The New York Times Crossword Puzzle is legendary and people all over the world are quite enamoured solving them. If you want to do the puzzles as soon as they come out, typically you have to subscribe to the New York Times, but this is easier said than done if you live outside the United States. Crossword lovers now have another option, you can download the official New York Times for Android.
The New York Times Crossword Puzzle for Android allows you to do the Mini puzzles for free and has a subscription option to do the full puzzles for $6.95/month or $39.95/year. Through the app you will get the full daily crossword puzzle before it gets printed in the next day’s newspaper. You also get unlimited access to all of NYT’s crossword archive. If you don’t like the subscription model, there are themed puzzle packs where the first crossword is free, but the rest cost money.
What I like most about this crossword puzzle app is that it is perfect for e-readers that run Android. There are no complex animations or rendering issues that would detract from using this simplistic app, unlike most e-reading apps.
