  • Great game/ but… May 11, 2021

    By Sophiasgrace
    I don’t usually write reviews but in this case decided I should because the game is great. It’s really good for me because my brain is busy and it helps me to keep my mind clear. Only one complaint really, it asks you to download other games and invite players in return for coins and then once that is done it never gives you the coins. It only allows a certain number of videos to be watched in exchange for coins a day and then you have to wait hours, which I’m sure is a tactic to make you buy coins with your own money but watching ads is a form of currency for app makers so I don’t feel bad for not giving over my actual money. What I do instead is just stop playing for the night 😕. It’s whatever, but if those things were improved, cuz I’ll watch all the videos they can give me, I’d give it a five. Puzzles are fun, challenging but not impossible!
  • Maybe a Little TOO Easy? Dec 27, 2020

    By Bradgamester
    I’ve been playing with this app a LOT during the pandemic and am grateful for the distraction it has provided me. It works well on my iPad, and dealing with the ads has taught me patience, especially since the game is free. I like the combination of thematic and mini-puzzles, and I especially enjoy the competitions between players and the chance to earn points through these inter-player matches. It’s just one more weird way of bringing people “together” during these difficult times. My only issue is with the puzzles themselves. They are seldom challenging; rather, the constant re-use of the same words (I will NEVER eat an Oreo cookie again!) and the blatant ease of some clues - “_____ the door (rhymes with ‘hut’)” - can make the game rather dull, especially when competing and doing many puzzles at once. I realize this is a family game and that I wasn’t promised the Sunday Times crossword! Still, we are blessed with millions of words and names, and I feel like only the tiniest percentage of them are being used and constantly rearranged to give the puzzle-makers a break. Sorry about the quibble (hey, THAT’S a word you could use!!!)
  • I just wanted a crossword. Apr 15, 2020

    By WinkGoodfellow
    This came up as a possibility for a crossword app, which I’ve been wanting. I opened the first one, typed in a word... and letters were spat across the rest of the puzzle. It told me I could turn it off in the menu, so I exited... and it wanted me to open the free “mini” puzzle for the day. I had to do that before going to the menu. I went back, typed, and when I made a mistake, it popped up something telling me I could see all my mistakes. No. And then it popped something up telling me I could skip a word for free if I was stuck. I wasn’t stuck, I had just typed the wrong letter a couple of times. Halfway through a word, it popped up a box saying I could get “coins” if I let the app send me notifications. Then I finished the puzzle, and it told me that I could finish a puzzle every day for a streak and get something or other. I just wanted to do a crossword puzzle. Nothing fancy, just fill in the words with my wits. The puzzle was pretty easy, and there was just too much in the way.
  • Not terrible, but not precise enough for me Apr 5, 2020

    By MontanaCari
    1. There are too many clues and/or answers that are vague, incorrect, or culturally specific (Britain, India, America?). (e.g. One clue asked for a 5-letter words that was “part of a cowboy’s boots.” The answer was “spurs.” Except spurs aren’t part of a boot, they are a separate device affixed TO a boot.) (e.g. Another clue asked for the leading car in a race. The answer was “polecar”... which I assume is the term in England, but in the U.S. we call it a “pacecar”, neither word is right or wrong, but shouldn’t the clue allow for only one answer? 2. The misspellings! Holy moly! Almost one per game. ‘Ema’ Stone wouldn’t be happy about that. 3. The repetition of clues and answers from one puzzle to the next is too high. 4. The game has way too many ads. There’s one after every. single. game. And they’re all the same. 5. The amount of coins earned compared to how much a booster or clue costs is a little ridiculous. One booster would require me to watch an additional four (4) ads, which aren’t even always available.
  • Improvements needed!! Sep 30, 2020

    By Dee052175
    The app itself is ok. I have had only a few puzzles that have had an issue. (Letters I type not showing leaving box blank) I’ve played for a few weeks now and majority of the puzzles have had the same clues/words. (I have had the word era in nearly every puzzle! Several other ones as well) Otherwise the game itself is ok. Let’s talk about coins....watch a video you get 5 coins but then have to wait 2 hrs before you can watch another one. Daily gift...so far all I have gotten is 1 coin in my box. Letters and see wrong options cost 10-20 coins. See the problem!?!? Cost of “helpers” needs to be less or rewards need to be higher and there needs to be more ways to quickly earn coins. I plan to give this app a little longer and see if there are any improvements worth continuing with this app.. if so, I’ll come back and update my review. If not, well, I’ll have to delete this app and look for a new crossword app.

    I just starting doing crosswords on your app and so far really like it!!! I get more double the daily puzzles and different types of crosswords. I think I’m getting more points for my wins here too. I started doing Crosswords With Friends and just had too many problems with them, not enough new puzzles and not receiving any points I should get for playing the games. I had played all of their games, most of them twice. I would be playing in a weekly tournament and play a game and not get any points towards the tournament. Their answer was they were trying to work out the problems. I was paying them for coins to play and they didn’t offer me anything for their problems that were costing me winning the tournaments and getting coins to continue playing games. I’m really enjoying all the different puzzles on here!!!

    Clearly, I do really DO enjoy these crosswords,with caveats. First, the system produces its own typos and/or locks my phone, thus a restart. Second, when you earn tokens the system sometimes arbitrarily subtracts tokens; Sometimes it locks me out of daily competition, causing a day's loss!! Third, errors in defs. COBRA not ASP on tomb walls!! Far too many application ADS, its aggravating! Also prgm. drastically cuts the # of games one can play, if one 'opts out' of Tournament play option![?!] 🤬

    Ads, ads, ads, and guess what! More ads. This game is full of adds that will very quickly work your nerves. I get that app producers have to generate revenue and they use ads to help do so, but i mean come on. The number of ads here is ridiculous. Plus the game is not free. Its free to start, but you will quickly run out of coins and find that every puzzle costs coins, thus if you want to play them you have to buy coins or watch ads. Even if you buy coins you still cant get rid of the ads
  • Daily crossword Sep 25, 2020

    By Craftybirdchase
    Love a good crossword. DC is really stingy about the coins they award in comparison to what they charge you for the help buttons and extra puzzles that want you to pay to play them. The commands are really sketchy when trying to correct a word and jumps all over the place and changes correct answers while you're trying to correct a answer. My biggest complaint is the location of the help buttons are too easily to press by accident when typing. Nothing burns me more than wasting 20 coins on a mini puzzle that I'm about to complete when my thumbs graze the help button. The coins are too hard to earn to be wasted in such a manner when I suspect those buttons are placed there intentionally for that very reason. I understand that the programmers need to make money but this doesn't make me want to buy anything from this app since I keep feeling cheated out of my coins. Also get a bigger vocabulary, tired of all the puzzles having most of the same words. Thank you for all your hard work, but there is room for improvement. JURKILLA

    Used to enjoy. Suddenly, in the past few days, there are no more puzzles available! Blank screen, except for my stars and available points. Not even a message about a glitch, a "fix" underway, or a refund!! Really annoying. I only gave it two stars because of padt performance and entwrtainment value. If it still worked, I would give it 3 or 4.
  • Jan 15, 2022

    By Virginia Cole
    I enjoy doing these puzzles but sometimes the screens gets weird and looks like some abstract lines and is unreadable. I usually have to wait hours before I can go back to it. I get really aggravated when the picture gets weird. Especially if I am playing some kind of contest and I cannot play because the picture has gone wonky

    By Christopher Schalk
    Good game. I like that you can turn on a hint protection setting so you don't accidentally use hints. This was the whole reason I uninstalled crosswords with friends. But then in a recent update, they took away all the hints you had saved up, and now prize hints only last the day; you can't save them up. What's next, take away all the coins you've saved and charge real money to buy them back?

    I'm having to change this from a 5 star to a 1 star. I had this and it somehow got deleted. I downloaded it again and lost everything including the package I had just ordered for $54. I wrote to you almost a month ago about this and you said you would get back to me, a week later you asked for a receipt, I sent it to you and you never answered back, every time I ask you if you are doing something you just respond with " we got your message and will be back to you shortly". I want my money back!!
  • Did love this app- no more May 3, 2021

    By Sschshdxudhdbsusbfbsjdb
    Loved this app until recently. Used to be able to watch quite a few ads in order to receive coins. This was great because when I got stumped this enabled me to choose the option for answers or letters to help solve. I would rather watch ads than go to “cheating” websites that have answers for free. Unfortunately, things have changed and I am only able to watch one ad which gives 5 coins. You need 10 coins for most help clues. When I go to watch another ad for 5 more coins, I am now told I have to wait well over an hour before I can watch an ad to receive 5 more coins. Ridiculous! If the point behind offering the coins is to make people watch ads, why would they make you wait well over an hour now? I have actually watched ads and downloaded games from them. Oh well. I am now deleting this app off my screen and have found other crossword games that do not do what this has chosen to do. Lost a customer that has purchased off this app in the past and downloaded from the ads.

    By Betsy Pacino
    This app needs to get it together, some of the ads don't work correctly and knock me completely out of the current cw puzzle, Also, I go to a free cw puzzle, only to have it pop up to say that it takes 20 coins to open... wth, DTC???
  • Ok for the most part Oct 10, 2020

    By Tintin 2011
    I’ve been using this app for the past few months and I have really been enjoying it. As of late however (the last month or so) the “see wrong” button keeps turning on by itself and each time my total stars drop by 20 when I hadn’t even asked for this. I had lost over 100 stars when I finally looked into the settings and realized that by some mysterious ways the option to confirm hint use was unchecked when I knew I had checked it initially when I downloaded the app. I checked it again and things were fine for a few days until again “see wrong” started turning on by itself each time I started a new puzzle. I went to the settings immediately and confirmed it was in fact checked. I’m not sure if this is on purpose or if there is a glitch in this app, but either way the experience became frustrating enough that I just uninstalled the app, and I’ll be looking for another crossword puzzle app in the App Store.
  • Not For Me Jul 31, 2019

    By ZambotTheShadow
    I liked this app but I don’t like the mini crosswords they have and that’s basically ALL they have. Some of the stuff that’s supposed to help you figure it out was really stupid, for example mine said “because”. Like how is that supposed to help me figure out a word that’s 8 letters down?! Because. That’s it. There were no other hints. Plus, getting from across to down was annoying! They don’t have it where you can just flip to one or the other, you had to hit the arrow until it changed from across to down (or vice versa) by itself. Lastly, I had it where it was supposed to show me when I words wrong but after doing one puzzle that stopped working even though I had it turned on still. I only had this app installed like 30 minutes before uninstalling it because all of that happened that fast. This app isn't for me. If you like “mini” crosswords and being timed while doing crosswords then you might enjoy this app. I didn’t and I wouldn’t recommend it.

  • Great app, tons of fun-only one complaint Jul 4, 2020

    By kbtank
    I used to avoid crosswords and similar games because I always felt like I didn’t have the vocab knowledge to make it any fun - this game has totally brought me around to truly enjoying this game. There are mini puzzles which are small and quick which definitely boost your confidence if you’re intimidated by the big puzzles. For the medium-larger puzzles I have had to do some google searches and such, but it’s fun to learn new things and also to work on beating my time so I can get a 2-3 star rating. Yes, there are ads and I don’t mind watching them (which can give you coins to use towards helpful features) and I’ve even found a couple other games to enjoy due to them - HOWEVER if I have turned off the volume feature and even have my phone on vibrate that means I shouldn’t have to worry about ads! So far, all the ads are “mute-able” except for one, but this still annoys the crap out of me. TL/DR: Game has different sized puzzles for all levels and is a lot of fun. Only complaint is noisy ads (even with volume off feature).
  • Great game/ but… May 11, 2021

    By Sophiasgrace
    I don’t usually write reviews but in this case decided I should because the game is great. It’s really good for me because my brain is busy and it helps me to keep my mind clear. Only one complaint really, it asks you to download other games and invite players in return for coins and then once that is done it never gives you the coins. It only allows a certain number of videos to be watched in exchange for coins a day and then you have to wait hours, which I’m sure is a tactic to make you buy coins with your own money but watching ads is a form of currency for app makers so I don’t feel bad for not giving over my actual money. What I do instead is just stop playing for the night 😕. It’s whatever, but if those things were improved, cuz I’ll watch all the videos they can give me, I’d give it a five. Puzzles are fun, challenging but not impossible!

    Haven't been playing for long but so far I'm enjoying the game. Some of the puzzles are pretty easy, others will make you think some. The only thing negative I would say is that it does seem to be a bit of a money grab as you need 20 coins to show wrong letters, but can only earn 5 watching videos for 30sec. Plus the "cost" of each puzzle. Unless you want to watch another 30sec video. So far that's my only complaint. If anything pops up I'll update after I've played for a bit.
  • Ads Mar 12, 2020

    By Kevshalauren
    I totally understand their need for ads, as nearly every app has them, but I get s long ad at the start and finish of every single puzzle. Also, considering you only receive one coin for completing a puzzle you end up having to watch many more ads if you want or need boosters complete a game. if you can’t seem to figure out which answer you got incorrect, you’re stuck watching more ads or buying coins to reveal which letters are incorrect. To my knowledge there’s not a way to pay to remove at least the ads at the beginning and end of each puzzle, which I would happily pay to do so as I love this game. Anyway, this is just basically a long way of saying there’s too many ads. It’s a great game and I love it otherwise.

    It's OK. There are many ads and the letters in the puzzles sometimes seem to change to force you to spend coins to see where they have changed. But overall it is a good app.
  • Ads cause crashing Jul 8, 2021

    By Tiefly
    The puzzles are great, the variety each day keeps your interest, I’ve accepted that you will watch a 30-second ad pretty much before and after everything you do, but lately, those apps have stopped allowing me to return to the puzzle. The exit buttons either don’t appear, the screen might go blank, but either way, it just sits there. Restarting the puzzle app usually erases the bonus you were trying to get by watching the ad in the first place, but since you’re starting again, you have to watch another ad. Some ads seem to cause this more than others. It’s kind of frustrating. On those times, I just skip this and move onto a different game.

    Great crosswords! Only drawback honestly is the sheer number of ads but thats usually the price of a free game. Otherwise I like the variety of subjects and having themed crosswords

    I like doing crossword puzzles and other kinds of puzzles. They do tend to get difficult at times but if you know trivia, you can do them pretty well.
  • Maybe a Little TOO Easy? Dec 27, 2020

    By Bradgamester
    I’ve been playing with this app a LOT during the pandemic and am grateful for the distraction it has provided me. It works well on my iPad, and dealing with the ads has taught me patience, especially since the game is free. I like the combination of thematic and mini-puzzles, and I especially enjoy the competitions between players and the chance to earn points through these inter-player matches. It’s just one more weird way of bringing people “together” during these difficult times. My only issue is with the puzzles themselves. They are seldom challenging; rather, the constant re-use of the same words (I will NEVER eat an Oreo cookie again!) and the blatant ease of some clues - “_____ the door (rhymes with ‘hut’)” - can make the game rather dull, especially when competing and doing many puzzles at once. I realize this is a family game and that I wasn’t promised the Sunday Times crossword! Still, we are blessed with millions of words and names, and I feel like only the tiniest percentage of them are being used and constantly rearranged to give the puzzle-makers a break. Sorry about the quibble (hey, THAT’S a word you could use!!!)
  • I just wanted a crossword. Apr 15, 2020

    By WinkGoodfellow
    This came up as a possibility for a crossword app, which I’ve been wanting. I opened the first one, typed in a word... and letters were spat across the rest of the puzzle. It told me I could turn it off in the menu, so I exited... and it wanted me to open the free “mini” puzzle for the day. I had to do that before going to the menu. I went back, typed, and when I made a mistake, it popped up something telling me I could see all my mistakes. No. And then it popped something up telling me I could skip a word for free if I was stuck. I wasn’t stuck, I had just typed the wrong letter a couple of times. Halfway through a word, it popped up a box saying I could get “coins” if I let the app send me notifications. Then I finished the puzzle, and it told me that I could finish a puzzle every day for a streak and get something or other. I just wanted to do a crossword puzzle. Nothing fancy, just fill in the words with my wits. The puzzle was pretty easy, and there was just too much in the way.
  • Not terrible, but not precise enough for me Apr 5, 2020

    By MontanaCari
    1. There are too many clues and/or answers that are vague, incorrect, or culturally specific (Britain, India, America?). (e.g. One clue asked for a 5-letter words that was “part of a cowboy’s boots.” The answer was “spurs.” Except spurs aren’t part of a boot, they are a separate device affixed TO a boot.) (e.g. Another clue asked for the leading car in a race. The answer was “polecar”... which I assume is the term in England, but in the U.S. we call it a “pacecar”, neither word is right or wrong, but shouldn’t the clue allow for only one answer? 2. The misspellings! Holy moly! Almost one per game. ‘Ema’ Stone wouldn’t be happy about that. 3. The repetition of clues and answers from one puzzle to the next is too high. 4. The game has way too many ads. There’s one after every. single. game. And they’re all the same. 5. The amount of coins earned compared to how much a booster or clue costs is a little ridiculous. One booster would require me to watch an additional four (4) ads, which aren’t even always available.
  • Improvements needed!! Sep 30, 2020

    By Dee052175
    The app itself is ok. I have had only a few puzzles that have had an issue. (Letters I type not showing leaving box blank) I’ve played for a few weeks now and majority of the puzzles have had the same clues/words. (I have had the word era in nearly every puzzle! Several other ones as well) Otherwise the game itself is ok. Let’s talk about coins....watch a video you get 5 coins but then have to wait 2 hrs before you can watch another one. Daily gift...so far all I have gotten is 1 coin in my box. Letters and see wrong options cost 10-20 coins. See the problem!?!? Cost of “helpers” needs to be less or rewards need to be higher and there needs to be more ways to quickly earn coins. I plan to give this app a little longer and see if there are any improvements worth continuing with this app.. if so, I’ll come back and update my review. If not, well, I’ll have to delete this app and look for a new crossword app.
  • Ads are intrusive, clues repetitive May 14, 2021

    By band_nerd789
    I’ve done many crossword puzzles, and I know there are somewhat “standard” clues for a given answer, but when “ale,” “Oreo,” “HBO” “Els” to name a few are in every other puzzle...then it’s not a fun challenge anymore, it’s a grind. The ads. The. ADS. I understand they’re necessary, particularly on free apps, in order for the devs to make money. But there’s no discretion as to quality, bugs, etc. There isn’t even variety. I played for 10 minutes the other day and got the same diet pill ad five times in a row. I won’t even get into why these types of ads are harmful to people recovering from eating disorders, or that dubious health claims shouldn’t be promoted in any space. Why the same ad so many times in a row? I didn’t click the first time, I won’t click the second time, I’m still not curious the third time. By the fifth time, I’m annoyed. My phone’s storage is full. Guess it’s time to let some apps go...
  • Updated review Dec 15, 2017

    By PyromamaK
    The latest annoying thing is I have 2 games in progress from several months ago. If I click one it takes me to the correct puzzle but then freezes. The puzzle is shown with no clues anyway. No matter how many times I’ve tried going back to those 2 specific dates the game freezes or there’s a black screen. Please fix! Could’ve been 5 starts but...I agree with most reviews that the coin system is severely lacking. Overall a great game but 2 things I have a real problem with: one is the volume when doing the bonus packs for instance. I have the sound turned off in the controls but when an ad plays the volume is ON which is not great if you’re sitting in a waiting room for example, plus it’s just downright annoying in the first place. Second is the small ads at the bottom of puzzles. I have epilepsy and the ads blinked and flashed so rapidly I thought I was going to have a seizure. If it happens again I will uninstall the game.
  • Fun but wish there was a multiplayer mode :( Mar 11, 2020

    By sganga5
    I love this app and have had it for a few months now, however, i wish one of the new updates would include a multiplayer mode instead of just bug fixes :/. My boyfriend and I play it together, but only if we are visiting one another, and it’s harder to do over the phone, so I wish there was a way we could do them together instead of having to complete two separate puzzles, both individually on our phones instead of completing one puzzle together. This is one big factor that makes me consider other crossword apps, because we kept doing them together when we got to see each other in person but we spend more months apart then together, so it’s a fun way to stay connected even if we are hundreds of miles apart. please consider adding this option on one of the next updates! I think it would make the app more popular as well :):)

  • A fun game when you’re stuck in the house Apr 23, 2020

    By Cheesy mcnito
    I’ve been playing g this for a while and I enjoy it, but it reuses the same clues over and over, so it’s not like you get all new puzzles each day. A lot of the words just keep appearing in every other crossword. I have an issue with the amount of coins it costs to get a hint or see a mistake, especially since you are only awarded one coin for each completed puzzle. The worst part is, they will randomly deduct coins , even when I don’t use any hints. I understand deducting them when you use a hint, but the creators of the App will randomly deduct 10 coins for no reason. There’s a place within the App to reach out if you have questions or issues, which I did, but I never heard back. My advise is to accumulate as many coins as you can by watching the annoying ads. It’s the only way to ensure you keep a stockpile for when you need them.

    By Olivia Anders
    It seemed like a fun game from the app, but the amount of adds that it keeps on throwing at you despite already having to watch ads to unlock archived or challenge puzzles is too high.
  • Jan 15, 2022

    By Mav Div
    Ads, ads, ads, and guess what! More ads. This game is full of adds that will very quickly work your nerves. I get that app producers have to generate revenue and they use ads to help do so, but i mean come on. The number of ads here is ridiculous. Plus the game is not free. Its free to start, but you will quickly run out of coins and find that every puzzle costs coins, thus if you want to play them you have to buy coins or watch ads. Even if you buy coins you still cant get rid of the ads
  • Daily crossword Sep 25, 2020

    By Craftybirdchase
    Love a good crossword. DC is really stingy about the coins they award in comparison to what they charge you for the help buttons and extra puzzles that want you to pay to play them. The commands are really sketchy when trying to correct a word and jumps all over the place and changes correct answers while you're trying to correct a answer. My biggest complaint is the location of the help buttons are too easily to press by accident when typing. Nothing burns me more than wasting 20 coins on a mini puzzle that I'm about to complete when my thumbs graze the help button. The coins are too hard to earn to be wasted in such a manner when I suspect those buttons are placed there intentionally for that very reason. I understand that the programmers need to make money but this doesn't make me want to buy anything from this app since I keep feeling cheated out of my coins. Also get a bigger vocabulary, tired of all the puzzles having most of the same words. Thank you for all your hard work, but there is room for improvement. JURKILLA

    Used to enjoy. Suddenly, in the past few days, there are no more puzzles available! Blank screen, except for my stars and available points. Not even a message about a glitch, a "fix" underway, or a refund!! Really annoying. I only gave it two stars because of padt performance and entwrtainment value. If it still worked, I would give it 3 or 4.

    I enjoy doing these puzzles but sometimes the screens gets weird and looks like some abstract lines and is unreadable. I usually have to wait hours before I can go back to it. I get really aggravated when the picture gets weird. Especially if I am playing some kind of contest and I cannot play because the picture has gone wonky
  • Jan 9, 2022

    By Christopher Schalk
    Good game. I like that you can turn on a hint protection setting so you don't accidentally use hints. This was the whole reason I uninstalled crosswords with friends. But then in a recent update, they took away all the hints you had saved up, and now prize hints only last the day; you can't save them up. What's next, take away all the coins you've saved and charge real money to buy them back?

    This app needs to get it together, some of the ads don't work correctly and knock me completely out of the current cw puzzle, Also, I go to a free cw puzzle, only to have it pop up to say that it takes 20 coins to open... wth, DTC???
  • Ok for the most part Oct 10, 2020

    By Tintin 2011
    I’ve been using this app for the past few months and I have really been enjoying it. As of late however (the last month or so) the “see wrong” button keeps turning on by itself and each time my total stars drop by 20 when I hadn’t even asked for this. I had lost over 100 stars when I finally looked into the settings and realized that by some mysterious ways the option to confirm hint use was unchecked when I knew I had checked it initially when I downloaded the app. I checked it again and things were fine for a few days until again “see wrong” started turning on by itself each time I started a new puzzle. I went to the settings immediately and confirmed it was in fact checked. I’m not sure if this is on purpose or if there is a glitch in this app, but either way the experience became frustrating enough that I just uninstalled the app, and I’ll be looking for another crossword puzzle app in the App Store.
  • Not For Me Jul 31, 2019

    By ZambotTheShadow
    I liked this app but I don’t like the mini crosswords they have and that’s basically ALL they have. Some of the stuff that’s supposed to help you figure it out was really stupid, for example mine said “because”. Like how is that supposed to help me figure out a word that’s 8 letters down?! Because. That’s it. There were no other hints. Plus, getting from across to down was annoying! They don’t have it where you can just flip to one or the other, you had to hit the arrow until it changed from across to down (or vice versa) by itself. Lastly, I had it where it was supposed to show me when I words wrong but after doing one puzzle that stopped working even though I had it turned on still. I only had this app installed like 30 minutes before uninstalling it because all of that happened that fast. This app isn't for me. If you like “mini” crosswords and being timed while doing crosswords then you might enjoy this app. I didn’t and I wouldn’t recommend it.
  • Bad Puzzles, Annoying Bugs Jul 26, 2020

    By 4Apple2Jacks
    Crossword fans look elsewhere. Repetitive clues game after game, every game has Mika Kunis, Ale, Ooh, Aah, IPA, Game of Thrones clues, sci-fi clues, people and abbreviations you’ve never heard of. Tons and tons of clues are abbreviations or stupid phrases like “I see” or “is at” or “at no”. Sometimes half the puzzle is like this. Not true crossword puzzles. Very badly done. The bugs are almost all associated with ads. You have to watch a 30 second ad before AND after each puzzle! They get stuck, volume blares even if you have volume off, and they are for very weird apps where pleasant games have been paired with drowning bears or women about to be attacked by viscious dogs - it’s like a single teenager obsessed with his Mika Kunis/Sci-fi world had to come up with 300 tiny crossword puzzles and he gave up trying to think up new clues, or exhausted his vocab. and started looking things up. Really bad. Don’t waste your time.
  • Would’ve been 4* but... Jan 24, 2018

    By Anna Tru
    I used this app every night as my chill out from a long day of workin at a prison. I absolutely love it. Some words are challenging. Some are easy. It’s a good balance. Also some people on here complain about coins. But compared to other apps, you get more for your efforts. But I had a Situation where I accidentally made a purchase. Therein is where this app gets 2*. I had used the help button options a few times. It sends you to your email app to send an email. Then you’ll get an automatic response saying someone will get back you (typically within 24 hours) and within less than 2 hours I got a personal response with the next steps to help my situation. Well this time I didn’t get that second response. It has been 3 days and I don’t dare play the app. I was able to resolve the situation, but not through this app, through Apple iTunes or something like that.

    I'm having to change this from a 5 star to a 1 star. I had this and it somehow got deleted. I downloaded it again and lost everything including the package I had just ordered for $54. I wrote to you almost a month ago about this and you said you would get back to me, a week later you asked for a receipt, I sent it to you and you never answered back, every time I ask you if you are doing something you just respond with " we got your message and will be back to you shortly". I want my money back!!
  • Did love this app- no more May 3, 2021

    By Sschshdxudhdbsusbfbsjdb
    Loved this app until recently. Used to be able to watch quite a few ads in order to receive coins. This was great because when I got stumped this enabled me to choose the option for answers or letters to help solve. I would rather watch ads than go to “cheating” websites that have answers for free. Unfortunately, things have changed and I am only able to watch one ad which gives 5 coins. You need 10 coins for most help clues. When I go to watch another ad for 5 more coins, I am now told I have to wait well over an hour before I can watch an ad to receive 5 more coins. Ridiculous! If the point behind offering the coins is to make people watch ads, why would they make you wait well over an hour now? I have actually watched ads and downloaded games from them. Oh well. I am now deleting this app off my screen and have found other crossword games that do not do what this has chosen to do. Lost a customer that has purchased off this app in the past and downloaded from the ads.
