1.0 out of 5 stars Yep...there's ads. March 25, 2013
Verified Purchase
I don't care how good the app is...banner ads in a supposedly paid game= ridiculous. No, it's not ads for their games either...I ran into those, too. (They're annoying enough. They pop up in the middle of the screen & you have to x them off to go any further.) The banner ad was for Paypal actually, & was a definite ad. This is not any different than their free version on Google Play. Besides a few exceptions we've gotten some really craptastic faotd's lately, but this is an all new low. Either Amazon has given us an already free app, or the developer thought they'd compensate their loss from giving it away, by putting ads in the paid version. Either way, they've ruined their rating & chances are nobody is going to want to pay money for it in the future. Good job, dev.

1.0 out of 5 stars Really? March 25, 2013
Verified Purchase
I don't care for ads either, but why don't we talk about the terrible crosswords? Am I being too much of a purist or too old school? I tried a puzzle on the beginner level. Hmm, not sure what these two words are going across. Lets see what the words are going down to help out. Oh! Wait. There are two letter words with no clues. Come to find out, that is because they are not words. These are the type of "crosswords" found on the tray liners at McDonalds. What a let down.
I also found the format awkward. The clues burried in the board and no black squares to define the word length and layout are just confusing.
This app is a great let down and will be uninstalled. I am only happy that I did not pay for it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Good in theory...but.... March 25, 2013
Verified Purchase
Free is always good. I'm a big fan of crossword puzzles, so I was pleasantly surprised to find this as the free app of the day. Download on the KF HD was quick and the game launched seamlessly. The zoom in feature was nice but the game got buggy really quick. I clicked on a tile to enter the answer-success! It even displayed that my answer was correct! But subsequent tile clickings to enter the answer did absolutely nothing. I zoomed in, thinking my fat fingers were to blame. Nada. Zilch. No keyboard popping up, no movement whatsoever. I tried to click on numerous tiles, rebooted my KF, started a new game. And nothing. No joy. I quickly deleted this app and will wait in anticipation for a better offering.

1.0 out of 5 stars ads across the bottom March 25, 2013
By JJbean
Verified Purchase
Starts out working fine, but then the ads start across the bottom of the screen. When that happens it slows down the game as it is loading new ones. Glad it was free today, because it is not worth purchasing.

1.0 out of 5 stars Paid App w/ ADS? March 25, 2013
The game itself is decent if you enjoy crosswords, only started the first few beginner levels, but enjoyment is defeated by the pop-up ads and banner ads that are displayed while playing a supposedly paid app, thankfully it was faotd, uninstalled.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing at best March 25, 2013
Verified Purchase
I love crossword puzzles but quickly became disheartened with this one. Game play was extremely awkward, as was the layout. Where you would normally have two letter words, you end up with two random letters sitting blindly beside each other. Was frustrated with the game before finishing the first one. Very disappointing.

2.0 out of 5 stars No. March 25, 2013
Verified Purchase
Just don't download this. I realize that as a reviewer I should express the pros and cons of downloading this app. All right.

Pros:
+ It's a crossword puzzle, kinda!
+ Unless you're a Kindle user, it's free on Google Play!
+ Even if you are a Kindle user, it's free today!

Cons:
- It utterly fails at being a crossword puzzle. Whereas every horizontal and vertical in square crosswords like this is supposed to result in a word, oftentimes it doesn't. Black squares do not exist and are not well replaced by "hint squares." And speaking of...
- It does not work at all on a low resolution screen. My phone has an archaic 320x480 screen. The hint squares are completely unreadable. No big deal, right? You can tap the hint square and will be able to read it. But the keyboard pops up along with it then. Once that happens, the main game screen is almost completely covered. Even on higher resolution phones like my friend's Galaxy SIII has the keyboard blocking too much of the game screen. On my tablet, though, it's not so bad.
- Despite being the free app of the day, it still manages to be a waste of money. The game has banner ads, though it's supposed to be a for-pay game. This is poor. I thought TV was pretty much the only thing these days people would put up with paying for ads.

All in all, it is just lacking as both a crossword and a paid app. There are better places to take your money - and there are better free apps, too.
