Accessibility issue for the visually impaired

I have a friend with a visual impairment who is not able to send voice messages in Grindr, which is the most accessible way for him to communicate with other users. The app developers have not made the microphone button within the app’s messenger work in a way that interfaces with the iPhone Voiceover feature. In other words, Voiceover is unable to “see” the button and make it accessible for a user with a visual impairment. Come on, Grindr! Most other messaging apps have this functionality. Can this please be addressed to make the app more accessible? We’ve just celebrated PRIDE. Let’s make it possible for that to include all of us...

Grindr review

The ‘distance’ finder on Grindr is dreadful. I live in a mountainous region. Grindr judges the next person closest to me by distance IN A STRAIGHT LINE, instead of by actual road. This gives a false distance. For example it may show a person as being 8 miles from my location, when in actual fact he is more like 30 miles away from me! Grindr needs to fix this badly. They need the app to access ‘maps’ on the phone/tablet in order to determine a true distance.
Secondly, we all find the adverts extremely annoying I’m sure. (I am not paying for membership to Grindr to be ‘ad free’ until they get their act together). I tolerate the ads. HOWEVER what I find unacceptable is the fact that even though my phone is switched to silent , the adverts still play their stupid tunes out loud on my phone! Grindr you CANNOT DO THIS! Its totally unacceptable.
Thirdly, my account has been ‘banned’ twice in as many months. As far as I’m concerned, I have done nothing wrong and really have no clue why I was banned. To not be told why I was banned is totally unacceptable. Grindr this is wrong! It is wrong for you to ban people’s accounts without telling them the reason for doing so!
There are so many things wrong with Grindr. This is just the tip of the iceberg!
Grindr please take note.

Virus in Grindr?

Had a major virus attack on my iPhone the last few days. Took over my phone trying to send out malicious emails and content along with sharing my photographs via social media channels. Was able to turn my airplane mode off and on when I tried to stop it and convert language settings to Chinese. Tried everything short of erasing my phone to stop it but it now seems to have been resolved with the deletion of Grindr this morning. I suspect something was embedded within all your advertised content or redirects that was pretty advanced. Would warn everyone about this if you feel your phone is feeling sluggish. I just managed to stop my personal content being shared and thankfully was using the phone when the 2 hour attack started on Thursday. From all the review responses it’s pretty clear the app is pretty much out of control now. Will not be reinstalling this again. Far too risky. Buyer be very aware! I am sure Grindr will respond with this usual standard copy and paste response.
