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.
Download the app, create a profile, upload some fabulous pictures, write an equally impressive bio and voila.
But of course, not all dating apps are created equal; which is why we've turned to dating coach and relationship expert David Kavanagh as well as our in-house serial dater to give us their verdict on the apps that deserve to take up space on your home screen.
The serial dater: I would never chat a guy up or ask for someone's number, I couldn't deal with the rejection, so this was way out of my comfort zone, but I did love the fact that I had all the power.
I've often had men abuse me on Tinder for not responding quickly enough to a message or turning them down for a date, but on Bumble, it's a completely different vibe - the men on here are of a whole different calibre.
If not, there's always tomorrow's suitor to look forward to.
In today's fast-food world of dating, it's the closest thing to romance on the market.
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.
Once solves that problem by providing you with one match per day.
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.
And if you've still feel hesitant about swiping right, more celebrities than you think have used their phones in pursuit of love.
