Would You Use a "Sleaze Detector" iPhone App?

Would You Use a "Sleaze Detector" iPhone App?

Created by some characters with a shady rep themselves, the DateCheck by Intelius is a new iPhone app whose "Sleaze Detector" feature helps you do a background check on your date. (Sounds like a promising start for a relationship, no?)

Using your date's name, email address, or phone number, you can see if he has a criminal record, what his net worth is, whether or not he's living with his parents, and the usual Facebook and Twitter info.

The app is free — but the services they connect you to aren't. A criminal background check is about $19.95, for example, and finding out your date's social networking info is $9.95. Wow. A girl can never be too careful, but is this going too far?

It's not really going to work. Not everyone is going to have facebook or online connections. Plus who would trust a criminal background check for $19?

"Built in sleaze-o-meter." That is awesome, vmruby. I have one too — I just don't always listen to it!

Sounds lame....I wouldn't need it anyway. I have my own trusty built in sleaze-o-meter.

Sounds pretty stupid. Let's not teach young women to rely on their gut feelings or become good judges of character. Instead, we'll give them an iphone app so they don't have to think.

Wait, the net worth thing is so tacky. And how could that thing know what your living situation is.. Seems incredibly lame honestly. Like Pistil said, if they seemed iffy, I'm cancelling the whole thing.

I don't know. I think if I suspected that my date was a loser or a serial killer, there wouldn't be a second date. And Facebook is pretty accessible for free. And Google.
