Stuck trying to unscramble words? Looking for a list of words that match a pattern? You've come to the right place. This site has the tools (word list generators, a word descrambler, a word chums cheat) to help you figure out how to solve your word woes. It's designed to look good on cell phones and other small screens, giving you an easy way to figure out what to make from your scrabble tiles.
To use the word descrambler, simply enter your tiles in the box and hit get words. It will rearrange your letters to help unscramble words and display a list of what you can make with those letters. The list will be sorted by word length in reverse order (so the word descrambler will give the longest words first). If you're using this for something like scrabble, you may want to check out our scrabble helper. This version works great for helping unscramble newspaper puzzles and homework problems.
This website was originally built on a bet. A friend challenged us to build a useful website within the course of a single evening coding session. He did give us some room on how to define useful...
I told him we exceeded expectations. A word descrambler is certainly useful! You never know when you're going to need to unscramble words. For example, what if you were on a game show. Which required you to unscramble words to win valuable prizes. I'd say a word descrambler would come in handy there. Or a good word jumble solver. Heck, even a slightly dodgy word chums cheat. We didn't build one website, by god, we built four! This humble website is a word descrambler, word chums cheat, and word jumble solver. So there - who says tools to unscramble words aren't useful? This is 'Merica! (or whichever part of the anglo-sphere you hail from.)
We had already done a couple of similar projects. For example, here's a scrabble helper we built a while back. We've also built some games such as cryptogram puzzles and tile puzzles. So we had a little code already built which we recycled into this word descrambler.
I had spent most of the day stuck in endless corporate meetings and wanted to take a break from PowerPoint and get my hands dirty with some code. By 5pm, I had decided to try to build a pocket version of a project I'd already implemented before: a well designed system for generating word lists. (the word descrambler project was finished later). After dinner that night, I downloaded a copy of the Enable word list. We had used this dictionary before for a PHP word jumble solver and a PHP word descrambler. Coding started around 8pm and the first version of the site went live by bedtime. It was explicitly designed to be used from a mobile phone - the word list and word descrambler pages were set up to automatically expand and shrink to match the size of the screen.
We added the word chums cheat a while later. There were a couple of quirks we had to solve. Most word chums cheats on the internet have a very limited design. And then we bolted on a scoring system to create a scrabble helper and words with friends word generator
And that the story of how Windows 8 (ops, I mean wordsies.com) came into existance.
