Making a Connection

Social apps are not always about romance. Sometimes, all we want them to do is to connect us with new people. Just fish out your mobile phone, fire up an app, and connect with like-minded individuals or organise a meet-up with new friends in no time.


This app is perfect for couples who want to stay connected. Let your partner know that you are thinking about him or her by tapping on a heart button or source for date ideas just by scrolling through this app. There is also a personalised space where you can share your best snaps from a memorable day.

Available on: Android and iOS, free

Each user uploads a snippet containing interesting trivia about him or her, which is superimposed on a blurred-out photograph of the person. The photograph is only revealed when an interested party taps on it.

Forget stilted online chatter, LunchClick is a dating app that hopes to take romance offline. Unlike conventional online dating, users do not engage in small talk via an in-app chat. Rather, they take turns asking questions that touch on interests and aspirations. Singles who express a mutual interest to meet after the “Q&A” can then arrange a date.
