  • Does not save profile

    By duddlzz
    This app will not allow you to create and save a profile. Without that you cannot even connect with guys. Tried contacting support but no response.... what a waste.
  • Meh. Another info harvester

    By INWDC
    This app is okay. It’s your typical personal info harvester designed to keep your eyes on the app as much as possible. Just make sure you read how they use your personal info- given all the problems at Facebook, this app has way less privacy standards. Also, they will show profiles on your grid that haven’t been active in quite awhile ( tested this several times with multiple profiles on multiple devices and sure enough they show up).
  • Going downhill fast

    By iPod Toucher 69
    Don't bother with this app. Every forced "upgrade" leads to fewer free functions and less accurate geopositioning. There's plenty of spam advertising though! Too bad there are so many blank, faceless or fake profiles. It was a good idea when it started. Now it's just a revenue stream. The developers got greedy. And no, I'm not interested in getting into a back-and-forth with the developers who respond to every review. The fact is, the app used to be worthwhile and now it's crap and they're trying to make it look good by appearing to have good customer service. If the app was decent they wouldn't have to do all this PR.

    I can't send messages and can't log into support because your reset password link takes me to a login page!! I have no way of contacting support or sending messages!
  • Bad decision

    By ac0mputerguru
    So, every time I fire up the app, it tells me I need to upgrade and FORCES me to go to the App Store. The App Store eventually pops up that the new version requires iOS 10 and I can FINALLY go back to the app and login in like I wanted to. Very annoying and already got me wanting to delete this app, I mean, it's not like I don't have five other apps to do the same thing. Most of my devices are iOS 9.3; I understand things advance, however, you'll loose me (and probably quite a few other folks) when you completely drop 9 support. Admittedly that's no big loss in either direction.
  • auto offline

    By iHate iTunes
    Add a privacy option (default “off”) that you can turn on to automatically take your profile offline when your profile color dot goes silver.
  • Rude support, not responsive to customer requests

    By Urban Panther
    The developer needs to learn that a feature may be working as designed, but if it doesn’t work the way their customers want it to, it’s not working correctly. Paid version only allows a maximum of 2000 blocks and hides, because (according to Scruff support), more than that causes app performance to degrade unacceptably. Other dating apps have solved this problem, but Scruff support were adamant that it’s not a problem and therefore they are not going to change how this works. Instead, they directed me to use their search feature, which also isn’t as robust as it could be, and doesn’t solve the problem I have, which is that the only way to get different guys to show up in my feed is to block or hide the ones who are already shown (so that there is room for other profiles to be displayed). Again the answer from Scruff support was “this is working as designed and we’re not going to change it.” These answers would be unacceptable from the company I work for, and pretty much any other company I’ve encountered. This developer needs to learn that their paying customers are their most important customers, and the customer is always right. Again, “working as designed” is not the same as “working correctly” if it’s not working how your customers want it to.
  • Limited content

    By Benarcher888
    Restricted historical message content
  • Fake pictures

    By komi973
    There are so many fake pictures at this app. Just be careful.
  • Better than most apps!

    By Jordan Sable
    Works great. Can see people near by or around the globe. Definitely a diverse set of guys to talk to. No crazy amounts of pop ups like Grindr has now. Just such a great app. Whomever the team is running it are good people. They get what people want in an app. Not 1 complaint.
