Traditionally you would rely on your friends, banking that they come through with that emergency call or text, aiding in your somewhat guilt-free getaway. However, let’s be honest. It has never been a reliable system—especially if you lack creative friends with creative excuses.

Thanks to Chelsea Handler, you now no longer have to rely on your unreliable friends to save you. Handler has just revealed her new app, appropriately titled “Gotta Go,” which is basically the upgraded version of your previous emergency exit strategy.



The app works by sending users pre-scheduled texts and calls that appear 100 percent legit, because not only are you able to customize the excuse, you’re able to pick the contact they’re sent from. A much needed upgrade from apps that offer a similar service, “Gotta Go” allows users to assign the contact name that you are receiving the messages and or calls from.

Simple, yet it provides the key ingredient to “believability”: proof. You can download the app on iTunes here.
