    Intelius Date Check for iPhone and Android Devices- Personal Date Police

    Information-gathering company, Intelius, has released an app called Date Check that in minutes scans billions of publicly available documents stored on numerous databases and hidden in countless files to ascertain if the guy (or girl) you just met is worthy of a second date. Does he/she have a criminal record, hold the job they say, live with mum and dad or a spouse and kids or earn enough to keep you happy? The company says it’s like having a private investigator in your phone but we’re guessing privacy advocates have other ideas.

It says it has developed proprietary software that synthesizes publicly available information, public records and social network data from thousands of sources – they just get the information much, much quicker and probably cheaper than the average inquisitive Joe or Jane Citizen can.

Once the free app is downloaded, Date Check only needs a name, phone number or email address to provide information to help you determine whether the person you’ve met minutes ago is worth going out with again. Punch in the information and Intelius goes to work (for a fee) synchronizing billions of public records to provide a top line summary.
