Constantly eats messages

I can’t tell you how many messages I’ve lost because they simply won’t load, and when you restart the app they simply disappear. I’m not going to continue paying for a membership.

Used to love it....

I pay for the premium service but can’t access it.

Body shaming advertising, but still better than Grindr

But really, Have to wonder how sadistic the app creators are when there’s constant advertisements for getting your weight down, on an app that’s a favorite by the chub and bear communities?!?

Kind of Primitive for 2019

By now you should be able to “handoff” this app and use it across multiple devices (ex: messages should and could appear on my iPad AND my iPhone), but somehow the developers haven’t figured that one out. By contrast Scruff has managed to do this smoothly. There’s Alison only one orientation for this app: portrait. I pay for the pro version of this app, but these small inconveniences are causing me to consider dropping my pro subscription.

Very cool GROWLr app

It’s very simple to use what I like and the pictures stand out nicely then the other gay apps out there wouldn’t have it any other way but GROWLr app

Poor Customer Service our way to contact them!

Recently been attacked saying my photo is in violation yet there is nothing wrong with it. There is NO WAY to contact customer service AND I am a paid subscriber! Will someone please respond to my concerns? There is no customer service our way to contact Growlr ADMIN through the app or on Twitter. Very frustrated with this business model.

Too Tiny

This is staying 1 star until you fix those tiny icons. Just no.

Anti-Virus threat

Recently installed Norton Anti-virus, Xfinity gives free license to customers, and every time I open GROWLr, Norton warns me to not use it. Gives me a phishing warning.
