As we seem to get a lot of traffic on articles about Grindr here’s one that should make a particular group of our readers very happy! Meet’m is now available in the Windows Phone Store which gives you access to Grindr. Remember that Metrocrush did the same thing back in the Windows Phone 7 days but Grindr had it removed so buyers beware! In saying that if you’re desperate for the app on your windows phone and Scruff, Bender and GuySpy don’t do it for you; you can pick it up as a free download but an in app purchase is necessary to send messages.
Since then we are yet to hear a word from Grindr on their progress, furthermore any reference to any other versions of the app have been removed from their website and the link to the tweet has also been removed. Due to continued interest on a previous story we have reached out to Grindr for comment but they have not responded.
Personally, I don’t believe we’ll be seeing a version of Grindr for Windows Phone 7. Maybe we’ll see it on Windows Phone 8! Do you think we will see Grindr on Windows Phone any time soon?
Grindr this week has requested that Metrocrush, the third party grindr client, be removed from the marketplace. Those who paid for the app ($4.49) now are left with a message saying that Grindr has refused access to Metrocrush and that the app’s author is working on his options. I must say it seems strange for Grindr to block access to Windows Phone users when they dont have an official presence on the platform.
