Coinciding with the release of her Netflix series 'Chelsea Does,' Chelsea Handler has debuted her new Gotta Go! app. While Handler is best known for her comedy, her new app provides a clever way to get out of awkward situations.

The 'Gotta Go!' app was designed as part of a collaboration between Handler and the San Francisco-based firm '' The app is primarily designed for generating excuses that can be used to get out of awkward situations. To use the app, users simply tap on an emoji that is associated with the excuse they want to use. Users then add the contact number to their address book and set an alarm for a text message or call. When a bad situation arises, users can simply show their companion the phone call or text to get out of the engagement. Some pre-built excuses include situations such as a missing pet or a car being towed. However, users can also customize their own excuses to make them applicable to nearly any situation.
