Bumble Incorporating New Features

Whitney Wolfe is a woman who is known for her work as the creator of Bumble. This app has changed the way women utilize these dating apps. It opened the door to empower women and encourage them with the chance to stand up for themselves and garner that strength to be bold with their choices. Gone are the days where women have to hide before they speak to a guy. Bumble uses the swiping feature and creates matches when two people both “like” each other on the app. In order for the conversation to start, it is required that the woman must respond and send them the message first. If she doesn’t, the match is gone. For more latest update connect with Whitney Wolfe on Twitter.

Bumble is now incorporating new features into their system to make it more fun, interactive, and a generally better site to use. Many users would use the app nonchalantly and constantly either be on the app or generally delete it from their phone to rest from using the app. They would then place a message on their bio saying that they didn’t have the app on their phone and won’t be responding to matches but will be eventually.

Bumble then saw this change in how the site was being used that they decided to add in the new feature, Bumble Snooze. Snooze allows you to send an instant message to anyone whom you make a match with, and it will basically let the person know that you are not using the app. Whitney Wolfe knows this idea is great for those who don’t want to stop using the app altogether but want to take a break from being on it so much. Bumble is receiving criticism because their thoughts involve people not using the app, but Whitney Wolfe knows what her app is capable of doing and she wants to give people that freedom to take a break if they so choose.

It is rare for an app to give users the benefit of not having to use it and take a break when they need it. Whitney Wolfe believes in her product and loves this idea.

Freedom Checks: A New Source of Income

Many Americans are looking for an additional source of income, now that prices are soaring high and it seems a little difficult to pay their bills. One of the writers for the Banyan Hill Publishing Company, Matt Badiali, released a video encouraging the public that they should invest in freedom checks instead. Matt Badiali worked with the oil and petroleum industry for years, and he got the information about these checks when he was still a geologist for a large oil and petroleum company. He knew that the information would help a lot of people in the present day, so he decided to upload it online and convince a huge percentage of the population that investing in these checks is a great idea.

According to Matt Badiali, these checks can be availed from companies which are part of the MLP circle, or the master limited partnerships. MLPs formed after the law called the Statute 26-F was signed by President Richard Nixon. They are the companies which have accepted the conditions posted by the Statute 26-F, saying that they could operate in the United States without paying any taxes if they will be providing freedom checks to the public. The MLPs agreed to the deal, and right after the law was signed, they started handing out these checks to those who wanted to buy it. Through the years, only a few people knew about the existence of freedom checks, and most people do not realize how advantageous it could be if they would invest a small portion of their money to these checks.



Freedom checks can be purchased from $50 to $100, but if the company that they have chosen to invest to would score gold, they will be able to take home a huge pot of money. He also provided several examples to encourage the people in buying these checks. Matt Badiali said that those who have purchased a lot of freedom checks are able to receive thousands of dollars in their mailbox. He knew that more people would be interested in these checks right after hearing the testimonials that he shared. Learn more about Freedom Checks at Release Fact.

PSI Pay’s Managing Director, Phil Davies About The Fintech Sector

PSI-Pay was founded in 2007 and offers payment solutions such as debit card, pre-paid cards, contactless programs, and virtual cards. The U.K.-based financial institution offers its services worldwide, in 173 countries and 44 currencies.


In a recent interview, the Managing Director of PSI-Pay, Phil Davies talked about his current position with the company and the trends in the payments industry. The first task that Phil Davies had was to energize, stabilize and overhaul the workforce at PSI-Pay. He streamlines certain processes in order to be more competitive, and improved the look and feel that the company had to rejuvenate the customer experience.


He notes that the workplace at PSI-Pay became more comfortable and adopted a flexible working policy, introduced motivational rewards, training opportunities, and benefits for employees. From an external point of view, the company streamlined access to its products and services. When discussing Fintech, Phil Davies mentions that the things he learned early in his career that resulted in a greater understanding of it were to plan meticulously and don’t rely on luck.


Fintech (or Financial Technology) is a new type of business that tries to innovate and create new financial services for customers and businesses. The goal of Fintech companies is to make financial technology easier, faster and more convenient. They often offer apps and websites that enable people to manage their finances much easier. Mobile apps are also a popular tool employed by Fintech companies, as apps are used to make payments easier by using cell phones at a restaurant or other establishments.


Fintech companies are currently working with designers in order to create wearable payment devices. PSI-Pay worked with K Wearables in order to create a contactless payment ring. The ring allows people to make purchases in the United Kingdom and in Europe by holding it up to the card readers that allow MasterCard contactless payments.

Phil Davies, having been Managing Director at PSI-Pay for more than 20 years, became accustomed with the challenges that the Fintech sector presents. One such hurdle is presented in the form of financial regulations, as they don’t apply to new technologies such as cashless and contactless payment devices. However, he notes that technology is no longer the barrier that it used to be and the challenges are more mundane.
