How wonderful!

I HAVE BEEN WORKING CRYPTOGRAMS FOR 30 YEARS. AT MY AGE IT IS SO NICE NOT TO HAVE TO WRITE EVERY LETTER! AND THERE IS SUCH A LARGE SELECTION OF PUZZLES THAT I SHOULD BE ENJOYING THEM FOR SOME TIME.

I've used many cryptogram games on the web and have programmed two cryptogram tools myself. I was therefore surprised to find that filling in a substitution did not seem to propagate to the same letter elsewhere in the text. I looked for options, but couldn't find any, so I guess I'm stuck with it. A further disappointment: it's a unique feature to be able to pick a category for the puzzle texts, but I really would usually prefer not to know. It's too easy if you already know that it's a quote by Mark Twain. Give me the automatic propagation, and a large set of quotes where I don't know who the author is.
Very disappointed. I doubt that I will use this app unless the author makes some real improvements.

    If you like puzzles this may be for you!!!

    I have always liked cryptograms and this has a nice selection of "topics," some easier than others. One thing the app lacks is some method of scoring yourself - taking account of things like the time needed to complete a puzzle, or difficulty.

    Love it!

    I like doing these. I don't have to wait to see if I am correct when the paper comes out tomorrow. I can do as many or as few as I want each day. I appreciate knowing whether I am on the right tract before I go too far. NO PAPER AND PEN...
