SCW Puzzle NUT

This is the absolute BEST APP that I have! Period!
It’s so easy to use, has many different/difficult Sunday crosswords to choose from ~ not just the NY or LA paper’s puzzles, and it’s worth buying the ad-free option if you weren’t lucky enough to have found this on App-Advice w/ads removed free... FYI ~ App-Advice is my second choice, just for everything it introduces me to and the free extras, if you care about that sort of stuff. 😉
Thanks for all the hours (and years) of brain-teasers from a dedicated fan ~ master-work, kudos!

I love that this crossword app works in landscape mode on my iPad, as most are only portrait. So I was disappointed to discover there is no way to get rid of the ads constantly FLASHING at the bottom of the screen the WHOLE TIME I’m playing. It’s distracting and definitely not relaxing, which is the reason I downloaded the app... to relax. I’ve looked everywhere for the option to pay and go ad free... I can’t find it. As if this isn’t bad enough... I put down my iPad for 5 minutes, came back, opened the app and was assaulted by a full screen ad with no option to close it, which stayed on the screen for so long I gave up and deleted the app. Come on developers... I actually want to give you my money here I don’t just want a freebie! I’ll pay a reasonable amount either one-time or subscription for the right app. I’ve searched and... there isn’t one! There’s a gap in the iPad crossword puzzle app market, for a landscape app with no ads... why don’t you fill it.

I like the puzzle but it's frustrating!

I like these puzzles except for three things. 1. The background many times interferes with the puzzle blocks, and 2. When I choose a letter a lot of times I have to tap it hard 2 or 3 times before it goes in, and 3. Many times the letter I tap is not what shows up in the box, especially if I'm trying to backspace to erase. It will type a letter instead. This seems to happen mainly on the right top side of the puzzle. That is VERY annoying and time-wasting not to mention I have to go back and correct it. I don't think we should have to watch closely to be sure what we picked is what happened!
