Sample puzzles

I've solved all of the puzzles that are available when you first download the app, but when you try to download a sample to decide wether or not you want to buy the whole package, it says "this may take a moment", and it just won't download. At this point the app is useless. You click "download sample" and it immediately wants you to login and purchase it. If you want to try a new puzzle package, don't bother. For the past MONTH and a half the only option it has given me is to purchase or get nothing at all.

Great but glitchy

Decent number of free puzzles to solve. But there's a technical problem I keep running into. Swapping clues from "across" to "down" is done by double-tapping any of the squares. But every time I play, I run into the issue of the double tap not working and I get stuck in either "down" or "across" orientation until the glitch decides to work. Sometimes it takes several minutes of randomly tapping around the board until it finally starts working again. Very frustrating!!

Love this app!

I love this app and use it daily! It's great being able to switch between multiple puzzles. I've bought additional puzzle packs through IAP and have enjoyed the variety in authors, topics, and difficulties. Also very appreciative of the easy and intuitive user interface.
