If you're single, then you'll definitely know that there's no "app" for that. There are dating websites, sure, but what're you supposed to do when your married friends whip out their smartphones to start texting their significant other?

Well, "Invisible Boyfriend" (girlfriend version is also available) has finally made an app for singles. This app won't 3-D print you a lover, but it will send texts like one.

Developed by Matthew Homann and Kyle Tabor, Invisible Boyfriend charges a monthly fee to send texts, voicemails and even handwritten notes directly to your phone.

It may sound like a joke, but the app was built to help convince family and friends that you've finally settled down. It even solicits the selfies that it sends to your phone from real people rather than stock images.
