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.

I agree. And to be promoting $15 for a day pass as some big deal? I found it quite shocking and completely outrageous. I could see maybe like $15 at the most for a whole month, but I wouldn't pay any more than that for 30 days (I find that a bit high as well, but it makes a lot more sense than just raping us financially for a mere 24 hours of unlimited "perks"). If Comcast and all these other businesses can hook people up that are struggling, then you guys should be able to do the same. I can get internet service for a whole month cheaper than what you guys are offering for a 24 hour pass to unlimited game players, bullshitters, elitist snobs, narcissists, liars, tranny hookers, escorts, "massage therapists" and used up loose bottoms. On second thought, I would never pay any amount to use this app. It's hardly worth using the free version as it is.

Ridiculously expensive app for one with ridiculously frequent problems. Yet even if it functioned well, I would still not join because of the cost of membership.

I am loving the app and embracing all what it can offer, but to dive into its monthly or annually membership is horribly expensive. Can't afford sorry.
I think there should be additional filters and profile fields for the following, especially with how expensive the XTRA/Unlimited is. I think these would allow individuals to find others that have features they are or aren't looking for. Some individuals find tattoos attractive or are looking for individuals who are into 420. However, with the limit on characters, people can't put everything they are looking for in their profile, and this doesn't help when filtering.
Please consider adding the following:
Body Hair (Smooth, Shaved, Some Hair, Hairy, Very Hairy)
Separate Tribes into "Interested in" and "Tribe I Belong to"
This would help clear up confusion from people who list the Tribes they are into in their profiles rather than list the Tribes they belong to.
Piercings: (Ears Pierced, Nose Pierced, Other Piercings, No Piercings)
Tattoos: (Tattoos, No Tattoos)
Alcohol use: (Never, Sober, Socially, Often)
Drug use: (Never, Sober, Socially, Often)
Marijuana use: (Never, Sober, Socially, Often)
Gender Identity and Ethnicity - I know these can be controversial due to potential exclusion but having those filters it makes it easier for individuals who are of a minority or certain gender identity to find others with similar ethnicities or genders.
Other filters/profile fields that others may suggest.
Agree especially when you can't control the spammers

I agree and support this 100%.

Price to high
You’re being pretty stingy with non paying members especially considering you have ads too. Even ManHunt, which is awful otherwise, lets free users show interest by liking, and lets free users have at least some initiating emails a day. You are not enticing me to pay by holding ALL the cards until I do. I’m not paying until I know your system is efficient, and I won’t know that unless I can actually use it.
Giving a free trial of your membership to test it out in case it’s not worth it because it’s pretty pricy to be honest

This isnt an idea but given you do not offer any other way of contacting i shall just post here I've had this app for years but now it's getting to the point you have to pay for literally everything it's not worth having anymore and the fact there are so many intrusive ads also I apologize to whomever it offends but I had been under the impression it was just for guys apparently thats.not the case anymore which defeats the entire purpose of the app so I will just be deleting my account y'all ruined it completely
First of Grindr “Free Version” really doesn’t give u enough profiles to look through it hits the Xtra tab for u to have to pay just to see more ppl
Then with the Xtra price really it’s really worth 9.99 and not 19.99
Please change the price because really I haven’t really met a lot of more than just only using Grindr free it’s just Grindr Xtra gave me more ranges to choose from
Well I’ve noticed how the majority of initial profiles on free memberships are mainly offline but the moment you come to the section which if paid for would release 600 more profiles and funnily enough most of those guys ARE online.
Maybe Grindr could stop rigging the app in order to deviously and manipulate those guys who are not paying into paying because of the suspect set up practices being adopted.
Gauging gay, bi, straight, trans and trans appreciative people to get dick (or whatever) by being pricks is a BS practice.
The prices are indeed absurdly high, which worse features that you could get from free on websites like Gaydar.co.uk 20 years ago. It's laughable
I support this 100% absolutely ridiculous prices really pricing yourself out of full members
Donald Garretson commented
With the number of users you have, $25 a year for the first level would be plenty of income, and $50 a year for all options would be totally reasonable. Your current prices show that you have little interest in the users outside of earning enough to live extremely comfortable. If you are making more than the low side of middle income earner than you are just profiting off of your users and not providing a service for them to make the community safer.

It's really expensive and you really don't get that much we are talking about Tulsa boys here I don't necessarily know that they're worth the price
Michael Kelso commented
I thought about it but describing things to people who are clearly delusional or aliens would be spinning wheels.
How many people work at Grindr? Is this even a real company or like what’s going on? If you fired everyone and restarted nobody could even tell because you could just keep one person to post the same nonsense claims on the updates pages and there you go. Business as usual. But who knows maybe it could be better. Certainly couldn’t get worse. Your “improvements” and “bug fixes” also make me consider maybe you’re all nonnative English speakers and confused improved with needlessly removed, or just straight up the opposite of improved or fixed. Thesaurus? New coders? Auditors? Anybody in charge? Directors? Cause really over a decade and this not even polished turd is all you have? Expensive dingy turd for 100% way too much. You usually don’t charge for alpha software. And if you do, you don’t get to be Adobe… your brand sucks and struggles with basic functionality that founded the basis of the internet. Text and images with “filters”… literally Web 1.0 technology, you somehow made slow buggy stuttering and unreliable in an age where forks, spoons and other stuff have processing power more than capable or handling the BASICS that your coders somehow messed up so badly an iPhone struggles with it?
Also where can I apply? I’m probably over qualified because I taught myself some HTML and CSS and Ajax…. But I’m very passionate about getting paid way too much for less than nothing literally removing features and weakening the ones we didn’t remove at literally nobodies request.

Lower monthly rates for areas with low populations extra isn't worth it if majority aren't in same Province
Dave Wolf commented
Yes exactly! I'd rather not get laid than pay what they want. Their ads are literally only aimed at getting you to pay a stupid obscene price. I'll buy the app for a small one time fee but that outrageous monthly fee? No fucking way
