Keyboard is annoyingly narrow on my screen. However, an even bigger problem is how ambiguous the clues are. For example, when the answer was "Green", the clue was "Colour(5)", but "Brown", "Black", and "White" could also all fit. It's really annoying to have to figure out a word from a one-word clue, and this essentially turns it into a trial-and-error puzzle, instead of a crossword. Instead of "Colour", perhaps it could be something like "The colour of leaves". A short description or explanation, instead of one word that helps none. Another example is "Decease", which is a verb, but the answer was "Death", which is a noun.
