A simple tool for creating tags crowd

November 20, 2009

I have tried to use very simple tags crowd generating tool Tagcrowd. You can enter information in 3 different modes:

  1. Enter an URL
  2. Upload a small file (less than 100 kB plain text)
  3. Copy-paste text excerpt to a box (if you copytext including  images – no problem) .

Then click a button “Visualize” and you get a result. I have tried to enter a Lithuanian, Polish  or Russian text. I saw tags crowd of Lithuanian and Polish text but I did not get any result with Russian text.
