Date Check: Online Dating Site Bumbs Beware

date check app for apple iphone performs background checks

Wow, talk about big brother/stalking/invasion of privacy. Get this, an iphone app that appeared at demo is going to allow the users of the iphone to use social media and the web to do on-the-spot background checks. The app is called Date Check…but should be called date stalk if you want my opinion. The app’s tag-line is pretty cute, “look up before you hook up” . It gives the user a comprehensive report of who ever by just plugging in a name, phone number, or email address. By this, Date Check can help you weed out undesirables, but it can also let you know if you found someone great. The breakout of the information is into 5 categories: Sleaze Detector, Compatibility, Net Worth, Living Situation, and Interests. It gets its data by scouring the web for public information.

The Sleaze Detector will show the really important stuff, like, criminal records (think to catch a predator), sexual offences, drunk driving arrests..the kind of stuff that matters.  The Compatibility is a novelty, it simply uses cliche compatibility tests, like matching up the astrological signs of you and your date and drawing conclusions from that. Net Worth is very invasive. It highlights your assets, and property purchases, even down to the details of that purchase. For example:  how many beds and baths that home or condo has, size of the lot and so forth. What if you live with your parents and are going on a first date and don’t want to get into the living situation discussion? Well too bad! Thanks to Living Situation,  it will pull data from social sites your on like Facebook, Myspace, Bebo to determine if your on your own, have roommates, or bunk at your parents house. Read More…
