Price spike?! 1/5
My notifications don’t work and after the latest update they’ve increased their membership prices. Not paying for it, the app hardly works well and for the price of these basic features is complete robbery.
Not a dating app anymore... 1/5
This is not a “dating” app anymore, but merely an ad revenue machine. Any developer or person with an ounce of UX experience would know this. Plenty of other options out there besides this. I hope the company starts to re-evaluate its strategy to balance ads and functionality. Right now it’s just garbage.
Full screen ads that make you wait before closing are extremely annoying. This is why people use ad blocking VPNs. It wouldn’t be so bad if you people could figure out how to get all the spammers off the network. Every time I open the app it’s either a message to go to some website or a full screen ad from Grindr. Can’t wait for the day another app totally takes over in popularity. Your days in the top spot are numbered.
Tried to download Grindr last night and I can’t get past the robot cramp it just repeats and cycles.
Too many creepy old dudes
Now a junk app 1/5
Grindr used to be great, but now it’s a minimum of 3 pop up ads when launching then another for the first profile you open, then 3 spam messages in your inbox then more pop ups as you browse profiles. Quit being so money hungry or you’ll drive away all of your customers.
Not the best... 2/5
I get 2 separate Grindr apps...
Restore Purchases Added 1/5
When are you adding a log on off option and what are you doing to stop SPAM accounts?
App has huge misses 3/5
Chats disappear whenever you have to re-download the app or sign in. Reports aren't taken seriously. Other than that it's about what you'd expect
Fake apple ads 1/5
They should pay attention to their advertisements I just had an advertisement that spammed me with call Apple support you have a virus and even when I’m close the app and it kept coming out hopefully they will monitor closer of the companies that pay them to advertise
Delete taps 1/5
Does anybody know how you delete profiles that have tapped you? So stupid they have this option but there is no way to manage it. Taps are just stupid other than blocking the profiles that tap to you I have no other way of removing them
Horrible app 1/5
Absolutely horrible app, I would never consider paying for such trash! And not to mention they keep raising the monthly price!! How??? I don’t see at all, the free app is not even worth is so save your time from even downloading
Ads, ads, everywhere Ads! 1/5
By Sven Fridtjof
This app has turned into an insane barrage of pop up ads. Click on anything and ads pop up. Nooooo thanks.
I keep getting harassing messages from the same person who hides behind an anonymous profile. I keep reporting them to Grindr and I block the profile. Week later another one and another. I keep reporting them and nothing gets done. His app needs to either find a way to prevent this type of harassment or be shut down. I am not rude abusive or disrespectful to anyone on it nor do o send rude messages. I’m close to looking into legal action if they don’t
Corporate greed run amok 1/5
Click on a profile forced ad. Post a profile pic, denied....meeting Instagram or Facebook standards....
The app is slowly dying 1/5
I hate having to deal with missed messages whenever I get back online. why not include notifications? Everyone seems to be either fake or steal others’ pictures and use them as their own. Why not add a feature where a profile can add several pictures so that there is proof that that person is who they say they are. i got kicked out the app several times and I don’t even know why. My messages after re installing the app don’t come back and whenever someone gets offline their profile still says they’re online for about 10 minutes so it’s kinda hard to tell if they’re online or not.
This app gave me crabs! 1/5
I cant believe that they let this happen to a classy guy like me. One minute I'm at an opera in high society. Then I downloaded this app. Next minute I'm getting banged in the bathroom of a Chucky Cheese and I have to dip my balls in gasoline to get rid of these wretched things!
Seriously... what’s up with all the spam messages / profiles. Rein it in.
Bots Schmots 1/5
Finally deleted app after receiving 5 messages from bots in one day. No other app has this issue and “reporting” the offenders as spam is a joke itself.
It's all we've got. 1/5
I wish this app was never created. The gay community is truly trash.
You can get labeled as soliciting for networking, but they have drug addicts buying and selling meth in this app. I wish there was a “report sexual harassment” option for people who constantly make new profiles when you block them.
I would just shut the app down tbh. Its just... so so low.
Updated with an insane price increase and ever other tap brings up an ad. I find myself using it less and less these days but I won’t be paying ever again unless the price goes back down.
Fresh Faces and Taps are the dumbest thing ever! Most fresh faces are fake profiles. People creating new ones over and over again after you block them. Taps... seriously? If you can't write a sentence don't use the app!
Shady company! Just gets worst the more successful they become. App constantly takes you the App Store so they can get ad money. (Even if you don't press anything) Messages disappear! Annoying siren sounds from ads. They're constantly trying to get you to pay for their overpriced service when the app barely functions as promised. Customer service is the worst. Don't even waste your time contacting them.
Absolute garbage 1/5
The push for more and more ads (also via in your DM) has literally crashed their app. Now just simply opening it and trying to tap anywhere crashes it. What a POS
Unchechecked spam/phishing messages 1/5
Grindr has had issues with spam messages for years and hasn’t done anything to stop it. The last year or so has been messages trying to get me to think someone is impersonating me on a certain website. So far today i’ve gotten that message from eight different blank profiles and it’s only 9am.
Ads are out of control. 2/5
There’s just straight up porn now?
This app is garbage. 1/5
By Universal Adam
First of all, the fact that you need to buy premium just to get notifications is obscene.
Secondly, just today, in the last 3 hours I’ve gotten 7..that’s right..SEVEN bot messages asking if my profile was on another app! This is insane.
Great if you are looking for....... 1/5
Hookers and drug abusers! Every other profile is either an opportunistic hooker or meth head, I just counted 27 profiles that either had T in their profile name and or person looking for money. Ads are insane as are the fake porn star profiles that try to get you to pay them money, Grindr doesn't care about any of these issues!
App too many bots and loading problems 2/5
By Jay guy89
App has an increased amount of bots plus it’s doesn’t refresh properly creating connection problems. This is as a Xtra subscriber it’s proving to be difficult as you end missing messages. I haven’t seen any fixes for this in any updates lately.
This app is nothing but ads! 1/5
When every other tap triggers a pop up ad there’s a problem. Perhaps if they addressed the functionality issues instead of just adding more ads to make up for lost users they might, MIGHT have an ok app. Well at least one that might get them 2 stars...
There are way better FREE apps without the annoying and intrusive pop ups.
They are hustling for paid members now 1/5
Grindr folks need to introduce group chats based on cities/borough/towns, BUT How hard can it be to get this app right? It has been around before most of the apps that provide the same service, but yet again there is always something wrong. Messages get lost, while talking with someone you might get notification that he sent you a message but nothing came in. Now the new headache is they are trying to gain xtra members, I received over 20 spam messages, so I’ve reached the block limit, and they are just piling up, means I am already collecting next block limit. Funny thing is I am a paid member with other apps similar to this, but at least I pay for what I get. I’ve been xtra member ages ago, but it is just not worth it, not enough features to paying $8 for.
By draya love
Why am I not receiving notifications anymore ever since my Free Xtra trial ended? I didn’t know I was obligated to pay for a notification
The photo approver 1/5
By Bae CupiD
I just want to say that as a model , I think that whom ever is in charge of the approval for photos being changed is doing a horrible job and disregards the art of expression , there is no nudity in my pics yet still I find it being rejected time after time , please fix this problem or hire someone who knows how to judge a picture correctly thank you & good day .
pop up ads 1/5
The pop up ads have gotten so bad!!! If I could give it zero stars I would.
No support 1/5
It’s been over 7 days without a response to a support ticket. I’ve been double changed for Grindr Xtra and it only loads the basic version. I’ve open three support tickets and commented/messages on Twitter. Awful app support experience.
BaD App Performance , intrusive , fake online statuses 1/5
the chat always seem to be cut off when using on android or ios . is it a bug who knows!. besides that is very intrusive , to manny splash pop up screens on the free version , just a really bad app it self . as for the members on it lets not even start some upload x rated pics and don’t get taken down mean while i upload a shirtless pic at the beach and get block . lol . the handling of the app is very BAD . there should a negative star rating for this . Delete it while you can . even when you close the and log out it still say you online for about 15 minutes and when it says u off line your profile still visible for about 1hr . i guess is to make it seem there a-lot of people on your area . and these spam bots damm it and splash adds . dammit
Please update it 1/5
Can update this app and make it free so everyone can enjoy it and no need to worry about trolls and homophobic people.
Nothing new 1/5
They've done little to curb bots. Even when I report one I still get messages from it. Perhaps they work together.
If you're not slim or sexy you "bulge photo" will be denied by the moderator. They only allow hot guys to be seen in their underwear. I pay $12 a month to see 6x the guys--not really, the list refreshes so frequently and takes you back to the top. Common complaint they've don't nothing to fix.
Not user friendly 1/5
By N Cullen
No one on this app is very nice. Just full of stuck up men who care about looks, body image. One guy told me he prefers guys who are fit to be intimate with. Other guys are just for friends/chat. 100% of the time people will ignore you unless you look like a model or jock. I’ve been on this app for quite a long time. Out of the guys like that. I’m pretty sure I’m the only guy on there that has a heart of gold. The other guys have hearts of stone and cold hearted.
It can come on handy
So many apps, garbage app 1/5
This app is crap.
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.
11-11-17: I agree with another reviewer here, it’s like there no one on the other side actually looking at the reports. You guys paying more attention to those who don’t complain and pay monthly to potentially get rejected because of “no fats, no fems, no Asians, no blacks” FOR REAL? That’s that epic malarkey homie!!
Downloaded this because I was new to the area and I wanted to meet someone that can show me around. There is no decent guys in here and guy that claim they are decent they are giving you bull. This app it’s free but worthless. Guys don’t waste your time. It’s better to meet guys where you work or church.
Won’t open 1/5
App won’t refresh who’s nearby it shows just as black.
Worst app for cheating ever 1/5
Ended my relationship! I’m sorry Thomas take me back
Dont buy membership 1/5
By miguel mustard
I deleted my profile on the grindr app because i had no way of canceling my subscription, dont buy a subscription because they will trap you. No way of canceling no way of calling to cancel no contact when you email. Too much trouble this app is dead socially. Use scruff
charge to elimate ads - scam! 1/5
been a paid member for years. forced update to new version and no longer recognizes membership even when I extended it again. scam!!
Probably the worst app I’ve used 1/5
The app is obviously not native to iOS because it looks like a web app. It has constant issues, forcing me to have to quit and restart the app.
The worse part is the insane ads. There’s 3 pop up ads when you launch the app, banner ads at the bottom of every screen, a full screen ad when viewing a profile, a full screen ad when blocking someone, in-line ads within messages (at this point I don’t believe that they’re bots), etc.
It’s a shame that no other app has caught on. I also don’t mind paying for an app like this but the prices that Grindr wants to charge are absurd.

By Silver Diamonds
STOP! 👏 WITH👏 THE 👏 DAMN👏 STUPID 👏 POP👏 UP 👏 ADS👏 WHEN👏 CLICKING👏 A👏 PROFILE!!!!!! THIS👏 IS 👏 NOT 👏 YOUTUBE!!!
It’s gotten better- good job 4/5
Ok still no push notifications BUT, I notice more guys come up and more search filters since the last update so it’s only fair to update my rating. Keep up the good work, still too many spam bots though.
Beep beep 1/5
Even with sounds turned off and my phone muted this weird high pitched beep often happens. I can’t think of a worse app to have this problem as it has happened to me in Public and caused a lot of embarrassment. Needs to be fixed ASAP
