Dating Apps

This week we rate the latest dating apps on the market. Because everybody needs somebody...

As Summer goes, we find ourselves finally enjoying our time off. Whether you are spending your holidays in some exotic place, or taking a chance to further explore your city, there’s definitely no better season to open your heart to love. Without further ado here are our top romance rated apps...


Lovoo is a new dating app that makes meeting new people incredibly fun and easy. Rated as one of the top social discovery networks, it allows you to see people in your direct vicinity thanks to its Live Radar. Easy to use, with a clean, easy interface, Lovoo can be downloaded for free with sign in via Facebook, Twitter or email. Just type in your search and use the radar to check who’s nearby; the app updates in real time so whenever you spot someone worth meeting you can start a chat and then catch up at a café just around the corner. Because we all love dating apps, but it's the face-to-face that's priceless.


Clover’s disclaimer couldn’t describe better what’s on offer here, i.e. “Instantly meet people that want to meet you.” There’s no need to spend time finding a match, because the app allows you to directly see who likes you nearby. You can filter people by intent, height, ethnicity, orientation and more, then chat for free with the ones that catch your eye. Preventing you from accidentally chatting with people who don’t like you, this app make the first date easy – then you do the rest. Goodbye, rejection.

How many times have we fallen in love with that beautiful stranger while queuing at the supermarket? Wonder whether you'll see him again? Well, everyone: Happn is the ultimate solution to this kind of romantic conundrum. When you cross paths with someone on the street, their profile will appear on your app and then, if you like each other, you can start a conversation, whilst crucially preventing you from being contacted by someone you are definitely not interested in. Hello, carpe diem.
