SCRUFF App Tips, Tricks and Rules

SCRUFF Reviews


Bs app  james.rice42  1 star

My profile photo was removed for no apparent reason (literally just a picture of my face) when there are dozens of other profiles of men in underwear or violating other reasonable photo guidelines. Only reason given was “other”. As far as the app itself, most features are only available to paid members. You can only see very few nearby profiles and only see the last few messages of your conversation threads. The album feature is nearly unusable unless you’re willing to shell out $15 bucks a month. The app is very useful for seeing the 20 closest headless torsos. I won’t be wasting any more of my time on here and would advise you don’t either.

Disappointed  Summer waters  1 star

Very disappointed with this site, every time you update they take something more away from you. I don’t mind occasional Add, but they keep trying to force you to Upgrade to pro at a ridiculous price!


Free too restrictive; paid too expensive  LeChatParle  1 star

Messages start getting hidden way too soon in a chat to force you to pay for their premium version, but the premium version is way over priced. $15/m to chat with people? I’d consider a dollar or two a month.


V5.6024 connection errors!  Ali_Mo79  2 star

Updated and the app doesn’t work anymore, connection errors on WiFi and LTE. Don’t upgrade to the latest version!


It’s the men  KevSeanD  4 star

The app is great - lots of nice features, easy to use, reliable - but the men on Scruff seem more uptight and pretentious than those on other apps. But, in the end, gay men hunting one another is never pretty.

Hello!!  ross x4  4 star

I am on all of these sites but do not check in all that often ., I find that on Scruff ppl seem to be be less desperate & uptight - Also other sites like these have so much more ageism issues ! I have friends who are 24 up to late 90,s The only important difference at any age is Are you relevant . In an older mans life it is are you still relevant or were you never at all ?!! ❤️

So far it’s been a great app. Wish the upgrades weren’t so costly.


Big Bug on XS Max  Khross30  3 star

Whenever I spend extended periods looking at profiles and chatting, the app will randomly make my phone do some kind of quick reset. The screen goes black with a spinning wheel and about 5-10 seconds later I’m back at my lock screen. Not sure what’s causing the issue, it usually happens right after I’ve tapped a profile to open.



Of all the gay hookup apps, it’s the only one that works all the time - no matter where I’m traveling in the world.


It’s for casual sex  mitchds84  5 star

It’s for casual sex, Which rocks, gotta love being a man, it’s a privilege. So it does the job. And who knows maybe you can find more then one night stands?!


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.


Uhhh... what?  Xanderp23  2 star

I’ve just stopped being a “pro” member and have found out you can’t block people!! What the hell? This is just stupid


Ethnicity isn’t really optional  offsnickname  3 star

Actually ethnicity isn’t optional and the other optionals in your profile aren’t either. Black, White, Asian, Mixed Race etc. Why use a quasi-scientific system used by fascist regimes? There is only the Human Race, Homosapien. A chihuahua is not a different race of Canis Familiaris to a doberman. Shall we bring back terms like “half caste” and measure skulls to determine how mixed a mixed race person is? They aren’t optional because you must choose so you can unlock all the rest in your area. It’s bad enough that you have to choose a ridiculous “community” that are nothing more than another way to categorise each other. Not to mention the “chasers” who are I assume only interested in the hunt, or rainbows, or dreams. Fix it Scruff, you are only perpetuating stereotypes and cultural division, not helping the community to find each other.


Latest update caused the app unable to run  Je92476  1 star

Now the app won't even open...


The new Grindr  MarcKaeden  2 star

That sums it up.✌🏾


good  Xantron191  5 star

good app but why have the past like 10 updates have the exact same patch notes?

False advertising about advertising!  tyto alba  1 star

Scruff PRO is specifically marketed as an “ad free experience,” however I am a Scruff PRO subscriber and they still populate my messages section with “alerts” which are sponsored ads. Also, today when I logged into Scruff, I was shown two full screen ads in a row. My subscription is current and the app recognizes it, so there is no excuse except that they are falsely advertising an ad-free experience that they do not provide.


Thumbs up  FrancoAmericano  5 star

So much more than what you think.


Easy to use!!! The AP too!  SonnyDaysSleepingTheCloudsAway  5 star

So simple and clear. Meeting some wonderful guys... and some interesting guys

Jersey - Florida Boy

Awesome Website  Jersey - Florida Boy  5 star

Both thumbs up here. Easy to navigate website. Definitely 5 Star. 👍🏼


Scruff Finder  ScotGorman  5 star

This IS the app to find Scruff guys in your area! I’m a pleased member.

NYC Ginger man.

Love it  NYC Ginger man.  5 star

Meeting lots of men! They all want to do things to me, dirty things, which makes me hot and bothered, which makes me want more SCRUFF! Plus the match stack is fun! You get to see who wants you, though.... sometimes that can be a reality check, thank god! I am beautiful, not that that matters I just am. 😜


best app for this arena  sf-ss  5 star

This is the most well-made and best operating app for gay dating. It never crashes, there are no ads really, and it has a large amount of functionality for free, as opposed to other apps that are pretty much pointless unless you pay.


Fun at the start  Crv1971  1 star

When you first sign up people see your profile like crazy and makes you feel like wow this is a great social app. After a couple weeks if you haven’t subscribed no one to views your profile. My list is full of guys that are online anymore. Why would I shell out my hard earned money for a dead app?


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!

Love scruff  Jammy Burris  5 star

Brilliant app always enjoy it.

Alley Cat 28

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.
