TigerText has introduced new texting technology for smartphones, which allows senders anywhere in the world to determine how long their communication lives on the Network, along with the mobile devices of both sender and recipient.
The new texting technology enables the sender to select the message lifespan (from 1 minute up to 30 days), and once the duration is over, the message will not be available even on a server.
The company said that the new texting technology allows the sender to 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”, which means that the message will disappear 60 seconds after the recipient opens the message.
In addition, the technology allows users to send pictures across the Network with control on the lifespan of photos, which are not copyable and cannot be forwarded.
The photo privacy feature is enhanced when the receiver uses a smartphone with a touch screen, as the picture will only be visible when the receiver keeps their finger on the screen. The image disappears with the removal of the finger, the company said.
TigerText co-founder and CEO Jeffrey Evans said that the company remains focused on giving senders the ability to control mobile communication in ways that SMS cannot.
“We believe their disruptive technology will become the standard for how consumers and businesses communicate through mobile devices,” Evans said.
“The TigerText Network offers privacy and control while creating a sense of urgency by the limited lifespan of the messages.”
The company said that the new offering is available worldwide to anyone with an Android, Blackberry or iPhone.
