We are really pleased to announce that Textal, our text analysis app created in collaboration with the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis, is now available for download!
Textal is a free smartphone app for iOS that allows users to analyze documents, web pages and tweet streams, exploring the relationships between words in the text via an intuitive word cloud interface. The app generates visualizations and statics that can be shared without effort, which makes it a fun and useful tool for both research and play, bridging the gap between text analysis and mobile computing. We also see it as a public engagement activity for Digital Humanities.
If you have an iPhone or and iPad, please try it out and send us your feedback.
