Crossword Solver 0.5 released

Sunday, February 20th, 2011

Crossword Puzzle Solver
Supernifty is pleased to announce version 0.5 of Crossword Puzzle Solver.

We’ve added some requested new functionality.

Custom Word Lists
It is now possible to add your own word lists to the crossword solver. Useful if you want to

  • add a new language,
  • have a particular niche set of words, or
  • just want to add something that you think is missing.

To add a word list, you just need to create a file, where each line is in the format “word,definition”.

Then click Definitions->Add… to add your definitions. It’s then easy to enable and disable the word lists you wish to include in your search.

If you happen to create a word list that you think might be useful to others, please let Supernifty know and we can publish your word list.

Ignore Spaces
Sometimes you might want to search for words and ignore any spaces. There’s now an option to do this.

Crossword Solver and all updates are free. Next time you run the software you should be prompted to update. If not, click Help->Check for Updates.

Feedback is always welcome.

Exciting news! Speed Scrabble is now compatible with the iPad. Yeeha!

Speed Scrabble iPad

To play Speed Scrabble on the iPad, just drag the letters around with your fingers to form words. Too easy!

Your iPad might just give you the competitive advantage over your mouse-based opponents… or simply a more enjoyable way to brush up on your word skills.

If you have an iPad, please try out the updated Speed Scrabble game.

As always, feedback is welcome… we are aware that the background grid can get a little messed up during play on the iPad, this shouldn’t interfere with the game play.

We hope to tweak the iPad experience in future releases – and potentially release an iPad app.

Now, go try it out! Happiness is word games
