Sarah Lane's app cap for iPad Today episode 201 is the New York Times Crossword Puzzle app. This app allows you to play the same crossword puzzles that are printed every day in the New York Times newspaper. It does require a subscription to the New York Times to play the current puzzles, but you can access puzzles from the archives at a lower cost or for free. There are also themed puzzle packs you can buy, and the first puzzle in each pack is free to try.
The New York Times Crossword Puzzle app is free to download, and users can get unlimited access to the daily puzzle and the archive for 7 days. Then it requires a subscription fee to continue with the daily puzzles. Subscribers also get access to play the puzzles on the web, and progress in the iOS app will sync to the web as well.
For a demonstration of the New York Times Crossword Puzzle app, check out iPad Today episode 201 with Sarah Lane and Leo Laporte.
