New app to rescue people from bad date
Sydney, July 11 (ANI): A new application has been created that allows users to receive a pre programmed call to help them bow out of a bad date.
The Bad Date Rescue app developed for Apple's iPhone by the dating website eHarmony.com, was launched this week.
"There are all sorts of reasons for why people would want to get out of a date," Sydney Morning Herald quoted Arvind Mishra, director of product management at eHarmony, as saying.
"We can all sympathise because we have all been on bad dates in our lifetime," he said.
The free app includes several ways to set up a rescue. Users can pick a number from their address book for the call, for example from their mother or a friend.
If the person's picture is stored on the app, it will appear on the screen when the call comes through.
There are scripts are available giving the reason for the call, such as a neighbor calling about a leaky pipe; a mother informing that a sister just had a baby; or a boss saying he needs help immediately.
"It graciously allows you to play along and to get out of that situation," Mishra said.
The app can be pre-set before the date to call at a specific time and there is a quick rescue that can be triggered on the spot to ring in a few seconds or minutes.There are all sorts of reasons for why people want to get out of a date. We are helping them do it in a way that is fun and light and not abrupt," Mishra added. (ANI)
