It's been quite some time since we've posted an update. This is largely because you've (hopefully) already been hearing from us every week by email.
However, this is a great opportunity to summarize how things have gone for the first quarter of our independent existence. We've added 200 new subscribers in the three months since the Kickstarter ended, and the constructors, through our revenue-sharing agreement, are earning nearly $200 per puzzle. That's richly deserved for their great work, and we have our generous subscribers to thank.
As promised, we've also added support for iPhone and iPad apps, so far including the "Crosswords" and "CRUX" programs. All current subscribers received login info by email that you can use to play on a mobile device. We're working on adding support for more apps as well - stay tuned!
We hope you also enjoyed Caleb's 21x21 bonus puzzle. Look for more bonus puzzles, always free for subscribers, throughout the year.
Finally, I wanted to let you know that we are working on expanding the website to offer even more great exclusive features for subscribers. We'll keep you in the loop on this.
If you are experiencing any problems receiving your puzzles by email, or have feedback of any kind, we would love to hear from you. We take your opinions very seriously and want to get your input. Write me anytime at datageneral (at) gmail.
Oh, and just one more thing: if you're enjoying the puzzles, help us spread the word! Tell your friends on social media or (gasp!) in real life to sign up at avxwords.com for edgy, high-quality independent crosswords. We really appreciate it!
