Default Shortyz Crosswords: Best Crossword App in Market

This excellent crossword application allows you to download crosswords from a huge variety of sources, including the Houston Chronicle, the LA Times, the Boston Globe, and many other reputable and experimental sources. The given compressed keyboard is excellent and very easy to use, with the option of using the native keyboard (useful for swype users). There is an option of revealing errors, which can be easily be switched on and off via the menu, as well as a separate screen that presents all the clues in a list, with the selected clue's boxes (with filled in letters) at the top of the screen. Overall, the variety of crosswords and ease of use of Shortyz Crosswords makes it the top crossword application in the android market.

Default problems since update on 2/22/11

yesterday there was an update for shortyz! It would not work for me, said unknown error, could not install. I have an HTC Evo. I made sure my setting was checked that allows downloads from unknown sources. Still, wouldn't work. So I decided to uninstall and reinstall, thinking it would include the update. BUT, now it won't even install, same error. And, I love this app so much, it is the only one I use, every single day. Anyone able to help with this problem???

Does anyone use this app on a tablet and can recommend which one? I'd like to see it on one before I decide which tablet to buy myself and I want to make sure it'll work well because I can't live without my daily crossword.

My own application, Unolingo, works well on tablets and I wanted to make sure Shortyz will as well.
