Garbage. Keeps deleting chats
ewestby's Review of GrindrReviewed on 9/6/18 7:14 PM
Update: each new revision seems to be less stable than the last. It regularly freezes, and now a new problem has emerged: full profiles regularly become inaccessible for minutes at a time, so all you can see about someone is his photo. Everything else you can normally swipe up to see is blank. It’s especially galling when I’ve paid for access. Please, please, please make stability your only goal for future releases. ————— Original review: I’ve been an Xtra member for a while, and I’m surprised at the number of new bugs introduced by each successive version update. For example the latest revision can’t refresh itself after the user has switched to another app for a few minutes—it consistently says “unable to update” and needs to be force quit. In-app notifications are totally unreliable. And the online/offline indicator doesn’t work either: it blinks between on and off every time you change pages, even if the person has been online the entire time.

rhhdhdhdhdhdh's Review of GrindrReviewed on 9/6/18 12:41 PM
The only reason I’m giving this trash app a one star is because of the mods. Every single picture I try to use gets rejected. Meanwhile I see people half naked everywhere and my picture that isn’t as half as bad as theirs gets rejected? Why? If you want to have all of your pics get rejected then use this app. In my opinion you’re better off using scruff.
srogoff40's Review of GrindrReviewed on 9/6/18 11:55 AM
The staff at this app never care about customer service, product improvement, quality, or respect. Don’t waste your time and money here. So sad that the gay community has this kind of Ripoff. When you see those idiots at Pride festivals, be sure to tell them why we’ve all left them. Why we won’t waste our time on their messed up app.

Benji.Benji's Review of GrindrReviewed on 9/5/18 7:48 AM
It’s too difficult to delete old messages. If you don’t delete, app starts running slowly. No, force closing the app does not help and is not a solution. I want to be able to delete messages EASIER. Multi-select and delete all are basic options that are missing from this app. Forcing me to individually swipe for delete on each message, AND then click confirm for each message is really cumbersome and warrants my one star review for this app. Make it easier to delete messages please.

With all the money that this app is making by forcing us to watch advertisements you would think they could create an app that doesn’t crash and operates all the time
oldtoysNewplastic's Review of GrindrReviewed on 9/5/18 12:40 AM
They’ve gone too far with ads. They’ve gotten greedy and it’s destroying the usefulness of the app. It’s barely usable, it’s like installing the worlds biggest pop up ad on your phone, all in an effort to force you to pay them. Xtra doesn’t sell you anything useful, it just makes the app usable.

Minix54's Review of GrindrReviewed on 9/30/18 4:55 AM
I have had this app for awhile and every so often my messages will just disappear. When someone messages me that I’ve already talked to the messages re-appear until swiped out of the chat. Once swiped out it says no results and doesn’t show my messages, that is until that same person responds to me again. Then I’m unable to message that person until they reply back. Fix this please.

Polygon6's Review of GrindrReviewed on 9/29/18 1:54 AM
Any social app WITH a block limit is doomed to fail. The app is plagued with phishing bots looking for bank details and ad bots that want you to go to some random webcam chat site that wants your credit card info to sign up but is ”completely free”. How does the app reward you putting up with them? By limiting how many blocks you get so that you cant block toxic/annoying people and the bots. The block limit was designed solely to incentivize paying for the grindr plus crap.
RichVL's Review of GrindrReviewed on 9/29/18 1:13 PM
If you love pop up ads then this is the app for you! Before you can look at a profile, a super-annoying and loud pop up ad—that you can’t close for five seconds—will play. Save your sanity and use a good app like Surge.
kaffolder's Review of GrindrReviewed on 9/29/18 11:55 AM
I have not often reviewed apps on the App Store, as I have generally been happy overall, but felt it necessary to review this app. I recently made an accidental subscription purchase with this app and after reaching out to both Apple and Grindr support was told to consult the opposing company. I have still not received a refund and am very upset as it was an accidental annual subscription...aka a lot of money...not some $0.99 fee. I don’t really care who is at fault here...Apple or Grindr, but one or the other should make it right. I’d rate customer service in the negatives. If you’re a company with any sense of integrity or appreciation for what you do, make things right!!
_King_T's Review of GrindrReviewed on 9/28/18 4:40 PM

MrBear213's Review of GrindrReviewed on 9/28/18 3:57 AM
The main reason I don’t use Grindr often is because of ADS! Tap on someone guess what... an ad comes up!! Block someone, an ad pops up! Close the app, an ad comes up!!! Sick of it. Scruff is better, but if you like ads, use Grindr.

ntrigue26's Review of GrindrReviewed on 9/26/18 10:57 PM
In a day and age where sex crimes are all over the news, it shocks me that Grindr takes no issue with underage users on its platform. Profiles that clearly state they are underage are still allowed on the platform, even after MULTIPLE reports to Grindr. Underage users are putting not only themselves at risk, but also users who are of age who may inadvertently commit a crime that could be classified as a felony. Grindr should do more to protect those who legitimately use their platform, and Apple should take a long hard look as to whether they should allow this to remain in their App Store.

To be honest I was really hoping to look for friends on this app but sadly it only gives me people who are extremely far away even when I look for people in the same area as me I have to pay just to chat with them which in my opinion is stupid this app won’t last much longer if if keeps this up I’m not talking about preferment I’m talking about the limit of people of who you gave us some of the people I looked up on this app lived in the same state as me in different areas that I can not reach out I’m saying is you should try locating people who are closer to the user of the app that are also using them sure there was only one good thing that came out of this app me finding a friend who understands me and all but where he lives is the problem not everyone who downloads the app has a car you know so why not allow the people to used the search engine you have installed in the app for free or at least for a month or something like it so people can find each who are more close by them after people who use grinder don’t always use it to find love sometimes they use it to find people who they can connect and understand each other because people who use grinder use it to find people to who they can connect to like me and my friend that I found in your app see where I’m going with this not everyone is a happy person behind there accounts because I know when I used grinder for the first time I wasn’t looking for love but for someone who I can at least connect with in a emotional because when I used it I was a depressed person who had no friends in his life no matter how hard I tried to make them happy it was never enough so please make grinder a place where people like me who had nothing can at least find someone to connect to ether in a love relationship or friend relationship who are close by them more closer then you think that is all good bye creators of grinder

PRDaTo's Review of GrindrReviewed on 9/25/18 10:49 PM
It is an application that does not really have any scruple allowing them to continue making false profiles and copying photos of others. They have been doing this for years and do nothing to save users' privacy. They continue to allow the same. Example: A user opening an account must be the phone number and create a history. if that user has had to block access, that up to a year can not use the app again. And so on until you never have access to that number. They have sent me stolen photos but I said it and they do not do anything, they have also stolen photos from me and are now using them to send others. They close the account and they come back and open it. There's no respect. neither from the users nor from the party who creates this application.
Jessman1016's Review of GrindrReviewed on 9/25/18 10:21 AM

ben2009's Review of GrindrReviewed on 9/24/18 5:33 PM
I wish Grindr would make their platform more resilient. Since inception (around 2008) Grindr has maintained name recognition as a Gay “dating” app, but it has progressively declined over the years and been repeatedly outshined by newer competitors. Features often come too little too late, and Grindr imposes more restrictions and ads on free users than their competitors. There are regularly swarms of fake users (bots and/or scammers), nowadays it’s mostly “sugar daddy looking for sugar baby.” The most sorely lacking feature is backup and restore of messages. With how unstable this application is historically, and how often people need to reinstall or switch devices, it is unthinkable they will not implement *something* to preserve messages and/or photos. Currently, I just wade through old messages on an old device and screenshot anything I might need in the future. It’s a colossal waste of time, and the most inelegant solution. I would pay for a backup feature, and I do pay for Xtra, but I don’t plan on renewing when my year is up. I don’t need or want gaymoji, I just want the core functions to work reliably and to be able to not lose everything when the app glitches or when I switch phones.

This app Lacks the functionality of Scruff, making it a rather dull experience. Pop up ads on the free version are totally out of control, and it’s become abundantly clear this is at its core just a money making enterprise. No real warmth or community created here.

“Do you like ads? Popups? Automatically sound play ads? Ads placed so close to the few things you’ll want to click that you accidentally click them? Ads every time you start a chat? Ads every time you switch from one list to the next? Well we at Grindr have em! You’ll get more ads than you’ll ever need! I mean sure you could pay us $20 a month to make most of them go away but that is what all the bots are for! You won’t use most of those added features anyways as we have no idea how our app works and probably we use Scruff anyways.

Kcm1989's Review of GrindrReviewed on 9/22/18 11:08 PM
With slight upgrades every few years , this app has been left in the dust by other apps , premium version didn’t offer much to begin with so people just stayed on the standard free version. Now that the standard free version is loaded with ads that open pop ups (on iPhones nonetheless ) its become apparent that instead of making the premium version actually better they’ve begun to make the free version even worse . Only on this app because it’s probably the most populated but every time I get an ad I just close the app and re open it .
NickME646's Review of GrindrReviewed on 9/22/18 10:46 PM
I’ve tried almost all of the apps in this category, and Grindr seems to be the worst of the bunch. Loud ads (even when my phone is on silent); users soliciting me for illegal goods and services; users stealing my photo and posting it on a revenge site; and the app runs my battery down. According to my battery settings, I spent 5.2 hours on Grindr last week and 5.7 hours on Gmail. Gmail used 13% of my battery and Grindr used 23%. Those extremely loud ads must require a lot of power...

I admit I will probably be among those who do uninstall just because I personally haven’t gained too much from the app (fault of other users and not the creators) but I love the innovative ideas you come up with to make it easier for those who have.
Drinkingwater49's Review of GrindrReviewed on 9/20/18 11:31 AM
I understand ad’s pay the bills, got it, but my goodness. The ad’s play sound, appear a lot, and are hard to get rid of. I catch myself using this app less and less because it gets difficult and frustrating to navigate through all the pop up ad’s.
Bob Smithers's Review of GrindrReviewed on 9/2/18 9:44 PM
This app is so stuck in the early 2000. It's like the developers still live in that decade and don't understand what to do. Chats that don't sync on the same account across multiple devices?? Really!? What the heck. Chat histories that get lost because they are only stored locally on the one device?? Really!? You guys have been floating along with the same junk architecture for years. Get your act together and make some meaningful changes. BIG Hint: multiple profile photos isn't it!
jbbnmw's Review of GrindrReviewed on 9/2/18 7:04 PM
When I am contacted by a fake, scammer or phishing profile, I send a notice and yet weeks/months later the profile is still active. Right now their big catch phrase is “on a peace keeping mission” and ask have I ever dated an Army man. I fish them along getting all the wrong answers knowing the are fake. If we take the time to notify you, please take the time to investigate and delete these fake profiles using pictures of men that don’t belong to them.
Sintolamfj's Review of GrindrReviewed on 9/2/18 4:59 AM
It’s an app to view instructive ads. The owners and developers of the app keep finding news ways to deliver intrusive ads. It’s an ad machine. Update 8/1/18. Over a dozen attempts to have a picture depicting me from the waist up I’ve been rejected when there are so many guys whose pics show them in Speedo’s, compression pants and other “revealing” outfits. I am staring to suspect whoever is approving these pics is biased and favors white guys with those outfits.

This app has so many bugs it’s incredible. Stop introducing new features until all the old features actually work. You should be giving xtra away instead of charging for it. It just goes from bad to worse with every update. Just crazy you can make this app like its suppose to.
TylerTyler1's Review of GrindrReviewed on 9/18/18 9:49 PM
I’m not even white, but I still don’t like how they just released a video saying that white people need to stop being “racist towards other races”, when in reality its just preferences. Ive seen plenty of people saying they don't want white people messaging them because they don’t find them attractive, but when white people do it, its racism. So if you’re a white person, about to download this app, Grindr will assume you’re racist if you have a specific preference, so avoid this app.

How is it that my pics in a regular speedo get denied but there are others that have their crotch bulged out and see thru material and theirs get approved. I can legally wear a speedo on the street in presence of children .... speedo is not inappropriate it’s a swimsuit and it’s use is part of the olympics... but people’s sex gear gets approved. Absolutely no consistency !

The amount of time wasted dealing with fake profiles that you think are real is frustrating. I’ve never have this problem with scruff. Once. Which is why I subscribe to them. Grindr needs to figure it out.
Watchtheedge's Review of GrindrReviewed on 9/17/18 6:31 PM
From the second you install the app, you're hit with a deluge of ads. In the private messages window, every time you try to view a profile, when you try to send or read messages. I'm not against advertiser-supported free apps, but forced pop up advertisements that play sound (even when your device is muted) and intrusive ads that lock up the app or constantly open the browser or App Store are highly annoying. Consider checking out other apps of this type, at least one of which just eliminated banner ads (and theirs weren’t even that bad!).
omarthedogmatic's Review of GrindrReviewed on 9/17/18 3:19 PM
Hello! :) I’m going to write the most honest review about Grindr. I’ve noticed many users write bad reviews because of the lack of interaction or negative experiences with users. Personally, I don’t have an issue with men messaging me. But I’d like to say, GRINDR has written this narrative about GAY MEN that all we want is “fun”. Maybe that was the case when this app first came about 10 years ago, but like many other long time users, I’ve found that to be quite boring now.. headless torsos, muscular “masculine” men who treat others badly simply for being different. What I’d like to see in Grindr, is GROWTH. Why not focus more on the dating aspect of GRINDR, instead of manipulating us into sex? Why not remove users that openly admit to being meth addicts or those who don’t get checked regularly? Grindr is an amazing idea, but I feel like the developers/creators have just put us gays in a box and said, have fun lol

Grindr is knowingly exposing users precise location data and profile information to third party apps seriously compromising users’ privacy putting them at serious risk.

Nightbird85's Review of GrindrReviewed on 9/15/18 1:29 AM
I’ve been a paying customer for years for Xtra. I started dating someone a while back and deleted the app. Now that I am single again, I’ve attempted for weeks to log in and reset my password, never getting the email after trying to reset it. So I’ve tried creating a new account and it’s impossible since the last step, the verify “catcha” cannot be completed as the finish button is off the screen. I’ve force closed, I’ve redownloaded the app, and can’t get anywhere. 9 days of waiting on a reply back from support. Ridiculous when some of us pay hundreds of dollars a year for an app that doesn’t work and support that doesn’t care.
Claydood's Review of GrindrReviewed on 9/15/18 12:57 AM
Grindr has the most annoying ads ever created. Worse than pop up ads. These are interactive ads. These ads will make you play a game or tap on things. Most of these ad games will make you play for up to 10 minutes to reach the end. You want to check out a guy on Grindr? You have to play a game first. Better to just close out of the app and reopen it when these games pop up. Most of the time I never want to reopen the app from becoming annoyed with interactive ads.

My premium account was just banned - RIGHT when I purchased xtra due to a profile named “older4younger” wanting to ban me because my bio said “no older men, around my age please”. He had tried to say that I was ageist. I’m only 18, i don’t wanna sleep with men that are as old as my parents! This was clearly an act of bias and it’s extremely upsetting to see such works on a large social app. I’m extremely disappointed and appalled by this action.

jacobsfine2's Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/9/18 9:45 PM
There will NOT be a subscription renewal primarily due to the ridiculous restrictions and rejections of several profile pictures that have been deemed inappropriate and rejected. Makes absolutely no sense at all when there’s other profiles that have and currently exist that are much more “suggestive” than any picture I’ve ever submitted. I’ve decided to join Scruff who’s policy isn’t at all as restrictive. Actually one of the photos rejected by Grindr is now my profile picture there. I’ve tested you all several times in the last week before making my final decision today to not renew my yearly subscription. So don’t even try the card again because it will not work and I have no intentions of subscribing again to this app.

KyleMJ7's Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/7/18 10:42 PM
After having my original account, that I’ve had for years, randomly suspended due to what I’m assuming was someone reporting me for some unjust reason. I emailed the help desk and inquired about it with negative response (2days). I then created another account and within 3hrs or creating the account I was yet again suspended from the new account. I’m assuming someone is just pressing the button because they never got a response from me and will continue to do so if I create another account. I feel harassed in this situation and hope Grindr takes action against that individual for false reporting. This app has grown worse and worse over the years. I gave it the benefit of the doubt but this might be my last time using this service unless the company figures out a proper way to address false reporting incidents, those who actually do violate their terms, and improves on their customer complaint responses in the appropriate manner. Edit: Emailed for the third time...

It’s too difficult to delete old messages. If you don’t delete, app starts running slowly.
MisterFox's Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/6/18 2:29 AM
This app is still so buggy that even with a paid subscription, you’re going to see your message marked “sent,” for a good long while (long enough that someone will figure you’re a flake or have lost interest) before it says delivered. This issue is even worse when it’s a holiday or there is an area of concentrated use (like pride). Of course support used pride as an excuse for long support delays but didn’t go so far as admitting they didn’t have sufficient server deployment. Support was significantly more responsive this time... but still not entirely helpful. Blaming everything else isn’t really about support, it’s about evasion of responsibility. If you’re going to cancel, be sure to do it right away, the subscriptions are community-destroyingly expensive. Despite the issues, the lag and being told I had messages only to find none... and then to be told I was “filtering it,” they managed to steal another month from me. Save your money. Paying doesn’t improve anything. And someone, PLEASE release a product that doesn’t make meeting each other a financial situation. Charge to be ad free but make your better Grindr (“bettr?”) identical for paid or unpaid patrons. Ads cost people time. That’s valuable too. Let’s start working on inclusion and creating real community instead of always making a profit off each other.

KyleMJ7's Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/4/18 1:18 AM
After having my original account, that I’ve had for years, randomly suspended due to what I’m assuming was someone reporting me for some unjust reason. I emailed the help desk and inquired about it with negative response (2days). I then created another account and within 3hrs or creating the account I was yet again suspended from the new account. I’m assuming someone is just pressing the button because they never got a response from me and will continue to do so if I create another account. I feel harassed in this situation and hope Grindr takes action against that individual for false reporting. This app has grown worse and worse over the years. I gave it the benefit of the doubt but this might be my last time using this service unless the company figures out a proper way to address false reporting incidents, those who actually do violate their terms, and improves on their customer complaint responses in the appropriate manner.
liltechdude's Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/4/18 1:08 AM
I’m replacing a review I wrote a few years ago for pretty much the same problem. The application is very unstable. It crashes frequently, especially when trying to resume from background. 40% of the time switching back to the app results in a freeze and eventual crash. They’ve had years to get these chronic instability issues fixed. They haven’t fixed them.
Pookie628's Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/4/18 12:54 AM
I tried the 7 day trial with the 2 month discounted subscription. For the features I received access to.. I would say, access to more guys, the pin, being able to change the app logo, and seeing the messages within the notifications without needing to open the app, and the read receipts was pretty cool. But not worth the price. So sadly I cancelled the subscription.
Reviewerr00's Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/31/18 9:44 AM
The app is getting better slowly but surely. kudos to the developers! The spam isnt as rampant anymore. It does have trouble connecting sometimes but not as frequent. I would love to see the group chat feature enabled, and to be able to see the other person typing while im typing. Also, to be able to delete multiple chats at once would be helpful and auto delete messages that were sent after you block a person, instead of leaving them and them reappearing when you unblock them. I would also like to see a feature that allows you to reply to messages from the notification banner on iOS like other apps.

ATL reader's Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/31/18 3:43 AM
With an iPhone 6s the “verification” that you are not a robot tool isn’t sized to fit the screen - so despite picking all the correct pretty pictures you can see the verify button and hence can’t complete the registration. Can’t believe they are slow sloppy STILL in the development.
JDogmac's Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/31/18 3:23 PM
I find it funny the way there are double standards when it comes to pictures being approved and reporting abusive profiles isn’t taken seriously. This app is more a joke then anything. Has a lot more issues then just that but mainly you can tell what kind of people are running things. And from what I see reading reviews I wouldn’t be the first or last to see that. If I could give it negative stars I would.
Me54701's Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/30/18 9:43 PM
I initially liked Grindr when I first signed up. There were lots of guys near me, and I even wound up meeting a few. Since I liked the app, I decided to upgrade to their “Extra” membership. This eliminated the annoying ads, and added a few more nice features. But the last few times my “Extra” membership would expire, I would loose my “Extra” features and the auto renewal would either take the I-pay payment without renewing the “Extra” features, or not take the I-pay payment at all. Another problem I had was my profile pic just disappearing one day. And finally, there seems to be more and more fake profiles. Of course, all of that is just a bit of an inconvenience if you could get customer service to help you, but that is basically non-existent on this app. It takes days, if at all for someone to get back to you. And that, my friends, accounts for a one-star rating from a formerly “Extra”-paying member. I’ve also decided to dump my profile and delete the app in the near future as well. Too bad, it could be a really good app if they just fixed a few things.
SammyF193's Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/30/18 10:49 PM
Some catfish has been deceiving people using photos of a friend of mine so me and five other people reported him for impersonation and he’s STILL online and using the pictures!!!! Do you guys just not care that someone is being used like that? Also, how come my profile photo gets rejected THREE times before finally it gets accepted (a pic of me in a speedo), while today I saw someone’s picture with his penis plainly erected and showing? Terrible terrible app, worst of all is how messages sometimes randomly don’t reach the other person and he thinks you’re ignoring them.
BeenUbered!'s Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/3/18 8:16 PM
Here we go again! 5yrs ago we had the same issues of messages being eaten or not arriving and this last update has the same message eating not being delivered bug yet makes notification tone that a message had arrived yet when you go to messages nothing is there! It doesn’t take a mathematician to note that out of the 5.5k downloads why the app still has only 2 star lol. The developer states he welcomes new feature suggestions but doesn’t want to fix the same bugs the app has had for years! Have some dignity Grindr! Intensive power hugging battery draining app! Needs major code optimization!

Sparksr72's Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/29/18 3:34 AM
I’m so tired of this app. It’s ad after ad, barely shows any men, barely anyway to monitor what men I see or who gets to message me. That I could deal but I deleted that app because how many transphobic and racist messages I was getting from the app’s user base and how the developers do nothing about this toxic user base they have. I really can’t stand it anymore. I got tinder and I’ve honestly had way better luck and the dudes there are more attractive anyway. Honestly all I ever got from grindr where old dudes lookin for young lookin men, trans chasers, etc. TL;DR: it’s an app that barely functions with an unbearable user base. Bye!

Niceguynva's Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/29/18 11:25 PM
For some odd reason the app never wants to work. It won’t allow you to log in then you have to delete it and then reload it then sign in and it doesn’t work. They will disable your account for no reason. I am so tired of this crap and they need to get it together. I have a lot of friends from all over that I talk to on here and Grindr is making it hard to do anything. I wouldn’t recommend this app to anyone. At least scruff, A4A, and manhunt work all the time without having to pay them monthly. Now with the new update you can’t block people with a free profile. That’s great so people you don’t want contacting you still can harass you. Great job Grindr no wonder you have a 2 star rating wish I could rate lower then 1.
Anonymous dissatisfied user's Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/29/18 11:05 AM
I gave this app a one star because of the fact that once I deleted my account, I immediately did not feel comfortable or re-insured that my account was actually deleted. Therefore, I re-created the account using the same email once I login, I notice that my old account and profile picture was still logged in as another user. Which makes me believe that they never delete your account or your photo, which only says that they do not respect your privacy. Although this may seem something so simple, but when it comes to being professional I find this very unethical. I have also consider suing, if my profile pic and profile isn’t delete it within 24 hours.

MastrCake's Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/25/18 4:55 AM
There are too many people making an account, being blatantly racist (calling me the “n” word), getting banned, then making another account and repeating endlessly. I’m getting tired of it, it reduces my usage of an app meant to bring good into people’s lives, and is single-handedly keeping me from paying for Grindr Xtra. If you would PLEASE figure out a way to keep people from abusing this app, such as requiring email verification before finalizing sign-up, I’d really appreciate it. But for minorities of a minority group (the LGBTQ+community), this app is depressing and upsetting. Please do something!

DEMONSPAZ's Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/24/18 8:45 PM
I get there’s a free version available and you want to make more money with ads... You already have ads at the bottom and ads while using the swiping feature at the top. Now after your most recent update, now there are ads every so often when just tapping on different profiles. It’s very annoying. If you want more money, than make your subscription options cheaper to attract more customers. Marketing 101, lower the cost, gain more interest. Unless if you’re aiming to drive away users with your overwhelming ads, which is almost where I’m at... but why would you want to intentionally do that?

m743's Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/23/18 5:37 AM
I’ve never taken the time to review an app, but having been using this one since its inception it seems apt to give my 2 cents: the inconsistencies, lax monitoring and outright biased moderation of profile images, profile content and underage members is outrageous. I’ve personally had it at this point, sick of half my messages not getting through and half messages sent to me showing up on notifications but when I open up the app... nada. On this particular day, though, I’m really, really, really incensed by the discriminatory, inconsistent and offensively undeniable practices relating to profile pictures. I’ve always experienced very, very strict vetting to the extent of images not violating any guidelines rejected; furthermore in the past few days it’s come to my attention that there seems to be an abundance of guys out there that get a free pass and are exempt of certain regulations... without going into detail, it’s very frustrating to submit the same image over and over cropping just a bit more even though there’s nothing to crop as per the guidelines... long story short picture rejected 6 times so far, and they do reserve the right to crop at their discretion yet no... This is bullsh*t. Anyway, I’ll be back to continue this tirade.
fyckuff's Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/23/18 5:03 PM
I don’t understand (among many things with this app) why my profile pics always get rejected.

But then I see profile pics with guys in underwear, dicks about to bust out, pubic hair and everything else that breaks GrindR profile guideline.... and their ok. Boggles my mind!!!
Bom65's Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/23/18 2:14 PM
When you think this app can’t get any worse, they do an update and it goes further downhill. I made the mistake of purchasing a subscription thinking it would improve the bad experiences I was having with the free version. I was wrong. Now, I am paying for upgrades that don’t work. The filters rarely ever work. If I turn them on, the app just seems to ignore them. This is across the board in the browsing section and in the friends/favorites section. When I turn on the online now filter, the app still shows people who are not online, nor have been for an hour or so. When I turn the filter on for position, it shows all positions and ignores my filter. A problem with the friends/favorites section is when I go to it, more often than not it gives me an error message saying it can’t find me and NO profiles are there. I literally have to close the app again, and again, and again trying to get it to work. I have also found that the app is showing my profile as online when I don’t even have the app turned on. Considering the app limits the number of profiles you are allowed to see, this is likely making my profile take up space in that number, limiting the amount of actual users online to an even smaller number. That is pathetic. Recently, the administrators of the app sent out a survey asking what new features users would like to see on the app. REALLY??? How about hiring real code writers who know what they are doing, and fix the ridiculously large amount of problems plaguing this app. Stop spending all the profits and reinvest some money into making this app work as it is advertised to do, and that people like myself re paying for. I honestly believe they owe myself and other paying users a HUGE refund for the money they are taking while not delivering on what they promise.

Nicholas_456's Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/23/18 1:29 AM
I acquired Grindr at the very beginning of its release on the market during my teenage years. Which was approximately 10 years ago more or less. At that time, the experience was fun the moments were unforgettable and nevertheless the users were genuine and sincere. Even the mediocre guys were somewhat ok. Overtime as the years went by the profiles and the users behind them became un-realistic, un-trustworthy, deceitful, rude, dangerously un-healthy and petty. It’s now the epitome of a mis-interpretation of gays and how we are perceived to the public. We come in all shapes and sizes etc. Nonetheless, an invasion of personal privacy for those of us who value our discretion. In a deeper context, Messages are lost. The App crashes consistently and the expensive forceful subscription for the amenities it offers aren't worth the time, money or patience. You all have taken the fun out of “fun” alongside meeting guys in a positive safe atmosphere. In conclusion, when a location is publicly visible on your profile other members use it as a tracking device to find out where you are against your will unless you manually turn it off inside settings. Quite stalkerish I might add. Headless torsos and whorish married/partnered straight and gay men looking for a quickie are a thing of my past.

The newest version no longer allows paid customers to see the Grindr messages that come through.

Now paying customers cannot see the notification message and you must load the app to view the message which is another extra step. Please bring back the notification message on top for the paid customers like myself.

calaviccial's Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/20/18 7:28 AM
I don't mind ads. I really don't. They usually help support free apps and get money into the developers pockets so the app can continue to be free. Good all around. What I DON'T like are when ads get really obtrusive. For instance, today I had an ad that took me outside of the app 5 times in order to redirect me to their website in Safari. Then I had an ad that played music loudly through my speakers. Then that ad that took me outside of the app did so again. Someone needs to fix this because you are driving people outside of the app. It's a wonder grindr has any stars when people are having to constantly close the app before it can be used.

The only reason we use grindr is because it's no real good competition out there from other apps, and we've just become accustomed to it. The reach isn't far enough, no log out feature, if you delete app all messages are gone. Give all good perks to paid subscribers, harasses you with HIV info like were all dirty deviants, and won't let you have a nude pic like this is f**kin tinder! People want a good app to find a good hook up. Picture verification would be great so we know we're getting what we are showed. Video chat would be nice, lose the payment feature and just up the adds and give everyone the locked features. Stop with sex Ed harassment. And someone for the love of God create a better app.
Outdoordudeca's Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/2/18 8:18 PM
Grinder xtra filters work half the time, maybe, just maybe.... the customer service is horrible. They take two weeks to a month to respond, if you are lucky. They also suspend accounts without any reason, yet keep the cash, ignore the customers, and treat their customers like garbage. I know several people who have paid subscriptions, including myself, who’s paid features stopped working, even though the subscription was paid for, and all of a sudden the screen to join pops up at twice the rate it was before. So Grinder is stopping paid memberships during the time period they have been paid for, keeping the membership money, and trying to force its members to pay twice the rate they are currently paying, whether or not its members want to pay the higher rate. Complete fraud! I’m going to take legal action for their fraudulent activities.

Romatod88's Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/19/18 5:02 AM
The new pop up ads that you can’t close right away are the most annoying kind of ads out there. You’ve also spammed our inboxes with more ads. The creators of this app must be making a fortune because they’ve never had this many advertisements before. Additional spending $20 a month for Grindr Xtra is ton of money for not much added benefit, that’s $240 a year!!! I can spend that kinda money on a whole a months car payment etc. The only thing I’ll give to you guys is that we finally get notified when we get a message. It’s about time.
GaTx1092's Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/19/18 3:14 AM
I have used grindr for several years now and the current state of ads popping up is really making the experience awful to the degree I don’t even want to use the app anymore. It’s become excessive and frustrating. I won’t even utilize a company promoting their product through these ads because the ads are so frequent and bothersome. There are more choices out there and users will gravitate towards them because of issues like this. Please reconsider the decision that has led to a very noticeable change in this strategy.
crazy e caos's Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/19/18 3:12 PM
I’m new to the app since 2017 of Feb. And it seems nothing can be saved. So many bots. And so many unneeded changes like useless emojis. Lately I get a notification that some one is reaching me and only to find out that person has no message but I’m told I have a message. When I click older conversations the conversation are all but gone. Oh well that is a sign for me to step aside until Grindr fixes itself. Thanks for the moments I have had in the past I learned so much in my year with you. See you around my friend.

It took almost two days for me to get messages from some people. I’ve been connected to my WiFi at home, double checked to make sure that was working fine, and later while seeing friends got messages from two days prior for the very first time. It’s hard to “talk” to someone when you don’t get their messages for days later. I even have Xtra and it’s not seeming worth it at this point.

Omanwill's Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/18/18 11:42 PM
I RARELY review apps, but I'll make an exception. This app is terrible. First, it's full of ads. The photos work about 50% of the time. Often times, you can't change your profile picture for hours. It's slow. The developers (obviously) don't care about any of the feedback. And there are multiple apps that are better. Update: There newest nonsense is that 90% of of profile pics are rejected. I have no idea what their standards are for what you can use. Sometimes it approves all, others it approves none. Sometimes it rejects pics I’ve used before. Others times it approves them. This app is garbage. My advice; don't waste your time.

ACX901's Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/16/18 6:02 AM
Probably one of the lowest rated apps and still I download it. And so do others because of what it provides. Too bad it couldn’t be something great. The premium packages are pointless to me. There’s plenty of ads and surely that’s providing sufficient income. However I’m not the accountant. But it comes off as cheap. I’m bombarded by ads and one for $20 a month from premium membership? No. That’s a bit too high for me given all it can’t do. Probably fun for call boys. Also, I’ve had my recent profile pics constantly rejected for the past 3 weeks even though my pics abide by Grindr TOU.
Racer38's Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/16/18 2:04 AM
The new, Incredibly frequent ads have made the app borderline unusable. The old way was fine, with occasional ads, but one popping up every minute or so is ridiculous. it is a free app after all. And what is with all the bots? Your annoying “I’m not a robot” captcha clearly doesn’t do anything because I can see multiple fake robot accounts at any given time. As always, this app is an embarrassment & the developers do not care enough to do anything about it. Maybe I’ll just start using Scruff from now on.
nickizelle's Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/16/18 1:49 AM
Grindr has become a train wreck, more frequently with each update recently. You can’t even look at a guy’s profile now without a pop up ad (that you can’t even click out of anymore). Now there are useless features in addition to the usual problems with using this app. What good is “fresh faces” if it’s just the apps newest bots? Support is equally useless (their actual response to the spam problem is “report their profiles and block them”, which you don’t want to do because anything you click in this app leads to another ad). All that aside, I can’t even count how often my account was completely deleted, messages didn’t got through, or a very modest picture was rejected with no explanation. I think the developers need to reevaluate the app and try to remember why we were all so excited for grindr in those first few years. This app, and/or the company, needs a complete overhaul and I’ll reconsider maybe thinking about possibly using it again.
neurotrash's Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/16/18 1:07 AM
This app is great when it works but you have got to STOP PUSHING UPDATES THAT BREAK THE APP it is so unprofessional and you are asking for subscription prices that are in the luxury bracket. It is totally unacceptable for an expensive service to break via developer error. The word that comes to mind is FRAUD. App now crashes when I try to open it. UPDATE — OK, it started working about 10 minutes later so I’ll add some stars to this review but Y’ALL ARE ON THIN ICE after that time the app didn’t work for like 10 days earlier this summer 😅

Itzikperez's Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/15/18 7:51 PM
Stopped using the app after downloading the recent updates which forced me to watch 30 seconds ads time after time. Generally I’m ok with ads, as I understand they have to make money which won’t come out of my wallet.. But these ads have gotten out of control. One thing is to put some ads for free users, which is fair. A small banner down the screen, and every once in a while a pop up ad.. I can understand that. Also, offering special features only for premium accounts, which is fair and understandable too... BUT another thing is to make you SUFFER while using the app in order to force you to pay for a premium account just for this to stop. I really don’t see why I should wait 30 seconds just for an ad to pass, and like that wasn’t enough, the next click brings another 30 seconds ad. They took a really good app and made everything to push the users away from using it. Well, good for them. They made it.

I understand ads support the app... but it’s just out of control now. Every 3 profile views you get stuck watching a video that lasts forever. Then when you finally get the option to clear it, it takes you to a picture ad of the same thing that you again have to wait to clear? I’m not against advertisements but it’s a little excessive. Not to mention that the app crashes anytime you exit it to go to another app. Seems like with all that ad revenue they could at least get the app to function properly...

I purchased a subscription for Xtra with auto renewal. Somehow when I opened the app back up, it came up for me to buy the Xtra subscription. Thinking A glitch had happened, I clicked to buy the 3-month. Nope. They charged me twice for the exact same subscription. Messaged them and they said to take it up with Apple. Contacted Apple support directly and they said I don’t qualify for a refund. Just literally got scammed paying two times for the exact same thing.

Ads are horrible. It's 2018 and they added even MORE ads! Just when you thought Grindr couldn't find a new low... They do. The ads pop up on nearly anything you push. When there is an update it tends to mess something up within the app that Grindr has to make another update just to fix whatever they screwed up that time. Fake profiles never go away.

WAY TOO MANY, and extremely LOUD, useless and annoying ads, that suddenly and frequently, pop up out of nowhere. Some are so loud that it forces me to immediately shut down the app. Extremely frustrating user experience. Grindr is flooded with prostitutes. My phone overheats and battery drains really fast when Grindr is in use, this doesn’t happen with any other app. Some messages NEVER go through. It makes other users think you are ignoring them. I signed up to make friends, not enemies. I gave it 2 stars instead of one, because for now it’s still manageable. We’ll see if it goes into a nose dive or if it will be improved anytime soon.

They keep slowly taking away features 1 by 1 so you have to pay a huge monthly fee to use it. Then they bombard you with the most ridiculous ads after every 3rd or so person u browse, and it's getting worse now it's up to 2 ads back to back!!! So yes I feel like I'm being bullied into having to pay... "You don't want to see these 1000 ads a day and u want to use any features, great..PAY!!!" I'm not happy with the way it going... There is a more user friendly app that don't advertise you to death and doesn't beg for your money. Sorry guys!

I can’t sign up! I tried and it took me to the security picture to find out if I am a bot or real person. Once there I can’t see the whole picture or the submit button to finish the signup. Fix this please!!

1/10 of a ⭐️. Forced to listen to 30sec ads. I have to close out the app, then re-open to message someone.
fenrispuppy's Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/12/18 3:40 PM
If you like frequent and super annoying pop up adds that use a lot of data, this is the app for you. Furthermore, they reject perfectly tame profile pictures without every explaining why. The form to ask a customer service question about their policies has a ton of fields to fill out, and after you do the link is broken and you can’t hit send. AND then there are the PnP people and the prostitutes. Even more charming are the people who will chat with you offering hookups or dates and who then try to redirect you to a fraudulent dating website which asks you for your credit card number in order to “verify your identity”. Yeah right. It is absolutely amazing to me that this app is the most popular gay dating app, because it is absolutely awful. It’s a pain to use and half the people are fake. It is literally the worst app I’ve ever used. It’s still popular though. I just don’t get it.
Ademaya's Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/12/18 3:37 AM
I can understand why there would be ads for users, but the full display ads, with sound/video forcing you to watch 30 seconds before you use the app, then another 30 second ad again afterwards? It’s a little too much. I miss when the only ads you saw were at the bottom of the app. It makes the user experience extremely frustrating and makes me consider using another app.
zroger73's Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/12/18 1:54 AM
Polluted with excessive advertising that makes noises even if mute is on! Massive battery and data hog.
Itzikperez's Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/12/18 1:26 PM
Stopped using the app after downloading the recent update which forced me to watch 30 minuets adds time after time. There are many other apps, many other websites and many other services which them all are not that greedy. One thing is to offer premium features, which is fair and understandable, and another thing is to make you SUFFER using the app in order to force you to pay for features you don’t really want. The power belongs to the users, not the developers.
IceEyz5's Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/12/18 1:03 PM
One star. That’s it. I can handle the pop up ads to a certain extent. But they seem to have multiplied, and now, you have 30 second video ads, with sound. I use a number of apps, and tend to use the ones more that are less intrusive. Looks like Grindr is getting pushed to the back of the pack. Nice job guys 👎🏼

I understand some ads for the free version, but the ads are getting out of control. Double ads, every few profile clicks, it’s getting to where it’s not worth it. You need to scale back.

It’s crappy enough that I get bombarded with links in my messages to upgrade my app to premium, but to literally play a 30 second ad every time I click on a profile to chat with someone is completely and horrendously insane. There is a reasons you guys keep getting shotty reviews and 1 or two star ratings, because you guys mucked everything up, I mean Christ guys... scruff is no where in the realm of how bad Grindr is and it’s free too!

Union Jack 7's Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/11/18 7:06 PM

SLowery82's Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/11/18 12:14 PM
The latest video ad changes make the app unusable. Every click or reply results in a 30 second video or game demonstration. Ridiculous. Apparently a declining population means adjusting their ad revenue; this was the worst way to do it.

Squeaks5416's Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/10/18 5:39 PM
This used to be my go to app. Advertisements, I get, are needed to support the app for users who wish to use the service free. Now GRINDr has expanded their advertisement to pop ups every other profile you click on. It’s too bad that you can’t have a good app without getting greedy from advertisers. Pop ups are literally the worse. Go back to the old GRINDr way!
Abercrombie&Fitch_Boy20's Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/10/18 3:14 PM
I really like the app. One thing I just don’t like are all those ad pop-ups. Why can’t this be like all the other apps where only if you tap on it something pops up. Literally after tapping on a profile this long add (with no way out) pops up.
Melvin P. Thorpe's Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/10/18 2:56 PM
Almost every profile viewing pulls up a full screen pop up ad with no clear means of dismissal. It’s more an app for viewing ads than it is an app for viewing profiles. Update: abusive ads continue, only now when you dismiss them (once the means to dismiss them finally deigns to appear), they just pop right back up again.
New 12 cruiser's Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/10/18 1:25 PM
Thanks for the push notifications. - YEARS late to that game though. So more like thanks for finally catching up. Now that we have push notifications you needed additional income, so you’re shoving 30 sec ads every first profile view. And then again one the 4th or 5th view. Everyone else can achieve a decent user and experience but this app consistently cannot. Only positive I can say is that a recent change in you guys finally decided the blocking of a user didn’t need to be punished with a ad as well. It’s now just about the ONLY thing I can do and be pretty confident I won’t have some crappy app adverts show up.
adamuste's Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/10/18 1:14 PM
I read the reviews. All of them express my feelings exactly. My question is this: does Grindr read the reviews, because the reviews point out what continually gets worse. Grindr, you need to pay attention, because right now, you are a MODEL of poor customer service.
Samwich41's Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/10/18 11:40 PM
Grindr is having more and more obnoxious ads, both for Grindr pro and other stupid games. It’s nuts On top of that, any new feature requires a subscription to pro which is half as expensive as my entire internet bill. They haven’t made real improvements to the free version in ages. It’s time for us gay dudes to switch to another app.
CountryFan93's Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/10/18 11:22 AM

Hey Grindr, Your spam verifier doesn’t work well. I can choose the pic; however there is no way to advance. The “enter” button doesn’t show up in the screen. This is my 2nd time in 3 weeks to try.
RE369's Review of GrindrReviewed on 8/1/18 9:17 PM
After years of people basically begging to update the platform with new features/changes....everything is still the same. Grindr basically ignores people, inundates everyone with ads, raises their prices and probably laughs in the process. It’s a junk app at this point while Scruff has managed to stay current and listen to their users needs/requests.

My app keeps crashing and I had an issue with my profile. I submitted a ticket to their support team for both issues. A week an a half later I have received NO communication back. It’s god awful. When they did answer, it almost seemed like it was automated. The support team wasn’t actually helping me with the problem posed in my ticket. Update: I dm’d their twitter account, and got almost immediate support through that. The process was much nicer, hence the star change

I am so glad we finally have push notifications for the free version. What I’m not glad about is that anytime I’m using the app, I’ll hear the message sound but no messages ever show up. I closed the app once and then i got message notifications so I thought maybe i had to close it to get them. But then I realized that there is no way to make sure. I just wanna see my messages instead of possibly looking like a jerk and ignoring them. Please help. Thanks!

App blows. Constantly bugging out or issues with chats not going thru. Lots of bots.

I bet if I paid it would probably work but f that noise why pay for an app that hasn’t proved to me it can work. But it connects gay dudes with others pretty easily and it’s easy to use so we all still use it anyways

Gt212's Review of GrindrReviewed on 7/8/18 12:48 AM
I would say that up to 75% of the time, messages are not even received by myself or people I send to, and I have tested this personally using multiple devices. This app has privacy issues as well, and there are so many fake profiles that you could simply save their photo and do a simple Google Reverse Image search and it would show you which model or celebrity photo they’re using. Also the image approving staff here seem to be racially bias. If you’re a certain race, not going to say which, it seems like you can’t even post a shirtless picture with pants all the way up to your belly button without getting the photo denied. Meanwhile it seems like certain other racial groups are posing nearly naked, in briefs, and with pants well below the waist. Apple, please, for the good of the LGBT community and for the integrity of your App Store, remove Grindr from iOS devices, it is a disaster to leave it as it is.
cbam24's Review of GrindrReviewed on 7/8/18 12:09 PM
Well the app is good except for the new update the app still crashes on Apple devices so that needs to be addressed.

WPBGuy1980's Review of GrindrReviewed on 7/8/18 11:12 AM
After Grindr finally fixed the issue with how slowly messages were being delivered, there’s now an issue where I’m not receiving messages. I clearly hear the alert that I have a new message, but nothing is there. I know that I’ve also received a message because I’ve tested this with friends. I’ve seen them send a message, received an alert, and yet no message delivered. Grindr, this is an issue that occurred with the app over a year ago. I can’t believe it’s back. How the eff do your developers release new updates with bugs like this? Learn to wait for a release until you’ve tested and worked out the issues!

Limerickcityboy's Review of GrindrReviewed on 7/7/18 9:37 PM
This app crashes migrating profiles from old version. I contacted help on "support" page, and have been IGNORED for 10 DAYS. More detail: OMG I cannot believe my last review was about yet another compulsory update. And here we are again I downloaded version 3.30.0 because of the fiasco that ensued on the previous versions with latency issues. Who even knows what latency issues means? U post it in ur help section with no explanation as to what it is- just we all have it apparently. We are not all techs - seriously: speak in plain English. Anyway down comes 3.30.0 and DISASTER - app crashes as it's trying to migrate data from old version. 5 days ago I contacted support and have heard NOTHING. Now I understand if everyone is having this issue then ur inundated with help requests. But FFS put something up letting us know that u know- or auto respond to app crashing reports. Just say something. So to anyone bothering to read this- COMPULSORY UPDATES should only be forced when u know they WORK. If you can avoid 3.30.0 do. And I notice another review on here complained support was contacting him- if u are support contact me as much as u want. FYI - my previous winge follows. Really annoyed having a forced update again because the last one was working fine. Not too happy about about advertisers sending texts like a normal person. But nice to see the option for an extra 50 people to be added to cascade if u watch an advert. So not as bad an update as in recent times, maybe Grindr are finally getting their act together.
LennyS's Review of GrindrReviewed on 7/7/18 8:15 PM
The developers know that this app is the biggest and that regardless of functionality, people are going to use it. Why did it take so many years to get notifications? Ability to sign out? Now, ghost notifications while using the app. Constantly hearing the new message sound and vibration when there’s nothing. Limited blocks unless you pay ... really? Showing as signed on when you’re not. There are just too many issues with this app to list. But alas, it is the biggest so we’re stuck with it. Maybe someday Grindr will care about the user experience.

I have been a Grindr Xtra memberfor years. Overall, I have had a good user experience. But be forewarned that when the day comes that you need support, you will be all alone. With the recent 2 upgrades in the past few weeks Grindr has completely let me down. The ap crashes as it tries to upgrade the database and I am left with unpleasant choice of deleting the ap and losing all my data. I get minimal support email responses that are probably written by bots. I expected that Grindr would in good faith have taken a personalized approach to my problem once it had gone on for a week or more. But no. Grindr will take your money and dismiss and ignore you should anything go wrong. Such a disappointment for a company that likes to pretend that it is a good faith member of the community.

I’ll be in the app and there’s a vibration telling me that there’s a notification but even after refreshing there’s no message or tap to be found. I hate seeming rude and this compromises that idea. Can someone please help fix this?
mjolds's Review of GrindrReviewed on 7/6/18 8:49 AM
So many glitches and missed messages because they are not coming through. Miss when you press the buttons twice and it takes you back to the top. But all these glitches are messing up the app

I am a paying member of this app, usually if there is an issue customer support usually responds quickly. Been 3 days now with no response, I can send my messages as usual but don’t receive return messages, you hear the message come back but can’t see it. I hope they resolve this soon
Mikshayne's Review of GrindrReviewed on 7/6/18 5:28 AM
Consistent with the new normal of excellence in our lives...yet another devastatingly inadequate app that simply does not work. Click your heels together three times. Delete app. Reinstall multiple times on the off chance the stars will align and the app might actually launch. Oh, but wait.....then there will profiles that show you have unread chats despite having read each one....or at least the ones that actually transmit. I know they’ve only been working on these issues since 2009....I’m sure they’ll be right on top of things.

I think i need my money back because I am about done with this app for good AGAIN THE FILTER IS OFF idk how many times your gonna say that it is not the filter FIX THE APP A week after the reply and sent 2 emails and nothing i will never pay for xtra again and when it runs out i am deleting this app its clear you don't care about your esp customers you reply to a review 3 times with the same reply and i keep updating this and you still reply woth the dam filter what about the messages not being sent as well should just refund my money and ill delete the app today so over it after weeks with issues and still no update to fix total bs when you have people say the same thing maybe you need to release the older version again until it can be fixed
JLER2011's Review of GrindrReviewed on 7/6/18 5:13 AM
I’ve been using Grindr for a while, but over past few weeks, I would hear a notification of a message, but none would appear while in the app. Emailed tech support twice and no answer. It had been working fine beforehand...not sure what they did to it a few weeks ago, but they need to fix it. Not happy since I’m a paying grindr xtra member.

why-a-name's Review of GrindrReviewed on 7/6/18 10:45 PM
If you have a free membership they’ve made it even worse! And you can forget about actually getting any kind of customer service with the free membership. The in app interruptions are nearly constant this app has really become almost unusable. Also they no longer cache your pics. If You delete the app, bye bye pics! Update: I keep getting emails about this negative review and to contact support. Which I did, and got the reply “yes and sorry.” In other words too bad...

And more then half my message will say sent and some delivered
papabear38a's Review of GrindrReviewed on 7/5/18 3:27 PM
1. Design the first and best app for gay meeting in the world a decade+ ago. 2. Little by little screw it up so every update crashes more and more and functionality slowly dies. 3. Lose your reputation in the community so badly you become a running joke while other apps are created to take advantage of your falls. 4. Men bail out of paying for pro out of frustration (including myself twice) 5. The more who quit, the less worthy the app is, less men. 6. Slowly come back to life over years, improvements, functionality all improves, while pop culture starts actually using the word “Grindr” on sitcoms, casual conversation , giving mass free advertising. 7. Be awesome. 8. Send out a survey for feedback 9. Release an update that screeches speed to a total halt (iPad) rendering the app pretty useless again (iPhone is fine) Rinse and repeat I don’t think you all will be forgiven twice.
Zacmiles's Review of GrindrReviewed on 7/5/18 3:25 PM
Wow, it has been well over a month since i was able to use Grindr. Since the update i have not been able to load the app past the logo screen on my iPhone. I have removed the app several times and no avail. I have read comments of this happening and it doesn’t seem like you guys are even trying to fix it! This is so obnoxious and ridiculous on your part!

upset customer 2018's Review of GrindrReviewed on 7/5/18 2:22 PM
I am very disappointed with the app. I got another phone so I had to log in. Not a big issue of course. Until I tried to log in and it said my email was invalid I tried to do the forgot password process and it said that email was not on file or that it sent an email to reset it. I never got the email. I sent an email to support never heard back. I had to recreate another email and now i am not receiving the messages. My phone keeps going off while I’m on the app that i got a message but nothing shows. I’m very disappointed with the app and the service i have received with it. I would have got the Grindr xtra but after all of this. I don’t think so!

Toni 388's Review of GrindrReviewed on 7/5/18 12:44 AM
I make an account, and it stays for like a week or two maybe. Then it gets suspended for no absolute reason, and I can’t keep my account without it getting suspend and I have to make a new one everytime. I’m doing nothing wrong at all. On top of that you have to pay for too much things, and bots bombard me 24/7 and the ads are so annoying.
JNB55555's Review of GrindrReviewed on 7/5/18 10:25 PM
I have been a Grindr Premium memberfor years. Overall, I have had a good user experience. But be forewarned that when the day comes that you need support, you will be all alone. With the recent 2 upgrades in the past few weeks Grindr has completely let me down. The ap crashes as it tries to upgrade the database and I am left with unpleasant choice of deleting the ap and losing all my data. I get minimal support email responses that are probably written by bots. I expected that Grindr would in good faith have taken a personalized approach to my problem once it had gone on for a week or more. But no. Grindr will take your money and dismiss and ignore you should anything go wrong. Such a disappointment for a company that likes to pretend that it is a good faith member of the community.

Despite having a new iPhone, the recent update has terrible performance. Messages take a long time to send. The app lags at just about every point. And crashes occur about once every 3 minutes. Please test your app before use. Crashlytics or fabric are good diagnostic tools to see how your app works if a developer reads this
Cadillac11's Review of GrindrReviewed on 7/4/18 7:17 PM
Since the last big update the app was SO slow to respond for messaging that it took almost a minute just to send a sentence, the latest patch fixed that however the app freezes every couple of minutes and you have to log out then back in, This app used to be really great and I used it over the others because it was quicker to send pics however now with this issue it isn’t and I’ll be moving over to scruff. I’m not sure why every update causes more problems when there wasn’t any issues before the update, don't they beta test these “updates” before release

Here we go again! 5yrs ago we had the same issues of messages being eaten or not arriving and this last update has the same message eating not being delivered bug yet makes notification tone that a message had arrived yet when you go to messages nothing is there! It doesn’t take a mathematician to note that out of the 5.5k downloads why the app still has only 2 star lol. The developer states he welcomes new feature suggestions but doesn’t want to fix the same bugs the app has had for years! Have some dignity Grindr!

I just canceled the rebill on my Grindr Xtra subscription. Ever since I updated the app about a month ago I’ve not been able to get in. Customer support did contact me about a week after I complained about it not working but still there has been no resolution. I’ve even gone so far as to delete the app and downloaded it again, but nothing has changed. You’d think they’d try to make a paid customer happy but no such luck.

This app is a waste of money and time. Go out to meet people or face the Grindr app which perpetuates hate among an already marginalized community. The developers of this app aim only to make money, not caring about the community they perpetuate on here. I’ve been taunted for my feminine appearance, and later for my non-binary identity. This app needs to be stopped and only users can stop it. Please if you’ve had a similar experience speak out and leave a review so we can stop this app or allow for changes that stop hate on this app. I’d give this app 0 stars if I could.

Wen Satingin's Review of GrindrReviewed on 7/3/18 1:53 AM
Likes: -Recent chats indicator -Read receipts -Saved phrases -Changeable app icon Needs Improvement: -Overall app performance especially speed to send the message. -Minimize number of steps/taps to block/report a profile; consider option to multi-select profiles to block at once. -Add the ability to sort/manage saved phrases. -Add the ability to delete recent searches in Explore. -App design could be improved. Check out the Marriott app as an example of great app design: menu and all options are accessible on the lower right of the screen. It allows for one hand (thumb) navigation—that is genius considering the larger phone screen displays these days.

Nobody cares about emojis and it is extremely negligent to include emojis that promote drug use and risky behavior.

It’s literally unreal what I have to go through getting a picture approved. Somehow the same pictures I have on my Tinder are “overly suggestive” and after talking to support about how others (and attaching 10+ pictures to prove my point) aren’t held to the same standards they said to report users pictures which I did just to see if they would actually do anything (which they didn’t). Shoutout to Jackie for doing nothing at all to help me other than to say that I need to crop my picture since I had “skin showing beneath the hop bones.” Which I did and was still moderated. Time to cancel my Xtra and get Hornet instead.

MN-User1's Review of GrindrReviewed on 7/29/18 1:28 PM
Literally got a death threat and a threat this person would show up at my work. Reported it to Grindr a few time even needed to file a police report. All because I told the dude to leave me alone I had no interest. I blocked him like 17 times but he has a ton of accounts, to find out he does this to many many ppl I talk with. Upon research the guy has a probation officer. Grindr ignored all the request for help even police were surprised they never even wrote back. Bottom line grinder does NOT care about your safety, only the $ you give them to be a member (I don’t) go ahead and use the app but don’t pay for a membership until the prove they care about our safety as well. YES the guy is still on there sending threats to others Grindr ignorance or ignoring is amazing.

The ads on Grindr are now out of control and make the app pretty much unusable. Plus, all I ever see are the same ‘ole guys, since it will only show profiles up to 2-3 miles away. In response to developer 6/12 response: Report the ads? You approve the ads. I’m not sending you ads. Open your own app and seethe ads yourself.

The app crashes constantly and is a piece of crap. Time for someone to take over the market and build the next best thing.

Would be nice if the stupid captcha wasn’t huge and took up the whole screen where there is no way to finish the verification

Constantly get profile pics rejected though I’m wearing gym shorts shirtless. I see way more racy profile picture. No rhyme or reason how photos get approved. This app is also a battery hog. Oh and they sell your profile info to third parties. Plus no way to log out. Overall a crappy app

I decided to reinstall the app but cannot remember my password for my login information and when I click the link within the app reset the password the page is blank. Please fix this.

Make it where the gay moji thing can’t be pressed by accident. I’ve sent “kiki” to way too many guys who have no idea what that means.😡

You’re finally making strides in developing his app with seemingly useful features for once... but come on. Constant freezing followed by crashing??? Shows people as online who aren’t and people as offline when they’re on... And STILL no logout button (unless you want to delete the app and lose your chats), no way to save or sync chats, and no way to flush your cache (that useful feature was removed from the app circa 2013).

Decent enough app when it actually functions. The ads are especially infuriating though, I’ve had them play inappropriate things at bad times, but any advertisement playing sound of any kind just shouldn’t exist on mobile apps.

The app is starting to act up again. It “loads” and then closes out of nowhere its really annoying.
