Date Check iPhone app gives the dirt on potential date

Have you ever met someone and felt that special spark but you would rather know a little bit more about them before you went somewhere secluded? If so then the new Date Check iPhone app from Intelius will help you "Look up before you hook up" and make sure your bad decisions aren't horrible decisions.

The free app breaks down your instant background check into five areas making it much easier to avoid a bad date. Take note, when we say "bad date" we don't mean a dude who talks about his last girlfriend and his mom all night.

No, we're talking about avoiding someone who steals your $500 Prada handbag, $200 Coach wallet, keys to a Mercedes, $1,500 diamond bracelet, credit card and cell phone after a night at the bar.

If this unfortunate lady had the Date Check app she could have used the "Sleaze Detector" to find out if her companion had any previous criminal convictions and she could have been spared the pain of her lost possessions.
