Description

Crossword Dictionary is a complete dictionary and thesaurus. It's specifically designed to help you solve crossword puzzle grids and play word games like Scrabble®. Completely rewritten in 2010, it now features six modes: browse, crosswords, Scrabble®, anagrams, random and favorites. Find a needle in a haystack — whatever the haystack!

In crossword mode, if you need a six letter word that ends with a "G", type in ".....G" and the search engine will list every matching word. Specify some optional hints and the result set will be limited to the most relevant matches. While the app can't think in your place, the crossword helper is a definite plus when solving your daily grid.

In addition to being a great word game tool, Crossword Dictionary functions as a regular dictionary that lets you browse words freely. It also helps you find words beginning with or containing specific character strings.

Crossword Dictionary includes an exhaustive corpus: it contains over 83000 terms, over 87000 definitions and 25000 thesaurus entries. It includes regional variants of many words: color, colour, flavor, flavour, tire, tyre, etc.

Crossword Dictionary has all the data it needs to function autonomously without an internet connection, which makes it a perfect travel companion. If you do have an internet connection, you can research a word further by simply touching the designated area present in every definition. You can also share your knowledge with others by emailing definitions.
