A Tiger Woods-Inspired Text Erasing App Hits The App Store?
Since many of us spend more time texting on our iPhones than we spend actually having conversations on them, perhaps there is a sizable audience of iPhone owners who will find value in the new TigerText application.
The word "Tiger," of course, is likely invoked here as a tongue-in-cheek reference to the golf pro recently embarrassed before a global audience for his private-turned-public marital infidelities.
So is TigerText really the iPhone's ultimate app for people with "something to hide?" Basically, TigerText is a texting app that literally leaves no long-term record of who said what and when. In short, the app makes your texts disappear - or "self-destruct" according to the lifespan you establish for their existence. And by disappear, it's not an exaggeration. Text messages are deleted from your iPhone, the device that received messages from you, and even the server that made your exchanges possible.
Talk about covering your tracks, huh?
While the app is obviously a response to high-profile celebs like Tiger Woods who were partly busted by SMS messages that gave away extramarital "transgressions," the makers of the app are having fun with this nifty little offering that's being promoted as perfect for "cheating spouses, politicians, sexting teens!"
TigerText is free to try but there will be fees to use the full version - something you'll need if there's really something to "cover up."

WOW! This will take things to the next level for all those teens that enjoy sexting, as well as for parents or guardians who are trying to keep track of everything that goes on with their child's phone.

I won't even if she didn't. For some reason even if I erase, the message will not erase. Scary, huh

Nice grab for attention with the title, but this app was both created AND named before the tiger woods fiasco. (authors made a statement.)

does it erase your crashed SUV and the dumb b!tch in your passenger seat? that's what tiger needs.

I would be EXTREMELY skeptical of a product that supposedly "erases messages from the server". That sounds like a bold-faced lie. the telecoms keep all of those records in the event law enforcement needs access to your records.

well if you are jailbroken, there is an app called iBlacklist that 'hides' all of the crazy messages your mistress sends you in the middle of the night...not that I know anything about that.......

IMO it's a complete waste of money, unless you're really too stupid to know how to delete text messages.
