Great but few puzzles

I would buy a full version with a lot more puzzles offered. Packages of 100 for .99 cents? Like 7 little words.

Very fun...but

Bring down the price of the paid apps. $3 for only 50 puzzles? It's fun, but definitely not worth that price.


Well done version of the website app. And free!
