Say hello to the app called “Rumblr” (the Beta version launched on 11/09/15)…
Rumblr actually allows users to arrange impromptu fights based on their location.
This web-based application promises to make “Fight Club” styled events (the movie involved groups of bored men led by Brad Pitt and Ed Norton meeting up in secret to take part in bare knuckle brawls) bouts a reality by pitting violent strangers against each other. In fact “Rumblr” is described as a “‘Tinder’ for ‘Fight Club’“.
Rumblr features a both chat function which allows opponents to trash talk each other and an interactive map showing where fights are happening so others can go along to watch.
According to the app creator’s website: “Rumblr is an app for recreational fighters to find, meet, and fight other brawl enthusiasts nearby. 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.” According to the apps developers, Matt Henderson and Jack Kim: “We’ve been recreational fighters our entire lives and were tired of the inefficiencies that exist when trying to find someone to fight. Rumblr alleviates the trouble fighters have when searching for suitable opponents. We were actually rejected by Apple’s App Store so we have decided to transition Rumblr into a public, globally accessible web application” The app was initially due to be released on Apple’s App Store, but was rejected. (The app was initially due to be released on Apple’s App Store, but was rejected as Apple has strict rules about apps that encourage violence or result in physical harm.
According to the developers Rumblr works by allowing users to build a profile of themselves, including statistics about their weight and ability. The app then uses these to match fighters together who are nearby, but it also allows users to challenge each other based on their profile picture. It encourages the fighters to lay down a challenge by “telling your match what you don’t like about their picture”. When a challenge is accepted, the users can arrange a time and location before broadcasting the final details to attract a cloud. Fights are then shown on a map and can be filtered to see those nearby, those involving women – called “RumblrHER” – and even group fights. Memo to Rubblr developers Matt Henderson and Jack Kim: You may have created the “‘Tinder’ for ‘Fight Club’” but you have also violated the first rule of Fight Club…
Memo to Rubblr developers Matt Henderson and Jack Kim continued: You and your app might very well also have committed, be committing, or be abetting the commission of crime as in almost all civilized sovereign jurisdictions fighting in a public place is considered to be criminal disorderly conduct and arranging a fight to be attended by an audience can easily be considered an unlawful public assembly, or worse. As a prosecutor the charging possibilities are virtually limitless, especially in the event of death or serious bodily injury. I know that this was pointed out to you as you have replied by saying to some who criticized your app for encouraging violence that they were “‘not open minded enough about the community we are providing value to”… but I suggest that this will not preclude some prosecutor somewhere from charging you both as accessories…
