    Hi NYT! Please add dark mode capability. I am playing while my baby sleeps!
  • Fun daily puzzles

    I have been subscribed to this app for a few years. In addition to the daily New York Times crossword, there are several different types of daily puzzles. The interface works well. On rare occasions,the app version of the crossword isn't rendered exactly like the print version but this is noted as well as how to correctly understand the changes.
  • Puzzle review

    By Lulu Bingo
    Two of my favorite puzzles are not included digitally. They are the acrostic and the diagramless. I buy the Sunday paper just to do them. The diagramless has almost disappeared from there, too. I used to do that one on graph paper before the paper eventually provided a grid. N Hagin

    By Levcar
    I’m in love with the NYT crossword puzzles! The other games are great also but the crosswords keep me coming back for more. The “cheating” help tools are great…ahh..but the joy of completion! It’s fun to go back into the archives too. I highly recommend this app as a relaxing, addictive game.
