IdoReviews!'s Review of GrowlrReviewed on 9/9/18 1:24 AM
How many times can you block the same person seriously you need a better policy and If someone deletes there account they are locked out for 30 or 60 days!loke some other apps before they can create a new profile and if they use a different email then you might need to go by the picture or something but this is annoying that people can do this esp when you don’t offer unlimited blocks because if they delete the profile you don’t remove them. OK CAN WE work on the sound effects now clearly you can either have the sound on or off whether my phone volume is up all the way or on mute so how about you fix that so that if i turn my volume down the app goes down with it instead of on and off that would be fantastic

Geiokami's Review of GrowlrReviewed on 9/30/18 6:07 PM
GROWLr will randomly send you a notification saying you got a message, when you go to check it no matter how quickly you do it there is no message. They are using that to get you to open the app and see ads.
forgot2think2day's Review of GrowlrReviewed on 9/3/18 9:09 PM
Now it's $9.99 a month?! I love paying for missing messages, notifications that are delayed and a very antiquated platform. Time to cancel.. And I've been a member since 2009. Other apps have at least slapped a fresh coat of paint on theirs. Growlr is the same ugly color too. Time to give up and go elsewhere.
bawdybear2000's Review of GrowlrReviewed on 9/3/18 1:05 AM
This app has afforded me wonderful opportunities to meet hundreds of quality men, a transman, and even one woman for fantastic sex all over the World. The downside is that if you don’t want to pay for the pro version, you’re forced to sit through numerous repetitive and annoying ads.
Vance Risner's Review of GrowlrReviewed on 9/3/18 12:06 PM
I don't like the pop up ads for games. I don't like pop up ads at all. I don't want them. Thanks for auto-filling that. But there’s more! Why can’t you create a filter that allows single men, like myself, to weed out the guys that are in open relationships, or in a relationship in general?? I don’t want to see there profiles. I only want to view single men. Why is this so difficult???

Soitsme's Review of GrowlrReviewed on 9/21/18 11:55 AM
Chat doesn't work universally between devices. Terrible! Older: Adds holding you hostage until they show the x. Back on the day when someone unlocked, you saw all pics. Now you have to have a paid version to see. Taking away feature is never a plus. Old review: Back in the day this app was a sigh of relief for those is us who did feel like we fit in, in those young jock, smooth twink apps. Now this app has become exclusive plus and plus plus size men only. Even if your not a bear. As long as you are big. Otters are out. Otters and their appreciators have little to no representation any more. Squeezed out by the chubs. And Crazy expensive fees now! :(

It is unacceptable that this app's ads play out loud when the phone is on silent. One of many examples of the developers' evident belief they own this demographic and can take their customers for granted.

ILLBDAJUDGE's Review of GrowlrReviewed on 8/4/18 4:31 AM
Growlr use to be a great place to meet guys for conversation, friendship, hook ups, LTR etc... in my opinion you’ll now find yourself in a forest of sleeping bears. Or baby cubs looking for daddy bears to take care and raise them (not happening). You’ll have a better chance finding that growling bear in your own backyard. I thought hibernating season was over? Growlr is still pushing the same ol boring version from the early 2000s. With very, very little change. This app is in need of a major facelift. Moving on... of course after I delete this app.🐻 🏳️🌈🙅🏽♂️ I will check back in a year or two and hopefully I’ll be faced with some exciting changes? Probably not.

It’s been 5 months settling at my home in Los Angeles and to be part of the local Bear Organization there was great. Friendly people to interact at the Pool Parties and my closest friends there were very supportive of me. I’ve finally learned that using GROWLr for Relationships isn’t working for me, but casual hook ups and dates are doing well. Keep up the good works GROWLr. Bear hugs, Woof and Grrr!!!

Pro: It does exactly what it does. Talk to amazing people and if your lucky enough you can hook up. Con: the only thing I don’t like that needs to be fixed is my matches. They need to bee in the same state and at least 5-10 miles away not 1256 miles away. Other than that it’s great and easy to use. Can’t wait to see the next update.
jungman59's Review of GrowlrReviewed on 8/1/18 4:19 PM

Mickley O'Mackley's Review of GrowlrReviewed on 7/5/18 7:43 PM
What used to be the front runner of the gay dating apps in 2013, is now coming off as one of the waning and most desperate, annoying apps on my iPhone. The constant barrage of pop-up ads is beyond annoying, and leaving me to consider dumping this thing & going somewhere else. $9.99/month for “Pro” and you STILL get annoying pop-up ads? I think not.

Why are people who havent been online in more then one hour showing up as active in the local grid? Hopefully the owner of the app will do some improvements on the app. Doubt it but at least i wont pay for it anymore.

The app is an ok app. It gets the job done. However the non paid features are extremely annoying and the limited blocks you get, I think, can even be dangerous. If someone is harassing you online and you can't block them, then the only option is to remove the app from your device and I do that think they hats what you would want, right growler?

Things are working out, especially after my move back to Los Angeles, California from Macon, Georgia. The guys in the Eastern part of our country were too reserved and biased and I wished GROWLr could offer more. Now that I’m back in Los Angeles and soon to join the Bear Organization there, the network is unimaginably great. Keep it up GROWLr, and I’ll let you know of suggestions. Bear hugs and Woof!!!
TreatyTreat's Review of GrowlrReviewed on 7/10/18 3:48 AM
What’s the point of reporting someone for harassment and bullying and stealing pictures of their profile doesn’t get removed? That kind of defeats the purpose of the feature, don’t you think? I’ve had to delete and redo my profile a few times because the same crazy person continues to bother me...

I was a full paying member but had decided not to renew. I have sent in info before to support. I am using an IPad and when I push in the thumbnail to open a profile, the entire program crashes and shuts down. And it still continues. So, I have chosen to not renew and may end up deleting if the pop up get to be too much.
Padrino5983's Review of GrowlrReviewed on 6/9/18 11:52 PM
My biggest complaint about using this app is that when trying to use it on multiple devices, messages do not cross over. They only stay on that particular device. I assume it’s an easy thing to fix. Seeing that it’s the same account on two phones. Both should be able to see the same activity.

Suddenly, there are now commercials playing when the app is opened. This definitely minimizes my time spent on here. Do I need to turn off the phones volume every time I go to open this? Seems like they’re trying to remove all of the non-premium paying members.
GRRBEHR's Review of GrowlrReviewed on 6/28/18 2:55 AM
This app has been unstable for years. I’ve been a user since 2011. Same problems always. First, the interface is awful. You have to go in deep to do things then backtrack. Why can’t they update it? Stability is a mess. If they gave me a penny for each time it says I have a message and then it’s lost somehow, I’d be a millionaire. I understand some lay person by some miracle stuck out and became the owner, but can’t you hire professionals? App crashes all the time. Anyways. Praying for an alternative for bears. That’s the only reason you are around, there’s no one else.
Daveglass's Review of GrowlrReviewed on 6/28/18 11:51 AM
The free version is decent. The pro version gives you more, though. I just have the free version installed and it seems to work well. Search function isn’t pretty... tends to return nonsensical results (eg, I use the “contains” function to search for “Trucker” and I get 1 result (literally someone who has that as their screen name). But if I use the “Begins with” function that person doesn’t come up)! Also the location function is very poor when searching.

Aht1003's Review of GrowlrReviewed on 6/27/18 4:29 PM
The purpose of the app is great but the app is not functional on iPhone 8, Plus, or X. It seems the app is not working well with iOS 11. I am constantly having to refresh the “Bears” page because it won’t let me search different cities continuously. The app also has been freezing and/or crashing unexpectedly, it always takes forever to load and sometimes my messages or the messages from other users are lost once the page finally loads or even after I’ve closed the app and restarted it. I still receive “Shouts” even after I’ve opted out of them. The app is great in terms of meeting guys but the interface and the functionality is not up to date with current software versions of smartphones.
2390fg's Review of GrowlrReviewed on 6/27/18 2:59 PM
What crap servers are being used? The app never works. Constantly failing. This is an ongoing issue since the app was released. Never a fix in sight. Yet you ask for a monthly subscription for basic features.
S Banane's Review of GrowlrReviewed on 6/27/18 2:53 PM
This is the most dysfunctional app ever. It constantly eats messages and has loading issues on a continuous basis. Charging $10 a month is criminal since the app functions so poorly much of the time. I’ve been a member since 2012 and the price for pro membership keeps going up with little or no improvement on its functionality. The concept is great. But it fails to deliver quality for an app that charges money for pro membership. Please do something about it!

DKelsey's Review of GrowlrReviewed on 6/21/18 7:50 AM
This could be a super app but has irritating features. On the plus side, it accommodates a lot of space to say what you're looking for (unlike Grr) and doesn't censor what you say (at least my experience). Unfortunately, a lot of guys don't bother to fill that in or say very little what they are looking for. The choice of "auto" messages to let guys know that you're interested (like Woof, Grr, Hey Handsome, etc) is extensive, which seems unique to GROWLr (although a few choices are, frankly, a bit nellie or inappropriate). The free version only lets you see three photos. And if one of these three is a video, you can't see that either. The search function is fatally flawed --- if you put in more than one or two criteria, it often comes up with very few or no matches nearby (even in San Francisco!). Apparently the search is set up to use AND instead of OR, so the more criteria you put in, the less likely there will be a match with ALL the criteria. Example, if you want guys who are Top or Versatile, you have to do two searches. Otherwise, you get only those who listed themselves as Top AND versatile. If you put in, say, 5 characteristics (and there are a lot of choices), chances are you will get zero matches. Other apps don't do searches this way -- for good reason. The travel function is mysterious. It will show you're new to an area but only for 48 hour hours. If I'm visiting somewhere for a week, I might want guys to know that, not just for 2 days. It should just let users set if they are traveling or not and if it detects they are back at home, then it could automatically turn off. The popup ads in the free version are kind of stupid for most Bears -- typically silly app games for teens. On purpose?

Using a local dns proxy one can view the myriad of tracking scripts and advertising nonsense that this app loads. To make matters worse the pop up advertising is among the most intrusive ads I’ve ever seen. They play awful annoying sounds and use shady tactics to force users to click, such as moving the close button to hidden areas. Use at your own risk.

jesucio's Review of GrowlrReviewed on 6/10/18 3:42 PM
Any app that puts a "blocking" feature behind a paywall is not interested in the safety of its community members. Blocks should always be unlimited so that members know they have an option to stop unwanted harassment.
calaviccial's Review of GrowlrReviewed on 5/9/18 12:16 AM
The Blocked feature still needs some kind of proper implementation. It is recommended to go back to the profile of the person you blocked to unblock and free up spaces, but that doesn't work when the person has deleted their profile YEARS ago.
calpgr's Review of GrowlrReviewed on 5/5/18 4:09 AM
I was already paying for a membership and out of nowhere my subscription was down graded. Now, in order to "enjoy" the features I thought were premium, I have to pay more. Not that I'm cheap, but some notice would've been nice. Another lame thing is that in order to cancel your subscription, it is an involved process. Almost like they're hoping you won't bother with it.
AvantiItalia's Review of GrowlrReviewed on 5/5/18 1:01 AM
Why would someone pay for this app? You can’t have chats across multiple devices. On an iPad you can’t scale your picture to fit in a thumbnail. At least once per week I’m contacted by a brand new profile where that someone so wonderful ends up being in the military, and looking for money. Any attempt to ask the creators of this app is met with a response of, “It’s Apples fault, hopefully when they update the iOS, it’ll resolve the problem.” Last time I checked, Apple doesn’t update their software to cater to Growlr...

You know what would be awesome? If I had to click close on 4 ads before I could use the app. Apparently my wish was granted. Yay me

I’m no longer using this app. The ads are loud and hijack my phone
jtbeers's Review of GrowlrReviewed on 12/15/18 12:48 PM
I am so upset. I can’t get my profile pic public. Does it take time? Does it have to go through review?

You guys should create a new app for twinks that wanna hook up. Just an idea.
pommrenn's Review of GrowlrReviewed on 12/15/18 12:48 PM
Every time I log in and check the free version, an advertisement for another downloadable game comes up. It’s annoying.

Basic app. Look and feel could be better and more features.

Too many obnoxiously loud ads.
INWDC's Review of GrowlrReviewed on 12/15/18 12:48 PM
Aside from the dated interface, message delivery is really spotty on GROWLr. And you won’t receive any indication of the problem. There is often a delay in messages or they never get to the intended person. At this point, the ads that hijack your entire screen are the least of their worries. Since the core functionality (to connect with guys near you) doesn’t work, growlr is useless.

3DogSound's Review of GrowlrReviewed on 12/15/18 12:48 PM
If you open Growl, good luck signing off. Your profile stays on the grid for as long as they need it. I prefer more control over my profile and when it is showing as online, I should actually be on the app. Yes, the members are often very handsome men. It’s like any site, at first it seems so great. The conversations can be fun, the men are usually kind, sometimes funny, and rarely looking for anything in person.

BTucker730's Review of GrowlrReviewed on 12/15/18 12:48 PM
This app is user friendly and fun, when it works, however 50% of the time, I send a message and get the following "Alert, the GROWLR service is temporarily unavailable". The message doesn't send and I have to retype the whole message. This is a pain. Especially if the message is lengthy. I have to waste time and copy and save messages before trying to send. I even pay for the premium service and still get this error. Typing messages from a cell phone isn't as easy as on a keyboard. It's time consuming and to have to retype it....it's unacceptable. Not a happy user of this app. Now I find out they are charging me twice...what the fu@c????

Just joined but meeting and chatting with some Awesome People. Men my age didn’t have all this we had to Go Out and chase.This definitely saves time and when you meet up all the “IN TO” and other preferences have already been discussed.
cjm1199's Review of GrowlrReviewed on 12/15/18 12:48 PM
Growlr has this Hotel.com ad. That ad is so long I’ll never use that company. The Pro renew won’t accept my cc. Bad. Growlr needs to stop being greedy.

Lots of nice people. Great chats.
lsuebu's Review of GrowlrReviewed on 12/15/18 12:48 PM
It’s an app where people judge each other’s appearance and meeting or dating is the last thing on their mind. People create fake profiles so you can pursue a “not person” and then delete that profile so the idiot who made the fake profile thinks they have a chance with you. It’s a joke.
Woodstockdad1's Review of GrowlrReviewed on 12/15/18 12:48 PM
I used to really like this app, but being unable to use the grid view now makes it cumbersome. At least give us the option.

seattleboi1982's Review of GrowlrReviewed on 12/15/18 12:48 PM
Kinda would bear much better if the app support rotation. Especially if you use a keyboard on the iPad Pro.
samvawter's Review of GrowlrReviewed on 12/15/18 12:48 PM
This app is so far behind the times. I’ve decided to stop paying for pro because the developers clearly don’t care enough to update the app. It needs a complete redesign. The interface is unbelievably ugly. The bear community should have a beautiful app we can be proud of. Quit it with the brown and yellow color scheme. And quit focusing on features no one uses! I’ve used this app for years and have never heard of anyone using the “meets” feature. And the “my feed” feature benefits no one. Just simplify the app, and make it more user friendly. If this continues, I’m considering leaving the app all together. Other apps are regularly improved. So should growlr.
AMcKWolf's Review of GrowlrReviewed on 12/15/18 12:48 PM
I like the user base of the app but it looks like dirt, the ads are just annoying and sometimes don’t even work (meaning you can’t close them even when they allow it) and for some dumb reason you can’t rotate the app on the iPad. I’ve spent about a grand total of 17 hours in XCode and I’ve made 7 apps that can rotate on the iPad AND the Plus/Max model phones. It takes hardly anything to do.
Tadesko's Review of GrowlrReviewed on 12/15/18 12:48 PM
I don’t understand an app that states these are your “matches” and the majority of those matches are people that are already in a relationship! Ugh!!!! My profile specifically state no polyamory or attached guys.

Not happy about this at all. Was charged last week for one month of service and again today for the same month. Would appreciate a response.

I bought a month subscription for the Pro membership, they charged me, and I never received the pro membership. Thanks so much for taking my money and not giving me what I paid for!

More than half of the guys are in relationships or married! They need to make a version only for single guys to meet other single guys!
LarryJamieson's Review of GrowlrReviewed on 11/1/18 11:01 AM
I get it that you use Ads for people who do not play for the service, but now those Ads make noise that can’t be gotten around or quickly shut off. This is a fantastic way to stop people from using the app. Mute the Ads, it makes it impossible to use discretely.
TingTong&Dudley's Review of GrowlrReviewed on 10/7/18 6:43 AM
It’s not an intuitive and easy to use app. The crowd is the same on all the others (they can’t control that). The interface is not appealing.
GayNoMore's Review of GrowlrReviewed on 10/7/18 5:13 AM
This used to be one of the more respectful apps. Of course the status quo eventually reared it’s ugly head.
AaronW94's Review of GrowlrReviewed on 10/30/18 4:54 PM
Used to great, until they started installing ads that ignore whether you have your phone on silent mode or not. I really want weird 70’s porn music playing for an ad for a straight dating app (really??) when I’m in the middle of my office.
stonic's Review of GrowlrReviewed on 10/30/18 1:20 PM
The extremely intrusive ads play loud music even when a phone is set to silent mode.

BullaloBill's Review of GrowlrReviewed on 10/25/18 2:55 PM
Ads that open up with full sound are going to get me fired. My sound is usually near silent, then pop-op blasts the entire room. Once again, ad opened with full sound. Once again checking mail at work. Totally unnecessary.
Adiv's Review of GrowlrReviewed on 10/22/18 6:23 PM
The UI is very poorly designed. Clicking on a thumbnail brings up a page in which the top half is reserved for the profile main image, which rarely shows the entire image. You have to tap the image yet again to get a full screen view. The profile page should present the same image as the thumbnail only bigger. Beneath the profile image is a horizontal bar of thumbnails, one of which is for the image currently occupying the top half of the profile page. It’s not space efficient and it’s redundant. Those repetitive icons should be replaced by a button with an ellipsis, thus freeing up valuable screen real estate. Also, the icon placed at the lower right corner of the main profile image suggests editing when in fact tapping it brings up the profile’s feed entries. Additionally, this icon usually fails to work. Instead of displaying the feed it brings up the full screen main profile image unless tapped with a forefinger. And the feed includes items for when a user has added a private photo, which is pretty useless to know unless that user has unlocked his photos for you. The toggle controls are too wide and too close together vertically such that you have to be very carefully to select the correct one. The UI is outdated, cumbersome and in desperate need of an update.

iPod Toucher 69's Review of GrowlrReviewed on 10/2/18 5:01 PM
Probably the whitest crowd on any of the Gay dating apps. It's really sad that there is such a tiny representation of anything other than white guys. The location search function usually doesn't work. Randomly launches full screen ads or pops up with spam where the only way to get out of it is to close the app. Obnoxious "features" are rapidly making the app not worthwhile.
bcstxboi's Review of GrowlrReviewed on 10/18/18 8:03 PM
This app is the greatest I’ve ever used, and the primary reason is because most of the profiles are people just like me instead of just a handful, and it’s NOT dominated by twinks and people looking for a fit and trim body. I’m a large guy. And I’m finding that most of the guys messaging me are looking for just that. I was practically ignored on every other social app I tried bc I didn’t look like a ken doll, and that takes a toll on your self esteem after a while. With Growlr, I had several people messaging and chatting with me within just a few hours after making a profile. I can’t believe the response. If you’re a guy with a few extra pounds (or you like them that way), and you’re sick and tired of the attitudes from the people looking for the perfect athletic body, I highly suggest you try this app. I think you’ll be surprised.
