Let TextGenie Tranlate Texts into Plain English for You

on August 22, 2012 10:03 am

If you receive text messages full of words like “ilbl8″ or “wdymbt”,  you probably feel like you need a translator.  (They mean “I’ll be late” and “what do you mean by that”.)  TextGenie is an Android app that can translate messages as you receive them, using the built-in dictionary of 1500 texting terms.  You’ll be able to add new terms to your dictionary, too.  This app will access your SMS and phone services and your contacts.  The app is $1.16 in the Google Play Store.

    Okay Byron I had a chance to sleep on it and this is what I came up with, but I really think you wanted the TextGenie to do it, but I love a puzzle:

    Problem With Transportation At The Moment

    I don’t do text messages, is this one quite common?

    People Who Text Are Total Morons.

    My opinion, I think texting and Facebook are the biggest waste of
    time ever created by the mind of man, and one of the most dangerous (car accidents, jobs lost, identities stolen).
    in my opinion.
