The Sabbath Manifesto app allows users to "check out" of the Internet as a way to participate in the "National Day of Unplugging."

Reboot announced its annual National Day of Unplugging will be from sundown to sundown, March 4-5th of this year, but with an added twist. The non-profit has developed The Sabbath Manifesto, an application for smartphones that will allow you to ‘check out' from the Internet in response to the ‘checking in' phenomenon led by Foursquare. The app, available for iPhones, Androids, Blackberries and other smartphones-announces to your social networks and online community through Facebook and Twitter that you are unplugging and will not be available online.
