Anagram Genius version Nine!

A major new version of your software has been released!

Version Nine involves radical improvements to almost every aspect of the software!

Some of the improvements include:

  • A completely new user interface. The user interface works in a similar way to version 8 but has been completely rewritten. The window can now be maximised to the full size of the screen and many many more anagrams and subwords can be seen at once. Substantial amounts of graphic design have been done.
  • Improved anagram generation. Hundreds of hours of extra work have been made to the lexicon and numerous improvements have been made to the anagram generation methods resulting in far better results. The lexicon is now 150000 words and phrases. (Version 8 had a 100000 word lexicon.)
  • Integration with the Anagram Genius archive. All the thousands of brilliant anagrams in the archive are now displayed by the software and you can submit your own new discoveries for consideration directly from within the program!
  • Compulsory words. Words can be made compulsory so they will appear in all anagrams. This is an extremely effective method for finding highly relevant anagrams and making anagrams of very long subjects.
  • Weeded anagrams and subword changes are preserved. The software now allows you to build up the weeded list over several attempts - even over several runs without throwing away any of your work. Changes you make to the subwords of one subject can even be applied to another closely related subject saving you having to go through the word list again!
  • Multiple custom dictionaries. Instead of just a few categories and a single "user dictionary", you can now have any number of custom dictionaries supporting a potentially infinite number of categories and even enabling some support for other languages!

There are numerous other improvements! Why not upgrade and find out what they are!

Customers of version 8 can upgrade for a big discount (see the order page for pricing in your local currency). The software is downloadable so you can have it up and running immediately.
