Stud or Dud announced the release of its iOS application, which was designed to help online daters find out more about their potential dates before meeting them in person.
With Stud or Dud, users can search for a potential date’s “publicly available records” by entering their name, phone number or email address. The app searches “millions of records,” and it may show information such as criminal records, marital status information, court records, work records and more. Users can remove their public records from Stud or Dud here.
Once a user analyzes the information they receive from the Stud or Dud app, they can privately rank the potential date as a stud or a dud.
In a statement, Amber Higgins, president of Stud or Dud, commented:
Americans spend thousands of hours swiping and chatting with people via Tinder, Bumble and other online dating sites and apps, so our goal was to provide a free and fun app that made dating in the 21st century safe and transparent. Nearly one-third of all online daters do their own background checks about potential dates before meeting them. Stud or Dud preserves the butterflies and excitement of the dating experience while helping users protect themselves from a potential dud.
Stud or Dud is available to download for free on the iTunes App Store. The app is coming soon to Android.
