The Crossword Solver helps you when you get stuck on a crossword.

Enter the letters you already know, and the blank squares you don't, and let Crossword Solver do the rest!

You can also look up anagrams (paid upgrade with a free trial first).

The Crossword Solver uses the UK Advanced Cryptics Dictionary to find suitable words to fit in the grid.

You can then look up the definitions of each word to see which best matches the clue you are trying to solve.

What’s New

Version 2.10

I've hopefully fixed a bug where the text entry boxes would sometimes disappear off the screen. I tried to fix this before, but it was still broken for a few people - thank you for your patience. If it still isn't working properly, please let me know!

Great simple helpful app

Just suggests possible words so you've still got to think about the answers. Quick access to definitions as well. A relatively no-frills app perfect for getting unstuck quickly. I tried a few similar apps but this eventually emerged as my favorite.
