Grindr.com is by far the biggest mobile dating app for gay men. Having been founded in 2009, the app now covers 192 countries worldwide and boasts over 4,500,000 members who use this location-based service: all for finding dates and chatting with those nearby.
Grindr.com App: On Your Mobile
Grindr sadly only operates in the form of a smartphone app. Members access the features through iPhone and Android systems. When you login to the app, you can write up a short profile using a nickname and fill out typical information including relationship status, age, height, weight etc. and of course us a photo. Do be warned: Grindr.com classics do include dick pics and shirtless mirror selfies...
While the app is great for chatting, those who are looking for something a little more serious and less superficial may be happier with Gay-Parship.
Download for Dating: What Gay Men Get From Grindr
Once you download Grindr, you'll see a couple of profiles. After that, you’re free to trawl through the profiles and see what's available before you starting messaging. Profiles display icons which show who is currently online. A lot of the time, we found a high level of superficiality since there is a never-ending tendency for members to send messages such, “Wow, sexy…” with little else… (besides the dreaded dick pic!)
Grindr: UK and the World
While you can use Grindr in the UK, the app itself is somewhat international. It is available in worldwide and therefore can be accessed from a number of different locations. The app is also completely free, although there are a number of upgraded versions that you can use which come with extra features.
Grindr Xtra and Prices
Grindr Xtra and Grindr are actually two separate apps, with Xtra being described as an "expanded" version (complete with prices for extra features!). With this version you can see 300 guys at a single time (instead of 100) and even save more members to your "favourites" list.
