  • Profile Issues.

    By Johnathan Gentz
    This app will not allow me to have a photo. They say it has to be a clear pic of my face and I have been denied over and over because they say it’s not clear enough. I have an iPhone X how much more clear do they want?
  • Free scruff isn’t worth the price

    By srogoff40
    Couldn’t afford the scruff pro anymore after losing my job. Discovered what a complete waste of time scruff basic is totally. Disgraceful. Shame on these horrible engineers and rip off artists.
  • Good

  • Disappointed

    By David12534
    I’ve been using this app for quite some time many years to be more accurate and have recently had a profile photo of myself in costume at a convention removed citing that the member is not in the picture basically saying that I don’t exist because the costume was from a specific fandom that all I can gather just simply doesn’t fit their mold and this is after having customer support tell me it was an accident that my picture was flagged and I should be able to post it and now I’m basically being ignored by the support team and my account is now on the verge of being banned for re posting the picture that I was told was ok to post , utterly disappointed in the way this has been handled , pretty much being told to go put my self expression back in the closet ... and by a gay hook up app nonetheless .... honestly I expected better but I’m not surprised

    Scruff is a much better app than Grindr. You will find better looking guys and the app features are much better than Grindr. I switched from Grindr Extra to Scruff Pro and I couldn’t be happier!!
  • Greedy Gays

    By ohhhjeff
    The Scruff team is really getting greedy. So now, even recent chat messages and images (as recent as 30 minutes ago), are only accessible with a PRO subscription. That’s bad. No wonder my buddies are bailing on this app.
  • Do not subscribe to Scruff!!!

    By MGarizona
    Try to purchase a one-month subscription to Scruff and they’ll charge you for a year and no refunds. Total scam. Be careful
  • I will change my rating when they fix their mistake.

    They banned me for no other reason than some guy wrongly reported me for impersonation. I’ve used the same exact photo for almost a year now! I have the uncropped version of my photo as well as the four others my foster sister and I took while laughing on the floor upstairs. I have the adidas hat hanging up in my room as I type this! Someone can wrongly or mistakenly report someone for impersonation, and this app immediately bans you without allowing the accused person the RIGHT to defend themselves or prove that it’s a false accusation. This is dead wrong. There should be some sort of “soft-ban” that allows users to be able to prove they were wrongly accused of impersonating someone. I guess I rejected the wrong guy and he got butt hurt, so he reported me, bc he’s too prideful to realize he’s not God’s gift to all men. It’s ridiculous they have this policy in place. There should be an EASY way to PROVE a person is who they say they are!
