Excellent app

Love this app think it’s a lot better than the other gay hookup and dating apps. With in 2-3 days made my self a little fan base. also have meet some very hot. Overall if your looking for different experience that as limited as grizzly, Baskit, and daddy hunt your looking at the right app. I would say that I think its worth putting money into this app. Free basics are excellent, when you liked and ask for to many private photos it can be limited. I would recommend buying the subscription it’s worth it.

Great app, but is it possible...

Would it be possible to be able to manually update the ‘worldwide’ photo feed; maybe by pulling down from the top like you would other apps? I only ask because when you open the app from being closed and see someone of interest...if I don’t tap their profile fast enough, it goes away and it’s VERY difficult to find them again as the app auto reloads with the latest photos. Scrolling downwards doesn’t guarantee that I’ll see the profile again depending on how long it’s been since that photo has been posted.

Hello, thank you for your remark. We will see if it is possible to implement it in a next version. Best regards

Fun App, Steep Price, Annoyances

The concept is great, tumblr meets instagram with a heavier social aspect blended in. Lots of pictures of men from across the world, tap to like their photo, they can tap to like your photo, then you can chat. So that part is great and works mostly well.

The most annoying thing about the app is that when you leave the app and return it auto refreshes and puts you back to the top of the photo feed. So then you can to scroll with all of the pics you’ve already seen to get back to where you started. I’d get it if I left the app for more than say 15-20 minutes. But to answer a text message then go back a minute later and have it refresh. Grrrr!

The other thing, the price. I’m all about supporting apps but there has to be a balance. A paid membership is $80 a year! This seems pretty steep for being able to see videos, not much value. If it were $40 a year I’d be alright with that because the app is fun to use.

Otherwise the free version is still a lot of fun.
