FIVE STARS by N.W. These cryptograms are excellent and interesting. They have chosen a wide variety of subjects and individuals for their puzzles which keeps me coming back for more.

FIVE STARS by Constance L. Many of the quotations I had never heard before, but were very interesting. I liked that the different levels of difficulty were clearly indicated as well. One of my favorite features was the ability to get a "Hint", as I am just getting into these puzzles. The rest of the series is on my agenda, as I complete this book. They are reasonably priced, and you can repeat them by recalling them from your archives. All over evaluation: GREAT!

FIVE STARS by E.M.M. This is the best cryptogram app ever. The puzzles are organized by topic. There are stars next to each, indicating the degree of difficulty. The puzzle has the letter count under each square, giving you another way to figure out which letter to use. You can turn that feature off. When you enter a letter, all occurrences are filled in for you. Also when you tap on a blank, it turns to yellow and all places where that letter would appear are also yellow. Also, when you enter a letter the next letter in the word is highlighted so you don't have to tap it. Of course, you can jump around in the puzzle if you want. Changing a letter also changes the letter every place that occurs. You can get a hint if you need it. Highly recommended and addictive.


The best app for serious cryptogram cryptoquip solvers. The quotes are hand-picked, ranked by difficulty, grouped by topic and carefully validated to be error free! See how your time compares with other experts.

The 100 hand-picked puzzles are organized into ten categories like Ancient Wisdom, Celebrities, Comedy, Philosophy, Politicians and Sports. When you finish the puzzle, you'll see a graph showing how your time compares to expert cryptogram puzzlers and the number of hints taken if any.

Designed from scratch for fast play, this app allows you to concentrate on solving the puzzle. The result is pure puzzle solving fun with no ads or distractions!

Advanced play features include letter frequencies, multi-level undo and hints. Three difficulty levels will challenge beginners and seasoned players alike. Share the results with your puzzling friends with a single tap via email, Facebook or Twitter.

Nine more puzzle packs, each with 100 puzzles in various themes like Funny, Inspirational and Killer cryptograms are available for in-app purchase. These will provide HOURS and HOURS of fun!

If you like word games or logic puzzles, cryptograms are a fun way to exercise your brain!

All the puzzles have validated difficulty levels and times aggregated from the popular Puzzle Baron websites. His family of web sites have served millions and millions of puzzle enthusiasts since 2006.

What's New in Version 1.2.1

Happy Holidays! Well, almost anyway. It's definitely the beginning of what many call the silly season, though perhaps that is referring to the US Election. Oh, no, wait, that's another whole year away. Never mind.

Thanks for all the kind words about the re-design. It's heartening to put in so much effort and have it appreciated. If you could write a review with those same thoughts, that would be the icing on the cake! This update fixes a problem with "Restore Purchases" and a rare crash - so far the only glitches we found in that major update (knock on wood).

New in this release is Feedback. We take our support seriously so we're really excited about this. Unlike a "free" app, we can afford to pay people (based here in sunny but dry California) to answer your questions and fix any problems. Until now, the simplest way was to email us, but that can be frustrating if your device is not configured correctly. Now, if you have a problem, just tap the new Feedback link on the home screen and then send us a quick message. It's just like sending a text. We'll respond, usually within a few hours, and get things sorted out.

Of course, you can use Feedback to say nice things too, but reviews work even better for that! See the new Menu option "Review Cryptograms" to go right there. Thanks in advance. Your reviews are critical to app store success and will allow us to add exciting new features over the next couple of months.

Given the time of year, we're confident you'll enjoy the Holidays puzzle pack. This volume is particularly fun for beginning Cryptologists, as the category can be a huge clue to some of the words. Enough said, as we don't want to spoil it! And, of course, there's also the Political volume, containing masterful quotes from great politicians, just to remind us that it doesn't have to be silly after all.
