This App Lets You Delete Texts From Other People's Phones

In case you didn't know, ChatON is the proprietary texting app for Samsung phones — kind of like a WhatsApp for folks with Android. The latest update has all kinds of fun little features: stickers, large file sharing, route sharing... okay,YOU CAN DELETE TEXTS. From OTHER PEOPLE'S PHONES. That's right. Misspelled something? Redo it. Sent a... questionable picture? Get rid of it! How about a video that might compromise your future career in politics? Bye bye. It's like Snapchat with take-backs. Even if the other person has read the text, you can simply pluck it from their phone. It only works in one-on-one text convos for now, but like... are you really sending those pics in group texts? If so, congratulations sir.
