Cost: Free For people who hate the forced feel of a first online date, Doing Something might be the answer.It lets you pick a match based on their date suggestion, whether it’s a sushi-making masterclass or rollercoaster ride.If you don’t like your option, you can play ‘give or take’ - where you either ‘take’ a possible match or ‘give’ them away by emailing their details to a friend.Your dates are called ‘bagels’ and the app is fun – especially if you like smartphone games.The only awkward thing is it means people in your social circle will all know you’re on the app, so if you’re not keen on having all your mates see your profile, this might not be for you. Spend most of your time complaining about life in London? It means you can match with hotties you live near, or with someone who always goes to the same bar as you.Some people I know, though, have complained that though they receive matches, there’s often a reluctance amongst users to send messages.A possible drawback could be a limited number of users – those figures aren’t available online - but it does look like a good app if music plays a significant part in your life and loves.

Tinder once had a reputation for being a ‘shagging app’ - but that's changed.Before you join, the app has to approve you as a member (a slightly daunting process) or you have to be invited.If you want to unlock certain features you either have to pay or invite other to join.
