Longtime user, but this app has really gone downhill. The ads are less intrusive than grindr, but the other limitations on free profiles make it largely unusable...so not many people use it - which makes the Pro level not worth it either. The new layout is a mess. People create profiles to sell massages, with the exact same photos over and over, and Scruff just allows it. They'll respond to this review with some boilerplate saying to contact them, but that's bull, they don't do anything.

Update: I contacted support on the app, after no response I messaged again asking for a response. Then the support question was closed. Nobody ever responded and the issue persists. Original: So we can't access our photo library anymore when picking profile photos? Only recent photos and albums are available which doesn't allow me to seach for photos. It's been like this for months.

Don't pay for it. Scruff terminated my pro account this morning without explanation. It's in the middle of a subscription period. It still shows as active in my subscriptions through Google, but I was informed it had expired and those features disabled. I've met one two people (in person) in a year on the app...I don't think it's helpful or good for me--and now that I'm finding it poorly managed, too, I can't justify having it around. I'll update this if they fix (or even acknowledge it).
