mind watching the ads but not when it freezes up my game and I end up not getting the coins.
Could be much better
by El paso crone on 2018/10/04 11:31
These puzzles are ok on a sleepy morning when I’m not quite awake but, after a few of them, you begin to see too many repeats like UMA for the actress or ION, IRIS, etc. Also, crosswords aren't supposed to invent words like incorrect abbreviations for things like ‘dele’ for delete when the correct abbreviation is ‘del’ or blatant misspellings of known words. Lastly, some clues and/ or answers are just plain wrong. I have been playing only 6 weeks and have now written to the company 7 times about incorrect clues and/or answers such as: 1) referring to a “Dame” as ‘A knight’s lady’ when a Dame is, in fact, a woman knighted in her own right 2) calling runes ‘magical symbols’ when they are, in fact, a form of ancient writing used by the Norse. 3) defining ‘iambic’ as ‘a unit of poetry’ when it is, in fact a metric measurement in a specific TYPE of poetry. 4) calling a firefly a ‘fire worm’ when it is, in fact, a beetle and not a worm at all. 5) referring to multiple ELK as ELKS.
Love!
by kelsruiz on 2017/11/26 01:09
This is definitely my favorite crossword app!! However, I do miss the spinner that gave letters and coins. Would love that feature to come back if possible. I also do not like the hint buttons being beneath the keyboard. It's really easy to accidentally hit "+10 letter" or "show word." Any way to move that to the top of the screen, since the spinner was taken away? Just a suggestion. Love the app, just want to make it better!
Fun but WAY too many ads
by Joe2D2 on 2018/10/07 03:14
This app is a nice challenge but there are a lot of things that need to be removed in order for me to give a better rating. 1) way too many ads, and costs way too much to get rid of them. I know the developer needs to make money, but keep the ads to just the annoying ones after I finish a puzzle. Having ads pop up as I’m playing is annoying. 2) having to spend 3 coins to play an archived puzzle even though I’ve already solved said puzzle and I’m trying to get a better time/get more stars is absurd. If you fix those issues
Please consider.
by GC** on 2018/03/27 18:30
It’s a great game but when the puzzle is completed an icon comes up to go to the next puzzle. I want to look at it for a minute before moving forward. Please consider giving the puzzle solver a moment to review the work before blocking the masterpiece. It’s great puzzles, but letters stick and won’t move. Also you need to offer more of a chance to get coins. I will keep playing but can’t afford to buy coins.
Great way to learn how to do them
by Paynis127602598 on 2018/02/19 03:21
I have never been good at crossword puzzles. Trying to do the ones in the newspaper cause me to just get frustrated and quit. That app is great because, by having an option to have it let you know once you have a word correct, it makes starting out possible. Hopefully I will get good enough at them that eventually I will not need this crutch but I’m only on day 5 so we will see.
Customer service is terrible!
by Luc's Nana on 2018/09/28 15:29
Do not play this game unless you want to spend money! Crossword puzzles are fun. This game is frustrating. They close out the availability to the puzzle at 10pm UTC. I live in the United States and if I don’t get to the daily puzzle early in the day I miss that puzzle OR I have to spend coins to play it. I contacted customer support about the timing of puzzle availability and they apologized and offered 10 coins... that was a week ago and today I have 0 coins! I used to have 26 before all this happened and now, not only did I not receive the 10 coins but now have lost all my coins. Deleting the app...way too frustrating.
Giving incorrect answers to clues, ads pop up in middle of puzzles
by Suecq58 on 2018/10/21 23:55
I’m currently working on a puzzle, asked to reveal core t letters, and the answers were all wrong! Meat used in hamburger is NOT ‘NEON’, bullet measurement is caliber, not the made up word this puzzle is coming up with. PLUS, it won’t allow me to make the corrections. Obviously a major glitch! I’ve recently had issues when an ad pops up in the middle of a puzzle. Another glitch? I like this crossword app, but I’m beginning to question the accuracy of the answers, and frustration with the abundance of ads that pop up.
Fun but eats up coins too rapidly. Excessively expensive.
by NotQuiteAntiquatedButClose on 2017/10/15 08:11
On the positive side, they sometimes use words I'm not always familiar with and so I can actually learn from the game. UPDATE: Things have changed during an update and not for the better. If I can’t correctly finish a puzzle and don’t have enough coins for help, I am prevented from going to the calendar and trying archive puzzles or specialized game puzzles. It is like I am locked onto a page I can go no further on. Any body reading this review who cares to respond?
Many Quarrels
by Wringsgeoshut on 2018/06/27 04:23
I have many issues with this game and are as follows: 1. You are scored, it appears, on how long it takes you to finish the entire crossword. So it isn’t appreciated, nor fair, to interrupt gameplay with ads. Stopping in the middle of writing a word is frustrating and often leads to mistakes being made when it kicks back on. 2. The crosswords are too easy that is almost insulting. 3. The app is busy with icons and useless crap. 4. The entire coins concept is just another ploy to get you to spend money which, if you’re a crossword enthusiast, we’re probably all too smart to do; so it’s a terrible business model, honestly. ... and a myriad of other annoyances. However, it IS a crossword puzzle and that’s the main motivation to download so it’s not that terrible. For that reason only is why this will receive 3 stars. It’s “meh”.
Great!
by Mariecrtdls on 2019/05/18 05:48
I love, love, LOVE this app!! It’s most definitely the best crossword app. And other then the ads for other games (which that’s on every app), there’s not those annoying constant pop up trying to get you to buy coins or puzzle packs either, which makes it more enjoyable. The puzzles themselves are also fun and challenging, but not so hard you cannot finish the puzzle.
Just like olden game
by DeafGuy876 on 2018/06/11 23:37
Almost feel like playing on the paper version of crossword puzzle. If experience frustration when doing on paper version, this will not make any different in tablet version. Also if experience breeze for doing the same thing with the paper version, it wouldn’t change the experience while using the tablet.
Enjoy!
by Bemb2 on 2018/08/11 21:04
This game was advertised in another game I play and I almost never am interested in the advertised game but decided to give this one a try. I’ve been playing it for about a month now and am really enjoy it! I wouldn’t be without the “show wrong answer” feature. I also enjoy doing the puzzle with my husband who is great at crossword puzzles.
Love crosswords but...
by Heyuonthewall on 2018/05/18 08:46
This app typically provides a great experience, but is frustrating occasionally. I like the mini puzzles, but watching an ad after completing each one is tiresome. Also, if you’re going to put puzzle packs behind a coin gate, make it easier to earn coins. I mean, 100 coins for 1 pack isn’t bad until you find you’re only earning 1 coin each time you complete a puzzle. I miss 2 Across.
Fun and enjoyable
by funnninsun on 2018/04/22 13:20
The app is great and I enjoy the crossword puzzles. It does freeze up at times, not often, but for the most part works great. I just would like to see that the coins that are earned don’t disappear. I left and can back to app the next day at one pint and started with zero coins. I am sure this is a small fix and all will be well with the app after an update. I do recommend it even though.
Great app. Need to fix sound
by Uh oh!? on 2018/07/10 22:55
I like everything about this app except one thing: you can’t use it while listening to music/podcasts. For some reason the app turns off all background audio while using it. Hoping the developers can fix this so I don’t have to choose between using the app and listening to podcasts during my commute (FYI podcasts are currently winning).
Pretty fun but challenges are bogus
by Spitcanjoe on 2019/04/27 00:59
There are a number of “challenges” you can do for coins that worked great at first but now I have had multiple that just reset themselves and lose all of my progress ( one of them would take 5 months to get back to). I have reached out to support but didn’t get a response. In the grand scheme of things it is no big deal, just really frustrating if you don’t want to have to pay real money for hints.
Puzzles have lots of errors
by etlreviews on 2018/11/01 18:13
Generally a fun crossword game but I’m really disappointed in the number of errors I’ve found in puzzles and the lack of any way to report them. You need to do better research to ensure your puzzle answers are correct!! Today’s puzzle has a question “currency in Switzerland” and the answer the puzzle requires is “euro”. That’s wrong. Switzerland still uses the Swiss Franc and never switched to the Euro. That’s easy information to find. Please do better.
October 18th, 2018 Puzzle
by Dpoplin on 2018/10/17 23:05
So far I’ve gotten all 3 star puzzles for the month so I was going for a perfect month and being able to collect the title of perfectionist and get 100 coins. Well today’s puzzle answers are screwed up! For example, 49 across. Meat used in hamburger? Beef you would think but no the answer came up as neon! What?? 40 down - the Joe Walsh hit is Life’s been good. Nope the answer was lints!! Please correct this mess!!
Fun but I hate the coins!
by Mecale on 2018/10/28 21:59
I love the crossword puzzles as a way to just sit and relax. However... I hate the coins. I hate having to watch videos multiple times and I despise giving my email address and information to an online source only to be sent entirely too many emails daily. I just wish we didn’t have to use coins or figure out how to get more in a different way.
Annoying
by $&@?56789214 on 2018/08/23 14:50
Sometimes when I’m all finished with the puzzle it will tell me I have some letters wrong so I go back and check everything and it’s still says that so I just stop playing. After awhile a notification will show on my screen asking if I’ve tried a certain word on this question so I’m thinking maybe that’s what’s not right so I’ll go back to try that word and it’s the word I’ve already put in there. Annoying!
Enjoyable when not completely busted
by jtgreen on 2018/07/02 16:17
The puzzles have been fun (if you ignore spelling and grammar errors). However there are two major bugs in this app that I can’t recommend it to anyone until they are fixed. First: annoying audio issues. Before the last update, I turned off sounds in the menu however ads still had FULL volume that would play even with the phone on mute. AFTER the update, I still have those issues AND now the app will stop any podcast or music I have playing when it opens. Second: I’ve yet to have a puzzle where the keyboard doesn’t completely lock up resulting in me having to kill the app and reopen it to continue. A lesser nitpick: you have to “pay” 20 tokens to turn on wrong answer highlighting. There’s no way to turn it off outside of puzzles so you automatically lose 20 tokens when you start the next puzzle.
Too many ads
by Shouldelete on 2018/07/22 19:41
The puzzles are good, the ads are a necessary evil between puzzles and wouldn’t mind watching ads to unlock puzzles instead of trying to earn coins to do so...but the ones that pop up during the middle of a puzzle are REALLY unnecessary, and some of the ads do lock up, having to hard close the app and start back up. I understand an app need to make money from advertising, but it does detract from the game overall.
Annoying pop ups
by bjancbear on 2018/01/26 00:23
I go to get in on the pack puzzles and this annoying Southwest Michigan vacation pops up and freezes my I pad. I then have to shut it down then wait for a while to turn it back on. I also do not always get the coins after watching videos. If you his keeps up I will delete the game.
Where did offerwall go?
by Lickety lips on 2019/02/03 01:05
I love this app. Play it every single day, and find myself back dating and playing older puzzles. I used to be able to earn coins through the offerwall, but it’s gone away and tells me to try back later. I’ve tried for 4 days now and it still won’t show the offerwall. Is that something you’re not offering anymore? Or is it an issue that needs to be corrected. Please respond! Thanks!
Would be way better if there were less ads, or an ad free option
by PandaPastry on 2018/09/11 09:41
I literally only play this game so I can get my fix of crosswords and this is the only one that’s straightforward and appealing with ranging sizes of puzzles. I absolutely hate the ad frequency though: once after every puzzle I’ll deal with, sure, but ads literally while in the middle of one? I want to give this app 5 stars but the ad frequency is so bad that it hinders my enjoyment just that much. I spend half my time watching and staring at ads more than I do playing the actual puzzles.

Update issues
by Chris94550 on 2019/07/21 01:04
I love this crossword app but after this last update it freezes up regularly so I have to kill the app and restart. I am running an older version of IOS(10.3.3) for specific reasons so that might be the issue.
Enjoying

Free 10 letters
by jskdjwowospkxnfkdkd on 2019/07/17 15:11
I didn’t like when i automatically get the free letters after watching the video. I wanted to save it until I really need it.
Aggravating!
by Gdar78 on 2019/07/17 14:21
Buttons that cause you to 'spend' coins are located so close to the bottom of the grid that you hit them erroneously. Words are either too easy or some obscure topic you would never know. And yet I keep playing!?
Unfair
by naupendo on 2019/07/16 21:13
There are pauses and interruptions if you try to go back and forth in the grid where you lose time then you lose stars. Now you have to work within 8 mins to get 3 stars.
Not bad
by mechers on 2019/07/16 09:10
It’s a good app, but I don’t like the new way that they want to make you pay for the app. I am happy with the way it is and I’m not going to buy a package just to get more mini games and so on. Just keep it the way it is, it’s fine.
Music not needed!
by bookslady on 2019/07/15 23:07
Crosswords can be annoying alone let alone having ads and music waft through while solving
Daily Kick-off
by Wykatmom on 2019/07/11 14:06
These crosswords are challenging, fun, and always get the brain going to solve. The themes are great, too. Science, nature, sports, Star Wars, even. Political climate and current affairs. I look forward to a new puzzle each morning.
Love this game
by JANDKSMOM on 2019/07/11 12:16
Love this crossword, not to easy or hard. Right in the middle so it doesn’t sprain my brain. My husband and I compete to see who can beat whom in time. So fun

Pretty Disappointing
by wOrDpLaYEr01928374651029384756 on 2019/07/08 02:15
First i gave this review 2 stars instead of 1 or none because I really think this app has a lot of potential to be great. However half of the time the game completely freezes and you have to exit the game completely and reboot and the other half of the time if you complete one of the mini packs (whether it’s a pack you’ve paid for with coins you’ve earned and got added to your coin bank, or a free pack that was just added to your minis list) I don’t receive the reward listed upon completion. I’ve finished more than half a dozen packs with the “prize” clearly shown at the start of the 10, 12 or 15 mini puzzle packs and got nothing in return (I’ve finished packs with rewards ranging from 15 up to one pack that I paid for that had 50 coins upon completion) I’ve sent notices to their email support, I get an email verifying they have my complaint and that they will work on and fix the problem. Then 2-3 days later I get an app update but nothing actually gets fixed. I actually really do like the app, I like the wide variety of crossword puzzles to choose from, and that they offer daily puzzles and daily minis for free. I’m hesitant to just delete it out of frustration because I do like the concept that much. Its just irritating when the screen freezes or finishing a pack that I should collect 30 coins for and I get nothing (even more when I paid coins to get the pack) I think there are several glitches that need to be fixed and it would easily get a 5 star rating
Love it!
by Brooklynnpsl on 2019/07/07 19:19
Better than playing some mindless game. Freezes every so often, but otherwise, it is wonderful:)
Ugh
by tul75 on 2019/07/06 15:20
I get pep messages “yaaay you beat 78% of players play now to finish” I go to play and the game is STUCK! Pleeeeeaaase fix this sooooon I am losing coins
Freezes
by anothersurvey on 2019/07/05 13:58
This would be my favorite if it didn’t freeze it freezes all the time so pointless. I never had so much trouble with a game app. Fix the freeze it all considered re-downloading
Great fun

Bad app
by jejeejjvskwu on 2019/07/04 20:36
It’s a very fun game, but it freezes on me all the time. And when I go back to the app it either takes me to a different puzzles or it entirely erases the one I was on
Addicted
by Wsherr69 on 2019/07/03 22:14
I love this game. I’m totally addicted. My wife is too. Helps to pass the time.
Good Game But...
by MN Jeff in TX on 2019/07/03 10:38
Don’t like the 20 coin penalty to check one or two “wrong letters”.
Freeze
by RIH213 on 2019/07/02 22:34
I like this game, but every time I fill in a few blanks the game freezes up. I have to turn it off for a few seconds then turn it back on for a few more letters, then freeze up again! So aggravating!!! I can’t play it anymore! Please fix this problem!!
Freezing!
by Cubs fan100 on 2019/07/02 09:44
The game keeps freezing up during play.
Game now freezes since update
by Saseeshaz on 2019/06/30 21:34
Love playing this game but since I updated it a day ago it is now constantly freezing. I have to close out the game and reopen it. I also have not been getting any videos for me to earn extra coins. So frustrated I want to stop playing and delete it from my phone
Repetitive answers, Christianity biased and schemes
by Inner cool on 2019/06/29 16:37
Multiple puzzles have repetitive answers, that seem to be rather basic and requires no critical thinking. There seems to be a Christian bias, ie how many commandments, brother of Cain and Abel, and more. No other religious question are posed, only Christian. There is a setting to unknowingly drain your coins every time you play a new puzzle that will show you wrong answers which cost 20 coins a game.
Ability to track wrong words
by Bradmed6 on 2019/06/28 19:19
Needs functionality without added purchase to view incorrect responses while working on a puzzle.
Mini daily puzzle
by Zacfire18 on 2019/06/27 05:34
It would add to my enjoyment of the game if I could see a completed puzzle for more than a flash.
Generally fun, but...
by Tjinsa on 2019/06/24 19:28
Glitches and crashes due to ad interference is incredibly annoying. Coin earning/spending seems shady as heck. Will most likely delete app after a few more puzzles.
Good crossword but coins are hard to get
by falenag on 2019/06/23 22:09
I really like this game but it is really frustrating when you finish it and there is 1 or 2 letters wrong. It costs 10 coins to get 10 letters or 20 to show what letters are wrong. That watching 2 or 4 ads. The mini games are worth 1 coin. Also it is just too expensive to join and get more free games
Fun crosswords
by E11ie49 on 2019/06/19 16:07
Lots of fun to work these puzzles!
More coins, please
by mimideni on 2019/06/19 12:53
I like the app and enjoy working the puzzles. I would like it if more coins were awarded with the completion of the puzzle.

More time
by Bajane on 2019/06/17 02:15
I like the minis best, but there should be more time to solve than one minute to get three stars.

Went down hill
by Tso3300 on 2019/06/16 02:48
I loved playing this game until the last update when it made you wait 2 hours in between videos to earn coins.
Oh, the Noise!

by mmetcalfe91 on 2019/06/12 21:14
I thoroughly enjoy doing the crossword puzzles. I don’t mind waiting for the new ones and don’t care about the coins. It’s just a fun way to pass the time.
Would be more stars, but...
by CTLady410 on 2019/06/10 18:52
I really enjoy the daily puzzles, but I used to be able to earn additional coins by watching videos, sometimes up to 10 videos per day were available, earning me an additional 50 coins, but they have since discontinued this practice, and now I can only watch 1 video per day for only 5 coins. When each puzzle could potentially cost you 20+ coins, if you want to see the wrong letters or buy a word, you use up those coins very quickly. I know they did this to make you purchase additional coins, but I feel they should have kept the option to view several videos to earn free coins rather than make you buy them. Chances are when I run out of coins I’ll stop playing the game and will look for another crossword puzzle app.

Best crossword puzzles out there. You can ACTUALLY win coins by finishing. New concept as far as I know because I don’t know of any other app that does that. Bravo!
Mostly fun
by Foxx8614 on 2019/06/03 02:47
Mostly fun but sometimes the answers are way off. It’s frustrating when some questions are not things that are common or are from another question. But most can be figured out. It is a fun game to pass the time. However, I hate the recent time change for the daily puzzle. Go back to the way it was!

4 Stars
by Gah11 on 2019/05/27 13:30
I enjoy playing this game. It’s nice to see what letters are wrong too, very helpful. I gave it 4 stars because you have to use your tokens to play any archived games, even yesterday’s. Other than that I like it!
Points
by Cimmindy on 2019/05/27 02:08
Yes, I find it’s slow, too. But there’s no way to earn points and it costs too much to show wrong letters. Another crossword puzzle I play lets you watch an ad to get free letters. After all this time playing I only have like 270 points and it costs 20 points to show wrong letters.

Words spelled incorrectly
by dgail on 2019/05/21 04:51
Loved this game but except when the answer is spelled incorrectly and blows my timing score. For example a clue was “NBC (name of show) and ABC(name of show) are both programs that - answer AIRER. AIRER is a rack to dry clothes. It should have been AIRED. UGH!!!!
Pop ups
by Block417 on 2019/05/20 15:12
Too many pop up ads, also very expensive to purchase and if purchased do ads go away
Great!
by Mariecrtdls on 2019/05/18 05:48
I love, love, LOVE this app!! It’s most definitely the best crossword app. And other then the ads for other games (which that’s on every app), there’s not those annoying constant pop up trying to get you to buy coins or puzzle packs either, which makes it more enjoyable. The puzzles themselves are also fun and challenging, but not so hard you cannot finish the puzzle.

I Play Everyday!
by Joy 💋68 on 2019/05/16 13:43
To me, this is the best Crossword game I’ve tried. I do the “Daily” and the “Mini” puzzles for free. I can even play past months’ (days) at no cost! I do pay a few bucks here and there to use the “Show Wrong” answers -which to me, is worth it. The puzzles are fun because some answers are easy; others- more difficult. The only problem I have is that once in awhile I accidentally hit the key to “Show 10 Letters” which uses paid coins. That’s because it’s on the bottom of the game and my phone. Later, I might try their other puzzle offers. For now would like to say “Thanks” for making a great game! Joy B.
too easy!!
by Wizardly wizard no play on 2019/05/14 12:09
It’s a fun app, and I enjoy it for its purpose, but most of the full puzzles are way too easy (I’ve been finishing them in less than five minutes) I downloaded this app because I was frustrated and didn’t want to buy some of the puzzles that New York Times Crossword had, but I need a challenge. It might be beneficial to include easy, medium, and hard puzzles for different people. (Similar to how the New York Times has easy puzzles on Monday and hard puzzles on Sunday). I still enjoy the app for when the NY Times fall short- it has a nice format without too many black squares in the puzzles and some of the clues are clever. I would download this app if you are a beginner at crosswords or if the NY Times crosswords are too difficult.

by Ptness247 on 2019/05/05 13:23
I love the crosswords but the whole earning coins thing is annoying. I don’t have social media accounts so I lose the ability to earn any stars and it becomes really frustrating. It would be perfect if they changed this aspect.

There are a number of “challenges” you can do for coins that worked great at first but now I have had multiple that just reset themselves and lose all of my progress ( one of them would take 5 months to get back to). I have reached out to support but didn’t get a response. In the grand scheme of things it is no big deal, just really frustrating if you don’t want to have to pay real money for hints.

Need help.
by Tuffy 8/9/2006 on 2018/06/09 04:50
I like the app, but the one thing I don’t like is that once you fill in the word one way and go to the next way everything is fine. But if you go back and forth from across to down and back again. The boxes that you filled in don’t get skipped, you have to fill them in again. Which makes it longer to finish the game and harder to beat your time. And if you try to fill in a word with some letters missing, trying to guess the blank letter, you have to keep hitting the blank box with every guess. That takes way to long to guess the word. Hope you can fix this issue the next time without changing the good things you had before.
Fun when not Frustrating
by LolasMum33 on 2017/12/22 00:10
The puzzles are generally great and the puzzle packs are a fun idea. The problems include slow, sometimes frozen, letters; usually it works fine but, there seems to sometimes be a delay when inputting letters. Also, there has been more than one puzzle where I've discovered typos. I wish there were more and easier ways to earn coins in order to buy puzzle packs and play past puzzles you have missed. However, my biggest complaint, other than speed, is that with the latest update, there is now a permanent ad blocking the "Spin" feature. I enjoyed using the five free spins when I was stuck on just one word or letter and wanting to beat the clock. The whole top bar is now completely blocked by an ad on this version on my iphone. I've tried everything I can think of to remove it (other than spending money) including tapping on it, just to have it replaced by another ad, and turning off all access to the Internet. I would purchase the app, if that is an option but, I would first like to be reassured that the freezing/speed issues will be taken care of and that I definitely will have access to the free spins. Overall, I enjoy this app and would recommend to others but, would warn them of the above issues. I will continue to use the app unless the speed issue becomes too exaggerated. I really do hope they are working on these issues. I look forward to finding out!
Updated review
by PyromamaK on 2017/12/15 23:16
The latest annoying thing is I have 2 games in progress from several months ago. If I click one it takes me to the correct puzzle but then freezes. The puzzle is shown with no clues anyway. No matter how many times I’ve tried going back to those 2 specific dates the game freezes or there’s a black screen. Please fix! Could’ve been 5 starts but...I agree with most reviews that the coin system is severely lacking. Overall a great game but 2 things I have a real problem with: one is the volume when doing the bonus packs for instance. I have the sound turned off in the controls but when an ad plays the volume is ON which is not great if you’re sitting in a waiting room for example, plus it’s just downright annoying in the first place. Second is the small ads at the bottom of puzzles. I have epilepsy and the ads blinked and flashed so rapidly I thought I was going to have a seizure. If it happens again I will uninstall the game.
Would’ve been 4* but...
by Anna Tru on 2018/01/24 23:42
I used this app every night as my chill out from a long day of workin at a prison. I absolutely love it. Some words are challenging. Some are easy. It’s a good balance. Also some people on here complain about coins. But compared to other apps, you get more for your efforts. But I had a Situation where I accidentally made a purchase. Therein is where this app gets 2*. I had used the help button options a few times. It sends you to your email app to send an email. Then you’ll get an automatic response saying someone will get back you (typically within 24 hours) and within less than 2 hours I got a personal response with the next steps to help my situation. Well this time I didn’t get that second response. It has been 3 days and I don’t dare play the app. I was able to resolve the situation, but not through this app, through Apple iTunes or something like that.

When each puzzle could potentially cost you 20+ coins, if you want to see the wrong letters or buy a word, you use up those coins very quickly. I know they did this to make you purchase additional coins, but I feel they should have kept the option to view several videos to earn free coins rather than make you buy them. Chances are when I run out of coins I’ll stop playing the game and will look for another crossword puzzle app.
Don’t Buy Coins
by GFM Reviewer on 2019/04/16 18:02
I really enjoy doing the puzzles, but get really frustrated when I finish a puzzle and random amounts of my coins have been used without me even knowing it was happening or why. I never play a puzzle when it says I have to use coins to play - in other words I only play when it claims the puzzle is “free” or “free with viewing an ad video”, but I’ll get done with the puzzle and sometimes upward of 30 coins will have been used without my knowledge - and this is without using any of the “help” items at the bottom of the puzzle which use coins. I wouldn’t care as much if I only ever used coins I earned just by playing puzzles, but sometimes I buy the coins so it is really irritating. It would be nice if something would pop up warning you that something you’re about to do is going to cost you and list the cost.
I Play Everyday!
by Joy 💋68 on 2019/05/16 13:43
To me, this is the best Crossword game I’ve tried. I do the “Daily” and the “Mini” puzzles for free. I can even play past months’ (days) at no cost! I do pay a few bucks here and there to use the “Show Wrong” answers -which to me, is worth it. The puzzles are fun because some answers are easy; others- more difficult. The only problem I have is that once in awhile I accidentally hit the key to “Show 10 Letters” which uses paid coins. That’s because it’s on the bottom of the game and my phone. Later, I might try their other puzzle offers. For now would like to say “Thanks” for making a great game! Joy B.
too easy!!
by Wizardly wizard no play on 2019/05/14 12:09
It’s a fun app, and I enjoy it for its purpose, but most of the full puzzles are way too easy (I’ve been finishing them in less than five minutes) I downloaded this app because I was frustrated and didn’t want to buy some of the puzzles that New York Times Crossword had, but I need a challenge. It might be beneficial to include easy, medium, and hard puzzles for different people. (Similar to how the New York Times has easy puzzles on Monday and hard puzzles on Sunday). I still enjoy the app for when the NY Times fall short- it has a nice format without too many black squares in the puzzles and some of the clues are clever. I would download this app if you are a beginner at crosswords or if the NY Times crosswords are too difficult.
Ads will give you anxiety!!
by GeekyGirl007 on 2018/06/30 15:41
You are forced to look at an ad after every puzzle you complete which consists of forcing you to stare at scary health related articles. It forces you to look at two articles for 15-20 seconds per article before allowing you to return to the game. If you have anxiety, especially health anxiety, I wouldn’t recommend downloading this game. It will only make your anxiety worse. If you don’t have anxiety, then this game will probably give you anxiety with all it’s horrible scary health ads. On top of that, you will also get full page pop up ads right in the middle of working on a puzzle. So you are getting ads DURING each puzzle AND AFTER!! If they fixed the ad problem in this game I’d rate 5 stars but the ads ruin the experience. I don’t mind ads as I know they support developers but in this case, the ads are just extremely stressful and we already have enough stress in our daily lives. We don’t need to be stressed out more when we are just trying to relax with a game! Very highly not recommended. There are lots of other crossword puzzles to choose from. I’ll be searching for a new one. I’d love to give this one another try in the future if the ads are fixed.
Updated review
by Madre Liz on 2018/06/04 18:26
The developers are very responsive to feedback, and I appreciate it. Not only have they restored most of my missing games, but they credited me with points/coins. I really do enjoy these puzzles, and for the next thing, hope they will develop a game with medium-level difficulty! I was really enjoying this, and even purchased several coins, but after having several games interrupted by long ads and having entire months of games deleted, I’m leaving money on the table and deleting it.
Glitches Ruin The Game
by SydThaKid13 on 2019/02/26 13:22
I’ve been playing this game for a while now. Daily games are listed as being “free” if played on the day they are released while older, archived puzzles cost coins to access. I have noticed that I am being charged coins whether I am playing the daily “free” game or not; in other words, “free” is a misnomer. Additionally, a user is supposed to be able to access two ads to view for 5 coins apiece every two hours (“Watch for free $”). However, I have to repeatedly tap the ad button and go through multiple “no ad is available right now” messages before one will play. These issues make this game less fun for me to play and I am rethinking whether it is even worth it.
Fun when not being cheated
by Mamahue23 on 2018/09/19 20:55
I have come across some problems lately that have caused me to be really suspicious, first I thought that just maybe I was over reacting to the puzzles not closing out when I was finished with them. It says your almost there, but then I was rechecking all my answers and nothing was wrong with them. So I took pictures of my answers, then I paid the coins and took pictures again. Wells, guess what the puzzle was exactly the same no changes at all.. NONE. So this has me very upset and frustrated. Not to mention angry because it’s taking my money to finish out my puzzles in a timely manner.
Love This Crossword App
by lady7577 on 2019/01/31 16:55
I discovered this app last year and I look forward to playing it everyday. The crosswords are very good and almost always enjoyable. The only thing that I dislike is that when you do some of the activities to get points, they don’t always work right, but I can live with that. My favorite thing about this app is that once you use the hint to show all mistakes, it continues to work on the other puzzles you work that day. Give it a try if you love crossword puzzles as much as I do!
Would be great - BUT..
by EJ3B on 2018/07/17 21:16
I love crosswords - and these ones are really fun. The trouble is that I burn through too many too fast apparently. They make it impossible to get coins (which are REQUIRED to play a new puzzle). You can watch 2 videos every 2 hours which earns you 10 coins. To buy more coins - the LEAST you can spend is $2.99. That’s insane. For $2.99 I could buy a book of 10,000 crosswords. There have to be better, cheaper crossword games avail for download. I’m deleting this bc it’s nothing but an annoyance for me when I jump on to kill 10 mins & they tell me I have an hour & a half left to wait before I can WATCH VIDEOS to earn MAYBE enough coins to play ONE more game.
Disappointed in changes
by wooktoots on 2018/05/23 18:00
I would have given this app a much higher score, but some recent changes made in the updates have annoyed me. My main issue is, despite me having checked the setting that shows incorrect letters placed on the puzzle, that doesn’t happen. So, now, if I want to have help with o correction I have to forfeit 20 points. The points are not easy to com by, as 4 videos have to be viewed in order to earn 20 points. Plus, my videos are printed being show in Spanish. Considering deleting the app because what was once part of play now has to be earned by wasting time on videos.
I’ll give a 5 rating if....
by Mswinz on 2017/11/16 05:01
I love crossword puzzles. So; in turn, I love this app because it’s a crossword app. But there are a few problems that need to be fixed. 1)When typing in the answer instead of the letter showing you can be charged with choosing a help hint - bottom row of keyboard too close to hints. That’s 10-20 coin. 2)No daily bonus with sign in coins. 3)Earning coins is too time consuming esp. for the small amt earned. Once u follow directions u may or may not get coins and I’m frustrated with the huge amount of unwanted emails and phone calls from solicitors who should not have my contact information
Crazy Clues that you’d NEVER guess
by RevHotRod on 2018/07/26 10:30
I have done about 25 or more puzzles and minis. EVERY puzzle has multiple clues or answers that are very dumb and unconnected or just things that DO NOT even go with each other even after you figure it out by filling in other answers. It is very upsetting to not even have a shot at solving the clues. Some are easy, some are hard but some have No Business even being put in here. The “theme” for the puzzles are very weak and usually only about 10% of answers are theme related. Some answers are used in almost every puzzle. Like : A period of time-: “ERA”. A much better job must be done to make people want to come back and play. Disappointed
It’s OK, but not great
by Wickedlilg on 2018/08/22 21:07
It’s a crossword game so it’s not like I expected anything new, but I do expect there to not be so many spelling errors. There’s been several boards that I’ve been stuck on because I just can’t figure it out...just to realize that THEY have a typo. Examples include them spelling Hola (Spanish for hello) as Ola, and actor Sean Astin’s last name as Aston. It’s pretty crappy on their part considering that you then end up resorting to spending your difficult to get coins on having them reveal which letters you have “wrong”, even though THEY’RE the ones who are wrong. I suspect they do it to try to get you to spend your money.
EXTREMELY buggy and NO support
by FroedricFr2 on 2018/08/26 03:42
I have been enjoying the app (daily themed crossword puzzles), but lately I’m about ready to delete it and go with a different one. I’ve tried messaging in-app but don’t receive any response or even acknowledgement. But I’ve had completed puzzles disappear on me and display as never been opened. I’ve had crossword clues and their answers CHANGE on me in the MIDDLE of play. In addition, my spouse and I appear to have different interfaces with different features such as a bonus archived puzzle upon completing the daily puzzle which I’ve never seen on mine (yes, we each have the same current updates). I’m just extremely frustrated. Was really liking the app but about ready to call it quits.
Could be better.
by flordia georgia line on 2018/07/03 21:06
How about more coins per ad viewing, and zero time between the time that you can view ads? Most of us would prefer to stay ON the app to gain coins, not going out of our way just to gather a FEW. 4/5 of the options that you have to get coins are practically pointless- downloading an app you do not want and ordering something off of it, or reaching a certain level? How about wasting your time completing a few games within that app, just to delete it after that? Whoever downloads this, here’s a message: you’re better off playing with paper and a pencil.
Fun but frustrating
by BoogalooGq on 2018/06/23 18:57
I really enjoy the crosswords, but this app kills me with the constant barrage of advertisements. I understand that free apps need to make their money somewhere, and specifically iOS applications are worst at it, but having one pop up every time you finish a puzzle, while you’re working on the puzzle, before you start a puzzle, and constantly running banner adds are just awful. To top it off, the coin system of purchasing archived puzzles really dampers the experience as well (although the free mini puzzles are available which is a shining light in an otherwise abysmal experience). This app is 100% made for profit, I get that, but could be far less obnoxious about it.
Very addictive!
by etrayn3 on 2017/09/16 21:20
Love this game! It's very addictive, you want to play for hours. I would have given it a five, but the controls for inputting the answers are a little flaky. They sometimes don't respond properly and enter data in the wrong field. It's a minor problem which with slow and careful manipulation of the controls can be avoided, but will cost you clock time. The puzzle variety is good and varied, but you have to purchase them or watch ads to get gold to buy them.
Needs less pop up ads and screen revision
by crosswrdcraze on 2018/05/19 15:36
This game is very frustrating. In rhe middle of entering a wird in the grid an ad pops up you cant get rid of making it impossible to earn 3 stars. My screen has been locked on a pop up ad for over 4 hours. Also the screen needs reworked. When you choose a letter from the bottom row of keys you sometimes accidentally hit a help button wasting coins and hints Please consider putting on another screen with a link or get rid of the stream of ads at the top and reposition. Letters do sometimes freeze up also. Very frustrating to say the least. I do enjoy the puzzles but about to erase app its nit worth the constant frustrations.👎
Like This Game But....
by Joe in MI on 2018/02/14 00:07
This a nice but as a person of some years I am not into today music or movies. How about when you say something is classic put in a CLASSIC MOVIE THEME or in music something from the Golden Age of Rock and Roll. And just other so called free apps you never really give many free coins. I also try to get free coins by watching ads. The problem with that is they freeze up a lot, especially the ones for the Marines. I have the utmost respect for the Marine Corps and don’t mind watching the ads but not when it freezes up my game and I end up not getting the coins.
Could be much better
by El paso crone on 2018/10/04 11:31
These puzzles are ok on a sleepy morning when I’m not quite awake but, after a few of them, you begin to see too many repeats like UMA for the actress or ION, IRIS, etc. Also, crosswords aren't supposed to invent words like incorrect abbreviations for things like ‘dele’ for delete when the correct abbreviation is ‘del’ or blatant misspellings of known words. Lastly, some clues and/ or answers are just plain wrong. I have been playing only 6 weeks and have now written to the company 7 times about incorrect clues and/or answers such as: 1) referring to a “Dame” as ‘A knight’s lady’ when a Dame is, in fact, a woman knighted in her own right 2) calling runes ‘magical symbols’ when they are, in fact, a form of ancient writing used by the Norse. 3) defining ‘iambic’ as ‘a unit of poetry’ when it is, in fact a metric measurement in a specific TYPE of poetry. 4) calling a firefly a ‘fire worm’ when it is, in fact, a beetle and not a worm at all. 5) referring to multiple ELK as ELKS.
Love!
by kelsruiz on 2017/11/26 01:09
This is definitely my favorite crossword app!! However, I do miss the spinner that gave letters and coins. Would love that feature to come back if possible. I also do not like the hint buttons being beneath the keyboard. It's really easy to accidentally hit "+10 letter" or "show word." Any way to move that to the top of the screen, since the spinner was taken away? Just a suggestion. Love the app, just want to make it better!
Fun but WAY too many ads
by Joe2D2 on 2018/10/07 03:14
This app is a nice challenge but there are a lot of things that need to be removed in order for me to give a better rating. 1) way too many ads, and costs way too much to get rid of them. I know the developer needs to make money, but keep the ads to just the annoying ones after I finish a puzzle. Having ads pop up as I’m playing is annoying. 2) having to spend 3 coins to play an archived puzzle even though I’ve already solved said puzzle and I’m trying to get a better time/get more stars is absurd. If you fix those issues
Please consider.
by GC** on 2018/03/27 18:30
It’s a great game but when the puzzle is completed an icon comes up to go to the next puzzle. I want to look at it for a minute before moving forward. Please consider giving the puzzle solver a moment to review the work before blocking the masterpiece. It’s great puzzles, but letters stick and won’t move. Also you need to offer more of a chance to get coins. I will keep playing but can’t afford to buy coins.
Great way to learn how to do them
by Paynis127602598 on 2018/02/19 03:21
I have never been good at crossword puzzles. Trying to do the ones in the newspaper cause me to just get frustrated and quit. That app is great because, by having an option to have it let you know once you have a word correct, it makes starting out possible. Hopefully I will get good enough at them that eventually I will not need this crutch but I’m only on day 5 so we will see.
Customer service is terrible!
by Luc's Nana on 2018/09/28 15:29
Do not play this game unless you want to spend money! Crossword puzzles are fun. This game is frustrating. They close out the availability to the puzzle at 10pm UTC. I live in the United States and if I don’t get to the daily puzzle early in the day I miss that puzzle OR I have to spend coins to play it. I contacted customer support about the timing of puzzle availability and they apologized and offered 10 coins... that was a week ago and today I have 0 coins! I used to have 26 before all this happened and now, not only did I not receive the 10 coins but now have lost all my coins. Deleting the app...way too frustrating.
Giving incorrect answers to clues, ads pop up in middle of puzzles
by Suecq58 on 2018/10/21 23:55
I’m currently working on a puzzle, asked to reveal core t letters, and the answers were all wrong! Meat used in hamburger is NOT ‘NEON’, bullet measurement is caliber, not the made up word this puzzle is coming up with. PLUS, it won’t allow me to make the corrections. Obviously a major glitch! I’ve recently had issues when an ad pops up in the middle of a puzzle. Another glitch? I like this crossword app, but I’m beginning to question the accuracy of the answers, and frustration with the abundance of ads that pop up.
Fun but eats up coins too rapidly. Excessively expensive.
by NotQuiteAntiquatedButClose on 2017/10/15 08:11
On the positive side, they sometimes use words I'm not always familiar with and so I can actually learn from the game. UPDATE: Things have changed during an update and not for the better. If I can’t correctly finish a puzzle and don’t have enough coins for help, I am prevented from going to the calendar and trying archive puzzles or specialized game puzzles. It is like I am locked onto a page I can go no further on. Any body reading this review who cares to respond?
Many Quarrels
by Wringsgeoshut on 2018/06/27 04:23
I have many issues with this game and are as follows: 1. You are scored, it appears, on how long it takes you to finish the entire crossword. So it isn’t appreciated, nor fair, to interrupt gameplay with ads. Stopping in the middle of writing a word is frustrating and often leads to mistakes being made when it kicks back on. 2. The crosswords are too easy that is almost insulting. 3. The app is busy with icons and useless crap. 4. The entire coins concept is just another ploy to get you to spend money which, if you’re a crossword enthusiast, we’re probably all too smart to do; so it’s a terrible business model, honestly. ... and a myriad of other annoyances. However, it IS a crossword puzzle and that’s the main motivation to download so it’s not that terrible. For that reason only is why this will receive 3 stars. It’s “meh”.
Great!
by Mariecrtdls on 2019/05/18 05:48
I love, love, LOVE this app!! It’s most definitely the best crossword app. And other then the ads for other games (which that’s on every app), there’s not those annoying constant pop up trying to get you to buy coins or puzzle packs either, which makes it more enjoyable. The puzzles themselves are also fun and challenging, but not so hard you cannot finish the puzzle.
Just like olden game
by DeafGuy876 on 2018/06/11 23:37
Almost feel like playing on the paper version of crossword puzzle. If experience frustration when doing on paper version, this will not make any different in tablet version. Also if experience breeze for doing the same thing with the paper version, it wouldn’t change the experience while using the tablet.
Enjoy!
by Bemb2 on 2018/08/11 21:04
This game was advertised in another game I play and I almost never am interested in the advertised game but decided to give this one a try. I’ve been playing it for about a month now and am really enjoy it! I wouldn’t be without the “show wrong answer” feature. I also enjoy doing the puzzle with my husband who is great at crossword puzzles.
Love crosswords but...
by Heyuonthewall on 2018/05/18 08:46
This app typically provides a great experience, but is frustrating occasionally. I like the mini puzzles, but watching an ad after completing each one is tiresome. Also, if you’re going to put puzzle packs behind a coin gate, make it easier to earn coins. I mean, 100 coins for 1 pack isn’t bad until you find you’re only earning 1 coin each time you complete a puzzle. I miss 2 Across.
Fun and enjoyable
by funnninsun on 2018/04/22 13:20
The app is great and I enjoy the crossword puzzles. It does freeze up at times, not often, but for the most part works great. I just would like to see that the coins that are earned don’t disappear. I left and can back to app the next day at one pint and started with zero coins. I am sure this is a small fix and all will be well with the app after an update. I do recommend it even though.
Great app. Need to fix sound
by Uh oh!? on 2018/07/10 22:55
I like everything about this app except one thing: you can’t use it while listening to music/podcasts. For some reason the app turns off all background audio while using it. Hoping the developers can fix this so I don’t have to choose between using the app and listening to podcasts during my commute (FYI podcasts are currently winning).
Pretty fun but challenges are bogus
by Spitcanjoe on 2019/04/27 00:59
There are a number of “challenges” you can do for coins that worked great at first but now I have had multiple that just reset themselves and lose all of my progress ( one of them would take 5 months to get back to). I have reached out to support but didn’t get a response. In the grand scheme of things it is no big deal, just really frustrating if you don’t want to have to pay real money for hints.
Puzzles have lots of errors
by etlreviews on 2018/11/01 18:13
Generally a fun crossword game but I’m really disappointed in the number of errors I’ve found in puzzles and the lack of any way to report them. You need to do better research to ensure your puzzle answers are correct!! Today’s puzzle has a question “currency in Switzerland” and the answer the puzzle requires is “euro”. That’s wrong. Switzerland still uses the Swiss Franc and never switched to the Euro. That’s easy information to find. Please do better.
October 18th, 2018 Puzzle
by Dpoplin on 2018/10/17 23:05
So far I’ve gotten all 3 star puzzles for the month so I was going for a perfect month and being able to collect the title of perfectionist and get 100 coins. Well today’s puzzle answers are screwed up! For example, 49 across. Meat used in hamburger? Beef you would think but no the answer came up as neon! What?? 40 down - the Joe Walsh hit is Life’s been good. Nope the answer was lints!! Please correct this mess!!
Fun but I hate the coins!
by Mecale on 2018/10/28 21:59
I love the crossword puzzles as a way to just sit and relax. However... I hate the coins. I hate having to watch videos multiple times and I despise giving my email address and information to an online source only to be sent entirely too many emails daily. I just wish we didn’t have to use coins or figure out how to get more in a different way.
Annoying
by $&@?56789214 on 2018/08/23 14:50
Sometimes when I’m all finished with the puzzle it will tell me I have some letters wrong so I go back and check everything and it’s still says that so I just stop playing. After awhile a notification will show on my screen asking if I’ve tried a certain word on this question so I’m thinking maybe that’s what’s not right so I’ll go back to try that word and it’s the word I’ve already put in there. Annoying!
Enjoyable when not completely busted
by jtgreen on 2018/07/02 16:17
The puzzles have been fun (if you ignore spelling and grammar errors). However there are two major bugs in this app that I can’t recommend it to anyone until they are fixed. First: annoying audio issues. Before the last update, I turned off sounds in the menu however ads still had FULL volume that would play even with the phone on mute. AFTER the update, I still have those issues AND now the app will stop any podcast or music I have playing when it opens. Second: I’ve yet to have a puzzle where the keyboard doesn’t completely lock up resulting in me having to kill the app and reopen it to continue. A lesser nitpick: you have to “pay” 20 tokens to turn on wrong answer highlighting. There’s no way to turn it off outside of puzzles so you automatically lose 20 tokens when you start the next puzzle.
Too many ads
by Shouldelete on 2018/07/22 19:41
The puzzles are good, the ads are a necessary evil between puzzles and wouldn’t mind watching ads to unlock puzzles instead of trying to earn coins to do so...but the ones that pop up during the middle of a puzzle are REALLY unnecessary, and some of the ads do lock up, having to hard close the app and start back up. I understand an app need to make money from advertising, but it does detract from the game overall.
Annoying pop ups
by bjancbear on 2018/01/26 00:23
I go to get in on the pack puzzles and this annoying Southwest Michigan vacation pops up and freezes my I pad. I then have to shut it down then wait for a while to turn it back on. I also do not always get the coins after watching videos. If you his keeps up I will delete the game.
Where did offerwall go?
by Lickety lips on 2019/02/03 01:05
I love this app. Play it every single day, and find myself back dating and playing older puzzles. I used to be able to earn coins through the offerwall, but it’s gone away and tells me to try back later. I’ve tried for 4 days now and it still won’t show the offerwall. Is that something you’re not offering anymore? Or is it an issue that needs to be corrected. Please respond! Thanks!
Would be way better if there were less ads, or an ad free option
by PandaPastry on 2018/09/11 09:41
I literally only play this game so I can get my fix of crosswords and this is the only one that’s straightforward and appealing with ranging sizes of puzzles. I absolutely hate the ad frequency though: once after every puzzle I’ll deal with, sure, but ads literally while in the middle of one? I want to give this app 5 stars but the ad frequency is so bad that it hinders my enjoyment just that much. I spend half my time watching and staring at ads more than I do playing the actual puzzles.
