On the internet we have at our disposal a large number of applications that allow us summarize texts easily. Fortunately, we can also find applications of this type for Android devices, although sometimes the result is much more effective on a desktop computer or using a web version.

The best method to check which is the best application to perform this function is to always check its operation with the same text, a text that is not too long and that we have previously read.
It is important to previously read the content that we want to summarize for check if all important parts have been covered in the summary and that some have not been omitted that, on a personal level, we can consider interesting since we want to deal with it in other sections of the work.
All these apps have distinctive characteristics that will allow users to make the right choice based on their needs and goals. But one thing is clear: these mobile applications for text analysis will help to get rid of the need to spend wasted time while reading and checking huge amounts of documents, reviews, news, financial articles, etc.
