Young gay hot men! Try Scruff!  Hank 68  5 star

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!


Not worth the cost just to filter by what you want to see  Ryan55666  1 star

The pro filters are not improved enough compared to non-pro filter search. This is basically Grindr now...


Scruff is excellent  StEvEn_assman  5 star

Really enjoy the app - lots of beautiful men!!

To hard to use keep it simple Simple simple simple great app but hard to use simple simple simplicity


Has bugs showing when people are online  hipno121  4 star

would be 5 stars but i ran into bugs to where people I would talk to, would have been online 15 minutes ago but their profile says online still instead of saying online 15 mins ago. miles and age have bugs that need some work too ;)


Terrible 3rd party tech support  Biscuit0780  2 star

Terrible 3rd party hired technical support who don’t even actually pay attention to profile content or photographs. They just selectively blanket sensor photos and then you have to contest and then they will permit them to be posted.


Garbage  sax6575  1 star

Not sure if human beings run this app or not. After having a selfie removed multiple times for violating their rules/regulations, I reached out to their support staff to figure out why my perfectly acceptable photo was being removed. They sent me a canned response claiming I can’t use a landscape photo as my profile photo... I guess, a male identifying human can be easily mistaken with an Ansel Adams photograph.


Getting prudish?  Midmed  3 star

I just logged on, and found out that my picture from summer in a bathing suite was too racy, and removed. I hope Scruff doesn’t become the new Grind. I’ve always liked scruff for its community of men, not twinks and little boys


Hookup app that pretends not to be  Piercewm  1 star

The developers don’t respond to feedback and support is nonexistent


I now prefer Grindr  MarcKaeden  1 star

I can’t even upload a photo without it being removed or moved every 5 minutes. Deleted and will not redownload!


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 ⭐️⭐️⭐️

It’s very annoying.


Loving scruff  Allmindbody  5 star

I have been using Scruff for years and find it easy to use, great functionality and user-friendly. Every upgrade gets better and better


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.


Upgrade or denied access  Ddddbbbbdddd  1 star

You just had an upgrade 2 weeks ago and now you're forcing me to upgrade again denying me access to the Scruff app until I do. It should always be a choice!!!


Review  horrisfalcon  5 star

The app works well for me


Too many restrictions  Whatevernameunder30letters  1 star

With every update there is less functionality for the free version. It’s now at the point where you can’t even see chat history with whoever you’re talking with. Great way to push people to use other apps!


Good app, but “Hide” feature is missing something  ads5114  4 star

I’ve chatted to many nice guys on this thing and built up some friendships from it. However there are certain people who I don’t particularly want to block, but still don’t want to see. Hide does a decent job. However, it’d be nice if we didn’t see when people we’ve hidden have looked at our profiles. I understand having them pop up when they send through a message, but most of the time these people just look at me and say nothing. Gets annoying to see them show up.


Great site  Damo3939  5 star

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


Scruff is great  Scruff1985  5 star

Think its a good app. Easy to use and good layout.


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!

Great app  Alley Cat 28  5 star

Met some great guys on here. The app itself doesn't use up all your data, and never crashed on me. A+


Scruff is great  Aaron1011  4 star

Scruff is a great App and very user friendly. It's just a shame most the very hot guys are on the global grid.
