No gifs 2/5
Why did bumble get rid of gifs!
Could actually be good but fails miserably 1/5
By Dj edward scissorhands
Better than Tinder with meeting people. I have matched up with actually decent people that look good. But... you have to swipe up to view pictures. And there’s must be some tech issue becuase every time I swipe up it will swipe left. So someone you’re attracted in and want to see more about you swipe left on with is annoying af. I’ve lost out on some matches because of this to people I found quite attractive. They need to fix that asap. Another issue I’ve had is it constantly says “Where are you? We’re having trouble determining your location.” I use a ton of location-based apps and never have a issue also I use Verizon and am in a metro-populated area so it’s another annoying glitch. Then when it finds where you are it looses its spot where you are looking at another potential match. It’s super annoying you miss out on swiping on people you’re interested in due to their software problems.
Waste of money 1/5
I’ve been on this app for weeks now and I’ve had one like and it’s not even a person I swiped right to. Well not extend subscription
Change the colors 1/5

White words with yellow background is hard to read! Please change to the appropriate color contrast.
Not worth the effort 1/5
By Hollywood Guy 27
6 months of swiping and not a single conversation. Waste of time.
By Cody vano
Swiping right doesn’t mean you’ll get swipes back which is unfortunate. Not sure if there’s an algorithm on this app or what but it doesn’t seem like it works for everybody
Haven’t got any matches..,
17+ is very deceitful! I started to make my account and when I typed in my age it was like “You have to be 18 or older” you guys should probably changed the age on the description of the app. K. Thank u, next!
Guys don’t waste your money 1/5
Bumble like tinder is a useless app for most men. In an age of #metoo this app basically is another unicorn finding app. For most guys you are better of meeting women at star bucks or at a bar. Bumble on top makes its even more difficult for an average guy cause it’s empowering women by blocking men from making the first move. In other word it’s just pathetic but hey #metoo empowerment for sluts and fk boys
Snooze Feature 1/5
I was really upset to find that all my matches were notified when I turned off the “snooze” feature. I thought the function of this feature was to allow you to take a break without notifying existing matches. Clearly that’s not the reality. If you’re going to keep this feature, you should at least warn users that it will notify matches when they switch modes. Not cool!
Everything was fine until iOS 12.1.1 1/5
Have a brand new XR. The phone updated to iOS 12.1.1, and now the app stopped working. The App Store tells me to update, but when I attempt it, it tries downloading then stops, and I am unable to open the app.
GIF’s not working 5/5
Oh no! Where did the GIF option go?! That’s the sole way I flirt now 😂🤦🏻♀️
The app never tells me if I have a message. I have to go and look at all my. Amber notifications to see if a message was sent or just go into my messages every so often. Please update! This is a common error I see a lot with this apps updates. I think it’s fixed then another update rolls out and it’s back to not showing notifications
Not happy with the newest update!!!! 3/5
I love some of the new changes that have come to Bumble, but I’m so upset about losing gifs! They’re such a fun way to communicate and that goes beyond the everyday nature of just texting. I really hope this was just a test and that they’ll be back.
Inactive members 3/5
Should not be viewable
Unable to upload more photos 2/5
Bumble settings on my iPhone isn’t giving me an option to allow.
Well designed app that is a fail 3/5
I think I have been on this app for over a year now. The app is well designed and easy to use. There seems to be an adequate user base to have a match or maybe not.
This app maybe better suited to the 20-30 something crowd then me. The outcomes and behavor of users is not worth the price they ask for this service. Maybe $2 a month would be more fitting.
It maybe my generation where we have our friends and have a lower tolerance for potential bs but the feeling is nobody is interested in chatting or meeting. For some reason this app is a busy box or thumb gym.
95% of the time woman write and I respond they don’t write back. It is at a level that is just bizarre. Most of the none responders only type “Hi first name” so I am thinking that these are sent by a bot. If true that is sad and only makes me feel like this app is not worth it. Why spend money on dead ends.
I gave it 3 stars since it is a good idea and clean easy to use app. But too expensive and does not cultivate connection of any kind.
NO MORE GIFS 3/5
The GIF functionality is no longer available. This was one of the best parts of this app. Bring it back!
Distance Problems... 2/5
If Bumble is going to insist on showing me people who are 90 miles away regardless of my distance settings, the least they can do is add a place in our profiles prompting people to indicate where they live. This way I can figure out if a match just happens to be traveling when I see his profile or if he was never really anywhere nearby (and isn’t likely to be anytime soon). Thanks.
Update: I got a response from the developer asking if I’m seeing matches beyond my distance settings in the green beeline, which is designed to show me some matches outside my selected range. The answer is no - the matches that I am seeing outside of my selected range are in the profile queue, where you swipe left or right. I’m not the only user pointing out that it’s hard to know who is staying in the area or just traveling through. Prompting people to indicate where they live would be a helpful fix. Thanks.
Uhhh I literally don’t know how to flirt now 2/5
Well thank you so much for getting rid of the GIF button because I’m socially awkward and have a terrible ways with words I now have no idea how to flirt with guys...
It’s a great app fonts are too small , would you make them easier to read?
Bumble BFF 5/5
I’ve downloaded a few apps trying to meet more people and they weren’t the best. No complaints about bumble tho
Bring back the GIFS!!!
Where are the gifs?!? 3/5
The most recent update got rid of the gifs!!! Why?? Bring them back
Bee #1 & Bring Giphy Back!! 3/5
By MeowoeM TM
Too all YOU reviewers beeing negative nancies:
Sadly, I loved this app way more when they had gifs BECAUSE it actually showed a sense of humor and light heartedness when words fell short with miscommunication. (Why I only gave a 3 star rating)
However, it’s challenged me to try new ways to look more appealing in text. Words are definitely powerful. Also, if you know exactly the personality type of man / woman you want, then put yourself in their shoes and think about what they want to see not what YOU want to show them. If you can figure out this you’ll have more matches than ever! I believe in keeping things simple. Paying for the package or not. There’s ways to allure that person. Just get into their mind... half of the time it’s right there in your face on their actual profile... study these things... happy swiping! And quit blaming the app for people that don’t even deserve your attention anyway.. there’s probably a good reason you don’t match and bee thankful sometime it’s just meant to bee that way. :-)
Dating selecting 4/5
My question is can choose the body type of the women I love chubby women and also can use a prepaid credit card or gift card to pay for my monthly membership
Fake profiles 1/5
**Updated for developer response below**
Full of fake profiles that initiate and auto send 1 line questions and never reply.
At first I was impressed at how many amazing people were on here then found out they’re fake.
Updated Dec: 8
It unethical to use old / outdated / unused profiles to make it appear as if there is an abundance of women when in reality it is not the case.
If you truly care in helping then I would give greater stars for the following...
3 stars if: a. You show their sign up date. b. You show up their last log in date.
4 stars if: you show how many times the profile has logged in over the past month along with above.
5 stars if: you can see their log in history since they’ve started along with above. This would make the ultimate user experience.
It’s up to you. You can do something no one else is doing. I doubt you will as then men will see that it’s not reality of what’s being presented.
Giving a 2 star because you remove the GIF button 2/5
I used to love this app, but the GIF button was removed, so now I can no longer share gifs. What is up with this crap?!
By Pierre Jordan
The boost are just way too expensive. $8.99 a week or $24.99 for one month. You don’t get boost like unless you pay $1.99 for one “coin” for a boost like. What if they are never on the app or they swiped left. At least 1 boost like daily. The boost should also increase your chances of you swiping right that they’ll see your profile first. The boost “membership” doesn’t really have much features for the price it value.
No action 2/5
Haven’t met anyone yet
What happened to the GIFs? How am I supposed to flirt with guys without my trusty “How you doin?” GIF? Joey Tribbiani‘s like my wing-man?
Need some diversity 1/5
Not a lot of non-white options, very disappointing.
Provide Place of Residence 3/5
It would be very helpful if the site offered a section for place of residence. Many folks travel for work, kiddo activities, or other events. Someone might not be in an area ideal for dating if they reside too far away.
This might sound stupid but the fact y’all removed gifs and bitmoji is ridiculous
I love to start of with a cute gif and i get positive outcomes out of it! The whole “how you doing” “hello” bull is so BASIC! The recommendations for openers are way to cheesy and not my style
Thanks bumble (not)
Matriarchal mania 1/5
Very sexist toward men. Must have been developed by some angry feminist who hates men
Where are the GIFS??? 1/5
By Ahhh!! D:
Using GIFS is a crucial way for messaging. It adds a lot more to the conversation besides the texts back and forth. Why is it gone? There’s a certain element that only GIFS could add which was a little more to the laughs and also be used as reactions. I found it easier to talk using them, and the people I’ve matched with would agree as well since a lot of them were used to make the conversation more fun.
Add the GIFS back.
I loved Bumble since the get go, much better than Tinder. Though, when I found out that I was being charged for 3 month long subscriptions at one time when I never used anything but the free app and they have charged my card twice now $67 or so and my bank couldn’t do anything about it? I hadn’t been using the bumble app for loooong before these charges. What can you guys do to make up for this??? I read others had the same issue and you reversed the charges.
Please fix it and let me use the regular app again and give you a good review again.
Just the same as any other dating app, you have to make payments just to do what you intend. It’s a waste of time!
Gifs removed 1/5
I’m disappointed the ability to send gifs was removed. This was one of the top ways to illicit a response. Hopefully this feature is brought back. Will be deleting if not.
Bring back GIFs 4/5
I really enjoy this app and how it is setup. However I’m upset you got rid of the gif feature. That was sometimes a really clever tool to use in conversation on the app.
SoFar so Good 4/5
Enjoying the quality ladies n lucky with mutual likes
BRING GIFS BACK 1/5
By Dont get!!!!!!
The new update took away gifs!? What!?
I want gif back
Still bumbling along for their size, but just okay! 3/5
By J. Maureen
I want to love Bumble, I just don’t yet.
Every time it gets close to perfection, it stumbles and you hate it all over.
Today I woke up to find my app updated again and removed the GIPHY feature.
Before that, you could block users without reporting them and now you have do give a detailed explanation and thesis paper to bumble support on why you don’t want to encounter your neighbor or ex on Bumble.
I also think Hinge has it down with the “your turn” reminder on the message. Sometimes you think you replied and did not, but not on Hinge. You see if it’s your turn or theirs.
Hinge also notices the amount of conversation and prompts you to go on a date.
It would be great to have a these options on bumble.
I wish bumble would stop posting silly conversations screenshots online and get back to what matters: how well the app is working for users, especially ones who pay for it.
Bring the gifs back! Those are the best way to start conversations!
People brains (common sense) over bots... 2/5
I had barely had the app for three days before I noticed that my pictures which were clear and centered photos of myself were being moderated. It was saying that my pics were not of my face.
When I reached out to customer service they told me this:
We want to show our users the clearest representations of each other, and so we don't accept pictures which contain text, screenshots, photos with watermarks, photos with captions, text overlaid or photo effects. Your photos have screenshot black lines at the bottoms and the sides of your pictures and therefore as per these guidelines are not permitted. These guidelines apply to all Bumble users.
This was in fact is this was not true as I had edited the photos for the removal of black lines. I then received another message saying that they did not allow screenshot photos. This may have been difficult to understand for their staff but many of us use and edit our screenshots for the purpose of removing ourselves from group photos or to simply zoom in for a clearer picture.
I took the time to verify myself as the person who was in fact centered and present in the pictures but then found my edited photos where I had simply removed blank space had been deleted.
I always understand policy but when anyone of their staff could have looked at pictures and said to themselves “oh these are very clear and centered pictures of the individual who had verified himself and is paying for the use of our app.”, it strikes me as odd for them to remove them. I would expect that it wouldn’t not be an issue but per most customer service via apps these days, the simple and common sense fix was not an option. Customer service is so dead lately it seems people would like to make mountains out of mole hills. I had mad it a point to never give money to companies that can’t resolve simple minor issues by the application of common sense. I feel as though companies no longer deal with issues anymore that cannot be fixed with automatic responses, thus a clear statement that individual needs or concerns of customers is not at all important. Shame, seemed like a cool dating app.
No difference 1/5
Just like any other dating website. Same people jumping from one site to the other.
Bring the GIFs back 😢 4/5
I love Bumble, but come oooon... GIFs were my move, bring it back!!
Whenever people swipe right on you, they will show it as a grayed out premium feature and will purposely never show you the actual person that liked you. So Bumble really is a pay to win situation because they care more about the money rather than matching individuals. They really force you to buy premium.
