Tinder Gets Challenged by A New App: Bumble

And it’s challenged by Tinder’s former employees!

The team behind this new app, in fact, are the very first employees of Tinder. Bumble is designed to be directly a rival for the famous dating and match-making app, Tinder.

According to the app’s Facebook Page, the mobile service will be a more trustable and respect-worthy application. Bumble also promises that the users will never receive unwanted messages.

Well, the app seems very similar to Tinder. What is the difference?


On Bumble, you can add work and education details on your profile, with more information like the year of graduation. Even that little detail helps Bumble position itself in a different place than Tinder, and makes the space for a new kind of audience.

It seems that Bumble will not be only a design-based application, but its functionality will bring many changes to the arena of social dating.

London-based Bumble is expected to be launched in the app stores in early 2015. We’ll keep you updated!
