Hemingboard for Mac Instantly Suggests Synonyms, Puns, and Rhymes
OS X: Hemingboard started out as an iOS keyboard that works like an extended thesaurus, offering not only synonyms for everything you type, but also rhymes and similar-sounding words that you can use as puns. Now they have brought their word game weapon to your desktop.
The new desktop tool works roughly what you’d expect: it’s in the menu bar, and when you scratch in the back of your head to find the word you’re looking for, you can easily invoke synonyms to improve your writing from normal to – let me check out my thesaurus – adequate . Easy access to a library of synonyms is the most practical aspect of the app, but Hemingboard is best known for its punning vocabulary. As someone who makes bad jokes on a regular basis, I can attest that it’s quite fun and rewarding, but you don’t suddenly become Shakespeare if you don’t add a little wit of your own.
