Text Now, Book Later

By 04.10.2014 blog

There’s a reasonable amount of debate about whether or not the way we communicate sometimes — through IM programs, texting and sometimes just with pictures — is a good or bad thing. But at this point, it kind of doesn’t matter because it IS the way most of communicate, at least some of the time.

And if you think that some of your best communication ever is done via text, you might be into this idea for the next big thing: The TXT Book. It’s an app that lets you covert a group of text messages into a print and paper scrapbook, photos included. You choose the text and images, and then the app lays it out into a printable form that let’s you preserve the best (or the worst, up to you) of times into a forever format.

So what do you think? Is an app to help you preserve your digital communications the next big thing? Vote in the poll and weigh in!

    i think it would be a pretty cool thing to have and to see NBT!!!!!

  2. antonette

    no, because i don’t think it would be a good idea to have a book of your texts when you have them on your phone

  3. Marissa-Kilgore

    Yes I believe that a book last longer than a TXT. A TXT you can delete, But you can’t delete a book!

    I believe the TXT Book would be a TERRIBLE thing! If you had a fight with a friend and forgot about it, then sent them that book, they could be sad, or angry! Or maybe you were doing something you shouldn’t and THAT popped up!! D: This TXT Book thing sounds like a good idea, but really it is for worse.

    I guess

    I don’t think its the next big thing because what if someone cyber bullied you and then you make those text messages into a book and then read the messages out of the book that made you feel bad, its weird!

    Sometimes, with an iPhone, it deletes your old messages automatically. This idea is a good way to preserve some of your favorite messages, even if they aren’t on your phone anymore.
