Puzzle Maker Lite 2.9

Free
Create crossword and word search puzzles using your own words!

Puzzle Maker Lite is a simple application that allows you to create crosswords and word puzzles in seconds using the words you want. To create any puzzle, you first have to add words to the dictionary. You have to enter the word and a clue. You can create different lists of words and save them to use them whenever you want. When you create a puzzle, the program will show you different grids, so you can choose the one you like the most. It would be great if the program included some pre-made lists of words on multiple categories, so you wouldn't have to waste time creating new ones.

You can also customize the appearance of your puzzle with the Inspector. You will be able to select a border, customize position and size, pick colors and fonts, choose a title and layout. Once the puzzle is ready, you can print it empty and with the solution. You can zoom it in and out, but you won't be able to solve the puzzle from within the application.

In short, if you are looking for a simple and easy-to-use application to create puzzles to work with your students or just for your kids, Puzzle Maker Lite may be an excellent choice.
