be a bunch of people on it (mostly guys) who just want to hook up.

There’s also a catch you should know about: only your first five hook up attempts are free. By downloading the app, you’re given five free tickets to start.

Each one is good for one hour of your profile being visible by potential partners.

Well fellas (and ladies), if you’re looking for a quick fix, there’s now an app for that. It’s called ‘Pure’ and it’s more focused on hookups than Tinder could hope to be. After all, you are still soliciting sex from strangers via the Internet.

Pure is only here to help you sex up and not hate yourself after. But Pure is full of people who supposedly want the same thing as you, and it makes a point not to mix business (or anything else) with pleasure.

Your presence on the service is minimal at all times.

So minimal that your photo and information is only hosted on the app for an hour at a time; then it’s all wiped away until you make it available again. It’s great that your shameful moment of need isn’t chronicled on the internet for all time and all to see.

At the same time, your listing – consisting of up to five pictures, a tagline, and your location – isn’t really around long enough to catch the attention of someone if there’s no one experiencing the same urge as you at the exact same time.

The larger the body of population around you, the better luck you’re likely to have but the range is so limited that you’re more likely to have your call go unheeded (as we did), meaning you’ll have to repeat the process again in an hour, compounding your desperation.

Each of these get-to-know-me smartphone apps allows you to control who you want to see and where you want to see them.
