★★★★★ by Constance L. Many of the quotations I had never heard before, but were very interesting. I liked that the different levels of difficulty were clearly indicated as well. One of my favorite features was the ability to get a "Hint", as I am just getting into these puzzles. The rest of the series is on my agenda, as I complete this book. They are reasonably priced, and you can repeat them by recalling them from your archives. All over evaluation: GREAT!

★★★★★ by N.W. These cryptograms are excellent and interesting. They have chosen a wide variety of subjects and individuals for their puzzles which keeps coming back for more.

★★★★★ by E.M.M. This is the best cryptogram app ever. The puzzles are organized by topic. There are stars next to each, indicating the degree of difficulty. The puzzle has the letter count under each square, giving you another way to figure out which letter to use. You can turn that feature off. When you enter a letter, all occurrences are filled in for you. Also when you tap on a blank, it turns to yellow and all places where that letter would appear are also yellow. Also, when you enter a letter the next letter in the word is highlighted so you don't have to tap it. Of course, you can jump around in the puzzle if you want. Changing a letter also changes the letter every place that occurs. You can get a hint if you need it. Highly recommended and addictive.

Advanced play features include letter frequencies, multi-level undo and hints. Three difficulty levels will challenge beginners and seasoned players alike, Share the results with your puzzling friends with a single tap via email, Facebook or Twitter.

    Needs a way to check accuracy. Also, couldn't you put more puzzles out there? All you need is a book of Bartlett's quotations and a keyboard to put in an endless supply of puzzles. I've done them all 3 times through and need new ones. Oh, and a few more by women would be nice!
