Omg Ilove this app so much

I’ve heard tons of complaints about Grindr and many other dating/hookup apps that are full of ads and freeze a lot and are full of spam. Now we have VGL to change the game and save us all from the crap apps and give us a fun easy hookup for the gay community. Like the layout and that you can subscribe to people like a Facebook feed with pictures which is unique. You can tell that the developers care about changing the dating/hookup app atmosphere and they’re certainly doing it with VGL. There’s some tech glitches which can probably be easily fixed so I don’t worry about it the app makes it all okay. The app is obviously still growing it’s amazing so far thank you guys so much for developing such a perfect dating app for all those guys out there like myself that just want someone to talk to. And dang where’d you find these guys some of them are super cute. Good job!😁😉

Getting there, but not there yet.

Pros: It's not Grindr! This app holds a lot of potential for a lot of really cool features, slowly growing members but is picking up momentum.

Cons: Interface still needs a lot of work, Tutorial for first time users is not present, almost everything past messaging requires membership, often laggy and kinda slow, current selection of members seems very limited

Suggestions: Work on interface to create better fluidity while using the app and user friendliness, I feel a lot of resources are allocated inappropriately (for example, I saw a guy with over 50+ photos on here, that's gotta be heavy on your end for cloud data), OFFER A TRIAL of VIP, so many of your cool features I would like to see exactly how I like them prior to subscribing, Im not going to blindly subscribe to something when I am receiving messages to subscribe at every button push! Have a look into color psychology, I feel the chosen color scheme isn't very pleasing to the eye, I do feel relief upon closing the app as I no longer have to look at Orange all the time. May be too late for a rebranding, but I do have to express my distaste for the name of the app, as we all have different types as to what upholds someone to be very good looking. My degree was in Marketing, I feel a little less pretentious of a name could go much further as the name alone initially made me not want to download the app at fear of running into solely pretentious wannabe model queens 👑.

Keeps Getting Better

Ban using app for a LONG time, started off just trading pics and talking to some really hot guys (but it was usually long distance). Now that’s changing, I’m actually meeting, real local people, in person.
The free features are amazing and very generous, you can do pretty much everything you need to meet the man of your dreams without paying a cent - but there are advantages to premium. It’s a lot classier than Gr*nder or Scr*ff - and the quality of guys blows most other apps out of the water.
Very user friendly and you’ll never miss a new guy with the feed feature - not to mention you’ll get every update on the men you follow or like. Just the right amount of features, very few fakes, quality, friendly guys and now that more and more are joining this app is top notch and my main go to when I need some fun.
