# Fun Facts
On November 17, 1924, an editorial in The New York Times calls crossword puzzles "a primitive sort of mental exercise" and a "sinful waste" of time. Another editorial four days later predicts their swift disappearance. After Pearl Harbor, the Times becomes the last major New York daily to add the puzzle on February 15, 1942. As the first editor of the Crossword noted, "I don't think I have to sell you on the increased demand for this kind of pastime in an increasingly worried world. You can't think of your troubles while solving a crossword. . . ."

Insanely Bad Customer Service

The app itself is just fine. What you DON'T want to go through is the laboriously (think 1990's people!) difficult process of switching devices that Magmic has in store for you should you, say, upgrade your phone, for example. In that case you are required to EMAIL a screen shot of your receipt as will as your device ID to them and WAIT to get "approved". The TIFF I sent them with my ID number was supposedly "degraded" and they could not tell what product I bought-there are plenty of apps out there and of the 100+ apps I have Magmic is the ONLY provider to ask me to do their work for them-so guess what? It just isn't worth my time (translate $$) into getting apps I paid for onto my new phone-they can keep them and I wish them good luck with that. If your time is valuable, you will likely feel the same should you want to change devices.

4/5 stars

Center of word processing

Crosswords I always enjoy, the New York Times instance one of the very best. But this app needs some improvements:
1. Shouldn't have to pay for an app more than once, even if you are paying for a "subscription"
2. When you are interrupted by a phone call (or similar event) you shouldn't have to download & configure the app each time
3. Checking a completed puzzle is a good feature, especially being able to distinguish between a word & the entire puzzle, but the capability is needed to ask for marking of incorrect entries

Crosswords from the NY Times are a real benefit to life on Earth, as arcane as some of the themes & entries may be at times. Keep up the good work!

5/5 stars

I'm hooked!

It takes a little getting used to, but the way the clues jump in sequence is intuitive and makes it actually easier to complete than the traditional paper version. Great, great app.
