Ratings and Reviews
Not the same as it used to be: UPDATE
Thank you, Blue Ox, for responding to my concerns. Since the last update my issues seem to be resolved. No more ads in Russian. Keep up the good work on all your games!
I have been playing all of your games for years and used to love them all. I actually give 5 Stars for creativity, ingenuity and design. However, In the last year, on u Little Words and Monkey Wrench, I have started getting ads in Russian. I live in the U.S. and my iPad is set to English so that is not the problem. Frankly, some of those ads seem a bit sketchy. Of course, I don’t know because I don’t read Russian.
My other concern is that in the last year or so the 7 Little Words and Monkey Wrench puzzles have taken a political turn. I don’t play puzzles and games to have political views subliminally, or overtly, suggested, regardless of what those views are. I play them to stretch my brain, to be tested on things that I know, to learn new things and to be entertained. Please, please please go back to puzzles that are not politically biased or oriented. I am on the verge of deleting both games, which is a shame because they are some of the most unique, fun to play word games on the market.
I will wait to see if I get a reply regarding these 2 concerns before deleting.
Thank you for your interest in and attention to your customers. I look forward to your response.

Thanks for your feedback. We try to avoid any political clues and solutions because they are frequently controversial, but some political figures appear in a historical context. If you can provide examples that would be helpful. We're not sure why you would see ads in Russian. The advertising systems we use have access to ads from around the world, but it seems unlikely that they would be targeted at an English-speaking American. If you are able to take screenshots of ads that seem sketchy to you, we can look into the situation. Send details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hate the ads
I used to love the game, so I paid for the main version and bought a few expansion packs for more puzzles. The puzzles teach me new words and challenge my vocabulary.
All of a sudden you started getting an ad after each days “free” game. I bought it to avoid this. I emailed and the response was, “The paid version now comes with ads” which annoys me. To make matters worse, I had a software issue with my iPhone 6s+ (unrelated to this game) and when I got the game back from the cloud I lost my expansion packs. I’m not paying twice for them, as the progress I’ve made is lost as well, and I don’t care to do the same puzzle twice.
The game itself is challenging, and while they have hints you can easily find the answers online if you get stuck. I have done this and then researched to word or topic to learn more, which is why I downloaded it originally. It has helped expand my knowledge in a fun way. Knowing the letter count helps me figure out the answer even if it is unfamiliar, it just takes patience. Fun game but the rating is now 3, down from five due to the ads and loss of already purchased content.

Sorry for your recent negative experiences with our app. We have never had a paid, ad-free version (though we are considering it), but we are only showing ads around the free Daily Puzzles, never inside purchased packs. You should definitely get your paid packs back. Go to the app menu, scroll down to "Restore Purchases," tap on it, and follow the directions on the next screen. If that doesn't work, contact email@example.com.
I absolutely loved this game but it’s new redesign just feels absolutely awful. The icon looks awful, the front menu makes it feel like there are fewer options, but overall, the actual puzzle screen is awful. The top banner takes up extra space on the screen that could be used for making the words bigger- which there is no longer an easy option to switch between font sizes by just tapping the hints. I’m not fond of the lack of a “guess” button, either. Letters take too long to get to move from the bank to the guessing area and then it takes too long for a correct answer to move on it’s own. It takes forever to clear the letters that were already chosen, especially without a clear button anymore. Too difficult to see the difference between puzzles when some are answered and some are not (no longer alternating color patterns to align with each hint/too similar font choices for answers and letter counts) and too easy to accidentally hit the guess button... Please undo this garbage or allow us to choose between the current and classic modes.
