Even the paid for version of the app loses progress on games and puzzles and I’ve lost my history twice on Wordle and one on spelling bee. And yes I’m still logged in. I expected more
As a 70 yr. Old man, waking up, having my coffee and doing the NYT Puzzle has become a part of my must do daily routine for the last five years. As I started getting older I started looking for ways to keep my mental state from declining. I like to believe that solving the NYT crossword is helpful in that sense.
Sunday puzzle should have a title like the one in the newspaper.
My game progress disappears when I close and open the app
When selecting autocheck on, it used to skip the words already finished in the puzzle now it goes through all the words, I preferred it the previous way.
Paid for yesterday, today the app won’t load. Everything up to date but it’s blank screens.
I love the games however the paywall is very annoying. Old games require a subscription... only so many free turns a day or you hit that sub wall.
I understand not having access to the backlog without cost. But you can’t even do the current day’s crossword without a subscription. What a racket.
I really appreciate the addition of Tiles to the app. It would be super cool if it remembers what your highest streak has been. Will the app ever get Vertex?
Hate how hard it is to check yesterday’s puzzle now. It’s great that I can play old puzzles but it’s natural that you would always want to check the answers for yesterday and there’s no good shortcut for that.
