|It's been a long time since I've posted about one of my crosswords*. But instead of just another "hey look at the crossword that I made" post, I'm spicing this one up.
Through some investigation and lots of dinking with my new not-a-phone apps, I've figure out how anyone can do MY crosswords on their smart phone! (I'm currently working under the assumption that no one does them because it isn't overly convenient to print up a PDF)
Step one: download Shortyz to your smart device (I know it is available for Android but probably for iOS too). Or there might be other apps that support the .puz format ("Crosswords" for the iPhone/iPad is one).
Step two: go to crossword section of the games page and look for the puz link (which currently only exists for the most recent two puzzles).
Step three: click and start doing enjoying the wonder that is a homespun crossword.
All crosswords are also available in an html format and a PDF format for printing, so no mobile device is necessary. So if you're a crossworder, dive in. And if you see something you like, let me know. The biggest thrill* of creating crosswords is knowing that people do and enjoy them.

I've done a little searching around and haven't yet found a free iOS app that allows for loading of one-off .puz files. (The paid version of "Crosswords" does as well as a few other paid apps. If anyone knows of a free one, let me know!*
