This looks okay, if all you want is a finely-tuned bunch of word lists. Might be worth fifteen dollars if your own vocabulary is limited — examples presented in the on-line demo range from ultra-obvious to childish, okay if you’re doing a goofy novel or a Sesame Street jingle. I asked dev about actual writing tools; he replied that MW is “definitely primarily a reference tool rather than a pure writing tool.” Caveat emptor.

Still can't get my head around the $200 price when Rhyme Genie 4.0 is $25 and does nearly the same thing. At least check out the competition before you part with your hard earned. If it was $35 I'd buy it. At which point the developer has a conniption arguing that he spent a lot of time developing the app. Yep, heard that one. Developer's argument. Customer's argument is, 'What does it do and how much is it?' What it does is pretty much the same as the competition for EIGHT times the price. It is a good app - possibly a great app, but WAY overpriced.

I looked at the web site. Apparently and somewhat interestingly the main feature set seems to be a somewhat comprehensive "grep" of words and phrases from all sorts of categories one may plough through in search of descriptive substitutions for words etc. Nice, but seems a derivative form of creativity: guess it is a child of some music composition software, but I don't think John Lennon used it (for example). There is no mention on the site that I could find of the actual word processing abilities of the program. Yeah, way over priced unless this sort of word substitution is your "bread n butter" I suppose or you really want to go beyond a thesaurus. Note: is was unclear to me if one had to be connected to internet to utilize fully, but from the size of the download I guess not.
