Crossword App Filling What Newspaper Puzzle Fans Need

The most famous crossword puzzle in the world may belong to the New York Times. For more than 75 years, vocabulary junkies have been grabbing the paper and a pencil and taking a stab at the grid of empty squares. Its popularity appears to be growing - partly thanks to subscriptions to an app. The company recently announced The New York Times Crossword App reached 400,000 standalone subscribers. That’s double the number it had two years ago.
