Kaboom is a free iPhone app to share self-destructing messages with the world. You can share text messages, photos, or both with an expiry time via Email, iMessages, Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, and even by a direct link. This app is quite fun to use as it lets you set the expiry time of the messages manually. You might have used many iPhone apps or Android apps to send self-destructing messages, but “Kaboom” is very simple to use and doesn’t require any registration. All you have to do is type a text message or attach a photo to share with your friends.
When anyone tries to see what messages you have shared using this app, they will be redirected to Kaboom’s website, where they can view the message content as well as the expiry time. After the message expiry time is up, no one will be able to see your shared message content and they will be self-destructed. You can set the expiry time for minutes, hours, days, and also by the number of views.
The following screenshot shows how the messages will appear after sharing (in Facebook).
This app works exactly like another iPhone app “MIRAGE” which also lets you send self-destructing messages and invite friends (Kaboom users) to your app account. If you are looking for apps to send self-destructing images or files then you may also try Phantom and DSTRUX.
