Too many intrusive ads that take over your whole screen. It's a joke. I hate that Grindr wants to slap those ads on your face and force you to see them. They belong to a banner, not your screen. Very often, the profiles won't load up or messages fail to send with an error. Bad updates. It doesn't connect and I have to reinstall again to make it to work again, losing all the chats. Why update when it has too many bugs?

About 1 in 5 times I use this app, an ad causes it to freeze and I can't even access my home screen on my phone without pressing the power button and unlocked my lock screen again, then I still have to close the frozen app since it's still jammed. I'm all for ads since they allow free access, but Grindr used to be known for non-invasive ads. Now it freezes up constantly. Wish they would just make the ad experience painless.

Every update makes it worse and worse. All of a sudden now I can't block people from the viewed me list. And then when you go to the search location option on the third screen and put in a ZIP code you see the same 10 people duplicated 45 times each. They all have different names they're all at different distances but they're all exactly the same photos. How is that humanly possible. So now I can't block people that are stalking my profile and when I go to search for a town , it's all fake
