Singles are being presented with more and more options to help find that special someone. The technology world has helped to bridge that gap with a number of dating apps. Already Tinder and Match.com have helped millions to find love. A new app, Bumble is currently doing the same. Created by Tinder founder Whitney Wolfe, Bumble uses an unique approach to help lead people to their match.
Bumble takes an approach that other dating apps have not. They but females in charge by making them the only ones permitted to send a message to their potential match. After sending a message, the other person then has 24 hours to make a response or the conversation dies. The app itself uses a number of other very unique features including picture messaging and the ability to simply swipe to like or favorite potential matches.
The dating world has embraced Whitney Wolfe’s app with opened arms. As of last year the app reported more than seven million users. More than half of these are women in the age range of 18-25. Reviews for the app have been mostly positive. Bumble has also reported that its users spend more than an hour on the app daily. Bumble has also had more than 800 million matches and 10 billion swipes per mont. These stats have led the app to bing the second most popular Lifestyle app in the App Store.
