This hook up app for friends (and friends of friends) is the equivalent of passing 'I Like You' notes in class.
The USP: Hook up with the people you walk past on the street.
They've just launched a premium service for people with the hallowed blue tick on Twitter.
If you lack inhibition, Hinge could throw the door wide open. If dating apps have an 'atmosphere', then How About We is a pleasant summer garden party where people enjoy polite conversation and no one makes an inappropriate lunge on anyone else until at least 1 am.
The USP: Endless personality quiz questions that give you a match percentage with would-be partners. The USP: It's a huge ocean, with more members than any of the others (around 70 million).
Cons: Just because you both like Kings of Leon doesn't really mean you're made for each other...
Verdict: A nice concept and considering music is a personal passion that connect a lot of people, Tastebuds actually has more of a USP than most niche interest apps.
Cons: After sending someone a message, you're notified when they're checking your profile, which means you can actually see yourself being rejected in real time. Verdict: Pulling together the best elements of other older dating apps, Inner Circle is the best all-rounder out there with the highest quantity of people you'd actually like to meet.
£5 a week for the advanced user options is just too much, though.
Pros: You can weed out people with traits or points of view you find simply unacceptable. Cons: Too many basic functions are restricted to paid membership. Pros: Unlike most of the other apps, doing the basics on POF – looking at profiles, sending and reading messages – is absolutely free.
Verdict: Worth a shot, if only to kill time answering bizarre questions about yourself. Cons: A high number of sexually frustrated virgin-trolls means a lot of women find using it a harrowing experience, which understandably makes them cagey when you come along.
Cons: If the date goes horribly, there are no assurances you won't bump into her when you're buying milk a few days later.
Also, spend too much time on it and you start getting paranoid you're seeing 'someone you liked on Happn' every time you sit in your local cafe. If you actively pursue a date on Hinge, discretion mustn't be an issue – your friends are bound to find out.
The USP: Connect with verified millionaires Pros: The site boasts a large portfolio of high earners and offers 24/7 customer service for their members. Luxy does however offer high security to protect your privacy and weeds out people looking for a sugar daddy or mumma.
