Crosswords Review

Publisher: Stand Alone, Inc–Price: $9.99–Crosswords is (obviously) a crosswords application for iDevice, that allows you to solve daily crosswords from many known US & UK newspapers, get the newest ones every day, and downloading them with one tap. What I first noticed about Crosswords is its sleek user interface: it’s not the most stylish, but it’s straight-forward and organized, which makes it easy to get things done. The number of crosswords offered each day in this application is really impressive, plus there are starter puzzles included in the app that are great for an average beginner. I also really liked the way you could just scroll to the top, and it would update the crosswords, like in Mail with your e-mails. While you are solving a crossword, you can also switch to another one very easily, as well as get hints from various websites when you get stuck. You can also sync your progress in crosswords onto the Mac version, which I haven’t tried yet. One suggestion I have for the developer is to lower the price of the app: Crosswords is great, and appeals to lots of people, but ten dollars is a really steep price. Other than that, the app is stable, intuitive, and offers a wide variety of crosswords, which is why it gets an 8.5 out of 10 from me, Thumbs up!
