While some are distancing themselves from Tiger Woods as he tries to recover from his sex scandal, others are trying to make a little dough off of his misfortune. But how many people can say they’ve made money off of Tiger’s infidelity and helped us all along the way? One enterprising lad named Jeffrey Evans is aiming to do both through his new IPhone App rightly named, “TigerText”.
The new application for the iPhone – coincidentally called TigerText – allows senders to put a timed delete on messages.
It then wipes forever the message from the mobile that sent it, the receiving handset and server.
TigerText founder Jeffrey Evans, who chose the name before the Woods scandal, said: “For the first time, you have complete control over what happens to texts after you hit send.
“It brings safety and peace of mind to anyone who sends messages that are intended to remain private.”
Indeed, Jeffrey. Indeed. So just how does this glorious app work? Just as glorious as one would think.
The app works only if the sender and recipient both use iPhones and have TigerText installed. Messages look identical to a normal text but content is kept on a server and viewed from there.
There is also a “delete on read” facility. It is expected to appeal to politicians, lawyers and businessmen as well as to adulterers.
So all that’s left to do is head on over to the iTunes store and get protected.
