Tinder is suing Bumble after accusing the competing dating app of patent infringement and stealing trade secrets. The lawsuit says Bumble, a female-friendly dating app, is basically identical to Tinder. Tinder is the app that made swiping right to like and swiping left to dislike a popular function.

Tinder claims that Bumble copied the "world-changing, card swipe-based, mutual opt-in premise" of Tinder. The complaint also says Bumble's co-creators are ex-Tinder employees and the app has new features that were, "learned of and developed confidentially while at Tinder."

Tinder's parent company, Match Group, says the case, "is simply about forcing Bumble to stop competing with Match and Tinder using Match's own inventions, patented designs, trademarks, and trade secrets." On Bumble, only women make the first move, where as on Tinder anyone can make the first move after being matched.
