Markets In Everything:App to Delete Text Messages
"The new TigerText iPhone application lets people kill embarrassing text messages after they have been sent out. The smartphone program was named before fallen golf god Tiger Woods' public drubbing for philandering, which saw his alleged lovers tout text messages as proof of his indiscretions.
People receiving the messages are prompted to download the TigerText application for free in order to read the text, which is not actually sent to the recipient's iPhone. Instead, the message is hosted on the company's servers where it can be erased whenever the sender wishes.
Sent messages can be deleted on demand or be set to automatically vanish after a specified period. A "delete on read" feature starts a 60 second countdown when a text message is opened and then erases it at zero. TigerText messages cannot be saved, copied or forwarded by recipients."
