Angry consumer

The latest update is a POS! The app will no longer load any new puzzles. Customer service, of course, blamed it on Apple. They told me to delete the app and reload. Now, I have no puzzles at all. It looks like the only way to download new puzzles is to subscribe. If that is the new business model, then just say so up front, do not lie to us. I was a subscriber for YEARS, but no longer. Boo!!!!!

Stopped working


It stopped working some time ago on my 4th. Generation iPad. I recently upgraded to an iPad Pro so thought I’d give it another try. Didn’t work on initial startup so I deleted it and downloaded it again. Still doesn’t work. Just repeatedly gives me a message about having trouble restoring purchases.

Stay Away!


This app used to be great, until they stopped supporting it. Go back in time two years and it gets five stars. Today all you can get is weird British puzzles (no offense to my London friends). This is no longer what I paid for. Searching for a new crossword app.
