There are plenty of apps for meeting a significant other and even some for bonding with them once you're together, but what about after the relationship ends? Well don't worry, because now there's an app for dealing with all the uncomfortable emotions that can come up after a breakup, too.
Break-Up Boss advertises itself as "the size of a self-help book, but WAY easier to use and digest." It provides the brokenhearted with pep talks, inspirational quotes, breakup-themed playlists, and even a place to write their exes texts without actually sending them. There's also a "Feel Wheel" that'll give you advice for handling several common situations, like when you're tempted to drunk-text your ex or afraid you'll run into them at a wedding.
Writer Zoë Foster Blake, who created the app alongside illustrator Mari Andrew, announced its launch on Instagram earlier this week. Breakups are "a gift," she wrote. "A chance for epic growth. Painful but largely misunderstood, like Justin Bieber."
You can download Breakup Boss for $9.99, 10 percent of which goes toward helping family violence survivors at the Australian center Safe Steps.
This isn't the only new innovation helping people survive breakups. For more help getting over an ex or dealing with other relationship struggles, the app Relationup connects you with therapists who can give you advice over text. Or if you're looking to do something a bit more extreme, there's now even a retreat just for healing after a relationship ends. Since everyone recovers from a broken heart differently, we're glad to see the options becoming as varied as our experiences.
