I like the Times crossword but:
- I don't like their iPad app
- I can't be bothered to log in
- All I really want is the PDF version of the puzzle to scribble on
Happily, the PDF files offered for printing do not require a login and have predicatable filenames.
I've put together an iOS/iPadOS Shortcut which lets you pick a day and then fetches the puzzle PDF for that day: iCloud Shortcut download.
