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.
Perfect! Buy it - you will love it!
If you like cryptograms, just get it. If you don't like cryptograms, get it anyway and you'll learn to like 'em. The interface is beautifully and brilliantly done both aesthetically and functionally. The variety of puzzles and the choices of difficulty levels insure you'll have tons of puzzles to do whatever your skill level. Pretty much a perfect app and more than worth the price. Highly recommend.
I love this app! So far they offer just the right amount of a challenge and gradually increase in difficulty. I really like the quotes...some humorous, some philosophical and some just common sense. When the author is named, sometimes it's a surprise.
Another plus is being able to compare your performance to others. It's definitely worth the minimal cost of new puzzles. I highly recommend this app.
