LOS ANGELES — “Cover Your Tracks”, that’s the motto of a new service and app available for the iPhone and iPod Touch, which can automatically delete sent and received text messages.
The service is called “Tiger Text”, and according to its developers, the service does not refer to the most famous athlete in the world, Tiger Woods, but rather to actual tigers because they are hard to track.
The application allows users to set a time limit on how long a text message will remain on a users phone before being erased.
The app is free for the first 100 messages during a 15 days trial period, after that it’s $1.49 per 250 messages sent each month.
An application for Blackberry and Android platforms will soon be available.
