  • Shouts

    By Hottxman459
    One minute advertising in shouts is ok and then the next I get a threatening message saying people abuse it and if I advertise again I would have my profile deleted. That I was disobeying their rules. Yet I only advertise my business no more than every 3 months. We pay u and yet still get threatened. Not really fair.
  • Can't open it in iPhone X ?!

    By Vampire bee
    Downloaded the app and creat my profile and submitted my info after I save the changes the app went close and can't open it anymore. "glitching" ?
  • Disappointed at best

    By Can we not!
    If you’re not white don’t waste your time on this app.
  • Decent but still needs work

    By calaviccial
    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.
  • Ubik

    Awful UI, functionality issues, profile won’t update. I have a profile here, but you’re much more likely to find me at a local bar, or on Scruff, or Daddyhunt.
  • Rip off

    By calpgr
    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.
  • Why upgrade?

    By AvantiItalia
    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...
  • App has changed for the worse over the yrs

    By Soitsme
    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! :(
