TigerText Lets You Get Rid of SMS Messages at Will

By: Robin Raskin | December 6, 2010 (Featured on Mobile Apps Showdown/CES)

The average teen may send hundreds of texts a day but they’d be getting much more out of their efforts with TigerText. This app provides many features that standard SMS does not, including allowing a user to send text messages or photos that automatically delete off both the sender’s and receivers phone after a selected period of time. It also sends 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. Clearly, this application makes text messages much more private and ethereal. I’m sure we could all think of millions of dubious ways to use these features, but there are plenty of great reasons to have our texts evaporate after they’ve fulfilled their mission.
