Lovers of Words


I absolutely love words and I actually know quite a lot of them from reading so crossword puzzles seemed like the natural progression. These puzzles were really interesting and kept me enteretained for a long time. Not to mention they are easy enough that I can solve them but hard enough that solving them takes a little time and a little effort. This was definitely worth the money as it's still giving me tons of enjoyment trying to solve each puzzle.

Love this crossword app!


I am a crossword puzzle lover and this app is fantastic! There are different levels of difficulty to choose from and once you download a puzzle, you no longer need to be connected to the internet- which is great! There are also options for clues, reveal a letter or even the whole word, and dictionary help. There are too many great options to list! The navigation is easy to follow as well. I love it!


C.C. Itunes

Finally a good crossword app that doesn’t crash, lag, repeat. I am very happy with this crossword app. I love the option to chose between different difficulty levels. I also like the option to quickly check out a word in a dictionary. Each puzzle is unique which is a bonus. Hours and hours of fun.
