    Hi Folks, I'm a senior citizen who has been using the Windows OS for many years but have recently moved over to an iMac. With it I have designed and maintain 3 websites as well as using the machine for my personal correspondence.

    I have just acquired an iPad and am currently testing the Daily Mail app. I can't figure out how to access the crosswords which the paper publishes daily. can anyone help please?

    Thanks. John B (Batteneye)

    Welcome.

    It's been ages (well, more than a few months) since I had the Daily app. When I had it you just went to the page the crossword was on, and started doing it.

    If you are into crosswords you might want to try the CRUX app. I'm not normally a crossword puzzle fan (because I suck at crosswords), but I've been enjoying this one (because I can cheat like crazy). :D

    Thanks but I can't find the Crossword Section. It used to be in the 'Coffee Break' section, but that doesn't show on mi iPad.

    Oops. Just realized we are talking about two apps. I thought you were talking about The Daily. Seems there is a Daily Mail app. I'm afraid I don't know anything about it.

    I tried to go to their support page, but it just takes you to the main website. There is probably some kind of feedback link there, somewhere.

    Sorry not to be more help.
