Good news for all Swifties/anyone who's ever been lost for words when trying to respond to a text: Taylor Swift will now essentially answer your messages for you. Five Harvard business students have created an Apple iOS keyboard app—TayText—that's basically a database of Taylor lyrics. Equip the keyboard and then choose from over 300+ lyrics from 60+ songs to best convey your feelings.

Lyrics are categorised by 11 themes—examples include "Into You," "Over You," and "Missing You." And the keyboard works in all text-based apps (messaging, email, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.), which means especially wonderful things for Tinder.

"[Taylor's] really captured what it feels like to be young and living in this decade," Katie Aitken, TayText CFO explained in the app's press release on its premise. "So there's pretty much a Taylor Swift lyric for everything." TayText, released globally on Monday, costs 99 cents in the Apple app store. But really, can you put a price having the perfect Swift-approved comeback?
