Review by Chis cringle

Wow!!! - Thanks so much for this. This will make a bunch of boy scouts happy durring the their next night ops competition. Very easy to use and many more options than I'd expect for free.

Review by gczzdc

totally broken - i don’t know if the full version is any better but with a demo version this bad I certainly am not going to pay to find out. Counterintuitive and poorly designed UI, a lack of standard options, and a totally backwards design process make deleting this app an easy choice.

Version 2.9.0
Review by markmurdock

description leaves out critical information - I am a teacher and like to use cross word puzzles as study aids, even tests. So, I downloaded Puzzle Maker Light, whipped out a crossword puzzle which was great and then just before class I went to print it out. SORRY, you need to load Puzzle Maker Pro, if you want to print out an X-word puzzle with more than 10 words. Well, why didn’t it tell me that when I reached the 10 words! Like a lot of teachers, I do not have enough prep time and even though I did the puzzle at home, I did not get a note that it would not work, until I needed to print.! Very frustrating. So be warned, if you want a puzzle with more than 10 words, this is not the app for you. I do not know about the word search feature, but would expect the same treatment.! So naturally, I downloaded the Puzzle Maker Pro and got it printed out seemlessly, but I better be able to do a puzzle with 50 words for what it cost. I will post a review for that app after I have used it for a while.

Review by Pa observer

Takes a first grade mentality - I could not find any sort of Help screen but I finally figured out how to get started..After that it was easy to do and just what I wanted. Ten words was enough ideas for creating puzzles that act as qualifiers for opening your Christmas gift. This will be a lot of fun for people who like to guess what’s in the box but want some difficult clues to stem their impatience
