Great App

I have always wanted to solve cryptic crosswords, firstly I bought a book by Tim Moorey which was the How to solve the Times Cryptic Crosswords, that was the start, very informative, then I bought the Teasel App which built on this knowledge and now I have purchased this app, which is absolutely fantastic! I have only used letter clues a couple of times and have managed to complete 4 full crosswords. This app is well worth the money for hours of pleasure “cracking” the cryptic clues. Loving it and would highly recommend.

So close to perfection

As an avid cryptic crossword fan, I was delighted when I came upon this in the App Store. The clues are balanced just perfectly and well-written, and the interface is clear and intuitive. The only reason I’ve not gone for the full 5 stars is the lack of syncing progress across devices. I love to snuggle up with the wife to tackle these on my iPad, but I’d love to then be able to pick up where we left off on my phone later on when I’m alone. If syncing ever gets implemented, my score would go up to a 5 easily!

Money well spent

Flawless in design, great puzzles. I fairly quickly worked through the free ones, so paid for the full packs, and have loved every minute I’ve spent solving them.
Please Teazel, come up with a new app of cryptics (maybe slightly trickier for those who have some experience at solving these) 😊
