Default Shortyz Crosswords: Excellent Crossword App.

Shortyz Crosswords is an excellent Android app for those looking for a bit more mental challenge out of their games. It is the best free crossword app I have found so far. It gathers puzzles from a few sources everyday, and if you pay for a New York Times subscription it will download those famous puzzles as well. The puzzles end up being a fair challenge for the average person. It shouldn't be too difficult to complete every puzzle in a day if you enjoy them. I definitely found the puzzles an improvement in challenge over my previous crossword app, Crossword Lite. I also found it easier to navigate the crosswords than in Crossword Lite. In Shortyz Crosswords, navigation is intuitive and rarely frustrating. The only thing I dislike about the app is that it requires "Show Errors" to be turned on every time the program is restarted, but that's more nit-picky than truly annoying. Overall, if you enjoy Crosswords and don't want to pay, this is the app for you.
