There is now an app that lets you literally take back texts you regret.
Ansa allows you to not only set your messages to self-destruct, but even delete texts you regret from other people’s phones.
Essentially, it’s the app every serial drunk-texter has been waiting for.
Basically, Ansa is a kind of Snapchat for texts. It lets you send “self-destructing” messages, photos and videos in the same way that Snapchat does.
But its real offering is that even messages you haven’t set to self-destruct, you can “remove” from your contacts’ phones with synced deletion.
So when you realise that you sent that message…
… you can simply wipe it from existence.
Ansa has been trialling in US colleges for the last year, but launched internationally in the last few days. It’s being billed as a rival to Snapchat.
Here’s a screencap demonstrating the deletion of messages. Frankly, we’ve sent more embarrassing texts. But you get the idea.
