Since the dawn of texting on mobile phones a style of speaking has emerged that to this day still leaves me baffled. Perhaps it is because I am not a teen, or even that I think ‘later’ should not be spelt ‘ltr’ or however it is spelt.
From time time once of my friends will send me a text full of nonsense as far as I am concerned and I have to ask them to explain to me in plain English what they are trying to tell me.
Now there is an app for that. Text Genie will convert all those strange jumble of letters for you so that will know that “ilbl8 2nyt” means “I’ll be late tonight” and “1dRfl” means “wonderful”. It has a built in translator of over 1500 ‘words’ (note I use the term words loosely) and there is also the option to add in your own terms that are not already listed.
For parents and those who like me have no idea what some people are saying in their texts I can see this being a great tool. And all of this will only cost you a piddly 89p.
So if you are sick of your kids confusing you when they text head over to the Play Store where this can be yours for 89p.
