Biometric-Type iPhone App Might Just Get You A Date. Or Slapped.

I’ve often suspected the staff at Cult of Mac of being significantly more attractive than bloggers at sites that don’t care how attractive their bloggers are. And now I can prove it.

Eighteen-year-old English entrepreneur Ed Nash has come up with a 99-cent iPhone app that claims to use Fibonacci’s golden ratio to scientifically determine whether or not a face is aesthetically pleasing. Just snap a photo of the hapless subject, adjust the anchor points, hit the button and viola, instant decision.

Fit or Fugly’s App Store page suggests you use it “to break the ice at dinner parties.” Sure. But we’re going to suggest “the ice” isn’t the only thing that’ll get broken when your iPhone decides the girl sitting next to you is “fugly.”
