TILES Unwind while you match elements in the day’s pattern — the key is to make consecutive matches. LETTER BOXED Create words using letters around the square. Letter Boxed is another fun way to test your word-making skills. STATS Track your progress for The Crossword, Wordle and Spelling Bee. For The Crossword, monitor your average solve times, see how many puzzles you can solve in a row, and more.

  • Best crossword

    By Mel36336885
    The other games are also great!
  • Not properly tested

    By emily-kl
    I love the app, but clearly the testing of crossword puzzles is not sufficient — yesterday’s crossword displayed black boxes instead of the picture clues and the issue was never fixed. Not very fun to solve!
  • Buggy

    By Nic Naam24
    App doesn’t always keep track when a game like Connections has been completed. I complete the game and go back in later and the solution is cleared. Happens to other family members as well.
  • Buggy App

    By KrissKrossAppySause
    Special crossword clues often don’t work in the app making it very confusing. No notes added within the app to inform user of the issues.
  • Lacking

    By dirtgirl17
    NEEDS dark mode & offline games able to be downloaded. Great base for the app but lacking these basic features.
  • You
