Ever meet someone important and need a little more info than what's on their business card?

Us, too. Which is why there's a place in our connected world for Findr.

The just-launched app allows you to type in an e-mail address and find someone’s social media footprint (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.) instantly. So for better or worse, with Findr you can 1) Easily read up on a potential job applicant, 2) See how visible you are to potential recruiters/friends or 3) Freak out over the fact that, with just an e-mail address, somebody can access your entire digital footprint.

Creator Kenny Batista was thinking about reason #2 when he designed Findr. “I decided to create Findr ... to make it easier to quickly find information on the go so that prospective interns could rapport with recruiters better,” he wrote on Product Hunt.

Batista also says there’s a web app is in the works.

Findr is currently free on iOS. Head on over to iTunes to give it a try yourself.
