Prism creates dynamic, customizeable visualizations of your texting history based off of the data in your iTunes backups.

You can sort, color, blend, and mix your texting history in a variety of ways to create aesthetically pleasing - and often times surprising - personalized infographics. The data is You!

All the texting data comes from your iTunes backups, and you may not realize just how much is there. But not to worry, we only extract the meta information on who and when you were texting, and nothing is ever saved or transmitted beyond your session.

Part data, part art - Prism aims to create an immersive and emotional graphical experience. It allows you to explore your closest relationships, as well as your relationship with technology, in a way that is both meaningful, and fun.

So why is it that the NSA can see your texting history (ha Ha, Prism! The name is a pun!) but you can't? No more. For the first time, Prism frees your texting data for your OWN purposes. Sure, the data is all about your life, and the conversations you have already lived. Nevertheless, we think you'll be surprised by what you can learn.

But we also understand your privacy. And at the end of the day rest assured that nothing is ever retained or transmitted. That said, you do have the option to export your creations as high quality vector images, should you desire.

And don't worry, you can always save them without the names ;)

Although it uses texting data, Prism is actually a Mac App. It runs on your computer, not your phone!

In theory Prism should run on OS 10.6+, however there are some known bugs for 10.6 (Snow Leopard) and 10.7 (Lion). Sorry!
