Dating, friend-finding, and career-building in one app

Bumble is the first app to bring dating, friend-finding, and career-building into a single social networking platform. It has changed the way people date, find friends, and the perception of meeting online, for the better. Women make the first move.

Bumble is by far my favorite dating app. It's one of the only apps out there that feels fun while still maintaining a sense of safety, composure, and gravitas. The fact that it was created by women fed up by the existing dating app offerings is evident— and they ended up making the better app because of it. Also, I think it's worth mentioning that their bran… See more

The matches were more genuine, the conversations way better, and the twists (compared to other apps) encourage you to actually go out and meet people in real life. Also, it works... I got engaged to an incredible girl in September and that is all thanks to Bumble!

Bumble is launching a "private detector" feature that can automatically detect lewd images and warn users about the photo before they open it. Users can decide if they want to view or block the image or report the image to moderators.

Bumble launched a new feature today called Spotlight that brings a user's profile to the top of people's swipe page for 30 minutes. Users have to pay two Bumble Coins - or $1.99 - to access the feature, and Spotlight doesn't call these users out in-app, so no other user knows why someone is at the top of their profile card stack, not that they normally would… See more

Seems this is picking up traction in the US and is spilling over to the UK. Theres a lot more detail in it, just not enough people for me to know if it's the best. But definitely worth a look-in as its quite different to other dating apps out there

It's a great option if you are trying to meet people literally just down the street. It opens your dating pool to people you may not have met but may have seen at the gym/coffee shop/etc. Also a greta option if traveling and just looking for recommendations (I've used it for that a few times).

It shows you people who you cross paths with on a daily basis -- people who go to the same gym as you, people who have a similar commute. If you both both "heart" each other, you can message through the app.

The idea is that Spottle will end catfishing culture, but can it also avoid unsolicited nudity?
Bustle
When I think of dating in high school, one game springs to mind: spin the bottle. It was the perfect way for painfully shy teens like myself to at least get a peck on the cheek from the person they were otherwise too scared to be within ten feet of....

The company tells Engadget the experimental feature is only available on iOS (sorry, Android-based romantics) in "select" cities like Chicago, New York City and Los Angeles, as well as some international locations. However, it seems like more a question of when this expands than if.
WIRED
It looks like Tinder learned something from the ride-hailing app Uber. The dating company announced Wednesday that it's testing a new feature called Swipe Surge, which sends a push notification when usage is spiking in a specific geographic area. During those periods, Tinder says the odds of finding a match are increased.

The Verge
Tinder is one of the most popular dating apps out there, but it goes through its periods of lulls and highs throughout the day. There's also likely to be more activity during a concentrated event (like a music festival or even the Olympic Games) than on a random November Sunday night.
