Fed up with your job and ready to quit? A new app has been developed to help avoid the stress and awkwardness of telling your boss face to face, by sending them a text message instead.
The humorous Quit Your Job app asks users to determine why they are leaving and then generates an elaborate message to send to the boss.
Users can then search open positions through another app called Job Search by TheLadders, the New York-based recruitment company behind the Quit Your Job app.
"In an age when nearly everything can be done from the convenience of your smartphone, we thought job resignation was an area that needed some attention," Alex Douzet, CEO and co-founder of TheLadders, said in a press release.

"On a serious note, while the recruitment industry has been slow to adopt mobile technology – years behind other industries – one in three job searches are being conducted on a mobile device."
Douzet hopes this app and his company can remedy this problem.
Around 2.3 million Americans left their jobs last October, citing reasons such as dissatisfaction with career growth or feeling unrecognized, according to the lates figures from the U.S. Department of Labor.

TheLadders teamed up with the creators of the BreakupText app, which lets users leave their partner through a text message.
The free Quit Your Job app was launched as an iPhone app in July and released on Android last week.
Extravagant resignation styles are not new. Marina Shifrin quit her job at Taiwanese animation firm Next Media Animation by making her own video set to Kanye West's song, "Gone" last year. In 2012, Greg Smith left his high level role at Goldman Sachs with a damning letter in the New York Times calling the environment at the bank "toxic and destructive".
