Fun to play but doesn't work reliably

I really enjoy playing this game. I like to challenge myself intellectually and this fits the bill. At least, it does when it works right. Many times the keyboard doesn't appear and I have to completely close the program and restart it. I tried reloading the program from the web but that didn't help. I hope they get it fixed because I enjoy playing it, when it works.

Addictive & informative

I've addressed the puzzle now for about 3months on a daily basis. It is now habit to mind the gap every day at elevenses. The set is quick, stretches the knowledge and imagination at each level of the paragraph. I did run into one glitch which I reported and got a nearly immediate response and a solution. I don't think this app is good for children because it asks for and provides information which I think is more in the range of young and older adults. I would strongly recommend the app for that demographic.

Delightfully different approach to word play

This is an entertaining and challenging way to play with words. You are given a passage on a specific subject and challenged to fill in missing word fragments based only on the context. My only small quibble is when what is missing is part of the name of an individual. At that point, you really have to guess. But I am really enjoying this app a great deal.
