Textal will be a great way to explore the words used in your favourite book, document, website, or twitter stream. The free app - launching in September - allows you to create wordclouds and interact with them, accessing further statistics that will help you understand the way language is used.
What words are used most often? What words are used commonly in combination with other words? What patterns emerge when we visualise text in different ways? Textal will allow you to generate a range of text analysis views, which can be shared via email, facebook, or Twitter.
We’re into the final stages before we release the app for alpha testers.
Things have been quiet around here (Steve and I both went on leave for a while) but we are now getting to the final stages of making the app.
