Here comes a new iPhone application called TigerText. This application has been said to be the solution for cheating partners. It could help two cheating couples from being caught through sent items and dialled number, which is most of the time has been the concrete evidences of spouses against their husbands. The application’s name could have been derived from the so-called ‘Tiger Woods’ controversy. I probably assume that most of you know what’s this controversy all about.
This controversy has created a feast of news in the world wide web implying that Tiger Woods cheated his wife by having a lot of mistresses. If this application existed before all these things came out, he might have been saved by the disastrous scandal.
Here’s how the application works. Say for example the cheating husband would be keeping in touch with his mistress through texting. the mistress will be prompted to install the app. When she has done this, she can read the message, but she can’t keep it. In fact the message is never actually sent to her phone — it’s stored on Tiger Text’s servers. After the timespan that the husband specified has elapsed — anywhere from one minute to five days — the message ceases to exist. There’s even a “Delete on Read” setting, which counts down from 60 after it’s opened, and erases the text at zero. There also exists a “Delete History” option that will wipe any evidence of a given phone call. The mentioned mechanism wouldn’t allow any chance for the wife to get any evidences against the husband.
The founder, Jeffrey Evans says that the application is basically not done for that purpose. He claims that it is for the sake of privacy and the name has been created before the Tiger Woods scandal bursted out. Yet, they continued to stick with name.Evans pressed on the issue of privacy basing on the European Union which ruled in 2006 that phone and internet providers were required to keep all cell phone and email data for a certain period of time. For him, it is a plain invasion of privacy.
“People text like they talk,” he says. “And some of the things they say, taken out of context, can come back to haunt them”, Evans added.
