  1. 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.

        • Fix the "message not sent" glitch

          No new feature, just fix your bug that causes messages to pop up repeatedly as "message not sent". It's especially problematic because sometimes the message actually has sent.

          • 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.

            • 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.

                  • 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.

                      • 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.

                          • “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.

                            • 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)

                                • 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.

                                        • Rooms for rent & room/roommate search

                                          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.
