Question for the dev - why does the keyboard not automatically position itself so that the spaces for the word are best seen? Should be quite easy and would be really useful.

Looks promising - great value currently!

Great game IMHO. Great value for some brain gymnastics and eye candy.

Maybe I missed something, but when I try to type an answer in the crossword, it stays on the same square and replaces letters, instead of filling in each letter in a separate square.

Am I doing something wrong ?

Also, it would be really nice not to have to move the keyboard manually. can't it pop up out of the way of the puzzle grid ?

Good game, but improvements seem to be in order !

I'm an app-oholic! And there's no 12-step program...

Something I've noticed is, even after I've completed a crossword puzzle there's no "finished" state or completed state. For instance, I finished the Disney theme crossword puzzle, all of the squares are filled, all of the clues are greyed-out and checked off as correct, but the puzzle timer continues to count down and the puzzle select screen still shows a clock on it.

This may be how it's supposed to be, I just figured that there would be some sort of "You're Done" and an icon over the "book" that let's me know that I've completed it and it's not a pending/open puzzle.

I've considered that maybe I've not completed the puzzle correctly, but all of my answers fit perfectly in their spots, make sense to the clues, and like I said the clues show that they're correct (if you don't have the correct answer the clue remains normal, but when you've got the answer a line is drawn through it, the color grays out, and a small check mark appears).

Oh... Almost forgot, I'm noticing spelling/grammar mistakes, even in the answers. For instance, the answer for "Pinocchio's Father" is "Geppeto" but it should be Geppetto with two t's at the end. An example of some of the grammar issues or translation issues might be some of the clues themselves. For instance "Son of the Zeus and Hera" probably should be "Son of Zeus and Hera" as Zeus is a proper noun (name) and not an object or the clue for 13 Down on the Disney puzzle is "The pronce who has ugly face". My wife and I honestly had no clue what that was even asking, but it did make us laugh a lot.

Spoiler:
It's Beast from "Beauty and the Beast". He's the ugly face pronce evidently.

Anyway, Excellent job. I really am enjoying this, the style/layout of the game alone drew me in, and I'm totally digging it even with the flaws I've found. Total fun, and I can't wait to see where it goes with updates.
