This new app called Strings that lets you unsend texts is a millimeter away from becoming one of the greatest inventions of the 21st century.
Here’s how Strings describes it…
We believe you deserve a way to spontaneously and fearlessly share your most intimate moments and personal thoughts from your smartphone. So we developed Strings. With Strings, you can say whatever you want, share any video or photograph you want, to whomever you want. And take it back if you want. And your friend, relative, workmate or partner cannot share it with anyone else. Unless you want them to.
Strings is based on your phone number, just like texting. Only people you add as a friend can share with you on Strings. There are no privacy policies. Nothing sent by mistake that you cannot retrieve.
“Nothing sent by mistake that you cannot retrieve.” Sounds pretty awesome, right? Yeah…as usual when something is too good to be true it usually is.
Apparently in order for Strings to work, the person on the receiving end of your drunk missive has to also have the Strings app on their phone. So, so close to perfection, yet so far away. But hey, it’s definite progress right?
