  1. Taps optional

    The ability to disable the tap feature from your profile. This way if you do not wish to recieve taps, other users have no way of tapping you.

  3. Go offline when closing the app

    When closing the app, the profile tends to remain online for a while.
    People think that one is rude for not answering when in reality you are not online.

  4. Let me control who can see me

    Some users might not want to interact with profiles with certain parameters. For example, maybe a University professor doesn't want to be seen by anyone under 21 so they can avoid their students. Or maybe someone looking for strictly friends only doesn't want to be seen by anyone who isn't also looking for new friends. With this kind of control over who can see you, users can avoid unwanted contact with other users.

  5. The ability to LOGOUT or set status to OFFLINE

    If I want to Logout, I should have that opportunity like Facebook and Instagram.

    Another option is to change status from ONLINE to OFFLINE at a whim.

  6. Cross Filters

    Your filter also affects other peoples filters.
    As an example:

    Your filter: age range 25 - 50
    Anybody outside of those filters will not be able to view your profile. This is also the same for body type, height, weight and anything else in that filter.

    This will incidentally narrow down radars but makes for more accurate results with less hassle. It means profiles that appear have the same interests as yours.

  8. STD Verification

    I have a patent which could be used in conjunction with Grindr to allow STD verification. No one has the ability to remotely verify someone's identity, because it could be a desire for a user to share a profile. As disease control goes, that is unacceptable. However, you could have a profile and compare innumerable profiles to search for only those matches that compare favorably and then authenticate the individual using biometrics like an iris scan, face to face using my method: "system for scheduling, recordation, and biometric validation of interpersonal interactions," which is fully patented. It employs a variety…

  9. Allow Grindr to work using just GPS location

    Grindr will no longer update the local guys grid if you have your phone set to use GPS only. It requires you to use GPS, WiFi and local networks or the nearby guys list no longer updates. This is a privacy concern as Google collects a mountain of information from this method. It also drains the batteries faster.
    Please reverse the recent change and allow us to use GPS location only. Grindr does not need any more than that.

  10. Improve Battery Life

    Battery life after the last update has gotten even worse than it already was. Can literally see my battery life counting down when I am in the app. Absolutely poor.

  11. Automatic chat backups

    Now that Google Drive backups are available, make our chats backup automatically every 12 hours, instead of manual backups only.

  12. Filter out faceless profiles

    Make it impossible for profiles without face pics to message or tap others who do want to deal with faceless/anon/discreet users. Gets very tedious having to ask people to show their faces

  13. Better "Looking for" Filter

    When i just wanna look for "friends, dates, relationship & chat" for casual interactions. People who have put down friends, Right Now, chat will pop up and only be interested in Right Now / Fun which renders it useless.

    You need to fix this by in the filter of giving a option on what your not looking for and seperate the rightnow people from the list allowing you not only to be just a hookup app.

  14. By enabling users to change the color scheme of the App so it’s not the giveaway yellow which people instantly recognise if you’re in public

    When using Grindr it has a bold yellow scheme design which, thanks to negative media reporting on some horrific Grindr dates gone wrong, means that many people now recognise the App and it’s colour scheme. I’d prefer to browse or send messages more discreetly if I’m in a public place so please can I change the coulour scheme through settings? I already feel I need to hide the App as it’s too bold & distinctive. In responding to this, Please don’t lecture me about being out & proud.

  16. Develop a “Facial Hair” or “No Facial Hair” option...maybe even down to “Moustache Y/N” and “Beard Y/N” question.

  17. Search on 'looking for love'

    Have an instant switch to a grid of guys who are looking for live as opposed to everything else. Makes Grindr a site for romance as well as just 'right now'

  18. option button to disallow those who don't show distance from seeing your distance

    If you are showing your distance, there should be an option button for you to allow or not allow those who are not revealing their distance from seeing your distance.

  19. Distance hiding should be poison pill

    If you need to allow guys to hide their distance, then if they do hide their distance, then all distance features should be disabled for them. They cannot see others’ distance. The grid should be random distances, ie not sorted by distance.
