Ratings and Reviews
Good but not without issues
I've been using CMB and a few other dating apps for a while and I personally like this app the best. I like that the app encourages you to fill out meaningful information about yourself (if the person obliges) and generally result in more genuine interactions with matches. I also like that you can personalize your bagel search to fit your preferences. Although you can pay for additional features, the app is still usable and effective with the basic free functionalities unlike some other apps.
As for issues, in the past few months, it seems like the app has gotten a lot more buggy (i.e., the bagel wouldn't load, app freezing). I'm personally not a fan of the app removing the history feature. Even if some people aren't a fan of the feature, I feel like it should be an option for whether you want to get rid of it or not; otherwise, it feels like a feature was just removed without additional benefit. Perhaps a compromise would be good in which you can see a limited history, so you can at least see who you like today or share the bagel with a friend who you think would be a potential good match. Although I haven't met my special person yet, overall I still think this is still the best dating app but I think it could be better if some issues were addressed.
The bagels are a gambling system
I already noticed that this app will calculate who gets liked more often and put them in the bagel section instead of the daily free rotation. I'm fine with that, it's business. But after buying extra bagels multiple times on top of my subscription I thought how am I going to know if these people will ever see me? Especially when there's naturally more men on dating apps then women, there's more clutter for them to go through. A bagel costs something like $4-$5, a little less with the discount, so it's a gamble to send someone a bagel not knowing AT ALL if they'll even see you. After a month of this I still have zero matches, I feel CMB delays when people see you as long as they see you stop paying for awhile. That's how I met someone on here last year, after a couple months of not paying attention to the notifications I matched with someone I must've like weeks or months ago. I'm just hoping people who paid up at least for awhile can actually get on the higher end of the algorithm, someday.
Response: I understand the app can be used for free, but it's absolutely clear the more attractive choices are on the discover section in which you have to buy bagels to send to people than the daily free rotation of people. I spent money on bagels on multiple occasions never knowing the person I liked will ever see me. I'll also go days without liking a single person on the free rotations. 380 beans for a bagel to send to one person is ridiculous.

The basic version of CMB is totally free! Your curated Suggested Bagels are free to Like, Pass, and Connect with. We'll offer additional Bagels that you can Like for "Beans" or extra features that you can unlock with our in-app currency, but Beans are not required to use the basic features of the app :)
Of All the Apps, CMB Wins
I have tried several apps including Tinder, Bumble, OKCupid, Hinge, and the Inner Circle over the past few years. This year, after a break from dating, my friend recommend CMB. I decided to give it a try because the other apps were either geared towards hookups or the guys wouldn’t make the first move/hold a conversation. There is something about having a limited amount of “matches” and “bagels” that help keep the app intended for its true purpose: dating and not just swiping. I matched with one of my bagels two weeks after getting the app and while I ignored his first message, he reached out again a week later. The conversation was about to expire so he really had to step up his game to get my number. A couple weeks later and we were official. A lot of people around us were surprised at how well matched we were (including myself!). My friends know I’ve done the dating apps for a while so they always ask me for recommendations. I think everyone has an app that suits them but I tell them: if you want genuine connections and guys who aren’t just into the “swiping game”, then CMB would be the app for you.
