LAS VEGAS: One of the newest applications will allow you to run background checks from your smartphone – meaning that you never have to worry again about the people you meet.
If you have ever wanted to know more information about someone you have met, or if you simply want to know if what he or she is telling you is the truth, then DateCheck is a very handy application to have. The application allows you to find out nearly anything about the person.
For example, if you are wondering how compatible your interests are, then you simply need to look up what personal or professional websites they are on to see what things interest them. You can even look to see if they have a Facebook, MySpace, or Twitter page. And if you are interested in what the stars have to say, then you can check compatibility based on your astrological signs to see how well you'd match.
If money is a concern, then you can get an idea of how well they are doing by searching their financial history. Find out if they have filed for bankruptcy or if they own their own home. You can even see what the average home costs and what the average income levels are for the neighborhood in which they live. You can even see if they still live at home with mom and dad!
Of course, there is also the concern that your blind date could be an axe murderer. DateCheck allows you to search their criminal record for crimes and sexual offenses so you know exactly who you face. You can also search other public records to find out if they are married, divorced, or have always been single.
When Intelius, which was founded by Naveen Jain, debuted DateCheck at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, they added their own spin to it by starting it out as a live version of The Dating Game. Like the classic TV show, Intelius' bachelorette sat behind a curtain and asked silly questions of three potential bachelors sitting on the other side. However, this bachelorette had one advantage that previous contestants on the show didn't have – she was able to use DateCheck to look up information on her dates. She was able to find out whether or not they had a criminal record and which bachelor owned his own home. From there, she could make the decision which guy to ask for a date.
While the game show was more for the audience's entertainment than anything else, it did highlight the various ways that DateCheck, which was developed by Naveen Jain's Intelius team, could be used in a real life situation to find out more about people you meet.
