N.A.N.Y. 2019 Cryptogram
« on: December 30, 2018, 09:08 PM »
Application NameCryptogram
Version2.000
Short Description A browser app to make solving the daily Cryptoquote puzzles more convenient.
Supported OSes   N/A. You just need a graphical web browser.
Web Page    http://www.jackromanowicz.com/Cryptogram
Download Link   http://www.jackroman...loads/Cryptogram.zip
System Requirements   A graphical web browser.
Author   Jack Romanowicz
Donations   Talk to me if you want to use it for commercial purposes.


Description
Cryptogram provides execution of the mechanical tasks of solving a substitution-cypher puzzle as is published in many newspapers daily. All it needs is a web browser. You can run it from a local directory -- there's no server-side processing. Just unzip the archive and point your browser to Cryptogram/index.html  I think it should be usable in your mobile device browser as well, but I only have two phones to test on.
Comments and suggestions are welcome.

Features
Auto character substitution. Undo (without having to erase!). Used character elimination. (If you've done the puzzles, you'll know what these mean. ;^)

Planned Features
Waiting for feedback.

Using the Application

Note that I have corrected a problem which occurs when you enter incorrect ciphertext and hit "Play", then correct the text and hit "Play" again. Version 2.00 appended the corrected text to the existing text in the lower part of the window. Version 2.01 removes the old text before showing the corrected text. If you are using the app, you should download the zip archive from the same place.

As before, just unzip the archive to anywhere and point a browser to index.html in the Cryptogram folder.

The new version 3.12 of Cryptogram has been uploaded to http://www.jackroman...loads/Cryptogram.zip and can be played online at http://www.jackromanowicz.com/Cryptogram

For local play, simply unzip the archive and open the index.html file in the browser of your choice.

This version has a more-compact selection dialog (which works better with mobile devices) with the already-used letters in a separate section at the bottom. Those letters can be re-used by simply clicking on them. There are also minor changes to the help verbiage and fixes for some bugs I hope no one encountered.

The MD5 checksum for the zip archive is c415d37ffe4cfed2f4712506079c793e
