Really enjoyable

I am gonna go out on a limb here and say this is the best timed crossword puzzle known to humankind.

Oh, you’ll think, I am soooo clever for solving these puzzles! These puzzles are so fun and easy! I am an invincible champion! And then on the next one you will find your heart racing as the countdown clock ticks down to nothing and your win streak goes up in flames.

Simple. Delightful. Would give additional stars if that were possible.

I had trouble with this app after using it a few years. The changes made to it resulted in my not be able to review puzzle before I reviewed it. I guess I was pressing the wrong ‘button’. Once I received an email from app created, which was VERY prompt after my negative review, I learned to press the correct ‘button’ , which allows me to review. I like having two puzzles to solve each day also.

Developer Response ,

Hi Bend Gal, thanks for playing our mini crossword. You can still review and finish the puzzle by clicking the 'View Puzzle' button to the left of "Continue" button. "Continue" sends you to the Home Screen and "View Puzzle" let's you view the puzzle. We switched the order of these buttons based on user feedback (others were confused in the other direction), so we understand your confusion, but you can still always view the puzzle. Also, if you've enjoyed the game, we'd love it if you'd re-consider your negative App Store review since it affects our revenue, and makes it harder for us to support the app going forward. Have a great day!

Super fun daily mini crossword! Love this app!!

I like that it’s timed and that I get to compete against myself. I had some friends download it and we play against each other now too. My longest streak was 9 days and I look forward to when the puzzle comes out at night to try to get back to it. Def recommend!
