Wordshore speaks some words

MeFites suggested phone answering or ringing messages, and other short texts. Some were recorded and are available through Soundcloud. In addition, a few classic MetaFilter phrases were recorded, as well as an attempt to recite several MeFite names in one go. On playback, my current accent is a slightly strange mixture of Asum and 1930s BBC English, with occasional deviations (for reasons) into Brummie, west coast Scotland and Midwest America. Make of that what you will. [more inside]

word.camera generates paragraphs from a photograph

With Clarifai, an image concept extraction API utilizing convolutional neural networks, and ConceptNet, a lexical relationship database, I built a template system to generate paragraphs of text from photographs. word.camera is responsive — it works on desktop, tablet, and mobile devices. The code behind it is open source and available on GitHub, because lexography is for everyone. [more inside]

Killer Word

Interesting instant-search dictionary app for iOS and Mac which finds words based on some of the letters they contain irrespective of order. For example you can type KQV and it will find you the only 13 words that contain all those letters (like EQUIVOKE). It's remarkably useful for word games like Letterpress (whose dictionary it is wrapped around) or for checking goes at Scrabble, or for a lot of word-related messing about. [more inside]

My Kindle word game just made it onto the Paperwhite!

I released a new word game for the Kindle earlier this year called "Throw in the Vowel". It was a real triumph to release the new Kindle Paperwhite version this month, just days after Amazon shipped out their first Kindle Paperwhites. I've been trying to teach myself Java for nearly two years, and in June I finally took over all the code-writing duties for the game myself. Now it's a real thrill to see the glowing mists in the background of our game are actually shining out from the glowing screen of a Kindle Paperwhite!

A new Kindle Touch word game!

In February I released my first game ever - a word game for the Kindle - but we've just now finished up the version for Amazon's touchscreen Kindles. (I wrote on my blog that "it was a real thrill to finally see all the letters jumping happily around the screen in response to my fingertip.") [more inside]

A new game for the Kindle!

I spent over a year building an original new word game for Amazon's Kindle. But I've actually worked another five years on the game's concept with my business partner -- who'd first shared his dream of creating a new game all the way back in 1991. "I almost wept on the day our graphic designer showed us the beautiful background illustration they'd created," I write in this blog post finally announcing the game's release. In "Throw in the Vowel," we've searched for exotic patterns of consonants -- sometimes even four N's in a row, or three T's -- and then provided the vowels which will turn them all into words. It's surprisingly satisfying to create meaningful words out of these semi-arbitrary patterns of letters. Can you "Throw in the Vowel"?

Snack Words - Real-time, multi-player word game for iPhone/iPad

I just finished my first iPhone/iPad game, Snack Words. You play head-to-head against other people, racing against the clock to find as many words as you can. I loved other games of this type (Jumbline, Word Warp, etc), but I really wanted to play with other people. Hope you enjoy!

Docvert 4.0 - Word to HTML converter

I announced the previous version back in 2006 and it's progressed quite a lot since then. Docvert 4.0 is a free web service that takes Microsoft Office files and converts them to standards compliant HTML. You can control every single tag and attribute of the conversion with W3C standards. Since 2006 it's now 3× faster because it uses OpenOffice in a server mode, and it's the only Linux based converter that can handle EMF and WMF files, as well as providing unit tests, FTP/WebDAV uploads, and lossless optimisation of images. It's also easy to use, with a simple minimalist interface. [more inside]
