New App Can Remove Those Pesky Sex Texts
March 2, 2010
The app, dubbed TigerText, will allow you to send a text message without worrying about the consequences should it be found.
It works by sending the text through the TigerText server, which is then offered for free download by the recipient.
Because it is not sent directly to the phone it can only be viewed through the link, and then deleted by the sender.
Some have criticized the idea and name, saying that it is an application meant to encourage dishonesty and affairs.
But Jeffrey Evans, founder of X Sigma Partners, has said that it has nothing to do with that, and that the name has no actual connection to Tiger Woods or his well publicized conquests.
“I understand part of the reason people want to talk about it today is because of the name but this is not about people trying to cheat,” he promised in a statement at the launch.
“If you send a private text message it should stay private. Tigers are notoriously difficult animals to track. TigerTexts are difficult to track as well.
“Ninety-nine percent of what people want to keep private has nothing to do with cheating on a spouse or doing anything illegal. How many times have you sent someone a text message and told them after they read it to delete it?”
The service costs $1.49 per package of 250 messages, or $2.49 per month unlimited.
