"This message will self-destruct in five, four, three"

Reviewed by / May 30, 2011

Tigertext sends free text messages that delete themselves after a specified amount of time.

This application shows that some people have good ideas and imagination. Tigertext sends messages with an expiration date. When the countdown reaches zero, the message is erased both from the sender and the receiver mobiles. We are confident that you can imagine a thousand uses for this app, from simply pretending to be secret agents or spies, to send messages to your lover knowing that his or her partner won't be able read to read them when he or she snoops the mobile.

The first thing you should do when you send a message is to decide how long it will "live". Choose from "delete on read" (60 seconds!) to a month. When the given time is done, that message is once and for all deleted from both users' devices. If there were pictures attached, they are deleted too.

There is a message status screen that shows you when a text message has been received, opened and expired.
It is important not to forget that both users must have the application installed so that the trick works.
Since TigerText uses the data connection on your phone, messages sent through this app are free, even international ones. Finally, TigerText is cross-platform, which is always welcome.

If you want further security, check TigerTextPRO for Business, the other successful TigerText app.

Recommended to those interested, but it is also a 'lovely' app.

    I think they started this way, but ended up as a good HIPAA compliant solution for hospitals and doctors, and seem to now have a very solid business.

    It's HIPPA compliant. Great. But it's no good as a pager if the messages don't come through. There's always a new problem - sometimes the messages don't bother coming through for 3 hours (or 3 days!), sometimes you know you got a message but can't read it, and sometimes the alert tone changes without warning to something you can't hear. Makes medical professionals look bad. Needs major work b
