Make the app less expensive
Absolutely unaffordable in my country. It's the price of a mini fridge. Was a good app before, but not worth paying if you can only see 6 or less people from your area. Please fix this, rather increase the restrictions on the filters as you had in the past and have more people instead...because at this point, it isn't a social dating platform.

At $510.60 Canadian (including taxes) per year, Grindr Unlimited is more than six times more expensive than Scruff Pro and more than five times more expensive than Sniffies Plus. Yes Grindr has more features but I don't think those justify this high price. During an inevitable budgetary 'belt-tightening' period, my grinder subscription will be the first one on the chopping block.
More votes on this subject is needed please spread the word to others that there is Grindr feedback section and more people need to participate in these, suggestions of feedback even if they only vote no comments are required. I am sure 90% of the users don't even know about this section or how to get to it. Only with more numbers will they pay attention to the facts listed on any idea here, Including that this App is Outrageously Expensive.
Yes! Prices of subscriptions are ridiculous!

Hello Mark, indeed and now it got me thinking as well. There are barely any iPhone users in Asia and the owner is Chinese, while most of the users in the USA and the western world use iPhone. I canceled my subscription as there is no way I’m paying $136 while others pay $75 just because they are on android phones. Plus he had some extra features that I never had.
In response to you comment it seems this is yet another company playing politics in a business organization and not just conducting business. Additionally it seems to be a case of discrimination on who ones what phone. No matter the fees for one device over another device, those extra fees should be spread out to all users from all device otherwise it is clearly a case of discrimination. I guess the CEO and the CFO need to get their act together and follow the laws of business. More users need to be made aware of the fact that Android users pay less for Grindr Xtra than iPhone users.
The price no matter which device is way to expensive. Would you rather have 20 people paying $100.00 for a year or 1000 people paying $40.00 for a year membership do the math a high price does not always mean you are going to make a profit over a lower price. I dare Grindr to test this theory for 6 months.

So when I was telling my friend about the Grindr extra fees, I was shocked to know they have different prices for iPhone users vs Android users.
On iPhone it costs around $136 per years for the Grindr, while on android, the cost is only $75 which is almost half the price.
Shocking honestly, so I emailed Grindr to ask on what’s the reason. In the reply, they said the reason is the fees and commission on Apple Store are way higher than android store.
Which I know is a complete BS, because I own some apps on both stores. The prices are almost the same on both stores. I think just because the iPhone is American, and android is sort of Asian and based mainly in Asia, and the new owner of grindr is a Chinese guy based in Los Angeles since 2019.
They want to raise up the prices for iPhone users only I guess. Is the only app that I know that has almost double the prices for iPhone users.
OVERPRICED is a more appropriate word.
For what they’re offering, how did did they value themselves to get this price point?!
People continue to pay these rates..mind blowing. As the ads for the free users get more intensive, well, that’s a sign to me their cash-cows of paid users is dwindling.

At $59.99 for 3 months is very expensive

Agreed. Unlimited is way too expensive for the features we should already get with XTRA. I use Sniffies primarily now because you get all the features for $7/mo!
I think for BETA users we should get a special price.. $49.00 for the year

Yes, it is quite expensive. Also if compared to other sites/apps.

If you're gonna charge then take all ads away and fake profiles
