The smart 'Burner' for iPhone app by Ad Hoc Labs creates temporary phone numbers that users can "burn" through in a second. Great for "dating, job searches, short-term projects, craigslist transactions, Twitter, Tumblr, and other social media, and for whenever else you want to be in touch and want to keep it on a private line, or don’t want to give out your real number," the Burner allows ultimate privacy.

In any situation where you don't know if you want to give out your real number, the Burner can be a great asset. Available for only $1.99, the Burner can save you the agony of changing your number after awkward encounters or if your number becomes a bit too popular with the telemarketers.
