Grindr is a networking app for bi-curious, bisexual and gay men looking for like-minded men for fun or a relationship. With millions of registered men from over 190 countries worldwide, it beats the competition to be the best social site that is available on both mobile and PC. The fact that it allows subscribers to locate other users by their location through the geolocation data from their devices is an added advantage as it makes it easy to connect. They get to chat, share pictures and location with each other instantly adding to the app’s popularity.
Grindr is a mobile app that is downloadable for free across mobile platforms like iOS, Android, and Blackberry. However, since it’s been growing and spreading like wildfire becoming the most popular and largest gay-oriented mobile app, a PC version is long overdue. Grindr PC version although not official yet, it can be done without the need to root your phone. The downloading and installation is easy and takes a few minutes. Here is how to use Grindr on laptop or PC:-
· The first step you need to take is to install an Android emulator like BlueStacks on your computer. These emulators allow you to download any mobile app to PC.
· After installing the emulator, launch it on your PC which should bring you an interface similar to that of a tablet running on Android.
· Go to the Play Store app and search for Grindr then download it for installation on your personal computer. Launch the app when the installation is complete and start enjoying the Grindr app on your PC.
What to expect
If you follow the above steps correctly, your app should be up and running on your PC within minute. You will get the exact same features from the mobile version with the first step being to create your profile. This is where you provide your personal information together with your profile picture in order to start connecting with people. After you have created your profile, it’s time to make friends and to do this, start a search with your preferences in mind. This should bring you men in the categories you are interested in.
With at least 300 men available for your viewing pleasure, you can’t fail to find a number of matches that you can engage with until you find the right fit. Tapping on any profile should give you more information about that particular person and also show you options to connect with them via texts and photos. Chat with two people at the same time easily by switching the tabs.
Unlike the free mobile version that has running ads which are annoying, the PC version is free of search nuisances. You don’t have to pay a dime for this, unlike the Grindr Xtra that comes with extras like the lack of adverts which subscribers have to pay for. This makes the PC version way better as you don’t need to pay to get these and other extra features on your Grindr. You also get to chat on a bigger screen while typing on a keyboard which is more convenient than doing it on the phone. And that is how to use Grindr on laptop or PC without paying a dime for it.
