Grindr has been described by users as a “revolutionary dating tool,” as well as the “scariest gay bar on earth.” Either way, Grindr has made an indelible mark on the dating scene for gay men, winning awards like the “Best Dating Application” in 2012 by Readers’ Choice Awards and the Best Mobile Dating App and Best New Technology by the Dating Industry and Internet Dating Conference in 2012.
For men who want to forgo long and invasive questionnaires given out by overly complex online dating services, Grindr offers an uncomplicated dating service.
Grindr versus Other Dating Applications Unlike popular online dating services such as Match or e Harmony, one of the benefits of Grindr is convenience and speed: you do not have to email the person you are interested in for over a week and wait for days to set up a date.
Users prefer Grindr over other mobile dating applications such as Skout or Tingle, as it claims the most users and offers the biggest dating “pool.” In the 2012 Readers Choice Awards, 74 percent of readers preferred Grindr over these other mobile dating apps.
We know that value goes beyond a single engagement or a single result.
