  1. Create 'Grindr Cogs' ...

    When launching the app, have four cogs appear:

    1) For hookups and s*x

    2) dating and relationships

    3) Friendships

    4) online chat rooms (social circles)

    When you tap a cog, you only see guys near you who just want s*x, dates, friendships or just chat/networking.

    This would be a great organisation tactic. Guys will not be offended by unruly d**k pics, or trying to date a guy who just wants to hook up and block after meeting. Those who just want to chat have a safe space to do so also.

    You can pop in and out of the cogs…

  3. Portrait to landscape

    Allow the app to automatically distinguish if phone or iPad have been rotated from being a portrait position to a landscape position this will allow the device user to be able to place the device on a surface whilst having a video chat or scrolling through profiles

  5. Tranny filter

    Something has got to be done- I pay a lot of money for this app, and let me tell you- it’s a full time job blocking these trannies. I don’t want anything that resembles a woman- they are flooding the system and taking up precious real estate!

  6. Explain the block

    Using the same system that most players use, the report, explain why the block was applied is not only more clear as well as doubtless for the one that was blocked.
    Ex:
    - block - inconvenient
    - block - bulliyng
    - block - not interesting
    - block - annoying

    In addition, sending a message to the one that was blocked instead of just disapearing, is something that should be in the app

  8. A ‘Not today’ function

    A temporary blocking feature for when you want to ‘disappear’ from someone for a day or period of time. Think of all the times your just not in the mood for a certain someone and wish you could hide for a day, you still want to keep them as an option later. Just not now lol.

  9. Ability to delete profiles from our blocked list

    Most of them are trolls who I'll never be interested in unblocking

  10. Location

    The location function only works by the location of Google but I can not always depend on it since it moved me to places with bad internet signal I try to update the location by a GPS and the app does not work, avoiding profile connection. Since the last update this problem occurs.

  12. Prevent multiple accounts per device

    There’s a pretty consistent horror of blocking somebody and having them create a new account to come and berate you all over again.

    I believe Grindr should be a safe space, and creating a one-to-one relationship between the device and the user profile should help minimise bullying on the platform by better enforcing blocks.

    Other considerations: email address verification, or a minimum phone number sign up verification step. I’d also argue that members can only have 1 Grindr account per identity provider and that deleting an account creates a 30 day delay until they can re-create it.

  13. Desktop/Web Access to Grindr

    A way to log into/use your Grindr profile from PC would be nice. Some of the other apps have web versions and it would be especially handy to be able to use Grindr from web browser when your phone is charging or if you lose/break it

  15. Verified User+

    Apply an 18+ verification but add a dummy profile along with it, too. The option to have another trolling account or maybe a blank account for the "unverified users". BC we all know everyone has multiple accounts. The free version shouldnt allow profiles with info. Blank profiles only... updates can be reverted, why not try it... oh, bring back Beta Testing on an actual Identification Basis... Beta Tester from the beginning in this locale... lost it to Google. Way to forget about every improvement since...Grindr was a simple chat clone of YIM. Literally, I even helped on the Unlimited beta.…

  16. Let us refresh the main screen by ourselves

    Let us refresh the screen by ourselves. Don't have the refresh occurring automatically. It is really annoying when you are looking at profiles and suddenly the screen refreshes and bounces back to the top again.

  17. Two-way blocking

    If I block someone because I work with them, I can still see their face and title. Colleagues who blocked me can still see mine - very awkward! Block it both ways.

    If you need a way to distinguish between people that you've blocked, use the time blocked or reason for blocking.

  18. Show "Member Since" date on profile

    Every profile should show the date it was created, like Hornet does. This would help establish credibility for a user. (Displaying it could be optional, I suppose, if there are people who prefer to keep it hidden.) For example, "Joined in Feb 2017" or "Member since Aug 2016" at the end of one's profile.

  19. Make Explore accurate

    Why is it that explore is not accurate? This is a PAID feature. It should be as accurate as the main page. I travel a lot (I'm in the military), so I would like to use Explore to search for guys in the city / town I am visiting. But explore is totally useless, showing people hundreds of miles away. It actually makes me want to quit my Xtra subscription as you're not providing what I am paying for. Scruff does though.

  20. Moderation of users misusing the Gender and Pronouns fields

    Many users treat the Gender and Pronouns fields for transphobic insults and jokes. This needs to be taken more seriously. Please remove derogatory remarks from customized Gender and Pronouns fields so that trans and queer users aren't constantly facing hateful content.
