Users of the new iPad (7th generation) have not been able to see the letters being drawn on the crossword grid. This update adds a toggle on the Settings screen to switch off the drawing animation, which should work round the problem until we can find a permanent fix.
Ratings and Reviews
Fun even though I’m terrible
I enjoy the crosswords even though I rank near the bottom. This is a British puzzle so sometimes the clues/answers are regional.
Ruined After Update
The most recent update has destroyed an otherwise enjoyable and problem-free app. It worked just fine since I downloaded it ages ago, and previous updates never posed an issue. However, the same cannot be said of the most recent update that was pushed out a few weeks ago. The app crashes all the time, regardless of what option I choose: whether I'm trying to access a puzzle, complete the surveys for stamps, or enter a word in a puzzle (if I'm lucky enough to get into one before it freezes and crashes), the app fails every time. I get maybe 10 seconds before it freezes up and shuts down. I won't delete and reinstall because I'd lose all 1300+ of my stamps. Please fix now!!!
For months I have been working the puzzles with varying degrees of success. The puzzles have consistently been challenging. Unlike some other puzzle sites, the clues are well-written and seldom repeated. I do appreciate the immediate feedback on my performance. I also like the expanded numbers of puzzles to work. Thank you for offering hours of entertainment.
