    Not yet is grindr available for android market. But there is something relatively close. Its new and mimmicks grindr without background running but give it a try. Look up EncountR in the app store. So far there are little peoplen on so we need more glbt ppeople to sign on!

    Oh dear. Put on a flame-resistant suit; we have a lot of homophobes on these forums, unfortunately.

    I'm glad there's something for the LGBT folks on the market, though. :)

    Nice app. Though disappointed that although you say you want more "LGBT" users, it's explicitly an app for Gay & Bi men only. You've got the potential to outdo grindr here, by being inclusive to all flavors of queer. I'd love to be able to specify that I'm interested in queer people of all genders, and see the people fitting those criteria that are nearby.

    Feels a lot like GrindR. We'll see if it's as effective.

    I wish, GrindR would release an Android version.

    try miumeet. it has st8 and gay users but seems to have a lot more people than any of the alternatives. Hopefully the grindr folks will eventually see that android's growth potential makes it a more-than-viable alternative to the apple walled garden...

    Encountr SUCKS!! At least for my phone it does.

    I don't understand why it's so hard for someone to mimick Grindr and call it something different and bring it to Android.

    I'm a newbie to this forum for Androids, I've always been a BB user. The BB forum is so much more gay friendly with like 1000+ gay topics/posts etc.

    Ima make a gay group for us gay Android users...LOL

    Cheers!!! :D

    Grindr is allegedly working on an Android version. I signed up - months ago - for being notified when it's available.

    Then 4-6 weeks ago, I got an email to sign up for the beta when it's available and did so.

    Still no beta (of course they could have excluded me from the beta testing). Hopefully soon.

    Same here mate, haven't heard anything. Purpll is a far more better app then Encountr but again there simply isn't the amount of users that Grindr has.....

    Both Encountr and DList suck big time because no one is using them. Here in Europe at least. Nearest search results I'm getting are somewhere in Ohio.....?! And for DList I have to have GPS enabled all the time to get ANY results?! Is it expected that I'd be looking for guys on the street or something? GPS doesn't work inddors.

    A messenger without a base of customers is useless. We want Grindr for Android (period).

    Btw, I really start to envy my best friends with iPhones and Blackberries, who seem to get laid on every corner via Grindr these days... :-S

    Grindr is falling behind but a great app Scruff is available. Still in beta but working pretty well and updates to keep conning. Do an engine search for "Scruff for Android" and you will find it.

    It seems that's it's not a beta, it works fine on my HTC - PC36100 as I could check with my iPhone roommate :)
