If you love it in the newspaper, you’ll love it even more in a format you can access any place, any time. In this popular game, each letter is replaced with a different one. Your challenge is to decode the puzzle and figure out the quote. You can work at your own pace or compete against other players in a Daily Speed Challenge. CryptoQuote will show you conflicts such as attempting to use the same solution letter twice.
* More than 2000 carefully selected quotes, plus a new Daily Challenge Puzzle each day
* Custom keyboard to see the entire puzzle
* Share puzzles or quotes with others
* Quote of the Day widget
* Create your own puzzle or enter one from a newspaper
* Letter frequency tool
* Word search tool
* Physical keyboard support
Great if you like: Sudoku, Crossword puzzles, word search, cipher, encryption, code solving and decoding.
Fixed an issue for some players where after finishing all of the thousands of included puzzles, they would see puzzle #1 repeatedly.

Ratings and Reviews
I like to listen to music or books while playing. EVery ad and every time you move to a new puzzle, the sound cuts out. This is irritating and will make me stop using this app,
Please improve typography!
For a game that is based entirely on text, I'm surprised that the developers seem to know nothing about typography. The interface is so unpleasant to look at. There's no white space around any of the letters; they're just crammed up against the edges of the boxes, and the edges of the screen. Their idea of a visual improvement is to make the name of the author extremely giant size when you solve the puzzle.
I'm thrilled that this product is being supported with significant updates. But I just wish they'd pay a little more attention to the aesthetics. I'm also hoping that the quotes won't be quite as sexist as they have been in the past. When one of the tricks to solving the puzzles is is that you know the pronouns are almost always going to be masculine, there's definitely something out of whack.
Other than this, the puzzle lives up to its reputation for capturing the spirit of the cryptoquip puzzle Iused to do in the newspaper every day, and that's great.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for taking the time to review our game.
What device are you using for CryptoQuote? We did make changes to try to increase the font size as much as possible in response to feedback that the letters were too small, but we take your point that we may have gone too far.
Also, we're consciously selecting more quotes by women for the Daily Challenge and have done some auditing of the included quotes. Please let us know email@example.com if you have any concerns.
Maybe the last update improved iPad function, but...
I’ve enjoyed this app for a long time, but the daily challenge now no longer functions. It appears to have something to do with newer iPhones with no home button. After completing the challenge, the app simply locks up and there’s nothing one can do but force quit out.
