Version 6.0.1 released on November 05, 2017
iPhone X support, Diagramless crosswords, on-screen cursor keys, improved keyboard, and more. • You might say the iPhone X has an unusual screen shape. We certainly would. It took a bit of twisting, but we now fully support the “notch” and the curved corners. • We’ve added diagramless crosswords! If you’re a New York Times subscriber, they have lots of great diagramless puzzles on their Archives page, and Puzzazz is the only way to solve them on your iOS device. • There have been a lot of requests for on-screen cursor keys, and now they’re here. And, yes, they work for all the crazy puzzle types Puzzazz supports. Turn them on in the Settings menu. • Keyboard keys now highlight when they’re pressed, helping you notice and correct typing mistakes quicker. • We fixed a bunch of bugs, including better handling of puzzles with redacted solutions and resolving issues with some puzzles on small screen iPhones. • 6.0.1 fixed a problem that some users had opening diagramless crosswords

Version 5.2 released on September 05, 2017
It’s all about feedback from you! We improved the on-screen keyboard, added cell number options, and more. * We completely reworked the on-screen keyboard, making it more responsive and better looking. You now have the option of a larger size for the keyboard, with keys that are the same size as those on Apple’s keyboard, which is particularly useful on phones when you’re not using TouchWrite. Choose whether you prefer a taller keyboard or a few more clues visible with the Keyboard Size option. * We’ve added an option for larger cell numbers in crosswords and other grid puzzles. Your choices are Standard, Large, and Giant. * You can now choose which sound gets played when you finish a puzzle correctly or allow Puzzazz to pick a random sound as it has done in the past. You can still turn sounds on or off with a single tap. * We fixed a problem that caused some New York Times variety puzzles to load incorrectly. * And, of course, we squashed a variety of bugs

Version 5.1 released on May 31, 2017
5.1 is even more awesomer!

Plus: ◆ The on-screen keyboard in Sudoku and KenKen now indicates when you’ve used up a number ◆ The Library button provides quick access to all the ebooks you own ◆ The Timer can now be cancelled if you start it by mistake (tap the Timer to pause, then Cancel) ◆ Bug fixes 5.0 has FREE daily KenKen® and Sudoku puzzles, Bluetooth keyboards, Apple Pencil, 3D Touch, Quick Actions, improved TouchWrite, Split Screen, Slide Over, Answer Boxes, fast rebus entry, puzzle status indicators, improved Leaderboard, puzzle ratings, Recently Opened list, improved Help and How to Solve guides, speed and memory usage improvements, improved downloads with status, squashed bugs, and more. And did we mention lots of new puzzle ebooks? ◆ Free daily KenKen® and Sudoku puzzles, now with more than 100 puzzle ebooks available, including new “giant” crosswords and a variety of Sudoku and other logic puzzles ◆ NYT Crossword subscribers will appreciate our streamlined configuration and downloading, and a new download status icon lets you check what’s happening; we’ll be adding support for additional third-party subscriptions in the future ◆ Puzzazz is the first app to automatically switch between “pen” and “pencil” input modes based on how you write, with either an Apple Pencil¹ or 3D Touch² ◆ One of the most requested features was support for Bluetooth keyboards, and you’re going to love it, with great support for typing, keyboard shortcuts, and cursor keys, even in all the unusual puzzle types; enter multiple letters in a cell (a “rebus” entry) by typing “/”, the letters you want, then Return ◆ We improved the on-screen keyboard, adding a Rebus key where appropriate, and made some TouchWrite improvements (see Getting Started) ◆ Another frequently requested feature was to not automatically advance when you finish entering a word—the option is now in the Settings menu ◆ Return to ebooks you’ve been solving quickly using the new Recently Opened section ◆ Use 3D Touch² on your iPhone home screen to jump right into the NYT crossword or featured puzzle ebooks with new Quick Actions ◆ Split View³ support lets you solve puzzles while Googling for help (or watching a movie!); as always, Puzzazz won’t stop your music from playing while you’re solving ◆ Slide Over⁴ support lets you get puzzle help on the web without leaving Puzzazz ◆ Optional Answer Boxes for Crosswords and other grid puzzles lets you see the answer letters for a clue right next to the clue, while still letting you see the entire puzzle grid and all clue sets (it’s in the Settings menu) ◆ Keep track of your progress with new puzzle progress indicators the Table of Contents ◆ Rate puzzles you solve and compare ratings with those of other solvers (all puzzles, including downloaded puzzles, have ratings and a leaderboard) ◆ A new “Good for Kids” section highlights ebooks that are particularly good for kids as young as pre-teens ◆ The bug with downloaded puzzles disappearing has been fixed ◆ If you have problems purchasing an ebook, please contact us. If you really like Puzzazz, we have a favor to ask. If you’ve read this far, we’re betting you really like Puzzazz :) We’d really appreciate it if you’d give Puzzazz a 5-star review in the App Store.
