    Thanks again for all your feedback! This build fixes a bug where users would receive multiple daily push notifications; users will no longer receive notifications of the daily puzzle. Each daily puzzle is available the evening before it appears in the newspaper. On weekdays, the puzzle is available at 10 p.m. Eastern time. On weekends (Saturday and Sunday, for Sunday and Monday’s puzzles), the puzzle is available at 6 p.m. Eastern time. Fun fact: WINDOWS has never appeared as an answer in The New York Times Crossword during the Will Shortz Era, but has appeared in 119 clues. The latest clue was “Composer of the Windows 95 start-up sound.” The answer? ENO for Brian Eno.

Love the crosswords, nut the app eats up battery and makes my computer run extremely hot when it doesn't have an internet connection.

This app actually got me interested in crosswords, not having played them much before. It's well designed & I'm considering the subscription, which is unheard of for my cheap @$$ :)! I have just 2 issues: - Why does this app have such a hard time distinguishing between L & I? I always use the capital L & a straight vertical line for I. I get that the line could be read as a lowercase L, but it does NOT like when I try to dot a lowercase I. I've had to re-do a square over 10 times before it finally read it as I. -Why is there no easy way to find out the cost of just a crossword sub? Neither the app or the website state amounts. Presumably you see if you add to cart, but I want to consider it before ordering.

When the app can't access a network, it consumes 45-50% CPU, raises power state to high, and heats up my surface pro 3 to no end. Developers need to realize the world sometimes travels. Otherwise a great app.

A real pleasure to use with my Surface Pro 3 and stylus.

It would be great if the app had the timer and ability to pause like the website. I am sure there is some other functionality it could be given as well!

It's really frustrating that I cannot write in my answers on my Surface RT. Apparently the handwriting is only for the Surface Pro.
