Across Crossword Trainer

Literate Software
Would you like to learn how to solve crosswords like an expert? This app is what you need.

If you are frustrated with not being able to solve US-style English crosswords from respected newspapers and perhaps even doubting your ability, now there is an app for that.

Join the thousands of people that have used this app to improve their skills enough to be able to solve published crosswords that they once thought were beyond their abilities.

Exquisitely designed for the iPad by the creators of Across Lite, the most widely used crossword solver software since 1995, this crossword skill building kit will help you improve your skills considerably. Not with boring study material or tests - just by solving specially created crosswords.

What it is:
- The most enjoyable and sophisticated crossword solver ever built
- An included collection of 75 crosswords professionally constructed to teach how to solve crosswords with learning notes for each crossword

What it is NOT:
- Crossword solver for Across Lite crosswords available on the web. Install our Across Lite Crosswords app from the store for this.

Using a unique interface that looks like a printed crossword, the app lets you focus on improving your skills even if you have never used a crossword app before.

Crossword solving skills are a combination of ability, technique and practice. The automated help in scanning and selecting clues to solve that captures techniques from expert solvers will help you incorporate those techniques into your solving.

The carefully and professionally constructed 75 crosswords included in the kit take you through a progression of easy, medium and transitional levels, with increasing levels of word play and themes while familiarizing you with some of the oft-repeated crossword "cliches" that makes solving harder puzzles easier. Brief notes for each crossword provide learning points.

You should be ready to tackle most reputable crosswords by the time you finish the included crosswords. If you need additional crosswords for practice, you can purchase more crosswords from renowned authors from inside the app.

We hope you enjoy this lovingly-crafted app as much as we have enjoyed building it.

What's new in version 4.1.1
