Sung hero?! ,


Just had to comment after glancing through the others. I've played your crosswords for so many years I can't begin to come up with a number. You've been my go to remedy for tension headaches after a stressful day at the office or after hauling a van load of kids around to ball games! You've been beside me through a divorce and the chaos of being a Single Mom. There have been many things you couldn't take care of but, hey, I think you've been great investment over the years! Now look at us, you're an App and I'm once again turning to you, this time it's to keep my brain firing! While my hair turns gray and I may doze off every now and then..I tend to ramble a bit and lose my focus. Just wanted to thank you for being there and now here! I think you've been a bargain! If you could just turn the lamp out now....

Hands down the BEST puzzle

I used to play New York Times Crossword Puzzle until they got snooty and started charging to play their puzzles. Since then I have tried to find a puzzle app that I really liked without much success. Then I found Penny Dell and it’s the bomb! I love it! Three different skill levels and they don’t charge you to see the wrong letters. All you have to do is watch a short video ad. Many of the other puzzle apps are set to the younger crowd with questions about rap songs and the titles or artists and frankly in my opinion only an idiot would listen to such garbage so I would just wait until the next day to see if they had something more my style. No such problems with Penny Dell. Thanks for a great App.

Those ads

The new ad for some very sugary sweet cereal that I would never eat much less give my kids, takes two to three times to run. Sitting through two minutes is not the same as sitting thru a 30 second ad. Is it you or them? And as I just read from another review, some ads crash. Get it together. Or is this a hoax? Are you reading these and laughing? I'm giving you one star.

A week or so later...

Tonight when I started your game I noticed that the ad was taking a while so I decided to time it. It’s been on for over 11 minutes and it’s not over yet. I know you want us to pay to use your game so we don’t have to watch the ads but this is a bit extreme. I have noticed that there’s a whole new way ads are run and new types of ads, not just for other games. And this is true for other games I play. I have seen this ad many times now (for iPhone photo school) and it’s length varies. So, when I finished a game and the ad started - it was the same ad and was going to run for 15 minutes. Are y’all aware of this?
