700,000 downloads now

Fun fact: EclipseCrossword's record week for number of downloads was the week of December 11: 8,660 downloads in 7 days. That's not quite one download per minute. The previous week was the previous record week, at 7,970 downloads. This is kind of surprising; I always assume that the surges would be more in line with the beginnings of school semesters, as teachers and parents are looking to provide activities for kids. But, the beginning of December is also around when final projects are being turned in, and I know that there are a bunch of teachers who are giving crossword-building assignments to students, because they've told me. So, that's presumably the explanation for this particular surge.
