    "The New York Times Crossword puzzle will definitely test your verbal skills. People less experienced with these kinds of puzzles might find this particular app to be a bit frustrating - when you don't have "momentum" when solving the entire thing, it can be disheartening to look at all the blank space. One interesting point to note is that the puzzles actually get harder throughout the week - maybe try one on Monday if you are stumped on a Thursday or Friday."

    "Excellent way to learn new languages or perfect those you already know. The best way to learn is like a child-by playing, by doing, by experimenting as opposed to sitting, studying, and memorizing. This app accomplishes learning in a smart and interactive way which you will benefit from."

    "I love any game that helps keep my mind fresh. Like some games you don't need to use your brain at all. This is something that challenges me everyday and i want to beat it and try the next challenge."
