The New York Times is known for its motto, “All the news that’s fit to print.” It also is known for having arguably the most difficult crossword puzzle printed in any newspaper. The Times announced on Monday that starting on August 10th it will no longer make its crossword puzzle available to third party apps. Previously, New York Times crossword fans could access the puzzle using the .puz format on the Across Lite platform.
The NY. Times Crossword app brings you the most challenging puzzels right from the pages of the New York Times
The Crossword- the same puzzle printed every day in the New York Times. It increases in difficulty from Monday to Saturday. The Sunday puzzle is midlevel, but is the largest.
The Mini Crossword- the Mini is a short crossword that takes only a few minutes to complete. The mini is great to play during those short breaks you have during the day. Unlike the Crossword, the Mini doesn’t increase in difficulty throughout the week and features simpler clues.
Spelling Bee-How many words can you make with seven letters.? That’s the Times’ Spelling Bee game in a nut shell. New Spelling Bee puzzles are available every day at 3 a.m. E.T. An annual subscription is $39.99 or you can choose to pay $6.99 per month instead.
