  • Lacks Basic Security and Functionality!

    By Elijah.Luis
    I understand that when designing an app for only hookups, it is very difficult to verify whether or not a person is real, especially because Grindr has to actively filter anonymous profiles for bots or spam on the daily. "No pic = no reply" is a standard in every bio. This app also has an extremely simple interface, and you can browse profiles very quickly to connect with people. Yet most gay social networking apps require simple ID (photo) verification. In fact, most popular messaging services have cloud servers to back up their messages automatically, rather than lose them each time the app is uninstalled (and this app has probably been uninstalled/reinstalled more times than there are gay people on Earth). You can manually choose to back them up, but the process is lengthy if you have tons of messages in your inbox. Finally, those membership fees are relatively extraordinary just to find a short-term connection. No one is going to want to pay for even a month if their urge to hook up is only a day old. Tinder and Scruff, although "relationship" apps, do have the prospect of connecting and maintaining a long term relationship. This is different from Grindr, which supports anonymous and short-term hookups, but the app should still be monitored carefully to make sure people aren't being catfished or spammed to death. In summary, I think Grindr is an incredible app that still has a lot of potential to create successful hookups. But if you reduced membership costs, eliminated spam accounts with photo verification, and automatically saved messages - I would actually be coming back to this app every day. I also think that it's time for Grindr to have a makeover, but those are just useless opinions. I'm hoping someone over at HQ actually takes this comment seriously and makes improvements to this classic and well-known app. And please don't tell me to email my feedback, you're several thousand One Star ratings in too deep to ignore these concerns now. (that's the tea, sis.) #MakeGrindrGreatAgain!
  • Ban happy

    By Kaleb Conner
    This company bans for no reasons. It’s bad enough the messages are being scanned and stored in China servers (proof of this is out there) Outside of that the app it glitchy and laggy. The fact they want 28 dollars for a month to month for extra is laughable at best. Do yourself a favor and just go use Scruff. Better quality app and guys.
  • Message delivery sporadic

    By Trucrew
    Have had this XTRA APP fir at least 3 years. At least once yearly notifications become sporadic . I like to use Filters . Tech Support usually suggest turning off filters . That never solves the issue . ( Why offer a FILTER option if it is suspected that hamper notifications?). The only solution is to delete the APP , reinstall , in which case you LOSE all Chats .

  • Key word

    By bigcockluvr

  • Forced Read Receipts

    By #gurlbye!
    The geniuses at Grindr have now forced read receipts on every user paid and unpaid so that everyone will know when you have read their message. Now users can get mad at you if you don’t immediately respond after reading their message. GREAT IDEA GRINDR!!!! Thx.
  • An absolute waste of time.

    By AgentLloyd
    Too many catfish guys and people who are not honest or serious about meeting. What a Waste of time.
  • Scrolling issues

    By (: ME :)
    Scrolling in the newest versions is janky. It feels so icky when it jerks around and won’t stop scrolling when I expect it to. Please fix.
  • Problematic app with awful support

    By SeanInCA
    Grindr has an extensive history of being a problematic app with a litany of issues that merely Grindr ignores, e.g., lost chats, crashes, GEO issues, constant spam, to name just a few. Oh, good luck if you need support! You will be lucky even to have a problem correctly classified, and a better chance of seeing Jesus in getting your issue resolved. I know this, I am still waiting! With so many different choices for dating apps and those choices increasing all the time, you would think Grindr up their game. Simply stated avoid Grindr, check out other apps, you might be as pleasantly surprised as I was.
  • Lousy Website

    By Sexyguy1112
    At first it was easy to sign onto it consistently logs me off....and sometimes does not even let me log on. Also...many messages are lost. They should have some sort of message box so that when people instant message you...the message is not lost. GET it Together Grinder company. I wish you could tell who is viewing you. I dont like that to erase a Tap, you have to ho to Tap field.
