The slogan: "Women make the first move" Availability: i Phone, i Pad, Kindle Fire or Android Cost: Free 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.

The app combines digital dating technology and a team of human matchmakers, generating a specifically hand-picked match every day. You have 24 hours to decide if you like each other - if you match, you can go from there.

Enter Happn, the app which finds the people you've crossed paths with throughout the day.
