Stop using popup ads and redirects
Stop using pop-up ads and forcing redirects on people it ruins the whole user experience.

I loved Grindr like everyone else, but now it’s so expensive and has so many annoying ads that last too long. I even put my phone away during the ads. And then you can only see 9 people. What’s the use of that? The app used to be one of the best. It has grown so much, but this is what you get in return. Profit is important for a company, but this is over the top. The goodwill is gone.

Sometimes I have to reboot my phone to get away from the redirects . I don’t mind a ad or two but some of them are just over board .
Obviously. Grindr doesn’t care at all

100% agree these pop up adds are ridiculous and unnecessary I’ve hardly been using the app since these started as soon as the pop ups come up I am closing the app. I don’t need forced advertisements for games on an app like this!
This ads problem has gone on to long and I have stopped looking It's a problem that has messed everything up for me

I click X on the ad....but instead of closing the ad, it takes me through to the advertiser's site?
That's literally not how it's supposed to work, what a misleading UX...
Grindr might need your money or that of the advertisers, but please….
This is a simple app, easy to write, now it’s a publicly traded company.
I hope you all consider rewriting the poorly optimized and buggy code if not the entire app.
Functionality and UI have barely changed since the first release…. What has changed is the app’s stability, regressions and other defects are everywhere. The app, as currently implemented, is using more memory than necessary, and the memory leaks constantly crash the app.
I could create a fast version with the identical user interface in a month or two. If I thought I could get everyone to give it a try, I know it would replace Grindr. ************Hell, Craigslist was better, faster, easier, and more effective than Grindr until they stopped allowing personals.*************
Does anyone anywhere even play those stupid games?

There are a million more user friendly ways to monetize your app. Stop the insanity.

Honestly the ads are ridiculous pop ups after viewing someone's profile or
after replying to a message. Just ridiculously annoying.

It is so invasive. I u ser stand you need to make money on the free accounts but come in. You are not dealing with stupid user, if yiu force us to see that full screen, no body will buy it. Put a banner on the top, i we like we will buy it!!
The ads are of hard-core man on man bondage scenes. If you feel this is sexual harassment like I do. Contact me. I'm curious about suing. Jennabusygirl@gmail.com

Ads won't close without restarting phone.
Yes yes...please stop spamming us with forced pop up ads and blocking the app screen, this can lead to your device freezing up and not being able to function without restarting.

Have them updated their ad
The blank ad box makes it impossible to see chat messages when the keyboard is open. This has to be removed
