(Scroll down for video) A new application will help people avoid uncomfortable situations by keeping track of former boyfriends or girlfriends.

The app named Split, uses location technology to track those deemed undesirable.

It issues an alert when they get too close for comfort. The smartphone app even tells you the name of the person you want to avoid, and suggests an escape route.

The application, which is likely to be welcomed by former lovers and stalkers alike, uses social media sites like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to track people. “The idea was born during a frustrating night when I met my former girlfriend in a bar,” Udi, one of the founders of Split, said.

“After a few awkward minutes, I quickly gathered my friends and left for another pub down the street. However, when I arrived, I ran into another ex. We all have people in our lives that we prefer not to find by chance,” Udi added.

“It is not just about disliking the person, it is more about not hurting ourselves and them, and to avoid those awkward and embarrassing situations,” Udi continued.
