The email address for submission of the weekend’s Prize Cryptic Crosswords is:
Put “DT nn,nnn” (for Saturday’s puzzle) and “ST nnn” (for Sunday’s puzzle – note there is no comma in that number) in the Subject field.
Add your name and address in the body of the email.
I find the Telegraph app team to be slower than many others to respond, and slow too to fix systemic problems.
It is a growing challenge to support multiple versions of the app that will run correctly under all versions of the OS. Testing can be even more of a challenge, albeit some problems (such as the submission one) should have been “bleedin’ obvious”. If any reader has no problems submitting via the app, perhaps they could advise the app team of the iOS version they are running.
I have noticed that the app often slows down at some random (by time and puzzle) when completing the puzzles and has to be reloaded. This seemed to start coincident with iOS 13.2. I will install iPadOS 13.3 this weekend and see whether that makes things worse, changes nothing noticeably, or improves matters [deliberate order, there 😎].
A minor irritation occurs when, from time to time, the order of the puzzles is shuffled, and there was a recent occasion when they published two copies of the Cryptic. Errors that should not occur – don’t they just insert the “code” into the same “frame”?
