"The newest app to come to the rescue." -DETAILS Magazine http://bit.ly/1SAqfbu h/t @Details See More

THE STORY:

How many times have you sent a text only to immediately regret it? Named "The Texting Savior" by AT&T, On Second Thought is an innovative messaging app that lets you take back text messages you regret before they are received on another person’s phone. Whether Autocorrect is waging a war on your phone, or you’ve just had a little too much to drink, On Second Thought has your back. Replacing the phone’s native messaging app, users can eliminate any awkward or damaging text situations with On Second Thought!

The app has two functions: recalling text messages and setting a curfew on your texting. Through the recall function, users can customize their grace period for deleting texts – up to 60-seconds. In addition, users can choose to put a curfew on their phone when out on the town to ensure extra measures are taken to prevent drunk texting.

In 2014, On Second Thought won First Place at #StartupOasis, UP Global, and the Kauffman Foundation’s annual pitch competition at SXSW. On Second Thought was a showcased startup at 1776 in Washington, DC and a featured startup and ALPHA exhibitor at The Web Summit in Dublin.

Maci Peterson, the CEO and co-founder of On Second Thought, is a DC-based entrepreneur with roots in Chicago. She is a member of the MindShare Class of 2015 as well as an active member of DC’s tech community. Earlier this year, she was named “Tech’s Newest Innovator” by Essence Magazine and recognized in the Washington Business Journal’s “40 Under 40” List. On Second Thought and Maci have been featured on The Huffington Post, Refinery29, Bustle, BBC, USA Today and CNN.

Maci & On Second Thought are excited to be included in the Women Who Tech Startup Challenge. She is grateful for your funding support and looks forward to making text regret, for women and men everywhere – especially those dependent on texting – a thing of the past.
