Thursdays App of the Week: Bad Date Rescue

Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- We've all been there. That awkward first date, where things just didn't go the way you wanted them to.

Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- We've all been there. That awkward first date, where things just didn't go the way you wanted them to.

"Hi, how are you, Bill, nice to meet you"

"Seriously, 12 cats?"

"A packers fan? You have to be kidding!"

"Worst date ever."

That catastrophe of a date could have led to the longest day of my life, but luckily it didn't have to because, there's an app for that.

It's called the Bad Date Rescue app, simple to use and a potential lifesaver.

You can schedule your phone to call you in five seconds, one minute or five minutes, or select a predetermined time.

On the other end, an actual voice calling about an urgent situation. Maybe your mom calling about a family emergency, a coworker about upcoming deadlines.

And for people who tend to freeze in those tense situations, there's a repeat-after-me feature.

Phone: "So, you need a bad date rescue, huh? Well, okay, I'm here to help and you are going to exactly what I say."

But, you don't have to answer the phone, if the date is going well, simply ignore the call.

Some say, honesty is always the best policy, others say a little white lie never hurt anyone. Which direction you go on that next awkward first date is up to you.

Right now, that application is only available on the iPhone market.
