The only way I would think somebody could alter screen shots from an iPhone to fool you would be photoshop, and they would have to be pretty good photoshop to pull it off. As for the app, there may be such an app out there send her friend fake texts under your boyfriends number, and she could have screen capped those. But I dont know if there is so I cant help there, sorry.

1. There is no such app to my knowledge

2. IMO, your real solution is a more mature boyfriend with less baggage.

Good luck.

All she has to do is save another number under his name, text herself from that number. Yes it's possible and simple.

There are websites like http://www.fakeiphonetext.com/ that can do fake texts, but none I know also display time. Also, I don't think there's a single Android app that does fake iPhone texts (I just checked on Google Play).

Did you confront your boyfriend about this before the ex "admitted" the fake text thing? If you did, my guess is that your boyfriend forced her ex to lie to you so that he wouldn't get in trouble with you, possibly threatening her with anything so that she complies.

If the ex is telling you that, it's because she wants you to break up with your boyfriend so she can get back with him. She's still interested, so it would have been easy for your boyfriend to threaten her with something like "Tell my girlfriend all this was a lie and that the screenshots were manipulated otherwise I'm not talking to you ever again".

If however the ex admitted the fake screenshot thing even before your boyfriend was aware that you and his ex were texting each other, disregard what I just said and assume that his ex isn't over him and a bit crazy. It happens often, but so do guys cheating with their ex.

If she sent them to you as a screenshot, it is painfully easy to fake those. Just got to this site (fakeiphonetext.com), enter the conversation you would like to create, then then hit the 'Create' button.

Edit: Looks like pgiguere1 beat me to it.

On a jailbroken iPhone it is incredibly easy to add fake text messages. They're stored in a sqlite database that does not hide anything.

Yes, it's very easy in fact. I would be very skeptical of what she sent. It sounds to me like the ex is trying to sabotage the relationship.
