Cross+A is a software application that bundles a built-in English dictionary for helping you solve crosswords, anagrams, or other word-based puzzles, as well as create them.
It sports a clean and straightforward layout that allows you to perform search operations by letters or descriptions, and find anagrams and word combinations.
The program gives you the possibility to add, delete, or change the description of the selected word, replace words, and copy words or their description to the clipboard.
What’s more, you can import data from a plain text file and view statistics about the word length, amount of vowels or consonants in a word, all letters, and other data.
Cross+A lets you create Sudoku puzzles with different dimensions, solve and save them to a file, as well as build a wide range of logic puzzles, such as Nonogram, Kakuro, Tents, Hidato, Creek, and others.
Other notable characteristics worth mentioning are represented by the possibility to convert numbers (Arabic, Roman, and hexadecimal numeral system), launch searches on the Internet via your default web browser, and perform spell-checking operations.
During our testing we have noticed that the program carries out a task quickly, provides very good image quality, and no errors showed up throughout the entire process. It doesn’t put a lot of stress on CPU and memory, so the overall performance of the computer is not burdened.
All in all, Cross+A proves to be a reliable application that comprises a decent feature pack for helping you search for words and create various word-based puzzles.
