    "I like this tool, it's very simple and easy to use. I think the accuracy is pretty reasonable, but it has it's flaws like any tools will. I would definitely use it again. It's simple enough that I feel like there can be a mobile app for this, and I hope they will make one in the future."

    "I was working late night on some school projects that I had to do. The problem was that I had about 10 long papers that needed to be summarized into a paragraph and each paper was about 5 pages long itself. Thanks to Automatic Text Summarizer, I was able to insert the text into the webpage and it summarized the info down for me so I could get to the points of the paper and summerize from there. It saved me a lot of time and headaches!"

    "I was excited about using this to draft queries to publishers to whom I submit short stories. In practice, however, I found that SMMRY failed to, well, summarize my story. Great concept, but it needs work."
