The New TayText App Lets You Break Up, Make Up & Call Out The Haters Using Taylor Swift Lyrics
“Because Taylor speaks for all of us”…
We all know people who go to Harvard are certified geniuses, but now five of their business students have made all our dreams come true, by inventing the TayText app.
Essentially an Apple iOS keyboard, TayText comes equipped with over 300 Taylor Swift lyrics from 60 of her greatest songs, all designed to help you convey your feelings in ways only Swifty can.
Organised into themes, you can select from the likes of ‘It’s Over’ (e.g. lyric: “It rains when you’re here and it rains when you’re gone), ‘Into You’ (e.g. lyric: “It’s a love story, baby just say yes) and ‘Haters’ (e.g. lyric: “My ex man brought his new girlfriend and she’s like ‘oh my God’”).
Inspired by Drizzy, the custom Drake lyrics keypad launched earlier this year, TayText CFO Kate Aitken and her four fellow female entrepreneurs saw a gap in the app market.
“Taylor Swift has far more intergenerational appeal than Drake, and she’s become a fully-fledged pop culture icon,” says Kate. “Whether you love her or hate her, you can’t ignore her. And there’s a zeitgeist quality to her music – she’s really captured what it feels like to be young and living in this decade, so there’s pretty much a Taylor Swift lyric for everything.”
Probably the best 79p we’ve ever spent, there’s no word yet on what Taylor thinks of TayText, and we all know she trademarked a ton of her lyrics earlier this year.
However, those Harvard students have access to some of the best lawyers in the world (hey Elle Woods!), so we’re sure they’ll be ok.
P.S. You can even use TayText with Tinder. Imagine the lols…
