The app need help 1/5
I do not understanding why every time I go on to the app, I see the same people every time even the ones I already messaged. It’s like it’s only once a month that new people would show up.
Spiraled to irrelevance 1/5
As it sold to a larger media company, it got more ad interruptions, which bypassed mute functions; limiting the viewing range more and more. Then the CEO sells HIV data, speaks against LBGTQ+ marriage, and fires writers who commented about it. This app no longer deserves subscriptions or ad revenue; it is an enemy of the LBGTQ community.
INTRUSIVE ads 1/5
The app is what is is... and used to be good. Since the last update though, it’s nothing but pop up ads that you can’t click out of without waiting 30 seconds or getting automatically redirected to the App Store for some crappola you aren’t interested in. I get that they need to monetize it somehow, but this is just ridiculous.... should be blocked by Apple until they stop hijacking your screen.
Clearly the Apple controls have gotten slack and/or lazy. Perhaps that’s why I’ve lost so much money on their stock though 😂
13 days without reply to my email 1/5
I got banned without any explanation 13 days ago, sent three emails and still got no response. And I am paying for Grindr Xtra.
Really bad service without any respect for the customer.
Spammers and trolls welcome 1/5
Kept reporting and blocking trolls and every other message was from spammers, nothing ever happened, never got a reply then I was the one who got banned after posting my picture and having an honest profile. Freaks, scammers, spammers and old trolls should live this site, oh wait, they already do!
By aggavated guy
I dint get why a paid for xtra and can’t even use it what’s Up with that?
Don’t you wonder why you have a 2 star rating in the App Store? 1/5
This is a terrible app. All it takes is for one person who doesn’t like you to report you and you get banned. I did absolutely nothing wrong and didn’t violate any terms of services. This app has so many fake accounts and losers with blank profiles who message you.
Zero customer service. They don’t care about fake profiles and prostitution that advertise on this app. So many problems I’m not even sure how this app is legal anymore.
Got banned for sending multiple photos! 1/5
Yet bots are still using this app to phish and grand users’ info. Let alone if you have Grindr Extra and you get banned, well there went your money.
I got assaulted from someone I met on this app, surprisingly they’re still online after I reported multiple times to grindr. Goes to show that the media is right, the CEO of this app doesn’t care about its users!
Banned for no reason 1/5
My account was banned recently with no reason, and I contacted support yet no response. Thank you for that
Buying/selling drugs 1/5
A lot of profiles on Grindr offer to buy/sell drugs yet when I try to report those profiles for illegal activities, grindr sends me a message that there was an error and the user can't be reported
Spam is out of control 1/5
I have been sent atleast 2-3 spam messages every day for the past week. Before that, it was still on a daily basis.
I have submitted atleast 50+ reports on spam with no feedback in hopes that this issue gets resolved. The spam issue has been going on for literally years now.
Ad freezes Grindr 1/5
A Hulu ad freezes the screen! Please fix!
This isn’t a real gay app. 1/5
By 80's 4 life
They discriminate and are only about making money off the homosexual community.
Needs more features, improvements... it’s 2019 2/5
This app needs a lot of work. It’s great however too many ads. It’s need me a feature that only allows users with a profile picture to be on my home screen. Also you should be able to go online/offline. Even when I’m on the app, it should be added to settings.
I am so sick of the goddamn bots! Omg!!
This app is ridiculous !!! They don’t do nothing to protect you ! They need to step up there login security when setting up an account !!! My ex keeps using my face pic and pretending to me and asking for sexual favors !!! I have tried contacting Grindr multiple times and they never get back to me it’s embarrassing and very uncomfortable he has even listed all my social media accounts on the grindr profile !!! You guys to to do something about it maybe even go as far as making you use your id when making an account idk !!!
27.99/mo! Are you serious!!??????????? Hahahahaahahahahaha!!! No way.
Urgent !!!! 2/5
Plz fix Grinder as soon as possible. It can’t connect while on 3g in lebanon. Plz fix it now.
$27.99 😂 1/5
You guys have lost your minds jacking the price up from $9.99 to $27.99 a month. This app is too glitchy and full of bots. Such a scam.
Will not refresh 1/5
App is not refreshing at all. All I see is my profile!! Need to fix ASAP
SPAM SPAM SPAM SPAM SPAM 1/5
Spam spam and more spam. 9 of 10 messages is spam, and they’re getting more and more real. The developers solution? Report them. Big difference that makes... reporting spam does nothing to block it from coming through. Since it’s so easy to create a new account, the spammers have already moved on in the 7-10 days it takes them to moderate. (Specify any email address— even a fake one— and then check a box— instant account to spam.)
Get on the bandwagon of every other app.... two factor authentication and device IDs. All other apps seem to do it. You enter an email address and you have to verify it before you can send messages. Other apps also use device IDs. When you create/use an account, your device ID is stored. If you get banned and try to create a new account on the same address, it won’t let you. Those two SIMPLE things are the reasons other apps don’t have this problem.
And so many strides had been made on reliability to be overshadowed by this. Is it a scheme to get people to pay an absurd amount of money for unlimited blocks??
Oh. And the green online dot never shows correctly. If you’re in the chat view, it may show someone online. Click the profile and the green dot goes away to be replaced with “online 2 hours ago.” Same thing in reverse. If the profile shows the user offline, click the profile and it shows the user as online.
I’m out 1/5
1. The app is complete garbage.
2. The President is a straight male bigot who is against gay marriage and does not think money should be spent on gay causes.
3. He fired the INTO group because they had the audacity to call him out on his bigoted comments.
4. The Editor-in-Chief resigned
5. The Communications Director quite in protest.
6. Very few gay men work there.
7. They are a 100 percent owned Chinese company who hates gay people. Yet the love the gay money.
8. Why use the app!
9. They sold HIV status to companies!
The app is complete garbage ran by fake accounts and bots.
It’s a chines company! Boycott Grindr!!!
A plague of bots 1/5
The app has made some recent improvements that were very much needed, on the other hand 95% of the messages are from bots wanting you to go to their “site”. No point in reporting them either, they are probably being ran by the company itself.
Banning Practices 1/5
I’ve never written a review for an app before but this situation feels like it’s needed. If someone flags your profile for some reason which could result in being ‘banned’, I find it the developer’s responsibility to reach out and offer some kind of notice and a reason why. I shouldn’t ever have to open the app and discover one day that I’ve been banned for ‘violating terms of service’ without any prior notification or explanation. Even after contacting support as recommended I have gotten no response. As a PAYING customer, this is a terrible business practice. Either find a more conducive and expeditious way to resolve these issues or continue to alienate more people from your app.
By Albertico Jr
Received a unexpected messages about my account being banned. I have few of my friends are going through the same issue and customer support is not aware of the unexpected actions are happening. Am afraid of using this app and I’m afraid that this will be fully investigated.
The ads are necessary, I’m sure, but can you at least gets advertisers that use a quality platform? I’m tired of being locked into dead end ads that require an app restart or a 20 minute delay. How can I read the messages from the never ending spammers that hit my inbox 20-30 times a day? There are plenty of those as well.I am a long time customer ,but between the ads and spam, that relationship may soon end.
Garbage App! 1/5
This is the worst app on the planet. Nothing, but garbage spammers that try to get you to call numbers.
Lost me 1/5
This app was nice at first. But then it changed and gotten worse and worse. Almost as bad as tumblr’s latest update. I still get messages from bots every other day.
Unable to Refresh 1/5
I have deleted and re-downloaded the app many times. I can only see my profile because the app is “unable to refresh”. If I can’t see profiles how can I use the app? It’s not my phone, or my connection. Everything else works. The app is now unusable because of this glitch. I don’t expect a fix. This company is a joke.
Met the love of my life through the chat, not a joke 2/5
I know this honestly sounds stupid and probably like a joke and like I’m a troll but I’m not. A lot of people go on grindr not necessarily looking to hook up but maybe because they’re lonely. That’s exactly what happened to my boyfriend and I. We live in a very large city where things can be very lonely and it’s hard to meet people. Today marks one year of meeting in person. I know grindr usually gets a bad rap but I just wanted to say thank you for this app because I’ve met the love of my life and without it there’s no way that I would’ve met him even though he only lived 3 miles away.
OUT OF CONTROL BOT INFESTATION 2/5
By Mister Marceline
Grindr is sick with bots and scammers. there are so many it almost seems like they allow them. maybe they’re making $$ off them. it’s extremely frustrating to get 3+ bot messages a day. get it together grindr.
Improvement is good!! 4/5
4 stars for improvement. Its been improving a lot lately. Good job
Spam city!!! 2/5
There are better apps out there with less ads and less fake contacts.
Banned for no reason! 1/5
By King Xosha
I was banned a couple of days ago. I have sent three emails just to see why because there was nothing wrong with my profile. I have YET to receive an email back. Interesting to see Grindr responding to these ratings but not their emails.
Ads! And more ads! 3/5
Even for a free app, there are far too many ads! Now they’ve introduced ads that last a while minute! Even after the ad is done running, there’s no visible circle with an X to close the ad. I found it by trial and error. You have to press top left corner to go back to the app. It’s so irritating to have to sit there and wait for a whole minute. There are also ads that appear as messages. If you want your app to be better, I would at least remove the one minute ads.
once a gay chat.. 2/5
... i know i will get shouted or banned or whatever from grindr but i started using grindr many years ago because i am GAY and was looking for GAY BOYS. Nowadays i see more women in this app then men. Dont come now with how racist i m and all this bs, everybody can be what he wants to be but i ask myself why all these trans men women gender her them whatever dont have an own app where ppl who are looking for this can find this. If im not allowed to say what i think then ban me , grindr .
“Free” trial not free! 1/5
I signed up for the “free” trial for 14 days and was charged 14.99. When I went to cancel the subscription in my settings, I saw a 30 day FREE trial and was charged 14.99 again. The first charge has been refunded however the second one has not. I’ve canceled both subscriptions as I don’t understand why I was charged over $40 for “free” trials of an app. You charge people after a certain period Not when they sign up!
Grindr paid subscription 1/5
After being harassed by bots and reporting them my account was banned. Several attempts to contact Customer Support have gone unanswered. The latest posting makes reference to being closed for the holidays, which were several weeks ago.
So many bots 1/5
This app lets SO MANY bots through. Why anyone would be 12! Per month for this is crazy. Hey Grindr- take some of the millions you’re making and make your app more secure.
VERY DISAPPOINTING =AWFUL 1/5
It’s really amazing to pay for EXTRA and every month I have to re-enter all the information in “filters.” Why should I continue to use your app. You have the nerve to advertise that you are the number one app, and yet, if you actually read the comments, there is always a problem. I paid for the yearly extra app and I also get advertisements. Also, if my password works when getting into the app, how does it not work when signing into your website. Maybe you should sell this app to someone else who really cares about those who use the app and not the money that you collect.
Banned twice for no reason 1/5
By Silva Casterwill
DO NOT GET THIS APP. It’s kinda insane that I made my first account and it gets banned the same night. I make a request to get it unbanned and the email says that if I want an update respond to the email. I do that and I still get no response. Then I decide to uninstall the app and download it again. I GET BANNED THE SAME DAY AGAIN. I’m 18 (almost 19). My profile pic is me in shirtless IN PANTS. I said nothing to offend anyone. The only thing is that I sometimes don’t respond to people so they get angry leading to report me. That’s the only reason I can think. I’ve sent another request but I doubt this app’s owners will give any craps. I can see why this apps ratings have crashed down.
Screw This 1/5
This app has had problems with messaging, and thanks to that, a guy that I was talking to wound up blocking me cuz he thought I was ignoring him, when really, none of my messages were being sent. Way to go Grindr.
Trust issues 1/5
Too many imposter profiles and people trying to catfish others. Why isn’t there a verification process at this point?
Corrupt app allows scammers in 1/5
Grindr has been overtaken by phishing and scammers and is very dangerous. Your information and identity are at risk. I get at least 5 scamming attempts per day .
Grindr Need to Verify Profiles 1/5
Lot of spam messages and fake profiles. Grinder should make effort to verify that people who create profile verify their identity and post real pics of themselves. It is becoming app where people hustle and catfish.
This app has come so close to being good so many times but keeps failing to fascinate🙄...
A really great feature to have on this app would definitely be, KEEPING MY MESSAGES WHEN I DELETE THE APP AND REINSTALL... what moron thought that it would be cool to wipe the slate clean every time - no EVERY👏🏾-TIME👏🏾- you leave the app for a few days it gets really aggravating having to converse with same people and never remember...
What happened? 1/5
This app is full of spam! It used to have spam for a while, but back then it was like once a week getting messages from spam and now it’s several times a day. I report them everyday. It seems ridiculous and unsafe that an app that has this much spam.
Racial discrimination 1/5
By billy gatessss
Just like to tell that lots of people here prefer white caucasian people so maybe if you have different race than white you will know what I’m taking about..
