The Ultimate Rhyming App


I think this is the best rhyming app on the market. I needed to replace the old Mac app "Masterwriter" after it went to an expensive subscription model, and tried everything I could find. Rhyme Genie won the competition, but it takes time to realize all of its powers and features. I recommend reading the info on the developer's website to get familiar with the controls and settings. You can start rhyming immediately, but dig deeper!

P.S. I notice that some old negative reviews for previous versions are for installation or "won't run" problems. On some older devices, some apps can be sensitive to how much memory is available when you first install. If you run into such a problem with this (or any app), try this: 1) turn Airport Mode on. 2) turn off any background programs that might be running (hold power button until the "slide to power off" shows up, then release power button and hold the 'home' button until it goes back to home screen). 3) install the app (e.g. Rhyme Genie). After installation, all should be fine and you can run your device as usual.

With the help of the excellent feedback received from knowledgeable users like yourself we were able to optimize the launch procedure to ensure a successful launch on all compatible devices. Your feedback is highly appreciated.

By far the best rhyme dictionary!

Parker holl

This app has a massive amount of rhymes. I have never seen a app that has the amount of rhymes as this app has. It's definitely the best that money can buy. I would like it if when I pressed a button that it says something like smart rhyme on/off it can be a little confusing to what button does what. It should be more user friendly. It would be nice to not have to go to go read the instructions to understand how ti use the apps.

Developer Response

Thank you for your helpful feedback and your five-star rating. It was quite challenging to bring the macOS version of Rhyme Genie to iOS given all of the features of the rhyming dictionary had to be easily accessible on the small screen of the iPhone. The help section which can be accessed by tapping on the question mark in the lower left corner of the main screen was essential to cover the more advanced features unique to Rhyme Genie.

The most convenient way to get started is a quick start video tutorial and a PDF quick start tutorial viewable at Unfortunately there is no way to integrate these into Rhyme Genie’s app page at the Apple Store which makes them not as easily accessible for iOS users as we would like.

The smart features that you have touched upon are unique to the intelligent rhyme and will activate and de-activate automatically depending on the rhyme type that is currently selected. You can select a specific rhyme type by clicking on the two small arrows to the left of the search field. The intelligent rhyme’s unique features are best illustrated when you take the following steps:

1. Make sure that the multi-syllabic option is on (center button) and replace the search word with the word ‘sensation’. You will find perfect rhyme mates for ‘sensation’.
2. Decrease the similarity in sound by tapping on the ‘≈’ button. You will be presented with useful near rhymes for ‘sensation’.
3. Tap on the ‘=’ button to increase the similarity in sound until you have reached the highest setting. You will be presented with phonetic repetitions for ‘sensation’.
4. Deactivate the multi-syllabic option. You will see all the entries that rhyme with the last syllable of ‘sensation’.

Please note that the multi-syllabic option and the similarity in sound function are most effective when the search word has at least two syllables and is feminine. As an alternative you may also select the ‘Family Rhyme’. It allows you to show close near rhymes as well as perfect rhymes all at once without having to use the multi-syllabic option or the similarity in sound buttons. This makes Rhyme Genie easier to use while still providing superior search results. Thanks again for taking the time to review the app and giving me an opportunity to make it a little easier to get started.

Great product


I’ve been using the Mac OS version of Rhyme Genie for years and it’s been invaluable in my creative process. Having to update it on the laptop and desktop all the time was getting tedious and then I saw there was a smartphone version! The dictionary comes with me wherever I go now: laptop, desktop, subway, whatever... it means I can keep the creative flow going wherever I am!
