    I use Shortyz app to download puzzles automatically, they go to the same folder, then use this to solve because it works the way I want it to. Just wish arrows jumped to the beginning of the next clue on my tablet, like it does on my phone, instead of the adjacent box.

    This last update fixed all of the issues that kept me from giving it 5 stars. Most of my puzzle sources are now included. Puzzles now open as soon as they are downloaded (if you check the box). The solving experience is as good as ever. I'm an inveterate xword puzzle solver and this app is the best. Thanks.

    Was getting ready to give up my NYT subscription. And you know they were no help. Thanks!

    Great settings so I can customise it exactly the way I want. Fantastic that I can load up my favourite crossword in an app that is a "solving platform" rather than other apps that just serve up second-rate crosswords puzzles. Really well thought out and easy to use

    Update: got in touch with dev and he says he'll work on an update. Yay Kevin! Thank you! NYT changed their URLs for .puz files so until the kind dev offers a fix, manual download is in order. So sad. Hope the dev responds! Was best xword app around.

    I love this app, I've been using it for years. It's clean and simple and always works. However, the NYT recently changed its crossword subscription site and file downloads no longer work. I can't figure out a way to manually change the download page from within the app--can that be added or the file path changed to the new one?

    As another reviewer pointed out, New York Times puzzles are no longer loading. I'm sure the fault lies with the Times, but I PLEAD with the developer to find a fix. Thanks! Love the app!
