The Break-up: When an app you love shuts down


Abandonment Issues: When the app you love leaves you

There’s nothing more gut-wrenching than a break-up. It’s a ice-cream-tub-in-bed don’t-wanna-talk-to-anyone-but-can’t-stop-talking-about-it kind of whirlwind, especially when you didn’t see it coming. I had a few bad ones this year— but don’t worry, my marriage is still intact. My break-ups were with apps I loved.

On HuffPo, I got some closure, writing about apps I loved— like Manilla, Lemon Wallet, and Ness— that left me without warning. If this has ever happened to you (and I know it has cause you often email me when it does!) then you know the range of emotions can be overwhelming: betrayal, frustration… and, if the app stored a lot of your personal information, panic. It can be tough to know what to do, and it can make you wary to love again.

Read the full post to hear more about what I do when an app I use to organize my life shuts down, how to get closure and move on.
