Literate Software Across Lite

Literate Software Across Lite

Across Lite is a game app developed by Literate Software LLC for crossword puzzle enthusiasts. It employs the portability of the iPad tablet to mimic the feel of conventional crossword puzzle solving on paper. The user interface even looks like the printed crossword puzzle. This app allows players to adjust the level of difficulty of every game. But to help every gamer complete the set, Literate Software also introduced the patent-pending SmartMove for easier scanning of the clue list. There are different modes of viewing the crossword layout: the keyboard and portrait. When switching to keyboard view, touching the icon at the bottom will show up a keyboard for easier inputting of answers. And when in portrait view, the clue list is displayed below the grid. Crosswords can be downloaded from anywhere on the Internet for offline gaming, provided they are in the Across Lite format.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .puz files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .puz. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
