The cost of Grindr
I think you should do a reduction in your prices as they are absolutely outrageous!! I've always been happy with the basic one as I dont need to know if someones read my message or not, But, if your prices were lower more people would consider it. Why not try and and be the same prices as fellow apps, or just slightly at a higher rate.

These so called "advanced" or "paid" features are simple and commonly available throughout applications. Placing such an unreasonably high $ price on features that are not inheritly scarce, innovative, unique nor important to all customers is a demonsration of their green driven business practices. The pricing model is absolutely bonkers and makes no sense. Despite being a well established app who should be mature enough to reap the benefits of continuous improvement & long term investment (and pass over savings to users), the pricing is exorbitant and inconsistent with other models (confusing users who compare Grindr's model to other efficient working models). Plus, user privacy/security is at high risk. So why pay them more for nothing? The platform is woefully underutilised.

Amen! It seemed to start around the holidays, and the creep has continued into the New Year! Now every feature requires an grade. And now you can be in the middle of a chat and it will cut to an advertisement before you can respond again.

The negative feature creep on Grindr the last new years has made it a joke. Charging just to see who viewed you last, or unfair boosting above already paying people creates a crappy community experience. I don't need to see those who paid extra to display that they're more desperate than others. It is already expensive and if a user let's on they're paying a premium for Grindr Ridiculous or whatever you call the product, I am less likely to want to get to know them.

PEDAZO DE LADRONES, LUEGO BUSCAN EXCUSAS PARA ECHARTE Y QUEDARSE CON EL DINERO
So I was paying £100 for unlimited for a year. I had to contact their technical support who suggested I deactivated my account in an attempt to resolve the issue. Of course when I trued to redeem or reinstate the original price, Grindr said No. It was a promotional offer. A promotional offer I'd had for 3 years!!!! Yeah right. Lol
Stop over charging for everything is a start. You're now charging for Boost me and at one time on Fresh we could view every profile, now charging $20.00 just to view a few profiles. That's not necessary but greed.

But then they wouldn’t be able to exploit a marginalized group of people!
Grindr has long become a place for pedophiles, deviants and whores. In addition, you have to pay for it.
I'm still waiting for a reply. 3 months from when I sent my email
I actually did receive a response from Grindr re the insane price increase and here was their reply 😂🤣

I don't care much about the price, but to pay an expensive price and be bombarded by empty profiles without having an option to block it to protect my privacy from abusers is an abuse itself by grindr, and I'm moving away once my subscription is over.
Not to count the advertisements they put on you, no matter how much you pay, or the moral lessons they pretend to teach with their filter politics, or it being less and less gay each day. Enough is enough.
I already cancelled mine

It need s to cum doon to a better price
Just posted on the Unlimited post, the cost of Grindr Xtra/Unlimited is a joke!
Here's an example in the UK:
Xtra Monthly is £17.49 vs Unlimited Monthly £34.99 – That’s double the price!
Xtra 3 Months is £34.99 vs Unlimited £69.99 – Also double the price! – Also an £84.99 option
Xtra 6 Months £55.99 vis Unlimited £129.99 - £75 increase!
I cancelled my subscription when they over doubled the price, this month

And the whole “who viewed me” function is absolutely ridiculous. Every other app out there lets you review all the traffic through your profile indefinitely f
None of your Beeswax! commented
it seems pretty obvious to me, the owners want to kill this app
them stripping features / functionalities away with each downgrade—in conjunction with grindR's generally-ludicrous subscription pricing—in no way entices us basic members to want to sign up
especially not in this economy in which we're dealing with rampant shrinkflation / inflation!
grindR? you're shooting yourselves in the foot, for real
you know that, right?
i probably WOULD go premium with your service if it was $5/month; i'm willing to wager, many others would as well
but you've demonstrated repeatedly, over these last 7 - 10 years, you're not interested in thinking smartly
by the way: i constantly hear complaints from your paying members, that their experience isn't much better than the regulars'
so...my incentive for "upgrading" remains nil

37.99 x 12 months = 455.88
That's how much an Unlimited Membership will now cost. It is the price it is offering.
Notice how Grindr staff have never responded to any of the comments here?
The price of 1-year EXTRA membership raise almost 7x of original price. That’s crazy!!!
They are losing potential customers because they are so greedy, specially on non first world countries for whom paying such amounts is ridiculous. I mean really, you have no idea how expensive it is. Steam offers differential prices over different countries and by doing so they actually sell more and get more loyal customers
