New York Times Crossword 3.0.1 Update
2019-07-15 Version History

Want to compete amongst friends around the Mini? We’ve launched personal Mini leaderboards which you can get to from the navigation tabs at the bottom of the app. These are *personal* leaderboards, so the only people you will see on your leaderboard are people you’ve friended. You can have up to 25 people on your leaderboard, in addition to yourself. This feature requires you to create a New York Times account. For the initial release, you can only see the leaderboard for the currently live Mini puzzle.


We’ve also updated the “Recent Puzzles” to be part of the Play tab and to highlight the most recent puzzles you have not completed yet. To see any puzzle you’ve recently played, you can tap through to see the view you’ve had traditionally.

3.0.1 fixes our top three crashers. Happy solving!


Timed competition stress you out? As former puzzle editor Will Weng noted upon retirement in 1977, “It’s your puzzle and you can do it any way you please!” Quick tips for a more relaxing solve: Go to settings to turn off the timer and use Autocheck (tap the life preserver).
