You can enter a word and see all of the different words that rhyme with it. A great app that any poet can use.

    Poetry Notes

    by Gatsby's Light

    Poetry Notes is one of the many apps used to analyze poetry. A disclaimer must be made here. Most poets don’t really analyze poetry and do the things you have to do in school. Poetry is about more than form and intellect in its writing. It is about heart and things that cannot be analyzed through the traditional tools such as these. With that said, Poetry Notes is a great tool. It does cost $0.99 per poem that you want to have analyzed. The analysis is a good one and you’ll discover some cool things about the poems. A great app for poets that are interested in analysis.
