    Crossword Solver with Hints - Agent X Word

    Crossword Solver with Hints - Agent X Word You will surely appreciate the reliability and coverage of this iPhone crossword app because it collects the clues people are searching for when solving crossword puzzles. What sets it apart from other crossword solvers is that it just needs the clue to provide you with probable solutions and does not rely on pattern searching of already known letters and providing a list of words that match that pattern. One thing that I really appreciate about this app is that it lets me choose to be given just the clue or hint to a puzzle and not the correct answer right away. So, I still get to think a little and in a way solve the puzzle on my own.The app gives you up to three hints per answer, definitions for answers and synonyms, and recent search history. It also allows you to e-mail answers to yourself or others. (Price: $0.99)
