Crossword Genius App Details

Enjoy Cryptic Crosswords anywhere The app allows you to enjoy cryptic crosswords on your phone solving challenging puzzles wherever you are. Meet Ross – always on hand to help An innovative feature is the inclusion of a fun assistant called Ross who is always on hand to explain how a clue works or give you hints when you are stuck. Ross uses artificial intelligence to do this – the only AI that can tackle cryptic crossword clues. This includes clues that Ross has never seen before. Load newspaper crosswords straight into your phone Another innovative feature is the scan feature: point your phone camera at a printed crossword – such as what you might find in a daily newspaper – and Ross will use modern machine vision techniques to read in the grid and clues so you can solve the crossword on your phone.

  • Do ANY crossword - and get help 😃

    Decent crossword app made BRILLIANT by the capability to take a photo of ANY crossword and wait just seconds for the app to reproduce it in usable form, indeed user-friendly form. Better still, the app’s ‘Assistant’ (ROSS) is available to help you when stuck with either answers or suggestions and hints, and whilst it doesn’t always know the answer it really is superb.
  • Incredible

    Not only can this workout the answers to cryptic clues it can tell you why as well. This makes it a great teaching tool. I love it!
  • Wonderful

    Having used the previous PC version I am very impressed with this app. Better at picking up the cryptography of the Telegraph than the Times but very good nonetheless. If there is one thing I would like to see added it would be an ability to scan a crossword grid and the clues separately as jumbo crosswords need extensive editing after capture. I’m a fan!
  • Learn and solve cryptic crosswords

    Such a well designed and intuitive app. If you’re a seasoned solver or would like to become one, then this app is for you. It’s the most helpful I’ve ever used. My go to crosswords are the Guardian the Telegraph and the Times (UK daily newspapers) Those pesky clues that can be so elusive and prevent you finishing are a thing of the past. Thanks guys 👍
  • Brilliant app

    For several months I’ve been using the beta version of Crossword Genius and it really is a genius. It is easy to scan in crosswords from screenshots or by taking a photo. Some manual editing may be required but that’s easy to do. I usually use it for 15x15 crosswords from papers such as The Times/Sunday Times, Telegraph and Scotsman but I have also managed to scan in Times Jumbo crosswords. It is enormously satisfying to finish a crossword that previously might have been too difficult. It can solve quite complicated constructions and explain the solution. Get it now and improve your solving ability.
  • Amazing piece of sofware

    By Snotty7
    In the distant past I bought and loved the now discontinued PC version of this application and I’ve been using this app from the early beta testing stage. This version is even better. Its ability to scan and convert crossword puzzles into a playable document is a boon freeing you from trying to correct your incorrect answers on newsprint paper and turning it into an unreadable mess. The added bonus is the ‘Ask Ross’ feature for when you get really stuck is a God send. Not only will it provide a solution (or possible solutions) to even the most cryptic questions, it will also provide the rationale for the answer(s) I’m not sure how easy it would be to use on one of the smaller screen smart phones, but on my tablet or larger phone it is just fine. For lovers of cryptic crosswords this is a must have app. A truly brilliant app.
  • Extremely Clever

    By Keefyboy2
    Having originally subscribed to the Windows version of this software, the iOS version does not disappoint. I have been a keen fan of cryptic crosswords for many years, and I am constantly amazed by just how clever this programme is. When stuck on a clue, this app more often than not will produce the correct answer in seconds. The only problem is to avoid the temptation to go to this for the answer, rather than spend time wrestling with the clue in the traditional manner! Head and shoulders above any other crossword solver.
