Writer's block?

It's just an ok app!

Was looking for an app for writing purposes. Thought I would be able to type in a word and it would show the metaphor. That's not the case, it only produces random words every time you hit the refresh button. Hate I bought it now!

Good app

I did not quite know what to expect when I purchased this app. For my writing sessions I was looking for something to find that elusive phrase just beyond grasp. While this app does not exactly do that, it does fire the imagination enough to surmount those smaller writers’ blocks. It produces random phrases/metaphors that more often than not are rather amusing. The constituent words are random, but one can quite easily alter them for the task at hand. A couple of things could improve the app - the ability to store, text or transmit the metaphors that are interesting and the ability to insert words of interest. Overall, an interesting, intelligent, no frills app that does the job as advertised. Very satisfactory, considering the price.

Well, I was thinking this app would help me form some metaphors and the like. Yeah, didn't happen and will never happen. This app was haphazardly strewn together and gives you random words with no relationship to each other and then it goes a step further and produces "examples" that don't even slightly make sense. I wish I could get a refund for this crap. Here's one of the "examples":

Theosophists is a pandemic appellative ...
Umm, what?!
