TigerText, the worldwide leader in private mobile messaging, today announced the release of delivery and read notifications across its network. TigerText also announced the availability of the app on the new Windows 7 mobile operating system. TigerText is the only messaging network to offer these features to all iPhone, Blackberry, Android, and Windows 7, iPad and iPod Touch devices.
TigerText gives users an impressive set of message enhancements such as delivery status and read notifications, message lifespan, as well as the ability to send pictures (with PDF transmission coming soon). TigerText goes beyond other mobile communications rivals with its wide array of sender controls that ensure privacy for everyone using TigerText.
“We are pleased to be the first and only network that gives users delivery and read notification on all messages and platforms. We are also the only company that allows users to send pictures cross-platform while giving senders control over the lifespan of their pictures and messages,” said CEO Jeffrey Evans. “This is yet another step in our quest to be the only mobile network to stretch across all smart-phone platforms.”
The TigerText app has proven to be very sticky. The average core user of the app opens it more than 20 times per day. Now those users know when a message has been delivered to the receiving party’s smartphone when an orange square with a check mark appears next to the message. That icon changes to a green checked circle when the message has been opened on the recipient’s phone. There are now hundreds of thousands of people communicating cross-platforms with the TigerText Mobile Privacy Network.
TigerText launched in February of 2010 by creating a next generation mobile communication network that provides many features that SMS does not. This includes allowing a user to send text messages or photos that delete off both the sender’s and receiver’s phone after a selected period of time as well as delivery and read notifications. Once a sender selects the message lifespan (from 1 minute up to 30 days), expired messages not only delete from both phones, but are not stored on any server and they cannot be retrieved once expired. The sender can also choose other options that do not exist with current texting technology such as deleting the history of the conversation or making a text message “Delete on Read,” meaning the message will disappear 60 seconds after the recipient opens the message.
TigerText is available worldwide to anyone with an Android, Blackberry, iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, or Windows 7 mobile device.
