Bumble is a free location-based dating app that uses a swiping format similar to Tinder. This means for 30 minutes, your profile will be one of the first shown to anyone who logs on. It's the same basic premise as a boost on Tinder. Only women can send the very first message, putting them in control of starting the conversation. That's why you'll sometimes see it referred to as a feminist dating app.

Bumble - Date, Meet, Network Better
Bumble is a dating app that was launched in by a former Tinder executive. While the app's approach is conventional enough that it will feel familiar to users of other dating apps, Bumble has a few unique features. For example, if a man and woman both "swipe right" on each other's profiles, only the woman can send the first message. Bumble also has several modes: You can choose dating, BFF for finding platonic friends , and Bizz for career networking. After uploading at least one photo and creating a profile, you can swipe right to indicate interest in another person. If that person also swipes right in a heterosexual pairing, the woman must make the first move.
