Wordle

By kjm1997

Please update the app so that Wordle can be played when iPad is used in landscape. The older url that can still be used works in landscape , but a big ad is now added to the top of that screen. As a subscriber I don’t want ads.

Crosswords AND Wordle = Perfect!

By Kalliopy

I have subscribed to the NYT Crosswords for quite some time, and was very happy to hear about their recent acquisition of Wordle, which is my favorite daily game to play. I was hopeful they would soon add Wordle to he NYT Crossword app, and that day is finally here! Now I can finally play Wordle in the app, rather than play it daily on the website! Thanks so much for this great addition!!

Mostly Great!

By jcworsley

The crossword and bee are mostly fantastically implemented. Only complaints: 1) crossword archive sometimes loses history until you click through to a puzzle which was shown as unsolved but suddenly fills in, and 2) the world is unplayable on my iPad with magic keyboard as it only presents in portrait mode. Wordle works fine in landscape via the web. What gives? 😄

Crowded design

By 00742668842

I love the puzzles obviously. It’s mildly infuriating to accidentally press the blue “switch direction” area when I’m just trying to enter letters on the top row of letters in the keyboard. It would be so easy to just move that thing up a wee bit on the screen so this doesn’t happen.

Not all games showing

By Jus d'Orange

Update: 2022-09-06 Wordle is now in the app, but the developer forgot to create a landscape mode for Wordle. On the iPad, this app can be used in landscape mode except for Wordle.
