GRINDR Celebrates 1 Year Anniversary This Week – And Escapes Apple’s Censorship

celebrates their
One Year Anniversary

this week they just surpassed  500,000 total users and about 150,000  daily users!

Luckily, they have escaped Apple’s recent censorship crusade. It is MY understanding, since Grindr is more of a  “photo-sharing” app and not a downloadable image app, this is why  Apple is allowing them to stay in business.

Grindr is  the largest all-male mobile location-based networking app. The craze has undeniably changed the game of social networking for gay and bisexual men around the world!

In case you have been under a rock, Grindr is the go-to place for gay, bi, and curious guys to meet, the location-based Grindr is free, fast, and fun. It uses GPS technology in your iPhone and Wi-Fi in your iPod touch to determine your exact location and instantly connect you with guys in your area.

Joel Simkhai, Grindr’s founder and CEO “Grindr’s growth has come from one source, our users. Grindr users are telling their friends about Grindr, they are blogging and Twittering about Grindr, and posting their success stories on their Facebook status updates.”

“We’ve been astonished that nearly half of our users are outside the United States. There are thousands of Grindr guys in London, Paris, Tokyo and Sydney.  Even Tehran, Iran and Astana, Kazakhstan have Grindr guys.”

54% of Grindr users are based in the United States, 17% in the United Kingdom and 9% in Australia.  France and Japan take the fourth and fifth top spots respectively.

One year old and growing daily with about 1,000-2000  new  sign ups every day!

And fun  sites  like  FUN WITH GRINDR     have  sprouted up!
