Overall great 4/5
I was able to talk with some hella rad guys but I decided I wasn't ready to date. I feel like a jerk so I deleted the app.
It would be nice to have preference filters for things like religion, interests, etc
Great App! 5/5
Fun and easy to use wish more girls would like me though! Haha
Five stars because it's one of the only apps that allows you too o contact people for free. Don't have to pay to send messages like some.
Fake as **** EDITED 3/5
Bumble is obviously listening to their users, as there is now a photo verification system to weed out fake profiles. I, personally, have seen an improvement in the app since this was implemented. Hey, Bumble - you should make photo verification mandatory for all users. It's a great system!
The app is still buggy though. Occasionally, all of my matches will disappear for no apparent reason - all at once. Also, the app steadfastly ignores my distance settings. Not only does it constantly show me profiles outside of the range I've set, but the app also randomly changes the range itself for no apparent reason. Seems like these would be easy bugs to fix. Bumble, you listening?
While there are definitely some real women on here, so many of these profiles are obviously fake. Seriously, everyone is drop dead super model gorgeous and is either a lawyer or in medicine. Of course they are. What they like and where they went to school seem to conveniently always be virtually the same as me...almost like they were generated by a bot that is phishing my Facebook account...ahem.
I've been able to predict with a stunning amount of accuracy which profiles are actually real and will match with me, and which don't. It's just...obviously mostly fake. At least I'm not paying money for this.
Very easy to use. 4/5
No complaints here, besides it's asking me to write a review all the time.
Picture problems 1/5
The app will not let me upload a picture so I can't finish my profile.
Cute guy 4/5
By Handsome Jew
Bubble has done a great job with their verification of real people with real profiles! I don't get match notifications from the app.. this is one thing that has been lacking for me.
Photo view glitch 4/5
When you click on a photo in a profile you've matched with it takes you to full screen with no way to exit the photo view. I have to just quit the app
Scam. Don't pay them 1/5
So I signed up for this for a week subscription in mid June. I then deleted my profile and deleted the app. Come to find they are billing me for the last six weeks anyway. Oh and when I download the app it asks me to choose a plan but wait they are already being paid. Such a scam. I will be disputing the charges if they don't fix and reimburse. Scammmmmmmmm is what this app is.
Social Guru 5/5
By Sammy Doc
Amazing way to meet new people of all sorts of walks of life
Must have Facebook 1/5
I downloaded this app, opened it, then couldn't use it because it requires a Facebook account to get past the opening screen. I deactivated my Facebook account years ago and felt so free and never want to go back. So no Bumble for me. ☹️
Was gud 5/5
Well, thought this was a good idea, as a woman on this app. But it seems like they just want you to pay. The first week my queue was full, as the 24 hour period passed for each (only 2 attempted contacts), the "pay to play"circle area has 50 matches and nothing in the free match circles. Just an old match left in gray.. haven't been able to get any info on this online. Seems that this app is baiting you to pay...🤑🤥
Doesn't work 1/5
I downloaded this twice. Both times I made my profile. And there is no swipe left or right to see pictures of any kind. Is just a blank page with a grey honeycomb kinda thing in the middle. First time I waited a few hours. Thinking maybe I have to wait for them to send me matches. But nothing. So I deleted it. And downloaded it again. Thought maybe it has a bug. But the second time. Had the same thing. So I guess that how the app is.... maybe I have to buy a "bumble for dummies". 🤷🏻♀️
Solid app 5/5
Love it 5/5
Best dating app ever 5/5
Simple interface and easy to use. Best dating app ever.
A Different approach 5/5
An interesting approach but one that lets you know where you stand. :-)
iOS 10 1/5
It needs iOS 10?? It's not a game it's a simple swiping app
By Paula Garrant, MA
So it is a great way to meet people! I think the only thing that I would add, would be height...it. can be awkward to ask a man how tall he is...because I am tall, height is really important!
Site makes you public on its own 2/5
I will constantly turn my privacy settings off public and find that my site is still live and active as if bumble decides when to alter your settings. You have to completely log out of app in order to not be seen.
Also, I feel there needs to be more questions to be answered in the users profile's, it makes conversations flow better.
Great concept 5/5
By Mr. Bobdobalina
Having girls message first removes the cheesy pickup lines / lessens the creepiness of tinder.
Bumble has crap customer service 1/5
I am a trans girl, and the app wouldn't let me change my name! It says you have to change it on your Facebook, but I did that and nothing happened!
After reaching out 3 times, I got a response from bumble simply REPEATING that I needed to Change it on Facebook. It was like they hadn't read any of my feedback. So I got frustrated, deleted everything, then remade my account with my new name. Now, I don't get many matches. It's because "accounts that are deleted and remade quickly aren't shown to our best bees". If somebody from bumble wants to reach out to me and make this right, i would be happy to take my 1-star review down.
Great App 5/5
Met a few really cool people. No complaints. Just a few awesome date nights✨🌊
July 2017 Update:
Bumble recently updated the app to include something called bumble coins or something and these are used in the same manner one uses superlikes on tinder. The thing is, though, that everytime I close the application and relaunch it, I begin again with a zero balance in these new coins. This happens irrespective of whether or not I have used them all and has cost me aton of money. At first, I thought I was just being forgetful and that I really had burned through every last coin. Now, I know for a fact that bumble has been quietly robbing me. Im done.
The app used to work great. I'm an attractive 28yo male who gets connections all the time through any dating platform I use... including... up until recently (most recent install so appx the last month or so) bumble. Now, I have gotten about 2 matches in the last four weeks and use the app routinely. Not sure what is happening, but something is working right on here. I use the same exact profile everywhere else and have no problem getting matches.
*developer - I don't really want to get a response about how its just my face or some crap. Just say your looking into it or something.
Login w/email 1/5
I haven't had Facebook in six years and would love to use this app but refuse to create a Facebook for it. What a bummer
I paid for Boost, was charged and I phone confirm I'm subscribed but I can't access any of the features and bumble keeps prompting me to subscribe. I've emailed twice over the last few days with no response.
Best App! 5/5
This is the app everyone is using now!!!!
Guess I'm not meant to Bumble 1/5
By Facebook account? Ceebs
App requires you have a Facebook account. Seeing as I deleted mine do to Facebook being a cesspool of negativity, and the virtual hub of the geriatric. Guess I'm not meant to bumble. C'est la vie.
By Tú tiene una cabeza calva
It annoyed me how they stressed that it was free, but then makes you pay if you want to see who swiped you.
Works some if the time 5/5
Best app for thumb exercise
Nothing but the truth 5/5
As a guy I appreciate the innovative thinking the former Tinder exec had when getting this app public. She gave women the chance of first contact. That makes sense to me. At least this way- guys can be sure a woman has interest without waiting and wondering- will they respond to my message. So far - so good! This app must have made the gossip circles among flight attendants though- ha ha So many.
Good experience, one possible improvement 4/5
I've talked with a ton of interesting people here. Unfortunately, there isn't anyone I've talked with that I both parties were interested in pursuing anything further, but that's life.
I think a cool thing to add could possibly be a simple "reasoning for swipe" section. What I mean for this is: when I swipe right on someone, I want to let her know that I'm looking for friendship or an intimate/long term relationship. What could happen is when I swipe right, I have to choose my interest in swiping right "1) someone to talk with, 2) friends, 3) dating, 4) long term relationship".
This would save time for both parties with knowing why they swiped right and it properly sets both people's expectations.
Helped me learn how to read! 5/5
I told people what I did today. They said I did good. I think I feel better. Thanks bumble.
Seriously... Stop 1/5
Asking me for a review
Easy to get started, easy to use! 5/5
By awesome variety!
PLEASE PROVIDE AN UPDATE!! YOUR APP CRASHES ALL THE TIME AND THERE IS NO SOLUTION TO THE PROBLEM.
I don't like social media, got rid of all of it. I just want to find some friends and maybe a guy. I don't want to have to use fb to sign in... Disappointed. Why does FB have to be linked to EVERYTHING? 😑 thanks for nothing guys.
Needs improvements! 3/5
By Mich H from Yelp
Add opposite gender BFF feature too but without mixing them. Add description like eye color, hair color, height, personality, preferences to narrow down. Maybe include things to filter out. Add interests as likes and dislikes to see what we have in common. I want to write more but the bio section is small, if more was added I can fit other things into my bio. I'd like to keep my profile separate if I want to use more than a feature like BFF and date. Everything is mixed now. Sunglasses pictures maybe should be banned as some people on include glasses on all pictures.
The downside of this app is that there is a lot of ghosting. It needs something to avoid that. Maybe include quizzes for both. I would like to see something saying like its your turn to respond in highlighted form on the messages or with an icon... as sometimes I forget to respond or as there are so many responses it can get hidden with the other messages.
I keep updating the app but it's the same, only takes care of bugs. The good thing is that verification was added. This app needs innovation and creativity... I would be willing to help as I'm very tech-savvy.
What's the point of making women go first if the majority of them aren't even going to message you?
I love this APP 5/5
By Brett Tuck
This dating app bears more fruit than any app ever for me
Solid Dating App 5/5
Platform works well and there's plenty of fish in the sea (Austin).
Good quality, but needs better selection 4/5
By 20 somethin
1. Really easy to use
2. The actual design is appeasing- I like the brightness of it
3. By me having to reach out to guys, it's been helping me come out of my comfort zone and become more active in my own courtship. Do people still use that word? Idk 🤷🏾♀️
For a long time, I would wait until a guy reached out to me. But now that it's modern times and all, I can take control which builds my confidence. It's a little scary, a little exciting. Which everything should be in life.
4. I wish there was a little more diversity. At least for me up in Chicago, it seems like all the guys on bumble are the same type of guy. That's not necessarily Bumble's fault. But maybe marketing to more guy's of color would be helpful for girls like me
Worked great, then fell off 1/5
Update: Confirmed. A couple more weeks have passed and still zero matches. This app is dead, don't bother.
When I first got the app it was very active. Matches came in daily and I got to meet some interesting people. Then after I got into a relationship lasting a few months and returned it's been completely dead. I haven't had a quality person match me in about a month. There's really no reason to come back to the app anymore because of this. I really appreciated this app at first so it's upsetting having to let it go.
Unable to view matches 1/5
This app is hard to view Matches .. it's says 24hrs but it does not show matches I think this is defected.
Now we don't Shane to put in effo 5/5
Love it! 5/5
Bumble is a great dating app! Ladies, be prepared to just take the bullet and just talk to the men. It's fun and I loved it!
It's alright 3/5
It's a good app, but doesn't find anyone around me, but 20-40 miles away, I've gone through settings and moved the location wise around, and I can sit next to a buddy and his will bring up people 1-40 miles around him. Definitely expected something more from this app, and the fake profiles are everywhere
