CrossMate Free
CrossMate Free

Free
CrossMate Free is the best free crossword solver for many reasons.
Here are the five main advantages of CrossMate Free compared to other crossword solvers:

1) Contains 55,000+ Proper Nouns, including full names, professions, nationality, date of birth and death for about 40,000 famous people and around 14,000 places, i.e. countries, cities, rivers, mountains etc. 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 filtering to narrow down on possible matches, essential when only one or a few letters are known. E.g. you can filter out rarely used words. Who has the time or patience to look through a list of 200+ matches?
3) Contains special functionality for solving cryptic clues and extensive help on how it use it.
4) Solves two word combinations and anagrams, particularly useful combined with first and last names of famous people, or when doing cryptic clues.
5) Each match informs you what it is, e.g. person, city, rare word etc.

Most of these features are not in any of the other crossword solver applications. And they are all available without the need for a constant internet connection. It is the perfect companion whilst sat on the train doing the crossword in the newspaper.

The free version contains all the functionality of the main version, but contains small adverts at the bottom of the screen.

CrossMate Free is the ultimate companion for anyone that enjoys doing crosswords and other word games. It can even be used to help with other word type games, such as Scrabble, Codewords or "Words with Friends".
Full Features List:
- Lightning fast search engine. No search button needed as possible matches are displayed instantly as you type.
- Easy to use, just provide the known letters, hitting space for the unknown ones.
- Comprehensive list of 300,000+ normal words, split into common and rare lists to help you find the right match.
- An additional list of 55,000+ Proper Nouns, i.e. names of countries, cities etc, plus first names and surnames of famous people (both living and dead), as well as Deities and Heroes from Greek, Norse, Roman, and Egyptian Mythology. Details for people include nationalities, professions, and year of birth/death.
- Finds Anagrams of the supplied letters, including two-word anagrams.
- Easy to use filters to select the word list (or lists) to be searched, to help reduce the number of possible matches that must be looked through.
- Supports double-word solutions, particularly useful in cryptic crosswords, when some of the letters can be guessed but it is not known in which word, and when searching for both names of people.

Codeword Unlimited
Codeword Unlimited

Free
Codeword Unlimited is an application to play the popular word game known as Codeword (also known as Cipher crosswords).

For those unfamiliar with Codeword puzzles, they provide a grid of words, similar to a normal crossword, but with no clues, rather a few initially provided letters, and a number in each square in the gird to indicate its (as yet unknown) letter. All boxes with the same number must use the same letter. From that information and the few initially provided letters it is possible to work out which words will fit in the boxes. Hence you are decoding (or decyphering) the numbers into letters to reveal the hidden words. Usually all 26 letters of the alphabet are used in the codeword, although not always (and unused letters appear crossed out in the keyboard).

Feature list:
1) Unlimited number of codewords!! They are created on-the-fly using the application's advanced generator engine and it's built-in word list.
2) The player decides the number of rows and columns (from 3 to 20). This allows the game to be suitable for all kinds of mobile-phones and tablets.
3) Difficultly level can be specified by the user, which determines the pool of words the generator will use. The larger the pool the greater the difficulty. There is even an early learner mode with a limited number of words, aimed at children and English language learners. The number of starting letters can also be specified. Higher scores can be obtained with more difficult codewords.
4) Selecting a square in the grid will highlight all places the same letter is used in that grid (i.e. has the same number to decipher). This is really handy and of course not possible when doing codewords in a magazine.
5) If a game is too difficult, the application provides two useful tools to help you (see below).
6) For any word in the grid for which all squares are assigned to letters, Codeword Unlimited will highlight if that word is NOT an allowed word in the word list it uses to generate its codewords. This helps you when you have mistakes in your current assignments (saving you lots of time and frustration!).
7) An on-screen keyboard means it is much easier and more comfortable to play.
8) The definition of a completed word can be viewed. This is useful if you do not know it, or you are learning a foreign language (internet connection required).
9) Choose the language of the word list, from a large range of downloadable dictionaries. 26 languages are currently available (see below).
10) Can be played in portrait or landscape mode. Just rotate your device and the display adjusts automatically.

Other similar applications want you to pay for more Codewords, but this game provides you with endless puzzles, all for free!!

Each game is assigned a difficulty level from 0 (easy) to 9 (very hard). The difficulty level is determined by the settings. Each difficulty level maintains the high scores (measured by fastest time to complete the game). The game displays the best 20 scores for each difficulty level.

If the player is in difficulty, the application provides two very useful aids. (1) The game can provide another decoded letter. (2) The game can show you potential answers for an uncompleted word. The game uses the letters that you have already decoded and displays the matching words.

Dictionaries available are English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Arabic, Bulgarian, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Finnish, Greek, Hungarian, Indonesian, Polish, Norwegian, Romanian, Serbian(Latin), Serbian(Cyrillic), Slovak, Slovene, Swedish, Turkish, Ukrainian and more coming later...
