Want to get rid of every last trace of your ex on your Facebook page?
There's now a quick and painless way to do it. KillSwitch, a new app that launches -- ironically enough -- on Valentine's Day, takes care of everything for you, removing all photos, status updates and wall posts concerning your ex when you just can't bring yourself to do it.
But KillSwitch is hardly the first app to make breakups a little less complicated. For those contemplating a split, the recently launched Should I Break Up With My Boyfriend app tracks your feelings over the course of two weeks, then presents you with a graph quantifying what you should do, along with some personalized advice.
And for those on the prowl post-split, the Breakup Notifier app for Facebook conveniently (or creepily?) sends an email when someone you're interested in changes their relationship status.
Watch the video above for more on KillSwitch, then click through the slideshow below for five apps that streamline the divorce process for splitting couples.
The 2Houses app was designed to make it easier for divorced parents to communicate about their children's lives. Both parents can edit and update a shared digital calendar to keep track of their kids' busy schedules and ensure that neither parent misses a ballet recital or a parent-teacher conference. One helpful feature: if one parent makes a schedule change, a notification will automatically be sent to the other parent to let him or her know.
The Divorce Log app is a calendar-based program that help divorcés keep track of divorce-related information (i.e. alimony and child support payment dates, expenses, and time spent with the kids) in one place. All entries stored in the app can be forwarded directly to an email address so that you can send pertinent information to an attorney or ex-spouse.
The iSplit Divorce app helps users divide their pricey marital assets by assigning icons to all big-ticket items, including the house, cars, etc. Users are prompted to input the monetary value of each item before determining which former spouse gets them; the app keeps a running total of each spouse's assets, ensuring a fair split between both parties. You can also export the information into a spreadsheet to bring with you to a meeting with your attorney or give a copy to your spouse or financial advisor.
The Child Support Calculator app can be used to help divorcing parents determine the estimated cost of monthly child support or alimony payments. Users must enter the state where the divorce proceedings are taking place, the income of both parents and the percentage of custody each parent has to determine the amount to be paid.
The Parenting Apart app is an advice-based service that provides resources for separated or divorced couples. The app allows users to search through common questions, such as how to co-parent, or help your children adjust -- to get at-your-fingertips support.
