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.

    Privacy Issues
    Showing my employer and education to everyone by default, with the inability to change that, is a major issue for me that makes the app unusable. Please give us the option to show this information only if we choose.

    Straight up sexist
    Need I say more? This app is taking a step back in gender equality, and frankly equality in general. Men and women do not have the same experience using this app. Straight people and same-sex couples do not share the same user experience either. That just isn’t right. Beautiful user interface though.

    This App Doesn’t Make Sense
    Women like the idea of men approaching them. The concept of having women message men first doesn’t make sense. If I’m swiping right I’ve already given permission” for the guy to message me. I shouldn’t have to do the work. He should.”

    Another app requiring Facebook
    I get it. Founder for this cofounded Tinder. But please understand that not everyone has or wants to have a Facebook account to use your app. That is a terrible requirement. That barrier to entry will keep people out, myself included. I’m not setting up a Facebook just for this app.

  5. Hehussbdb

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

  6. AKoppandi

    No facebook, no app
    Not everyone has or wants to have a facebook…so I can’t use this app?? BOLOGNA.

    Promising but not quite there
    Seeing better quality guys here than on OK Cupid, but the app crashes sometimes. Also, there’s no clear way to see if someone has responded to your message, or written to you. I assumed the guys I wrote hadn’t written me back- then I realized they did but there was no ‘new message’ flag for me to see that right away. Miscommunication is easy. Debating whether I should stay on it.

  8. Truth 123 should be unique

    Showing same 4 people over and over
    Terrible bugs. Only showing 4 people and repeating. UI is not even close to Tinder. Direct competitor? What a joke. Giving it one star mainly not for poor execution but for the vision. Gender biased is just not cool for this era. Go Tinder!

  9. Shdidsnzbdiddb

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

    Broken
    Literally get no text anywhere. Can’t do anything.

    Sexist
    This is stupid

  12. Benjamin So

    No one uses this app
    You can’t have a social app if no one is using it. Can’t even test out the features of this app because Looks like you’re out of people…” and no inviting people I already know is not gonna help me out.”

  13. PorcelainAutopsy

    Facebook!
    I don’t have Facebook how am I or others who don’t have Facebook to use your app?!

  14. 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.

  15. Ghjjhfdfff

    Review
    Agree with some of the other guys. Girls are making the connection and then not messaging which sort of makes this whole business model pointless.

    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.

  17. siberian7

    Could the app be more broken?
    This fails to load properly on an iPhone 6. Updates also fail to load. You might want to fix it. My other 200 apps work just fine.

    Need to fix picture cropping
    I tried this for the first time last night and my pictures came out huge because of the cropping tool on the app. You guys need to make the cropping tool better so pictures can come out better and in my case smaller..

    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

  20. Lc1728037796?!:)/&!:

    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.

  21. ZachAJ

    Novel concept, but can’t fight millions of years of evolution
    Very nicely designed app, but you can’t change human nature — or evolution over millions of years. Men approach women… Women want to be pursued. Hard to change that when there are other options. It would be great and noble for the feminist movement and equality in general for this to change, but it’s not going to happen because of this app. Women get on, get a ton of matches, then ignore the app because it’s easier to get hit on through Tinder, OKCupid, etc. Nice try, but the concept just doesn’t work.

  22. a.wong

    Broken
    None of the text in the app show up. Can’t register cause don’t know what it is asking for.

  23. Kenny Winfield

    Have to link with Facebook
    I’d love this app. It looks fantastic, and seems like exactly what I’ve been looking for. But unfortunately I can’t use it, because like a vast and quickly growing group of young adults I’ve deleted my Facebook. I’d happily authenticate with a credit card, but no, that’s not an option. Oh well.

  24. Will Foster

    Pulls information from my FB that’s set to private.
    My old job shows up as my job on the app as if it’s my current job even though I haven’t worked it for two years and it’s set to me only” privacy setting.”

  25. 71drizzt

    Get rid of Facebook
    Don’t use Facebook any more so I guess I can’t use this app. Disappointing…

  26. Lumadrid122311

    Boo. Must have Facebook to use.
    All I want for Christmas is a tinder-like dating app that doesn’t require facebook.

  27. 5tephenK

    Looks good but
    When I went to change my settings, I went from having profiles show up to none within a 100 mile radius. I’m in the DMV area and find that hard to believe.

  28. 5teph3nR0th

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

  29. Dissapointedddddd

    Good concept but something doesn’t add up
    I like the idea of the app and the idea of a girl messaging me first to show that she actually is interested, but I can’t help but notice that every single girl I swipe through fits the same persona. They all look like they could be models, they all attend or have attended prestigious colleges, and they all look like they came from upper class families who clearly have more than a few dollars to spare. It’s fairly off-putting seeing as this is still essentially a superficial hot or not” app just that this one gives the upper hand to women. It’s extremely strange that I do not see any variety in women
