I like that u can pick the level u want to play. I've learned so many words and my vocabulary has become 10× better.

Won't go back to the puzzle after the ad half the time. An X doesn't show, no way to dismiss. It ran for 2 minutes before I just gave up. And the hard ones are too easy. Uninstalling

It would be great if there were more free puzzles. Overall, it's just like having the book, and it's fun. Love the fact it's got three levels of brain tease! Thanks!

Mostly like the game. The one thing I don't like is the word you are working on is separated from the rest of the puzzle in a little box above the keyboard. I prefer to see it in the entire puzzle.

Fun and well done. Some clues strain at the meaning. Hard puzzles not challenging enough. Not possible to save your history on-line.

Some of the words I never have seen before so that made it difficult. I also had a hard time navigating when I made a mistake.

I Enjoy Crossword Puzzles Very Much!!! I Found This Particular App When I Was Searching For Your Daily Pop Crossword Puzzle App, But I Couldn't Find It!! I Hope That Your Daily Pop Crossword Puzzle App Will Be Available Again Soon!!

Enjoy it. Like to see I can solve it. However, the medium is usually harder than the hard one?! Solve them all anyway with a hint or two ;)

Was ok at first, now it gives the wrong clues for the row you're on. Can tap the row several times, and get a different clue each time

This app keeps crashing. When I try to play, the app closes in the middle of the game and it's frustrating

Crashing problem has been fixed. Good app now! Only reason not 5 star was that it took so long to fix.

I love working Dell Crosswords. I was having trouble with the app. I couldn't get it to load. It would close. So, I just decided to uninstall and reinstall. Now, it seems to be working fine. I just found out about an update. Now we get the wrong clue without watching an advertising campaign .

I have not been able to get past the ads for 2 days because the program takes me to the Google play store when I hit the "x". Unacceptable.

I go back to 5 Stars as the problem has been fixed. And now I get my 3 Daily Puzzles to solve!! I was hoping that Penny Dell would respond and/or fix this problem. The Ap will not open. Then when it does, you answer about 6 clues and it shuts down and doesn't save your Progress. This has been a great Ap. It no longer works. It opens. But when I select Daily Puzzle it freezes

I absolutely loved this crossword game. Right up until a month ago. Now I have a very hard time getting into the game. It either just shuts down and I can't do anything or it will stop altogether and kick me out of it. I am not seeing any updates so I gave this game 1 star when it should have been 5!!!!

Constantly either freezing or crashing. It's fun when it works, despite sooo many ads, but never know anymore whether it will work. I've gone three- or four days of trying and only getting as far as trying to open a daily puzzle before it freezes, or getting one word in before it crashes.

I love the game so 5 stars. However for the last week or so it barely loads. It either freezes or shuts down completely. Sometimes it gets to The main menu and other times it won't get that far. The farthest I can get anymore is hitting daily puzzle. Then freeze or crash. It has been this way since the most recent Android update which I'm guessing is the culprit. Any ideas?

Crosswords were fine. Hated the same tic toc ad over and over again. The only way to clear it was to actually click on it. No matter how long you waited it would not clear until clicked to go to download site. Pretty piss poor trickery if you ask me. Uninstalling now.

I'm elderly and I have worked crossword puzzles since I was 17 yrs old... In an app, in newspaper and books. This Penny Dell app is the best cell phone app anywhere in my opinion. UPDATE: this app like other apps are using ads that you can't get out of. It's back and forth from the play store to back to the ad....back and forth. 😡. I leave the app totally and restart. With another ad but usually one that doesn't have the bad component. Come on Dell, y'all are better than this....or I hope so.

Going off the good reviews, I downloaded this app less than two minutes ago. Unfortunately, upon opening the app, it was quite clear to me this app was made for those who like the blocky, "Wordart" style. It's very reminiscent of 2007's Microsoft Word. I opened the Daily Puzzle no less than three times, and each time it refused to load. My phone even pulled me out of the app with a lovely "Crossword Not Working". A swift uninstall.

This is most like a regular crsswrd puzzle to me and that's why I enjoy it so much. It's very easy and I love how you can choose your level of difficulty. The only miniscule issue I have with it is that when I first open the app it will freeze and I have to close and restart it. But, to me, that's really not a big deal. That's why I gave it 5 stars.

Good but LOUD. Enjoy the game itself. But before a recent update, I could silence my phone to avoid hearing the ads. Not anymore. So I can no longer play it in public places. Terrible.

I love penny Dell. There are so many different ones to buy. There are some small cheap ones. Most are challenging. Unfortunately the daily ones do not come back when u finish them and when u buy the books you don't get the hints like u do with the 3 that some with penny Dell. U can turn on correct letter but it isn't the same as being able to get an extra hint when needed. Other than that I play on this for hours. It is just as if I had the paper books.

I just installed this app and played the first puzzle. I didn't have any problems, knew the answers, didn't need any hints, made no mistakes. Didn't learn anything new. It took maybe 20 minutes to complete. Would like there to be an option of a timer. Wasn't particularly thrilling, no bells, no whistles, no applause...just straight to the point. Subtle, quiet, non-intimidating, easy to learn for new gamers like me. No great desire to play again. But if I do, I will try a more difficult puzzle.

Games are challenging, which they should be. Ads are not intrusive, but I mute the volume when I do play. Unfortunately, this app really drains my phone's memory storage, so I often have to uninstall in order to update other apps.

I love that there is 3 levels of difficulty in the puzzles. I love that you can get 3 puzzles every day to enjoy. I don't have to devote hours & hours to the yet I still feel satisfaction when I complete the days puzzles. I switched phones & lost all my history but it doesn't affect my playing. Love it!

Absolutely fabulous , just can't put down ! Everything is even better than your crosswords on paper . I don't say that because you get help . That is a wonderful thing though . I say that because you brought back some older puzzles mixed in with mostly new puzzles . The amount of puzzles is absolutely wonderful too . I could say more , but then you'd have a million page post . You are absolutely fabulous in every way . Keep doing what you do .

Puzzles are great, better than any other free xword game. Not too many ads. Thinking about purchasing for ad free but I don't believe there's additional content with the paid version.

Fair to middlin'. Cumbersome. I prefer having all clues available for viewing. And easier ways to go across or down.

The only reason I gave it 3 stars, you can't really rate something after doing only 2 puzzles, not quite fair.

This is only for ver. 3.89 released on 3/2/21. Normally I give it 5 stars. On my SM-A21 phone ver. 389 starts and at best allows for 1 tap before it locks up. I have to use the Home button to exit the app, 1 time had to turn the phone off. Ver. 3.87 works fine on the phone. I don't have any problem with ver. 3.89 on my SM-T830 tablet or on a SM-A71 phone.

If you want something that would be easy for a 10 year old, this is the game for you. Add to that the direction for the clues being off. Part of the time the horizontal ask was for the vertical row and vice versa.

I really like this crossword puzzle game. You have to buy the packs but it is no different than buying puzzle books at the store except you can get hints and a second clue. You also get 3 free puzzles a day. You have a choice of easy, medium, or hard when purchasing. Also the adds are very limited and only appear on the free games. I recommend trying this puzzle game.

There are ads and then there are ADS. If it weren't for the plethora of ads, this would be the crossword app I would recommend to anyone. It's really very engaging otherwise. They want you to pay $15 (14.49) to remove ads. That is just too much when other apps charge a fraction of that amount. And there are so many ads that it takes away from the enjoyment. If it weren't for that, I would happily give it 5 *

I'm so excited!! I've been doing PennyDell crosswords my whole life. I've come to find a crossword app multiple times, I was so disappointed in every other one I've ever checked out. AND THEN I FOUND PENNY DELL!! 🤩 5⭐s.. 10, if I could! It does just what I want it to -be familiar, be easy to navigate, don't irritate me & don't jam my phone up. Hello perfect 😍🥰 Thank you, Penny Dell!

Played one puzzle and it was fun! But if it becomes a coin or purchase this or that, I'm done!! . I'd rather see lots of ads. Edit: The time has come. I am now at the time that I must pay to play. I knew it would come. I'm done. And I paid $16.99 for no-ads!! Is it fair to pay $16.99 to only play one game a day(the Daily Puzzle)? What a racket!!!

I don't mind the ads but I mind the fact that the close button is often hard to find and in addition more often than not takes you to the Play Store instead of closing the ad and taking you to the puzzle.

Not nearly as good as the Dell Crossword books I used to buy. The hard puzzles are easy (and full of outdated clues like "skater Fleming") and the constant ads have a tendency to try to auto-load instead of closing.

It is a great game that has no ads. They will promote their crosswords however not often, when prompted you have the option to by another of puzzles for a few dollars. You get 3 free puzzles a day I find that keeps me busy 🥰

I love this puzzle game. You can choose your difficulty level and the size of the entire board. Truly custom crossword for you. I have never had a problem with the app, even crossing over from IPhone to Samsung FOLD. If you remotely like crossword puzzles, like waiting in the waiting room for getting your car new tires or something, this is a nice reprieve and it really makes the time fly. Try this app, you'll not regret it, you'll actually LOVE it.

I have purchased the Penny Dell Variety Puzzles book for years. I love the daily challenges provided by Penny Dell Crosswords on my app! I complete the Easy level fairly quickly as part of my morning routine to wake up, along with a sudoku & others. To stretch my mind as the day continues, when time allows, I return to complete Medium... then Hard. Sometimes I struggle a little more with those, but I am learning so much! Thank you, Penny Dell!

Relaxing. Gives you daily puzzles (easy medium and hard) but you can only pick 1 per day. 1 book of puzzles from their library. Otherwise you have to pay for more. I like the fact you dont need coins to find wrong letters and you have option to pick an alternate clue. I love crosswords.

Its fine as crosswords go but it doesn't move to the next clue logically, for example when I finish 1 across it may jump to 4 down instead of going to the next 'across' clue.

I have enjoyed this app every day for several years. I would like to continue to work the puzzles. However, today, an ad for a totally inappropriate web site showed up while I was loading the puzzles. The web site was for a slots game that involved "erasing" the clothing from an already scantily clad female. Not only is this ad offensive to me as a woman, it is concerning to me as a parent of older children who also have enjoyed this Penny Dell Crossword app. I will delete the app. Too bad.

Great App as far as crossword types go. It gives options of showing mistakes and getting a hint (letter or word). You can easily choose which space to place letter in and/or across or down. It also gives you option of an alternate clue. I just wish it contained some of their word game type puzzles. It definitely needs more free puzzles.

This app gives you three levels to choose from. It is also easy to work on a puzzle, and the SHOW ERRORS button is FREE. I use to use another cw puzzle app and their SHOW ERRORS button always cost an additional fee just to turn it on. I also like the variety of puzzles you can choose from.

Great fun, as long as you pay for a crossword. The free crosswords force you to watch an annoyingly long ad every time you pull one up to work on it. Plus, you have to watch a second ad if you want the crossword to show your errors. That's 2 long ads, every time you work on the crossword.

Not sure what time the cut off is for the daily puzzle but it appears there are tiered cut off times. I finished the 1st puzzle in the AM and attempted to finish the remaining puzzles but the were completed using previously completed puzzles. It's free so that is expected.

Better than, most of the other crossword puzzles online or in-app. But I've been a fan of Penny Dell for years now have paperbacks as well as the app, So I get my puzzle fix wherever I go. I play several times in a day, should have a way to win great prizes or gift cards something also have contest or tournaments. Just an FYI for you to chew on. Overall love PennyDell Crossword puzzles.

Penny Dell Crosswords has been around for a long time. I get a very relaxed feeling when I play. Not too hard, and not too easy! They are just right for me. Smooth moves.

I have zero problems with ads when I choose not to pay for the ad free version. However I do have a problem with being slammed with an add 6 times in the matter of 2 minutes. That won't get me to purchase, that will get me to uninstall. And I'm doing exactly that.

It's my attempt to keep my senior's brain active. I like the immediate feedback of a wrong letter in red. It would be fun to be given a score (points for right letters, negative points for wrong guesses).

I have used Dell Penny for over a year and have never had a problem using it. There is a large selection of puzzle books to purchase and they are reasonably priced.

Actual honest to goodness crossword puzzles! Just like their booklets you can buy at the store. Thank you Penny Dell!

Yet another poorly constructed crossword app. Littered with clues that have no association with the word they are looking for. The simpler puzzles are OK, but the intermediate and advanced puzzles are almost impossible to finish without hints because the clues are so bad. I am extremely unhappy I purchased more puzzles because the app is SO BAD, it's no fun. I uninstalled it because it's not worth my time. **** UPDATE **** Well, I cliked on review for YOUR app, so your response is pretty lame. Just becuase you claim to be the best, doesnt make it so. Your app is riddled with mistakes and bad clues and your arrogant attitude makes it all the worse. I deducted a star for your response.

Subscribed to variety of penny puzzle mags over time. The clues in the easy puzzles here are more like medium in mags. Other than that, appears okay so far.

Really enjoyed the app for a while but can't get over one thing. If I click on any of the ads, the ad starts over. And then it never registers that I watched it so I have to watch it again. Uninstalling, other crossword apps are cheaper to stop ads and ads aren't so often.

A very fun, enjoyable and addictive puzzle app. They give you a variety to choose from, along with in-app purchases which are quite affordable. If you enjoy doing crosswords as much as I do, but you don't have the money to spend, this app is a must to have in your library.

If you want to play then you have to buy outrageously priced puzzle packs. Interrupted by ads after every action. They badger you over and over about paying. If I can't experience your game without you hounding me for money constantly then it is NOT for me. I get that ads are a necessary evil and we tolerate them, but if your game is good and FAIRLY priced it will sell. There are plenty of crossword apps out there that are ad free, you are nothing special. Stop being so damn pushy. Uninstalled.

Best crossword puzzle app i've found. I like that it gives the choice of an easy, medium, and hard (or i can do two or all) for the day. I like that it asks me if i want to continue yesterday's puzzle (if i haven't completed it) when i choose 'today's puzzle'. It doesn't overload us with ads to watch- just before puzzle begins and each time a hint is requested.

I don't like how it skips all over the puzzle everytime I get an answer. It should just move to the next number. And you only get one free puzzle daily...if you want do do another, you must buy.

Fast, simple-to-use, & super-intuive. I just knocked-out a Saturday puzzle in under four minutes-NOT because the puzzle was too easy-I've been solving for decades-but because this way is more efficient.

It used to be Penny Press and Dell, two super puzzle magazines. I was a little disappointed when they merged because I lost a couple of my favorite formats, but online that doesn't matter too much. These are fun crossword puzzles again, with a large variety of types and difficulty. The puzzles are easily portable because they're in my phone. Anyway, welcome to the new Penny Dell. I'd like to see the return of some of the Penny Press variety puzzles, though.

I really like this particular app, but I wish there was a way to go back and do previous daily puzzles. It only lets you do the current day's puzzle, there is no calendar option to go back. Also, I had to uninstall & reinstall b/c it kept telling me to check my network connection when nothing was wrong, and now I can't reload my previous purchases.

Good interface. Ads aren't too intrusive. (Would pay to eliminate ads if it weren't quite so expensive to do so.) Three free puzzles per day is a fair amount. Puzzle size works well on a phone; I personally dislike needing to scroll around to see all of a puzzle, so it's nice to have puzzles tailored to fit.

It was good up until last week. Then I couldn't turn on to show me the letters in red. It said to wait a minute and try again. I couldn't finish the puzzle so I finally gave up and uninstall. But I installed it again. I' m hoping there won't be trouble again. I enjoy doing the puzzles,

The puzzle automatically moves to squares for the next move that are not desirable. You have to go through two extra steps for each move to follow a logical pattern. There is a fix for this. Thanks to the developers. Two more stars.

I never got to play, so I don't know if it's a good app. Before I could play the first game, it launched an ad for some other game, and it was LOUD, with no way to shut it up other than exiting the program. Unacceptable. Uninstalled.

I like to do all across then after the last across puzzle I so the down puzzles. This does first an across then a down. It really slowed my play. Because I don't like this method of solving I uninstalled the app.
User

I'm havin' fun!! Works great!! Just always remember to double-check which square you're filling in, because sometimes you'll over-write a letter from another word, if you don't.

Nice for daily crosswords but I had to uninstall/install the app and the "Restore Purchases" link won't work (got generic email reply from them but not resolved). Thankfully, I only made one small in-app purchase (on 4/21/19 in my Google Play history). That's too bad because I trusted the app since I buy the paper copies in the store. I won't anymore though. Also, you have to stay online to use (before update, only needed to be online to launch app)

Big problem after last update. It requires a live internet connection to solve crosswords. I used it for years on airplanes and other places I can't login to the internet. Now it tells me to log in to the internet or it won't work. I paid for a library of puzzles that no longer work. .

This is by far the least annoying crossword app. No push notices, ads not too intrusive, decent puzzles(not horribly easy), I love the intuitive hopping, controls are obvious, and the duplication of the current word down where you actually spell it is absolutely clutch. Nice job.

This is the best free cruisers puzzle I've tried. The levels are was they say: From Easy to Hard. Watching an ad to get a clue is a very reasonable. I really appreciate that I can play a while game without an ad. I wish the ad removal were not so pricey at $20. It should be half that much. Otherwise, the app is quite intuitive and fun.

don't download this app. Ever since the update you're forced to watch a video ad. If you let the video run through you get a reward of some kind. if you close the video you go back to the puzzle page and watch a gear icon go round and round for the time the video ran. if you click start puzzle your taken back to the video ad page, not the puzzle and it starts all over. I had 4 different videos come on and never got to the puzzle so I uninstalled. Don't download this app.

Mom and dad use to work Dell's crosswords together. Mom used her Dell puzzle dictionary. Dad liked the hard ones and mom the easy ones and both the medium ones. I prefer the electronic kind. I start with the easy and work up to hard. Thanks Dell, from mom, dad and me!😁👍👍

This is a good app. Puzzles are relatively easy (the "hard" ones somewhat less so) and you get 3 free new puzzles everyday. Only downside is you have to watch a longish ad everytime you open a puzzle. To see where you made errors once the puzzle is completed you have to watch another ad unless you want to pay $19.99 for them to go away. Still a good app overall.

Yet another ad-filled app... I don't mind ads before/after each game, but an ad every time I change options? Devs, you do realise over-saturation kills sales, yes?

So far so good. Love the Dell Penny aspect and the fact you can purchase books. Ads are unobtrusive and only occur when you want hints, etc. Everything works and not feeling taken advantage of with the ads. Hey, they have to make money, and so far I'm pretty impressed with what you get for what they ask. Winner in my book. Just what I was looking for in a crossword game. I especially love the ability to buy the books, which I plan to take advantage of in the future.
