A cryptogram is a quote that has been encrypted using letter substitution where each letter stands uniquely for another letter in the alphabet. Your job is to decode the message in the least amount of time by substituting each letter. However, every second and each incorrect guess adds more time to your score.

What's New in Version 3.0
iPad Retina and iPhone 5 support for Cryptogram, Crypto-Families and Quotefalls.
- Added high resolution art for iPad retina support.
- New layout to get the most from the iPhone 5's larger screen, including a wider keyboard!
- Average puzzle times are now based on millions of scores.
Sorry for the long delay between updates - recreating all of the art at high resolutions for the retina iPads took a long time. Now that that task is over we'll get back to continuing to make Cryptogram better and better.
User interface needs work.
Good selection of initial cryptograms. The option to print puzzle is nice. But user interface needs work for playing on an iPhone (5C). While background is pretty, it is too dark. Loose letter visibility in the background. Could be ok on iPad but straining to see the letters is irritating on an iPhone. Getting a headache trying to see is a big negative. When selecting the same letter twice, the previous does not delete. Why not? At least ask if I would like to replace previous usage in case the new was selected by accident. Fine tune the user interface for both iPhone and iPad. Probably will not purchase any in-app puzzles. Wish there had been a 'test out' version before purchasing. Would have only purchased when the user interface was improved. There are many nice things about the app, but improve the user interface. Will not purchase any in-app puzzled due to not only the interface but would like to know how many puzzles come with each purchase. Not going to pay 10 cents per puzzle. As I stated, fine tune the user interface.
I have been solving Cryptograms for over 20 years. I love Black Lab Consulting games. I have many of their games and I find them fun and challenging. This Cryptogram is by far my favorite. What I like about it is, you can't stop the clock, you can't reset it, and every letter you use isn't eliminated as you use it. I like this type of challenge. Norman Basham is brilliant and offers many games that will delight you and you will truly enjoy the varieties. Check out All Black Labs games and have a blast!
Challenging and fun
One of my favorite apps. I love cryptograms and scrambles but find the ones in the paper too easy. I like that you can make this easier or harder if you want by turning incorrect answers on or off. The option to play against the clock can also make it more challenging. Recommended for puzzle people. Worth the cost.
