It’s only available on i OS so far, but is coming to Android soon. Huggle: Free Like most apps, signing in with Facebook makes it very easy and quick to set up a profile.The unique thing about Huggle is that you pick (initially five of) your favourite places – be they shops, restaurants or parks – and then find people who go there too.The idea behind it is to save women from receiving leering advances or cringey chat-up lines from men, and it also takes the pressure off guys to start conversations.
You’re asked to put in lots of details (including your height, which is rare) in order to create your “story” – for example, what you’re watching, what you spend most of your money on or how you’d describe yourself in three emoji.
You can then “like” different aspects of someone’s story, be that a picture or one of their answers – you only get a handful of likes a day though.
This is an app for people really looking for relationships.
The app is easy to use but we personally found the number of messages, winks, views and favourites we received overwhelming. Once: Free The idea behind Once is to move away from today’s dating app culture and back towards traditional match-making – after a computer does the initial whittling down, real human match-makers pick a personalised match for each user every day.
But as our smartphones become increasingly powerful, fewer of us are dating from behind our desktops, rather turning to the digital devices in our pockets.
