Megawords is a Mac utility that comes in handy to users who require assistance to solve crossword puzzles or find rhymes for their songs and poems. The application is very intuitive, doesn't need an Internet connection in order to get you the information you need, and is free of charge.
You have access to an integrated search tool with four filters: Anagram, Crossword/Wildcard, Rhyme, and Near Rhyme. The program contains more than 400 000 words, each with a definition and a correspondent pronunciation. You can copy the offered information to your clipboard or use the built-in text-to-speech technology to check the correct word pronunciations.
Furthermore, the application comes with a manual that teaches you how to get the exact results you need with the help of the built-in search tool.
In my testing, Megawords worked flawlessly and used minimum CPU resources. It immediately offered me the information I need even when I wasn't connected to the Internet.
You can find many websites that provide you with similar results. The advantages of using Megawords instead of your default browser is that the first one uses minimum CPU resources and takes a very small amount of time to offer you the info you need.
