I love this app! So far they offer just the right amount of a challenge and gradually increase in difficulty. I really like the quotes...some humorous, some philosophical and some just common sense. When the author is named, sometimes it's a surprise.

Another plus is being able to compare your performance to others. It's definitely worth the minimal cost of new puzzles. I highly recommend this app.

User interface needs work.

Good selection of initial cryptograms. The option to print puzzle is nice. But user interface needs work for playing on an iPhone (5C). While background is pretty, it is too dark. Loose letter visibility in the background. Could be ok on iPad but straining to see the letters is irritating on an iPhone. Getting a headache trying to see is a big negative. When selecting the same letter twice, the previous does not delete. Why not? At least ask if I would like to replace previous usage in case the new was selected by accident. Fine tune the user interface for both iPhone and iPad. Probably will not purchase any in-app puzzles. Wish there had been a 'test out' version before purchasing. Would have only purchased when the user interface was improved. There are many nice things about the app, but improve the user interface. Will not purchase any in-app puzzled due to not only the interface but would like to know how many puzzles come with each purchase. Not going to pay 10 cents per puzzle. As I stated, fine tune the user interface.

Perfect! Buy it - you will love it!

If you like cryptograms, just get it. If you don't like cryptograms, get it anyway and you'll learn to like 'em. The interface is beautifully and brilliantly done both aesthetically and functionally. The variety of puzzles and the choices of difficulty levels insure you'll have tons of puzzles to do whatever your skill level. Pretty much a perfect app and more than worth the price. Highly recommend.
