TILES Unwind while you match elements in the day’s pattern — the key is to make consecutive matches. LETTER BOXED Create words using letters around the square. Letter Boxed is another fun way to test your word-making skills. STATS Track your progress for The Crossword, Wordle and Spelling Bee.

  • Love the app, but all of a sudden experiencing bugs

    By MODi1991
    I love this app and use it daily. However, a few days ago, new daily games stopped loading and now I have to uninstall and reinstall to access the daily games. I reported the big but haven’t had a response yet.
  • Nice app

    By mpenacho
    Good interface
  • No app wide dark mode

    By Supergerroususmc
    Games are great, but only worldly and crosswords allow dark mode. The entire app needs dark mode. Love finishing wordle in the evening then when I go play a different game I am greeted by the brightest white screen blinding me so much I just close the app.
  • This product provides what is implied in the name...

    ... Puzzles from the ny times, some old ones are free (not the Great Old Ones, they are still imprisoned beneath the sea) you can pay for new ones.good

  • Best games ever

    By Canadagrl736
    Love the quality of these games. You can tell they’re handcrafted.
  • Unusable since last update

    By Fohcyo
    I love my NYT Crosswords. I love their other games too. Since the last update the app has been unusable. I checked to ensure my phone is updated to the latest iOS as well as with the latest app update. I’m very hopeful this will be fixed soon.
  • Crossword Puzzles

    By A Wyoming Friend
    Absolutely fantastic. The opportunity to use Auto-check helps me to learn, and to do all of the puzzles each week.
  • So buggy

    By DontHate-18
    New daily puzzles take all day to load even on perfect wifi, can’t join the leaderboards, i can open a puzzle i’ve already completely to find it blank, close it, and when i reopen it, it’s complete again. Sooo buggy and I don’t even want to continue my membership anymore.
  • Free games don’t load after update!

    By Edug8r97
    Guess I’m looking for another wordle app!
