What if you could see the future and know if your first date is the man of your dreams? You could find out if he's a cheater or a jerk before the damage is done.
The developers of the 'Man Scanner' are saying you can save the heartache and buy the app. It's practically being marketed as a crystal ball for daters.
Angye Fox would know. She has kissed a thousand frogs.
"I guess I'm a serial dater. I like to date and I enjoy going out and meeting new people," she said.
Forever searching for her prince.
"Looks can be deceiving. People aren't always genuine about who they really are. And so they pretend to be something to try to get the attraction and when the real person shows up it can be a bit disappointing," she continued.
Forget first glances or getting-to-know-yous, the Man Scanner seals the deal with a pic.
"Say you're at a bar and a guy comes up to you. You can say, 'Hey that's fine, let me scan with you with the Man Scanner first,'" said co-creator Paul Staples.
Let the app do the "man-alyzing." It's really called that, and it really gives an analysis.
"His face will show up with some sort of witty negative remark on it that says, OK, this guy is a jerk or a drama queen or anything like that," Staples said.
"The Man Scanner sounds fun. I definitely want to try that, and I know my cougar girlfriends would all love it. How accurate is that though?" Fox asked.
We put it to the test on some familiar faces.
Clooney's a jerk. Pitt is mama's boy. Goslin's a man child.
If that sounds suspicious, well, it turns out the app actually leaves the result up to you.
"The user of the app has the ability to set the outcome to either positive or negative, depending on whether she wants to appear welcoming or kind of dismissive," Staples explained.
Consider it a technological defense against the dangers of dating the wild, a.k.a. the clubs.
"People are just disrespectful is how I'd describe it. I've been groped and I've been grabbed," Fox said.
The Man Scanner was born out of those gropes and grabs.
"It gives women a tool to dispel those unwanted advances," Staples said.
But ladies, don't be surprised if he sees through your trick.
"Don't watch this, men, because you'll know that I'm now using the Man Scanner app," Fox warned.
The Man Scanner app sells for 99 cents, and of course it's considered purely entertainment.
