S ingles no longer have to rely on a phone call from a friend with a pretend emergency as an excuse to escape an awkward date.

Because thanks to online dating site eHarmony, the fake phone call can be scheduled by downloading the Bad Date Rescue App onto your mobile for free.

Users of the conniving app can set up a pre-recorded incoming call from their mother, friend, neighbour or even boss, and go after a dictated script if improvisation is not a strength.

Cunning! Created by eHarmony, the Bad Date Rescue App provides singles with a ideal excuse to leave the not-so flawless date

The call can be arranged for a specific time beforehand and then disregarded if, to your surprise, you are actually liking yourself, but a quick press of a button while he’s perusing the drinks menu can also save you by alerting the ‘Five 2nd’ rescue call.

And the hilarious app has been designed to make the call as realistic as possible so your date has no idea what’s happening.

With the help of a multiplicity of settings, you can set it up to look as if anyone from your contact list is calling you.

So even if you call her ‘mom’, ‘mum’ or just ‘home’, the display will be believable regardless of what you hear on the other end.

Also customisable is the information you receive on accepting the call so that if he’s attempting to impress you in an art gallery, he will be able to hear a voice on the other end.

Acute exit! The hilarious app offers a choice of callers, customisable display settings and a diversity of scheduling options

For your mother, a scripted Mid-Western accented woman will tell you all about how ‘the darn DVD player you gave us for Christmas’ isn’t working and how your father needs to witness something for a presentation so you need to come home and help fix it.

The explanation, if you can get through it without creasing up with laughter is long-winded, just as it most likely would be if the situation were playing out in reality.

If having your mother call cramps your style, your boss can you instead and tell you: ‘Listen this isn’t your fault but we’re gonna need you to clean it up.’

A detailed monologue warns you that there are software issues at the office that have prevented him sending a data package and you have to meet him there as soon as possible.

The more accomplished actors on the dating scene can loosely nod, responding in whatever way they feel seems authentic and then make their excuse for a hasty exit.

For those who are a little less familiar with outright lounging, a pre-recorded eHarmony representative can also talk you through a step by step guide of things to say as you pretend to listen to the caller, and instruct you what kinds of facial expressions to make.

This option is even available in Spanish.

Other more arousing and dramatic exit strategies include a sister in labour and a neighbour with a leak.

The cheeky app has already won rave reviews tho’ it does have a few minor technical flaws.

Users have to reminisce to turn their phones to silent so that the fake ring tone doesn’t interfere with a real one while the phone is up to your ear.

And as one reviewer pointed out, iPhone Four’s Siri will totally deepthroat your cover if you don’t deactivate her too which could be very embarrassing.
