You will love our latest tasty app offering — Wordburger. We’ve developed it in collaboration with master Australian cryptic setter, David Astle.
The Wordburger app is a collection of 25 new freshly made cryptics by David for rookies. It follows on from his wordplay book, Wordburger (Allen & Unwin 2015).
There is a help page with bite-sized intros to the different types of wordplay — complete with cool animations to illustrate them!
Wordburger will run on your iOS device (iPhone, iPod, or iPad). Here is the detailed user guide.
As with all our crosswords apps, you can choose the crossword grid, letter, background and highlight colours, as well as choose from seven different fonts.
There are also options for an auto zoom function, so you can zoom in on the grid, a timer, hints (type a ?), and red for incorrect letters. All crosswords can be reset, and printed on AirPrint-enabled printers if you prefer to solve on paper. These features are especially helpful if you’re just learning how to solve crosswords — and with cryptics, we all need a little help!
