MUNICH, Feb. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Devarai (http://www.devarai.com/), an indie developer of brain-building games and puzzles, has released its latest crossword puzzle app; Crossword is available now on Google Play, while iOS users can download Crossword Pro on iTunes. Both versions are free to play and loaded with user-friendly tools and features.
"Devarai is a Hebrew word meaning 'my things'," explains CEO Henning Dierolf. "For us, that means that our company, our colleagues, our families and every thing of importance to us inspire us to always reach higher and work for the progress of all human kind. These 'things', make us all (civilized) humans with dynamic thought. Our philosophy is linked to age-old traditions of empowerment that preceded the Protestant Reformation of 1500, in the search for the better, for the good - for truth. Language skills are hugely important in that context, to understand oneself and the world, and to be finally able to articulate one's innermost thought, therefore many of our puzzles and games focus on words and numbers."
Google has pegged Devarai as a company with "high potential," having already achieved a following of millions of players. The company's global reach is a testament to the universal appeal of word and numbers games like Sudoku, word search and crossword puzzles. Moreover, these types of games are not only easy and fun, but they build and support the kind of cognitive skills that keep minds sharp. Crossword puzzles in particular enhance not only vocabulary skills, but also improve concentration, patience and creativity.
The newest versions of Devarai's crossword puzzle apps introduce new features that are certain to keep players entertained through many hours of gameplay. Every day, the company releases new puzzles, so the game never becomes stale. Puzzles are available in more than half a dozen languages and counting. Players can hide the keyboard for a full-screen view, as well as switch between landscape and portrait modes. A single click toggles between across and down clues. If a clue proves too difficult, players can get a hint. Meanwhile, player comments and a puzzle rating system add a social aspect to the experience.
Puzzles and games from Devarai have been featured in international publications like Mac Life Magazine. Each of the company's previous games have gone on to record hundreds of thousands of downloads, while also receiving high ratings and positive reviews.
The Devarai team is currently developing a book that will present a new and important scientific theory of organization. Feedback from very talented word and number enthusiasts is contributing to the book's contents and theoretical framework. Dierolf believes the forthcoming publication will help to establish and encourage a new way of thinking in Psychology, Medicine, Theology, Economics and Law.
Founded in 2010, Devarai is a dynamic design and development company based in Munich, Germany with a passion for creating some of the best products in the digital marketplace.
