Pretty, but limited
On the plus side, the finished puzzles look great and are easy to make into PDFs to send. Unfortunately, the app is rather difficult to use for creating puzzles. It will show you words that will work for a given line; but it disregards the crossing letters. So basically you're still creating the fill the old fashioned way. But once you enter a word it won't show alternative words that could possibly work in that space. And when you have to change words, as you must inevitably do a lot, you have to erase them one letter at a time, which is time consuming. What the app needs is a way to check alternatives and a way to erase entire words at once; or at least an UNDO Button

Doesn't auto-populate crossword
It's a lot of work to put each word in a place that makes a suitable crossword. I purchased this app thinking it would auto-populate/ -create the crossword for me if I gave it a list of words. It does not. I will check back for future upgrades and use the app if then. If not, it will just sit. Too bad. I had high hopes.

Easy to Use
This is a terrific app. It's easy to use, and provides useful hints with clever clues. Highly recommended.

Excellent app
Very fine basic app for the serious xword constructor! It stimulates creativity, but doesn't construct for you. Minor bug in lookup function (returns partial words without warning). But even that forces you to keep vigilant and creative. Ease of use is pretty good, with some awkwardness. If you're serious about this art form, it is well worth the price.

Fantastic in Every Way
Really stellar app. Perfectly intuitive. Takes all the chores out of authoring and only leaves the fun parts. Well done!

Great App!
This is great! I compose cryptics, and this is a great tool. The PDFs look professional, the app is easy to use, and it saves me tons of time
