Thanks for solving with the NYTimes Crossword app! Here's what's new in version 2.1.1
Now you can turn on night mode for the puzzle solving screen! After you open a puzzle, tap on the settings icon to switch to night mode. Turning on night mode will darken your screen for a more comfortable evening solving experience.
#FunFact: NIGHT and MODE are both common answers (33 and 48 occurrences), but they never related to one another in the app until now.
