Editors' Review

Bumble for Android is a female-first dating app that helps users of all genders find friends, relationships, and networking connections.

Pros

For dates, friends, or networking: On Bumble, you can easily switch between Bumble Date to find a date or relationship, BumbleBFF to find friends, and BumbleBizz to make professional connections.

Women first: So that men can't harass and harangue women, if a heterosexual match is made in Bumble (unlike Tinder or OKCupid, for example), only the woman can make the first move.

In same-sex matches, either person can make initial contact. If anyone gets out of line at any point, you can block and report them.

Robust profiles: You can add up to six photos. You can also add a short bio, your job, and education history, and even connect your Instagram or Spotify account so that other users get a better sense of you.

Safety first: Unlike some competing apps, Bumble requires at least one photo for transparency sake. To dissuade users from putting up fake photos, the app encourages account verification, where you are asked to take a selfie in a position that mimics a sample photo you are shown. That way users will know that you're who you say you are.

Quick connections: In Bumble, you'll be served a series of photos, and you'll swipe right if you're interested and left if you're not. If you match, you'll get a notification. Then you only have 24 hours to make contact or respond or the connection expires. That forces users to make bold moves that may lead to real-life matching.

Facebook-free registration: After all the recent Facebook controversy, Bumble recently introduced Facebook-free registration. Now users can register and log in with their phone numbers if they've dropped Facebook or don't want to provide Bumble access to their Facebook info. Tinder, for example, still requires a Facebook connection.

Cons

Customer service complaints: On the Consumer Affairs site, there are several complaints lodged against Bumble's customer service, describing it as hard to reach and difficult to deal with.

Bottom Line

If you're looking for a dating app where women's safety is a top priority, then make a beeline for Bumble.

Developer's Description

Over 30 million people have signed up for Bumble to start building valuable relationships, finding friends, and making empowered connections.

Creating new connections has never been easier. Bumble is working to lift the stigma of online dating by employing unprecedented standards for respectful behavior. Because of this relentless dedication, millions of people are using Bumble to build valuable relationships every single day.

DATE, MEET FRIENDS, NETWORK

Bumble is at the forefront of matchmaking technology by providing an app that allows users to foster more than just romantic connections. The industry-leading app empowers users to swipe through potential connections across three different modes:

Bumble: On Bumble, women make the first move. We've changed the archaic rules of the dating game so that you can form meaningful relationships in a respectful way.

Bumble BFF: Life is better with friends. Whether you're new to a city or looking to expand your circle, Bumble BFF is the easiest way to make new friends.

Bumble Bizz: Now we're in business. Use Bumble Bizz to network, find mentors, and create new career opportunities.

Bumble is the first app of its kind to bring dating, friend-finding, and career-building into a single social networking platform.

CHANGING THE RULES OF THE GAME

At Bumble, women make the first move. In heterosexual matches, the woman has 24 hours to make the first move and the man has 24 hours to respond. In same-sex matches, either person has 24 hours to make the first move, while the other individual has 24 hours to respond, or else, the connection expires. By prompting our users to be bold and make the first move we've seen over 3 billion messages sent to date.
