Messaging App Strings Allows Users to ‘Unsend’ Texts

/ 9 years ago


A new messaging app for iOS allows users to delete sent texts from the recipient’s phone, whether they’ve read them or not. The app, called Strings, allows users to send and receive texts, images, and videos in either individual of group chats, but with a set of customisable privacy controls. Users can control who can save and download images and videos, and remove sent messages, either individually or as an entire thread.

Though String hails itself as a more private and customisable version of messaging apps WhatsApp and Snapchat – its tagline is “You pull all the strings” – it has no facility to stop users from taking screen captures.

Strings has just launched in the US. There is no word yet as to whether the app will be rolled out internationally.
