User can search English words by known letters and descriptions as well as find anagrams and word-combinations.

Cross+AThis is a multilingual version of the popular Russian program Cross+A by Sergey Kutasov and Ilya Morozov. It uses a dictionary of 159000 English words (part of them - with descriptions).

  • Anagram Search

  • Word-combination Search
    The program tries to create word-combinations using the text letters.
    For example: incredible = nice + bridle.
