The perfect companion app to all your geek related interests. Sick of crosswords and vocabulary puzzles that claim to embrace geek culture, but then saddle you with archaic words no one would ever know or want to use? Look no further friends, because Geekwords is the Angellic herald to your unanswered prayers.
We forego all the trapping of traditional crossword puzzles to bring you exactly what you want. Vocabulary inspired by the tv shows you love to watch, and reinforcement of the main plot points, themes, and character arcs as they come up in each episode. Worried you missed the point of an episode? We’ve got you covered with our charming and evocative clues.
Best of all, you don’t have to pay a cent to play our daily puzzles after watching your favorite tv shows. You can support our cracker-jack staff of nerdites simply by watching an ad, and thus earn puzzles in perpetuity without any associated feelings of guilt! Alternatively, you can subscribe to us and unlock EVERY PUZZLE WE EVER MADE OR WILL MAKE, thus stating explicitly that you support geek-culture whole-heartedly and understand the nature of supply and demand.
Got stuck? We have hints, though if you’re a true geek you should honestly just rewatch the show. Is your favorite show missing? Support us and let us know what you want us to add, and we’ll do it. No really, we listen, and we respond by making puzzles for YOUR show. That’s how committed we are to supporting your nerdery.
We are adding content as fast as we can, and we have no intention of stopping.
Can’t stop the signal.

Ratings and Reviews
I’ve never liked crosswords until I got this app. The crosswords are actually interesting and there is a puzzle for each episode of a show. The variety of shows is pretty large. Of course, lots of geeky shows are featured. I like to do the puzzles right after I watch a show-it’s pretty fun to do and it’s starting to become addicting. I recommend this app to anyone I know that really likes a particular show because I know that this app will enhance their experience. The design and function is great, and it’s worth spending money on.
Cash grab and info collecting
First, before you even play anything in the app it tells you to log in using your Facebook. It has guest login but below that is a disclaimer that they can’t track purchases or progress unless you use your Facebook! Sounds like crap to me! I don’t even have Facebook anymore because of how much data they collect on you so I only see this as a convenient front in order to collect data on you as well. You can make a fricken game WITHOUT having your customer log into Facebook AND still be able to track progress and purchases without compromising consumer data. The devs just sound lazy or money hungry.
Which brings me to my second point. You want people to PAY HOW MUCH?! Jesus Christ. I’m even more convinced that this is nothing but a blatant cash grab using pop culture and tv to lure people in. Can barely even play a stupid game without some sort of pay wall. I will be removing this app from my phone immediately! I may even wipe it from my download history. The amount of app developers that get away with this kind of stuff should be ashamed. I guess the money cow helps them sleep at night otherwise their conscience wouldn’t let them.
Developer Response ,
Hi music man_eli, though I encourage users to login with Facebook so that I can save information about purchased puzzles and track bugs, it is not a requirement, especially if you do not wish to make a purchase.
You do not have to pay anything to play the free daily puzzles, which I provide a new one every day on the home screen. The game is completely free. If you want to play puzzles not currently available for free, I recommend purchasing a 1 year subscription which gets you access to the over 800 puzzles currently available for less than a dollar a month.
As to the money cow, there isn't one. This one man project is break even only due to the cost of servers, app developer fees, and outsourced art. I make the puzzles myself because I love the tv shows and I always personally wanted an app just like this one.
I'm sorry you didn't like the pricing of the IAPs in Geekwords, but I hope you'll keep playing via the free daily puzzles.
These crosswords are incredible! The hints are useful, but I enjoy working it out on my own. I appreciate the creators who saw a need for this type of game because regular crossword puzzles cover a variety of topics often making it difficult for me to complete one.
