Unscrambler v1.0 Beta is out.

October 18, 2010

This is the initial release of Unscrambler Beta.

Currently Supported features:

  1. Sort results by alphabet, Scrabble score, and length.
  2. Search for words using three different methods (Anagram, Pattern and Combo)
  3. Go to dictionary definitions using Dictionary.com (Long press on result to view)

Different search types:

Pattern:

  • Uses all letters in order with * or ? as a wildcard.
  • r*t returns results like rat, rot, etc…
  • Notice that all results follow the specified pattern.

Anagram:

  • Uses all letter in any order with * or ? as wildcard.
  • r*t returns results like rat, rot, tar, art, etc…
  • Notice that “tar” has a different order than the input.

Combo (short for combination):

  • Uses any number of letters in any order with * or ? as wildcard.
  • r*t returns results like it, at, tar, rat, etc…
  • Notice that “it” uses less than 3 characters.
  • Minimum and maximum length of the combinations can be specified using the sliders on the settings panel.

Known Issues:

  1. Need to add in app help. (In progress)
  2. Default minimum length of combo to the length of input if it is less than the setting. (In progress)

Other tidbits:

  1. Results are limited to 5000 results. (Do people want to scroll through more than that?)
