A word cloud creator. Any text can be turned into a word cloud. Words are sized according to the frequency of each word in the text. Shapes, fonts and colors can be customised. You can adjust the frequency of words (remove some and repeat others) to customise your cloud.

Evaluation: A nice visual presentation of texts. It is a nice tool enabling creation of icons, visual messages etc. Word clouds can be made in many different languages and many different shapes and portraits, including for those who want to explore more advanced options. This is a practical tool as it immediately reveals the most prominent concepts of a text/webpage. Easy and intuitive to use, very basic IT skills required.

Cost: Free without registration
