  • Not What I Thought

    By Urbancityguy75
    The title speaks for itself
  • It’s decent

    By AMcKWolf
    I like the user base of the app but it looks like dirt, the ads are just annoying and sometimes don’t even work (meaning you can’t close them even when they allow it) and for some dumb reason you can’t rotate the app on the iPad. I’ve spent about a grand total of 17 hours in XCode and I’ve made 7 apps that can rotate on the iPad AND the Plus/Max model phones. It takes hardly anything to do.
  • Growlr service is temporarily unavailable

    By Biscuit Bear 69
    That’s what I get four or fiver times PER DAY! What’s that? You wish to retrieve your old account that you shouldn’t have deleted just three days ago? No. Not happening. Your screwed. Someone’s using your picture as their profile picture? You know you can just block them, right?
  • New app

    By O'Rahe
    You guys should create a new app for twinks that wanna hook up. Just an idea.
  • Annoying Ads

    By mnd01890
    I’m no longer using this app. The ads are loud and hijack my phone
  • Bad!!

    By cjm1199
    Growlr has this ad. That ad is so long I’ll never use that company. The Pro renew won’t accept my cc. Bad. Growlr needs to stop being greedy.
  • Too many advertisements

    By pommrenn
    Every time I log in and check the free version, an advertisement for another downloadable game comes up. It’s annoying.
  • Ad revenue

    By LarryJamieson
    I get it that you use Ads for people who do not play for the service, but now those Ads make noise that can’t be gotten around or quickly shut off. This is a fantastic way to stop people from using the app. Mute the Ads, it makes it impossible to use discretely.
  • Used to be great...

    By AaronW94
    Used to great, until they started installing ads that ignore whether you have your phone on silent mode or not. I really want weird 70’s porn music playing for an ad for a straight dating app (really??) when I’m in the middle of my office.
  • Ads play music on silent mode

    By stonic
    The extremely intrusive ads play loud music even when a phone is set to silent mode.
