Why it has taken so long, i don’t know, but how many times have you been burned by the “paper trail” text messages that are left on another person’s phone? Those problems could be a thing of the past with this new application called Tiger Text.
Tiger Text is an iPhone/Blackberry application that allows you to set how long a message will remain in receiving persons cellphone. It’s up to you to dictate the lifespan. You can have the message be completely erased upon reading or set it to erase itself after a few hours–how ever long you want it there.
The Catch? Well, because it an application, it isn’t technically a “text message” but more like an instant messaging client app. Tiger Text is available for free on iTunes, the first 15 days of use are free, and you are allotted 100 free messages to try out the app. After that, it costs $0.99 per 250 messages sent over a month or $1.99 per month for unlimited messages.
The application can be used between iPhones and Blackberrys for now and according to it’s inventor, they are making strides to make Tiger Text available to most cellphone brands in more countries.
