  • Not A Great App That Works

    By goldenmean
    There are lots of little interface problems and no way I can find to search profile names. But it gets the job done.
  • Good app but lacking things

    By thelucabrazzi
    I do like the app a lot but even as a paying member you can only see some of the people that surround you it is way, way too limited to the amount of people you can see. If you are paying it pretty much should be unlimited range of say 50 miles. Also, if you change your phone you lose all your messages and pics.

    I’ve paid for growlr pro and can not access the benefits of the subscription. Too bad there is no one to talk to that can handle this.
  • So many ads

    Why so many ads.
  • “Polar Bears”

    By SAW1261
    What exactly are “Polar Bears”? My belief is that the term describes men who identify as either “white” or “Caucasian” males though some men believe the term refers to men with white beards. I thought that’s what “Silver Daddy” meant. Shame on Growlr IF they are intentionally singling out one racial group over others in this manner. Unlike some I don’t believe the “bear community” is any more sensitive to issues of race than any other part of the LGBTQ community. People have their desires and preferences that we all have to negotiate somehow. IF Growlr is taking a position that white males deserve a specific designation then it should explain why or consider removing this label. I encourage others to contact Growlr and ask them to address this matter.

    What a useless app.
  • One of the Best! Please add clickable links and Hanky code

    By wellsure
    Any way you could make links clickable or able to be copied? Also, would love to see a hanky color code option added into profiles. I've had the most positive "meetings"with men through this app. Thank you.
