We downloaded the Bumble app just to show you what it all looks like
Liv’ED It’s an original style of ED where we write about our personal experiences on experiencing and reviewing any app/place/website that makes us feel like we’re coming back for more.
This pandemic has definitely come unanswered, and now we follow our helpless souls down every known or unknown digital alley in the quest for pleasure and escape from contractions.
In a similar pursuit of some respite from the unease, I hope I snuck into Doremon’s digital pocket equivalent, the Google Play Store, and found an interesting app called Bumblebee (you can find it on the App Store on Apple devices).
So, after downloading the app, when you open it for the very first time, you are asked to sign in either with a mobile number or with your Facebook ID.
Suppose you have logged in with your phone number, then you are prompted to upload a mandatory photo for your profile. You can also add up to 6 photos. Going further, you are asked to fill in a few more details about yourself to complete your profile.
Bumble does all of these tasks itself if you choose to log in with your Facebook ID (using your photos and data available on Facebook).
Now here is the part of Bumble that sets it apart from all other dating apps. At this point, you are given three options regarding your intentions to connect with people on this app.
So, interestingly enough, it not only allows you to meet your prospects Date but also helps you expand your circle of friends across the bff fashion, and connect with like-minded professionals through the biz fashion.
Just before you start exploring the world of Bumble, your preference is asked for the gender of the people you want to meet. You can change it later though.
Here you see countless profiles of people from different walks of life. Whatever profile attracts you to level up, you can swipe right on it and swipe left if you just want to skip it and move on.
Some Other Noteworthy Features
Once a man and a woman sneak up on each other on Bumble’s dating mode, it’s always the women who can make the first move. If she doesn’t start a conversation within 24 hours, the connection automatically expires.
“Bumble was designed to counter problematic and antiquated straight dating standards,” This is what I read on Bumble’s blog about this rule.
But the aforementioned rule does not apply to same-sex matches or connections made in Bumble’s BFF mode. In these cases, either person has 24 hours to initiate a conversation.
You can also add more details about yourself using some advanced filters available on Bumble.
After exploring all the free features of Bumble, a moment comes when you want to do something, but the app won’t let you because that particular feature is in the list of paid features offered by the app.
Paid features include returning to someone you previously swiped to the left of, getting more filters to zoom in on exactly what you want, getting 24 more hours before the chat expires, learning about people who have liked your profile, etc.
There are different packages available, and everyone can choose according to their choice.
If you use the app wisely, you can enjoy it thoroughly, and even the free features can help you download the app. So, that was my first-hand experience on Bumble. Don’t forget to share yours.
