When your relationship with someone is going well, you’re often liable to send photos that may be a bit, err, compromising. That’s all well and good, until things turn south and your relationship comes to an end. In the moment, it’s not always easy to think about that uncomfortable possibility, but the fact of the matter is that no matter how close you might feel to your partner now, romantic relationships begin and end all the time. And if and when your current relationship does end, you’re left in the compromising position of having an ex out there who is armed with plenty of photos that you would rather keep private.
Well, now there’s a free app that helps you plan ahead. It’s not foolproof by any means, but it sports a nifty feature that allows you to grant and revoke access to any photos you share easily remotely, in real time.
ON/OFF Photo by iOS app developer hong kijong is a free iPhone app available now on the App Store. Using the app, you can quickly and easily share any photo in your camera roll through Apple’s standard Messages app. The beauty, however, isn’t in the sharing of photos — it’s in the fact that at any point in time, you can unshare photos with a single tap.
This quick video with a hauntingly eerie computer voice narrating it explains how it works:
