This app is great!

I love this app! The crosswords are challenging enough to keep me interested. I really enjoy challenging crosswords because I get to learn all sorts of new things by searching for the answer on Wikipedia or in a dictionary. I love that this app has 600 puzzles for each level of difficulty -- that's so many! And it's fun to have a goal to aim for. The app does crash for me quite a bit, but I've never had it erase my progress on the puzzle. I love the interface and the general look of the app -- it really is clean! The only thing I'd suggest is a way to know whether or not you've typed in the correct word. The app will give a little ding when you type in a word, but I've found that that doesn't actually indicate your word was correct. The ding is confusing because I always assume it means I was right, and then I have to go back through the puzzle and find which words were wrong at the end. It'd be nice to have an option/setting that allows you to turn on or off indications that you typed in the correct word. Overall, really fun and addicting app!!

Love the format but can’t play what I paid for

I love the way the hints are built into the design instead of a list off to the side.
I hate that it got stuck with Easy at 34 solved and the 34th puzzle is complete but it won’t move past it. Tried deleting answers and reentering—it will give me the 100% complete pop up but main screen still shows it as 100% complete and when you click to solve puzzle it keeps showing the completed puzzle.
It did it on the medium and hard later on so I deleted the app and reinstalled, I got med and difficult back but not easy. Tried to contact developer but ended up never finding a link.
Sorry to have to post problem here.
FYI I paid the $3.99 for ad-free version.

Developer Response ,

Hi Jab3112000, thank you for your review. "100% Complete" means all the fields are filled in, but it does not mean that they are all correct. You can use "mark error" to highlight the errors in your puzzle, or you could use "next puzzle" to skip the puzzle entirely. Please contact our support team using either the link in the e-mail you'll get this in, or via if you run into any other problems?

Not stable enough!!

I would give it a higher rating if things stayed as you entered them! Having given answers, then checking them after I finish, the letters I inserted HAVE CHANGED!!! This is quite frustrating as I do enjoy crossword puzzles, but I will not buy any more unless this quirk is corrected!
UPDATE: This just gets worse and worse! I would have gotten perfect scores if the letters didn’t keep changing! Please update and fix this annoying quirk! I really like puzzles and this one would be great if you fixed it!
