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.

Must have

If you enjoy crosswords, particularly cryptic ones, this app is worthwhile. The AI is a bit limited at times, but surprisingly intuitive at other times. The ability to import crosswords from sites like The Guardian or to capture crosswords from photos are both is a nice feature

Explains how cryptic clues work!

I’m learning how to solve cryptic crosswords, and this app is fantastic for that! Other apps can tell you the answer to a clue, but this is the only one I’ve found that actually explains how the cryptic part works to give the answer, which is exactly what I need!
