Top game and puzzle word finder

Stellar! Great reference tool. I've been seeking, trying, and using anagram apps since the iPad1. Anagram Solver is incredibly well conceived, designed, and executed. No learning curve. No games. Actively maintained, which is unusual for anagram apps. 😍

This is the best of these apps that I've used, again since iPad1. A full set of highly and easily useful search options. One search box and instructions for each option are visible on one interface/page so you can quickly find which option you want by reading brief simple instructions.

No struggles in usability.
Many other apps struggle to offer similar multiple search features but they're offerings are limited or too complicated: require memorizing formulas and flipping back to instructions - so extremely tedious! 😬

I'm an avid word game, puzzle player, and word lover. I like Scrabble, crosswords, scrambles, - when I'm practicing, curious, or seriously stuck this app makes takes frustration to fun. I love accessing definitions, wikis, and exporting words. It's a lexicon builder and learning tool supreme.
Otherwise it's cheating, but so satisfying!

To Dev: big thanks for creating and maintaining a fantastic app.

Anagram aid!

This is a simple straight forward app that will get the answers for you super quick! I store it near a couple of my word games, do when I'm completely stuck, I can quickly jump over to it and enter the letters so I can quickly see what my brain wouldn't allow me to see! Results are listed from the words with the most letters down through to the bottom of the list where it ends with two letter words. The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five is that on one or two occasions I've found an offbeat word in the list that I was sure was the word I needed for my game, only to return to my game to enter it only to have it tell me that it's not a recognized word . It makes me wonder if the program just lists every possible combo of letters it can without regard to correctness or not?? That's OK, it doesn't happen often but it certainly makes me think I've lost my mind on occasion.......overall a great free app that will help you out of a jamb easily and quickly!

Now if someone would design a program to play Anagrams (the game) I would love it but I've not seen it to date.

The best!

I'd been using an anagram app for a number of years that is no longer supported on iOS 14 so, in searching for a replacement, stumbled onto this one. It is so much better, I can't believe it! The previous app listed words in random order and I frequently had to watch ads while using it. (Annoyingly, there was no way to purchase an ad-free version.) This app has unobtrusive ads and is highly customizable, allowing you to find words easily. I can't recommend it highly enough. (I'd also recommend turning off ads to support the developer.)
