    I am on 1.1.4 and it's saving without a problem. Make sure your permissions are ok.

    i'm new to digital crosswords. Where do you suggest I get the files?

    Would there be any way to be able to get the files directly on the phone itself without having to get them on the computer first and then put them on the phone?

    It would be cool if on the way to work you could just tap a button and download the new file right directly on the phone.

    Most newspaper websites have crosswords and some offer downloads. My favorite is this one:

    http://www.chron.com/apps/games/xword/

    You can play it online or they offer the puz files for download. There are more but this one is enough for me. If anyone has any more or better ones link them up.

    Unless there is an obscure installer source out there with these files you will have to ssh them to your phone. It wouldn't take much for someone to create a source and have a recent "pack" get dumped into the puz folder though.

    edit: Here is another:

    that would be very cool if someone made an installer source for crosswords.

    i figured out the problem. and here is the solution for anyone else who is not able to save puzzles with iCrossword.

    On a Mac:

    1. Locate your iphone IP address. Tap on settings, then WIFI. Tap the blue circle next to your chosen WIFI network. The IP address is listed there.

    2. Open Terminal. It is in the subfolder Utilities, which is located in the Applications folder.

    3. Type: ssh root@ipaddress of your iphone (the IP address you found in step 1) in Terminal.

    4. For the password, type: alpine

    5. Then simply type: chmod -R 0777 /var/mobile/Library/iCrossword/puz

    On a PC follow the same steps, just google how to SSH into your phone.
