The Crossword Solver helps you when you get stuck on a crossword.

Enter the letters you already know, and the blank squares you don't, and let Crossword Solver do the rest!

You can also look up anagrams (paid upgrade with a free trial first).

The Crossword Solver uses the UK Advanced Cryptics Dictionary to find suitable words to fit in the grid.

You can then look up the definitions of each word to see which best matches the clue you are trying to solve.

What’s New

Version 2.9

I've made a few small improvements to the app:

• I've optimised the app to look better on larger screen devices.

• The "Rate this app" button now works again. If you previously tried to give me a rating and couldn't, why not rate it now? I read every review, and I really appreciate them :-)

• The Crossword & Anagrams pages looked similar, making it difficult to tell which page you were on. I've added different borders to the text entry boxes as a quick visual way to distinguish them.

• I now support "Dynamic Type" for the word lists. You can change the size of the text in the 'Settings' app, under 'Display & Brightness' -> Text Size.

Great simple helpful app

Just suggests possible words so you've still got to think about the answers. Quick access to definitions as well. A relatively no-frills app perfect for getting unstuck quickly. I tried a few similar apps but this eventually emerged as my favorite.
