TiPb Birthday Bash: Crosswords for iPhone Give Away


Definitely the NY Times. I got hooked on crosswords during boring college lectures. A talent for word puzzles may be the most valuable skill I took away from engineering school.

The Straits Time. (Not an American too!)
I'm a Crossword Puzzle maniac.
Love it.
And will love to have one(or more) in my iPhone! :)

Definitely the NYT puzzle, although I have bought crossword puzzle books to satisfy my cravings from time to time. An iPhone app to do the same would be awesome!

The NY Times, without a doubt. I'm always very ambitious and attempt to get through the whole puzzle, without crossing out, using ink... never successful. It'd be nice to have a great quality crossword game for the iPhone, and it would save my fingers from all the ink smudges. :)

The Times crosswords are definitely good. But I prefer the book that sits on my nightstand for use every evening before bed - nothing like tiring out the brain a bit before nodding off to sleep!

United Media, published in the DMN. Grew up with it and love to play it anytime I'm in the DFW area.

No love for Sudoku?! If I had to take a pick of crosswords puzzles it would be "The Evening Sun" Norwich NY's only newspaper.

Any. I love sitting with family, friends and coffee trying to figure out the clues. Trying to work up to "Wordplay" status.

I like the cheap crossword books the best! You know, the kind you can get from bookstores or local hobby places. A whole book is always better than 1 a week in a paper!

im more of a local news crosswords guy, over here in puerto rico we got bilingual ones which are rather easy at times i mean you got 2 languages to choose from en El Nuevo dia newspaper jejejej

the atlana journal constitution. It's pretty challenging
hope I win. Looks like a good app. :D

I always go with the Houston Chronicle. Nothing like starting your day with a little brain food.

USA today. Yeah, that's why I would love this program - I could get better at doing the damn things.

My crossword is the NY Times crossword. Well, the Monday and Tuesday ones. After that, well, Sudoku time!

I love doing the crossword puzzle in the boston globe, or my local newspaper, the standard times. My friends make fun of me all the time for bringing them around with me all day, trying to figure them out all day. I would love to have them on my phone.

I just getting into Crosswords... haven't tried NYT, still out of my league, but I am learning. I have tried the 2-Across app and it is good, but need to give this one a try.

Switched 2 years ago from German to English/US crosswords. Learned about degree of difficulty from Monday to W/E puzzles. Worked our (incl. wife) way through MO, TU and WE books by Peter Gordon, NY Sun. Next: Killer Thursday Book.

UW The Daily
Seattle Times
online: Microsoft Live Search Club
doesn't matter where or how I find it, I always have to stop and do the crosswords!

I'm not proud of it, but I like to do UClick's Universal Crossword. I usually access it through the San Jose Mercury News web site.

Richmond Times Dispatch
Use it all the time my mother loved it, but since she died I have taken up doing them

My girlfriend and I like to do the times puzzle together on Sunday mornings if we have time.
