Send A Message From iPhone That Auto Destruct or Delete Itself With Tiger Text

by abhishek bhatnagar on March 4, 2010

TigerText is a free application for iPhone and iPod Touch which allows you to send the sms messages in such a way that, sent message can auto delete itself once its read by the recipient.


How This Work ?

Whenever you send a regular text message, you sent it from your phone and its routed through a server and then delivered to the recipient’s phone. The message you send will live on the receiver’s phone until the recipient decides to delete it. The text message will also reside on the cell phone company’s server for an unlimited amount of time.

TigerText is different because, even though it looks and feels identical to a normal text message, the content of your message is never sent to the recipient’s phone and you control when the message is deleted from our server so you control the lifespan of the message.

What Does Delete On Read Mean ?

“Delete on Read” indicates a message will be deleted 1 minute after the receiver opens the message. When a message is sent with “Delete on Read” as soon as the recipient opens the message a countdown clock begins at 59 seconds. When the clock reaches 0 the message is deleted from the server and therefore does not exist on the recipient’s phone anymore. Please note that if a message is sent with “Delete on Read” but is not opened prior to the expiration of the Text Lifespan, the message will no longer exist and therefore not be read 

Do You Need To Pay For The Messages ?

TigerText is free to try (100 messages sent over 15 days) and it’s always free to read messages. iPhone users who want to send messages pay simply $1.49 per 250 messages sent per month or $2.49 a month for unlimited messages. Blackberry and Droid will be priced in a similar fashion.

Here Are Some Screenshots of the Application In Action which can you the remaining story visually.
