Great app but could use improvements

The app functions well. It definitely doesn’t have as many bugs and crashes as it once used to. They have implemented changes to filters which is nice, but I also do have some suggestions I’d like to see included in the app. I do like how no one can screenshot the albums in your photo, but I think this should just be a general inclusivity for any photo that is sent out. That way we can prevent catfish from creating fake profiles. I would also like to see the race category put back into place. I personally don’t think there’s anything wrong with having a stronger preference towards a certain demographic. I understand that they are trying to be inclusive but people are attracted to what they are attracted to. Just let it be. I’m Hispanic and I’ve met plenty of people who say they aren’t interested in Latinos. They say we have to much of an attitude. It’s a generalization, but I’m okay with it because that person is clearly not meant for me, and I don’t want them apart of my life. I say allow people to select what they like and allow others to judge them for their character. After all, we are all just trying to find the perfect match.

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.

Not inclusive of trans women

For a dating app that states they cater to the LGBTQ community, they don’t really care for transgender women. I used Grindr a lot prior to my transition and never had an issue. Fast forward 5 years later and now a post-op trans woman I decided to try it out again and my account was banned after a few weeks on the app. When I reached out to appeal my ban, Nathan from “Grindr Support” stated that the decision was final, there’s nothing that can be done, and that they would not be responding to any further inquiries about my account. Even though I express to them that I didn’t care to know “who” reported me, I more so wanted to know the reason of my ban for example what exact term or condition did I “violate” to get banned? Being that I didn’t lie about who I was, I never offended/disrespected anyone, nor used fake info, my profile was the cleanest profile on that app. There are some that have their bare bottoms as their profile pics, sending endless inappropriate pictures/messages, and even some literally offering money for sexual favors…..yet, I was the one that got banned. It felt like they didn’t even bother to look into it or actually try to help. At this point I’m getting BIG transphobic vibes. Tinder was a lot more helpful about this issue, I just wish Grindr was the same, but anyways Happy Holidays everyone!

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.

On its way out it seems

All good things must end I suppose but Grindr didn’t *have* to end like this. The free version of this app is so limited and full of invasive ads that it is actually difficult to use it and when I have only the free version I use the app much less frequently. Well who cares I’m not paying for it the developers surely assume. Wrong, I ordinarily pay for a unlimited subscription but I am reconsidering that now because it feels like there are just less fresh faces on the app now and discrete dl people who won’t pay for a subscription because it’s so unpleasant to use. It’s just the same old people who pay for a subscription use the app 24/7 and who I’ve already met or I am not interested in. It seems like they know that their business doesn’t profit in the short term from people finding other people they like because then those two customers may not need to use the app anymore or use it less. Sounds profitable but they failed to realize that by doing the wrong thing and steering short term profits in terms of not focusing on customers getting what they want and instead being paying customers month after month, that they would ultimately destroy the who thing when the ripple effect of their greed slowly alienated the occasional or infrequent users. The same users are most sensitive to the poor user experience they thoughtlessly deliver. On top of that it’s hard to know the app is secure they don’t even have two factor authentication.

Safety is not a commodity

I’ve downloaded and deleted this app several times over the years, my only issue: the safety. Users must PAY for SAFETY FEATURES. I understand the need to monetize, but there are other ways - host member only community events. Prioritize member profiles in the grid. Something, anything, but safety. Why can I not delete an address I accidentally sent? What if that person actually comes to my house or stalks me? It happened. Why do men who have had accounts deleted or removed for harassment have so much access to the app, the ability to create seemingly unlimited accounts? Grindr is transparent about their non liability in safety policies but I expect more for my community. Safety cannot be guaranteed, that is a given in any space online or physical. But why is dangerous behavior permitted? Why must I, a struggling college student, pay $20/month for access to basic safety features I can find in any other social media platform? Especially in the current climate of violence towards LGBTQ people, to trans people facing disproportionate amounts of violence. I come back to the app occasionally because I like to emphasize my effort to be a part of the community, connect with people I feel seen by and safe with in a world I already see as so dangerous to people like me. I want the community. But I’m disappointed time and time again to see Grindr devalue their users, violate and capitalize our right to safety.

“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.
