Since the creation of the smartphone, there have been apps for everything ranging from creating drinks to listening to your favorite radio station… but what about ending relationships?
Mashable reported that iTunes has released a new app called BreakupText for users to buy for their iPhones or iPod Touches.
After customers have bought the app from the App Store, they can open the application and describe their relationship to the app.
Once they identify their gender, describing the mood of the relationship (either serious or casual) and when things went wrong (either they lost interest, found someone else or the hysterically “I was eaten by a bear” option, you can send it via text message to your unsuspecting ex!
Fast Company also stated that Jake Levine and Lauren Leto, who were inspired by Levine’s playboy ways in Hong Kong, created the app.
“There was at least one time when the girl didn’t respond—-which obviously happens when you pick up people at the bar.” Levine explained to Fast Company in an exclusive interview.
“So they thought it’d be hilarious to send really long, emotional, dramatic breakup texts.”
While it may be hysterical for some people to use, Levine cautions users to think long and hard before using it.
“Here’s the scary thing. If five to ten thousand people used BreakupText on the web, and even half a percent used it seriously, that’s like a couple people who may have actually used it.” Said Levine.
