This app will help you solve English crosswords and other similar word games. The application uses the letters you already know to find a list of possible answers.

It has many advantages compared to similar applications:

1) Contains many thousands of Proper Nouns, including full names, professions, nationality, date of birth and death for about 60,000 famous people, plus around 26,000 places, i.e. countries, cities, rivers, mountains etc. It also knows the names and other data of 90,000 popular movies, books, comics, bands, songs, albums, works of art, deities and fictional characters. These proper nouns are essential for solving general knowledge clues, which can make up to 20-25% of crossword clues. These clues are the type that you either know them or you don't, i.e. difficult to just guess, so if you do not know a particular person you are usually stuck
2) Provides filters to reduce the list of possible answers. This is essential when only a few letters are known. For example, you can filter out rarely used words.
3) Choose the language of the word list, from a large range of downloadable dictionaries. 36 languages are currently available (see below)
4) Contains 5 different modes for help solving Crosswords, Anagrams, Synonyms, Codewords and Cryptic Crosswords. Codeword mode allows the user to specify which letters are already known (and hence not considered for the unknown letters), and which unknown letters are the same (i.e have the same Codeword number). Cryptic mode contains extra help with many examples
5) Solves "two word" answers. This is very useful in combination with first and last names of famous people. It also finds "two word" anagrams
6) View answers in multiple columns. Optimized use of screen space. Takes full advantage of size of tablet
7) Can be played in portrait or landscape mode. Just rotate your device and the display adjusts automatically
8) The dictionary also contains some foreign language words. These are often found in some crosswords. Foreign words are English, French, German, Spanish, Italian and Latin
9) Contains about 150,000 synonyms, using the built-in thesaurus, to help find the solution from the clue.

All of these features are available without an internet connection, and are rarely found in similar applications.

Other features unique to this app:

- Lightning fast search engine. No search button needed as possible matches are displayed instantly as you type
- Comprehensive list of 300,000+ normal words, split into common and rare lists to help you find the right match
- View detailed word definition of the possible answers (internet connection required)
- Link to the wiki page for famous people, places, films, books etc. (internet connection required)

No more words to decipher

This used to be a great crossword solver. But today when I tried to put in a word , all it came up with “word” or “person”, but not dr??? or whatever word I choose WITHOUT question marks. Literally all it had were words like Person, details, but not the word I was looking for.
