The average person sends over 3,000 text messages per month. That’s a lot of information being sent in a short amount of time. Whether you are letting your parents know that you are going to be late or breaking up with your significant other over a text message (yes, that did escalate quite fast), the advent of texting has made it easy to communicate with one another with nothing more than a simple line of text.
With so much information on your device, wouldn’t it be nice to be able to see some data that would allow you to see how long it usually takes you to respond to a message? Turn that around and it would be nice to see how long it takes your friend Jim to reply to all of your crazy late night messages. Well, if you said yes to either one of those scenarios, then Statistexts is going to find a happy home on your Android device.
The design of the app is very simple and straightforward. No fancy graphics or distracting animations. Statistexts instead opts for a nice dark theme with colors that complement one another and make using it easy on the eyes.
When you first open up the app you are greeted with two buttons, one in the middle and one on the bottom right. The one in the middle is the main button which starts the apps data analyzing algorithms. The one on the bottom right is the menu button though it only has one setting, clear stored data. This way you can use the app and then delete all the information afterward, for those that don’t like to have too much information about them lying about.
After you click on the aptly named “Load Texts” button on front page of app, you will be greeted with a plethora of information that will give you an insight into various aspects of your texting life. From the average response time of each contact, the amount of messages sent to them to the average amount of words they use, Statistics is a cornucopia of information.
After loading up the app, it quickly showed me the number of messages that I had received and sent. It then allowed me to sort through the information using a variety of filters. To name a few; Sort by fastest response, slowest response, most positive, least positive, and most messages. While most of these made sense and we could easily see how the information could be retrieved from our messages, it was not quite clear how the app determined the positivity and negativity percentage. We assume it compares the text in the messages to a database of positive and negative words, whatever those might be.
Statistexts also allows you to click on a specific contact to be able to all of the collected data about that contact in one page. One of our favorite being the ability to see when they are most likely to respond to your message. Nothing groundbreaking but that’s the beauty of Statistexts. It does a simple task of giving you information regarding your contacts and it does it beautifully.
As we said before, Statistexts does not do anything revolutionary or groundbreaking. It takes data that is already accessible to you and just organized it is a way that is both visually appealing and easy to read. Now you can know how long it takes your friends to reply to you without you having to actually go in the app and figure that information out on your own. Information mind you that would take hours if done by hand while Statistexts does that and more in a matter of seconds. Statistexts is a fantastic, well-designed app that anyone who treasures information should download.
