CleverDic Pro v1.01

A new release of CleverDic Crossword Solver Pro v1.01 will be available from 1st Oct 2016.
The free ad supported version will be available from 4th Oct 2016.

It has been a long time since the last update but all good things take time and there are plenty of exciting new features.

Material Design User Interface

The user interface has been redesigned using Material Design to give a modern standard Android look and feel. My goal was to make the user interface much clearer, icons are simplified and I've used large mono-spaced fonts in the query field. You can also change the font size for the results, there's even an x-large mono-space option.

The help system has been overhauled so that you can quickly scroll through the tips and interact with the tip to see it in action.

Filter and Sort Results

Often times you will hit 500 results, far too many to wade through. So I've added sort and filter options to help you refine your results.

Press the sort icon (top right) to toggle through 4 different sorts, A to Z, Z to A, by length ascending and finally by length descending.

Press the filter icon (bottom right) to set up your filters

Blank Letters

For Scrabble fans you can use + to represent blank letters

The blank letters are highlighted green

Two Word Anagrams

Previously you would enter manchester united and CleverDic would find all the 10/6 words. Now it will try to find all word size combinations.

Dictionary Definitions

You are now spoilt for choice on how to look up a word's meaning:

  • Google
  • Merriam-Webster
  • Wikipedia
  • Copy to clipboard
  • Livio's English Dictionay Offline App

You can either press the spy-glass icon to look up a word using your preferred method (as set up in the settings screen) or long press a word to bring up a menu

For those who don't have t'internet, you can download the free English Dictionary App that works offline and seems to have most words. There is a link to the app on one of the help cards.


You can access the settings screen by pressing the menu button in the top right, and tweak the app to how you like it.

I told you it was a big update :) Many thanks to all the folk who have send me feedback, kind messages and comments on Google Play... And keep them coming!

Never a Crossword!
