Releance


We reveal only the information that matters. For relevance's sake. And for you.


That's sweet, now take me to the app!

What is this?

Relevance3 (or, if you like better, relevance tree) is a web application that intends to bring relevant information upfront. It is actually a user-friendly text mining application, which extracts information from RSS feeds (and soon from other sources such as social media, web sites, blogs).

How can I use it?

Just go to the app.

What about a Getting Started tutorial?

Are there additional resources that I should know about? Yup, try this.

Anything else?

Getting Started

We have prepared several tutorials that will get you started in no time! Never forget, we'd really like to hearing from you, whichever feedback you may have.
Enough talking now, time to learn to get and use relevant stuff!




In this tutorial you are going to learn what is this app about, what each view means and other general things.
Here you will learn about sources. How to manage them and how to add others.
This tutorial will teach you about using filters to narrow down the results based on your interests.
This section is dedicated to user accounts and user settings.
This tutorial explains category and sources customization.
Here you will learn about setting up subjects to follow, interpreting alerts and performing graphic analyses.

Additional Resources

The web app is one thing, but sometimes you seem not to be comfortable with returning to the application and adding a new source? Did you find an interesting feed or website and you want it's content crunched by our engine?

This is why we have prepared a browser extension which enables you to instantly add an interesting page, so that next time you return to the app, you'll find it ready to show the relevant information within.

The browser extensions are available for:

More Information

We guess that if you got here, then several questions came to your mind, such as...

Who did this?
This application started as a hobby project by an enthusiastic team of developers.
Why did you do it?
There is a saying: "too much information equals zero information". What good are all the websites, news, blogs, tweets, forums if you have to search for the meaningful information? We wanted to bring upfront what's relevant, without effort. Other reasons? We love to experiment and challenge ourselves. Did you know that our algorithms are designed by by us, are fast and use very few resources compared to other mining tools?
Really?
Yes. Our infrastructure is tiny for a cloud service. It means that you may run it decently using one gaming laptop.
Are you kidding me?
No we are not. If you're interested, we can discuss installing our app on your own premises.
Do you have a product roadmap?
We have a number of ideas that we are working at, but at the moment we are rolling them out based on our availability. We truly need feedback, so please feel free to contact us. Even better, you may also suggest or vote for a feature here. Each month, the most voted feature will receive a high ranking into our priorities list.
Is this just a web app?
Yes. If you think about it, all the applications running on your mobile device are actually on the web. There is little difference. For convenience, we plan to create in the very near future an application for iOS and Android. Beware though, as it will still be HTML5-based (if you don't know what's HTML5, then ignore the last sentence).
Is there a list of supported browsers and operating systems?
Our application runs best on Chrome, Firefox (3.5+), Internet Explorer (8+), Safari.
Basically any desktop or laptop operating-system should work. For mobile devices, we conducted tests mainly on Android.
Any limitations?
We do not support small screens (phones) yet. When accesing the app, please use at least a 7-inch tablet.
I'm a developer and I'm interested in an API for accessing your analytics.
You can get more information on our web services here.
Is it free?
For private users yes. Enterprises should approach us directly if they plan to use our service for (direct or indirect) commercial purposes. Please see our terms of use. By continuing to use the app, you agree to the specified terms and conditions.
