Message Peeping Tom lets you reply to messages when you want without leaving friends hanging
There is a common annoyance shared by almost all of today's popular messaging apps - they keep letting your chat contacts know when you've read their messages, and if you don't answer them on time, your contacts (especially significant others!) feel you left them hanging! There's a method to this madness, however, and it comes in the form Message Peeping Tom (MPT) - an app that reads the messages from the notifications your chat programs send you, and displays them in its own privy window.

Unlike them, it doesn't give the other side a clue that you've read their musings, so the dreaded "Seen... 2 days ago" message is dealt with for good. Right now, MPT supports Line, Facebook Messenger, Kakao Talk, Hike, Between, and China's Momo. Obviously, this app was made with the Asian market in mind, but the English translation it has will suffice.

The app is still being worked on, so it might exhibit a bug or two as you go about using it. But as it grows more popular, the kinks will be ironed out and more people will start enjoying their rightful privilege of replying messages whenever they darn please.

No one really talks to me there. I'm the typical, stay-at-home guy

Pretty much all the chat apps have the ability to hide the "seen" status. This nothing that hasn't been done before.
