    • Make chat history available across devices

      I use the app in both iphone and ipad but I have to remember which device has what conversation and be careful not to open a chat in the wrong device or it will not appear in the other. Absurd.

      • Passcode / Touch ID to open App

        Please install the function to activate a passcode to open the app. That would be usefully that no one else then me can open the app. The passcode could be activated or deactivated in the settings so everyone can decide if he need it or not. To use the Touch ID for the iPhone would Improve the login time.

          • Block List

            Would be very nice if it was possible to review everyone on your blocked list and selectively unblock individuals rather than having to unblock then entire list.

            • Restore Chat History From Local Backup File

              Every time Grindr is reinstalled or the account is created in a new device, we lose the entire chat history. Please enable a feature to restore the chat history from a backup file which can be stored in the device memory locally (A lot like the local backup feature available in WhatsApp).

              P.S.- Grindr doesn't save any chat conversation or history in there cloud/remote server. The data is saved in the users device. So a global sync might be against the policy, however as Grindr already create a local file to save the data, it just should give an option…

                        • Private pics u can lock & unlock

                          A private album which u can unlock to allow a user to view which you can then lock again should you want to so they can no longer see your private pics.
                          This way, guys don't always have access to pics you've previously sent them in chats from weeks/months/years ago.

                          • Crop

                            You used to be able to crop photos before sending them. Now, the photo is selected and automatically sent.

                            Give us old Grindr back! Your app developers would make better use of their time Grindring their head against a wall.

                                DELETE conversation/ images on BOTH sides

                                A new feature has appeared in Grindr v.3 : now you can NOT anymore delete previous pictures or messages you have sent to people !

                                After contact with Grindr support it is a deliberate change. I hope we will be a lot of people to ask Grindr to remove this change !!

                                This change was first unnoticed, it was not mentionned in the the changes : it is nightmare !
                                In previous versions, when you block someone, all the chat dissapeared. So you remained the owner of your own pics, now everybody (people you…

                                  • Push Notifications for all!

                                    Get with the times. Every app, gay or not, offers FREE push notifications. It's ridiculous and stingy to charge to know when you have a message. Especially when you live in an area where it's same people all the time.

                                    • Indicator on cascade (grid of guys) if I've recently chatted with this user

                                      Bring back the darkened box that said that you had already messaged that person. Also, not very easy to read profile sometimes if you have to swipe up. Sometimes, not able to read age or anything either, because there is that hour glass in the way, and no way to remove it when looking at profile

                                        • Make it safe

                                          Please make grindr safe to use. See the news about how gays are being attacked and arrested for using your app outside the US, and pinpointing their location. Some suggestions would be to blur location accuraccy, and add an option for end-to-end encryption for chats, just like Whatsapp and Telegram.
