A new iPhone app called Chec-Mate now allows you to find out if the person you’ve been staring at all night is safe to bring home. For $1.99 all you have to do is register and upload a picture of yourself. You’ll have to bring yourself to a registered screening facility and be cleared ahead of time before Chec-Mate can be fully activated. Soon, all you have to do is find out if the person even has a profile to know what you’re getting yourself into.
Chec-Mate may seem like their exploiting your personal business, but each user has full control over who they share their information with. There are no categories dividing up individuals which frees up more opportunities for mingling. For more details, check out Steve Lewis's interview with creator Eli Dancy here.
