Customer Reviews

The best app to find get men worldwide.

I've been using scruff about 4 years now, and it's hands down the best app to find other guys. It's got fantastic features and really good add value for pro members, the app is always reliable and there are never bots. Once you use Scruff it seems amazing Grindr has an user base at all. In addition to great features and reliability, the app tends to attract articulate, educated men which is another way it trumps the competition. I suppose it's a self fulfilling prophecy --scruff never limits your to 140 characters and because of that you get it all from hookups to dates. Big fan!

The new app update took some getting used to and there are some features that are now buried or hard to find at all. But they've already released an update with marked improvements and it seems like they are taking user feedback into account. Worth taking the free account for a spin and staying around for the pro features.

Nice app

Is a pretty decent app. One of the better ones out of all the others like it. I do miss the feature where you were able to save the picture to either your private album or your phone/device. The new version removed that ability. I can understand the need for it as these are individuals pictures. Still.
What really sets Scruff aside from the other apps (like A4A and Grindr) is that Scruff has incorporated the 'would you be interested in meeting this person' and the extension of 'the Stack' where Scruff randomly selects profiles from the thousands around the world and you say if you would be interested or not. If there's an indicated interest from both parties, you are alerted and it's then up to you to make contact.

The other new features for this version of the Scruff app is the 'who's online, New Members, Who got Woofed the Most; Most Woofed New Member and Who's Online Now Globally/Locally. Previously it was just who was online now gloves and local. These new sections allows you to see more guys' profile than before.

I'm still disappointed on what they're asking for the subscription amount and the limits given to those who don't subscribe. But I'm not running the app so it's not up to me.

Scruff is sexier and more responsive than Grindr

I enjoy the selection of guys that scruff attracts more than any other app. The guys are friendlier. Scruff's capacity to browse outside your current area if planning a trip is another plus over other apps. Unlike Grindr, you can track if someone viewed you profile which I especially like because it serves as a way of knowing whether or not someone read your message to them or not.
