I enjoy the one in my local paper, The Oregonian. I can rarely complete it but when I get a tough answer I feel smarter. Well, a little smarted maybe.

Not to sound like a brown noser but I tried Stand Alone's Crosswords app on a friends iPhone and it's really nice. Getting an ipad soon and can't wait to try it out!

Gotta agree with the consensus, ny times is just heads above anyone else.

There's no substitute for the NYT, though I very much miss Eugene Maleska. His puzzles are still my favorites.
Can't wait to get my iPad later this month. I'd LOVE a copy of this app!!

I've actually been playing through the lite version of Crosswords and really enjoying it. The hint options that they include help me get through the various pop-culture references which I often don't get, and allow me to focus on the more interesting wordplay. My favorite specific puzzle so far has been "All Together Now" by Ben Tausig, but I haven't finished very many others yet.
Needless to say, getting a free copy of the full version would be great. It's on my wish list, but it's a tad expensive and I can't really justify the purchase at the moment.

People magazine...they seem to be the easiest. Quite rewarding after a tough day at the office

It's been a while, but I used to like the ones in Games magazine.

My favorite crossword puzzle
My favorite is the Monday New York Times crossword. It is generally the only one I can complete. Each day of the week their puzzle gets increasingly more difficult. Someday, I will succeed in completing the difficult one - a Sunday NY Times puzzle. At age 67, I better start working more quickly if I have any hope of achieving that goal.

I think the only redeeming quality of newspapers today is the crosswords puzzle. The local paper, the USA Today,and the ever difficult NY Times crosswords are great.Gimme a vector, Victor. I'm coming home. Roger, Roger. Huh?

I used to really enjoy the TV guide ones, but anymore I just buy books since I have issues with the paper being delivered into the grass so it gets wet. This app looks great and is in my iTunes wishlist

Bacon, OJ and the Toronto Star Saturday crossword is the perfect way to begin a weekend.
