Search function is crap

Why does it keep showing me profiles that are outside of the ranges I set? This is basic programming.

Block list

If you're going to allow all the fake profiles and spam bots allow us an unlimited block list. Otherwise this app is a waste.

Don’t trust anyone

I had a catfish asking for a $300 Amazon gift card. If I didn’t give it to him he treated to tell my family and friends I been sharing nude over the internet. I won’t be using the app ever again My personal safety is more important.

Bad update

Need another fix
By Arab lover no 1

Great Potential

The new live video does has great potential. There still is a lot of spam on the app. With the live video for no reason the comments just stop. I see more people joining but the join comment doesn’t even appear, which makes me think it’s a bug and people aren’t just talking. Plus people have told me they were commenting when nothing appeared.

Pro Membership not worth the purchase.

A standard joining will suffice. Don’t waste your money on a pro-membership. I purchased a pro membership. My experience has been disappointing. In maneuvering through features, I found it no different from a standard non-membership. There was no real increase in visible profiles. The search features do not work at all, even using current online members as samples to confirm results, only received a “no match” responses when I knew otherwise based on active members at the time. I did reach out to developer regarding issue and potential refund if features are not available, only to be disregarded and redirected by developer to iTunes, which gave me no options for a refund request. My impression is the developer is only looking to make money off people who will settle for subpar services, versus offering any resolution to an issue. In my opinion, membership is not worth it.

This app is pretty bare bones in terms of features and construction. You can only have one public photo at a time, the interface is very outdated, and the online indicator icon is always on if you've been online in the last 24 hours which is annoying as hell. Some of these issues might be solved by paying for Pro but for an already mediocre-at-best app, why throw money at them when an app like Scruff has more features for free? The positives are that it's pretty bear friendly but so is Scruff which is already a better app.

Poor customer service

No answer from anyone when login problems persist. Paying members beware!
By dr big boy bob


It is unbelievably hypocritical to have such a an app that is for hooking yo but you won’t let someone take you their shirt off. You need to let people be free. It’s sour and most people won’t want to use your product

Thanks For The Notifications!

Even though I turn all GROWLr notifications off, my phone volume is both all the way down and on SILENT the GROWLr app decides to ring its 100% unique and distinct notification tone through my home because I wanted to open the app and not tell everyone in the house!
