Rumblr: The Fighting App That Is '100% Serious'

Rumblr is a pending app idea in the same vein as Tinder, but instead of trying to connect your heart with another person, the purpose of this app is to connect your fists.

The premise of the app is for recreational fighters to find, meet and fight other brawl enthusiasts nearby. Users can initiate fights, and much like how Tinder suggests pick-up lines to begin a conversation, this app suggests insults you can hurl at your match to create some tension. For instance, “tell your match what you don’t like about their picture.”

The idea sounds odd, but it’s “100% serious” and soon to launch, says the app’s founders.

“We have raised relatively substantial funding from private American investors and the app is fully developed,” Rumblr reps told the Daily News.

The brawl’s location and time are also broadcast publicly, this way other users of the app can watch the fight unfold. Rumblr includes an interactive map to locate fights happening around the area, as well as filter systems such as “RumblrHER” and “RumblrGROUP,” to find female fights or group fights.

The first 2,000 people to register for Rumblr received beta invites to the app. Allegedly, there have been more than 78,000 sign ups, and the first ten people to tweet about the app will supposedly receive a pair of golden brass knuckles.

The Rumblr team was working with the iOS store to finalize legal issues preventing the app’s approval. The app is not available at this time.
