Free accs have extremely limited options 4/5
So, as a free user you can start out with 500-800 beans (currency in app), but they run out fast especially if you “like” more people. It’s harder to build up the beans and with the system of how they refresh new people everyday on the list, it’s a bummer that you might lose that chance to ever talk to these people again.
Camera privacy concern on CMB 3/5
By app review-dil
I am putting this here since your support never responded to the issue submitted on 7th Jan, 2018.
Camera / photos privacy concern!
Are you going around iOS privacy to access camera / photos stored on iPhone? if the setting is set to Never in I-Phone, why CMB app able to access the pictures. It should ask user for permissions when attempting to upload pictures instead of accessing the photos on the IPhone.
Apple App Store - is you review these feedback, please check why some apps are not honoring user setting that explicitly is set to Never. I as user would expect prompt message to enable photos access but in this case the application is able to access photos stored on IPhone when the setting in privacy is set to Never.
Very Happy! 5/5
By Vegan Climber
I am very happy with this app, as I have met a man who I am not only dating consistently, but who inspires me to grow. I want to be my best self for him, and I see a bright future for us. He is so handsome, my heart aches when I think of him. I never would have imagined myself feeling this way about another man again. It is truly amazing that this came from something on my iPhone! Technology... wow!!
Best Dating App by Far 5/5
By Starcraft 1979
The Matches are really good on this app. I tried other dating apps, but couldn’t take any of the others seriously. Only CMB and Match.com are the only ones I use now because the rest of the dating apps are pretty bad. The bachelors/bachelorettes on CMB and Match actually put serious effort into their profiles & pictures. They seem really attractive overall as well because they actually put a decent effort in posting good photographs.
I’m not sure how the messaging works. When I “like” someone I’m encouraged to send a message but I don’t even know if they’ve read it.
Tinder is better 1/5
Cost money to get actual matches and the lay out is confusing. Tinder and bumble are much better options, much easier and free.
I cant login Whats wrong with my cmb? 1/5
Plz resolve the problem
There are multiple fake people like mg for money beware. They act like they are overseas military personnel. Beware and never send money to some online you have never met!!!
Catfishing on CMB 1/5
I believe I was catfished on this sight. Cannot reach any administrator at the company to discuss.
Fix this 2/5
Keeps freezing and exiting me out the app
Very glitchy. 3/5
Every day you log in you’re supposed to receive a certain amount of beans but they don’t always add up. The app is super glitchy and based off of lots of gimmicks rather making actual matches.
Skipping the Line Advertisement a Huge Turn-off 2/5
Hey CMB I get that you’re a free app, but every time I like somebody I have to look at a popup that says “hey pay us ten bucks and they’ll get to decide if they like you immediately, otherwise you’ll have to wait ten days to show up on her app”. That would be fine if it showed up once a day, but after almost every single profile? Makes using the app way more tedious than competitors like Bumble. I guess what I’m trying to say is pay me and I’ll redesign your app, or better yet help me find a girlfriend and I’ll redesign your app for free.
Not letting be log in 1/5
It was working the first few days. One day it logged me out & wont let me log back in.
Very good 5/5
Hoping to meet my soulmate but lovely app
Wonderful app — I met my love on it 5/5
I never expected to meet someone I’d fall head over heels in love with on an app, but that’s exactly what happened thanks to Coffee Meets Bagel! My boyfriend and I have been together for over a year and I’ve never in my life been so grateful for an app (or for another person).
When I was on it, I liked that CMB was so relaxed and you could only match with 5 people each day instead of matching endlessly. The matches seemed well thought-out and I like that the profiles included people’s religious beliefs, height, interests and conversation starters. I also enjoyed the whole vibe in the app. People generally seemed pretty chill, unlike the aggressive and somewhat desperate energy on Tinder, for instance.
I ended up recommending CMB to a few of my friends and one of them met her boyfriend on there as well! I still wholeheartedly recommend this app and am so grateful to it for introducing me to the most wonderful person I’ve ever met.
CMB vs the other apps 5/5
I always tell people meeting somebody on tinder is like meeting in the club. Bumble is middle of the road...equivalent to meeting in the grocery store. CMB is equivalent to meeting someone in the library. The women are more serious and have an intellectual component. And you don’t get overwhelmed with matches.
Poor app, 1/5
By shahin 007
This app rips off customers sp men. I’m sure there are many women who work for this website. Actually, this website is a scammer.I tried to meet some girls but almost all of them needed a new cellphone as a gift. Very expensive website. Don’t get fool. Period
I don’t know if this is a pattern with this app or if other women have also had the same experience as me, which is why I’m writing this review. Five out of the six men Ive started conversations with their profiles do not match up to who they say they are at all. Now let me put this into context. Every profile has said that they live in my area but then I start talking to them and I kid you not, they all end up claiming that they are in the service either in Africa or over in the Middle East. Furthermore, when they message me the messages are in broken English. I joined this app to meet people in my town/county not to become a pen pal of someone who claims to be or is in the service far away from where I live. I just feel duped.
This app is pretty much useless. Even with a paid membership you still have to pay for beans and even getting 3000 beans would only give you 8 likes. You can’t even talk to someone if they liked you because it still costs money to “take” them, whatever that means. After refusing to pay anything to them, I’ve concluded that this app is useless. You literally can’t do anything on it as far as matching or talking to people. Hinge is so much better.
Met my now boyfriend on this app 5/5
I love this app!!! I love how you are limited to only a couple matches a day. It kept me patient and helped me to not be so overwhelmed with the many people I had to keep conversations with on other dating apps.
The main reason I love this app is because I met my current boyfriend of over a year on this app and we have been taking about getting engaged super soon. I can’t thank this app enough for bringing this amazing guy into my life and giving us the opportunity to get connected. Thank you Coffee Meets Bagel.
Not worth your time 1/5
So I'd give it 0 stars if possible but I could make a case for the 1, the app is fairly well put together and look decent. But to me the app isn't wort your download. 95% of the time my daily match(bagle) is of some kind of Asian nationality that all of a sudden doesn't live in my city once we match. I'm also getting set up with people who have no legitimate profile pics and nothing filled out about them. Finally there's the accounts where the people clearly speak very broken English because what they type makes little or no sense. Which leads me to believe it's a fake account and there's some kind of catfishing attempt going on. I won't even begin to entertain the idea of paying for whatever premium membership features they might have. Because this app isn't even worth the storage space on my phone.
Definitely Deleting 1/5
By Tensa Zangetsu Hollow
This app is garbage, don’t waste your time.
Fake/scam profiles, poor authentication checks 1/5
Profile don’t have any authentication..anyone can upload anyone’s picture with an email to create a profile.
Currently unable to see new matches after they’ve been “liked” and it says I have multiple chats open, but unable to see them
By crangers mcbasketball
The best looking women are always in the Discover section where you have to pay for “beans”. The free “Suggested” section never has anyone desirable. Maybe give at least one free daily “take” to the discover section.
This app needs to double check on who signs up on this app. I e chatted with people and they are scammers.
Further proof these apps are destroying culture 1/5
Go meet someone in person the old fashion way. These types of apps seem to be loaded with bad algorithms and probably fake profiles. Overall resulting in frustration for everyone. This only adds to dividing single men and women more with negative views.
Spend 3 weeks 0 matches, 0 conversations, I give this app 0
That was quick. 5/5
Signed up and three days later matched with an awesome guy. We got engaged a year later!
Can’t even set up an account 1/5
I cannot sign with my phone number because it claims it’s an invalid number.
Maybe better results in big metro areas 2/5
This app could be good. But if you're in more urban areas you may notice that the results you get are nothing but a bunch of gremlins. Not the apps fault. But oh well.
Features don't work 2/5
I'm not going to complain about the dating pool or my luck meeting people. I understand that's mostly to to me.
But notifications just don't work. I'm not notified when I receive a message or a match. Yes, I've checked all the settings, and they are turned on.
Also, there's supposed to be a way to extend a chat if it lasts longer than 7 days. However, the button to do so is non-existent. It's literally not there.
I'm using the latest version on an iPhone Xs. Developer needs to get their act together.
My review 5/5
I like this dating app and it’s easy to use. I met my boyfriend on this dating app. I sign up for this app about 2 years and I had no luck at first. I tried okcupid but I few people but it didn’t works I definitely recommend CMB for anyone looking for love. ❤️
Zero customer support, poor matching algorithm 1/5
Hi all, if you’re are seriously looking to take control of your dating life, you cannot depend on this app.
1. Extra ordinarily bad customer support: first and foremost you cannot “Speak” to anyone, it’s entirely over email after the ticket was created via app, which means that if you’re in a different time zone it would take >5 days to resolve a question that would otherwise over phone take 5 minutes. Moreover, even over email the customer support is so slow to respond, I have been going back and forth with them for over a month. Three open questions are still pending since a fortnight. I have not received a response without having to chase at least 2-3 times.
2. Poor matching algorithm: The blog claims that the mutual friends and friends of friends via Facebook is taken into account, however upon enquiring I was informed by customer support that in fact they are still in negotiations with Facebook regarding that and that feature has been/ will be discontinued. In short, the app gets access to way more data that it needs or uses. Also, friendship network cannot be claimed as differentiating strength of the app. Further, app seems to machines learns whoever has received more likes and tilts results accordingly, as opposed to a new neutral matching system. In addition education seems to be a bigger driver than even location. When I experimented with education it seemed to give me more relevant matches from my neighborhood or area as opposed when i tested with location. It’s important that the app has appropriate filters but shouldn’t be biased.
3. The interface is not the easiest and buttons are too close.
Amongst the plus points, photo lab is a good concept!
Good luck to the team!
Love This Dating Service 5/5
I would highly recommend CMB to everyone (in fact I have gotten a few of my single friends to join). I love that this app is on my phone, but they encourage meeting in person and starting contact outside of the app. I went on 3 dates with different guys and talked to several before. I was only on the app one week before meeting the man I hope to one day marry! He and I have been dating over a year now and I owe it all to a this dating service. Online dating isn’t as scary as you might think. Give it a try! 🙂
Not worth the money 2/5
By Mikein Round Rock
For a man, this app is not worth the money. $35 a month, and if you would like to “like “additional women it comes out to roughly 6 dollars per alike. The daily bagels that you were sent, or “matches “they say is up to 25, I typically got 6 to 8 and over the course of two weeks, most were not very good matches what so ever. The discovery section, is somewhat of a joke, no matter how many times I would change my filters on the discovery, the same 12 to 15 would come up. So it forces you to spend money to like that person. Overall, I spent over $100 in about a two week. When I could’ve spent about $20 on bumble with unlimited likes, or most of the other apps
Horrible pricey app 1/5
After 3 weeks of using this app, it has to be the most priciest of them all. Whenever I run out of matches in the suggested section I never have enough “bagels” to like at least one person on the discover section. And when I do want to like someone, IT COSTS 4.99!!!! This app is absolutely horrible and I’ve only gotten three matches out of the 3 weeks using this garbage. Pretty surprising considering I’m a good looking individual follow me at ig: marloon_7 🤪💯🤟🏽
I like the service, app freezes 2/5
I really do like the premise of this app. It provides a fresh take on dating services that most don’t have. But the app will constantly freeze when I’m using it. It becomes unresponsive for over a minute and I have to force close. Even when relaunching it takes 20-40 seconds to reset and become useable again. I’ve tried on my WiFi and on Data services with stable connections to both, doesn’t seem to change.
Inconsistent app 2/5
Inconsistent and doesn’t make much sense. I tried to give it a chance but after a year of use I finally closed it. Why? I don’t think the matching system is completely reliable. For example, let’s say I liked a guy on CMB and I don’t get a match. But I see the same guy on Tinder or Bumble but we’d match! I asked the guys if they saw me on CMB and they say No. Either they have a bad memory or the app is flawed. This happened to me many times so I think the app is flawed. Also, in the beginning they give you good matches (ppl within your preferences) but after two weeks, you get people WAY outside of your preferences. If I want an Asian guy why are you giving me other races that clearly state that they are not Asian? And to wait until noon to find out your matches? That’s stupid. The whole system is confusing. Even Shark Tank couldn’t get on board. It is getting better though, slowly, but you need to do away with showing matches at noon and work on your algorithm.
Worst site to date 1/5
By Cookng with Apps
Have been on here for three months. Much higher proportion of scammers on this site than any other. Definitely a waste of money. At least they are good about policing members and suspending those they have red flags.
I don’t want to date 40-year-old men, dammit 1/5
I’m 23, and I specified in my account preferences that I want to date men between the ages of 22 to 30... so why does CMB only show me 38-year-olds? No other dating app does this; in fact, they follow my age preferences to a tee, eliminating the creepy old guys who try to match with me. CMB, this is ridiculous. I am deleting you.
Does this works? 2/5
I am not sure how this works. Price is a bit more. I didn’t see any progress being here. App is designed very well.
Great app 5/5
Makes it very easy for busy people
A lot of Catfish 2/5
There are a lot of catfish on this app! It’s so annoying and the developer needs to do better at screening these as well. In addition, a lot of the simple minded men on this app are treating it like Tinder I’m almost loosing hope these apps are horrid!
I enjoyed this app met a few potential matches
Completely innefective and fradulent 1/5
If you enjoy sending hundreds of messages to fake matches who never respond, you will LOVE this app! However, if your goal is to be matched with real, breathing singles, stay away from Coffee Meets Bagel. I spent $75 on the in-app purchases called "Beans". These were advertised as helping me "unlock" other profiles. None of it worked. Its all B.S. I sent scores of messages without ever receiving any from other members. I suspect there are quite a few inactive and fake profiles. You basically spend all of your time chasing ghosts. AWFUL!!!
Super buggy 1/5
The app locks up constantly, my profile never got approved because of one of my photos? I never was told which photo, and after getting an email telling me my profile was approved, it STILL wasn't approved! I have no idea what's going on with that still. I tried messaging support within the app with no real progress, plus it's an uphill battle as, again, the app locks up constantly; sometimes I can't edit text, sometimes I can't click around the app at all, and closing and reopening the app is the only thing that fixes it. Most annoying is how this happens CONSTANTLY! Like right after I open the app again after closing it, it will lock up again. Can't go on dates if nothing works!
Don’t bother 1/5
I have been on and off here a number of times never actually matched with many people the people I did match with scammers from overseas. I even paid to get more beans to talk to the people I wanted to talk to you but never heard back from anybody and I’m not an ugly unsuccessful guy. If you want to waste your money I can give you my Venmo or PayPal you have just as much luck
Be careful their are many scammers 1/5
For everyone one decent guy on this app you will run into 5 scammers who claim to be on an oil rig,
They will try and put on a good act but ladies follow your gut don’t give these losers money
