The hugely popular dating app Bumble is adding a feature to help you in everyday life

Have you tried it? Yeah OK, we believe you...

When you think of dating apps, Tinder is probably the first one that creeps into your head.

But Tinder now has a contender to the throne of the most popular dating app, and it's called Bumble.

The app was set up at the end of 2014 and has exploded in popularity in Ireland over the past 12-18 months.

It's not all that different to Tinder in a lot of ways, you swipe left or right, if you both like each others' profile then you get a match. You've then 24 hours to make contact otherwise the match will expire.

BUT,  here's the one crucial difference. The onus is on the woman to send the first message. Women have to send the first message to their male matches if they want to initiate a conversation.

Aside from helping people meet up and make new... friends. The app has launched a new business networking feature to the app called Bumble Bizz.

It launched in the US, UK, Germany, France and Canada this week.

Bizz profiles let users add verified photos, digital resumes, a skills section and examples of their work to their profile.

However, rather than being a place for finding new jobs, Bumble insists it's intended for networking and mentoring only.

So if you're searching for a job, it may not help you in the long run, but it's certainly an interesting addition to the app.
