VENTURE BEAT - Nov 16 - A couple of new and upcoming dating apps, including Whim and Clover, are cutting out the chit-chat and taking users straight to the dates. Whim was founded by an Okcupid Labs alumna, Eve Peters. The app hasn’t launched yet (beta-tested in LA in the summer). It will serve up potential dates based on mutual availability, location, and a few other preferences that users can reject or accept. Once a date is mutually set, Whim tells both users when and where the date will take place. Clover launched in the spring and is now adding “on-demand dating", a feature similar to Whim.
