  1. The Across Lite program can be downloaded for free at Litsoft.com and runs on Microsoft Windows and Apple OS X. I can recommend it unreservedly. It is easy to install and use, and is free of any of the malware garbage that commonly plagues freeware.
    I think crossword puzzles are best solved with paper and pen (or pencil for cautious types). But I can no longer use a pen, and so am very grateful the Across Lite program exists. [^]
