Genn is a generator for random numbers and words. That’s it. It’s extremely simple, but it can be used in many ways.
There are three pages, that you can swipe between:
- Simple Dice Page
- Customised Random Number Page
- Random Word Page
Simple Dice Page
The simple dice page is a bit like rolling a whole bunch of strange dice all at once; from 2 sides up to 12 sides, if your screen is big enough.
- Choosing between lunch options
- Dice replacement in games
- Rambling along streets in a foreign city (Left, Right, Straight?)
- Choosing between movies to watch when no-one can agree.
Custom Random Number Page
The Custom Random Number Page allows you input the maximum and minumum number for random generation.
- Choosing menu items at a Chinese restaurant
- Choosing pages from “50000 Names for Your Baby”
- Lottery Numbers
Random Word Page
The random word page chooses different kinds of random words from an internal list. There are random nouns, adjectives, verbs, and adverbs. There’s also random primary, secondary, and tertiary emotions (based on Parrott’s Emotion Groups). As an added creativity bonus, there are some Oblique Strategies inspired by the famous list of Brian Eno.
- Breaking writer’s block
- Music composition ideas
- Attacking problems from new angles
