There’s something special about the human condition when words and emotions can be woven together in song.
My musical ability won’t get me many sold out concert appearances (unless I stand in line and pay), but I can dream. And use my Mac to help fulfill a fantasy. All that’s needed to begin your road to song writing or poetry fame is your Mac, a little time, and an app that’s just begging to turn you into a celebrity.
What? An app? Yep.
Instead of worrying about talent or experience, use Rhyme Genie to create your poetic literary masterpiece, or the future of rock ‘n roll.
Alright, my tongue is firmly planted in cheek, but Rhyme Genie does have a place in your creative toolkit.
This Mac dynamic rhyming dictionary has over 300,000 word entries, with over 170,000 phrases, plus 35,000 proper nouns, and 48,000 titles for charted songs (which isn’t much, considering the iTunes Store has over 13-million songs).
What Rhyme Genie does with all those words and phrases is make it easy for you to be creative with words, whether poetry or song writing or simply an attempt at being literarily cute.
Just enter a phrase or word to find words that match your criteria. A one syllable rhyme can be easily changed to a multi-syllable rhyme (and all the optional near rhymes).
There’s more to this point and click method than meets the eye. Rhyme Genie brings over 9-million phonetic references and you can choose from 30 different types of rhymes. Check these out:
Additive Rhyme, Alliteration, Amphisbaenic Rhyme, Apocopated Rhyme, Assonance, Broken Rhyme, Consonance, Diminished Rhyme, Double Assonance, Double Consonance, Elided Rhyme, Family Rhyme, Feminine Pararhyme, Final Syllable Rhyme, First Syllable Rhyme, Full Assonance, Full Consonance, Half Double Rhyme, Homophones, Intelligent Rhyme, Light Rhyme, Metaphone, Pararhyme, Perfect Rhyme, Related Rhyme, Reverse Rhyme, Rich Rhyme, Soundex, Trailing Rhyme, Weakened Rhyme
I studied poetry in college and that’s more rhyming types than I knew existed.
What else can Rhyme Genie do?
Not only can it benefit songwriters, but it’s good for copywriters and anyone claiming to be a wordsmith. If you write, you need tools. A good dictionary is a must. So is a rhyming dictionary. It would be cheap at twice the price, but at half that it’s still a bargain.
