Ambigram Generator Download

Jun 11th, 2009 | By | Category: News

WARNING: There is NO SUCH THING as an ambigram generator “download”.

We wanted to issue this special warning as some less-than-honest torrent sites are now reporting bogus software downloads that capitalize on the popular “Ambigram Generator” name to tempt visitors to their site. These downloads are always malware.

For example, this is one listing that reports what is “available for download”:

Ambigram Generator Downloads are Not Real!

96 Downloads to NOT try (unless you are a virus collector)

As we mentioned in a recent article, the real Ambigram Generator contains many gigabytes of data and a huge amount of logic to operate. There would be no practical way to “download” the Ambigram GeneratorThe legitimate Ambigram Generator operates exclusively over the Internet (which is the most efficient way to use it anyway).

Let’s state that very clearly, so there is no doubt:

EVERY SINGLE SO-CALLED “DOWNLOAD” OF THE AMBIGRAM GENERATOR IS BOGUS.

Yes, every one of them. There is no such thing. So, what are these downloads? They are viruses, trojan horses, malware and other types of nasty software that you definitely do NOT want on your computer.

We will immediately update this page if a legitimate download of the Ambigram Generator ever exists, but there is no such thing today.

Update: The same phenomenon has started to occur with other related phrases as well, like “Ambigram Font”. Please see our ambigram font page for more information on ambigram fonts.

The only legitimate tools for creating ambigrams are listed on our ambigram creators page.

This public safety announcement has been brought to you by Ambigram Magazine (ambigram.com).

  1. I’ve read this, at least three times, and I keep finding the so call “ambigram generator downloads”. Do you know anywhere that will actually let you design an ambigram, where you can cut and paste it or print it off? I would love to get a tattoo of one in honor of my recently deceased father, but every site I go to you have to pay for. I would love one, and was just curious. If you guys could help me out, that would be more that apreciated.

    Thank You,
    Cortnee

  2. Hi Cortnee,

    Unfortunately, since it takes literally *years* to build a real ambigram generator, no one is jumping at the chance to build one and give away the designs for free.

    If you decide to tackle the challenge, more power to you!

    However, today the ambigram generators all charge a small amount for their output to cover the costs of building the system. If you like what you see, you should really support all of the hard work by buying one.

  4. So, you want to get a tattoo… That you will have the rest of your life…
    To honor your father’s death. And you won’t pay anything at all to get it?

    Nice.
