New York Times Crossword

New York Times Crossword

Widely known as the best pen-and-paper crosswords, the New York Times crosswords have also been made available on the iPhone. Purchasing this app, subscribes you the daily crossword puzzle, as well as, a number of crosswords from previous years. What I’ve learned from this app so far, is that I’m a total dumbass, so hopefully you will fare better than I. A co-worker just informed me that they start easy on Monday and get more difficult by Sunday, which is useful knowledge, and also makes me feel a little better. The core interface is fine, tap to get the “across” word, tap again to get the “down” word. It has intelligent letter-skipping, which is nice, and a mode where you just scroll through a list, which is useful when you have cross-entry clues. I’m not a real crossword buff, but I like this app, and it does everything I would want it to do, apart from solving the puzzle for me and sending me and email telling me I’m a freakin’ genius.
