Yet another excellent skill brought to us by the prolific guys at Vocala.co, today's skill is an instant favourite for me. Finally, a full crossword experience in awesome audio-only form is here - and big thanks to Tiffany Black (@1modernmonster on the Twitters) for bringing it to us. I don't think it shows the puzzle on an Echo Show - or at least it didn't mention this in the description. What the description did cover, however, is a load of useful tips on gameplay, so I thought I'd include it in its entireity here:
