Getting worse and worse 1/5
By Mike v los angeles
This is the most dysfunctional annoying app out there and I can't even understand why people keep using it.
It has become a very intrusive app in the form of malvertising and spamvertising, most likely because of the lack of profit, yeap... The app now relies in extremely heavy advertising because is not profitable anymore, which is a good thing so people finally stop using this crap and disappears or is bought by another more competent company.
Loading problems 1/5
Upgrade doesn't work and support doesn't answer 1/5
I've tried upgrading multiple times. Was charged on my iTunes. Features don't work. Emailed support. Get nothing. Unacceptable. Perhaps your new boss Mr. Yahui fires all of you. You'd better thank your lucky stars if he just reorgs.
Just ads 1/5
The amount of ads make it almost unusable. Every four screens. In your inbox. I wouldn't buy or use the service of any advertiser just in principle.
JUST ONE THING 3/5
This app should let me know when someone adds me to their favorites in an anonymous way just so I can have a boost of confidence you know? 😂😩🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾
By Aelias Hughes
Recently if left open for a short period of time the app will start making this loud beeping noise comparable to a smoke detector going off.. not sure if this is just a me problem or if others have it too
Taps is whack 1/5
NO TO "TAPS" ! Lol stop
Ads Galore 1/5
While the app isn't the slow mess it was for so many years, they've turned it into an ad delivery program: ads when you open, ads at the bottom, ads when you swipe, ads when you block and now ads in the mailbox--no it's not a guy interested in you, it's just another ad..
Terrible app 1/5
Bugs galore with horrible customer service. Grinder is so frustrating it's not even worth the time.
Inbox is flooded with ads 1/5
Grindr, you need to separate ads and messages. Think about the user experience and not just your bottom line.
Sad app ! 1/5
Sad !! not vary good app I keep getting longed off !!! Not Worth it
This app is absolutely useless. It is technically a "hook-up/dating" app for adult gay men but yet you can't post a photo that some random moderator deems is too risqué?? Also, if your not the chiseled ab Adonis looking type of guy your photo seems to be put under extra scrutiny...it's ridiculous since I'm slightly heavier set and I want a pic of me in my skivvies (it doesn't show any nudity) and yet my profile pic constantly gets rejected. What worthless junk and with every app update it seems to get even more worthless. Piece of garbage if you as me...
Great for meeting guys nearby 4/5
I wish Grindr was like Scruff where you never see blank profiles, a photo of just a cat or the sunset, or collages. However, every time I delete the app, it's not too long before I download it again. Grindr simply has the most guys nearby to meet and is the most popular. I'm sure they're making changes to improve the app for us gays. I must say the app today is a lot better than the Grindr I tried 6 months ago. I've read a lot of reviews about the pop-up ads. Even I'm not a fan of ads on any app. Pay for Xtra - I think it's worth it and you don't have to deal with any ads. Cheers!

This app will disappear off my phone the reappear after I have already locked it and unlocked my phone. Fix and it'll get a better rating.
The Smoke Alarm Noise 1/5
I have been using this app for over 5 years. Recently there has been an ad that makes a loud smoke alarm noise. I didn't realize it was this app and went to the Apple Store, had to restore my phone to factory settings and also got woken from sleep once by this alarm sound. It went off without me even touching the phone. I refuse to download this app again until this ad is gone!!!
It's better than most sites 1/5
So many advertisements. Too many pop ups and a loud beeps sounds off periodically on its own so annoying.
my account keeps getting suspended over and over by someone in the area reporting me for no reason.
It was all good until this update came around! Way too many bots & the tap button is completely unnecessary. Just fix the bots & spam problem please!
Zero if I could 1/5
The new tap feature just gives unknown photo less creeps more ways to bug you rather than just sending messages.
Also when you delete the tap, it deletes all messages from that person too! Dumb.
What is that LOUD BEEPING SOUND??!!! 1/5
I think it's an ad, but for the last few weeks I've had what sounds like an alarm go off when using the app. It's an EXTREMELY loud beep... never mind that I have the sound MUTED!!! Also, no key presses or anything gets it to stop (well... holding the Home button and summoning Siri stops it, but it goes right back when Siri is done.
NO APP SHOULD CAUSE THIS BEHAVIOR!!!!!!!!!
Another dud 1/5
Grindr finally added a new feature! Too bad it's the least useful idea ever: Now you can tap someone. And it crashed my phone, forced me to log back in, and threw. 10 ads at me.
This app is a MESS! 1/5
Time to fire your boyfriend's brother who thinks he's an app developer and higher a professional to clean up this bug ridden disaster of an app. Considering how old this app is, it should be running flawlessly. Random spam ads popping up and beeping...are you kidding me?! Clean up this garbage.
Just awful 1/5
What's the deal? Every time I've tried to use this app today it crashes, when I try to read/respond to a message or just tap a profile it shuts down. Scruff is ten times better, more features for free users and it actually works. Don't waste your time! And, the ads are getting ridiculous.
Loud beeping ad 1/5
Grindr has gone downhill over the years. There is occasionally a very loud beeping noise that sounds like a construction vehicle backing up. It comes from an ad within the app and stops as soon as you close it. I hate grindr now. Some updates even turn off your music when you open the app. Honestly, are the devs morons?
Could make it better. 3/5
Need to make it more like scruff. Need to be able to write a longer bio in your profile and have more pictures available for people to see. Would be cool to manually change the location that you want to see too...
Bots Everywhere So Beware! 1/5
There are so many fake profiles on here and you can tell my the low quality of the pictures. Grindr started a "new faces" feature but all the new faces are exactly how I just explained it, pixilated and response from bots who want you to click on a link. Ransomwhere? I think yes. Use at your own risk.
Smoke alarm 1/5
This app is causing an ad that plays a smoke alarm sound often in the middle of the night. It's loud, and annoying, and a little concerning especially while you are sleeping!
So laggy and slow 1/5
If I could give it 0 stars I would. It's so laggy and slow and never loads messages in a timely manner. So annoying!
Worst App Ever 1/5
Literally the worst dating app on the face of the planet. When you delete the app from your phone, it deletes all messages and blocks even though you hold an account with them. They now send you advertisements as messages so when you think you got a message you don't... Here's a hint... maybe if you gave members a reason to pay 10 bucks per month they would actually pay you. Bugs galore. Bots galore. Lame sex-obsessed superficial people on this app. Good bye Grindr and good riddance.
Please get rid of ad that gives random loud beeping even when ringer is off and volume down.
About every 5th time I go into the app, an MP3 file starts playing through my music player on my iPhone that sounds like a fire alarm.
After years, it's still buggy as ever 1/5
Just when you thought grindr finally stabilized, it booted me out of the app. When I logged in, my profile and photo were from 2 years ago but my messages and likes were current. Get your developers together, Grindr. Your market share is held only from name recognition. Anyone can redo what you do, but with a more fluid interface.
Malware? Spyware? 1/5
Getting really bad. I'm not sure how these updates are getting approved for the App Store. The app has been crazy slow lately, I'm not getting messages, I'm getting a TON of popup ads that either won't dismiss or come right back up, and one that came up made my phone sound like a smoke detector and didn't stop even if I closed the app! Had to turn my phone off. Not sure what's going on but Grindr is really getting shady.
So many pop ups, almost unusable anymore 1/5
Pop ups, advertisements, stupid ads telling you you've won a prize and click here are constant now
Adds too often and too pushy. 2/5
By Fortunae Mortem
I understand making people see adds if they don't pay for extra, because all apps do it. But this app is freaking ridiculous with them. If it force opens an add while I'm typing a message and I never clicked on it, then it's too much. If an add opens up and redirects me when my phone is literally sitting on my desk and nobody touched it, that's too much. Until this is fixed, I pretty much hate the app.
Malware Problems 1/5
By Jean Christian
On top of everything already wrong with this app, there is a big problem with malware on this app. It works fine for a little bit and then I get a fake government warning about how my phone is doomed and hear a high pitched sound. I've deleted the app and will consider redownloading if you fix this.
Grindr ads that sound an ALARM 1/5
At least once a day Grindr emits a high pitched loud alarm sound. It sends the house pets running! I have to close the app to get it to stop. PLEASE FIX THIS!
Just google "Grindr alarm" to read all about it.
Ad riddled garbage 1/5
Obnoxious full screen Ads that take over the whole screen every 5 seconds
Worst app out of all of them in that regard
And no I won't subscribe, there are other better apps I do subscribe to already, you bring nothing to the table that others don't do better
Weird beeping and ads 1/5
This thing set my phone off and it sounded like a smoke alarm, when I turned the screen off and on again there was some random URL displayed on the what's playing screen as if music was playing. Pretty weird and I'm guessing it's some bug with ads. Hell it could even be some weird exploit and my phones completely owned now. Who knows with these things anymore. Sketchy.
This is the 2nd time I've been suspended in a week and the 1st it was lifted because they found that I didn't violate the rules and not even 2 minutes after logging in I was suspended again! And let me say I didn't even message anyone in the time period I logged in and got suspended, I emailed but they were like "im not lifting the ban". And honestly I'm done with this app. Awful service
Pop up adds are making this app too annoying to use 1/5
Banner ads are fine, I get it. Gotta make money some how. But these pop up ads that take over the app every 2 minutes or after each block are becoming excessive and make the app almost unusable
There are so many problems but I'll just say lately, the amount of advertisements and times I'm automatically redirected out of the app to the app store is getting unbearable. I'm deleting this today, Scruff is better a thousand times over.
Bait and switch 1/5
I watch a video to see more profiles, but then the app can't load them. Great. Grindr gets paid for my watching the ad, and I don't get the reward.
Also messages can take a long time to go through if they make it. I thought we solved that? Oh wait, we didn't because you've been working on this very issue for the life of the app. Too bad you can't master the basic feature of the app.
Needs improvements 3/5
Would be better if a premium user could log out of the app to go offline rather than having to delete the app every time
Ads with sound 1/5
Despite having volume off on phone, the ads make noise. Huge issue using app discretely.
Absolutely horrible!!! This app is worse than ever 1/5
Ads pop up every 30 seconds. Ads are full of spam notifications. I even had an add that played loud beeping for 10 seconds. This app used to be alright, but it has completely been taken over by useless crap and fake people. Not even worth being free.
No unpaid notifications means I won't engage with your app until I remember to do so naturally, which is between 1-3am or when I'm pretty drunk. So, that's obviously severely limiting your ad revenue.
Stop trying to monetize an app experience nobody wants to pay for. Scruff and other competing apps offer much better functionality for far less cost. Either adapt or be replaced.
The ads are out of control and so are the spam bots! Jeeze
Awful app 1/5
U guys have to be joking 10 ads in my messages in 1 day. Give me one reason not to delete this App? I would give it no stars but it won't let me.
Can't Delete Individual Messages 1/5
Since the update about a month ago or so there seems to be no way to delete individual messages. Neither sent or received. You used be able to "long press" on a specific message from within the string of messages, then it would pop up to delete (just like in Apple iMessage) and you could select multiple messages or just that one then press the trash can icon. Now all that happens is the message or photo gets greyed out from a long press, but that's it. No option to delete the message. I'd like to still be able to delete single photos or messages I sent on my end.
