User reviews of Grindr

    Few bugs, and some spamming here and there, but still the best app out there.

    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!

    Pros and Cons

    Grindr is an extremely app to use and is usually pretty accurate as far a location and quick with updating profiles. There are several concerns. There are many setting limitations and privacy concerns. The app allows spammers and bots to breach often. Accounts are set up with emails rather than phone numbers. This allows spammers, bots and people that harass people to create new profiles very easily. This would stop with registration required by phone numbers as most people only have one phone number. The service support is rather awful. There is no way to contact service support directly. Service support would rather you place an idea for other members to vote on. This is a very poor practice. Other apps make it very easy to contact a service support members and they will email you directly and on a personal level rather than a can response. The service rendered by Grindr is that equal to an app that is free rather than the ridiculous high charges Grindr charges annually.

    Not sure

    I feel like Grindr is the easiest & most convenient of the dating apps. Adam4Adam is decent, has been around for a while, can have much more detailed info; but sometimes has a weird crowd. Sometimes attracts the users on their home computer, who don’t own a smart phone… not saying smart phone owners can’t be shady. Honestly, one of the main complaints I have as of late, with Grindr, Is that using voice text within the app seems to work a little differently than if you were using it anywhere else… As in texting, Safari, Chrome, etc. The words are horribly incorrect the majority of the time. Like 80%. lol. I don’t know if it’s a different software they use or what, but so much editing has to be done if I use voice text. I don’t always want to type if I’m chatting with someone. Also the app is incredibly slow moving and loading during “peak” times. Even if it’s on and I’m not using it, it heats up my phone so much. Sometimes it’s so slow, and the voice/autocorrect is so pathetic, I give up. But I still use it...

    So many ads.....

    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.

    Overrun by ads

    Grindr has gone way downhill and the latest new “Unlimited” membership updates only make it worse. The worst problem this app has now, BY FAR, is that the ads on it are out of control. We are used to seeing ads, we know it’s a part of the trade using free apps - but these things are obnoxious to a new level. Sometimes it seems like every other time you click a profile you have to watch at least 5 seconds of a full screen pop-ad before you can do anything else. It’s so annoying, I’m tempted to download an ad blocked onto my phone. Next, are some of the new features. “Viewed me”, in particular, is off-putting. Why is Grindr now showing people when we view them? Not cool!! Did you just check out your ex boyfriend’s new shirtless torso picture? Well, now he can see that he made you look. Got a crazy ex roommate you’re keeping tabs on? He too can see that you looked. It’s not cool. Literally the ONLY thing this app has going for it anymore is that it is well known. But considering how far downhill it has gone, between bots, ads, and annoying new features, I think it’s about time to search for greener pastures. Thank you, next.
