The low-down: Tired of unsolicited dick pics and creeps pestering you for nudes? Created by former Tinder co-founder Whitney Wolfe, the ultimate female-friendly app lets women run the show. It's only the woman that has the opportunity to send the first message.
Billed as a safe, friendly rival to Tinder, this app works on the same premise: users swipe right to approve and left to decline. If you match and don't say anything to a new connection within 24 hours, they're deleted (for same-sex relationships, this works both ways). In the words of Wolfe: "You're not going to go on a dating app where women make the first move if you don't respect women." Also good to know: pornographic images are banned.
As soon as I signed up we matched and we're about to go on a first date.
The only downside is that my ex-boyfriend lives nearby so it's like he's literally always on my radar.
The expert: I like the fact there is an external human element to this app.
I would always recommend using a dating service where someone is actually screening people for their compatibility.
While you're usually all about female empowerment, you're not wearing the right shoes to chase him down the street to exchange numbers, or you know, tell him he's The One?
Dejected, you can't help but think Mr Right is now untraceable - there goes your happy ever after.
Happn allows for conversation only when you've both liked each other and you match.
Enter Happn, the app which finds the people you've crossed paths with throughout the day.
Half creepy and half ingenious, the app uses GPS tracking to present you with a list of people you've come into contact with.
A dating app that reduces the chance of harassment? The expert: I really like the idea of this app because it creates a safe environment for women online.
It's also the perfect opportunity for women to take control. I find that women are more cautious when it comes to initiating contact but this could be the perfect way to eradicate the 'damsel in distress' attitude, where women are seen as 'needing a man' to take the lead.
Too much choice can also be confusing for people, they get disinterested because there are so many other options - this is the perfect app if you want to slow things down.
