Today Grindr celebrates its 2nd birthday. Since launching in 2009, Grindr has grown into a social networking giant, with over 1.7 million users in 190 countries around the world (only four small island countries left to go! Comoros, Kiribati, Nauru, and Tuvalu). As the world’s largest all male location-based mobile social networking tool for the iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, Android, and compatible BlackBerry devices, Grindr has brought together a global community of users, many of whom have made meaningful connections with the world around them.
Currently, an astounding 441,000 Grindr members log in to the app on a daily basis and spend an average of two hours using the app. Each day 5.1 million chat messages and 454,000 pictures are sent within the app. At the same time, 8,000 new users are joining the Grindr network everyday. In just the past year, Grindr has increased its user base by 50% and has become the top grossing Social Networking app on the iTunes App Store in the US, also ranking 56 for all paid apps in the US.
We want to thank all the Grindr users for using our app, helping spread the word, and making Grindr what it is today. Here’s to another successful year ahead!
