- The Washington Times - Monday, November 9, 2015

A new app that encourages users to meet up and fight is starting its beta trial Monday.

“Rumblr” is a pending app modeled after the dating and hookup site Tinder, but instead of meeting strangers to share a drink or tryst, users meet up to rumble.

“We have raised relatively substantial funding from private American investors and the app is fully developed,” the Rumblr team told the New York Daily News in an email.

The beta for the app is set to launch Monday at 5 p.m. EST, the team said.

“Rumblr is an app for recreational fighters to find, meet, and fight other brawl enthusiasts nearby,” according to the app’s website. “You don’t need to fight to use Rumblr. With Rumblr Explore, anyone can browse and attend fights close by that other Rumblr users have arranged — all for free!”

The app comes with a chat feature for trash talking and an interactive map. It also has a filter system, with “RumblrHER” to find female fights, and “RumblrGROUP” for group fights, the Daily News reported.

The app is not available yet, but the website said it’s “coming soon on the App Store.” The team was directly working with the iOS store to hash out legal issues preventing Rumblr’s approval, they told the Daily News.

More than 78,000 people have signed up for beta access, the Daily News reported.
