Do you want to beat someone up or get beat up yourself? There’s an app for that.
“Rumblr,” a pending app idea, is pitching itself as Tinder, but for brawling. Like the dating app, Rumblr users would meet strangers, but instead of hooking up, they’d be swinging right hooks.
This is real and they have raised the money to prove it.
“We have raised relatively substantial funding from private American investors and the app is fully developed,” the Rumblr team told the Daily News in an email.
The beta version will launch today at 5 p.m. EST, so there is still time to get into the ring with an anonymous internet stranger.
“Rumblr is an app for recreational fighters to find, meet and fight other brawl enthusiasts nearby,” according the app’s website. It encourages users to insult their matched opponents with this pro-tip: “tell your match what you don’t like about their picture.”
What could go wrong?
The app also has a chat feature if you want to talk some smack and an interactive map so users can find other fighters and fights. Members can use filters such as #RumblrHER to find lady fights or #RumblrGROUP to find group fights.
This seems so problematic — oh boy.
Interest is strong in the app.
A sign-up sheet for early access was available, with beta invites being offered to the first 2,000 people who registered. More than 78,000 people have signed up for beta access, an email sent out to the lucky early-bird brawlers showed. The email also claimed to be giving away ten pairs of golden brass knuckles to ten people who tweet about the app.
The app describes itself as a social network, so imagine your Facebook feed come to life on the city streets. Sounds fantastic.
