Whirlwind WordSearch Lite

Version 4.4.3

Word search puzzle maker.

Whirlwind WordSearch Lite overview

Whirlwind WordSearch Lite is a powerful and easy-to-use word search puzzle maker. It creates uniquely engaging word search puzzles from your own lists of words... in many different languages! You will be building and printing professional-looking puzzles right away. Although this "Lite" version has some reduced features, you can still build and print quite a range of puzzles. And you can buy the full version when you are ready to access all the extras.

You can choose from different built-in puzzle shapes, and the puzzles can range in sizes from 9x9 to 12x12 letters (4x4 up to 50x50 in the Full version.)

Make your puzzles stand out by choosing your own fonts and colors for the title, puzzle-letters and grids.

It is not just a pretty puzzle though, there is a powerful puzzle-generator under the hood. Quickly change the "Difficulty to Solve" setting to create easy or difficult puzzles.

Any randomly-created "naughty words" are detected and removed (in all supported languages), offering classroom-safe puzzles.

Here's a list of features that present Whirlwind WordSearch Lite as an outstanding puzzle-generator. Compare these features against ANY word-search software you are using now…

  • Create puzzles in any font, upper or lower case.
  • Choose from two of the many built-in shapes in the Full version: Square, Circle
  • Supports many languages/alphabets besides English... You can create puzzles with words in French, Spanish, Swedish, German, Russian, Japanese (hiragana and katakana), Danish, Hungarian, Romanian, Turkish, Greek, Sanskrit, Dutch, Ukrainian, Catalan, Portuguese, Czech.
  • Simply increase the difficulty slider from "Easy" to "Difficult" and the software automatically adjusts many subtle aspects of the puzzle, changing how tricky it will be to solve. This lets you quickly fine-tune your puzzles so they are appropriate for early learners or puzzle savvy adults.
  • Create puzzles ranging in size from 9-by-9 up to 12-by-12 letters ("full/paid" app can make: 4x4 to 50x50)
  • Supports Dark Mode and Full-Screen mode.
  • Add "hidden words" into your puzzle that are not in the word list or answer key (for adding copyrights or extra credit words.)
  • Work without a net... You can run Whirlwind WordSearch anywhere... you never need an internet connection to create, save, and print your puzzles.
  • Tailor the display and printing options to suit a variety of audiences and needs.
  • Includes a comprehensive User Guide that contains tutorials and tips and describes every option, getting you up-to-speed right away. Advanced features are explained, helping you create high-quality puzzles.
  • Copy and resize the puzzles and answer keys (as PDF graphics or text) right into your own newsletters, worksheets, books, or other publications, or print them for handouts.
  • A built-in spell-checker alerts you to any misspelled words in your word-list before you print.
  • Whirlwind WordSearch thoroughly checks the final puzzle and removes any randomly-generated duplicates of your words.
  • Whirlwind WordSearch also removes randomly-generated "naughty" words in your chosen language!

What’s new in version 4.4.3

Updated on Mar 29 2022

  • Two new shapes added, Trapezoid and Oval (an egg just in time for Easter!)
  • Minor additions to naughty word lists.
  • Changed PUZZLE WIDTH/HEIGHT sliders to have discrete tick-marks.
  • Added key equivalents to the Export Puzzle (cmd-option-1) and Export Answer (cmd-option-2) menu items.
  • Better error message text explanations for letters that don't match the chosen language.
  • On MacOS 10.14 and newer, when you choose "Help:Rate/Review", it will go directly to Apple's easy little rating popup thingie, instead of opening the AppStore page for Whirlwind.
  • Minor user interface cleanup on aisle "Page Details".
  • Increased Preview background whiteness so it looks better in Dark Mode.
  • Changed the Intro screen shadows on example images to be the user's "Accent Color", so it looks better in Dark Mode.
