Ratings and Reviews
Rude support, not responsive to customer requests
The developer needs to learn that a feature may be working as designed, but if it doesn’t work the way their customers want it to, it’s not working correctly. Paid version only allows a maximum of 2000 blocks and hides, because (according to Scruff support), more than that causes app performance to degrade unacceptably. Other dating apps have solved this problem, but Scruff support were adamant that it’s not a problem and therefore they are not going to change how this works. Instead, they directed me to use their search feature, which also isn’t as robust as it could be, and doesn’t solve the problem I have, which is that the only way to get different guys to show up in my feed is to block or hide the ones who are already shown (so that there is room for other profiles to be displayed). Again the answer from Scruff support was “this is working as designed and we’re not going to change it.” These answers would be unacceptable from the company I work for, and pretty much any other company I’ve encountered. This developer needs to learn that their paying customers are their most important customers, and the customer is always right. Again, “working as designed” is not the same as “working correctly” if it’s not working how your customers want it to.
Your feedback and suggestions are very important. We have communicated your feedback regarding additional blocks to the product team for consideration as we plan future improvements. WOOF!
Three reason... +1
I dislike the amount of people that use scruff. That’s it, truthfully, I can’t thing of any other grievances.
At first glance the interface is wonky (Being that all gay boys start on Grindr).
However, Scruff has amazing capabilities! Everything I could ever ask for in an app of this sort is there, it’s very well thought out.
Some of my favorite things are the private photo albums •You can quickly catch a guys attention by unlocking, rather than a nearly invisible ‘hey’•The human body is art, one should capture it is ways that communicate that and share often•
I also love the fact that you can jot quick notes about someone for yourself •I don’t have PRO at the moment but this would be something I’d us after every conversation•He likes/dislikes... Don’t talk to him he... *giggles*•
Lastly I enjoy the match sectioning the app •I think it’s super cutesy•It keeps me coming back just about every day, there aren’t very many profiles that catch my attention in my area [What can I say, I’m out of their leagues]•It’s an awesome way to see profiles that I do not come by on a day to day bases•
Okay, okay, okay; This is really the last one. The ability to search lNo need to elaborate•
Truthfully Grindr gets more attention than it deserves and I wish more people would use scruff. Pleeeaasssss make it happen some how!!! But only allow the men... I like men not boys... MEN 😍
Thanks for your comments! We're happy to hear that you're enjoying SCRUFF and all its features. Thanks for being a valued member of our community. WOOF!
Pop-up ads and hijacking!
UPDATE: over a month later, Scruff is still randomly hijacking the entire screen with pop-up ads!! Not content with all the banner ads they already served, they are now actively interrupting their users in an apparent attempt to wring profits from accidental ad taps. Look elsewhere if you want a usable, non-obnoxious dating app. ORIGINAL REVIEW: I recently started getting random browser launches (accompanied by very loud sounds) and app-store hijacking while using Scruff, pushing "free iPhones" and games full of in-app purchases. I complained, and was told that their "ad partner" sometimes lets these things slip through, and that I should help them track these ads down. Guess what? Instead of screening ads in-house, they're being cheap and trusting a third party (with a history of these kinds of lapses) to do it instead - exposing their users to, at best, obnoxious nuisances and, at worst, scams and malware... and then asking their users do the screening for them! Scruff: your prices are so high that you should take some of that money and use it to set up in-house ad screening. Until then, I view having Scruff on my phone as a security risk.
