  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.

      • 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.

        • 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.

          • 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.

            • 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…

                • Automatic chat backups

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

                  • 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.

                        • 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.

                          • 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

                              Be able to click a button for when you’re at work/school . Currently you have to wait a little while to change you’re profile picture.

                                      • Add country location. For those living near a border, would be nice to restrict search to specific country

                                        I live in Toronto but when I search I often get profiles from the USA where one may not be interested. Would be great to add country in search criteria
