I was wondering if encrypted apps like Tigertext messaging hackable? I mean if somebody wanted to hack the phone, could they read the encrypted messages on it?

Tigertext is HIPAA compliant, does that make it more secure?

We are thinking of using their API for an app I am looking to develop. I looked on their API site http://www.tigertext.com/developers/ but I couldn’t find anything about this.

It is like lock of the door, it is a matter of time if somebody want to enter/bypass, what you can do it is make it harder to enter, so the time/money spend to hack, to not worth it...on software side are so many levels of security to cover , that even today it is not "golden shield" for security...
