Just a quick note of appreciation. I'm using your software for a student I teach who has many learning difficulties, but he is thrilled (and motivated) to be working with your software. Please continue the excellent work, and best of luck going forward.
Ed, Canada.

We are a homeschool family and we have been using your site for nearly 10 months now...we think you're great!

Keep up the fantastic work you do!
Warmest Regards
Sarah, New Zealand

I have been using your programs for years now and am really glad for a chance to say how FAB they are. They are better than any other I've found for educational purposes and a fraction of the price. All the kids who have used them at my school LOVE them and I think you are a very very clever man!!

If you read this Barry, I keep trying to contact you via email but I don't seem to ever get through.

Crossword puzzles date back to around 1913. It's widely believed a Liverpool journalist, Arthur Wynne made the first crossword games puzzles. These were published in the New York World and became a regular weekly feature apparently. They can range from the very simple to the very cryptic and so can be suitable for all ages. Using clues to give an idea of the word or phrase to fill in the blank squares in the grid and as the answers cross each other, hence crossword puzzle, each answer you get right, gives more clues to another answer. There are many varieties of word games puzzles and quizzes but the crossword remains a firm favourite around the world.

With the ability to exercise the mind of both young and old, the crossword puzzle is a great learning tool. With my crossword maker above, you can easily create games puzzles for students, family members from children to adults. It all depends on the level of difficulty you want to add and how cryptic you can be. Many schools and homes around the world use my crossword maker as educational software and with the ability to save them you can always return to one later without the need for trying to find the book or paper that they were in.

What's new in v1.12:
Updated with numeric option for maths crosswords.

Thanks for the TERRIFIC software at a great price!

I've been a happy Olltwit user for years - I downloaded several of your programs back in '04, for my older son to use. Now it's time for my younger son to use them, and I've come back to your site to find 1) I owe you, and 2) you have more great stuff. I'm happy to pay up because I know the quality of your programs.
