He might not have earned back the respect of his wife or the rest of the world yet, but Tiger Woods is inspiring technology that might help other cheaters avoid getting busted.

A new iPhone app called TigerMail is now available that allows users to send text messages that vanish after reading.

The slogan for the app is, "Tigers don't always leave tracks."

Messages sent using the app don't appear in the phone's history, and once the receiver reads them, the messages can dissolve after five to 30 seconds, depending on the sender's settings.

The application also allows users to set incoming messages to be deleted after reading.

It's been widely reported that Elin Nordegren first learned of her husband's extramarital affairs when she stumbled across text messages to and from Woods' girlfriend, Jaimee Grubbs.

Grubbs later released those texts - and voice messages - to the media.

"Yes, TigerMail was inspired by Tiger Woods, but there are other reasons why this is a 'must-have' app. For all you do, you'll often want a certain level of secrecy, and to be able to avoid those 'prying eyes'," reads the spiel on tigermailsystem.com.
