Mark Cuban is a man of many talents. He is the billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks
as well as one of the fearsome judges on ABC's show "Shark Tank." Now, Cuban is attempting
to dive deeper into the mobile app arena with his latest project, called Cyber Dust.It's a free texting
app that lets you send messages and photos in a sort of chat room, but the messages self-destruct
after 30 seconds. The app leaves no trace of the messages and they are not stored anywhere. It
alerts you if the person has taken a screenshot, and it provides send and read confirmations so
you know if someone viewed your message. If your friend hasn't viewed the message within 12
hours of sending it, it will expire and be deleted forever.
This could be a viable Snapchat replacement. It promises more security and has more features
coming in the future. You can only send pictures and texts for now, but videos will be coming in
the near future. Of course, a chatting app is only good if your friends are using it. The market for
these kinds of apps is becoming very crowded, so we took a dive through Cyber Dust to see how
it's different from the rest.
