The official Grindr blog.
News and more from Team Grindr.
For those of you on the very cutting edge of all things Apple, we have some news to share with you. First of all, Grindr will work on iOS 6 (and that includes the iPhone 5).
We have an update to your current Grindr coming your way very soon, and it's going to fix the iOS 6 compatibility issues we've identified.
Here are some of the issues you may experience with your current Grindr or Grindr Xtra and iOS 6:
If you're planning to update your profile photo anytime soon, we suggest you do so before updating to iOS 6 or switching to the iPhone 5. If you already have iOS 6 or the iPhone 5, we advise that you hold off on updating your profile picture. A Grindr update to your current Grindr or Grindr Xtra that addresses these iOS 6 compatibility issues will be available in iTunes very soon, and we'll let you know when it's there. Thanks!
The Grindr community has just exceeded 4 million users worldwide, meaning there are more guys on this mobile social app than anywhere else. Together we've created the largest mobile gay community known to humankind. Not bad!
To keep up with all of you, we here at Grindr HQ have been working tirelessly to create a revolutionary new version of Grindr, which will be available as soon as we put the finishing touches on it.
“With 4 million men, Grindr is the best place to meet guys, and we’re introducing the new Grindr, which makes your search a lot easier and faster, with new features such as filters and communities,” said Joel Simkhai, founder and CEO of Grindr. “The new Grindr continues our commitment to innovation and our belief in leveraging location-based technologies to help gay men find one another.”
With the new Grindr, we're introducing a long list of fun new features that you're sure to find extremely helpful in your quest to quickly find just the type of guy you're looking for.
The new Grindr will give you better functionality, including filters, a new slide-screen menu, and an optimized interface with a revamped look and feel that still maintains the classic Grindr framework that all of you know and love.
Here’s just a sampling of what the New Grindr will be capable of:
