RakEM, byRaketu Communication, is amobile messaging app that allows users to hold instant messaging conversations privatly while knowing their information is not being stored by a company.RakEM uses server-less, device-to-device direct technology and "self-mutating encryption algorithms" to protect your texts. The app also allows you to erase texts that you have sent. This can be a big deal for people who text while angry (or otherwise impared). Not only do the texts get erased from your phone, but from the recipient's as well.

"Other messaging apps have promised security, but we've all read the stories about images and messages that have been unwittingly exposed," said Greg Parker, president and CEO of Raketu, in a press release. "With security breaches making headlines almost daily, people want assurance that their communications are private and protected. And that, should they have second thoughts about something they sent, they can delete with confidence from devices. Raketu's technology makes this possible."

You can downloadRakEMon the App Store for free to start texting without worry.

Feel Me Provides A Touching Message Experience

Posted by Kevin Stout on May 11th, 2012

Text messaging has become an important part of the day-to-day relationships for millions of people. For some, it's a primary form of communication and helps people keep in touch at times when calls can't be made. But text messaging isn't as personal as a face-to-face conversation or even a phone call. Feel Me, a soon-to-be-released messaging app, aims to add a little more "feeling" to phone messaging.

The app displays, in real time, where the person at the other end of the message is touching the screen. Users can see each others fingers tapping at the virtual keyboard or just feeling out for a touch reply. In addition to the visual cues displayed when someone is touching the screen, a vibration or sound can be played when the two people are touching the same area to mimic the feeling that they're actually touching each other.

While the app is currently functional, it hasn't been released yet. On the Feel Me official websites, potential users can sign up to be notified when the app is released. We look forward to taking a look at this one when it comes out.

MultiTap Text Brings Numeric Typing and T9 to the iPhone

Some people are slow to adopt the idea of using a touchscreen keyboard over a physical one. I’ve even met people that are so attached to their old, flip phones and numeric texting that they don’t want to move to an actual keyboard on a phone. MultiTap Text allows users to take a step back in mobile history to the days of T9 and numeric texting.

Users can export the text they create in MultiTap Text via email, SMS, or simply copy the text to the clipboard. The app features an easy-to-use interface, T9 typing, and a menu with various options users are familiar with from older phones (Abc, ABC, abc, etc).

This app is perfect for those texters that became pros at T9 and don’t want to lose out on those skills by switching to an iPhone.

MultiTap Text was released on April 1st and is available for $0.99. Check out the video below.
