If you have an iPhone most likely you have the Grindr app. If you don't have the Grindr app, you've probably been hiding under a rock for the last year or you're in a committed monogamous relationship and have no use for this cruising/hook-up application.
Based in Los Angeles, California, Grindr is a start-up dedicated to finding new ways for people to connect. Our mobile phone application uses creative technology to help users make new friends and reconnect with old ones. Gay, bi, and curious guys looking for a date can find him on Grindr, a location-based mobile social networking app available on iTunes. This free location-based service works with the Apple iPhone or iPod touch to connect local users in seconds. It’s fast, fun, and easy to use—offering profiles, photos, and stats at a touch. And unlike other social networks, Grindr is mobile and works based on your location. Grindr uses the GPS technology in the iPhone and Wi-Fi in the iPod touch to determine your exact location and instantly shows photos of the guys around you.
Don't have an iPhone? Well, don't worry. On the occasion of its one-year anniversary, Grindr, the largest all-male mobile location-based networking service, is sharing a very special gift with the mobile community. Today, the groundbreaking service proudly announces the new Grindr app for BlackBerry which will bring the innovative social networking application that has signed up over half a million iPhone and iPod touch users over the course of the past year to BlackBerry users around the world.
