VisualiXit WordPlay is a word search and study tool designed for players of Scrabble, Words with Friends, Upwords, Jamble and other similar word games. It also has a second search function for those who like to solve crossword puzzles.
Using a search tool while playing against a computer or an opponent who agrees to its use (which isn't cheating) is a great way to build vocabulary, become more aware of the many combinations of letters possible and focus more on strategic placement of letters. And its fun!
WordPlay has the following features:
- Extremely fast and powerful word searching.
- Filters search results to show only those that you can play given the letters and blanks you have (with an option to bypass filtering by pressing the Shift key).
- Finds words using pattern matching and wildcards.
- Finds extensions (ways to add letters to the beginning and/or end of a word already played) and hooks (ways to add one letter to the beginning or end of a word already played).
- Allows entry of blank tiles by substituting a "?" for each.
- Fast search results for the letters and blank tiles you have plus one more letter (already on the board).
- Options for sorting and filtering the word list.
- English, French and Italian dictionaries (word lists).
- Double-click any word in the word list and look up a definition online.
- Modern interface with a choice of ten color schemes.
