WASHINGTON -- It's a good time for the social media savvy to be making moves.

Two new apps make it easier to meet your partner, then cheat on him.

Wingman is a new application for the iPhone and Android phones that works with Foursquare to meet others, when a human assist just won't do.

The program was written late at night by "a few super-social nerds," according to their site, making it easier for users to flirt.

If love is in the air, you would receive this message:

"Someone at (insert venue) has sent you a Wingman. Check out (venue, again)'s screen to see if there's anyone you like!"

Wingman allows two people within 10 feet to indicate their interest in one another, but only relays the message if both parties are like minded.

For those who have settled into marital bliss -- using Wingman or any other forum to meet potential spouses -- another app allows users to continue to make moves.

Call and Text Eraser, or CATE, seeks out messages from a clandestine partner, receives them without any notice, and can clear any trace from your mobile device.

Only the app owner has the pass code to access the telltale communiques.

Already available on Droid, and soon on Blackberry, the app was designed by a former Palm Beach area cop after his friend's phone was hacked by his spouse.

"I had a good friend of mine who went through a divorce because his wife was finding things," creator Phillip Immler tells First Coast News.

"They could (now) block certain people they wanted to block at certain times. And a fortunate benefit of it is for people who do cheat."
