Like the smell of coffee which is at once intoxicating and revolting, The New York Times Crosswords iPhone app is both the best and the worst. Extremely addictive, fun, challenging and headache-inducing, you’ll curse your public school education while your beloved partner-in-solving curses his private school education as you lay in bed at night trying to solve the day’s puzzle. Instead of peacefully falling asleep, you’ll either a) angrily fall into slumber after not completing the day’s puzzle or b) exhaustedly fall asleep after staying up way too late to solve said puzzle. Fueled by mudslides and martinis, you’ll play with your friends, harnessing group brainpower, cheering when you solve one measly clue, drowning your sorrows in the liquor of life when you can’t come up with the last letter of a four-letter word (d*mn you, Gray Lady!). Are you ready for that wordy? Click here to read all about it and to download the (free) app, if you dare.
