Looking for a crossword puzzle app


Post by cscottclay » Thu Jul 09, 2020 12:42 pm

I am looking for a recommendation for an app that will work on an Android phone that will read .puz crossword files. I used to use "Robo Crosswords" but that is not working now. I use "Shortyz" for the NYT crosswords but it will not read the MGWCC puzzles. Any ideas? Thanks!

I have alphacross and I've gotten it to work on .puz before.

Very pleased with alphacross.

The trick is to understand how to open .puz files. You don't open them from the app, but from your phone's Files directory(ies). alphacross becomes the default app for .puz files.
