On a bad date? Need to a quick exit plan? There's an app for that!
eHarmony has an app that'll get you out of a date, which is way better than suffering through the misery. The other person will still probably know that you're a giant faker, but hey, at least you're trying.
There are more than a few "fake phone call" apps already out there, says Andrew Liszewski at Gizmodo, but eHarmony's Bad Date Rescue app goes "beyond the call of duty" in a number of ways. First, you'll be able to choose precisely when the call arrives, whether that be in 3 seconds, 1 minute, or 5 minutes. Then it lets you specify the emergency: Your mom calls to tell you your sister just went into labor, for example, or your next-door neighbor rings to tell you your apartment's flooded.
It seriously looks like a real phone call with a picture popping up on the screen and a voice on the other end. And it's free.
