Was never a perfect app, but still better than every other m4m app out there, with Scruff being a close second favorite of mine. It just seems like there are always more guys close by who are looking to strictly hook up and that's all I really want from an app like this. If you aren't subscribed to Grindr xtra, then you can't expect a great experience with this app. Simple as that. I had a free week subscription of xtra a couple months ago and I loved it. Considering purchasing a month subscription to give it another go. Maybe it's just my location, but on Grindr there always seems to be guys looking within a few thousand feet from me. Other apps it seems like the closest guys to me are always the same ones and no one is within like 4 miles from me. And being into older guys in particular, I've managed to come in contact with a lot of married guys on the DL in my town that I've known for years and have hooked up with a few of them. Nothing hotter than that to me!
This I think is the best hook up app for gay men, it has some bugs and honestly is pretty decent sometimes. The problems come when 1 the taps are useless, guys refuse to use it and when you get taps most of them are bots trying to scam, and this is a big problem in the app, the amount of scammer there are like, bots, “porn stars” passing by, “sugar daddies” that want to give you a crazy allowance in exchange of your bank info and other personal data, is just ridiculous, and if you don’t pay extra you have to deal with it cause limited blocking. That’s another thing, 20 bucks for extra and 40 for unlimited, are you nuts? That’s waaaaay too overpriced for unlocking a few options that are not really worth it, I had xtra for a month, and tried unlimited for a day, now both are the exact same thing, why is unlimited so expensive? Cause I can see who looked at my profile that day? And the icon change to gray? Tf? Xtra is expensive too, to unlock a few filters that won’t change anything really, the most useful thing is be able to filter tops and bottoms and see who is online at the moment, that’s it, the price shouldn’t be that high.
Update: it’s still the same, but now it’s kind of funny. 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.
Got a new phone and when I downloaded it somehow I got signed up for a trial for their paid subscription. Few days later 45$ came out of my account. Apple said cant refund because you approved it when you downloaded it. Even tho it says free, and I’ve had the app before and it was free. Contacted them and they said they would be cool with the refund but it should to Apple. Called then back and pretty much said they weren’t going to due to factors that they could not tell me. Which most likely is because this is a lgbtq hook up app. And well is better to shame the horny gays than providing a clear and transparent marketplace that protect consumers from apps that are misleading on pricing. Anyway thank you for coming to my TED talk titled ‘The Day Apple Shamed me for being a dumb horny gay that doesn’t know how to check your iTunes subscriptions every-time you download a free app that might actually turn into a 40$ a month subscription out of nowhere’. Side note: The Apple Rep I spoke on the phone with told me to do this. Literally said you can go on the App Store and leave a comment, your story might help others. So thank you Apple for allowing me to be brave and share my story in this platform. 💁🏽♂️💁🏽♂️💁🏽♂️
My account was randomly banned...as has happened to thousands of other people...for no reason. I emailed back and forth with support and they assured me that I violated their rules but refused to tell me how. At first I was kinda mad because I felt like they were doing me wrong but honestly, this app has become absolute garbage anyway. Every couple of minutes you get slammed with ads trying to get you to upgrade to their pay service or buy some other app. Between that, people trying to get me to give them money for various favors or random people trying to sell me drugs CONSTANTLY, I’m done with this app. Funny note, though. After my account was suspended, Grindr sent me a link to read the community guidelines and there’s a whole section about spamming users and advertising other sites or apps and how it’s strictly forbidden. The HILARIOUS part of it is that you can’t use the app for 30 seconds without them throwing ads in your face or making you watch some ridiculous promotion for their overpriced premium service. GRINDR IS A JOKE and the people that run it know that. It’s a shame that so many users feel the need to put up with their nonsense. You can miss me with that crap!
