  • Can’t live without it

    By Bailey in Venice
    I can hardly wait for next day’s puzzle to arrive at 10 p.m. love this!
  • Update wiped out my streak!

    By maafla1
    The latest update wiped out my streak of over 650 consecutive days completing the daily puzzle. The issue e occurred on Thursday then seemed to correct itself but has crept up again! I want this fixed! I take a lot of pride in that streak. Please help!
  • Latest update has a bug

    By NChiker5711
    Since the latest update, the app no longer registers that I’ve completed a puzzle. I get the “congratulations” message in the puzzle itself, but when I return to the main screen, the display shows the puzzle as incomplete, and it’s no longer recording streaks. IPhone 7, IOS12.3.1.
  • Version 3 crashes immediately on launch

    By DocRoss
    Update: The crashing bug was fixed! Thanks!
  • Pleasure

    By Ferrbo
    I’ve been doing the Times puzzle since I was eighteen! Don’t ask me how many puzzles, easy or perplexing, I’ve encountered in the ~54 years which followed. Simply, it’s one of the essential joys of life; no exaggeration. How many things you can count on to start a day. Coffee, cereal, the Times and the puzzle!
  • Update has made this game frustrating

    By iamjbird
    I’ve run into an issue since this new update where you will type a letter and then it will disappear even after forming the word. It’s making the game very frustrating as I keep having to go back and replace the missing letters even with auto check on and getting them correctly. It seems to be either lagging or a button may be stuck. I hope this is fixed soon.
  • Good app

    Good app
  • Needs iPad Pro update

    By Biox
    Doesn’t fill screen on the 2018 iPad Pros with Face ID. I’m often accidentally triggering something in the app because the unused black border is active (but black). After a recent app update, the statistics don’t update properly upon puzzle completion either. I have to kill the app and relaunch. Also, it would be nice to have an explanation of how the “solve rate” is calculated, because I’ve completed every puzzle I’ve started, yet my solve rate is 98.6% instead of 100%.
  • Update does not work

    By Fgghhhjhjkkiuy
    The updated version does not work correctly and crashes shortly after launching. I have been using the website rather than the app for about 2 weeks now. Please have this corrected!
