Works Great

Works like a charm for me. I don’t have any of the problems cited in other reviews. All the Guardian puzzles are available and the puzzle navigation is smooth, unlike when I try to do the Times puzzles in their app.

Wonderful archive

Great app! There are so many games available in this archive and the app works flawlessly and smoothly.

Doesn’t remember settings

The app doesn’t remember any settings you select to do things like turn off the timer; you have to re-do it every time you open the app back up which is super annoying.
