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.
Prices should be cut in half at least. They'd get more subscribers, and earn more long term. I would never spend this much money on an app with all these problems..(bots, fakes etc.)
The subscription costs are just insane. According to this website you had 723,000 paying members in December 2021. Lets assume they are paying between £100 and £200 each a year. My suggestion is that you don't just cut the prices you slash them dramatically and you could have 11 million active monthly members paying you £1 each, every month for Xtra and lets say £3 a month for unlimited. You will make more money in the long run as more people will be willing and able to justify such prices but at £210 a year for the unlimited subsription it is just not something most people would A) be able to afford and B) think its worth more than a fraction of that for the extra features when hardly a day passes without something on the app not working as it should and after 10 years the app should be stable & actually work . The cost for boosts is just a disgrace at £8.99 for an hour. I hope nobody pays for that as its just pure greed

Make beta tester available for more loyal and long term members as in if someone pays out the ass for extra or unlimited for more than two months beta should become available to get a option to become a beta tester
Really, for an app you’re overcharging anyway please make it crash proof. It’s ridiculous how many times the app crashes and freezes my phone and then I have to uninstall and reinstall. Really? This is the way you wanna do it? It sucks, big time. I rly like the app, but the crashing thing is a major flaw and YOU NEED TO GET THIS FIXED!!! You guy should be ashamed of charging these amounts of money for an app that’s just flaky at best. Get some developers on board, pay them VERY GOOD and fix it. Get ur shit together guys or drop the insane amounts of money you’re charging. No excuses, seriously.
I prefer short non-recurring subscriptions. Grindr came up with a 24-hour Unlimited access designed to attract the impulsive like me. I haven't bought one though because the price is just prohibitive. It's priced at 25% of its monthly cost! I'm tempted to subscribe if they extend it from 24 hours to 7 days and have options for both Xtra and Unlimited to choose from.
Does it really take less than 24 hours to hook up these days? Each person is different.
Totally agree. Far too high in price. Ridiculous. Glad this has been raised.

Xtra should be available in binary prices for hours or for a day will increase the numbers and grinder users interest. As per their availability they can pay easily and use feature. Will definitely increase the audiance who'll pay for use.
1) fix the app from making my iPhone run hot and it gets so slow it’s unbearable and it’s ridiculous. Maybe itd be worth paying for if it didn’t fuck up multiple times a day. 2) make an app for Apple Watch so it’s easy to respond to people. 3) you should definitely try to humble yourself with your prices because you haven’t fixed the bugs for this app to be worth half of what your charging. Thanks.

Really too expensive unlimited subscription. You get more people to subscribe if you make it half price of the existing price. Thanks in advanced
As long as people want to pay, prices will not fall. This platform should be fully accessible to all, and not divide people who can and cannot afford. Prices should be affordable for the entire cross-section of society, not just for those with a thicker wallet.
The paid options certainly are over the top for the extra features that are offered so they do need to be less expensive, particularly with how things are heading these days. More people are likely to be unable to afford such prices going forward.

Annoyed with money grabbing everything & overrunning it with intrusive ads & overpriced premium. Albums WAS great free yet now we are back to sending individuals. Seems like you guys don't care about the quality of experience on this app and it shows greed everywhere. You're providing no real extra value for your premium to be that expensive. It just makes the experience sub par compared to even newer platforms like Sniffies.com

I completely agree. One app I use isn't even an app, it's a desktop website with a mobile version available at no additional cost. They're quarterly subscription is only 16.95 for full use of all features. I used to think Scruff was a rip off and just recently stumbled upon a half priced quarterly subscription rate, but I"ve been nagging them for years about their Pro subscription rate.
Grindr App keeps crashing and it doesn’t let me to launch and open the App. It is not the first time and I have already reported a couple of times but did not receive solutions for the problem. I think to be able to find out a solution maybe Grindr should identify the problem first otherwise people keep loosing the chat history which might be an important issue for some of us. That’s why I stop paying the app as it won’t make any difference, because if Grindr charges around £13.99 then It should allow the subscriber to get the most of it. I have attached ScreenShoot so it will be easier to support what I’ve been trying to help explain.

A wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy high suscription only with scarce benefits.
When you pay:
- There are still annoying ads every day
- You have zero added protection
- Empty profiles can still view you at will, no discretion added.
- Profiles keep on being unverified, so plenty are fake or even AI's.
- Scammers thrive here because of the above
- Haters also trhive here because of the above
- Picture stealers also thrive here because of the above
- There is no "payers can only be viewed by payers" option.
Or this is addressed, or I will not renew any suscription at all and look somewhere else for another app that cares about my safety, mostly after charging me $$$$$$.
I think, the boost option is too expensive too, thé first price was 5€, and now 10€
I think too that one hour is not enought for This price. Minimum 12 or 24h for This kind of boost

Let me talk to other people for free, you fucking douchebags. The only reason your app is profitable is that it's the only one on offer.
