Enjoy Cryptic Crosswords anywhere

The app allows you to enjoy cryptic crosswords on your phone solving challenging puzzles wherever you are.

Meet Ross – always on hand to help

An innovative feature is the inclusion of a fun assistant called Ross who is always on hand to explain how a clue works or give you hints when you are stuck. Ross uses artificial intelligence to do this – the only AI that can tackle cryptic crossword clues. This includes clues that Ross has never seen before.
Load newspaper crosswords straight into your phone

Another innovative feature is the scan feature: point your phone camera at a printed crossword – such as what you might find in a daily newspaper – and Ross will use modern machine vision techniques to read in the grid and clues so you can solve the crossword on your phone.

Impressive and helpful

Trying to learn to solve cryptic crosswords for the first time is extremely daunting. I can reveal answers for clues but not always see how those answers are reached. This is the first app I’ve found that could explain not only its own clues, but those of any cryptic crossword I attempt. I am blown away by the functionality and highly recommend it to anyone wanting to learn to solve a cryptic crossword.

Cryptic crossword help

As an American tackling cryptic crosswords from The Telegraph, I was keen to try this app. Sometimes Ross and I are both at a loss to explain how an answer works, but mostly he (the app) is spot on! Easy to use, fun interface (Ross), and helpful - thanks!
