Texting offers us a way to feel closer to the people far away from us. However, sometimes the person that you're texting wants to take it to the next level so that you can feel even closerand as much as you might want to do so, the prospect of sexting can seem totally terrifying.

Your mind tends to start racing with the possible consequences of indulging — What if someone reads what I write? What if he saves them and shows them to his friends? What if eventually these get leaked and my conservative family completely disowns me?

Just like SnapChat made it easy to send embarrassing (and even dirty) photos that disappear without a trace, BurnNote makes sure that the raunchy message you sent is "burned" after reading. BurnNote automatically deletes messages from your iPhone, Android or computer after the timer runs out. The app also uses special technology to make the content "resistant to copying, capture via screenshots, and the glances of curious bystanders." 

Of course, this app isn't meant to encourage you to send out explicit content. Even with this technology, you should proceed with caution if you decide to send something that you normally wouldn't. Even if the app promises that no one other than the intended viewer will ever see what you send, you should never do anything that makes you feel uncomfortable!

Beyond that, BurnNote is useful even if you're not interested in sexting anytime soon. You can safely talk to your best friend about issues you're having in your relationship or other friendships, ask someone in the class before yours what was on a big exam, or rant to your boyfriend about your evil roommate — without fear of retribution! Once you send your message and the recipient reads it, it's permanently deleted and gone forever. 

Whether you need to vent, gossip or send some steamy messages, BurnNote is definitely the way to go if you're sending out any messages you'd label "viewer discretion advised."
