Bumble connects you to people around you. After two people mutually opt in by swiping right, they're added to each other's 'hive' of connections. The woman has to say something first within 24 hours or the connection disappears forever. For same sex connections, or friendships, either person has to make a move within 24 hours before that connection disappears. What if you run out of time? Don't worry! Each person can extend one connection a day for an additional 24 hours. Bee social!see more...

Since it's girls talking to girls, anyone can initiate the conversation, which is the key difference between Bumble and Tinder. So with that out of the factors, it's literally the same experience as Tinder, and there were a lot of people that I found had profiles on both Bumble and Tinder - I had both as well.
I had it just in case there was anyone who didn't have a Tinder, but I didn't overall find it useful for me - probably could have just stuck with
I am shy, introverted, and disabled. That is a disastrous combination for making friends. With Bumble BFF, I can talk with other women looking to make friends, too. This feature is wonderful, and I've begun the process of developing my squad. "But you only gave it three stars!" Yes, because you can only find friends that are the same gender that you are.
I've always been friends with more guys, than girls, and so for me to be pigeon holed into only finding friends who are also female, is a drag. I would love to find guys who are also looking for friends. I get that this creates a potential dating scenario, as guys could say they wanted friends, and pursue more, but it would be easy enough to say thank you but I'm not looking for that. Then you just move on. If Bumble updates the BFF feature so that I can find both male and female friends, they'll get more stars. As for the dating application for this app, though, one star, for sure. It's just a more socially acceptable form of Tinder. Let's be real!
When going through potential matches, you get the same few matches every time, including the ones you reject, whether you go through the list every few days or every few weeks. It kind of feels like your responses to your matches doesn't matter much because even if you swipe 'no' on a photo, it'll be back the next time you log on.
When you factor in that you can't do much in the app, including view those who have swiped 'yes' on you, unless you get a premium subscription, its rather useless if you want to continue with the free version. So you'll be able to see who fits whatever criteria you have, but any interaction with them will be limited at best until you upgrade your subscription.
