Is scrambling your strong suit? Play Spelling Bee and see how many words you can make with 7 letters. Play at your own pace with new daily puzzles.
Looking for a numbers game, minus the math? Play Sudoku and fill each 3x3 set of boxes with numbers 1–9. Numbers in sets, rows or columns can not repeat. Play a new puzzle every day in easy, medium or hard mode.

I paid for this last year, but the app has somehow gotten worse over time. you can't even buy a new subscription because the page only loads for a fraction of a second and then goes away. there are tons of features that are missing from the games too.
Works great on Samsung A7
The app is not syncing with the game on my laptop. I already made Queen Bee on my laptop, but the app on my phone does not show it. It used to sync, but not now☹️
Easy way to do ny times crossword. I prefer paper copy to work on, but good substitute when paper not available.
I'm a NY Times Crosswords addict! I love that the subscription includes all archived puzzles going back to 1995. I can do as many crosswords as I want to, and never run out! I can download a few puzzles from the archives before an airline trip, and not have to use wifi. New York Times has always been the leader, for crossword fans. Flawlessly edited, highly entertaining, and educational! Also included are the Spelling Bee, Wordle, Sudoku, Vertex and Tiles. Lots of quality puzzles for your $.
This version includes Sudoku. Now you can play the numbers game, plus Spelling Bee, Wordle, The Crossword and The Mini Crossword in the app.
This version also contains improvements to keep you solving smoothly!
