Female-oriented dating app that puts safe and respectful communication first. Bumble provides a quick matching system based on mutual opt-ins, empowering women to start a conversation, thus avoiding unwanted messages. However, if no communication takes place within 24 hours, your connection disappears forever, which is hardly convenient for those who prefer to give a lot of thought before starting a new relationship.

Pros:

  • protection from unwanted messages
  • photo-messenger.

Cons:

  • 24-hour limit to start a conversation
  • dialogues between different sexes can be initiated only by women
  • sign in with Facebook to create an account.

    Are these even real people?!
    I have messages every guy I’ve matched with (which I can count on one hand being such a small sample to start with) immediately after I’m notified we matched and have yet to get a response back. I think it’s all bogus. Has anyone actually met real normal people on here? I live in a big city so it’s not just a total lack of people but pretty discouraging.

    Runs out of people
    Stops showing you new people saying that you’re out” but then will hours later

    Can’t use it
    Stuck on the facebook sign in page. Tried deleting/reinstalling but to no avail.

    Privacy statement
    Go to Bumble’s website and take the time to check out their privacy statement. It is horrendous. Talk about corporate harassment. Bumble has the potential to be the most private info non-friendly app since Facebook, and with less of an incentive. Behind the gimmick and the superficial facade, it’s just another fundamental violation of your marketable personal information. Having compared Bumble to other dating apps

  5. Softshellcrabs

    To many bugs
    If I attempt to the change the pictures on my profile the app crashes. Enough said.

    Facebook crapp
    Just another Facebook driven app. I didn’t realize anyone was still dumb enough to use that site.

  7. Sukainas

    :/ guess not for me
    Are all these apps on by Facebook? I feel like so many apps are losing out on more customers because you have to link it to a Facebook page. Not everyone likes or has a Facebook anymore. I stay there should be options for signing up, what happened to the good old days of what’s your email address

    Bumble
    First of all, the makers of this app should be ashamed of themselves for putting so many fake reviews here. Second, they wouldn’t have to rely on fake reviews if they correctly diagnosed current issues with dating apps. They all heavily favor women with choice and convenience. Giving women even more benefits only compounds the problem. They’ll go from choosing the top 10% to the 1%. Also, many women aren’t willing to put up with pressure of messaging first. The whole premise is just a recipe for disaster.

    Worst App Ever
    This app is extremely laggy and full of bugs. I would not recommend it to any of my friends.

  10. OngShannon

    Geolocation bad, design ok
    Not many ppl in my area and I live in SF so that’s weird. Bit buggy they should have privately released to fix bugs

  11. JackAtana

    Doesn’t Work Anymore
    It used to be able to locate me, now it can’t. Broken and unusable, plain and simple.

  12. Sm140

    Fake profiles created by bumbles Jennifer stith
    I was matched with Jennifer Stith and she chatted me up for three days. I asked for her number and she told me she was just here for bumble compliance. So bumble is secretly placing employees who have no intention of dating online to attract business. They wasted my time. Be aware.

  13. SocialmediaGUY22

    Never works
    Girls never message they just match and do nothing, pointless app don’t download

  14. antobaduable

    Buggy now, but potential to be cool
    Photos in my edit screen are not the photos that are showing on my preview profile – it’s not updating my saved changes. You can’t import FB photos again after the initial profile setup, only from your phone (a feature Tinder doesn’t have). I imagine distance will be editable after a substantial user base is accumulated. Should be able to change or hide job/college, not always up to date on FB.

  15. Shdidsnzbdiddb

    Waste of data
    This app is completely useless. You go through 4 people and then you’re out of matches. The worst.

  16. Stephkeelan

    Not Interested
    Not all women want to be required to message their matches first, let alone within a day of matching with them.

  17. Hehussbdb

    Really lame.
    I like guys to message me first this app makes no sense. And no one uses it anyway…

  18. TuckFinder

    Impossible.
    I get why this app was made, it makes girls feel more comfortable. But this just isn’t a good app because it makes girls seem like elitists–sure on one hand, it gets rid of the creeps, but on the other hand, if you’re not the most perfect, desirable person on the planet then good luck. I don’t do bad for myself in person, but then again I’m no 10. This isn’t made for the everyday person, and I believe this app is a bunch of bs. Bad concept, not my thing.

  19. Song246

    App is not loading.
    Just downloaded app but it’s not loading.

  20. Hambubger1

    Poor app
    This app is very buggy. The distance filter just doesn’t work at all. Profiles keep reappearing even after I swipe on them. After remaking my account multiple times to try and fix these issues I have noticed that profiles are often shown in the same order as before no matter what distance or age filter is set. This app needs to be updated asap if it hopes to compete with tinder

  21. KyMoOC

    Profile lists my employer, are you kidding me!?!?!!
    This app could have been something, however because I have my employer listed on Facebook you’ve posted on my profile with NO way to remove it. I do NOT want this kind of information posted on a dating app. I want some privacy. Absolutely absurd I can’t remove this without deleting it from my Facebook profile first. And how do you select the pictures. No ability to upload or choose which picture from my FB photos I’d like to have posted. Some of the pictures Bumble selected were so old too. I like the fact Tinder ha some competition, but you’ll need to do an update to fix issues mentioned. I deleted my profile when I realtors I could fix these issues.

  22. ejc90

    LGBT be warned
    There’s something wrong with the app’s algorithm because I am a gay man and have definitely been getting straight matches. I asked Bumble and they assured me gay/bi people are matched together, but they are wrong.

  23. UniversityCoop

    Bummer
    Too many fake profiles

  24. SlimReaper35

    I’ve literally never written a review before this.
    My title sums up my frustration with this app. I have an iPhone 6 with the latest iOS installed. Yet Bumble refuses to load unless I uninstall the app then reinstall it. Even when I did manage to get it loaded, it wouldn’t send notifications even though I have them enabled. I would give this zero stars if it was possible. If the app won’t load, it is essentially only taking up space on my phone. Avoid.

  25. agentzilla

    doesn’t work at all
    and there is zero support for it.

  26. Izzyoko

    would love to try it.
    However, like tinder, this app forces you to use Facebook. something I stopped using many years ago. gag.

  27. Farshad24

    Silly app
    This app is really silly. Guys will not go on there because they are being treated with a double standard. Girls will get off of it because there will be no guys.

  28. Eap2067

    Another tinder
    Another tinder…have matches but don’t get messaged. What’s the point of this app if the girls don’t message.

  29. PhilBrandn

    So awful
    There’s literally no one on this app. Tinder is way better.

  30. omfgitsmateo

    Buggy, Can’t login/signup
    Tried connecting with Facebook both app and mweb, Bumble just loads forever.
