    Have met so many great guys and made some lifelong friends! Super app, great tool. Scruff rocks!

  • Awesome


    Makes me happy

  • Easy breezy application

    by Stefen Ray

    I like how easy and intuitive this application is.

  • Love it

    by Useitorloseit

    Better than Grindr

  • Fun app

    by Paul Sautter-Walker

    Limiting the pics is lane but always able to find some fun

  • Way better than Grindr

    by Jlofan2damax

    Love it better than Grindr. Without a doubt.

  • Great Scruff

    by Scorpio_CA

    Great Way to meet other guys in my area. Scruff and all! I like the feature was viewed me and the Woof!! section

  • Woof woof


    Hot bearded men with muscles sign me up

  • Best gay app

    by Bleafy

    Love this app. It works!

  • Good gay app

    by fabiobhz

    Good app to meet other guys, the limit of the previous messages is not cool, but the app is great.

  • Battery hog

    by halber_mensch

    I like the app overall even if they are clearly after users' money more and more with each update. But its background updating and connectivity will majorly such your iPhone's battery dry, esp if you aren't in an area with great coverage. So beware when traveling - you can chat up the locals, but your phone will probably die before you connect.

  • Happy Scruffer

    by iTouch3348_

    Excellent app design. Great community using the app. I have met some great guys here. I'm happy with the current version.

  • Fun app

    by Chazzy78

    Good for meeting people both local and out of town!

  • Excelent

    by Wesley Cuadrado


  • Rob

    by G37 guy

    If you want to limit features to new subscribers, well ok. But, to limit how many pics you can view in someone's private pics when you could view all 10 before, that's just being chicken s--t! Still a fun app!

  • Better than grindr

    by Cttommyboy


  • Great App


    I love the filters, the private album and the other features. I wish we could post more than one pic on the public profile though.

  • A gay man

    by JayNwa147

    The best social ap for gay men. It's user friendly and one can easily send pics. Best of all, I've actually met some great guys through Scruff I'd've never otherwise have met!

  • Great site

    by aronross78

    Easy to use. Hot men. Good job scruff.

  • Works great

    by Guillermo Ortiz

    It's good. Guys can be a bit insulting especially the "no Asian" thing and the "I hate woofs" thing. I mean then why download the app. It keeps crashing. I think it's crashing now.

  • I like it

    by Rikan74

    Good app

  • Woof woof

    by SeeHad

    Well done, World Wide Web. Well done.

  • Yep, it works.

    by zentinal

    Occasionally it thinks I'm thousands of miles away from myself, but it mostly works!

  • Love it

    by Ryan Tiss

    Deff better than grindr ha!

  • Wooly good time.

    by Ty Jones’ Macbook Pro

    Great fun, good way to meet local men.

  • Superior to Grindr

    by luxuryrealtygroup

    Scruff is a great app, easy to use & rarely aborts. Grindr is a hot mess, freezes my iPhone & frequently aborts. Scruff doesn't use much battery power whereas Grindr drains my battery fast.

  • Great app

    by Ekim321

    Great app for result-oriented guys.

  • In adequate filtering

    by Readbelow$

    Most fundamental would be a filter for "top bunk" vs "bottom bunk"

  • Meh!

    by mikeydg


  • The men are generally better

    by ElderConradBro

    I have liked the app since early days. I am totally not fond of the new hypercategorization stuff, which just seems divisive and pointless to me. Especially since we're limited in how many we can pick. But, on the whole, I don't mind the cost and I think the caliber of men is consistently better than other apps.

  • Ruff Woof!!!

    by GQOCBOI

    Definitely best! Love that when I am traveling I can search people in that area, ahead of time. Also. PRO version is worth it!

  • Me gusta

    by Rkrdogt79

    Interesante app

  • Scruff rough

    by Boywrestler

    Over all good but I wish the messages were all in one place

  • Up hill not down!

    by tophersuess

    Unlike other dating/meet-up applications scruff keeps getting better with functions . Worth every penny! Met a lot of good guys. Major Woof!

  • This App Gets 5 Woofs!!!

    by EDP1071

    Simply put…I've met some beautiful awesome people on this app.

  • How I like 'em

    by N'theBunker

    Hot guys, usually hundreds of miles away, but such is life. And you may even get to chat with one of your favorite porn stars. I did! :D

  • Fun

    by MiamiMaverick

    It's fun.

  • Fug ya

    by Ahungstud

    Excellent user experience !

  • Gross

    by TheIngloriousBastard

    I created a profile and was able to chat with a few nice guys but my account was eventually deleted because a gun was visible in my picture - even though there is nothing against this in their guidelines. I am proud of my military service and it upsets me that I can't show myself in uniform because there is a gun by my side while there are countless headless profile pics of men with their hands down their briefs. Being a responsible gun owner defending our country? Bad. Anonymous men with deadly STD virus looking for a "pig" to top him while his "partner" watches? Well, that's just harmless fun. Pretty disgusting app anyways, I'll stick with OKCupid.

  • More stable then Grindr

    by Jahmerican

    Love the global grid aspect. Good app overall

  • Great and good community

    by wtoddm

    Smooth, excellent, and community based. Love it. Always genuine meets, friendly guys, and the occasional stud half a world away you befriend for a week.

  • Opinião

    by Dam recife

    Muito bom esse app

  • Could have more features.

    by zanezibar

    Better than grinr

  • Awesome

    by Tedman06

    Lots of fun

  • Decent but expensive

    by Bcub77

    I like the app. I think it is ridiculous that you can only see so much of the message without paying and only so many messages. The app is a bit over priced when you can go to Growlr for much cheaper. I do have to say completely beats Grindr and Adam4Adam

  • Fantastic App

    by document6m

    Just upgraded to Pro at the suggestion of a friend. Totally worth it, brilliantly written app. I've used Scruff off and on for a few years, found the HOTTEST GUYS on here. Keep up the good work boys...

  • Great dating app!!

    by User friendly 69

    Amazing app for meeting local guys anywhere you are, whether it's for dating, friends, or just a hook-up!! Haven't had any issues or problems yet so keep up the good work!

  • Pros and cons

    by Appletini—on rocks

    Pros: active community, nice woof system. I've met a few dudes through this app. Cons: premium features overpriced (IMHO) and there are a few weirdos out there

  • Woof!

    by blueshift8

    By far the best gay social app! Guys are nice, real, and *gasp* actually willing to be sexy in person in public! If he's out there, you'll find him here.

  • Good job

    by Josue Ayala


  • Love it

    by Deaf bear 81

    I love that app that able to meet more Bears and cubs!!! Rock on

  • Scruff

    by Adrian Cooper

    Great application

  • Color me Scruffy!

    by m2bma

  • Fun

    by markevnic72

    Fun diversion

  • Lame guideline update

    by Discreet69

    Was a nice app but now the Stupid upgrade won't let you post a profile pic unless your face is showing! If you're discreet like me you can't post a pic! No pic= No views!

  • Love it

    by Htown_Jon

    Great app

  • Super easy/fun

    by rovercove

    This app is very good. Only dislike is it doesn't always notify me when I have messages. Have tried everything.

  • Great!

    by chuckb42

    It keeps getting better.

  • Best gay app

    by i see u too

    It's my scruffadex >:)

  • Great App to Tap

    by Bodieboi76

    Grrrrreat App! Has brought much diversity to life's intimacies and a excellent gain of some really awesome new friendships! Thanks

  • Hot men from all corners of the globe

    by SuburbanMan

    Fun way to chat with men next door or on the nearest planet.

  • The new grindr

    by greyecho

    Full of nasty twinks and an administrator staff Who will suspend your account if you have a portion of your face it's not clear (sunglasses) however if you're 25, Have a six pack, big chest, and a lithe white creamy body you can have your junk out half of your pants. Yes better and no longer have an account

  • Love it!

    by WakaCub

    Awesome app, thanks!

  • Five stars for scruff

    by Drewdrop80

    I love this app it is a great way to meet local guys wherever you may be!

  • Solid System, Hot Men

    by RDLNSD

    The operating system is smart and intuitive. It's functions without issue but the real selling point are the men. Lots of quality men to chat with.

  • VC

    by Villagecub

    Just plainly the best app for meeting hot men. REAL men. No competition

  • Awesome.

    by Bendoverapp

    Great app. Functions great. Very useful. I have met some awesome friends on here.

  • Top dating app

    by Jacob du Plessis

    Prefer this app above many others. Ease of usage, ability to check out international scene, client base or market it draws and many more. Great job!

  • Love it

    by Foryou4life

    Super easy, wish it told you how many pics the members have though

  • Yeah it's $$ but its the best

    by mrmazzer

    I've tried Grindr, GuySpy, Mister, VGL you name it. This is the app that will connect you to the most scruffy dudes out there hands down. It's pricey but its worth it. There's no other app like it.

  • Great app

    by headrickJay

    I've met some really nice guys on this app and it's great when traveling and getting to know a new area.

  • Works for me

    by HalJH

    Very happy. Global and local search. More real, approachable guys than Grindr. Nice to have a site dedicated to the "non-twink". Much more navigable than other sites.

  • Awesome

    by KenDoll30

    Great app just keeps getting better

  • Very good App

    by Younger4older

    One of the best gay dating Apps so far!!

  • Good

    by Maxx :)

    Good app :)

  • Used to be better

    by jedbear

    Good but they dumped a lot of features and they seem to have started patrolling profiles. I guess success does that

  • Love this app

    by NYCmikey

    Great for the travel that I always do.

  • Love it

    by Shadowking36

    Love this app, easy move in, not a ton of advertisements. And the guys on here are so much hotter than other apps (not that, the app itself has anything to do with that), im just making a statement! Download it today!

  • Sexy and fun

    by Lex8504

    I love this app

  • Diamonds in the Woof

    by @WelchysGripe

    Like any dating app, there are plenty of wackos on here and annoying people… butts scruff as a mature, kind and outgoing membership and I have met some great people on here.

  • A nice way to meet friends while traveling!

    by Frank Acevedo

    I've met some great friends on this app. Especially when traveling. It's a great way to connect without necessarily hooking up!

  • Amazing!

    by Game30

    Best app for gay hookups and bf material.

  • Fun app

    by Vespaguy

    This app has been so much fun... I've meet guys from all over the world. The kind words of strangers speaks volumes. Our global village seems more connected by our ability to reach out and speak to men close by and across the ocean. I've has been a pleasure to connect both in realtime and virtual for great verbal banter......I the updates have progressively improved and made it more user friend. I do pay for the arms consider it worth it for the added ads, and expanded searches. I have gotten lost many more nights than I care to mention talk to men on this app. Thank you guys

  • Yummy men!

    by Nebrfarmboy

    Great app for meeting our furry friends :)

  • The best

    by Richieash79

    Fantastic!! And FUN!

  • Decent

    by AdonisSMU

    Its an ok app. It feels cluttered and I dont like paying to block people who are harassing me.

  • Awesome

    by Middleast ;)

    If you don't like queens and enjoy the company of real men download this app!

    by Austin Lee

    Cool app for connecting with other guys.

  • Great app

    by c2 resource

    Good tools to check out potential compatability .. Messages get through and good diverse quality of guys

  • The best gay meetup app

    by zerotimesinfinity

    Exponentially better than Grindr or any of the others (it actually works, better feeling of community, better guys, more features). I don't mind paying for an app that does what it's supposed to. Thousands of people pay for Grindr Xtra and all it does is generate misery.

  • Fun app

    by RiverCityBeef

    Fun to checkout guys in the area and maybe meetup.

  • Great App

    by Guidocub

    Thank you Johnny, Jason and Joey!!

  • Good Stuff!

    by welikemondays

    Well designed, reliable, and... ahem... useful.
