Whether it's simply out of curiosity or due to an urgent employment or family need, it can be immensely useful to be able to run a background check on someone. Numerous firms offer such a service for a price but a new app by the name of Background Check offers a free way of checking up on someone.
Background Check is a free app but one with limitations. One free check is supplied each month with extra checks costing $0.99 for each extra use. Once a check is conducted, users can then consult details such as current and past addresses, relatives that live in the same house, property details and the all important ability to check past criminal records.
All the data is collated from BeenVerified and it appears to be quite accurate in the checks I conducted. It's worth noting the app only supports US checks though. Users can search for a specific name or they can search through their contacts.
An email address search also allows users to find someone's photos, videos, social networking information, blogs and pretty much everything else possible online. It's a pretty powerful tool indeed.
Background Check is available now for all iOS devices and it's a free app with in-app purchases available.
