Art_Deco saidWow, you're right wrestlervic, some of the worst reviews of any app I've seen. I just went to the App Store out of curiosity (I don't use Grindr) and Grindr Xtra is getting pounded. I guess guys who use social search apps might want to avoid this one, I can't believe Grindr will be around for long if they don't quickly get their act together. And they were once the leader - sad.
I think a lot of negative reviews reflect frustration, but also show high usage and demand. If people were apathetic it would show no one cared/used the app.
Grindr was in the gay meet-up business early and has name recognition. This is a market where your app is only of value when lots of other guys have it, too, and are using it.
If the dissatisfaction continues, with service interruptions and poor performance, then their daily users will plummet, a death spiral, and they'll be out of business virtually overnight (slight pun).
