Grindr Launching On Android, For The Both Of You Without iPhones (To Be Followed By Blendr For Heteros)

With most other gay cruising apps (like Skout and Encountr) already available on all mobile phone platforms, category leader Grindr is finally joining the Android kids: the iPhone and BlackBerry app, which claims nearly 300,000 daily active users around the globe, is launching its program for Google-powered phones on Monday. So no longer will AT&T customers be unable to cruise their T-Mobile neighbors. Rejoice! Meanwhile a straight version of the app, rumored to be called Blendr, is launching soon. (Grindr creator Joel Simkhai has already registered the domain name.)

    Better late than never, Grindr – the rest of the world realised the iPhone is total bollocks about 12 months ago. Android may be the “kid” in the smartphone market, but it’s already making iphone and blackberry look out of date. Best phone I’ve ever had is running android.

    It’s really unstable. Even more than the manhunt app. (I did not realize it was even possible!) I’m sticking with grindRoid. That’s been working for quite a while on my android phone. If you google search hard enough, you should be able to find the apk.
