I like the puzzle but it's frustrating!

I like these puzzles except for three things. 1. The background many times interferes with the puzzle blocks, and 2. When I choose a letter a lot of times I have to tap it hard 2 or 3 times before it goes in, and 3. Many times the letter I tap is not what shows up in the box, especially if I'm trying to backspace to erase. It will type a letter instead. This seems to happen mainly on the right top side of the puzzle. That is VERY annoying and time-wasting not to mention I have to go back and correct it. I don't think we should have to watch closely to be sure what we picked is what happened!



This is just the right level of difficulty for me. I often have to look up words while solving and am learning new words from each puzzle, which I love. The only reason I'm giving 4 rather than 5 stars is that the navigation is frustrating - it often does not respond to taps, and it would be nicer to have the 'next' button at the bottom so you don't obscure the puzzle each time you click it. Also it would be nicer if 'next' skipped finished words. But overall, the best crossword app I've found so far, and I've tried a bunch.


SCW Puzzle NUT

This is the absolute BEST APP that I have! Period!
It’s so easy to use, has many different/difficult Sunday crosswords to choose from ~ not just the NY or LA paper’s puzzles, and it’s worth buying the ad-free option if you weren’t lucky enough to have found this on App-Advice w/ads removed free... FYI ~ App-Advice is my second choice, just for everything it introduces me to and the free extras, if you care about that sort of stuff. 😉
Thanks for all the hours (and years) of brain-teasers from a dedicated fan ~ master-work, kudos!
