Great once you get past Flakes and Liars
Grindr Needs Major Improvement 1/5
Unfortunately Grindr has become mainly spam bots.
They also ban your account for no reason and do not email you they did this. You just try logging back into app, and it says you were banned. Even after contacting customer service and asking what the exact reason was that you were banned… All they tell you is you violated policy and “as a once time convenience”, they went ahead and removed the violation from your account and reinstate your account. They will never tell you the exact reason and when contacting the customer service everything seems robotic.
On top of all of this...there are always technical errors which don’t even allow you to use the app properly.
With all of the issues that Grindr presents...their pricing structure is way out of range for what they offer!
Great app!! 5/5
Def. a good app. to find cool guys.
Paid profile still gets bots like crazy 3/5
Can’t see what I’m typing. It’s showing as white.
It’s really good. 5/5
By jphn john
I wish it’s just more than a hook up website.
Great app 5/5
Always find someone to hang out with.
Grindr’s Grand 5/5
Grindr’s is a great site with lots of guys on anytime! That means a bunch of guys near wherever you are whenever your on!
It ain’t dating 3/5
Grindr is a platform for advertising and sales of memberships that also helps gay men find hookups. There are abundant fake profiles and plenty of catfish.
And now I must come up with a unique nickname to post this review. Ok.
Good luck guys
Not super satisfied with community standards 1/5
I’ve had several photos kicked back, like a torso photo that was “sexually suggestive”
Although every other photo has someone’s chest, torso, or even one person sucking a banana.
Frustrated user 1/5
In comparison to similar apps, Grindr doesn’t deliver the same level of options unless you agree to pay a ridiculous annual fee. All other apps for less money allow you to go Stealth and respond to guys that View you without harassing you to upgrade to a more expensive option. I like the option of being able to View and Read profiles while maintaining my profile in the public room. This option is available on other apps for the upgraded membership without having to pay to go to yet another level of membership. Disappointing.
Come On, China 2/5
These female & trans bots are just ridiculous. Knowing Grindr is managed by policies that would use these to try and goade users into buying Xtra, I'd much sooner quit Grindr altogether and use an app like Jack'd or Scruff than give the same people swarming my feed with "fembots" ANY more of my money.
These bots are irritating, dishonest, and frankly, probably give a lot of guys on here a false sense of what community they're joining by trying to come out and meet other men. It's unhealthy and unprofessional!
The worst 1/5
Junk, junk, junk app!!!! A lot of fake accounts and shady escorts!!!
Janky messages 1/5
Sometimes they’ll deliver your messages sometimes they won’t. Not really any rhyme or reason to it. I’ve reported the issue before and they just say they’re working on it. Makes me think it’s either purposeful or negligent.lole I came by type my review because the font is white on a white background
Wayyyy to many fake responses
Not a very good site. Grindr is just OK!
Very Poor Service in Saudi Arabia 1/5
By American Guy in KSA
Even with having VPN on gaining access to the app is a challenge. When you’re lucky to log in your connection is likely to be dropped. I’m not sure if any of this is due to the local government working against the app; or if it’s the app itself. Either way it’s annoy AF. Other apps work MUCH better within Saudi without any issues of accessing or dropped connections. (5) x 👎🏼 for this app from me as it operates in Saudi Arabia.
Not always so bad... 3/5
By Uncertain Citizen
I’m rating Grindr today because some of the other reviews have stated ‘banned or deleted for no reason,’ as a reason for a 1-star review. Since I could not find one review showing Grindr’s redemption for banning members for no reason, I thought I would be the first.
I too was banned and when I first realized it I was opening the app and it stated something along the lines of ‘this account has been banned’ with a support button to click on beneath it. Of course you find yourself scrolling through their Community Guidelines reading endless generic explanations as why you may have been banned, or why if you have been banned no one at Grindr is giving any information as to the actual reason for being banned. So I searched high and low for a contact email for a real live human being to ask why this has happened, and found the help-desk for Grindr and ’the bot’ replied verbatim what the community guidelines stated.
Somehow I got lucky and got a return email later on from Grindr ‘Customer Service’ allowing me to state my case and after emailing them back I got re-instated.
I was shocked but thrilled because I had just purchased another month of Grindr Xtra a couple of days before I was banned.
So it’s not always so bad...I’m one real dude who got re-instated after being banned....Thx Grindr for allowing me back on....NOW if you ever ban me again I will be back with a vengeance to review you folks in not such a great light, but let’s just hope that never happens.
Blocked from my account 1/5
I did nothing wrong, and still got blocked from acct, am very sad that this happened
Too many robots and scams.
Not as good as it was 2/5
There’s mad spam on here and it seems like the more u pay the more fake profiles and bots u have to deal with
It’s ok 1/5
I don’t care for the women on there at all I thought it was a gay app not a straight app and you want to make money from people on here well then kick out the women ok
GRINDR Developers are trash 1/5
I sure as hell would never pay for a subscription from theses CS! Anyone can report you without showing proof and then you’re out your subscription fee. I say we ban GRINDR from the App Store!
Pricey for minimal features
Great App 5/5
By oregon shopper
This app is so easy to use! I love the block button and the new features are good also.
“Easy to use”? 2/5
I’m only writing this review because I kept getting a pop-up asking me to rate the app that completely made the app unusually. The irony was, the pop-up asked if I found Grindr “easy to use.” No, no I don’t.
By Punchinello III
Still a few issues to be worked out 3/5
By Nice App - but too much $$$
It’s gotten better over the years but there are still some looming issues that need to be addressed.
1) bots and fake accounts - this seems to be a problem that hasn’t gone away. I use other apps that don’t have this problem. It’s getting harder and harder to discern the real ones from the fake accounts. For the amount of money i pay into the subscription, i would expect more of an effort to have this issue addressed
2) push notifications- i like that push notifications indicate when a message comes thru. BUT, sometimes the notifications come up for messages that i have already read.
I do enjoy the new updates but the fake accounts and bots need to be looked into. I hate to keep paying for a service that has yet to combat this problem.
Refresh refresh refresh ... what is wrong with these developers 1/5
I use this review process to report bugs as their official bug reporting is crap. Whoever develops this software feels the need to stick refreshes all over the place so that features are unusable. Lately the chat messages refresh to the top every time you receive a new message. Imagine if you have 10 -15 pinned chats and get a message every minute. It’s a crazy experience to read your messages as your constantly scrolling down find the last chat
Keep alive no longer works so if your at home an want to leave grinder open for an hour it will loose connectivity after 20 minutes if you don’t click around ... so annoying
I’ve been using Grindr since the beginning. It’s been bought by a new company but still to this day it has the most horrible annoying frustrating bug that is probably the easiest to fix. IT AUTO REFRESHES! It is the most frustrating thing on this earth. Scroll around in Grindr and every 4-5 minutes the developers decided that they must refresh the user list and scroll all the way to the top or away from where you were viewing. NO OTHER APP DOES THIS! It is not needed. Every person in this world knows how to refresh a screen on a smart phone. With the thousands of people using Grindr it probably takes up many extra servers on the backend Just having this auto refresh. No one wants this.
It does this in favorites as well. I have maybe hundreds of favorites in my list ... if you scroll down and look at a profile and then look at a chat and then return to the main favorites screen it ALWAYS refreshes to the top. It’s the most annoying bug in the world. I’ve reported it for years. It’s probably 1 line of code to fix! Fix this and I will give you a good review
SPAM everywhere 1/5
Update/Reply to Developer
Very smart comment, about reporting spam bots. I didn’t write this review, because I don’t know how to report bots. I wrote it, because I know how to use it and It doesn’t seem that it’s helping at all. At the end of the day, the app wasn’t created so the users spend time of their day reporting spam. And that’s daily! Do something about it, don’t tryna be smart in the review section!
This is getting out of hand. At least 10 SPAM taps or messages a day. It’s so bad that, you don’t even want to message anyone anymore, there’s already enough people with fake profiles as it is. It doesn’t seem like Grindr is doing anything about this issue, or at least I’ve never seen a statement from them about this. Subscription is expensive and the revenue Grindr receives doesn’t seem like It’s going towards making the app SPAM Free! Till then, 1 star from me!
How come other apps have the function where no matter what device your signed into your chats are all there. I did a chat backup before installing this on my iPad. Logged in did the backup thing to put all my chats into the iPad and there was nothing transferred. Plus way to many trannies
By Piece of crap nickname
Not enough functionality for the prices your charge. too much upselling for basic features that should be free
Always I have my account off line 5/5
Why my account be off line . I’m pay my membership eve July
Use Any Other Hookup App 1/5
By Filmer Guru
Grindr gives you a lack of features compared to its competition because they want you to pay an up-fee for features. Screw that. Buy anything else. All it has going for it is horny users. But they are on all the other apps too. Let this dinosaur die.
Grindr will ban you for no reason and leave you with no recourse 1/5
I had a hard time believing people saying Grindr was banning accounts for no reason until it happened to me. I contacted support and was sent a response with three community guidelines as reference, none of which have I ever violated. When I pointed out I did not violate the guidelines I was sent a response that the terms of service allows Grindr to ban you for no reason if they wish. I guess this is what we can expect now that the Chinese government owns this app
Geared towards Twink 1/5
Twinks can get away with anything on the app. I did a experiment. Posted my friend pic a Twink( with permission) and posted that I wanted money for sex. While I got plenty of offers it run for 3 weeks with not reports and not banned. Change the pic to me an bearish looking guy with. Asking to be generous for time and was banned in hours. Proved my point. I did this because I got ban before for calling twink a over privileged brat. Yet I was able to be called a fat ugly loser with the offender getting no repercussions.
Works as advertised. 5/5
The app is great and works exactly as they advertise it. There are some cool features too.
Terrible support system 1/5
By Afro-Latino king
I know they don’t NEED to have a reason to ban someone but like do they have to be so rude about it. Of course like anyone else I first ignored the ban and just made a new account but realized they banned my Ip. So I then reached out to see what I did wrong but just got a automated response saying they won’t lift the ban. I tried a second time to reach out and got another automated response not even two minutes after saying they don’t need a reason to ban someone and can do so at anytime....what’s with that?!?
Useless without paying 1/5
By Multi university student
I wouldn’t be surprised the FTC starts an anti-trust lawsuit against this app. Grindr has been around for a decade and the price keeps getting higher. New features keep being added, features that cost the developer little to nothing. Features that are staples for most free apps are absurdly expensive on Grindr. On top of this, the new parent company has been accused of selling extremely personal data, such as HIV status, to advertisers. Grindr needs to die out already.
No les importa si alguien reporta tu cuenta, te la pueden suspender sin pruebas.
Lo peor es que si adquieres algún plan no te regresarán tu dinero, no es justo.
Bought a Unlimited subscription. Can’t log in or change password. Form to request help long and confusing.
Explore FLOP 1/5
By Brandon S. Pacheco
Their “Explore” feature is an epic mess, if it’s even functioning. A specific travel location you may be searching with a radius expanding multiple states. You waste time talking to folks who maybe “near” the location you’ve entered. Folks in my state show up in searches states away. Other apps have this perfected and workable, as with everything, Grindr is challenged at simple concepts.
Spam spam spam !! 1/5
The spam is out of control on here ! I’m getting bombarded ! Surely apple needs to do something about this app . Deleted the app today. If everyone deletes it instead of whining. Actions speak louder than words. And eventually the app would be gone. The taps have got to go. There is no way to stop them. On adam4adam, they have smiles , but you can set it to “do not allow”. In other words , you don’t get the fake smiles from profiles you don’t care about. You guys should look at this because not everyone has time for the fake profiles that send taps.
Distance is terrible 2/5
When something says 25 miles away it turns out that person is actually 175 miles away
This app is slow and boring
Not So Bad. 3/5
By Stupid and useless Updates
I have not used this app in about two years or so. I found someone special on the app and it turned out to be a good thing. Yes I ran into a lot of duds and guys that just wanted a one time thing but there is someone out there for everyone.
Used to be good 1/5
This used to be a good app to meet and hookup with other men but in the past few years it has been overrun with cops and stalkers targeting gay men.
Worse app 1/5
Grindr is worse app
Poor Customer Service 1/5
Grindr routinely bans accounts based off the mere report of a user without providing any proof of what TOS you supposedly violated. Then all you get from customer service are boys with automated responses and then nothing but silence. Would gladly pay to use this app but not worth the hassle when some bitter queen can get mad when you don’t respond and then falsely report you. Get your crap together Grindr. Oh and stop filtering out these reviews!!!!
