Having problems with my notifications
Way too many ads on the unpaid version 1/5
By D Blizzle
Can barely go one tap without having an ad pop up
I used to really like this app but honestly now Id rather meet someone in person. I feel like whenever I do anything on this app in the free mode I’ll get an ad and I mean I’m that person that loves the block button but not when I have to wait for a 30 second app and what I hate the most is the bots. I can’t comprehend how there are so many. Literally 4 in 20 minuets. That’s ridiculous. If I wanted to reenact “HER” I would have downloaded the boyfriend simulator on my phone. Lastly I hate the fact that you have to pay to get a push notification... like really I have to pay in order for me to get a buzz on my phone..
Losing messages again. Still bad battery 1/5
Latest updates causing me to lose messages again. Just today I had 3 messages in the morning that I read. Opened the app up a few hours later, the thread is still there but the latest messages were missing.
And I pay for this?
The battery is still awful.
Ok you fools. I’ve reported a spam user several times to you all. Still have gotten 10 more txt from the spammer. I am beginning to think it’s you all sending spam to inflate your already dismal site. I am going to sue the hell out of you
Profile photo issues 1/5
By Luke Cyrus
I wanted to re upload a profile photo I've used countless times on Grindr since I started using and now they are rejecting it. I see way more controversial photos then mine but I guess since I don't have "Grindr extra" anymore, the moderators don't see the need to take my requests seriously. It's a gay hook up app. If I don't have trouble posting my picture to Instagram or facebook then I sure as hell shouldn't have a problem posting it to Grindr.
You pay for what? 1/5
I paid for my Grindr Service. I tried updating my acct. The info never updated. So I deleted my acct to start over and now it thinks I’m on a “free” acct but when I try to upgrade it says I’m already upgraded. It shouldn’t be this difficult to use a hook up app. DO NOT BUY PREMIUM. It’s def NOT worth it.
Not good at all 1/5
By Patrick A Hudson
This app should be deleted people dont even communicate on the regular and then all theses fake bots keeps hitting me up daily this needs to stop and then no one be online like it says they were logged of a long time ago so whats the point on chatting with someone when there not even online bad service thats why i gave one star i dont like it at all
Would be better if my messages actually delivered instead of them only saying sent for 2 hours until it finally delivers my message to a person only like 500ft from me. This app needs a lot of attention and needs to be fixed before I recommend this app to anyone!
This app is evil, wants to milk you for profit 1/5
If you want to see how a struggling company desperately tries to squeeze every penny out of you at your expense download Grindr!! They make the user experience as miserable as possible in a desperate attempt to get you to buy Grindr premium. Do not give in to these scam artists!
Rip off 1/5
By I paid for this!?
It IS free for the first two messages after that you have to pay $9.99/mo. Get this if you want a FREE 1 week trial just pay $14.99! Worst hookup app. Trust me, I’ve tried ‘em all.
My notifications don’t pop up at all. Not even the number count on the app. Gotta keep checking app
TOTAL CRAP DON’T BOTHER 1/5
100% Chinese owned now — they have censored and deleted my profile four times and I am a professional writer and have never been able to figure out why there was nothing remotely out of line with even one word. And the app has become even more greedy and aggressive and it’s free version with regards to advertising. Delete this crap-app from your phone and move on.
Lots of underage kids on here 3/5
Can you please do something about this problem it’s really annoying
Love Grindr! Where I met my boyfriend. Great place for guys to meet!
Love the new update 5/5
The new update isn’t bad. After I figured out what it’s used for I was loving it! Thank you grindr!
Delayed messages 1/5
Fix this ridiculous problem and I’ll get a subscription. It shouldn’t exist it’s 2018. And it causes a lot of drama and problems.
Absolutely horrible 1/5
Profiles constantly suspended because they do not monitor trolls that report profiles out of spite, G rated profile pics reported, profile content is a joke. Tons of spam messages. This app needs an overhaul and new employees running it. Complete garbage.
False advertisement 1/5
By Jackd member
This free week thing that you guys advertise is false and I’d like my money back !!! You advertise for a free week and I end up paying for a month.
It’s sad 1/5
I try to take my pic.. before I delete it.. it wouldn’t let me delete it.. it’s a waste of time to used it !!!
Grindr continues to delete user accounts with no warnings, even those accounts of people who pay for Grindr extra and they are not given any money back!! Grindr doesn’t give warnings, changes and removes things in user profiles for options they offer such as your HIV status, if you’re on prep or not, if your single etc. several times my profile has been moderated and items removed such as those stated above. I don’t understand why Grindr has to delete SO MANY profiles . All that does is cause the user to create a new account. If the user is bothering someone else all the other person has to do is simply click use the block feature and your problem is gone, simple! The pop up ads are annoying but I can deal with those.. the lack of privacy offered (or not offered ) by Grindr is sad, nothing you say to any other user is private and can and is recorded by Grindr.
Purposely the worst app 2/5
Grindr is effective for hooking up provided the men around you take an interest. Because it does do its job I decided not to rate it a one star, however the same issues that exist on the app persist despite the various updates. Their are still bots, the app is slow to load and now there are more ads than ever. I’m convinced the free version is garbage on purpose so you decide to pay. Paying isn’t a bad idea considering the app is far more enjoyable once paid but a monthly subscription? That ridiculous. The developers at Grindr are pimps for that and if you pay the subscription you have agreed to be their hoe.
Bait and switch 1/5
I watch the video to see 50 more profiles and then guess what... the app can’t load them. Imagine that. Grindr has gotten paid for my watching the video and I don’t get the reward. A total joke.
Needs work 3/5
Urgently needs a search engine for names , that anyone can use! Free or paid!!! We should all be able to search if we lost old chats and ppl we liked
I didn’t know dis waz gay chat
Great app if you like ads and the app not being able to find your location 🙄
Mostly fake profiles 1/5
Soooo many fake profiles
Too expensive 1/5
Obligatory 1 star for being so expensive. This app could be a much better example of the gay community by being affordable and working to be the best product. Instead it’s just expensive and barely doing enough to keep people around.
Bad to Terrible to Worst 1/5
The app had always been bad as it was. Now it is terrible. Ads, ads, ads, and more ads. Nothing more than a money hungry app chocking you with countless of pop up ads.
Now the lovely greedy people over at Grindr want you to pay to upgrade your account in order to remove the apps that they are already making money off. Like I said they are money hungry. It is all about the money. Who cares about the users or the community. Money, money, money.
Once again, the developers of this app have failed. Ad’s keep appearing each time you open the app, click on a users profile. The new “explore” feature is a POS. It doesn’t even work like it should.
Great app 5/5
By Kik chief.queef
Always find the right guy to blow me
Why was my account suspended 1/5
So my account got suspended for no reason. Like what gives. I put up with all the bots and spam and even the creepy keeps that no matter how many times you report them their profile still stays.
Spamming App 1/5
Poorly designed app only serves to serve spam and cruddy ads.
You need to hire new moderators 1/5
I change my profile and always get rejected and yet i see others with similar body parts posted going through. I would never pay for this kind of lousy and biased application. Hopefully, i would never download it again.
Bluffing and Flake Central 3/5
By Don't Censor Me
If you are looking to meet up with anyone on here you first should prepare yourself for endless hours of 🐂 crap and the censorship as well as the people who report the littlest things will amaze you. Don’t waste your time.
Ads galore 1/5
ADs everywhere have ruined the experience of this app.
Grindr does nothing 1/5
I have written and reported this guy from Grindr who constantly asks younger guys to have sex with him in exchange for money and Grindr does absolutely nothing about it, kinda like improving their app, they do nothing. Hey Grindr, I have every message I have sent to you about this guy as well as his chats. I will be going to the police and I will be filing a report on Grindr explaining that they support and harbor criminals, drug dealers, and prostitutes. My father is a lawyer and he is working on the case right now. Grindr you are not going to get away with this. You have allowed your members to be robbed, raped, and murdered and you do nothing about it, well the law will be doing something about it and I hope you get shut down. I also will be telling Apple about Grindr’s criminal activities and that Grindr is not a good app for the Apple platform. I have everything documented, you all are going down. ENJOY!!!!
No TAPs 1/5
The new tap feature is awful it's completely useless and so annoying. Please get rid of it or fix it so that it doesn't come up as messages. I hate it
Why do the notifications and messages don’t match recently? It says I have 16 messages and I only have one. Something is wrong please fix
A horrible app that only exists because nothing is much better 1/5
At this point Grindr is a bit of a joke, the random ads that pop up when you click a profile, the messages they send you that are also ads, the amount of spam profiles, the invisible ads that hijack you speakers and play loud beeps or the iPhone text sound. The list goes on and on for how terrible this app can be and how it is run at times. Luckily for them there is not much else in the market that is better and they’re a brand that is still mentioned in media because if that wasn’t the case maybe they would have fixed anything by now.
Help plz there is a crazy guy on here 5/5
By MR RANDOM 1234
There is a guy spreading false rumors about me and I had blocked him because he had said that he had wanted to beat me up and rape me, now the reason why I know he is spreading false information is that some other guys are messaging me about this. He is doing this because I said I didn’t want to do anything with him and he got all butt hurt and said a bunch of bad stuff, I don’t have screen shots of the messages because I thought it would be over with if I just block him but that didn’t work..
Stalking nightmare 1/5
So a couple years ago I met up with a couple from Grindr, afterwards one of them was overly attached so I cut ties with them, but after blocking the profile I found to my horror that he made a new profile and started messaging me from it, I would block that profile and a new one would pop up. I pulled my profile picture and all of my information to hide myself from him.
Two years go by and I see about 8 different profiles from him show up, he occasionally messages me from them. Finally I report it to Grindr, what do they do? Ask me for my profile information and tell me to report and block him, so I do so for 6 months.
It’s like they don’t actually keep an archive of profile reports to reference, it’s just a feature to make you feel better for reporting someone but they don’t actually do anything about it. After a lengthy email exchange with their automated service I have gotten nowhere with my stalker’s behavior.
A new profile turns up, and he’s still searching for me. I’m leaving the platform, because they have done nothing to stop him. Avoid this app entirely because it’s a stalkers dream!
I get it’s free 1/5
By Silver Diamonds
But even YouTube has less ads than this thing.
Every tap is an ad. What was already a pretty lacking app is now just a shell for ads. It’s unuseable now. Definitely an app that appears to be in the waning days of its existence. Horrible experience.
Sneaky app 1/5
At random points this app will pop up Apple Pay so you can spend $50 on the subscription randomly on this app. Grindr is trying to force you and Trick you to purchase a $50 subscription.
If you want an app that undermines the gay community, what it stands for and hopes to become. Welcome to Grindr. Guys on here are the worst of the gays, spend 5 mins on this app and you will understand.
Ads getting ridiculous 1/5
Last few versions have been more and more buggy. Notifications of new messages not coming through now... Ads forced every second profile view on free app now..
way to many pop up adds now ... by the time the adds over the persons profile has disappeared
Pretty much any tap you make in this app blasts you with an ad. Open the app? Ad. Click a profile? Ad. Open a message? Ad. GREEDY.
New feature was introduced in this version of the app. Now you get alert tones for the ads that sound just like alert tones for my phone. These sounds play even when my volume is turned off and always turn off my Music.
Constant crashes 1/5
Polluted with excessive ads. Uses massive amounts of data. Makes sounds even when mute is on.
Not Cloud based so where are my messages that were on my mobile device but not my tablet? 3/5
Currently the app is not cloud based so the chat history does not sync up to all mobile devices. This along with logout and login control would make the even better.
