    "Simply the BEST! A must DOWNLOAD! great for all WRITERS"

    November 17, 2013  |   By BoySoloist

    Version: McGill English Dictionary of Rhyme with VersePerfect 2.0

    Pros

    Easy to use and no hassles whatsoever! great for all writers alike. Even famous writers can use it. Thank you Bryant McGill!

    Cons

    Simply put it. There's nothing wrong with this program at all!

    "Have admired and loved this program for years"

    December 31, 2012  |   By Tasiturn

    Version: McGill English Dictionary of Rhyme with VersePerfect 2.0

    Pros

    A brilliant piece of programming.
    Very comprehensive but still simple to use.
    Not aware of anything similar.
    If only some of the costly dictionaries were so bug-free.

    Cons

    I don't get enough opportunity to use it.

    Summary

    To those who mistakenly bemoan alleged "bloat" in recent versions of VersePerfect, I'd warn them never to use any version of Microsoft Office post Office 97.

    I'm also not a fan of Hyperbolic Thesauruses but, given how inane and how fashionable they are, it's nice to have someone do this nonsense for you if the need ever arises. Full marks for that!

    Otherwise, everything's spot on. It's a brilliant and clever piece of software. I'd expect it to cost hundreds of dollars and therefore not be available to the non-specialist user if it weren't free.

    As with the writers of the free "WordWeb" dictionary (which now pronounces words for you), these people deserve to be featured in the very limited ranks of computer sainthood.

    Suffer Microsoft unto them!

    "Three years old, due an overhaul"

    December 12, 2011  |   By deepp123

    "Free is nice"

    May 13, 2011  |   By crossnotes

    Version: McGill English Dictionary of Rhyme with VersePerfect 2.0

    Cons

    Confusing to work with a bit.

    "Great product! I'm a writer, and it helps me a LOT"

    April 13, 2011  |   By gabjag

    Version: McGill English Dictionary of Rhyme with VersePerfect 2.0

    Pros

    none so far

    Cons

    Would be nice to have an option of interweaving the McGill English Dictionary of Rhyme into Word 2003 or Final Draft or even weaving it into the internet (for writing this review, for example).

    Summary

    Would be nice to have an option of interweaving the McGill English Dictionary of Rhyme into Word 2003, Final Draft or even the internet -- but knowing how much LESS stable Word, Final Draft and/or the internet could become if this option was used by many people - each with different expectations and different perspectives -- I can now understand why they chose to keep the McGill English Dictionary of Rhyme an independent application.

    "Without hesitation, I highly recommend this product!!!!"

    January 25, 2011  |   By ivblackward

    Version: McGill English Dictionary of Rhyme with VersePerfect 2.0

    Pros

    This recommedation is given for the following reasons: it is very easy to use and reflects the author's intuitive understanding of the needs of its users, the thesaurus is outstanding, even superior to software such as Word. And the price...

    Cons

    What's up with the "hyperbolic thesaurus" ? Seems like an unnecessary addition of "fluff" to the program. Perhaps those lines of code could have been better used for some other feature.

    Summary

    Get it now and God bless Cnet as the provider of free software without all the predatory crap you get from most "free" software sites!

    "Excellent tool"

    September 1, 2010  |   By c62ru71

    Version: McGill English Dictionary of Rhyme with VersePerfect 2.0

    Pros

    I like it that all tools u really need r n 1 window, no toggling. I've written 4 poems w/out leaving the app. When i needed add'l resouces I used add'l apps. Verse forms encourage more poetry research & knowledge. Samples r xtra learning bonus.

    Cons

    I would have liked for the verse forms to be given the proper form name.

    "Good---but quite bloated now"

    August 31, 2009  |   By vestige

    Version: McGill English Dictionary of Rhyme with VersePerfect 2.0

    Pros

    It's free. Can't complain about that.

    Cons

    This used to be a comprehensive, easy-to-use program without lots of unnecessary bells and whistles. Unfortunately, ver. 2 adds a text editor, online lookup services, alternate viewing modes, and lots of other stuff---and a very confusing interface.

    Summary

    This is a good example of the concept, "less is more."

    It's always a temptation for software developers to add more and more features, just because they can. This app has become so complicated, I think the average user---say, a songwriter who's just looking for rhymes---will find it overwhelming.

    Maybe the author will realize that a good rhyming dictionary doesn't have to be all things to all people, and resume offering a simple, effective version of it as well.

    Meanwhile, my advice is: Try to find a copy of version 1 and use that instead.

    "Pretty good. Could be better."

    March 27, 2009  |   By Seamus15

    Version: McGill English Dictionary of Rhyme with VersePerfect 2.0

    Pros

    It has a rhyming dictionary, a rhyme scheme, and a syllable counter.

    Cons

    The rhyme dictionary has way too many entries (some of which aren't even words) and shouldn't have names. It makes it hard to find a good word. There's a glitch when you scroll the syllable counter and rhyme scheme all mess up.
