  • The constant crashes are making me want to uninstall

    By Master Sol
    After the last update I’m having 100% crash rate whenever I use the app. It’s becoming a huge turn-off.

  • Growlr Review

    By Marlon Kelsey
    A great tool to meet like minded guys whom identify with lgbt’s Bear Community. Rates are reasonable but I’m disappointed about their advertising practices. They tend to contradict themselves regarding their SHOUT policies. The constant warning of objectionable speech is not necessary when many appear to be quite graphic in nature. GROWLr could also benefit by using or encouragement of diversity. There appears to be bias towards those of color.
  • Currently Unusable

    By B Jennings
    I used to love this app but something (and I don’t know what) happened to it. You can no longer enjoy it because now everything is micro transactions. It might not be so bad forking out $$$ to upgrade if you could enjoy using WITHOUT THE BARRAGE OF SPAM. I literally get one or two spam messages EVERY 5 MINUTES. As soon as I log in it’s endless bots sending spam messages saying to visit their blogs. It’s annoying and it’s the reason I deleted the app and canceled my membership.
