CryptoQuote will show you conflicts such as attempting to use the same solution letter twice.

Latest reviews of CryptoQuote app for iPhone and iPad

Nicely done, but...
Nice interface and easy to use. Because of the newspaper version, I personally much prefer my translation to go under the crypto, so I am having difficulty getting used to it being above. But thats just me being nit picky. The daily challenge is a great idea, but needs work to prevent people from cheating. Sorry, but I do not believe that the entire leader board can solve the puzzle in under 30 seconds. But I dont know how you can do that with people having access to multi phones where they can solve at their leisure and then breeze through the solution on another phone. Too bad for people who have to cheat so much to feel good about themselves!
Not very good
The custom puzzle feature does not work on iPad. I have complained to designer with no response. Works reasonably well on iPhone but overall rather clumsy for custom puzzles
Great!
Just started the daily challenges. But Ive been playing this game for about five years and enjoy it. UPDATE 8/25/16 I cant play the next puzzle because the game crashes. But the daily challenges still work. Ill go back to 5 stars when fixed.
Great, except for keyboard!
I was thrilled to find such a great cryptogram app, having loved these puzzles for a long time. As other reviewers have mentioned, its got great puzzles in three different levels of difficulty, with few repeats. However, the only thing that drives me crazy is the keyboard! I know it has to be crammed in pretty small to fit (especially with longer puzzles), but I end up mistyping every letter and it drves me nuts. If the developer can work out a better solution to the keyboard problem (I should probably mention, I have no problems tapping away on the default iPhone keyboard), Ill happily give it 5 stars. As it is, Ill keep playing and having fun with the app, I just wont bother trying the daily time challenge... Just too frustrating when I cant hit the keys I want.
Deal!
Favorite $0.99 game. Very easy on your battery -- if you have your backlight turned down -- great game to play anywhere.
