Good app for its purpose 5/5
Glitches galore 2/5
Recently frequent freezes and crashes. I've had to abandon chats with people because of freezes. It changes my setting, including age preferences but especially marked recently chatted, at random. I am a paying member. Very frustrating.
It’s a great website 5/5
By arthur in Hawaii County
There are lots of guys who are honestly looking for honest guys. Then there are lots of fakes and way too much BS.
I suggest an annual subscription. It’s worth it, especially if you’re living in an area with a very limited number of people.
Thus app has gotten horrible with pop up ads - almost ready to stop using it
Great app 1/5
Ending my subscription bcz of homophobic owner #boycottgrindr
Super fun! 5/5
Grinder is great!
Spam Accounts 1/5
There should be an option to verify your account with a Live Photo. This would separate actual accounts from spam and fake profiles much easier.
Bots galore 😍 1/5
until Grindr gets a grip on their bot infestation, they only deserve one star.
Mixed bag 2/5
By MCO RN
Messages don’t always go through. Lots of spam bots. Poor connectivity. If guys don’t answer you on Tinder it’s bc they’re looking on here.
Fake members 2/5
Too many fake/spam members on the app. This app needs to be fixed it’s so annoying when fake members tap you & come up with some bull crap like “I don’t think this app is working & give you their number & it’s all fake. It’s extremely annoying.
SUGERENCIA DE PRIVACIDAD 5/5
Se que las comparaciones son incómodas pero a veces son buenos ejemplos.
Sería bueno que las fotos que uno envió pudieran borrarse de la conversación cuando uno quiera para que el otro ya no las mire más como en “Scruff”.
Loud audio ads no matter what your phone volume is set to 1/5
Now this app manages to start shouting out advertisements that are audio-only. This happens no matter what the volume on the phone is set to, and even it is on silent mode. There is no excuse for hijacking my phone, and leaving the app does not stop the intrusive, horrible audio from playing. You have to actually quit the app. This is way beyond unacceptable. Apple needs to ban this app until they stop being so aggressive and hijack your phone. It's actually shocking how hideous this app is. Do not ever open it in public. I'll never make that mistake again.
Location not found 2/5
I’ve used this app a lot but recently it stated flashing up unable to find you. It’s cant locate me even with WiFi you would think with today’s technology we could fix it.

Pop-up Ads Now? 1/5
The newest update seems to have pop ups? Which won’t go away!! Every few seconds the same ad comes back up!!
Some ads(?) auto send you to App Store. (inovate to save or something like that).
The background beep that used to be there on old versions now shuts off music.
Video ads continue to make noise after closing
Some ads don’t load correctly giving a black screen of death. Have to close app to get rid of.
Basically update your advertisements.
But there’s a new option to let people know you are ok with nudes so, yay?
So I’m paying for the subscription and after an automatic update it won’t allow me to put my position, the option isn’t even in the “Edit Profile” section. Also, I keep removing “Yes Please” under the “Accepts NSFW Pics” section, save it, then it populates back right after. I’ve deleted and reinstalled the app twice but no luck. Please help thanks! I’ve always considered the app 5 stars.
How the mighty have fallen! #SAD 1/5
Yeah.... let’s PAY membership to be harassed by scammers & spam bots!.... NO! So done with this ONCE great & fun app. #RIP you will be missed!
SOOOO NOT RENEWING my extra!!!
Good tech support, however you shouldn’t need to contact them daily if the app works. 👍
The spam is horrible 1/5
There is more spam on this site than any other dating app I am using. It is endless and nothing see to be done about it
There are many “bots” that contact you with a preprogrammed script. Grinder needs to stop scams and robots.
Position Edit 1/5
I can’t get rid of my Position on my bio. There isn’t an option when I go to Edit Profile anymore...
Grindrs ok 2/5
Great way to spread stds! Too many ads
Too many gays.
Dropped messages 3/5
The app constantly makes it so my messages dont deliver
I’ve had consistent issues with notifications coming to me after I’ve read the message. Also, when you open the app it doesn’t update itself. Lastly, when I turn on Mark Recently Chatted it doesn’t stay on after I close and re-open the app. I like the app but it has definitely hit a rough patch that needs correcting. Thanks!
Taps 🤬🤬 2/5
Please please please remove the freakin taps. Its childish and no one asked for it. Its frustrating as an adult for people to not use their words but hide behind a tap button. Or Atleast make it so that we can disable the taps option.
Dishonest to its advertisers and users 2/5
If you've used Grindr for more than a few minutes you've probably noticed that you have accidentally open your web browser by touching an ad that mysteriously appears under your finger at the bottom of the screen. That's not an accident, Grindr intentionally places ads in spots on your screen where you're most likely to accidentally touch and open them. Doing that gets them the clicks they promise advertisers despite the fact that most users don't want the products being shown to them nor did they mean to click the ad. It's dishonest to both advertisers and users. Grindr is already riddled with ads but the practice of placement for accidental taps is almost criminal. I know having ads keeps Grindr free - I bought a year membership but Grindr cancelled it a month into the membership because I mentioned in my ad that I was looking for a roommate- but have you ever seen anyone actually view the ads? Not one person ever.
By let's fuck🐷🍆💦
Sometimes is frustrating to see profiles with pics supposedly not allowed. But is impossible to me sometimes to change my pics. Even having grindr xtra
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.
I’ve been banned twice with no reason. Support could not give reason and would not lift the ban. The app is half way decent but you cant just ban people with no option of coming back. Bury yourself Grindr.
Too many ads. Every time I go to do something. I’m canceling
Better When it’s Free 1/5
Was quite happy with this app as a free subscriber. They added a feature that was like a teaser and I fell for it. Once I paid the feature will not load. I’ve been going back and forth over email after email telling me to try the same things they repeatedly tell me to try! I’m super unhappy with to help desk and disappointed that I seem to have paid for worse than a free app! Thanks Grindr for keeping your customers so “happy”
Please disable TAPS. They are all bots, and it is super annoying!
Stealing money 1/5
Somehow my profile had the premium features. I thought it was one one those trials that i may have signed up by mistake. I do not like paying for premium feature as i barely use the app. Today i saw an email from Itunes. Grindr charged me $27.99 for a subscription i canceled a week ago. I did not authorized anything. I contacted apple support and the were not able to help me at all. I will involve my bank in this issue.
App easily manipulated by bots, no tech support 1/5
I’m a paying user who submitted a tech support request in November. I got a reply in June. Seriously.
In addition, you will get dozens of messages and taps every week from users whose accounts are inactive. Grindr does not acknowledge this is an issue, so they’re not trying to fix it. You will get dozens of messages from active accounts that are actually bots as well. You will report all of these things to Grindr. They will not listen. You will wonder why the hell you’re paying for this crap.
I like it 4/5
By Rob gonzo !
It works well and all the only thing I don’t like is the about of bots hence the 3 stars
Stop trying to make it like Scruff 2/5
The new “people who viewed you” feature is annoying and takes away from my window shopping experience. I regularly go through profiles of people that don’t interest me, and I feel like showing up as one of their viewers sends them the wrong signal. Please add an option of incognito mode. It could be like LinkedIn, where you give up the ability of seeing who viewed you in exchange for not showing up on other’s viewer lists.
Ban the spam 1/5
If you would get rid of the bots saying they were on a peacekeeping mission in Afghanistan or other foreign places the app would be great. Nearly one of five is one of those contacts. I block more than I chat. When you clean it up I’ll join again.
Please filter out the Robots on this app! 1/5
It’s ridiculous how many times a day I get a random spam bot messaging me or tapping me. It’s annoying and makes my experience with the service very bad.
So many ads 1/5
This app is now littered with ads...
Worst App Ever 1/5
By Brooklyn 999
Full of web cam fake Dom scams and fake sugar daddy scams. Full of drug dealers who don’t want sex and Grindr allows it?? Terrible
Are you fricken kidding me!! Now you need to have Ads in the middle of profile pictures?!? I don’t know of an app that needs to have Ads in every area. Ads at the bottom, Ads that pop up when you open profiles, Ads in messages & now Ads in the middle of profiles. Get your crap together!!
We All Know What This Is 3/5
By Roman puppy
Grindr serves its purpose. When you want to meet someone you can. When you want to just converse you can. When you want to just browse you can. The ads are irritating. The bots are annoying. And now the app is designed with a big ad box in the middle so you see fewer guys. Grindr does everything possible to make you want to buy a subscription.
Still needs a lot of work 2/5
Even after years of development, the app performs very poorly. Loses connection and needs to be started to reestablish the connection. Refreshing is inconsistent. Online status of other users inaccurate. Many spam and bot accounts. Some features are poorly conceived. A filter for who you haven’t chatted with today? Useless. Before adding more fluff features or jacking up the price, the priority needs to be delivering a stable, smooth-running app.
By Michael Anthony Martin
Grindr is getting way to pricey and the locations are never accurate. It’s not worth the cost. So many fake profiles also.
A sheep in disguise 3/5
I used to love this app. Had an excellent summer with it made two great friends who sadly moved away. Then found my first boyfriend. It was a wonderful time. However the viewing feature is absolutely disastrous. I hate it. It is a useful tool as I sit and wait for people to message me which is pleasant though not when I “gauge the perimeter”. It is terrible. I don’t want my former “hookup” or co-worker to know I viewed them. This isn’t the real Grindr.. this is a generic dating app under the guise of Grindr..
Not worth it 2/5
I’ve been on and off Grindr for the past 5 years. It has been okay until about a year ago with the amount of ads and bots attacking your screen. I will not and won’t ever pay for this app for what it’s for. I was attacked for months by the same person no matter how many times I’ve blocked and reported them for harassment. And when I finally put my foot down and told this person to stop attacking me I was banned for harassment. That finally drew the line for me to leave this app for good. There are way better meet up apps with easier functions less bugs and way less bots. Grindr does not care about their users even if you pay the full year amount of the unlimited. They even ban subscribers for no reason and will not give you a reason. Also, it’s full of ingrates and just all around terrible people. I don’t support Grindr and will be signing any petitions to get it shut down.
