Gay dating app Grindr now on Android

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Associate Editor

Grindr, the popular location-based app Gay men use to find other Gay males in their immediate area, is now available in an Android version.

Grindr, a Los Angeles-based company, has more than 1.65 million regular users in 180 countries worldwide, with London being the app's most popular city.

Grindr for Android, compatible with devices running Android OS 2.1 and higher, offers a photo and location browsing experience, just as the other applications do. Users also can participate in mobile chat sessions with other nearby Grindr members and initiate cross-platform meetings.

The company has grown quickly in its two years of existence. The service currently sees 3,000 new users join each day, and the average user spends 1.3 hours using the app on a daily basis.

Some have criticized Grindr for promoting sexual promiscuity as the service can be used to find sexual partners.

Others have warned about personal safety. 'Programs like Grindr are the new 'Gay bar' of the millennium,' said Daniel Gomez, community engagement manager at The Lesbian & Gay Foundation. 'But a word of caution & use common sense when meeting up with men from the internet. I think sometimes it's easy to forget that not everyone has the same intentions you do when looking to meet men online.'

Grindr has already said it is planning to launch a version for Lesbians as well as straight men and women.
