Example Applications


CROSSWORDS

Crosswords can be frustrating, but a little help sometimes goes a long way. That's where Word Puzzle Pal comes in. When the right word is just on the tip of your tongue, you can now view a dictionary list of words which might fit the puzzle. Word Puzzle Pal works only on letter patterns, never on word meanings, so there's still plenty of fun left in your favorite pastime.

Uppercase A = "-bcd-fgh-jklmn-pqrst-vwxyz"  (consonants)
Uppercase X = "abcdefghijklmnopqr-tuvwxyz"  (not 's')


ANAGRAMS

Rearranging letters to make different words is a key element in many 'cryptic' crossword puzzles. Word Puzzle Pal lists all the words it can make from a given set of letters, and prints the word in uppercase if it uses all the letters provided.

CRYPTOGRAMS

Cryptograms are challenging word puzzles in many daily newspapers, in which the alphabet is switched around before a sentence is written. The usual approach is to guess at common short words until the rearrangements make sense. Word Puzzle Pal begins with the longest words, and gives you a list of what the dictionary might suggest.
