Cryptic crosswords

    I've got some time off work and have decided to to finally give cryptics a proper go. Just a few days in.

    Any advice? People say "get to know the setter".. Which would you advise that is online and good for a beginner?

    I've been using an app called Learn Cryptic Crosswords and watching some Cracking The Cryptic on Youtube. Does anyone have other good interactive resources?
