Create crossword puzzles right on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch.

Also check out our companion app: Crossword Puzzler - download and solve crossword puzzles on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch.

Crossword Author allows you to define the grid size, place the blocks, and fill in theme words. It can then automatically fill your grid. An Expert Manual Grid Fill option is available as an In-App purchase for professional grid filling.

After the grid is filled, Crossword Author can assign clues to the puzzle. You can also manually set the clues as well.

A word finder is included for finding words that match a pattern.

Crossword Author has a built-in clue database and word list, but you can also use your own clue database and word list. See the Crossword Author support site for details.

Open crossword puzzle files directly from Safari, email, or use iTunes File Sharing. Crossword Author also reads and writes text versions of puzzles. This is especially useful for incomplete puzzles. See the Crossword Author support site for text puzzle format.

iCloud support - Enable iCloud sync in the Crossword Author preferences. If enabled, the current puzzle and settings will be synchronized between devices.

Open completed puzzles with other crossword apps. Tap the Organize button and then choose "Open With..." to send the puzzle to a crossword app such as "Crosswords" or "Across Lite".
