An Eraser for Your Text Message Mistakes

, In , , , , ,

Where problems exist, solutions present themselves.  We’ve all sent text messages featuring pictures of one’s self, shirtless, flexing your guns with a “look at what Michelangelo sculpted” grin on one’s face, sent to someone you thought would never pass them along, or to one’s Grandma (sorry Grandma).  However, if pictures aren’t your thing, what about that explicative-laced diatribe aimed at one’s boss unfortunately sent to one’s boss because your blood pressure was so high it enlarged your fingers and you hit the wrong contact name right before hitting send?

Luckily for you, never me, there’s a new text message application for the iPhone that solves all of YOUR (not mine) problems, called TigerText.

The application lets users set a time limit for text messages, and when the time is up, the messages will self-destruct and be wiped from the original phone, the receiving phone, and the server.  TigerText is one service several famous athletes, stars of High School Musical, proponents of sexting, or your drunk best friend needed and could certainly use in the future.

The app itself is free to try (the first 100 messages in 15 days are free, and it's always free to read messages), and only $1.49 per 250 messages sent per month ($2.49 per month for unlimited messages) after that. Once you've downloaded it, you must sign up for an account and tether it to your phone (it sends a confirmation to your number), and then you can start sending self-destructing messages right away.

TigerText is currently available for the iPhone and iPod Touch (here), and is coming soon to Blackberry and Android platforms.
