If you do a search and you find something other than rhymes, please ensure you select one of the Rhymes options before writing a bad review. If you have any questions about RhymeNow, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

What's New in Version 2.0
- Minor bugs fixed
- iPad ready
Loved the Free Version - Paid Version OK
The previous free version of this app does not support IOS9. Since I was satisfied with the free version, I went ahead and paid for the app. However, I was disappointed that I did not see words that should have been in the results. For example, a common rhyming word for breeze is trees. But I could not find trees in the results and yes, I did use the rhymes by syllables option. In fact, a search for the word trees resulted in the message, "Word not found." BTW - I don't quite follow logic for the sounds like option.
One last thing, I opened this app on my iPad and there does not seem to be a landscape mode. I would expect to find these issues in a free version but I was disappointed to find this in a paid version. I gave 2 stars when this could have easily been a 4-star review.
Favorite rhyme app
The last rhyme app I purchased was Rhymezone. While the database was quite comprehensive, it listed them vertically. What happens is that I had to scroll through many pages. RhymeNow is the only app that doesn't have this issue. Most of the time everything fits on 1 page, easy to see, compare, & process. Because of this, I find RhymeNow to be the best.
I work as a professional songwriter and this app is totally amazing for writing songs and poems. I would pay $10 for this app if they charged. I am so glad that the developers fixed the most recent bugs to make it available for use in the new iOS. THANK YOU FOR YOUR WORK IN CREATING THIS APP!
