  1. Reorganize our blocked list as a table arranged by month

    Seeing it currently as a list is not useful for us users who block frequently (to curate our feeds) and need to unblock somebody. A table would be much more efficient and user-friendly.

    • Show us guys from more than just the past hour

      Give us the option to see the past two hours, the past four hours, the past eight hours, the past day, the past two days, three days, etc. It would make the app a million times more amazing.

      • A way to filter out people I’ve chatted with recently,

        Like the current feature which filters out people I’ve chatted with in the last day, I’d like to have more time periods. Like, filter out anyone I’ve chatted with in the last week, or month. Or show only people I’ve never chatted with.

          • Get more gay men on Grindr

            Lessen the hookup nature of the app, so that more non-h0rny, quality gay men join the app for friends and dates. Sponsor events in major cities. Hire ambassadors (college students, bartenders, young people, etc) to promote the Grindr brand. Hand out free Grindr merchandise/apparel at gay bars and Pride events. Advertise in local gay publications and social media. Let's get more gay singles on Grindr!

              • Make Grindr a better space for professional networking

                Allow users to select their industry of employment from a list, and/or give users a field to write their occupation. Put professionals in some of your marketing campaigns. Highlight gay-friendly local companies/workplaces. Let's promote gainful employment in the gay community!

                • Give users the ability to see other users' reply rates and personal preferences

                  Please enable us to see every profile's overall reply rate, as well as the age/height/weight ranges, ethnicities, body types, positions, and tribes that they reply to most. This is a great way to gauge each other's preferences, and would make Grindr 10000x more fun.

                  • Unsend taps

                    Unsend the tap when you tap on someone by mistake.

                    • 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.

                      • Make relationship status a required profile field

                        But let the user choose whether they want to show or hide it on their profile, just like age.

                          • Stop automatic refreshing

                            Sometimes when I return to the thumbnail feed after viewing a profile or using another app, I see a guy that I want to message, but then the feed automatically refreshes and the guy disappears :( Sometimes, if I am lucky I can find him again after searching carefully, but most of the time he is completely lost. This has caused me SO much frustration. PLEASE end this!
                            (A possible alternative to automatic refreshing would be to make a 'refresh' icon hover at the top of the feed/screen when it comes time to refresh, but allow us USERS to click…

                            • 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.

                              • Facial scanning for photo verification

                                Live camera to verify against uploaded photos. Start with face verification. Move to body in phase 2. Even if the technology isn’t quite there, could still to a percentage verification (i.e. “this photo is 75% verified” or “Grindr is 75% sure that the image being shared is of the same person that created the profile”). Could even turn into dating photos (I.e. this photo received an 80% verification rating 2 weeks ago”) to give a rough validation that someone is as fit or young as they appear in photos.

                                  • Enable us to filter out the people we've messaged before

                                    Let us filter out anyone we've chatted with in the past day, past week, past month, past two months, all time, etc (let us choose the time period). This will help us especially avoid the profiles who never responded to us, so we can see/connect with only new people.
