iPhone application automatically deletes old text messages

(NBC) - Cover your tracks. That's the motto behind a new service allowing you to automatically delete old text messages.

The new application, called "Tiger Text," is available for the iPhone and iPod Touch.

The application's developers says the service does not refer to the most famous athlete in the world, Tiger Woods, but rather to actual tigers because they are hard to track.

The application allows users to set a time limit on how long a text message will remain on a users phone before being erased.

The app is free for the first 100 messages during a 15 days trial period, after that it's $1.49 per 250 messages sent each month.

An application for Blackberry and Android platforms will soon be available.
