Grindr launched a new version of their premier all-male mobile location-based app, which has been rebuilt from the ground up to deliver a faster, more engaging experience for its seven million-plus users around the globe. The latest iteration of Grindr and Grindr Xtra for iOS and Android devices features a sleek design, an optimized user interface and many additional features that users will find helpful in their quest to find their ideal guy. The app has also been completely redesigned for iOS 7.
“We rewrote the software for the new Grindr with a focus on speed – giving our users the ability to meet other guys in mere minutes. We did that by strengthening the app’s reliability and performance, and by introducing ‘Tribes’ and other filters to make it even simpler for men to identify themselves and find exactly what they’re looking for,” said Joel Simkhai, founder and CEO of Grindr. “Get ready for a whole new level of user personalization, speed and convenience to the Grindr experience, along with many added capabilities for Grindr Xtra users – all in a new sleek design.”
“The new versions of Grindr and Grindr Xtra come at an exciting time as we’ve seen an impressive level of engagement among our users,” added Simkhai. During the last month, Grindr guys sent one billion chat messages to each other. They also exchanged one billion photos and logged in one billion times in a two month time span. Additionally, Grindr delivers an astounding one billion ad impressions in just under two weeks.
The new app is set to revolutionize the Grindr experience for the user base, which is by far the largest,
farthest-reaching and widest-ranging of any gay mobile social app. It provides heightened functionality
and performance, including new filters and a slide-screen menu, and a revamped aesthetic, such as a
restyled Grindr logo and modern profile design, making it that much faster to meet even more guys.
New Grindr features include:
*Powered by all-new software for enhanced speed and performance, the new Grindr has a sleek design that includes updates to its logo and profile.

* A new Chats inbox feature enables users to see all their past conversations; view chats from
