Useful game aids mean you can always finish the crossword:

1) Play Concurrently
Ability to save and reload games, so several games can be played at the same time
2) Built-in crossword matcher
The game can show you potential answers for an uncompleted word in the grid. The game uses the length of the word and the letters that you have already entered and displays the matching words, by using a built-in dictionary of 65,000 words. This aid even works for the general knowledge clues! Also includes the ability to look up word definitions or details on a fact or person.
3) Validate
Confirm if a given answer is correct
4) Reveal Word or Letter
If you can make no further progress, choose to reveal a letter or the whole word to a clue of your choosing
5) Anagrams
At very easy level, an anagram of the answer is shown as part of the clue, to provide further help. With this aid it should be possible to complete most crossword puzzles.
6) Show Wrong
When the grid is completed, the app will show all wrong answers, to allow you to correct and complete the game

Each game is assigned a difficulty level from 0 (easy) to 9 (very hard). The difficulty level is determined by the settings. Each difficulty level maintains the high scores (measured by fastest time to complete the game). The game displays the best 20 scores for each difficulty level.
Compare your high scores with others around the world by using Apple's "Game Center".
