Great when it works

I use this app often. It works great when it does work. I have to erase and re-download regularly to get it to work. Now, I write the puzzles on the Notes app and the copy/paste into the crossword app. Otherwise, I might lose all the data. And that’s annoying.

I gave it three stars because when it works, it is great. If it didn’t crash so often I would give it 4 stars. It’s missing the ability to add numbers and symbols. Otherwise, great.

Amazing, Awesome App!

I am really enjoying this App. It deserves 10 stars!!
Best features:
1) perfectly generated crossword puzzle
2) very easy to enter the answer and clue
3) a variety of fonts to choose from
4) ability to use an image of your own as a background
5) ability to size the image for its placement in the puzzle ( I prefer it behind the blank squares of the puzzle grid
6) lets you choose the opacity and gradation of color for each part of the puzzle
I print out the crossword puzzles and am using them as a review for the Bible Study lesson I am teaching, and my students are really enjoying learning in such a fun way!

No! Terrible! It's a sham!!

Very misleading. You cannot make a decent puzzle. After submitting my crossword puzzle, that took a lot of time, this app crashed. I cannot even open the app I paid for to get all the information I just worked on! Ive lost everything. Money, time and all my info. Don't invest in this app!
An hour later I still cannot open the app I paid for!!!! I wish I could at least open it to get my information. Or I cannot get into the app to try a different puzzle. This company is a sham!
