The app offers a variety of excuses, ranging from minor housemate emergencies and police warnings to simulated house fires, that users can use to leave a date. The app also includes a panic button, which when pressed, calls the user and texts their phone with the chosen excuse.
The team’s hard work and innovation paid off, as they walked away from PubHack with an award for ‘Best Design’ and were runners-up for ‘Best Overall Project’. Since its debut at PubHack, Date Escape has received coverage in local and national media and has been revamped for release before Valentine’s Day. The app has been praised for its ingenuity and its ability to provide users with a quick and easy solution to an uncomfortable situation.
