How much of a foodie are you? Do you know your picodon from your persillade? Test your epicurean knowledge with these 25 tasty crosswords.
The majority of clues are themed around fine wine, good food, and the whole world of cooking. These crosswords stray into the realm of more challenging clues, but you can always get a hint if you need one. This is a self-contained volume of crosswords, and works offline so you can take these crosswords wherever you go — while waiting at your favourite restaurant, perhaps?
You can customise the crossword grid, choosing from beautiful background papers, five fonts, and a range of grid, highlight, and font colours. The paper textures and text are stunning in HD on retina displays of all sizes, and still look appealing on low resolution screens.
The grid and clue lists are interactive, and 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! If you have vision impairment, you can set the grid and font colours to best suit your needs, and the zooming facility magnifies the grid as much as you need.
The app has an optional timer, and settings for revealing letters, and hints for incorrect letters (type ? and the app fills a letter in for you).
Uses standard Apple system keyboard or external bluetooth keyboard for text entry.
Requires iOS 7.0 or newer.
