OK but can't it handle "negative words" in a context? Certain people can do some bashing even with polite words while some can be swearing at you while meaning I love you bro.

I can't believe you would do this.

Follow up:

1. You're such an ass.
2. Thank you so much man!

Positive or negative. How can an "app" discern this?

This is so freakin', gaylordishly great!

I don't want to sound like a prick but, I was happy when the computer died.

Probably Pink..

Anyways, how the apps distinguish sarcasm, "sublime" offensive message like "You're mom was too good"

And the app will hiccup on the misuse of words.

It is Your, not You're.

Looking at the graphic, the red messages read:

"Amy
Weather is good not good for tomorrow. Hope you've got a jacket"

And

"Dave B
I wave very tired and got on the wrong bus
- whoops"

Personally, I do not see these messages as relaying negative content in the sense that they are nowhere near flaming the receiver. If that is the best this app can do, then I suggest that the creators of this app go back to the drawing board and learn what negative content really is.

For me, having messages like that flagged as negative would be enough for me to stop using the app.
