Good interface, difficult puzzles
Interface and graphics are great, nice to be able to navigate by either keyboard or mouse. Puzzles are quite difficult - haven't finished a single one successfully yet. Part of the problem is the clues are very vague, and there are a lot of multiple-word clues that are not specified as such, so you never know if the solution is one word, two words, a phrase, or an entire sentence. Some of the clues repeat across puzzles. Names of the puzzles don't seem to indicate any sort of theme or relation to the puzzle clues or answers. Good options such as clear errors, get hints, reveal letter/clue, etc.
Good to sit down and noodle at for a while, but not really that satisfying if you can't solve the puzzles.
Misrepresentation, bait and switch
I worried for months about spending $10 for the Crosswords paid program for my iPhone 4. I finally committed to the expenditure when they offered me syncing of my work onto my computer, where I could continue my puzzles. In attempting to set up syncing, after several hours of work, I suspected something was wrong. Boy, was there! The Crosswords program does NOT sync with your computer. You cannot coordinate your puzzles with this program. It turns out you must buy a SECOND program for $20, and then those two programs can supposedly link. I thought $10 was a lot, but after the fact, this company believes that that is only a good start for expenses.
Don't believe the advertising. Plan on buying everything. I'm very unhappy and have found StandAlone Inc to be disreputable.
Where is the "Hint" button, etc.?
These puzzles are good but very, very hard & I am an expert crossword puzzle solver--I do them all the time & know a lot of obscure clues that are used but some of these are ridiculously hard! I have one question--I just downloaded this app so where do I find the hint button, clues button, erase error button,etc. I only see the puzzle with NO options on it! Thanks!
They changed it.
I used to be able to see the numbers in the squares; now I can't without a magnifying glass. Also, your answers now appear in a light grayed-out effect. It was nice to be able to do the NY Times crossword on the computer, but I give up now. I'm not completely blind; my vision isn't the best, but I can read normal type just fine with glasses. This app on my 11" Windows just isn't working for me. There is a "zoom" function, but it only seems to make the app screen wider; the numbers do not become any easier to read. Just too frustrating.
