  • no more spambots please

    By kleegnitz
    decent app, but the spam bots the past few weeks have gotten out of control. fix this, please!
  • Intrusive ads

    By chpk98
    I rarely write reviews of apps, but the obnoxiously-loud ads that GROWLr have inserted are too much. I get ads - I don’t pay for the app, and accept that ads are part of that choice. However, when an ad plays loudly, even when my phone is on silent, with no easy way to stop it, that’s a step too far. It’s more strange that these ads seem to be for another gay dating app; not sure why GROWLr wants to advertise its competition. But maybe this other app doesn’t play intrusive ads, so they might be worth checking out. I’ll have space on my phone if GROWLr needs to be deleted.
  • Stop the ads with sound!!!!!

    By dcjimr
    When your phone is on mute (like in meetings or on public transport) the last thing you need is for your phone to start blaring out an ad! This is getting as bad as other apps I’ve deleted.
  • Trying to become a member🤬

    Terrible time signing up! Keeps saying your email or password doesn’t work or is invalid! How can it be invalid? It’s my email! I’ve reset my password several times! Same answer!Beashballs2
  • Starting to see spam

    By iTouch3348_
    In April 2019, I’m starting to see evidence of spam bots. Typical message: H︆︆i!!! I li︆︆kе︆︆d y︆︆our b︆︆оdy, I want t︆︆o take yo︆︆u t︆︆o di︆︆screet s︆︆е︆︆x p︆︆аr︆︆ty.Follow to the sitе- Then a URL. I see get these once a day, always comes from a new blank profile that doesn’t show in recent viewers. Seems that someone has access a backdoor method to send messages. I like this app, but if it becomes a spam farm, I have to delete it.
  • Super prissy about photos

    By bdiebsosoab
    This app and others seem to be extremely prissy about what photos are posted and sometimes don’t even make sense why they take things down or out of your profile. The design of the app makes it look like Its from 2006 as well. Unfortunately not many other options for those of us only using this app for international travel reasons since it lets you talk to people in foreign countries for free.
  • Issa no for me dawg

    By Pop-mo
    Ever since Coley sold the app to the Meet Group all I get are fake news ads 😪
  • Aggressive advertising

    Shows ads before every action the app is useful for. Kinda backfired when they showed me ads for other dating apps. One out of every five messages will be from a bot account advertising a Russian porn site.
  • Ads and scammers

    By plowisajerk
    Fullscreen 15 second ads, a horrendously regulated barrage of scammers, and an unreliable messaging service, oh my! Three days in a row of being messaged almost instantly when I log on means there's some idiot with a host of Android VMs spamming anyone he sees. It's too late to fix, just delete your account like I did.
  • Used to be great

    By Cuboy4u
    I have paid for PRO can’t ever use it all I get is error loading. BTW there is no app support. When I did email app support to discuss paying for pro and not receiving the features all communications ended. for apple uses as far as billing goes. Go under manage your Subscriptions to end the auto billing
