2 Across, Lite Edition
By Eliza Block
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
This is the Lite Edition of the celebrated crossword app 2 Across, recently selected as Apple's "App Store Pick of the Week". It contains all the functionality of the full 2 Across, but with a more limited selection of puzzles. Try it out for free and see for yourself what all the hype is about!
With version 1.2.2 of the Lite Edition, you can download and solve puzzles from the New York Times, The Independent, The Onion, and The Sydney Morning Herald. With the full edition, tens of thousands more puzzles become available, from an ever-growing list of sources.
* View the grid and clues together or separately, zoom in and out, and easily move around in the grid.
* Write in pen or pencil; check or reveal any part of the puzzle.
* Customize the solving environment with a wide variety of settings.
* Reorder, delete, and organize saved puzzles.
What's New in Version 1.2.2
New collection of puzzle sources: The Independent, The New York Times, The Sydney Morning Herald, and The Onion.
What happened to the full version?
I paid for the full version and with the iOS 6 upgrade, it's gone. I get that we don't own the music we pay for on iTunes, but it's pretty ridiculous that an app that many of us paid for can just disappear without notice. I looked it up through Google and the company webpage says it's not available in the U.S. store anymore.
Awesome. Well, I guess I paid $5.99 for nothing. If developers don't intend to provide, or can't provide, ongoing support for their products, maybe they should just give them away for nothing, as that is all that the $5.99 full version of 2 Across is now worth.
Great Ap,p But Lacks...
We all love free, even after purchasing the regular priced app I still consider this one the best for the buck. I mean as far as the sources go please include more... Instead of those weirdly odd foreign puzzles. I can barely understand them when they talk, u definitely can't understand when they puzzle. So please ADD MORE SOURCES!
Favorite crossword app
Best crossword app, but please support .puz format, I miss my American Values crosswords from the Onion which are now only available in that format. Also, why no iPad app. I have to use a different app on my iPad.
