Ratings and Reviews

Good for dictionary and pattern matching, not so for anagrams


As a dictionary it’s really good; pattern matching (eg ?ST?TCH?N?I?E = A STITCH IN TIME) also good.

Anagrams: it only shows you anagrams which match words in its word list exactly. So, searching for BRITNEY SPEARS and choosing ‘anagram’ gives ‘Presbyterians’; searching for BRITNEY SPEAR and choosing ‘Anagram’ says ‘no words found’. Not great for when you’re trying to use this to generate anagrams yourself.

Chambers Dictionary 2014 (13th edition)

Jake from Leiston

This is great.

Being a Listener crossword solver this is indispensable. Having access to this edition has sped up my solving time considerably. Long gone are my days of thumbing through the hardback edition. This even has an anagram solver too! Sheer bliss!!

All thats needed now is the Chambers Crossword Dictionary which works the same way this app does. (As far as I know its only available in the iBook form {3rd edition}).

However, solvers of such puzzles, Listener, Magpie, Azed et al, will not be disappointed with this purchase, it is extremelly good.

Thanks for making this app guys. Im very happy. :) :) :)
