If I didn't have the Treo I'd probably use it more often. I think its probably better than the 'Crossword Cafe' application as its not clear how many crosswords you get for $2.99 a month.

Unfortunately I can't test 'Crossword Cafe' as they don't have a download link- only an SMS return message system which only works in the US. Which is probably a good thing as they state on their site that you need an 'unlimited data plan' to avoid extra costs and unlimited data plans are not available from my miserable provider.

Come to think of it, if 'Crossword Cafe' are saying you need an unlimited plan, that makes me think that they probably don't download the puzzles to your machine but instead make you play online. But that's a guess on my part.
In the past I tried to get that app, but only got a bunch of random symbols when I tried to download it, that's when I found Cafe. The crosswords are on your phone and there is a new one everyday. It looks/works great on my Pearl.
