Grindr - The app that started the geosocial dating craze, Grindr is a gay-only app for i Phone, Android and Black Berry that displays, in grid form, all of the male users in close proximity who might be available.
You are shown a headshot of another Tinder user who is currently nearby: Swipe right if you’re interested, swipe left if you aren’t.
If two Tinderers are mutually interested, a chat box opens so that they can get to know each other.
