Version 3.5
Review by Bjojones

Delighted - As a formal-verse poet, I love this versatile and useful app. To fully appreciate Rhyme Finder, it is important to differentiate between several kinds of rhyme. Optimal use of the rhyme strength bar depends on this. For example, for the word “vent,” the strong setting finds identicals. The second setting finds true rhymes, and the third setting finds near rhymes. The weak setting finds final consonantal rhymes. If a word has no identicals, as is the case with “jeep,” then the strong setting finds true rhymes. The number of settings varies according to the kinds of rhyme available. Sometimes you might get two kinds of consonantal rhymes at the medium and weak levels, as with the word “first.” I have noticed only one incorrect match so far, where “anemone” was offered as a 3-syllable true rhyme for “phone.” At first I thought it might have been included as an eye rhyme, but then I saw the 3 syllable count. No two rhyming dictionaries are alike, and none are omnipotent. I often consult several--including books, e-books, and websites--before finding the right rhyme. But I really wanted an offline, fully-searchable rhyme source on my MacBook Air. So when I came across Rhyme Finder, I couldn’t resist--especially for only $1.99. I'm truly delighted with how well it works!

Version 3.5
Review by sheshoer

Rhyme fginder is no help - This application cannot find the most basic rhyming words. It is very poor. Try typing in a word such as 'dent' and you will only receive three matches: indent, occident and president. I don't know about you, but I can think of at least a half dozen other words that rhyme. If you are a serious writer, stay away from this application. It is not worth $1.99.

Not ready for prime time... - If it can't find that Carol rhymes with Barrel (or somewhat close ;-), it's got problems….

Review by PaperStatues

Great, especially for songwriting - Don't mind the other poor reviews. This app is fantastic. As a musician and lyricist, this app has it all. You can filter words by how closely they ryhme and how many syllables they are. There are plenty of words that show up, you just have to adjust the filter (in response to sheshoer's review). It is definitely worth every cent I paid. Check it out!

Regional Dialect - Why Some Words “Don’t Rhyme." - I’m going to keep this post short and concise. I’ve had a great many pleasures in reading various English rhyme books, and it is to the best of my understanding that regional dialect can certainly account for some readers not finding certain rhymes, whatever their structure. For example, it’s common for Midwestern Americans to pronounce the word “roof” with a hard “oo”-sound as in “the cow goes moo.” In other regions, like Southern California, the same word can be heard in a wide number of dialects, one of which can be heard as being pronounced with a soft “o,” wherein the word sounds closely to “rough.” I hope this information helps!

Rhyme finder disappointing - Depressingly disappointing after being so hopeful. I guess it is difficult to do this right, but there must be something better than this. For instance, if you list understand, it comes up with misunderstand. Not creative. But there is very much a need.
