  • Free too restrictive; paid too expensive

    By LeChatParle
    Messages start getting hidden way too soon in a chat to force you to pay for their premium version, but the premium version is way over priced. $15/m to chat with people? I’d consider a dollar or two a month.
  • V5.6024 connection errors!

    By Ali_Mo79
    Updated and the app doesn’t work anymore, connection errors on WiFi and LTE. Don’t upgrade to the latest version!
  • It’s the men

    By KevSeanD
    The app is great - lots of nice features, easy to use, reliable - but the men on Scruff seem more uptight and pretentious than those on other apps. But, in the end, gay men hunting one another is never pretty.
  • Hello!!

    By ross x4
    I am on all of these sites but do not check in all that often ., I find that on Scruff ppl seem to be be less desperate & uptight - Also other sites like these have so much more ageism issues ! I have friends who are 24 up to late 90,s The only important difference at any age is Are you relevant . In an older mans life it is are you still relevant or were you never at all ?!! ❤️
  • Like it

    So far it’s been a great app. Wish the upgrades weren’t so costly.
  • Big Bug on XS Max

    By Khross30
    Whenever I spend extended periods looking at profiles and chatting, the app will randomly make my phone do some kind of quick reset. The screen goes black with a spinning wheel and about 5-10 seconds later I’m back at my lock screen. Not sure what’s causing the issue, it usually happens right after I’ve tapped a profile to open.

    Of all the gay hookup apps, it’s the only one that works all the time - no matter where I’m traveling in the world.
  • It’s for casual sex

    By mitchds84
    It’s for casual sex, Which rocks, gotta love being a man, it’s a privilege. So it does the job. And who knows maybe you can find more then one night stands?!
  • Have connected to many men

    By Ciwboyredneck
    I have connected to many men on scruff and love
  • Better quality people than Grindr

    By jwathen1
    Better people on here but do not like that your texts and photos go to pro and you can not see them. Pro should be for extra items not just to read the messages you have already read as well as photos
