Kansas City, MO September 30, 2008 -- America's #1 national newspaper, USA TODAY®, is home to one of the most popular word games, the daily USA Today Crossword. USA Today Crossword for the iPhone is a brand-new application available for download directly on the iTunes App Store. UCLICK is the #1 provider of word and number puzzles on the web and on mobile.

The new iPhone version of the USA Today Crossword features the same 15x15 puzzles highlighted every weekday in print and online editions of USA TODAY. The new mobile application features an easy-to-use interface designed specifically for the iPhone and automatically downloads new puzzles daily, with puzzles becoming more challenging as the week progresses. Users can also search hundreds of archived daily puzzles and download, save, and play anytime offline.

The iTunes download includes a special two-for-one bonus with the Uclick-created Quick Cross, a fast-action crossword designed for players on the run. Quick Cross players are given eight clues to solve a 4x4 grid in which every answer is a four-letter word, acronym, name, prefix or abbreviation. A timer encourages puzzle players to beat their best times and improve on top scores.

In USA Today Crossword and Quick Cross, iPhone users get a one-two punch of puzzle-solving fun featuring two of the most popular word games from America's most widely read newspaper.

USA Today Crossword and Quick Cross for iPhone features include:

  • Solve the same puzzles that appear in USA TODAY®
  • Intuitive and easy-to-use interface
  • Tilt screen sideways to display clues in the right or left margin
  • Track progress with organized list views by date or when last played
  • Track Quick Cross scores and number of moves it takes to complete
  • Sort, read and solve puzzle clues while keeping eyes on the grid
  • Access networked calendar archives with hundreds of puzzles
  • Save and play puzzles offline
  • Beautiful, uncluttered layout with letter and full word hints
Puzzle-loving iPhone users can download the USA Today Crossword with Quick Cross directly on the iPhone App Store for $4.99.

"Uclick puzzle creators and editors work with USA Today to bring the absolute best daily play to word games in print, online, and now to the iPhone," said Uclick CEO Douglas Edwards. "The iPhone is a fabulous device for this experience, and with both classic crosswords and Quick Cross anyone can play anytime."
