TigerText launched in February of 2010. TigerText has created a next generation mobile communication network that provides many features current mobile messaging solutions do not. This includes allowing a user to send text messages or photos that delete off both the sender’s and receiver’s phone after a selected period of time. Once a sender selects the message lifespan (from 1 minute up to 30 days), expired messages not only delete from both phones, but are not stored on any server and they cannot be retrieved once expired. The sender can also choose other options that do not exist with current texting technology such as deleting the history of the conversation or making a text message “Delete on Read,” meaning the message will disappear 60 seconds after the recipient opens the message.
