User Reviews for Grindr - Gay Dating & Chat

May as well rebrand your name to “Greedy”

With each update, you get less and less options for free users, and soon it will be unusable, unless you pay. While I don’t mind paying, these prices are far too steep for what you get. Not to mention you might drop $80-$100 only to find you’ve been banned shortly after with no explanation as to why. (Yes developers, I’ve seen your responses to other reviews on this matter, but I know too many men in my own circles that are evidence to the contrary. Bottom line is your moderation system is terrible.) Speaking of my own circles, no one ever has anything good to say about this app. They just treat it like a necessary evil they have to put up with. I’m beginning to seek alternatives, and encourage others to do so as well. I would rather pay for a platform that provides me with some kind of benefit to do so, not because I feel like I’m being squeezed in a vice and have no other choice. Just keep in mind, it’s a slippery slope. The more unusable you make it, the less users you’ll have in your base, the less likely users will see value in paying for anything no matter what the price is at that point.

Will ban your account and ability to create any other accounts

I’ve given this my utmost effort, and really did not want to give a bad review. The Grindr support team is not very helpful, and has not responded to me in almost a month after a 4-month battle to try and get my accounts back or restore my ability to create a new account and use the app. I was banned in March of 2022 and instantly reached out to support with an appeal, with my main profile being unbanned. However, was told that I needed to submit an appeal to all of the accounts I had, which was one other account through my Apple ID. After submitting a second appeal for my Apple ID account I was required to know the date of creating my account, which was unknown to me since I had not used it in a long time. I was told that there was nothing they could do since I did not know when I made the account and have since not received an email back from my email sent on June 10th, 2022. It is July 4th. This all sprung from a claim that I was underage even though I had sent pictures of my drivers license to prove it, which apparently isn’t enough. I’m still unable to use the app whatsoever or create a new account without an instant ban. I’m not the only person with this issue, and others have had this issue even after purchasing a subscription and completely losing the money. Beware.

They finally have fixed the problems

This app keeps getting more and more and more and more expensive. They change the price every six months it seems. I had been an off and o. Paid subscriber for years. They just have gotten too expensive. Their pic moderation seems extremely biased and is not consistent. If you aren’t a twink or muscle guy any pic seems to get moderated. I have screen shot over 280 pics where the pic wasn’t moderated and mine was. Either it’s racial or body specific. I talking to an attorney to see what type of class action lawsuit can be filed for it to either have them consistently moderate or shut the site down. Also seems like an abnormal amount of bots are allowed now and an overwhelming amount of underage guys are on the site another filing I’m working on with an attorney. Chances are that Grindr won’t even respond to this review, but I’d steer away from this site.

Please fix your quality control, Grindr devs

The following is not a helpdesk/end-user problem; it is a long-running QC issue that should not have the buck passed on to us consumers to solve. Pros: The only thing this app has going for it in terms of positive user experience is that there are so many people using it. 1 star for the ubiquity. Cons: Unfortunately, for me, with my iPhone 12, my phone constantly freezes any time I download and use this app. Further, my phone gets extremely hot to the touch, and my battery drains so drastically that I have to charge it any time I’m using this app. These behaviors occur only when I have Grindr running. If I kill the app, my phone is fine. When I delete the app, my phone is fine. I’ve yet to do an iOS restore as a last-stitch effort, but in this nearly Web 3 era and decades of smart phones, how can this one app crash my phone so badly? I’ll tell you: sometimes I can’t even kill the app for minutes; the entire phone becomes unresponsive. Have you read their version update logs? It’s a generic description each time. What are the developers actually fixing with the plethora of versions being released? How about focusing on RAM and CPU usage? Very limited recommendation and I would never pay for it at this point. Minus 4 stars for nearly melting my phone’s internals—I’m guessing it’s the CPU overheating.

“Discreet” is not a Filter

It’s an abuse of privilege. DownLow Bros have used and misused the Queer community for their own creeping, sneaking, lying, cheating ways. This lack of sexual respect for the Queer community is an effect of the poorly maintained & contained boundaries of the legal & illegal porn industry disgusting behaviors. Guys just want to show off their junk & that they like to cross dress on the low. Rather than being a man that stands by his word the men on these apps (JUST LIKE CRAIGSLIST personal sections) they have no repercussions or consequences for misusing the label of “LGBT friendly dating app” no this is not. It’s an app the cisgender rich white men built so they can creep on the low with each other and no one has to know. Advertising their spaces for glory 🕳🕳🕳🕳🕳 or 🔩 me in my car. No one has respect for themselves or the people they want to spray their juices all over. I’ve used this app all over California. San Diego, Sacramento, San Francisco, Palm Springs. All of the just DownLow Bros trying to get off “right now.” No talk, just pants down & see you around. 🤮 Grindr. Discreet is not a filter!!!!!!!! LGBTQIA — no “D” for discreet in our community or “DL” for DownLow. Go to your wife & kids & stop trying to creep with me while you’re supposed to be at work.

All the reviews are fake!

Edit!!!!! I have been reporting fake accounts, I talked to one account and they seemed fake but sent a video showing they was “real”. They send their location and their address. and right when I show up I knock and it was an old couple who said no one young lived there and when I got back on the app it was a fake account asking for a steam pay account. This account stayed up for 6 days before being taken down!!! Someone needs to be taking the owners of grindr to court for this stuff!!This app is FULL of fake accounts, when they are reported NOTHING happens to them! At all. They upload blurry photos they got off google and then they will tag a location asking for gift cards or credit card info, others will say “tired of this app go here and enjoy” and there’s about 2 of those messages a day. So aside from the HORRIBLE amount of spam and scammers they OVERRRRR charge for a monthly membership..I’m sorry...$20 a month to see who’s 10+ miles away...? Or $20 a month to see who is a top or bottom..like really...? You can buy a Netflix membership for cheaper then they charge just for a few things. (100% not worth that price.) This app is by far one of the worst “dating” or “hookups” app I’ve ever seen. They’re nothing but money hungry and they do not care that their users are being scammed and used.

Glitchy behavior seems fixed

I wrote a lengthy review a couple months ago that mysteriously disappeared. I have heard of this happening before when a developer wants to improve their rating, so whatever. I actually wanted to respond to my original criticism - after 2 months, the glitchy behavior that would slow everything down and eventually render my phone unusable has seemingly gone away (at least on the iPhone 13). So kudos to the developers for fixing these issues. The app is once again fun to use. And hopefully the development team has implemented fuller regression testing using a larger array of phones and tablets. So this is my problem now: After all the recent troubles with the app, I’m very reticent to download new updates. I noticed there was one available, but how can I know it won’t make things worse again? One way would be to examine the revision history for a list of changes and fixes. But in the case of this app, every update says the exact same thing, and it basically says nothing. So my recommendation is to seriously consider turning off automatic updates until the developers decide to be more transparent about changes made with each release.

I have been using this app for several years for what this app is used for. Then on the day I decide to purchase a one month membership to get the Xtra features I was banned without notice. I thought it to be a technical glitch so I reached out to the support for them and asked for reasons on the ban and they said all I have todo is appeal the ban. I went a week without word back, and reached out again and again. Then I received a email back that only said that I now have a lifetime ban and that I’m screwed because I purchased it, but better cancel my subscription or they will keep billing me. The only thing they said why I was banned was because of community guidelines. I asked for clarification on what I violated because I had no nudity, no foul language, no in appropriate speech, and as a person I don’t talk bad about other people. This is a horrible app, if you are doing what you are supposed to be doing. And they are no help in trying to rectify the situation. The language that they used in there correspondence with me makes me feel like I am a bad person, and being punished for something that never happened. I have been warned about random people getting banned for no reason then get excommunicated for absolutely no reason. Shame on the company Grindr, Inc. same on what you do to loyal customers and I hope this prevents you from marking any money off of your next victim. The essential stole from me and now won’t tell me why. ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE!!!!!!

Terribly unbalanced

I’ve used Grindr as a paying customer for many years and it seems like over time the user experience has grown exponentially worse. I think the tipping point was reached with the “who viewed you” feature. I liked that feature at first, but have come to realize that it has a dark side. The platform doesn’t do well at all with matching people based on their interests or compatible traits, and because of that I’ve realized many users have taken to using blocks as a sort of filter. A typical scenario I keep running into is getting blocked by a user I haven’t even interacted with. I might just be looking at their photos and “poof!” they’re gone. My assumption is that they must have seen me on “who viewed you” and then decided to block me. Well, good riddance, but its still a very disheartening thing that happens constantly.Aside from those problems, fending off creepers is a constant battle. I’d like to spend more words on my profile talking about my interests and the kinds of friends I’d like to meet (yes, I look for friendships) instead of trying to jam into that very limited space what I am not looking for plus maybe a short visit sentence about me. The character limit is infuriating.With that said, I think this will be my last month carrying an active subscription. I think I’ll prefer a different platform where people actually talk like decent respectful human beings instead of objectifying everyone as hot or not and blocking them accordingly.

To be honest

App works well to network. Except glitches can really kill an opportunity. Lost messages sometimes make the other person believe you are not interested- and vice versa. When a regular text comes in on iPhone- the app gets weird. I decline the text- but the app goes offline- and photos and msgs I have sent prior to message notification are lost. Sometimes when I block soneone/ the app gets frozen- I have to turn iPhone off to restart after a long wait- usually 5 minutes. If guys are going to rely on this app- it needs to work correctly. Pics and messages need to be sent and received. Otherwise- someone may become offended that you have not responded to their message- and block you. When I send error reports- when I get a notification- what happens? Do you use this ? Or is it a waste of my time.? Until grinder gets kinks worked out- guys will use several apps at once- and not trust this app. Also- location goes haywire on occasion. Someone who it says is close by- can be in reality be a thousand miles away. I use the app a lot. And wish you had customer service reps available when problems arise. Jg Un
