There's a new aggressive Tinder alternative that will get you a date in 45 minutes

Do you fancy going on a date today? Say, in 45 minutes? 

That's the promise of new dating app Ohello, that's recently touched down in London. 

Rather than showing you a list of endless faces within a certain distance, Ohello cuts out the leg work by reducing your selection to those users within a 45 minute radius - the hope being that one of them might take interest in a date there and then.

After setting up a profile, you're presented with a screen of users in range, which you can then 'swipe' through to remove those you're not interested in.

Once you've compiled a shortlist of potential suitors, Ohello then sends out an invite to the lucky few. They receive a notification, and have five minutes to respond. The app will even suggest a local venue nearby that the two of you could meet in. 

Ohello's only foray into the UK has been in London, where - according to a staff comment on its Google Play account - it currently has around 5,000 users. That means you don't have as much 'choice' as the likes of Tinder and Bumble, but your chances of finding a quick date will improve as the user base grows.

One word of warning though, it's currently gaining a few unfavourable reviews on both iTunes and Google Play, largely for draining user's batteries due to constantly running your smartphone's GPS to keep your location up to date. 

We've signed up to the service to see if it's as easy as it claims. We'll report back on our experiences soon.
