Good morning. I'm Linda Wertheimer. In the age of the Internet there are no more blind dates. Instead, there's an app for that. Now you can use your iPhone to check out and check up on potential sweeties before you make a move. Given a name or a phone number, Date Check will search financials, net worth, property debt. Its sleaze detector looks for criminal records. You'll have to check the medicine cabinet yourself.
It's MORNING EDITION.
