Hey, the iPhone app is 100% working again. Go update if you’re still having problems.
Sorry I took so long. Initially I thought I’d fixed it but it turned out to be something else, a real iOS gotcha involving looking up words in the background while you type in the box. But it’s all good now. Keep rhyming.
iOS 6 came out yesterday. Thanks to everyone who reported it to me! I’ll find some time this weekend to take a look at it.
This is the price of being an early adopter . Also maps.
At my friend Momoko’s suggestion, here’s a Wordle diagram of the top rhymed words in B-Rhymes from June and July this year. It seems to have stripped out some more common words like ‘me’ and ‘you’. Anyway click to bigify.

Wow, B-Rhymes Pro just received the best app store comment ever:
I needed this thing to write a heart breaking poem and man did it deliver! This app is great! Talk about doing what it says! It brings up words I didn’t even know I knew! Excellent app. 5 stars.

Thanks a lot “T Head”! I am really happy people are getting such use out of it. I’d love to see what these poems and lyrics are like. If anyone has any lyrics or poetry they’ve written with the help of B-Rhymes, I encourage you to send me some.
New words! Including Nintendo, Adidas, diabolical,ganja, hiphop, Rambo, xbox and more.
Corresponding app updates coming soon.
I should note that all these words are ones that people tried to rhyme, but couldn’t find.
Check out this nice little review on Palm Sounds:
I added some pages that are basically a list of all the words in B-Rhymes:
B-Rhymes Rhyme Index
This is supposed to help me with Google, but you might find it interesting too.
In the past 2 weeks, I’ve updated both the Android and iPhone (both free and pro) B-Rhymes apps. Lots of improvements in both so check them out in the Android App Market and iTunes App Store respectively.
Added about 400 new words to B-Rhymes slant rhyme dictionary, mostly based on what people are putting into B-Rhymes and not finding. In addition to a lot of past tense and -ing verbs I added a names of people, places and things, including but limited to:
barack, obama, bacardi, beckham, dianetics, eminem, facebook, ferrari, lakers, lamborghini, lebron, nasdaq, rolex, twitter and wutang.
Also added some culture words like:
bboy, beatbox and parkour,
These are all things that people have tried to rhyme with B-Rhymes. What else should I add?
In other news, the B-Rhymes android app is up to 26,500 downloads! And iPhone and iPod Touch users are are really appreciating the fast offline access in the B-Rhymes Pro iPhone app.
