Overview of the Grindr app
Grindr was launched in 2009 and since then it has been the most popular online dating platform for gay, lesbian, trans and bi. It uses geolocation to display users in the vicinity and has over 27 million members worldwide.
In 2018, developers added HIV status to the user profile, generating a lot of controversy and criticism. But Grindr assured the participants that this information is internal and is not shared with third parties and advertisers. However, it is recommended to indicate their sexual health – to indicate their HIV status, date of last test.
The design of the application is simple as the developers have focused on users rather than functionality. Grindr is very easy to learn, simple to navigate.
