I think the description for this product is a bit too much. Maybe something more like: 'Crossword Puzzle Helper is a simple utility for finding incomplete words for use in crosswords.' You don't need to go on about what it says when you press this button, and that button, etc., etc. And then afterwards, maybe a mention of the 48,000 word list. Just keep it short.

You can also use in the terminal something like:
grep ^cr.s.w.rd$ /usr/share/dict/web2

taking time typing these strange things in the terminal could be a good way to replace a pay app, but it's free !
so why ?
