London, United Kingdom – trimit utilizes a patent-pending algorithm to automatically summarise (‘trim’) text to any specified length. Erica Sadun of TUAW has stated trimit is “visually gorgeous” and trimit is about to be announced on other sites such as Gizmodo.
Text is summarised into new, coherent content that is easily understandable for a reader and is in a relatively formal register. trimit uses a wide variety of heuristics and variables in editing the content to convey the maximum amount of information in the specified length. When summarising, specified filters can be applied, which include as the addition of acronyms, abbreviations, URL shortening and even removal of vowels that are not integral in the word’s comprehension.
Text can be summarised with a simple shake gesture, and edited into a length suitable for tweets, facebook status’, text messages, emails and more. Text can be directly imported from any URL right from within the app using highly complicated HTML parsing. trimit’s sharing capabilities are extensive, and are all accessible from within the app; email, SMS, facebook, twitter, printing and saving as a .txt file. The text file can then be synced with a computer, and similarly, files can be easily imported from another device into trimit’s directory in order to be summarised.
