Skim just got much better – introducing version 2.0.
Skim is an intelligent app that analyzes huge quantities of text and rapidly extracts the most frequently used words.
These keywords are then displayed in an awesome graphical representation. This Cloud tells you, in the blink of an eye, what the main themes are in a text that could be hundreds of pages (or simply a few paragraphs) long.
Here are several situations in which Skim proves to be a great tool:
-Analyzing a song, book, or poem, and demonstrating the frequent use of certain words.
-Analyzing a political speech to see which words the speaker is over-using.
-Analyzing an article to get an idea of its main themes before you actually decide to read it.
-Visualization of any text.
Indeed, the possibilities are endless.
The fact that Skim is blazing fast (speeds of up to 50,000 words per second) means that you could, literally, save several hours a day by Skimming texts, rather than actually reading through the entire material.
Skim's ability to export your beautiful graph as an image means you can easily insert it into a virtual presentation, to prove your point to an audience. If you don't like the default colors and fonts, just customize them !
As if this wasn't enough, Skim can also export your Cloud to Facebook and Twitter; you could also email or message the image to your friends and colleagues.
