Adding a splash of humor to the otherwise serious job search, we decided to team up with the creators of BreakupText to bring disgruntled employees the Quit Your Job app. With just a few taps, the iPhone app generates personalized, and quite colorful, resignation messages.
Now, it should be noted that, while the end recipient of the message is entirely up to the user, we don't actually recommend terminating employment via text message - the app is intended for entertainment purposes only.
Upon launching the app, the user is prompted to “Begin the End” by choosing options for why s/he is quitting, what s/he plans to do next, and who s/he wants to send the text message to. An elaborate text message is then sent to the intended recipient, and the user is brought to a screen that enables social sharing via Twitter and Facebook.
