  1. Offline without delay

    Too many times guys think you're online for a full 10 minutes after you shut off the app. Not every guy has figured this out. It has lead to cancelled interest in future contact.

    If you're offline it should be immediate to see that indicator go dark.

      • Force people to use a profile pic of a human face. Not a tree, torso or leaving it blank. No pic no profile

          • Remove 'Fresh Faces'

            It's a useless waste of space. Or at least give us the option to hide it if we choose.

              • Make somehow discreet marketing so for other curious/DL people that might haven’t heard about Grindr could come this app and use it.

                We all have the one straight friend that might wanna try one of this app to get off. Tons of curious people out there that haven’t heard about grindr. This is the perfect app for boys to get off. Straight guys will love it too.
                More discreet marketing on social media.

                • Keyword search

                  In order to compete with services like meetup, tinder, OkCupid, etc., some added search functionality like by keywords could re-invigorate Grindr usage. One thing that comes to mind is keyword search in profiles. “Show me people in the general vicinity that have an interest in art” (or cars, or skydiving)

                    • Mass-select profiles from feed to hide

                      Let's be honest - most of the guys on our feed are not of interest, so it would be helpful to easily (and quickly) hide them.

                      • Real Time Online Status (Green Dot) Updates

                        We've encountered a bug that's causing users to show a mismatch on the green dot indicator for Online Status.

                        Our development team is looking into this to improve your experience.

                        • Enable PIN With Fingerprint

                          Users would love the ability to enable PIN with their fingerprint [TouchID in iOS] or Face Detection.

                          • Search by display name

                            This would be a useful filter in general, but especially useful for those who want to reconnect with somebody they chatted with previously but lost track of.

                              • “Profile Viewable By” filter

                                Add a filter to your profile to only allow selected people to view your profile. For example, I only want 23-32 year olds to be able to see my profile, my location and whether or not I’m online.

                                    Housing can be hard to come by for some gay men. Give users a quality way to post rooms for rent and to search for rooms and roommates.

                                    • 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.
