Not worth premiumPaying for premium allows you to see 50max who have swiped on you. Beyond that is something bumble can’t handle. Pretty much useless when there’s no one who catches your attention or you have an app flooded with girls who want validation yet aren’t interested in interacting.Version: 5.217.0

Fun but unstable and non specificThe app is good but highly unstable and lacks consistent performance. It crashes regularly when chatting and fails to display pictures completely; it starts to load a pic then stops leaving the user w a blurry image. Skipping this match doesn’t ensure the next one is working correctly. The profile section doesn’t require much content to begin posting so there’s some very thin profiles, time wasters. The lack of specific geographical locations in a big metropolis is a negative, I’m not keen on long distance. Matches only with a narrow age band are limiting as well. The fact that woman have to accept your interest is unique and should ensure only interested matches are contacting me (a male), a bit like fishing and hoping they take the bait. Not sure about that, can’t write to share my thoughts until they accept..Version: 5.132.0

Login problemsTried to login with my phone number but not receiving a text. The tried to go for the call option and didn’t receive the call either. Then when I restarted the app, it asks me to check my number. Very frustrating when I’ve been trying to login for a few days..Version: 5.202.0

Poor appApp doesn’t seem to work even after contacting staff I haven’t had a reply . I’ve contacted but I don’t think it went through I didn’t get a message saying my message had been received I’ve also tried Twitter and my messages weren’t replied to there ..Version: 5.221.1

Paid account doesn’t workPaid for bumble and it doesn’t link with the paid account and keeps saying to pay to sign up for the features I have paid for. I requested support help six days ago and no response. :(.Version: 5.218.0

New Match Queue FeatureI guess they added a feature for the Bumble Boost Match Queue, that keeps people in the queue that swiped on you and then left town, or keeps people in your queue who swiped on you when you were out of town. Since they rolled out this new feature, over half of the guys in my match queue are super far away from me. I have my search radius set to 50 miles away. I’m getting guys in my queue who are 100+ miles away. I live in Oklahoma and I have guys still in my queue from FLORIDA that I assume are there from my vacation back in JUNE. I also have guys from Missouri, Arkansas, Kansas, and have gotten several from Texas and Colorado. This feature is AWFUL. If other people want to set their search radius for super far away, fine. But if mine is set to 50 miles, I don’t want to see ANYONE outside that radius! Even if I was in the same town as they were for a short period of time, and even if they swiped on me. If I had wanted to see who was available while I was in Florida, I would have opened the app to look. But I wasn’t interested in guys halfway across the country then, and I’m not interested in them now. It’s been an absolute chore to try and weed through them, but it never seems to end and honestly, I’m exhausted! I hope they fine tune this feature or give us an option to turn it off..Version: 2.35.0

The worst dating app I’ve ever used.I find it very odd that every guy I’ve matched has either never talked or we start talking and I suddenly never hear back from them again. I’ve only exchanged numbers with two guys on this app and one suddenly disappears after we talked all night and he agreed to take me surfing and the other guy stops talking. All the guys I’ve matched with stop talking mid conversation this has happened 100 percent of the time. I’ve had at least 12+ matches and have been using this app for about a week, I’d say I’m a very attractive woman and have never had problems getting a date so I find it odd that this has happened every single time. The Bumble Bff does this as well but not as badly so I’ve stopped using the dating side of Bumble as it’s super suspect and I haven’t had any success with any of the guys I’ve matched with. I also think their are quite a few fake profiles as well but seeing all the bad reviews I’m starting to believe this app is just trying to get you to spend money as it takes so many swipes just to see whose liked you. Mine said I had 50+ likes and it stayed that way because Bumble won’t reveal even one of them for a very long time unless you pay for an upgrade. I find it odd that I can’t match with any rally handsome guys on the app but when I go out I attract good looking guys all the time. Anyways I just wanted everyone to know my experience. It’s not you, it’s this app..Version: 3.8.0

No better than tinder just more hard workHave been using on and off for 10 months. Quite liked the concept to start with but now the 24 hour timescales are irritating. Sometimes people are busy and have other things going on that means your not focused on dating for a few days. Approx 80% men don’t bother to reply to messages so left feeling like there is no point messaging in the first place. Keep being shown the same people. I think I have swiped left on 1 guy about 30 times so either he has multiple profiles of bumble is not getting it. Rarely match these days after lots of matches in the beginning so I suspect that unless I pay for spotlight then my profile isn’t being shown anymore 🤷🏻‍♀️ It doesn’t feel empowering sending the first message at all. Prefer the hinge app.Version: 5.168.0

What’s with the time restrictions??Been paying for premium and the only real difference is that I can see who’s swiped right on me first. You can extend the amount of time you have (as a female) to talk to someone you’ve matched with, but you’re still left waiting for a guy to respond within 24hrs. Bit of a laugh really, don’t see the point in the time restrictions at all. Stick with the free version, “additional features” not worth paying for. Pros: FAR less buggy than Tinder.Version: 3.21.0

Girls clearly miss the point of this appNot trying to sound like a mad man or anything like that but, ladies... y’all know the point of Bumble is that YOU make the first move? Why am I still seeing bios that have “msg me first cuz I’m ‘too shy’”? If you’re “too shy” to message first, why are you still using an app that clearly states at the beginning of your account creation and upon matching that you, the girl, have to make the first move? Deactivate your account and download Tinder, Hinge or something that doesn’t require the girls to make the first move 😂 also, this is specifically for the Bumble devs, quit sending me notifications talkin bout “In the matter of seconds...” blah blah “someone likes you, open the app to see who” or whatever and when I open the app, there’s literally nothing in the Beeline 😐 don’t give us that false info/hope. Don’t lie in your push notifications. Lastly, y’all shoulda kept the rollbacks free of charge. Not to mention the amount of money you have set for your subscriptions are outrageous. 20 dollars for a week?? Almost 40 dollars for ONE month? Seriously!? Take a page out of Tinder’s book and make one month worth 20 dollars or something 💀 You can do better than this, Bumble. You should also consider allowing men to have some free chats to upon matching to relieve these “shy” girls from having to message first..Version: 5.196.0

Unreasonable and unhelpfulI quite enjoyed this app and met many people until I was suddenly blocked as a result of “anonymous” complaints of policy violations that they continuously refuse to explain to me. When trying to find someone to speak to, I had to reach out on several social media platforms in order to get a response. And when I did, I was told they reviewed my account but couldn’t tell me exactly what rule I had broken for protection purposes. I really don’t understand who exactly is being protected because it certainly wasn’t me. I’m a person with more strict moral standards than most, so there hasn’t been anything inappropriate in my profile nor my messages to anyone. I can’t begin to imagine what they think I did wrong, but they won’t explain or give me any evidence of my wrong doing. I work in a very legal influenced profession, and even when a crime is committed, the accused has a right to be told what their violations are and given an opportunity to respond. I find Bumble’s practice of vague, canned responses unreasonable, unhelpful and unprofessional. Not asking for anybody’s complaints to be shared, but a screenshot of whatever the violations were would certainly have been reasonable before banning someone altogether who has been using this app responsibly for years..Version: 5.205.0

Updates deletes all matchesTwice I have been prompted to update the app and after doing so all matches and conversations were gone. They have the worst customer service team who do not read your emails properly and refuse to acknowledge there’s a glitch. They just keep sending the same standardised, patronising reply, saying ‘unfortunately you were unmatched. Don’t worry, there’s plenty more out there. Happy bumbling’. When you’re on the app in the middle of the night and see 9 matches, do a quick update and go straight back in and all 9 have disappeared..I highly doubt they were all awake at this time and unmatched me at the exact same second in time!! I was just in the middle of arranging a date and now the app is forcing another update...Version: 3.32.0

SCAMMERS!I am absolutely fuming!! I have just been notified that I have been charged $73 for a subscription I never signed up for! When i messaged to confront them about it so the issue could be resolved it kept saying there was an error so I couldn’t message them. This is disgusting as people work hard for their money and that was all I had and they took it without my permission for something I never signed up to!!!.Version: 5.152.0

Waste of timeDoes this app work for ethnic guys cause holy I’ve been on this app for 3 weeks selectively swiping with pictures picked out by others and nothing, no matches at all. Very disappointing and shows the racial bias that exists on dating apps especially this..Version: 5.171.0

ReviewI signed up and got about 15 people and then it said that's it !!!! So 3 days later I paid to get more and see who liked me and once paid there was no one or even more pictures -maybe an age thing may be more for the younger ones -but real waste of money -I have my settings set at 180 km.Version: 3.9.0

AccusedI downloaded the app and used it for several months only received one match (which is fine) and I only went on maybe once a week or so. Dated that match for a few months, so that was good, but about 5 months later I get a message that my profile is being moderated (under review because someone reported it). I messaged bumble and asked why and they said they couldn’t tell me and that decisions were final, I then asked for an apology for their allegations, I was told I wouldn’t recieve any. Here I am to tell my story in their review so future users can be aware of this nonsense..Version: 5.136.0

Bad Customer ServiceI was swiping on Bumble when a notification to be in the spotlight popped up on my phone. Not realizing it, I accidentally clicked on the package and tried to exit out. It was then that the payment screen came up and when I was trying to click the button to exit, it quickly accepted my fingerprint for payment. I quickly notified Bumble and got a generic response from “Mike” from the “Bumble Feedback Team” saying sorry it’s in the terms that we can’t refund your purchase. I emailed him back that I’m trying to pay for school and was recently laid off and I could really use the money. He quickly got back to me with the SAME EXACT generic email saying sorry it’s in the terms. It’s obvious that he doesn’t care and so I emailed him. I understand, but accidents happen. Please make the exception. He hasn’t emailed me back. Bumble is this how you train your employees? You pay them to send generic, careless emails to your users? You write in your email to please provide us with feedback as we’re always looking to improve. How about you go the extra mile with your customer service and show that you actually care about the service you are providing to the users and not just money grabbing. Keep employees like “Mike” from the “Bumble Feedback Team”! It’s clear he doesn’t have pride in the company he works for and the job that he does for you. Judging by the way you handle your customers, I can understand why..Version: 5.175.1

Average.It seems like it’s a user-friendly and well presented app. Though, as soon as I signed up for the boost free-trial, it appears that nothing changed in what I was able to access. There was no ability to see who had swiped right in a section that seemed like it wasn’t even there, even after reading the FAQ section, it was describing something that isn’t in the app that I could find. You can also tell that the app withholds matches so you can’t access them all at the one time... making you come back the next day. This isn’t exactly trying to find you a match, just making you stick around and hoping you’ll open your wallets for extra features. I kinda figured online dating wasn’t going to be for me. Best of luck to the rest of you. 💕.Version: 5.176.0

Too sensitiveThe swipe left or right is far too sensitive bumble has swiped no on many people when I’m just trying to scroll to get to know them more 😓.Version: 5.219.0

Technical issues - turns on you 😡Not happy with this app at all - I love the concept and it is quite easy to find people to talk to but from a technical perspective after a day or two from downloading the app it was really slow and didn’t let me see messages that were sent to me and then also a few days later it wouldn’t even let me open the app. I had to delete the app and re download it and when I finally got it to open again - I had three friend matches who were interested but the time had expired so I can’t even message them! Now it keeps asking me if I want to pay to upgrade so I can message those people who swiped right on me but I don’t want to pay for it this is just so frustrating coz now I can’t even get those people back but sorry for ranting it really is an okay app for finding friends just be careful not to let a technical difficult go on for too long or else you may miss out on people!.Version: 2.32.0

It’s good though maybe add ice breaker convo optionI like the fact that it creates a safe environment for women allowing them the choice to choose who they talk to though I feel that maybe with the whole 24hrs for them to reply maybe allow pre written conversation starters for guys to use to help try to start up the convo some women can find having to make the first convo very stressful so maybe add ice breaker convos to start up a convo rather then 24 hrs and bang some female friends I know have kicked themselves simply because they got anxious or nervous about what to say so it might help in some circumstances.Version: 5.184.0

"Contact us" more like get an automated responseIf you want to use an app where if you have an issue there's no way to get a human being to listen to what your problem is, go ahead and download this one. Filling the "contact us" form on the app for an issue I had with a photo being wrongly flagged as in appropriate (a very normal photo of me) led to an automated response email repeating the rules that uploaded pictures should follow. The email finished by saying this was (obviously) an automated response and if your issue hadn't been resolved yet you could reply to that email. Guess what, I did reply to that email mentioning how I knew the rules and I knew my picture didn't break any - only to receive an instant automated response saying that email address is only automated and wouldn't give me a reply. Suggesting me to fill the Contact Us form to speak with someone. Essentially there's no human being to address any queries ever, just dealing with dumb automated responses is what you'll get. Definitely not the best customer care I've ever seen..Version: 5.223.0

Best dating app out right now but...Bumble has really made a name for its self. Giving women control over the conversation is a game changer and the pre made conversation starters are to die for and I love how you can set height preferences and get two free filters, but the cons are pretty hefty for me. One major update they need is gender identity. To be the best app and stay up there it would be great if people knew you are open to everyone. Having a gender identity option would be great for existing users so there is no more confusion. Also a lot of people complain about not getting notifications from the app and I can agree to that. Unless I see a badge icon or check the app I will not know if a guy messaged me and that takes away from the 24 hr window making a lot of us miss out on opportunities because no notification for messages come in but matches do. Some refining on the “looking for “ option would be great. It’s very difficult talking to someone when you want a relationship and they just want a hookup because the profiles don’t give that good of clarification. All in all bumble is a good app with amazing features and a growing community but within that community does come transgender people, non binary ppl, etc. There should be an option for them..Version: 3.29.0

Re the app my rantSo much texting .. gruelling vetting process. i understand it’s important for a woman to know as much as pos’ about someone before meeting for a coffee or even talking on the phone but, text really is so impersonal and rather clunky .. and i’m kinda witty, reasonably sharp... i think i engage, honest and keep it light, ask a lot of good questions.. i don’t know, think ill stick to old fashioned face to face .. seems to be a lot of middle aged women that just want a bit of a chat .. fair enough i guess ? anywho, i ain’t texting back and forth for an hour anymore .. rather go for a run .. I’m really fit, a professional, mid 50’s kids out on their own.. i’d like to actually meet some one .. in person and have an actual conversation .. i think i’ve missed something ? bye.Version: 2.31.0

They took your moneyThey took your money it’s the only thing they are doing!!! I closed my account and they still take my money every weeks!!!! I send us Three messages!!!! YES THREE MESSAGES!!!!! to asked them to stop this payment!!! They never answer me!!!! Bad bad bad customer service!!!!.Version: 5.208.0

Idea great but constant technical issuesLove the idea and dating behind the the app, but I’m having constant issues when logging on. When I first joined I would have to delete the app of my phone and re download it. Now I just can’t log in at all. Very frustrating. I’m glad I cancelled my premium membership..Version: 5.187.0

Removed backtracksWas once the best but no longer. They removed the three backtracks which was the best feature. No better than tinder now. And the quality of profile has also gone down. Perhaps everyone moved to hinge. 🤷‍♂️ Developers response is to say it’s in boost. It always was possible to pay for more. Your customers are annoyed you removed the three free ones. You removed a feature everyone loved that was balanced well, without any communication. Pages and pages of one star reviews. Time to backtrack on the roadmap.....Version: 5.163.0

Getting Worse With Every UpdateStarted as an ok app! But each update just seems to make the system run slower and more clunky. Constantly getting the same people popping up which is annoying, once you say no once they should disappear for at least a little while. Also getting a tonne of notifications but when I open the app, nothing loads and every page is blank. (I’m using 4G and have no internet connections with any other app). And now they’ve started emailing me like every half an hour to say I’m “generating a buzz” or something but there’s no opt out of emails option! If I’m really doing that well for business then contact me directly and we can work out a deal lol..Version: 3.2.0

New update of layout not user friendlyGreat app! But the latest update takes longer and is not user friendly with having to take longer to look through a profile. The previous version was great and you can just scroll to the bottom to see the full profile. The current one is off-putting and it’s sad coz I loved using bumble before this current version. Please dismiss this update if possible..Version: 5.182.0

BEWARE - CHEATS you out of your moneyAbsolutely livid. Downloaded because compared to tinder it seemed like apparently people were more genuine on this app. Honestly it was just the same crowd, in fact people are less likely to respond on here which is annoying because it wasted my time completely. Also, I was tricked into a subscription I never wanted by them asking me if I wanted a free month of premium - I thought why not if it’s free & the pop-up promised it was easy to cancel at the end of the trial period. DON’T BELIEVE THE LIES people I stg this app straight up stole my money & there’s nowhere I can complain. I was charged £42 for 3 MONTHS when I never signed up for that - maybe the next month I could accept as i should have kept an eye on it but NOT 3!! Absolutely outrageous. NOWHERE ON THE APP is there an option to cancel, I had to literally sift through my phone settings to find it but by then it was too late & I had already been charged. Ridiculous and utterly useless app. Don’t bother.Version: 3.12.0

A thoroughly miserable, exploitative experience for menI'd say half the profiles are zombie accoumts of women who have zero intention of dating you and just want to add followers to their Instagram accounts or promote their businesses. I know this because I came across three profiles of friends who I know for a fact are not available. And how do you know your profile is being shown to people? You have no way of knowing. There is zero transparency. So there you are, right-swiping hundreds of lovelies with hopes high and fingers crossed, and you'll never know if tney even saw you. What the app is exceptionally good at is extracting money from you in a series of scammy, unverifiable gimmicks that prey on your vulnerabilities. "Boost" your profile for $2-4 to be seen by more people for 30 whole minutes! What, are you saying you weren't showing my profile before?! "Super-swipe" at $1-3 a pop so she may or may not take notice of you! Their exploitation of human weaknesses at our moments of greatest vulnerability - e.g loneliness and rejection - is masterful and deeply sinister. Finally, gentlemen (and ladies), remember that all these dating apps only make money while you're still on them. So their incentive to make more money is fundamentally misaligned with yours, which is to find a decent match so you can leave the app. Go meet real people through real friends, and save yourself a crapton of money, headache and heartache. Bumble is not your friend..Version: 5.168.0

Only Allowed to Make Friends w/same GenderI used to have this app to try and look for a date, but after getting a boyfriend (not through Bumble) I decided to look for friends to match with instead. To my disappointment, you can apparently only match with friends of the same gender. I am male, but I identify as agender (meaning I just don’t really feel a connection to the concept of gender). This meant that it just kept suggesting me regular men who were typically straight. Now I don’t hate straight men, but I have so much more in common with women, trans people, and non-binary folks, not to mention men are statistically significantly more violent towards people like me, especially in a conservative state like mine. I have emailed Bumble about it because I was confused as to why no women were showing up, and they basically said they had no intention of changing it. Assuming that males can only be friends with other males and females can only be friends with other females is incredible heteronormative and sexist. I liked everything else about the app, but couldn’t even use it because I had no friends to match with. It would really be as simple as just adding the option to choose which genders show up in the friends part. I mean, you can match with both men and women when looking for relationships, but not friends? That hardly makes sense..Version: 3.15.0

Good concept but failsWe all loved it when it came out, but over time the guys on there seem to treat it as an ego boost to get messages and only reply to 10% of them. Lots of matches though, but a bit pointless as communication rarely ensues. Each party should be able to engage in conversation first. Once matched it’s clear both are keen to chat. There should at least be an option to invite them to start the chat. Every single female friend I have has stopped using Bumble because of the wasted energy in having to write the first msg EVERY time and it rarely being answered, not a fun experience. Shame as there’s a decent crowd on there and the interface is great..Version: 5.167.1

Offers a 14 free trial, charges immediatelyOffers a 14 free trial, charges immediately . I have a copy of the terms on your trial offer stating no charges would be made until 9 feb 2019 and I could cancel any time until then with no charge. You then charge me immediately, violating your own terms and my consumer rights. resolve this immediately, just like you charged my account or you’ll have some problems. Stop lying to the people you want to continue using your app. You’ve been reported to Apple also and I look forward to receiving my refund and cancelling this fake trial with absolutely no charge to me..Version: 3.19.0

Cheeky payment methodI tried it out of curiosity because I never tried meeting people online . The app itself is ok , if you have patience and you are not afraid of being rebuffed once or twice you can probably find what you are looking for ( partner, mate, friend whatever....) What I really dislike is the method of payment : it s am automatic renewal, but it s very hard to find where in the app you can stop your subscription... ; I never found it .....even after deleting your profile the automatic payment is still effective..... which doesn’t really make sense because why would you pay if you don’t even have a profile to use the app.???? I think that s not really honest because by the time I realised it I already paid an other week for nothing at all . And thanks god i checked because I would have been keeping on paying a service I wasn’t using anymore .!!!.Version: 3.0.0

Wont recommend for womenTLDR at the end. It is well know that guys swipe right on everyone and they only check the girl out when they get a match. Not only that, but you have to text them first and in a 24h window. I can imagine that half of the guys that matched me only did because they used the method of swiping right on everyone, and having to text every guy because if not the match will expire is definitely a real waste of time. My other guess is that because a girl has to text first guys suddenly feel too good and think they can do better ? Really don't know. I don't want to sound like I expect everyone to like me, not at all. I am just not sure why guys stop texting you after like 2 days of having a match. I also don't have any problems by texting someone first, but in other apps I give it a couple of days (because if we only matched because he swipes right on everyone he would have unmatched me already) and then say hi. I have used other dating apps and have had way better experience than on bumble. Even on tinder, where 90% of guys are just there for hookups, I had better results meeting really nice guys who can keep a conversation going for days and are actually really excited to grab a coffee with you. I also was curious to know if anyone had a similar experience on bumble like me, and found an interesting reddit post in which a lot of people had the exact same issues that I did. I guess the idea of the girl texting first and only having 24h to reply only works if you can make sure that the people who matched you are actually interested in you. Something that is really difficult to accomplish. I rather match people and text them when I am ready, and give time too see if they are going to un match me for any reason. Pros: - you can filter guys who actually want something serious Cons: - guys do not make an effort to keep the conversation -the 24h window to reply to someone is a lot of pressure and a waste of time, keeping in mind guys swipe right on everyone TLDR: I used this app for around 4 months and nothing came out of it. I downloaded tinder a month ago and have had way better results. Even keeping in mind that 90% of guys are there clearly for hookups. At the end of the day I guess tinder is still the most used dating app and you can definitely find people who are interested in something serious..Version: 5.135.0

Good ... but 24 hr expiring matches?!This was the first dating app I tried, as I liked the idea of a woman messaging first. I’m quite happy starting a convo, but I felt this might be a good platform to find the kind of confident, smart woman I am attracted to. After a year, I’m not certain that this holds up: most of the women using Bumble seem to have a profile on one of the other platforms anyway and I have had fewer matches turning into a conversation (let alone a date!) via Bumble compared with other apps. Generally, Bumble is easy to use and it works extremely smoothly (more so than rivals) and this would be a four-star review, but the 24 hr limit for each new match before someone speaks is really silly. Surely we’re all grown up enough to send a polite decline message (or at worst just delete manually) and don’t need Bumble to do it for us? If anything, I think this feature encourages people to treat others as disposable, more so than Tinder et al, just because you don’t have to go to the trouble of deleting an ill-considered match yourself and feeling bad for doing it ... just wait out the clock and the app does the dirty work. Also, I’ve been on lovely dates with women who didn’t get round to messaging me on Tinder or Hinge within 24 hours. Please ditch this feature, Bumble..Version: 5.182.0

Went from 5 stars to 2 quickApp use to be great, new update that limits swipes is stupid, use the app swipe a bunch, close it, reopen it 12 hours later to use it again just to get one swipe before you have to wait all day. Yikes.Version: 5.164.0

Hate the new updatePretty good app, I love how I can set religious preference for the people I see. But I hate the new format update, clicking through the parts of the profile instead of clicking the name and then scrolling through is so frustrating and looks clunky and old fashioned. They should stop trying to be tinder and embrace the different viewing format. I’ll probably be using this app less now just because I hate how it feels to browse..Version: 5.174.0

Fakes + Useless CS = Not Worth ItPrevious review seems to have gone … disappointing when you only get to read one side of the story. Bumble presents it’s fair share of fake profiles to the (male) user. Bg this I mean large numbers of Chinese girls that are ‘within 10k’ … they’re not. Plus people seeking insta likes and then direction to a card scam. Disappointing. Especially when reporting them leads to nothing. Bug I can of course ignore these things if I’m wise to them. What was most annoying was being locked out and trying to get back in over the following week … to no avail. Turns out id been blocked … no communication to this effect, found out by starting to register on a different phone. But in the week I’d contacted bumble on Twitter, Facebook and by email. None of which received a response. Bumble replied to the previous (missing) review asking me to contact customer services - all sounding apologetic, nice, helpful. Well I did this and not a word of response at all. My crime? I posted a pic of me clay shooting. Could have been football or fishing or dog walking … but in the absence of any abuse or anything dodgy … that’s all it was. No communication to say ‘we’ve done this…’ So no bumble, you’re not helpful or great … read recent reviews! *Edit* As requested by developer response - contacted on Twitter, Facebook and email. I’ve also requested my data. No response. Same as the past attempts! Fake users and fake customer service promises. Scam.Version: 5.228.0

Location settings issue & becoming a hookup appI like the filters and the basic information on each profile. However, when traveling, I have access to a new pool of Bumble users I don’t want. I’m currently out of state for a few months so I only have access to people here. Any potential matches with people from my home city are lost bc they may not have their radius set to where I am now. I wish I could turn it off but still use the swipe feature here like Hinge has. Also, even though you have the “what you’re looking for” feature, the majority of men on here (maybe women too, idk) don’t actually want a relationship. Most of them reply once or not at all, or they get sexual right away despite putting that they want a relationship. Is there any way to filter out the people wasting everyone’s time? Honestly, the relationship/marriage feature should only be available for a select few. Maybe monitor their activity or require a more detailed profile. If not, Bumble is heading towards more of a hookup app. I think a lot of Tinder users have migrated here because the women seem more responsive. I really don’t want Bumble’s credibility to drop because it’s not taking more steps to make the serous dating option more exclusive..Version: 5.158.0

Updating changed my profileYou’ve created new prompts - awesome. And now the old prompts are not available, so my profile has changed - not awesome. I’ve been on this platform a month, and having to put energy into re-making it at this stage isn’t great. You’ve also removed several photos because they don’t meet requirements - me on the beach with my pup? I want to be investing effort into meeting people not constantly managing the re-creation of my profile to meet people..Version: 5.183.0

Great if you want stalkers??I would have rated this app more highly if it wasn’t for one HUGE flaw, the location, why on earth does your profile need to show your exact location at all times? What purpose does this serve apart from making stalking much easier?! I live in a tiny village and it actually says my current location is in this village, that really freaked me out so I changed where I live to a nearby town and then realised it made no difference because it still public ally tells people my current location is in this tiny village, won’t take people long to twig this is where I’m living or staying which is a big safety concern in my opinion, I drove to a nearby town and turned off my location for the app which changed my ‘current location’ to that town however when I got home I realised you won’t allow people to use the app unless location is switched on, again I do not understand what purpose this serves other than allowing men to stalk you, for an app made predominantly for females it’s quite shocking?!? - Bumble, will you remove this unnecessary feature? Otherwise I will be deleting this app as it’s too unnerving..Version: 5.167.1

Good and the bad!!Good dating app been using it for years, till I couldn’t log in when says continue with Facebook. I have messaged them on the support site that they said to message too which is like Facebook and even on there page as well but still haven’t had anyone get back to me which is annoying, frustrating and just poorly how they can’t get back to me at all this is way I’m putting a 1 star rating now for this!! all I wanna know is why I can’t log back into it?? This is what I said: Hi there, I can’t login in on your app when it says continue with Facebook when I do that it goes in to the page log in with Facebook then I go continue then it loads then goes back to the start again I have try this about 3 times now I even deleted the app and downloading it again still having the same problem. That’s what my do then goes back to the start again when I’m trying to log in with my Facebook!!.Version: 5.185.0

Hate this appDeceiving in their pricing. I initially signed up for what I thought was a week trial of $9.99 for the week. Turned out it was actually a 6 month subscription for $80 that was automatically paid through my ITunes. When I saw the charge in my checking account I was shocked & tried to cancel but was told it wasn’t possible because of the way I paid. I don’t recall having the option to choose the way I paid, it was like it just automatically pulled from there because that’s what was set up on my phone. I immediately went in to cancel the membership from my phone so it wouldn’t renew in 6 months. I guess it needs to be cancelled while signed into my account from a computer because it ended up automatically renewing at another $80 for 6 months. If I was getting decent matches, it would be ok, but seems like this app isn’t used much by a lot of decent men in my area. When I travel, I get swarmed by hits, but long distance relationships don’t work for me. I also don’t like that they only have 24 hours to respond. So unless you are married to your phone & have nothing else better to do than check this app constantly, those likes are gone to never being even again. Life gets busy & sometimes you just don’t have time or cell/wi-fi coverage to constantly see who wants to connect. I would give this app zero stars, but that wasn’t an option..Version: 5.154.0

This app does way too muchUnlike tinder and other apps i use bumble goes out of its way to not only constantly notify me everyday but also send the same notifications to my email. And when I finally open the app to see what all the commotion is about theres nothing. Relax on the notifications!.Version: 5.203.0

Archive the conversation?This whole “archive or continue the conversation” thing is really dumb. What does it matter to you if we stopped talking for a few days?! Mind your own business and leave my conversations alone!.Version: 5.142.0

DisappointedI was very impressed with this app at first instance however,, I have been left disappointed because now suddenly when swiping, I can no longer make matches because it says “You’ve hit the end of the line- today”. Literally only after 3 swipes?!! And I can only swipe to see more people if I upgrade to boost or premium how unfair..and also to make matters more confusing, whenever I make matches it seems none of the people I message are responding back or the time runs out sometimes without me ever knowing I matched with them in the first place. I am now starting to think and feel my account may be getting hidden and the reason of it all is unless I pay which is very messed up. Bumble please fix this? Especially if you want successful stories to come out of people meeting which is the whole purpose of this app.Version: 5.210.0

Not practicalDo you know how many “Hi’s or Hey” girls get messaged from guys using dating apps ? The amount would be ridiculous , not only that but girls would only respond to like 5% of it because it’s a generic message . The point is that when I get messaged “hi” (if your lucky enough to be messaged),in order to talk to any females it still feels like I have to do the work. And you want me to add credit card information to upgrade for what? Let me tell you something, straight out , if I was going to have a monthly subscription to any app where there is females pretending to value me or my physical appearance it’s going to be a live cam app ,at least I’d feel like my money was well spent!.Version: 3.9.0

Beware the sting of the bumble and scam offersI would prefer to give this no stars even -2 because I have been ripped off by this exorbitant app and then heard absolutely nothing in response to my numerous attempts to make contact with its people...essentially I was offered a “free two week subscription trial” only to discover that bumble had gone right ahead and billed me close to $70 for a 3 month sign up.. emailed, hit the support option and I only hope that apple will see fit to refund me.. Bottom line: swipe left and go back to tinder folks !!! Update: six months later I’m told that it’s because I’ve already used the trial up... oh my god why even bother insulting me with that?!? It was the first and only tome I ever accepted an offer bumble has made.. I’m on it less and less and this development team need a training bra....Version: 5.130.1

The jumble of bumbleBumble you’ve taken away the ability to backtrack, filter, and the nationwide distance only seems to go several states out. Not nationwide. Perhaps mine is defective. It would be great to have the ability to match with someone in California if I’m in Ohio because some people are open to long distance. As far as the “free” features taken away, it doesn’t leave a lot of appeal to this site anymore. As a female it’s very hard to gauge what a man is looking for when profile narratives are becoming less and less of a thing. It’s difficult having to chat with someone just to find out they are not looking for the same things. Also the people who won’t write back, ghost, or can’t keep a convo flowing because they feel like your always there. Coffee meets bagel helped to solve this by making convos disappear after a time. This forced people to make a move or not. The amount of matching and ghosting or never answering on Bumble is terrible. This feature needs to take place. Also maybe only let so many matches happen a day. This prevents mindless swiping from people to people they never have any intention of contacting or carrying on a conversation with. Let’s face it- people will swipe right all day. It’s like shooting fish in a barrel..Version: 5.167.1

Transgender women were bannedRidiculous app. Homophobic to transgender people. Respect LGBT community and we must have the same rights with all other straight people. Worst app ever. When i entered my phone it says please check the number again and when use a different number then it allows me to create an account. In less than 24 hours it logs me out and says please check your number eventhough there is no message saying “account was banned”. This is ridiculous. We are sending people complaints to tribunal to help us banned this app for discriminating transgender. Hope you will settle this conflict and a serious matter. Bye.Version: 5.121.0

Not impressedFirstly, this is quite a good app and had been using it for a while however, not long after I’d stumped up the money for bumble boost I had some issues logging in. (Customer service is non existent). When I finally got a reply from their feedback email I was told that my account had been blocked and I could no longer log in. This email was quite obviously a templates reply, considering how long it took is quite a surprise. The reason for my blocking was because ‘after an investigation and much consideration’ they had found I had broken the guidelines. Having popped back to have a look at these guidelines which are rather vague I was still none the wiser. At this point I might add that I am always 100% respectful in the chats with whomever I match with. So this is not their reason why. The customer service email ended with ‘our decision about your profile cannot be changed and no exceptions will be made’. To top it off I can start another profile and drop another £80 on it if I like. Therefore leading me to the conclusion that the guidelines are in fact a way of them blocking profiles so they can then get you to spend more money. I have been robbed don’t do it.Version: 5.126.0

The worst app everIt’s got terrible features. I matched and things were going well. I tried to expire the app and wanted to see what bff mode was like. Spent all of 2 minutes on bff mode and bumble erased ALL of my ongoing connections and chats .... and they’ve told me I can never recover them... so I can never contact the person I was talking to ever again just because I wanted to see what bff mode was all about. What a pointless feature, made worse by the fact it doesn’t even give you a warning before you switch to bff mode that all your Chats and connections will be deleted instantly forever and ever. The worst app ever.Version: 5.171.0

Scammed by bumbleI have been scammed by bumble,first asking for my credit card information. Then even after cancelling my subscription on the first week I was overcharged 80$. My original intent was to only pay 10$ and I ended up paying 90$. I was very careful and I'm always very careful with my credit card payments. This is a really bad experience and it had definitely left a bad taste in my mouth. Please if you want to use this application don't pay em a dime. This application has given me huge trust issues. Charging me for their failures. This application even creates a new low by hiding the unsubscribe button. You won't even find a way to contact them to unsubscribe. I'm feeling devistated and scammed..Version: 5.202.0

Ok, not the best way to meet peopleIt’s ok, you need to have a thick skin to be on these Apps, I find most ladies I match with on here either never message , or they message have 1 or 2 dialogues then drop off the face of the earth.Version: 3.36.0

Paid but didn’t receive.Bumble is such a nice clean, easy to navigate app. And as such, it was easy to accept the 14 day free trial. After a break, I retuned to Bumble and, through the subscriptions tab in my Apple id, I purchased a 1 month membership on Jan 7. It’s now Jan 11 and I still have not had the membership benefits applied to my app (only seeing the free version). I sent a screenshot of my purchase history, showing the transaction, however Bumble have responded to my query, requesting an iTunes receipt - which I did not receive. Ive also got in touch with iTunes on Jan 7. I received a ‘we’re looking into it’ response on Jan 9. And I’ve heard nothing since. So for the sake of the price of a one month membership - I give up. It’s so disappointing that an ever increasing number of entities are getting away with not delivering what you’ve paid for. The hidden recurring charges, the fine print, the difficulty experienced when simply trying to talk to someone. And yet, the process to take your money seems incredibly seamless..Version: 5.146.1

Disappointed but not surprised.Was having no luck matching despite it saying I had over 50 pending matches in the boost menu so after I ran out of people to swipe on for the 3rd time and only had 1 match I decided okay fine, I’ll spend the $14 and see these matches I apparently have. There were some people local that I should have came across on my own and there were others that lived over 5 hours away. For the local ones though, why did I have to boost to come across them? Terrible app. Doubt they care about my review though, they already got my $14. Don’t waste your time, just as bad as tinder if not worse..Version: 5.124.0

You can’t zoom In on the pics anymore? WtfCan’t zoom in no more, change that back.Version: 5.174.0

Not a place to find a relationshipThis app totally depends on what you’re looking for… like most dating apps. It’s definitely better than tinder but not miles ahead. If you want a relationship then I would say bumble is not appropriate. In my experience people are often dishonest on this app about what they really want… which granted people do anyway but it’s a waste of your time if they say they want a relationship when they don’t. I downloaded it about 2 years ago and I had better success then, than I did with it this time. Wether that’s because the app has changed or I’ve got different perspectives now I don’t know. If you want to build something worthwhile and meaningful with another person then the odds on this app are low. If you would like something more casual then this is probably your best bet. It’s very much based on looks alone because although you have a profile you can be pretty certain that they will swipe left or right straight away on the first picture, before looking at anything else! You have to be attracted to the person but intellect is equally as important in my opinion. It didn’t work for me but that’s just my preference..Version: 5.223.0

Genuine people - bad siteWhilst the people who register seem to be genuine which can be a rarity on some dating apps, the site is not to a standard you’d expect from a paying app. The first few days were good, plenty of genuine matches - I liked the fact you cut out any messages from weirdos by making the first move! That you can control this my messaging first. I’m in my late 40’s, a full job, a house to keep and two kids so I set my settings to those no more than 50 miles away as any further just isn’t doable and I’m tall so no one under 5’10, therefore I am aware that I’m limiting the matches, what’s annoying is not that the matches are more limited that down to me but the fact the people I’ve swiped left to (rejected) pop up again and again. I’ve rejected these Bumble, why send them again? Also annoying is that they send matches to people nearby, why? Just because they happen to be visiting nearby doesn’t make them a match of they actually live hundreds and in one case thousands of miles away. Don’t waste your money, brilliant concept but either they don’t have the numbers to match to you if you set a certain search criteria or they just don’t believe that the people you’ve said no to aren’t suitable! That said - I don’t think that anyone over 5’10 within 50 miles is that limited!.Version: 5.121.0

Be betterNeed to be able to like more people and more frequently. The wait is too long especially if only the women can message first..Version: 5.187.0

SexistI don’t like what women making the first move implies. And it just stresses me out. I don’t want to have to make the first move every single time. A better format would be an option for you to be the first to message or not. Male or female. Some people might like the option but i don’t. I’d like to chose. It’s the reason I don’t use the app. Good format other than that. (Edit: it only empowers women to make connections. It’s restricts men. And again, you’re response doesn’t address the fact it puts pressure on women to do all the work.).Version: 5.180.0

7 potential matchesAnd it doesn’t matter how much I swipe to get this bread, I’ll always find that I'm not allowed to swipe across any of these potential matches, not unless I buy bumble premium ? But I’m also realising that if I stay off bumble for a long time, it will show me all of my potential matches straight away when I comeback on... There’s no incentive for me to swipe people on bumble because I’m just going to end up in someone’s potential match-list & that person probably won’t see my profile either unless they buy bumble premium !! Thank you for reading my review & good day to you !!.Version: 5.174.0

Likes to block for no reasonI’ve been blocked multiple times. I’ve had to creat so many different profiles and each of them have been blocked. Didn’t even message anyone and I got blocked. Had no provocative photos, nothing mean, and still got blocked. I was using bumble bffs to find friends and I was as polite as anyone could be and was blocked for no reason and the customer service said it was a mistake on their end the first time then the second time said I had multiple reports but wouldn’t say what I did wrong..Version: 5.179.0

Block accounts for no reasonOut of nowhere they’ll just not allow you to log back on and there’s no point in contacting them for support because they won’t answer. Horrible app..Version: 5.202.0

Good, but dark patterns are not coolPersonally, I’m enjoying the app and I really love that you’ve added video chat. Presumably you did that in response to COVID, but it should have always been a feature. Please always keep it. It’s a fantastic way to get a “first look” at someone before you commit to making the effort to dress up nicely and go out. The reason for my 3-star review is the dark patterns you employ to trick people into buying a subscription when they join. I told 3 friends how great, and free, Bumble is. All 3 of them ended up feeling disappointed and ripped off after stumbling into a subscription and then not being able to find more than ~6 matches. One friend had to expand her search to ALL OF AUSTRALIA to get any matches! She has written to you requesting a refund and I really hope you oblige..Version: 5.182.0

Tinder for lazy menI love that Bumble is supposed to be female driven and has the policies of no tolerance to inappropriate behavior. But in practice, I’ve had far more luck making genuine connections on other apps. It seems like men swipe right on everyone but then decide if they’re actually going to respond if you reach out. The response rate even though we’ve matched is really low and the conversations even when I’ve tried to drive them are lackluster. I’m still seeing just as many profiles that indicate they want a hookup or nothing serious. Not something the app is responsible for, just an observation that the promise of putting women in control doesn’t seem to solve some of the problems of lazy men. The 24 hour time limit is also, while well-intentioned, frustrating without a hold button. I like to go backpacking, which is an activity that takes me off the grid. But if I match during that time I either have to pay for a redo or let a match go by. It doesn’t seem to value busy people. A feature that would let you put your profile into “away” mode seems like it could be really useful in helping to let busy, interesting people meet one another without looking disinterested..Version: 2.26.0

Awful Customer serviceI spent some money to buy coins to super swipe for someone. After an update on the app I lost a few remaining coins that I still had from my purchase. I reached out to customer service and have heard nothing back from them over a weeks time. Not even to say they are looking into the event. I’ll never spend money on this app again. Update: I wish I could post the screen shot response I got from customer service asking me to contact customer service via Twitter or Facebook. Uh, NO! First of all, did you even read my review that states I have reached out to customer service through the app and never received a response? So you want me to reach out to customer service again? No, it’s your job as customer service to get in touch with me, the consumer after I file a complaint. Secondly, you want me to reach out via social media? Absolutely NOT! Outlets like Facebook and Twitter go out to the world and in turn follows your activity for a better online and social media “experience.” So no, I will not be reaching out via social media. Thirdly, you’re a world wide app that uses social media for your customer resolutions? That’s a joke... with that being said, I’ll continue to use your app to it’s free potential, but will never spend money and I don’t recommend anyone ever spends money on this app..Version: 5.119.0

Can't Match/Guys Are LazyI'm going to make this short and simple. I've been on this app like five times before, and although I've met some incredible people and had some great times, I say that online dating is risky. It's for people who are lonely for some specific reason and want company, but don't necessarily want to date. That's not the apps fault, but I just want anyone who's reading this to know that if things don't work out it's not you, it's just online dating. Now on to technical issues and the men on there. I've logged on with my Facebook, and I put ton of care into my bio, even putting attractive photos and I haven't matched with anyone. I know how this sounds lol but I honestly think my phone or the app is broken (at least for my profile). I tested this my liking a whole bunch of profiles, even guys I'm not interested in (or dtf guys) and still nothing. It's been three days! Not one like. It's kinda peculiar. When I was on here before, within 24 hours there would be tons of matches, but now it's not working. Also, I think bumble should allow both parties to message first because it's too much pressure on me to always message first and then sometimes get nothing, because the dude believes he has to be chased and sold. It's weird. In conclusion, I'm going to try tinder..Version: 3.2.2

Limited reachThere are limited number of profiles and according to Bumble there are no further matches available in my area. I signed up for 3 months on Boost but there are no profiles to swipe either way..Version: 3.37.0

Could there be a messaging bug?I’m wondering whether there could be a bug in the messaging functionality? I’ve encountered a couple of situations where my match doesn’t respond to one of my messages and then, about a week later, they unmatch me. While the first reason one might think of that explains this is that I’ve said something that wasn’t appreciated, which I’m confident is not the case, or they’ve simply lost interest and moved on, which I hope isn’t the case. In either case, why would my match wait about a week before unmatching me, it’s almost as if they were waiting for something e.g. a reply from me? My most recent such experience was only two messages after the match, one message each within the first 24 hours of matching, and we were deciding on where to meet. I had suggested a location that I thought was convenient for my match as it was located in the same suburb that Bumble indicated she was located. I kept checking for messages in Bumble every couple of days for the week that followed in case the push notification related to her reply wasn’t received by my phone but she never replied and, about a week after I had replied, we were no longer matched. I wonder if she never received my reply or whether I never received her reply..Version: 3.27.1

Predatory PracticesThe app generated a fake list of like to get me to purchase the premium subscription..Version: 5.208.0

Bad appWanted to just try it out to make new friends and connections. Wasn’t too happy putting my pic up there cuz I didn’t know who I’m meeting there but this sneaky app after I gave it authorisation to my photos itself selected a photo of me and put it up there cuz I hid my eyes in the first pic I uploaded. I didn’t select the pic it chose for the profile somehow it uploaded itself. Very dodgy app. Plus you can only match up with certain people for a day and then the match also expires within 24hours if they don’t reply to you so not worth it!! I deleted it after they selected to put a photo of me from my photos itself..Version: 5.171.0

Remove the still interested/ archive push notification featureUsed to be a good app until they added this “still into this person” mid chat and if you hit continue you have to wait 24 hours for them to hit the still interested button even after you’ve both matched and have been talking. It ruins conversations and is just stupid 😂.Version: 5.140.0

So slowDecided to download the app and I l i t e r a l l y cannot get past the second loading screen. In fact, it’s a miracle if I get to the second loading screen a second time. I went as far as deleting, redownloading, restarting my phone, and it’s still so slow. I haven’t even gotten to the part where I get to set up my profile because that’s how slow it is..Version: 5.191.0

Feels weirdI’ve been using this app for a week now and it feels weird and the people seem weird. I’ve matched with at least 7 women to which 3 of em never texted me. Idk y this app has the whole “women text first thing” but it somewhat seems like a missed opportunity for the guy. It’s unfair when a women matched with you, but never text simply because women don’t do that all the time. Idk if it’s for empowerment, but normally women don’t text first. Also the women I’ve matched with all seem exactly the same. Idk if it’s just coincidental but they are all are boring and answer like days later. It’s somewhat confusing, considering they matched me and liked my photos. Last but not least, I’ve encountered women who for some reason delete their accounts.... only to make another one with a different name and different pictures? I can tell it’s the same women because “Duh it’s obvious” but it’s creepy and makes me wonder who tf I’m talking to. This app is good because it’s more freedom unlike tinder, I actually feel like I can talk to ppl on here. But it suffers from the same thing tinder does. It’s just the gratification u can possibly talk to these women. It’s not guaranteed or anything. Again this app isn’t bad, surly better set up then tinder but, just awkward and boring at times. Maybe because I’m in Japan idk..Version: 5.136.0

Why females match and barely reply ??Imagine getting 15 matches then they’ll all disappear 😭, ladies love it when men initiate, I’m sure it would be better if guys can message first too. Maybe let females have the option/filter to let guys message first if the want them to..Version: 5.202.0

All Value LostUsed to be a great app but no longer is as they removed the feature that made it valuable to a lot of women, on top of making a number of features paid and on higher paid tiers over time. The change of paid features I was willing to accept, but removing the ‘Kids’ feature is a dealbreaker and now the app is no better than Tinder without it. The feature was optional so I’m at a loss why they would remove it for everyone when so many people valued the setting as the app’s key point of difference. No longer my app of choice without being able to browse by the demographic of men that was most important to me..Version: 5.185.0

Be careful with “free trial”It’s a good app for expanding your options for dates / friends if used in conjunction with trying to meet people IRL. I found relying solely on bumble will leave you disappointed. Also, the 14 day free trial really isn’t free. You will be charged for 6 months of service. Thankfully I was able to get mine refunded by Apple..Version: 5.136.0

No matches.I downloaded bumble again yesterday and have swiped like a load of people and I don’t have one match or any interest, when I had it before I had quiet a few. And I could actually have some good conversations with people. It’s like my matches aren’t going through or they are swiping back and it’s just not going onto the message page because the message page is just blank. Maybe it’s nothing but if you could try and look into it that would be great. As I would seriously hate to download tinder instead bumble is much better..Version: 3.33.0

UnfairHave used this app near 3 years , got a match went on a date didn’t workout and then my acc got banned, email them back to back cause I like the app and just telling me we have received several complaints !! There is no live person or number to talk to and this just send you automated emails. Good app terrible and cruel customer service who banned you for no reason and would never listen and keep telling you that you did breach the guideline.Version: 5.203.0

Careful of superswipesBumble will often show me my friends inactive accounts, some who have even been overseas for months. Don’t waste your money super swiping these accounts. Bumble will never provide you stats on how many of your super swipes have been seen..Version: 2.23.0

Not badHonestly just pushed towards buying too much.Version: 5.187.0

Kids, annoying updates & notificationsThey allow kids on this app! They could be forcing all users to age and ID verify but think it would be too costly. It’s easy to “verify” someone is in the pics. Make your system stand out with real verification. Really really scummy to build in obsolescence and have the app not function to force people to upgrade. I can’t understand how you’d build such a buggy or risky app to begin with. The app is constantly sending notifications to get you back on the app too..Version: 5.203.0

Poor App Terrible Support TeamThis app has gradually got worse since I first created my profile in April 2018. The administration are impotent when it comes to policing profiles on numerous occasions I have reported the same people on multiple occasions. Furthermore when I’ve made complaints & suggestions I am subjected to patronising responses. It is easy for scammers to set up profiles every other profile contains social media handles! Clearly after followers & not dates! Majority of women who match are incapable of making the first move. Don’t waste money or time with this app. 2 dates in two and a half years! Dear Developers, I do not have Facebook or twitter I did email through the app & I have been ignored. At least 1 in 3 profiles contain a social media handle & at least 80% of the user ask for direct contact. There are some users I have reported at least 20 times. Why is it so easy to keep recreating a profile? Your moderation team is simply not fit for purpose..Version: 5.182.0

Inconsistent response from matchesI’ve had this app for around a month and as a woman I initially really liked the idea of messaging guys I’m genuinely interested in rather than endless messages from guys I haven’t actually matched with on other apps.. it worked great and managed to get a couple of dates, however in the last 2 weeks I’ve visited the app pretty much daily and messaged a good number of guys with absolutely no response from a single one of them, they’ve all timed out despite matching me. It could well just be me, but this rarely happened before which leads me to think from such a big jump in interest and activity to absolutely nothing at all that my account has suffered technically or I’m being restricted or limited because I haven’t yet paid any money for a premium subscription or a boost etc.. too much of a coincidence? Also, I can never seem to load the app with WiFi turned on, I physically have to turn off WiFi and use my mobile data which can be frustrating. The location is also a little too accurate for my liking, for anyone that lives in a small town or village it can be a bit daunting considering there are some horrible people out there! Started out with a great impression and now I’ve ended up completely ignoring the app and will be trying another site🤷🏼‍♀️.Version: 5.183.0

Very, very slow appVery slow to load, difficult to edit photos, glitchy and quite painful at times. Concept is good but execution is left wanting. The amount of time spent waiting for it to start up, at times, is frustrating. Quite often you have to completely close the app and reopen it if you want to move between profiles that you’ve matched with otherwise they just fail to load..Version: 2.30.0

Diversity & Interracial Dating NonexistentI think there should be a place that shows what ethnicity guys are interested in. I only say that because I am a black woman and there’s mostly white guys on here. And most white guys (especially in the South where I live) aren’t interested in talking to, let alone dating a black woman. It would be very helpful to have a “Who I’m looking for” feature on the guys’ profile. That way black women like myself are not having to guess on whether a guy would like me or not because of the color of my skin. (I found myself trying to see if a guy had black friends based upon his profile pictures or if he listened to black artists just to make a guess on whether he would even like me). My experience on Bumble made me feel undesirable & like I wasn’t even meant to be on here in the first place. And if that’s truly the case, I think it should be clarified in the App Store that this app is only for white people (I don’t mean to be cynical. I’m just being honest 🤷🏽‍♀️) I swiped right on a lot of white guys on here and none of them swiped right on me. The only person who did swipe right on me was the only black guy that I seen on here. Imagine that! I just think it would be easier to know beforehand if I had a chance of a guy outside my race liking me instead of just performing endless swipes on guys who wasn’t going to like me in the first place just because I am black..Version: 3.5.0

FeedbackJust some feedback from my experience.. I think having only 24 hours to message a match is too short. In my opinion, I think 3 or 4 days would be better. Life is busy and not everyone has the time to be on a dating site 24/7!! And if you want feedback, why do you need a nickname? I’ve tried 4 times and the ‘nickname’ is taken..Version: 3.23.1

Unused or dead profiles.For 11,000 ratings I found a lot of girls profiles are dead or not being used. I found scammers, empty profiles and plain lazy girls who just let your match expire. If admin could fix that I would give bumble 4/5 as the expirery for a match is just silly. Guys should also have the opportunity to message first..Version: 5.197.0

Too many notificationsBumble sends way too many notifications, mostly useless. I want a notification when I get a match and when I get a message-that is all. Sending me random notifications does not make me want to use bumble more than I usually would, it just annoys me and makes me want to delete it.Version: 5.202.0

AgeThey say it’s for 17+ but they blocked my account and said it’s for people 18 and older.....Version: 5.135.0

Do not purchase!!!This app is run by criminals. Who knew a simple mistake in making purchases could cost me $50 because of a terrible refund policy! You should all be ashamed of scamming people out of their hard earned money with your horribly designed app. I’m being PUNISHED because of their greed..Version: 3.2.0

Ok but needs some changesSo I have been using Bumble for about 6 months. The thing I don’t like about Bumble is I have a preference to meet people within 60 kms . Yet people can like me from ALL OVER. I paid for a week so I could see my beeline. It was a waste of money because they were all from interstate. Why even like someone from such a distance?? I think that Bumble should not allow people to like me if they are not within my preferred distance. I won’t be paying again. Another thing is I get people showing up on my list who I KNOW I DID NOT swipe right on?? How does that happen???.Version: 5.191.0

Feel UnsafeThere’s an individual on here who does work in my neighborhood and has come onto me in a way that made me highly uncomfortable. He leers at me every time he’s around. I have blocked him on bumble only to see he has popped up since I blocked him about 7 more times!!!!!!! In addition to this, in June I sent a Twitter DM to inquire about the free boost trial. They told me they were having issues with boost and they would manually apply it to my account. I had about 1,000 profiles to scroll through and I had gotten through about 25 and without changing any preferences, while I was in the middle of looking at the bumble Match Queue, my ENTIRE queue disappeared! There were a few accounts I saved to look at better later and hundreds I hadn’t even seen that disappeared in a flash. I wrote them on Twitter and the bumble rep was less than helpful and it got to the point where they were just rude. Later I told them I wanted the boost removed from my account completely but was told they cannot do that. Since the time Boost was manually applied by them it rendered that whole match queue area useless. The trial has expired; it never worked anyway, but now even the blurred out profiles are gone. I’ll have guys who “super like” me that don’t show up in the queue as blurred out profiles. Bumble used to be a good app. The boost thing was just an annoyance but now that I feel unsafe with the block feature not working, I had to write a review and disable my account..Version: 2.30.0

Okay app. Gotten more costly for less though.I rejoined this week and have to say, The new updates are terrible! The layout, what the even.. As for the paid features, they’re now a total rip off from the old days.. no 3 free shake ya phone and rewind your mistake of swiping right anymore.. you have to pay for it. It’s disappointing to see the app try to be more like tinder... Also it’s so annoying that some guys match and don’t reply, no matter what type of greeting they get. It’s no wonder women stop making effort with their messages and give a basic ‘hi’ when many of their matches don’t even bother replying in the first place... must just be an ego boost for many. This is coming from girlfriends who use the app too.. while I like that I don’t get harassed with disgusting messages, Unlike tinder, it’s off putting to always have to message first and put in effort to what I say and get nothing back lol DONT MATCH IF YOU'RE NOT INTERESTED..Version: 5.179.0

Bumble cares more about political correctness than it does a false abuse report.I think we are all aware of the tension in politics that has happened in the last few years. You go on dating apps and everyone has their political views listed. Some of it hateful and some of it empowering. At the end of the day we’re all protected under the first amendment to express our views. Well someone most likely read what my bio had to say and decided to report me for “abuse”. The fact that there are people on these apps that are actual victims of abuse is what makes this disgusting. It’s fine to disagree with someone but to falsely report their account to have it deleted is something else. I messaged bumble customer support directly about this and they were not willing to listen to my side of the story. This app goes in line with cancel culture and has double standards for the users of its app. What I had on my bio was nowhere near controversial as to the stuff I would read about killing cops, causing harm to people with more right wing political views, etc. This app needs to review it’s rules and what it considers to be abuse, violence and hate-speech. And it also needs to do more homework and better investigation on when someone falsely reports an account. The fact that my account was taken down but there are others with worse things on there is disgusting..Version: 5.208.0

Not very freeFor a free app there are too many things you have to pay for.Version: 5.196.0

New daily limit ruins itHave been using Bumble quite often as it is (sorry I mean it was) by far the best app in terms of not having a daily limit, the standard of females appeared to be better and there was little to no scammers. Now they have introduced a daily limit, and it’s such a small limit, that it has totally ruined it. Bumble stood out from Tinder because of no limit, now they are preying on guys even more by making us pay to actually get some decent swipes. Just another app ruined by greed for cash..Version: 5.151.0

Dosent work if you’re an average blokeBumble unfortunately does not work if you haven’t been blessed with good looks. I’ve been on this thing for ages and barely get any matches. I haven even tried the spotlight and super liking people but nothing helps. Changed my profile my picture a hundred times but to no avail. I’m just gonna die alone 😅.Version: 5.120.0

Well built but not worth itThis app interface is really well built which is where to 2 stars come in. However they must be going broke to pay the overhead because most times this app feels like a absolute cash crab. These rates are ridiculous and confusing. Expect to spend a bundle of cash if you hope to get results. Better you take a walk outside or go to a bar to meet people at least your money will buy you booze! Perhaps a lot of fun for kids pubbing their Instagram profiles but it’s a near total waste of time for grownups. Even if you got fat pockets you will feel jipped. Will delete this app I'm sure. Damn good interface thou. Better off showing me a bunch of ads then charge me me up like some welfare state. Food stamps anyone?.Version: 5.183.0

Users are UnhappyEveryone is complaining about the lack of any free filters and no backtrack option now. Let’s be honest: people don’t really want to pay for all this crap because paying doesn’t really make the app better for everyone. You can’t argue that it’s overpriced. Also, the notification system on the app is poor. If I didn’t check it more often I could easily miss some connections and I know some people have missed the match with me because they never got a notification about it. In addition there are too many flaky people on the app which makes it almost worthless. There should be some kind of algorithm on the app that punishes those who are here just to collect matches and who don’t communicate once matched. But then again, some of that could be due to a poor notification system. Bumble, why don’t you just use advertising to pay most of the bills? It’s the perfect platform for it and might actually benefit everybody. Maybe continue with memberships for the people who really want the fancy stuff, but you don’t have to take away everything from the user base. Otherwise it’s just another Tinder. As things are now, I really can’t take take the app seriously at all and am enjoying other apps like Hinge more. Time for real change Bumble..Version: 5.168.0

Claims not fulfilledSays women get the first move but no, we get to see a few (very, VERY few in comparison to other sites) men over a week, but unless they show interest in the woman, there is no way to make contact. Must be designed by men as this IN NO WAY GIVES WOMEN THE FIRST MOVE. Certainly do not waste any money in attempt of a better experience with this app. It’s exactly the same. Waste of time. Totally. Wish I could give a minus rating. It would be minus 5.Version: 3.37.0

There’s better dating apps.I’ve given it 2 stars because of how easy the app is to use, now the downfalls : - The quality when uploaded completely ruins the photo by giving it a poor grainy contrast. With the modern technology you would think such an app wouldn’t have issues adjusting the photo size so the quality is still there. - I’ve had more matches in a day on other dating sites than I’ve had 2 months on this app. The conversations normally just fall flat because of the convenience of easily swiping right. So men can rapid like multiple females without even taking a look at the profile. - they don’t allow you to hit back even if you accidentally said no. 90% of other dating apps give you at least 2-3 chances to go back until you’re no longer allowed. Very frustrating. - there’s no options for not knowing if you even want children, you either want them or you have them. It’s 2021 guys. - the pricing they’re asking people to pay isn’t even worth it. There is no benefit to you or the people you’re talking to. - you either get the option of looking out 160km away or the entire country. No in between, and without even using the data it has on your location is will recommend people that are thousands of km away. Would be nice to have the choice of provinces or expanding the search area..Version: 5.202.0

Ladies first, OK, the rest, not greatSo the core idea of forcing ladies to reach out first, I’m fine with that. However, post filtering, the mechanism used of like or dump really gets in the way of you looking over everyone, shortlisting a few and then opening yourself up to being contacted one (or a few) at a time allowing you to choose the order you open yourself up to contact. As things stand, the order you open yourself up to contact is dictated by the order the profiles turn up in the app. I don’t think I’m explaining this very well but it lead to me having two matches, one of which I had to tell I couldn’t chat with since I’d just started chatting to another. To be honest, a yes/no/maybe system would solve all of that for me and I’d be willing to pay for it. Also, why can’t I define the areas I’m looking for matches in better? For me, travel time is key (to theirs, to mine, to work...) not the meaningless as the crow flies distance from where I am right now to where they are right now (not really into using the app at work). Hope that’s of some use to you? Sorry, not going to use Twitter and I don’t have time for Facebook. In response to the developer reply, I don’t want to be chatting to more than one lady at a time. Is that the kind of guy Bumble is targeting? I just want to be able to find the most promising match, see where that goes, if it doesn’t work then move onto the next..Version: 5.172.0

Feeling Like A Waste Of TimeNothing but swiping for two months and all I get is one person who chats for maybe ten minutes then nothing for a week before the match disappears. At least set a feature so when you unmatch someone it sends a message and maybe a reason so people don't feel ghosted. There is also no way to know when the person was last on the app so you have no idea if you are swiping someone who uses the app or has already deleted it so more wasting time. Add something that says when the person last logged into the app or delete profiles that have been dormant for long periods of time. This is the second time I have used this app and it's getting beyond a joke. For people who are trying to find someone, it make it seem like ghosting, more than a dating app..Version: 3.39.0

Some good ideas marred by restrictions.Fair play to Bumble for trying to do something different. But I can’t honestly say I had a good experience. Sure my own personality and profile were probably the things stopping me from getting more dates, but not being able to remove questions you’d answered if you wanted to change tack was a big minus, and Bumble heavily implies it’ll penalise you if you delete your profile and start over. All it means is I’ll probably just use another dating app in future if I want to try again. Even with a some of the ideas like women messaging first and a 24 hour limit on seeing profiles if you don’t send a message being good ones. You’re still limited by human nature on these apps, and these features don’t really change the experience that much compared to Tinder. Probably worth bearing in mind if you think Bumble will change your online dating experience..Version: 5.136.0

Gender biasSo I will start with this statement bumble is basically an app for misandrists. I strongly believe it is a feminist based concept to empower women in the wrong way. It’s a cool concept at first but if you step back and look at is in reverse it would be hell to pay if women where not allowed to speak first. People are creepy not just men. I came across several women that where psychotic and severely delusional about reality of relationships. It’s not very diverse it’s for white men whom are 28-40 making 6 figures a year. That’s what it’s seems to be the status quo “status”. If you do match with a female to beat the 24 hr timer they say “hello” and nothing else. So then you stay in que indefinitely. You never here back from them. My account was moderated for no reason. I don’t use bad language I’m respectful. They could not tell me what I said to violate policy. It’s total garbage app I’ve been on it a year now to give it a fair chance. Well chances are you won’t get far on Bumble unless you are a beta male. This is so sad society has come to this. I’m going back to the old fashioned way of meeting. Bumble needs a lot of changes to make it male friendlier. Who wants to sit and wait for days till someone response to you. Then the women complain about being ghosted and being lied to. Well the women on the app do the same thing. ✌🏽.Version: 5.127.1

BEWARE OF FLAKES, INSECURITIES , & USERS!!!So this app is not what it used to be. I got this app when it first came out since I was hearing it was a platform more serious then Tinder at the time. I used it for awhile and I had some decent luck. I took some time off due to meeting someone in person and after 5 years I eventually made my way back. Since I’ve been back it’s been a horrible experience. I constantly get a lot of likes but they just sit in the Q until they expire with no way of engaging the person. I honestly think it’s for Insecure women to feel good about themselves without the commitment😂 I’ve had a couple conversations (With no indication of it going badly) leave off on a planned date for the night and by the next morning they are gone from the platform. The few dates that have gone thru had me running all over the place paying getting the tab just to tell me the next day their not looking for anything, they don’t want anything to do with me, or I’m not the one. So after much self-reflection and being a pretty self-aware human I can honestly say I was a gentleman and did nothing out of context. Which brings me to the conclusion that this app is filled with insecure, scammy, and users. I would personally recommend Hinge or even Tinder is better then the experience I had on this one..Version: 5.186.0

Scroll up was way betterBumble changed the UX and now you have to tap instead of scrolling up to view a profile. I very much preferred the scroll mechanic because it was way more fluid and way more efficient. Moreover, scrolling up and down is like viewing a webpage, and a rather familiar way to navigate. I guess they did it to copy other dating apps (copying to make your product worse is poor decision making), or to minimize accidental left/right swiping when people try to scroll up? Well the latter happened so infrequently, it didn’t make sense to screw with the UX and create an overall inferior product..Version: 5.175.0

Garbage InterfaceWhy can we not scroll through a profile anymore? How is tapping to changes pages any better? It’s not. If the app defaults to framing a photo around its geometric centre, at least let the user adjust the photo in the app to centre around the subject. Most people aren’t positioned in the exact centre of the frame. I guess Bumble is making changes just to stay relevant. Roll back to the previous design..Version: 5.174.0

Block Feature Doesn’t Work; Horrible Customer ServiceI’ve reached out multiple times to Bumble, and I’ve never received a response. I’ve even sent them screenshots (since I can’t send screen recordings) that prove their Block feature does not work. I can Block someone, then see that same person within a week. Actually, I blocked someone last night, and this morning, guess what... there they were in my search again! The Block feature isn’t for paying members only, but guess what, I AM a paying member. So I can see these people I’ve blocked in my Bee-line AND in my search. Obviously you’re not treated any better or with anymore priority if you’re a PAYING member. So poor customer service is going to be equally distributed between non-paying and paying members. Notifications come through sometimes, sometimes I just have to go into the app to see the message. Location feature isn’t accurate either, and conflicting at times. I can have someone “4 miles away” in DFW, but they’re listed as also being at a Florida airport. That’s literally impossible. Bumble did a whole campaign against guns being displayed in pictures, but they could care less about bloodied hunted and fished animals in pictures. No blood=bad, Blood=good. Tell me how that makes sense. 😒.Version: 2.31.0

Useless unless you payI’ve had this app for a few weeks and get no where. I’ll be lucky if I get 2 matches a week and then that’s as far as it ever goes. At first I thought “I guess I’m not that appealing” but then I noticed the boost button which allows you to see who has liked you to begin with and it turns out I have quite a few likes and of course there’s a catch. You have to pay for their extortionate weekly subscription to access it at all. I wasn’t doing that so I thought I’ll just grind the swipes until one shows. Literally like 200 swipes later and not a single match yet I’ve apparently got plenty banked up. So either they’ve locked me out until I splash my cash or it’s a lie and they’re trying to entice me to pay. Either way, all they want is your money and it seems there’s no point me using this app anymore. It just doesn’t work for me unless I pay. Good thing I’m not insecure, can only imagine how demoralising this would be for those that never get matched. Terrible dating service..Version: 3.23.1

So disappointingThis is the second time I’ve had this app. I’ve had it for several weeks, and I’ve swiped over one hundred people, and not had a single match. It could be me, it could be my profile, but it could be the way the app actually works. I suspect the expiration on matches puts pressure on women that makes them even more reluctant to match with people. In principle, I don’t mind the concept of the app, but in practice it’s not working, at least not for me. As well as this, I have no access to analytics, so I don’t know how many times my profile has been seen: if I knew, for instance, that I’ve been passed over 100 times, then I could definitely say it’s me, and my profile. But if it’s only because I’m the 1000th guy in the queue, I’m probably not going to have any success at all. The first time I had this app last year I managed to get three matches (hallelujah), and would you believe... none of my matches initiated a conversation, and the matches expired. If you want a pointless, disappointing experience, then this could well be the app for you..Version: 5.182.0

They removed the backtrack featureNow you have to pay for bumble boost. No thanks. Backtrack was the only reason I chose bumble over tinder.Version: 5.166.1

HateStupid app people shouldn’t just be able to report you for no reason and then block you out.. makes no sense take this away or don’t make everyone get block out when people just report.Version: 3.7.0

Paid but still locked outI paid than it too me a couple of days to get In by contacting support than at the time of writing this I have a week before my paid subscription runs out and they are asking me to upgrade my account not good when you they only give you a certain time to respond to people if this issue isn’t fixed I will be getting rid of Bumble and telling everyone about this issue I will be getting off Bumble after this subscription runs out because when you the time I have sorted it out by slow back and forth by contacting support I am robbed of a couple of days they won’t extend And now I was charged after I canceled my subscription I will be canceling my bumble all together.Version: 3.26.0

Complete waste of timeIf you’re looking for a dating app that genuinely works, this isn’t it. After having it for almost a week, I was still left without any matches. Fair enough if that was my own fault and nobody had liked me, but the app told me that I had been liked by 6 people and I could pay to see who they were. Not wanting to waste money, I continued swiping in the hope that I’d match with them or swipe left and the number would go down. Now I’ve apparently ran out of people in my area, yet the app is still telling me that there are 6 people who have liked me. So either this includes the people who I’ve already swiped left to, or the app is deliberately holding these people back in the hope that I’ll spend all my free time obsessively swiping, or give in and pay the money. Either way it’s a complete waste of time, and it prioritises getting people to obsess over it rather than actually matching people. If you’re genuinely interested in meeting people then you’re better off looking elsewhere..Version: 3.26.0

No matchesI’ve subscribed to this app a few times in the past, and I keep seeing a pop-up that says subscribe to see people who already like you. In my opinion Bumble is better than the other useless dating apps, but there’s a huge flaw. I NEVER HAVE ANY MATCHES!!! I’ve unsubscribed before in the past because the app said I had matches and when I clicked on them; nothing was there. Kept it for a few days after then unsubscribes. Downloaded again a few months later to see if it might actually work this time and show me people that’ve actually swiped on me. Low and behold “You have matches” popped up, I clicked on matches, and NO MATCHES again. At this point I’m just wasting my money subscribing, because without the subscription obviously you can’t see who liked you, or anything. Well you can’t see your matches when you subscribe either. What’s the point of having the thing if I’m just swiping with no results. Bumble Support before you reply back, yes I have the latest IPhone software and app update, deleted the app and downloaded again. If it’s a programming problem then it should be an easy fix; if not, then people are losing their money because y’all have everyone subscribed to see matches and everything else with a subscription just to turn around and get nothing in return..Version: 3.18.1

Deceptive with your matching preferences.Not a bad app. Haven’t gotten any targeted ads yet, and haven’t been smothered with obvious fakes either. I’m giving the lower rating because they have basically put the “Dealbreaker” buttons in your range settings as a placebo. I’ve been trying to go mile-by-mile outward, because there is an entire college just outside of 40 miles away, and my queue will be entirely dominated by people from that college if I don’t restrict my range. What I find happening anyway is I will still see people OUTSIDE that range after I’ve set my range to be a dealbreaker! Even sneakier, I will sometimes find that this setting has been turned off for me, as if they’re trying to pull a fast one on me. In addition, how is it that one day I can swipe through every profile in a specific range, but the next day there’s several less than 10 miles out? Not likely they made their profile day, since that little “new here” bubble appears on their profile. There is clearly some sneaky business going on to restrict your swiping to people who will never see your profile past a certain point, and hold some in reserve so you can swipe on for longer. In the end, however, these practices are less predatory than most of your other options for dating apps. If you’re dead set on picking on, this is probably your best bet..Version: 5.203.0

More customers needed in the far northTo make this a better service.. I think a bit advertisement would be beneficial!.Version: 3.17.0

They stole my money! Beware of this app!I used bumble for years, and had really enjoyed the app. I had a match that I’d been talking with ask for my Snapchat, and after I gave it to him, he started asking me how much it would cost for explicit photos. Naturally I was offended and didn’t accept his request or respond to the messages. About an hour later I went onto bumble and saw my account was blocked for trying to sell services. I reached out to bumble about the mistake and was told they wouldn’t give my account back. I made a new one and a week later was having technical issues. I send a report to bumble about it and received a message that everything was working fine. I downloaded the trial of boost to see if that would fix the issue, but it didn’t so I cancelled it one day into the fourteen day trial. When I went on to the app, I saw that once again my account was blocked for trying to buy or sell services. I reached out to support yet again, because I did NOTHING to cause this, and was told that they wouldn’t give my account back and made no mention of refunding the money I shouldn’t have been charged with in the first place. This app presents itself as a safe space for women, which is what I liked about it, but it really isn’t considering I’m out $50, which is a lot during a pandemic and blocked because some random man was angry I wouldn’t sell him nudes..Version: 5.181.1

Updates = no longer able to useThere’s a new update and it’s not syncing to the app on my phone. Tried to delete and redownload and still not working. Disappointed as I’ve lost my networking contacts now!.Version: 3.31.0

New update not an improvementReally wish I hadn’t updated my app. It takes ages to load now. So long, in fact, that often times I don’t bother using it at all. I also am not a fan of the new ways to look through a persons profile. The photos sometimes stay blurry and it’s just awkward going from photo to blurb to photo to blurb, blurb, blurb. I felt the scrolling was a better function. Really hoping there is an update soon, will likely delete the app otherwise. Unrelated to the new functionality the app was a decent way to meet decent people (when I didn’t run out of people to match)..Version: 5.177.0

Regression in recent monthWhen I installed the app, I could see all details or put longer review of myself than 2 sentences. Now not only I can see only very limited details but often just selected at random. Today even height is not provided in cm but in inches. Navigation is not intuitive (for example now you tap on person pages, but when you view IG, you have to swipe left - once or twice instead of swiping left on IG photo app took it as tap and swipe left to pass on a person 😖). Chat part is very good, tried video call once or twice and it was fine but the rest keeps getting worse each day..Version: 5.186.0

InaccessibleI like the concept of this app and was interested in trying it out. Sadly I got as far as downloding and registering only to find out it is not user friendly to the blind. I use Apple IPhonevoice over and this app is not compatible with the feature. Now have to try deregistering and uninstalling in order to go find another app. Suggest a conversation with Apple to make it accessible. Thanks and no please do not suggest I go on a dating app for the disabled..Version: 2.24.0

Useless appUpdate: Their response is false. No where did they send me a message asking me to verify my account/identity. So no, they did not investigate my account nor did they ever follow up with me before arbitrarily deleting my account. Original review: Deleted my profile saying it was fake, they didn’t even give me a chance to verify, I would have gladly sent in photo verification. Meanwhile, nearly all my matches were bots and fakes, this site is filled with fake female profiles and they block actual people, go figure.Version: 5.203.0

Going downhillI really enjoyed this app more than other dating apps. Bumble was my absolute favorite. However, I see its starting to be like other apps. I noticed changes , back swiping you got 3 free chances . Now they want to charge with no chances at all. And paying to swipe through matches limits me to meeting someone, or to the very least slows the process down very much. Waiting a whole 24 hours before being able to search again because I “used my limit for the day” is very frustrating. Nor will I pay 10 dollars and up . 10 being just unlimited for a week. They’re trying to find their ways to make more money , I get it. But at this rate I think I outta just dress nice and go to the produce section to find someone. Rather than sit and wait a whole dang day to swipe again. Come on people. Oh . And my photo of shooting a legal pellet gun at a shooting range supervised was taken down. I included that photo because that is one of my favorite hobbies. I am not a gun owner and do no shooting outside of the range nor with anything more intense than a pellet gun. But I guess a legal sport wasn’t “politically correct “ and went against their standards. Photo was taken down near immediately..Version: 5.166.1

Change colour of background pleaseHello Bumble admin, Please please change the recent colour change of text messages coming in! I honestly can hardly read them when the text is white in a caramel background!! Also, suggest regular trial offers of a weekend/24 free trial period of what is in offer if I pay... so many sites offer not much difference and I’m not willing to pay to them all till I know what I get fir my money. Let us try and see please..Version: 5.132.0

FilterWe should be able to use a filter to narrow down results. For example if I don’t want anyone who drinks or smokes I’d like to see only those people. Id also like to filter by ethnicity..Version: 3.6.0

Crashes all the timeIf this app didn’t crash as much as it does, I’d probably give it 4 stars. I can’t use it without a VPN. At all. And even then it’s unstable at best. It hardly ever loads, pictures take forever to load and when they do they’re often blurry. If I want to upload/change pics of mine, I get error messages that they’re not recognised or unsuitable. Believe me, I know the difference between a clear shot and a dark one! In this day and age there is absolutely no reason why a platform this big and well-known should have such a slew of issues. I literally have to apologise if/when I message people for the length of time it has taken for me to send a message after matching since I can only do so at home with my VPN, definitely not when I’m out and about. How is that conducive to meeting somebody when, before you even do, it sounds like you’re making excuses already?? Get your act together Bumble. If your IT department are that bad, replace them!.Version: 3.3.0

Finicky AFI've lost count of the amount of times my phone has slipped, or I've just been scrolling normally and I've ended up swiping right on someone, or even accidentally super-swiping. It's frustrating, and subsequently matching with said person is awkward. It comes as no surprise that of all the apps I use, Bumble is the one that I get the lowest quality matches on: because you can literally match with someone by accident. Fix your UI, and maybe make it so matching with someone requires a little effort. This left/right swiping nonesense is garbage..Version: 5.208.0

Another scamming dating AppI’m not sure if bumble is struggling financially because of the current global situation but they have taken (like a few other dating apps) to misleading their customers in order to make a buck. I have had a profile set up for a while. I have set my parameters to find a match to being within a few kms of my City. This cuts out a lot of over seas and distant match’s, that imo, are generally a waste of time. Recently they added the ‘boost’ whereas if you pay a premium, you get to match with your secret admirers. Within a couple of days I had a dozen or so matches so I paid for the feature. I checked out my now uncovered list of secret admirers and was shocked to see that not one of them was in my City!! They were scattered across the country and I believe a couple of them were not even in my country! I immediately contacted support (within 5 mins) asking for a refund on the basis that they had been disingenuous and had tricked me into paying for the subscription which is against consumer law in my country. They declined to refund me because I had agreed to the terms and conditions. Luckily, Apple agree to abide by consumer laws of my Country and have refunded me. Bumble have been disingenuous and unscrupulous in their transaction with me and I would strongly recommend that people use one of the many dating apps that conduct business ethically. I gave them 1 star as I could not give them 0!.Version: 5.161.1

Bumble scamI was given a swipe that offered a 14 day trial and decided to try it out. However, once I went through with the apple link and accepted, it said I purchased 3 month for over 60 dollars, lead to believe I was receiving a free trial and then signing up for a 3 month membership after trial upon testing of services and non cancellations. This just happened so I am hoping it’s a mistake and something that can be reversed, pleased respond as this is a ridiculous cost to unexpectedly pay..Version: 2.17.0

Used to be BetterI’ve been using bumble on and off for about 2 1/2 years now, and when I first got it I really enjoyed using it: a reasonable number of matches, it had more serious people, the fact that women go first was novel and made it feel like a more balanced dating space, and useful prompt questions and info in the bios made it easier to gauge personality than on other apps. However, after moving to a new city I’ve started having some problems. I know that I can’t blame the app for people not swiping on me, but I’ve gone from one or two matches per week and several people in the like queue (the standard case for my entire previous history of my usage of the app) to literally no matches or likes in over a month. I’ve tried deleting the app, re-logging in and out and resetting distance settings in case it was a technical glitch here, but nothing has improved it. I’m now getting the impression that it’s not me, but rather that because Bumble has started to “hide” or throttle accounts that haven’t paid for premium. Because of this, the app is no longer fun and a good way of finding people, but rather just a zero sum game where I now feel like there’s no point. A shame..Version: 5.133.0

Dont waste your money! Or only get one week and see for yourself!Not worth it! There are no special features. Once you swipe to see potentials. You don’t see them again for 24hrs! Cannot believe this is being used!.Version: 5.202.0

Do not waste your moneyBumble is the worst dating app I have ever used, period. I have used most of the other ones, and have found much more success on practically every other site. Bumble ropes you in with the idea that it is a feminist dating app, but whether by design or not, this really only benefits the guys. Even then, I have come across several reviews from men online stating that they are not having much success with the app either, so I am assuming it only really benefits very attractive guys. As a woman who has not had any issues meeting men on on other dating sites, my biggest problem with this app is that it makes men lazy. The guys who are actually having women message them first don’t put in any effort in conversations, and It’s like the men on this site literally do not know how to hold a conversation and expect the woman to do all the work. Just because the woman is expected to send the first message, does not mean that you should simply forget how to talk like a normal human being. I am also suspicious that many of the attractive men and attractive women on this site, a lot of the profiles are fake profiles. I’ve done some searches of reviews, and this seems to be the general consensus that many people believe. Don’t waste your money and find another dating app; there are plenty out there that will help you successfully meet more people without being so frustrating and irritating to use..Version: 2.33.0

Feels like a scamNotifications don’t work Feels like they want you to pay just to match with people.Version: 5.208.0

A political organization?Initially I liked the idea of Bumble. I think too often other dating apps allow users to match, but make no effort to actually connect. With Bumble’s “consequence feature” you lose a match if you do not reach out in time. This ensures serious inquiries and leaves those looking for hookups to the likes of Tinder. With all that being said, I found my Bumble account inaccessible one day due to a political blanket statement regarding certain current events this year (2020). I scoured the pop up looking for the elusive “X” in a corner to get out of it. However, my only option was to click “Accept.” I have no clue what I was accepting. It seems Bumble was forcing users to accept their platform’s political interpretation and narrative. I fundamentally disagree with this. Bumble is an app designed ultimately for dating, and not a political organization taking a stand. Which stifles diversity on the app. At this point, perhaps Bumble should even consider removing political orientation from the “about you” section. After being forced to click accept or never access my profile again. I hastily and happily deleted my profile. Prior to this I would have generally considered Bumble as one of the better dating apps available. However, unless you accept and agree to their political narrative, you’ll find yourself unable to use the app for what it was designed for, dating..Version: 5.176.0

This is not worthy of $19.99I have used this app 2 times last year hoping I could find a relationship with a guy on there. At first the guys reply and they text me first on time but that’s for BFF side. On dating side, I’m not sure what happened, anytime I swipe yes on them to see if they will reply “THEY DONT” for 2 days after they swipe “yes” to you. I’m not sure if this app is worth the spending the money if the guys don’t have time to text the girls the swipe “ I give up on bumble I’m never going on there again..Version: 5.202.0

Waste of moneyI randomly get push notifications saying I have a match, but no match. Or the latest saying I won’t be shown to women looking through the app. Unsure why you’d ever want to notify me of this. I’ve paid for this app for about a year and had 0 success. Any like I give to a girl is wasted because they don’t see my profile. After months of receiving no likes or matches, I messaged them. There was no help, and instead I was told I’m stupid and wrong. Very off brand for Bumble, and very off putting in general. Then a few weeks later I had 100s of people who had liked me all in matter of hours. - I’m on other apps, I receive likes and matches so I knew something was wrong and then bam it was fixed. I still don’t receive any forward matches though - if someone likes me, I can match with them - but if I like them, I’ll never see them because they don’t see me. This app is a sham and unethical. Stop messing with algorithms and make it simple - you like someone, they see you automatically. I’m confident when my subscription runs out I’ll be treated normally by their software but once you pay them they want you to keep paying them - being in a relationship is a fast way to stop those payments. It’s in their biz interest to have paying customers receive no likes. Honestly Apple and google shouldn’t distribute this app if that’s true, they’re unethical and don’t practice what they preach..Version: 3.2.0

Barely functions usually and now won’t openLovely concept of empowering women to make the first move. If you live in Scotland this app is useless as there are very few members to match with. Slow to open and upload any profiles and then can only view about 1 or at most occasionally 2 profiles per day. Limits on profile configuration so rigid gives no real sense of the person. Frustrating time outs option means you have to check the app daily which is a nuisance when the app takes forever to upload. Now app doesn’t open at all beyond initial beehive symbol. Frustrating getting notifications saying people have matched or messaged you and no way to view or reply. This is with a so called premium membership. I suggest don’t waste your time unless you live in a big city in England. In the last 5 months (membership expires Sept) have only been able to chat with 2 people for about a min each. Hardly a platform for relationships..Version: 5.226.0

Bad Idea - Not every Idea is Good IdeaThat’s a bad idea that a man can’t even initiate contact to a lady he likes. Just swiping right means nothing. I tried myself this idea of giving females the first right to contact & snatching it away from males. That’s human psychology that females like to be chased & want male to initiate the contact. Men had lot more success or normal dating Apps than this one where they can at least initiate contact with a lady rather than sitting around & waiting for a response. On top of that you have only 24-48 hours . That’s ridiculous. Bumble makers Should’ve said that this App isn’t for men, lol so All Men Don’t Waste Your Precious Time.Version: 5.132.0

Love the concept, not the end resultI’ve been a fan of Whitney Wolfe for a number of years and love the concept of the App. However with millennials using dating apps less frequently and with far less effort, the Bumble model doesn’t appear to work and spark meaningful conversation with its time-limits. I wonder how it could be improved. Perhaps boys are able to message first too? And perhaps you can keep the conversation going, but it gets deleted if no interaction has occurred for 30 days? The current dating apps don’t seem to be working. I do like the brand of Bumble but I have stopped using it because it’s extremely difficult to get an understanding of what a guy is actually like in real life as the conversation is sporadic and largely small talk. People don’t invest enough time and energy in creating meaningful connections on these apps so I wonder whether this model really works anymore?.Version: 5.118.0

Delete it allI’ll give it 2 stars because there’s potential and the function is still there but overall this is a waste of time. Women messaging first makes matching a waste of time because you can’t stand out instantly by messaging them. Also all they do is send “Hi”, waiting for me to start a topic so what’s the point. Also they have 24 hours to message you and you have 24 hours back which is nonsense. For full access it costs about $22 a month and Tinder costs $8 a month. I can swipe until my phone dies on tinder but it might take 5 minutes on Bumble ie low amount of users. You can run out of likes on free Tinder but on free Bumble it’ll close you out on just swipes alone for 24 hours. The filter options are nice where you can pick height, exercise, drinking, smoking etc but the high quality selection on here will run out quick (standards vary). I see this as a break from the toxicity of tinder where 2/3 are sex scammers or game players but it feels the same after a couple days. I have had a fair amount of success on tinder (hookups, dates, and relationships) but do yourself a favor and don’t go on any dating apps. Do it the old fashion way and wait until you get lucky out there. You’ll save yourself stress, time, and whatever emotions you bring into it..Version: 5.189.0

No matchesIve had bumble for about three months now after getting out of a relationship. When I had bumble in the past I was getting 2-3 matches a day, this was a bout a year ago. In the past three months I’ve gotten 2 matches. Using the same pictures on tinder and not having any issues with matches in there. So what gives bumble? This seems to be a common problem. Is my profile just not being shown to anyone I swipe right on?.Version: 5.210.0

😡I used to love this app. It was the only dating app that didn’t bs you with capital gain rubbish, it allowed you to backtrack 3 times for free no questions. It gave you a hint as to who had swiped on you (blurred out), but the pictures are now reduced in size and has been made harder to distinguish. It used to let you come across all those matches eventually in a short period of swiping but now it leaves one continuously so you won’t know it is until you get more than one.. The app forces you to update your ios after so long, which I for one don’t want to do. Honestly, you had such a good, honest app, and I feel like a load of greedy pricks in a board meeting are making decisions for money purposes, that are destroying the great app this used to be. Please bring back the old app that worked, it’s so sad to see....Version: 5.167.1

Better than Tinder…I like this app way better than Tinder, but that’s a pretty low bar to beat. Good luck trying to get in touch with anyone from their support team. I’ve been waiting 5 business days to hear back and I’ve had 0 communication from the company… Dating apps just want your information and money and don’t care about the experience anymore. Good luck everyone!.Version: 5.204.1

Not user friendly and confusingNew design is hideous and not user friendly — I don’t see the full photo — because of new design sometimes the person is completely cropped out before you enlarge the photo. You to click through the photos to get to the personal info (I’m using BFF so don’t care what they look like). It now says I run out of potential matches, yet at the left loo corner it shows there are 27 ppl who swiped right...super odd and inconvenient to use.Version: 5.180.0

Pay to see matchesYou have to pay to people who liked you. As guys we already get 1 match every few months and now we have to pay to see that match lol i wish there was a 0 star rating ✌️.Version: 5.203.0

Ok- but with a fundamental flawWhile it is “empowering” for women to make the first move, this app makes it hard to establish a legitimate relationship. It requires location services to be continually on (this makes me believe Bumble wants to spy on users because it’s not required on other sites) and as a result, you get tons of likes from people who live nowhere near you. I have settings on to match with men within a 90 mile radius, but am inundated with people who are just visiting my city. This is a colossal waste of my time! I don’t want to scroll through hundreds of people who don’t even live in my state and are just looking for a hookup. When I travel, I have to remember to turn off my location so I’m not swarmed with likes from people across the country. This flaw makes Bumble substandard to other sites like Hinge, where a user sets the city he or she lives in and chooses a radius. At least on Hinge I can view matches and have conversations and dates with local people. If Bumble wants to be known as more than a hookup app, this needs to change. I’m not a fan of allowing an app constant access to my location, and the time wasted scrolling through visitors is making me want to delete it very soon. Fix this flaw, Bumble, and women will stick around longer. While some women may be fine with finding hookups, many are not. If this app really wants to empower women then give us the choice to opt out of such nonsense. We’re too busy!.Version: 5.150.0

Functional but just doesn’t workThe problem with Bumble is the idea is great but it practice it doesn’t work. Women have to make the first move abs say hi. But here is the snag - women get a vast amount more likes than guys. They have to scroll through likes and your like is down the pile and probably doesn’t even get noticed. So that fact that you have liked someone means nothing and it is highly unlikely they will like you back. I have a good profile and I’m told a good looking guy but all the likes I have had from bumble have been girls who have been swiping. There is the next snag - unless you pay silly money per month you can see what those girls look like. Therefore you are trapped in a perpetual loop where essentially you pay for nothing. It is also really glitchy and apparently I have run out of potential profiles in a 80 mile radius - yeah right?! Stick with Tinder!.Version: 5.195.0

Can’t log inId love to tell you how the app is going but i cant since i haven’t been able to use it. I put my number and password in and it just takes me to a loading screen until it eventually goes back to the login page. I don’t want to create another account using facebook and i cant create another one with my number already used. I cant even delete my account without being logged in, and i don’t like that my face is on a platform without my control. Ive seen many complaints the same as mine and I’m surprised it hasn’t been fixed. Disappointing honestly..Version: 2.35.0

Quality has gone WAY down.I started using bumble in 2018, and always liked that the profiles were detailed, and that women messaged first. What I recently noticed about the app is that it has completely transformed into a hookup app. Most of the people on there have their profile set to “not sure yet” when asked what they’re looking for, and most of the people that have “relationship” on their profile are totally weird. I also dislike that they got rid of the 3 free rewinds & the free rematching, because I looked at my past matches that have run out and was looking to connect with one of them - but I noticed that you can’t rematch for free anymore! It’s so obvious that none of the people using this app want a real relationship - like someone else said, your matches are too busy messaging the 100s of other girls that matched with them. Far too many of the men on here are just bored and need to relieve some boredom, but they should probably find a different hobby. I also recently noticed that I have no more possible people in my area to swipe on, which seems really odd because I don’t swipe right too often. How can I use the app if it says that there are no more bees in my area?!? Really considering deleting the app at this point, it’s just gotten poorer in quality..Version: 5.173.0

Poor customer serviceI had an issue with my account because it was deleted by a coworker who had gotten access to my phone and then they proceeded to create a new one in complete opposite tastes to what I like (first was seen as a heterosexual account, male pursuing female, however the second was a homosexual account with male pursuit male). So I sent an email to the customer service team. Just asking if they could revert the account to before it was deleted. And no response had been given for a few days. Sent another email asking if their would be a response, and no. Their was no physical response. But they did decide to go in and block my account with the reasoning “Your account has been blocked due to multiple people reporting you”. At this point I send another email asking if it was because of real people reporting me, if so, what did I do? Or if it was me, could they just let me recreate the account and be done with it. Fast forward 2 weeks with no response and I send a last email saying I will tell my story. Oh and by the way, I’ve paid to use the app for a short period of time so you would think they would care at least to give any type of at least genetically automated response given how big of a company they are. But no. Just ignores everything and blocks people at slightest issues..Version: 5.177.0

New Changes Take Away User ControlI took a break from Bumble earlier this year and last night I signed in and reactivated my profile. First, before expressing what REALLY bothered me about the new update, I want to say I was disappointed in the new layout as I think men prefer something less fussy and less complicated, so the theatrics of the new layout could be a turn off or have them engaging less. Heck, even I think it’s overkill! But what REALLY disappointed me was that the developers took away two key features: shaking to undo a left swipe AND - MORE IMPORTANTLY - the ability to block any profile without reasons of abuse or harassment. If I see an ex-boyfriend, his brother/other relative, his best friend OR I see my neighbor, co-worker - really ANYONE that I just don’t want knowing my business or that I am trying to date...well, I should be able to block profiles for any reason. While abuse/harassment is of paramount concern SO IS PRIVACY. And I don’t want/need the guy I dated last Summer and it just didn’t work out, to know I’m back in the dating game. It was a great feature (along with the ability to undo a left swipe) and it’s the change of these two features that made me immediately hide my profile and say, ‘No thanks, Bumble’..Version: 3.4.0

Don’t dare lose weight while using bumble!Hey everyone, I recently lost 125 pounds and now my Bumble pictures don’t look like my verification picture because, you guessed it, losing 125 pounds makes you look a very different. Apparently the moderators at Bumble can’t understand this very simple fact and their trash customer service is only capable of sending copy pasted generic email responses or flat out banning you. I WAS BANNED FOR LOSING WEIGHT LMAO Use at your own risk. Pierre.Version: 5.170.0

Tinder liteTook a break from this, then came back and apparently there was an update limiting swipes and requiring subscriptions to backtrack. They have basically copied tinder but not as user friendly and far fewer users. There are good things about bumble, but overall really disappointing, hope it changes back if I ever use it again..Version: 5.167.1

Fixing what’s not brokenI’ve used bumble for about 2 years now and have even managed to meet one of my ex girlfriends on there. Additionally, I think the fundamental aspect of having the woman strike up conversation first is a HUGE bonus, when you consider how unlikely it is for them to do so on other apps. HOWEVER, the company is going in a greedy direction, starting with two significant features: the amount of swipes and the reverse button (if you accidentally swiped left). In the last 6 months or so Bumble has significantly reduced your amount of swipes, which is of course a far more important issue for your average man than woman. Most of these other apps that I’ve used employ this feature of limited swipes, but Bumble used to give you so many more swipes (it might’ve been unlimited) nowadays I‘ll swipe on like 25 people before running out and having to wait a day? My matches have significantly dropped and it’s almost pointless to have this app because it’s just like all the other ones now. The aforementioned features are what made it different (and better!), but it seems like they want you to pay for them now, which is understandable (paying more for more services) but how does it differentiate from the myriad of other apps that have saturated the market? I don’t know. Personally, it’s not enough of an incentive to keep this spacious app on my phone..Version: 5.165.0

Anti women sexist rules of deleting accountsMy account has been deleted several times no doubt because I spoke my mind against sexist men. Bumble has many men on here who are from other countries and are tourists or on business in Dublin Ireland. I tell these men that I’m not a tour guide or here for hookups and that I’m here for a meaningful relationship. Yet I’ve no doubt these men take offence to that, report my account and I get deleted. Therefore bumble is totally sexist and not so different to Tinder in that you do not protect when women are standing up for themselves and you delete us from your platform because some man was not happy with us not rejecting him. There is no reason given when a person is deleted and there should be an exact reason or at least option to return if it was minor. Do you think it’s right to ban women for life from bumble? Why not give the option to regain my account ? Also I have made a formal complaint that you rely on Facebook to have an account and again a crazy ex boyfriend of mine got my Facebook account disabled. Should I be banned from online dating because I don’t have a Facebook. I cannot stress enough how anti women bumble is because you do not allow women to stand up for themselves against the Harvey Weinstein’s of the world - we are seen as rude if we do.Version: 5.133.0

Would highly not recommendI’m 26 and have had many experiences with dating apps/sites over the years, including Bumble and I think that people should stay well clear of them. People portray who they want to be on these online sites, they create a character and not everybody is who they say they are; there’s still plenty of fake profiles using all these apps and even the ‘real’ profiles are actual people but aren’t who you think they are. My most recent experience on Bumble was horrendous, I met a guy, thought I had found my one to be honest and was seeing him for a few months... oh how wrong I was! he was completely sociopathic and with serious issues including drugs. Dating apps are just a complete waste of time. I’m not bad mouthing this apps just because of my dreadful experiences but also because most of my female relatives and friends have gone through the exact same thing. It’s not a one off, it’s sadly happening all the time..Version: 2.35.0

Controlled behind your backYou can swipe all you want but bumble controls everything behind the scenes and either blocks you or you’ll never match. Even when a person swipes right on you back as they are a friend you somehow won’t match?! Fake app, just out there to rip people off..Version: 5.174.0

Paid serviceThe app is great we all know how these kinds of apps work. In my option Bumble is more of a relationship kind of app compared to tinder which is why I prefer it. However when you pay for tinder you get a lot more bang for your buck. Bumble needs to include free boosts (only 1 a month) for paying customers. I feel this will not only make people want to pay including myself but also bring more people to the app knowing they can have that little boost when things aren’t going their way..Version: 3.25.0

AppI spent a lot of time checking apps and I have to say this is so far quiet impressive but it has let me down with the traveling option which is good but it’s expensive especially when your paying for a subscription it would be appreciated that this option should be free and have the ability to have spotlights moving forward if you have a standard premium it would make sense to pay seperate but if paying an amount then you pay for spot lights it works out far more expensive and it seems it’s just easier walking outside and getting to know people I’d give this app a 5 star has there been a easy cheaper option and there was changes firstly being able to message people would be an option like maybe send them a private message but only if your a member to bumble if your not then you can’t if your a member then you should have a private message option Travel mode Maybe the spot lights could be brought seperatly then if these things were to be added but at a reduced cost maybe do £10- for 6 spot lights it might make people think about spending more.Version: 5.185.0

Tinder, but somehow buggier!The actual women’s empowerment concept is excellent - especially if you’re a guy like me who hates initiating the conversation. But as far as I can see, it’s one of the few differences between this and Tinder. Okay, there are fewer trout pouts I suppose. But then the bugs. We’re not talking little ones either - inexcusable feature-breaking bugs! To list just the crackers: - The “profile prompts” (little boxes designed to highlight personality points) cannot be deleted - only changed! There is no option to delete them! - When using the web app and phone app interchangeably, the phone app will not be aware of the swipes you made on the web app (even after 4 hours have elapsed, and the app has been closed/reopened). While I suppose this means you get a second chance to swipe, realistically it just means you have to slog through lots of swipes again til you reach new users! - The swipe mechanism seems a bit sensitive - on a few occasions I’ve accidentally swiped left or right while scrolling up All-in-all, as long as you’re not paying for it, I can somewhat recommend the app, but get ready for some frustrations! With no way to report them, of course!.Version: 5.186.0

Ladies message first is not working!!! #CHANGEI tried bumble several times and I am finding a pattern. A lot of men on here are using bumble to gather women to hook-up with. They upload great pics and profiles and sit back and watch the messages pour in from women because we are the only one who can initiate contact ... So, the good looking guys just sit back and have their choice of woman to prey on for sexual encounters. So very little men on here actually want relationships. Oh and if half don’t reply to your message ladies it’s because their working through the 100s of messages from all us other ladies ....BUMBLE makes men lazy and their being spoiled rotten with attention cause we are ALL knocking at their doors... CONCEPT was empowering at first but has backfired... a lot of men has used this only to their advantage! There are a very small percentage of actually guys navigating with hearts looking for a relationship but I think that’s in any dating app BUT bumble has become the go to for decent looking guys to have their pick of women to get laid ... bumble has made it easy for them too! PLEASE change the women message first thing to a feature on whether a woman wants to accept a message from a guy ... make both sexes message.... EMPOWER the women again with a FEATURE that women can use to chose to unlock or view the message from the guy!!!! BUMBLE I had hope in you! Change up the feature ! It’s only benefiting the dudes now believe me !!!.Version: 5.142.0

Avoid bumble boost it is questionableI first downloaded bumble earlier this year, within 2 weeks I matched with someone and eventually deleted the app when we started dated. Fast forward to now I downloaded bumble again as the previous dates did not materialise past dates. Hoping for good luck I matched with 2 guys sent them both messages but then they timed out. I was then offered a free trial of boost which I accepted. I was excited about the prospect because I knew who liked my profile & therefore I was able to send them messages. Out of the 15 (possibly more) guys that I sent messages to only one responded, everyone else timed out. Even the guy that message did not respond for a few days after 🤦🏾‍♀️ To add insult to injury because I didn’t unsubscribe 24 hours prior to my free trial ending I got billed £42 for a stupid subscription that I no longer wanted. I think boost is a waste of time and there are probably a bunch of fake profiles cat fishing u into believing that lots of people have liked your profile. I find it hard to believe that someone looking to date would like your profile but then time out when a message is sent to them! I’m not happy! Jamz.Version: 5.137.0

Good appFound it fairly easy to navigate however needs to allow functions of enlarging font or text size and ability to de select matches if you swipe right instead of left in error. Like the fact no unsolicited pictures can be sent. Refreshing to see an app to give women a chance to find friends etc without hassle. The text size issue is off putting hope they fix it soon as makes it hard for those with eyesight issues to read. All in all a good app.Version: 3.35.0

Too many notifications.Hey guys- consider either cutting the push notifications wayyyyy down, or letting us have a choice on which we want to receive! All these cheesy notifications are overkill. I’d rather just get notifications 1. When I have a match and 2. When I have a new msg. That’s it. Eliminate the rest! Otherwise fun app.Version: 2.17.0

Bumble BFF is a hit and missSo I’ve been on Bumble BFF for a year and a bit, and I’ve met some wonderful girls and also made some friends for life. However, it’s annoying, not everyone on their is genuine, not everyone on their is on there for the right reasons, you don’t always get responses or you do and they never reply for a while, or you match with someone or quite a few but nothing comes off it! It’s like the time I met those bunch of girls was probably the perfect time because after that, it was really slow and barely any action or interaction from the app in general. I think bumble needs to be real about the experience and explain that it’s not 100% amazing. It is a bit like having that app on your phone that you click in from time to time, slightly useless existence. I would say if you have time on your hands and your not really focused on it or not bothered then it would probably suit your needs. I have deleted the app on a few occasions and the installed it again purely because I had met a few girls so thought it might not be bad and might be a better experience but it wasn’t like that at all..Version: 3.36.0

Misleading Notifications, Defective SwipingIn terms of people on the app, Bumble is pretty decent. You have the ability to filter to only verified profiles which is nice. However, Bumble notifications are what annoy me the most. Why send a notification if you don’t have a like or a match? Some notifications are so misleading and it’s just about getting people back on the platform and back on their phones. It’s about business as usual, trying to keep you on the app for as long as possible while not getting you a match. I get that this is the model that all dating apps function on but at least try to make it less obvious. People who are motivated to find someone don’t need a reminder to go on a dating app. They just need to know when they get a match or a like. That’s it. Concerning the swiping mechanism, I can’t tell you how often I’ve swiped right or left by accident while trying to scroll down on a profile. I would suggest changing the sensitivity of the swipes or using buttons instead like Hinge. Also something that goes for all dating apps, not just Bumble. Spotlight should be active for at least 6h, not 1h. I’m glad Bumble gives you 1 free Spotlight a week, but come on, one hour is not enough for the price you would pay if you bought one..Version: 5.195.0

Value for money :(Objectively, I don’t believe subscription reflects value for money in a week. I speak on behalf of many. Think bumble sales would improve if price was lower then more uptake so higher volume throughput/overall revenue. Bumble become go to app/ No1 etc. Capillary mindset is holding this app back lead with greed. 8gbp a week seems a lot when it takes a few weeks or month to find someone. 8gbp per month more reasonable. Concept of selling love as a commodity seems highly unethical. Not sure this will heeded, does anyone actually act on return of experience from feedback ratings? Simple fair points here not rocket science business philosophy. Further to this, do you actually want feedback when the nickname-idea seems burden some after upto 10 attempts to leave but all names are taken. Surely better way to do this so users do it first time not have to create a cryptic name..Version: 5.120.0

What’s with the lack of notifications?It would easily get a 5 star if it wasn’t for the shoddy lack of notifications. You either receive none at all - even when you have messages spanning several hours back, or you’ll finally get a notification once you have several messages from different people and it’s STILL delayed. I have missed “matches” a bunch of times because I never got the notification for them. Many of the people I have matched with and talked to have the same complaints and we’re constantly apologising back and forth for the lack of knowledge of our messages being sent. Your Instagram link also takes ages to update the new content that you’ve posted, but that’s minor. I’ll be damned if you expect me to put money into an app that doesn’t effectively work..Version: 5.196.0

Used to be good but where has everyone gone?I don’t know what’s happened to bumble. I went from getting weekly matches and dates to almost nothing. and when I get a match, they don’t reply. This has been going on for the last 3 months. I even paid for the upgraded version, what a waste of $20. All it did was get me more matches who don’t reply. $20 a week is an absolute rip off for “boost” - it’s hard enough to date as it is, and you’re now making it expensive as well as hard. I guess everyone’s either stopped dating or they’ve moved onto other apps..Version: 5.166.1

MYSOGYNISTIC ABUSIVE FRAUDULENTI MADE A NEW ACCOUNT AS I HAVE BEEN BLOCKED FOR FRAUDULENT REASON WITHOUT EVIDENCE. ONE TIME I USED BUMBLE BIZZ. ONE TIME. AND IT WAS TO REHOME A PET. I HAVE SOCIAL ANXIETY DISORDER AND CANT MAKE FRIENDS LIKE MOST PEOPLE, I ACCIDENTALLY USED BUMBLE BIZZ AS MARKET PLACE ONE TIME- AND THEY KEEP BLOCKING MY ACCOUNT AND ANY ATTEMPTS TO MAKE ANOTHER ONE, WITHOUT EVIDENCE OTHER THAN THE SAME FRAUDULENT EXCUSE. WASTE OF MY TIME. HOW IS ANY OF THAT INAPPROPRIATE EVEN. THIS IS ABUSE OF MY HUMAN RIGHTS AND INTERNAL SLANDER. WHO THE HELL IS IN CHARGE OF THIS DISHONEST APP I WANT A NAME AND NUMBER BECAUSE MY MENTAL AND PHYSICAL HEALTH ARE BOTH NOW BEING NEGATIVELY AFFECTED BY YOUR ABUSIVE AND FRAUDULENT SO CALLED “feminist” APP.Version: 5.201.0

Worst app even after premiumTinder better then this Even you paid the money for It, you will not get any matches.. just worst app I am telling you!! I paid the premium on tinder and I am having so many matches. Bumble premium is expensive n still you ll not get any matches!! On tinder you’ll get supper likes to get your liked ones attention but there is nothing in here, just a money making app !! If there is option for 0 star I would give the 0 to this dumb bumble..Version: 5.189.0

Good bad & uglyNice idea like the idea of empowering women so it’s there choice as they make the first move, Great concept, dislikes lack of users and matches but that’ll be down to me, can’t seem to find how to adjust settings for a match distance and age but happy with the Cali we I received it’s just I’ve ran out of people to swipe left or right. Huge disappoint for me was the First Lady I was chatting with and getting along great and suddenly her account appears to have been deleted as if by the app developer rather than the user don’t know why and she doesn’t seemed to have started a new account . The biggest positive so far is the user interface and access profiles is excellent and there doesn’t seem to be the desire to make the app a cash cow charging to msg people so liking them at very much..Version: 5.148.0

Awful after new update Aug 2020The new update is AWFUL. Please switch back to the old version. It was so much better to be able to swipe through the profile instead of have to click through each picture. And on top of that, now my photos don’t even fit well into the profile because they are so close up and they cut part of me off in some of them. And whyyyy would you make the photos fade out to black on the edges!? It make all photos look dark! You also got ride of saying which city they were in and now just use km, knowing where they were located right now was so helpful. I literally hate everything you’ve updated to the interface.Version: 5.176.0

Got my account taken down for no reasonI’d only had my account for a day and I received an email that my account was against the guidelines, I read the guidelines and nothing about my account was against them. There is zero appeal process for this deletion as well and I can’t find a single way to directly contact bumble about this issue. My profile was exactly the same as my tinder (minus mirror selfies as they are banned which is so dumb in and of itself) which I have had for months with zero issues, I’m gonna stick with tinder as this is terrible customer service and so unnecessary..Version: 5.191.0

BotsAbsolutely garbage. Waste of time & money.Version: 5.203.0

Worst app and customer service!I downloaded the app recently and had to pay for premium membership to be able to use the app in the first place! Something not mentioned in the app’s description. Within 30 minutes of using the app and trying to navigate through its features and very very limited matches, I realised that the app wasn’t for me and decided to cancel my subscription/ delete my account. I was informed by customer service that ‘per the T&Cs’ I wasn’t eligible for a refund and will continue to have access until the renewal date. I then attempted on several occasions to access the app and it’s now not loading and seems to be stuck on the home page! No reply from customer service yet, who keep directing me to the help guide, which I can’t access as I can’t log onto the app! It’s ridiculous that I’ve paid for such a poor service. Will definitely not recommend this app!!.Version: 5.196.0

Be good if I could get some matches!I’ve been on Bumble on about 3-4 weeks now and had 2 matches overall. I filled out my profile to make it engaging and hopefully not cheesy but just following suggestions on what to do to boost your chances. I spoke to Bumble’s online team and they said there wasn’t a problem with my profile and all my filters are best suited to get a match so they put 4 spotlights in my account (which supposedly boosts 16x your profile to people near for 30 minutes). I did some research what is the best time to use them and did it. Still no matches... Seriously! What a way to put my confidence at an all time low. So I guess if there isn’t anything wrong with my profile, then I guess it’s me 😐 I don’t really use online dating apps as I feel a bit of that chemistry is lost but being in lockdown I’d thought I would give it a try and boy that was a mistake. I’m just peppered with notifications telling me to keep swiping and just giving that false hope..Version: 5.207.0

DisappointedBlocked me without warning one day, and I have no idea why. I only used BFF, and was only on there for friendships, certainly not to spam or solicit as I was accused of. So many people I met were networking for MLMs, and yet even though I was looking for genuine friendships, I was cut off. So disappointing. Apparently I can appeal in three months, but it’s humiliating enough to be blocked and accused that I don’t want to go through that again. I don’t want anything to do with them, even though would love to connect in community and it was such a great thing for these isolating times. Be careful. Don’t compose messages on an iPad, and don’t share any links whatsoever, even if it’s in normal conversation, and not for soliciting or business reasons. I don’t think you can friend people on Facebook or Instagram from there either? I’m still not sure what they flagged in my messages, and am still shocked and hurt. I never would’ve thought I’d be accused... Their admins are automatic, and they don’t give second chances. I won’t recommend them anymore, or go through that again. :(.Version: 5.205.0

Completely destroyed my confidenceThanks bumble, I setup a great profile, funny descriptions, full info and really good pics of myself, And I got no results at all. I’m not a bad looking guy, I’m really not sure at what level I am but I’m definitely not ugly, yet this doesn’t seem to matter anyway. Oh and sorry to 90% of men, women have the option to ‘filter’ the height of guys, which is even worse than tinder because now all the shallow, spoilt, entitled thots just instantly remove most guys from their swipes so they can match with sugar daddy 7Ft Ultra Chad. Then Bumble have to go and put a paywall over any remaining chance of matching with even 1 decent girl who doesn’t look like she eats McDonald’s daily. At least tinder gives me a rare match, there just aren’t that many girls on bumble because of the extremely specific requirements certain groups can use to swipe guys for. It’s easier to find a good paying job than a girlfriend in 2020. Good luck guys!.Version: 5.179.0

A Feminist dating site or one that evens the balance !I’ve been using Bumble date for a few days and found it a tad confusing for the first hour or so but soon got the hang of it. Faults or not is the question, photos can’t be cropped on the app ( of course you can do it before) so do you get more true likenesses ! Guys can’t message until they receive a message and you will only get one if you ‘like’ each other . You therefore either have to ‘swipe ‘ right on everyone or pay to see who likes you ! These likes are also time ltd 😱Profile messages are limited on space and pro-forma answers are somewhat limited , such as drinking I don’t drink often, once a month but that’s not social drinking in my book so I have to say I don’t drink ( could someone thus think I might be in AA😳). That said the quality of the members ( the females ) is very high, . Provided the profiles are real ( many sites use fake profiles ) I’ve been impressed by the standards of photos, profiles , education levels . Maybe it’s due to the ladies been more in control so I guess us guys can’t have it both ways . The key is patience chaps . A quality most don’t have so maybe you can win the heart of a lady and learn patience too 😳🤪.Version: 5.153.0

Good in way yet...Based on today (12 Jan 2021), bumble’s gimmick / imagery like Hollywood in its many manifestations is selling the idea that the only mixed race dichotomy worth anyone’s time is white and black (usually a sophisticated black man and a white woman, sophistication being the man’s signifier which speaks of class interests etc, interesting how you never see a drab black man, and whiteness in itself, all that is needed some would say, being hers). This is problematic and fairly sinister as these supposed prominent successes (an advertiser’s wet dream really as they are able to sell their product with the implicit Tagline being that their product has managed to quell society’s great ill — racism!) mask structural everyday real inequalities as it bounds us to very limited social parameters ....Apart from that Bumble’s alright I guess!.Version: 5.197.0

Tinder remixThe bumble app was great 2 years ago when you had unlimited swipes (I deleted tinder instantly) & had loads of fun on bumble till I met someone and left, then I returned this year and this app is all about money now. Just like Tinder. You want more swipes in a day pay $169.99 You want spotlight pay $29.99. You want to see your matches pay $50.99. You want to breathe ? pay $1000.99. Gtfoh..Version: 5.198.1

It’s okayThe layout and design of this apps pretty awesome, but i just have a few problems with how it operates. as a woman with mental health issues, messaging first can make my anxiety spike, getting constant notifications that i HAVE to do something (or message someone) triggers my depression and adhd (the lazy side of them), and all that. messaging first doesn’t really help keep the creeps away if you message everyone you match with. it’s also kinda weird that “friend mode” is the same gender as you, ONLY, as if men and women can’t be friends. 24 hours also isn’t long enough. i can work up to 13 hours in a day, then do the same the next day. i don’t always have time, bumble just feels like it requires constant attention and upkeep. sometimes i also just dont have reception, if im camping, i cant exactly message my matches, so i lose the chance to connect with someone. i get what they’re trying to do, but it should be optional..Version: 5.203.0

FlawedOnly woman can message you with a 24hr period. If they aren’t on, go on vacation or unable to get in touch at all you’ve missed your chance. Extend t. Time to a week. Alsoyour review page is blank when I type. Get gud.Version: 5.177.0

Not impressedDon’t pay for premium! A waste of money and less matches that on free. All those secret admirers blurred out where from a long way away and not one replied to my messages. Out of date profiles? I don’t know but no new likes since going premium. Seems pretty suss to me. Even worse my last review did not even get published. Hmmm 🤔.Version: 5.200.0

Sexism at its finestProbably The most sexist dating or friend finding app available. If an app was open this way but in reverse for males having the all the power we would hear nothing but complaints and if not lawsuits. It is disgusting that in this modern day this sort of sexism is acceptable. No doubt a number of people will make the return comment of if you don’t like it then leave it well that goes the same in reverse for you but women that are complaining. Seems if you have it your way you’re happy Yes this is exactly what sexism is..Version: 3.29.0

New update sucksPeople in my beeline don’t even show up in my pool anymore, after at least hundreds is swipes. This app used to be much better where people in the beeline were of the first few swipes, but now you have to pay to see them. Complete trash of an app now..Version: 5.187.0

BumblePurchased app. Created my profile. Set my parameters. Swiped as per instructions. For the last 3 days I have had the message ‘looks like you’re out of people’ nothing else AT ALL. I have purchased Bumble Coins and Bumble Boost Active, no difference at all either..Version: 2.23.0

Not bad, but needs workThis app is good for meeting new people, however, it’s kinda unfair to use. What I mean by this is that if you end up liking someone or someone (or that person) likes you, in order for you to see who that is or for it to be an official match, you must pay $18 just to see who they are that liked you, which is really unnecessary and expensive if all you’re trying to do is meet someone, and god forbid it’s someone you don’t find interesting or doesn’t match your personality, then you’d end up just blowing $18 for no reason when the whole point was just to meet someone YOU thought was perfect for you. And on top of that, the women have to make the first move (which isn’t necessarily a bad thing), but some don’t make a move at all after matching (from what I experienced). So it then makes it unclear as to whether they even meant to do that in the first place or not, and since I (a male) can’t say anything first, I’m just left in the dark as to why I haven’t heard from anyone cause I can’t say anything to confirm if she’s willing to meet. Im not trying to complain or say it’s a bad app or anything cause it actually does what it’s supposed to do, but I’m just pointing out the flaws of paying an expensive price just to see who swiped you and whether it was worth the money or not and also pointing out the communication issues between people..Version: 5.200.0

Something is bad with appThere is something wrong with this app. One I never get any likes whatsoever. I’ve had the app nearly 2-3 years. No matter how many people seem to be in my area of search. I never get a like. I even thought maybe I’m being to picky. So tried just swiping right on everyone and seeing just maybe I’m missing some likes. But nope. For two weeks I swiped right on every person. And not one like back. So it’s either I’m not doing a good profile maybe. But the only thing I could think it to be would be that my profile is not actually being put in to other people’s searches when they are looking in the area. I don’t have premium and won’t be forced to pay for something I shouldn’t require. But the algorithm on this app is clearly removing or not showing my profile to anyone at all. My friend who did have premium would get a few likes or matches each month. So it clearly shows something is a miss..Version: 5.202.0

App lies to your faceThe app literally gave me a notification saying someone liked me and of course i check and theres no like. Done that more than once.Version: 5.208.0

UpdateBumble has told me it is updating. Out with the old in with the new but is not working! I was chatting to someone on there and now can’t even get into the app. Please help.Version: 3.31.0

Scammy ways to get you to payThis app is dodgy just like similar free alternatives, you see for girls they are bound to get x100 more matches thats not the argument here, here is the real issue, first week of use i got 3 matches, after that i used the app for 3 months daily swipping yes on almost everyone. 0 matches in all that time. So my conclusion is that they show newly signed up users more often to increase chances of a match at the beginning days of signup, than your pushed down to the bottom unless you pay for premium version.. also not to mention the double standards for girls who start with “hey” but if a guy does it its an automatic block or ignore..Version: 5.207.0

MehSo many woman just using this for Instagram followers.Version: 5.196.0
