Seemed pretty good until political ads appeared. Now, no thanks. Not playing that game.

by AudioPosting on 2020/01/18 19:25
I enjoyed the app and chose to accept ads in lieu of paying. If that was all you did, I would be fine. But your increasingly aggressive attempts to make me purchase the app are obnoxious and I have deleted the app (and contributed a one star rating). If you really don’t want to allow free ad supported access, don’t pretend otherwise. Very disappointing. Maybe you weren’t aware there are other crossword apps available.

by ret English teacher on 2020/01/18 15:47
I switched to your puzzles because they focus more on language than knowing TV stars and famous sports figures. It’s nice to learn words too. It is irritating to constantly be subject to ads every time I finish a puzzle. I notice you include slot machine music. I am not impressed nor drawn in. Otherwise I like this app.
Well designed
by DulcieC on 2020/01/18 14:22
I searched for a while for a word game that challenged me in a format without goofy characters and side games and one that didn’t bombard me with video ads for stupid games. This is it! I highly recommend this crossword game.
Ads
by kit1844 on 2020/01/17 18:19
This was a good app until I started getting inundated with political ads. Even in leisure, there is no escape from this nightmare.

I’ve never been big into crossword puzzles and then I found one I liked, but I don’t have money to constantly spend on games. This one is great, no money required and helpful hints when you’re stuck. I’m so happy to find something that doesn’t have tons of ads and is free. Thank you!

Screen doesn’t rotate
by Elizabeth 7777 on 2020/01/14 18:05
I like the game but the screen does not rotate when I use my ipad with an external keyboard. Seriously? I tried about 10 times now to provide my feedback but I keep getting “Nickname in Use” so I cannot send it....will keep trying.

by LaSuperSpanish on 2020/01/12 13:17
I got this app looking for crossword puzzles that would challenge me but not be too hard. That’s exactly what I got! These puzzles are perfect, and since they’re rated by difficulty, I’m never bored, and I’m never too frustrated. The settings let you Taylor the games to your every need. No complaints here - thank you for an awesome app!

This game doesn’t allow you to turn off the sound. I have tried on several occasions to slide the glider to off and it will not budge. There show be something different to change your settings
Love it
by IowaTracie on 2020/01/07 03:32
I really love this app. I love that you can pick which level you want and that you can adjust a lot of settings. I would recommend it to anyone who likes crosswords.
p. pasco if you see this i want more
by ?????? ? ? ??? ? ? ? on 2020/01/07 02:23
my biggest qualm is that lot of words are super repetitive within a particular creator, especially short ones (like “era” or “ccc” or “old” over and over). no one specifically, but generally across the options. so for example within one “pack” or whatnot i’ll have the same word multiple times and even multiple times within the same puzzle. i stopped doing the “easy” ones and that helped the repetitiveness. hints/solves you can use from the one across website are hardly ever right/helpful/even remotely possible with what’s “locked in” from being correct. the only puzzles i like are by p. pasco, so she or he should do some more. i finished the pack and now im bored again. i’m still going to play it because i don’t have a better option and in the grand scheme of things it’s really not that bad. overall i recommend. edit: i also like the ones by Gentry. need more Gentry and Pasco talent on this app asap!!! edit: i think i’m biased towards pasco because the content is young and fresh and interesting and incorporates some spanish. it’s things that are actually relevant to me. so maybe you need more young authors? idk, good luck!
Love it!
by BJ and Shadow on 2020/01/06 16:03
I love that you don’t have to have coins etc. You can play and get help when needed without a bunch of hassles!!!

Had to delete because of all the trump ads.
Good app but...
by busyone5 on 2019/12/29 00:04
Some of the puzzles have made up words. I tried to give a little leeway, but they need to at least have a basis of a real word or words.
Kicked out mid game
by Jeffy in Dallas on 2019/12/28 00:19
Been playing for weeks and today the app crashes mid game and when i go back in, my game is gone and all the packs now have individual charges for them that are around $3.99 per pack and this is in addition to an ad free charge. Well it was fun while it lasted. Bye.
Love the app
by Jamdahammer on 2019/12/27 12:57
Love the app!!! Could use more of the tougher puzzles, but I love it
Annoying tips
by Fiohgedsdvdehfewfgiyc on 2019/12/27 07:00
The tips just don’t stop and they take so long to load/dismiss. Makes the app tedious.

Reasonable Puzzles
by BitSlayer on 2019/12/22 20:14
Good app and seems to behave well. I really only have two complaints; 1) The puzzles seem to be repetitive for the words used, and 2) many of the clues and word spellings seem to UK. English oriented.

No more puzzles
by mplsdeano on 2019/12/17 22:00
After using and loving this app for months, the only puzzles available have to be purchased even after watching all of the commercials. Sad to see that. I’ll be deleting the app.
Too addicting
by JT f123 on 2019/12/17 05:03
I’m on this app every day! It’s such a wonderful way to stimulate my brain. I do crosswords when I eat, during commutes, and before I go to bed. I ask friends and family if they can solve some of the harder questions (I never google). I even send some of my friends text messages of the board! It’s too addicting to get through a whole puzzle and even fun to see how long you’ve spent on it (sometimes it adds up to hours!) I do have one suggestion. It gets pretty annoying to have to press the delete button through an entire correct word that is “locked” in order to get to a word you haven’t found yet/an empty box. I hope you can add a future feature (possibly an on-off setting so users can have a preference) that allows the delete button to skip locked letters in rows and columns. It would make it so much easier to navigate the whole puzzle. In addition, since I play this in bed, it would be really nice to have an inverted color scheme (white letters black background) so that it’s less hard on the eyes. Thanks for the daily entertainment!
Red Rock
by Yakuzadragon on 2019/12/16 14:11
I love this crossword app and I can do crosswords for hours. I love the fact that you don’t need to earn or purchase coins for the hints. I like the fact that your crosswords are not too hard nor are they too easy. I am playing on the easy section but I am sure I am in for more of a challenge when I switch to medium and hard puzzles. This app allows me to choose the type of puzzle I want if I want a thinking challenge then go hard if I want to think but not too much play medium and if I just want a casual think sit by the fire place crossword I have it. Great job Red Rock don’t change anything about this app I love it I would give this app a ten star rating if I could they only gave me five stars so I am sorry to say that is what you are stuck with lol...Keep up the great work.
Ok but not great
by DaniO2277 on 2019/12/16 11:39
The app is OK...functional and ads done in a way that don’t hinder puzzle play which is nice. Would be useful to be able to select which puzzle makers I want in the list (or not). You might say, ‘just don’t pick the ones you don’t like’ but, after some time you forget the names. Ratings of easy/hard don’t seem consistently applied. Lots of repetition in clues/solutions between puzzles.
Challenging play.
by Frankytheninja on 2019/12/15 10:55
The hard ones are challenging enough to make them worthwhile to play. Thank you!

Puzzle Errors
by Cooster815 on 2019/12/13 03:47
Good game overall. I’ve already found one puzzle with gross error that make it impossible to solve without revealing letters or the entire word. Just a little frustrating.
Fun Crosswords!
by Donnaofde on 2019/12/12 18:10
I pick the hard ones for a real challenge! Sometimes the answers seem too esoteric but you can keep the help feature active. Ads aren't too annoying so try it!

Words that dont exist
by wa3bvr on 2019/12/08 18:10
Mellor has words that do not exist like “ceil” or words that do not refer to their clues like “wily” or “etna”. So i no longer waste my time with Mellor puzzles. Other than Mellor the app is enjoyable.
Mismatched clues
by dothisuntilyouquit on 2019/12/06 02:21
Some of the clues don’t fit the answers. Some of the answers are simply wrong. Some of the answers make no sense at all. But overall, I enjoy playing it, basically because I love crosswords.

Excellent selections

Tried several different crossword puzzle sites and this one is by far the best. The content is varied, which means the puzzles cover several different subjects - and you have the flexibility of determining which level of difficulty you wish to take on.

There are a lot of good features to this game. It’s easy to use, challenging, and fun. What more can you ask for? I was surprised and pleased by the vast number of puzzles that come packaged with the game. Great job!
Hints
by LenGrell on 2019/11/29 15:19
I am really enjoying this app. One thing that I have a love/hat relationship with is the incorrect letter notification. It’s very helpful, love it. It makes the puzzle less challenging, hate it...slightly dislike it...lol. Maybe it could be made an option?

A few uneducated writers

by Petey Urie on 2019/11/19 04:01
this is a prime example of a game that isn't created specifically for money. it isn't overrun by ads, in-app purchases, and other gimmicks to take your money. the app is genuinely just sharing the love of crossworld puzzles with the nerds of the world, and i'm so down with that. of course, there are a few ads here and there, and there's the option to remove them, but i have absolutely no complaints about it. this is a quality app.

I love this app because it allows me to play as many puzzles as I wish without having to buy coins or tokens or, worse, watch lame ads. The intellectual clues are challenging, but not impossible. As one who enjoys using my knowledge and reasoning to solve individual games, this is the best I’ve found.

by DD nomad on 2019/11/11 05:04
Love this app. Probably the most used (or at least top 3) on my phone. The presentation of the app clean and easy to navigate. I love the variety of crossword creators offered - I never get tired of doing only one person’s puzzles. I also like that I could pay a tiny fee to never have ads. Of course I want to support those who made this app and definitely do not want ads popping up every night but I’m grateful not to have to subscribe for the package - I wouldn’t use the app if a monthly charge was asked. Thank you to the creators of the app! P.S. Oh and can you bring on more diamond puzzles? Those were fun to try but I haven’t seen any since. Thanks :)

Dozens and dozens of free puzzles from many different puzzle gurus ranging easy to hard....and if you run out of those you can get more. Ads are not too intrusive and for a reasonable one-time fee you can get rid of them. There are also bundles of puzzles to purchase from your favorite puzzle makers. Game controls are plenty and easy to use. If you like crossword puzzles, you’ll LOVE this free app!

Clue’s are reaching
by JamaicanFish68 on 2019/10/24 17:43
Most of the clues that each crossword has are puns, or small jokes that are not the first definition of the word. It’s as if every clue is the “alternative clue” that you get when you don’t understand the first clue. The correlation between the word and the clue are a stretch and it just disappoints me everytime i find out what the actually word was.

Its rare that I come across a product that leaves me with no qualms, but here is such an app. The interface is clean, the method of entering in letters is easy and simple, the ads don’t impede in the gameplay (which makes me not mind sitting through them), and the answer look-up is a great feature. Highly recommend!

This app runs well and the crosswords can be addictive because of how fun they are. There are ranges of difficulty, so people of all crossword-prowess levels can play. All in all, I would strongly recommend this app if you are someone who is into challenging your brain and potentially expanding your trivia knowledge ;) P.S. don’t use the hints; it’s more fun that way.
Not terrible, but could be better
by DrBarr on 2019/10/12 14:20
The only reason for the low review is because the easy levels aren’t “easy” at all. Several of the answers had to be looked up because they relied on memorization, not knowledge. I’m disappointed that a-lot clues had to be researched to be answered i.e.“Moe Howard’s brother and fellow Stooge” Vol.2 Puzzle 7, I’m stuck with 3 words connected whose clues are all “(abbr.)” so I’m left essentially having to enter every letter of the alphabet for each character.
Made my iPad go crazy

Crossword
by Flyinjeep on 2018/07/06 03:37
Like the crossword puzzles. I even ended up buying the commercial free version. There weren’t that many commercials but I just don’t like to see them. If there’s anything else I’m wanting I’ll look for it on my own. The commercial free wasn’t that costly anyway. I have one big complaint. You can be doing a puzzle. Not finish it, close your phone for something then go right back and your puzzle is gone. Then you have to start a new one. Plus had a lot of easy ones left that are nice when you don’t have a lot of time. All of a sudden on top of losing the puzzle you were doing almost all the easy ones are gone also. That’s two major complaints that I need to see fixed. I’m really hoping to see this fixed on my phone or I’ve been ripped off like a lot of the apps do. I must say also now that I’ve had the app for a little while I’ve had a major problem. I’ve had some times when I’ve put the right letter in and it says it’s wrong. Try and try to figure out what it could possibly be. Finally get enough of the puzzle done that I’ve just had it fill its self in. It has that feature. Or I’ve put my objection square on that square and ask for a letter. It has put in the letter I’ve tried to get it to accept numerous time. Now that’s a major screw up. You beat your brains out trying to come up with a couple of words that have the meaning with a slight different spelling for nothing.
Great Xword App
by EggSaladSandvich on 2017/04/10 15:20
This is by far one of the best crossword apps on the store. I waited through 2 updates to write a review as I wanted to see how the company fixed issues through each update. For instance, in one update sponsor ads in the free edition would sometimes cause a black screen to appear and make it seem as though your app had crashed, when in reality the home button just needed to be tapped and the app reopened. You don't have to go through a full re-load sequence like you would if it had gone through a full crash or if the app had been closed fully. Once re-opened you just open right back to the puzzle. So far, the latest update has resolved this sponsor ad/black screen issue. I am also quite fond of the idea of telling the player the grid size, puzzle ease, and author up front. There are some authors, for instance, that I am inclined to not even open their puzzles while others I gobble up every chance I get. The maker of this app puts out as many free puzzles as they do paid! The paid puzzles are rich and totally deserving of the price of coffee (some less than the cost of coffee!) Often the paid puzzle packs come with more puzzles per pack than freebies. As I mentioned this is one of the best crossword puzzle apps I've played - and I have played almost all of them. I like this one so much that I wrote this review-something I don't normally do.
Amazing app, supports the wrong Oklahoma football team
by Mrhighsky40 on 2017/08/25 15:12
This was my favorite crossword app until I opened a new crossword and one of the clues was Oklahoma Athlete, as an Oklahoma State University Student I only support the cowboys. But the answer was S****r, I had to disgustingly type out those dreaded letters in order to complete that crossword. I still shudder at the thought of possibly typing that word again. I'm not sure I can ever use this app again. You may feel this is childish or immature, but that only means you clearly have never felt love. I only continue to play in hopes that I can type the letters Cowboy in response to a question relating to Oklahoma State. One day I will see this and when that day comes I will give this app 5 stars, until then they remain sub par. While the apps features are amazing and simple to use, it's options to players seeming nearly endless and the app is amazingly easy to put down and pick up whenever you like; meaning this app deserves 6 stars, I am unable to do that due to the pain I currently feel from being betrayed. I hope you eventually see the error of your ways, but until then I am unable to respect you.
Red Rock
by Yakuzadragon on 2019/12/16 14:11
I love this crossword app and I can do crosswords for hours. I love the fact that you don’t need to earn or purchase coins for the hints. I like the fact that your crosswords are not too hard nor are they too easy. I am playing on the easy section but I am sure I am in for more of a challenge when I switch to medium and hard puzzles. This app allows me to choose the type of puzzle I want if I want a thinking challenge then go hard if I want to think but not too much play medium and if I just want a casual think sit by the fire place crossword I have it. Great job Red Rock don’t change anything about this app I love it I would give this app a ten star rating if I could they only gave me five stars so I am sorry to say that is what you are stuck with lol...Keep up the great work.
p. pasco if you see this i want more
by ?????? ? ? ??? ? ? ? on 2020/01/07 02:23
my biggest qualm is that lot of words are super repetitive within a particular creator, especially short ones (like “era” or “ccc” or “old” over and over). no one specifically, but generally across the options. so for example within one “pack” or whatnot i’ll have the same word multiple times and even multiple times within the same puzzle. i stopped doing the “easy” ones and that helped the repetitiveness. hints/solves you can use from the one across website are hardly ever right/helpful/even remotely possible with what’s “locked in” from being correct. the only puzzles i like are by p. pasco, so she or he should do some more. i finished the pack and now im bored again. i’m still going to play it because i don’t have a better option and in the grand scheme of things it’s really not that bad. overall i recommend. edit: i also like the ones by Gentry. need more Gentry and Pasco talent on this app asap!!! edit: i think i’m biased towards pasco because the content is young and fresh and interesting and incorporates some spanish. it’s things that are actually relevant to me. so maybe you need more young authors? idk, good luck!
Enjoyable but not the most user friendly
by WALKERBAITo3 on 2018/05/28 10:20
I’ve played about 20 puzzles now and I like it. Sometimes, actually a lot of times there’s repeating words in different puzzles, but that’s not a huge concern. And maybe it’s just on the easy setting so far. My advice or recommendations for this is the keyboard. I really wish they would use the device keyboard instead of their own because it is just slightly different than the normal one to the point where I struggle to type lol. Also I think the organization of the puzzles should be a little better. Maybe do sub settings where you can specifically choose easy medium or hard instead of all at once. Overall I really like this app, I think it’s a much better free alternative to the big name one, fun puzzles that are challenging yet doable. I like the variety of writers, and I like that we see who they are because I don’t understand one particular writer’s work. (Not that it’s a bad thing, it just makes it frustrating for me). The one thing I want to see is keyboard adjustment.
Great App some errors
by Elvisdragon on 2018/07/09 17:27
The app is fantastic. Great puzzles frim a variety of authors. It would be helpful if all of the authors had a website or the app developers had an error submission page that could be forwarded on to the authors. I understand that this could be problematic as many users might mistake a puzzle theme for an error, but i have found a few puzzle errors (not many). Most recently in Mason Fleming’s puzzle “Songs IV” (Very Hard) 15 across is hinted as “Eagles hit” with the answer as “Hotel CaliRornia” which should obviously be “Hotel California”. There doesn’t appear to be a running theme either such as “R for F” or something that would require swapping “F”s with “R”s as this was the only misspelling in this entire puzzle. Extensive internet searches found no trace of this puzzle’s author on the web for explanation.
Great game
by Thorzdad on 2019/04/03 02:02
Wonderful crossword app. Great range of writers and difficulties. The ads are sensibly done and never get in the way of gameplay. If you’re a crossword player, you definitely should have this on your device. I’ve had an issue with the game ever since updating my iPad to iOS 12, though. Pretty regularly, the game will start lagging behind input. I type a letter and there’s a severe delay before the letter appears on screen. Similarly, when I get a word right, the highlight effect starts late and the animation is in slow motion. The only way I’ve found to fix this is to restart the iPad. No other app acts this way, so I have to believe there’s some issue between the game and iOS 12. It never did this in iOS 11. Regardless, I still highly recommend this game.
Great app but has a few issues
by Dan Saberian on 2019/06/17 20:51
Right off the bat, this app is pretty awesome. It’s the best crossword app that I’ve ever used. On the iPhone it’s awesome. However on the iPad I keep hitting accidentally the button to go to settings every time I hold the device to play the game. That is somewhat annoying. One improvement that I could see would be able to play the app using side view maybe. Or maybe making the app more button friendly with an iPad so instead of having the buttons all at the bottom, it would be best to put them on the middle side to where they are out of the way of what you’re holding but at the same time or easy enough to get ahold of. Most people that want to play the game do not want to go into settings in the middle of a roll. It is quite annoying. Otherwise it’s an awesome app.
Not possible to turn off “show errors?”
by Flying House on 2018/04/11 21:11
I loved this app, but after the last update I noticed the option I always used to turn off “show errors” is now gone? Or has it just moved somewhere else? A lot of the fun for me in crosswords is figuring out which of several possible answers works with the other clues around it, and by showing errors in big red blocks the mystery and problem-solving is taken out of it. It’s a useful tool on a hard puzzle if I’m stuck, but I hate having it active constantly. I would love to get the feature to turn it off back! Edit: Thank you for the response! Glad to see the option has only moved, and not gone away! Love this app :)
Landscape Orientation!!!!!
by mmakkaylla on 2018/04/02 18:07
I really like this game, there are tons and tons of really good puzzles, and they’re not all ridiculously easy like in a lot of crossword apps. HOWEVER, I wish you could rotate your device and play it in landscape orientation. I have the game for iPad and my iPad has a horizontal stand, it really makes no sense to design this only for portrait orientation! PLEASE just let me rotate the game. Also, there are a lot of ads, and the more you play the game, the more frequently the ads start to appear. I don’t mind that you see one when you open a puzzle or close it, but like multiple times, in the middle of the puzzle, as soon as you fill in a clue, BAM. 30 second unskippable ad. I’d pay to get rid of them if it was $0.99, but $4.99 is just WAY too much. Either show fewer ads, or make it cheaper to get rid of them please!
Great way to pass time
by Kaveman2010 on 2017/10/07 17:16
This is the best crossword app I've found in the App Store, so far. I don't care for a couple of the puzzle authors (bad clues and abbreviated answers galore), but there are more than enough puzzles to keep my brain from turning to jello. My only real complaint is the reveal button placement. If there's anything I can't stand while working on puzzles it's being given the answers. On a few occasions, I have accidentally tapped the reveal button when using my thumb to go back and forth between the clue box or a letter box in the puzzle and the top row of the keyboard. It would be nice if there was an option to remove those buttons completely or move them to the top of the screen.
I give this five stars
by StarTrekky on 2018/02/13 15:44
Best crossword app ever! I’ve even bought several crosswords after I finished all my favorite puzzles. M.Mellor easy and Medium are my favorite. I had more than half of all the puzzles finished, paid for a 2.99 puzzle and the whole thing crashed and I couldn't open my game at all so I had to delete the app re download it and now my progress is all gone and all, the ones i paid for are gone too :( only problem, Ive had though and still worth it to me lol. Is there anyway i can get the puzzles back I've paid for? I think i got 3 easy Mellor games and this last time it was a new Media easy game? If not no big deal, i just wont pay for anymore new ones.
Too addicting
by JT f123 on 2019/12/17 05:03
I’m on this app every day! It’s such a wonderful way to stimulate my brain. I do crosswords when I eat, during commutes, and before I go to bed. I ask friends and family if they can solve some of the harder questions (I never google). I even send some of my friends text messages of the board! It’s too addicting to get through a whole puzzle and even fun to see how long you’ve spent on it (sometimes it adds up to hours!) I do have one suggestion. It gets pretty annoying to have to press the delete button through an entire correct word that is “locked” in order to get to a word you haven’t found yet/an empty box. I hope you can add a future feature (possibly an on-off setting so users can have a preference) that allows the delete button to skip locked letters in rows and columns. It would make it so much easier to navigate the whole puzzle. In addition, since I play this in bed, it would be really nice to have an inverted color scheme (white letters black background) so that it’s less hard on the eyes. Thanks for the daily entertainment!
5 Thumbs Up!
by TheJackCarr on 2019/06/01 11:00
Well 2 thumbs up, 5 Stars for sure though! Was looking for a crossword app that could even come close to the satisfaction from paper and pencil (or pen if you’re a daredevil lol) and I did not think I could enjoy crosswords on a digital medium until I came across this beauty. If you enjoy a good selection of crosswords and varying difficulties by some very talented creators you would be missing out if you didn’t give this a try! The near-perfect rating this app has received from its reviewers is not click bait. This is one of very few game apps that lives up to the ratings. I’m actually upset that I got lost in writing this long review when I could have been playing!
Good crossword game
by The real dennbert on 2019/03/16 00:38
I've tried a few crossword apps and this one is my favorite. The controls are intuitive, the number one thing I look for in a crossword game. I love that the games are by different authors so that you get varied "flavors" of games. I don't play this a lot but there's enough puzzles to keep me occupied for years and years! There are some ads, yes, but so far I've found that they only appear when you are in the menu system, and I've never had ads interrupt when solving. Nice! I understand that the devs need to do some ads to make money, so I love how they do it while you are not involved in a puzzle! Nice! I do recommended this very well done app for crossword fans!
It’s ok & mostly fun
by bcstones on 2018/07/19 13:49
Probably the biggest complaint is the lack of order in the presentation of the crosswords. It would help to either have all rankings grouped together (easy, medium, hard, very hard etc.) or to group the authors alphabetically. Right now, it’s all a mishmash & makes no sense... Some are quite challenging...others not so. Some of the “difficult” (even the ‘easy’ or ‘medium’) ones aren’t because they’re challenging but because the authors make up words that don’t exist or because of deliberate miscues... I’ll continue doing the crosswords & hope you’ll at least put the crosswords or their authors in some kind of order. Till then the best I can rate is 3 stars
My first crossword app
by Mlh49 on 2017/05/30 23:53
Since this is my first crossword app, I have nothing to compare it to. But I do like it a lot. If there are words I just can't seem to get, I'll set it aside for a little while and when I come back I'll get a few more. I've learned some new words, and some different ways to look at other words. One of the funniest was "shoes worn with a robe." I've been in church choir for many years and always wear my regular shoes with my choir robe, and didn't know what it was asking. It was only after completing more of the puzzle around that answer that it became clear it was "slippers." Guess I've been in choir too long! Thoroughly enjoy this app!
Best Crossword App
by quant on 2018/06/20 15:09
I do crosswords daily and have several apps across multiple platforms. This is hands down the best crossword app I have seen. Maneuvering and word entry is simple and straightforward. The multiple help/hint levels are easily adjustable and will be useful for those who wish to train up for higher levels of difficulty. The puzzles provided are well done and cover multiple levels of difficulty. The free version requires one to view an add after every puzzle, but the price for a non-ad upgrade is reasonable. It works on all iOS platforms and even on the small screen of an iPhone X is easy to read and use.
Frequent crashes upon opening
by thomlv94 on 2019/02/25 23:57
Overall good app. However, I’ve recently noticed that the app often crashes immediately when I open it (as in: I tap the app icon on my home screen to open it, the splash screen comes up for about half a second, and then the app immediately crashes and I’m sent back to my home screen). When this happens, nothing I do seems to help (tried force quitting the app and force quitting all other apps on my phone), but the problem is inconsistent. Once I was playing in airplane mode, and when the plane I was on landed, I turned off airplane mode (without exiting the app), and the app immediately crashed. Subsequent attempts to open the app also resulted in immediate crashes. Not sure if airplane mode is actually related to this bug. Device info: iPhone 6S, iOS 12.1.4
Great for Rookies
by LegendzZ on 2017/10/24 05:44
I hate puzzles but I love this app. It won’t let you lose or waste time because it has settings allowing you to know which letters and words are correct as you go along. It also prevents you from erasing correct letters in surrounding words. There is also a timed help function that allows you to reveal a letter or even a word when stuck. You can focus on learning without wondering if you took a wrong turn. The app won’t let you! So no wasted time. The perfect crossword app for people who don’t like doing crosswords, but like solving them!
Keeps going to black screen
by Gggggreenivated on 2018/03/25 03:37
Six times now I’ve had to reinstall when it gets stuck in a black screen and won’t get out. So I lose all the games I played and have to repeat. Stinks! Once, I thought it was a quirk of my phone. Twice it’s the sign of a bad app. Three times, well you get the picture. Don’t press the home button when you look at preferences. It sends you to a black hole. Lame! You’re stuck and end up losing all your data and have to replay games when you reinstall. A fourth and fifth and sixth time it wasn’t even the home button, just the end of a game or middle of a game. I emailed the developer and got an email back that was nice but did not reference the fact that it’s product goes to a black screen you can’t get out of and requires app removal and reinstall action to play again. No help at all. This app stinks!
Repetition, spelling errors, and lack of creativity
by wlbrndl on 2018/09/06 23:37
Don’t get me wrong, i enjoy using this application and it’s great for passing time. However, repeating hints/answers are very frequently found throughout the entirety of all puzzle sets, regardless of author. (e.g coastal raptor- Erne, formerly Tokyo- Edo, OJ trail judge- Ito, European language- Urdu, etc, the list goes on and on.) How is it that newspaper crossword authors can churn out new and totally original crosswords every single day of the week, and in increasing difficulty, without any repeats, yet the authors of this app can’t seem to make original crossword puzzles without the extreme time constraints as the former? Also, there’s no apparent way for users to report the numerous spelling errors encountered while using the app which was initially what compelled me to write this review. Please consider hiring different individuals to create your crosswords and please stop using hints and answers that have been used well over a dozen times in previous crosswords, particularly those in the same set. There’s no sense of creativity or professionalism in using your app considering you all fill writer’s-block gaps with overused hints, taking the easy, cheap way out.
Good for a free app
by foot2theballs on 2019/02/04 05:33
There’s a massive selection of puzzles ranging from very easy to very hard, all for free, which is great-but typically when you go for that kind of quantity, quality suffers. For example: 1: there’s a distinct feeling that the writers tried way too hard to make a lot of the clues clever, ending up with some pretty big stretches 2: there are very slightly reworded, or just plain copied and pasted clues and solutions from puzzle to puzzle 3: some of the solutions. Some of them aren’t even a thing. I just finished a puzzle in which one of the clues was something like ‘storage spaces in a designated dancing area (2 wds),’ and the solution was ‘ballroom closets.’ Come on guys. 4: there’s not really an increase in the difficulty of the clues from medium to hard to very hard-the only real differences I saw in those levels of difficulty were how far you had to stretch to make the clues work Overall execution of the app is great-simple, streamlined, there’s visual and audible feedback when you get a word right, etc. But I’ll be looking for another crossword app for sure.
Best Crossword I have found
by Cinco DeNio on 2019/04/22 02:04
I love playing this crossword game. It is very easy to hide showing errors but reveal things when I want. I only have two suggestions: 1) Make the back/erase button skip settled letters. Since going forward does that it would help if backwards did also. 2) It would be nice to see an occasional pack that had different difficulty levels in it. It gets a little boring to play 10 puzzles in a row. I agree with other comments that the same or similar clues/words get used often. When you do 10 puzzles from the same author the challenge is lessened Otherwise, great work!
best crossword app on this store
by Yecatalia on 2017/07/04 13:45
I've been searching for the best crossword app on the iTunes store, and I had almost given up when I found this one. So many free puzzles, and they're all fairly difficult (none of that really easy crap that a lot of other crossword apps have). You can choose the difficulty, choose whether or not to show errors, etc. And for a free app that offers so much content, the ads are not terribly invasive. This is a great choice for a crossword app! I highly recommend.
Latest update crashes, please fix!
by Ncraximus on 2018/04/05 12:56
Latest update now crashes, can’t use the app. Please fix! This would be 5 star app if it works! The app crashes when I try to open previously saved puzzles from before the major update. New puzzles that I hadn’t started work fine. For example, M Meller volume 1 easy (13X13) puzzle pack I had completed 11 puzzles and was halfway from completing puzzle 12 before the update and now when I try opening that puzzle the app crashes. But when I try a completely new puzzle pack that I never started before the update I am able to open those. Thanks for any help you can provide!
Very challenging and fun but..
by A Pleased Crossworder on 2019/06/25 20:49
I really loved this game. It came to me from my Mother who played the game and I would help her out. I decided then to get the game for myself. This game is easy to navigate as well as fun and challenging. However, I gave this game 4 stars because the game is a little, “gray”, as I put it. If this game had maybe even a colored background it would really shine the game up. I also think that if you complete puzzles, you can unlock things like new word colors, colorful backgrounds, something like that through maybe a shop system. (Best of luck and live long and prosper 🤙🏻)
Good games but very ad heavy.
by Xalta on 2018/03/18 08:21
The crosswords are great, but the app sure takes every opportunity to interrupt them with ads, which can break your train of thought easily. Finish a game? Congrats, here are two video ads. Want to start another game? Here are two more. Oh, you filled in a word correctly? Take another two! It’s a shame to see an app go for the ‘annoy and frustrate the user base into buying the full version for $5’ route instead of trying to entice users with an overall solid experience or more features. I understand ads are what generate revenue but the way they’re implemented here is just obnoxious.
Best one I've tried.
by Buff46 8 on 2017/07/14 11:28
The main thing I like is knowing immediately if I'm on the wrong track. Different authors give clues in different ways, of course, and I need to get my head going with those different types of clues. I do wish when the last letter is incorrect it wouldn't move on to the next word, but that's a minor inconvenience. I've only been using this app less than a month and like it better than any others I've tried. Keep up the good work. Thank you
Perfect for me
by MPC in NorCal on 2019/03/02 20:53
I’ve been doing puzzles with this app for years now. I like the four degrees of challenge available. There’s always new puzzles available. I haven’t had to buy any packs yet; but then again I’m not a marathon user. I haven’t paid to go ad free, any ads that pop up can simply be closed almost instantly. There’s no waits while a video or a pitch for another if the developers game plays. I’ve used plenty of other crossword puzzle apps; this one works the best for me.
Puzzle lover
by PW55 55 on 2017/11/18 23:29
Love this app, only one I have found that is addictive. This is my first crossword app and I find I could sit all day working the puzzles. Like the options the app gives such as highlighting the incorrect letter. I'm not in to racing the clock, just finishing. I'm of an older generation, trying to keep my brain working. Trying to get friends on to app and away from conventional way we have been using. Helps me to relax and forget stress. My cat is jealous, so he sits and paws iPad, naughty boy!
Great for beginner
by GenuineImitation on 2017/03/23 18:54
I'm just starting crosswords. These are easy for my brain to access (clue are not too esoteric) and I like that there are different types - larger and smaller. Great for a quick game break. Took off one star because it's still a little frustrating when you make a mistake and then try to re-enter: the letters fill in where the computer expects them to go, not where you are expecting them to fill. Not a big deal - just have to remember how the computer is responding. Overall, I think it's a great app.
Best Crossword App Available!
by Eldigar on 2017/07/20 02:41
I have been using this app. for over a month, playing on a regular basis. Only use the free version with ads however, the ads have a relatively reasonable duration and acceptable frequency compared to a lot of free app.s. Game play is user friendly, with very few glitches. Game or puzzle options are accurate and numerous enough to keep your interest. Overall, well designed and operating program, great app. especially considering it is totally free!
Seamless Interface to Smoothly Workout Your Brain!
by Tre Palacios on 2019/02/09 07:47
I really love this app for crosswords. The remove ad price is friendly and non committal of an ongoing monthly subscription. The clues are clever and engaging. If you're hung up, there's a one button look up that I find very educational. You've toyed with the clue for a while, from different angles; press the button learn the answer and move on with your new piece of knowledge! Guilt free play with the app...no wasted time!!! Bravo to the developers!!!
Love it!
by Natalie Smothers on 2018/06/22 23:25
Fantastic game. So many free puzzles to choose from in all different levels that I can’t imagine needing to buy new ones for a long time, but the add on packs are very reasonably priced! The ads were irritating but I had no problem paying $5 as much as I’ve been loving this app. It’s very intuitive and I love that it tells you when you have a letter wrong without giving you the whole answer. All in all I highly recommend this app.
Awesome!!!
by PattyBteacher on 2017/07/08 14:33
I just downloaded this app today and can't stop playing! I have another crossword app that requires coins to play older puzzles and you have to watch videos to earn them or pay for them, this isn't like that at all. Wonderful app that I will keep and enjoy everyday! Great mind workout and as someone else said, some very clever clues that make me laugh when I finally get them. It makes me really think and stretch my brain😀. Good job!
Redstone crosswords
by Jutzee on 2017/08/20 19:30
Really like this puzzle, PROBLEM, Apple notified me I paid for the no ads, Redstone said I was good to play, but I still get interruptions of ads. Would either like a refund or NO ads like I paid for. Probably fixed. Now, I must tell you, I have searched and signed up for more puzzles than I can count. Goodbye to them all as this is the best I have found. Go for this one, you won't be sorry. Just wish I could do it in a landscape my de on my iPad.
Incomplete words
by Botchybear on 2018/07/22 03:18
The puzzles leave off the last few letters of words. Example: instead of “chair“ it will be “cha”. Like an overstuffedcha. Instead of an overstuffedchair. It’s very confusing!!! Otherwise, there are good points about the puzzles, Including several options. But if they are going to leave off the ends of words they should make that an option that you could choose or not. It’s strange and frustrating.
Ads are obnoxious but game is top notch
by Penbrice on 2017/07/24 18:29
Really nice play experience. Intuitive interface, clever hints, and a lot of auxiliary stuff that enhances the game play (e.g. if you get stuck and want to press on, you can look up a website with options for the block you're stuck on by hitting one button). The ads were barely there for the first puzzle or so I did, and they're pretty constant now. If it was any other game and timing mattered, this would be a dealbreaker, but it isn't so it isn't. I enjoy this game a lot!
Wonderful
by jaclynweathers on 2018/03/16 06:27
I never write reviews but after looking forever for a simple crossword game, this is the best. Simple, easy to use layout, they don't make you earn coins or points or whatever just to play more puzzles, and there's just a ton of puzzles that range in difficulty. There's also very few adds; one when you start a new puzzle, one when you're half way through, and maybe one when you finish I believe.
OK. You win!!
by Jimneye on 2017/06/09 22:19
I tried this Crossword app and I loved it!! Except for the ads. 😖. At first I was taken aback by the $4.99 fee to get rid of the ads. Then I remembered that I have spent more than $50 looking for a good crossword app over the years. All of a sudden five bucks sounded pretty good!! My only quibble with the app is that when I select a row down or across, the cursor goes to the end of the row instead of the beginning. I understand your pricing now. My suggestion is to charge SOMETHING for the app. 49 cents?? That will make you distinct in the App Store. Advertise yourself as the crossword app for people who have to do at least one every day. The Xword fanatic. That will also separate you from the rest of the pack. OK you win. You ARE the best out there!! I paid my five bucks and am happy as a clam.
Good, but Online only?
by stepcoach on 2019/03/06 14:36
I gave this app only four stars because I can only play it online. A great deal of the reason I downloaded it was to fill time when I am in waiting rooms and lines. Most of these places do not have wifi available. So, the fact the game will not play - or even open - offline is a big problem. Please try to rewrite the program so that the great crossword puzzles which are downloaded onto my iPad can be played offline, any time, anywhere. Thank you.
Suggestion

I had this game in my Samsung Galaxy two 2 two years ago. At this time you were able to type as many letters as you wished because it did not jump to the next one. I would like that back. Apart from that I would like to be able to scroll through the letters without reaching so far upward. (A keyboard option for arrows maybe?) Outside of these this game is wonderful. The absolute best. 🤗
Fun and easy or hard your choice
by Dog lady 222 on 2017/07/12 22:22
I like that I can choose how much I want to think on these puzzles. For me most of the easy puzzles are 6-10 min the hard take a bit more time. But you can turn it off and come back with no change in the timer, it resumes when you come back. It takes a few games to get used to the way the keyboard works on the game board but it's really simple and fun.
5 letter word for repetitive
by Serene outlook on 2018/01/31 00:14
I’m beginning to think these are written by bots because I’ve noticed the same clues and the same words (“Jewish month”, “aquarium fish” and sari and emir come immediately to mind) in several puzzles. Do enough of them and the “hard” puzzles become only a matter of recalling clues from ones you’ve done recently. It’s not the NYT, so I’m not expecting Will Shortz level of puzzles, but still, it shouldn’t be that hard to open the dictionary and find a few words they haven’t used ten times already. I’ve gone from taking 20-25 minutes per puzzle to around 10.
Fun and relaxing!
by Mamaof2cuties on 2017/09/06 02:57
I enjoy this crossword puzzle. The logic of moving around the board is easy and it's easy to tell by the red letters if something you have put is wrong. The ads are a minor pop up and don't intrude on the enjoyment. I appreciate the words, I do easy, as I'm not quick with crossword puzzles but enjoy them. Maybe I'll graduate to the next level up. Lol. If you enjoy crossword puzzles this is a great puzzle and I appreciate that it's free.
Early opinion
by NotQuiteAntiquatedButClose on 2017/06/28 22:28
Just finished only two puzzles but this game is, so far, more enjoyable than other crosswords I've downloaded. A LOT of ads (more than other games) drop into this game while in progress and that is disappointing. However, this game does not seem to originate from the U.K. (Those games can be very frustrating as some words are completely unfamiliar) so I am, up to this point, happy with this game. Words are often challenging, my main goal in a crossword puzzle.
Great Crossword
by 5 golden rings on 2018/06/23 12:56
So far this is the best crossword app I’ve found. I (mostly) enjoy everything about it, however I do have one complaint that does become irritating for me during game play and that is not being able to turn the screen to landscape to fit my iPad, which is why I only gave four stars. Please make an iPad version so users can turn their screens to either portrait OR landscape and I’ll give this app 5 stars for sure! Thank you!

Seemed pretty good until political ads appeared. Now, no thanks. Not playing that game.
Deleted
by AudioPosting on 2020/01/18 19:25
I enjoyed the app and chose to accept ads in lieu of paying. If that was all you did, I would be fine. But your increasingly aggressive attempts to make me purchase the app are obnoxious and I have deleted the app (and contributed a one star rating). If you really don’t want to allow free ad supported access, don’t pretend otherwise. Very disappointing. Maybe you weren’t aware there are other crossword apps available.

by ret English teacher on 2020/01/18 15:47
I switched to your puzzles because they focus more on language than knowing TV stars and famous sports figures. It’s nice to learn words too. It is irritating to constantly be subject to ads every time I finish a puzzle. I notice you include slot machine music. I am not impressed nor drawn in. Otherwise I like this app.
Well designed
by DulcieC on 2020/01/18 14:22
I searched for a while for a word game that challenged me in a format without goofy characters and side games and one that didn’t bombard me with video ads for stupid games. This is it! I highly recommend this crossword game.
Ads
by kit1844 on 2020/01/17 18:19
This was a good app until I started getting inundated with political ads. Even in leisure, there is no escape from this nightmare.

I’ve never been big into crossword puzzles and then I found one I liked, but I don’t have money to constantly spend on games. This one is great, no money required and helpful hints when you’re stuck. I’m so happy to find something that doesn’t have tons of ads and is free. Thank you!

I got this app looking for crossword puzzles that would challenge me but not be too hard. That’s exactly what I got! These puzzles are perfect, and since they’re rated by difficulty, I’m never bored, and I’m never too frustrated. The settings let you Taylor the games to your every need. No complaints here - thank you for an awesome app!

I really love this app. I love that you can pick which level you want and that you can adjust a lot of settings. I would recommend it to anyone who likes crosswords.
p. pasco if you see this i want more
by ?????? ? ? ??? ? ? ? on 2020/01/07 02:23
my biggest qualm is that lot of words are super repetitive within a particular creator, especially short ones (like “era” or “ccc” or “old” over and over). no one specifically, but generally across the options. so for example within one “pack” or whatnot i’ll have the same word multiple times and even multiple times within the same puzzle. i stopped doing the “easy” ones and that helped the repetitiveness. hints/solves you can use from the one across website are hardly ever right/helpful/even remotely possible with what’s “locked in” from being correct. the only puzzles i like are by p. pasco, so she or he should do some more. i finished the pack and now im bored again. i’m still going to play it because i don’t have a better option and in the grand scheme of things it’s really not that bad. overall i recommend. edit: i also like the ones by Gentry. need more Gentry and Pasco talent on this app asap!!! edit: i think i’m biased towards pasco because the content is young and fresh and interesting and incorporates some spanish. it’s things that are actually relevant to me. so maybe you need more young authors? idk, good luck!
Love it!
by BJ and Shadow on 2020/01/06 16:03

Good app but...
by busyone5 on 2019/12/29 00:04
Some of the puzzles have made up words. I tried to give a little leeway, but they need to at least have a basis of a real word or words.
Kicked out mid game
by Jeffy in Dallas on 2019/12/28 00:19
Been playing for weeks and today the app crashes mid game and when i go back in, my game is gone and all the packs now have individual charges for them that are around $3.99 per pack and this is in addition to an ad free charge. Well it was fun while it lasted. Bye.
Love the app

by BitSlayer on 2019/12/22 20:14
Good app and seems to behave well. I really only have two complaints; 1) The puzzles seem to be repetitive for the words used, and 2) many of the clues and word spellings seem to UK. English oriented.

After using and loving this app for months, the only puzzles available have to be purchased even after watching all of the commercials. Sad to see that. I’ll be deleting the app.
Too addicting
by JT f123 on 2019/12/17 05:03
I’m on this app every day! It’s such a wonderful way to stimulate my brain. I do crosswords when I eat, during commutes, and before I go to bed. I ask friends and family if they can solve some of the harder questions (I never google). I even send some of my friends text messages of the board! It’s too addicting to get through a whole puzzle and even fun to see how long you’ve spent on it (sometimes it adds up to hours!) I do have one suggestion. It gets pretty annoying to have to press the delete button through an entire correct word that is “locked” in order to get to a word you haven’t found yet/an empty box. I hope you can add a future feature (possibly an on-off setting so users can have a preference) that allows the delete button to skip locked letters in rows and columns. It would make it so much easier to navigate the whole puzzle. In addition, since I play this in bed, it would be really nice to have an inverted color scheme (white letters black background) so that it’s less hard on the eyes. Thanks for the daily entertainment!
Red Rock
by Yakuzadragon on 2019/12/16 14:11
I love this crossword app and I can do crosswords for hours. I love the fact that you don’t need to earn or purchase coins for the hints. I like the fact that your crosswords are not too hard nor are they too easy. I am playing on the easy section but I am sure I am in for more of a challenge when I switch to medium and hard puzzles. This app allows me to choose the type of puzzle I want if I want a thinking challenge then go hard if I want to think but not too much play medium and if I just want a casual think sit by the fire place crossword I have it. Great job Red Rock don’t change anything about this app I love it I would give this app a ten star rating if I could they only gave me five stars so I am sorry to say that is what you are stuck with lol...Keep up the great work.
Ok but not great
by DaniO2277 on 2019/12/16 11:39
The app is OK...functional and ads done in a way that don’t hinder puzzle play which is nice. Would be useful to be able to select which puzzle makers I want in the list (or not). You might say, ‘just don’t pick the ones you don’t like’ but, after some time you forget the names. Ratings of easy/hard don’t seem consistently applied. Lots of repetition in clues/solutions between puzzles.
Challenging play.

Good game overall. I’ve already found one puzzle with gross error that make it impossible to solve without revealing letters or the entire word. Just a little frustrating.
Fun Crosswords!

Words that dont exist
by wa3bvr on 2019/12/08 18:10
Mellor has words that do not exist like “ceil” or words that do not refer to their clues like “wily” or “etna”. So i no longer waste my time with Mellor puzzles. Other than Mellor the app is enjoyable.
Mismatched clues
by dothisuntilyouquit on 2019/12/06 02:21
Some of the clues don’t fit the answers. Some of the answers are simply wrong. Some of the answers make no sense at all. But overall, I enjoy playing it, basically because I love crosswords.

this is a prime example of a game that isn't created specifically for money. it isn't overrun by ads, in-app purchases, and other gimmicks to take your money. the app is genuinely just sharing the love of crossworld puzzles with the nerds of the world, and i'm so down with that. of course, there are a few ads here and there, and there's the option to remove them, but i have absolutely no complaints about it. this is a quality app.

I love this app because it allows me to play as many puzzles as I wish without having to buy coins or tokens or, worse, watch lame ads. The intellectual clues are challenging, but not impossible. As one who enjoys using my knowledge and reasoning to solve individual games, this is the best I’ve found.

Love this app. Probably the most used (or at least top 3) on my phone. The presentation of the app clean and easy to navigate. I love the variety of crossword creators offered - I never get tired of doing only one person’s puzzles. I also like that I could pay a tiny fee to never have ads. Of course I want to support those who made this app and definitely do not want ads popping up every night but I’m grateful not to have to subscribe for the package - I wouldn’t use the app if a monthly charge was asked. Thank you to the creators of the app! P.S. Oh and can you bring on more diamond puzzles? Those were fun to try but I haven’t seen any since. Thanks :)

Clue’s are reaching
by JamaicanFish68 on 2019/10/24 17:43
Most of the clues that each crossword has are puns, or small jokes that are not the first definition of the word. It’s as if every clue is the “alternative clue” that you get when you don’t understand the first clue. The correlation between the word and the clue are a stretch and it just disappoints me everytime i find out what the actually word was.

Awesome way to stimulate the brain.
100% Satisfied
by Stormy Kara on 2019/10/17 16:26
Its rare that I come across a product that leaves me with no qualms, but here is such an app. The interface is clean, the method of entering in letters is easy and simple, the ads don’t impede in the gameplay (which makes me not mind sitting through them), and the answer look-up is a great feature. Highly recommend!
Screwy clues
by momof123456$&@" on 2019/10/15 01:17
Dumb clues that no one would ever guess. These are supposed to be easy. Waste of time.
Fun

Its a nice way to relax when you have a spare moment or two.
Truly Great.

This app runs well and the crosswords can be addictive because of how fun they are. There are ranges of difficulty, so people of all crossword-prowess levels can play. All in all, I would strongly recommend this app if you are someone who is into challenging your brain and potentially expanding your trivia knowledge ;) P.S. don’t use the hints; it’s more fun that way.
Not terrible, but could be better
by DrBarr on 2019/10/12 14:20
The only reason for the low review is because the easy levels aren’t “easy” at all. Several of the answers had to be looked up because they relied on memorization, not knowledge. I’m disappointed that a-lot clues had to be researched to be answered i.e.“Moe Howard’s brother and fellow Stooge” Vol.2 Puzzle 7, I’m stuck with 3 words connected whose clues are all “(abbr.)” so I’m left essentially having to enter every letter of the alphabet for each character.
Made my iPad go crazy
by dunkit2 on 2019/10/11 03:42
Loved these crosswords but I noticed the rest of my apps began to be off. Thought it was a quirk and then, it got worse. Nothing worked right until I deleted this app.

Your app won’t turn for an iPad. Kind of weird since most people have there iPads in cover with stand.
Great crossword app
by Nova Brew on 2019/10/08 02:58
There are so many crossword puzzles of so many different levels of difficulty, you can’t help but like it.
Crossword
by Flyinjeep on 2018/07/06 03:37
Like the crossword puzzles. I even ended up buying the commercial free version. There weren’t that many commercials but I just don’t like to see them. If there’s anything else I’m wanting I’ll look for it on my own. The commercial free wasn’t that costly anyway. I have one big complaint. You can be doing a puzzle. Not finish it, close your phone for something then go right back and your puzzle is gone. Then you have to start a new one. Plus had a lot of easy ones left that are nice when you don’t have a lot of time. All of a sudden on top of losing the puzzle you were doing almost all the easy ones are gone also. That’s two major complaints that I need to see fixed. I’m really hoping to see this fixed on my phone or I’ve been ripped off like a lot of the apps do. I must say also now that I’ve had the app for a little while I’ve had a major problem. I’ve had some times when I’ve put the right letter in and it says it’s wrong. Try and try to figure out what it could possibly be. Finally get enough of the puzzle done that I’ve just had it fill its self in. It has that feature. Or I’ve put my objection square on that square and ask for a letter. It has put in the letter I’ve tried to get it to accept numerous time. Now that’s a major screw up. You beat your brains out trying to come up with a couple of words that have the meaning with a slight different spelling for nothing.
Great Xword App
by EggSaladSandvich on 2017/04/10 15:20
This is by far one of the best crossword apps on the store. I waited through 2 updates to write a review as I wanted to see how the company fixed issues through each update. For instance, in one update sponsor ads in the free edition would sometimes cause a black screen to appear and make it seem as though your app had crashed, when in reality the home button just needed to be tapped and the app reopened. You don't have to go through a full re-load sequence like you would if it had gone through a full crash or if the app had been closed fully. Once re-opened you just open right back to the puzzle. So far, the latest update has resolved this sponsor ad/black screen issue. I am also quite fond of the idea of telling the player the grid size, puzzle ease, and author up front. There are some authors, for instance, that I am inclined to not even open their puzzles while others I gobble up every chance I get. The maker of this app puts out as many free puzzles as they do paid! The paid puzzles are rich and totally deserving of the price of coffee (some less than the cost of coffee!) Often the paid puzzle packs come with more puzzles per pack than freebies. As I mentioned this is one of the best crossword puzzle apps I've played - and I have played almost all of them. I like this one so much that I wrote this review-something I don't normally do.
Amazing app, supports the wrong Oklahoma football team
by Mrhighsky40 on 2017/08/25 15:12
This was my favorite crossword app until I opened a new crossword and one of the clues was Oklahoma Athlete, as an Oklahoma State University Student I only support the cowboys. But the answer was S****r, I had to disgustingly type out those dreaded letters in order to complete that crossword. I still shudder at the thought of possibly typing that word again. I'm not sure I can ever use this app again. You may feel this is childish or immature, but that only means you clearly have never felt love. I only continue to play in hopes that I can type the letters Cowboy in response to a question relating to Oklahoma State. One day I will see this and when that day comes I will give this app 5 stars, until then they remain sub par. While the apps features are amazing and simple to use, it's options to players seeming nearly endless and the app is amazingly easy to put down and pick up whenever you like; meaning this app deserves 6 stars, I am unable to do that due to the pain I currently feel from being betrayed. I hope you eventually see the error of your ways, but until then I am unable to respect you.
Red Rock
by Yakuzadragon on 2019/12/16 14:11
I love this crossword app and I can do crosswords for hours. I love the fact that you don’t need to earn or purchase coins for the hints. I like the fact that your crosswords are not too hard nor are they too easy. I am playing on the easy section but I am sure I am in for more of a challenge when I switch to medium and hard puzzles. This app allows me to choose the type of puzzle I want if I want a thinking challenge then go hard if I want to think but not too much play medium and if I just want a casual think sit by the fire place crossword I have it. Great job Red Rock don’t change anything about this app I love it I would give this app a ten star rating if I could they only gave me five stars so I am sorry to say that is what you are stuck with lol...Keep up the great work.
p. pasco if you see this i want more
by ?????? ? ? ??? ? ? ? on 2020/01/07 02:23
my biggest qualm is that lot of words are super repetitive within a particular creator, especially short ones (like “era” or “ccc” or “old” over and over). no one specifically, but generally across the options. so for example within one “pack” or whatnot i’ll have the same word multiple times and even multiple times within the same puzzle. i stopped doing the “easy” ones and that helped the repetitiveness. hints/solves you can use from the one across website are hardly ever right/helpful/even remotely possible with what’s “locked in” from being correct. the only puzzles i like are by p. pasco, so she or he should do some more. i finished the pack and now im bored again. i’m still going to play it because i don’t have a better option and in the grand scheme of things it’s really not that bad. overall i recommend. edit: i also like the ones by Gentry. need more Gentry and Pasco talent on this app asap!!! edit: i think i’m biased towards pasco because the content is young and fresh and interesting and incorporates some spanish. it’s things that are actually relevant to me. so maybe you need more young authors? idk, good luck!
Enjoyable but not the most user friendly
by WALKERBAITo3 on 2018/05/28 10:20
I’ve played about 20 puzzles now and I like it. Sometimes, actually a lot of times there’s repeating words in different puzzles, but that’s not a huge concern. And maybe it’s just on the easy setting so far. My advice or recommendations for this is the keyboard. I really wish they would use the device keyboard instead of their own because it is just slightly different than the normal one to the point where I struggle to type lol. Also I think the organization of the puzzles should be a little better. Maybe do sub settings where you can specifically choose easy medium or hard instead of all at once. Overall I really like this app, I think it’s a much better free alternative to the big name one, fun puzzles that are challenging yet doable. I like the variety of writers, and I like that we see who they are because I don’t understand one particular writer’s work. (Not that it’s a bad thing, it just makes it frustrating for me). The one thing I want to see is keyboard adjustment.
Great App some errors
by Elvisdragon on 2018/07/09 17:27
The app is fantastic. Great puzzles frim a variety of authors. It would be helpful if all of the authors had a website or the app developers had an error submission page that could be forwarded on to the authors. I understand that this could be problematic as many users might mistake a puzzle theme for an error, but i have found a few puzzle errors (not many). Most recently in Mason Fleming’s puzzle “Songs IV” (Very Hard) 15 across is hinted as “Eagles hit” with the answer as “Hotel CaliRornia” which should obviously be “Hotel California”. There doesn’t appear to be a running theme either such as “R for F” or something that would require swapping “F”s with “R”s as this was the only misspelling in this entire puzzle. Extensive internet searches found no trace of this puzzle’s author on the web for explanation.
Great game
by Thorzdad on 2019/04/03 02:02
Wonderful crossword app. Great range of writers and difficulties. The ads are sensibly done and never get in the way of gameplay. If you’re a crossword player, you definitely should have this on your device. I’ve had an issue with the game ever since updating my iPad to iOS 12, though. Pretty regularly, the game will start lagging behind input. I type a letter and there’s a severe delay before the letter appears on screen. Similarly, when I get a word right, the highlight effect starts late and the animation is in slow motion. The only way I’ve found to fix this is to restart the iPad. No other app acts this way, so I have to believe there’s some issue between the game and iOS 12. It never did this in iOS 11. Regardless, I still highly recommend this game.
Great app but has a few issues
by Dan Saberian on 2019/06/17 20:51
Right off the bat, this app is pretty awesome. It’s the best crossword app that I’ve ever used. On the iPhone it’s awesome. However on the iPad I keep hitting accidentally the button to go to settings every time I hold the device to play the game. That is somewhat annoying. One improvement that I could see would be able to play the app using side view maybe. Or maybe making the app more button friendly with an iPad so instead of having the buttons all at the bottom, it would be best to put them on the middle side to where they are out of the way of what you’re holding but at the same time or easy enough to get ahold of. Most people that want to play the game do not want to go into settings in the middle of a roll. It is quite annoying. Otherwise it’s an awesome app.
Not possible to turn off “show errors?”
by Flying House on 2018/04/11 21:11
I loved this app, but after the last update I noticed the option I always used to turn off “show errors” is now gone? Or has it just moved somewhere else? A lot of the fun for me in crosswords is figuring out which of several possible answers works with the other clues around it, and by showing errors in big red blocks the mystery and problem-solving is taken out of it. It’s a useful tool on a hard puzzle if I’m stuck, but I hate having it active constantly. I would love to get the feature to turn it off back! Edit: Thank you for the response! Glad to see the option has only moved, and not gone away! Love this app :)
Landscape Orientation!!!!!
by mmakkaylla on 2018/04/02 18:07
I really like this game, there are tons and tons of really good puzzles, and they’re not all ridiculously easy like in a lot of crossword apps. HOWEVER, I wish you could rotate your device and play it in landscape orientation. I have the game for iPad and my iPad has a horizontal stand, it really makes no sense to design this only for portrait orientation! PLEASE just let me rotate the game. Also, there are a lot of ads, and the more you play the game, the more frequently the ads start to appear. I don’t mind that you see one when you open a puzzle or close it, but like multiple times, in the middle of the puzzle, as soon as you fill in a clue, BAM. 30 second unskippable ad. I’d pay to get rid of them if it was $0.99, but $4.99 is just WAY too much. Either show fewer ads, or make it cheaper to get rid of them please!
Great way to pass time
by Kaveman2010 on 2017/10/07 17:16
This is the best crossword app I've found in the App Store, so far. I don't care for a couple of the puzzle authors (bad clues and abbreviated answers galore), but there are more than enough puzzles to keep my brain from turning to jello. My only real complaint is the reveal button placement. If there's anything I can't stand while working on puzzles it's being given the answers. On a few occasions, I have accidentally tapped the reveal button when using my thumb to go back and forth between the clue box or a letter box in the puzzle and the top row of the keyboard. It would be nice if there was an option to remove those buttons completely or move them to the top of the screen.
I give this five stars
by StarTrekky on 2018/02/13 15:44
Best crossword app ever! I’ve even bought several crosswords after I finished all my favorite puzzles. M.Mellor easy and Medium are my favorite. I had more than half of all the puzzles finished, paid for a 2.99 puzzle and the whole thing crashed and I couldn't open my game at all so I had to delete the app re download it and now my progress is all gone and all, the ones i paid for are gone too :( only problem, Ive had though and still worth it to me lol. Is there anyway i can get the puzzles back I've paid for? I think i got 3 easy Mellor games and this last time it was a new Media easy game? If not no big deal, i just wont pay for anymore new ones.
Too addicting
by JT f123 on 2019/12/17 05:03
I’m on this app every day! It’s such a wonderful way to stimulate my brain. I do crosswords when I eat, during commutes, and before I go to bed. I ask friends and family if they can solve some of the harder questions (I never google). I even send some of my friends text messages of the board! It’s too addicting to get through a whole puzzle and even fun to see how long you’ve spent on it (sometimes it adds up to hours!) I do have one suggestion. It gets pretty annoying to have to press the delete button through an entire correct word that is “locked” in order to get to a word you haven’t found yet/an empty box. I hope you can add a future feature (possibly an on-off setting so users can have a preference) that allows the delete button to skip locked letters in rows and columns. It would make it so much easier to navigate the whole puzzle. In addition, since I play this in bed, it would be really nice to have an inverted color scheme (white letters black background) so that it’s less hard on the eyes. Thanks for the daily entertainment!
5 Thumbs Up!
by TheJackCarr on 2019/06/01 11:00
Well 2 thumbs up, 5 Stars for sure though! Was looking for a crossword app that could even come close to the satisfaction from paper and pencil (or pen if you’re a daredevil lol) and I did not think I could enjoy crosswords on a digital medium until I came across this beauty. If you enjoy a good selection of crosswords and varying difficulties by some very talented creators you would be missing out if you didn’t give this a try! The near-perfect rating this app has received from its reviewers is not click bait. This is one of very few game apps that lives up to the ratings. I’m actually upset that I got lost in writing this long review when I could have been playing!
Good crossword game
by The real dennbert on 2019/03/16 00:38
I've tried a few crossword apps and this one is my favorite. The controls are intuitive, the number one thing I look for in a crossword game. I love that the games are by different authors so that you get varied "flavors" of games. I don't play this a lot but there's enough puzzles to keep me occupied for years and years! There are some ads, yes, but so far I've found that they only appear when you are in the menu system, and I've never had ads interrupt when solving. Nice! I understand that the devs need to do some ads to make money, so I love how they do it while you are not involved in a puzzle! Nice! I do recommended this very well done app for crossword fans!
It’s ok & mostly fun
by bcstones on 2018/07/19 13:49
Probably the biggest complaint is the lack of order in the presentation of the crosswords. It would help to either have all rankings grouped together (easy, medium, hard, very hard etc.) or to group the authors alphabetically. Right now, it’s all a mishmash & makes no sense... Some are quite challenging...others not so. Some of the “difficult” (even the ‘easy’ or ‘medium’) ones aren’t because they’re challenging but because the authors make up words that don’t exist or because of deliberate miscues... I’ll continue doing the crosswords & hope you’ll at least put the crosswords or their authors in some kind of order. Till then the best I can rate is 3 stars
My first crossword app
by Mlh49 on 2017/05/30 23:53
Since this is my first crossword app, I have nothing to compare it to. But I do like it a lot. If there are words I just can't seem to get, I'll set it aside for a little while and when I come back I'll get a few more. I've learned some new words, and some different ways to look at other words. One of the funniest was "shoes worn with a robe." I've been in church choir for many years and always wear my regular shoes with my choir robe, and didn't know what it was asking. It was only after completing more of the puzzle around that answer that it became clear it was "slippers." Guess I've been in choir too long! Thoroughly enjoy this app!
Best Crossword App
by quant on 2018/06/20 15:09
I do crosswords daily and have several apps across multiple platforms. This is hands down the best crossword app I have seen. Maneuvering and word entry is simple and straightforward. The multiple help/hint levels are easily adjustable and will be useful for those who wish to train up for higher levels of difficulty. The puzzles provided are well done and cover multiple levels of difficulty. The free version requires one to view an add after every puzzle, but the price for a non-ad upgrade is reasonable. It works on all iOS platforms and even on the small screen of an iPhone X is easy to read and use.
Frequent crashes upon opening
by thomlv94 on 2019/02/25 23:57
Overall good app. However, I’ve recently noticed that the app often crashes immediately when I open it (as in: I tap the app icon on my home screen to open it, the splash screen comes up for about half a second, and then the app immediately crashes and I’m sent back to my home screen). When this happens, nothing I do seems to help (tried force quitting the app and force quitting all other apps on my phone), but the problem is inconsistent. Once I was playing in airplane mode, and when the plane I was on landed, I turned off airplane mode (without exiting the app), and the app immediately crashed. Subsequent attempts to open the app also resulted in immediate crashes. Not sure if airplane mode is actually related to this bug. Device info: iPhone 6S, iOS 12.1.4
Great for Rookies
by LegendzZ on 2017/10/24 05:44
I hate puzzles but I love this app. It won’t let you lose or waste time because it has settings allowing you to know which letters and words are correct as you go along. It also prevents you from erasing correct letters in surrounding words. There is also a timed help function that allows you to reveal a letter or even a word when stuck. You can focus on learning without wondering if you took a wrong turn. The app won’t let you! So no wasted time. The perfect crossword app for people who don’t like doing crosswords, but like solving them!
Keeps going to black screen
by Gggggreenivated on 2018/03/25 03:37
Six times now I’ve had to reinstall when it gets stuck in a black screen and won’t get out. So I lose all the games I played and have to repeat. Stinks! Once, I thought it was a quirk of my phone. Twice it’s the sign of a bad app. Three times, well you get the picture. Don’t press the home button when you look at preferences. It sends you to a black hole. Lame! You’re stuck and end up losing all your data and have to replay games when you reinstall. A fourth and fifth and sixth time it wasn’t even the home button, just the end of a game or middle of a game. I emailed the developer and got an email back that was nice but did not reference the fact that it’s product goes to a black screen you can’t get out of and requires app removal and reinstall action to play again. No help at all. This app stinks!
Repetition, spelling errors, and lack of creativity
by wlbrndl on 2018/09/06 23:37
Don’t get me wrong, i enjoy using this application and it’s great for passing time. However, repeating hints/answers are very frequently found throughout the entirety of all puzzle sets, regardless of author. (e.g coastal raptor- Erne, formerly Tokyo- Edo, OJ trail judge- Ito, European language- Urdu, etc, the list goes on and on.) How is it that newspaper crossword authors can churn out new and totally original crosswords every single day of the week, and in increasing difficulty, without any repeats, yet the authors of this app can’t seem to make original crossword puzzles without the extreme time constraints as the former? Also, there’s no apparent way for users to report the numerous spelling errors encountered while using the app which was initially what compelled me to write this review. Please consider hiring different individuals to create your crosswords and please stop using hints and answers that have been used well over a dozen times in previous crosswords, particularly those in the same set. There’s no sense of creativity or professionalism in using your app considering you all fill writer’s-block gaps with overused hints, taking the easy, cheap way out.
Good for a free app
by foot2theballs on 2019/02/04 05:33
There’s a massive selection of puzzles ranging from very easy to very hard, all for free, which is great-but typically when you go for that kind of quantity, quality suffers. For example: 1: there’s a distinct feeling that the writers tried way too hard to make a lot of the clues clever, ending up with some pretty big stretches 2: there are very slightly reworded, or just plain copied and pasted clues and solutions from puzzle to puzzle 3: some of the solutions. Some of them aren’t even a thing. I just finished a puzzle in which one of the clues was something like ‘storage spaces in a designated dancing area (2 wds),’ and the solution was ‘ballroom closets.’ Come on guys. 4: there’s not really an increase in the difficulty of the clues from medium to hard to very hard-the only real differences I saw in those levels of difficulty were how far you had to stretch to make the clues work Overall execution of the app is great-simple, streamlined, there’s visual and audible feedback when you get a word right, etc. But I’ll be looking for another crossword app for sure.
Best Crossword I have found
by Cinco DeNio on 2019/04/22 02:04
I love playing this crossword game. It is very easy to hide showing errors but reveal things when I want. I only have two suggestions: 1) Make the back/erase button skip settled letters. Since going forward does that it would help if backwards did also. 2) It would be nice to see an occasional pack that had different difficulty levels in it. It gets a little boring to play 10 puzzles in a row. I agree with other comments that the same or similar clues/words get used often. When you do 10 puzzles from the same author the challenge is lessened Otherwise, great work!
best crossword app on this store
by Yecatalia on 2017/07/04 13:45
I've been searching for the best crossword app on the iTunes store, and I had almost given up when I found this one. So many free puzzles, and they're all fairly difficult (none of that really easy crap that a lot of other crossword apps have). You can choose the difficulty, choose whether or not to show errors, etc. And for a free app that offers so much content, the ads are not terribly invasive. This is a great choice for a crossword app! I highly recommend.
Latest update crashes, please fix!
by Ncraximus on 2018/04/05 12:56
Latest update now crashes, can’t use the app. Please fix! This would be 5 star app if it works! The app crashes when I try to open previously saved puzzles from before the major update. New puzzles that I hadn’t started work fine. For example, M Meller volume 1 easy (13X13) puzzle pack I had completed 11 puzzles and was halfway from completing puzzle 12 before the update and now when I try opening that puzzle the app crashes. But when I try a completely new puzzle pack that I never started before the update I am able to open those. Thanks for any help you can provide!
Very challenging and fun but..
by A Pleased Crossworder on 2019/06/25 20:49
I really loved this game. It came to me from my Mother who played the game and I would help her out. I decided then to get the game for myself. This game is easy to navigate as well as fun and challenging. However, I gave this game 4 stars because the game is a little, “gray”, as I put it. If this game had maybe even a colored background it would really shine the game up. I also think that if you complete puzzles, you can unlock things like new word colors, colorful backgrounds, something like that through maybe a shop system. (Best of luck and live long and prosper 🤙🏻)
Good games but very ad heavy.
by Xalta on 2018/03/18 08:21
The crosswords are great, but the app sure takes every opportunity to interrupt them with ads, which can break your train of thought easily. Finish a game? Congrats, here are two video ads. Want to start another game? Here are two more. Oh, you filled in a word correctly? Take another two! It’s a shame to see an app go for the ‘annoy and frustrate the user base into buying the full version for $5’ route instead of trying to entice users with an overall solid experience or more features. I understand ads are what generate revenue but the way they’re implemented here is just obnoxious.
Best one I've tried.
by Buff46 8 on 2017/07/14 11:28
The main thing I like is knowing immediately if I'm on the wrong track. Different authors give clues in different ways, of course, and I need to get my head going with those different types of clues. I do wish when the last letter is incorrect it wouldn't move on to the next word, but that's a minor inconvenience. I've only been using this app less than a month and like it better than any others I've tried. Keep up the good work. Thank you
Perfect for me
by MPC in NorCal on 2019/03/02 20:53
I’ve been doing puzzles with this app for years now. I like the four degrees of challenge available. There’s always new puzzles available. I haven’t had to buy any packs yet; but then again I’m not a marathon user. I haven’t paid to go ad free, any ads that pop up can simply be closed almost instantly. There’s no waits while a video or a pitch for another if the developers game plays. I’ve used plenty of other crossword puzzle apps; this one works the best for me.
Puzzle lover
by PW55 55 on 2017/11/18 23:29
Love this app, only one I have found that is addictive. This is my first crossword app and I find I could sit all day working the puzzles. Like the options the app gives such as highlighting the incorrect letter. I'm not in to racing the clock, just finishing. I'm of an older generation, trying to keep my brain working. Trying to get friends on to app and away from conventional way we have been using. Helps me to relax and forget stress. My cat is jealous, so he sits and paws iPad, naughty boy!
Great for beginner
by GenuineImitation on 2017/03/23 18:54
I'm just starting crosswords. These are easy for my brain to access (clue are not too esoteric) and I like that there are different types - larger and smaller. Great for a quick game break. Took off one star because it's still a little frustrating when you make a mistake and then try to re-enter: the letters fill in where the computer expects them to go, not where you are expecting them to fill. Not a big deal - just have to remember how the computer is responding. Overall, I think it's a great app.
Best Crossword App Available!
by Eldigar on 2017/07/20 02:41
I have been using this app. for over a month, playing on a regular basis. Only use the free version with ads however, the ads have a relatively reasonable duration and acceptable frequency compared to a lot of free app.s. Game play is user friendly, with very few glitches. Game or puzzle options are accurate and numerous enough to keep your interest. Overall, well designed and operating program, great app. especially considering it is totally free!
Seamless Interface to Smoothly Workout Your Brain!
by Tre Palacios on 2019/02/09 07:47
I really love this app for crosswords. The remove ad price is friendly and non committal of an ongoing monthly subscription. The clues are clever and engaging. If you're hung up, there's a one button look up that I find very educational. You've toyed with the clue for a while, from different angles; press the button learn the answer and move on with your new piece of knowledge! Guilt free play with the app...no wasted time!!! Bravo to the developers!!!
Love it!

Fantastic game. So many free puzzles to choose from in all different levels that I can’t imagine needing to buy new ones for a long time, but the add on packs are very reasonably priced! The ads were irritating but I had no problem paying $5 as much as I’ve been loving this app. It’s very intuitive and I love that it tells you when you have a letter wrong without giving you the whole answer. All in all I highly recommend this app.
Awesome!!!

I just downloaded this app today and can't stop playing! I have another crossword app that requires coins to play older puzzles and you have to watch videos to earn them or pay for them, this isn't like that at all. Wonderful app that I will keep and enjoy everyday! Great mind workout and as someone else said, some very clever clues that make me laugh when I finally get them. It makes me really think and stretch my brain😀. Good job!
Redstone crosswords

Really like this puzzle, PROBLEM, Apple notified me I paid for the no ads, Redstone said I was good to play, but I still get interruptions of ads. Would either like a refund or NO ads like I paid for. Probably fixed. Now, I must tell you, I have searched and signed up for more puzzles than I can count. Goodbye to them all as this is the best I have found. Go for this one, you won't be sorry. Just wish I could do it in a landscape my de on my iPad.
Incomplete words
by Botchybear on 2018/07/22 03:18
The puzzles leave off the last few letters of words. Example: instead of “chair“ it will be “cha”. Like an overstuffedcha. Instead of an overstuffedchair. It’s very confusing!!! Otherwise, there are good points about the puzzles, Including several options. But if they are going to leave off the ends of words they should make that an option that you could choose or not. It’s strange and frustrating.
Ads are obnoxious but game is top notch
by Penbrice on 2017/07/24 18:29
Really nice play experience. Intuitive interface, clever hints, and a lot of auxiliary stuff that enhances the game play (e.g. if you get stuck and want to press on, you can look up a website with options for the block you're stuck on by hitting one button). The ads were barely there for the first puzzle or so I did, and they're pretty constant now. If it was any other game and timing mattered, this would be a dealbreaker, but it isn't so it isn't. I enjoy this game a lot!
Wonderful

I never write reviews but after looking forever for a simple crossword game, this is the best. Simple, easy to use layout, they don't make you earn coins or points or whatever just to play more puzzles, and there's just a ton of puzzles that range in difficulty. There's also very few adds; one when you start a new puzzle, one when you're half way through, and maybe one when you finish I believe.
OK. You win!!

I tried this Crossword app and I loved it!! Except for the ads. 😖. At first I was taken aback by the $4.99 fee to get rid of the ads. Then I remembered that I have spent more than $50 looking for a good crossword app over the years. All of a sudden five bucks sounded pretty good!! My only quibble with the app is that when I select a row down or across, the cursor goes to the end of the row instead of the beginning. I understand your pricing now. My suggestion is to charge SOMETHING for the app. 49 cents?? That will make you distinct in the App Store. Advertise yourself as the crossword app for people who have to do at least one every day. The Xword fanatic. That will also separate you from the rest of the pack. OK you win. You ARE the best out there!! I paid my five bucks and am happy as a clam.
Good, but Online only?

I gave this app only four stars because I can only play it online. A great deal of the reason I downloaded it was to fill time when I am in waiting rooms and lines. Most of these places do not have wifi available. So, the fact the game will not play - or even open - offline is a big problem. Please try to rewrite the program so that the great crossword puzzles which are downloaded onto my iPad can be played offline, any time, anywhere. Thank you.
Suggestion
by Callie_Bear on 2018/05/14 03:45
I had this game in my Samsung Galaxy two 2 two years ago. At this time you were able to type as many letters as you wished because it did not jump to the next one. I would like that back. Apart from that I would like to be able to scroll through the letters without reaching so far upward. (A keyboard option for arrows maybe?) Outside of these this game is wonderful. The absolute best. 🤗
Fun and easy or hard your choice
by Dog lady 222 on 2017/07/12 22:22
I like that I can choose how much I want to think on these puzzles. For me most of the easy puzzles are 6-10 min the hard take a bit more time. But you can turn it off and come back with no change in the timer, it resumes when you come back. It takes a few games to get used to the way the keyboard works on the game board but it's really simple and fun.
5 letter word for repetitive
by Serene outlook on 2018/01/31 00:14
I’m beginning to think these are written by bots because I’ve noticed the same clues and the same words (“Jewish month”, “aquarium fish” and sari and emir come immediately to mind) in several puzzles. Do enough of them and the “hard” puzzles become only a matter of recalling clues from ones you’ve done recently. It’s not the NYT, so I’m not expecting Will Shortz level of puzzles, but still, it shouldn’t be that hard to open the dictionary and find a few words they haven’t used ten times already. I’ve gone from taking 20-25 minutes per puzzle to around 10.
Fun and relaxing!
by Mamaof2cuties on 2017/09/06 02:57
I enjoy this crossword puzzle. The logic of moving around the board is easy and it's easy to tell by the red letters if something you have put is wrong. The ads are a minor pop up and don't intrude on the enjoyment. I appreciate the words, I do easy, as I'm not quick with crossword puzzles but enjoy them. Maybe I'll graduate to the next level up. Lol. If you enjoy crossword puzzles this is a great puzzle and I appreciate that it's free.
Early opinion
by NotQuiteAntiquatedButClose on 2017/06/28 22:28
Just finished only two puzzles but this game is, so far, more enjoyable than other crosswords I've downloaded. A LOT of ads (more than other games) drop into this game while in progress and that is disappointing. However, this game does not seem to originate from the U.K. (Those games can be very frustrating as some words are completely unfamiliar) so I am, up to this point, happy with this game. Words are often challenging, my main goal in a crossword puzzle.
Great Crossword
by 5 golden rings on 2018/06/23 12:56
So far this is the best crossword app I’ve found. I (mostly) enjoy everything about it, however I do have one complaint that does become irritating for me during game play and that is not being able to turn the screen to landscape to fit my iPad, which is why I only gave four stars. Please make an iPad version so users can turn their screens to either portrait OR landscape and I’ll give this app 5 stars for sure! Thank you!
