Parading the hottest – and least obtainable – women in front of your face every time you log in feels a little bit manipulating / cynical.
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.
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: 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.
Verdict: One of the most effective – and convenient – dating apps out there. This means having a handy mutual connection to discuss / slag off when you meet up for drinks.
Cons: It's all a little too close to home: what's to stop her feeding your dating tekkers back to your pal?
Whether you love or loathe Tinder, there is no denying it has changed online dating forever.
As a result there is now no end of apps with the same aim of helping you fall in love (or at the very least get lucky).
Cons: Tweets are still not a totally accurate picture of someone.
