  1. Verify users

    This would be to verify a user by one of a few means either they have to send their photo to you with their name on it or instead of utilizing emails as a verification use their mobile numbers similar to whatsap this will stop or minimize the amount of fake profiles as lately grindr has a huge number of pfs that are fake and guys just open a new one with another fake email address

  2. Anonymous STD Alerts

    To prevent the spread of STDs, it would be great to have an option to anonymously notify Grindr hookups of changes in STD status. It could be as simple as an anonymous message saying that “Someone you have hooked up with in the past 3 months has tested positive for ___ (give a drop down box of choices).” Followed by a remind to get tested.

    It is often uncomfortable or impossible to disclose a change in STD status. Therefore, this option would allow users to do it in away that makes them feel more comfortable.

    The option should allow you…

  3. Timed Messages - disappear seconds after read

    Allow user to select a setting which sets the time frame that a message exists in both users messages. User can select from a list “sent messages are” : permanent unless deleted, timed for:
    Sender can select the length of the message. Timer can begin from when message is sent, OR from when message is delivered OR from when the message is read. time remaining until message expires is known to both users

  4. Add city and put local or visitor next to it

    Many people only care to chat with locals of the city they are in or visitor in their city they are in...hence many put as their profile name. It would be great if in the profile you could list the city you live in and for it to say next to it if you are a local or visitor. And for us to filter locals from visitors.

    For example:
    Miami Beach - Local
    Miami Beach - Visitor

    People can use this depending on the relationship they would like to build with the people they talk to. Locals for longer term…

  6. Privacy settings like the icon replacement should be standard

    With all the worry about privacy today, making the app icon a standard feature rather than a premium option would make a strong statement in support of people who might not be out of the closet. Everything else is fair game, however. Great service In general.

  7. 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.

  9. Insight feature

    Enable us to see reply rates, as well as the age/height/weight ranges, ethnicities, body types, positions, and tribes that a profile replies to most. Being able to search/filter by these user preferences would be great too.

  13. Filter by keyword

    Filter by words in a persons profile and not just so you don't see them but anyone using certain words cannot see you either.

  15. Special icon for users who are 'visiting'

    Enable users to select a "visiting" status if they are traveling/visiting a new city, so that a special icon (e.g., a plane) will display in the corner of their profile thumbnail and their city/state/country of origin will appear in their profile.

  16. Write-In Ethnicity Options

    The ethnicity category is littered with awful inaccuracies. I recently wrote to Xtube about the same topic, and it is an conflict gay service providers need to face and do something positive about.

    I understand most people of The United States of America are white, and therefore most users of Grindr, and the owners of it, and the operators of it, etc. BUT, these options were clearly made by people who have no knowledge of and sensitivity to race and culture. It is important to allow users to dictate their own cultures and not have to be subjected to the…

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

  18. Option to hide profiles instead of just block

    This would be useful for those of us who curate our feeds currently by blocking the profiles we find unattractive, because, now, our blocked list is dominated by those 'unattractive' profiles, making it difficult to sift through and find someone we want to unblock for more 'special' reasons, like an old friend or lover. Enabling us to hide the unattractive profiles instead of just blocking them will leave the block feature to be used for more serious reasons and de-clutter our blocked list. Thank you

  19. Enable reply via notifications, view sent pics on notification long press profile to chat+view profile pop up

    Grindr can you please add some features that are extremely useful on Scruff, like being able to reply via notifications, view sent pics/ profile pic via notifications without having to go into the app and the ability to long press on a profile to take you straight to the chat screen. They are very handy and speed communication up immensely.

  20. Tribes should be two categories

    Separate tribes to what tribe you belong to and what you're into. Eg. I am a twink, who is into daddy etc.
