5.WordSift was created to help teachers manage the demands of vocabulary and academic language in their text materials. WordSift helps anyone easily sift through texts -- just cut and paste any text into WordSift and you can engage in a verbal quick-capture! The program helps to quickly identify important words that appear in the text. This function is widely available in various Tag Cloud programs on the web, but we have added the ability to mark and sort different lists of words important to educators. WordSift have also integrated it with a few other functions, such as visualization of word thesaurus relationships (incorporating the amazing Visual Thesaurus that we highly recommend in its own right) and Google searches of images and videos. With just a click on any word in the Tag Cloud, the program displays instances of sentences in which that word is used in the text. Make Word Mosaic Write a comment or poem in the shape of hearts or other symbols. Send a greeting or post to MySpace or your blog.
6.Tagul - Tagul clouds are not toys and designed to be used on blogs, web pages or any kind of sites as a replacement of ordinary tag clouds. Tagul is a web service that enables you to create gorgeous tag clouds. It is created by Alex, 27 years old entrepreneur and tech geek from Moscow, Russia. Each tag in Tagul cloud is linked with an URL and is “clickable” that enables visitors to use it for navigation. Also Tagul utilizes widely used flash platform (instead of less common java platform in Wordle) that is light weight (~50kb per cloud vs ~150kb) and stores the clouds on aCDN to deliver clouds to wide audience instanlty. Tagul has some features that Wordle doesn’t, like custom shapes selection and multiply fonts usage in one cloud.
7.Tweetcloud was born out of a project to synthesize meaning from a high volume of short messages. Our goal is to quickly show users "what's being said" across the Twittersphere or from a specific Twitter user through an intuitive interface (a cloud)

The result from Wordaizer is a (bitmap) picture: it can be saved on harddisk, and printed. The paper size is (of course) adjustable, allowing the user to save up to 2 x A0 (150 dpi print). You can save, print, post-process, copy, mail and publish it. Whatever you like, you have full control over the end result.
SUPERSIZE WORD CLOUD
You can save the word cloud (we like to call it 'wordlet') in a vector format: as a windows enhanced metafile ('emf' file format). That is a truly unique feature, never seen in any other 'wordle' application before. The 'emf' file wordlet can be enlarged endlessly as large as you want. Like real wallpaper if you like.
SAVE AND RE-USE
With Wordaizer you can save the full settings into a so-called project file. This is a small file that stores all the relevant settings that you used in your favourite word cloud. Simply re-open that file and continue where you left it and make another great word cloud.
The software is free to use, is fully functional during the grace period, after which some restrictions will apply. It's freeware for non-commercial use. Some advanced features are then only available for licensed users.
