The only app for Bears and Bear Chasers!

More Bears in More Places...we are a global community with over 10,000,000 members worldwide. GROWLR allows you to meet other Bears from around the world or around the corner. GROWLR is free, fast, reliable and easy to use.

A Bear is a gay man who belongs to a very inclusive part of the gay community. Some are hairy, some are muscular, and some are heavy-set and some are none of those things. Being a bear is about being yourself - we are all amazing no matter how we are labeled.

Bear Chasers are the men who love Bears – and if you’re a Chaser you’ve come to the right place! More Bears in More Places.

It’s the perfect way to meet guys and make friends whether you are sitting at home or traveling abroad. Send and receive private instant messages, live video calls, pictures and video.

We also have an amazing Event section with complete and up-to-date Bear Run and Bear Bar listings. Tons of Galleries, Check-in features, Notes and More.

It works ok. Support is non existent. You pay for pro subscription. All you get for support is delete and reinstall. For Android users, all messages and contacts are lost. If your tech problems continues, well too bad paying member, you're screwed. It's annoying to no end especially when the problem is on the server and not your device. They refuse to address the problem.

You can't get rid of the Shout feature because of an error. Reached out to support for assistance. I received a response with a "solution" that had nothing to do with the issues I submitted which included screenshots. I reached back out for follow-up, but no response. They just want the money. I'm considering deleting my profile anyways. I have better luck on Scruff.

It's ridiculous that this is the app that has the most expensive premium amount. People are actually paying for this app? You lose all your messages switching to a new phone. and then you have so many blank profiles in your nearby.. hahaha. Definitely not paying for this there are better apps for free and even come with mobile/ websites sites for those that want it on computer. Not sure what people are paying for. Someone unlocks pictures they want you to pay to see unlocked pictures. Never!!
