The Go To Crossword App

I have been using this app for a believe two years now maybe longer I don't even know if that is possible but I have downloaded every other crossword app out there either free or have spent more money as well! However, this app continues to remain they go to. it is consistent and reliable. I keep with the easier puzzles (ego boost? Not sure) but for the days I want to challenge myself I can! And when purchases are necessary the prices are reasonable. Sometimes there are system glitches with subscription updates but all neither here nor there. Thank you keep up the crossword pleasing work!!

Very good crossword app

After reading the reviews, I'm guessing a lot of people use this on their phones where an ad banner would be very distracting on the small screen. I use exclusively on an iPad and have found the puzzles fairly challenging and very engaging. I am a decent crossword puzzler so it is nice not to have it be too easy at the same time not being impossible. I have never had a clue/answer not make sense - eventually. The layout and functions are perfect and intuitive and the ad a complete non-issue.
I look forward to getting more puzzles!

Sample puzzle download issue is fixed!

Update 12/28 - Sample puzzle download issue is fixed! Tested a few different samples, they downloaded and opened with barely any wait!
I like the interface alot, easy to use. No Ads! Which is a huge plus. But once you complete all the included puzzles, and want to see which puzzle pack you may want to buy, the Sample Puzzles never download. I have left it working for up to an hour. For what is essentially a text file, its ridiculous. At this point the app is dead. I dont trust that even if I randomly picked a pack to purchase, that they would actually download.
