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 2.11

• I now support the new Dark Mode in iOS 13. Previously if you used Dark Mode the text wasn't visible in text entry boxes as it became white-on-white. Sorry about the problem!
• I've fixed a problem where some text was obscured by the 'notch' on the iPhone X and 11 when holding the phone in landscape orientation.
• Various other minor bug fixes.

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.
