SCRUFF Reviews


Terrible Support System  sora:{  1 star

My account was suspended for no reason because they thought I was underage. I have already sent them the following verification required. Very slow on responding.


Best Site  Showtimetime51  5 star

Rock On


Doesn’t work on LTE  Akeixbhdjskchdjs  1 star

Don’t download it if you like to use it for travel. Won’t work unless you’re hooked up to Wi-Fi. If you use 4G 5G or LTE, it will just tell you you’re not connected. They are aware of the problem and are ignoring it


Moderators are ridiculous!  Pvega83  1 star

I’ve used this app for a long time. Recently, the moderators have become so picky with profile pictures! And that’s not even the main problem! This is mostly a hook-up app and the men who use it are mostly flakes! I don’t care that someone decided to use a filter for their profile pic. I can see past that. The fact that we can’t even use those kids of pics is ridiculous. Lets face it: I’m not interested in what he looks like on here. I’m interested in intimacy. Moderators can shove it. Next is to delete my profile and the app. Good luck! You’ll need it.


Stop sending notifications for spam  Fitguy111  1 star

I’ve tried changing settings. Have “pro” version. Still getting daily notifications for spam as though it’s a private message. So annoying.


Developer responses are the best feature  INWDC  1 star

The one thing Scruff does well is have their social media troll respond to every review. This app isn’t horrible but it is a waste of your valuable time. Do you really want to spend what precious time you have on earth chatting with people you will never meet? Nah, there are much more rewarding things, this ain’t it.


Bad app  Blackxsa  1 star

The app have so many problems and weird users And poor support for your problems.


Black squares ?  Beefydude68  2 star

What’s with all The black squares ? It’s not aesthetically pleasing


Bad changes  BBoyce84  2 star

The whole photo guidelines are annoying! Gave up


Disappointing  Harpep  1 star

I really don’t know if it’s because of where I am on this beautiful earth. But it’s taken 26:00 hrs and counting to receive my VERIFICATION CODE. I’m deleting.

The clue of how good it is in the default search  Schosk  2 star

I use apps like Scruff to hook up primarily for NSA hook ups. The fact that when you open the app it defaults to the global tab rather than the nearby tab regardless of your wishes shows me that it’s not serious about facilitating hook ups because there is almost a infinitesimally small chance of hooking up with someone that’s 15,000 km away. I really never have a wish to look at peoples profiles that I have no likely chance of hooking up with and the descriptions within the profiles need to be able to be more descriptive as regards to sexual position and role so that I can quickly determine if someone is going to be a match or not. Grindr has its many faults but scruff will always be number 2 to Grindr if it doesn’t think more about how users actually use these apps. Thank you insert app name here for your thoughtful, relevant and personalised response to my review. It gives me great confidence that someone has actually read my review and it will be considered in future development and the fact that the wording is exactly the same as you have responded with to so many other reviews doesn’t at all make sceptical that it was actually meant just for me.


I. Think scuff is a hot gay site  fISTDOGBOI60  5 star



Photo reviewers have lost the plot  ssal1  1 star

Changes to Scruffs photo profile guidelines are being enforced to an extreme. Let’s use Facebook and Instagram as a benchmark for acceptable content; you can post a photo in your gym shorts or at the pool on these apps. On Scruff, you can’t do this without risking being reported. It’s toxic and undermines the app’s culture which was built upon openness. What’s worse is the enforcement is all over the place. You may be arbitrarily reported by other users, who can weaponise the reporting tools when they feel spurned. Stay away until scruff gets their act together.


6 out of 10  Ilikeblokes  3 star

Generally I say this app is a lot more reliable than its biGgest competition that well all know in regards to its features constantly working. As a paid member I’d say some things (more recently) are a disappointment, though. The number Of saves you can have for people’s profiles. As a global app (for a traveler- and a paid member) its not really enough. Reply through the push notification instead of going directly in to the app- has never worked. You should delete this seeing it hasn’t ever been fixed. The filtering menu doesn’t really work that well. I think In Scruff it’s next to pointless to use filtering options because it has little to no effect on narrowing the search results. The biggest thing I was annoyed about is the fact that I uploaded a new pic that was was removed by Scruff’s photo reviewers. I understand that you have guidelines, but, oh man! If a guy can’t take a photo in gym shorts in this day and age and it be completely above board. Then you have lost me as a paying member. Purely because I think you have taken your photo guidelines one step too far. I was actually dumbfounded and offended slightly that my photo was rejected and you couldn’t even put my previous one back up. Before I was a 8/10 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Now, 6/10 ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Very good App  EnforcedWarwick  5 star

Very good application, it is easy to connect with other men on here. (Just like the other dating apps, this app is pretty user friendly).


Chance to say more  JulianUP  4 star

I quite like scruff, it gives more chance to describe yourself and find more meaningful relationships.

Eau Fraiche

Problem  Eau Fraiche  2 star

Your app seems to only work for me on Wi-Fi but all of a sudden it doesn’t work on my cellular network. I don’t know how or why, I even deleted and reinstalled the app but it still doesn’t work on my data network compared to Wi-Fi. Please fix, thank you.


Best of the Best  CoreyLake  5 star

Best dating app period.


Greatest gay app. Ever  AndyMPLI  5 star

This app is for meeting men although not just another dating app. Scruff offers much much more. You can meet others near you or anywhere you’re planning on visiting. Insights to events local and all over. Several ways to let others know your interested in getting to know them. Definitely the best app out there.


Best App to Connect  zenkeeper  5 star

Point Click and Connect

Nice app  abracaribe  5 star

It’s a very easy chat and cero drama people are nicer


It’s what You want for this type of AP  Athjock  5 star

Out of all the hook-up sites, Scruff consistently the best quality of selections to choose from


Better than Grindr  Perched456  4 star

I was on Grindr for years but they have become an app to advertise silly games and products to gay men, along with other problems. The guys I met and talked to on Scruff are kind and honest. Actually more respectful. I do have a few concerns, there are mostly white and older guys on here which is fine but I would like to see more men around my age. My biggest complaint is that a shirtless pic gets flagged but I see other profiles with much more scandalous pics. I don’t understand it.


Annoying daily promo notifications  RacerCB_SF  2 star

Love the guys in here, but wow, can you say annoying notifications?! Horrible. This app used to be great. What happened?!


Great site  Damo3939  5 star

Great site, never any technical issues and doesn't crash


Scruff is great  Scruff1985  5 star

A1 app for chat and hookups 💦  Collie-1  5 star



Great app  Dalmatianstation  5 star

How could you give a window to a world of global beefcakes a bad review? Love Scruff, its so nice to see who my people are and how they are living in other parts of the world. Good job


Better than Grindr  Petes32  5 star

Much better app than Grindr. You chat to more real decent men.


Local Default  Bolder1  4 star

Please, please, please make LOCAL the default profile page on the App rather than Global. 99% of ScruffPro App users like myself, are seeking LOCAL friends. Seeking long distance friends is a very small niche market, and surely these are the people who should have to choose to move to Global profiles. Why should the vast majority of ScruffPro users like myself, have Global friends profiles presented to them by default and then be forced to seek out LOCAL friends every time we use this great App. You know this makes sense. I would have given 5 Stars to Scruff but for this problem! Here's to the future when I can give 5 Stars!
