  1. 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.

  5. “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.

  6. 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)

  7. Promote s*x addiction awareness and education

    S*x addiction is a silent and dangerous epidemic affecting the MSM community. Grindr users need more tools, resources, and encouragement to seek help for personal health & wellness issues. Please serve the at-risk MSM community by cultivating a HEALTHY appetite for s*x online.

  13. Hide someone without blocking them

    Hide someone so you don’t have to see the guy who rejected you, but they can still see/message you if they want to.

  16. List of popular places and events

    A list of places such as bars, coffee shops, clubs, etc. could be made available to the users for them to post on and review. The posts could also serve a place where people organize events. It could even be linked to an event page. This would encourage users to meet in real life, especially if the life of places are sorted by location, popularity, and activeness.

    As a plus, users could also subscribe to places they like, and be notified when there is an event happening there, or when someone posts something on the page of the place.

  17. Un-deliver messages

    Allow us to retract messages we previously sent within a chat, and replace them with "Message unsent by sender."
    This feature works great on Scruff and would be VERY valuable on Grindr.

  19. Replace 'Fresh Faces' with a profile matching algorithm

    Show us profiles we would most likely be interested in, based on chat metric data like what ages, ethnicities, heights, weights, body types, positions, tribes, etc., that we chat with the most.

  20. Ability to select 2 ethnicities

    Because Middle Easterners can be classified as White, Latinos can be White or Black, and those who are Mixed will be able to specify.
