Crossword puzzles have been around in some form or another for over a century. Most of us remember watching our mothers or fathers doing a crossword puzzle at the kitchen table while eating breakfast. Like so many other traditional forms of printed materials the crossword is now available in the form of an app. There are many different crossword apps available in the App Store but Daily Celebrity Crossword is one of the better ones. This is a free app and it’s compatible with the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
We love to play games that challenge the mind which explains the popularity of crosswords. Daily Celebrity Crossword successfully brings the crossword to your iOS device. There are hundreds of archived puzzles to choose from and the app introduces a new one every single day. This is what really sets it apart from other crossword puzzle apps. Without fresh material a crossword app will lose its appeal pretty quickly.
Having a lot of puzzles to choose from is certainly one of the attractions of this app but it has some other positive characteristics. One of the best things about this app is the way it handles ads. Ads are to be expected in free apps but unfortunately that usually means annoying pop ups or misplaced banner ads. In Daily Celebrity Crossword the ads are unobtrusive: you only have to view them if you want to reveal a clue or skip a step in the crossword puzzle. It’s a great way to handle ads that doesn’t make you feel like they’re being forced on you. This app will require 31 MB of free space on your iOS device.
How to Play
Daily Celebrity Crossword has the look and feel of any crossword you’ve ever played before but it has a couple of unique features which help it to stand out from the crowd. First of all the developers have made a conscious effort not to include obscure puzzle questions. All of the puzzle questions are based on celebrities and well known movies and shows. It also highlights the puzzle question you’re currently working on which is quite helpful. You can skip a puzzle if you’re stuck and come back to it later.
One of the most frustrating aspects of any crossword puzzle is getting stuck on a clue you just can’t seem to figure out. Daily Celebrity Crossword allows you to view the answer to a puzzle question if you’re willing to watch a short video ad from their sponsors. It’s a unique way to handle ads: you get the answer you’re looking for and the app developers get to satisfy their sponsors. This allows the developer to make money off their app without filling it with obtrusive ads. The puzzles work seamlessly and the app appears to be glitch free.
Daily Celebrity Crosswords is an excellent crossword puzzle app with hundreds of puzzles to choose from. It’s a great way to pass the time on a rainy day that doesn’t bombard you with unwanted ads. If you love crosswords then you’ll definitely want to download this app.
