Tiger Text iPhone App Deletes Texts After Sending

This App Encourages Sketchy Behavior

When I asked, most of you agreed that technology makes infidelity easier, and now a new app seems to basically encourage it — or at least enable it. The aptly named Tiger Text, a free iPhone app, allows you to send text messages that delete themselves after a set period of time. To take advantage of this wonderful bit of technology (can you sense the sarcasm?), both users need to have an iPhone. When one party sends a text to the other, they're prompted to download the app, and the message is displayed. After that, depending on your settings, the message will disappear as soon as one minute after reading to as long as five days after. Using the app means that the messages you send and receive aren't stored on your phone, therefore protecting your guilt/innocence.

I suppose there are a few practical applications for a service like this: sensitive personal information, business dealings . . . but why not just delete the message once you receive or send it? Instead, there's now a practical way for paranoid cheaters everywhere to keep their texts a secret. Lovely.

They have quite a few Android Apps like this. I realized them this weekend. They have an option where you can "blacklist" someone so that when people go to your text messages certain people would never appear there and most people would never know that you have a secret hidden inbox! There are also ones where you can send yourself texts from another phone number to make it seem that someone else has been texting you with anything you put into the text. One of the comments on the app is that a guy broke up his friends relationship by using it and convincing his friend the girlfriend was cheating so now he could try to date her!
