In the works for six months, the latest version of SCRUFF 4 has over 100 new features including video, and in a first for social apps, a transgender community profile option and search.
Among the other new features is the option to unsend messages, even if they were sent months ago; keeping notes on and organizing your favorite guys; and a convenient travel mode.
But what really sets the app apart is the ability for members to identify as transgender, find other trans members around the world, as well as SCRUFF guys looking for a trans partner.
“Community is extremely important to us,” said co-founder Johnny Skandros. “One year ago, SCRUFF became the first gay app to offer a community for military men and other men in uniform. I’m proud that we are the first app to add a community feature for transgender members.”
A quick perusal of the feature turned up trans members from a few miles to a few thousand miles away, meaning that a market certainly exists. With the social app market getting more and more crowded everyday, who will follow in SCRUFF’s inclusionary path?
