NEW YORK — Web site eHarmony.com has begun offering The Bad Date Rescue app.
The application lets users arrange for a call to appear on their iPhones to allow them to bow out if a date isn't going well.
The free app includes several ways to set up a rescue. Users can pick a number from their address book for the call, for example from their mother or a friend. If the person's picture is stored on the app it will appear on the screen when the call comes through.
