Breaking Up? There’s an App for That by Lisa Daily

Break-up Apps: Breaking up has always been brutal, but with Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pintrest, it’s practically impossible to get your ex completely out of your life, off your mind, and off your timeline — thanks to real-time, streaming updates via a tangle of shared friends and interwoven networks. Luckily, there’s an app for that. Below, you find some of the newest tools to help solve one of humans’ oldest problems.

Why are these breakup apps really necessary?
In the digital age, you can’t just throw your ex’s ratty t-shirts and CDs in a box and be done with him. Now, we’re not just connected to our friends and significant others, but their friends and sometimes exes as well. One thing that’s great about these types of tools is that they prevent you from having to unfriend or unfollow half the people you know. Because breaking up already sucks enough.

Killswitch?
This handy little app scrubs all traces of your ex from your social media accounts, without you needing to “unfriend” mutual pals.

EX Lover Blocker
If you try to call your ex, this App will text your best friends so they can intervene to save you from yourself and prevent you from making a sure-to-be awkward mistake.

DrunkDial and DrunkBlock

DrunkDial actually makes you pass a “sobriety” test before it allows you to make a call (timed math problems). A great idea unless you happen to be pretty good at math.
DrunkBlock hides certain phone numbers from you (i.e., your ex) for up to 24 hours.
