On Second Thought

Take back text messages

On Second Thought is a tool that lets you take back text messages you've already sent. It's like time travel, but for your most embarrassing moments. 😳

    Terrific idea and works as described. Great ap.


    I have installed/dumped a few times over the past few years. The problem? When I set as default messaging I can't set the notification sound

    I enjoy the ap and keep retrying it to see if there had been any upgrade. My problem is that the default notification sound is not loud enough in a noisy environment and - despite previous requests to OST - I have no idea as to how I can allocate a specific notification sound to the ap, as I can with the Samsung 'Messages'. Hence I wind up deleting OST and go back to using the Samsung default. I am using a Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus. If you can come up with an answer to my issue, I'll happily use OST out of preference.

    Gives us Second chance.. The think we want most in our Life. :)


    We can't set the delay for the message so that we will get more time for our second thought. ;)

    Keep doing the magic you have and you will be great. :)

Oh the times I wish I'd had this before!!! (usually when out at a bar...) It should have an auto-retract if you send a message after 2am! When will it be out for iOS @macipeterson ?
@bentossell Working on iOS now!
If a person have already seen the text, can you still undo?
Did they create Snapchat for that?
@chiancheng On Second Thought lets you undo messages BEFORE they get to the other person ;-)
Very cool, heard of the app yesterday while I was listening to the Tested podcast, Kayte Sabicer mentioned it! Reading you're working on an iOS version, is the OS open enought to let you manage text messages?
Seriously, every app that has DM capability needs this feature. Or maybe *I* just need this feature... πŸ˜‰
