Get this new app to make sure you don’t
Metro [UK] ^
If you’ve ever wanted a way to make sure you don’t unwittingly date one of your family members then a new app has been released just for you.
The piece of software was developed in Iceland to make sure you and your potential partner are not from the same family tree.
The Islendingabók app allows you to test how closely you’re related to your date by simply bumping your phones together.
The Android programme includes information on 720,000 people and will hopefully help the users avoid the possibility of inbreeding.
But it unfortunately came too late for one person who left a message on the app’s website, declaring: ‘If I’d had this in earlier, maybe I would not go home with my aunt.’
So as the tagline for the app says, make sure you ‘ bump the app before you bump in bed,’ otherwise you could find yourself in an awkward situation with a long lost relative.
