The Crossword Solver helps you when you get stuck on a crossword.

Enter the letters you already know, and the blank squares you don't, and let Crossword Solver do the rest!

You can also look up anagrams (paid upgrade with a free trial first).

The Crossword Solver uses the UK Advanced Cryptics Dictionary to find suitable words to fit in the grid.

You can then look up the definitions of each word to see which best matches the clue you are trying to solve.

What’s New

Version 2.8

I've made a couple of small improvements:

• On iOS 8 upwards I can now detect if an iOS Definitions Dictionary hasn't yet been downloaded, and give appropriate help to download one.

• I've fixed a bug where the text entry boxes would sometimes disappear off the screen.

If you like this update, please consider leaving a review in the app store. It encourages me to keep adding new features to the app :-)

Great simple helpful app

Just suggests possible words so you've still got to think about the answers. Quick access to definitions as well. A relatively no-frills app perfect for getting unstuck quickly. I tried a few similar apps but this eventually emerged as my favorite.

My favorite crossword app

I do several crosswords a day- a true addict. I love this app. It helps me when my brain doesn't.

Best CHEAT sheet

It's my favorite app to go to when I'm stuck! Never fails me! I highly recommend it.
