Have you ever been guilty of sending a badly thought-out message to a colleague? Or sending a message about someone, to that person? Well, now you can bid farewell to any awkward text message regret with the new app Privates!.
Initially devised as a way to keep medical records safe, the app's technology works by allowing you to delete an ill-advised message before the recipient has read it; however, once they have, there's nothing you can do (except maybe apologise).
The app also stops users from saving, forwarding or taking screenshots of messages, and can even self-delete an entire conversation after a certain period of time.
You can buy Privates! here: itunes.apple.com.
