It’s typical. You type a text, hit send and realize it was a bad idea — but it’s too late, and there’s only so much you can blame on autocorrect.
Maci Peterson, the founder of the text-delay app On Second Thought described it best in a spirited appearance on FOX 5’s Good Day DC:
Or to quote Peterson from a release, “On Second Thought allows users to quickly recall potentially embarrassing text messages, empowering users to better manage personal and professional relationships.”
The app, which holds cell phone text and photo messages to allow users to take them back before they reach the recipient, is now available on Google Play.
Soon, there will also be a curfew option — for those nights when you’re better off not texting at all.
Peterson is a D.C.-based entrepreneur who founded Mwari Magazine, a publication for young women of the African diaspora, while studying at Chapman University in Orange County, California.-30-
