Love rats of the world, rejoice! No longer do you need two mobiles to orchestrate your double lives, because a new app can give you two numbers for the same phone.
As a kid I was always told cheaters will never prosper, but on this app it looks like they very well could. The revolutionary app, called Swytch, allows users to have up to five additional mobile numbers to use on their existing smartphone.
After the cyber attacks on Ashley Madison – which revealed millions of cheating men – I’m pretty sure they’re looking for a new way to be unfaithful and this could well be it.
This new service essentially means they can call or text somebody they shouldn’t after simply selecting which number they wish to use – allowing these ‘orrible bastards to juggle their relationships.
All Smartphone users need to do it just download the free app – available on iPhone and Android – and activate a new number to use.
Users are then given 50p credit, with a phone call to a landline costing 5p a minute, calls to mobiles 6p a minute and text messages also costing 6p each.
CEO and Co-Founder of the innovative app, Chris Michael, said that when developing such an app it was inevitable that it ‘could also attract the unfaithful ones’.
If having access to more than one number makes it easier for people to have affairs, then it happened a long time ago when Pay As You Go SIM cards became available. Swytch makes it possible for people to have multiple numbers on their existing mobile phone, and while this may assist people who have already decided to have affairs, I cannot believe that would be a factor in their decision to start one. Facebook made it easier to meet people and dating app Tinder literally made it easier to hook up with people.
To be fair to the guys behind the app – despite all the shaming – the app will be helpful those who want to keep their business and private lives separate.
