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!!!
Amazing Game With One Flaw
I really like this game! It tests my knowledge of facts and trivia. However, I hate, HATE, the fact that the game keeps asking me if I want to see any hints after I press on random rows and columns just to see what other questions are being asked. Keep in mind, I’m just curious what other questions are being asked and if I can solve them but no, the game takes it as if I’m stupid and unable to solve ANY. Then, a message appears asking me if I’d like a hint. It’s not a big issue, I know, but I’m tired of seeing that message EVERY SINGLE TIME. “Would you like a hint?” NO, I would not, no matter how many times you ask. I wish that there’s a way for the game to stop asking me about the hints (like tap here to no longer receive this message, kind of thing). Again, good game, but that one feature REALLY annoys me every single time I play the game!
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.
Maybe a Little TOO Easy?
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.
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
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.
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.
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
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...
Fun but wish there was a multiplayer mode :(
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 :):)
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
Ok for the most part
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
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.
Did love this app- no more
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.
