Given how indispensable mobile apps are these days, it's no surprise that there are tons of applications to help you find a dating partner and plan a rendezvous. Pretty much every dating site has its own mobile app, Davis says. Besides that, you can download apps designed just to manage your dating life.

"More people are spending time on their smartphones," author and online dating expert Julie Spira tells us. "Mobile dating apps make it more convenient to meet someone while you're on the go and are rapidly growing in popularity."

Our experts say there are so many to choose from, but here are some of the newest choices:

HowAboutWe
Instead of scrolling through ubiquitous profiles of singles who like baseball and long walks on the beach, why not vet them based on what they suggest doing for fun? Spira says this app does just that. Here's how it works: Post "How about we …" and use your imagination to complete the sentence. Recent examples include, "How about we sit on a park bench and make up conversations for the people we see?" and, "How about we go see a band that neither of us has heard of?" Someone nearby post something that sounds fun? Send a message. That's it! HowAboutWe's iPhone app, launched in June, integrates with Foursquare – useful if you're looking for a happy hour nearby. 10 Location-Based Mobile Dating Apps To Know About

Bizzy
Looking for a new place to take that guy you met online? Davis advises checking out Bizzy, a new app (in Beta) available for Android and Apple devices. Like Foursquare, you check into that new coffee shop down the street and rate it. But Bizzy takes things one step further by asking you for your favorite places—like your thoughts on the best food truck, best live music and best salon. The app recommends places you might like based on your answers to these questions, ratings of places you've checked out before, and preferences of people who share your taste.
