Ratings and Reviews
It’s a pretty good app for bigger guys
Aside from the formatting of some of the features it’s definitely a good alternative if you’re a bit on the heavier side. Or even if you’re just into bigger guys. Honestly the only things I would complain about are sort of nit picky. I don’t love the color scheme, and the way you get to some of the features.
I think a darker theme could be cool, like a night mode or something. Or the option to customize the color scheme or something. Just something to set this app apart a bit more. Make the other devs jealous lol idk.
Honestly my primary issue right now is one I’m not sure of the cause for, but it’s probably just me. When I’m using my Data I can get on just fine. But using my moms home Wifi it won’t get off of the load screen. And I don’t have this issue with any other apps. Though, Bumble can’t locate me, and I don’t have cell service at my moms place. So I can’t just use data. So, that kinda hinders my usage of the app for the moment. But oh well I guess. That’s probably just a me problem.
This app is the greatest I’ve ever used, and the primary reason is because most of the profiles are people just like me instead of just a handful, and it’s NOT dominated by twinks and people looking for a fit and trim body. I’m a large guy. And I’m finding that most of the guys messaging me are looking for just that. I was practically ignored on every other social app I tried bc I didn’t look like a ken doll, and that takes a toll on your self esteem after a while. With Growlr, I had several people messaging and chatting with me within just a few hours after making a profile. I can’t believe the response. If you’re a guy with a few extra pounds (or you like them that way), and you’re sick and tired of the attitudes from the people looking for the perfect athletic body, I highly suggest you try this app. I think you’ll be surprised.
Honestly this is the best app for my taste. I’m a cub/bear and love big guys/bears. So this is a perfect site to find them. BUT I think you could improve it. Please try to do what Scruff does. For instance, when are checking on someone global, you could list the guys according to its distance. The ones closer to me should come first and so on... Another great feature at scruff is the way we send Picts. Picts remain there already. They are stored. You just need to check them and they (many at the same time) go altogether to the guy I’m chatting with. Here I have to send one by one. Too much work.
In the end I use scruff all the time. Waaaaay more than Growlr. Because it’s just more practical to use it. I’m even a PRO member on scruff without paying a cent (probably bcs I use it a lot, they gave me that perk).
Honestly I’d rather use Growlr much more. Because guys here are just my type. Much more than those muscle guys. So please I beg you to improve the way to use the features here... so you can have many more customers.
