How did this happen?

How the heck can something so established and successful go so wrong!? Was the app or website not tested before going live?

It looks to me that they tried to copy their competitor Planetromeo which works sooooo well by comparison. The previous white/orange layout was clean, tidy and now this ugly blue dominated plasterboard has replaced not only the fine details of the previous version but, is simply ugly on the eye. I work in design and I ask who came up with this outdated layout and graphic. As a member…like many others will not be renewing and, I notice already they are touting special promos. There are far better functionality websites like Planetromeo where subscription is in parallel to the service. Like many well established brands on our High Streets have left us because of poor planning, it looks like Gaydar have really f…ed up on this improved version. However Gaydar are likely to be respected if they were to restore the previous version…it worked, it was a good design and it had functionality – this is where they could win points instead of loosing subscribers by the large volumes. This review is not intended to be cruel but, honest and more importantly, constructive.

Final update -
I’ve given Gaydar the chance and remained a VIP - I have no problem with the features which are now working fine. The sad thing is that all the guys have now abandoned the site. I have traveled to areas renowned for a large gay population and find there are no guys on line at all ( where as other apps are teaming with guys). So consequently, there is no point in paying for a VIP status anymore and I will most probably delete it altogether. Sorry guys but the improvements came too late.

Oh dear what have they done with this new version. It just doesn't seem to work. Less features, less information and it looks as though not many people are using it anymore. If it doesn't improve soon, I certainly won't be renewing my subscription. Update- my subscription ran out and they didn't even send a reminder. Appears that they couldn't care less about long standing members. So now I'm no longer a VIP and get even less features. Not that it makes any difference, no one is using gaydar anymore anyway. Will be deleting soon.

Hey C-Hadders!

How are you getting on with the new app and site? Are you still finding that it is not working for you? If so, please do let our support team know ( Please keep an eye on both the site and app over the coming weeks as we plan to add a new feature which will greatly help you find the guys you want faster

Awful interface, really really bad! Not usable.

Gaydar is more than 1 year late bringing out an iPhone app (compared to Grindr), and is this the best they could come out with?
The interface is the worst I have ever seen in an iPhone app (and I own more than 200 apps); completely non-standard (not using Apple's built in buttons, widgets, interface elements), ugly as hell, super slow, and it is extremely badly designed and user-unfriendly (e.g. it hides the top bar with signal strength, and many of the screens require scrolling down and right, instead of being properly formatted for the iPhone resolution).
It looks like it was developed on a non-Apple platform and then converted hastily by someone who doesn't know anything about proper iPhone interface guidelines (or proper programming skills).
It's so awful that I prefer using Safari and going to the regular desktop Gaydar website (which looks awful on the iPhone as well, but it least it's faster and displays all the pics correctly, and gives you access to all Gaydar features).
Gaydar is going to be completely crushed by Grindr and Qrushr if it doesn't react quickly and redesign this whole app from scratch with a proper interface guru.
The best Gaydar could do is copy exactly the interface of its main competitors, who have done a much much better job: MobileRomeo (best interface, really gorgeous, fast, neat, and very well designed), Qrushr (good idea to have latest people you chat with on top), and Grindr (fast & simple).
