Textal, A Free SmartPhone App for Text Analysis & Other Concordance Programs

This notice regarding Textal comes from ProfHacker on The Chronicle of Higher Education. It is only available for iOS, so I am unable to test it, but it looks interesting as a textual analysis tool.

More info on their website.
There have been other textual analysis or concordance type tools around for a while. (Online, try Text Analyzer or Textalyser or see this list.)
Accordance, BibleWorks, and Logos can all create concordances of texts in their databases. I also know that Logos can create a Wordle type of word analysis diagram using the Passage Analysis tool. (Expand the "Interesting Words" entry and choose either English or Greek.)
