Keep Your SMS Private And Secure With TigerText For BlackBerry By X Sigma Partners LLC

July 28, 2010 | By | 7 Comments

When I got the email I had to admit I was really intrigued. I’ve tried self destructive text apps before, but none were free. The point of it is to have a text that can self-destruct in a time limit that you set. TigerText is available in the BlackBerry App World for free. What is TigerText exactly?

The description of TigerText is as follows:

TigerText is the hottest new texting software that keeps text messages private and secure.  TigerText is a smart-phone application that allows users to exchange text messages that disappear after a set period. When it’s gone, it’s gone. If people text like they talk, some things are just taken out of context which may come back to haunt them. Not anymore…
TigerText allows users to send text messages that delete off both the senders’ and receiver’s phone after a set period of time. Once a sender selects the text lifespan, expired text messages not only delete from both phones, but are not stored on any server. They cannot be retrieved. TigerText users select the amount of time that a message will exist – from 1 minute up to 30 days after receipt – after which the message will disappear forever.

I downloaded the TigerText application to my BlackBerry Bold 9650. The last application like this was SMS Eraser. When you download the application it asks you to set up your account so that you can use it. It even has a text message practice to show you how to use the application. After answering back with the quick messages that teach you how to start using it.

Here’s the way that it works for those interested. You’ll have an inbox after learning by the messages that gave you a quick practice run. To create the text, you first click your Menu button and you choose the Settings. You’ll see your user name, your password hidden, your country, and your phone number. Next you see the Messaging Options. In here you choose the life span of your text. You can choose five minutes to 30 days. Under that is the choice to Delete On Read, then Delete History. Beneath that you can see the software version. Hit save after choosing your settings.

Now you’re ready to create your text. Click the Compose New and create your text message. After clicking compose new, it will bring you to your contacts. You can choose which contact and number to text. Then you simply type your text and send. In the message in the inbox you’ll see the number you texted to, the first part of the message, and the time. The recipient must read the text within the time alloted or the text will self-destruct.

I tried texting quite a few friends with this and it worked like a charm, especially for those who didn’t bother checking till after the deadline. All in all, the app worked perfect, does what it says it will do. Now the only thing that SMS Eraser did was kept your message from being able to be saved. You could also make it self destruct after opening once or twice. There’s even a user guide that you can access that will have the faqs on how to use the application.

If you’re interested in an app that could keep your texts private and is free, then this app is for you. I’d like to know who else has tried the TigerText and what you think about it. It’s currently available for all devices. For me it was more for fun, I’m not so much a texter since I use email and BBM primarily, but it is a great feature for those who still text.

Check out the TigerText and let us know what you think.

    What I want to know is how the heck this thing works? How does it tell another phone to erase the SMS after a given period of time?
    Like if I send a text message to my Mom’s Nokia 6126 how does it have the software to delete the message automatically after a given amount of time?

    Its amazing, it literally makes messages disappear. Its just nice to know that you dont have to worry about thing coming back to hunt you in general. Not that I have anything to hide but at least there is no trail. It works by putting the text on a server and the server deletes the text so it disappears off the phones as well.
