The app is ok. The constant ads are annoying. What's really frustrating is the fact that the whole accuracy of the location of people is wrong! In explore mode, I search a certain town, and it shows people supposedly "in" or "near" that town I searched, but when I tap on their profile to review it, it says they're miles and miles away from it, anywhere from a couple dozen, to over a hundred miles away from the location I searched.

The quality and features are declining; even with the updates. The app constantly crashes, the ads are becoming excessive (launching or redirecting you without tapping anything), photos are being deleted without reason or notice, profile photos do not appear in a timely manner, messages aren't sent right away and the overall refresh function repeatedly glitches/mis-fires. As of late, the ads are the only aspect of the app that is consistent.

It's been a year, and here I am again to give the same review.. yes, Grindr, you can reply to this message, and yes, I can provide troubleshooting emails from your team. My issue has not been resolved, and I will in quotes post it now: "Sometimes my messages get stuck in a sending loop that lasts too long and ultimately fails to send . I have to close and reopen the app, copy and paste my message to send... its kinda bs. Your ads load perfectly. It would make sense if your product did as well."
