  1. Delivery & read receipt reliability improvements

    Fix the message delivery status and read receipt bugs. The message status should update to "Delivered" once it has been delivered, and to "Read" once it's been opened.
    The status of a sent message is supposed to change from Sent to Delivered if the recipient has the app open, but many times I’ve seen people online even hours or days later, and my message still shows as Sent, leading me to assume they haven’t got it. So I send another message, which led to one guy telling me I’m impatient. This bug, combined with Grindr often losing messages altogether, keeps…

  2. Ability to select 2 ethnicities

    Because Middle Easterners can be classified as White, Latinos can be White or Black, and those who are Mixed will be able to specify.

  3. Allow us to delete all current message history for both parties in the message, sometimes you just want to restart w/out making new account.

    Delete messages for both sides. Sometimes you just wanna clear all chats and restart, but you pay for subscription so you don’t want to make a new profile. I know we can delete the messages from us, but I wanna know it deletes on their side too. Sometimes you send the wrong message or something, or you need to send a picture to set things up, but you want to be able to delete your picture after. I get that you shouldn’t send if you don’t want it out there, but this is about more than just pictures. I just…

  5. Rooms for rent & roommate search

    Housing can be hard to come by for some gay men. Give users a quality way to post rooms for rent and to search for rooms and roommates.

  6. Color theme change

    It would be great to have a chat background color that looks like your standard iOS or Android messaging window. I’d like to sneak into Grindr without attracting too much attention from snooping peeps around me 😉

  7. Switch profiles

    I have a "normal" profile on Grindr, with a clear face pic and a vanilla text. But I do have some fetishes, which I'm hesitant to include in my vanilla profile. So, it'd be nice if I could have more than one profile, so I could switch to my kinky profile when I'm looking for more kinky dates and then switch back to my vanilla profile when I'm just looking for "normal" dates. Currently, I use a spare phone to switch to my kinky profile. But this could even be a premium feature. Switching personas. Lots of people play different…

  9. Mark as unread

    Sometimes we receive messages, we read it and we’re not able to reply immediately, the messages are marked as read and then they get lost when we receive new messages from others users and we forget. It would be great a feature “mark as unread” so we can get back to them later filtering unread messages.

  10. Let me control who can see me

    Some users might not want to interact with profiles with certain parameters. For example, maybe a University professor doesn't want to be seen by anyone under 21 so they can avoid their students. Or maybe someone looking for strictly friends only doesn't want to be seen by anyone who isn't also looking for new friends. With this kind of control over who can see you, users can avoid unwanted contact with other users.

  11. Not having ads with sound

    I get it, Grindr needs ad revenue but ads which randomly pop up and start blaring loud noises and sounds? Really Grindr? Is it really such a hard concept to understand we don’t want to have to silence our phones or risk having everyone in the building hear the ads?

  12. More accurate location

    There are a lot of times when I send my location or someone send there's and it's inaccurate. Even when showing distance between other users is not correct

  13. New Tribes Categories

    Hello,
    I think you are missing out on a big community of people. The chub and chaser community. I know their are other apps out there but if you could just add chub and chaser to the tribes section you may get a lot more people interested in the app that are from the chub/chaser community. On occasion (as a chubby guy) I get lucky and find a guy who is into chubby guys. But a majority of the time I’m not so lucky. I see you added Bear and that is great but how do you find the people…

  15. Picture Exchange

    There should be an option of picture exchange. I fill the box with my pic at my end. But it won't be displayed to you unless you fill yours at your end. When both boxes are filled and sent, pictures can be seen at both end.

  16. Profile videos

    Basically allow us to upload a video describing ourselves and what we are seeking. I would also say allow us to share videos of our selves but that could get pretty raunchy. So, an option to upload a public video of ourselves describing ourselves and what we are looking for and like would be a nice way to let guys know what we are about.

  19. Improve Battery Life

    Battery life after the last update has gotten even worse than it already was. Can literally see my battery life counting down when I am in the app. Absolutely poor.

  20. Most tapped list

    Create a most tapped in the last hour/day list. This may make taps a bit less hated. I don’t mind taps but it seems like at least 1 in 5 profiles has someone expressing their dislike of taps. By introducing the most tapped list people may enjoy the ego boost :p
