The PeopleFinders Network launches two iPhone apps for singles in the dating scene
Singular City, Dusan Belic, December 16, 2009
The PeopleFinders Network unveiled two iPhone apps – "Stud Or Dud" and "Are
They Really Single," along with accompanying websites. Both apps are touted to
provide singles with easy-to-view reports that can help them make important
decisions about potential love interests. These reports are based on background
information including age, marriage and divorce records, criminal history,
business ownership, property ownership, evictions and more.
To conduct a search with "Stud Or Dud," users simply enter a name, age, date
of birth, phone number, email address, city or state. The application then
performs an extensive search through PeopleFinders' database of public records
and publicly available information, and formulates a comprehensive profile on
the person of interest. Based on a number of criteria, it helps users determine
whether the person might be a "stud" or "dud."
As for the "Are They Really Single," it helps users confirm that a potential
love interest is, in fact, single. Again, you should enter a name, age, date of
birth, city or state. The service then searches through information pertaining to
marriage, divorce, spousal and other domestic relationships, and creates a list
of people who have or had long-term relationships with the person.
Each app costs a buck, which is not much considering the usefulness of
information generated. Plus "Are They Really Single" is also available in free,
lite version, though I'm not sure about the differences.
