  • Great App! Aug 24, 2018

    By Bukouras
    I recommend this app for scruff guys and all guys of every kind. I don’t view it as a “hook up” site, and believe although the option is there, it’s also a great place to make new friends. The “venture” feature is amazing and unique for these types of apps. It allows you to search guys in any area around the entire world. If you plan on traveling, I definitely suggest utilizing this feature to meet guys online before you arrive. This enables you to meet potential date, no matter what intent, and allows you to learn about the good spots friendly to our sexuality! I did this when traveling several times, and all I can say is I was very happy and fortunate to have this app. I believe you can get a free trial before upgrading to “Pro”, which will allow you to familiarize yourself with Scruff, and realize why upgrading is not only the best route, but is fair in features and price. Try it out! It’s undoubtedly the best tool out there for meeting new guys. I’d just like to add (because it’s happened to all of us), men on here are way more friendly and courteous. They try to constantly out-do themselves, and will even ask for your opinion or suggestions on any potential changes, but it’s unlikely as this app provides just about everything! Xoxo

  • Young gay hot men! Try Scruff! Mar 17, 2019

    By Hank 68
    Without a doubt Scruff delivers a daily feast of gay men. You can spend hours reading the profiles and viewing face photos of aspiring young gay men on your Smartphone in the privacy of your home or office. You are allowed to “woof” any man that you might fancy. This is purely your individual choice. You can even contact any of these individuals if their profile offers any interest to you. It is up to the individual you try to contact to message you back. It may be problematic as to whether you receive a message back because that is based on mutual interest of looks, hobbies, business interests and numerous other factors. These factors can be included under the very general term of “chemistry”. The basic plan is free. You are limited on the number of guys you can view. It is still very generous on the number of men you can view. For a nominal monthly fee you can upgrade to the “Pro” plan. With this plan you can view many more gay men along with their profiles as well as message any guy you might want. It is very addictive to browse the guys. It is very entertaining as well. I would highly recommend this app! If you are a gay man I guarantee you will enjoy yourself!

  • It’s like that gay version of Facebook Apr 3, 2019

    When I decided to find a new man in my life I joined Scruff and started chatting with guys who live nearby. Seeing how close some guys are is nice because you can both choose whether or not you want to develop a relationship with someone before you get to know them. Something that takes a bit of getting used to though is that the distance that this app shows you is as-the-crow-flys distance. In other words, my boyfriend lives 37 miles away according to the app, but in actuality he’s about an hour’s drive away from me. It might be nice if Scruff utilized Google maps to give you the driving distance instead of what it gives you because it can be misleading. I ultimately found the man of my dreams on Scruff and me and my boyfriend now use Scruff to communicate with each other. We also have an agreement that we can flirt with other guys as long as we’re not looking for potential hookups. Scruff has been wonderful. I have met a lot of new friends in addition to finding my new boyfriend. This app has changed my life for the better!

    A solid app. Great UI/UX. Good number of profiles and middle of the road between a hookup/dating app. Chat history and other histories being locked behind a paywall is annoying though.

    Cannot recommend this app for any reason, but the developer group is not to blame. The app itself is great but the men are just absolutely horrible. It's sad that we as a community have lowered our standards to hookups and open relationships. TL;DR - if you're looking to date, you likely won't find it on this app.

  • Grindr on steroids Dec 8, 2020

    By ih02912
    Scruff is just Grindr on steroids for some reason. People talk about Grindr guys being creepy and awful, but at least you deal with a wide variety of men. This app just has the worst of the awful guys, the lowest of the low in our community; it’s disgusting. This app is geared towards ‘masculine’ men, although it claims to be inclusive (more on that below), so you get all the toxic masculinity that comes along with it. I have been using this app for about 5 years and I’ve only hooked up twice from it for the first time this year. I’m not going to pretend to be a stud, but I’ve always had much better luck on Grindr. It’s only because the personalities of the guys on Scruff make me want to vomit so I lose interest quickly. Even if just for a quick hook up, it’s still not worth it. The app allows you to write more stuff on your profile than Grindr does, which makes some guys write entire essays about their likes and dislikes and that’s where you start seeing all the racism, and internalized homophobia even more. I could go on for hours writing about the kind of guys that get on the app, but it’s clear they only cater to a very particular audience. The app claims to be inclusive and what not, but even the staff is prejudiced. It’s clear that the good reviews mostly come from the same people who contribute the worst our community has to offer. To top it all off, the same guys will message you on Grindr, but not on Scruff. It makes no sense.

  • Rude support, not responsive to customer requests May 15, 2018

    By Urban Panther
    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.

    Who decided to put the location button there? It needs to be moved, it's right next to the button to send a message. So many times I've almost sent my location by mistake.
  1. Explore the profiles of more than 12 million guys! Get to know tons of interesting people and find the relationship you want
  2. Chat history never disappears, so you always have a record of your conversations, no matter how old they are
  3. Venture feature is a great resource for world travelers! Learn all about fun activities, recommended by locals, in cities around the world

    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 😍

    is what we’re looking for on here, in the end. why not come down to the one of most popular spots in town where you can get attention and validation from people who are seeking attention and validation from someone that isn’t you! bored? hop on Scruff. horny? let’s go! sad and having an existential crisis about it you’ll ever meet someone while continuing to engage in toxic social media habits that further distance us as a community by having us pick one another like fresh meat, well then this app is for you! you’ll love when you have a great conversation and then the person disappears. you’ll have such fun overthinking! and if you’re looking for something quick and easy, this is the app for you! careful though, the eager ones get a little clingy.

    Scruff has always been a great app. I constantly have the app shut down every 2-3 minutes which is really annoying. The photo uploader is awful. Coupled by the bombardment of ads, ads, ads. A lot more feminine girly boys these days and so I was thinking that Scruff should change it's name to "sorta manly, but not really." Lol.

  • Good app, disappointed about chat feature Oct 18, 2018

    By Prydain12345
    I do generally like Scruff, as I think its better that many of its counterparts. However, I've always been disappointed that you want us to pay to be able to view messages and photos sent in chats after a certain point in the past, especially when this is such a basic (and FREE) feature in so many other dating apps. This is just my opinion, but I don't think I should have to pay to view my complete chat history with a guy, especially when this is such a basic feature of the app. I hope you’ll at least consider making that a free feature, as I think it would make a lot of guys very happy!

    It's a great DATING APP and attracts guys that have a much nicer attitude and approach to other people in general. Unlike Grindr, it seems that people have to be little sh*ts to be accepted. LUV scrudff so keep it going strong! Always advertising local and international events and has had virtual games and activities to do during COVIID! as much as it may seem to be for older Beary and hairy guyd its actually got a wide variety and much more choice! 😘

  • Paying member...update ruined experience Jun 17, 2019

    By connor from da hood
    I’ll start w/ saying Scruff for me has easily been one of my favorite hookup/dating apps, both in ease of use, selection of eligible great guys, and features for lying members. I deleted my Grindr soon after joining as a premium Scruff member because I felt I only ever easily found what I was searching for (with actual follow through) on this app. But all withstanding, this recent update has been abysmal from a technical perspective. Woofs and photo unlocks only seem to work half the time, often you have to fully back out of a chat & profile to see a new incoming message, and don’t even get me started on the photo viewing experience. The best part of premium IMO was the ability to quickly, easily, and fully see a members photo album; to get a better sense of if someone is your type. But now it is almost a pain to view a members full album. If you zoom too much or in a slightly careless way, it completely bumps you out of a user’s photo album back to their main profile, sometimes happening over and over. When you aren’t completely forced out of an album, half the time the zoom feature stops working all together. And will also frequently bump you to a completely different picture than you were viewing. It’s a mess to say the least.

    The overall use of the app is ok. The last update has some major performance issues. It keeps grinding to a halt. It is also constantly using network instead of using cache. The ads are always displayed in 2s. Location services and the "trip" function are a bit random in their selection. Would be nice if you could control it. You can only select a home town if the developers deem it worthy.

  • App redesign kills Scruff Dec 28, 2019

    By Priapus__
    Unfortunately, after paying hundreds of dollars over the years to the Scruff developers, I won’t be giving them another dollar and I’m not alone... The app is going the way of Grindr rapidly because of delusional decisions in management, seemingly related to social engineering causes. They significantly lowered the refresh rate of the online global grid which facilitated high speed meeting of guys presumably because it allowed for refined selection of potential interests and this competes with the philosophy of the app developers who would like to see a less shallow gay culture. You can’t force people to talk to ugly guys, we will just leave your app for one that does provide gay online dating services at the same level as Scruff used to, and considering the money in this space, it won’t take long. Remember how quick Grindr’s fall was? I just refuse to support a ridiculous development team limiting their app for people who pay over a hundred dollars each year for pro service... especially when it would seem that not data, but instead ideology, is the reason for the regression. At least you now have a great my digital gay yearbook app... young people can just use 4chan or reddit to meet hot young gay guys if your app is broken and artificially delayed, you’re not going to singlehandedly dismantle beauty worship, it’s a feature of sexuality and one that should be celebrated.

  • Black Lives Matter Jun 21, 2020

    By Cheki85
    I haven’t been on the apps in awhile because, you know, once in a lifetime pandemic and all, but I got tired of looking at cute boys outside my window. Tentatively, I dipped my toes back into the hookup app waters, just for a casual browse and perhaps an occasional chat. The events of the last few weeks, however, made me incredibly sensitive to the fragility of my black body and I wanted to send a message to everyone else on the grids: that black lives matter everywhere. I uploaded the BLM logo to my Grindr, Jack’d, and Scruff profiles. The first two accepted it with no problem, but Scruff rejected it multiple times until I sent a support request. They allowed it for about a day before rejecting it again, citing their guidelines. The same company that owns Scruff also owns Jack’d, btw. While it was annoying, Scruff’s decision felt like a continuation of the erasure and marginalization I’ve experienced as a queer black man on these apps. Erasure and marginalization that’s built into the very apps. Scruff shows little to no consideration for black people as it is but it’s a shame when Grindr has better practices than you.
