Go On, Be Annoying: Infinite Text-in-Progress Prank for iOS 7

Text in Progress Icon Prank

You know how you’re texting with someone, and it’s just taking forever for them to respond? It especially sucks when you’ve just asked a question you’re dying to know the answer to. It almost seems like those little dots on the text-in-progress icon are mocking you… Well, I hate to break it to you, but if you’ve been staring at that message thread for an hour and the icon indicated that the person on the other end is still typing, then I think you’ve just been pranked.

How? With this clever animated GIF that pranksters Miscellaneous Mischief have made available here: Infinite Text-In-Progress. The site hosts the GIF that looks like the legit one for the iPhone, and all people have to do is download that and send it to their victim of choice.

Now that you know, the only thing left to do is return the favor (but those people will probably catch on pretty fast, since they already know about it) and pass it on (but have some pity and compassion, and don’t do it to the elderly.)
