I need word.i.pus, from Paul Jacobs, because I cheat at Scrabble. That's the only way I can beat my wife who has Oracle Database 11g for a brain. She knows I cheat but she lets me get away with it because she also knows I won't play against her otherwise.
word.i.pus goes a long way toward leveling the playing field, at least the field I play on. Enter the letters on the seven tiles you have in front of you and word.i.pus will find the words hidden among them along with their Scrabble point values.
You also can use word.i.pus for word games that require you to make up as many words as you can from another word. I'll bet you didn't know you could make 52 words from "filbert."
I'll also bet you didn't know you could re-arrange "filbert" 150 different ways and not spell a single word. I don't know why the developer thought a randomly generated list of non-words can be a feature, but there you have it.
One thing word.i.pus doesn't tell you when you launch the app, is that its settings are in the iPhone Settings menu. I think that's a goofy omission and one the developer should address in the next update.
