When you send a regular text message, the message is sent from your phone, routed through a server, and then delivered to the recipient’s phone. The message you send will live on the receiver’s phone until the recipient decides to delete it. The text message will also reside on the cell phone company’s server for an unlimited amount of time. TigerText is different because, even though it looks and feels identical to a normal text message, the content of your message is never sent to the recipient’s phone and you control when the message is deleted from our server so you control the lifespan of the message! TigerText is currently only for use on iPhone & iPod Touch. Blackberry and Droid will be available soon.
Messages are displayed on both users (sender and receiver) phones until they are deleted from our server. All expired texts are cleared from their servers every minute of the day.
TigerText is free to try (100 messages sent over 15 days) and it’s always free to read messages. iPhone users who want to send messages pay simply $1.49 per 250 messages sent per month or $2.49 a month for unlimited messages. Blackberry and Droid will be priced in a similar fashion.
