Crossword Help finds words matching a pattern, synonyms and anagrams. comprehensive word lists, with words, compounds, phrases and proper nouns, mean that you should never be stuck on a crossword puzzle again.
There are three word lists provided for advanced word searching:
- Basic: 110 000 words and common compounds
- Advanced: over 750 000 words and compounds
- Wikipedia: millions of head words from Wikipedia
Word searches can include one or more unknown letters, vowel/consonant patterns, or groups of possible letters. For example, searching for T???P finds 5-letter words starting in T and ending in P. The Basic word list is the same as that used by Crossword Compiler - the program used by most professional crossword constructors.
The program also includes a full offline thesaurus: enter a complete word to show synonyms. You can easily change the length of the words shown to match the slot in a puzzle.
You can check if a word is in the word list and find anagrams. There's also a feature to find partial anagrams - all the words that can be made using the letters in a word (useful for Scrabble (TM)).
No Internet connection is required, but if you are online you can click on any word to quickly look it up in a variety of web references - turn your iPhone into an electronic crossword dictionary!
Other features include:
- Use British, American, Canadian or Australian English lexicon
- Change case and punctuation sensitivity
- Change maximum word length
