Spelling Errors and Obscure Clues
The puzzles are challenging but the clues are often obscure and the words frequently misspelled in order to get them to fit. That alone can be very frustrating when trying to figure out intersecting words. The fill-in-the-blank clues didn't make a lot of sense until I realized that very frequently the last 2-3 words of the clue don't belong to the phrase that includes the blank, but instead hint at the answer. Very confusing as there isn't anything to indicate where one ends and the other begins. The author of the puzzles relies heavily on clues that pertain to the military, many from around the time of WWII, as well as music, books, and shows popular in or near that era. I prefer working more difficult crosswords, but while these puzzles do present a challenge, there are often too many outdated references per puzzle to make it seem that it's a fair one. If incorrect spelling and obscure authors, etc., don't bother you, these puzzles are fine for just passing time.
Crossword is tough but fun!
I rate this as a great crossword App.! It challenges the mind and if you don't no what letter to put at first it give you a chance to add one in to help a little and I like it👍! It has the letters to hit and if that letter doesn't go there it (x's) it out and let you keep finding the right one. That what I like about it because, trying to figure it out when sometime it challenge you to hard it's good to know it give you an opposition of guessing or giving a letter. Thank you and keep the crosswords coming, I like this App!👌👍😊
Challenging but defeats the purpose of vocabulary exercise when half the answers have to be misspelled or even wrong altogether just for the sake of fitting. I don't mind the outdated topics as I believe it keeps your mind open/ culturally aware, although topic categories would get more users. Very fun, love the auto correction and hint settings, but needs a way of verifying submitted puzzles for accuracy of info
