A new addition to the features of ubiquitous gay hook-up mobile app Grindr will see its users be able to categorise themselves into Bears, Jocks, Twinks or Muscle men.
Shown below, the revamped interface and slide-screen menu will also appear in coming weeks, as Grindr celebrates reaching four million love-seeking users.
New screens and filters aim to help the user find what they’re looking for much faster. And a ‘chat’ screen will show recent conversations in a list form. The app’s team say there’s many more new features planned too.
“With 4 million men, Grindr is the best place to meet guys, and we’re introducing the new Grindr, which makes your search a lot easier and faster,” says Grindr founder Joel Simkhai.
Grindr has also released this impressive map showing people logged in at 7:45pm Los Angeles time – that’s lunchtime the next day in Sydney… bleep!
The app’s team says: “The map displays the app’s sheer power and sweeping reach, showing users in even the remotest corners of the world logged into Grindr, and it provides a visual glimpse into the activity of a portion of Grindr’s 1.1 million daily users at just one particular moment in time.”
So, what do you think of the changes? Grindr says there will be more even more categories available along with Bears, Jocks, Twinks or Muscle guys… but will you be comfortable categorising yourself? And which other categories do you think could be added?
