BroApp, currently only available for Android but with an iOS version on the way, will send out scheduled texts to your girlfriend to keep her from feeling neglected.
“BroApp is a tool to help Bros out,” the company said. “We know that people are busy and sometimes forget to send enough love to their partners. We invented BroApp so that even if you forget to manually write a message, your love is still communicated. BroApp provides seamless relationship outsourcing.”
The app comes from two Brisbane-based app developers, Tom and James, who told news.com.au the feedback so far is that relationships have been helped, not hindered, by the app.
Tom and James told Today they both used the app for three months without their girlfriends finding out.
Tom said: “Personally, my partner was impressed that I would write her a message even though we were going to see each other that night.
“It did get awkward having to tell [her] about trialling BroApp on her for the past three months. When James and I first pitched her the idea, she said, 'Any girl will work it out'. She was wrong.”
The way it works is users select their girlfriend's contact information in the app, and you can then either write a series of texts that you can schedule to be sent out at a specific day, or pick from a default list of 12 messages, such as "Hi babe, how was your day?"
The app itself will pick the time that the texts are sent, so for example if you recently sent your girl a text, but had a text scheduled, then the app will wait. It will also ask you to pick your girlfriend's Wi-Fi network, so scheduled texts won't be sent when you're at her house.
Best of all, if your girlfriend tries to get use the app it will bring up "a list of gifts you were 'planning to buy her,” and you'll get off scott-free.
One common criticism in the reviews section however is that the app doesn't allow for multiple girlfriends. Boo.
