Reviews of Crossword Light

  • Quality going down

    I have used this app for several years, it was once excellent but has failed to keep up with the technology. The important fro Dropbox function has had problems for a year and their “fix” was to remove the feature. The basic import function only imports one file at a time and does not import files in .jpz format. The Browse the Web function takes you a screen for buying Newsday puzzles and you cannot bypass it.
  • Repeats

    Too many repeats to the puzzles.
  • Great app

    I love the Crossword Light app, and I use it every day.

    Developer Response

    We've got a new version coming out shortly that should address this issue. Sorry for the trouble!
