Use Cases

Software and web development

Text is one of the most frequent types of content you need to handle while developing, basically any application or website you will eventually come across some string related task.

During the development process, especially while testing, you will probably be required to test specific string sizes both in length and bytes, say for setting a validation method or specifying a field on a database.

For students

It is common for assignments to have a specific size in words or characters as a requirement. This tool can help you to be sure to meet those requirements.

Social media

With such a fast-paced world we live in, especially on social media, it is crucial to make every character count, not just that, but some social networks like Twitter have a restrictive message size.


Have an idea of how much time your speech or talk will take.

It can vary depending on how fast you speak or read, but it is a valuable indicator to adjust not just the overall time used but also the pace.
