Your challenge is to decode the puzzle and figure out the quote. You can work at your own pace or compete against other players in a Daily Speed Challenge. CryptoQuote will show you conflicts such as attempting to use the same solution letter twice.

Hasn’t been updated in 4 years. Won’t run.
This app hasn’t been updated for 4 years and now it won’t run. I remember reading that a beta version was in the works but at this rate I’m probably better off finding something else. Everything from my old review still stands, though the typos are less common I guess.
I use this app mostly for the daily time challenge and sometimes to do the regular puzzles. Most of this review goes toward the daily time challenge.
This is a below average app at best. It is frequently unreliable (no puzzles, unable to save your time/rank, frequently told "already completed" when it not). Also there are often spelling/grammatical errors and weird symbols instead of apostrophes/other punctuation that are severe enough to impede properly completing the challenges (and these are not errors that are within well known quotes, these are errors based on incorrect input wherein the overall famous quote is quoted wrong).
Overall, I do enjoy the way the set up is but this is a haphazardly thrown together. Definitely not worth the $3 I spent on it.
Fix iPad version please
I really enjoyed using this app on my iPad, but it only works in custom puzzle mode on the iPhone version. I've submitted lots of requests to fix it but nothing has changed. The custom puzzle screen needs to have a Solve and Scramble button on it or else it is unusable. It has all those features on the iPhone version, but prefer larger keys. Fix it and I'd rate it a 5.
Super happy that a new version is on its way
I really like the daily time challenge, especially that I can see where I ranked.
I also love the feature of making your own puzzles.
