Crosswords for Kids 1

Crosswords for Kids, Volume 1

No picture clues here! Twenty new quick crosswords by professional puzzle writer Denise Sutherland. All these puzzles have been written for children aged around 9–13. They're great for adults learning English as a second language, too. These are proper crosswords, with an easier vocabulary and easier clues than an adult's crossword.

The grid and clue lists are interactive — tapping a clue or square calls up the standard system keyboard to enter the letters. You can continue to interact with the grid while the keyboard is active.

You can zoom in on the grid, filling the screen with a word, and then pinch to zoom out again — or let the app auto-zoom for you!

The app has an optional timer, and settings for revealing letters, and hints if you're really stuck (type ? and the app fills a letter in for you). You can print from the app, if you'd rather solve the puzzles on paper.

Crosswords for Kids 1 is self-contained and works offline as well, so you can take these crosswords wherever you go. Need something to do on the bus or in maths class? These crosswords are ready whenever you are!

Uses standard Apple system keyboard or external bluetooth keyboard for text entry.

Requires iOS 7.0 or newer.

What's new in version 1.2.2
This app has been updated by Apple to use the latest Apple signing certificate.

Another bug banished!

Many apologies for the 'completion-screen-won't-go-away-bug', apparently our programmer couldn't even complete a kids crossword! It is all fixed, and your unsolved puzzles are clear to solve.

When a crossword is completed you can also now reset that puzzle and try again, or challenge a friend to do it faster!
Our verdict: Ok
  • + Crosswords for Kids 1 is a highly rated app (4-star).
