I was using it and got a full screen ad. I immediately uninstalled.
Grindr is cheating advertisers and Apple 1/5
By The Dranksinatraa podcast
Here is their game..I've tested it with multiple profiles. They want you to keep downloading the app it makes it look "in demand" but really all they are doing is suspending accounts make you delete the app, re-DL repeat. I made a profile never sent a message Filled out the profile..after 2 days banned. This happened 3 times. Complete scam
By Damon burnett
App opens but when I click a profile it crashes please fix
Bad app. 1/5
By Jose Huet
Developers need 1/5
Why would I pay for an app that constantly glitches, and now I'm told you have to pay to get notifications without having to open the app. This is total bs every of app on this planet wether it's paid or free sends notification. Pull your head out of your butt developers, you know for being the worse gay dating app because you don't care.
By White Male Homophobe
This app is so gay
Horrible app 1/5
App doesn't work if you're not on wifi.
Oh how the great Grindr has fallen. 1/5
It is sad that Grindr's name has gotten so big and now they only favor revenue over quality.
It's sad to think that an app designed for social networking requires you to pay for the subscription to get message notifications.
I understand limiting filtering and search preferences but at least reimplement notifications on the free app.
Grindr Xtra is not worth paying for.
A joke 1/5
There's too many flaws after having this for a year. Why does it still exist????
It won't allow me to verify my account 1/5
By David s Kelley
I download the app , and then create my account . When I leave the grindr app , it tells me to verify my account , but I've not received any email. No choice but to give this a 1 star since it is unusable in its current state.
Getting better 1/5
By Chad Hirsch
⚠️WARNING!⚠️ This app is used by a lot of guys, I mean a lot. This in turn returns good amount of revenue from ads and those who opt for grindr plus. So my advice is to take some of the profit and invest in an individual who has a lot of coding experience to properly design this application. This app has such great potential.
Great asf 4/5
Can't delete taps !!!! 1/5
After they updated their system and I can't delete Taps features with tons of people on that now. How can you fix it Grindr?! Why can't I delete that unwanted taps ?!
Nobody likes me here.
Deleting. There are so many ads that they clog your message inbox. The guys are pretty awful too.
App has gotten worse. 1/5
Had three new notification messages last night and not one message actually showed up. There is no way to even look up who sent them if they went offline or out of range since then. Have had this issue before with Grindr and find it continually getting worse. Also have had people asking me for my pic on more than one occasion. Face pic has always been posted and if I send have been told nothing comes through. Grindr is not worth paying for unless they can fix these issues. Tech support is also not easily accessed through the app.
Updated 7/14/17: so I recently had xtra and cancelled it because of notification issues. Unless I'm actually IN the app I don't get any form of notification with messages. Even if I leave the app up, as soon as the screensaver kicks in no more notifications. Tech support says i have to pay in order to get the notifications, but when I had the subscription it didn't work. Scruff is better app, don't waste time on Grindr let alone money.
Does what the app says it will. Never kicked me out, has deleted my conversations if I delete the app and download and login again. To be expected, but I'm ok with that:
Definitely not in love with it. Trying to go through messages and when you read one and go back to the list, it goes back to the beginning. Then you have to go back and find the message again after you close it. Really stupid. Scruff is still better.
Ok, notifications are behind a paywall 2/5
The only app I have ever used that does this
Scrolls to top of message list after writing message or viewing profile 1/5
Deleting app: Despite update #2, recognized bug persists!! Impossible, Grindr. And no, I'm not submitting a bug report. The above is enough. No--that's the thing--these bugs aren't that difficult to fix. I'm a developer myself and know that you're just screwing around your users.
Don't Waste Your Time 1/5
This crappy app will crash CONSTANTLY regardless of what you do, restart, reload... Nothing works... Absolutely the worst app on the market. Totally annoying and unprofessionally designed. IT needs to go back to school or change careers.
It's dumbfounding that in the year 2017 the developers of this app, year after year, update after update, consistently mess up the one critically important part of any social networking app: reliable messaging! There always seems to be something wrong with Grindr messaging! Since 2009!!!
This is now the SECOND "update" without fixing the scrolling issue we've been complaining about. Why? How could it possibly be this hard?
Pathetic. Fire everyone, delete all files, and start all over again.
Buggy and full of bots. However, it's decent for talking to local guys. Not worth paying for.
Notifications please 5/5
I meet a lot of guys here. And it's cool when I travel.
Updated and now I can't connect. The indicator just spins and spins endlessly.
The updates only seem to expand ad revenue. Now with this latest 'update' you get hit with ads when you click on a profile. I don't mind ads for free apps. But come on. It's flooded with them. And none of the previous issues have been fixed. And now whenever you leave a chat the screen automatically goes to the top of the page. Annoying!
But it is easy to block the ads using a wifi proxy.
Infected with malware and spam spam spam.
I keep getting pop ups telling me my phone is infected and to download a fix. Or that in today's lucky winner and that I can claim a $1000 gift card. Or I just get automatically sent to the App Store to download a suspicious app.
No logout button. You have to delete the app.
Customer support is horrible... when and if they reply to you. Seriously. They never reply.
App automatically takes you to an App Store download.
Shows people as online who aren't online. Only when you message does it update.
Seriously... the only app that makes you pay for push notifications?
Why all these new 'features' when the core of the app is still so buggy?
Garbage, complete garbage 1/5
1) who invents an app you have to delete completely in order to log out on.
2) deleted the app completely to log off and now I can't download it again because it tells me the app is already on my phone.
3) it randomly keeps you off the app and then tells you your password is incorrect. Hours later still no password reset email in my junk mail or inbox
Notifications and messaging. 3/5
I for some reason don't get any notifications for this app and it bugs the hell out of me. I've already checked in the app and in my settings to fix it and everything is turned on.
Now with messaging I click on one of them and it scrolls to the Top every time and that's extremely annoying. Please fix both of these.
Can't open app after upgrade today 1/5
Can't open app after upgrade
Do not download!!!! 1/5
By Thomas Allen Smth
A few mins after buying pro my app will no longer open. Bunch of scam artists. DO NOT DOWNLOAD.
Crashes immediately!!! 1/5
The app crashes as soon as you click on it. It will not open up bc of whichever update that was pushed through. It will not get past the loading screen before crashing every single time.
Latest update useless 1/5
By Chris Huber123
After the latest update, the app won't even open. Tap on the grindr icon, it pops up for a second and then crashes/closes.
Worse with each update 1/5
Complete neglect of most requested features while adding unwanted garbage like Taps and Stickers.
Update now causes immediate crash 1/5
Not loading 1/5
The app keeps crashing when I open the app after the new update, please do something about this.
By The magic 龍
Latest update crashes on launch
Quitting the app when you want to start it 1/5
The latest update is the worst !! I dont know why it doesn't want to access the app!! I tried to reinstall, even i tried to use another account but the same problem repeat.
GET RID OF THE TAPS, also implement notifications WITHOUT paying $11.99 for that. You guys are ripping people off. Also the subscription shouldn't even be that high, unless you can do something like Tinder, where you have an reverse button or "super like", "super boost" option. It's ridiculous. Plus, update the location, to where it's as accurate as it can be. I can't believe I have to review a dating app.
Suspended for wearing glasses? 1/5
Grindr needs to give some notice as to why a person gets suspended. It's easy to report someone, but when your personal account gets suspended for "violating" the guidelines or terms and conditions, it's confusing and unhelpful when they don't tell you specifically what you're accused of. I'm 24, had a face profile picture without my glasses, and I uploaded a very similar picture with glasses. It seemed to be approved, but within a minute of using the act I get locked out because Grindr has suspended me. I did nothing different, but changed my picture to one where I'm wearing my eyeglasses. I've been told that I look younger than I am, so maybe someone thought I was under 18? Or maybe it was someone who was upset that I turned them down and enacted revenge on me. Otherwise, I don't know why after months of using this app I've suddenly been suspended. I submitted a request to Customer Service, still waiting on a reply, but this is wasting my time and irritating when I was chatting with other guys. Grindr, please improve how you let us know if we get suspended what the reason was because you don't seem to give any warnings.
I can't update my info. I can't update my photo. I can't send a message or a picture. Your new update needs updating.
App automatically crashes when you try to open it since last update. Can't get on anymore
Not good! 1/5
Just downloaded your latest update and now I get nothing now when I open the app!
Logging off 4/5
This should have a Log Off within the Setting, because it is not cool to have to erase the app every time I dont want to use it.
Multiple devices 1/5
Slow and glitchy. Can't access all messages on multiple devices. Messages are cached on specific devices.
Keeps crashing after update 1/5
By I'm pretty satisfied yo
I can't open the app now. After updating, it crashes every time I try and open the application
Cannot delete TAPS 1/5
Tapping was already a bother, and the new release doesn't even allow you to delete them. How do you come up with these useless ideas??
By Super West
Too many bots flakes no face profiles there's literally a bunch of other apps that work better
When I try to open the app it closes 2/5
I can't even open the app. It closes straight on me
It's like ordering pizza 5/5
All sorts of toppings! LOL
App won't open since the new update 2/5
