iPhone App Creates Temporary Phone Numbers

Sometimes you need to make a call, but don’t want to give out your real number. For instance, meeting a stranger on an online dating site but not wanting them to have a real way to contact you on your personal number.

This app, called Burner, lets you do that. It gives you a temporary number that will last for $7 days, 20 talk minutes or 60 tests, depending on which of those you reach first. The app runs $1.99 and you get that free phone number. From there, you can buy additional credits when needed.
