    A terrible app. No crosswords are actually loaded that don't require payment.
  • by Spencer 8/29/2014
    No LA times and poor UI.
  • by David 8/26/2014
    It's great, but why does it use so much battery life? It makes my phone very warm. I don't know what, but something is very wrong.

    Why can't I download the WSJ crosswords anymore?
  • by Alex 7/5/2014
    Good access to puzzles, but the awful UI killed it for me. Very good if you can get past that, but I can't.
  • by Lisa 6/29/2014
    Decent enough app with respect to game play, but it sucks up an absurd amount of battery for what it does.
  • by User 4/17/2014
    Keeps freezing up at last letter.
  • by David 4/16/2014
    I love the game, but it makes my phone run very hot and uses at least 1% of my battery a minute. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling. No difference. Nokia 920 here

    Easy to use and a good selection of crossword puzzles.
