trimit is a bookmarklet [] and iOS app that allows you to evaluate the relevance of a webpage by providing an accurate and succinct summary of its content. trimit is the world's first automatic text summariser and simplifier for any mobile device.

trimit utilizes a highly complicated algorithm to automatically summarise ('trim') text to any specified length. Now you can consume vast amounts of text on your iOS device through utlising trimit's output, which conveys only the integral information of a piece of text.

"I’d definitely recommend that you check Trimit out." - Matthew Panzarino, TheNextWeb.
"it works well...for me to appreciate it" - Marshall Kirkpatrick, ReadWriteWeb.
"trimit is visually lovely" - Erica Sadun, TUAW.
“the edited version is essentially correct in capturing the spirit of the article.” - Alissa Walker, Fast Company.
"It then fits the most important thoughts together in the order most likely to read cohesively." - Sarah Kessler, Mashable.
"It’s impressive stuff indeed." - Jennifer Allen, 148apps.
"it’s impressively accurate." Killian Bell, Cult of Mac

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 summarisng, 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 computer into trimit's directory in order to be summarised.

trimit is compatible with all languages.

Note: Make sure to drag the view down to reveal "Slide to delete" before starting a new trim.
Note: Needs firmware 4.1 and above at the moment to work.
