I am having a problem after downloading the recent update for iPhone. When I type the letters do not appear in the squares even though it advances to the next square. Anybody got any ideas?

What device are you using (iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod touch fourth-generation, iPad 2, etc.)? Do you know what iOS version you're running?

I have a iPhone 3GS and someone here just suggested checking for a system update, which I probably need to do anyway. I have no idea which one I am using. Will try that and let u know

Unfortunately, there's a bug in Crosswords v.2.21 that prevents entered letters from appearing in the puzzle grid if you're running iOS v.3.1.3. We're currently working on a fix, and it should be available soon.

For now, you can either try solving the puzzle via the Clues tab, or upgrade to iOS v.4.x. Our apologies for the inconvenience!

I have this problem too, except I have a Droid. I wonder if anyone else running Crosswords for Android is having the same thing? When I use the Clues mode, the letters don't appear when I type them in even though it advances to the next square. They do appear eventually but only about 3-4 seconds later.

My apologies everyone. We have this fixed and are testing a new build for release.
