In this world of 140 character Tweets and 160 character text messages (for those of use who are still trapped in the past) we all find it necessary to condense our thoughts from time to time. For the long-winded, like me, this is an important daily exercise that constantly reminds me I could be texting/speaking/communicating more efficiently, and encourages me to cut out unnecessary words and, I'll admit it, sometimes punctuation. If you can't be bothered to look over your text messages or, God forbid, edit your tweets for brevity, have no fear, the Trimit iPhone App is here and it will automatically maim your text to fit character limits by rmvng vwls & adding abbr.s 4 u.
Trimit has a wealth of functionality to help you not only butcher your own text, but also that of others. The Trimit interface consists of a text box where you can type in your own text or import text from a url. After that, you can open up the settings and make a few choice decisions like whether or not you want Trimit to use abbreviations and eliminate vowels, and also how far you want the text condensed; there are specific buttons that correspond to the character limits of things like tweets or Facebook statuses. After you've taken care of that, just shake the phone and the words will be ground down into the equivalent of juice concentrate.
