'Txtwr' is a web application that tells users how long to wait before replying to a text message. When texting someone new, many people worry that replying quickly may make them seem too eager. Txtwr solves this dilemma by telling users how long they should wait before replying to a message.

The app was designed by Albert Chang to help young people navigate the complexities of communicating with someone new via text messages. In order to use the app, users must begin by answering questions about their gender, the impression they have made on the person they are communicating with and how much they like this new person. The app will then determine exactly how long the user should wait before replying to a text message from the person they are interested in.

Although the app may seem unnecessary, Chang acknowledges that it is simply a fun tool for helping users figure out how to approach new relationships.
