Bumble !!! 5/5
By Libby Feruck
Bumble is seriously one of the best apps I have on my phone. It's so great that as a girl, I get to choose. As an ambassador, I love bringing Bumble to all my friends, peers, and my sorority. I love to show everyone the benefits of Bumble !! If you're not on Bumble, GET ON !!💛💛🐝🐝🍯🍯
Great for looking at hot people 3/5
But not for meeting them. Not a problem of mine but I hear it from coworkers that I've suggested this app to CONSTANTLY. This is true for both men and women. Just do a Google or Reddit search for "Bumble matching algorithm" for more details.
Basically, the matching algorithm for Bumble prioritizes people with more right-swipes (hots) than left-swipes (nots). The more you get, the higher on everyone's stacks of matches you're placed. After using this app for a week or so, you'll probably start to notice that you're almost never getting "matched" with anyone less than gorgeous. Maybe average people just don't use this app? Don't worry, plenty of you average folks do! You're not a freak and all those gorgeous people you're swiping right on aren't callously ignoring you. They just don't know you're out there because, just like you, we don't see people who don't have lots and lots of right-swipes, either. If you really want that hottie to see your average Joe/Jane mug and maybe, hopefully swipe back, you'll have to pay to SUPER-SWIPE (no joke, that's an actual thing) on them or they will never even know you exist. But that's actually fair because you don't know if they're still active when you pay to super-swipe them - they may not exist either! 😂
As for actual downsides: There are a ton of Instagram models trolling for new followers (you can spot them by how they include their IG handle, a ton of emoticons, and not much else in their profiles), but that's true of every online dating service. However, Bumble does nothing to weed these out. Lame. There's also theories that Bumble recycles inactive profiles from other regions so that it seems like they're providing you a never-ending supply of hotties to match with. I don't know if that's true but I've also never run out of matches with gorgeous single women in my immediate area so make of that what you will? Seems kinda shady. Those are still things that bring down my rating, though.
Overall it's not a terrible app and it has a nice interface. If you're attractive it will work great as a Tinder back-up plan - tons of matches, chats, dates, and good times. Low drama, you can ghost any time. But if you're not so attractive... well, don't feel down or turn it in on yourself like my coworkers have. At least you get to look at new, attractive people every day so hey, you've got that going for you 😄
Best part is, I can say all this and no one will even read it. High five Bumble Hive Fun Girls!
Way less pressure than other dating sites 5/5
By lucie lanier
The fact that bumble isn't just a dating site makes it way less stressful. I could be swiping to find a date or swiping to find a friend, it's my choice and that is why I love it! I recommend it to everyone, especially college kids. It's fun to see my friends on bumble as well as people that I see on campus but have never met. So glad to have found this app!!
Still no log in without Facebook? 1/5
Facebook is awful, but if I don't have an account on their service, I can't use yours? You just figure that, OMG, like totally who doesn't even have, like, a Facebook account??
Oh wait. You probably get paid to share user data with them. Riiiiight - now I get it.
So Bumble is not really private activity (which, you know, dating kinda should be), because you're feeding Bumble user data to Facebook, and they're paying you for the data. Which is why you can't let anyone in without a Facebook account, because that would go against your profit model.
Garbage on garbage on garbage 1/5
Basically any dating app is garbage now. Even in terms of bumble staff, hey couldn't make an actually functional dating app even if they invented HTML. Not to mention the developers of dating apps only acknowledge the positive and feign reactions and reviews that are negative.
Best dating app hands down!! 5/5
This app is by far the best dating app I have ever used. So much better than any other app for so many reasons! Easy to navigate and the best part is-no creepy messages! Plus it has the cutest guys!! Recommending it to all of my friends!!!
PLEASE READ BEFORE DOWNLOADING 1/5
I got the app and set up my profile. After using it for couple of months I decided to delete it and couldn't! Support said they deleted my account back in March and 6 months later my friend send me screenshots of my profile! Support is not responding, I am unable to log in and this is extremely embarrassing! They will purposely not delete your account just to have a "bigger pool" of profiles! I am about to contact lawyers! Stay away from this scam!
Not enough users in Albuquerque 1/5
By Bosque biker
Or the guys think they are super studs here..i am not a super model but i am not ugly either!!
Add more filters 3/5
By Resource 82
It would be more useful to add filters for ethnicity, diet, religion, kids, marital status, body type and what they are looking for on Bumble. I’m looking for marriage and I’m less likely to use bumble if I l have to swipe through hundreds to find an Indian girl and even then I may not know if we are a Match. Girls are sent interests from thousands of guys. The filters would help them as well.
Also allow for more than 1 day to respond. If they are out of town or just really busy then we won’t even have a Chance. Give a week or 2.
I highly doubt that after swiping 1000+ profiles not a single person in my city likes me.
pretty good 4/5
By 100 free coins for cperks
i like it
Deleted my account 1/5
I try to log in and can't , so I email support. Apparently my profile got complaints and I violated guidelines but no one seems to know which guidelines I violated.
By Hulk Smash33
I cancelled this & just got charged. I want my money back.
Girls are crazy 1/5
Sorry not sorry needs to be a little better from this me to time. 4 serious tho. All the things.
Difficult to Unsubscribe 1/5
What are you playing, Bumble? Why make it hard to unsubscribe?? Since app management is gone from iTunes, you have to dig deep into the settings for the App Store to disable subscriptions. Nobody knows about that. Very rude and unprofessional to play this type of game.
Deleted conversation 3/5
I was talking to someone and the conversation has disappeared altogether. This person and I made plans to go out and now I can’t even contact him. I have another conversation that should of expired that is still showing in my messages. Help!!! I need this fixed tonight!!! Our plans are for 9/25/2017. It would be nice to have this happen. When you fix this I will give 5 stars
Its tha sht and everyone is smellin it😂 5/5
By Deus Augus
Beautiful genuine women have a good meaningful convo
Bumble is good 5/5
Put in the work, make your profile good, be patient, go to areas with lots of people who understand the apps capabilities. Be polite :)
Met my future husband, thanks to Bumble! 5/5
After a few weeks of using Bumble, I met the man that would become my fiancé. Without Bumble, it would have never happened. I was in nursing school and didn’t have time to go out to met anyone. He was in Internal Medicine residency and was in the same boat. As soon as we met, we hit it off! I would highly recommend this app and always do recommend it to friends. It was easy to use, and had friendly people looking for something serious. We will be getting married in 2018. Thanks Bumble!😊
Nice app 5/5
What a great app.
Buzzed on Bumble!!! 5/5
I recently joined bumble within the last 2 months and I am so impressed!!! It is so much better than any other connections app. I have been finding a lot of great people on it and I don't feel embarrassed or awkward saying I use Bumble. I also love that girls make the first move, very empowering!! I definitely recommend this app for anyone!!!
Not a lot of matches, but quality. 5/5
Not a lot of matches, but quality is within all of the user base from what I've seen.
not really worth the time 2/5
the app always shows me people 4x outside my distance range. what is the point in offering the feature if it does not work? & a lot of people never answer or are just looking for instagram followers.
Uses a ton of data 2/5
This app uses 3 times the cellular data of any other dating app on my phone. And pictures take forever to load. Very annoying.
This app deleted and blocks your account if any idiotic women who gets mad and reports you for no reason without checking with the man. Garbage site and policy.

No one answers 1/5
I match with several people every day and no one ever answers. When a conversation is started, they unmatch after a few messages for no reason. Is there something I'm not getting about this app? Do I have to pay to talk to people? Ridiculous.
Good app 4/5
Good overall, with one exception 3/5
Introducing “superswipes” to compete with Tinder’s “superlikes”, and then not giving their members a single free one to start off with (not even once a month, let alone daily like Tinder does) is a bad decision on Bumble’s part. Out of curiosity, I dropped $2 to superswipe someone, only to get no swipe back. That part’s not Bumble’s fault, but it’s still a bad idea to make their users pay for something without getting a free taste of it first.
Ignores in app review setting in iOS 11 1/5
The app asked me for a review despite my phone having in app ratings disabled, so I decided to oblige and give it one star for bypassing settings
Great app 5/5
Great app, easy to use, and it's nice that the lady gets to choose who she communicates with :)
Give it a go! 5/5
Bumble is a fun dating app with quality guys that are educated and employed.
Won't work 1/5
It won't even let me get into the app
It says last step is to upload a profile photo but it won't upload and let me start using the app.... I've done everything I even deleted Jt off my Facebook apps through Facebook and downloaded it again and same thing happen
Yeah, no. 1/5
I need more than one to decide whether this new match is anyone I want to actually meet. Don't rush me. Yuck.
So I'm still looking for that special someone I'm not giving up as for bffs I have 2 bestie and the 3 of us have a good time we r like sisters but as for looking for a boyfriend relationship it's really heard but I'm not giving up!
I'm a good looking guy with a good job and this app was extremely disappointing in spite of that.
I don't have facebook, I don't want facebook, I shouldn't be forced to get something I don't want and would literally never use just for something else, regardless of how it would verify accuracy.
Social Fail 1/5
By Kate Alexis
I'm adamantly against Facebook... and don't have an account so I won't be using this app even though I thought it would be the right pick for me. Sorry, Bumble major fail. Perhaps having more than one way to verify would be wise?
Can't finish the sign up! 1/5
I've tried! The app will not let me load a picture. Without a picture you can't get into the main app.
Poof, gone 2/5
You know what my (sarcastically) favorite feature of the app is? You open it, get a good solid look at a cute person you want to swipe right on and...poof, app reloads and they're gone.
Also, no backtracking on a right swipe? Being right handed my thumb sometimes drift to the right when scrolling pics. They can only conceive that someone would accidentally swipe left?
Best dating app I've used 5/5
By sonic memories
I like bumble. I've meet great people. It's chat has better functionality than Happn or Inner Circle.
They're soooooooooooo honest.........
I love Bumble!!! 5/5
Bumble is the best!!! I've met so many cool people and it's so fun and easy to use!!
Horribly manipulative 1/5
This app used to work. It used to be great. Now it purposely withholds your matches to make you pay up. They are doing this to bait you and it’s really not ok. It’s the same garbage Tinder is pulling.
Love it! 5/5
By Shamans kinda
I absolutely love bumble!! Because girls have to start the conversation you don't have to worry about getting in contact with any weirdos! It's power to females in the best way possible! By far one of the best dating apps out there, I cannot recommend it enough!
No matches after the first few days 1/5
I sign up for this app about once a year to see if anything changes with it. I’m a big fan of online dating, and have used all the big platforms. Going to be honest, I’d like to use Bumble but I’m not getting any matches. I got one my first week, but it didn’t lead to anything. I signed up for Tinder and OKC at the same time. I’ve received about 10 matches in each weekly, and far more likes. My profile is basically the same on all three, so what’s the issue? It’s got to be technical, because I’m getting plenty of bites on the other platforms. In fact, I can’t handle all the likes on them. I swipe way more on Bumble as well, only on girls I like. I could be a paying customer if this app worked, but I don’t even see potential matches coming up. So far, I like OKCupid the most, as I get matches that lead to real dates and conversations. Should I just give up with you guys?
