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!
Update: app is still terrible. Traded one set of problems and bugs for another. Messages show up late. Sometimes minutes after logging in, sometimes not until restarting the app. Can’t see who’s actually online from your messages unless you click on their profile. Opening messages often shows the question mark on images but you can see them if you click. Profile photos and text not load. Really just a bunch of awful bugs that make the experience of using the app pretty bad. All that for $25 a month? 🤮 Really glad I paid for a year of xtra. Wish I would’ve saved my money. Shame on you Grindr. The app is terrible. Profiles won’t load, photos won’t load, can’t block people, can’t reply to messages. Messages don’t appear until force quitting the app. Messages say a user is offline, then when i check their profile, they are online. Get “connecting” over and over and the spinning wheel of death. Contacted support - they are “known issues” Seems like when your app doesn’t do anything it’s supposed to, it’s kind of a bigger problem and you may want to fix it soon-ish. This has been going on for weeks. It’s fine if you have a free app. It’s not fine when you have lots of paying customers. You owe people a refund for the crappy experience we’re paying for.
I have been using this app for years since it first appeared. In the past couple of years or so their quality and service has declined drastically to the point that I foresee the end of this app. Which honestly it needs to happen already because this app is full of garbage and the people who run it are useless, if there even people. I think when the Chinese bought this they not only ruined the app but tarnished the image of the gay community. Using the app is a nightmare. Way to much advertising, fake profiles, prostitution, people who are mentally deranged, drug dealing and usage, and I even reported minors being sold in human trafficking, simply disgusting. A cauldron of low life degenerates. Not only that there randomly banning thousands of profiles for no reason. Some claim spamming, funny how they throw at you every moment some bulls$#t product you don’t want or need. When this app crashes I’m going to celebrate. From now on I’m going to strictly meet people in person. Burn Grindr burn! Update: I love how they “try” to have customer service by responding to people’s reviews. If they actually fixed their issues they would have long ago resolved them. Just scroll down and you’ll see their generic responses to ex Grindr users., if they cared they would change things simple as that. Grindr your a joke.
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.
I understand the need for advertising. However, the number of ads I am forced to watch is asinine, considering the content I receive. It’s really not rocket science. Grindr is a gay dating app for men. I should be able to find single men. I should have the ability to only see single, not married, not exclusive, not in an open relationship, cis-men. I don’t seek out people in relationships in real life. Why would I want to online? I’m all for inclusion. Women are great. My mom and sisters and many friends are women, but I am not trying to date a woman or a man who looks like a woman. I should have the ability to see only people who don’t have vaginas, never had a vagina, and isn’t dressed like someone who does have a vagina. Bots, spam.....whatever you want to call it...... I would estimate that at least half of the messages or “taps” I receive are not from a real person. It’s really quite bothersome. A cute guy taps. I say hi. The bot thanks me for responding, then says he isn’t getting my messages and that I should text him, then sends some phone number. When I mark it as spam and try to block, I can’t because I’ve used up all my blocks just trying to see a single cis-man who isn’t wearing a dress.
